Listen, if you're rejoicing at the demise of Dark Heresy 2 and the birth of Only War, the Dark Heresy edition, fine whatever. Congratulations. You don't need to come here to gloat.

 

What I'm wondering is if the staff at Fantasy Flight would be willing to knock up a final version of Dark Heresy 2 based on the beta updates that have come out so far and make it available for download. I'm not sure if that would be a pain in the ass or not, but I would be forever grateful if I could have a single PDF product for Dark Heresy 2 that would save me from having to flip through the updates every time I look at the rules. 

 

If you, like me, loved Dark Heresy 2, please post a request here for a tweeked version of the Beta PDF. I'm not sure if FFG would be willing to do that or not, but I figure its worth asking.

No.

I'd appreciate a copy of the current beta rules with the Beta Updates included in it. It's not something you can easily do at all, and for those of us who liked the new rules, it'd be great.

 

Nice to see the haters flaming though, nicely done guys *slow clap*

Obviously, now that they've chosen to take the whole thing back to formula, giving any support to the discarded version makes no sense on FFG's part.

Cry me a river.  The company did what all companies do.  They made a product and presented it as a beta.  A lot of people hated it and company decided to go with older, but proven products that is well loved.  It is like your bitching about the death of New Coca Cola and the Coca Cola company switch back to Classic Coca Cola.

Funny how the vitriol refuses to die down on both sides.

Sorry, but in all honesty despite how much I hated the wound system in the beta I still dislike how things just switch to Only War.  It is just company got to do what a company got to do.  Fantasy Flight wanted to do this system, but found out it was not going to be a wise investment so they switch back to OW which is proven to work. 

 

My response was aimed at the original poster of this thread because he refuses to get it.  Instead of just accepting it and moving forward like any reasonable person would had done for a game this guy decided to be a whiny spoiled brat.  While acting like a whiny spoiled brat he demanded that can never happen.  He has the beta and the updates.  He got every thing he need.  Sorry it didn't pan out the way that a lot of people wanted it which includes myself, but he has no reason to post this thread at all.  He is just being a baby.

Yeah, what a total git for politely asking if someone at FFG might have the time and inclination to compile the v2.3 material into a single pdf. Something we customers can't, or at least aren't supposed to be able to do ourselves.


Never have I heard anything so whiney, entitled and just plain obnoxiously rude. Off with his head, I say!

... Maybe you should just take a deep breath, Mr. Snowman, and chill.

Well, OP's sentiment was... deluded, for a lack of better word. I don't think he understood the full ramifications of his request.

 

Still, no reason to make assumptions and judgments the way Snowman did. That was plain uncalled for.

Surprisingly, the only person whining about anything, and acting like a child, are those complaining about the OP. If you disagree, just ignore the thread.

I think the wish of the OP is understandable, and also something I share.

But accourding to economical reasons, this is not going to happen. :(

With the beta effectively stalled until the end of November, people are becoming bored and restless.

 

I agree with the sentiment of the OP, though I found it passive-agressive whiny. The content is all there for someone with a bit of time to compile into their very own version. I've already partly done so, although I won't be sharing.

It'd be great if there was some way to prove we're actual customers, because we're doing the same thing at the moment. Or rather, I think one of my playmates will have "first pass" conversion of DH2.3b in document form ready this weekend, and at some point after that (when the rest of our group's whining grows more intolerable that the extreme dullness of the task, probably, lol) I'll edit out the worst deluges of flavour and convert the thing to html.

So.. I'm guessing it would probably speed things up considerably to collaborate, but... RPGs are so damn niche I would hate myself if such a thing suddenly showed up as a download somewhere.

Paradox Games (video game publisher) has a system where people has to input a serial number to gain access to the forums. FFG doing something similar might be a boon to both them and us.

A player maintained "living html" would be fantastic, and no doubt save at least both our groups a huge amount of really not the least bit interesting work.

This is where an online ruleset would come into its own, but we've done that argument.

True. But it's such a good idea it just begged to be said twice :P

... Plus, I'm like pre-emptively traumatised by the staggering amount of dull in my far too immediate future. We already went through this with DH-RT-BC-OW. Honestly I don't even understand why I agreed to go through it again with the 2.3 beta already. I mean, who knows? DH2e proper might turn out to be better.

from what I see the DH2 beta is fairly well done and wont take too much work to fix if you want to use that. If like most people I have seen here you want the rule set to be more in line with what is currently out there (Only war, Black crusade, Etc.) then use the new rules they come out with.

 

I don't see the issue here.


Check out my podcast Buckets Of Dice where myself and a friend review how to start various different kinds of tabletop, roleplaying, and CCG games. http://bucketsofdice.podomatic.com/ Each episode focuses on a new game, we discuss a little about the game's backround, rules, how to start/ what to buy, and a little about the company.
