and the above.
"pirates" = Cheap 7 year olds, who don't take their community seriously.
Use the money to get someone to make your own custom one
Good communities = people who coded their script from scratch instead of buying it like a fucking moron.
You don't need to run Open Aura. If you take your community seriously, just run something else or pay the money for a legit version. I'm just saying that people who use crappy unlegit versions are not taking their communities seriously.
If you want to run something else than Open Aura that doesn't cost any money, sure. Why not? But how will your community be any unique and qualitative if you're just one crappy unlegit Open Aura server out of several others?
Stop sucking his dick for the love o god, and wake up. Realize you are being scammed.
A better analogy is paying for beans when you could get them for free without them being encased in saran wrap
It's quite obvious this is turning into an argument...
Overall, people do not believe that Kuro's gamemodes are worth the price. Some commonly recommended gamemodes you could try instead are:
According to the people who have responded to this thread, the majority believe you should not get HL2RP and that it is not worth the money.
Can we be done here?
All of them are less qualitative gamemodes when it comes to true profound roleplay. I promise you, you can't get the same roleplay experience with those gamemodes.
Maybe that's why Kuro got 34 customers? Like it or not, but he has worked a lot with his gamemode and it has payed off for him, and most of his customers are satisfied.
I have at least 12,000 users of one of my scripts. 34 is nothing.
Why can't people let things rest?
Refer to the thread about why people don't like Gmod Roleplay if you're going to analyze "true" roleplay.
We get it already:
-The majority think Kuro's scripts are overpriced.
-The scripts mentioned earlier are recommended over paying.
-Kuro is still making money.
-We shouldn't give a damn over who is using what script as long as people are having fun.
As far as the no-refund policy, they should play the game-mode before making the mistake of buying something they didn't like.
Can we please stop posting now?
How anyone can be that dumb?
OpenAura is the next DarkRP, it consists mostly from deathmatch, lack of actual roleplay, story and character development. Take a look at Phase Four servers, they are horrible.
DarkRP is the exact opposite. DarkRP doesn't even got characters. DarkRP doesn't even got a local OOC command and did not have any /me command until the latest versions. It still don't got any /it command. The whole concept of jobs like gangster, mobboss, and hobo is just absurd. The mentioned "jobs" aren't jobs. Really, the whole "job" concept in general is very strange. Instead of looking at players like members of different groups (jobs) a true roleplay gamemode should look at players as individual characters which can have several jobs at the same time and develop criminality even though they aren't a member of any group or job.
Open Aura has maybe become a bit like the new DarkRP on many servers. But the reason for that is mainly because of the leaked versions of it, that makes it possible for any kid to start an Open Aura server and ruin Open Aura's reputation.
OpenAura never had a reputation to ruin anyway.
Well, if you want to see Open Aura at its best moments, you should try out some more professional servers.
This one pretty good for example: 22.214.171.124:27015
The script doesn't dicate quality of RP. It's possible to have amazing roleplay on DarkRP, if you got enough like-minded individuals to do so. Not that I'd reccomend it, but I'm just saying, people bitch about which gamemode is the best way too much. An intelligent community head will look for basic script stability and performance over stupid post processing and fancy vgui.
Relying on a script makes you a bad roleplayer, end of story.
You got scammed son.
Out of several hundreds of DarkRP server we can find 2 professional servers. Out of 8 Open Aura servers, we can find 2 professional servers.. Wait.. Maybe script actually got some kind of impact?
"Relying on a script makes you a bad roleplayer, end of story." I totally agree. I don't see what you're trying to suggest here. As I've said several times, the script surely got an impact, but a professional server administration and management are even more important parts of a successful server.
I give up. Nobody seems to realize that the OP is gone.
