Now I've see the ad's for the game, and I've even bought it.
But I can't see a difference from this version and the previous (other than the expansion being included.

Anyone got any clue or info on what graphic engine changes were made.

did they say something about an engine change? They just included a few different textures (the original ones were really bad) and removed a few bugs.

Taken from their website:


"Divinity II – The Dragon Knight Saga is an epic role-playing game on PC and Xbox 360, that combines the complete adventures of the legendary dragon Knight.

This incredible RPG includes the entirely remastered and improved version of Ego Draconis, the original adventure of the Divinity II saga. The content of this edition as well as its graphic engine have both been much improved and overhauled, in order to provide a more beautiful and richer game experience!"

They've added a few shader effects and improved lightning. Changing an engine would require two years, no less. I think everyone should stop making a fuss over it. They made a big, fat, mostly lying claim. Get over it. Few shader effects, better lightning effects. Over.

maybe they optimized it, I dunno.

I'm strongly considering getting this game though, I really miss a good RPG.. not for the story so much as the hack n slash adventure through tons of monsters

Not to derail this thread, but feel free to PM me any negative or positive opinions you may have regarding this game.. I could use some help to make up my mind.

Could you be any more unnecessarily rude? Find somewhere a list of the changes made to the engine, then contradict them and call it a big fat mostly lying claim.

The engine HAS been improved/upgraded. Animations in the distance are smooth instead of jerky sprites, I get higher FPS and absolutely no lag like I did with the original version, the water and its effects have been much improved. Even if they were the only changes made, it'd be well worth it. They're the changes I've noticed so far and I've only walked up the path from the Zeppelin at the beginning of the game.

but they still weren't able to make a decent AA. Everything maxed out and it still looks crappy.

It looks really great to me. Sure, it has some jagged edges, but really it's no better or worse than many other modern games if you think about it. I guess it's all down to personal opinion really.

For example; I've never really been one to take much stock in graphics. If a game has great graphics, then okay, sure, it's awesome to look at AND play. However, if it's got terrible graphics, then as long as it has a good story and good gameplay then I don't really care.
