I've never heard of isolating the green channel of the normal map and using it as a paint layer. What effect does that create exactly?

WARNING They dont listen to their users as much as they like to say they do. Check their forums. Plenty of requests go unanswered. Their "To Do" list has been outdated. They lack staple features such as a Text Tool, Adjustment Layers, Channels, Layer Styling, Proper Cropping. Paintstorm cant even resize a photo correctly (It will always leave a border when resizes). You also run into square artifacts occasionally. There have also been several instances were paintstorm was detected as malware, once called out, the dev reuploads a clean version. This happened at least twice from forum reports and Virus Total. Aside from the very obvious lack of support and maintinence. The brush system is good. However a good brush engine will not replace the other basic features and functions paintstorm lacks. DO NOT expect support. This is definitely a homegrown app and it shows. If you want a versatile brush engine, clip studio or even krita is where its at.

RUMOR: Electronic Arts wants to acquire CD Projekt RED? Probably not
14 September, 2015

DSO Gaming reported a rumor, that casts a shadow over the future of CD Projekt RED (CDPR). One anonymous developer (presumably from the Polish company) contacted the website and told about Electronic Arts representatives visiting CD Projekt RED.

People from one of the most powerful game companies in the world are currently meeting with the top management of CD Projekt RED and discuss super secret stuff. The employer believes that they are negotiating the terms of the possible takeover. Electronic Arts wants to buy CD Projekt RED? One of the most successful independent AAA-game company in Europe? Seems plausible, but still you need to take it with a grain of salt.

The anonymous contact believes it’s a takeover, since CD Projekt RED is not going to release any games anytime soon, so it couldn’t be a publishing deal. However, CD Projekt RED does have a next game which is called Cyberpunk 2077. It’s still very early in the development, but this project has been announced quite a while ago.

There’s a lot of blind spots in this story. For all we know, they could be meeting to discuss plans for the distribution of Witcher 3 on Origin, or about partnering with But it is happening and the two companies are talking to each other. So far CD Projekt officially denies such rumors.

What do you think? Will they merge like Activision and Blizzard? Tell us in the comment section!

Hopefully not, EA means games will not be in Steam anymore, and they have overpriced games with too many DLCs.


[…] The small studios will always be there and with the way they can publish their games on Steam / GOG and similar platforms they can be very profitable. I think there will be more games created with […]
