    Sounds a tad familiar....

    As far as the defence of the defendant is concerned, at no stage do they deny there was effectively an agreement to provide the Vega Plus. Their defense is very much on the basis of, 'were going to produce it, hes going to get it, its just a bit late'. There was an estimated delivery date of September 2016.

    The randomness isn't an issue....

    It's that ecploration is little more than going from one system you have visited umpteen times in the past to another system you have visited umpteen times in the past, seeing the same stars and planets and moons with all that is really changing being the contents of the chest/encounter/anomaly that is randomly generated

    Put that pitchfork away. Read the other article, it says Sincliar supported the endeavour.

    I must admit that even after backing a few successful kickstarters and receiving the rewards I am becoming wary of backing projects nowadays.

    This may not be a popular opinion, however, I think there needs to be better regulation of crowdfunding with protection for backers. Maybe projects like Star Citizen, which everyday is looking more certain to fail, will cause Governments to bring in regulations or laws for protection, especially as the failure of Star Citizen will result in a huge fallout.

    It's good that Rob Morton won the case against Retro Computers Ltd. however, it's just the start on what is needed in my opinion.

    Obviously with any form of crowdfunding it's a gamble whether the product is delivered in the way that it was described and people should be ok with that providing they don't receive a mobile game when they were expecting a PC game. What I dislike more than anything about CIG's approach is that they won't commit to anything. Nobody seems to know when anything is going to be done and their style of crowdfunding basically amounts to nothing more than 'give us your money'. It's an awful way to treat your customers if you ask me.

    Keep in mind the original 48k Spectrum was not exactly a shining light with respect to delivering on schedule. If I remember correctly, my dad cancelled our order about 2 months after it was originally meant to deliver. Instead we got a Dragon 32

    To be honest cyber laws and regulations are in dire need of an overhaul anyway. While governments and companies participate and try to keep up in the "IT-war" the surrounding laws for the general population are often outdated or not sufficient enough. As always the common peasant (aka consumer) at the bottom is the victim in all this relying on protection by proxy and hoping that laws cover any eventualities which often they dont.

    He's in the UK so it was a foregone conclusion, Retro Computers should never have let it get that far. The article mention they represented themselves which is probably why they made such a mess of it.

    Regulation is sorely needed, right now people can make whatever wild claim they like which is the perfect breeding ground for scams.

    Out of curiosity, is there anything going on with the game outside of the engine lawsuit and all? Where is the 3.0 release at nowadays?

    It's fallen off it's chair, it can't get up, and it can't even reach it's beer

    It's just too frustrating to test at the moment, as the same inevitable bugs have not been addressed yet, performance is a big stinky, and there is very, very little to actually do. Worryingly, they had a large segment on Orgs in their latest video that gave the impression that dozens or perhaps more commando's would be able to work together in large-scale instances in-game. Their implementation has a heart attack and falls over with under a dozen simultaneous players - and without a lot of rework they are going to be completely unable to fix this.

    Well currently there is 3.01 Version of SC and its basically the same as older 3.0 except there are few minor fixes.....apparently now some missions are possible to finish properly,tho game still works like crap if you are not connected on the "fresh"server,and if you are then you can expect to hit that magical 30 Fps .........
