colour of zombies and Tyrant limbs
« on: May 02, 2021, 09:38:22 AM »
Hello,

It's great that chopped off zombies arms and kicked zombies heads don't disappear in the PC version. Not many versions have that. However, their colours look terrible and I believe this could be a glitch.

Some comparisons:

Japanese Saturn version (limbs disappear in NTSC-U Saturn version):

PS1 Sampler Ver 31-01 (a bit hard to see but the zombies head can be seen through the mirror, and only through it):

PC:

What tipped me off and makes me think this is a glitch, and not a bad artistic decision, is the fact that Tyrant's limbs appear pitch black on PC also, but perhaps both things are unrelated:

Could you please look into these for your patch? They look very jarring.

Edit:
and for the record, how they looked in the october 04 '95 PS1 proto version before they got censored:

Not going to take into consideration any prototype behaviors or platform differences, those are for mods. As for colored limbs, that's something that will be restored with the DX9 version, whenever that happens.
Make retro PC ports great again.
