Just a couple thoughts

Hey guys, long time lurker, but I don't think I've ever posted anything. I just wanted to share a couple thoughts.

I'm sort of wondering what the point of this forum really is. I've been lurking for what seems like ages, and although I wouldn't consider myself anywhere near a competent hacker/glitcher/modder, I would consider myself decent with computers. But what I've noticed is that there's a lot of releases of different mods and hacks, and a lot of questions, but no questions are really ever answered.

I mean, I understand that the veteran users who understand this stuff completely don't want to waste their time with every single poorly-written "help me wit dis plz??!" post. I get it. But there are plenty of genuine questions I've seen that just go unanswered, with the usual "Google it" or "Figure it out yourself". If the question is "What does this mod do?" (because, really, it seems every release is just a link, and really never explains much), especially for the really game-breaking ones, Googling does next to nothing. Besides, experimentation with this stuff could really mess up your computer if you don't know what you're doing.

I guess what I'm getting at is, if all the competent users refuse to actually help any new users understand this stuff, why even have a forum? It seems these "pro" guys just sit around here all day waiting for a new release so they can read all the questions and sit back going "Yeah I know how this works, but I'm never going to tell you".

Again, I get that a lot of the posts are really stupid, and people simply don't read the OP. But I read every written word, and I still don't understand half of this stuff. The only thing I've ever downloaded was a fossil restoration mod. The rest, I either didn't understand, or felt asking for assistance would get me absolutely nowhere.

I have a really large interest in stuff like this - at least in theory. Again, I'm no codehead programmer, but I can appreciate people wanting to push the limits of the game, and test the exploits to see what they can do. That's all really interesting to me. I'd love to get into it, if I thought there was a helpful community. There's not, though. So maybe just get rid of the forum, 'cause it really serves no purpose other than giving these veteran hackers a boner off refusing newbies help. Maybe just make a blank page with links to new mods.

Maybe the so-called veteran hackers learned this stuff on their own and learned it the hard way rather than having everything handed to them. Maybe they want these noobs to learn it the hard way because it's more beneficial. Or maybe everyone likes to troll every once in while.

I get that. But it's a forum. The goal is to, y'know... talk to people, help people out, share ideas, etc. Not wait for releases and then compare e-penises and brag about how you "learned it the hard way". I know people shouldn't have everything handed to them, but there's seriously like ZERO support whatsoever, even to people who would be willing to learn. That's what is so curious.

You can't say there is zero support it's just the bare minimum... I mean it gets old when 100 ppl are all asking the same question...

I liked you better when you lurked, and didn't post about your imaginary consequences of using mods incorrectly.

Absolutely, not beneficial in anyway. Go back to your twittering, facespace or mybook if you want people to pretend to be interested in what you have to say.

Hacks in 2moons have worked for a very long time and in between have been patched alot. We all remember when sparky hacked 2moons and ownt it. Right away, a patch came following it and all the hacks were patched and have been for a while. *Patched to the public atleast* I personally think that 2moons NEEDS hackers and Acclaim knew that and was taking advantage of the hackers. They had a back-up patch all along, in cases where it goes too far. Sometimes, hackers improve the game and acclaim left...

is there a program or hack that can guess/know when it might fail when you upgrade a weapon? for a example i have a weapon +4, it has a big probability that this weapon will get destroy if i upgrade it to +5 right? so is there a program or hack that can determine if it has a very high probability off getting failure or success? just a thought hahahaha:D

im so sick and tired of everyone complaining about noobs getting such awesome equipment because they buy dbs and trade them for cps. this patch hasnt changed anything. one mercury dbs were selling for 10kk. If a noob bought 50 dbs and then sold them they would have 500kk. now there is almost nothing you couldnt buy for 500kk. noob protection is going to convince more noobs to come to the game thus more customers for tq. whether or not anybody likes it they are running a business.
