Good. Sounded like a grubby cash-grab attempt to me and a dark road I don't think we want the industry to go down. I'm all for holding devs/pubs responsible for their claims but to me, lawsuits are not the way to go.

Thanks. Was having trouble accessing the site.

Still don't personally like the solution they used for MP resolution but it definitely didn'r warrant a lawsuit of all things.

The dude behind the complaint contacted me personally after I covered the story. He seemed to be fairly adamant about it based on the principle, discussing how little it would end up being when split up among all class members of the suit.

Still delusional, but not a troll.

This lawsuit was the stupidest thing that happened in gaming that year.

Basically, KZ shadow fall provieds a full HD output without scaling but uses information from previous frames to fill up alternating columns of pixels. What this guy was saying, I want my frame to be freshly rendered, right out of the oven. Or something.

Just to clarify for anyone on GAF without legal knowledge, "dismissed with prejudice" just means that the plaintiff can't file another lawsuit on the same grounds as this suit. Nothing like how we'd typically use the word prejudice outside of the legal realm.

Looks like there was a settlement but the public is not privileged to its contents.

under seal filing is a procedure allowing sensitive or confidential information to be filed with a court without becoming a matter of public record. The court generally must give permission for the material to remain under seal
