This cliched analogy assumes that Derek's accurate accusations were somehow causal to CIG's problems.

Accurate accusations? I am more impressed what he doesn't know or about what he's lying.The 4 defamation lawsuits are all made up. And regarding his former legal endeavours he was (mostly) just a part of a group of defendants or plaintiffs no where near the legal warlord he claims to be.

G0RF posted:

A Neurotic Jew addressed this already so I won't belabor the point of noting your error.

Let's just say we agree to disagree on that.

G0RF posted:

We likely won't. Save for Bootcha, who has a right as an investor to require that disclosure. I wouldn't expect him to share that here, but the fact that he's already completely lost hope in the management team, based on his own research, should give you pause, as should the fact that you sincerely hope they DON'T have millions just lying around. (Cash is their lifeblood, and the less of it they have, the greater the likelihood they will fail to deliver 'The Best drat Space Sim Ever'. Just FYI.)

Sorry, but without any proof I would rather believe in Santa Claus than bootcha being an investor. And following AP's links and searching this forum he already would be in serious troubles if he really is. It is one thing to pretend being an investor of some sort but being an investor and supporting allegations regarding federal crimes is really really stupid.

And if he is an investor and really signed a contract without rights to see their books, he is an idiot.

G0RF posted:

Hey, we agree on a second thing. Yet you don't seem to agree with yourself, since only sentences ago you said you hoped they don't have millions lying around. Unless you are rooting for it to fail, which you obviously aren't, then you should consider doing the work of reconciling your contradictory opinions. Cognitive dissonance is a burden to those afflicted with it, and you deserve better than to suffer from it unnecessarily.

Again, thinking that companies should have millions lying around which isn't equal to be solvent. This shows how clueless you guys are if it comes to anything business related. But if it makes you happy: I am confident that they have enough "money lying around" to continue this project, including 2016. So we can save ourselves the discussion about how to invest money if you run a business. My English isn't good enough for this anyway.

You would lose.

I emailed them last Thursday and included a note that I was going to begin an investigation through paypal if they did not answer up and acknowledge my emails by COB Friday.

Still nothing back. Looks like I'm going to go through paypal, which sucks for them. Paypal has something like $600 spent on it whereas the account itself, at the moment, is only worth about tree fiddy.

I'M AWARE I'M
AN IDIOT



From last month's Citizen Con presentation, for context he starts talking about the alpha 2.0 features around 19:12 or so. Given that, their website lists the alpha 2.0 features as only including the various IFCS flight models and makes no mention of the additions announced at their convention. So really my question is 1) what happened to the launch of multicrew, the FPS integration, the "large world" integration, etc., and 2) what about the upcoming patch (which now appears to be comprised solely of new flight models and bugfixes) warrants the bump to alpha 2.0 as opposed to, say, alpha 1.4?

I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, just genuinely curious as to the state of this game. It baffles me that there doesn't seem to be any concrete release schedule for a game 3 years in development, and the best the various wikis out there can do is project based on years-old developer quotes. Just help me out here.

Aside from having problems imagining Microsoft, specifically, as one of those “funny” companies, yes. That sounds just like the kind of desperate attempts at executive humour that appear at company rallies to motivate the troops.

Give us some loving examples of why CIG having money in reserve is bad business practice, even if it's in German. German speaking goons can at least translate it for us. Otherwise you're just a walking joke, who refutes everything with "You are wrong because I say you are wrong."
