AVG constantly does that. Just set *tomb4.exe as an exception. (The asterisk is needed)
Turn it off. Play offline. Unfortunately there are no other solutions :(

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I happen to have made comparisons a few times. I very recently mentioned some other game just to make a point. But never in a derogatory manner as I think it's unfair to our builders who actually perform miracles. It's just that you can't compare apples with oranges. As for the irony, I can see it,...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Don't misunderstand me, you are of course free to ask to remove this level, but I'm pretty sure that it won't happen and I wanted to give you another perspective on this review. If you don't want to see that, well then it's your problem. Your words also convey this attitude of many builders out the...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

That's ok, I also usually don't play levels I don't like, but there is a huge difference between I don't do that and I don't do that, therefore nobody should be allowed to do that . In short, what Michael should (and probably will) do is to establish if Magnus's marks are indeed a result of compari...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I personally happen to disagree. I might not disagree if I re-read the said review taking into account what you just said but I'm not even going to give it a try because what I felt when I read it first was that he was actually making a comparison. If he's being ironic, well, maybe he lacks the kna...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

You might think about Magnus' reviews how you like and I think every point that can be made about them has already been made, but IMO Magnus didn't actually compare your level to Fallout. He mentioned it in his review, but he never put any direct comparison - in the first sentence it's just a story...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I understand your grievance,Talos. It's not my place to comment or question Michael's decision to let Magnus' review/s through. Magnus always reviews true to form: commenting on a levels faults first;then commenting on its faults some more; before ending the review with a comment on its faults. His...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

You do know what I think... I think. But, please, do keep in mind that, in spite of the odd sillier reviews, reviewers at trle are a nice bunch. Meanwhile, professional critics are usually known for being idiots who get paid for that and have at least some power to destroy somebody else's professio...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Talos, as much as I generally agree with you about Magnus, I think "insult" is too heavy word for his reviews. When it's about Magnus, I think it's a simple "all or none" decision that Michael had to make and he chose "all". Having in mind that Magnus equally mocks all BtB levels, removing one woul...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Agree. You're a bit hot-headed right now and I can sympathise. We're a community and builders (or level designers), reviewers and players are all needed to make it work. Otherwise, one would end up building levels for him/herself and eventually, I assume, giving up. An artist isn't an artist if he/...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I believe you can request removal and you just have. As long as it makes perfect sense, I don't see why not. Another option would be for Magnus to change his review but I don't think he's been around for a while. I know other LD asked for (and obtained) a removal a review less bad or offensive to m...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

Good. Just don't say you'll never build any BtB level again because you may change your mind sometime. Don't do it because of one senseless review. No but I also have problems with the editor of BtB (my pc) The other reviews are fine, but not that. Because of that review didn't want to edit, but th...

Re: Should the scoring system of level reviews be abolished on here?

I did read the review yesterday. That was Magnus. ;) I agree. To solidly base one's review on a comparison to a pro-game, Fallout in the current case, is senseless to say the least. I just officially requested the removal of the review, which does not respect any parameters, much less off topic fro...
