I asked him the same question about helping solve the problem rather than gripping about it and got the same answer, as in no answer. I have 0% tolerance for people like him, absolutely 0. I for one, will not respond to any more of his comments, even though I have stated so in the past. As for Jason and the rest of the JTCS development team, I know they are doing the best that they can with a program that is well over 10 years old. She is a fine old gaming lady and I will be playing it, making maps and scenarios, and making mods (within in my limited ability) for many years to come.
Rome????? ROFLMAO!!! First off this sim is almost as OLD as Rome and still has the same problems it had back in it's early days. More new members of the "development team". Just what EXACTLY are you "developing"? This thing doesn't need development. It needs an "error/bug correction" team. As in that STILL ONGOING bug of the AI trucks and command vehicles burning off movement points. Oh wait...nobody plays against the AI...I forgot. So that bug just gets shoved aside in favor of things like troops holding horses reins. I wonder how many "development teams" this sim has had since it's inception? What happened to the other guy that was just hired and that everyone prased as the rescuer of this mess? Did he quit already? Or is the development team now as big as all of Matrix? Oh yeah...you guys are working for "gratis". What that translates into is things will be fixed when you get "a round toit". Haven't seen any round toits, so that equates to probably never.
Why do I keep posting here? I'll counter that question with "why do people continue to attack comments I made YEARS ago?" If people would just STFU and stop dredging up ancient history, I wouldn't keep replying to their silly posts. I haven't unsubscribed to this thread and a couple of others in the (vain) hope that a patch promised YEARS ago might actually show up. But instead of a patch, we get more guys being assigned to "development teams" doing god-knows what. Let me just repeat for those that skimmed by it...it's been YEARS, soon to be a DECADE, since the patch was promised. And we still have zip, nada, zero in the form of patches.
In all due respect to you I must make some comments to your post here. Yes, the errors and bugs need to be fixed (the AI trucks and command vehicles) and some others but the good points of the game certainly outweigh the negative points. I am confident these errors will be fixed in time, that involves patience, something that you seem to lack. If you have some program experience or ideas why don't you help to fix these errors, I wish I had that talent because I would certainly try to help. This game is a labor of love, so like a child in his teens the game will eventually grow up and be pretty much error free. If you don't have the patience why don't you stick with Squad Battles (a excellent game!) and stop with all the negative comments about our beloved Campaign Series...we need encouragement, ideas and program help above all! Happy Gaming to you!
In loving memory of my wife, Rebecca. 5/2/52 to 7/13/2014. I miss you sweetheart.
