On Sept 29th, she tweeted this suspiciously looking Dean's letter supposedly from UNISA. We think it's fake; and she's going to get deposed - under oath - over it.

This is Roger Windle on p20. He had nothing to do with marketing programs at UNISA. And he seems to have fallen off the face of the Earth. We think he may have passed away.

I made a few tweets that we were looking into it. And we did.

Neither my contacts in Australia, nor our researchers here in the US were able to find ANY records of her ever attending UNISA. As in ever.

And shortly after my Tweets, when they found out we were looking into that too, sure enough, the 3rd LinkedIn profile with the UNISA college, links to its Alma Mater etc is now gone too. That's three LinkedIn profiles removed as a result of what I've been looking into.

These are the people we gave $90m to. And somehow, this is all OK.

Thanks, Derek. The blog is simply mind-blowing.

Indeed. It is one of the best pieces of literature I read this decade, maybe my whole life even. Thanks Dr. D_Smart for typing these words for us.

In the meantime, since my July blog posts, they seem to have continued issuing refunds. Though there are reports that some people have waited for up to four weeks to get their money back.

Report: I'm 6 weeks into waiting. In the meantime 4 different customer dudes asked me 4 times if I _REALLY_ wanted to get a refund and if I won't be so kind to state a reason. So I confirmed 4 times in the last 6 weeks that I _REALLY_ want a refund / my account closed, and no I don't want to state a reason or link to an article. The last message I got form them was ~2 weeks ago. Since then nothing.

How much are you in for?

Total was $500 but I sold all my standalones on ebay for a good markup. The Arbiter LTI M50 is probably worth $110-$130 I would say. It's really not that much but it's still money that I could spend on other dumb poo poo I will regret later, so yeah.

The loving thing has a loading screen when you go to the space section out of the interior of the place you are in, how in the gently caress is it going to handle full sized worlds...

That's what critics have preached for years about this game and Christos Robertos choice of CryEngine. See Infinity: Battlescape:

quote:

When we originally set out to build a space game we came to the conclusion that there wasn't any technology available that would allow us to realize our vision of a seamless transition from the surface of one planet to another without loading screens. We hate loading screens and, as life long space game enthusiasts, we resolved to build the technology to accomplish this ourselves.

I feel like 2.0 crashes are related to missing game assets.
You climb on the constellation bed the game crashes
You finish downloading missions from relay station the game crashes (possibly tries to spawn or despawn enemies?)
i have yet to see fps i have seen 1 guy trying to shoot but the gun just doesnt fire (theres no fps mechanics in 2.0 so they end up disabling it and blaming it as bug)
someone boards a ship with you and the game goes insane trying to sync the position of both players on the ship ending up throwing the original pilot out of the ship.
the game constantly crashes every 5 minutes because its trying to load up a asset that doesnt exist.

But hey at least they finally made some progress with multiplayer infrastructure (maybe)

That's $95m and over 4 years of development for you, good sir. Enjoy your spacegame.

TALI IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE

1 Fly Tali from grim hex to Port Olisar
2 Quantom jump to no destination after being shot by crusader police.
3 wait 5 seconds and exit pilot seat

ACTUAL RESULT
when you exit the Pilots seat the tali will now be back at Grim Hex. You can exit the ship and walk around. then you can enter the ship again get in the pilot seat and fly the ship again as if it was in space.

EXPECTED RESULT
Once you leave the pilot seat the Tali is transported instantly back to Grim hex.
