    Just played my first game in Beginners for v40. Was planning on just observing, so I didn’t buy anything except a bundle of Missiles, and that was on accident. Actually did pretty decent for no chutes, batts, or weapons (other than the Missiles), as can be seen in the scoreboard shot here:

    This is mid-way through Round 10, and you can see my accumulated money as $855,568. With no further income during the round, end-of-round interest at 33% should have put me at 1,137,905 (plus change).

    Round ends, and…
    http://www.aracnet.com/~ebonite/money-post.bmp
    $999,999 total money. I got jacked for $137,906. It’s not like I got mugged by some bum on the street for $20. We’re talking Real Moneyβ„’ here. I don’t know how it is for the rest of you people, but out here in Oregon, you can buy a house for that much.

    Not to mention it affects my stats. Taking my 10 kills into the Money I was credited for, and I’m running $10,000 per kill. Take the same 10 kills into the money I was supposed to earn and I’m bringing in a noteworthy $11,379 per kill, a 14% difference. All my money based stats will be negatively affected by this, so I’m asking for a change to be made so this tragedy will not occur in the future.

    Ebo is making this post tongue-in-cheek. Mostly, he is taking the opportunity to show off his money collecting skills. He is fully aware Mr. Camp & Co. is taking care of IMPORTANT issues with the game, and requesting all other work be halted to add an extra digit to the money tracker is purely ridiculous. He is also poking fun at people who post with “world ending” problems that must be fixed “right now!” Ebo would like to point out that while adding a 7th digit to the money would be nice, it would also be exceedingly rare for the issue to come up again, if ever. No animals were harmed in the making of this documentary. Batteries must be charged before using. Legalese must be translated by a lawyer. NoMoreCBX and Steve550f are to blame for the black text bit. What color does cowbell sound like?

    EDIT: Images aren’t coming through, so I changed them to urls.

    Tragedy, I tells ya!

    Start of Round 9, after Round 8 interest has been applied.
    http://www.aracnet.com/~ebonite/round9.bmp

    End of Round 10, with final interest.
    http://www.aracnet.com/~ebonite/final.bmp

    At least 768,900 lost into the ether. πŸ˜₯ I won’t mention that I accidentally bought 2 bundles of parachutes in Round 2 and had to sell all those back at a loss.

    Oh, and all you need on Beginners is Baby Missiles. πŸ˜‰

    He ain’t so special … :P.. and I used the normal server 8)

    It’s actually not that hard with the new settings. Takes out the challenge of making the most cash out of your shot (perfect shot for best health reward) .. automatic 10k.

    Oh and the cowbell picture .. Cowbell (aka NoMoreSteve) .. i spent the whole game with no purchases. Not even parachutes. I was resting on a small isle off the main land, and he sent of all things a death head at me.

    I SURVIVE!

    I know I can hit 2 mil. In fact, I think I could have hit 2 mil on that last game if I hadn’t bought those parachutes in the first round.

    I hate it when I buy in the first round!
    About time someone said something about the hidden messages. We were beginning to worry about ya’s.

    It was fun to get it , but all in all a boring game. Had 942,000 after round 9 woulda been fun if it rolled.

    I find this rather troubling that people are doing this when I’m in the game.

    Too bad that Willis didn’t show the last line after I said “how poetic”. The words “I Willis’ed on Willis” followed.

    Then weeping followed when I found out he had no chutes.

    I’d like to join this sacred club, but I enjoy buying the big weapons too much. Maybe if you guys came up with a patch or a T-shirt, I’d give it a try. ❗
    A cowbell smells like the color 9.

    Given that Scorched is based on a “classic” game, the moeny should do the classic thing, and not add another digit, but roll back to zero! πŸ˜›
