5. what do you mean "again"? Jul 3, 2001, 08:24 shul
 
Wow, I can't believe this. The patch is not going out.

I already stated what I think of lionheads marketing. it sucks. I don't know what expansion packs they are going to get out (for fee) and I really do hope that their next game will be more stable than this one.

About the micro management: you don't have to micromanage anything. They learn how to take care for themselves (except when they are about 3 villagers...)

There is a web page about this, if you want I can add it.

I am still waiting for something good to get out of this game. There HAVE to be something.

11. strange forum behaviour Jul 3, 2001, 03:37 shul
 
Hi forum programmers,
A strange thing happens now.. the subject "Half-Life Patches Soon" has 28 posts, as the "Popular threads" counter shows (on my computer, after couple of refreshes..)
but in fact it now has 37 posts, so I figured this is strange

7. the quote thingy Jul 1, 2001, 15:13 shul
 
Hi,
just wanted to tell you all that 'q' is a container that can be used for quoting things (because the postings in this OotB are filled with all sorts of strange quoting methods.. so you can use the 'q' if you want),

About the obituary problem.. well, Blue, sometime great people dies. I don't think we can do anything about that. "the goner of the day" got me dipressed too, but I reccon it will end sometimes soon... on the other hand, maybe you should stop it... donno...

1. a step in the right direction Jul 1, 2001, 14:41 shul
 
Well,
It seems like what once was a way of entraintainment for a single guy (or gal) is turning into a sport. a sport needs a way of being distributed to many places at once.

This is deffinitly a step in the right direction. I hope it will live up to the expectations.

btw.. anyone here remmembers quaketv? what was that all about ?

The history of the *nick* "shul":

shul is a person. I've been nicked "shul" by my dad long time ago (about 15 years) and when I got my first net login (which was before anyone knew what WWW was) I asked to be called "shul". hence shul.

shul, as I discovered later, is also a thing (couple of things actually) - but that is completely unrelated to my nick, which is a short version of my name.

Well, do you plan on adding the i container to 'q' ?

2. what lionhead SHOULD have done Jun 30, 2001, 05:19 shul
 
Ok ppl, I think I know went wrong with black & white.

Marketing.

Its all about Marketing.

U C. they should have do it this way:
1. get the game GOLD (not semi-betA)
2. start the hype (this step was done ok - but could have been done betteR)
3. publish the out takes + awsome screen shots
4. get the game to the shops
5. wait a month (this is what they are doing best, so I think we should show -off that capability)
6. publish more maps, add ons, start a mod community.
7. enjoy the profits.
8. wait two years. publish black & white II (named "purple or green")

this was another on of the shul's comments

WOW!
Dilbert. Black&White. pictures of my non-existent trip to the moon. dum developers. even dummer publishers.

All of those things and more are running through my head while reading this post of yours
...
On a brighter note I hope Maximum Charisma knows what they are doing

pleae explain how you got it to switch to a window...

Well, simply run it with -w.

hell, as crappy as Diablo is technically

You even admits it...

Btw, why did they make it that way?

I have a distinct feeling that someone said "hey, lets write a cool 3D engine, because thats where the market is going" and was flamed as hell, so they used their old technologies for this game too... (disclaimer: this might not be the case, maybe they wrote a cool 3D engine and Diablo II is translating it back into 640x480 crappy graphics.. I don't know)

shul (which noticed the "q" for the first time.. was that always there??)

... is about to end.

It saddens me that an Era in which all the brilliant people which created the internet is ending.
I recall a saying of someone at the darwin 100 years convention: "I wish we had another 100 years of darwin".

Just think of all the ideas this man might have come with if he had another 100 years to live :(... well, thats life for you...

take a look at Blizzard Software

what about blizzard?? how can you mention blizzard and valve in the same sentence?? Blizzard had some excellent games for their times. they were bitmap based and hence any jump in the resolution was a pain. the engine blizzard are using is the same (by concept) to the engine they used for warcraft I!!!! I can't even begin to compare the two engines. only now (Warcraft III engine) they are supporting "any 4:3 resolution ratio". More over - Blizzard didn't even mention Diablo II can't work in a resolution above 640x480 (you can switch to a little window and ruin your eyes with 1024x768 on the desktop... great).

So please, for the love of Vergs, do not mention Blizzard and Valve as the same monopolist-type company.

shul.

8. Re: Addons??? Jun 27, 2001, 03:57 shul
 
Been playing the game for about two weeks. Got to land 4. Suffered lots of casualties. Now I can't move to land 5 because of that, and my creature keeps forgetting stuff (he "learned how to use the village store" about 50 times already! and it still appears as "not learned" in his stats)

I must say I don't know if I'll play the game when the patch comes out. Maybe just to see if I can finish the damn thing.
