Even funnier because usually it's the reverse ,) It's the primary reason i do not help (as in, post constructive criticism and some obvious flaws) in forums when I lurked them a while and noticed some things beforehand. For example, had you told me posting on Soldak requires my post to be approved (obvious anti-spam thing) I would not have posted there at all. Not because I dislike the practice (no, in fact its a good idea) but because when it takes a day or so for my topic to appear that means a day of me being very closely interacting with the game is gone without anything coming out of it. By the time the topic appears, I already moved on
unless it's like.. a game about Ponies, or something. I am hugely erratic in my Interest, and just because I buy a game, does not mean it even holds my attention for longer than an hour when I read a topic about an old game I'd really like to play again (Mhh, starlancer!)
As for the Steam thing, it's probably because the keys are keygenned would also be activate*able on steam and steam sorta took a stance against this lately. It does not make me hugely unhappy because the auto-patcher in AVWW is superior to steam any day of the week, but I sure would like to see it in my library properly.
But seeing as its now been what 8 weeks and nobody yet said it works, I am gonna assume it's never gonna work
At least that way, we can stop caring ;p
