steam is only a part of all the sales. for example, steam is not big in japan.

as sc seems popular with a dedicated fan base, they could really make money with DLC.

sure steam is only a part of the sales, and steam isn't big in japan

SC isn't big in japan either though... if T7 has sold about 2.5m copies over 13 months and since steam has about 500k of those sales we could infer from that and the 100-200k figure for SC that if SC were to follow the same trend it might have sold about 400-800k on consoles so far, so an estimate of sales so far could be between 500k-1m probably around the 800k mark

We don't know the console sales yet, right? I'll guess it's doing well there, it seems to have a lot of buzz and discussion, people playing it etc.

so it does seem that certain CAS clothing options lack "bounce" on females. which is...….like......totally unacceptable. :(
Great Scott, any notable ones? I know some clothes look like they "float" above the lower layers a bit, I usually don't use those ones.

By the way, didn't see a Libra of Souls story mode topic. I was wondering if Ivy shows up, and if picking "good" or "evil" choices would let you team up with Ivy, like how you team up with Maxi at the beginning? Unlikely, but I gotta know!

I have good news! I have finally found unused content among game assets! The bad news is that it's really trivial and uninteresting.

But here you go, an early version of SoulCalibur render and an unused Kyam portrait. So exciting!

Also, here's every single portrait from Soul Chronicles mode: https://mega.nz/#!hIVgjCYK!nbirCEwh2fwpe9nMvgLaXCNCLD8DGcUgiIGAmi8IKY0

The development team has been a bit sloppy in some regards. They could have had the portrait frame as a separate texture and flip some portraits on the fly rather than store them as separate textures. I imagine they would have saved at least 200mb by doing that. Another silly thing is that some re-used textures from SC4/5 are in lower quality because it looks like they re-encoded DDS textures from those games.

Ok guys, thank you all for watching my stream this week end, I tried to help every new comers I could.

I had an information since more than 1 week now (not a dlc name so don't be crazy plz, they will never share me a stuff like this, I'am also not here to play with you... it's more about a date where they will probably annouce something and I don't know if this will be huge or not), but since I'am also helping them, I can't share with you right now, I'am waiting that they gives me the green light or share some info before.

But since it has been a week now, I just wanted to say that don't worry and expect something without waiting too much longer. And I hope I would be able to talk more next week.

Oh that is cool, you're saying we will get an announcement of something soon but you just cant give any more details right now. I like hearing that we can expect something soon anyway. A lot of us thought it might be quite a while before we hear anything new.

A lot of things in the game indirectly point to Yun being a strong candidate for DLC. My heart is swelling :sc2yun2:
A lot of things? That's the only line in the entire game that I'm aware of that mentions him. You get a museum unlock after this part, too, but after this, no one mentions him, and he doesn't even get seen himself. Hilde, on the other hand, was mentioned at least three times, and I don't even believe she's possible, either, since she's too busy queening it up to be on the battlefield just like Yun-seong is too busy working on his Hwang shrine to even show his face. When Han-myeong has more screentime than you do, seek help.

Considering that, as I suspected, Talim's story only covers the very end of the timeline where fitting her in was possible, it's quite possible for the DLC to only add stories with similarly short stories there. This is assuming DLC after Tira shall have story content.

Tira coming with a Soul Chronicle honestly makes up for her being DLC at all. I love that they went to that effort. BUT. If they don't do that with EVERY DLC character, I will be annoyed. They've set the bar now, after all, lol.

Modding update: the first (public) mod has been released. It removes NM's chest armor and helmet. You can already do this in CaS ofc, but it's still an interesting test case. I also got the creator to switch Soul Edge onto one of Siegfried's CaS weapons, which I've really wanted since the beta (I pretty much want to play as NM but with Sieg's style).

Meanwhile, the very first mesh (as in imported/edited model) mod for Tekken 7 was just released. Given that it took well over a year and a half since launch, and SCVI likely uses a similar file system, we'll be waiting a good bit for cutom models.

"I see absolutely nothing wrong with CaS in ranked.

Yeah, big issue because I'm the only stick player of my group of friends so we have to keep pausing the game to switch controls. CSS button check would be useful, as would the game remembering each controller's button config like Skullgirls does (so that, for example, the fightstick can be unplugged or replugged and keep the same config no matter which player).

Idk about crashing, but my friend's PC hangs super hard when you remove controllers. We're convinced it has to do something with his Steam beta client having a bunch of controller drivers that don't play nice with SC upon (de)activating.
Well that sucks. My game crashed twice during some ranked matches and they still penalized me. Lost a 36 game win streak and some precious points :(

Man, I was just thinking how awesome Okubo did in such a limited space and budget, making quite possibly the best SC in a long time despite flaws that were out of his control. Hopefully Namco will allow him to make SCVII with a proper budget, because I want to see what he can do with that.

Indeed. I'm simply acknowledging the fact there is no pattern yet and that she was already in the game with her style completely functional for several characters story modes as well as arcade. Until the next DLC character is released, I would not assume Tira to be the norm.
