    ^ This.

    Also, is that “rebuttal” still a thing or…?

    I posted bugs list in #869, issues not fixed since 8 years ago.
    When can I expect an update with bug-fixes?

    You said you did the power-ups, where is it?
    Didn't see any when I played the game.
    Do you mean that green bouncing thing that is un-shootable that drops down?

    This is a fraction of what a normal game should have.
    No start screen, No high-score, no-game-over, negative scores, non-functional hit-detection, non-functional scoring system, non-functional lives system.

    And you are proud of your your useless, unplayable, Space Invaders clone.

    It is not even a clone at all. A clone would be full-featured and enjoyable to play.
    What are you thinking?

    Stop contradicting yourself! And when will you answer any questions? Or are you going to keep avoiding like this..

    >_> Going to listen to The Clash now, at least some people with an IQ above absolute zero.

    And yes, dear James, theft/fraud is quite a good name for what you did. No need to deny it.

    So, anyone kind enough to fill me up on the details of this re-launch, re-shutting down thing?

    Proctor: I WILL STILL MAKE THE GAME!
    Haters: Nha, that's bullshit!

    Whoa, that escalated quickly...

    I really dont know why James even bothers to think about Greed Monger, the name and everyone surrounding it, is tarnished and cursed forever.
    No one in a sane mind will touch anything by anyone that had a hand in that project, I lost all hope for these guys.

    Like fine wine, the drama gets better and better.

    Mr. Lumpyman has since gone to other ventures as well.

    lol does james still think he can make a game, let alone a MMORPG

    How many projects did he start by now, this must be his 20th mmo he wants to create from stolen assets. This is some serious OCD behavior here

    James, just stop it.
    Go enroll yourself into a computer science college course so you can learn the basics of coding and learn to, make a living, instead of living on welfare.

    What happened to your counselling course? Is it just bunk and you are just cheating yourself out of your future by continuing to do game-development nonsense where you do not understand basics?

    You are delusional, dishonest and cheat yourself.

    It's like Dunning–Kruger effect where you build a MMO, but in reality you don't have the skill-sets, the server-administration knowledge, modelling knowledge, art knowledge to do so.


    After three years studying, you'll be a proud man who can do basic coding rather than continue this delusional MMO.

    It's been 5 years now. If you studied for a college degree in 2012, you would have graduated and at least 2 years's experience by now.

    Oh I just notice that I didn’t update the list, after Project: City Life comes this:

    Feb 18, 2016 - Greed Monger

    Dec 29, 2016 – Simple Arcade

    ...and now we are back to Rise of Heroes: Online MMORPG ~ it’s sort of like a merry go round, it doesn’t matter what you tell him, reality is just a pointless stuff according to his own logic, just let him keep at it, hopefully the “greed monger” backers that he insists on bringing back over and over won’t just try to sue his ass one of these days (though according to someone over MMO-Champion, that might actually happen pretty soon)

    It's totally different when you work in a studio vs. alone.

    Let me take that Simple Arcade game as an example -

    Proctor, if he was a developer working in a studio, he would have easily finished the Simple Arcade, as, an 2D artist would do the UI parts, the 2D prizes on screen, and other 2D artwork required to finish the 2D parts of the game.

    The 3d modeler person would have textured the 3d models, would have modeled the small prizes (wall of 3d prizes to be won), set the environment, lighting, do the 3D animations and finish the 3d parts of the game.

    Proctor, would have have the iPads, Androids already brought for him, instead of him saving up his money (while on welfare...) to buy the tablets. He would probably have a senior developer who would guided him along.

    The small game would have been finish in 4 week's time.

    The game-designer person would have designed the game - for fun and play-ability.

    Then, the game is unfinished because Proctor does not have UI skills, does not have art-skills or pixel-art skills to finish the game.

    Nope. Proctor doesn't listen, Proctor doesn't improve himself, want things on his own terms, which is unacceptable behavior in a studio.


    The basics or foundations of coding, he don't know; the last video of bugs in his YT channel, you can see red error messages on the Unity status bar, and same in the MMO videos from last year.



    There is no new content from since last year. Proctor wants a server, but has to use welfare money to afford one. How he has fallen...

    Proctor probably needs dedicated server support ($$$) to help him, host his greedy buggy server. And the current code-base that he has (either Atavism or Game Machine) probably wouldn't work, since he tried and tried to get the server hosted and failed...

    Of course..., it works on his machine. But in a live environment it doesn't work. That should lay Greed Monger, and whatever MMO project he does, to rest.

    His art-friends are all these people who have no prior experience in commercial-quality art. That should tell you what kind of environments, 3D models and illustrations he does. Basic simple below-junior artwork.

    Haven't seen any of the new artwork in his current videos.

    From that video -


    There are errors in Unity - then proctor complains of bugs in Atavism. I'm not sure if it's due to Atavism or James poor coding practices.
    Notice it's licensed to jason@jasonappleton.com
    [​IMG]


    Proctor is not an game-developer. He don't know how to set the texture on mesh, thus, the pink color bottom. The starting scene looks horrible...
    [​IMG]


    He has Bittorrent, what else did he download as well?
    [​IMG]


    Do you expect Atavism to work correctly when there are bugs of the developer inside Unity?
    [​IMG]


    There are many show-stopping errors in Proctor's code. They probably were not fixed since 3 years ago...
    [​IMG]


    The work is so bad, it's like trying to get Unity to run buggy code, causing it to crash...
    [​IMG]


    James is probably not a game developer who knows anything about UI...

    The license is nothing new, he got everything from Appleton when he took ownership over Greed Monger… including the responsibilities that luckily for him, everyone ignored, otherwise unless I’m mistaken, he would have to still have to fulfill the Kickstarter physical rewards.

    As for this project, it’s just Greed Monger with another name, which is actually already taken by Pine Entertainment as a mobile game…. What’s actually funny is that he went through the trouble of making this futuristic brilliant background:

    Genetic modifications! Cloning! The God Particle! THE US “HAS FALLING”! RAPE AND MURDER ON THE STREETS! And surprisingly, after only 10 years of this shit, he throws the players into this medieval fantasy world, where you can play as warrior/rogue/mage, slay dragons with swords and mine shit with pickaxes… well fuck, now I understand why simpler stuff such as a text rpg also isn’t an option.

    Someone should re-review Proctor's disability. Anxiety is NOT a disability.
