SC, if the demo is done but people complaining will take time from your work on the patch or BCM add-on or whatever you are working on then don't release it. But if the patch will be done with no problems by the time the game ships and you have plenty of time to finish other stuff then release the demo and ignore the complaints, just tell them "IT'S A DEEEEEMMOOOO, in the game everything works like it should".

By privately, I meant the people on this forum. I think we're all on the same page in terms of honesty (at least the established members), so I think distributing it to just those people woundn't hurt anything.

EDIT: Oh, and JJ, contrats on your next post.

I don't foresee any new critical additions to the 1.0.01 patch actually, apart from this CD issue.

I would however like to make the NPC marine's a tad smarter (since its not an FP game, I didn't focus too much on a lot more states as I do for ships) but thats not high priority. Getting mp up to speed is. But by the same token, it would be pointless releasing an mp patch if there are still lingering bugs in sp. In fact, they could prove to even more annoying.

And apart from that, the mp patch is not something I'm just going to release to the public like a regular patch. It will have to undergo stringent performance, play balance and gameplay testing via the int/ext Beta testers before it is declared fit to be released to the public. Which means, there is NO chance that I'll release it before Jan, as I DO plan on taking off in Dec on a much needed vacation.

Well, I've got lots to keep me busy until BCM arrives (AvP2, Civ3, U9, Arcanum, Aquanox) but... hell, release it anyway! If it's really that risky, release it privately as, say, a "test demo"... or somesuch thing. Any random idiot who decides to DL it will understand THAT, I think. But since you went off and let us all know that it exists: RELEASE SOMETHING!!!! AHHhHhhHhhhHHHhh!!!!

very cruel indeed... But you could always put a screen saying ATTENTION: if your having problems with this demo do blah blah blah blah. DO NOT do blah blah blah. If you DO DO blah blah blah then that will result in blah blah blah blah blah.

see? isnt that simple?

Oooh, the newbies say it's cruel! Heh, those newbies haven't been here long enough to see what cruel is.

I say release it. It's more stable than the other demos. It's not like we're gonna complain.

i really don't know why you guys are saying fix, when even if the SC releases it we could help him test it and find the problem faster, just release saying that here is the known bug, and like i said if someone is to stupid to read that they are too ignorant to join these boards, that simple

We have to ask ourselves, how long will it take to fix it? Also, if SC hadn't accidently discovered this, I wonder how long it'd go until sombody noticed?

Bottom line is we all need a fix NOW. Once The finished game is in our sweaty palms none of us are going to care about another demo. But right now...............

It depends. Some won't be able to have the game as soon as it's released for different reasons (like me), and those that don't know about BCM yet will use the 3rd to make their choice.
