However Micromancers does not close completely, they will simply continue to develop new software for other systems,...but no longer for MSX... Crying Crying Crying Crying Crying

I hope they will consider offering download versions (paid is fine) of their games...

I don't know why a whole community needs to suffer from the bath mouthing of a few people? I mean, they sold probably a few hundred games per title with equally the same amount of users. So we are talking about 0,1% of total users that have some sort of bias towards the people behind Micromancers and that's enough to quit? Hell, if we react the same way here the MRC wouldn't have survived a year Wink

Come on Micromancers, we love you here. Don't quit because someone bullies you. Look around and see all the people who do appreciate your work.

Exactly my thoughts.

I'm very sad... it's a terrible new... I hope they reconsider return back to their magnificent work... if the issue was a f***ing stupid "user", he can't beat thousands of people that love their and all the other homebrew projects that dedicate all the love in their games! COME BACK PLEASE! WE LOVE YOUR WORK!

I don't think really this is a matter of looking for guilty. This is a hobby, so:

  • If you get fun, you continue doing this.
  • If not, you stop doing it and move to another topic.

Do you mean that Micromancers takes pleasure just with praise from users and that if a few people don't do it he loses all pleasure?

According to an article on unmundoderetrojuegos one of the reasons to close down is piracy. It's in Spanish, but google translate or deepl is your friend.

I do not believe it too much because I have seen games from Micromancers other than MSX circulating. It is not just on MSX that people copy software. It's inevitable. Micromancers only stops the MSX. The MSX community is not large so the software sell less that's all. It's not especially because of piracy. It's the same with the hardware. If Micromancers stopped because of this, it would mean that the busyness was not paying enough on MSX. So nothing to do with the hobby (even if without funding there is no hobby). And in this case, don't bother to insist Micromancers won't come back just like Kralizec. It would be more honest to say it instead of making users feel guilty to tear each other apart.

"Piracy" is a bit of an oversimplification of the issue described in the article; I get the impression that there was a sustained campaign against micromancers going on, in which a call for piracy was but one of the weapons.
