I am 100% behind this. As a former XBOX Indie game tester and a tester for PC as well. I can say with certainty that this game will benefit from taking advantage of 64bit. Something tho that everyone needs to be aware of is that this is an uphill battle. I have been through a game migrating 32<64bit. It requires pretty much a recode of the entire game.
Which for this game would do it wonders as with more properly motivated and skilled coders working on the dev team they can flush out errors and miss code. While simultaneously able to add conveniences/features that many would love to see added.
However just like rebuilding the lower end of your motor... This becomes a huge chore no one wants to do. But if they did they could justify about anything as a "while you are in there" sort of situation. It sucks that the original makers of this game didn't think about this well ahead of time. Especially since 64bit is king. Just got to keep pushing this one till they budge. My bet is that they were already looking at migration when they got their hands on the game. They could make so much more money on the game and do so much more with it if they were.
To whom it may concern,
My name is Julian Johan. I'm representing Indonesia, one of a country which has the biggest player since Spintires.
I'm considering myself one of the oldest Spintires player in Indonesia. And since then I'm taking Spintires & Mud Runner game into a whole new level. Together with my community called SPINTERUS, we spread the influence in Indonesia, where mass audience starts to recognize and play. Here in my country, it is often for Spintires or Mud Runner to be feature in a magazine, TV program, or even in an exhibition. Offroad Expo for example where we bring the game into the stall.
Why we love this game so much? Yes everybody knows. No need to tell further.
But why we keep on loving this game after so many years? The community.
The guy like SPUN, NIX, and all of their friends are some of the reason we are keep enjoying the game.
They're even give an influence to some of my bestfriend to participate as well in modding like Bregel Garage.
So, if all the guys who work for this awesome game really wants to make this game even better and long lasting.
Please do listen to the community. It is the number 1 power you have to keep Spintires Mud Runner live.
We need this game to be operate on 64 bit exe.
Thanks a lot before to keep our dream alive.
