Re: What are you most looking forward to?

Checking out all the new menus and stuff, then the new control scheme and then messing around to see if the good old glitches still work. Don't know why I am so anxious to get to those but I looked forward to the point when I can try them out again, ever since I knew about them and the mere thought ...

Re: Bad Ending for taking too long?

Considering how you had until spring in Shenmue and until summer in Shenmue II the most logical answer would be that we have until fall in III.

Re: No Time Skip In Shenmue I

I personaly think it won't hurt to have the option of having the option. Make it like the Area Jump, with a choice in the settings if you want it or never want to see it and make it disabled by default (again just like Area Jump).
Everyone happy.

Re: Shenmue HD - Are the cutscenes in 4:3 (Non-Widescreen)?!

Has anyone tried to make a list of scenes in Shenmue where something doesn't work right in widescreen? I have seen the game played like this a couple of times and I can't remember anything at all. So it can't be that much or at least nothing really bad. I have to say, when the "mugged guy not r...

Re: Famitsu Article

People didn't believe me earlier when I said that round objects like the watch are meant to be round and are only round when the image fills the 4:3 format. Thanks for pointing this out in images, I think that makes the message a lot more clear.

Re: Famitsu Article

These screenshots are resized in ways we don't know so they aren't anything to be judged very well. And also to make this clear once and for all: The Dreamcast outputs a resolution of 720x480 with a 640 pixel display area. Many digital devices take this as 640 overall and make the image too narrow. ...

Re: Shenmue HD in Discussions Before Shenmue III Announcemen

There were discussions before? Well duh, they pretty much have been in various forms for like the last 10 years. They have acknowledged the demand for Shenmue HD for quite a long time, leading to some very unfortunately statements and almost teasing as we all know. The fact that they were actively p...

Re: Shenmue HD announced for PS4 / XBOX ONE / PC

Shenmue always had a very sharp look to it and that's part of its identity so I wouldn't overdo it with filtering. Of course these things are always an option and the Xbox version already had some, even though they were only about the color and pretty much worthless. A bit more anti aliasing and may...

Re: Will the audio be improved in the HD version?

Pretty much any music track that is in the Shenmue games exists in some form of prerecorded demo. They did this to easily establish how the music sounds and then converted it over to the Dreamcast's sound system. And by the way I doubt it would ever get close to run out of space for instruments, it ...

Re: Concerns about Shenmue HD.

And as Kiske pointed out in the Famitsu thread there's this oddity from the trailer: https://i.imgur.com/RbgZ8yx.jpg It doesn't feel like we've gotten to the bottom of the hows and whys yet. Yeah that's what lets me keep my cool. Mentioned that situation myself earlier. Everyone should really just ...

Re: Concerns about Shenmue HD.

Well this doesn't exactly sound good but without proper context this is delicate to deal with so I'll definately wait. 70% completion sound pretty far but most of it is porting the code and redesigning the HUD, wich aparently have been done. All the rest is optimization so the proper adjustment of t...

Re: Will the audio be improved in the HD version?

Yes, and also, there are prerecorded versions of many of the sample based pieces, perhaps all of them. These versions usually sound alot better. I guess hardware constraint (memory, space) was also the reason why sample based music was used. The music you hear in the game usually try to emulate the...

Re: Will the audio be improved in the HD version?

Some of the music also took a bit of a hit. Namely the opening of Shenmue and the rooftop cutscene after Dou Niu's defeat in Shenmue II. Unlike the majority of the music, with is sample based and generated on the fly these are prerecorded. But there is no big problem with them, just a bit scratchy a...

Re: Shenmue HD - Are the cutscenes in 4:3 (Non-Widescreen)?!

I don't think it's a conscious decision to keep the original aspect ratio just to keep it well... original. Since games aren't like film you can just make more stuff visible on the sides to fill widescreen instead of cropping and losing someting from the top and bottom. And that's the key here, noth...
