Both games showing here too now
I now have both remastered games and they're downloading. Both are 21+ GB in size which is (bio!)shocking (ha!) as the originals are both sub-10 GB in size. Anyway, I only got them to show in my library by searching for BioShock on the Steam store then clicking on Play for each one which then added them to my library. They were not showing at all until I did that.
Minor gripe but why does BioShock Remastered show AFTER BioShock Infinite in my library? Makes no sense... BioShock 2 Remaster shows right after the original BioShock 2... :bang:
Ah, right, B R comes after B I alphabetically but B 2 R is unaffected because it is the same as the original B 2 only with R! Really wish we had some kind of manual sort for the library to get round these quirks.
strange they're 12GB here
Download size is smaller then the final installed size. BioShock was about 11 gigs to download, but installed it's about 20.
I thought the same and it was just the second game, but then noticed that the remastered version was not under the original game like i had expected, but under Infinite.
Yeah, that annoys a little. Because a number comes before the alphabet. So, BioShock 2 Remaster falls after BS2. While Infinite is alphabetically before Remaster... that's just... ugh.
Several times I've starred at my library on Steam and just wished I could rearrange stuff.
the mouse movement is still pretty ****ed up in bioshock one
That's crap but I've always played these games with a controller personally. Of course, the only reason these Remasters exist in the first place is because of the PS4 and Xbox One so it is not surprising that priority has been given to the controller and mouse/keyboard second.
No they didn't. I just played the intro and when he looks around right before the plane crash you can see them. It's just darker with more smoke in the cabin.
Yeah, it would just look so much better.
It's why i still use the slow and buggy Mediaportal as an video player as it allows customisation of stuff like that.
Off to try it now, hopefully good news
And they downgraded the water.
Just played a little over an hour. Looks good, really good. You can quickly tell the increase in texture detail, the additional props outside the windows in the water.
And, yes, as said above, the overhead compartments are still there. Those earlier images were just pretty badly compressed.
And, now, the lights coming out from the compartments only shine down... as they should. Were as before they would also light up the areas above them.
Once I turned on v-sync the mouse movement got instantly better. With it off, FPS were over 400 and the mouse felt jerky and kind of janky.
With v-sync on... much better and more manageable.
Tried it, no 21:9 support, mouse acceleration and no custom FOV slider.
I am trying to run sweetfx for the Bioshock Remastered. But it doesnt seem to work? Can anyone tell me if its using dx 9 or dx 10?
Am I being dumb? Can't find any advanced graphics options...
There aren't any.
Which... you don't really need any. It's running on the same engine as the original releases, they've updated the textures and models.
But, ultimately, the game runs just the same as the original 2007 version did. Only updated and fixed from various issues that were common on newer OS.
Also... physics that run higher then 30fps. Looks so good.
But, I was running between 400 to 500 fps before I put v-sync on.
Have you been able to run any sweetfx or reshade on Bioshock 1 remaster? I have been trying to find a solution for it. I have tried 32 and 64 bit dll, the game doesnt start using 32bit dll and it starts with 64bit but doesnt load sweetfx (no toggle message or anything). Any clue?
Ok thanks, thought I was being blind lol, runs pretty good, over 100fps with 4K DSR, looks nice too, good to be back in rapture
There is an expanded FOV toggle but yeah, no 21:9 support.
Use my self-extracting archive to fix it.
I thought they imported BS1 and 2 into the Infinity engine.
BS1 original download size is 5800MB
BS1 remastered is 20000 something
Wonder what the extra space consists of?
