I did this too Goober so I'm not singling you out, but we were critiqued a while ago in the BWO thread for critiquing the direction of that campaign (saying it could have been released by now for example) but we didn't critique Raven personally did we?
Now you're just muddling the issue; I should have locked this thread when I split it. There is a big difference between constructive criticism coming from a desire to see the campaign succeed, which is what I did and have done for BWO, and simply tearing down people and projects through unmitigated negativity.
Another point on this matter: perhaps there's more reports on bug activity because every time there is a new one, it needs a post. On the other hand, when it comes to praise for a campaign it only really needs to be done once doesn't it? (For example if I liked the campaign despite finding say three bugs...that would be one 'good' post and three 'negative' ones)
I have no objection to bug reports. If the release contains a bug, I want to fix it. The original point was about the amount of activity following a major release. Compare the length of release threads nowadays to the length of threads a few years ago.
I was waiting for fixes and recent version is fully enjoyable. Debugging a mod of Scroll size is hard task and require lots of time. This is direct reason why Exile is still sitting on my HD waiting for release from about a year.
Glad to hear it. As for Exile, if it's waiting for release, then release it! I'm sure lots of us would rather play an imperfect campaign than no campaign at all. If there are bugs, then players will find them and report them, just as what happened with Scroll.
No matter how much time it takes to fix a mod, it still fully depends of mod leader when he want to release the project. I think Scroll should be released as "public beta" or something like that when it was actually released, but this is only my opinion. Whatever is driving mod leader to release or not release their project in this particular time... Well, it's not my problem and not a problem of anybody else. I play, I enjoy so I respect time and patience authors put in this. And respect for authors obligates me to respect their reasons, no matter how strange it may be for me.
Well said, and good points. Fortunately, the additional time has allowed the necessary bugfixes to be added.
With that said, I'm locking this thread to prevent further distraction and confusion.
