No I have wasted to much cash out of pocket to start this and got $0 in return. Everyone only wants stuff given to them for free like Sturmwind for example. That game has been in development for 16 years but no one wants to pay $40 for one of the best DC games ever. I will never pick this back up nor release anymore GDR beta's sorry.

And that my friend, is the problem with the entire world. Expected entitlement.

Sorry to hear it. From what I can tell, you've been an integral part of the scene for a while.

I did release all BETA's I bought for the project as promised before asking for any cash but alas I got an offer for $13 total out of the $500+ I spent to start the project.

Yea curb it wasn't only here I did not mean it directly towards TiZ just fund raising in general for stuff like this. Everyone wants it but no one wants to pay is all.

It really comes down to the community and what content is up for grabs. I'm not too familiar with the DC community but I know people will pay for something if they want it badly enough. Plenty of fundraisers have been successful on other systems to prove this so I can't say whether it is a reflection of the DC community or just not enough interest in the content up for grabs. In either case I'm sorry you feel this way.

Yeah man, but it's not like these games are still being produced and stocked on retail shelves. I know we live in a slightly hypocritical realm here, but I'm not the type to mod/rip current games or systems. I do my best to purchase the games I really enjoy playing. No sense at all downloading every game in existence, for one, the majority of games suck, two, who has the time to play them all? I plan on giving this site it's due $ eventually. I'm just not in a great $$ position right now.

What I was talking about was atreyu spending his money and time and getting nothing in return.

What an odd thread. Quite absurd actually.

No disrespect meant, but did you find out BEFORE you spent money, whether people are interested in paying money for this software you dumped? I mean, it is clearly a big hobby of yours that you would have done anyway, regardless of whether you raised any money or not.

My interpretation of what happened here, is that you went ahead and dumped this software. Then told people that we "really want this piece of DC history omg" when it is obvious that people didn't really care, otherwise they would have coughed up. Which ends up with you berating people, for not paying up for software that they aren't interested in.

You did say as well, that this was a "feeler" for whether anyone would pay for Test Drive Cycles, market research if you like. That's fine. So why didn't you take your findings and quietly take stock, instead of issuing veiled threats to "sit on the BETA until the dye deteriorates" ? It doesn't endear people to you.

Did anyone ask you to dump the discs and then not pay up? I suspect not.

Atreyu, clearly a very technical man and a big DC enthusiast, very intelligent I have no doubt but sorely lacking in people skills. You should maybe employ a PR consultant.

***I'll probably be banned for speaking my mind here but sometimes I just can't help to speak up where others probably just bite their tongue and keep their head down. I can't say I blame them though.
