  3. Mooseral - # April 25th, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    This is reason I hate April 1st, tons of gags that cause minor inconvenience instead of generating humor of any form. Hell I stopped paying attention to CC so long ago I’m replying 25 days after this post, that’s how much I don’t care anymore about a project that appears to be dead.

    I stopped paying attention to CC so long ago that I’m replying 25 days after this post too.
    Because I don’t care…
    I really don’t…
    I still don’t care.

  7. Airburst - # April 26th, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    I care.

    Also, if b24 doesn’t have new crabs, I will be disappointed…

  8. Endahs - # April 26th, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    spam Data’s twitter/email/facebook etc.
    thats how you fix things…
    I mean why stop caring when you can get a response relatively quickly by not ever leaving him alone! 😀
    It shows that we love him.

    Vant onlein pleh…. An update would be nice. Hell, even an official announcement announcing that this game is dead and all the developement has stopped. Anything.

  10. gismo - # April 28th, 2010 at 6:30 am

    oh we wouldent want that woudent we

  11. Stophe - # April 28th, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    What about a big marching? Or we could blow buildings to get the government’s attention (and Data’s).
    Or hold each others hand and forming the characters “B24” with enough people to be seen from outer space!

  12. CrazyMLC - # April 28th, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Go to Phoenix
    Find Data

  13. AttackOfFlamingPigs - # April 29th, 2010 at 5:32 am

    I know I’m late but
    That was sarcasm.

  14. Yay - # April 29th, 2010 at 10:14 am

    This sucks… The only thing that will make me play CC again is a new release or… a new map from weegee!

  15. funnyguy3D - # April 29th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    you guys bitch too much, i mean there are hundreds of mods to play, and really people do what they do, it’s still a fun mod even with the bugs and stuff, so quit your whining and Dl crobotech! lol

  16. tons0phun - # April 30th, 2010 at 10:43 am

    So…how goes development?

  17. lafe - # April 30th, 2010 at 2:41 pm

  18. Tomaster - # April 30th, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    Hey, here’s a new idea that totally hasn’t been said before!
    Why don’t you all stop bitching?

  19. lafe - # May 2nd, 2010 at 8:27 am

    data should replace the link with the one to enforcers multiplayer room.

  20. Airburst - # May 2nd, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    Data should hire me to do the blog.
    At least I would update it.

  21. dabingo - # May 4th, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    What makes him believe that you won’t turn into Weasel, Airburst?

  22. Duh102 - # May 5th, 2010 at 7:02 am

    With great power comes great weasel.

    Data i hope you realise how much you are hurting me

  25. tons0phun - # May 6th, 2010 at 2:55 pm


    It’s been about three months since a real update.
    And almost a year since the release of B23.
    [Twice as long as the period between B22 and B23]

    How goes development of B24?
    Will it be the last build?

    Are there changes being made to the editors?
    How is gameplay being balanced or adjusted?
    Will there be any changes to the in-game interface/buy-menu during combat?

    How is B24 coming along?

    This is almost impossible, unless the terrains are undestructible or very small.

    How much bandwitdh do you think will be necessary to (in theory) play a multiplayer game over internet on horiz land for example? I think lots of MB/s would be necessary. To play @ 60fps, at least 350MB/s (not Mb) according to my simple calculations.

    It will need to transmit a large ‘image’ of the current terrain, including information of physics on particles (lots of particles) and also all the actual action like explosions, objects locations and physics (speed, ang speed, acceleration).

    Cortex command defies the bandwidth of the installed RAM (ramprocessor) on a high-end machine… i think it would be almost impossible to make it playable over ip. (unless limiting the max amount of props to a very boring number, and making the scenarios either undestructible or incredibly small, and also, disallowing those map-wipe bombs and etc. so it doesn’t need to trasmit the entire map, only the modified regions. However, i doubt someone will be such a genius (>200 IQ) to make something like this.

    The easy way to make CC actually multiplayer, is something like multi-head play, supporting 2 mouses, 2 keyboard and 2 monitors and using all the 4 cores of the modern processors and SLI.

    Even on LAN I think it would be very very hard to make a multiplayer gameplay.

    While frequent updates reminding us that you’re still alive are great, and I’d love even a one or two sentence summary of what you’re currently working on every week or so, you guys need to chill out.

    The game will get done, perhaps in the next year or even two years, but it will be finished. For now, just be patient, get on the livechat, download some mods, and check out some other games while you’re waiting.

    Remember, the longer it takes for work to be done, the more work gets done during that time period. Happy P.E.D. day, all. =D

  28. ShiroTheSniper - # May 7th, 2010 at 5:56 am

    @Woose: This is true IF any work is done… and we see nothing about it: we need updates.

  29. lafe - # May 7th, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    Why arnt u guys on the forum. We could use your kind .
