Perhaps he could do what JonSea31 is currently doing with a certain other game.

The best bet is to not ask and wait patiently. I personally don't hold my breath for any update of The Price is Right, as I know asking is practically the same as asking him to put himself on the line at risk to face Fremantle's wrath. If Jon is willing to make that risk, I'll jump for joy; if he isn't, than that too is ok.

If you read thoroughly, it wasn't Fremantle BigJon was having problems with.
Certainly more competent in running a game than Roger Goddell.

Actually, further development is on hold, due to "burnout" and some pricing games remaining that may be too complex for me to code.  I may resume development someday down the road, but I am not sure when that will be.

Since a few weeks ago, I am working on two game show PC games that are likely "safe" and may put me in much lesser risk.

He was referring to my post about a Season 40 update, not the thread's original topic.

And we all know that Fremantle is not to blame.

However, I wonder if BigJon will make a one-time allowance and let us have a copy of his Season 40 game as long as he does what he did with the last release?  Even if he has to release it privately?

The thing is, if he makes that one release, then everyone gets instant gratification until Season 41 rolls along then everyone wants another new update. If he releases it and people upload videos of his S40 game all over than Fremantle will clearly know he released it and bring his behind to jail. I don't think it's worth going to jail so that people can keep wanting more and more updates. Everyday he said he gets a ton of PM's on youtube/here and emails asking for an update, I don't think that's the best way to go about trying to get one, by nagging, but that's just me.

Well, did Fremantle ever say how much they want for a license? I know that Fremantle when shut down Pacdude's bombombombomwooooo.com button, they said they wanted $300 for a 1-year license (pacdudegames.com/fail if you still want to donate). Maybe if enough people donated money (like on the wooooo page), Jon could get a license for a year?

Well, I guess one way to get access to a Season 40 game:  Create my own and play it to my heart's content.

That said, I am very questionable about releasing the game at all.  I probably may strongly reconsider by not releasing the game at all.

If they did want a license, were talking thousands, not hundreds...Howver they dont want the game released at all, even for thousands.

Yep.  The forum is down.  I wonder what the reason could be?  Something wrong with his server, perhaps?

Also, I did try to access the forums from the Forum tab on the main page.  The Download tab would highlight no problem, but the forum tab doesn't highlight at all.

You can't. He got slapped with a C&D many years ago, therefore distribution of the game by him or anyone else is illegal.

Not only is it gone but it’s also a security nightmare with Flash, which will be discontinued very soon.

I log into this forum for two minutes for a break away from the cesspool that is social media, just to lock a thread brought back to life by an obvious troll... 🙄
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.
