    I'm a complete newb when it comes to games such as this. Is there any chance that I could find a good "how to" walk through? Are there plans to create a training mission, post a YouTube video, or...?

    I appreciate the looks of this game. I just want to be able to become quickly competent.

    Thanks in advance, and I appreciate all of the blood, sweat and tears that must've been poured into PURE.

    We're working on a simple "how do I play this" guide, that will be included with the game, that will include illustrations and helpful hints. Expect to see that in RC4.

    Haven't fetched the release yet (PURE crawls on my PC) but I developed the launcher - unless Argh has renamed the file, it's in the Program Files\PURE folder and is called Pxtl.AppLauncher.exe. It was developed so that he would only have to put one icon on the desktop - I don't know if he put it in the Start menu.

    It's only in Windows, since it's a VB.NET 2.0 app.

    Look for the icon on your Desktop that says "Play P.U.R.E."

    Found the front end, thanks. I've tried Spring several times in the past but is just not user-friendly (and i didnt manage to enjoy spring.......at all) so a front end like this is very welcome .
    First mod that i test for spring is P.U.R.E. ;)

    I'm happy to hear that a comprehensive guide is in the works. Sounds like I'm not the only one who's struggling with operating the game correctly. The fact that it's going to be illustrated is a big bonus in my book, and I'm confident from how highly polished the visuals are for the game that the manual's going to be a real work of art in itself. I'm really looking forward to RC4 now.
