Honestly speaking, I've seen much more threads trying to help people rather than just be pure complaining.

Also, I cannot see in anyway how Cranky's post was implying he thought you were five years old.

We are complaining because we think it's a problem, it's our opinion, disagree if you want. Conversely to your point, as long as the jump scares are present, we will complain about them or give constructive criticism. That's all there is to it.

RE: No more Jump scare maps....it is getting unoriginal.

I want to apologize if I upset anyone, I really didn't mean too. So for that I really do apologize, I don't like arguing so I like to avoid it. Although I haven't been here long, I really haven't seen very many posts that weren't people complaining, so it finally just got to me. But, as Kreekakon showed me, there are some threads that are about helping new modders. I'm sorry I jumped to conclusions, and again, I'm sorry if I upset anyone.

That because we have high standards, because we are adult people. We don't want to waste our time downloading and playing maps made by kids who can't map. I'm going to start reviewing the maps I play, so that other people don't have to bother downloading stories that are horrible.

Although I have suspicions about the pony avatar, I didn't mean you. It was a general explanation. I really do try to channel my frustration into something helpful, but my basic emotional instincts when it comes to kids and immature people in general, involves shouting the F word at them for making me facepalm. It was just an explanation as to why people besides me complain. It's hard to get along sometimes due to emotional stuff.

You can probably guess what I'll say about this implication (Unless of course it's just a joke), but I don't really want to go there again after what went on in the last thread.

RE: No more Jump scare maps....it is getting unoriginal.

I also hate jumpscares, IF there's too many of 'em and if they're not even scary. Like "teleporting naked guys". I hate those, not in a good way..I HATE them. The type of scares that scares me the most are those small details. Like if I for example look at a painting for 20sec, and when I'm about to turn around I see the painting come to life. Or, if I'd look into a mirror and then see someone behind me in the mirror. Those things scares me to death, but those pathetic "jumpscares" sometimes are just too much, and makes me laugh instead.

They might be amusing to watch sometimes, but when you're actually playing a custom map and all the maker can do is throw naked guys at you? Yeah... that's pathetic. Real pathetic.

PewDiePie doesn't play Amnesia, so any HPL2 maps that PewDiePie would enjoy, are not Amnesia maps. PewDiePie is single-handedly ruining the reputation of Amnesia with his stupidity.

Pewdie actually did play Amnesia, I tbh found that to be the best of his playthroughs. Tongue
