Another refund story:

I'm at the give-us-info-then-we'll-transfer-you-to-a-refund-person step. I first put in this ticket Oct 3rd, so... I don't know what their criteria for refunding/not refunding is, but apparently I failed it, since CIG hasn't updated my ticket for... two weeks. So I called my bank for a full chargeback a few days ago. (But today I read in this thread people waiting 33+ days for a refund. Oh well, too late now.) I'm assuming CIG's payment processor has informed them by now. I wonder if that will wake them up.

I think a CHARGEBACK.gif is needed, along with the REFUND one. At this point, for people who are just now trying to get out, I would say to start with a refund, wait TWO WEEKS, then go for the chargeback. Waiting a month or more is bullshit.

It had been about 2 weeks since I last heard from them and was about to add a note to my ticket when the support person emailed me last night to ask me to clarify what I wanted.

quote:

Sorry for the delay. In order to move forward with the request as quickly as possible I just need to gather some information from you. Can you please confirm as much as you can of the following information regarding your refund request:

- Confirm that you accept that partial refunds are not possible - A successful refund request will result in a permanent and full account closure
- The total amount you anticipate
- Your current PayPal e-mail address

Generally, we don't offer refunds outside of the initial 14-day or such longer grace period as required by applicable local regulations. Having said that, I am not dismissing your refund query as we like to consider each request on a case-by-case basis.
I quickly responded that I understood a partial refund was not possible and that my account would be closed. I anticipated $40 back and gave them my PayPal address.

This morning I received an email with this:

quote:

Thank you for your patience thus far. I am happy to confirm that I have actioned the refund for $40.00 via PayPal. This can take 5-10 working days for the funds to appear. Should you have any further questions or concerns let me know.

As this was a complete refund your account has been permanently de-activated. Should you wish to return in the future you can create a new account with the same details.

Hopefully it will hit my PayPal sooner than later.

A RSI forum poster named Nebohtes made a series of videos some time back regarding modularity and how mass distribution should shape maneuverability and the IFCS speed cap. It's an interesting series of videos that still seems relevant even with the latest direction CIG seems to be taking with the flight model. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Orwhe9nZJuM Skip to 5:14 if you want to see the breakdown. If they don't gently caress it up and end up implementing something like this, I'd be pretty jazzed.

obsessive compulsive, relentless, insulting;
offensive like feeding a vegan some dolphin.

gosh, this thread has been a hell of a ride. These people are intense. Oh Dsmart, always thought BC3000 was a great idea and that you were a cool guy for making it free. I attempted to play it on some old rig in my teen years when it was on the cover disc of an Australian game mag but it ran like a slide show so I never did get a good crack at it, still, free = cool guy. Just bought rebel galaxy on recommendation, while it installs I'll drop some flavourbombs on ya'll... that is, if it's still ok to post recipes.

Easy chicken / beef tomato stroganoff
take two onions, dice and fry in butter until they begin to brown. Add 500g of lean beef strips or chicken thigh fillets cut into strips and 250g of fresh sliced button mushrooms, cook till the chicken has no visible raw bits, stirring often . add a 400g can of tomato soup, 400g of tomato paste and a 400g can of mushrooms in butter sauce. stir for maybe 5 minutes and then remove from the heat and let cool slightly. add a small container (300g?) of sour cream and stir till incorporated, then return to the heat and stir until the sauce simmers. serve over steamed or boiled rice, feeds 5

Creamy prawn Bisque
Peel (and devein if you want) 500g of prawns (I think they call them shrimp in the US?) reserving the heads and shells.melt 60g of butter and fry the shells and heads for 5 minutes, crushing them a bit with a wooden spoon or similar. Add two tbsp of plain flour, 2 liters of fish stock and a tsp of paprika. incorporate the ingredient then simmer, covered on low heat for ten minutes. strain the mixture thru a fine sieve into a bowl and return it to the saucepan, discarding the heads and shells. Add the prawns, cook for 5 minutes, allow to cool slightly and then blend or food process in two or three batches. return to the saucepan, add 1 cup of cream and 1/3 of a cup of dry sherry, heat to a simmer, add salt and pepper to taste. be careful not to over salt. serve topped with a swirl of cream and a sprinkle of paprika, with warm crusty bread. This one is good.
