look attachment for example of what i explained in my previous post
lucaf's screenshot shows ctrl+shift version of connection list, as his racer name is not the same as license name, for example.
also like i said, hostname cannot be empty. it goes empty only when you press ctrl+shift, because dedicated server doesnt have an assigned license to it.
EDIT: Okay, my bad, I think I have misunderstood this argument. Sorry. You are right though, it could be faked, the only way to know this is to post the connection list without ctrl+shift pressed on to see that who is using which name in-game. I don't see what profit lucaf could have by faking screenshots like that, though.
mybad for screenshots. the chat i printscreened while driving and I missed his logging, the username shot I took later from the MPR. Here is the full chat chat from mpr, where you see his logging with username+playername
also mpr attached, the episode is almost at the end of mpr xD
But even then it would be obvious that ctrl+shift is not pressed and it's player names as almost always there are some colors and special characters in the names while user names are in grey. You'd have to be in a server where everyone has a simple grey name. How often does that happen? Unless it's a server with very few people (which also would raise suspicion whether the pic is not fake).
when you say grey. you naturally mean the bluish grey color right?
its not grey as in grey grey. more as in blue/grey.
seem legit to me and also why would lucaf fake the image..
and also small fact. i too am pretty sure this name was the one i saw trying to get into a server but it couldnt due to joos-car error. im still looking for that though. and also when on server you dont always think about screenshotting stuff. as you probably is doing other things while youre in lfs.
glad for them and for you if they decide to come here
I share your point on the lawyer, unless being a friend, it may be very very expensive, to not speak about the stress and time to spend following the thing ... If the people came here, back or fresh, by themselves, it is a lot better for you guys
Good to hear, too bad my local currency can't be used to exchange goods internationally, I had to convert from the blackmarket to get my licence back in the days, I think many country's are in this situation and there is nothing we can do about it.
I will find another way when I upgrade to s3, because I will not reuse the blackmarket as it's related and supporting various illegal activities.
Scaven, u want LFS support by banning people who buyed S2 because of someone from them sometimes play on LFSPro...?
Let's face it. LFS is the most expensive sim (except iRacing) which has been developing slowly in recent years, very little content and mods are banned. It was good sim but then rFactor 2 and Assetto Corsa were came out. U had very good technology but u killing it...
I have two important questions...
When New Graphics content with day-night cycle will be released?
When New Tire Physics will be released?
Get a job and LFS won't be so expensive. The amount of content you get at the current price is fair. If you don't think it's appropriate, don't buy it. There will be other people who will support LFS, dont worry
I said, it' expensive in compare to other sims. Please, read what i wrote.
LFS S2 - 24 pounds for 20 cars and 7 tracks...
Assetto Corsa w/ all DLCs - 15 pounds for 178 cars, lot of tracks and mods...
Of course, I will never buy LFS again or give any support after what Scaven said... I just wanted to say what i think.
No,they're banning people because of advertising a site that earns money from LFS dev's work. Would you welcome people who practically minimizes your earnings and and work practically for bread and butter only?
36 pounds for lifetime licence,stats tracking,skin up-/downloads and reliable masterserver (unless one of you idiots decide to disturb it) - that's actually a bargain. Also for some countries it's even cheaper. How long do you expect rF2,AC and other fast developed sims to carry on their services? I don't think they're gonna keep servers for older version up for long while the newer one is their moneymaker.
That's the way they're doing it,that's their decision. We can't affect it and the earlier you accept it,the better. If you don't like it,don't buy it,it's a simple world out there. I personally also would like to see bunch of new cars to cover some other racing classes and new tracks to race them in. But - I can't do anything about it,so I just enjoy what's possible as long it's there. While with some creativity there are still possible new things - league types,racing disciplines. It was the community that back in years made LFS so big as it was then,it's still up to community to make the best out of the sim.
It's done,when it's done. If you're not happy with developing pace and think it can be done better - why don't you make a sim yourself? And the watch your work beeing stolen by some offshore skank
and earning the bucks you should earn. Come back and report about your success in...2-3 years? Surely you can do it!
PS. While writing this,I saw that the post above was posted before from account name "versiu". Why you're hiding behind demo account? Affraid from something? I thought you don't like LFS as it is,so you don't your account anymore?
Besides, what's the deal with damn cars and tracks? Sure a new track environment would be refreshing, as well as the LX8 GTR / RB4 GTR / VWS / ( and it's race car version... why not? ). I do not mind...
But quantity itself would only take you so far. Requires quality to support it! I am happy to see new tire physics and bigger support for layout and once again I will be on.
Yeah, cracked stuff is no good, especially if never going will to buy. I would understand if it's 100% to take a legit one in near-future, but... hm most people... not a chance to will!
And you obviously intentionally left out the part about stealing the work and earning money from it. Would like to read your opinion about it,mr.Cracker. But of course - the logic thinking is going only as far as your own interest reaches,right?
Also - what about the hiding part? Say it from your actual account,don't be affraid,it's already too late as moderators can see the deleted message anyway.
Because I'm not dev i this situation, I'm the player. Earning money from stealing work is not right but like I said, I'm not dev here. I don't even knew that LFSPro "devs" earning money from that... This changing the whole situation.
Why? Because I do not want to get banned because someone did not understand what I wanted to say...
But it happened anyway:
Please, give me proof that I ever played on LFSPro... Can u?
