    You talking about the other guy you alluded to buying a home?

    Why the fuck would somebody steal 100K dollars and give it to another person to buy a home. Sounds retarded even for a beta.

    Surprisingly the only clarity on the thread came from the chat logs posted by the "scammer"

    Seems he is trying to make this game you want for free while being fucked over by the guy with the money if there is any left. I still don't think that makes him a scammer and the only thing you are going to do by antagonizing him is make him stop making the game for free and tell the project to fuck off. Only a beta would put up with this shit for no pay anyways and it seems like a waste of time tbh.

    He may get paid eventually by this appleton character or he may not but IDK. How long has he been working for free? what's his payment model like with the appleton guy? Is it pay per milestone met or something like that? Those are all valid questions but your over the top butthurt at this JP guy seems weird.

    Hes been working for free for 3 years. And I'm really not on about JP. JP and I have a history for 3 years now and I never personally attacked him until now. I honestly like the guy. Has the biggest balls ive ever seen and comes toidefend his game everywhere. has for the last 3 years regardless of how harsh things became. hes stood there with tenacity like ive never seen.

    Did you read everything?

    I read enough.

    It doesn't appear to be an outright scam against the backers because somebody is working on it. If anybody should be pissed off it's the JP guy (aka the dupe) who may or may not own the Game at this point. He definitely should refuse to do any work at all on the game until this is sorted out because if he releases the game and appleton gets all the profit from a released game and JP gets nothing.. that would be even shittier.

    This seems like more a case of bad business decisions and the original kickstarter guy trying to find a fall guy like you mentioned. The game will most likely fail unless JP turns into Cleveland Mark Blakemore but I hope for his sanity he doesn't.

    Seems it's time to move onto another game and just forget about this one. Also, lessons to learn, don't donate money to a crowd-funded MMO. That has got to be the worst idea I've ever heard.

    Its a conspiracy...Like 911 and the Joos
    First we take the codex..Then the world... Motherfuckers

    If penguins had opposable thumbs you guys would be fucked. It would be serious war. You humans....As it is we have to conspire on the codex. Shit suck's but it is what it is. Whence we finally gain control you will learn about what incline truly means. You may not enjoy it.

    I really love you guys!

    I posted here to highlight the irony of a tool making fun of a retard.

    Plenty of famous Codexers ADHD people didn't have it in them to get it, went ahead on spilling their 'Edge' anyway. So eventually, not only did i have more retarded posts to read for my pleasure, but i now see True(TM) Drama ensued on top of it! Doubly ironic since i had no intention of trolling/ridiculing, couldn't give a fuck about monger or its "victims"..

    Really got to love this place..

    Not sure if its funny or sad that backers are already asking about the T-Shirts they never received as backer rewards on the facebook...Ima go with sad. Jasons been too busy to send the shirts that are supposedly sitting in his garage since 2012.

    Not quite what I expected of this thread, but this was an interesting ride.

    Tough decision on GM_JamesPro's part, though probably the least worst one.

    It's been a long time in the making... I've had my family since day 1 telling me I should be careful with Jason, I've had Dark and others on MMORPG.com telling me for a couple years at least that I should get away from Jason and do my own thing. The last couple years working on GM hasn't been much fun since Jason threatened me with a Lawsuit if I left. I was now being forced in my eyes to be there instead of working on it because it was something I enjoyed. The last week or 2 was the worse when the stress started giving me physical issues... GM and Jason aren't worth loosing my life over because of the stress it's putting me under.

    Thought this was somehow involved, yeah. Not sure on what grounds he would be doing that though, but maybe you had a contract where you'd have to work on GM til completion or something else equally terrible.

    Yeah, absolutely not worth losing health over. Besides, with health issues you couldn't continue development properly even if you tried, so there's also that.

    You really expect more GM folk to show up? I have my doubts.

    yes. Just wait. You have no idea.

    Appleton is coming. Either to threaten lawsuits or to join in the conversation.
