You said you knew next to nothing about it and minutes later had enough info to argue a new side of the point. Another minute and you could have put them in sequence. If you can research that easily and fast why would you not expect a newbie to apply that much effort into researching a game patch history. If they even care that it has a history to begin with. If the rockpatch release sequence confonds somebody I imagine the .ini files would be to much for them.
Err...I think you're missing a detail there - it's the other way round. You're supporting me.
I found it out this quickly by looking it up on Wikipedia
. That's the same as if a newb looked up VK's versions on ModEnc (it's even the same software).
Had Wikipedia not pages on every FFVII title in existence, I'd have had no idea where to find out which versions exist at all, let alone for which platform they are or when they were released. And the same thing will happen to newbs if RockPatch:Versions is gone. They'll sit in front of the names and have no idea where to go to look them up.
ModEnc is to YR and RockPatch what Wikipedia is to games in general. Just like my ability to quickly and instinctively look up a game's background stands or falls with the question whether or not there is a wikipedia page for it, the ability of a newb to comprehend VK's versioning scheme stands and falls with the question of whether or not a ModEnc page exists for it.
Just like I'd have to go on a 15-minute journey through Google had there not been conviently accessible pages for all FFVII titles on Wikipedia, a newb would have to go through all version-threads in the news to find out which was started last.
Quickly comprehending a complex versioning scheme is possible - if you have the necessary information to overview it. And for VK's versioning scheme, that necessary information is the very page he's trying to get rid of right here, right now. So if you really think it's a good thing I was able to learn everything there is to know about FFVII versions within two minutes, you better get behind me and do everything you can to protect RockPatch:Versions.
Everything below this line was added as an edit, because VK posted while I typed my original post:
Quote:Celebration Edition Half Hundred
What is it? I have never release this!
That was your name for the #0050 exe, before it conveniently
disappeared from the server just now. I could, of course, get out the full-server backups to restore it, but I'm not gonna take the whole server down for your lame coverups. You're not worth the effort.
Nice one, gotta give you that.
...then again, I don't quite feel like letting you win...
...SO GO FUCK YOURSELF, MOTHERFUCKER:
That's from this thread
everybody, posted by the man himself. I wouldn't vanish my own proof, so...where did the file go? Hmm...who else has access to RP on the download server...?
I hope this is a lesson to all those thinking VK is the good guy in this discussion. I'm
not the one blackmailing the community and manipulating evidence here.
P.S.: We have backups, VK. Don't bother editing the post.
Quote:Ooh, you think renaming the bugfix-versions to "revisions"
No, my revisions don't add new features
is gonna save your ass here?
see status page (or better RP 1.03 help)
So, basically...the quote is right? Revisions are bugfix versions? What's your point?
v1.04b [Bugfix release #1]:
- Add as many new ParaDrop SuperWeapons as you wish
1.05b [Bugfix release #1]:
- Add infinite Nuke clones
However, I found a another uncompatible thing:
RPCE don't changed it at all.
but look into RP 1.03 Help:
but in RPCE you use Light=yes, LightRed, etc, isn't ?
- Add infite Psychic Dominator clones
DomRed=85 ;amount of red
DomGreen=20 ;amount of green
DomBlue=30 ;amount of blue
DomGround=0 ;no idea
DomLevel=0 ;again, no clue what this does
DomLight=yes ;turns the special lighting on or off
Was that directed at me? 'cause I have no idea what your point is.
Quote:Your version scheme is there
There a lot of different bullshit.
For example, noone should see there revisions, except start and last/final revision.
I want to underline, that if new version released, you should forgot about revisions for old versions.
In other words, RP 1.08 SE #0035 now simple RP 1.08 SE.
When I release RP 1.10, RPCE #0052 & RPCE74 #0104 become RPCE & RPCE74. [...]
What? Don't you like the idea that people might draw conclusions from the fact that pd only needed one or two bugfix releases, while you need dozens?
Might, of course, be related to the fact that he didn't release one a week, but actually tested his stuff.
Then again, we offered numerous times to help you beta-test the releases, but it's not like you care...
(The "real" reason for not getting rid of them is simple: If a newb found CE 74 #0102 somewhere, how would he know whether that's the latest CE 74, if Versions only lists "CE 74"?)
Oh, and by the way: While I was peacefully discussing here, uncovering VK's weak attempt at manipulating the evidence showing how crazy his numbering scheme is, he was over at ModEnc and vandalized RockPatch:Versions...again.
But hey...I'm the evil, arrogant one, right?
