seriously, theres barely any good Horror-Mods, and there should be. this, in short, is a group for all the gamers who feel left out of the mod-playing communities just because its hard to make or find something scary. If you think there should be more horror mods out there, or just Love horror mods, feel free to join :D
Inside the technical details of a rather small but helpful patch to the Lovecraftian horror/mystery for Crysis.
Posted by C-zom on Nov 24th, 2011
Hello everyone, and happy Thanksgiving (Or post-thanksgiving depending on when Moddb staff works!). I'm here to report a very small but happy and productive patch has finally gone gold for my Lovecraftian horror/mystery mod for Crysis, The Worry of Newport. Big things come in small packages and this is no exception, the fans have been asking me since inception for saving and loading support and an easier installation path, and both have been granted on top of a slew of hotfixes.
Patching is an annoying business for all involved, I know, triply so for something as story based and linear as Worry of Newport. You may ask, "C-zom, I already beat it, it's uninstalled. Why do you keep patching it?"
The answer is simply because I care. Before I deleted the old individual downloads, something like 6000 of you individually played The Worry of Newport. It is simply for the next 6, 60, 600, or 6000 down the road that will play it brand new that I want to have the most patched and polished version I can provide as a modder.
The reasoning is sound to me. No one is asking you to replay it if you enjoyed it last time, but if you had issues with the bugs, or lack of saving, or ridiculously complicated install procedure, it has all been addressed fully.
I am dedicated to an insane degree, n odoubt due to excess free time, to provide patching whenever needed. But remember I am not omnipotent, and I actually get hazed over by familiarity when replaying this mod over and over to screen for bugs. I need *you* to tell me what issues you have, so I can best provide you with the patches the mod needs. The fanbase has been humorously mum on bugs, both gamebreaking and minor, in the past and I'm hoping that changes today.
If you have issues with Worry of Newport, let us know. I am dedicated to this mod's upkeep and if you keep silent and stay resentful and flame us for bugs, we cannot help you because you do not tell us. That is all.
Until next time, whenever that might be. Remember if you wake up on Newport one day, you're probably screwed.
