McAfee set to expire in a week.. Good free alternatives?

I'm a big fan of Avast, that's what I put on all the computers I work on for people. I also am a fan of SuperAntiSpyware as a backup. Avast gives you the real time protection while SAS catches some of the sneakier stuff that slows your computer down.

Game denied. My mapping needs "some pretty serious help." That's less than helpful...

Everyone's advice is solid. The only thing I have to add is try to look at your maps more realistically. Some of the maps you have are just impossible. Try to find a way to give the illusion of a three dimensional world.

But IMHO I've seen worse games get accepted. The video actually made the game look mildly interesting and I think with some mapping help, you could have a decent game here.

New American Bill Proposes making selling non-ESRB rated games illegal

Locke hit the nail on the head. Some company paid a senator to introduce this bill. The government is controlled by corporations. If enough money was put forth to enough politicians, this bill would go through without a problem. Thankfully, that will probably never happen since the money it would cost to get the bill passed would cost more than the money they'd make from it.

Really wish those tiles were painted instead of pixel art, but good looking resources nonetheless. I do like those sprites way better than the default ones. Their shape looks so much more proportionate.

Haha, I knew someone would catch that.

The wording actually says you 'should' be an owner, not 'must' be an owner. Should implies that you don't necessarily have to be, but it is preferred. If they cared about stopping people, they should use stronger language.

Quick Question

Good point. Though I should probably note that the placeholder maps and all the eventing is already done on them, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

For how long it was left up (it might still be, idk), without any implications on the page itself not to download it if you didn't own it, I really can't say they were that concerned about losing income from it. While I'm against pirating software, if a company leaves downloads up with software keys for weeks, without ever mentioning the legality of downloading it without purchasing, I don't think that really falls into pirating the software. That would be like (using someone elses example), someone putting out a plate of cookies on a dinner table, then after they've all been eaten, doing nothing about it.

Of mystical havens and light FX

I spend about 9 hours a day on the computer and have arthritis from all the times I've broken my right arm (I'm right handed). One of the biggest things that helps is doing simple wrist strengthening exercises and taking breaks. Your best defense is a good offense!

@pepsi there is a tool in ace that lets you do that, but im not sure about vx. The map looks great though.
