Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

That's a pretty limiting viewpoint. Perhaps RadSpyro feels he can contribute best that way, but I do not. I made it clear when I signed up for writer, I felt I'd actually be better for level design. Now I understand that one of those is gone and I'll likely get the spot, but even if I don't I've still got interest and input in that area, not only because of my viewpoint that the writers should hold off on story until things like enemy testing has commenced, or aesthetic theme for levels has been more discussed, not only is that a reason for me to focus on these areas at this time, but because despite the title I was given, I am more that that, and do have input. Do you see what I'm saying?

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

We need organization, and we need structure. Maintaining each of these things is Stormy's role in this project, and hers alone. In a team environment the team should focus on their talents and trust that the manager knows what they are doing. You may not trust Stormy, but you have only been here a week, you don't know her. I think I can speak for most everyone else here when I say that I do.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

I see what you're saying, but you don't seem to be seeing what I'm saying: that's not how this project is going to work. If that's too limiting for you, you are perfectly welcome to leave this one and start your own project, but I am not going to be debating the structure of this project any further.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

I agree we need organization and structure, but we don't need to have figure it all out.

Let it happen. Let people show you what peoples contributions are. Let organization grow on its own naturally, instead of trying to force puzzle pieces to fit together. You'll do wonders for your blood pressure.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

I've already figured out the "puzzle pieces," and it's working perfectly fine. Nothing is forced. I am not taking away any of the organization currently in place.

What's raising my blood pressure right now is that you're still arguing with me about it. Please, accept the way it is or go do your own thing instead, or I will have to give your position to someone else. This is not a constructive line of discussion.

I actually feel that I could contribute a lot more, but I'm sticking to what I signed up for. I agreed at sign up to stick to my own parts, otherwise I wouldn't have signed up at all. On that note then, are you still actually interested in writing, or just level design? You haven't shown much interest in the story since you want to focus on gameplay.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

I'm sorry you don't see it as one, and feel "things are working perfectly fine" when a member of your team tells you it is not.

Best of luck.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

No one else has a problem with the structure I have in place. I don't think it's me or my ideas that are the problem.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

I have no problem with Sears/Burst vote not being counted when he is not going to be contributing beyond feedback like he has been.

I have some problems with titles being the only thing involved in votes. But I can live with that. Ideally we'd discuss issues in which we have interest, and are planning to contribute in, even if it means Sheep does some art, or someone does something outside the title.

I do have a problem with any relationship where communication is stopped. It is no longer a relationship.I understand you want to see the SFG see the light of day. A teams members expressing their feelings on a matter of importance to them will not stop that.

I do have a problem with RadSpyro choosing to label me as a non contributor, when have again and again explained what I feel I need: (a discussion on desired level themes ) ( some in game enemy testing )
to be able to do quality work as a writer. And while I feel he is charging in head long without those things, I off no resistance, as it makes sense to him, and I don't want to limit his creativity, even if it goes beyond some limitations and requirements I feel I need for my own.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

As it stands now, I am removing your position.

I am doing this in my free time and intended it to be fun, but the arguments you are bringing up here are making it the opposite. I've made it clear that I understand how you feel, but I simply do not agree. You have to understand that I can't change everything I've planned just because one team member objects.

I wish you had brought up the specific issues you've outlined here to me in private instead of trying to fix it in a roundabout way by arguing with me about structure. We might have been able to work something out.

Thanks for your time.

Will you please stop putting words into my mouth. This is about the third time now. Nowhere have I labelled you as a non contributor, all I stated was that I felt you were more interested in gameplay than writing the story, which you openly admitted you are, since you have an opinion that differs from the rest of the team.

My position here is Writing (along with you) and Art (along with Sheep and Breaking Bad). Game enemy testing as well as level themes are outside the writing area, which you (and I) signed up for. I assumed that you would be discussing the plot and script with me, nothing else.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 16th

Right then, I think it's time for a new thread. Just a minute while I set one up.
