So far, Todd has only created the wide-angle shot, but so far, it looks incredible!

You know what?  I don't CARE.  I can deal with the $100,000 being a different font, or the music being a bit off.  If the game is half as good as the screenshot looks, I will queue up to get it just like everyone else.  Feel free to make an error-free program, if you don't like it.

Um, read my post again. I said the differences make it BETTER than the show. I was not nit-picking about anything, and I don't appreciate being slammed for no reason.

 You might not have meant to, but when you phrase your comment the way you did: "it's not totally accurate, but", it comes off sounding like so much tactless whining.

At a minimum you are guilty of choosing your words poorly.

Ok, possibly my phrasing wasn't as good as it could've been. I've edited my post accordingly.

And now people are going to think I'm some kind of ogre that picks on people for no reason.  Not true.  I am indeed tired of the tactless whining wherein people bitch that the colors are wrong, the music change is in the wrong place, yet they still download the program.

Frankly, I do like the font better than the one used on the program.  That I agree with.

So true. Stuff as minor as "music fades here" kinda grinds on me. Agreeing here with Lemon, this is a very promising tidbit and with polish (just like FF) will be so above and beyond spectacular.

Where suggestions are allowed, IMHO, is where stuff is just plain wrong (SFX, format and the like).

 No, it's never allowed. What did you pay for the software? Zippo. The lesson that needs to be learned, I will reiterate for the 47th time, is that there is a great difference between "You screwed up Feature X", and "Hey, great program, but I just thought I'd point something out about Feature X that I think can be better...what do you think?"

One is constructive criticism. The other is simply tactless. Todd knows this, and he knows the difference, but that doesn't make it right.

I know that the font looks a little off from the Clark version.  But isn't that almost exact to the Davidson version?

*Excellent screenshot to say the least!  I can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks for all the compliments, everyone.  There's still some work to go: drawing chairs, lights, etc. but I thought you'd like to see at least what I had so far.

I don't want to make an issue out of the "whining" but I need to address it.  Because I try to pay such close attention to detail, it's easy to pick out something that's inconsistant, no matter how small it may be.  Believe me, I'm a game show fan as well and I really do want to know if there's something I can do to make my software better.

Just let me reitterate and sum up what Chris said.  There's tactfulness and tactlessness.  I know some of the tactless remarks aren't meant by the writer to be so critical but those of you who are coming across as "whiners" and don't mean to need to realize that in the business world, comments like that, intentional or not, can get you in a lot of trouble.
