Nope, same problem.


To the poster who mentioned the Akira thing on the bridge screens. Ya I noticed that too. Also all the "navigation" section of the bridge all seem to point to the same system.

This is something that makes me chuckle as well.

In City of Heroes, their first MMO, when you zoned into Atlas Park, you get a loading screen of Atlas Park. Zone into Brickstown, you get the Brickstown load screen.

Ah well, IMHO this is very minor and I really don't care one way or the other. There's a lot of other stuff in the 45 day patch that I want more.

I agree, I think something needs to be done about those loading screen pictures.

I agree more appropriate or even just more variety would be nice.

But it's not high priority.

It would be just like the show if your screen fadeds to black and plays commercials right when you get attacked.

Honestly, Cryptic needs to hire somebody who's entire job is to inspect everything in the game with a critical eye for detail. They are so terribly sloppy in the details that, when you add up all the little sloppy mistakes, it becomes one giant problem.

I hate Loading Screens. Its old school 1999/2000 (EQ1) tech.
There is nothing "Next Generation" about loading screens.
Thats like using Ion drives when you should be using Warp technology.

Zone transitions now-a-days should have Cinematics or better yet be seemless.
Cryptic Devs- Give a call over to the guys at Icarus/Fallen Earth for tips on how to do seemless instancing/zoning
