Well gee. That must be very easy to pull off, right?

Why not use these?
Because it looks like eleventy billion hours of setup and editing by professionals, you know, people that you'd have to pay.

Well u an sorry just that these guys are taking so long we were supposed to have a demo by now and it's 2017 Neil said 2016 October and all i see is a website that has a boring page on it so i am always thinking that this game is a scammer just like that Knight Rider fan that was scammed for her parts for months so how can you guys be so defending when some of you know i am right.

You and your scam crap. I didn't take anyone's money. I didn't run a Kickstarter and I didn't ask for donations. Never. Not once. So who am I scamming again? Oh you're mad cause we're fans and hobbyist game developers with lives outside of the project. Got it.

The game is going to be a while. Plain and simple. Maybe even another year (I really hope not). We're down to 2 guys working on it and it's an ambitious project. The demo is very late because my PC's motherboard fried on me. I'm far from rich so I have to wait until tax returns come in to repair it. All I have for now is my test rigs and they are not powerful enough to run the game engine tools.

People support the project because I took the game to a few events and let people play it. So they know it's real and also understand that things can and will go wrong. That's life. Sorry.

Firstly, I assume you're once again confusing Neil with the game's creator, Ken. Beyond that though, I'm stumped as to why exactly you think it's acceptable to call him a scammer?! He's spent nothing but his own hard earned money on the assets required to build this game, and just because it didn't arrive when you wanted it to, it doesn't give you the right to drag his name through the mud like this.

To be blunt, you owe Ken an apology.

Aha, the crux with any created item. The masses want it perfect, in the least amount of time possible, for the lowest cost.
Sorry, Ken...

"why not use these kind of Graphics for the game?"

Because msKEN isn't Rockstar Games and is working with two others, not a entire team.

Very cool video! :good:

My gaming enthusiasm has decreased during last few years because lack of free time. Just occasional Gran Turismo 6 session and very rarely any other game. As there's not been any updates nor any new DLC to the GT6 in a year, it has gotten repetitive and boring. Haven't even gotten the GTA 5 even I'm sure it would be great game. Yes, I'm still with PS3 and not sure when I'll upgrade to current generation console and which one, providing I'll upgrade at all.
Gaming PC's are too expensive for me, for example my current laptop is not powerful enough to run modern games. Still, I'm sure a good Knight Rider game would be fun to play :)

...

Seriously. Ken has accepted no cash from anyone but his own pocketbook. No scams to be found at all. Making video games takes a long time. Especially if it looks more advanced then Pong. Making video games is also crazy expensive. There are others with visions of kicking out some grand game and open up Kick Starters, only to come face on with reality and everyone loses their trust investments.

Very seriously...I'm tired, a bit grumpy and I truly feel that someone whom is putting forth a grand effort on their vision without the assistance of others deserves to not only be protected from any form of prosecution, but even treated with a bit of presidential secret service protection. So...he had hopes for making a presentation game by such a date and life got in the way of those plans. It is sad to hear that his volunteer staffing has diminished, as well. After all, in the world of the Knight Rider, even one man didn't truly do it all. Same goes for real life.

As for those GTA graphics...if you really, truly want a dedicated KR game like that, go hire a whole crew of professional game makers out of your own money sources. Given that game making companies declare bankruptcy with a million left in the bank, how about you set the opening budget at...oh...say twenty-five million. Oh...and don't expect to charge a penny upon the release, neither. Universal would Cease and Desist you in no time, flat.
