hope parts of the HUD are optional. Way too cluttered. Wish devs didn't think they have to draw goggles on the edge of the screen to show you are wearing them. It pushes everything into the middle and screws with the FOV.

The graphics are nice but looks like it is still moving away from the OG we loved. Health bar! I just hope GRIN wants to win us over, no disrespect to Redstorm.

It sure looks shiny and pretty, the lighting and all, but there has to be alot more to it than just graphics, the hud and all urban maps is kinda turning me off.
Great engine and technology, wrong gameplay and theme http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I don't think they're PC screens. It wasn't specified anywhere, and the HUD and graphics look pretty much like what we've seen on the E3 demo for Xbox 360.
None of them are showing the OTS view, though, so who knows...

EDIT: Nevermind, just saw that this has been posted on the Grin website. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
So, if they're really PC screens, it seems like this is not exactly what we were expecting, but oh well.

The Hud it is done from the common "design"
I would imagine the pc verson will not look like this at all.

Although the actual Quality will remain and surpass the shots you are looking at.

I would say by looking at the design for the moment Grin.Inc will be keeping it consistent with the 360 version. For the present time

And at a later date do some refinments in keeping with PC GAMING COMMUNITY

The screens suggest a great similarity to the 360 - single character, Mitchell; 3 man squad; 2 ROEs, smaller,more refined ret,health bar, too big compass, game includes the SCAR rifle. The things left to refine for pc are limited to the mission design, although that is a big factor.

Does the SCAR magazine hold 60 rounds, 1 screen shows what looks like 53 rounds.

Still don't like those goggles, be nice to toggle that and a lot of the other off.

I would assume some of the information was incorrect or not completed and this was pointed out to them.

I expect this is why its been removed.

Even the best advertisers get it wrong some times just a genuine mistake.

I expect the next bit of info we get will be more specific and leave us in no doubt what we are looking at.

It does say on the site

"Since all information from us has to go through our current publisher, we have decided not to have a forum on this site. However, we are genuinely interested in the community and will monitor the discussions on the official forums.

For our current project, we refer to the official forums, keep the constructive threads going! "

Its also importent not to lose our heads over a few screen shots its only a couple of seconds worth, in a game that takes hundreds of hours to develope.

A few screen shots is not the whole game and it does not represent the whole game.

When we do get the screen shots it would be respectfull to mention the possitive side to them and not rip them to bits in the first sentence.

Remember the game is still 4 and a half months from completion they still and probably would make changes if we are constructive, with any feed back, they get from us.

Colin

If the game was only 4/5 months away from completion they would have something solid to show and advertising would have started some time ago, most aspects of the game would be already put together and the media would be all over it, how ubi is acting it seems the game is 1/2 years away from being finished, i think people expecting to play the game this year will be very disapointed unless they release a short, early alpha/beta http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif.

Release Date November/December 2005.
Public information is governed by UBI on a strict timetable which they stick to.

This Title is a very important land mark in gaming technology both Hardware and software it will break a lot of new ground in both areas.
This game on all platforms will be very different from what we are used to.

The game will be unique.
The build up to release will be unique.

We just need a bit of faith in the Developer`s
and some patience.

Advertising and hype sells games (BF2?,HL2?,D3?), if they had something worth showing there should be alot of information, footage and interviews over this product (PC), they would have started telling the world how great their new game will be (like they already did with the 360 version) a long time ago, especialy if they intend to meet this doubtfull release date, thats how it works, you start selling the steaks while the cow is still on the grass fields http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif.
It all seems to fast to be true and there is no reason to believe they will meet this release date unless the game is faulty, lacking, and filled with bugs, it doesnt make any sence from any perspective http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif.

everything reflects light in those screens, I think they went over board with the lighting there. Also I have not seen any versions of hte M8 that look like that even though it is supposed to be an M-8

That's not a XM8, that's a SCAR. Why is it supposed to be a XM8?

I agree on the lighting, it looks weird, but I'll wait for further media before I get to any conclusion.

Many of you old R6/RS players should recall the heartbeat monitors in the player/team status portion of HUD. There were 3 little boxes (or less depending on how many memebers on the squad) and one could, at a glance, see the health status of all the team along with their heartbeats. Now this didn't take up any of the FOV of the player just as GR didn't either with the soldiers on the soldier tab on the command map.

GR3's HUD is way to cluttered honestly. The "goggles" outline is part of it along with team health meters as with the players. GR had the changing color/stance bar in the player box and took up less screen real estate along with the weapons box.

I like the idea of the compass instead of the TD, but I think a tape design at the top with a carat indicating heading would be better and get the compass out of the way. I could also do without the little camera view in the upper left hand corner, could block an air threat or someone on an upper floor of a building.

While textures still need some work, the characters and objects on the map look pretty good. I am also with Cob on the weapon view, I hope it can be turned off.
