It's kinda no use to comment anything negative. Star Citizen fan will literally have the conversation they want to have; mainly that it's an improvement over previous versions.

I have run upnp... but it seems even though I haven't updated OpenWRT in a while, I scanned free and clear. Quit running junk software on your routers?

I hate to sound like one of those Linux guys who tells you you're doing it wrong, but you're doing it wrong. I'd say learn how firewalls and port forwarding works. It's really not all that complex. At the very least, you can train a chimp to forward ports.

If you rely on someone else to tell you you're secure, your security is as good (or as bad) as whatever tool they're using.

Pretty much anyone serious about network security has disabled this long ago.

If you haven't, do. UPnP has always been a giant Swiss cheese security hole.

Yeah, I'm kinda surprised this is still something we talk about.

Actually would love to know Derek's thoughts on the current state of the game.

Do you see what you did Half Elf? This is why we can't have nice things; this went from a 'look at the state of this game; 285Mil - 8 years in development and its still in Alpha to "0H my G0dz D3r3k IS 5UCH A n00b AND 7HI5 G4M3 R0CK0RZZZ!!

I'm here for the civil comments, lack of speculation, speculation, hate, love, and at least one person calling this the longest gaming con in history.

Okay, let's go

Honestly, its the only reason I read Star Citizen threads. I've bought cars for less than it costs for some of the packs they sell.

M249 Reload - PUBG Logic (ridiculously long reload times).

IF only gamers hadn't been stupid enough to buy drm laden PC games, dedicated servers would still be a thing in AAA games and your cheating point would be moot because we'd still have stuff like sdk's and modding for the AAA gaming space.

I'm not sure I totally agree. Quake, Quakeworld, Quake 2 and Quake 3 all had dedicate servers but cheating was still a problem when you played Internet games.

Cheaters are why I don't bother with online games anymore. Carmack called this way back in 2001 - its impossible to make a cheat-proof game so its better to play with your friends.

Wow, I can't believe this is still a thing we talk about. Development started in 2011 and they're still not done. How many triple AAA titles have been started and released in that time?

Here's my problem with EULAs like this:

Microsoft insisted it won't actively police its services – but, beware: it will investigate complaints from people who are offended by what you do on Redmond's platforms.

They can insist all they want but if its in the EULA then it can be used to end your service if they find whatever you're doing to be objectionable.

The next major update to Windows 10 is going to embed "machine learning" into the operating system, they plan to use it to analyze pictures and video content on your system. I'm sure they'll sell it as being some sort of automatic search and sorting feature. Looking for a picture of uncle bob? Just type his name in and up pops all the pictures on your computer with uncle bob in them.

I'm not too worried about this. I stopped using Windows day to day years ago. I mostly use Linux and macOS these days - and macOS only because it has better support for some key business apps I need for work.

The statement from RSI just barely sounds patronizing at best, and deceiving at worst. I work in an environment of rapid development with scrum and Agile, etc. And when you look at other hugely complex SW Development projects with all the same obstacles, all the same complexities, etc... they make it work just great.

I agree completely. I work in the SW Dev industry as well and I've seen this kinda thing many times before:

"We have no scope document or vision statement so we can't prioritize what needs to be done."

The good news is absolutely no money was spent on the live streams production value.

Never truer words were typed. Watching anything Star Citizen is a bit like watching two busloads of nuns in a head-on collision. You know its going to be awful, but just can't look away. I couldn't even watch 2 minutes of this garbage.

If you're one of the poor folks that plunked down any money on this, you embody the words of PT Barnum: "There's a sucker born every minute."

Any crowdfund is a gamble since you are investing in an idea/product. It's an interesting concept and I still enjoy it, but I'm far more selective in what I invest in these days. In total I have helped crowdfund 13 products, not all are games, and the one I regret to this day is MWO as a collosal disappointment.

I go by these rules if I have money to invest at the time:

1. Have they delivered any previous crowdfund projects successfully?
2. Have they delivered any previous non-crowdfund projects successfully?
^ Produced something I enjoyed or could see myself enjoying (decent reviews help)
3. Do the company leads run an efficient business already?
4. Do they have a reasonably, sound concept and maybe pre-alpha footage if its a media product (not overly ambitious)?

I remember this particular one, but I steered clear.

I'll add:

Do they specifically list their team members (by name and picture) and their previous accomplishments?

Have they backed any other projects? This is more of an etiquette for me, but I always thought it was tacky to ask for money if you've not been involved in KS before.


That's a good list of things to look at. Since there is little or no accountability for crowdfunded anything, I'm just staying away.

Router devices do not implement sufficient UPnP authentication and security

Someone just reported on this now? Amazing! The next thing they'll tell us that most implementations of WPS are unsecure...

Well its certainly not the data breach you've been looking for. IMHO, the only thing impressive is the number of records. And to be honest, I've worked with records sets much larger.
