The new auras look terrible, less visable and just ugly. Bring back the old auras.
while it does look nice, in terms of gameplay, it is much more difficult to see auras of survivors when playing killer. If your not paying attention to bbq, you will miss the the survivors completely. If next to a gen, almost impossible to see.
Agree, on Ormond the auras are basically nonexistent.
Do you have a picture?
I also agree with this, I am now struggling to see Players that are the other side of the map with BBQ, I prefer the older ones.
there's a thread in the feedback section.
Me neither, I could not see survivors with barbecue at all.
There was literally zero point in making them less noticeable. I’ve never seen a single person complain about how they were.
It's hard enough for me to see, I can't imagine what it would be like now for colorblind people.
Impossible to see survivors aura
I was just about to post this. I played one game and thought "okay the auras are clearly just bugged" but they were the same in the second game which led to me finding the patch notes and noticing the aura change. I haven't seen any chest, totem, door, or generator aura, but the survivor and killer auras are poor, to put it politely. They're far too slender, too dark and generally just really difficult to actually see. They remind me of Echoes from Mirror's Edge: Catalyst if any of you have played that game. #revertauras
I'm colorblind and thought these changes were just screwing me over harder. I'm honestly glad to see others are having issues since BHVR haven't been willing to give ANY colorblind options in 4 years (I don't give a [BAD WORD] about blood, let me change the auras that are normally red since they're supposed to be visible, and scratchmarks, holy [BAD WORD])...if others hate it too then there's a chance in hell we'll get it fixed.
I agree. The auras are trash. They look like x-rays or something, but they're useless now.
Killers said that they used BBQ only for BP, so this is not a problem :). Anyway as a surv I don't know which killer I'm playing against, I can't recognize their auras
Another couple screenshots. Really hard to see gens or survivors now.
I do hope colorblind players get options really soon, been asking for 'em aswell since the game is all around auras and scratches, so best of luck, maybe they will do something soon.
Not had a chance to get on myself so i don't know what they are like first-hand but going off your screenshots they sont look as bad as everyone is saying..
My opinion might change once i get into a game though.
Why should someone use BBQ only for BPs? It is the combination of aura reading and bps that actually makes this perk quite nice. I wouldn't use it at all if they removed one or the other feature.
Here's my question. Why did the update not include a disclaimer that said:
"If you have even the slightest bit of color blindness we here at BHVR hate you. We don't want you playing our game. We would rather you play anything else. For that reason we have decided to make auras almost completely indistinguishable to those with any degree of color blindness. We realize the ability to see an aura is a critical part of this game. But if you're color blind you don't deserve to play anyway."
Up until this point I had refrained from buying RE resistance because I was still having fun with this game. This is literally game breaking. I have played a few games since the update and have had an extremely hard time seeing auras at all. At times I've literally not been able to see them. I suppose I will check here on this forum ever so often to see if they have changed it back. Until then I want the devs, mods and everyone else associate with BHVR here to know 3 things.
1) I have loved this game for a long time. I have played through changes I loved and changes I hated. Through it all the game remained one of my favorite ever.
2) Today BHVR just broke the game for me. Not with some nerf or buff to a killer or survivor. But with a change that basically made a critical aspect of the game invisible to me. Thanks for all the fun I've had until now. I still wish the game and all it's player (at the least the ones that can actually see everything) continued fun and success.
3) While I really do wish you success I want to express my complete disappointment that no one at BHVR thought it would be a bad idea to change something that makes your game nearly impossible for those with any sort of color blindness.
Who ever said that? BBQ is used for BP AND tracking.
they look like some X-ray thingies.
At least it will look cool when I run leprose lichen demo now.
I like them better, to be honest. They were comically bright and easy to read even across the map before. I feel like this actually fits the art style a little better and means you have to spend at least a split second paying attention to see what's going on, instead of having bright neon colors, crystal clear, from a mile away.
They look awful compared to previous auras imo, you almost can't see the Killer in the picture. And these auras on Ormond? Nonexistent...
I also faced an object of absession and she was barely visable....
Auras of gens are almost invisible when the gen is (not that) far away
It's been very inconsistent with auras being solid, I hope this is only a placeholder while they work on making better auras that are less likely to be buggy, as they definitely have been in the past.
I posted this as a reply in a thread in general discussion, but wanted to post it here too:
It seems like they have a scrolling alpha mask going like over them, sometimes making parts invisible less or more.
It's game breaking for me. I have some color blindness. Was able to see auras before this without problem. Today I have played a few matches and can't see the majority of auras, and it's a struggle to see the ones I have seen. BHVR just broke their own game for me.
