Yeah it would be a shame if the game had to be released 6 minutes later because Jim stopped to write on the forums.

He doesn't code 24/7, yet you are making a comment like he would have to decide between working on the game or posting. Clearly as Markus demonstrates well with OOTP, it is possible to have an active presence on the forums and release a top notch game.However, it doesn't appear that type of practice will be adopted by Jim now that he's over with this company. Oh well.

October to February is a long time believe it or not. Is it really a lot to ask for a screenshot or an update after four months (if we count February) and basically a year of development?

That's basically what I see in this thread.

As a software developer, I often have to give daily updates to my superiors on my progress. Just saying.

Ah, so he can spend 5 minutes typing an update is what youíre saying.

I think this boils down to us being excited, enthusiastic, crazy kids. We can't wait for this game to come out. We have been waiting a very long time for a game like this to come out. I have been around since the beginning and unfortunately, Jim only does things his way. He isn't going to change. The silence to me says the game is getting close. If it wasn't close, if it wasn't coming out until next football season, I think someone would say something. So I am going to continue to check daily hoping I see some good news shortly. If it doesn't come out for awhile, well then I will still preorder.

Your superiors aren't your customers, so that is an irrelevant point.

This has unfortunately been something I’ve become used to with OOTPD. Engage with your community, guys. It takes a few minutes to simply engage with us every few weeks, and not leave a rabid fan base in the cold. I don’t buy the “this
Is the way he is” stuff. You’re not some mad genius working on the cure for cancer, you’re a guy trying to sell a game people want. Don’t take that for granted, and show some appreciation for the community.

Here, how about this? I'll give an update:


Project is going well, we are still meshing FOF code to OOTP's interface so no screen shots yet. We've been working hard on this. We still don't have a release date, but as soon as we have one we will tell you.

That's basically what you'll get with an update.


Look, when they have a real update, then they will update us. No offense to anyone, but how 'bout we all take a giant chill pill. It will come when it comes.

I don't think it's fair or accurate to lump the entirety of OOTPD together on this. On the contrary I feel Markus and all the developers of OOTP are some of the best in the business about engaging with fans. Markus is constantly on the forums answering questions and getting involved in discussions.

This thread really needs to be closed. It has gotten completely off point from the origination of the thread, which was to welcome Jim to the OOTP family. I'm (at least) unsubscribing.

I'm gonna go play the latest version of FOF. Jim has been delivering for over two decades supporting a quality product, and Markus and team have done the same. I trust them all to deliver it when it's ready. But on the same token, it's good to know people are super rabid to give away their money and just want to rush someone to stuff their pockets. I'm sure that's not gonna be a sentiment anyone here minds.

But agreed, this thread should be closed.

Yeah, the thread has run its course. People have made their points and no one has had their mind changed. Closing this and the other ones where folks are just discussing the next update (or lack thereof). Looks like they'll give us another update when they think its appropriate, and not before then.

Angry Potential buyers do not deserve information it would seem

Both threads requesting additional info or updates about this game have been closed. Obviously OOTP does not think their customers and potential customers deserve any information on a game they may want to purchase. Well it made my mind up, I just purchased the DK Sports football game and certainly will not buy a game from a company that refuses to answer their customers questions !

Is this some kind of inverted psychology experiment? I am happy to remain patient while I play FOF8, not a big deal for me.
