View Full Version : Recent map conversion issues at NC...

I must say, this CannabisCorpse is tearing us apart. He, first of all, converts some of our favorite maps into UT2k3 form - without asking or acknowleding the authors. Then it sparks bitter resentment for people like me, Prophet, AlphaDMF, or others. We voice our opinions, which are obviously 0's (or close to it), and others, CC included, flame us for not having a heart, not to mention the way CC just flamed Prophet for one of the reviews. That's unacceptable, and I stand behind Prophet here. Now many of CC's followers have started to speak against this community, which I am glad to be a part of.

My point is, I don't want to see this community go to pieces because of one person, or what he claims to be his, or the things we say about it. These issues need resolving one day. It's just a concern I had. Thanks.

and thanx for your concern Homeslice, just when I think the scene is fading, the good part of the community steps in to redeem it all;)

Read through the comments again. You'll see how many people support him....bah.

But seriously, I know there will always be map rippers - but I've never seen one quite like this guy. I was just a bit paranoid that all these people who like these maps would all try to boycott us, because they think this place has turned to a hole, filled with "*******s" like you or me (they said it, not me). If anything, I think this place is much better than before, and I respect what you said about this string of conversions you reviewed.

cant NC just have a policy of not reviewing conversions?

Well I personally wouldn't be too upset if these people left NC. Remember these are the same people that rate DM-CubeFilledWithWeapons 10/10 because they are "fast paced".
imo, they are a menace to the community. Someone who is actually interested in downloading a decent map could easilly read those comments and be tricked into downloading CTF-AndAction. A fate that I wouldn't wish upon anybody, no matter how much I hate them :p

Anyways, I flamed CC pretty bad on the Tempest2-k3 comments again. It will prolly be removed by MC soon enough (sorry, I can't help myself). Hopefully CC will get a chance to read it first though :p

And those new screenshots he put on those maps? He's doing that to make us even more mad. Really, that is just immature of him.

Yeah, most likely. "My maps"? HelloooO! Not his! The original Unreal crew was robbed....

"His" DM-Curse LE scored 92/100 on that pcgamers site, so please shut up guys! He canīt be wrong.
BTW: How is it possible to make a 25MB file out of the original? He always claimes that he is doing something for the underclockers...

As always , the moderators hide under the "constructive criticism" excuse to not have to deal with crappy mappers...

k , this case is ridiculous enough , I've made up my mind : soon you will see DM-PyramidXXXXXXXXL mocking the most honorable map ripoffs on their site. Bot_40 should release CTF-AreaZlalFactoryAlphaBase40 here as well to put the pressure on that horrible map torturer.

it should say somewhere there, that the map is a joke (i dont think anyone got the "screenshots may not represent actual map" thing as a joke, after our friend cannibas put intentionally wrong screenshots on his maps.)

hmm, it was only meant to be for people from #zlal but then other people started commenting on it anyways :p
