Haha, did you win in that game?

Yep time will be scaled correctly, the calander starts from the 1st September 1939 and runs until September 1945.

Single battles/operations will atke place on pre set dates. but the grand campaign could be played through from start of the war to the finish of the war.

Indeed, I hope I won't need to stop working on it, Its just that progress might grind to the point that I don't really have anything new to show/tell for a period of time. but the way i see it, is that even if I do as little as change afew varibles or testing in a night, its still progress of sorts....and thats the important thing.

Good luck with this game, I remember playing a game similar to this afew years ago. Can't find it now and can't remember the anme of it. It was a turn based RTS about the BoB. Damn hard but damn good, now as im older and wiser wnated to try my hand at it again.

This could fulfil my needs nicely!!

Indeed, Especially in this day and age when very few games come with guides or manurals to tell you what those buttons acturally do.

In BotA im trying to restrict the amount of buttons, so all interactive elements are nessary and do something resonably major to effect gameplay.I also aim to provide the player with as much information as possible within a couple of clicks. Nothing worse than having to troll through 'layers' or menus of a GUI to find out a value or peice of data you might need.

Congrats on getting this done, pretty cool game, might pick it up as it reminds me of that old game 'fighting force' and i really enjoyed that.

Its saddening to hear about your piracy issues, hope you can find some way to stop that or at least not make it so easy, if its not already too late.

Id personally prefer a demo, this is just for piece of mind as its released by the actual development team as opposed to being repackaged by a 3rd party. I am still someone that doesn't trust torrents anyway (even legitimate ones).

This is a fair point, the benefits we are getting are not worth the hassle we have/are going through.
Also we never said there was anything wrong with XNA 3.1...we were perfectly happy with 3.1, our concern was that Microsoft, being Microsoft would *probably* pull the plug on XNA 3.1 before too long...Whats the point in funding support for 2 versions of the same software?

What we wanted to avoid is getting caught with a close to complete project then being forced to upgrade to 4.0 anyway....meaning we would have had these problems regardless...but with a massive amount more code to sort out and retest.

There are also afew benefits to be had that I didn't mention,for example framerates have been increased across the board and im sure theres afew more that are not as ovious.

Overall I agree with your point, and wish we didn't have to doit and could wait until the end of the project and upgrade before the next one, but its a gamble that so far hasn't paid off....only time will tell if we judged MS right or not.

Though you might wnat to update your main company website (Lukewarm not PC) as its still splattered with info about Unigine...doesn't look good buissness wise if on one site your working with Unigine and the other UDK.

Forgive me if you have another project on the go thats using Unigine or soemthing. :)

Looks immense!,very very impressed,

Whats was your over riding reason for dumping your orginal engine ( the name of which I forget, my bad!)...it seems to me alot of mods are up in the air about what engines they will use as there is now quite a selection on the market particularly in the FPS genre.

Though UDK is amazing, no denying its potential, but there have been other quality mods turn its back on it with (surprising?) claims there is not enough programmers who know Uscript....not enough level designers who know UnrealEd etc etc.

Kinda throws a spanner in when ya got some top quality mods moving from UDK and others like PC moving too it.....how was the transition?

Looks completely rad though and good job fellas :).

hehe, don't worry ive already had my worth from these packs, they were orginally distributed for a fee several years ago, then for whatever reasons I can't remember Nermin and I agreed to make them free,which tehy have been for awhile, then afew months ago Nermin closed his website (the only place to get them from) meaning they wearn't avalible anywhere. he has allowed me and zicorp to become there new home and 'do what we like with them' so we are distributing them to as many sites as possible to help indies/mods/devs etc....while also getting the zicorp name out there :).
