    I'm not sure what you mean. Are you implying that no games have achieved proper real-time shadow rendering? Because there are plenty of games that have.


    But years ago, on an incomplete project, I suppose they wouldn't have shadows done yet.
    That second one, I'm implying that.

    Many games do have the characters cast full shadows on surfaces, but I'm 99% certain that Freelance Police did what we did with Season One, and just have a sort of blobby circular shadow beneath the characters. Only in stuff prerendered out of Maya (like trailers, and animation tests like those videos on YouTube) do the characters actually appear with full cast shadows like that.
  • So what you're saying is that this footage may have been made using Maya, instead of an actual game engine?

    Shouldn't there be someone at TTG who has worked on SMFP back then who would know this for a fact?

    That gamed rocked so hard! So cool to see it again after all those years. I think I should try 2 find it and play it again...
    Thanks for that one!


    Err... what?! Haha.
  • Apparently there are some people out there sufferring from a severe case of aesthetic confusion and/or who are completely unaware of the production cancellation from which those video tests came from.

    Or, maybe he was responding to an earlier comment and talking about HTR.

    That was one of the lamest parts of the season. I really didn't think it was funny at all

    Yes. That's probably why Jake's 99% sure about it ;)

    They're definitely renders, not in-game. Whether or not they're from Maya, I couldn't verify for certain.
  • You know you're a geek when: you can determine the exact modeling studio and rendering engine used to render an image.
