Re: Descent Freespace on Steam - today (merged from Gaming)
With the way the Installer is designed, which mods are listed is entirely up to the mod creator. So second hand comments in random threads won't do quite as much as asking the mod creators directly to include their mod in the installer.

It was a wink wink comment to The_E, to which Axem replied appropriately. I meant no offense or irritation, just hope that when the Steam masses come flowing in they'll also have available one of the best mods around here (they already have access to your wonderful demo for instance).

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion

Saw the FS2 news on my Twitter feed a moment ago - now 50% to boot.  We can't do anything but win from this.

mmm multiplayer does not work for me, so they did not revive multiplayer... OK, quick fix, we need a "bring multiplayer back fix"... does retail FS can work with FSO multi whiout changing executables?

Because if only the missing registry network entry and just a host file edit to redirect old PXO to a new one can be easily done in a batch file.

Zero minutes on record in Steam, untold days on record in reality. :D

Well, props to Battuta. Looks like he's been on the frontline all day to help the Steam newcomers.

He has the patience of an angel.
Cause as far as I can see it, the steam forum is a cesspool of idiots.

"I bought a game and it won't work, I'm being spoonfed an easy solution to get the game working but instead im going to be very angry, make a string of dumb posts and complain about 'needing third party tools' to get it working." and "Reading is for dorks, so I'm going to ignore all the topics already posted that may contain solutions to my problems and instead make yet an other topic about exactly the same **** that 20 people before me posted about." to "I want muh 5 dollar/euro refund"
How do these people even operate pc's I do not understand. If it takes more than a single press of the install button to make something work half of these dumbasses give up.
Urutorahappī!!

[02:42] <@Axem> spoon somethings wrong
[02:42] <@Axem> critically wrong
[02:42] <@Axem> im happy with these missions now
