It's NEXTs that are giant based on the AC4 trailer pitting Noblesse Oblige against gen3s, V and gen3s should be the same size more or less, but V ACs have insane AP numbers (assuming a standard unit of measurement), far more mobility, and way higher damage output.

>>17152830
No. Old gen is just bad, 4th gen is too easy, 5th gen has decent mechanics but terrible part balancing. Souls builds are pretty ACish already, and melee combat is almost always more fun than shooting, just give me a customizable power armor suit and go from there. The Surge was a neat concept but the lack of weapon/armor variety and dogshit art style kind of spoiled it.

So I played a bunch of armored core growing up, but I never payed attention to the story at all since it was mostly text outside of a few cutscenes.

The first mission was nightmarishly hard with only instrumentation to guide me but some how I managed to do it.

I'm a bit shocked by how fun it was to try and do the mission "blindfolded".

The only thing I can say that's needed more is some estimated collision markers on radar and a pitch ladder.

>>17140301
Because being brutally honest, the lore itself is shoddy
Armored Core 3 is great and all and has the most lived-in world from any armored core I've played but somehow we're supposed to believe that vast oceans, giant dams and wide open spaces of literal dirt populate this underground geostructure and that they have perceptible skies in them. It just says to me that they didn't really think this through.


If it matters at all, I kinda liked Crest in that game because they didn't backstab me like Mirage did.

some of Mirage's offerings actually fit into my playstyle. They had a very balanced and relatively light generator that was kind of like a superior version of that Jap generator (Kisaragi?) I had bought previously. It basically did the same shit that their generator did, except slightly better in almost all respects and it had a lower calorific value to boot. I think I ended up using that machinegun too.

Are there any categories that Kisaragi wasn't BTFO at? Besides that FCS they had that basically did everything I needed

All of the AC 3 timeline is quite possibly my favorite story of all time, especially Last Raven. So many amazing concepts like Dominants, Pulverizers, The 24 Hour War, The Silent Line, Layered, and unmanned suicide weapons. AC in general has great world building and really encourages the player to fill in the gaps.

I'm going to spend the next few days seeing what I can do. I don't have access to a modified 360 but I do know that I could just make a free account, open up the harddrive and copy the files out. The issue then is I wouldn't know where to put them in the emulator, which is something I'll have to chat with the Xenia devs about.

Its not a complete package (no multiplayer, default reg sets, etc), but this is at least a start. Local multiplayer is coming soonish. Any game which works on a peer to peer basis (RIP 5gliders) should in theory work should be coming some time mid 2020.

Are you supposed to import your AC4 mech to FA or do you have to start again from scratch?
I can't seems to be able to import, on PS3. Do I have to finish AC4 first?
>>
>>17163044
No: The implication is unlike the 3 series, you're not the same person between games in 4 so it wouldn't make any sense.

You from 4 in FA is White Glint/The "second" Joshua O'brien, but you do not play *as* White Glint.

>>17162052
Head tracking is fucking retarded. You know the fucking monitor isn't going to move with your head, right?
>>
>>17163077
I was of the same mind until I tried someone elses' headtracking rig.

See, you keep your eyes on the middle, you can turn the head of a character and offset the camera from its "centre". Generally you don't do this at 1:1 but a ratio of about 3:1. Translation can also let you peek around corners.

https://youtu.be/9wXx3vMy_AQ?t=374

The offset when properly calibrated also creates a very convincing illusion of depth, like the screen goes on beyond what you're looking at.

This is what that typically looks like in first person: https://youtu.be/Jd3-eiid-Uw?t=164

You should be planning out your loadout based on where you think you will be in a mission as time drags on. If you think you can last a whole mission using that really powerful Rayleonard rifle that only has 180 shots, go ahead, but I would pack a handgun in reserve and take other weapons that aren't as quick to run out of ammo, like a back missile launcher, a machinegun or a laser blade.

One tactic I like to use is to pack the Kiku pile bunker in the left arm, backed up by a mini laser blade in the left hanger. I go up to the arms forts, touch them once with the Kiku to destroy them in one shot, then jettison the Kiku so I have a laser blade to fight the ground troops.

Don't be afraid to completely rethink your entire weapons layout too if a level is giving you trouble. For the Algebra arms fort, I brought a back mounted chaingun and an assault rifle, along with the KIKU. I used the Kiku to one-shot the arms fort, but then I quickly ran out of ammo for my other weapons fighting the drones that came out. So I swapped the right hand for a large capacity machinegun and switched the chaingun to AS Missiles which don't need locks to home in on targets, which is really useful when you have a shitton of those drones swarming every which way.

Something about the game becomes weirdly special when you remove the concern for boosters and the gamespeed becomes enormous and frantic. In a way, it becomes what feels like a very different and potentially an entirely new kind of game. It has a lot of rough edges but this "new kind of game" is still incredibly fun in the right situations because it becomes more about your accuracy with your inputs and actions and less about the primary types of drawback about your build. A lot of people I've spoken to who also participate in the FGC said it made ACFA feel "very much like a fighting game" through its movement system during 1.15.

Transform. The front belly armour rises up a bit like a VF, the smaller hands duck underneath, the big backpack with the main arms folds away and a set of fins built into the back legs extend.

The big back arms are a swappable part, the plates on the head (including the extended back plate) are, a bunch of panelling and optional stuff that will go ontop of the torso and some leg armour will all be customizable but the trick is making sure these fairly crazy requirements all get met in her design. Beyond that, its character customization sliders, internal parts, weapon hardpoints, etc.

Wanted something a little different to stand out from the crowd. ZOE meets AC. Need to hide some of the smoother lines under armoured segments tho.

Not like, super huge either. The model/rigging is taking a long time because not only do I have to make sure the rig works but I have to make sure it doesn't deform and injure a pilot (which in turn I hope to pose and rig later for embarking/disembarking parts).

Once the weird rig and weighting requirements and topology issues are solved I can move onto actually doing a detailed version.

If this is about the singleplayer campaign, literally everything is viable. KE Rifles and Battle Rifles will serve you well for most of the campaign even if they're boring choices. Sniper cannons can be handy for achieving special conditions in some of the missions and you can use Ultimate Weapons or pile bunkers for S-ranking the AC fights. The Mega Laser Blade for example is easy to hit with and you can use it to take down most paired ACs.

I'm loving Silent Line, great game.
>>
>>17181963
Ah, this one happened to me quite a few times. Must be something do with the emulator and the position of the enemy. Scarily enough, it could even hang at the final blue pulverizer or even just after you beat the hover leg. As far as I've heard, no fixes for this issue.

Just savestate before the fight. Also I'd recommend using anything medium to light with GAEA core. It must also have a max speed of 415 full weight. This way you can easily outdodge and outlast her while letting the core do the hard work.
>>
>>17188906
It could also happen to Zinaida herself. But she can get herself out of it because of unlimited energy. To get her out of the floor simply keep boosting to the ceiling and back down. She'll clip through the floor eventually and you can keep fighting.

This is similar to ult. Pulverizer as well. Except if he does end up outside, the game will hang.

Kasumi is great. She can see the good sides of both paths, but her disgust at Strayed choosing to destroy the world is felt very clearly. Not just any operator would go back to being a Lynx, even knowing she would most likely lose, after having seen Strayed, but her moral code demands that she at least tries to stop you.

>>17200846
Kinda like a sim or something, with the same sort of weight and variability of movement and action?
>>
>>17202252
I guess you could boil it down to more options. If you think about movement you essentially spend most of your time boosting (flying) and quickboosting. I suppose you could walk, but
>walking
Obviously in the openings you have cores moving pretty freely. They can turn very smoothly, often aim their arms independently of one another, and generally do things that are more indicative of the capabilities of a humanoid robot rather than a hyper-advanced jet or tank. Now, don't get me wrong, I love AC as it is, but I think there's more to explore in the future.

They don't, they consume both but do way more damage as a result.

The Unmanned Suicide weapon storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with the Parry blade. Not only am I excessively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Internecine and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of continent, you little Irregular. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue.

Wait, so in armor she's a biped but after purging she's a quad? Do you plan on walking animations for each?
>>
>>17221144
She can be a quad too in armour, just depends on the armour set and yes its pretty easy, the animations for walking are all keyframe driven with in engine interpolations to reduce the workload and some procedural stuff to make sure the footfalls are accurate.

In theory, the extra joint in her legs mean she can even act as a reverse joint with just a software change.

The brief for the legs was "design an omnileg".

You could come up with a bunch of different SCIENCE explanations for why energy weapons have "ammo".

>weapons have massive energy draw and have huge battery/capacitors inside that can only hold so many shots
>energy from your AC supplements it when you fire, but the AC cant possibly power the gun all on its own
>ammo count is just the computer calculating how many shots you can get out of the battery
>gun has to be recharged back at base from a much bigger power source

>energy weapons use disposable cartridges of things like batteries/capictors/laser lenses that burn out after a single use and pops new ones into place like a magazine on a gun to fire the next shot
