  1. I wish you and every TLD player good wishes. Its a great game..........................................................
  2. Did I deserve to be banned or warned?
  3. Yeah, they want to allow\disallow my comments to make me seem like a crazy idiot.
  4. People have a right to their opinion.
  5. They seem to want to control conversations in chat.
  6. What, i only got banned once for that?
  7. Is it not about money? Who are you joking? The developer would have you believe that its all about IP rights Since we already proved that form Milton Mailbag #32. Just admit that this thing as about money. Clearly it has nothing to do with IP control since you left it open for months on end;. Admit it has everything to do with money and ppl will partially understand. This might be the worst customer PR i have ever witnessed.
  8. Yeah it is sad. The need for money is blinding though. They could have literally asked for any sort of money from the community and it would have been provided. Its just such a terrible look for the company.
  9. They had control over their intellectual property and everyone knows it.. How many times must I refer to Milton Mailbag #32 They only pulled out when the service went live. If Hinterland just admitted it was about money they could have avoided at tiny fraction of the the consumer displeasure.
  10. This is exactly why people have a problem. They don't want Hinterland interfering in every gaming decision they make. Where is the line? Hinterland decides what sort of PC we play on now? This sort of thing sets a bad precedent. If Hinterland wants or needs money, just ask, I am sure the community would have provided.
  11. For anyone, lets go over why Hinterland pulled the game?
  12. Tell me,; Is this pride over not being asked or is it just blatantly anti-consumer?
  13. @jeffpeng So you wouldn't even see this as an anti-consumer thing by the dev? I get your legalities, because I felt Hinterland had every right to pull the game from the service. What is the problem. Was it money or pride in your humble opinion? Customers don't seem to care, so feel free.
  14. I don't expect to sway you. I am only telling you what the Creative Director, says and how some community members feel about it. If you think the Developer is in the right, continue to support them. If you think you have the right to play where and when you want. then support consumer rights. The fact is: People using GeforeNow have already paid for the game.
  15. Consumer rights are at the heart of this issue. Hinterland would like to dictate what hardware you play your game on, because Nvidia is doing nothing but renting you a PC. Valve\Steam doesn't seem to have a problem with it, because Nvidia isn't selling any games. When you want to play a game Nvidia makes you buy the game from Steam. Nobody loses. Nvidia rents hardware to stream a game to your device. Steam sells the game which developers get a percent based on their Steam contract. Gamers pay Nvidia to rent their hardware so they can stream a game to a screen of their choosing.
  16. What would you consider from the Head of a company? Oh right musings. Nothing more. No indication on which the company might proceed? What HE is doing is anti-consumer and no one should support that kind of behavior even if their product is good. Personally I love The Long Dark. I just can't support anti consumer decisions like this.
  17. I haven't seen any Indie Devs pull out, only the companies that are already known for greed and anti-consumerism. I fear that Raphael thought a bunch of Indie Devs would follow his lead.
  18. Nvidia has asked for permission. What you should be asking is why Hinterland said NO. Is it a source of pride, or is it about money? Customers are upset because it seems like a trivial pride thing, unless its about money. Is it about money??
  19. Frankly, the company needs to hire someone to do PR, and NOT rely on his twitter musings as you would call them. I would call them, the feelings of someone who is way to close to their product and has no idea how his customers feel. Right or Wrong he continues to fight this out on twitter, and its a bad look.
  20. That is up to you and that is why people are upset. Hinterland is trying to dictate, how, when and where they play. If you don't want to use GFN's serivices, you don't have to. If you want to play it in some airport you can say thanks to GFN, because you legally purchased their game. If you don't, what loss is it to the Developer? People are upset because its a basic consumer rights issue. A developer trying to tell us when, where, and how we can play, even if their EULA covers it, IT IS reprehensible.
  21. Geforce Now is nothing more than a PC rental service. Think of it as a way to stream the games you ALREADY OWN to any PC device you want. Say for instance your laptop doesn't meet the specs to play The Long Dark, but you would really like to play it. GFN rents you the hardware, then streams it to your screen. You already bought the game, so what is the problem?
  22. People and the developer seem to be confused on what is actually happening. When you log into GFN, you have to then log into your Steam account. GFN is not letting you play any game you want. They are simply streaming a game you already OWN and is in your Steam library to a remote device. If you have not paid for the game you cannot stream it to your device.
  23. You can log into GFN and you will ONLY be able to play games you have bought through Steam ALREADY. You always have to go through STEAM, EPIC, etc. Its not like some netcafe license which the developer referred to where you log in and play any game you want. You still have to purchase the game through Steam.
  24. I am not sure what you mean by that. You can only "access" The Long Dark if you have already purchased it through Steam. Nobody who logs on to the GFN has the option to play The Long Dark unless they have already purchased it through Steam. Or are you saying as customers we own nothing? That is exactly what people are upset about.
  25. This whole situation is rubbish. Hinterland may say its not about money but it is. If this was only about protecting IP, then why didn't Hinterland remove the game way back in May 2019 when they became aware it was listed on the service?(See Milton Mailbag #32) It was only when GFN started charging money that this whole thing became a problem. Just tell the truth and say you either you want a profit from Nvidia's service or to take your title to an exclusive service. Stop dancing around this stuff about "they didn't ask permission" or "we just want platform providers to ask permission fir
