But you didn't make a simple request for the beta, nor did you ask if it
was technically feasable. Like so many others you just assumed I didn't
have my own reasons for doing things the way I do them. Instead of
asking nicely you said it in a very negative and offensive way. Now, if
you were working your tail off to get a game done and you got a commont like
"Sorry, but I'm not replaying level 1 everytime I die on level 2. Good
way to make
me not play the game anymore."
wouldn't you get a little upset at that person? What you said showed no
gratitude or appreciation for all the work I'm doing. Nor did what you
say take any thought or consideration for the fact maybe I have reasons
other than just marketing like the fact saved games don't carry over
from version to version forcing you, the end user, to remove any saved
games and create new ones? Did you think for a second how I would read
that comment and how i would feel about it? No, instead you copped an
attitude which sounded to me a lot like wining and complaining. I've got
very little tolerence for complaints these days.
As for setling down and relaxing well it is obvious you have never had
to put up with the same kind of crap I'm putting up with now trying to
get this game done. Look, if you want to know what kind of crap I have
to put up with from end user's you can have Mysteries of the Ancients
and Raceway. You can write them, and get e-mail after e-mail
from the end users bombarding you with complaints and suggestions. Some
will be nice about it, and some people won't be so nice. Instead of
hanging out with your family and friends you can spend hours working on
this or that game trying to get it done. Then, you might want to spend a
couple hundred bucks or more out of your own pocket for sounds and
music. If you really want to know what that is like I challenge you to
write your own game, and let me know exactly how you feel after you have
gone through the things I've been through, and you gotten your fair
share of complaints exactly like yours thrown back at you.
I'm sorry to be so harsh, but some times enough is enough. One person
can only take so much before he/she cracks or just says this or that
just isn't worth the time and energy any more. That's where I'm coming
from. I've reached my limit of how much stuff I'm going to take off of
people regarding these games, and I'm just going to have to say "no" to
various suggestions, complaints, etc until it gets through I am
determined to finish This game as soon as I can with as little fuss as
possible. I hope this makes sense.
