You know something, whether osiris is right, wrong or just a plain pain in the ass is no reason for developers, contributors, volunteers or whoever to treat him like a piece of dirt. I've read this whole discussion and all I've seen are people like Warhorse, Hawk, barker, Jason and Mr. RoadRunner belittle this guy for his opinions. If he's that much of a pain in the ass why are you people even responding to him? Why not just ignore him? That's the biggest problem with Matrix' version of JTCS. There are a select few who think their opinions matter more than others.
Rene has been around the game longer than it has been in the hands of Matrix. He knows more about what goes on with the game, the modding, upgrades, and Matrix in general.
He waits to sandbag Jason?
Every upgrade or change he stated has already been beaten to death over the last few years. There are things that can be done and things that cannot. He knows that.
Early on he was against Extreme Assault. Later he became for it. Now he belittles Jason by saying that Jason and Matrix are timid about making it not optional? From what I know, during my time playing the game, many players would drop the game if EA weren't optional. It would make a small group that much smaller?
Matrix wishes to garner a small profit on a niche product. CS is one of many that provide a revenue stream to Matrix.
That does not mean that enthusiasts of CS are going to get all their fixes as Matrix showers money upon CS. It means that a group of volunteers work continually on upgrading a very old program. What they can do is limited by time and money.
Rene knows that. He knew it four years ago. He knows it now.
When one or two (or three or four) people mention reality and it seems coarse, it really is not.
Sorry if you are offended by any comments made in this direction. But, facts are facts and will not be changed by hopes and wishes.
