this Weekend was pretty rough on my ISP. Still don’t have Internet at home, so my employer was kind enough to let me upload this week’s episode. Enjoy!
This week: PWE nukes the forums, new Terms of Service, and the community is in justified nerd rage mode.
- Simple, honest nerd rage
- PWE/Cryptic shitstorm – they deserve it
- Outrageous Terms of Service:
- Non-Optional soon (http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=570451)
- Lots and lots of practical problems
After a week of testing and crowd sourced spell-checking, I re-release the classic Foundry Spotlight mission “The Longing”. I’m humbled by the feedback and reviews the original mission received. So, those of you who know the original mission will notice some enhancements and changes. These are based on what I personally liked and disliked about the mission, but also the reviews by PodcastUGC, PriorityOne, and player comments.
Here comes the trailer:
You may have seen the new “Star Trek Online Demo Launcher”, a tool, that allows you to handle demo files without touching the command line. There have been a lot of changes, since i first presented it here three weeks ago.
This weekend, I had some time to further tweek the demo launcher. Thanks to the input form the guys from STOked and the knowledgeable comments from JohoCrol, I’ve managed to include some exciting new features. Currently, the StoDemoLauncher is at version 2.2, and evolving rapidly.
The tool has a shiny new home at sourceforge, thanks to CaptNeo, who copied over the project from the one-click filehoster and setup a proper open source project there. In this article, I’ll talk a bit about the new features in the “Star Trek Online Demo Launcher”, give a short tutorial how to manage your demo files, and talk a bit about the next baby steps.
