Idk if this will do anything at all, but I made a change.org petition for 8bitmmo. 

↓ CLICK THE IMAGE (or if it isn't showing up,) click here [X] 

8bitmmo_banner_v3_by_starmanfan-dall0ty.

 

 

just to at least persuade the sim himself to make a megamap update, maybe if we get enough signatures he'll realize the errors of his ways and update again probably not but it's worth a shot

 

I'd at least like to try and accomplish something :/

 

Edit: Sim9 has convinced me to stop supporting the game.

 

the petition remains open but someone else can worry about it

 

Edit 2: It seems sim9 did update the megamap (except =68, unknown if he'll update that), even though the petition only had 9 signatures.

Sadly, you're right. But hey 4 signatures is more than I expected so that's a plus. I don't think most old players would really sign this anyway considering the previous conflict around the summertime. At this point, I think it's pretty much too late for the game to be saved. If he updates, will everyone come back? Some might, others won't. It will help the game, but not restore it to a much more stable playerbase. I'm honestly not sure why after all these endeavors to help support the game, sim9 mostly neglects it. I thought there was a sliver off hope when he did a little update on mysbox prices, making them 3750 to 2500, but three weeks in October he doesn't even add in previous seasonal content and his only response to anything octoberbit related was when Alex posted the phrase "octoberfest" instead and sim only decided to make a little joke with an image. No confirmations, no cancelling it, nothing. This game probably won't hit any fundraiser goal unless it's $10 or something.

I miss Chris. I don't even remember much w/ my steam. I haven't talked to him in a long time. How's he doing?

I understand how he feels, but he put a lot more time and effort into everything than I ever did. 

I guess he's kinda right about the stopping part. I wanna see at least one final megamap update before I'm satisfied. I didn't spend over 500k and hours and hours on that papyrus pixel art for it to just be destroyed. :/

We've all spent a crap load of time and effort into this insignificant project of a "game". It's just not worth it anymore.


You do you.

Don't post messages from banned trolls, please.  Despite how much they think of themselves, they've actually had zero effect one way or another on the game's activity.  Even I haven't had an impact on game activity, lol.  Active players per day follows a mathematical curve ever since launch, and no amount of updates has significantly affected that.

Then you have no right to criticize other people for trying.

And I wanna support this guy's game because...? By the way, 10/10 job for responding to something so minor that wasn't even the topic of this thread, when you THE DEV would probably get upset had anyone else derailed it. These days, I feel like every word you type just makes the playerbase weaker.
 
I think I speak for everyone here when we're tired of this "mathematical curve no update correlation" bull**** you choose to say as pretty much your only response to the matter. Especially when we all know people left because the game "was dead".

 

Even I haven't had an impact on game activity, lol.

 I don't think anyone has or ever will play it because of you. As a person, at least. As a developer, probably not unless you do something with it.
 

Then you have no right to criticize other people for trying.

Almost everyone I've seen try has outdone him in creativity, resourcefulness, and overall attitude.

---

Here I am wasting time trying to rally up support for a game you refuse to update and you hardly bat an eye. Not only that you waste YOUR time bothering on a little message that a banned player sent that, was hardly offensive, but rather a statement of truth since you haven't done anything significant to the game yourself for months on end. Do you enjoy being a disappointment to the community? Did something suddenly snap in your brain to make you think that not updating the game for months would be hunky-dory?

Are you just gonna sweep this thread under the rug and silence me?

 

Or are you going to do something about it?

why does everyone hate sim9 for doing his job? You realize he can ban all of you with the push of a button, right?

It's not that we hate him for doing his job, it's that we hate him for not doing his job

 

He's expected to run the game which he's been doing, but it goes without saying if a dev wants to keep a playerbase, he'll mix things up by adding new content. Or at least support his game and its players. He hasn't kept that expectation at all. 

 

He could ban me/us but what would that prove? We're right? He'll just sweep under the rug what he can't argue with? He kills off the last of the playerbase? I also thought it was against his code to ban people "without reason".

 

Heck, if he thinks banning me shall do him or the game any good then let the banhammer hit me upon the head.

 

I quit either way.

 

 

Goodbye

Not really sure why I'm the target of your anger, star.  It's all well and good to petition for updates, but I've explained my reasons for not updating already.  You can hate me for not updating if you want, but try to keep in mind also that I've already spent years doing updates and making the game in the first place.  Plus, I'm continuing to eat hundreds of dollars of server hosting bills each month.  I've spent far more than even KJH has on this game, so cut me a little slack at least. 

 

But after all this, I'm ready to move on to my next project.  I haven't decided what it will be yet, though.  Maybe it'll be 9bit, maybe it'll be something single player (like those little rpgmaker gamejams), maybe it'll be some totally other mmo.  I have a job again, so regular life is going to take priority for at least the next six months.

You mean the bills you usually run fundraisers for? Which you made a huge total surpassing the minimum costs? Or money you could be making if you update the game? You've spent a ton of money... KJH'S MONEY... Which he probably didn't spend just for you to quit on it. All you had to do was update, you haven't even done a basic texture update from last year's... the halloween one...

The next six months? You mean like it has been for the past 10 months?
...Your next project? If you're going to quit updating it, pass it on to someone who can do it for(and preferably BETTER than) you.

I don't check the forums for at least a week, and a whole rant is happening? wow, I really need to do so more, anyways, I believe what Star (and many other people, lol) are trying to say, is that more updates may help the game's activity, or getting the game on some popular site (other than kong) might help. Say, NotDoppler.com?

 

Apart from my totally useless post here, remember the good old days of 8BitMMO? yeah, when you used to punch LawyerCats in the face, build houses, hangout with friends... Ah. the good old days... when minigames were a thing. Hmm, maybe I might try to advertise 8bit, I'll see about that...

 

 

 

P.S: Even of how he treated me, I don't believe Chris is a troll, he just acted out of anger, that's all. :)

Again, updates have not led to increased player count.  There is no reason to think that this will suddenly change after years of data shows otherwise.

 

What will lead to a revitalized community is a new game.
