Are you playing the demo? Holiday mode is not an option in the demo.

Hi, as Super Bladesman says, are you playing the demo? If you're playing the full game, does it go straight to the status screen when you try to go on holiday?

should be more subtle, get him to admit he is not playing the demo, he is on the full game THEN bring out the pirate jokes.

Anyway shinobigoh M'lad, buy the game its only be 30 gold pieces.

Never too early for the pirate jokes!

Arrrrr is that an oil tanker I see ahead, perhaps I shall see if any of these here land lubbers have a copy of FM09 what they actually paid for arrrrrrrrr

I guess he won't need the patch for FM though eh? eh? geddit?

Hmmm...still no ban...

CaptainPlanet
20-11-2008, 10:09
Because he hasn't admitted he's playing the full game yet, although I doubt he'll be back, last activity 09:13.

That's because he's not stated whether he's playing the full game or the demo version. In future, can we keep all pirating jokes away, at least until someone's admitted to it. For all we know, he may well have been playing the demo (I asked where the holiday option was on this year's demo - the first time I'd actually bothered playing the demo).

Remember folks, innocent 'til proven guilty. :thup:

yarrr, tis true, tis true GillsMan

Sorry about that.........

Meh, in future, you've got to leave pirates enough rope to hang themselves. If he admits to playing the full game, we can ban him, if he admits to playing the demo, we can simply set him straight. But calling people a pirate (even if that's what we were all thinking) before we even know whether he's playing the full game is a little OTT in my opinion. Just saying, like.

CaptainPlanet
20-11-2008, 10:19
Fair enough, but if he gets banned and the thread gets locked, there is no public ridicule!

It is always the ones that just the board, I was accused of being a pirate the other day because I got a crash dump on the 24th July 09, that was over the top.

What he said. Give people enough rope to hang themselves.

I would use Ter's use of the word 'rope' to make another reference to you know what, but I won't.......coz I can't think of one mainly!

Maybe you should make some difference between the Demo holiday and the other one? Like asking the question "Where do you want to go on holiday?" when trying to activate the option.

CaptainPlanet
20-11-2008, 10:45
The demo holiday is greyed out and can't even be clicked on, the full game pirated copy it isn't greyed out but instead returns them to the status screen.

I played the demo and the holiday option was clickable and returned me to the status screen - maybe there's a difference between the Strawberry and Vanilla versions of the demo? Since the crack is simply a demo extender, I'd expect the cracked version to operate in the same way as the demo, in terms of inability to holiday, and getting sacked after your first season and so on and so forth.

Torres09

People that play a cracked version should have to go on holiday to a Desert Island..........can you see where this is going?

Correct - it only lasts 6 months in game time so there is little point really.

*wonders if the OP will actually come back now saying he is playing the full game. Would deserve the ban for stupidy alone* :D

edit: Too late :D
