You're a day late and a dollar short on this one, my friend.

Damn the guy for wanting to make some money, huh?



Wisconsin Badgers: 2-1 (Well...Obviously...Casino Management Majors make good football players....)


Minnesota Vikings: 2-0 (That's a bit more like it. Good game all around...Though they shouldn't have let Chicago get their hopes up.)

How was he making money beforehand if he was giving away Extreme Warfare Revenge for free?

So he is not allowed to have a real job while he works on a free game for thousands of people? What kind of reasoning is that?

Why has he disappointed in you? Because his hard work and effort from a simple hobby, has giving him a great chance to expand his skills and make a living off of something he does for fun?

Im sorry, I bet you were looking at yourself and your answer would be "no bcuz I have 2 pay 4 it now"

Adam owes us nothing, he has spent countless hours of his free time to make these sims, and often does it under pressure of the so often ungreatful community this game has brought upon.

How many people do you know that have spent hundreds of hours of their free time working on a project like EWR?

I think many people in the EWR community are very selfish.

If you don't want to pay for EWR then don't get the new version when it comes out. Play with 4.0 which would of been the last version anyways.

He ShouldGive the People that own EWR 3.0 and 4.0 a Discount then By $5.Your System will go through a check to see if you have EWR 3.0 and 4.0 and if you do,you get a $5 dollar discount.
But only for the people that buy on the net !!!!!!!!!

Uh, as one of his best friends on the net, I can safely say that Adam worked at Wrox Publishing until the company went under liquidation in the spring. He's been out of work since then. So technically, from the springtime to now, when both 3.0 and 4.0 were being worked on, he was making jack all as far as finances go. And call me crazy, but I think someone with a university degree in computer science wouldn't want to settle for work at a KFC. But that might be just me.

Wait, do you really think that it's ok to tee off on a guy who gives you free games?

I'm about ->...........<- this close to banning you.

Do you not realize the utter stupidity of this statement?

First of all, why should someone get a discount just for owning something that is available FREE on the net?

Second of all, do you realize how hard and pointless it would be to check if your computer had ewr installed just so they can say "ok, you get 5 bucks off". Not to mention that this is pointless (see above)

EWR is one of the greatest programs in the world. I'm enjoying it very, very much. With such said, I'm looking forward to the next game in the series, and I' sure that it will be very much worth the purchase price.

Ryland obviously worked really hard to make the program, and what does he get for it? Peckerheads like this dillhole (read: Stahl) complaining that Adam signed on with a .400 to develop and sell his games. What's wrong with wanting to make money? If you have a gift, isn't it a good idea to make some money at it?

Oh well.

Thanks to this thread I am now aware of EWR 4.0, have downloaded it and am just starting to get into it.

I'm always happy to see freelance programmers who go to the effort/expense of making their work available get picked up by a software company.

How hard is it for people to be happy for a guy.

Jeez... it's like the old ECW sold out syndrome.

Just because a guy is making better money, and you have to pay for the game doesnt make him any less of an awesome guy, nor does the game decrease in value.

If anything it makes it better, as he can devote all his time to it, adding everything we've always wanted.

EWR is awesome... but when Ryland's first new sim comes out... it's gonna make EWR look like an abacus
