>go to browse /vst/>no thread on pharaoh remake>visit steam page>mixed reviewswas it really that bad? i haven't played it.
>>1375374>Steam>mixedAnother proof that steamtards are brain-dead consoomers.The game is so fucking broken, it's a wonder it runs at all. Forget all the memes about mobile graphics - it's simply a bugfest and the dev has record of never fixing their games. So it's the classic case of remake nobody needed or asked for, done for the sake of getting money from naive fuckers
>>1375374Yes>graphics look worse>animations look fucking terrible>menus and everything else are completely divode of personality unlike the original.>literally removed war instead of trying to fix it.>still left in preditors killing all your walkers.>can't rotate the camera>bugs up the ass.>redid maybe 5 of the music tracks while everything else is that shitty audio upscale.
>>1375460The gaming communtiy is the most cuck/forgiving ever, look at nu male sky:>wow they are delivering 10% of what they promised after 10 years and after 10 more it will be good XDD I LIKE IT NOW
>>1375460>the dev has record of never fixing their games.You're dangerously close to libel. Please retract your statement.
>>1376261Actually most other hobbies I can think of are even worse.
>>1375374The only positive i can think of is that seeing their shitshow remake made me replay the original.
>>1375374Just play the original? Zoomers are fucking embarrassing.
>>1376462Not everyone wants to play a game with 800x600 resolution, 30 fps, blurred / stretched graphics and other niceties of old crap.
>>1376468Then go ahead and play worse in every regard new crap lmao
>>1376472If I’m to choose between one evil and another… I’d rather not choose at all.
>>1376477native hd widescreen mods exist
>>1376564Zoomoids can't even figure out file trees, how are they going to mod anything?
>>1376462I'd agree with this if the original was updated with higher resolution support and the ability to run in a window. Because it crashes right now every time i try to minimize it. Shit dosent fly in 2023.
>>1377001modsexist>>1376573but yeah, this anon is correct, zoomers can't even figure out how to torrent
>>1376261>that nigger retard internet historian videothanks for reminding me
>>1377074the problem with running the game in windowed mode is mouse panning tends to let the cursor escape the window
>>1377074>mods>exist>System requirement includes autismI don't have the specs for that shit anon.
>>1375374Trash cashgrab + self-hating white male tweaksNOBODY asked for thisWhat's wrong with the original?
just play nebuCHADnezzar instead
>>1376263>Stating facts>LibelPick one
>>1376468Imagine if only original Pharaoh was widely accessible on the market with HD and modern resolutions, also adjusted to run on modern hardware, and being like that for 14 years.Oh, right - you don't have to imagine that, that's literally the only way you can get the original nowadays.Why this remake was even made? Nobody knows, but judging from your retardation, it was aimed precisely at dumb fucks like you.
>>1377660This guy gets it. Pharaoh on GOG costs quarter (it was actually cheaper, but GOG increased the pricetag, anticipating people buying it after remake is released) of what the remake asks and has the HD patch pre-installed. Plus it offers you Cleopatra in the package, too. So you don't even need to mod anything on your own, the game already is modded.
>>1377660>>1377663It needs to have these "patches" and mods installed by default. It's a fail to make your users go hunting for that bullshit just so they can play the fucking game...
>>1377653What's the difference? Also, Nebu has not very optimistic reviews.
>>1377653Nebu is sterile and encourages making the exact same production facilities over and over.
>>1377872>Translation: I'm brain-dead retard that won't be playing this game anyway, but I'm gonna show off my power level as tech-illiterate zoomershit anywayIf you can't install a game on your own - you might be actually too young to use this site.
>>1378100Are you developmentally disabled? How can you be this stupid?? I said the game needs to have the thing's you're rambling about by default. "Installing the game" has nothing to do with it lol.
>>1378272>google is too hard for zoomieWhy are you even interested in this game, you clearly don't have the brains to play it.
Ok, you've convinced me to try old turds.What's the difference between Pharaoh / Cleopatra vs Zeus / Poseidon? And which is better?
Also, haven't new games like Nebuchadnezzar made old games obsolete?
>>1378282>Hurr durrr yew stoopidGood counter point 11/10You still haven't stated any good reasons why Pharaoh OG shouldn't come with the high res mod and fixes for playing in a window by default.It's literally part of GoG's model, fixing old games to run on modern hardware. And you seem to be against this for no real reason.
>>1378312Cant you read?> and has the HD patch pre-installed> So you don't even need to mod anything on your own, the game already is modded.
>>1378384Bullshit, you still have to mod the exe or replace it with a modded version with the GoG version.Also it still crashes when minimized either way.Fucking autistic retard. Thinking that kind of shit is acceptable in 2023...
>>1378448>Also it still crashes when minimized either way.Have you tried minimizing and maximizing the task?
>>1378289>What's the difference between Pharaoh / Cleopatra vs Zeus / Poseidon? And which is better?Generally speaking quite a bit.Pharaoh has a heavy focus on monument building. There is also the great game mechanic of water as many maps only have a limited space to build for people. Since it is also an older game walkers are also used for hiring so you really need to know how to properly place buildings and maybe even build slums.Zeus I find is a bit more refined and easier to learn. employment is universal and you rarely need to worry about land and vegitation. The focus is more on the missions and story since they decided to also make gods and events "real" so monsters can walk around and your relation with the god is much more important. If you are new I would suggest Zeus first but I and most people find Pharaoh more fun.
>>1378676I found Zeus to be borderline unplayable. Didn't understand how heroes worked. I'd really recommend Pharoah first because of its long well executed tutorial campaign that seemlessly leads to the real campaign.
>The Pharaoh is the heart of Egypt. The land is its body, and the people are its blood>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suWiJQ4L7IQ&ab_The reboot doesn't have these so it can fuck off
>>1378289Pharoah is better out of the 2, but the best game is Emperor. It's less talked about because burgers don't care about Chinese history
>>1378676>I would suggest Zeus firstI say it's best to play them in order (unless that anon really wants only one game) because it's harder to go back to the old features if you don't.
>>1375374One of the Steam guides is a pretty thorough Troubleshooting FAQ.
They didn't ability to rotate camera just because they had to make more sprites, what a lazy greedy fuckera.
>>1375374>was it really that bad?It's not terrible but it just does not have the same charm and soul of what came before. It feels more like an amateur fan remake than something published by a fairly large studio.
>>1378448>No, you MUST mod it on your ownThe state of never-game zoomersLike seriously, why do you think anyone is going to take your terrible bait? We get it, you are one big fucking retard, but why should anyone care?If installing pre-packed game with a simple installer exe is too much for you, you might be genuinely too stupid for this game.
>>1378676>if you want to hate this series and skip it entirely, just start with ZeusftfyIt's the weakest entry to the game, somehow even worse than the utterly terrible C3. If one is new, Pharaoh is the way and if they Pharaoh is too much due to monuments, then Emperor is the way. Any other game in this series can go fuck itself, with maybe the exception of C2 (yes, 2, not 3)
>>1378289Pharaoh and Emperor are the best. Depends on what you want in a city builder but both have their strong points and weak points.
>>1375374It's not bad, it's ATROCIOUS. Shit is somehow worse than the original that came out 2 decades ago. Anyone who buys this pos remake is an actual retard.
>>1375374we had a thread when it came out you absolute dimwit. the consensus was very fast that it's garbage
>>1377663>giving GOG money for what is essentially abandonwareanyone who does this deserves to be ripped off
>>1380812well sorry for not turbolurking 24/7may have been partaking in any number of activities at the time; going outside, having sex, etc
>>1380884You're not fooling anyone with those excuses. If you wanted a new thread to continue taking shots at this train wreck, you should've just said so. I think by now anons no longer find it funny to continue digging for new embarrassing bugs. I think the one with the merchant caravans getting stuck on roadblocks takes the cake. This game is like a viral prank.
>>1375374dunno but i fucking hate the new art and modelslooks like the globohomo mobile game
>>1375374>https://store.steampowered.com/app/646500/Egypt_Old_Kingdom/Has anyone played this by the way? I was thinking of getting it.
>>1377653Forgot about this one. Will try it in probably two to three years when I get the time.Also this is one ornery fucking thread. Imagine in twenty years when boomers on Talmudvision are complaining about their vidja re-remakes kek.>Back in my day we had rotation.
>>1379407If I remember correctly rotating the camera in the original didn't rotate the sprites, just the city's orientation. There's literally no excuse.
