Open Letter to Apple

2009-10-03 10:40:14 by TomFulp

Two weeks ago, my iPhone 3G stopped working. Apparently the simcard reader died.

My one year warranty had expired in July, so I had to pay for a replacement.

If my AT&T contract was up I could have gotten the subsidy and upgraded to an iPhone 3GS for $200, however my contract runs until December so a 3GS would be $500.

Stuck in a contract but without a working phone, I had to pay $200 for a new iPhone 3G. I would like it if the Apple warranty could last as long as I'm stuck in an AT&T contract.

So I was gonna complain about paying all that money for a phone that died after 14 months, but my new phone is now having similar problems that require frequent reboots. I did a little research and it appears the latest iPhone OS is buggy and leads to problems that can't be solved by a factory restore.

I THINK I just paid $200 attempting to fix a software bug that Apple doesn't seem to be acknowledging. Now I have to schedule another appointment with your genius bar and see if I can get my $200 back.

In other news I updated Madness Accelerant throughout the week so check it out.


Madness Game Update

The file takes forever to compile so it's really dragging out the final details. I still have a personal deadline of 11pm at the latest but hopefully considerably sooner! It WILL launch on Madness Day though...!

Third Pair of CC Shoes

I feel like all my posts nowadays are about Castle Crashers shoes but I always want to make a note of it when I see them. Curlyboy8 suggested that Brass Monki make a pair of CC shoes, so here they are!

Madness Day Game

2009-08-18 18:45:13 by TomFulp

This is pretty rough but I wanted to share something for once... A sneak peak at this year's Madness Day game! It exists in a weird fan-fiction arc where Madness 7 directly follows the events of Madness Regent, and the clown isn't quite dead yet.

Right now I got weapon swaps, non-weapon melee, pipe hanging and Krinkel's original clown art. This pipe fight is the first scene I'm working on, but the goal is to mimic the events of Madness 7 as closely as possible, with alternate reality weapons to spice things up. Just one month to go!

More Castle Crashers Shoes

We got this in the Behemoth inbox:

"I recently celebrated my 21st birthday, during which I received what I believe might be the most awesome present ever given to me. I was handed a shoebox by a friend of mine the morning after my party only to find a pair of Converse shoes inside that she had custom-embroidered the knights from Castle Crashers onto. She did this with nothing more than a needle, thread, and a photo. I've worn the shoes basically non-stop for three days; I cannot seem to take them off."

I had some dark days during the development of Castle Crashers but this stuff makes it worth it!

In other news, despite a bunch of other ongoing projects, I'm gonna make an ATTEMPT at a Madness Day game. I already started by tweaking the engine to allow weapon swaps, but there are a few other technical hurdles I want to jump before fully committing.
