Weekly Torch - the barrel of questions


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:

TV series,

Which one do you love?

The other questions will be answered quite soon, I am already on it,

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?

From Conor Doyle Q&A

‘‘Do we have cats or fishes in the game?
No we do not.’’

So no fishing in the game?..

I think they just did not animate or make their in-game models. I do not see reason why they should cancel that. It does not seem like an issue. Take rod, go to water, wait, fish takes bait. Fish achieved and put to inventory.

Why would you cut Blacksmithing minigame It was like one of best thing you could do in this game, there arent any RPG game with good crafting system. Only M&B mod created interesting prototype.

Now it is time for our Senior Programmer Michal Bartoň to answer some of your questions.

What can we expect from the PS4 Pro enhancement?

Will the content available during the PS4 pre-loading also be included with the PC and XB1 versions?

Hello Michal,

Now I understand why the first quest(start in Silver Scalice) is designed this way,… als a closed level. But if you hurry, you can finish it in 5 minutes. How will you bound the player, for 1 hour, in this zone?

How many percent of the TCR/TRC are ready? How many additional months do you need to finish the list?

How many Dev-Kits has WH?

Who makes the same job for the Xbox1?

Hi there,

1: How far will you support PS4 VR?
2. Will the achievements be visually represented ingame or will it just be a lousy popup. I know that TCRs require you to provide achievements for proceeding in the game.
3. Will you provide controller key rebinding
4. What is your modding strategy for consoles?
5. I hope that you will not cope with memory limitation by showing disappearing objects,

Thank you very much

I would like to ask, what is the best and the worst thing (in technical way) on PS4? Thanks and good luck.

Good Afternoon my name is Caleb White. I’m asking if there’s gonna be a possibility of Pre-Ordering the game for Ps4? Thank You

Disregard in case I am late with my questions:
Do you have Scorpio dev kit in the office?
For what reasons did you choose cry-engine over others?
What graphic card would you choose to enjoy KCD at 1080p on very high settings?
What other features were you programming except dialog system?

Now you can ask questions for our Scripter Alisa Zavodina, don´t be shy :slight_smile:

Were you living in Czechia before you got hired by WH or you moved here because of the job?

Hello! Will there be a board game of the Middle Ages in the game, it would be atmospheric to sit in such a beautiful world to play chess for example, it would add replay value to the game. If in this act there is no table game will there be in the following acts, after all, as far as we know, there will be only 3 acts? Thank you. (Google translator)
