So I subbed for over two years, plus multiple stretches of months before this latest stretch, for I guess over the last 5 or 6 years. I’ve really enjoyed the product and have taken the time to get good at the DJ while DM mindset. I’ve made custom encounter soundsets for my players, uploaded sounds… the whole shebang.
My understanding was that anything that was released while I was subbed would still be available. Sounds fair enough. As far as my monthly costs to host my game online for my players, Syrinscape is the most expensive line item. So it was always good to know that I’ll retain access to some workable portion of the library if I only subscribe long enough.
I stopped my sub recently… but now I actually just cannot get anything to play. Either I am clicking on things I now no longer have access to, which is fair I suppose, but why am I seeing these… and how do I find those things I do have access to from the lefthand soundset list?
I have spent a not inconsiderable amount of time trying to find anything that will play. Even the global one shots… and just nothing plays.
So, either the promise to have access to soundsets and sounds has changed since I first was made aware of it (if you don’t sub your don’t get access to anything)… or the UI is not doing its job to inform a lapsed subscriber where the content they have access to is because that which you have access to is mixed in with everything you don’t. Either way, I’m disappointed and a little frustrated. I feel I have paid near to a king’s ransom over the period and being so summarily shut out feels like I have been conned.
Thanks for reading.
