Wednesday film: Understanding graphic settings in a game

22 Jul

World of Tanks is a hugely successful massively multiplayer online game. I rarely see it mentioned in the gaming media, but since my husband is an avid player, I hear about it all the time. He sent me a link to the video below.

Even if World of Tanks isn’t your jam, this 15 minute “Developer Diaries: Graphic Settings” piece is worth watching. Though it focuses on the graphics options in WoT, it gives a good explanation of various terms, shows how settings change FPS (frames per second), and clarifies why perceived problems are not always the graphic card’s fault. The video is professionally produced and clearly demonstrates the result of changing slider settings.

I think this video makes it easier to understand settings in other games or virtual worlds, too. Besides that, it’s just nifty to watch, and I give it bonus points for the quick glimpses inside the developer offices, with both men and women busy working on the game.
