    I'm 'trying' (being the key word) to play this, but it's kind of dull single player, thus i'm looking for any active players?

    How to circumvent the Server Full lockout by tweaking a config file:
    How to force join a server your friend is on, but you cant join. : SimCity


    It's modifying a config file (instead of config.cfg they call it something stupid thinking we won't snoop around with a text editor ) and the file's contents change every time you close the game. Doubt it's able to be picked up on, let alone banned. This isn't a hack or modding, all games have allowed modification of config.cfg

    Does this not give you the ability to control your 'friends' city and assets? Kind of worrying if you ask me. Test it and let me know

    Did anyone else receive an email about getting a free game for the cockup they made?

    Not as far as I am aware. It's just a setting to say "I played on this server last" without selecting it from the list. You aren't logging in as your friend, you still log in as yourself.

    And yes, the free game promotion opened last night. I picked up Dead Space 3.

    I did, and funnily enough, just like @CAM i picked up DS3 . Still got BF3 update (6gb) and now DS3 to download on a ADSL connection 700kb/s isn't nice

    @CAM

    I'll give it a shot, still uneasy about it though. Blame you if anything goes wrong!

    I would say "nothing will go wrong"... But, this is EA. The same EA who threaten to ban people who ask for refunds.

    The ban is normal practice though. Some online companies will ban your account if you apply a chargeback to recover funds as you and your card are no longer trustworthy.

    Of course, they screwed up anyway and logged all refund requests from Amazon as chargebacks and banned them by accident even if it was just a query. >.<

    A few of us here are talking about picking up SimCity 2013, as Dan, our web developer, has been going on at great lengths about it.

    I think it'll be after Easter for me, however!

    To be fair, the OFT says digital items are "services" not goods, because they aren't physical. Which means you aren't covered by distance selling regs.

    Which is silly... Digital things are made of electrons, electrons have a mass therefore it's a physical thing.

    On an entirely unrelated note, then, to cheer proceedings up:

    It may be the same weight as a strawberry... But I doubt it tastes like one. Especially considering a lot of the websites that exist in the darkest parts.
