The reason the site may exist is because it does not hurt graalonline in any way
It exists due to necessity. It's obviously a very vital tool. I've visited the site many times over the years, and had personally regarded it in high standards. Due to its reputation and allowance to exist among the community (as I had previously said in no certain terms) at the forefront, then I'd expect it to operate sufficiently enough so that the Graal owners could confidently sit back and continue to allow a third party to fill this much-needed void.
Your whole statement is making it look like you think a gfx website that exists for a few years and gets used by a lot of players magically becomes an official asset of GraalOnline which is simply not how things work.
But it is being treated as an official asset because there is no alternative (if there is then somebody should be testing and endorsing it), for as you've said "Making Graal more money". If a third-party is attracting this much attention and bringing revenue to a company, but not quite displaying the standards that the company wishes, then it's a common theme for the company to stamp out the third party by releasing a similar product. That is how things work. It's basic business.
Shouldn’t have relied on graal viewer in the first place really.
You're right. That is an obvious statement, and in my book, merits nothing but a sarcastic reply... for example: If I had done something really stupid, and one of my buddies came up and pointed out just how stupid I was for doing it, then I'd elbow them in the rib and start off "DURR HURR NO $#!% MATE REALLY?!" lol xD..... My reply was meant in that regard with no ill-intent... I've just retired as a 10-year on-road guitarist, and during that time, I'd developed the habit of being completely explicit with everyone I came across, so you'll have to excuse my informality. Aside from that, I'm too old to become defensive over something so trivial. These days, you'd basically have to physically assault my mother before I get huffy ʕ-ᴥ – ʔ
Again, I was here to display this memo:
Do not trust the Graal Viewer. Plain and simple.
If you're reading this comment and, like Eugeen, have already disregarded the viewer- if you already consider it common knowledge that this application is faulty- then I apologize for your time spent here.
And with that, I have nothing left to say, and find no reason to spend any more time discussing it, cool? I've only ever come to the forums to talk extreme shop. I thought this case was worthy enough for me to drag my butt back here one last time (especially because I've seen no word on it during my five years of Graal).
