Conker, more coming to Project Spark this fall

13 Comments

I really hope this takes off. I think the opportunities are huge to create a whole new "indie" type market for games on the Xbox One.

 

Also I love the Conker addition. I never played a Conker game but I think it is a really cool idea to bring old characters into Project Spark so people can create new stories with them. 

Start playing other peoples' creations, try to remix them, learn as you go, and you'll find your muse.

Good excuse to get an Xbox One or a Surface Pro 3! Alternatively, the cheapest way to play this game is to buy an Xbox 360.

l love project spark as well. However the game does not offer many options for HiDPI displays. I have a Yoga 2 Pro laptop and it runs painfully slow. If I ajust the screen resolution in Windows to a much lower resolution (1080p) the game runs very well. The game itself allows me to ajust some graphics settings and they are all set to low, even the resolution in the game is set to low. Not that I know what that means in actual resultion that is.. since it does not show it.

Why do I have to change this in Windows in able to run the game? I do the same when I run Civ 5 on my Yoga 2 Pro and all though it is painful I do it when I want to play that game in particular. But project spark is not only a Modern Windows app / game. It is also developed by Microsoft. It is simply not acceptable as it is today. I know it runs on my laptop. Just not on the HiDPI resolution which is understandable since it only has integrated intel graphics. Just let me change it properly in game all ready so that I can play with decent FPS...

Just got a response via chat on projectspark web site. Apparently it is not a bug but a feature not yet implemented. Cause the game uses native Windows resolutions today. It is something they are aware of according to the guy I spoke to. But it is a very low priority functionality to be added, if at all.

Considering it is still in beta I will not bug them more on the matter. But I hope they some day fix it. After all HiDPI screens are not getting less common these days. Even the Surface Pro 3 will probably encounter something similar despite having a somewhat lower resolution.
