Crytek has requested the removal of a Crysis Remastered photo mode mod that was hosted by its developer behind a Patreon paywall. Numerous modding projects for Crysis Remastered exist without issue, but Crytek has said it stepped in here due to the project being monetised. Frans Bouma, creator of the mod, last night protested on Twitter that he had received a takedown notice from Crytek PR manager Adam Grinsell. This note, screenshotted below, includes a formal request to remove the mod from Bouma's Patreon page, with seven days to comply before it is passed to the company's legal department. It also states Crytek's stance on modding from a strict legal point of view - that its EULA does not allow it (even if, like many developers, this has been left unenforced unless specific issues arose). Crytek apparently doesn't want thousands of people posting screenshots of their game on social media and other sites. FTR I don't distribute any game asset; my camera tools only … [Read more...] about Crytek requests removal of Crysis Remastered photo mode mod hosted on Patreon

The creator of a popular series of photo mods has pulled down their tools for Crysis 2 and 3 Remastered after a take-down notice from Crytek. Modder Frans Bouma has created a range of tools that add or expand photo mode options for games, including the tools used to give Final Fantasy 7 Remake the classic camera angles from the 1997 original . Bouma distributes the tools to others via a Patreon subscription page , though they're careful to note that the code for the mod tools they create is entirely original, with no original game assets included. Crytek apparently doesn't want thousands of people posting screenshots of their game on social media and other sites. FTR I don't distribute any game asset; my camera tools only contain binaries compiled from my own code and not linked to any game asset. pic.twitter.com/b2Pakbe9ze January 13, 2022 See more According to Bouma's public Patreon post explaining their side of the incident, a Crytek representative … [Read more...] about Crysis 2 and 3 Remastered photo mods get a takedown from Crytek
The Nvidia CES 2022 Special Address saw a whole host of new gaming hardware and software announced at the presentation, with the most noteworthy additions being the additions to the RTX 30 series family in both standalone video cards and mobile form factors. A new line of gaming monitors was also unveiled, but with no concrete price point or release date at the time of writing. After months of being heavily rumored, the RTX 3090 Ti was briefly confirmed at Nvidia CES 2022 Special Address. No release date or price point has been confirmed yet for this model. The RTX 3050 desktop GPU was unveiled with a price point and release date. It's looking as though budget PC gamers are in luck, as the RTX 3050 carries a retail price of just $249 making it $80 cheaper than the RTX 3060. What's more, it's launching on January 27, mere weeks away. If you've been after current-gen RTX performance at affordable prices, this is looking like the one to watch.

The Nvidia RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT matchup is going to be hot stuff in 2022. And this was highlighted and confirmed recently when CES 2022 became a battleground for entry-level video cards looking to fight their way for market dominance on both sides. AMD announced the RX 6500 XT on January 4 and Nvidia wasn't far behind with its unveiling of the RTX 3050 later that morning. Both the RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6500 XT have the same goal in mind: to replace the perennially popular GTX 1650 and RX 570 models (among other video cards) that many PC gamers are still using in 2022. These GPUs are targeting 1080p (Full HD) at high settings in the latest releases, such as Resident Evil Village, Back 4 Blood, and Call of Duty: Vanguard as well as esports competitive titles (CS: GO, Valorent, etc.) at higher FPS. There are many factors to consider when deciding where to sit in the RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT match, and it comes down to more than numbers. We're comparing more … [Read more...] about RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT: which budget GPU is right for you?
RTX 3050 pre-orders are going to be in high demand as this anticipated GPU is due to hit shelves sooner than expected. While it was rumored for several months, the RTX 3050 desktop graphics card was announced yesterday during the Nvidia CES 2022 Special Address. It is built with the goal of replacing the likes of the GTX 1050 and GTX 1650, two of the most used budget video cards right now. The RTX 3050 offers high performance at an affordable price point. It was previously only available in mobile forms, found in RTX 3050 laptops , but now will be available as a full dedicated GPU for gaming PCs. We'll be the first to admit that the RTX 3050 is unlikely to go down as one of the best graphics cards , at least when stacked up against other RTX 30 series video cards like the RTX 3070. However, given the low barrier of entry and power potential on display, we're confident in saying that this GPU has the makings to be one of the most popular graphics cards of all time. RTX 3050 … [Read more...] about RTX 3050: pre-orders, price, specs, release date, and everything else you need to know
