Title: New Skate Game! Skater XL
Post by: jboogie1844 on December 07, 2018, 01:45:13 PM
I've been lurking here for years but I finally made an account to share this because I haven't seen it posted yet. A new skate game is coming to PC and it's getting an early access release on Steam December 19th. Made by the guys who made the Skater mobile app.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4KMBhFIvOA

They had a little press release come out here too: https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news/skater-xl-steam-early-access-1203083983/ (https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news/skater-xl-steam-early-access-1203083983/)

I was about to post this! You know the funny thing is, I backed Session and hated it's controls but gave it another try this month and finally started to enjoy it, and now this game comes out. I was aware of this game too however but had no idea it would be out so soon and it looks great for early access! I'm excited :)

By the way I could have sworn Koston was attached to this project? Didn't they have a video with him before or was that another game?

different game! that was True Skate: Big Screen, which was supposed to be the console/pc version of the mobile app True Skate. Nothing ever came of that, at least there hasn't been any public updates on the development in the last like two years.

Post by: swordtechnique on December 19, 2018, 07:21:35 AM
I've been playing it for the last hour or so.  Needs some work of course (still early access) but I'm liking it quite a bit. It's definitely better than Session(as it is now) imo. You can control how your tricks look more and it's also a lot smoother.

the fact that blunts and noseblunts look "bad" is a good thing in a way. it makes me hope that you can tweak how all of this look which is exciting.

BUT is it possible to get a good looking blunt ?

Skater XL is on PC, but for console I've been using my Elgato Game Capture HD for years already, and for it being an old model it still works well. I see they go for around $100 on Ebay unless you wanna buy the newer one for $150

All these games need to up the gravity or fall speed or something.  I would like to play a game where the get on a ledge isn't always a guarantee, maybe you'd have to get the snap just right or something.  Overall looks really cool though.

this game has sort of low popped tricks when you only use one analog stick to bend down, which will let you get just high enough for those knee high ledges, but not always when popped lazy. they are also useful to do wallies on jersey barriers.

You're also able to set the pop levels lower to make it more realistic.

When I first saw clips I thought the character model looked kind of goofy and the tricks didn't look good. But I'm actually kind of blown away by how realistic and fun this game is when you get the hang of it.

Here's some clips of me messing around

Itís really fun! And itís all physics based and no ledge magnetism so if you donít line up/pop/tweak exactly right the grinds will look different. Kind of like in real life. Makes it challenging but super rewarding when you get a perfect lock in.

I tried to go for an early-mid 2000's skater with the 2002 supreme dunks and a mccrank girl board from 2004

I think for playing this game a mid-range PC should be sufficient. Building one of these is possible with 500$-800$. You can look at some example builds following this link : https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/

you may need to uninstall the game and all mods, reinstall sxl, then start by putting in hondunes and the maps, then install the shred menu. i know its pretty specific order but i had the same problem, that way worked for me and everyone else thats had that issue.

If you have a console and your computer has a relatively modern cpu, sell the console and get a budget graphics card for a couple hundred bucks. Youíll be able to run most modern games on medium at the very least. Free online, cheaper games, and itís also a workstation if you do editing and whatnot. If you game a fair amount, even a super budget pc is a great experience. Sorry I donít have a rec for a map haha

I'm thinking about making an attempt at it, I already play the game a bunch anyways so this is a good excuse to record some more tricks. The only bummer is there's a 'no copyright' rule for the music you use.

I havenít played this, but they are doing a contest for this game to like make a video part. They talked about it on the recent 9club experience around the 31 minute mark if anyone is into it.. hmmm nice bike?
[close]

I'm thinking about making an attempt at it, I already play the game a bunch anyways so this is a good excuse to record some more tricks. The only bummer is there's a 'no copyright' rule for the music you use.
I canít get the replay editor mod to work with hondune map importer? Are you using it/ can you give me a link for the version you downloaded?

I honestly really hope the devs donít just take the money and flunk the project with all the mods out at this point. Making video games is not easy, but isnít that the whole point? In all honesty, most mods suck ass and I would wanna see more official content coming out soon. Otherwise, I canít really justify paying more than 5 dollars for the game.

I think they will keep going. Mod's are cool but the real money in games is the console crowd. That's their biggest audience. Building a full game that can move units in the xbox and ps4 environment is what I think they are after. This whole pc early access seems like a marketing tool for the eventual real full release. I hope I'm right.

I installed it awhile ago so it must be an older version by now, perhaps you forgot to also install the shred menu? I made that mistake as well before but once I installed the shred menu the replay editor worked fine. https://github.com/DanielKIWI/SkaterXL-Modding

If they do, I reckon the mod community will just take it over.  Doubt it though, this game is money in the bank when it hits consoles fully loaded.  I'd kill to play this on PS4 with locked down frame rate & tonnes of real spots.  Looking forward to them really nailing the flow & control too, just hope they're going to put time into putting life into the animations & movement.  That's the true next generation of skating games, is a fluid & loose control of the skater that can flow in and out of tricks right.  This and session still feel so rigid.

Liked the awkward hand touch on the philly gap to rail blunt

I was just about to share this here. I haven't owned a Nintendo console in decades but I'd consider getting a Switch solely for Skater XL. I play it all the time on PC and now to be able to play it on the go is a dream come true.

If Skater XL hits Xbox One thatíll be a must-cop for me. I still play Skate 3 on pretty much a nightly basis and Iím sick of all the spots; I always just end up building skateparks on there and shit.

I don't want to buy a console only for this game. My friend has a PS4 he says he can give me or at least let me borrow for a while because I still want to play Red Dead Redemption, GTAV and I really want to (re)play the Shadow of the Colossus remake and The Last Guardian.

Is there any reason to buy xbox other than to play Skater XL? I don't have a ton of time or money to play games, but it is something I like to do on rain days.

Did they replace the New York map with the LA courthouse spot? The PlayStation article only said stuff about a west coast map. Kinda bummed if so. Iím still gonna buy it tho

ďThis creativity in reinventing real-world environments is a big part of skateboarding and the final release of Skater XL will contain several real-world locations based on iconic skate spots from California and the West Coast.Ē

session. is the one with the new york level. skater xl always had the courthouse since release and since last update that was what, half a year ago they have this one skatepark. session. has two indoor parks you can enter within the level or through the menu.

you can get custom levels modeled after new york for skater xl though afaik.

I'm sold on Skater XL after seeing these night clips starting around 3:15.
Also, the nollie bs flip at 1:15 looks almost real.

I had heard people saying that Skater XL has a great filming feature, but I hadn't seen anyone use it well.

Haven't had a chance to play skater XL in a while and never tried session.   
Skater XL seems to have gone through a lot of updates in animations which is good, they're always tweaking how tricks look. 
Session still looks better graphics wise but they still haven't changed much in terms of what turns me off the games.  Grinds still lock in all stiff and the pushing/trick animations still look stiff and ugly.  Doesn't make me want to play it at all.

I hope this gets released while I'm still "working from home" and can only spend about 1hour a day skating on the shitty asphalt/gravel driveway in the back of my apartment. Filling some time with simulated skating could help a lot with the boredom.

Session is really getting good, but neither have any real weight or speed to it. Until I can throw my weight into something, like a turn, carve, slappy, wallride, landings etc it's not really a skateboarding game, it's a trick game.  Still fun, but I really want the weight to affect the game, as it's a huge part of skateboarding.

This game also isn't graphically insane compared to Session. Control scheme is the same though. I've been playing SXL more cause of the mods. And your skater doesn't operate like a tank.

Now you can browse servers and the animations for other players don't look as terrible as before and you can make out what tricks they've done.

the LA map will be for the release in june i'm pretty sure. right now the two "official" maps are the courthouse and some california skatepark (i'm sure it's a well known one? i feel like ive seen feedback_ts critique clips from it before) but the modding community is great and the devs have embraced it to the point where the mod map importer is built into the beta.

Same, had the default look for awhile until this week. Something else I've noticed is when in multiplayer the game actually displays what textures other players are wearing which is pretty neat. I joined a server yesterday and some guy's were arguing over sports team apparel.

Nice! It seems like July 7th is the release date.

Since quarantine started I've been playing the Steam early access version more and have really gotten accustomed to the controls. Still learning some nuances every day.

The mobile Skater game is also very good once you get used to the controls. Stoked for them on the upcoming release.

Iíd like to retract anything I may have said earlier.
A friend live-streamed his XL session and made me give the game another try. I installed go-to mods and literally cannot stop playing.

I just bought this game on PC. Its terrible? What am I doing wrong? I cant even play tutorials. Session works alot better.
weird. there's definitely a learning curve, but i walked away with better impressions from my first playthrough with skater XL than with session. I'll have to give session another try. I think the barrier to entry for Skater XL is much more accommodating. And i think the stock animations on Skater XL are much easier on the eyes than Session.

what controller are you using? i noticed when i played with a Hori Switch Pro controller, the analog stick calibration was way off from what my regular xbox 360 controller does.

Yeah itís dogshit until you get some mods going.

If session wasnít so glitchy itíd bury this game.
Really? which mods are you using or recommend?

I just downloaded maps and have been happy wasting a lot of time just playing through them. I have the mod manager setup but haven't downloaded any yet.

There's a new update to skaterXL, you can do pop-outs (more like nudges) out of grinds which also lets you roll into transition.  They also updated switch and fakie animations so you don't look backwards anymore. 

Base game still has floaty physics and not all the animations are smooth yet but I'm happy with what the devs are focusing on fixing up and adding.

You can only play this game with a controller.  Console controls probably wonít change.  Session, the other skate game had an option for EA skate controls

Ive played the early access for about 20 hours or so and I love it. Much more difficult than skate but very satisfying to land stuff and you can be much more nuanced with how you flip your tricks

Basically you have one stick to pop/scoop one leg and another stick to flick. You can kinda turn with the sticks but you mostly turn (and rotate your body) with the triggers. Grinds are similar compared to skate thereís just the added complexity of using two sticks to lean/position your grinds instead of one.

Turning with the triggers had me skeptical but it actually works out pretty well overall. Itís a more evolved, more difficult control scheme but once your unlearn your muscle memory from playing skate you start to appreciate the amount of control you have

Sounds great to me. Can't wait to be filming realistic profiles like I used to back in all three parts of EA skate.
Still deciding if I should get it on PS4 of Switch though.

new update is pretty good. i switched back from session since i got a bit bored by it and it's cool to skate the miniramp and learn backlips on it. controls have been tweaked a bit since the last time i played and i still think manuals still look and feel worse than in session imo but it's fun and looks promising for the full release.

You can in the full release on July 7th. For the current beta it's just a couple clothing options unless you wanna mess with PC mods, where you can do just about anything, but takes work to get set up.

Thanks a lot for the response and vid. Iím console / handheld only so Iíll just be playing the PS4 full release.

At least that vid showed one female character although she was dressed rather generically. Iím hoping there are decent options for customisation all around and not just different logos on a handful of hoodies.

Indeed looking rough. Whoever's playing doesn't do too great of a job making it look interesting either. Bummed that the initial Switch trailer must have been from the PC build. I'll definitely get it though since it'll still be the best handheld skate game (i hope?)

I can live with the terrible textures, although I do hope they improve them, but as long as the gameplay itself feels the same as the PC version I'd be happy.

I preordered.  Really like the new school map, and I have a feeling that there will be several more updates to fine-tune the gameplay.

Only thing that I think Session has on it is impossibles.  Would also love to see no-comply's and boneless' and other street plants.

I've been playing it for the last hour or so.  Needs some work of course (still early access) but I'm liking it quite a bit. It's definitely better than Session(as it is now) imo. You can control how your tricks look more and it's also a lot smoother.
Can you pick up your board and walk around
 Or is it like Skate 1?

not yet, think this will evt be in the full release. you can do that in session though.

i've been coming back to skater xl after playing a ton of session. i have like 150 hours in each game and that is just from playing in 15-20 min bursts. i play these games while waiting for dinner to be done or something like that.

i can't even decide which one i like more. i can't play both at the same time though, fucks up my muscle memory. i need to adjust to the controls everytime i switch. just steering/turning sucks in both games though, which is a shame. i'd also like some force feedback from different grounds and grinds and slides.

What all these skate gameís should have as an option is skate controls or their own controls.

As far as the new controls it seems very robotic and nonlinear when in comparison to skate controls the turning part bums me out.

I dont think you need the mod manager anymore if you switch to the beta version of the game. I could be misunderstanding. But when I switched and got the skater customizer, map selector and all that and didnt need the mod manager anymore.

It looks good but i like the game play of session much much more. in skater xl the board is pretty much glued to your feet unrealistically when you should fall and i can't stand it. It's also pretty easy and not as rewarding as landing tricks in session.

I've always been a game play over graphics type guy though.

Kind of, although I only played for about 40 minutes on my lunch break. It is incredibly fun to try to remember that it isnt Skate and instead a totally different set of controls.

The one thing that is annoying is every time you fall you are placed back to wherever your session marker is.

I never realized that I pulled the stick down slightly off center until this game.  I was doing wild shuvs more than ollies until I consciously adjusted the way I pulled back on the right stick. Its also kind of tough that even when skating switch you have to point the left stick up, instead of back as if you were skating regular.  I had a really tough time figuring out grinds. I cant wait to get back to it.

This game is quite fun so far. Hard as fuck but I like the challenge, reminds me of when Skate first came out. Looks pretty floaty but doesnt feel as floaty while playing. 360 spins look awkward as hell right now.

Soundtrack has a good amount songs from classic skate parts, got me feeling nostalgic. Love the 411vm gear too.

No, you can just kinda 'bump' out by clicking in the stick of the side you want to pop out on.  Feels super cool.

Doesn't bother me at all. You can zip around pretty quick with the spot marker, so running around would just be superfluous.

As people have said, grinding is the hardest part. I can't quite figure out how to crook consistently, and blunts/ noseblunts are stupid hard. I got a sketchy front noseblunt on a handrail, but they're definitely a work in progress.

Wallrides are not a thing at this point, I guess.

Saw Jamal Smith doing some cool stalls on transition in his stream. Next session I'm gonna figure out how that works. My passing attempts at transition stuff have been feeble so far.

It'd be cool if there was more songs, and if you could change the track.

I donít think you can (PS4) and you canít skip songs or choose/negate any playlist. And scratch what I said about the soundtrack earlier, after a couple hours of gameplay I had to mute the music in the settings. Need some Muska Beats.

I still feel like the stick sensitivity is a little too high. Oddly enough itís too low when it come to starting a manual.

Agreed. You gotta dip halfway down to start the manual, and once your in itís locked as you canít possibly scrape. Not trying to compare, but I loved the balance gradient in EA.Skate manuals.


Really wish you could wallride and slappy, I know there are mods for PC but itíd be nice to see it on console. Also would like to see more community maps on console. Also hats make you bald unless youíre Tom Asta, and the baggiest pants in the game are exclusive to Tiago. T-Shirt sleeves are cut pretty high, and there are only 4 skin tones, why not just include a skin tone gradient? My last grievance is that you cant 360 on flat, the spin mechanism starts hella slow.

Pickiness aside, this game is hella fun.

edit: Wish you could no comply, boneless, and early grab. Feel like itíd be a super easy addition to the game, control wise.

Really not feeling the controls, especially having to use the trigger buttons to turn. I have to unlearn everything I learned in Skate, which I mastered.

Rest seems fine, but I have a feeling this game is going to test my patience.

Put a few hours in and did a bunch of challenges. They are good for learning the mechanics. My grind game is a little better.

My biggest annoyance is shuvs weirdly enough. When I want to do 180 I do 360. When I wanna do 360 i do 180. Havenít really worked out the flick to get the one I want.


Digging the maps. Downtown does feel pretty empty though. Allot of empty space.

Just played it for a while at a friend's house. The spots look great but the skating/motion isn't so hot. Not feeling the controls at all.

I'm just gonna wait for SKATE 4 cause' I don't even own a console anyway. Based off my experience tonight I'd say even SKATE 3 is still superior to this.

This game is quite fun so far. Hard as fuck but I like the challenge, reminds me of when Skate first came out. Looks pretty floaty but doesnt feel as floaty while playing. 360 spins look awkward as hell right now.

Soundtrack has a good amount songs from classic skate parts, got me feeling nostalgic. Love the 411vm gear too.
Had to go back and watch Janoskis Transworld part because of the soundtrack.

For those who donít know already- to revert you have to either point the two analog sticks toward each other or opposite one another and hold R2 or L2 (ps4) depending on which way you want to revert.

Surprised they didnít teach that in the tutorial since I find that pretty essential in a skateboard video game.

This game is fucking amazing. You have to really work your ass off to get a decent trick but it's all possible to do almost anything in a good looking way. I played skate 3 religiously but the tricks always looked the same. I did 10 different switch lipslides on the Jkwon handrail and they all had different and realistic styles to them. Feels like relearning Skate all over again but 1000x harder, easy to lose your mind trying shit

Kinda getting used to the controls, had some pretty good tricks this morning. My back smiths and nollie crooks are looking real good.

Still... having to use the trigger buttons to turn pisses me off.

Also I wish the create-a-skater was more detailed.

I feel like this is a work in progress and patches will be available in the future.

I like it more than I did yesterday.

This is the biggest adjustment for me as well though it does seem like the only decent option given the control scheme of each stick being a foot

Picked it up as well. Might as well throw some money at those developers that spend so much time making this game. But it's very much a sim game. On one side, you have THPS and what used to be the other side would be SKATE. Now Skate XL just sent the bench mark on how sim you can get. Performing tricks and doing stuff just take so much time (for now) but even like SKATE, I am sure everyone is going to get the flow of things.

Really? I only played for a bit but I'd say Skate 3's skating was more realistic, hands down. This one has you clearing Wallenberg with 2 lazy pushes while you do a 720 double hardflip.

That being said - the 3 of us only played for an hour and not one of us did a simple, clean ollie. Hard to make a final call on anything without getting comfortable with the controls.

I've been playing Skater XL since it's launch on Steam, it was frustrating for about the first week or two but afterwards it became easy. It just requires a little patience at first. All the amazing edits players have put out really showcase what's possible once you get a hang of the controls.

I prefer Skater XL over Session but I'm glad I supported and own both games because having to wait an entire decade for a big company like EA to announce a new Skate game is ridiculous.

Itís arguably more realistic that it lets you try any trick rather than confine you to 180/360 rotations. I do wish Wallenburg was a lil more challenging though.

This game is dope. I only played it for about 30 mins as I drank my coffee this morning, but I definitely had a real "oh shit" moment when I realized that you can shift the the position of your front foot on the board to do a "high" ollie. That made me kinda get the whole thing right then an there.

Out of boredom I read a few reviews people posted online on google or whatever and a lot of people are complaining that there's no story, or challenges, or tasks, or all that other shit. Or that the menus are too bare bones. Or that there's not enough gear to customize the skaters. Or that the world isn't "alive" because there's no cars or pedestrians or other bullshit.

Who cares about all of that?

I'm so fucking glad I don't need to listen to Reda's stupid commentary all the time.

I'm glad I don't have to race down a stupid ditch. Or do ridiculous hall of meat challenges.

I'm glad I don't get hit by a car when I try a trick or some stupid idiotic NPC is in the way of a ledge I want to get to.

Tony Hawk and Skate have all the big name skaters and brands. Who cares, it's not important. These guys got what they could for gear, and I like the 4 skaters in this game a lot. Tiago and Westgate are 2 of my favorites of all time, and I hope they get paid for this. And those other 2 guys are pretty good too.

This game reminds me of Minecraft, y'know, the most popular video game (maybe) of all time, ever heard of it? There's no menu, no tutorial, the game just starts and doesn't tell you what to do. And it's super fun. Use your fucking brain, what a concept.

The game I just finished before I got this was GTA V, and you know what?, that game sucks. It cost $140 million to make all those "cool" menus. And to make every single one of the 600+ vehicles customizable. The story is boring. The voice acting is pretty good, I'll give it that, but it's not really important to the game play. And it takes forever to play the fucking thing. If I never play a game that takes me 30+ hours to play through again, I'll be happy.

Granted, just before that, I played Horizon Zero Dawn for 80+ hours and loved every minute of it, but that's because the game was fun.

Skater XL is fun. "Here's a skateboard, use your brain and figure it out". That's cool.

I haven't bought a game on launch day since maybe Final Fantasy VII, the original playstation version, but I knew I had to get this right away.

And I hope the developers get a lot of people buying this game. To make anything independent of big bullshit companies these days is difficult, and I gotta say, these guys must love skateboarding and must be pretty fucking smart to make a video game, so, yeah, sure I'll give them $40, no problem.

I have a feeling they'll add more in time, but even if they don't, fine. Maybe they'll all move onto bigger and better things after, and good for them.

Great independent game, this is what skating is about, DIY, fucking love it.

Maybe rotation was the wrong word, as you can spin however many times you want in Skate.

But a shuv for example, in Skate you can only do a shuv or a 360 shuv, which is limiting. Not that you see people flinging 540 flips irl too often (probably because itís ugly), but it is more than possible.

I got it yesterday and have put about 3 hours in since.  Flip tricks are great, and are making more and more sense to me.

I don't know if it's because I was so used to Skate 3, and tried doing everything Mach 3 all the time, but the grinds are really giving me the business as others have noted.  Enjoying it so far save for the limited music, and lack of Wallrides and no complies.  The team behind it seems super passionate about skating so I think we'll get more.

It does suck though that I feel like a lot of brands blackballed this game.  I'd love more customization options.

The big difference between Skate 3 and Skater XL is that the Skate series tricks were all preprogrammed and you just used the controller to activate them where Skater XL is actually physics based and you're simply controlling the feet and manipulating the board. On paper that might not sound like much of a difference but it gives you much greater control on how you manipulate the board and is more realistic, even though maybe the speed/gap clearance settings aren't.

Played it for a couple of hours, and it's great if you get the hang of it. Hardest part is unlearning steering with the left stick.

It does feel pretty empty tho. Would have liked some pedestrians of at least have the challenge trick locations visualized/marked in free skate, just so there's some movement.

Also, whoever came up with the skate 40,000 kilometer trophy can take a mean shinner. Those aren't even funny in racing games.

That made me kinda get the whole thing right then an there.

Out of boredom I read a few reviews people posted online on google or whatever and a lot of people are complaining that there's no story, or challenges, or tasks, or all that other shit. Or that the menus are too bare bones. Or that there's not enough gear to customize the skaters. Or that the world isn't "alive" because there's no cars or pedestrians or other bullshit.

Who cares about all of that?

I'm so fucking glad I don't need to listen to Reda's stupid commentary all the time.

I'm glad I don't have to race down a stupid ditch. Or do ridiculous hall of meat challenges.

I'm glad I don't get hit by a car when I try a trick or some stupid idiotic NPC is in the way of a ledge I want to get to.

Tony Hawk and Skate have all the big name skaters and brands. Who cares, it's not important. These guys got what they could for gear, and I like the 4 skaters in this game a lot. Tiago and Westgate are 2 of my favorites of all time, and I hope they get paid for this. And those other 2 guys are pretty good too.

This game reminds me of Minecraft, y'know, the most popular video game (maybe) of all time, ever heard of it? There's no menu, no tutorial, the game just starts and doesn't tell you what to do. And it's super fun. Use your fucking brain, what a concept.

The game I just finished before I got this was GTA V, and you know what?, that game sucks. It cost $140 million to make all those "cool" menus. And to make every single one of the 600+ vehicles customizable. The story is boring. The voice acting is pretty good, I'll give it that, but it's not really important to the game play. And it takes forever to play the fucking thing. If I never play a game that takes me 30+ hours to play through again, I'll be happy.

Granted, just before that, I played Horizon Zero Dawn for 80+ hours and loved every minute of it, but that's because the game was fun.

Skater XL is fun. "Here's a skateboard, use your brain and figure it out". That's cool.

I haven't bought a game on launch day since maybe Final Fantasy VII, the original playstation version, but I knew I had to get this right away.

And I hope the developers get a lot of people buying this game. To make anything independent of big bullshit companies these days is difficult, and I gotta say, these guys must love skateboarding and must be pretty fucking smart to make a video game, so, yeah, sure I'll give them $40, no problem.

I have a feeling they'll add more in time, but even if they don't, fine. Maybe they'll all move onto bigger and better things after, and good for them.

Great independent game, this is what skating is about, DIY, fucking love it.

Iím the same everytime I replay skate 3 Iím irritated by getting hit by cars and people in the way of ledges...I also didnít enjoy gta5. I waited till the game was 60% off before I got it.  Only game I bought on launch and finished it on platinum status was that New spider man ...itís what a immersive game feels like to me

Then turn off pedestrians and traffic. Problem solved.

Did not know I could do that ...shit

.

It does suck though that I feel like a lot of brands blackballed this game.  I'd love more customization options.
[close]

Curious as to why? Because of contracts with THPS and Skate 4?

I would assume.  It's apples and oranges when you compare an indie developers foray into the genre, vs something like NBA 2K or Live, where they both have deals with Nike, Adidas, etc.

This game is so far from being a full priced product on a console.  I bought the demo on the PC, and i'm really enjoying it but I think it's dogshit to put it on console now, and might bite them in the ass as if i'm playing this on my Playstation & dont give a shit about being part of an alpha build, I dont want this half assed empty world with questionable physics & a general unfinished vibe. 

That said, i'm enjoying the new parks & the best fun is still just fucking around on a ledge, which is great.  Pretty crazy how many grind splines they left out of the game though.  Can't grind curbs, slappies are still a hack job and barely work on anything.  Pretty surprised the gameplay hasn't advanced at all since the beta to the 1.0, and doesn't really fill me with confidence.

And when i'm loading up to ollie I still do a weird half pop shuvit more times than i'd care to admit.  After 30 hours you'd think id have learnt how to keep my sticks straight.

Don't have my own ps4 so I bought it 'for' my girlfriends little brother who is 18 and new to skating. Everytime he gets to play alone I come back and my dude has been transformed into a damn soundcloud rapper. Why did they include so many sweatpants and graphic grip options? Its gross.

Gameplay wise, I got the hang of it quick after doing challenges. Pretty bummed on the lack of diversity, its really just a collection of handrails. Annoying you cant really do grind trick grind combos. The transition doesnt work at all especially cause you are forced to do a trick out of any coping trick. The board flipping is too much, the kid keeps being like 'look what i did!' and it'll be a 540 inward heelflip 5050 nollie 360 hardflip out. I now am longing for an update and or the new skate game.

If you guys haven't already done them I highly recommend doing the challenges, did them last night and it taught me a ton of shit that the tutorial doesn't, mostly how to do 'high ollies' and how you can use that any time you pop into any trick from any stance.
Title: Re: New Skate Game! Skater XL
Post by: Murge on July 30, 2020, 07:16:51 AM
Iíve got a few hours in on it now. So far the grinds are hard as fuck. Like I think I figure crooks out and itís a willy or losi. Smiths and feebles are just by chance. It seems. Even a 50/50 is hard. Definitely need a grind tutorial.
But Iím having a lot of fun. Itís been fun finding spots and making a trick look good at the spot. Flip tricks arenít as hard as I expected them. I still steer with the left stick. The super Ollie thing is kinda cool just wish it didnít make stuff look so floaty.

I donít understand how to trim and edit clips. I found the buttons that say trim etc but when I do I still have the entire video.

It kinda is a bummer you donít have to hold manuals and grinds once your in you donít have to balance. I ollied off this huge thing on the la map and it landed fine I was expecting there to be like impact like skate where you may wreck or speed has to be on point to carry out the land.  It kinda makes doing gnar shit not gnarly. Cause youíll land that big Ollie and look floaty all the way down. Big rails? No need to balance. Ollie over the staples hubba no problem. I wish there was an option to turn gravity up a bit. Like Make the staples hubba harder. Make landing a big drop work like speed and landing straight important or something. Because itís a dope sim then goes full on tony hawk with anything gnar. So tech stuff is the only thing thatís kinda difficult.  I mean game is fun I just wished it made drops slightly hard like in skate. Also if I fall off my board let me just start where I fell instead of teleporting to the marker. I marked it for a reason if I wanna go back Iíll hit the up button

But respect to skate xl for making a game when EA didnít do shit for a decade aside ignore fans.

I also like just cruising around skating shit itís what I did in skate itís just more difficult now which is cool.

I hope this doesn't get flagged for the background music but I filmed a couple lines at a ledge in the first level.

After spending significant time playing this, I'm satisfied with my purchase. I came in with low exceptions, knowing this is a game made by a small studio, and I think Easy Day did a decent job. It's frustrating at times (but then again so is skateboarding in real life), the graphics are kinda PS3-ish, the soundtrack gets old fast to the point where you just mute it, the customization sucks, I can't flip the spitfire wheels graphics in, etc, but the controls are so much deeper than any skateboarding game before it. It truly is the most hardcore skateboard sim to date, so much that it's going to turn away the casual skateboard fan, but luckily they have THPS 1+2 for that. The game is hard, but rewarding. It feels like those Beagle tapes videos seeing guys like Reynolds or Bryan Herman struggling with a trick for hours until they finally get that one make.

I waited 10 years for a skateboarding game after Skate 3, and this will hold me over until Skate 4, which I'm sure is at least 3 years away.

Less hair options but the hair stays if you put a hat over it unlike the men who go bald when you put a cap on them.

I think this game is super fun. Learning the controls makes me feel like I'm learning to write with my non-dominant hand, and while it's infuriating, I keep coming back to it because I know that I can do it. After playing it for a couple hours, coming back the next day feels exponentially easier. It just takes time for the muscle memory to set in, then it gets really fun. The clip editing is wonky at first but once you understand how the keyframes work, it makes things much more manageable. My brother in law and I have been filming our TV's, sending each other clips at random times throughout the day, it's been fun and will take the place of the much needed multiplayer for now....

Anybody having this problem? -

I tried saving a couple of clips and then after a while I couldnít view them anymore and it says not enough storage space (which is bullshit because I checked my ps4 storage and there is plenty of storage left plus an external hard drive.) I then restarted the game and my ďsaved characterĒ went back to the original male default skater.

same here! ps4
[close]

Iím so bummed. It took me like a half hour to make this one clip after getting the perfect angle and figuring out the key frames etc lol. I even tried uninstalling it and installing it again and still doesnít work.

somehow mine fixed itself! i hope the same for you.

ALSO - those clips! dudes...my gf is gonna be pissed at me after dinner lol

I played with it last night. Trying to make a character for my girlfriend.

Thereís less options for tops but thereís a decent amount.

Skin tones are the same.

Less hair options but the hair stays if you put a hat over it unlike the men who go bald when you put a cap on them.

Pants are where itís really lacking. Theyíre all tight and only like 3-4 colors. My girlfriend doesnít wear tight clothes so she will not be happy.

Thanks to you all that addressed my question.
If a game offers character customisation I always hope for variety, but it's not a deal breaker.
 I'll be playing on PS4 if anything but the more I'm hearing about the game and  mods is making me wish I had a gaming rig.

Cant get off the board, but there is a spawn point where you can mark to any point in the map and spawn in that specific spot and direction.

HOLY SHIT did you guys know that you can hit L1 or R1 on the Maps menu and there is a user created section? I'm only seeing 3 so far but wow what a discovery.
Yeah these were 3 popular community made maps that they announced to be packaged into the game. If you're on PC you can easily download user made maps to play. Hope they figure a way to bring this to console soon.

Loving the game. Been playing the early access for awhile so this official release just feels like more of the same but now they brought the pros, official maps and some music tracks.

Double dipped and bought it for PS4 ($33 on Amazon and Walmart today). Don't usually buy games at launch but if I'm gonna support some devs it should definitely be these guys. According to Steam I've sunk more than 100hrs into the game and will easily sink hundreds more. Can't wait for a portable Switch release. Expecting it to be of lower quality but will be sick to play it anywhere anytime.

Looks like the reviews have come in and they are middling. Hope that doesn't hurt them too much. It's kind of sick to hear in reviews people's experiences struggling with the controls, then slowly progressing in the same spirit as real skating. Sounds like people are "getting" it which is a success in my book. Too bad they're lacking the content for higher review scores.

Has anyone played the phone game Skater? They had a good mechanic where you can save your lines and upload them as challenges (similar to the built in challenges/tutorials they built into this game). For the mobile game, playing challenges was required to unlock more maps which helped get a better feel for the game. And creating challenges was a good way for showing off and creating content for others. Really hope they build that into this game at some point.

Sick edits. Did you guys know you can get a faster spin by prewinding? While you're crouched down for a high pop using both sticks just hold down one of the rotation triggers and they'll wind up. Let's you spin faster and has a different animation.

Try prewinding your spin. With both sticks down hold down the trigger for spinning. You'll see your skater wind up. That will make you spin faster. If you still need more rotation learn how to revert the landing.

I think you'll still turn with only one stick down. But when you have both sticks down for a high pop and hold the trigger, they'll wind up for a faster spin. You'll get used to it over time when muscle memory starts kicking in. Awkward at first for sure. Took me a while to spin using triggers. EA skate didn't do that at all. It's to play EA skate after playing XL for a long time.

I almost broke down today and said fuck this and just plugged in skate but held strong. I donít want to ruin my muscle memory progress so far. I will say it is VERY satisfying landing a trick perfect and with style in this game, it just takes as long as actually doing it on a skateboard in real life

Agreed having to do a 720 shove it is whack but theyíre probably just trying to get the younger market in for revenue. If that leads to income which makes the game getting better with updates iíll let it slide

Post by: SlapRhaters on August 01, 2020, 08:51:03 PM
Guys this is important and i can't stress this enough.

Learn the advanced way to do each trick, if your goofie and you just flick down and right to do a kickflip it's not going to look realistic as the board just sucks to the feet without a real catch. If you want a realistic kickflip you need to flick down then bottom right, then instantly hold the rs top right while holding the left stick down Then click Ls in to catch the board at the right moment.

If you do this the board will bone itself out so that it actually hits the catching foot instead of sucking to your feet. holding ls down isn't needed BUT if you don't do it your foot will morph through the board.


Now that's just kickflips, every trick has as advanced way you can do it to reach 100% realism, i'm not your dad though so figure the rest out on your own and BTW 99% of people's clips look unrealistic because they aren't doing this stuff. If you want props from me you better find out how to do this shit proper. Especially you little cum bags that hate on Nyjah for having no style, every one of you who doesn't do the tricks the advanced way are NYJAH.

On the Easy Day High map there's a road on the left side of the map, at the end of the road turn right and there should be a long handrail with a "Go Tigers" banner above it, Leap Of Faith is in that same area opposite of the handrail.

Decided to buy it expecting barebones exp with a deep trick / style / gameplay system and have gotten exactly what I expect. Slightly dissatisfied with the character customisation- literally 3 pairs of jeans in the same style and the exact same fit T-Shirt with different logos, no variation.

I'm glad I supported this studio by paying full welly and I really hope there is more coming to console with updates because the mechanics of this game are fantastic. You can tell these guys are skaters or at least have huge input from skaters because at its core it allows for unique ways of doing tricks.
A particular moment of joy came when doing two different styles of fakie tre on flat - one with back foot catch but no yo'd out, the second with my skater seeming to jump higher, tucking her feet to allow the board to rotate more vertically, caught differently to the first.
It's SO much fun nailing tricks in varying styles.

I just hope it gets expanded over time with maps (as a minimum) and additional features on console.

If you're a skateboarder you'll probably get as much joy as I have from it because no other skating game has really done what this is doing. I could see people perfecting specific pros style and recreating video parts like we did with skate, but the tricks actually resembling the skater in question.


Quick fire thoughts-

- I played skate 3 for two hours before playing this. This was both advantageous and a detriment.

- Loading to your marker is instantly done, unlike Skate 3 on PS3. This feels so much better.

- I didn't notice two hours going past while first playing.

-The style aspect is just delightful. Catching a fake flip with the back foot hanging off and skater looking distinctly fakie.

- Day one patch on PS4 is nearly as big as the game (just shy of 8GB compared to +11GB)

- I could have printed better quality box art.

-OST has some skate vid tracks - Stefan from Subtleties, JJ Mindfield

The challenges especially helped with ledge/rail tricks.

Though I dunno if anyone else has had this experience, but a lot of the advanced challenges feel WAY too picky. I did one where a line ends with a front blunt 270 out on a flatbar and I did it BETTER than the demo clip but they didn't count it. I heard for certain tricks that they only count it if you actually revert but the one that was a "success" was done the same way just slightly under rotated lol.

I'm goofy foot so I haven't touched those whack ass challenges (https://www.thecoli.com/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/mjlol.png)

Best way to learn is to watch youtubers and PRACTICE. Also, it's easy to flick your tricks timing the same pace you do in skate. DON'T do that. if you want crispy Tre's, hardflips, etc. get used to scooping one stick at a certain speed and flicking with another. Remember there are no canned animations but once you get the muscle memory down, you can pretty much just LOOK at your board and intuitively control it.


If you wanna reverts, powerslides, or just any kind of 90 degree twist, point your sticks <--> or -><-. Use the triggers to spin with it. You can do smiths and feebles this way too if you figure out the little nuances tweaks and approach towards the rail/ledge

Blunts/Noseblunts are done by approaching at the correct angle/trajectory, ollie, turn about 90 degrees, the point both sticks down or up depending on stance/trick

Got it on PC, game is dope when you dwell into all the different mods and custom gear. You can also easily make your own gear using blank gear templates and using paint/photoshop. Smith grinds be looking a little awkward though.

The developers have been very good at integrating mod content (they even included three modder maps in the console version) so I believe they will add more features from pc. I hope you guys get to adjust stats because the game is on another level with custom physics and manual catch. Much more rewarding.

Good shit man. That fakie tre was great. didn't even think to film from up there. I love how people have a unique style on the game. definitely carries it compared to any other skate game ever made.

I made another little edit just to dick around. Need better camera mod options before I start stacking clips for some sort of full length part.

Raw footage turning up gravity and using manual catch with mods. Hopefully they implement some of these features for consoles cause the vanilla version is unplayable for me.

Really liked that filming. I need that squares map back. Not sure if it works or not with the new version of the game.

About 2 hours in and I actually like this a lot better than Session. It just feels a lot better to land tricks and the maps we get straight from launch on Xbox are better than Session's. And the gameplay is a lot more solid. I know it's kinda unfair to compare them being Session is on like version 0.0.5? I think. And SXL is on build 1.0 if I'm not mistaken. And the filming is easily the best out of any skateboarding game. It's probably the most fun part of the game for me right now.

Just found out you can also do anti flips so that's pretty fucking cool.

Yea I dunno about sessions but I definitely like the controls better and the fact that the consol levels are small is nice because you think more like a skater finding dope lines in cramp areas

session def felt more true to skating at first...until i discovered all the little ways you can make your tricks look personalized in SXL. The whole vibe and image is definitely cooler in session tho. Pluse my local shop no comply is featured in session which is pretty cool.

The lack of canned animations are what I think makes it special. Session just looks so stiff and there's no real style to the skating. I haven't played it since it was in super early release though. The maps look great, but it's just so stiff and lacks the fluidity of skater xl.

This took me so long to do. I've been looking for a place to do a nose slide pop out.

I wish you could change the controls around on console. Session lets you change so much, down to the orientation of your flick direction for flipping out of tricks. Manual catch is just essential tbh. I spend more time in XL trying to land a trick in the right way, as opposed to at all. It's a cool diversion, but I feel like Session's gonna go beyond skater xl gameplay-wise. XL feels really good though, like playing skate 1 for the first time again

this is very true also. it's very forgiving with the landing and catching but it would be very frustrating for new players otherwise, i can see why they've gone this direction but it would have been nice to make it an option, kinda like difficulty settings idk

This. In XL, a switch flip is the same input as a nollie flip, just rolling switch instead. I prefer this scheme. Session is promising, but as of right now, there is only one way to make a trick look. I agree that manual catch is the way to go. That's how I play my modded SXL. Hopefully the devs smell the coffee and implement the option in the console version.

I think people woulda have just preferred that switch was like Skate, where the inputs are exactly the same just the sticks are switched, but the way the sticks are switched and inverted in Skater XL accurately recreates the awkwardness of skating switch.

When I first tried skating switch IRL I felt like a baby giraffe trying to walk for the first time. In Skater XL, I had that similar feeling when I was trying to string a line together switch.

I ran into this on back 5-0 front 180's, and it honestly took a while to get it to where I was satisfied. Get into the grind, start turning with the shoulder button before you reach the end of the hubba (or whatever you're doing it on). When you are about to land, move both sticks to the outside like you're doing a fs powerslide. This will make you revert the last of the front 180 out and it'll look a lot more natural than straight ollieing out of it. Same principles should apply for front 5-0 back 180 out, just reversed, and put the sticks towards the middle like you're doing a bs powerslide.

Sounds like you're powersliding too early. Make sure you're fully dismounted before moving the sticks to powerslide out.

Ye, just donít release the joystick at the end of the ledge, release it when youíre in the air. You can also do the powerslide move to turn 90 degrees if youíre getting out of a boardslide for example.

Got this for Xbox One last night. Started to get hang of it today. Last night I was ready to throw my console out the window.  It was like watching two blind guys play pattycake seeing me try to grind a rail or ledge without it being a Willy grind.

Must of been the coffee cause I woke up this morning and shit clicked after looking at some tips. Still struggling with blunt slides. But learning reverts and catching tricks with the right foot makes everything look much better.

Checkpoints are cool but I think the game would flow better if you started off where you last fell instead off being spawned back to your last checkpoint.

Started playing today after a week or so with session. Feels way too easy in comparison, like it's hard to actually bail (I can see some people would prefer that) but the tricks feel less rewarding to me. I like XLs revert system and the spins feel more responsive. The fact you can style tricks is great too but I think I prefer session overall.

Not being able to pump puts a huge dent on transition skating. It seems like you should be able to (like when you slide the back foot up to crouch without popping), but it doesnít actually pump. Hope to see this in the future.

I feel like the tricks should flip faster in general, and the same goes for the spins. I like the wind up but the 180s and 360s still feel off.

I also kinda wish that ollies and nollies could only be activated by using both sticks, rather than one. I don't know how many times I'm trying to steer only to pop shove and get stuck facing the wrong direction.

Not being able to pump puts a huge dent on transition skating. It seems like you should be able to (like when you slide the back foot up to crouch without popping), but it doesnít actually pump. Hope to see this in the future.

*nevermind I guess that does some pumping

Use both sticks in opposite directions and I think it pumps harder.

I feel like the tricks should flip faster in general, and the same goes for the spins. I like the wind up but the 180s and 360s still feel off.

The mods on pc really solve both of those issues. I played for a while without them, once you can take away the floatiness and make the board flip faster it really is great. I'm imagining they will add some sort of stats adjuster or a hardcore mode or something on console soon enough.

Put together a little edit this morning.

Started playing today after a week or so with session. Feels way too easy in comparison, like it's hard to actually bail (I can see some people would prefer that) but the tricks feel less rewarding to me. I like XLs revert system and the spins feel more responsive. The fact you can style tricks is great too but I think I prefer session overall.
I agree with this, i am literally a better skater IRL then i am on session and just landing a kickflip back tail took me 30 minutes and i was stoked, i hopped on skater xl and my very first try i accidentally did a 360 hardflip back tail 360 shove out, then did the kickflip back tail in a couple more tries.

Now that i've mastered skater xl it's basically just Ea skate and the only way i struggle for tricks or feel any real joy is when i'm doing stuff like 360 flip to hurricane popping into to a switch front feeble and switch 360 flipping out.

Not to mention the grinds, in session they've really mastered the pinch with all grinds, on skater xl the crook pinch is really good but i prefer session for the rest.

 Sounds/graphics and how the board moves during manuals is all better on session as well imo:


With all this said i still enjoy skater xl more purely because it's more polished and it's frustrating playing a super hard game like session when it still has glitches, super hard games shine once there are no glitches and all mistakes are user error.

I canít get past the awful animations in session. Everything looks and feels so stiff. Maps look great though. Iíd probably play it if I couldnít have modded xl gameplay for some reason though.

I also kinda wish that ollies and nollies could only be activated by using both sticks, rather than one. I don't know how many times I'm trying to steer only to pop shove and get stuck facing the wrong direction.

That's because you are steering with the joystick. Steer with the triggers exclusively like the game intends and you will not have this problem.

from what I can tell they added goofy challenges and then just fixed some glitches that I was not experiencing to begin with. saw some people saying the game felt smoother but im not really noticing anything different. didnt stop me from playing for another hour haha

yeah i've popped a few Anti hero and Krooked decks in there, you checked out mod.io?  Mostly dogshit decks as gamers are fuckin' goons but there's some good ones.  if I get time, i'll blast thru a few sick ones.

The no shaped boards thing sucks.  I had shaped boards in an early version, dunno what happened to them.  I had a Cab long dragon with Red slime balls, was fuckin sick as shit.

Also, have they done a cheeky update?  Felt way easier to get into nose and tail slides last night.  Or maybe i'm just fuckin' killing it.

man, the consoles need some kinda mod power or im gonna be over this quicker than i realized.

its great for putting together tricks on ledges, rails, manuals, etc, but its a lot of the same. a lot of similar spots.

its making me realize how in depth the ea skate games were. i understand this is an indie game, but the levels in skate especially the first one felt so alive in comparison and had so many unique spots and ways you could skate them. for example needing to skitch into some spots to have enough speed or taking a hill route. also the feeling of bombing hills was well done in those. you never really feel like youre character has enough weight in this and session

Those hills and just a better sense of momentum would be awesome in this game. Would love to put those reverts to the test. Maybe I'm missing something but is there a way to push harder/faster in this game?

I only have it on console, I bought it on steam hoping I could use it on Nvidia GeForce now, but that didn't pan out so I eventually just got a refund and played session until skater xl came out on PS4. Hopefully with the next update we can get some better decks and some shapes. I loved that session has so much shit I have in real life, Roger shirts and no comply shirts and the heroin curbcrusher and egg decks made me so happy.

I feel like the dudes that made session are full on skate nerds while the dudes that made skater xl are the dudes that tell you how much they used to skate until they got a car.

That being said I really enjoy both and it makes for a great way to pass a rainy day. Fuck, I even bought a switch so I could play skater xl, but that shit got pushed back.

Now whenever I try to open that clip it sort of just freezes and doesn't let me replay the clip no matter what.

game still needs updates pretty bad. transition skating still barely works. it's still fun but i'd take updates on the physics over any fancy customization tools or levels, since these can be modded in easily.

this and session still have one big problem that is just traversing the levels on board is very wonky and unenjoyable. there's also plenty places in the school and la lvls where collision detection sucks and you can't really grind some stuff because of it or the game will think your skater goes up transition and will magnetically change the skaters angle mid air. powerslides are much appreciated and you can do some cool stuff with them, like little 360s over speed bumps, but you come to too hard of a stop even down a hill, and since you still don't really gain any momentum going downhill or into a bank they just make you stop too soon and it doesn't feel like bombing a hill at all. no complies and wallies would be sick too, as would be the ability to early grab off stuff.

tbh the game hasn't changed much at all since a year or so. it plays almost the same since it came into early access and i thought there would be more to it than a lose sandbox with ok physics and missing like 20% of all possible tricks on flat. i feel like they ran into some sort of roadblock about a year ago and spent too much time licensing skaters and do mocap instead of making the game play better.

both these games are a 6-7/10 for me so far. but skater xl is honestly too devoid of actual content and still too unpolished to be fully released imo.

it must be super hard to program the physics right for stuff like wallrides and transition in the context of the respective engines the devs chose or their actual abilities to code. it's actually baffling to me that both games have no way to proper wallie or wallride. as much as i appreciate the games that they do their own thing with the controls, skate 2 at least got all that done more than ten years ago. at this point i have exhausted most tricks i could do in both games but there is nothing to explore and cruising around on the board just sucks and is so glitched out in both games it's a bit frustrating.

I agree, both are nowhere near done. The fact XL claims 1.0 concerns me because I'm not sure how much more they will actually add.

I'm on console so I don't have access to all the mods people are praising. Feels pretty empty for $40 without the ability to access the mod content

yeah i'm ok with having paid 20 quid and i knew i was buying early access with possibility of the whole project failing. i'd never pay 40 for this game in this state, especially not if i can't mod in more content if it is that sparse and rushed on that. granted i played it a lot, but half my playtime is probably consisting of waiting for a pizza to be done and passing the time fucking around in it for ten minute bursts. same with session. i probably rack up an hour of playtime everyday because i play it waiting for coffee to be done or something like that and i do that a few times each day or night. but i get pretty bored after 15 minutes or so. i tried getting into the video editor but it's also glitchy as fuck in terms of collision detection and i find it hard to find nice angles on lines, never mind the fact that its usage is totally obtuse imo.

hope future updates fix and add some things at least before the funds dry up at some point because it's just not skate 4 and i can't see many non skaters getting into this game and buying it with this lack of polish and the bland look.

If the game went for 20, I wouldnít have gotten it...everyone whoís bought video games since the 80s knows that these cost sorta determines how good a game might be...60 is standard for a lot of new games, A new game at 20 reeks of shit

Itís not quite a 20 game probably closer to 35

Post by: Frank on August 19, 2020, 02:56:24 PM
thing is they shouldn't have released it as finished for full price, but stayed in early access some more. but they clearly wanted to stick to the schedule. there's literally nothing in the full release that couldn't be modded in before on pc. it looks slightly nicer in terms of shaders and runs a bit better but that's pretty much it. and you still have to mod the really cool stuff in. for double the price now you get two three glitchy new levels with one having a few famous spots but they are totally lifeless still, one other being a megaramp. animations have changed only subtly and you can choose a few famous skaters as skins for your character or choose clothes and decks that mostly look horrible with a few exceptions. most of the shoes suck, too. so you have to mod it in unless you're on console where this isn't possible.

what is still like beta/ea is basically everything else. basically the same as day one, except you can grab your board, but only if your wheels leave the ground. and you can sort of powerslide which doesn't really work if you want to control your speed. and the skater faces where he goes instead of looking like going fakie when going switch and you have this weird video editor that acts like a ghost, not a real filmer. a lot of stuff in the full release was actually done by modders that are now part of the team. i'm not trying to dunk on the devs. but this game has only seen incremental progress in almost two years.

i still hope it will eventually bloom into a really good game, but i feel like i am having fun because i skate and i make the game work, if i wouldn't skate i probably wouldn't bother with this game because probably wouldn't know what to do and compared to a game of skate it's all a little bit more random control wise, as if you are at the mercy of the level designer to let you grind. as dumb as it is that thps has a grind button, the level designers would at least make sure you could grind what you wanted to grind. in skater xl(and session) there's a lot of spots that look like you are supposed to do a grind but the coding is botched and you can't really do it because you fall through the obstacle or can't lock in or get stuck on texture seams. even if i get the controls down to an artform, the coding in both these games is so shoddy that some spots are almost unskatable, although the level designers clearly put them there to be skated and not just as scenery.

some curbs in skater xl will make you fling full speed ahead at landing after doing a fairly slow grind. or how many grinds look like you actually roll on the curb or how it is hard to just fifty fifty because if your front truck hits the ledge first your character will do a pretend nosegrind or go straight into willy. which is all managable if you try to be more precise, but are things i wished they would have already patched out for the full release. just tons of little annoyances that add up to the game feeling more like it barely makes the sum of its parts but hasn't really made the connection yet.

alright i'm done ranting long ass posts, still hope everyone has fun. this game could be so much more though and my guess is feature creep and then money issues held back development. now they have to sell it for full price so they can work one or two years on making it better because ea pricing won't pay the bills. i actually hope it pays out.

If the game went for 20, I wouldnít have gotten it...everyone whoís bought video games since the 80s knows that these cost sorta determines how good a game might be...60 is standard for a lot of new games, A new game at 20 reeks of shit

Itís not quite a 20 game probably closer to 35

Separate gripe, if they have grimple stix decks why can't I get an eagle deck? Also some shaped decks would be sick, like in session.

yeah i've popped a few Anti hero and Krooked decks in there, you checked out mod.io?  Mostly dogshit decks as gamers are fuckin' goons but there's some good ones.  if I get time, i'll blast thru a few sick ones.

The no shaped boards thing sucks.  I had shaped boards in an early version, dunno what happened to them.  I had a Cab long dragon with Red slime balls, was fuckin sick as shit.


Also, have they done a cheeky update?  Felt way easier to get into nose and tail slides last night.  Or maybe i'm just fuckin' killing it.

I say it time and time again, if you game and need a computer for general purposes, get a pc. A moderate ($600-$700, cheaper if you're willing to hunt down sales for parts) pc can handle current games, video/photo editing, and whatever reasonable uses you might have. Free online play, tons of sales, mods, early access to in development games, etc.  Obviously don't get it just for this game but if you game regularly and could use a desktop pc, its a no brainer. Exclusives and ease of use with a living room tv is the only reason one could want a console. But you can also attach a pc to the tv and more and more exclusives are coming to pc (horizon zero dawn, red dead, etc) so even that's not a great reason. I kinda hate sony and microsoft for their business model so im definitely biased but I can't stress how good it felt to break out of consoles. Sorry for the rant.

my friends and i are doing a little 1 minute part contest(winner gets nothing), but being the only unemployed one i finished this way too ahead of deadline and figured i'd make something else by then instead. also, this is 2 mins.

Does your pc specs match the min specs listed on steam? If you don't want to change out your cpu or graphics, steam is pretty good about refunds.

but $600-$700 is a little outta my range. or at least my justifiable one.

If you have a potato pc already, upgrading only your cpu and graphics card could be an option. Could bring it down to 300-400 range. As someone said before, pcpartpicker is your friend if you want to do some research.

Thanks a lot man. To reveal my cheesiness I found that to be a pretty touching comment, sincerely. I did a tiny bit of AE schooling years ago and got kinda too intimidated to pursue it as a career/sourcing footage can be tough, but this game is kinda relighting the spark to get better at it.
One of the good homies lent me his setup and I grabbed a fisheye, so an IRL video is coming but itís over a year away realistically and itís kinda nice to get in the swing of things instead of scrambling or being overwhelmed when the majority of the clips are in

Bethesda only allowed it cause they found a way to implement paid mods. Bethesda also has a big pull in the industry. Dealing with Sony and Microsoft and mods must be a nightmare and I doubt Easy Day can pull it off. Hopefully they at least make the stats menu mod a part of the game so the wack console physics can be adjusted. Praying for yall.

I can't get the mods to work. I figured out how to get new levels but the scripts don't do anything. Pressing the function keys does nothing. The mod installer says that the files are OK.  Could it be because I have the game stored on a separate drive? All the how to vids seem to keep all of their games on their c: drive.

That being said Hollywood high is my favorite level. So dumb and simple but it is very accurate.

As long as you have Unity Mod Manager directed at the right directory for the game you should be ok. Check the modding discord if you need help and someone should be able to get it sorted. You may also just need to hit the install button on The unity window. After an update sometimes, you have to go back and just tap install again.

very fun for the replay editor and putting together ledge and rail and (to an extent)gaps/stair tricks. the lack of set animations makes it fun to do tricks until you get them to look the way you want.

however, it has quite a ways to go.

even tho i like that they modelled stuff after real spots, they are all stairs, gaps, ledges and rails. pretty much everything feels very intended for you to skate and pretty well anything that isnt, isnt skateable. err... i guess i feel the skate levels had that as well as a design that allowed for skating things that werent intended or not as obvious. for example there are not really any hill spots in xl(i dont think the level sizes would allow it) and youre guy reaches top speed after 3 pushes, which starts to feel kinda limiting.
no pedestrians or moving vehicles kinda make the levels feel like ghost towns(la especially).

i have no regrets paying the 45 clams or whatever it was, but i really like messing with the replay editor and putting together lil clips(yeah, i am nerd). if you do not, im not sure that id recommend it at the price unless they promise new maps.

really good for what it is, but it's essentially 1/2 or 2/3 of a game at its current state without mods. im glad they decided to get it out at this state, but i hope they dont just stop here. i wouldnt mind paying again

but yeah, i went from being super hyped on it and assuming it was a very vast game to getting a little bored and feeling its limitations pretty quick. some of my fellow nerds and i have been doing little contests and have a group chat that keeps the game a little more fun

If anyone is using xl mod, do yourself a favor and turn gravity all the way up and pop force up to counter balance it. Much weightier and satisfying to stomp tricks. Transition also feels better since the gravity helps you not do unintentional stalls or hang up on coping all the time.
Title: Re: New Skate Game! Skater XL
Post by: Dr Waffles on September 04, 2020, 05:18:12 PM

Console player here. I definitely feel like I have gotten $40 out of this game. I mostly play it on break from my online classes as I only get 10-20 minutes between lectures. It has been fun but it is starting to lose its appeal a bit.

New levels would be awesome as would some more stuff to wear/skate. Its interesting that they have lakai in the game but not girl/chocolate?

The next thing I need to learn is 180s to manual. That has been fucking me up how I cannot seem to get that down.

For now, keep posting, motherfuckers. But remember that once I drop this clip you'll know who's the real king of this shit.

Just wanted this below your clip.

Sometimes i have to manually go through and fix audio. It's annoying, but worth it always.

Well by the looks of it, apparently you do, dumb dumb.

You look like you're trying to play the game as if it THPS. I guess that's cool? Looks silly in my opinion.

Also you're in here acting, and boasting that you the best at skating...  and editing... in a video game. Might as well just throw your real board in the trash homie.

Dumbest shit i have ever read on here in a while.
 
Haha, good luck on you're quest on being the best Skater XL, "skater".

Cause he doesn't know about bump outs. That was pretty average at best.

I repost mine on this page cause I believe mine was better even as throwaway clips just learning how to screen record and adjust FOV. Feel free to vote below.

Dude you have 1 popover trick and even that one is basic at best. Don't see any speed or accuracy there. I had multiple and all of them were times harder than yours. Relax. Throwaway lol. That being said, I don't play with mods so my shit might not look as realistic as yours. Too bad, I don't care.

Pop overs requires you to push the trigger once while grinding. Stop acting like its a genius move. Get over yourself. I turned mods on so I actually have to catch the board while popping lower so everything in that vid you would be incapable of doing. You should relax before I turn off my mods and do every trick in your vid cleaner and filmed better.

Camel clearly bodied technique, on throwaways.

Plus the fit is just on point in every fucking clip, makes me really wish I had a pc just to mod and not be stuck with the console options.

This game had the potential to be really cool, but they wanted to make it so realistic that it is too hard and loses dynamic.

Also, the way we view the skater is to close to the him, we lose angle to the place were we going to make the trick.

The mobile phone app game was much better.

Disapointed.

more disappointed the devs pretty much abandoned the game or at least suck at communication. probability that it even gets updated is gonna be low the more the game relies on mods on pc. console players got ripped off imo. they should still sell it for 15 or 20,- imo and left it in early access.

the game is great fun if you are willing to put in the work to mod it out, but fuck the devs, seriously. they've done shit since it went early access. the modding community did 90% of the stuff that makes this game really worth playing. otherwise it would be too frustrating to keep up with it.

agreed on them shorthanding consoles but pc players don't really have to "put in work" to mod. I'm a computer idiot and each new map is literally a click, open, and drop in folder. The mod manager is also idiot proof imo.

The main thing that needs to come to consoles is the stats menu. It would make even the existing console maps work way better since it unlocks obstacles and lines that you would float over before on the console's moon physics.

yeah, i get that it's fairly easy, still, other games let you subscribe to mods simply via steam and then they just show up in game. and it's true that maps, clothes, decks etc. can be simply added via drag and drop. but that doesn't change that you actively have to keep up with the mods and updates and all that. the more complicated the mod economy gets the less incentive the devs will have to fix it up because people will expect that all the mods work.

the stat menu just won't come to consoles unless the devs buy the mod and implement it into the game officially. and rn they seem to be chilling, which is cool, but they could say aight guys, we're taking some time off and then we will come back and work with all the modders on the next update and see how we can polish things up further.

just hoped the game would be way more polished than this, it seems the devs put resources into the wrong things, like mo capping, which didn't have that much impact on how good the animations looked imo. i don't get why the stat menu and camera presets, or a exit game option, music options, aren't part of the final release. there's no excuse imo, especially when you call it a sim. sims usually have all kinds of options to customize experience. i see people saying on steam "bro it's a sim, it doesn't need a music menu or too many options, it's for purists only!" yet everyone plays with tons of mods to customize every aspect of the game. the only people reeking in money are the devs.

my main problem is the devs being scummy by releasing the game and apparently peacing out on the project on the grounds that the community will develop the rest of the game for them while they continue to rake in the money, a good amount of which they rightfully deserve. but imo they should then honor their claim of supporting the game after release or at least work with the modding community to implement the most popular mods and pay these people from the money they made from the release. anyways, if easy day studios abandons this game, they will be a burnt dev anyway. apparently the mobile precursor of skater xl has been abandoned right after release as well.

i guess we will see what happens.

I'm pretty sure the devs are stuck trying to get the switch port to work. They didn't communicate an awful lot while it was in early access, so this isn't surprising. I'm assuming an update will come with or after the switch release, but not before.

yeah alright, but i still think it's wack they didn't learn to communicate. it's just expected from a good dev. imagine dlx acting like that, haha. we'd give them so much shit. the devs need to be held under more scrutiny and not glorified under some false gatekeeping mentality that they made a game for "hardcore real life skaters only" which is what i read a dude say, which made me chuckle hard.

anyways, hope you are actually right.

I don't know... as an independent dev trying to get mods/updates through to companies like Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo I assume they're at the very bottom of those companies' lists of priorities. They have FIFA updates to approve and implement. Or Fortnite. Or Call of Duty. Or any number of high profile games that will make a company like Sony probably one million times the money as a game like Skater XL will make them.

It's a shame that the game doesn't have more content, but I really like to turn on the game, turn on a podcast and just chill for 30 minutes or so.

But that is also the way I approach skating. I don't film often. I don't try a lot of tricks that I will get hurt doing. I honestly skate flatground and curbs 90% of the time. Maybe I'm just a boring skateboarder and I like this boring skateboarding video game.

Modded some polar big boys with the Tiago mesh on a custom character. There's clipping with shirts but I much rather run this than the default pant fit. Easy day get on this.

The devs have said they are currently working on content and there will be an update soon. This team is full of good dudes. They care about the game, their not just gonna drop it.

In the meantime, bask in the glory that is PC:

i dunno man, full on gravity, but a bit more pop. i have my skater pop just as high so i can clear the highest thing i want to skate. still dabbling with it though. grind and manny pop is the same for me and at a about 0.5 i think. i sometimes think the stats are a lil buggy though. and i play with high and low pop, not strictly baby pop. i think sometimes it looks weird when people have pop too low. i like it better to have it float a little bit, just looks better in footage. sometimes the skaters look like they carry weights or something.

max possible speed.

grind pop off straight or to the side depends on what i skate.

i'd like to have manual catch on but need to set my controller up differently i guess. i hate catching with clicking the stick, i find it to be unreliable. most the time manual catch looks like a yo flip, too. i just keep the flip going via holding the flick and then let it autocatch when it's not super perfect so it doesn't look too generic.

tons of stuff i didn't change or dabble with yet. i'm fine where i am at rn. plays good and i can wallie lots of things, doesn't look or play too floaty, reasonable pop height.

I haven't played this in a few weeks, but if they do some updates for console version I will be re-psyched on it. More levels and more customizable options and I'll be good again.

Iíve gotten a lot better and am enjoying myself.

My chief complaint, I want it to be easier to do 180 shuv-it flip tricks, and harder to do the 360 version.

I want to do laser flips, 360 hard flips, and 360 inward heels exactly never.  You should really have to whip it around to do those tricks.

Is there something Iím missing?
Title: Re: New Skate Game! Skater XL
Post by: 2th on October 20, 2020, 02:57:00 PM
100% agree. I'm getting closer to feeling it out but you have to be so delicate to do a big heel or ghetto bird or something similar. I found turning the little stick display on and practicing helped a bit
Title: Re: New Skate Game! Skater XL
Post by: doyle on October 20, 2020, 04:04:01 PM
As annoying as it sounds, it just takes practice to be able to do varial/inward/hard flip/heels easily (instead of the 360 variations).

I'm building a PC right now and being able to play modded Skater XL is one of the things I'm most looking forward to.
Title: Re: New Skate Game! Skater XL
Post by: Dr Waffles on October 22, 2020, 03:28:10 PM
it also helps to manually catch the varial tricks I've found. I still get annoyed with them, but they are much easier when you use the manual catch.

Good on you! Welcome to pc gaming. Enjoy the free online play, modding, frequent sales, and ability to upgrade when you want without buying a 500 dollar hype machine everytime Sony or Microsoft decides you can upgrade. Sorry got carried away. I hate those two companies so much.

haha, i have sort of a creative block.

got all kinds of footage that i can't seem to edit right.

i made some mini edits, some longer ones, they all were fucked in a way. can't explain. i feel like i'm becoming super neurotic about rhythm and music. so i finished a bunch of vids that i discarded then. i guess that's normal when you edit stuff.

They haven't published anything on social media in the last 50 days, people is constantly asking about updates and maps and there's no answer.

Also it's been more than 3 months since they launched the game and there's no new content for consoles or any news about the switch version.

Maybe they're taking a rest but looks suspicious that they stopped the content on social media. There's someone from the pc comunnity knows something more?

Porting to nintendo is a famously difficult process. I agree the communication is bad but I wouldn't be surprised if a PS5/new xbox and switch version are what's holding things up

I personally think itís just fine that I havenít needed to upgrade the PS4 in 7 years. I also havenít upgraded my PC in the same timespan, and guess how many new games that runs?

But community content on consoles canít come soon enough, fantastic news!
