erandur writes: right... not impressive tbh.. the flames of a torches move, but the shadows don't... let's hope they don't forget to adjust that ;), and the game is almost in beta and the gfx barely changed yet, don't expect big differences in the final release Sat Sep 08 2007 8:10AM Report

kevmachine writes: Not bad, pretty good lighting so far. Honestly I was expecting mabey a bit more, but it's a start. Sat Sep 08 2007 10:58AM Report
maddbomber83 writes: No HDR yet. Hope they get that into game to help beaf up that lighting. Dynamic shadows for torches would be a smooth touch as well. Sat Sep 08 2007 12:45PM Report
Archin writes: This is looking great, as you can see the orcs arnt receiving anything but static lighting atm, dynamic lighting hasnt been added yet (in that footage anyway) but when PC's take on dynamic lighting (as in the login screen movie) its gona look so sweet! Sat Sep 08 2007 2:29PM Report

Cylob writes: nothing revolutionary here: EQ2 still looks better and is 3 years old now, same goes for LotR: looks way better... not final yet, so things might change. Sat Sep 08 2007 4:08PM Report
Lightleaf writes: erandur, you should read over your comment. "the game is almost in -BETA-..." It's not released and beta stage doesn't really mean anything, it just means they are allowing more useless, unhelpful critics like yourself into the game instead of dedicated testers who feedback on everything.

Zaktharan writes: Hmm... Looks nice. I can't understand you, lads. What arr ya waiting fer in MMORPG? Cutest graphical effects? Go and see it in single-player modern RPG's. I just want to play in WAR and walk Altdorf freely. See ya there, lads.=) Sat Sep 08 2007 5:31PM Report
Fion writes: Hmm yes impressive. Light maps.. a technology in games since Quake. Hardly new to MMOGs even, though it is used nicely in some places it basically just comes down to a 'glow' with fire. I'm not impressed in the least. And why do all these videos say 'pre-alpha footage' when they are brand new, (this was from Leipzig GC 2007,) and beta has been going on for months now. Work in progress, of course. But it's hardly pre-alpha. Sat Sep 08 2007 10:20PM Report
Fion writes: I should have trusted my gut when I saw that 'login screen' video. Everything about it screamed 'prerender' to me. With this lighting system being little more then lightmaps, and fully static, then yea, that video was a full blown prerender. I should have known. Sat Sep 08 2007 10:22PM Report

jabbuk writes: It says on the video pre-alpha. What you expect? Graphics look good for a pre-alpha to me. And even polished game graphics never look as good in a video or even in alot of SS's. Sun Sep 09 2007 10:41AM Report
Fion writes: But it's not pre-alpha, it's brand spanking new, as in released just 2 weeks ago. They 'just' began to show their lighting engine and this was the first video released with it. When a game is in beta, anything new is also beta. They are just covering their asses Sun Sep 09 2007 6:18PM Report
