Quote from: Xyphoe on 13:50, 16 January 22If you're referring to me being "disingenuous" I actually take quite offence to that.That's also a very one sided view of your Antstream experience that isn't necessarily the same for everyone else. Also saying it hasn't improved in terms of bug fixes, controller issues and server lag is just wrong. It has done - because I've been streaming it every week for over a year now and have witnessed the (albeit slow) improvement. But improved it has. Is it perfect? No. Never said that.The reply further above that is wrong about "everything else is a paid service".If you're logging in for the very first time because you want to play this new game when released... it's not charging you a penny to do so. You can jump in and play for as long as you want.I've never paid a dime to Antstream, and on my account I log in and can play as many games as I want. It only uses 'gems' for tournaments, challenges, and other special events. If you don't believe me go watch a VOD of one of my Twitch streams to see it in action and me navigating the interface eg -
twitch.tv/videos/1261826429 which was last Tuesday.They never gave me any special account, hell - they hadn't even heard of me until around August/September last year prior to Bug's Quest being released.I am however hearing now that some people have accounts where gems are required to play games. Some don't have to. I don't know then what's going on with some people's accounts and what Antstream are doing there.However it is clear you get given a big bunch of 'gems' then at least when you sign up. And more can be easily earned. If you're not happy about it being 100% free then you have your emulators.I get it, that some people have a real 'issue' with a retro gaming streaming service. And I've never said it's perfect.I would have hoped though that we would have been a bit more supportive at finally getting some Amstrad on there. And no-one is holding a gun to your head to go sign up for Antstream.And any issues are a mute point when you'll be getting a .cdt/.dsk file shortly after, again for free, with more content.
Quote from: yellowbelly on 01:38, 17 January 22im surprised you took that out of context shaun, as the exact sentance before it was written was "They are just being racist because im welsh lol" but then that wouldnt suit your need to fan the flames. but seriously i am done with this community after only a couple of interactions with it.oh no worries @reidrac thanks for clearing up your comment.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 11:48, 11 January 22My sentiments exactly. Anything with those two words in it can get in the fucking bin as far as I'm concerned.
Quote from: Carnivius on 12:57, 17 January 22I dunno. I've read the whole thread and I thought this comment was hugely disrespectful to the game and those working on it. Saying because it's an Antstream exclusive, the game can go in the f-ing bin? Harsh. I'd feel quite insulted by that if I was one of the people putting hours into developing a game just to have it so rudely and aggressively dismissed like that.
Quote from: Gryzor on 15:17, 17 January 22This was NEVER an Anstream argument. What the actual fuck, man, you may like Antstream, I do NOT. Am I not entitled in my opinion? You brought up Dandanator as a counter-example (Jesus wept), but even there if someone says "I'm disappointed this is a Dandanator-only release", they are, of course, 100% entitled to say that. I don't, because I do have one so the more releases, the merrier, but so what.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 15:14, 17 January 22That's your opinion, and you're quite entitled to it. Hardly disrespectful though. It's not an Amstrad game. It's an Antstream game converted to Amstrad!I'm not a fan of paywall emulators, making games exclusively for them and passing it off as an Amstrad game didn't sit well with me. But I guess that's the price I pay for speaking my mind. Some will appreciate it, others won't. That's why it's called a discussion forum.
Quote from: Gryzor on 16:06, 17 January 22Dude, can you calm down? I was referring to the post you quoted, and if you think that someone talking very calmly is treating you like than idiot then idk. I'll sincerely apologize and shut up and won't address you again because frankly, I don't know how else to go about it. Sorry.
Quote from: Carnivius on 15:46, 17 January 22It was absolutely disrespectful. And if it's 'converted to Amstrad' then how is it not an Amstrad game? Are arcade ports not Amstrad games since they were 'converted to Amstrad'? Have you got some weird gatekeeper rules going on there because you might need to explain them to us so we can all follow your CPC version of the ten commandments.
QuoteAnd then you try act victim with that 'price I pay for speaking my mind' like you one of those idiot celebs worried they're getting 'cancelled' because of stupid stuff they said. You belittled and were rude about the work of another user on here with that initial comment so no wonder they got upset about it.
Quote from: EgoTrip on 15:40, 17 January 22My position on Antstream is that any platform that can broaden the appeal of retro games and systems is a good thing. Nobody is forcing anyone to use it, and if someone creates a game for a retro (or any) system, it is up to them how they release it, whether its free or paid for or exclusive to a particular platform. Nobody is entitled to it.
