It was a pointless exercise - it'll be done when it's done. I'm doing as much work on it as I can in my spare time and don't particularly feel the need to see that sort of BS on the forum.

oh well sorry i guess i was under the impression that you could talk about anything mod related in the mod discussion section of the forum. (the "Talk about anything Hidden Source related" in the description of the forum section could be classed as misleading)

its not like i was asking for a release date.


You got your answer, it'll be out in a month.

since when was a release date announced?

That thread started as BS and should have been deleted long before it was. Some people were actually buying that crap. I know it's all in fun and they should probably read things more closely, but it's not cool to have your hopes dashed and feel like a gullible idiot at the same time because you are unassuming.

And I'm sure Ging had fun deleting that PoS thread. =P

Seriously, that thread was loaded with misinformation about Hidden to the point that people were actually buying it. Why should that be tolerated in the Hidden forums? I mean, was there anything in that thread worth saving anyway? Make a new, pointless thread about something more harmless. =)

...and to answer the question in the thread title, yes. These forums are a vaguely benevolent dictatorship.

Honestly, is that news? :P

sorry i kind of figured the majority of the forum had an IQ over 5 and could read the thread title. "Guess the hidden b5 release date"

not "OMG LOOK I HAVE THE b5 RELEASE DATE COME REED ME 4 REEL LOL"

i guess i was wrong.

i know this is off topic but you should try to sell this game i think it will sell pretty good i have over 20 members in my clan playing the game right now

and one more thing are you guys going to make it so more then 10 people can play this would make it better

Sorry buddy but it just doesn't work well with that many people. Just how it is. Consider investing in a second server perhaps?

yeah i was thinking that

Boxy
30th July 2008, 14:06
Yeah, the mod will never cater for more than nine players in total. With all those players AND all that physics flying around servers are already crumbling under the sheer effort it takes to run HS as it is. Putting 18+ players in there would be total anti-fun to be honest and cripple most servers...

I'm sure if this game was ever 17 IRIS vs 1 Hidden you'll still have people whining about the hidden using nades =P

I mean, can you blame him!? He's against an entire legion of armed men!

Paegus
30th July 2008, 19:16
hardly a problem for the wrong kind of hidden. but that's already been discussed. the phys/ragdolls would kill the server.

-SM-SUCKER
30th July 2008, 19:35
...people whining...
They would even cry more if certain Hiddens would start winning against 16 IRIS.
Besides, what would the round time have to be? 10 minutes? I wouldn't want to be one of those killed in the first two minutes then. 8 IRIS is fine. It's well balanced.

Demented
31st July 2008, 05:14
4 minutes. 17 IRIS. Maximum fun.
(Let's not forget a parade of explosive barrels.)


the phys/ragdolls would kill the server.

Depending on the server. Most CS:S-sufficient servers would weep and cry while Hidden forcibly inserts its massive calculation overhead into their sensitive pipelines.

back to the main topic, so basically your admitting that most of the forum has an IQ under 5, and cannot diffrenciate "Guess the b5 release date" with "OFFICIAL B5 DATE ANNOUNCED IN HERE PLOX".

maybe you should just ban the people who start the rumors rather than delete the topics of the people who have done fuck all wrong.

Cheesey
31st July 2008, 13:44
Are you just begging to get banned? I don't think that's a good manoeuvre...

TheOtherDante

i think a good manoeuvre is a hard bank to port and loosening the sails, but thats just me.

the opposite of Dante's good manoeuvre is opening a plane's door...while 12000 ft in the air XD

But to address Merciless's shocked condition, the dev team does have the option to delete any thread they deem useless with or without anyone's "second opinion" (they ARE the dev's afterall) and they really don't need a reason if they see fit to do so.

But Ging gave you a reason and i do think, correct me if im wrong, that it was more then suitable given his position. He felt it didn't fit in here so he removed it, end of story.

Otherwise you'd sound like a 5 year old who got handed a cookie by mom and then had it taken away 5 seconds later...drama drama drama. It's just a thread, get over it and make a new (better) one. :)

Merciless

well i guess i didnt realise it was that kind of forum.

i care about --> |-| <-- this much about being banned.

im not making a big deal out of it i just thought it was a shit excuse to delete my thread, because complete idiots believe what other complete idiots say.

I really dont care about posting here to be honest, because im not here to be baby sat and told what to talk about, its a forum, not a god complex playground.

there are far worse people on here that could be being dealt with.

ok i guess you didnt read the original thread.

the fuss is about the way the forum works not that my thread got deleted.

it makes more sense to me to ban the rumor starters rather than delete the thread which the rumor starters posted in.

i seriously couldnt care less, i posted the thread to try and keep the community looking forward to b5 (and myself), and it got deleted because some assholes posted in it claiming real b5 release dates. it makes way more sense to punish them rather than delete the thread i posted and start saying it was a "bullshit" thread.

claiming real b5 release dates
Last night I made out with Ging's girlfriend. After one hell of a ride she told me the release date. In fact B5 is ready, the devs are only waiting for that special moment. They want to release it once Sister Mary Elephant gets laid. :D
