Character animations powered by ANT, what EA Sports uses.


No Euphoria :(

Agreed, 2142 is an incredibly underrated game. Titan mode is one of the most awesome things to come out of the battlefield series.


yeah I freaking loved drop podding onto a titan and working into the interior to destroy it and then jumping off.

I loved it when it worked, but for me it very nearly never did. It almost never played out well, because once the shields were down, either one of two things happened. The enemy titan because a non stop flood of mines, RDX and grenades in every corridor on all levels, thus becoming impenetrable, or both teams just sit in their titans seemingly forgetting that the missile silos exist. Either way, the game immediately starts to drag on and on, and people start praying that at least one team is actually terrible at defense and that they'll crumple right away so the match can finally end.

...Alternatives were scenarios where people sat in the AA turrets and did nothing but shoot at the enemy titan's shields all match, or at least a 3rd of the team loiters around the hanger bay waiting for the gunship.

A more user specific issue was the lag. I could never seem to find a titan match that didn't. Beyond that, it was pretty fun, though I wished the titan was larger. A multi-level titan interior would have been so cool, but I guess it would have made all the problems I just listed even worse, lol.

Can't say I've ever seen an impenetrable defense by a team who actually worked together. a hard defense yes, but not impenetrable.

I have, and good skills isn't the core of it either. Good communication is the key.

ANy modern game should use Euphoria for character animations. at least if you're using something else, don't brag about it.

2142 was extremely laggy for me. I hated the future stuff. And the vehicles really didn't cut it for me. I did like the Titan game mode though.

But I have seen Euphoria, and they say it's the same system used in EA sports games.

No point in having two threads about the same thing.
