  1. The problem are the drivers for the Mali GPU. They are buggy and do not support all features needed for the game. There is not much DF can do. New drivers have to come from the device and/or GPU manufacturer and these have be included in an Android update...
  2. Psychonauts - Meat Circus (cover)

    Very cool.
  3. The Dig - Intro remake

    Not sure if it belongs in here but I just stumbled over this one: Looks pretty amazing.
  4. If you can freely choose between subtitle lanuage and voiceover language it shouldn't be a problem. Then everybody can pick what he or she prefers.
  5. Great news I just hope they going to fix some of the translation errors the german version has. We never really got any feedback to the issues people posted.
  6. Well, it's a remaster not a remake.... If you think in movie terms, then I would not expect huge improvements or new content... Running on modern hardware, improved resolution, remastered audio, maybe adjusted controls... not nothing really beyond that.
  7. Well, if you think GF was a movie, then a remastered movie is not a new movie with new actors, new scenes. More like remixed sound, new scan for higher resolution etc. What I expect is GF running on more modern hardware, remastered sound, improved controlls (controller support, mouse), higher resolution, maybe improved textures and models. Guess it depends on the budget they got and if they have access to all of the original source code and assets and what their deadline is.
  8. I think it's more like this: Disney has the IP. Sony funds the port to their systems. Because they pay for the development, their platforms will see the first releases. Maybe later other platforms will follow. DF was chosen as developer because Tim and others of DF worked on this IP and made a good proposal how the new version should look like. But Sony/Disney could have choosen another developer. It's not up to DF to decide which platforms will be released. It's Disney/Sony because they have the IP and fund the development.
  9. Do you think the foreign voice overs were in 44Khz too? I suppose so. Yes.
  10. Well, if the original recording exists, I bet there would be a way to enhance them. Still, I would even take them in it's original quality, I just want to have them back. The original recordings were done in 44khz and LucasArts got them. If they still have them on a backup, that's the real question.
  11. It depends on the contract they made. Some of the localized versions were done by the distributer. They payed for the rights to sell the game in their territory and also payed for the localization. It's not like game companies always payed a localization company to do the other voices and translations. DF/Disney has to sort this out, but would be a shame if they could not use the dubbed versions.
  12. It has nothing to do with not liking. In fact many germans prefer to have an "original" version, because some dubbed version of games or movies are bad, or they fear they miss some jokes, etc. But not everybody is fluent in english. Also it's not really fun to play a game with a dictionary next to you when you have look up every second word.
  13. When will there be german voices released?

    That was also the case of the old LucasArts adventures. At least the voice production and translations were done in Germany. Maybe DF will do other voices as well... but I guess that depends on how sucessfull BA will be to cover the costs.

    I'm not really sure if they will do voices in other languages than english. VO work is expensive. From a production point of view it also cheaper to do the other languages when the game is completed. So if they are going to do it I wouldn't expect it before act 2 is released. And they should fix the subtitles first. Some of the translations are not very good or even wrong.
