From: The Briar Patch Nebula
Remember also everyone.....
Distant Worlds, and many other computer video games, plays across operating systems of
various characters and versions (WinXP, Vista, Win7, etc.). It would take thousands of
hours to playtest the game to come even 'close' to bug/error free operation across all
the different machine OS's and configurations. Not to mention, or forget, that Matrix is
a very small company and Elliot is only one person. Even our beta testing team is small
(but as efficient as we can be to Elliot). So please, understand that yes, there can be
systems that run the game with minimum or no issues/crashes (I can testify to this). As
well as there can be some systems, due to configuration/memory/other issues that may not
get past the splash screen without a major problem.
Nevertheless, that is what the Tech Support forum, my fellow Beta Testers, and the serious
players and modders are for. To join together in harmony to assist each other in a forum
community setting to share in one of the greatest 4X space strategy games ever. Distant
