TRNG-based custom level FMVs don't play properly

Hey all, This was brought to my attention by a mutual friend of this community known as Natanyaho (who discovered custom levels with a TRNG-based exe, have recently started having problems properly loading FMVs, resulting in black screens that never end up loading the level and leaving you stuck unl...

Re: So What Are We Doing During Lockdown?

Writing stories, watching YouTube videos, providing voiceovers for fan projects, learning how to make mods for Marvel Ultimate Alliance and keeping various folks sane on multiple Discord servers during this epidemic. Reviews for custom levels from me have kinda been put on the backburner for the tim...

Re: Neon God - crashing problem

P.S. There will be another significant Microsoft change at the end of the year when they end support and availability for the Visual C redistributables before 2015. That may make some plugins in newer levels fail. I can't find any info online to confirm this statement. But if it is indeed true, it ...

Download speeds for custom levels are unusually slow

Hi, I've noticed while downloading some random custom levels for reviews that the overall download speed is significantly lower than usual, taking substantially longer to complete (which proves especially tedious for larger filesized releases). And just to make sure that it simply isn't my PC, I've ...

Re: Does anybody else...

I've been tempted to a couple times over the years, but I just learn to live with it and move on (being more wary of my writing in newer reviews, thanks to my gained skills as a proofreader). Despite how personally grating it is to see a number of errors in my older critiques regardless (which I'd n...

Re: Fake Reviews on Mehrbod's level

I'd mind that tongue of yours Pedro. It only gets ya into trouble. Considering you're already on thin ice within this community as a whole (with an overwhelming amount of evidence to back that up), I'd be looking more into redeeming your tarnished reputation rather than passive-aggressively attack a...

Re: Fake Reviews on Mehrbod's level

^I still believe Reggie's findings are something to be taken seriously (regardless of this likely being a one-off scenario). If one's reviewer identity can be easily hijacked out of the blue with no way to know who did the deed, something needs to be done to ensure it doesn't end up happening again ...

Re: Ceamonks890

...contrary to a few other people posting in this thread I have no issue at all with Ceamonks' way of scoring and reviewing. Am I always in agreement with his scores or the way he is wording things and do I think he writes his comments with a suffcient level of empathy for both the builder and the ...

Re: Ceamonks890

Actually, 10/10 was never "flawless", it's "wow, superb, amazing". So I don't agree with your reasoning, especially when nobody else reviews like you and you only review certain levels, so your "system" damages some ratings while leaving other ones intact. You single-handedly create a very inaccura...

Re: Cemonks890

I'm sure Mehrbod is able and willing to evolve. You have to realize your review was way too heavy for a 17-year old (right, you're 26 but that already makes a huge difference in ways), especially its tone and I think you should ponder whether it's more constructive than destructive. One learns to m...

^Oh well, never mind then. Doesn't hurt to reaffirm my stance to those whom aren't informed regardless. @Jorge22 Thank you for your objective response. It's always refreshing to hear outlooks from cooler heads. I can only hope Mehrbod learns to do the same, if he ever decides to return from this pre...

Re: Ceamonks890

^Ah, you're not the first to inquire about my reasoning for not giving 10s in my reviews nor are you likely to be the last. My reasoning for that is simple... I feel giving 10s indicates to the average joe, that a given levelset is flawless and possesses no issues or room for justified scrutiny (whi...

Re: Ceamonks890

OK. I can understand your disgust of my earlier words on TRF from December 2019 Mehrbod and in regards to that, I genuinely apologize (as I certainly could have worded things better then, with the knowledge I have now). I've always been a pretty blunt person when it comes to expressing myself (Not d...

Re: Mehrbod...

Also, when you say "What's wrong with the old menus", well, I can tell you maybe everyone is loooking for an improvement... we have to all agree that the UI has become old-fashioned and doesn't suit a 2019 game. As far as I'm concerned, all of the Tomb Raider Game developing companies "starting fro...
