What? This makes no sense to me. Cosmoteer does not "install" .NET Core, it's built in to the game files themselves. Installing .NET Core beforehand will not do anything, there will still be another copy built into the game that Cosmoteer actually uses.
I discovered what the cause is. When I installed the new version, I used the server which I had not used previously. Because parts were tied to onedrive, an annoying issue, system included the game drive as well in system backup. Easy yet annoyingly fixable.
That being said, I can't honestly review this title at this time. I and my peers follow a ruleset, and can't honestly recommend a title, as great as it is, if a company has a ruleset where users must follow, yet comoany staff feels their above the rules.
When staff ping a user or reporter like myself, if we have time, well respond where it originated from. When a mod can warn or even ban a user for responding to the owners ping in the first place, there is something seriously wrong with that system.
When I recommend titles for others, it's because not only is that title good, but also the team works well together and respects their superiors decisiins. I can't honestly support a product, where the owner messages a user in a channel, and then gets chastised for it by mods who seem to have their own rulesets. Had this been on Steam, just for what took place would have given the title a negative review.
I been in this industry since the 80s before Steam, GOG, were even a thought. I try to help sometimes as well, especially when I see someone new about to repeat the same thing like what has just seriously hurt Chucklefish. Been a reporter for years, moderator as well, and shockingly first tine I can say got into an argument with one, when it was again staff pinging me over there in the first place. Game is great, staff needs a little work.
Thanks for the feedback. Upon reviewing the chat logs (including deleted posts), I believe that my staff were correct in warning you because you continued to post in #ask-walt even after I asked you to move to #general. If you didn't see my request amidst all the chaos, that's completely understandable, but my staff's warning was still correctly issued. (And after all, a warning is no big deal and has no real consequences. I don't believe anyone has ever been banned from the server for violating an #ask-walt rule.) The fault is mine for creating unnecessary confusion by holding a conversation in #ask-walt against my own rules. I apologize for that.
Do you have an email I can respond to? I definately don't want to continue/ respond here, it just looks bad and unprofessional, worse than on Discord. From what I just read, Has me concerned, not to mention I actually tried pming you before all this took place and unable to.
