Wow, I wanna see video evidence of this, does it exist anywhere?
OMG.... I'M FUCKING DYING OVER HERE. A single letter. Absolutely legendary!
On-topic. It's amazing how a misplaced letter could have costed millions of dollars and the downfall of an entire AAA mainstream franchise.
It's almost as cathastrophic as a genetic mutation, almost.
Aliens: Colonial Marines remastrd incoming
...how fucking incompetent do you have to be?
You know what, that's all the explanation anyone needs.
No fucking way. Wow.
That's kind of amazing.
Someone has to make an comparison video
can we see a comparison of this?
i refuse to believe this is real
How The Letter A Almost Brought Down A Developer
October and if it weren't for the post in the other thread, I would have never known. I think this has flown under the radar until now so I doubt there is video of it anywhere but believe me, it's noticeable from the second you press play.
Fucking Gearbox lol
Kinda want to try this game with the fox.
Do these people not use IDEs? Like, I don't know the specific of what language etc. they worked with here and so on, but every common IDE would tell you if you use a variable or method that doesn't exist. Wtf?
Someone tweet Randy Pitchford for this little fix.
So in conclusion which area failed in this coding stage? QA team? Thanks in advance.
No. Not in an .ini file. C'mon.
If this is true, this is what years of apathy and having a studio you unceremoniously dump a game on imploding looks like.
Yeah, I would just assume the developers thought the issue stemmed deeper into the code and was basically un-fixable without reworking huge chunks of the game.
Game development is hard. But sometimes it isn't lol
Having a unit test that verifies that all settings in the ini files are real settings ought to be a good sanity check.
jesus. You'd think there'd be some nasty compile error messages or something.
Should probably use MS Office spell check on your code.
Wow that Gearbox QA. You couldn't make this up if you tried.
Someone please tweet this to Randy.
HOW is this game right now with the fixed overhaul mod?
I love the old Aliens vs Predator PC games and was always bummed Aliens Colonial Marines was such a bust.
But maybe it is worth playing now?
I should get this....maybe
I just ... wow. This is even better than the initial DSfix.
I can't even laugh
I'm just wheezing
How does this happen
How does this happen.
I need comparison videos stat. This is hilarious
Lol what the fuck
I never played the game but from what I read I assume it had many other problems than just this one broken AI script
So just one line of code screwed the entire IA? what? there arent like more conditions to make the IA work?
How can you be a "professional" and yet be so utterly incompetent? Unbelievable.
A reminder before continue to unfairly blame gearbox, they tricked people, but weren't the reason the game was bad. They were given 9 months to finish a game that wasnt even half finished and wasn't even going to be on ps3 since the other devs couldnt make it work. Also Sega was the one that chose to release in that the state it was.
If PecanSeqAct_AttachPawnToTeather isn't even valid, why would there not be a compile error?
This is one of the funniest things I've read on here! I can't believe what I just read hahahahaha
