    Ahh, cool, good thinking on your part, its always cool to see a "real" game company put out stuff just so there players will have more fun :D , like how bonus packs are relased for free, just to make ut more fun, mods make it so people can have fun making new cool stuff thats free, if only people wouldnt warez I think we would see this more often.

    Did you read any of this thread? The Demiurge guys have explained why. Did you sign up for your user and password, just submit your email address, thats all i had to do to download it.

    The whole user/pass system is a good idea. First, if it was publicly available, there would be lots of "this doesn't work" around. Second, if you can't be bothered to type your e-mail address in a box, why should you get to play it? And third, this is good enough that (if it had more maps in it) I'd be quite prepared to pay to play this version. Excellent mod.

    I'd be happier if they automated their mailing-list sign up process so that submitting your email would automatically put you into the address list and send out the automated first message with information about the list that just about every mailing list management software available has the ability to do.

    C'mon guys, there's a hundred scripts in just about every CGI scripting language you could want, so an automated message sent immediately after the submission letting us know we're on the list would inspire a bit more confidence in your potential audience.

    As it stands, many people sign up and never hear anything from this company, and write off the mod forever.

    Cosmic,

    You make a good point. An automated message letting people know that the signup was successful is a good idea. I'll talk with the mailing list admin and see what we can do.

    As for your assertion that people sign up, then never hear from us - that's hardly worth discussing. If you sign up, you'll receive a username and a password. We've repeated this several times, and we've delivered. Have a little faith before you "write off the mod.... FOREVER!"

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Actually, it is worth discussing, because several people in other mainstream game forums have noted that they've never received any email whatever even after weeks, and have in fact written off your mod in their posts.

    Posts in which people complain about giving up an email address and never getting a response after a few weeks have then caused a domino effect in other posters saying that they then don't feel comfortable giving up email information at all if that's the situation and then write your company off without ever even having submitted an address.

    So yes, there are plenty of people who are writing your mod off because others haven't heard a peep from you in weeks.

    Hey when are you guys usually online for a playtest? I can never see anyone online when I search on the internet server browser.

    Since this isn't the finished version anyway, I can't see why "writing off the mod forever" is worthwhile- if they don't get the e-mail (which most people have, including me) they'll probably be back for the final version anyway, which'll be more polished than this one.

    He did ask a couple of days ago, and we told him that he could NOT use the rocket bike model and code. I thought he got the message. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are contacting him now.

    Did so never got a response... that was during the time I posted my message. Am going to try again right now. I guess hotmail isn't good enough? lol

    " Finally, we would love to bring this to the retail market, but there are no concrete plans to do so at this time. Maybe if a thousand people all called a publisher, and demanded that it be released. But as of now, no plans "

    Probably won't happen, since only 10 of them could probably actually get the damn thing! :mad: :rolleyes:

    Yes I put in my email address just as I did the first 2-3 times. Never got a response.

    ^ what he said (though am actually trying again )... I mean come on unless this is an internal release or a closed beta there shouldn't be so much exsutivity to the mod.

    Heyah! Help me a little bitty bit, please.

    The problem is that I signed up and did NOT receive any username/password to download the beta. Please give it to me here: wsimons@poczta.onet.pl

    Thank you in advance.

    Howdy folks,

    I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to everyone who's been waiting on a username and password for the mod. We're approaching an updated release of the mod, and a big part of the reason we haven't sent out new passwords recently is because we don't want you guys to download an old version when a new one is on the way so soon. Having said that, I'm still sorry that we haven't been letting you all know what's been holding things up. We're in the process of setting up mirrors and servers for Clone Bandits, so hopefully this release will leave you guys with a lot of servers to play on. On that note, if anyone is interested in hosting a server, feel free to send me a message and let me know.

    Once again, thanks for your continued patience.

    Cheers,
    Tom
