if the devs/PR's are planning to release new versions, than i highly recommand
that the updates should be a huge file, instead of small little tiny patches,
i find small patch updates not really userfriendly, cause you have to figure out where to put it and stuff, not that i dont know how... but not allot of people arent so familiar with these type of installation,

i would really recommand big files only, and you should also be able to install the new version/file with out reinstalling the old version/file, and without any problems/errors, that would be way more userfriendly.

049 is not a patch, like AA2.7 which is also not a patch. The reason? Because both 049 and AA2.7 are completely different games from their predecessors. The program structure graphics, everything is different although they reuse a few things but all recompiled in a new way making them incompatible with older version.

Yeah, Dragon... 0.49 is a completely new install, not a patch.

I think you should offer to help them with their coding, skinning and modeling.
I always see you telling TT what they should and should not do, but I never see you do anything from them other than whine. How about being productive and less of a back seat driver? Its not like you payed for the game or anything, and its not like anyone else is paying for it. If they can't understand it then that's their problem, not your or anyone else's.

Definetely right! its a free game, they gave it to us for free without charge. lets just appreciate what we have now. From time time to giving suggestions is okay but complaining about the smallest most incompetent details isnt helping anyone.

They could use extra income if it comes in constantly to get better bandwith for both websites or even run official servers that are free of no0bs and lamers.

better bandwidth so when .59 takes a year and is finally released, they won't blow up?

Recommend is spelt recommend.
Don't be afraid to use a ' now and again.
User friendly isn't one word.
Why don't you ever use caps?
Why do you only use commas and no periods?
I is always capitalized. "I went to the store", "You and I have a lot in common".
Allot isn't that way to spell a lot.
There are many things to address, but I don't know where to start.

but i never said 49 is a small patch, im talking about the upcomming release,
diane said shes gonna release a patch or something,

i find small little patches not really userfriendly, i'd prefer a big updates with tons of bugs fixed and major improvements,

but... patches arent actually that bad, but it has to be downloaded by an auto updater, so you dont have to put the files one the tcetest maps manually its all auto,

it would be sweet if there is an auto live updater, evry time you open tcetest on your desktop, than the first thing that should appear is something like this:

it automaticly checks new updates/patches/maps ect. ect.


P.S. im not whining nor complaining, this is called "helping the devs improve the mod even better so yall can enjoy it more..."

We cant afford to keep an automatic ftp service like that. Sure big time MMO companies can but we cant. Not even BF2 does that. AA does however but that is because the Americans are paying for it in taxes.

The k2network is an mmo company... I dont recall them being ftp providers but it will still cost money.
