  • Update on my status

    Hello everyone, it's me, MaxRock.

    I just recently got electricty back, and a stable net access 2 days ago.
    First of all, I would like to thank everyone for all kind words and mental support I received in the past days. It means a lot to me You guys are the best!.
    I would now want to take some time to correct and add few things to what other team members wrote in previous updates, as there have been some missinformations.

    For those who don't know, on the night between 11th and 12th august, the region that I live in got hit by a "storm of century".
    Such a thing never ever happened here before, plus the officials, despite getting a warning note about the storm, have not informed anyone...
    The heavy rains and strong wind (150kph/~93mph) known as "MCS" devastated lot of forests and towns, cutting most of them, mine included, from outide world for many days (For example, in my area around 1k of electricty poles got damaged).
    It's estimated that the storms brought down over 8 million cubic metres of lumber across 45k hectares of forest, which will take 2 years to clean up, and decades to recover the biosphere for which my state is famous for.

    As for my property damage, I was a bit more lucky than neighbours, and rest of the town, who got trees all over their houses. My flat got mostly damaged by the strong wind, and the rainwater getting into 4 rooms at once, as there was nothing "guarding" the building from the wind's way.
    The damage would be probably smaller if not the fact (which rather not everyone here knows) that I'm physically disabled and that there was no electricity already when it was happening, meaning I had only my smartphone's torchlight and 3 candles to help me. The wind pushed against the windows bending them with such a force, the rainwater got in as there were no windows at all...
    Luckily the windows didn't fell into the rooms, but due to the windforce the lintels got damaged. The water that got in damaged the walls and floors a bit (the flat still smells like a wet concrete, and mold appeared around the windows and in corners).
    From other things, due to the water damage, I lost all the spare PC parts in the basement (including spare monitor), fax machine, shelf the TV stands on, some of books and carpets in living room, hifi pioneer tower, guitar pedal and few other minor things. The wind also damaged my garden and things I had on my balcony (for example a pressure cooker and flower pots which flew away and their whereabouts are unknown). My main PC got water damage too, or to be more specific, its PSU did. I got it to work again, althrough it seems the usb ports now like to disconnect plugged in devices at random. Due to the power failure going for days, I also lost all of food I had in fridge, which was a bit of a problem to me. I struggle daily with an intestinal tract that can't properly absorb nutrients and food allergies, and all stores cept one were closed, so I had no choice but to eat food which was poisoning me. All this, despite not sounding that bad, left a mark and it will take some time for me to recover.

    Now, I would like to to apologize for the chaotic updates on the matter done by the rest of team members. I know they tried their best with the little info that came to them, but in my opinion they made it sound confusing (for example,mentioning that my PC getting damaged was the worst damage, while obviously it's not it).
    I also quite don't understand why they set the poll #226. I, of course, don't blame them for that, knowing that they had good intentions, but it made me feel uncomfortable.
    I was always taught that a person is worth as much as the hard work they put to achieve goals, thus, despite being disabled, I never really liked to ask anyone for help, trying to solve all problems by myself, hahaha. So, please don't feel like you guys owe me something and have to help. Like I mentioned at the beginning, your mental support and kind words are the most important to me.

    Saying that, I put Chrono X on a "semi hiatus" for a bit, where the amount of work I spend working on it will be limitted to the bare minimum, until I get things on my end sorted out.
    Of course it means you guys sadly will have to wait longer for the Chrono X's 5th demo to get a public release, which, from bottom of my heart, I'm really sorry for...

    At the end, for those who are interested, I leave links to news sites mentioning this event:

    That's all for today, MaxRock's out~

    If unsolicited "advice for next time" is appreciated, though? Potatoes store pretty well either dried or uncooked, coconut oil is cheaper than butter (at least where I am) and doesn't go rancid at room temperature, cardboard-plus-oil-and-a-short-metal-can camp stoves are cheap and fit in a Ziplock, and Mormons are both well-organized and happy to help with disaster relief and cleanup. (Or direct you to places that need help, if you want something to do.)

    Wow, ouch. I've got (mild, but pervasive) allergies of my own, and having to eat food I'm allergic to or go hungry for a while is not a fun feeling.

    I'm glad your safe from the storm, that's the most important part. However, that damage seems really brutal...Hopefully you can make a swift and full recovery both physically, mentally and technologically!

    Glad you're alright for the most part. Take all the time you need to get better.

    Just glad you're okay. I'm sure others will agree when I say that your health is more important than a game, so don't worry about the delays. Take care of the more important things first

    It's cool Max. I'm glad you're all right, and thanks for going into detail as to what exactly happened over there.

    Thank you for your honesty and transparency, and I hope things get better for you soon.
