101. Re: Reason for the delay Jun 8, 2004, 09:58 Tigger
 
However, you may rest assured that it was many, many more than 2500.

I stand corrected - former NASA Administrator Dan Goldin says that 25 years ago the Voyager spacecraft had 5000 lines of computer code.

If you're talking about patching a system and then counting the total number of lines of code written (including code replaced/removed during the patching process), I could see how you could arrive at a figure of 'many, many more times' than 2500. But lets face it, the things had a memory limitation to deal with and I was really talking about code that keeps the spacecraft operating today - not total lines written.

The project is called Prey Forever and will have more lines of source code then the Voyager space probe!!!

Thats not saying much, I think Voyager only had around 2500 lines of code.

What's the point of leading people on?

Indeed George, what is the point. By the time this game finally comes out, most of us will either be dead or in nursing homes.

wouldn't damaging yourself be an excellent way of recreating the E3 experience?

Yeah, but then who would post the news?

Out of the Blue

So here I am in the hospital being treated for electric shock. Note to all, don't flip your lights on and off rapidly after consuming a pot of coffee.

1. Hold on there, Blue May 11, 2004, 11:33 Tigger
 
Given your past experience with electrical devices (computers, coffee makers, etc.) you may want to refrain from quickly flipping the lights on and off. You might damage something or yourself, and that wouldn't be very good for any of us.

Gabe directly says that the delay would have happened without the source theft

Sounds like Gabe is planning to run for public office with an interview like that; having Vivendi say that they were delayed by the theft when it happened rather than just admitting they were going to miss the ship date.

Almost adds credibility to the argument that the code theft was engineered/faked.

38. Re: Derek Smart Simulator? Mar 23, 2004, 11:17 Tigger
 
I believe he was referring to "text scrolling action", not text adventures.

No, I was indeed referring to text adventures. Back on this old thing:

14. Derek Smart Simulator? Mar 22, 2004, 15:29 Tigger
 
The problem is that if Derek Smart gets involved then the game will be too complicated to play, full of features not even halfway implemented and ugly unless they return to the old days of text scrolling action. Although Derek would probably screw that up.

53. Re: didnt even get it installed Feb 11, 2004, 21:21 Tigger
 
Each of my drives has 3 GIGABIT of space avaliable at the LEAST... one has 40 GIGABIT free!!!

By your account, then you have about 380MB free on one drive(3gigaBITS = 384 megaBYTES)
http://www.edoceo.com/utilis/bandwidth-calculator.php?from_bw=3+Gb&cmd=Calculate

and about 5 GigaBYTES free on the other
(40gigaBITS = 5 gigaBYTES)
http://www.edoceo.com/utilis/bandwidth-calculator.php?from_bw=40+Gb&cmd=Calculate

If you're going to complain, at least get your terms right!

People that come out to take pot shots are not “real” BluesNews posters, just the average internet callers.

Nah, they're just trolls.

Also, he says in the forums if the price is $20, he won't make any money and therefore there will be no patches.

If this is indeed true, he's going to have a hard time sueing DC for his loses. They could always counter-sue that he sabotaged games sales by making claims like that.

And is taking it rather well. And he's even talking about doing a demo.

I'm pretty surprised.

21. OMFG Jan 30, 2004, 14:03 Tigger
 
A DreamCatcher Spokesperson says “Our pricing strategy has been set in the best interests of the title and more importantly the consumer. Universal Combat provides terrific value to the consumer at $19.99 and we are happy to be able to deliver that value."

Translation:

"This game sucks too much to sell for $50, so we're hoping that people will buy it despite the horrible review its probably going to get."
