    Wasn't it disabled by default on purpose?

  3. This turned indeed into a great and sick psychological experiment...look at the smiles over at the other forum..."they are finally listening", "slowly all bugs might vanish now" etc.

    Paired with many, very honest and angry comments.

    This isnt some kind of content update, this is clearly a "stir the pot of dirt, to create even more distraction from the main problems...called MindArk"

    The radar is still jammed in and around the Akmuul Teleporter...since many, many years. :'D

  7. They never tested updates anyway...never...which is a major exception in the online gaming market...yet it works with this tiny (and rich) community.

    The joke is, in a world where everyone else is adding more and more detail and vibrancy to their games, (high res textures, physics hair, cloth physics, deformable objects, mo. capped NPCs etc etc) MA are now busy removing theirs.

    If I wasn't crying I'd be laughing

    Thing is that Mike is very very good at telling a story. MA not so much. Mike has talent. MA not so much. Mike understands the limits of the engine he works in. MA not so much.

    I had drinks with Mike a few years ago. Really, really nice guy. Very humble, too. MA not so much.
