No, I'm not retarded, because I understand that "no means no" and I don't expect people to do stuff they don't want to do just because I want it but can't be bothered to do it myself.

My point was merely that, you choose to roleplay in a game without any roleplaying features. Therefore, the fact that you don't have these features, is your own fault.

It is not the OJP team's, nor anyone else's, responsibility to fix a problem that does not exist.

Jedi Academy is not a roleplaying game. That is why it lacks the features you desire. You knew this when you chose to use it as a platform for your roleplaying. If those features were so important to you, then you should have chosen a better platform. You didn't.

The lack of those features is a direct consequence of a choice you made. Your choice. The consequences are for you and you alone to deal with.

The OJP team said they have no interest in developing an RPG mod. So stop asking them.

You obviously have no inkling of just how much it is you're asking for, but let me tell you, it is an unreasonable amount. We're talking about weeks, perhaps months of work.

That's not a "reasonable request" at all.

Like I said, Jedi Academy is an action game. It comes from a line of action games. The Dark Forces/Jedi Knight series is, traditionally, an action game. The stated goal of OJP is to continue that tradition and make JA the game it should have been from day one.

They said "no". A long time ago. That's the end of the matter.

If you keep pressing it, all you're going to accomplish is harassing and pressuring them almost to the point of bullying, and possibly making them outright angry. Either way they end up hating this game and it'scommunity, and then they'll leave. OJP will then fall apart. Is that what you're trying to achieve?

Seriously, think before you act.

And, honestly. The fact that you can have "roleplay servers" in JA doesn't make it an RPG any more than "roleplay servers" would make Call Of Duty or Unreal Tournament an RPG. To be honest with ya, roleplaying games traditionally have far more interaction than you'll ever have with another player in any modern game, even those within the RPG genre. So really, even "roleplaying games" aren't really roleplaying games.


Oh, and for the record, "morale" is the capacity of a group of people to pull together persistently and consistently in pursuit of a common purpose.

And one other thing. About telling people to "shut the **** up", and other such uncivil mannerisms.

I strongly advise you to start acting civil in your interactions with other people. Do you know why?

Because a retarded, childish, "Everyone's not agreeing with me so I'll get nasty!" attitude is not going to get you anywhere in life.



razorace: See above. It's not about the "right" way to play.

It's about people dealing with the consequences of their actions and choices, and not expecting everyone else to fix things so that they can have their cake and eat it too.

He was basically expecting the OJP team to do a whole ton of work that they didn't want to do, simply because he wants to play a roleplaying game but is too stubborn to actually go play one.

Does that sound at all reasonable or remotely fair to you?
