I want to record some marital disputes and breaking of crockery for Marcuria. :P

It would be made up. ;) But I can contribute a real baby crying. Or "talking". :P But that's a bit... dunno... hard to fit into the game.

Would we get into too much trouble if we used Marty McFly's "Hey, I'm walkin' here!" line, I wonder? :P

If it's limited to our own computer, we can put anything we want in there! One of my favourite things was modding the original DOOM with samples from Return of the Jedi, The People Under The Stairs and Blackadder. Cue hilarious quotes like if a door was locked C3PO would say "I don't think they're going to let us in, R2", plus there was "I'm tired of f***in' around!" and "Don't worry, Bob. He used to try to kill me too." All the brown monsters did plaintive Chewbacca calls as they ran about in the distance. Brought a tear to my glass eye :P

We can of course even include some original TLJ and DF music for our personal selections - 'April Dub' blasting from a passing car perhaps ?

Aww man, not even a musician (in music class in school I basically had to invent my way out of abject failure with something I called 'the chord contraption' xD ) but the idea of the community being this involved made me very happy and excited. It feels like someone's just dropped a worm into a barrel of apples :( [A worm they caught with some sticky candy, obviously :P ]

I wouldn't mind to have my ass bitt—

 

I mean, YEAH, NO, OF COURSE. Brisk, chilly, late afternoon walks in the countryside! Manly activities! Woodchopping!

Ignoring the ethics of asking for free music in a competition, which is worth discussing in public at the very least,

 

Today I learned that a few assholes shouting loud enough and making false accusations matter more than us backers.

You misunderstood then. The problem weren't a few assholes shouting, RTG knows how to deal with random assholes. The problem was that people from the music industry got into it, got angry, and it could potentially ruin both current and future business relations for RTG, and it was threatening the future careers of people who worked at RTG. They decided that they could not in good consciousness risk that, and so they pulled the plug on the competition.

If it had just been the usual with the internet screaming hate for no reason, they would have ignored it.

Well, let's hope you learned this today, then:

Read everything before you jump to conclusions. Ask before you throw around angry comments.

 

What you did there is what made this happen in the first place; people assuming the worst and saying their piece before understanding the whole situation.


My Twitter & Instagram & Twitch ... for your viewing pleasure.

False.

 

If you "caught up" and read everything, you should know that this is bullshit. We're never afraid of standing up for what we believe in, and our backers matter a lot more than "a few assholes".

 

The situation was a lot more complex than you seem to think, and I believe we've stated that many times, in the various channels, so you should really have "caught up" on that as well.

 

We believe our community has turned this around to become a very positive thing, and it's also resulted in us incorporating some music modding support into the game, so there really is no reason to keep whipping up controversy around this. We did what we had to do for many reasons, none of which had to do with assholes shouting louder or us neglecting the wishes of our community.

 

The only thing such a post accomplishes is creating more animosity, more controversy, more angry rants, more stress for the team, more confusion for the community and less — much less! — focus on the game and on enjoying the positive vibes here on the WORLD'S GREATEST FORUM.

 

So, yeah, stop it.

So you joined the forums specifically so you could post that?  And then didn't bother to read the 13 other pages in this topic before posting?  Shame on you!!  *sputtering indignantly*  'Nuf said!

I wasn't accusing you or RTG of anything. I was making a sad statement about how some outsiders have the ability to shut down a fan-wanted competition like that without any consideration of the nature of the contest. I understand the amount of pressure being put on you guys, and the way I worded it did make it seem like I was blaming you for cowering. I apologize. I just wish that outsiders didn't have far more leverage over our own backed project than we do. That's not a statement against you, it's a statement that this is very screwed up.

 

If people wanted to boycott these guys, it may just be because that now feels like the only leverage we have against them.

Well, that's ironic then. Sorry we misunderstood you. Let's all hug and be friends :)
