    Default Resident Evil Classic Edition: The Truth


    So I suppose we should come clean with this now. Yes, the videos are fake, as are the boxarts. There is no Resident Evil Classic Edition. Sorry if we disappointed anyone. We really didn't mean for this to get as big as it did, we're mostly a small knit community with a couple dozen active users. We're known for pulling April fools jokes a few days in advance so most of the regulars knew what was up. Things sort of spiraled out of control when a thread popped up on Neogaf and then the Capcom BBS. Our goal wasn't to promote the site, or cause distress to people. We just wanted to play a little joke like we do every year, but new advances in modding/hacking over the past year left us with a golden opportunity. The announcement of Biohazard 0 Wii Edition also helped, as that seemed to be fake when it was initially announced as well. So people were more open to the idea of a port. So to anyone whos upset, I'm sorry. We really didn't want to cause you any personal distress. As an apology, we're working hard on the translation for the Biohazard 5 interview from Famitsu's 25th Anniversary Capcom DVD. All 14 minutes of the interview will be translated and then subtitled. Additionally, I'll be posting the raw captured recordings of the Classic Edition videos for you quality freaks.

    I can't believe they banned you from neogaf for this.

    Not yet, anyway. I probably will be, though. Lots of people calling for my head. Seems a bit silly, but then again I did promote the second video in the thread. Oh well, probably for the best.

    I knew it was too good to be true lol! For oldschool (damn, I never thought that I will reffer to PSX platform that way ) gamers like myself, it would really be cool to be able to play RE4 in classic camera angles! Overall great work here - you got me fooled XD!

    I left so many breadcrumbs too. In that second video, look at the X button when Leon enters the first door. I didn't even bother to edit out the green Gamecube button below it when it fades out.

    3D camera panning around while I recorded footage. The hard part was making it seem to go at a steady pace. After that a lot of post processing in Avisynth to make it dissolve to the other villagers as the camera followed them. Then a simple overlay with the logo/options/copyright on top. It was definitely not real time as you saw it on the video.

    Prime, what are the EVD's? Most of this stuff was hacked in post processing, the buttons for instance were taken from an excellent XNA pack by a guy named Jeff Jenkins here. For Hunk's game, I just switched off the HUD (which killed buttons too, but not text) so that I didn't have to worry about editing out the green gamecube button after you enter a loading door. You can see that on the second video if you look close, its green when it begins to smear

    Yeah, yeah, this isn't neogaf, but it still seemed relevant.

    Speaking of neogaf, their reactions are priceless.

    Nope, not at all infact. No file editing here really, just RAM values. Which scene are you speaking about, I can try to elaborate more.

    I keep getting a kick out of how its just those same 3 guys calling for my head throughout. Man will they be pissed when they realize I'm back tomorrow thanks to the mercy shown by Dragona Akehi.

    Good one Dot!!!! you bring a lot of attention!!! i can't wait next year joke!!! and: yay!!! you didn't fool me!!

    hahaha

    Also, don't listen to that people, they are upset because they don't appreciate an awesome joke, specially one that was so elaborated!!!! c'mon it was just a joke!!!

    Just read all the posts and you will find that the people that was "bitchin" about it wasn't real members.

    By the way, i would love to se the HQ video of the "classic Edition", it would be awesome if you have done the Seperate ways "classic edition", i surely would fall for that !!!

    It would've been okay if it was like fake news of the death of the president or some celebrity, but videogames? That just crosses the line dude.

    You should give the joke up after the first video, because, as someone have pointed out in one of the threads, an April Fool joke is not funny, and an April Fool joke, when most of people know it's not true, is even less funny. And, as you can see, lot's of people registered here only to tell you that ;D.

    But on the other hand, you did great job with the videos. The second one with 3D title screen and almost-static camera was great to watch. And it only prove that RE4 with static cameras would suck .
