don't suppose there's a Mac client?

Solayce no where in the blog post I provided do do they say "other maintenance," what are you even referring to? Their money is depleted. They themselves stated that. And any future donations for the time being are just going to website costs. They themselves stated that. What "other maintenance" do you want me to reply to?

It is on the front page. While skimming over everything I may have conflated the two, but it is there.

That doesn't mean every dollar is gone.

our initial resources have depleted

Did you even read their blog post?

Did you? If it's all gone, Oh Swami, then what's the "other maintenance"?

It's not that we can't imagine a scenario in which that sort of money is legitimately spent in that little amount of time, it's that it shouldn't be spent that fast in the scenario big brad was in.


Of course I see that point, but we basically have 0 info other than dollars in. My line of reasoning is equally valid at this point. While they mention the website first, they also mention "other maintenance" as well. They also mentioned slowing up development, not stopping. That doesn't mean every dollar is gone. It could. It could also mean they are doing exactly what you suggest and are going as lean as they can with the money that has now slowed up.

damn, after seeing it side by side, the difference is hard to miss between the resolutions. Lenovo y510p it is


word.  good choice i think.  lettuce know how you like it.

I just don't see it as a huge chunk of money. A lot? Sure, but not obnoxious. It's easy to blow that kind of cash up front. Most of them have been working since September of last year without pay, and it's been more like 1.5-1.75 months since the end of the kickstarter. New website/store development and hosting. New rigs for everyone, a rendering cluster, a storage array, then back ups. There are like 10 employees now, so close to 10K in Adobe software alone plus modeling software. Not sure how much full developer licenses of the engine cost per person.

Actually, do the math. Not so crazy really for a AA game. 160,000 x 12 (months) = 1,920,000 x 5 (years) = $9,600,000

feel free to put answers here! I started getting confused once joins became more complicated and now find myself moving towards some DB administration where the knowledge will come in handy.

Well kinda.  I actually forgot all this happened.  Also, go go religion.   :/

How could you forget all the D&D is the devil talk?  My best friend wasn't allowed to play it by his (religious) parents.  We had to sneak the books and dice into his house.   

Also, Mazes and Monsters was the most awesome anti-RPG movie ever:

Fuck yeah Chris Makepeace. Meatballs->My Bodyguard->Mazes and Monsters trifecta!

And, at the high end, the Mac pro gets you 2 - 6 Core processors (I think; 12 sticks in my mind), a ridiculous level of workstation RAM, but also intangibles like Thunderbolt2. The difference between Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 is very noticeable when you need a big pipe. Thunderbolt2 only widens the gap until USB 3.0 expands to Thunderbolt 1 speeds, soonish.

The Mac Pro is expensive because it's crammed full of high level gear. The area where Macs make less sense is their lowest tier stuff - especially since they solder all the shot to the motherboard these days.

Windows 8.1 update (1) is supposedly pretty good. The next big update is supposed to bring the Start menu back by default; confirmed by MS. I've seen pictures that look decent. The update should be free when it comes out and you can configure the current update to do the same thing - looks wise - it will just be default in the next one.

I don't know about game compatibility. I used a Windows 8 VM for PowerShell development and was happy with it, mostly. The original, base, release was a dysfunctional change because it was so different, but I still learned the basics of moving around pretty quick and with classic shell (mentioned above) I got it to a functional level.

Nads I get like 122meg down and 12 up when I'm hardlined into the modem.  The wifi is a different story however.  I seem to at best get 70, and at worst (as is the case with this computer in my back room) I get 40

because wireless is half duplex and advertised speeds are under ideal conditions, i.e. very little distance from transmitter to receiver.

I am glad Kors has time to look at this. He's my default healer centric guide to gaming and is pretty spot on with his healer-reasoning :smitten:

They are mostly just clones of each other with a different map and textures.

That's where the $$$ comes in. Any nerd with gumption could probably hammer out the game code in a few years, but it's the art you sink your money into.

reapply paste - yes.

How's the power supply? All cables plugged in correctly, orientation-wise?
