    Mince your words?
    How is my response to you saying "they'll have a tough battle" mincing your words?
    All i did was repeat what Ian said on Twitter...Take it up with him if you have a different opinion...

    It takes Rockstar/Take Two - a multi-billion dollar company - a year or so the port their games between platforms properly. There are numerous listicles of the "Worst PC Ports" that were either rushed or the dev teams did not take the time - Rockstar is on a few of those lists from GTA IV, Batman Arkham Knight, AC Unity, Watch Dogs, etc. You can go on and on. I wouldn't even call pcars1/2 a properly ported game. Iíve played the game on both pc and console and it runs like hell on consoles with physics tick rate bugs, 10-12 car field limitations, inconsistent framerates, inconsistent FFB, career save wipes, etc.

    You oversimplifying a "one-click export" is wrong. Massive work needs to be done after that export for an enjoyable and consistent experience between platforms.

    It isn't wrong, but what you say isn't wrong either. Of course the game needs to be optimized per platform. It just isn't the case that you need two years to prepare your game per platform because you don't have a modular game engine in the first place. That's already a massive plus in time and effort.

    But yeah, bugs can creap in if the game engine is modified to support a new or another platform. Sometimes it doesn't play ball with the rest of the game code.
    I am sure SMS and other game studios run into tons of issues daily in these more and more complexely written programs we call games. Sometimes it might not even be a developers fault on the game side but maybe the fault lies console side. Which means a lengthy back and forth is needed with the respective companies before a fix is available... again taking time. Time is money and money for development is not unlimited, thus bug hunting and releasing a game at all (let alone on time) becomes an ever more intense struggle.

    That said, the Madness Engine is a modular multi-platform engine. So basically you will need to port your code to each platform you desire to release your game on, and optimize it individually for each platform... no matter if it is a Mad Box, PC or other console.
