    On his Facebook page. Apparently he has moved in with his daughter, in a new city I imagine, and self-hosting is 3x more expensive. He's trying to raise the first 1-3 years of funds to colo Neveron's servers, is how I read his statement.

    My diagnosis: DOA

    I saw that also. I set him a few links to places in Dallas and LA that have dedicated server farms for 90 a month for a 100meg dedicated Ip connections. He sent a reply saying the game takes three servers and that would still be 300 a month. But guaranteed uptimes and managed servers where he doesn't have to sit on them 24/7. If he could get the game online he would probably start getting some donations back in.

    I did ask about rolling back to an older "primitive" version and he swears that they never made a back up copy of the original game. All changes are made "Live" on the server.

    I cant believe that Randy never gave him a copy especially since I know that wayward and randy both had the original code for the game.

    I think I need to start learning java and make a new version of the game.

    Not sure I'd care enough either way. I've had a nice detox ;)

    Yup, it's like hitting yourself in the head with a hammer over and over again. It feels so good when you stop...

    Would need solid proof for what hes claiming. Cause as it stands right now it seems like a scam to line his own pockets. Cause im assuming people stopped donating right

    Oh, I don't think it's an intentional scam.

    "What's the charge, officer?"
    Police: "Involuntary mail fraud."

    craig is a person...with feelings, and life, and...... no friends.

    now he lives somewhere else, the taxi driving didn't cut it, neveron didn't make him the fortune he wanted.

    now he is stuck with what?

    probably herpes and a small penis.

    I agree about basically everything you said.

    I don't think he is going to get any support. there is also another big issue:

    The time for nev-like games is gone (i mean technologically speacking). No new players are going to engage in such games (at least not masivelly) and of course they are not going to donate as old players did.

    The only point for neveron at this point (if any) is to keep a small version of it running for nolstalgic people. Maybe in that case it is able to get enough money for self-sustaining, but not because of people actually willing to enhacen or develop the game, but just for nolstalgic reasons.

    From my point of view there is no point on investing on it. If someone wanted to rise another nev-like game (and in this case I mean game-wise speacking) then he would have to start from zero and give it a thougth on how to create a game that take advantage of smartphones and new technologies. Maybe some apps that allows to pilot from the phone, another for managing the empire... and so on.

    That might actually do the trick.

    just my 2cents ;).

    Oh, and hi. i only visit this forum like 3 times a year and this was one of them, so enjoy my visit :p.
