So they finally convinced someone to take Rexshilla's place?

Sorry to dredge this up from the past, but I don't think he's being paid to play Star Citizen which is somehow more sad than if he was.

I used to be a Twitch mod for WackyJacky and the reality is that he's super indecisive when it comes to what game to play (besides the usual PUBG) while also being very impulsive in trying out new games.
There were multiple streams where he got sick of PUBG for a bit and just trawled through Steam buying a bunch of games that he proceeded to try for like 15 minutes each.

He also tends to not do sponsored streams but whenever he has he has very clearly disclosed it.
I also think CIG wouldn't target a battle royale focused streamer from Denmark, but what do I know.

If it helps the amusement factor, he did get stuck in Star Citizen prison for 4+ hours shortly after he started playing it.

Bought the Aquila skins last night, when I put them on:

In space, it ejects loads of components and Merlin

On Ground, the ship spawns upside down...



I understand the game is in Alpha, etc. But come on... really?

Elite Dangerous is only $10 on Steam right now, and another $10 if you enjoy it and want Horizons. It certainly has its problems in the long term but you will most definitely get your money's worth at that price

Getting there (after it bitched I had 7.9 GB free out of 16GB)

Then my freebie firewall stuff said very few people (exact number was 5) bitching about how it wasn't digitally signed. Tried to take a screenshot of that one but then the game somehow finally loaded and was presented with this.

Aliens: Colonial Marines has a VR mod now. Probably better than SC.

So can't make it past character phase. What is the trick? I tried the different full screen/full screen windowed to no avail.

And of course just picking those are a janky rear end mess.

Yeah full screen was some voodoo nonsense

Latest voodoo nonsense is: Tab out, tab back

Or wait for 15 minutes

: People like you are why most developers don't bother showing the development process and allow for a playable version of the game as they develop said game. You are seeing every issue and problem that every development team has to deal with in any large program ever made. This isn't unusual at all. Try enjoying the ride. Maybe learn something at the same time.

Elite is pretty good! I've got something like 250 hours in it and what it does it does very well (usually).

Honestly I've said for a while though that if you're after the Star Citizen experience (walking around inside a spaceship, running with a crew of friends, occasionally shooting aliens with a gun) you really can't do better than Pulsar: Lost Colony right now. Though the new crop of space sim/mmo monstrosities like Starbase and Dual Universe might change that.

"Can i return this game somehow? It’s been 50 hours since I downloaded it and played for 20 minutes (errors) including character reset."

: You can refund two weeks from the date of your purchase I believe.

That being said, what is happening now isn't representative of the game, its just being hammered by a influx of players; it will settle down during the next days.

: this really isn't the week to judge star citizen

: Well, if you want to judge a still in complete alpha title based on a stress test situation that's up to you. Probably should've done your research before getting involved.

: You have 30 days to request a refund, just be mindful it will take a while for support to get to your request but your ticket is time stamped. Also, next time actually research what you are buying, it will save you time in the future.

: Wow, a whole 20 minutes to experience SC. You didn't even bother leave the planet and you want a refund. lol, thanks for wasting the resources of the customer services team and our money when you could have just used the free fly event to try it.

: It's the entitled attitude of fresh noobs who come into the community and then are butthurt when they get the reaction they deserve.

This is exactly the stuff that REALLY wants me to dig through the SC codebase. Like...how can a skin make a ship spawn upside down? How exactly do you achieve that bug? I really, really want to see the code that produces this.

I assume it's source-code torture-porn looking at it, but still....HOW?
