Well it's kinda old news, but I've read this just right now.
Where's Jason? 2009-12-21 13:23:50 | Stormtrooper
I'm seeing more and more questions from people asking where Stormtrooper is (that's me; Jason!). I'm alive and well. I've just been busier in my personal life and took a step back from the development of the Psychostats software. It's much harder these days to devote a lot of development time to a piece of software that I make no money off of (and remember; I pay a monthly fee for this server too). As much as I like developing “free” software for the gaming community, getting nothing back but frustration and complaints from people can get on your nerves after awhile.
Right now it's unclear if I'll pick-up the development of Psychostats any further. I don't want it to die, but the economy is tough right now and I have to do what's best for me. I made a lot of progress on PS4, But a lot more still needed to be done before it was ready to be released to the public as a viable software package. For now, I'm not saying Psychostats is dead, but definitely on hiatus and stale.
I may be pursuing new development projects too. I just have to see what opportunities come my way.
Sad but true…
This is the problem with all of us, who code and contribute to the community for free. We all do this for you and our loan is the respect and feedback from YOU.
But there is a point on which we can't get further without the help of the community. The forums are shut down and it looks like Stormtrooper was the only one who cared about it. This would not happen if the community is active and respecting the work from the Psychostats team.
It is very sad to see that psychostats is currently on hold.
I wich Jason the best and hope this project will go on. ( HLStats and Psychostats are the only game stats-software which where started as the Valve multiplayer got big )
Ahhh there it is:
In other news, a couple of users have forked development of Psychostats on Github.com to provide new features and more importantly some bug fixes to the current 3.2 version of Psychostats. Please feel free to get new copies from these repositories for your use.
Also I want to introduce Battle Empire:
BATTLE EMPIRE (BE) is the first online gaming system in the world to provide perpetual match play for cash. BE provides a seamless, transparent integration with existing games; a simple feature of “click and play”, that will not force participants to navigate through complex and aggravating login procedures. BE gamers will no longer need to rearrange their lives around irregularly scheduled tournaments to compete for little cash and prizes. BE gives gamers the luxury to play as they wish, with their wins now equating to actual cash prizes.
BE was founded to provide a monetization outlet for millions of experienced and casual gamers to interface in an online environment, both competitively and socially. BE is unlike most gaming leagues that use a prepaid based model where you buy credits to win tokens that are only usable within their venues, and have yet to accommodate all contenders who wish to play. BE specializes in facilitating online gamers to use their skills in a recreational and profitable manner.
Good luck Jason !
