For future issues, we will have to recommend contacting Atari about them.
What is this supposed to mean? No more fixes?

Seems like Atari is crashing this party.

Ugh. What a horrible night to have Atari.

Now I'll never get my texture filtering.

And I'll never get my 16:9 minimal HUD. :(

start spamming support@atari.com until they do something about it. Atari is an awful company so it would take a great amount of effort for them to step up and get someone to fix anything.

Might as well recommend getting a daily colonoscopy because that'll seem about as easy as contacting and getting Atari to do anything about the lingering bugs.

Cute though that the contract they have mandates that the ability to fix things now flips back to Atari's oversight but they can still sell the buggy product.

They never sold it though, Atari is the publisher here.

Just forget this game guys and contribute to NBlood.

I think you're misinterpreting my response there - I'm not saying Atari is selling the game, I'm saying that Night Dive is and that the contract excuse preventing Night Dive from continuing to deliver direct updates without first having issues funneled through Atari seems like a complete load of crud if the contract still permits them to continue to sell the buggy product.

Yeah, I get the feeling Zaxx got what you meant exactly right and that's the thing though: Atari is selling the product, being the publisher.

it almost seems like the game Blood has been cursed by the armies of darkness

Haha I see what you did there.

So what... do we link/ copy and paste the list of remaining bugs to atari as a community?

Well, we all know Atari's track record so lets just call it a day. Expect nothing further on this game. It was fun while it lasted :(

I mean, I never expected to even get this so why not press our luck? Worst case scenario is nothing happens right?

We could create an online petition or something, stating the current bugs and feature requests. But how many of us would sign it? 20-50 people? Would they care about 50 people? And for what? No profit is expected, how many more people would buy it? 10?

Fixing all the remaining bugs and implementing features like new mapedit and various things like that would take months of develpment, the development cost would be significant while the profit is nearly marginal, if any.

Edit: forgot to mention Linux and Mac support...

LOL, just LOL.

Someone gave up, still not sure if Atari, which finally noticed how slow and uncompetent are NDS, or NDS itself which finally admit they did a step longer than the leg.

It's a loss / loss in both ways. Especially for Blood which deserved much more.....starting from a CAPABLE team.
