Why do you act like such an obnoxious twat really, you don't even understand what this did despite Moeck very clearly pointing it out for you. ONE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO INSTALL THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE GAME TO BE ABLE TO PLAY. It's a major nuisance that shouldn't ever really happen, and I'm speaking especially for the mod developers side, not the player, even though it's still a pain in the ass. You're a fool if you don't see the patch for what it was, and you obviously don't understand how this hurts the modding community.
Defending what happened is simply ignorant. Maybe you should go develop a mod yourself and have your work conditioned by random patches.
I'm being unpleasant, yes. You guys however are being unreasonable and horribly entitled.
One should not have to install the previous version to be able to play? How so? Where is it written? Which law states this as a fact? Is it the same law that says "Mods shall remain free!" and "Modders shall not sell out!" ?
It's a "major nuissance"? Goodness, I wonder what your life is like.
It's unfortunate, but I'd hardly call it anything but a minor annoyance.
Believe it or not, I've been a modder for a while now, dealt with new patches and stuff. Just saying.@Barabas:
Why should we wait because someone fixes things he shouldn't have broken in the first place?
Because you don't have a choice? Sorry, but not everyone out there does everything he does for the sole benefit of your happiness. Is it unfortunate what happened? Yes. Could it have been prevented? Yes.
Is it a major distaster that will do real harm to anyone? No. Of course not.
Taleworlds are busy making MnB2 I imagine. I'm quite sure they're not happy about the current state of affairs, nor are they jumping for joy at how the DLC turned out to be. Heck, I don't know Vincenzo, maybe he IS a real *******. I don't know.
What I know is - you guys take this way too seriously and you're refusing to see how insignificant of an event it is. You've been on edge for two weeks and continue to hype each other into a rage over this ridiculous non-issue.
I'm not defending Vincenzo, I don't know him. I'm not defending NW, I don't play it.
I'm simply calling for reason, as it is sorely missing here.
I'm not gonna argue here, but for many people something 'simple' as installing different versions of a game is not that easy to get right. Especially those that are used to Steam.
Yes, I know. Oh gods, I wish I didn't know how little some people know of computers they insist on using. Again, unfortunate, but it'll sort itself out eventually.
The thing I really don't understand is why Taleworlds let some external team patch up Warband.
I do. They're working on MnB2. The Squirrel guys made the DLC, so they know best how it works and what's needed. Yes, we'd have probably benefited from closer cooperation, no doubt.
This is not just based on the patches themselves but also on the comments from the Squirrels like: "It works fine on our DLC, we're not responsible for Native." implying that they don't give a shit about native or any other mods.
I hope TW will get on it eventually. Until then, there's always rolling back. When we're not all worked up and waiting for a miraculous patch, I'm sure this will become a reasonable option for the majority of players and modders.
Can this thread just be closed? It's a useless waste of forum space and at least the simpleton has already been answered all the reasons why this isn't okay... Which should be obvious to anyone but w/e.
As it doesn't break any forum rules (I hope), I'd rather you wouldn't rob me of my freedom of speech. Feel free to insult me for no good reason at all, while giving zero arguments supporting your ridiculous whining.
