I'd planned to have a patch ready to go as a Christmas gift to you guys, but that's unlikely to happen. What is likely is a halt to all development until at least the middle of January.

I've just been handed a 90-hour schedule for next week (all 7 days of it) after enduring a trio of ~70-hour weeks for the past three. A lovely email from corporate HQ announced that all internal (i.e. me) and external sub-contractor labor was stretched beyond capacity and that we should all expect to be working 90 hours a week for "several weeks", which translated to mid-January up to March depending on what infographic was included in that particular email (we were sent several).

This, along with thinly veiled threats to force us to work the 24th and 25th of December (we were promised the 24th off and Christmas is a national holiday for God's sake) out of a company that proudly announced that it had smashed its previous sales records and had grossed 198 million USD so far this year (with another quarter remaining for even more moneys), means that us poor slaves robots expendable meatbags workers in shipping/receiving, install, and delivery are to get down on our hands and knees and open wide for the forseeable future.

I'm sincerely sorry that I haven't been able to get EiR on Steam yet, let alone resolve our remaining balance issues or even get out one measly patch before Christmas--if there were more hours in a day I'd gamely attempt to do so.

Assuming I don't manage to contact anyone for a while, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's to you all.

Aren't there laws forbidding that kind of slavery?

Because a forum post should be like a woman's skirt. Long enough to cover the subject material, but short enough to keep things interesting.

I feel like if Smokaz and Shab met up it would be a 50/50 tossup to see which one of them robbed the other first.

I do not understand where the problem with Steam is.

There are many games in Steam where you have to create a new account with another game provider. For example Uplay and many more. For some of these providers you can link this account to the Steam account but not to all of them!

EIR just need a launcher download via Steam and a install function in the Steam Library.

With the start of the game, the launcher can open, with executable rights for Steam CoH, so that no extra admin rights are needed? The Blitzkrieg Mod do the same.

Also, the installation path in the installer need be adjusted for the brand new Steam path. Cheesy

And you have to be able to delete a company in Launcher, for example, if one mistyped his name.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year for you too Smiley

Man you'd be lucky to get a 90 hour work week here in Iceland, the overtime pay would be fucking insane.
Especially over Christmas, red days so 180% x 2 would make you rich from just Christmas day.

Aside from that come to Iceland man, solution here is you can't get a job so don't have to work.

You save it!!

Then when you get older you can give it away keeping a game website and server going. It is important to note, while you give this money away, be prepared to be insulted, berated, ridiculed, and finally back stabbed.

But seriously - you can take the extra work and complain about it, or you can use it to advance yourself. Put that additional money into high risk / high yield investments of some sort ( you are young enough to take high risk ).

Nothing good comes from bitching - make something out of it! There is nothing more rewarding than the day the boss you had decades ago comes asking you for a job after you made something of yourself. Trust me - I know.

Instructions unclear, stuck money to a ceiling fan.

(It's now safe, high risk, and high!)
