Better Graphics Maybe?

I really love Wizard101 as it is, but sometimes some of the things can get a little bit weird. Like having a narrator tell you what your doing... So anyways. What if when you're talking to a character, if your sound and dialog volume are on, then there's no little text bar that you read from, instead the camera goes around you and the speaker! And whoever's talking, their mouth moves in accordance to whatever the person's saying. And you could possibly have some people record voices for the characters, so then you could kind of hear yourself talk. Or something like that. I just think that would be cool. Thank you!

Because some younger people who play can learn how to spell by reading the dialogue. Plus, what about people who can't hear?

Hmmm...very true. Well, maybe in the beginning, when you're in the tutorial, Ambrose might ask if you want to read the dialoge. Or something like that. It's just a rough idea :)

I would love if this happened. It would give the game more variety. And you could have the option to switch it on or off....

:) I support this idea 100% :D

Pirates is a different game. Please don't mess with Wizard. I am quite happy with the game the way it is and have no intention of playing Pirates. thank you

Omg i totally agree that the graphics should be better! I don't play Pirate101, but i figured the graphics would be better. It sorta pains me to think that they (I don't know who 'they' is either, so don't ask) would put more effort in the Pirate101 game experience then Wizard101, but i am all for the idea of better graphics. (but... my computer already loads slowly enough. Would higher definition make it worse?)

i have a new idea because of you

you know on games you usualy have a low, med and high graphics button. well if your computer is slow you can put it on low setting, that mean the graphics wont be great but your com will load faster. med will be the normal graphics and high for players who have amazing coms and want the better graphics.

who agrees now

Hi Kingsisle!! Can you guys make the game graphics the way they are in the new tournament comercial? I have alot of friends that say if the graphics for the game we're as good as they are in tv, they would actually play and buy things to continue playing. The new graphics for the commercial we're really cool and i would love to see the game look as cool as that Thanks KI LOVE YA!!

I know some users have old computers that have trouble running the game as it is, but maybe for higher-spec computers you can add more details? How about shaders and motion blur? Maybe you can upgrade texture detail even more? Leave what you think on this page.

I am one of those users and don't have thousands of dollars to buy a new computer since mine functions pretty much as new. If they do this, and I cannot play, then my membership goes away. period.
I guarantee I am not alone.

Hi. I have recently noticed that all of the rounded objects in this game are not very smooth. If something looks rounded, it is actually straight lines at angles. Seeing technology is better now then when the game was made, I would like to see some more objects rounded out. I would think that smoother round objects wouldn't cause too much lag, as it isn't any moving parts or any updating parts. I would like to see this game evolve into something so visually stunning, that it pulls people's attention. Then you wouldn't have to make the graphics on the commercials look 999% better than the games graphics.

tl;dr: Make round objects smoother.

Over the course of time, developers of an MMO will usually update the graphics.
This can be seen in World of Warcraft's most recent update.
I think sooner or later, Wizard101 will be getting a graphics update, similar to the Artwork found in Khrysalis and Pirate101. The game has been out for awhile now, and even just a slight HD render would be a nice addition.

I think this will be a really great update to do. But if they are going to do it I think that they should leave an option to use the old graphics so people with slow computers can run the game too.

Yes, I believe it should only be an option to update for higher advanced computers, although this would delve into more problems...

They should update the graphics to Pirate status
Pirate101 has beautiful graphics

Well i was wondering well if you play games besides this you seen better graphics and i have no problem with the graphics on wizard101 but i think they could be better even if most users dont have a gaming pc i think if they ever make ultra graphics the game will look real Awesome even tho i'm fine with high graphics options on wizard 101 i really think ill be nice to see a realistic dragon even tho it might be hard to make graphics like it i know the game is focused on the young kids and they dont really care about Graphics but but i think ill be nice to the older public that play it , do you think is possible in the future???

I really like the graphics as they are. I like the whimsical, "young wizard" feel of the game. When I want the realistic graphic games, I go play them. This is not that kind of game -- and the art fits the game quite well. So no, I don't think this is the kind of game where realistic artwork is needed or fitting.

I don't see it happening anytime soon. There are way too many kids, parents and grandparents who play on basic PC's or Laptops that just couldn't handle higher end graphics. The vast majority of players couldn't use the option so why spend a huge amount of money on it for no return?

The new graphics would be very fun, but many people like me wouldn't like it because of the "bad or slow lap tops" we play this awesome game on. If they change graphics, the low spec pc's will be very slow. You get the idea.

Thank you for the attention
