Coolies

Yes, inExile now needs to try and buy the code for FCR as that would make the game amazing again.

Think this answers it... (aka read the first post... ;))

^ Ads are being removed for paying customers. Freeloaders still get the ads. ;)

Playing the game through FCR vs. the traditional interface is like choosing between efficient computer based tools vs. paper and crayons . . .


I am included in one of the people wanting the FCR back. It was a fansite made by SK89Q but we have little control over its fate. We hope we will see it back again someday (and are working towards facilitating that, too!).

If anyone out there wants to put together their own fan-made tools I'll happily host it (I have some webserver space I'm not using) and put a link to it somewhere.

BOOYA NO MORE ADS. That "Partnership" with INXILE was more like a one-night stand!!!
My gateway laptop takes me to the "Gateway Search Page" whenever it cant find something, so the ads reloading every 20 seonds meant I had at most ten minutes to complete a design before I got ZAPPED away from FC....And the FC .SWF is laggy...

As far as I can tell, the ads are already gone (for me). Just blank boxes where ads used to be.

That was actually pretty quick. Well done!


Never mind...But I'll wait.

yeah! just no ads for paid members! that way, if they hate ads so much, they'll pay :10bux: to get the full version! and you should be able to turn the ads on or off if you've paid, too.
