both need scanline effect and they'll look great.  Which is what I do.

"Danny kinda forgot the Iron fleet"..... Really? But really?.....
rcsc716 May 2019
Warning: Spoilers
Every time I heard this sentence from one of the two donkeys, I just feel to downgrade the rating of this episode. Poor Daenerys! The two donkeys just transformed Danny in a silly and ingenuous girl, with no competent military advisers, behaving in a very dummy way (same as D&D) in her journey to Dragonstone riding Drogon.

I'm not going to talk about the other silly things in this episode, but "Danny forgot the Iron Fleet"... Danny forgot to scout the skies with her dragons... Danny lost the flying Rhaegal hit by three consecutive high precision GPS guided scorpion arrows... BRAVO!! Terrific writing skills!... George RR Martin couldn't have done better... I'm so disappointed and Mad with the weak, lazy, brainless writing of these two donkeys... I just used to love GoT. I watched all the seasons, I was completely addicted to it, read the books, had my expectations on the top, was counting the days, the minutes for the start of Season 8. And then this... "Danny kinda forgot the Iron fleet"... unfortunately, this sentence, like what happened in the previous episode, tells everything about what is going to be Season 8 of GoT, courtesy of Donkey and Donkey.

Is there anyway we can help with that?  You do so much, it seems like one of the few places the community can help share the load with you.

Sadly, no.  I have to test a ton of code and other stuff that people won't know where to begin.  The end user will indeed be the final tester anyway - and there WILL be issues.


Also, I've said New Threat merge is possible but only when both mods are complete or very near it.

I am not sure there was any falling out.  The bottom line is they ran out of the author's books and were found out as crap writers.  And then they got sick of the show and wanted to move on.  It takes a lot of effort to write a good story.  They didn't want to put in that level of effort and it shows.

Maybe if they'd stuck to Martin's novels it would have been easier, but the hardest part of a complicated story is ending it properly and making sure it all comes together in an organic way.  D&D aren't very good writers.  They couldn't do it, didn't want to do it, and clearly had too much ego to get more people involved to help.

They also took The Long Night as literal rather than poetic.  The Long Night is supposed to be over a long period of time... not one poxy battle, where a small girl armed with a dagger takes down the whole lot.  In fact, even the actress herself has made comment about how silly that is.

It all comes down to the fact that d&d wanted it all to end. As soon as possible.

I appreciated Firefly a lot for its adherence to physics and common sense.

Don't bother whinging at the 1 star ratings - use your brain
20 May 2019
Warning: Spoilers
(If you want to watch a great show that ended properly, seek out Babylon 5 and Breaking Bad).

Anyone else tired of seeing

"I don't get it!? Why are so many people rating this 1 star??" "Ignore the haters!" "Ignore the trolls!"

?

Well, rather than calling people names or "not getting it", perhaps it's time to get an IQ and see what is absolutely obvious:

Half of season 6 - and all of season 7 and 8 - have been shockingly bad. The writing has fallen off a cliff because they didn't have GRRM's novels to extend this to another 5 seasons of glorious writing that made sense.

We got, instead, a mad queen out of thin air - and a stupid, contrived ending to go with it. I mean, honestly, BRAN as the king! I don't know whether to laugh or weep. None of this makes any sense and even more annoying is the fact Sansa ended up ruling the North.

Jon Snow's arc thrown away. Why bother bringing him back to life if the prophecy and all the lead up was going to abandoned? Dany's arc destroyed in the most monstrous way imaginable. Bran didn't even get a proper arc - he just looked cryptic all the time for no reason. Jaime's arc thrown away. Arya's arc went nowhere and Bravos was a load of tosh. We still don't even know what Varys heard in the flames. Who cares, right? Sansa's entire story line after season 4 was horse manure and this episode just puts the final steam on the turd.

Also, I can't stand Sophie Turner - she's playing herself - Rich and in love with herself. She's no longer portraying her character.

And just when you felt it couldn't get any sillier, Sam does a Lord of the Rings by creating the book A Song of Ice and Fire.

GRRM deserved better than the garbage D&D have churned out. They are utterly clueless.

Get lost!!

It's OK, it's over now! I loved it. Have fun waiting for your books :D

I suggest you check out the final episode's rating on imdb and elsewhere. Might make you understand that you're actually in the minority. As I'm intelligent, I certainly will enjoy the books.  So will every other proper fan of A Song of Ice and Fire ;)

You loved it because you have no sense or critical thinking. Don't kid yourself there's any alternate reason.  :-D

Wow.  That was a painful ending. So so bad.  Worthless writers.

The Waif - aka the T-1000 - and how D&D are crap writers
16 May 2019
Warning: Spoilers
When I first saw this episode, I was dumbfounded by its utter stupidity. And, then, it hit me: 'We have Dumb and Dumber at the helm - not GRRM. It's going to get worse.'

And it did. Look at what became of Game of Thrones. This episode is a massive clue as to the utter stink of those two inept writers. They haven't a clue what real life is about or what believable fiction is about. They do EVERYTHING for shock value without one ounce of understanding to the logic of it.

They actually think it's fine to show a character in medieval times stabbed multiple times in the stomach, who then goes for a non stop sprint after it without a care in the world. Arya would be DEAD. It's that simple.

People who accepted this episode at the time should reflect long and hard on the fact they were partly responsible for the utter DRECK we got in Season 7 and 8.

D&D are a menace. They should never, ever be allowed to write another TV show or film.

Also, who's bright idea was it to make the Waif (who remained totally unexplained and without character development) into the T-1000????



I went back and reviewed where the suck truly started.

A little walk down memory lane where Ric is concerned.  A few more posts besides that one.

I doubt anything will come of it, sadly.  But one day GRRM will actually release WoW.

This isn't the first time that Ric has sent a post like that to me personally.  I think he gets too annoyed that I state bluntly that I think too many people are thick.  But they are.

It isn't an opinion that season 7 and 8 of GoT are badly and lazily written.  They are.  The evidence for it is overwhelming and that's why hundreds of thousands of people signed a petition to have season 8 reshot.

Ric, unfortunately, also used the classic "What have you done"  as if that is a relevant argument against bad writing.

"Nobody cares"
"What have you written"
"Could you do any better"
"It's just a TV show"
"It's just fiction"

Are the worst and most common responses made by people when writing is criticized.  Do I really need to point out why those responses are crap?

Locking threads because one fool turns up and abuses me isn't really cool.  It just plays into the hands of the troll, so I request it be reopened.

Second, Ric instigated it and was 100% worse, yet is not moderated.  That needs addressing.

1. A LOT of testing
2. A few script updates
3. Finalization of installer and process
4. Help file including tutorial video for modders
5. A couple of exe fixes
6. Liaise with Myst6re about getting Makou update finished to support new opcodes.
7.  Complete all due updates for localization.

It's not far off :)

Yeah, you've sure convinced me that you don't care.  ;D ;D ;D

Also, a big thumbs up for illustrating my point perfectly about the low IQ.  Take your shite brain to a thread that's more your intellect.

My review for imdb:

It's the best episode this season, but that's only 7/10 by Game of Thrones S1-4 standards.

D&D = Dumb and Dumber (the writers).

Let's look at the good -

1. The Tyrion-Jaime scene was top notch and exactly the way it needed to be. Sadly, Dumb and Dumber wrecked all the other heartfelt moments this and last season. I guess we gotta be thankful they've now managed to write ONE great scene.

2. The battle for King's Landing was superb and visually what we all expected. The 'no mercy' strategy was gripping throughout.

3. There were less "what the heck" moments this episode.

Now, the bad:

1. Once again, certain characters survive certain death for no other reason than D&D are stupid. Jaime, Euron, Arya, Greyworm, etc all have plot armour yet again when it suits. What is it that Dumb and Dumber don't understand about human anatomy? Arya was stabbed in the stomach multiple times in season 6 in one of the lowest and most stupid moments in GoT, and now we have the same for Euron and Jaime. Jaime actually then travels on forever afterwards as if it were just a minor flesh wound he'd received. It's so, so disappointing to see such poor writing in this show. D&D are HACKS. Arya has buildings caving in on top of her as she runs around King's Landing with dragon fire raining down and unsullied slaughtering everyone in sight. She'd be dead multiple times.

2. The Mountain is undead. When did this happen??? We've not been told he's immortal until now. It was laughable. The whole thing looked like a cheap zombie B movie.

3. Dany's descent into madness wasn't a descent (like it will be in the books, should it occur); instead, it's been the most unrealistic character change in TV history. In just a few episodes, she's gone from wanting to take King's landing with minimal losses to actively hunting down innocent people and frying them alive - when she's clearly won the war already. Even when she was contemplating burning King's Landing to a crisp in previous episodes, she was never capable of hunting down women and children in the streets like a bad Hollywood villain. They've ruined her character by rushing and forcing the story - Magic wand, lazy writing.

4. Varys' death was silly. He deserved better than to be found out for some futile last minute plot. Burning him alive with Drogon... was that even necessary? Hasn't Dany heard of a sword?

5. Dumb and Dumber seem to think Cersei is a tragic character who deserves our sympathy. No. She's a horrible monster who has caused untold suffering and death - all for her own petty wants and schemes. It's insulting they gave her such an easy death, and one that actually tries to be nice to her! It was also totally unsatisfying to see her killed by a bunch of rocks in a cliche 'hold me close as we die together' scene.

Look, Dumb and Dumber: we all know that you love the actress who plays Cersei, but she's an ACTRESS. You're writing a CHARACTER for a fictional show, you blithering idiots.

6. Dany threatening Tyrion with death is also out of character, as is Jaime still giving a damn about Cersei.

7. Tyrion arranging for Cersei to escape is LAUGHABLE. There is no way on earth he'd do that. He'd arrange for Jaime to escape (maybe - and even then how would Jaime get away unseen??) - NOT his crazy, demented sister. It's almost as if Dumb and Dumber have forgotten everything Cersei has done to Tyrion and to everyone else.

8. Euron's death is so bad it's hilarious. "I'm the one who killed Jaime Lannister..." LOL WHO THE HELL CARES? And why did he want to in the first place? The scene is also extremely badly acted and will likely be ridiculed in 1000 memes. Oh, and did I mention that he survived a direct hit from Drogon's fire and then swam ashore to meet Jaime by complete coincidence on the beach?

In conclusion: This episode has a few moments where you can remember how good Game of Thrones used to be - and lots of moments where you are reminded that those two fools - Dumb and Dumber - are now completely in charge.

Unfortunately, this episode also can't erase the destruction those two idiots have wrought on this show. Watching Drogon roast and toast reminded me of what they've have done to GRRM's epic fantasy. The best this season isn't saying a lot.

I have a feeling a lot of people didn't get Game of Thrones at all... beacause all along they had what's left of their brain turned off.  So it's no loss to them.  A character doing cool things with a proper build up and a character doing cool things with no build up is the same to these sorry halfwits.

A bit like FF7 actually.  When I criticized the spin offs and got a load of nonsense back.  Turned out the reasons I like it most (themes, storytelling, and so on) are not in line with a lot of fans (battles, graphics, "coolness" urgh). So, to them, the spin offs are just as good. 

25
I feel sorry for you guys who can't enjoy it. Must suck!

Not as much as realizing that the majority can because of their chronic lack of an IQ.  That depresses me far more.
