MISERY 2.2 released

News 89 comments

MISERY 2.2 RELEASED

The MISERY Development Team (MDT) is celebrating the culmination of a three and a half year labor of love with the release of MISERY 2.2 for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat on September 23rd, 2017. We thank our fans for the overwhelming support and encouragement they have given the team. You inspired us to keep our noses to the grind stone and produce a project we can be truly proud of.

Fancy a smoke?MISERY 2.2 is happening


The devastating number of natural disasters during development have greatly impacted both our fans and team members. The recent earthquakes in Southern Mexico have directly impacted one of our team and left us with a dilemma: Should we push forward and release as advertised or wait possibly several weeks before the demonstration videos can be completed?

Our fans have waited very patiently, and while the mod deserves a consolidated fanfare and all the polish we are accustomed to providing with earlier releases, we simply couldn’t deprive our fans of what they have been waiting for any longer.

We welcome our fans to try out the mod while we are busy generating all the finishing touches it deserves. In addition to the release, we have an all new website to welcome you to MISERY 2.2 Themiserymod.com

MISERY v 2.2 FULL


Feedback on the mod can be provided there, on our ModDb Bugs thread at Moddb.com: Moddb.com

Please avail yourself of the FAQ and Game Guide on the website and review the installation instructions on the Bugs thread before reporting a potential bug. Kind regards Misery Development Team


Thanks again and kind regards

Misery Development Ltd.

The author is illegally seeking Patreon renumeration for his work for patches and updates. That is a clear violation of the GSC licence.

Aand hello there.. I have created the new content for Road To The North in two years of working for free. The mod+ updates will always remain free as stated on my website. No where on Patreon do I force anyone to pay anything. I contacted CSG myself. If livestreamers may earn money on gameplay videos then I should at least be allowed to place a totally optional donation link.

Well, working for free can let you only to reach certain goals, when you want to accomplish more, at some point you have to ask for funding, it is understandable.

I was not aware that GSC, developers of Stalker franchise (not CSG) have changed their policy toward payed moded content, IIRC even donations were forbiden last time I checked. If you got written licence from them about that then nothing to worry about. Even if you don't have I doubt that GSC would put any legal actions against you. However, saying "livestreamers may earn money on game videos, why should not I be allowed" would not save you if GSC deceide at some point otherwise. Only their written permission is valid there.

Some moders were avoided GSC licence restrictions by asking donations, not for mod itself, but for maintain web sites or for tools used for mod creation or like in mentioned TAZ, for new hardware. Sort of gray area, but probably all of mentioned would get away from any law charges.

I'm not against you or any other moders to take donations or even monetarize whole mod, all of effort necessary to create good mod deserve reward.

However, bunch of codes used in CoC as base mod as well of numerous others mods you listed that were included in your mod were released under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike licecne, or version of it:
En.wikipedia.org

As long as you include pieces of code with CC-like licence (not each script have same licence) and ask money for it, even it is donation than it is not OK.

For the same reason it would be unetical from MDT to ask for doantion for MISERY as many people were involved in development and only very few are active by now.

Neither I and most probably other MDT members have nothing against you to ask for donations (I can only speak for myself), but some other moders of mods that you are merged in Road To The North might not be happy to hear that you earning money from their CC licenced software.

I wish you the best of luck in finishing mod, but you might consider to make it more clear where donated money is used for. You may ask for hardware, some other sowftware tools used in development, web site support, or anything else that will put you at least in "grey" area, but you can't ask for donation directly for mod dvelopment unless you remove all other mergerd CC mods.

Thanks you for the information.
Any donations are optional, I'd continue modding without them as long as I can.

I do have contact with CSG, I ask them for permissions.

During the creation of Road To The North I had to replace my video card, pay two different servers for backup hosting, and pay for hosting of the website I built.
that's just an example of something I don't want to force other people to pay money for, it's a choice I made. That's why I posted "a donation is a great way to say thanks". I'll think about how to put it on the page..

I understand that some people want to know what the donations will be used for, and that I should update the description on Patreon so the credits section of RTTN will be linked, including all merged mods. I will update this information.

Thank you for understanding.

It is not only for other people who will give you donations. Neither I care much about GSC, they got more than enough money to protect their IP and do whatever they want with it.

It is more for other moders who have contributed in code you are using in development of your mod. Consider this, how you would feel if someone download your mod, use only assets that you created (female stalker character) and sell it elsewhere without asking for permission ? And such person maybe could be better in PR, marketing, whatever and earn a lot money while leaving you with almost nothing.

It would be almost impossible to reach each moder for every single piece of code you are using or some asset, whatever. But having better info how donated money will be spend, what kind of expenses you are already have will probably make things little better for you.

You would still be in quite "grey" moral area, because if people that were contributed in project trough their code in the past were OK if someone earn money from their work in the future, they would publish their work under MIT licence, not CC a like licence. But with more clear explains they might be OK with it.

I don't disagree that it is reasonable, it is GSC's stance. Many players would willingly donate, especially to support faster work. Maybe GSC will soften their stance one day, but until they do, I can't deny their right to choose what they permit on their own IP. As I said in my email, I wish you the best of luck with the mod; it sounds great. I look forward to trying it.

Hypocrisy in its finest forms of MDT when someone outperforms their ****** work :)
Why you didnt bitch about that when TAZs author ran a patreon page on his mod? because his works would benefit the lazy misery awful garbage gun models because MDT spent three years for a crowbar midget tent and matches instead of optimizing their mod and putting decent gun models in it.
You never going to realize that you are behind because it took you a non official Russian team to port your mod as COM and you have a circle of MDT suckers like that sergio pal makes you feel you done wonders.

TAZ is independent of MISERY as are any member created add-ons. I would say the exact same thing about RTTN if it was done by a group of MDT members. It doesn't say a thing about the work for or against. Hate somewhere else.

Calling it a 'donation' is merely semantics. It is compensation. Compensation for product based upon both GSC's IP, and other modders work.
Saying Thank you, voting for the mod on ModDb, giving it a good review are great ways to say thanks.

I am a modder too, I don't even sleep just so I can finish new content.

"Saying Thank you, voting for the mod on ModDb, giving it a good review are great ways to say thanks."

I agree.

Until GSC says otherwise, donations are illegal for mods to GSC Stalker games. We have been offered many many times. A small donation is a great way to ruin Stalker mods for everyone.

Gosh! That's weird… I'll ask the author about this.
However, this said and putting aside the legal matter, I think that a reward is always a must to help having a great piece of work and with a continuous support. You guys at MDT deserved it more than anyone else and, maybe, if this was possible, now would still have a good and numerous team of developers to make the Official Misery for CoC on 64 bit engine, it would be the best of all.
No reward? No party. Easy as it is.

… and will be all for naught if GSC places an injunction on the author and makes ModDb remove it.

Survivor horror at it's finest, although slightly flawed. Once all the kinks are ironed out, this will be the definite Stalker: Call Of Pripyat mod.
