Getting the client to pay...yah those a-holes that have the nervs to ask if you work for the same amount as an intern or student AKA nothing/free?


Hah! Back in the day, one of those clients asked if I can do extra work off-hours. Then they found out how much I charge for asking me to work during my free time.

It cost them a pretty penny, let me just put it at that. Posted Image

I lost contracts because I was "to expansive" compared to students and one went so far to say "I prefer it cheap and bad before I pay extra for good work."

In the AMA Russ said once the games downloaded through EPIC you could just launch it via executable.
By the time you can verify it as true it will be too late to refund.

Called it.

I've purchased through the Epic Store which will not allow the game to be launched through the MechWarrior.exe or MechWarrior-Win64-Shipping.exe file - 'Could not verify production ownership. Please ensure you launch the game through Epic Games Launcher and have a working internet connection.'

A late update. I created my EPIC account on 12/10/2019. it is now 3/20/2020. I cant log in due to EPIC launcher issue. I write EPIC 3 times a day every day for 102 days. EPIC techs are useless. I purchased MechWarrior 5 from PGI. I am pretty sure I have lost my $50.

What issue exactly? I've had zero, but I know of some others that could be resolved.

Or just pick up a FREE copy of GTA V. Just got to sign -up for Epic in the process.

I wont say i hate it but Epic,s free game giveaways is a pretty sleazy tactic to try and kill Steam.

My dislike of EPIC stems from the fact that I can not install their idiotic Launcher. Just will not load under any circumstance.
I went through their "Support system" to find out why. No luck.
I would truly like to but MechWarrior 5, but this is not to be.
So...Screw Epic!

It's certainly an undercut. But it's not like Steam haven't amassed the wealth to do the same. They just choose not to.

Weird. I hate Steam but don't hate Epic. Granted, I've never tried to get multiplayer working through Epic's store, so that could be part of it.
