Stargate Worlds and Corruption in CME.

My friends’ pyronious & Sm1key are huge SG fans so this news is going to hurt them hard. Stargate Worlds and CME/Firesky has had some serious money issues and was forced to file for a chapter 11.

Seems the CEO of CME was embezzling then laundering the funds/donations/investments meant for the development of Stargate Worlds and CME for awhile now. Official CME/Firesky statement here at this article

This news revealed when tps game entitled Stargate: Resistance was announced and released as a show of strategy to convince the current investors that CME/Firesky could and can make profitable games to secure investments to further the Stargate Worlds MMO project.

This is also just rumorware at the moment, with everything that’s going on at CME/Firesky seem to working on the dedicated server patch that be or maybe not be released but if they do? This will mean people who bought the game will be able to keep the fandom alive!

      Yea I know huh? What do you Sm1key is gonna say when he sees this? Let alone Henry, I think they might go ballistic too. @_@ Speaking of which how is the project coming along? I mean The SGU project from what I have seen is coming a long really well. I see you trimmed things and staff down to the 3 of you. But you 3 have really tackled and really have started nailing this down for the SG fans out there too.

    yea, well i just had a test play with a great mapper, Mirage, and he liked it:) I think next summer there will be even a public beta! lets hope for that, im not promising anything, since life is unpredictable 😉

    You mean the 3rd Q of this yr? This Summer? DUDE! Thats gonna be so COOL! I have to say again, its pretty cool with what a person can do even with the older engines. The time I have played with the various stages of SGU have been super fun. I really can’t wait to see how the rest of the Unreal Community will react when the public multiplayer beta goes gold.

    Oh, it has changed much since then! the money / leveling system works , saved on your IP adress(will eventually be saved by Username and PW). Also , the shop works! with a 3d preview of the selected gun.

      also , we have a few guns ready, and the player model too! as soon as the goauld staff is done, the jaffa will follow. the staff will not be availeble for purchase but can only be aquired by killing an enemy carrying it.
