...How.

I cant find any working shaders, but the texture pack works, thought my game isnt nearly as beautiful and realistic as comment 43 and 33.
#259 to #208 - anon (03/25/2013) [-]
Shaders isn't compatible with 1.5.1 yet
User avatar #250 to #208 - hollyisthebest (03/25/2013) [-]
Also, your computer might explode from the level of detail the shader packs and texture pack have. So, at least, make sure you have a dedicated graphics card to run it.
User avatar #246 to #208 - hollyisthebest (03/25/2013) [-]
The shader is responsible for the realism. Hence, "Sonic Ether's UNBELIEVABLE shaders"
The shaderpack Seus is right underneath "Shaderpacks:"
Did you even bother to look for it?
User avatar #303 to #246 - temporalguardian (03/25/2013) [-]
And it doesn't work. Now re-read my other comment.
#106 to #57 - anon (03/25/2013) [-]
the shaders mod isn't for 1.5
User avatar #133 to #106 - hollyisthebest (03/25/2013) [-]
And that's why you don't instantly upgrade to the new version as soon as it comes out.

I play Mario for the gameplay, i play LoZ for the story, gameplay and puzzles. I don't play call of duty, because i can't see the fun in running around continiously shooting your fully automatic death ray at people, and managing to survive 10 bullet wounds before dying.

i can see it being fun to some people, but personally, i find genre, gameplay and the puzzles in a game to be the greatest fun factor in games.

I hate when people make this argument and post pictures of older games (not talking about Minecraft here). It's like, do you guys not realize those graphics were top notch for the time? Also the analogy is stupid. Playing video games with bad graphics is more like watching porn with really ugly "actors."

I await your red thumbs.

I think it would be more like really young actors

Flatout 2. An old game, and I just dare any of you ******* prove to me it would look better with bad graphics and bad physics. Faster computers equal more possibilities. Get over yourself hipserfags

For it's time, the first GTA was revolutionary in both graphics and gameplay.


Still playing it as well, enjoying it more than most current games.
#140 to #62 - jinkazama (03/25/2013) [-]
GTA 1 was far from revolutionary as far as graphics go. It was on the ps1, which launched with better looking titles. It doesn't look much better than a snes game, only much bigger

People who say graphics dont matter are either full of **** or shouldnt share their opinions about video games. Video games (as the name implies) is a visual medium thus the visuals do matter, that doesnt mean they need to be realistic but they do need to communicate effectively to its audience. I will give you two parallel examples lets say you buy a harry potter book, does the type face matter? Well normally one would say no but if it was too small to read, or in a font that was so hard to read that it made the book a chore to try and read you have distroyed your content through the means. If you then buy that same harry potter book this time as an audio book, but the volume was so quiet that you couldnt hear it normally and the only time you could hear it was to ramp it up so loud that you were getting super loud static, you will have a missurable time with that audio book.

TL;DR version Graphics do matter because they are one of only a few ways that the medium of video games communicates to its audience. People confuse this with REALISM which you do not need. Graphics are very important, realism is not.

This is pretentious gamer elitism at it's finest.

A game with horrible graphics versus games with stylized/fitting graphics are two very different things. You can play an ugly 8-bit, 32-bit or fully 3D game and not feel immersed because they distract you. But if a stylized game that doesn't have cutting edge "Battlefield 3" graphics can still perform better than most mass marketed games because they fit the style of the game and gameplay.

**** you, OP, ugly games are **** to play. Go play the first ET or Bubsy 3D and tell me that graphics don't matter.
User avatar #295 to #232 - nikinor (03/25/2013) [-]
I have to say I agree, but not agree.
You've got to atleast put SOME effort into making the game look good, otherwise it's a completely different story. I can stand games like Zelda, where they were limited to the technology of their time, but in a time like this, if you're making ******* Mario 64 variants, you're bound to end up in the gutter.
User avatar #323 to #295 - Visual (03/26/2013) [-]
Your statement goes right back around to it needing to fit the game or be stylized.

Preparing for red thumbs.   
On older games for the NES, SNES, N64, etc... I don't give a 			****		 about the graphics.. Those are the best graphics available for the time period they were made. I'll still play all the old Mario games and all the old Zelda games and the graphics wont bother me. But if a game were released tomorrow that had the graphics of an old SNES game it would bug me. Video games should be played for the story, but the quality of the graphics make it more appealing to the eye. Why can't we just say that we play video games for both story and graphics because I know thats why I play them. Perfect example is the Zelda series. My favorite Zelda game of all time is Majora's Mask. It had good graphics for the time it game out but compared to the more recent zelda games its blocky and grainy. The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess is my second favorite Zelda game. Because the graphic style fit the story. They made it look dark and depressing and thats how the story was. In my opinion having a good story with bad graphics is pointless, and having good graphics with a bad story is pointless. Both of the elements must blend to make a good game. If a video game is going to be made make it the best it can be with a good story and good graphics.

yeah. for a summarized version not using any specific game, both story and graphics are essential to any good game because they both make the other better.

I like high-quality graphics because it's an indicator of how much effort was put into making the game and a testament to the capabilities of new technology. And considering I might pay $300 for a new console and $60 for a new game, I want the technology to wow me.

That isn't to say the quality of graphics is directly proportional to how fun the game is. But it certainly helps.
#142 to #139 - mishdogg (03/25/2013) [-]
console gamers keep looking for ways to justify playing with bad graphics :-) It's ok to be mediocre, no sin in that. Someone has to be...

Meanwhile you have to live with the fact that no matter how many consoles you buy, you'll always be 'lacking' in the graphics aspect. You're always gonna have that nagging feeling that things could look much better, that and you're having only half the fun. And the only thing you're looking forward to is finishing the game so you can sell it as a consolation for all the fun you never had...

I feel bad for you.
#153 to #142 - desacabose (03/25/2013) [-]
You are exactly what this post is about
User avatar #150 to #142 - allamericandude (03/25/2013) [-]
Consoles are more user friendly. I have a "gaming laptop" (basically a normal laptop with a really good graphics card), and while I do like the higher graphics, it's sometimes a pain to get it all to work right. I like consoles because you can just sit down, turn it on, and play. No hassle, no stress--which is the whole point of video games.

So yeah, PC gaming is great, but you've got to work (and pay) for it.

Also, you sound like a snob.
#151 to #150 - mishdogg (03/25/2013) [-]
You really don't know what you're talking about. Console hardware is ancient. In fact current console hardware was way behind gaming PCs even when they were launched, years ago. My Android tablet has more power than an XBox or PS3 now. The real world PC graphics are way more impressive than the 320p that consoles can manage, with their low res textures and low frame rates. For reference, I can play games with everything maxed, at 6014x1200, at 60fps, even with the latest games (DmC, FC3, DS3).
Along with much more powerful graphics, PC's have more power for the AI, particle and physics engines, a fraction of the loading times (in fact, with SSDs, practically non-existant loading times), better sound (more channels and effects), free online play, free custom mods available, and weekly sales on Steam so recent games are available much cheaper than a console title (cheaper even than 2nd hand console titles)
Over a consoles lifespan, the owner will actually spend MORE than a PC gamer buying the same games, and the PC player will have more options, and can always upgrade piece by piece. Obviously the PC can also be used for a lot of other things besides games. A console has been described as a tax on the stupid. They always have been.
You can actually spend around £200 quid now for a bottom end PC that will still give you a much better gaming experience than a console in terms of graphics quality and loading times. Games companies love consoles because they can make more money out of them.

Last point, wrongo. For about that much, you could get something with an i3 processor and 4gb of RAM. Trust me, I know because I damn well did. And guess what? I have lag issues while running Skyrim even on all low settings, which definitely does not look as good as it does on my PS3, which I might add runs it without lag. You want a PC that can run anything well on medium to high graphics settings, you'd be looking more (to go N.A.) $500-$650 as a low end. I'd rather spend $300 on a PS3 and not have any issues whatsoever than $650 on a computer which I'd need to fiddle with and as you say constantly update, add new hardware, upgrade, etc.

Too bad most games are console ports thus limiting the graphics on a PC, except for a few that get dedicated resources for a pc title.

Just for the record I own a gaming PC and no consoles at all, but i find your attitude disgusting.
