Mafia III Discussion
Well if it's the case of a game engine limitation (physics tied to frame rate) then it would make sense.
But why they didn't just have it from the get go makes absolutely no sense as they could easily have averted this entire scandal.
Otherwise if the engine allows for it I see no reason to how modders wouldn't be able to just change the frame limit themselves, which is almost always the case. (Never heard of otherwise but who knows)
I tried play Mafia III and for me it seems to by all right - I didn't found any problem on full details.
But may be somebody will explain me why is so much hysteria about 30fps?
On youtube I found compare video from other game: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tcJeq_1ubk
For me only one diference is there that machine gun in a helicopter had more fire flame effect then on 30fps half screen.
That is my opinion.
Blu-Ray might be filmed as most movies in 24fps, but some is actually double framed and motion blured up to 30fps, you got those aswell as in games some actually do fix it, some don't. Don't really like Blu-Ray movies either way
But the hysteria is because of technology and progress i suppose, for example as a 60hz pc monitor might only show you 60fps (not saying at all you can't have higher, just that it will be less useful tho it can be shown to your brain to be alot smoother), the normal thing the last 10-15 years have been between 75-120hz monitors wich would after a time make you notice all the slowness in other areas be it movies or games, and seeing as so many old games set the bar so high with FPS and technology setting the bar so high except consoles and movies for some reason, it is weird for alot of people to recieve slower input to their brain as they are used to alot faster input, but its also pretty weird since most games don't ever lock their FPS unless they need it for ingame videos or cinematic effects on models etc etc. but the thing is that its still very uncommon for games to lock their FPS on pc because of technology and the high FPS bar. Hope i answered some of your questions.
PS: i don't mind 30fps when it's done for a reason, but on a 144hz monitor and without a reason, i just hated that damn lock, as it felt so slow and juddery for me, wich is also the reason why i don't like Blu-Ray's.
I believe there is a good use case for 60 FPS in animation:
* Updated game trainers and cheats daily
* Get notified when new cheats are added
* Request which games get new trainers
* Priority support with any problem
