Well you are wrong on that one. Generally companies get away with shit like this all the time in the states. Only one has really every been caught, and that was Enron. All the others pull it on a monthly basis, just watch financial news and you see it all the time. How depressing :( It just means m...

Darwinia in PC Extreme

Just thought I'd say that Darwinia got a mention in the games section of PC Extreme (great magazine BTW). Scan is below.

The online dictionary entries were last updated by our resident Introversion Forumite: Darksun (see http://en.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml?title=Introversion_Software&action=history) I applaud your initiative and hope to see more of the same in the future :) Oh, and well done to whoever 62.30.39.2...

Hmm... personally I would have waited a while before re-doing my system, at least until there was a motherboard that supported PCI-X, DDR2 and all that new stuff. Anyway, don't worry, IV are still accepting beta submissions. They said that they would be selecting new testers in batches every few wee...

I would suggest using QuickTime to view the movie but I don't really know anything about Macs so use your best judgement.

And could anyone tell me what the music used in Janus' video is? Is it the Darwinia music? It kinda reminded me of the Fallout music.

This says that it "allows the playback of XVID encoded movies within QuickTime based applications". Although you do need DivX first.

...the selection process was an entirely automated process based purely on system specs. Post count, prior IV loyalty, etc. was not taken into account at all. Actually, the beta website says "Introversion will select from the applicants a group of able minded individuals with the right attitude and...

Hmm... a few months is four months and that feels so far away. Oh well, guess I'll just shut up, stop whining and hope for the best then.

The way I see it, we have 3 options: 1: We could rally the rejects and storm Introversion HQ. Then steal the Darwinia Beta and escape in a blaze of glory. 2: We buy Chris and the others some nice gifts to help them decide who to pick for the next lot of testers. Maybe they could use some new hats......

Looks fine here as well. I just had to reinstall my Xvid codec, which had gone a bit screwy, and it was fine. Nice shot of the trees at the end by the way. :)

I wasn't selected, that's why I'm moaning :) Surely if IV wants to test "unsupported" cards then they will want to know what card you have that they don't support. I mean it wouldn't do any good to have 20 people all with the same "unsupported" card, now would it? Anyway, the only reason that I brou...

Back on the topic of the moaning rejects, I think that maybe the beta submission form should be more specific for graphics cards. I had to select "Other Graphics Card" because my onboard graphics adapter, my Kyro card and my TNT card were not available. I am not suggesting that IV add every graphics...

It would be kinda unfair if both usernames were picked... I mean the person would have to do TWICE as much beta testing :P
