I appreciate Inkblot’s efforts for the community he’s helped galvanize over the years. Same goes for Ponder, I have a lot of respect and hold him in high regard.
Recently, I was inspired to give something to the community myself, in fact, with Execution Aid. I figured, if anyone would appreciate my small contribution, it would be these guys most of all (well, “small contribution” compared to something like “GGPO”, in any case). But actually, that wasn’t the case. Ink(Out?) curtly said something like “that’s only for scrubs”. He wasn’t even interested in the spreadsheet/APM-like aspect of it! Others close to him on the food chain were similarly non-plused. Belaboring the point trying to explain its precision of milliseconds only got me banished from town like a snake oil salesman by one of them.
So look, if either one of you guys are having a bad day and feeling like no one appreciates what you’re trying to do, just know that I know how that feels now, for whatever that’s worth. Well, not, “fully loaded new Nissan” knows how it feels, but I think I get the basic drift. I’ve BEEN there man. Gimme a high five! Awright!! I’m down! don’t leamme hangin here…
btw in PGR2, all of you can still “get the basic drift” of that Nissan, it’s in the class with the BMW M3 and Audi S4 and if you crash it, it still drives like new and you can even race your own ghost or that of another person; you can’t even do that in real life.
