  • Foundry 42 Financials Released

    So Everything (!) in there came ultimately from Intel, not CIG. 

    Just lol Erillion, just fraking lol

    You're always asking people for proof but now you seem so unwilling to provide any yourself...

    When you constantly have the same posters year after year attacking the project and it's backers with the constant "scam" or "imminent collapse" acusations, hyperbolic dramas, obfuscations and wishing for the game to crash I think it's only normal that people call them out for it.

    Specialy when both the company and the game keep progressing at a steady rate and delivering on their milestones with more and more people joining everyday.
    Maybe get some of these people in here so that the same three people don't have to defend it for years and years?

    Perhaps the shills can ask CIG for some backup now that they have $46 million for marketing....

    Man, this is all so stupid.

    Erillion's tries to revise history, gets asked for a bit of proof and he goes off the rails while trying to blame other people for rehashing an old topic.

    Here's the thing Erillion, if you hadn't made your spurious claim no-one would feel the need to pull you up on it.

    Now you're posting tweets as though they back up your side of events despite there being other tweets that directly counter it. Talk about digging yourself a hole, just get off the whole "CIG are beyond criticism" stance and bow out gracefully for once in your life....

  • Crytek Filing Lawsuit Against CIG

    Erillion said:
    In one of the previous documents it was said that CIG did offer something to CryTek, but CryTek did not want it. Presumably they wanted more. After CryTek refused to accept it, it may be that CIG stopped offering it (because CryTek would not accept it anyway). And with the switch to Lumberyard there was no longer a reason to offer anything to CryTek.

    CIG agreed to send bug fixes. Not code changes. I assume CryTek expected to get all the code changes "for free"  (well, CryTek may have assumed that the (presumably ?) low (?) buyout price that CIG paid for the whole code was basically the price to get the code changes ... but it is not explicitly mentioned in the contract, so CIG did not feel obliged to send it ... which pissed of CryTek).  Sounds like the three brothers thought they outsmarted CIG ... and thought wrong.


    Have fun

    I remember reading that CIG had offered something but Crytek felt the way it was presented was completey useless to them and asked for it to be made available in a way that was useful, then they heard nothing again regarding code until after the suit started whereupon CIG responded rather petulantly about it.

    Bug fixes are code changes :) A bug exists because the code does something in a way the developer has not forseen, so to fix a bug requires a change to the code... hence a code change.

    Perhaps Crytek don't expect to get all the code changes for free, perhaps they just want what both sides agreed to, perhaps the 3 brothers weren't trying to outsmart CIG and are just pissed that they feel CIG reneged on the terms despite getting a license at a bargain price etc.

    I like how anyone who threatens CIG in any way is made out to be the villain, even in the absence of facts.
