I can't you all just how pissed I am as I write this but I will shed some light on this ridiculous situation. First off SSnake I was never banned from the TS server...If I was, how is that I could returnn to said server ,and nor was I ever given any notice or reason for said ban which it seems could simply be over ridden by entering the server???That says there was no ban.The 3rd armor channel simply disapeared without any reasons given to me soon after an altercation with a fellow 3rd armor member ON MY OWN TS SERVER not yours.We have been in touch and are still on friendly terms,in fact they have come to visit me to chat on occasion since that altercation.And it was he that brought this tgif incident to my attention Secondly...The dog of war VU informs me that there was evidence that shows their licences both server and others(Im not even sure what that means), were suspended and until that day had no interruptions of there gaming sessions up UNTIL that day...yet a fellow user had hosted the server for them immediately after the failure to launch. I do have a server exe which was given to me by sean...with the conditions that 1)We don't use it during TGIF 2)That we not share it with anyone. I have complied. Thirdly and I think this is were the problem addressed at me in this situation extends from ,I have been able for reason unknown,to run steelbeasts WITHOUT A DONGLE For what might be more than two years now(not exactly sure the time period) EVEN before the open beta was announced.What went on behind the sences in you dev dept up until the beta I can't say.All I know is that I did not require a dongle nor later on ,Did I even require a update to run steelbeasts. Up until very recently I've been running 3.25 without an update and when it failed for some unknown reason,I switched to my server exe to run it.It must be noted that I don't run SB very often hardly at all since the 3rd armor breakup.But I do run on occastion on weekends and sometimes during the week.I did run it this saturday past for a sort time...as I have done many times in the past without incident.I have discussed this with the DogofWar VU and they are satisfied that I was NOT the reason for their concerns. I'll let you and them sort that out. In fairness,I have had to explore and try thru trial and error how to configure the web admin...its not user friendly...so god knows what the codemetre logs are going to tell ya...I have however figured it out to the point that I can run MY steel beasts game. Lastly...If I did want to disrupt the steelbeast communities gaming...Then I could have simply released the exe along with the ips and instructions that were given too me... to the public...A "crack" if you will. That certainly could have had an impact on not only game play ,but your economics as well.I have not ,nor will I. I expect my name removed from this f-ing mess pronto.
