On the FAQ it says that FoMk isn't designed for Linux and is Windows only. So.....probably just scary
My reaction to the game is that it has alot of potential once the few glaringly obvious problems are ironed out, but has anyone actually been in closed beta???

I can't say anything nice or comforting to the "mechanical" minded who don't reconize what BETA is. Alot of you talk about the game like it's finished product and like you're paying for it.
If you have legitimate complaints quit blowing hot air, figure a way to present the problems maturely and constructively and most of all inform the developers in the bug tracking system.
All in all, if you can't do that then stick with Yu-Gi-Oh or something more intellectually specific to your kind.
Frist of all, I say... You cant say whats the game like if you have played it nearly 2 hours...1. ITS LAGGYNot to me... You should put lower graphic setups, or buy faster net...2. PEOPLE KEEP DISAPPEARINGPeoples disappear when they log out, or just run away... If you set your setups that you can see to far away, I think they wouldnt then.3. I'VE CRASHED 4 TIMES ALREADYHmm, This is a beta.4. THE WORLD IS EMPTYThats not true. Its not full, but its not empty, go to newyourk or somewhere... Just today 100 L.E.D s were on me.5. YOU CAN TALK TO NPC'S BUT IT'S POINTLESSWhy you even talk to them, they are not maked to talk. If you really need to talk to a NPC it is fully programmed.6. THE MARKET IS WAY OVER PRICED AND DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH USEFUL ITEMSThat is true. But if you dont see somewehere nice items, why you shouldnt use vortex and go to somewhere else? 7. WE HAVE NO STARTER EQUIPMENTOh, yes there is. Frist of all buy a gun, after that chack your missions, get a group, do the mission. They tell you for example. how to craft items8. WE HAVE NO INSTRUCTIONSWell, This game doesent have ingame instructions. But if you go http://www.fomportal.com you can find there instructions.9. THE NOOB EMAIL IS TOO EASY TO AUTOMATICALLY DELETE OR JUST *DISAPPEARS*You can always find it when you hit "escape" key and look at your mailbox.10. TRAVELLING IS EASY BUT EVERY CITY HAS THE SAME CRAP, WITH NOTHING TO DO!Yes, every city... citys are for buying something or talkin. But if you want something else, there is space with lots of things.11. WTF! THIS IS BAD!You cant discuss the game if you have spent 2 hours on it.12. CHAT IS HORRIBLE! EITHER PEOPLE DON'T RESPOND OR THEY DON'T SEE THE CHAT!Yes, if you got problems dont scream them to public chat. Use your faction chat. You can find it by hittin "escape" kay and then you open the mission tab, press the last button in the tab, and start screaming.13. DO WE DO MISSIONS? DO WE MINE? WHAT DO WE DO? WHERE DO WE DO IT?Well, yes we do missions, you can searc them from your mission tab. Yup we can mine, for example in new haven. You do what you want. Where do you want.14. THE IRC CHANNEL SUCKS! IT'S A MODERATED CHANNEL SO NOBODY CAN TALK AND ASK QUESTIIONS!That has nothing to do with the game, I havent myself even been there. I dont use mIRC...15. THE FORUMS ARE CLOSED! WTF! TOO MUCH TRAFFIC? DAMMIT!Yes, that happens when they open the open beta. Sorry.16. I PAID 50cr TO TRAVEL SOMEWHERE, THE GAME CRASHED, AND I'M ALL THE WAY BACK IN MY APARTMENT, ARGH!Oh shit... That is so bad, you get 60 000cr starting money and you lost 50cr of it...
Yes this game horribly needs a tutorial.

He just wrote a check for $750,000 to research cures for various diseases that affect Africa. What would you do with $750,000? Yeah, that's what I thought, now shut up with all the Gates slandering.

FOM comparison to a pile of shit. Notice the similarities.
Player A says This is a new experience for me.
Player B says How do you move in it?
Player C says Its a pile of crap.
Player A says It took alot of time and effort to make.
Player B says No manual ehh hrmmm....
Player c says Its still a pile of crap.
Player A says Why do you say that?
Player B *sigh*
player C says Just look at it!
player D say Well there is something new if you'd only give it a try.
Player A say Yea look there is steam coming off it still, its new wait awhile it'll get better.
Player B yells I think i found a piece of corn!
Player A Ive been waiting a year for this to come out.
Player B yells It is a piece of corn!
player b says yea This game is the shit..............
Moral is no matter how you look at it, its still a Pile of shit.

So your complaint is that you couldn't work out the controls and there is no manual.
The point about the manual has been covered in great length by other posters in this thread and I'm sure will be rectified as OB progresses and the controls are the same as alot of old school shooters so aren't exactly challenging (you can also remap them really quite easily) . Why don't you say something constructive instead of just flaming??
I've got another idea!!! Why don't you make a list of bugs; which is, after all, the reason you are playing it.

__________When you see a new MMORPG, honestly think to yourself: "Is this game designed to EARN my $15 per month subscription with content, originality, and long-term value, or is it just designed to SCAM me out of $50 when I buy the box at the store with flashy advertising, biased reviews, and empty promises?"
Nope i had no problems, i made a simple comparison. A joke
No need to get sore about it, but since you are obviously sore may i suggest this
and if you have problems with that try this

The Power of 3 Days of beta.... (and it only gets better from here, This is why noobys cant play betas..)
1. ITS LAGGY
A: Its pretty good now on a cable modem I dont have anything lower so i cant test that.
2. PEOPLE KEEP DISAPPERAING
Not anymore the pacth fixed that for now.
3. I'VE CRASHED 4 TIMES ALREADY
I only crashed the frist day because I pushed the game to far for my comp. Your comp must suck.
4. THE WROLD IS EMPTY
Depending on what city you are in. So its like other MMORPGs not all citys have people in every spot.
5. You CAN TALK TO NPC'S BUT ITS POINTLESS
I never tried that but if its pointless then why would you... Its also pointless to roleplay but millions do it. Just a point of the game that was put in for fun..
6. THE MARKET IS WAY OVER PRICED AND DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH USEFUL ITEMS
Its a player econmy therefor the first day of open beta will not have enough (supply and demand buddy).
7. WE HAVE NO STARTER EQUIPMENT
One point i would like fixed as well
8. WE HAVE NO INSTRUCTIONS
Another point but im sure they will fix by retail. Why do you think betas exsit i bet you dont even submit bugs you find.
9. THE NOOB EMAIL IS TOO EASY TO AUTOMATICALLY DELETE OR JUST *DISAPPERS*
Same complaint as 8 common its a beta this is what they want to fix but not until they fix main problems. (server max people, Godmode which sucks because i am a merc.)
10. TRAVELLING IS EASY BUT EVERY CITY HAS THE CAME CRAP, WITH NOTHING TO DO!
Well i think the citys are some what the same but if you explore them you find cool rooms and areas.
11. WTF! THIS IS BAD!
So far you only had 1 problem that wasnt fixed in the past 3 days... I call that very GOOD DEVS!!!
12. CHAT IS HORRIBLE! EITHER PEOPLE DON'T RESPOND OR THEY DON'T SEE THE CHAT!
Well maybe they are noobs just like you trying to find stuff out. Or maybe you flamed them because they disappered on you and crashed 4 times... LOL!!
13. DO WE DO MISSIONS? DO WE MINE? WHAT DO WE DO? WHERE DO WE DO IT?
Yes missions will help you... You do the task your faction is suppose to do... You do it where it needs to be done... Explore the interface (which i admit is kinda sloppy) to find out how and where.
14. THE IRC CHANNEL SUCKS! IT'S A MODERATED CHANNEL SO NOBODY CAN TALK AND ASK QUESTIONS!
Well I didn't need the IRC CHANNELs help to find out the problems i had... and you can ask around elsewhere or in game.
15. THE FORUMS ARE CLOSED! WTF! TOO MUCH TRAFFIC? DAMMIT!
They are back up because traffic settled... I again say this proves you have no idea how to test a game or have never done it before there is almost always delays and problems.
16. I PAID 50CR TO TRAVEL SOMEWHERE, THE GAME CRASHE, AND IM ALL THE WAY BACK IN MY APARTMENT, ARGH!
/sigh this is almost to hard to say... 50,000cr to start with and you cry over 50cr.... OMG!! anyway if you are concerned make a new character and get your precious 50cr back im sure you didnt get anything good with your old char i mean all you did was go in then come back out of the game and FLAME!!
This post is mainly to make everyone who is a beta tester see how stupid nooby beta testers are and to make sure they shut up i hope!

Face of Mankind....
First off, the character selection thing got messed up, so when I pressed "Next" nothing happened so I had to restart. Next, I got in and started in the apartment. Took me like 10 minutes to get all the controls the way I wanted them. When, I needed to ask how to get out of apartment in chat, no one responded. Even in the lobby chat thing! I spent an hour trying to find out how to get out! I *accidently* deleted the mail thing that I got.... No one answered how to get of apartment in chat... Finally, decided to stop and ask here. Found out that the teleporter you stand on is the way out. I don't want to log back in, because I do not want to see those horrible graphics of the people... Plus, scared of the lag.... I got good connections also.

Originally posted by GreatnessI do not want to see those horrible graphics of the people... Plus, scared of the lag....
The graphics are perfectly acceptable when you consider it has real time FPS combat so can't lag too much. Tbh the lag atm is really not bad and will get better as they bring all the servers up, although you are right that there are some weird shit crashes and bugs turning up with some peoples systems though by the looks of it.
They are patching regularly though so I'd come back in a couple of weeks or so and see if they've fixed the big problems.
So they left the strip bars in game... *sigh*... one of the main reasons I quit closed beta. Nudity is going to push their rating up, which may be good as it will mean more older players instead of kids - but I personally will not buy an "M" rated game ever.
At least you don't have to deal with female avatars being topless upon creation! And I am not talking Barbie doll naked.... shame on you artists for putting that extra work into colorizing what no one is supposed to be seeing!!
you wouldnt buy a game cuz of its MA rating? thats weak and uptight.... i wanna flame you and kick some knowledge to you about censorship and artistic direction, but i really dont care anymore... games are based on real world shit, the real world isnt pretty- theres strip clubs, murder, mayhem, love, jeaulosy, hate, beauty, serenity, and everything else...
wish there were some cool chicks playing mmorpgs...
on another note, since i wanted to be a cop and i only get 50k credits i'm going to quit for a week or 2; i'm just going to let the economy or dev team do their thing....i did my part and graced their servers- my job is done.....i'm not going to play a fucked up game and not get paid for it...
basically the game is unplayable as a LED until prices go down...we cant buy guns, pmods, or anything else without creating several accounts and trasferring funds to people, and then back to yur new character- but i seriously have better things to do than sit around on someone's fuckin servers waiting for updates- cuz i know its a beta^^....or if someone gives ya some munny or you get lucky joining the economy and selling some inflated shit..
stay calm, it is still beta!!!
Originally posted by necboneyou wouldnt buy a game cuz of its MA rating?
I tend to avoid multiplayer games with a mature rating too. An MA rating is an asshole magnet.
