    just to help omen start his ea bashing for the week :)

    im currently at a conference on games ai in the uk and before lunch there was a guy talking about how they were working with ea’s fifa games to test ai etc.

    Bbut ea would only let them have fifa 99 (with source and loads of nda sheets) and they didnt appreciate him telling them that the ai sucked when he looked at source code and what were they thinking half the time.

    also they told him, yes, yes we knew about these flaws but we fixed them in subsequent versions. something which he doubts in that they will not give him more up to date games. Also one of his student apparently went on to work there and he was pretty much told, dont tell your ex-supervisor anything. haha.

    :cool:

    In fairness, I reckon the Fifa code is a lot better than it was. When Pro Evo started muscling in I think there was a lot of hard talking down there and its supposedly heading back on track tese days. However I can’t comment as I don’t play soccer games…

    I was down there recently and amazingly I didn’t have to sign a single NDA! :)

    omen is it not against your principles to set foot on EA soil. :)

    have you done a 180 and thinking of going to the dark side young jedi.

    (although that place is meant to be pretty cool alright, from what ive heard.)

    If you take EA out of the vowels, you are left with I O U.

    Hmmm, weird. Maybe something to do with signing souls over, on the employee contract?

    I should really get out more…
