Destiny In Doubt 720p
Images should always be of the highest quality available; screen captures should always be of high definition game-play (720p+) and images should never be resized or remastered. Images that are pixelated, contain artefacts or watermarks, or are smaller than 300x300px will be deleted unless no other image of higher quality is present. The following examples give a rough guide to what images are and are not acceptable in terms of quality:
Destiny in Doubt 720p
Despite the PS4 and Xbox One being out for over a year now, today we're seeing a flashback to the launch of both consoles in 2013. Visceral has revealed that in order to make it to 60 FPS, the nearly required framerate threshold for shooters, the games will be 900p/720p resolution for PS4 and Xbox One respectively.
Stadia can stream up to 4K resolution at 60fps, depending on the quality of your internet connection and membership tier. Google recommends at least 10Mbps for a stable 720p stream, but the service will dynamically change resolution based on the speed and stability of your internet connection.
Google recommends connections of at least 10Mbps to stream games smoothly at 720p, and I can confirm that was true during my time playing Stadia. When playing with an internet connection of 3Mbps down and 4Mbps up, the game played pretty choppily. There were times where the game felt smooth for a couple of minutes, but I would get instances of stuttering pretty frequently on a connection of that speed. At higher speeds of around 30Mbps streaming in 4K things improved but lag was still noticeable in random jolts. At 100Mbps and above, things were smooth, with minimal lag present.
The funny thing about all of these books is that they all more or less say the same thing: mind your own thoughts, stay positive and focused on your goals, ignore self-doubt and criticism, visualize and concentrate on what you want and you will eventually have it.
No, because if your TV isn't native 1080p anyways...then even if you didn't turn off the 1080p option, your TV would force downscale the game into 720p for you. So turning off the 1080p option isn't doing anything...as the game has no choice but to downscale for you.
But if the TV is 720p and it takes 1080p and downscales it, Isn't the console still working hard to push out 1080p (with 30 frames) so that effort is wasted. How does the PS4 know that it is being downscaled so all games will be pushed out at 720p. Isn't the downscale by the TV and not the PS4?
Why, if they are able to create 60 frames a second, would they not do it all the time? The ps4 is able to cope, it was built to. There is no benefit from only upframing when it's downscaled, so i don't see why this would happen really. I doubt many, if any, games would do this.
Your PS4 knows it's only running on a 720p native TV because it's receiving information from the TV stating that there's nothing in the TV that can support 1080p resolution, therefore...even with 1080i and 1080p selected in your options, the PS4 already knows it can't display those resolutions so it resorts to 720p automatically.
When you drop the resolution from 1080p to 720p, you're now rendering a lot less pixels (read about it here: Difference Between 720p and 1080p Video Resolutions). The frames it now has to render are smaller and its easier for it to push out more frames every second. It's kind of the opposite of how you get framerate drops when a lot of stuff is happening: there ends up being so many things going on that the hardware now has to take even longer to render each frame, and it slows to a crawl. It's also why you can mess with a lot of PC games and keep a high resolution but turn down other effects to get a higher framerate. The only option consoles really have is disabling resolutions, so that's the only thing you can do to up the framerate.
PC and Mac need at least 35mbps for streaming up to 1440p or 1600p at 120 FPS. SHIELD TV requires 40mbps for 4K HDR at 60 FPS. And Android requires 15mbps for 720p at 120 FPS, or 25mbps for 1080p at 120 FPS.
Both versions are also targeting a 30 FPS framerate, which should put a lot of Wii U owners at ease. I know the E3 demo from last year struggled to maintain a consistent framerate, but Nintendo rarely releases games in a shoddy state. If anything, some of the graphical quality may be lowered on the Wii U, but I doubt even that will happen.
Sony is no doubt enjoying its resurgence this console generation, with its powerhouse PlayStation 4 selling like hot cakes -- 13.5m units globally to date. The corporation is now looking to bolster its successes with a much smaller sister device, the PlayStation TV microconsole. But what exactly is it, and why would you want one? WIRED.co.uk goes hands on with the gadget to find out.
It's simple to set up, a matter of generating an authorisation code to allow the machines to speak to each other. Once connected, you'll be able to play anything running on your main console. The PS TV's resolution for PS4 games maxes out at 720p, so you won't get the full HD experience, but Sony expect the bulk of use to be on smaller, secondary screens where the loss of resolution won't be as noticable. Testing racing game DriveClub, streamed to a 24" TV, the game itself looked great; it was only in menus and any onscreen text where the drop from 1080p to 720p was really perceptible. A wired connection to your router is recommended for best results, though you'll be able to set the quality of the stream yourself if you want to use a WiFi network. A wireless stream in home conditions proved stable though, with no dropouts or lagging over the course of a solid hour's use.
In his own eyes, Patton was larger than life and stood outside time. Standing on a North African battlefield where Carthage was attacked by Rome, he says "I was here," and he means it. He believes in reincarnation and destiny, and when he is benched on the eve of the invasion of Europe, he rants, "The last great opportunity of a lifetime and I'm left out of it? God will not allow it to happen." That swagger was his strength and weakness. He could inspire men to heroic feats, he was a brilliant strategist, but he was a genius at getting himself into trouble. In a war where millions died horribly, he slapped a shell-shocked soldier and his career was derailed.
Franklin J. Schaffner's "Patton" (1970), released at the height of the unpopular war in Vietnam, was described by many reviewers at the time as "really" an anti-war film. It was nothing of the kind. It was a hard-line glorification of the military ethic, personified by a man whose flaws and eccentricities marginalized him in peacetime, but found the ideal theater in battle. In this he was not unlike Churchill; both men used flamboyance, eccentricity and a gift for self-publicity as a way of inspiring their followers and perplexing the enemy. That Patton was in some ways mad is not in doubt--at least to the makers of this film--but his accomplishments overshadowed, even humiliated, his cautious and sane British rival, Montgomery.
Note that he questions the evil of the act. He places doubt in her mind by suggesting that she may have simply misunderstood the command and that it was not actually a sin. He also implies that consuming the forbidden fruit is possible, even normal. We see this today as Satan re-labels what were once sins into acceptable things:
Unfortunately, our duo are separated again as Yen is captured and held prisoner. The strange crone from the hut pays her another visit and this time Yen obliges, uttering the spell to summon herself to the hut. This time she asks for what she needs to do to regain her powers, and the answer? Why, it's capture Ciri, of course!! No doubt our favourite sorceress has an ulterior motive in mind here, but it's unclear whether she'll be as ruthless as before and sacrifice the girl to get her powers back. I'm hoping she tries to find out who this weird hut witch is first.
This film is an entertaining and thrilling mix of melodrama, music, history, grief and joy, showing the best and worst sides of human nature. The story is set in medieval Moorish Spain, and concerns the conflict between Averroes; a historical humanistic Muslim philosopher; and a group of reactionary fundamentalists. It is extremely well acted and the characters are sympathetic as well as credible. It is often forgotten that many of the Islamic societies of the Middle Ages (particularly in Spain) were way ahead of Europe in science, mathematics, medicine, religious tolerance and most intellectual pursuits. However, there were periodic and sometimes serious conflicts with those who resented these trends.This is not just an historical epic. The Egyptian director, a very courageous man named Youssef Chanine, deliberately molded the script to show how fanaticism not only undermines a society's intellect, but destroys the very souls of its members. Particularly disturbing, but highly relevant to our times is his portrayal of the subtle manner in which young men are recruited into these movements and about how empty and dishonest they turn out to be.Although the population of medieval Andalusia was 10-15% Jewish and Averroes had extensive contact with both Jewish and Christian intellectuals, there isn't a Jew in sight and the only Christians depicted are evil, fanatical, external enemies who enter into a secret pact with the fundamentalist cult. While this is not entirely accurate and a gross simplification of the actual situation at the time, I don't fault Mr. Chanine. He has endured extreme legal harassment in the Egyptian courts over this and another film as well as extensive death threats against himself and his family. Merely exploring the themes portrayed in this movie has put his head on the chopping block, and any sympathetic depiction of Jews or Christians would have resulted in the banning of the film and possibly his head rolling into the basket. He deliberately crafted this film to educate his own society about the moral corruption and debasement of violent fanatical behavior and no doubt wanted to make sure the message got out.A bold, yet gently provocative film by a very brave man. 350c69d7ab
