Guys over at bf42.de accused us of spamming, bf42.com too. even a webmaster said that he wont post fh updates anymore especially not "uninteresting render pics" (and I remember some guys in here complaining about too many renders too)
We WILL bring daily updates back before the release Mr. Kämpfer. We WILL get you a trailer in the near future. What should we tell you of new coding? How much the spitfire now turns better than in 0.61 or what projectile / armour thickness rate we have on the new panther D sideskirts?
Mostly everthing that was high quality was shown when releasing 0.6.. anything that we didnt show? for 0.62 plz dont forget that we still have time and still wanna do some rendernews before the release.
I dont think FH will grow tremendously if it releases more frequent updates. The only things through which it can really grow largly in a short period of time are quality, gameplay and recognition by the big magazines and TV. If you have better suggestions plz feel free to post them in here. But what I do know is that after every major Update FH got more players and after the small 0.5 patches we lost them.
0.62 should have become a little bugfix. BUT at least at the time when hundreds of fans were furious about the new flight code and complained about the quality of some models we knew that 0.62 was not possible as planned. So we looked what needed to be done. What nation still needs their own truck? What code should be improved or even completely redone? What maps does FH still need? Does FH lack static objects?
We answered these questions and many more .. these took 3 months to answer.. until now.. 0.62 has evolved to the best FH there was and again is another major update. - and surely not a small patch.
Again I really don't understand why you want patches (especially code patches) every 3 or 4 weeks. besides the heavy downloads and the relatively small changes... Isn't it frustrating if you try to get to know game really good (you re FH clan gamer for example) and the dev team changes the way you have to play every other week? adjusts weapons, balances maps, recodes vehicles, changes damage and armour values?
This is the way for 0.62. It will be a major update. If everything goes well we might start updating FH with smaller patches!!!!! <---
It's not like we re the big bosses and you fans are nothing. That is very wrong. But plz.. I can understand that some have waited long enough (3 months.. thats nothing you should be part of the dev team. we wait for finally being discovered for 2 years now;)) but I would like to remind people that we are free, have real lifes, have personal problems, ranging from girlfriends who start to sabotage our pcs to major exams at the end of the schoolyear and still try our best to get you an enjoyable and extraordinary mod.
'LIGHTNING [NL']Look: Devs = Boss You = nothing
If there is no update there is no update. End of discussion.
that certianly puts it in perspective.
A mod is nothing without it's fans lightning so we are maybe slightly above nothing.I rate us as slime at the moment :uhm:
Why not announce it as 0.7 then..
Some people seriously need to get a life, name one mod that updates as frequently as Forgotten Hope, with decent updates and even more small tidbits of information in the forums. Spoiled little brats!
What I meant with that comment is that you are not in charge of this mod, and if the devs don't post updates for some reason, you should accept their decision not to do so and leave it with that.
plz read my edited post lightning that wasnt very nice.
AceSlightning that wasnt very nice.
Yeah, it wasn't, sorry about that. Just pretend nothing happened :p.
Well said ace, cant wait ;)
AceS ranging from girlfriends who start to sabotage our pcs
Did this really happen? That's some foul shit, if my girl tried some crap like that, i dunno what i'd do. Thats like grounds for a breakup :p lol
All you guys with the arguements centering around the 'lack of popularity to to bad PR' can stick it. You already have the mod, what do you care about how its publicized. There are NUMEROUS 32+ servers that are FULL ANY GIVEN NIGHT. The mod isnt going to die out because they dont give you your toys ASAP.
Besides, even if they did do mini releases, you all would just end up whining about how bad it was because the stuff was released too early.
IMHO, I think FH is definitly on the right way .. no other game Ive played has managed to keep me this interested other than Delta Force 2 wich I played for 3 or 4 years.:bows:
