Complaining about a known bug.
The fact that it is a known bug does NOT make up for the fact that it exists in the first place. This is a game some people paid hundreds of dollars for and waited many *extra* months for. This is a good example of why Elite Dangerous is going to be a better game in the end: It was already under development so that backers got the game playable and early, that helps PR and encourages developers. Also, the developers are focusing much more on the gameplay rather than commercials and extremely high goals.
Last but not least, the game not working well on Crossfire is known to the gaming community, but that does not make it acceptable. Everyone reviews games with different hardware; this author is doing us a favor by warning us.
The SLI bug is well known, and has been well documented in the forums.
Again, I stand by my opinion that the author is either lazy, disingenuous, or was intentionally commissioned to write inflammatory click bait.
I will not bother returning to this site, as it has proven that it is worthless.
hmmm a 42 year old man with such vitriol should be commended I suppose...? :S
A week to not find a known bug that 5 minutes in the official forum nets you a fix?
Lazy, sloppy reporting.
He spoke with RSI. They weren't able to solve the problems he had at the time. Doesn't sound that easy to fix to me.
Seriously, man. You wrote an article under the guise of a journalist, did zero research, then proceeded to post an inflammatory article. You owe some people an apology.
Jules doesn't owe anyone an apology. He spent a long time working on this, reached out directly to RSI to get quotes and understand their position, and continued to edit it over a week after I first commissioned it. That is absolutely the correct way to do things.
We wanted to see how good the Star Citizen alpha was, as backers and fans. Right now, we would not recommend anyone buy into Star Citizen. In the future, we hope that will change.
no, you haven't.
Ah, I see what you mean. Looks like I may have been banned on the Star Citizen subreddit.
Yeah, the moment I saw this article I knew there'd be an outrage. The Star Citizen-community is the most defensive and easily angered gaming community I have ever encountered, and I've been playing games since the eighties. At least you didn't suggest that people should maybe have a look at Elite: Dangerous, because then shit would really hit the fan.
(I'm a backer too)
Whats's to be defensive about?
1. Author writes a click bait article showcasing known bugs with resolutions already posted in the Star Citizen forums.
2. Whines about not being able to access the forums through google. Not game related, but I had no issues finding answers to his issues searching the forums directly.
3. He complains about not being able to eject in an Aurora, a ship that does not have an ejection seat.
4. The author then posts this to the Star Citizen subreddit using his own name, then deletes the account when his asshattery gets called out.
Well done, author.
