Weekly Torch - the barrel of questions

I sit at my desk and work with Visual Studio (which I personally hate)

I share your pain. So when are you going to start working on the Linux port? :wink:


Hi tomas!

The game needs at least a 4 core processor. What works better: a very fast 4 core CPU or averaged 8 core CPU? Or should I buy a 16 core CPU for best performance? :slight_smile:

Are all cores dynamically balanced or are some threads fixed on one core(maybe the AI system)?

Does WH have Ryzen CPU systems for testing? How is the game performance compared to Intel (normally the Cryengine works good with a Ryzen CPU)? Will there be extra optimization for Ryzen?

How big is the performance differance between 8GB and 16GB RAM?

The AI system is the biggest bottleneck for the performance and the fps. What´s the limit? How many NPC can be show (view field) on X1 or PS4 with more then 30 fps (for the big battles)?

Well, one serious question for Tomáš :smiley:
"17) If you could say something to the fans of Kingdom Come: Deliverance, what would it be?
If you have ever wanted to be a game developer, go now and start working in the nearest gaming company. It is now much easier to join the industry than you might think."

I’m looking to be a developer but there are no game developing studios around here, how serious can this be while driving from 100km distant city to Prague? :smiley: Btw looks like you’ve got into right company, držim ti palce!

To reply on Tomáš :slight_smile:
"So what are you going to do? :slight_smile: "
With commuting? For now I hope to work in city I live in :smiley: However question of daily commuting to Prague is still open, in case something goes wrong here.
Or do you mean job I aim for? :slight_smile: Right now I hope in some frontend development, due to lack of skills in core programming (C++, C#, Python etc…). Long story short, I thought making money fast is better than university studies, so I quit and today I regret :slight_smile:

Please contact us via jobs@warhorsestudios.cz, even if none of the descriptions here matches your skills…




Now it is time to ask questions to our 2D Artist Pavel Beskeyd


And now you can ask questions to our Scripter Tereza “Fura” Semecká

Hi Tereza,

I think this is nearly impossible to make this working AND fun.
From the beta: Fighting in the night/dark is a waste of time, because you die. I tried two times the battle in the night , no chance… after 5 seconds I lost the orientation and didn´t find the battleground before the end. :smile:

This quest can only work if it is very limited and liniear, Or with nightvision… how does it work???

Will you make a MOD or DLC where Henry is a female druid? :slight_smile:

What was the reason for the wrong animation? Wrong database?

When starting a new quest, is there an extra savepoint (automatic)?

Which is your favorite quest? One of your own designed? Or is there another one,… which is the best?

Do you have pets?

What´s the next step? Any plans?

You mentioned that you also working at new quests.
Are those new quests for planned DLCs or for the main game?

Now you can ask questions to our Quality Assurance member Luboš Suk


Hello Luboš,
are you only testing the PC version, or also the consol versions?

Is there a kind of issues/bug on which you are specialised?

The code basis is the same for PC and consoles!(?) Are there any specific bugs which only occur in the console versions?

The load/save system in the alpha/beta build is a mess. After this the save system has been changed. What´s the actual status? Can we expect a stable rock working improvment???

Keep calm and be patient (and don’t be a lousy troll)<

Is it possible to fix all the main bugs in the next 3-4 months? I´m a little worried about the deadlines, but maybe you can fix everthing just in time. :slight_smile:

Do you better work with or without music?

How do you relax after work?


The answers of Luboš Suk and Tereza “Fura” Semecká will be here soon, but for now, you can ask more questions to our tool programmer Martin “Šouris” Šourek.

  1. What would a perfect game according to your wishes look like?
    A complex, story-based RPG game with cooperative multiplayer (not the MMORPGs). I believe there is nothing like it.

May I recommend you Divinity: Original Sin and upcoming Divinity: Original Sin 2?
I played the first one many times with my friends and even with my wife - with real split screen couch coop! Amazing game…

What was that about? :joy:

Some kind of bet or you just enjoy wearing trendy swimsuits? No judging. :smirk:

Skald, our in-house design software<

Is there an actual video which explains and shows the software?
Maybe direct with a quest from the game? :wink:

Are there plans to make a version for modding? As open source?
Or sell the software as a lizence to other companies?

I have made Skald usable, fast, and user friendly<

The development of skald startet some years before you joined WH, but now you are the only guy who takes care of the software? A fairly big responsibility!

I participate in automated profiling<

When checking the frames on the performance map(X1),… most of them are not over 30 frames.
Runs the PC build better? With more frames?

funniest bugs last month<

Is there a plan to make a video with the craziest and funniest bugs? Dana posts sometime this stuff… :slight_smile:

Time to come up with questions for our Animator Conor Doyle

Is melee fighting on horseback going to make it to final game or just horseback archery?
Can you pull off the person from horseback and can others do the same?
Are there other ranged weapons except bows?
Is there combat option to unarm opponent?

Not taking over the world while I had the chance…

There is always a second one… start today! :slight_smile:
Which kind of ruler would you be?

Do you also make animal animations?
Is it harder to do than human animation (having mocaps)?
Do we have cats or fishes in the game?

Which programs do you use?

Have you learned czech before you came to Czech republic?
