It's been revaled by gremlin on the BA boards that numerous lines of untoward information were included in one of the data files in this game, mostly consisting of porn URLs. I doubted it, and my initial examination with a hex editor turned up nothing. However, another poster gave me the info needed to find the code with ultra edit, and it's there. I'm looking at it right now.
I am totally dissapointed by this. i don't know what to say.
This is no joke folks.
With the problems this game has, how sloppy and uncaring can you be?
Not only does some vandal have to put the code in, it has to be missed again and again in the QC process.

Plummerx,

Could you post a direct link to the thread please?

------------------
Chocks away, back soon old chap and hey, stay away from Mrs Bilko or I'll give you a damn good thrashing with my STICK

Enlève les cales! Je reviens tout de suite mon vieux; et surtout, tu restes bien loin de Mme Bilko ou je te filerai une bonne grosse rouste avec mon BÂTON.

Zwolnic bloki, wracam niedlugo stary pryku i hej, zostaw Pania Bilko w spokoju albo dam ci dobry wycisk moim KIJKIEM.

От винта, старина, я вернусь скоро, а ты держись подальше от миссис Билко, а не то я проучу тебя моей ПАЛКОЙ!

¡Calzos fuera! Regreso enseguida tío, así que mantente alejado de la señora Bilko, si no quieres que te atice un buena tunda con mi VARA!

Fjern bremseklodserne! Jeg er snart tilbage og husk; hold fingrene fra fru Bilko eller jeg skal give dig en omgang med min STAV!

Bremsklötze weg, bin bald zurueck, alter Junge, und halt dich von Frau Bilko fern sonst gibts 'ne tracht Prügel mit dem KNÜPPEL!

I'll bet the guys at Wayward are wondering if this isn't karma kicking them in the behind... bigtime. I sure am.

The "nasty business" was on the HD of the hex editing person who found it. Read the article on the main page of this site.

plummerx, I usually read your posts with anticipation, because you are usually, IMHO, right on the money. But you missed the ball on this one, I think.

I'm no prude, and i don't see the stuff thats in there as particularly devastating.
What bothers me is the fact that it's there.
Wayward were so sloppy as to leave it there, in the midst of all the other problems with the game.
They have remained virtually silent for weeks as customers struggled with this software, yes came out of their hides to make excuses for the porno code.
It's all very pathetic.

The explanation for Wayward's behavior is simple: they can narrow down the errant URLs to one event; the flaws in the games is part of a jumbled mess, defying explanation.

I ran into a bad flaw yesterday. I was watching the computer play. On landing, the plane taxied through a hanger and a tower with no damage.
