Mafia 3's PC port is apparently... dogshit. Darn lazy porters....

52 posts in this topic

 

 

I unfortunately, or maybe fortunately in this case? Haven't played Mafia 3 on my PC yet. But out of curiosity's sake, what are the issues that you have experienced for those of you that has played this game on PC? Is it worse than Batman Arkham Knight's disastrous launch?

I've heard the UI isn't scaled above 1080p which is a massive problem for a 4K user like me, but it seems like this and most of the other issues I've been hearing about can usually be patched pretty quickly.  The best thing to do for now (if you haven't bought it yet) is to sit on it for a few days.

Another game shat upon by lazy port jobs. I predict 60-70% Steam rating.

That and 30 FPS.

 

:fail:

The game currently suffers from.....

  • Blurry textures and screen, possibly from either texture upscaling (that's running the textures on a lower resolution and scaling it up to your native) or FXAA which is impossible to turn off.
  • Reports of crashes.
  • Reports of game showing blank button prompts when using controllers.
  • UI does not scale properly on anything other than 1920x1080.
  • Reports of graphical glitches and the weather instantly changing once every 10 seconds.
  • Clunky M+KB controls.

 

Meanwhile, The Coalition released one of the best ports this year in the name of Gears 4. What?

Why must the PC suffer from shitty ports time and time again? Why not just develop it on PC and port it to consoles?

Been saying that for years actually. The answer I get is because it's easier to make something on consoles first because of the standardized hardware. I actually would've thought that starting with the harder one first makes more sense.

That's good to hear at least.

It is. I'm actually pretty interested in Gears 4, and glad to hear Coalition creating a great port. Like I said, if devs make a great port, people will buy.

Speaking of Gears 4

Unfortunate, writing and acting seems good, gameplay seems a lot better than the previous game with the usual tedium of open world titles, I'll probably end up getting it eventually. Seemed like a really bad idea to release it like that when you don't only hurt your reputation and reviews before but now people can just refund it, don't see why they didn't just wait a few days. Hopefully they get that patch out this weekend to improve things.

Ah, Gears of War 4. Good that the port is great! I am expecting the same gameplay as 3. I don't really like Gears that much so I'll have to wait till the price drops.

That shit's early access levels of bad. Fucking FALLOUT 4 is cleaner than this shit.

Shit looks like it's the PS4 version for me soon.

 

I'd never thought I'd say this, but thank god Gears 4 didn't suck.

No worries, our PC Master Race still has modders to fix shit like this.

 

Honestly with everybody complaining about Sony not allowing mods for their console I have to say I agree with them if it means they don't get shitty ports like we do. Mods are probably the reason most developers release broken, buggy pieces of shit on PC anyways because they know people far more talented than them will fix it even though they're getting paid far less (if at all, thanks steam) to do so.

 

But at least I can take solace in knowing that I'll never be able to mod a Playstation, thanks Sony!

Good news everyone, Hangar 13 has confirmed that the patch should be released tonight.

So for ET people, that's 6PM.

 

Bad news: They'll going to need more than one single patch.

Modders shouldn't be the ones to fix games. Also, most of them can't be fixed without proper mod support or tools to actually mod the game. You can make some MINOR improvements, but nothing too much. It's the developers who must make "fixed" games, not modders.

 

Mods can't be the reason developers release broken games because most of these games coming out can't even be properly modded in the first place because they lack proper mod support. Developers release broken games because they are lazy and it's got nothing to do with mods. They are just bad PC ports, that's all.

I see sarcasm doesn't translate well into text, but yes that's exactly what I'm suggesting. Developers are getting lazier and expect more from the community than we expect of the developers, it's just a fact.

 

It's just like how early access games are just another form of beta testing (or in some cases alpha testing) that rather than being presented to us for free we're expected to buy into even though it's unfinished, and that's a lot to ask from a community that's already dropping 60$ for finished (or mostly finished) games.

 

It's for reasons like these that games like Ride to Hell or Slaughtering Grounds can exist, because they're being developed with the intention of making bank first and developing it later, and that's if they even get around to doing it.

 

TL;DR - I agree, it sucks.

Ye, sarcasm is hard to understand when written. At least more subtle sarcasm lol

k patch is out, unfortunately all the patch did was unlocked the framerate.

Early reports on Neogaf and Steam has confirmed that players are having a seriously hard time running the game on 60fps on max settings with serious hardware. This includes 970s, 980s, 1080s, RAMS reaching up to 16GB and Intel i7s.

UI Scaling is still broken, along with serious game breaking bugs.

Unfortunately, this game will need more than one patch to be considered acceptable.
