Master your own destiny! Command a nation!

Featured Developer Christoffer Krogslund (Reto.Tobby)

First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals, and what’s the story?
Tobby – It’s from an old Tuborg Gold commercial (misspelled – but hey, it happens!). Stuck with me for some reason.

What is your position at Reto-Moto?
Front-end developer. Working on the flash part of the game.

For how long have you been working here?
A few weeks now!

What games have you worked on?
I’m straight out of ‘school’ this is my first commercial game. I have however made several small games during my education, and game jams.

Which tools do you use for making Heroes & Generals?
Flash Builder and the very awesome internal admin tool.

What are your hobbies?
Playing games, from football to computer games to cardboard.

What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
The mixture of two genres. I love that it is possible to help a side of the war by only doing one of the two, and still feel that you are doing yours to win the war.

What’s the best thing about working at Reto-Moto?
The very relaxed atmosphere, everybody has been really welcoming… that is until the first testing session where no quarter was given!

What are you working on right now?
Working on understanding the code already in the system so I can contribute effectively to the team in the near future, and helping with the GUI revamp.

What are your favorite games of all time?
Hm, this is a tough one, the game I’ve spent most time playing is without a doubt EverQuest. It is still the game that has kept my interest for the longest period of time. Other than Baldurs Gate, Neverwinter Nights 2, Half-Life and Bioshock that comes to mind. (and Scorched Earth!)

What is your favorite movies?
Boondock Saints, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction…. basically i like gratuitous violence and people swearing.

    Ooooh – Scorched Earth is a classic! Played it quite a lot on my friends dads PC back in the days. :)

    Baldur’s Gate is an amazing game. Still play it today, I like the old rpgs.

    Hello nice to meet you, thanks for working on my favorite game of all times.

    The flash map is a little bit faster now, i really liked the idea of hide the battle information and make it only visible to generals with ATs in the zone.

    The game is much better now but im still having the same problem than before and now is even worst.

    I have a decent machine, amd 6100 + 8gb ram + nvidia 550Ti, my connection is good too, at least for me, a good battle has 100 ping.

    The game start at 60 fps but in a few minutes the “frame-dropping” starts, in this build the problem reaches the amazing 4 FPS!!! making unplayable the game, after that the frame oscillates beetwen 30 fps to 4 fps in the most exciting moments.

    Please fix this “LAG” or “frame-drop” whatever you want to call it, lots of players complaint about it all the time.

      And I thought I would be the only one with those FPS drops .. same problem, but since Irwin or Keating (the build where the AT limit per battle was put up)

    gtx550ti is worse then a gtx460, almost gtx450 level. really a terrible graphics card.

    Try picking up a gtx470 at least… Its older model now and you can get it for cheap.

    • avatarReto.Vashu11-05-2013

      As Bloodsky is saying, take a cheaper but better card. 760 is going to be really cheap, which is really good. That should increase the games awesomeness a lot.

    Welcome to the club…was about time that Vashu and Indus getting a helping hand xD

    I have an older PC, I play this game for half a year, your improvements are indeed fine, but Manstein will definitely increased. Since then my game mower, I’m not going to load striking those kampan.Je I can start my first online geme I’ve ever played. start me very entertained and I enjoyed the game now I’m very disappointed.
