Also, how many games did this? i found only 4 games that had reference to this policy:
Might and Magic VII: For Blood and Honor
Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven

And I can tell that those Pokemon games don't have anything you described. Apparently you can get a diploma from Professor Oak in FireRed/LeafGreen but otherwise, nope.
As for demand, if this was requested feature, something that many people would want, it would be in many mainstream games. Mainstream games aim for lowest common deliminator, thus if this kind of thing had lot's of potential customers it would be added, especially if it could bring money to the company.
And for Christ sake you really don't read my post do you?
This could be good solution. It gives everyone what they want.

Please provide examples.
Suppose the certificate would cost 1$. So foreigners would have to pay 16 times more.
And without vast programming inXile would not know your screenshot or a savegame is a real deal (that you did not cheat). And vast programming resources are better spent elsewhere.

BTW, did you notice that _none_ of the companies that "used to do this" are still in business? I wonder why that is....
Do you want your (approximately) 8-1/2" x 11" certificate simply tri-folded and jammed into a letter-sized envelope? Or would you prefer that you receive it with no creases? In which case... [snip]
But if you simply don't care what condition the certificate arrives in (folded, creased, etc.) AND you don't expect anything fancy, then as Mandemon suggested, then you are most probably interested only in the Brian Fargo autograph. Which I guarantee will be the product of an auto-pen, not Brian's personal hand.
I don't know about that but I remember that pledging at kickstarter needed additional 15$ for international shipping (if your reward included something not digitally distributed).

Yes, it must be because they sent out certificates of completion which cost them billions.
But, then, you really didn't want anyone poking holes in your idea,
No, we have pointed out how high the cost would be AND we have pointed out time it will take. Also, don't double post, edit your post.
And you keep insisting that long time ago someone did it. Then why isn't it done today? Someone did it once is not a good enough reason to say that this is valid and good course of action.
Quite frankly, it seems to be your only argument, apart from refusing to acknowledge problems presented and blaming other for trying to derail thread...
Then why isn't it done today?

Now you're a moderator too? I thought you worked as an accountant for inXile?

No, proof of something working isn't good, but random assumptions and numbers are a valid way of attacking it. Good logic there. At least I BRING something. What do you have besides assumptions that could be true or not?

Letter from USA -> no more than $2. It's a fact. How many times do I need to repeat that? No, not all are lost and no, not all are damaged. So, what's your argument again? Again we go with "some"? Because some won't receive it nobody should get it? Or that they should put in a place such an expensive system that would make it so nobody asks for it therefore making the idea pointless in the first place?
First, it's basic forum ethics. Second, if you call me by names, I will report you for flaming.
What do you bring? "Someone somehow did it once"?
then why waste time and money on these?

Really? I remember being called an asshole first.
FeelTheRads wrote:What do you bring? "Someone somehow did it once"?
It's not only "someone" and it's not only "once". But yet again you ignore everything, even direct links to proofs.
What do YOU bring though except for assumptions and made-up numbers?
For anyone who can actually think "something existed" weighs more than "but maybe it doesn't work".
FeelTheRads wrote:then why waste time and money on these?
And we're back again. "Your idea sucks, why would anyone waste time on it???" You don't get tired of trolling, do you?
I don't know why they would waste time on it. For the same reasons (which I don't know) the other companies did it. I really don't CARE about their reasons. The end-result is what was important, which was a nice piece of memorabilia.
But no, that's not good either because you just somehow know that is sucks and that people don't want it
Also, read the edit of my previous post, at the end. Maybe you missed it, because I didn't double-post.
