Should I release this really unfinished and bug-ridden (with various ugly bitmaps and balance problems) mod?
…Or should I not because it would be useless?
F*** this, I wanna play Call of Duty
Sorry everyone, but since stopping work on my WWII mod some weeks back, I abandoned it and am canceling it. Please vote in the poll and state your reason for voting. If there’s too many votes on one side or the other, I will follow that route. However continuing work, for the time being at least, is out of the question. You only have a week to vote.
EDIT: IT IS RELEASED! Keep in mind this is an ALPHA. IT. SUCKS.
You’re making a brave step by posting this news, and I applaud you. If you find yourself in a position that you know you’re unable to continue work on the mod while still doing a quality job of it, the only other courses are to do a low-quality effort with whatever time & energy you still have available, or to abandon it. This is only a game, albeit a fascinating one. If I were in your shoes I’d stop where I was; no harm, no foul.
I’m also proud of you for announcing your courses of action in advance…too many other mods have slipped – or come verrrry close to slipping – into the smoky fog of limbo without a word from their creators, never to return. I’m not saying that perhaps those folks didn’t have good reasons for being able to carry on with their mods, but even a short farewell post would have warned us that no further content would be forthcoming before its creator had to cease all work on it.
I would say you to keep your work with this mod, but if you don’t want right now to keep working in it I won’t try to encourage you to do so, I’m also having hard time with the stuff I’m working on (it isn’t trouble with bugs or balance, is another topic my problems). I’d say that if it doesn’t mean much work you could release your work done as a resource for another modders eager to keep working on it.
After reading your post I think I’ll put up the few updates I did on my mod which I kept for myself because I wanted to finish all the hulls first. It also worries me when modders suddently stop their work with their mods without saying anything.
Thanks Hybrinoid for reporting this to us
Dedicating this 50th post to Wiktionary (the best place for translating words),
i voted release,simply because you already did some work on it,and it would be a shame to let that just dissapear
someone can pick up where you left and build on it, that way it might very well see the light of day as its supposed to be one day
Lost? Wtf? Did you look under the bed and in the jar on top of the shelf? But seriously, is your harddrive brocken or did you just erase it accidently? Because then you could try such a program: runtime.org/
first of all,dont get vista,EVER
second,best system atm is probably still windows XP pro,unless your time is cheap and you`re in the mood to put up with a system thats about as smart as a kilogram of fine sand and is trying to think for you
third,yes,try some data recovering tools,they can help you a lot
cant help you much with the 3d engine error,i`d say it has something to do with your video drivers or directx,but thats probably the first thing that came into your mind anyway
