Where was I being a pain to the new posters?
(BTW a VIP member just means I've posted here, though I'm always willing to help)
If you read what I typed and take your personal feeling aside of it you'll understand what I was posting. It's frustrated me as well, not like I just quit playing FM3 and don't have any pictures to upload for the releases I've had.
Using your resources for something old when you have something new doesn't make one bit of sense. Does your friend that only plays old releases and not newer games have another game that still supports it's old release? I can't think of one off hand, I know EA and Activision don't support theirs a year later, much less two.
This has been an ongoing problem for quite some time. It's been patched up and repaired multiple times. There probably isn't a permanent fix for it or the issue would have been resolved a long time ago. If it is fixed it will probably stop working soon thereafter. Could we please stop beating the dead horse into the ground?
