HO HO HOYulebot MK2
We just wanted to wish all our fans and customers a very merry xmas and holiday! Thank you so much for supporting us by buying the unfinished game and enabling us to keep working on it and other projects in the future. As long as sales keep up, we should be able to continue cranking out the Data Realms goodness for you to enjoy!

A special thanks to those who have generously chosen the ‘Support Data Realms Edition’ option! Your extra votes of confidence in the final product helps a LOT, both on the money and morale fronts here. We will not forget this!

We have been working on the next build, but with the holidays going on, it’s been a bit slower than expected. Ideally we wanted to push out number 20 by now, but it’s just not done yet. We know you are eager to get more content, but half-baked cookies just don’t taste as good as something done proper, amirite?! (ok, terrible analogy)

Anyway, rest assured that you haven’t seen much yet in terms of what is in store for next year! In the mean time, enjoy the quiet days between now and new year’s…

    Sergei, it’s another name some religions and languages use for god.

    No Hiro, we want to ban your ass for your hysterical rantings on the dev log.

    ““Mac users don’t deserve CC.”

    Fairly sweeping statement there. You sure you don’t just mean Hiro? Mac users aren’t bad people as a group… you make Win32 sound like a fanatic religion.”
    Only bad mac user around here is Hiro.

    Note: Insulting someone now equals “hysterical rantings” according to mental patients such as BURNHELLFIREDEMONSLAY999.

    But anyhow, I just got an intel mac today and I’ll see if I can get a good emulator.

    Think about Bootcamp Hiro since you get an Intel Mac.
    Tell me why Mac Os does have anti-virus if everybody say “there is no virus on Mac”. This is obviously false, it’s just a question of market.
    There is no point to hit less percentage of people using Mac than larger amount with Pc or Linux.
    Both side isn’t better for “creative person” since the tools won’t make the artists.
    By the way, mini-Pc are cheap which isn’t the case of Mac and it’s all i need to know.

    WAIT! What’s this!?

    mac ver?

    I am so damn sick and tired of trying and failing to run CC in an emulator. I’ve gone thru about 5 emulators now just because I’m so obsessed with this game.

    So I’m afraid there’s only one option:
    Those are only some of your idiotic, hysterical rants. I’m going to laugh if you can’t get it to work on an emulator and you come back crying like last time.

  14. Hiro - # January 4th, 2008 at 2:08 pm

    Yes with your latest post, hellfire, I am now certain you are totally clueless as to the definition of hysterical. You must be confusing it with “impatient” and “bored out of mind”.

    And channel 4, you’re idiotic, because there are MAC MINIS with intel core duo that go for $500. Never heard of mini-pcs. Prolly just some broke companies ripping off of apple to make some cash as usual.
    You obviously know nothing about computers if you think the only way to stop viruses is to have some crappy program report finding 10 viruses and not being able to delete any.
    And don’t try that “Oh it has no viruses because it’s such a small percentage” because that’s WRONG. Hackers would see making a virus for mac as the ultimate challenge and would swarm all over it.
    Either way, I still have yet to get a single virus for any of my macs. I have an imac from 1999 that’s still running in perfect condition.

    Minis are just a hardware scale. They are not a rip off of either side. A lot of people make the mistake of thinking Microsoft invented PCs. PCs are just the original computer hardware. I like them more because of how much more you can do with the hardware, I built mine from scratch (gotta love Tiger Direct.)

    It’s true what Hiro says about Macs and viruses. Same reason you get none in Linux too, if you know how to set up the security. It’s not simple, but that’s the spirit of Linux, more power for those who know how to use it. It’s all about blocking the stuff. Once it’s in, you’re screwed.

    Hiro, I think you DO rant too much. BE PATIENT. Data will do a Mac port when he pleases. You don’t need to hound him. It is impractical from a programmers perspective to do a port in application development until the app is done.

  16. ninjarat - # January 5th, 2008 at 5:15 am

    Oh, and by the way Hiro, if you’re trying to be scathing, stop saying stuff like “Prolly just some broke companies”, “you’re idiotic”, and “Oh, and don’t try that…because that’s WRONG.” It just sounds very immature. Don’t argue like an irrational fanboy. You could have made Macs look very good, but as it is you just made yourself look sadly limited.

    holy….. just stop ranting people and try to find a solution to the problem like a porter!
