AC3 Armored Cores vs Verdict Day Armored CoresWhich are more powerful?
>>17147996VD no contest
Are oldgen artbooks forever lost to time?
>>17149874They're half the size and their weapons are puny. They're practically MTs that learned to wallkick.

>>17151547It'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.
Bros is the Last Raven ISO dead? I can't find it anywhere.
>>17151665What the fuck I thought it wasWAKE UPDo you feel the cold
>when you're torn between playing LR on a Ps2 emulator due to better performance, or LRP because of the extra content
>>17152111>Ps2 emulator due to better performancewhat? please explain your secret. the psp version looks better and runs better. the ps2 one requires me to run it with software rendering because the hardware rendering doesn't work. any specific plugins?
>>17139673I'm about to replay one of the Armored Cores, which one should it be? I have a hard time deciding which is most kino
>>17152319Project Phantasma is pretty kino and I've heard LR is fantastic. I'm about to start Nexus for the first time
>>17151676That's a big boy
>>17152111If you decide to emulate LRP make sure you get the workaround cheat because the PSP games all freeze up on certain missions.
Is it disgusting that I want an Armored Souls game more than another AC game?
>>17152830No. 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.

Kick in a day.You can make someone feel better.To resist, trust is in the air.Let it take a long break.ALLLLLLLLLLL MY FEARRRRRRRALLLLLLLLLLL MY FEARRRRRRRI came down from somewhere else.Still like that kick in the dust Is it fun where? I think so.LET IT GO ROUND THE COSMOS OVER THE PAINLET IT GO ROUND THE COSMOS OVER THE PAIN
>>17151816wat? You never see Noblesse Oblige beside another AC properly in that trailer, and the other ACs are the same height relative to the scenery.
What's a good control scheme for Nexus so I can have dual analogs but the same layout as the older ones?
>>17145322either build a lobster or be cheapI forget the exact setup I used on the psp version but I did it after losing like 20 timesshe always flies above the ravenbuild something that can use the back rockets to take out the objective quickly, drop them and then fly to the ceiling and kill her with a punch blade and energy refillthink I only had to land 2-3 hits with it on her
>>17146061You didn't break away from shit. You died in the process of breaking away and were resurrected by superior engineers from a superior company (Akvavit) as a pawn of the Union. Even now, old Akvavit shit is better than new Torus shit.GAE is the Jeb Bush of corporations.

>bought AC4&FA used a few weeks ago>only realize now that they run perfectly on XeniaIt was just 20$ but fuck, that's 20$ I'd rather give to From directly
>>17139673https://twitter.com/nando_knight7/status/1085173914731331585thought on this not-ACFA?
>>17158592At least, this might have a pc release.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCibBLp_kOAGo to 1:40.
>>17158542Jesus christ what the fuck is going on with the rendering there, I don't remember 4th gen ever looking like that in motion.
>>17158753What's your problem? The bloom outta the ass or the pitiful draw distance? Or maybe the dumb as fuck noise filter or the unstable framerate?This is still my fav AC so far
>>17158792It looks like one of those games made back when render fog was in fashion, but with the render fog disabled by someone who didn't understand the purpose render fog served!WHILE A SUN EXPLODES ON THE HORIZON!
>>17158542Where did you get the rom?
>>17158592>>17158734You can find the demo and the alpha version here, but you'll need a pixiv account to download https://surumekoubou.booth.pm/items/1175114There isn't much to it at the moment; 3 wave based missions and some arena battles on 2 maps. I hope it gets more content eventually, it plays rather nice
>>17139673So 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. So let me ask are the stories worth paying attention to at all when I revisit them, or can I just do what I always did and ignore it? And if there are some good stories which games had the best ones?
>>17159316Like a number of From Software's games, the story of Armored Core is largely filled in by the player's imagination.
>>17159316If you think AC's story sucks, you have no imagination
>>17156959>GAE is the Jeb Bush of corporations.Ouch.
>>17159605Found the password but the download does literally nothing. I own physical copies but I don't have a disk drive on my rig because y'know, its 2019 so I can't rip my own stupid disks.
>>17159316I recently played AC4 and 4A and gotta say their stories are neatI can't say much of the older ones, though
>>17159605Update: Works in Edge.
>>17158542I have no 3D running and the cutscenes are scrambled. Is this because of a bad ISO (I'm running the one from that link) or something else?Ryzen 7 1700X, 32GB RAM, GTX 1060
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.
>>17160175>this madman is actually so desperate for PC 4th gen he's playing with no optical sensors I'm not sure whether to be impressed or saddened.
>>17140301Because being brutally honest, the lore itself is shoddyArmored 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.
>>17160181Making matters worse, I'm building a 4th gen clone in UE4.
>>17160185It's literally like a Shihei manga
>>17160185Mirage's only saving grace is the 1000-eouns machinegun. Eats money but everything dies to it before it runs out of ammo.
I can't save schematics therefor I can't edit the NEXT either.This is fucking dark souls tier.
Just did mission 2: Red eyes.Yeah no, this is still easier than Last Raven.
>>17160190some 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
Emill, get your shit together I understand you wanted to be an equal opportunist but come the fuck on. I am literally blind.
Fuck it, let's do this.
Starting a new run, blind.Who do I run with? you guys pick
>>17160207Blowing themselves up with giant spiders? >please unclog sewers no plumbers available so we call you hahaThe sad thing is I believed them,
>>17160231>anything other than Aaliyah for anything 4th gen
>>17160231The answer is always Aaliyah
>>17160235>>17160236What was I thinking, considering the options for a potential run through the entire game blind with zero customization how silly of me
How it felt:
Oh wrong pic sorry meant this one but the other one is also relevant
>>17160232What theWhich mission was that?!
>>17160301I forget, but it's in AC3.
>>17158592Damn that looks nice. Hope they add PvP soon.
>>17160186Show your work anon
>>17159316All 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.
>>17160982>The 24 Hour Warthis one just doesn't make sense.you want me to believe a single raven able to travel to 12 different battlefields, return for supply and repair and fight 15 ACs + 3 pulverizers in just one day

>>17161183ty. btw, for anyone wanting this to work in emu, run a particular D3D build (https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects/benvanik/xenia/artifacts/xenia-d3d12.zip?branch=d3d12&job=Configuration%3A%20Release&pr=false) to make sure **everything** works.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3IWCboWopQSimple guide for anyone who wants to get started.
>>17161189ThanksDid anyone manage to download the regulations for 4?
>>17161205I'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.
>>17161214I'm going to be a bit mean and ask: Are you pestering because you play on 1.15? That's bad for you, you know.
>>17161223No but I'd rather not play on 1.00 either.
>>17158592Is this like the Project Wingman of Armored Core or is it being made by a known studio ? Because it sure does remind me of PW.
>>17161200V and VD aren't playable yet, they crash
>>17161734No, they work perfectly fine outside of the same AC texturing book FA has, due to the calls the decal system uses in Xenia not yet being finished? https://youtu.be/3F5uBmVvOhY
>>17161877Yeah I went past this intro just fine. It crash after that small bossVD randomly crash during the very first pilot setup screen
>>17161908Odd. I can't reproduce the same error. What's your computer like? Consider hitting up the xenia discord.
>>17161945It's an R1600 and a GTX1060. V crash with an error from xenia but VD just close downIt's fine though, I'm just glad I can play AC4/FA for now
>>17161181Someone here doesn't like being EVERGREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN
>>17161961Fair does. Personally, I'm happy I just got headtracking working in my AC clone. Give it a week or so to soften the edgecases and I'll probably make a thread asking about cockpits, instruments etc to poll you guys for what sorts of things you want in it. Huzzah.If you guys want head-tracking in your games (let's be honest, it should be in most mecha games and its not): Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_VN4mMA6CwParts:- https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2598657- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5PCS-SFH485P-880NM-5MM-EMITTER-GAALAS-RADIAL/142214177647?_trksid=p2485497.m4902.l9144eBay- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1W-Carbon-Film-Resistors-Full-range-available-10-pack-0-33R-2-2M-Free-P-P/263894011748?_trksid=p2485497.m4902.l9144Enjoy.
>>17161966To be honest I thought the V/VD companies where very forgettable, I only remember Evergreen being wronging me in some way. (don't remember what)
>>17162909They had corps?
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?
>>17163044No: 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.
>>17162052Head tracking is fucking retarded. You know the fucking monitor isn't going to move with your head, right?
>>17163077I 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=374The 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
>>17163072Huh, thanks. I swear someone here told me FA would be too hard without your endgame mech from 4..
>>17163155FA can be beaten 2/3 endings with a fucking starting frame, just get a bit creative with weapons.
>>17163231>creative with weapons.gib exemples
>>17163237dual machine guns and back rockets can take down basically anything
>>17163240really just 2 grenade launchers even more than enough
I just cleared ace combat 7 and holy shit I would fucking KILL to get an AC that is just ACFA but with Ace 7’s maps, radar and post-stage replayEspecially replay
>>17163155Someone was lying to you. FA is one of the easiest in the series.
>>17163237dual motorcobrasblades are OP on the infinite energy reg with their insane tracking
>>17163155Everything from 4 is garbage in FA
>>17163261>ace combat 7real quick, was it good?
>>17163261Wow anon, couldn't even make it last and savor the years long wait, huh?
>>1716323703 motorcobra duals as anon said, and dual CP48 back rockets. Change to Hitmans if you can't fit all 4.
>>17163901Oh yeah and change to a less hungry booster, and put on the lowest consumption Overed Booster you can unless you really love using AA. Dump all FRS Memory into EN output, KP output, EN capacity, and Load.
>>17163155>>171632311.00, missiles onlyRoleplay as Jesus Lynx
V is the best one.
>>17163354>infinite energy regwhose bright idea was this anyways
Guys do you know the music playing in here is? https://youtu.be/Wexk0V_RXDA
>>17167770Wow, what a close match.The song is "Song of the Ancients (Atonement)" From Nier Automata it seems. That's what Shazam spat out.>>17163237You 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.
>>17166774It works for more "cinematic" missions, Defeat White Glint doesn't feel the same if everyone is just floating on top of the water.
>>17166477Imagine loving the ground this much
>>17166774Something 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.
>>17169214Why are you always falling anon
>>17163007More like nations rather than corps, its a first for the games
>>17163560Yes, buy it now.
>>17160898>>17161183Pre-alpha fighter-mode is coming together nicely. First draft: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtELjiTNJKE
>>17169583hmm, is that supposed to be a combination or is it supposed to transform into that? It looks like a combination from first glance.
>>17171041Transform. 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.
>>17171303Not 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.
>>17171315That's a really good concept/design honestly, assuming the weird hands and arms aren't final
>>17171248>>17171315pls don't cut the sexy frame
>>17167770how did anyone ever make contact with a melee weapon in this game jesus christ
>>17172003>be scrub and can't into FAST>come across FAST blader with ridiculous tracking>???>profit
>>171720034th gen has insane blade tracking, there's even an FCS dedicated to it.
Are HRJ's any good in VD or should I avoid them?Also what are some strong weapon classes I was using Shotgun/Pulsegun combo in V but I want to try something different
>>17173740If 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.
>>17139673Why is this looks like a ripoff of Booster Type S-Gundam ?
ACV with unlocked framerate
>>17174846>demonstrating unlocked framerate>uses a still image
>>17174865I can't be fucked to make a webm and the number on the top left is enough to prove it worksWell, it still crash after this mission.
>like the aesthetic of legs>always end up making a tankI feel dumb. I should revisit the games and try to play as a fast machine.
>>17174895>try to make literally anything>it turns into a chunkier mid armed to the teethI feel your pain at least.
>>17139673i wish Kotobukiya still made the kits. they pretty much aren't on their catalog, and you have to go secondary market.please prove me wrong.
>>17176650They've been rereleasing older kits since last year. Noblesse Oblige, Oracle, AALIYAH, RIP/M, etc. A better portion of 2018 was the pre-order period while 2019 is the release period.
I beat Last Raven, then AC III. What should I play next?
>>17177876the rest, dummy
>>17177959which one first though
>>17177962Silent Line, Nexus, 4, 4FA, V, VD, 6
>>17177876>Last Raven as first A.C. game
>May Greenfield is ______
>>17178413I played for less than a hour and then gave up. Only years later I actually sat down and finished the game (mostly by picking missions you fight other ACs and nuking them with large missile arms).

Ok, so, I was fighting ultimate zinaida when all of a sudden i fell through the fucking floor. What?Did this happen to any of you guys?
>>17181963>>17181970Weird, and no. I only played the original ps2 version though.
>>17181970no but i did find that if your running the psp emulator that last raven seems to not work 100% on the newest version. i have been running a older version without any freezing or issues.v1.2.2 seems to be working without any problems

Playing AC4 on Xenia after playing all the AC3 tetralogy, any tips for a Ogoto build?
I'm loving Silent Line, great game.
>>17181963Ah, 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.
>>17188906It 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.
Never thought flamethrowers could be useful in LRhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHmcXIgu9h0
>tfw no Zinaida gf
>>17191450Who will be the "Dominant" in bed
>>17193062Real dominants like to be dominated in bed
what the fuck do you mean reaper squad J and Joshua are the same person
>>17193658Chief and the Reapers are prototype Pulverizers that were built to stop Strayed.
>>17193658Not exactly the same person but it's heavily implied that the League made a clone of Joshua and then turned him into an AI, creating J
Who's your favorite operator, anons? Nell is my favorite. She seems genuinely worried about the Raven's wellbeing.
>>17193961Fatman and Maggy
>>17193970I wish Maggy didn't have to leave us.
>>17193970Sheila, my first operator
>>17160258CAN'T SEE SHIT AT ALL.
>>17193961I liked Kasumi and Strayed’s relationship. I thought it was neat that while she sympathized with Orca’s ideals, she still supported Strayed in his decision to stop them in the League path.
>>17194234Kasumi 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.
What was his problem
>weapon armsbut why
So im wanting to play AC again, where and what roms and emulators can i get?
>>17194234>I liked Kasumi and Strayed’s relationshipMOMMY
I can't seem to get comfy with Nexus and its dual analogs
>>17195384I specifically started with Nexus because of dual analog, but after getting through the gens 1-3 from the beginning I much prefer the single analog setup. It just seems faster and more responsive to me.
>>17195384You'll get used to it just remember that the aiming isn't even actually analog
>>17195058They look cool and there are some good ones>>17195067Cool roms has every PS2 game, I know nothing of emulators though, I play them on my console.
>>17195049He hates annoyances.
>>17195058why not, anon
Why is SL's OP so kinohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_F815XCejOk
>>17197913AC3 has a better one
>>17197913Nexus' opening video is pretty kino
>>17171450>pls don't cut the sexy frameCut?
>>17197913the whole of frequency is really underrated tbqh
>>17200124Like the games themselves
>>17195058These were pretty good in last raven. Let you go fast while still doing decent amounts of amage
>>17197944>>17197913>>17197925All the openings are things of tremendous beauty. Me and my brother used to dream about "cutscene armored core:" playing a game that looked and felt as incredible as the opening movies. We're getting there I think.
>>17200777Taurus with missiles extension is really powerful
If energy weapons only consume energy why is there ammo limitation?
>>17194222Okay I laughed pretty hardI can hear the song in my brain
>>17200846Kinda like a sim or something, with the same sort of weight and variability of movement and action?
>>17202252I 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 >walkingObviously 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.
>>17202049They don't, they consume both but do way more damage as a result.
>>17202502>They don'tThen why shooting them does not cost any credits?
>>17174895>>17176469>not getting good at piloting so you can build mecha purely for aesthetics
>>17202547How do I get good with hovers though
>>17202552practice and messing around with the tuning
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCAMy18ptww>>17145205reminds me of the tr-6 hazel
>S rank all missions>reward is a shitty pistolWhat was from thinking
>S rank a mission>get some tuning pointsAnother reason why I love AC4
>>17202527because they're rechargeable
>>17202049Same reason why a Parry blade can run out of ammoIts a melee weapon ffs
>>17206588it uses explosives to drive the stake forward
>>17206930>Armored Core getting their ideas from the EDF
>>17206939in a universe where mecha are the dominant weapons system talking about practicality is forbidden, but are stake drivers or pile bunkers actually sensible weapons in any sense? why wouldn't a literal laser sword be superior in all instances?
>>17208171Mechas are very practical
>>17208171I always thought of it as the laser sword passes through but does some heat damage, whereas the pile is solid and packs an explosive charge that completely rips a machine apart.
I don't know if you guys will care or not but someone made a AC inspired album and I thought it was a pretty good listen so I'm dropping the download link here.http://www.mediafire.com/file/zngi553d2c6k27s/Armored+Core+-+Reminiscent.zip
What the fuck did you just fucking say to me, you little Irregular? I'll have you know I graduated the top of my class in the Ravens' Nest, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on The Alliance, and I have over 300 confirmed AC kills. I am trained in Dominant warfare and I'm the top pilot in the entire AC arena. You are nothing but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with piloting the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Mail? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Ravens across Global Cortex and your location is being traced right now so you better prepare for the Unmanned Suicide Weapon storm, maggot. 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. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, Irregular.
>>17202648>have to Srank every fucking mission for the maximum amount oftuning points possible in 4th genI hated the last few missions of FA for this
>>17210314Calm down Evangel, we all know you are all talk but no action
Reminder that we will never get a new Armored Core game
>>17210769We will get a remaster of Gen III games for PC though
>>17210781>not releasing all gens one by oneI'd sell my soul
>>17210786Your soul has very little value so it wouldn't help unfortunately
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7mQAisjRFEThis is basically Armored Core right?
Guys this thread has convinced me to re-buy V. I ashamedly never finished it(somewhere after the awful 'fang' bombs showed up) What's another 360 AC I should pick up? My cheap ass is only getting one more.
>>17210791I need this in my life
>>17210797You could get all other ones you have for the 360 like AC4/FA and VD
>>17210791No, flight looks more ZoE or A.C.E. the kawamori designs are tricking you.
>>17210791>coming 2019 for the nintendo switch
>>17210791that looks great
>>17211558I don't know manI'm pretty sure this is just armored core
I got the impression I miss way more shots with my machine gun in Silent Line than in III, did they change anything?
>>17215373AI got slightly less retarded.
>>17211583What's so bad about that
>>17210791not sure how I feel about it picking up and trowing the tank. if it was a smaller tank sure but that just looked wrong
DxM release date was leakedMay 24, 2019
>>17215417I will have to test against dumb opponents then
>>17216303does anyone honestly care, though
>>17219918I would if I had a Switch...
Is there any active AC streamer or youtuber worth watching?
>>17220070There is that one guy
>>17219918I have a friend who has a switch so yeah.
>>17220073>that one guyTBM I suppose
>>17220111>I have a friend>friendit's okay anon we wont judge you
>>17220111People who play AC don't have friends
>>17220148Yeah only autistic kids play Assassins Creed
Just got the beginnings of my armour overlay system ready.Basically its castoff/cosplay.With some luck the frames should be fairly standardized and adjustable in a character creator system so the player can just load in custom models as the overlays following a simple standard.yey.
>>17220506I didn't understand 1% of what you said
>>17220506Wait, so in armor she's a biped but after purging she's a quad? Do you plan on walking animations for each?
>>17221144She 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".
>>17139673>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hEDVoet028So we've reached that timeline where other companies and even indie devs are making more Armored Core-related content than From Software themselves.
>>17225448Don't lose hope bro Armored Core 6 this TGS for sure
>>17225448FCS is too small...
>>17225799Encourages skillful tracking, I think. A big problem with 4th Gen was that lock-on required little to no skill, hence why 5th Gen brought lockboxes back in the first place. This seems to use the same logic.
>>17225638This year's the year boys Those extra tracks on the ost release prove that ACVI is in development
>>17226448https://youtu.be/tC7Cmn68GSASounds like a comfy garage theme
Does it necessarily matter if stuff in the AC style isn't developed by From? I'd just as soon have lots of autistic game devs trying to make the perfect Indie Core.
>>17228546I would absolutely build to this.
>>17225448>robots barely touching the ground>everything else is is just as disgustingly derivative of ac4yuck, at least it looks like it has better gameplay than Project fucking Nimbus.
>>17202049You 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
Are dirty gaijins like me able to get the 20th anniversary soundtrack set from anywhere? Or is it some limited run thing that got scalped to hell?
>>17231280No, but you will have the community scattered around lots of indie games instead of everyone playing AC6
>>17231669First off, implying AC6 is coming, kek. From is all about that souls money. And second your parents threw you on your head too many times as a kid if you think people won't rush to play AC6 just cuz some indie cores are out.
>>17232245>if you think people won't rush to play AC6 just cuz some indie cores are out.I was thinking of a what if cenario where AC6 is never released
Is Nexus worth playing or should I skip straight to LR?
>>17232328The only ones that are optional are Nine Breaker and Formula Front
>>17232328Nexus is fucking great
>>17232328Play it. It's actually better than how much some people give it credit.
>>17232328>going into LR with no parts
>>17234149LR is easy anyway
>>17234149Hell, that's what I did. About half of Last Raven's early missions are so lame that they become easy money. You could get a decent AC by the time you reach Rim Fire.
