Community, ever the best with developer relations.

Oh wait. You treated them terribly. Silly me.

the internet is not the place for thin skin. a dev should bear it and not react like touchy wannabe-gangster.

That argument applies to the community bitching about bC's attitude then, no?

Truthfully, I'm concerned for the future of the modification. The modder that's helping me out is more or less continously post-poning the update release each day, and has told me that it's almost ready each time I ask hows' it going.

Latest update was that he's got the day off now on Wednesday so that he told me he was going to try and get the mod done until Thursday, or on Thursday. Considering we're closing now to a 2 month work on the update, I'm getting sceptic to weither as if he has even started on it.

I'll just sit by and wait, because that's all I can do. I've been looking for assistance on other frontiers, but it seems like a relatively dead-end, and this is more or less the only pausible solution. It's onfortunate, but if anyone knows anyone that would pitch in, let me know- it wouldn't hurt I guess.

Steam don't charge nearly as much as gfwl per patch do they?

Mind you, gfwl charge an obscene amount per patch (like 60k)

@caeltos

Cuz someone said something about doing a kickstarter to get the game patched.

And if it's free, I don't see why relic wouldn't just push out a patch developed and approved by the whole community/99% of it.

Sure it'd be completely new territory to have a game patched by the community, but if it can implement bug fixes more than anything else, it'd be worth taking the idea further.

It's not going to happend, there's noone left to support the game. It'll be hard to get something going in that case. Onfortunate, but the cold harsh truth.

Yep, I don't hold out any hope for it.

But if someone in the communit was patching it, and it wasn't costing THQ anything, I could see it happen.

But no point in talking about it cuz it simply won't.

Developers are also only human. Something you should perhaps bear in mind before expecting them to act like a saint while you act like a sinner tongue.gif

(and no, I'm not religious, and yeah, sorry for the derail Caeltos <3)

You don't get it. There is no-one at Relic to work on DoW II anymore. The few individuals I know of that were associated with DoW II have been re-assigned (assumption, but viable considering DoW II support is dead and they weren't fired).

Also, GameReplays is not "the whole community", or even 99% of it.

EDIT@Caeltos: sorry man, I really feel bad about not being able to help out in the end. Finals are killing me post-13661-1143531603.gif

Depends on how slow Gabriel (that's your helper, right?) is, but I will/should be available over the summer, if that's not too late. Might work on some tools in the meantime.

Steam and GFWL are both free. It's only on the consoles where it costs money.

O-weeeeelly?!?

Well, that maxes it a little bit more possible so!

I guess THQ could be asked if we provided a bug patch would they push it out, considering that it'd only take them very little time and no resources as a result!

And yes, go to THQ, not relic, as while relic don't have anyone left to support the game, THQ have the final say. I'm sure they wouldn't say no to their game being patched for free...

I think letting some modification to run rampant as an "official" patch is not a very good idea. Infact, I'd be abit frightened over how people would view it. I'm not sure it would also be a good sort of "PR" to let your average Joe be in charge and responsible for the future of ones games balance-department and whatnot.

I just foresee alot of issues with it. I think it's in the better hands of a developer rather than so just your average joe.
