Old-school first-person shooter fans, here is something really special for you today. Modder ‘darknovismc’ has released a new version of the DirectX 11 renderer for some classic Unreal Engine games. This new renderer add some new graphical features, including support for hardware tessellation.
Going into more details, this DX11 renderer works with Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Deus Ex and Rune. These dll extensions allow you to play these games on full HD resolution with some modern-day features.
For instance, it adds support for ambient occlusion which gives realistic ambient lightning and shadownig effects. Moreover, it introduces Screen Space Reflections which imitate reflective and shiny surfaces.
Furthermore, these classic games now support hardware tesselation. In case you didn’t know, tessellation increases mesh complexity, gives smoothess and roundess to characters and game objects.
It’s also worth noting that this DX11 brings support for Parallax Occlusion Mapping. This feature adds bumpiness on near to camera surfaces. Also, it adds support for HDR in order to simulate light adaptation and add more vivid colors.
You can download this latest version of the DX11 renderer from here. Below you can also find an older video that shows Unreal Tournament with the DX11 renderer.

The cover is in Korean, but if you look at the blue and white rectangles that outline the storage requirements and compatibility, you can see that next to the one marked HDD it's labelled as 100GB. Whether these images are real remains to be confirmed and even if they are it's unclear whether the 100GB would be referring to a single disc or be taking into account the size of the whole collection which we know will arrive across multiple blu-rays. What we do know for sure about the cover for now is that it looks cool and is reversible. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/02/16/never-played-final-fantasy-7-episode-2-don-corneos-mansion"] It's no real surprise this game is going to take up space, especially based on the stunning cinematics, like this opening movie as well as some of these (slightly odd) new character designs. If you're not convinced or just want a nostalgia hit, check out this comparison to the original release. For those excited for the remake, you can preorder it to receive these bonuses. If you've already done so, you better confirm that with Square Enix to make sure it doesn't get cancelled. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/01/31/final-fantasy-7-remake-theme-song-trailer"] The Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released on April 10, 2020 after a one month delay and this means the PS4 exclusivity will also push back other console releases.

Behaviour Interactive has revealed the all-new “Chains of Hate” update for the asymmetrical multiplayer horror game, Dead by Daylight. This major new content installment introduces a new killer, The Deathslinger who is a speargun-wielding engineer.
As the press release reads, The Deathslinger has an ear for machines and has a powerful, destructive Hex. His speargun is a heavily modified, hybrid rifle that replaces conventional ammunition with a razor-sharp spear affixed to a chain.
In addition, the update allows gamers to play as the new survivor Zarina Kassir. Zarina Kassir is a daring filmmaker with a knack for staying quiet and manipulating sound. Also, while full of health, Zarina can instantly heal other Survivors from dying to injured, or from injured to healthy.
The Chains of Hate update also launches Dead Dawg Saloon, a new playable map. This early settlement on an unforgiving frontier was once the location of an all-out gang war that resulted in a bloodbath.
In order to celebrate this, the team has also released a new teaser trailer that you can find below.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!

The StreamCam is strikingly different from any other webcam in Logitech’s line-up. It features a boxy design with a larger lens element. Instead of the usual flat plastic face, Logitech has trimmed the front with a fabric covering that fits right in with the company’s MX Speakers or the Amazon Echo Dot. It looks stylish and modern but seems like a mismatch for modern gaming rigs. The black version is a better fit, but it’s the first example of some odd design choices Logitech made here.Apart from its look, Logitech has made a number of enhancements to the camera itself. The aperture has been lowered to f2.0, which is almost a full stop below the C922’s f2.8. The camera’s sensor is still too small to offer the same bokeh you could expect from a nice camera and lens, but that doesn’t mean it’s pointless. A larger aperture means it can take in more light and offer better performance in dark settings. The StreamCam is flexible in how it can be set up. The mount that comes pre-attached allows you to position it on the top of your monitor like normal, but it can also be unclipped and rotated to capture vertical video. It’s a neat feature that no other webcam I know of is capable of, and makes the StreamCam more versatile – but I’m left wondering who it’s for. Most streamers don’t use vertical video at all, and for social media applications like Facebook Stories, very few people use anything other than a smartphone. Much more useful is the second mount Logitech included, which allows you to attach the StreamCam to a tripod. To make use of the StreamCam’s 60 fps at 1080p, you’ll need a USB 3.0 connection. This was a major issue when the Brio launched and led to many people connecting their webcams incorrectly. The StreamCam side-steps that problem by ending its cable in a USB Type-C connection. If you’re connecting over Type-C, there’s no way to connect it “wrong,” but if you’re using a PC that’s a few years old, you may not have a Type-C port at all. Logitech recommends using an adapter in this situation, but doesn’t include one in the box, which feels awfully stingy for a product that costs $169. It’s also not common for webcams to require USB-C, so there’s a good chance some streamers will buy the StreamCam only to find out they can’t use it. Using Logitech Capture, the camera is able to offer a couple of neat tricks others don’t, including Image Stabilization and Auto Framing. Image Stabilization is a head-scratcher. Most webcams are set in one place and rarely move. They don’t need image stabilization. Turning it on causes the camera to zoom in to hide the shaky edges and still didn’t eliminate jostling when I bumped the desk. In my case, it just wasn’t worth the reduced field of view to leave turned on. Auto Framing is more interesting but feels a little gimmicky. The StreamCam offers the best face tracking I’ve seen on a webcam and uses that to follow you as you move around the frame. It works remarkably well and was able to move the frame to follow me anywhere I moved in its 78-degree field of view. It desperately needs a sensitivity slider, however, because the mix of pan, tilt, and zoom moved too much to be useful instead of silly as I would lean in my chair. I can see the benefit if you move from place to place in a stream, though. Another problem is that the camera doesn’t do this natively, so using it with OBS or XSplit involves leaving Logitech Capture open in the background. The program is lightweight, but if your system is already near its limit, it’s not something you’ll want to leave running. The rest of the software feels like it’s still in a beta state. You can choose between Streaming and Recording settings, which trades off frame rate for exposure. The Streaming setting didn’t feel well-tuned, and left my image darker than if I dialed in settings myself. Under the Image Settings tab, you can tweak brightness, contrast, and sharpening (and will need to for the best results) but the sliders are both too small and don’t update until you let go of the mouse. What should be a simple slide requires lots of clicks. After seeing how everything worked, I went back to the sliders built into OBS because they felt much more functional.
