Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

If you guys are referring to wondering whether or not I ever actually activated the Utwig Bomb… of course I did!… but not before making the necessary precaution of saving my save game file to a separate location prior… I'm curious to see how you'll explain this, as your time portal system can't hel...

Re: Sequels strife

That’s basically the agreement P&F offered last year. I’d hope Stardock would take a bigger hit now that they’ve seen they’re losing this case. We don't know anything with certainty about who is winning or losing; the Court's rulings so far have all been procedural, and never reached the merits of ...

Re: Sequels strife

Any realistic speculation on what the terms of the settlement might be? Anything anyone (including me) says at this point is going to be pure speculation. If I were to guess, I would say that the highest probability outcome is a "let's walk away" agreement, wherein both sides keep the rights they w...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I also find it curious why the Druuge wouldn’t even throw out an offer for another Deep Children Egg for one of these worthless trinkets. I guess 2 is all they need. If you could sell off all of your Egg Casings, you could render the game unwinnable. ------------------------------------------------...

Re: Sequels strife

So what exactly does “Summary Judgment” do then? I though it was in used lieu of a trial. Or is a trial what happens when the judge has insufficient information to rule? In a court case, there are usually two types of questions to be answered: Questions of fact, i.e. "What actually happened?", and ...

Re: Sequels strife

What happens in October? Or was that an arbitrary date? (And why does this feel like a pun?) That's when the summary judgement motions need to be filed, where both sides need to clearly spell out their legal arguments, so that the Judge can rule on them in November. After that, there's a mandatory ...

Anything new? I have to sue someone myself, so it reminded me of this thread.
Nope. Not likely to be any major news until October.

Re: Sequels strife

...the impression I’m getting from his emails and such is that he felt he had bought himself a lot of favor and credit with his fandom. He had. People were genuinely thrilled that a new SC game would finally be made, and many of the original fans became Stardock "Founders". But much of that fan ent...

Re: Sequels strife

Apparently, SCO is off GOG again, something about P&F DMCAing GOG’s ISP? Anyone have any insight? All we know at this point is that the game is no longer available on GOG. We don't have any reliable information about the cause until/unless it shows up in a court filing, or somebody posts actual doc...

Re: Sequels strife

...Ford's (alleged) refusal to hand over evidence before his deposition, thus making it more difficult for Stardock's attorneys to find stuff in the material they can ask questions about during the deposition. P&F are making similar complaints (p3): 10 Unfortunately, Stardock failed to comply with ...
