    Hopefully this will include a fix for the not being able to work issue, too. Although his actual post just says its a partial lag fix and screen resolution fix.
     
  3. yay so we can readd the -r800x600
     
  4. No one has confirmed that inability to get to work at jobsites is even a bug.

    What part of BETA don't people get? The Devs are working their backsides off to get this game going and we all know that there will be issues that have to be addressed to get it out of BETA. So instead of making comments like pull the plug ...let's give the Devs a big thumbs up for the hard work they are continually doing to improve the game as a whole.

    We also know that during the BETA stage of any game there will be issues that pop up and have to be addressed. Seems no one is giving them a chance to fix before they start spouting off of quitting and/or pulling the plug.

    I am a returning player from back when and trust me there are alot of different things in this game that wasn't there before. I may not like the lag, the bugs, the exploits etc etc. but it sure as heck isn't going to make me stop playing. I for one can't wait to see how the game is once out of BETA. Communication is more now than ever and I see the Devs trying daily to fix things that are popping up.

    There is a saying about Patience being a Virtue...I feel that the ones that complain need to start feeling a little more virtuous and give the Devs credit for the hard work they do and continue to do to make EA-Land a place where we love to go. All the whining and griping is getting really old now.
     
  9. will it be safe to add the -r800x600 back again?

    patience is a virtue but paying for beta is not realistic.
    let the game be free until it's out of beta
    we're paying but not playing.

    OK so lets all go free accounts and then really watch the game go down the tubes. I for one will continue to pay and play. I have 4 accounts and I support the DEVS 200%. If you can log in and go to a skill house or a money house and chat with people...you indeed are playing.

    I love the game and am willing to wait until they have all the bugs fixed so it will be worth the $9.99 a month I think anyway.

    Then my suggestion to you and any others...go free, go to TC3 and let us that are willing to pay &amp; play do so without all the negativity that is constantly posted on the forum.

    We understand BETA and are willing to pay while we play and watch the game unfold into something totally awesome.

    I'm not quite sure how you're not playing. I've been able to play approximately 22 hours a day with the exception of 1 day. AND that one day totaled about $.33 of my monthly bill. It may not be perfect, but that's ok - neither am I.

    everyone can play for free, we just have to go to tc3
    so apparently us NOT paying would NOT be an issue for EA
    and yes, I'm going to tc3 and not pay.
    I don't see any reason to pay for a beta game, especially when I was already in the beta version of this game over 5 years ago.

    No you were in the BETA version of TSO...this is NOT TSO this is EA-Land and things are different now then they were 5 years ago...but good luck in your venture in TC3...hopefully one day you will return to EA-Land and see what an awesome place it turned out to be.

    well I'm not counting the time online when I hit enter to speak in chat and it takes 2 minutes for my text to appear.. or when I click on a plate to eat and suddenly I've eaten, zoomed to the bathroom (while I look at a frozen screen)
    So you're counting that time spent as playing... I don't.

    Could we please stop whining about the beta and the non-free beta at this?

    Many have said it before me... you don't NEED to stay in the game.

    Go be a free account...

    I know I am happy playing whenever I can, however I can, and I'm happy to pay so the game continues growing and improving until it gets out of beta.

    Sim once, Sim always... die hard
     
  30. They give u the option to play for free !!!

    Heres what I think, I dont think they are "trying" to take our jobs away, HOWEVER, I do think there is a bug they they have no fix for and they dont want to confirm this bug in forums knowing they have no way to fix it, so they rather just ignore the issue completley than hear all the complaining.

    Why are we paying for a paid accnt when we are restricted as if we were free players. If this keeps up idk how many paying players will continue to pay [​IMG]
