On the FSD site, that admin said they have it, it works, but no release date planned. WTF? Others said, "We have it, it works like...no release time planned...concerned about XBL cheating." To that, I always said people would get banned anyway so why worry? Then, no release comes, and then on some other site a person mentions it, then it is once again revealed to exist then the process repeats. If something is done, f_(*&ing release it. It is not a matter of PROGRESS so much as people say "It is done, we use it, but are not going to share it." Pathetic, at lease other scenes share things. @Jordan; what site now?
I think this will be the last time I'll bother responding to you...since you very clearly are unable to understand. Just because a developer claims to "have it", and that "it works", doesn't mean it's in any form whatsoever for anyone else to use. In many cases in FSD we implement features that can *only* be invoked via debug commands that do not exist in released versions. There is no user interface, there is no way to set options, there is no way to configure it. Think about it for a minute. If you were writing code (I know, this is a stretch) and you had no idea if it would ever work...would you spend ANY time on making sure it was presentable, or usable by anyone else?
However, we "have it", and "it works." Does that make sense to you? There are TONS of things sitting in my dev environment that "work" but are in no way ready for anyone else to use.
Unfortunately, taking something from the stage where it "works" to the stage where other people can use it is a huge percentage of the total effort. We're working on a lot of other things in FSD at the moment...when we get time, and the trainer engine makes it to the top of the priority list...it'll receive some attention. Kids like you complaining that admins aren't responding to your PMs does not, in any way, positively affect the release date of features.
