yo if anyone still got Angelo's contact, Zeo you should talk to him about getting Troy closer to Croteam, Troy surely has more enthusiasm about this game than Angelo ever did, making such an addition to the game for FREE, so i think if Croteam sees Troy's portfolio and the project he made himself with only a small group of people i think HANDS DOWN croteam will hire him and give him every right to use all utilities of the engine to make this mode as viable as possible
yeah because Angelo was in it for his own gain, he got profit from it and also he got a great CV/Portfolio making him look good when applying for a job in such area, they will never check the progress of his actual project cuz no one gives a shit, they just gonna see reference from Croteam and thats all what would be required.
Troy however poured his heart and soul into this project, not making it for the money, (only having donation link in his signature) he is making this for the community trying to make this work best possible, any difficulties encountered, he works his ass off to eliminate them, yes his progress is slow but Zeo keeps us updated now and then on everything, and with each update we see more new things than what Angelo presented us with 10 patches of SSRev. I cant wait for the day when STM will be complete and i hope that this game will see the light once again
I've been told by some SeriousZone members (not to quote any name) that Angelo lost his entire Alligator Pit team just because he was an ass... from one day to another he stopped asking Boyz and Click to beta test the game and they never knew why.
SS revo had potential, we can't say Angelo wasn't putting his heart into the project, but alone he cannot do much any longer.. not to mention some people from SeriousZone (again) made fun of him pretending he was a bad coder (and i'd buy it since he's been unable to fix the damn netcode since day one).
Croteam wanting to make money from a free community project and Angelo being an ass resulted a bad mix that leaded the Serious Sam Revolution's project to failure.
If we want someone to help Troy to bring a little bit of hope into the game, we'll have to put the hand dirrectly on someone higher (from Croteam's devs). We'd better try to contact Louva-Deus, maybe he'll be able to help us.

................Always Look On The Bright Side of Life
1. German providers suck.
2. Prottoss, do you think that a company which wants around 25 thousands dollars (25.000 aka. 25k aka. twenty fucking five thousands dollars) for a 2001 engine source code will want to hire someone outside their team and send him the source code for free? They don't give a single fuck about classic titles. Just earn some euros on nostalgy lovers and then disappear immediately like nothing happened.

As for Bitcoin, it's pretty complex but in short, you have to get a wallet (a program that has an address where you can put your bitcoins or something like that), I think you can download it on bitcoin.com. Then go to some trading site like btc-e.com and register an account there, then you can buy some bitcoins and they will transfer them to your wallet. After that you should be able to send BTC from your wallet to the server host guys.
