Chateau vin  ... What a great name for a wine.  Think of the label possibilities.

(Hmm... I have a great picture, but I do no know how to include it in this message. I'll go to the "must reads" and learn.) (Ah... My picture is too large. Drat!)

When I was attending school in Athens (way back when) we used to roast a gator tail as part of our preparations for the Cocktail Party every year. Hmmm..... I moved out west in '89, haven't been part of that party since then and things have gone downhill for my Dawgs in that matchup ever since...

It's useless anyway, as surely some symbolic Egyptian woman will come along to do a Mosain rescue.

Some interesting information in there. Operational losses seemingly were often around half of total losses. And almost 1/5 of Germany's losses were trainers.

" Soviet Union: Total losses were over 106,400 ... " Damn, that is a lot of planes. Helps explains how there were so many Nazi aces with kills totaling 50 and more.

I'm wondering... once the game goes gold, what is the subsequent process? What is the reason of having to wait for two, three or four weeks more when the game is basically ready?. Some QA process or what? I'm really getting pissed off with those QA guys, and I don't even know them...

In my understanding 22nd or 23rd is the release date not the Gold announcement, so we have to sleep only 21 till then :D with a Gold coming these days, probably next week is not too optimistic.

We haven't announced a specific release date yet. What I've said is that we are _aiming_ for late June and the anniversary. A lot depends on the printing time for the manual which we're doing in full color (about 330 pages) with a new printer, so we'll see. I can say it won't be any earlier than late June and the longest it should realistically be possible for it to slip is 2-3 weeks.

Regards,

- Erik

Erik, the manual included is a big plus are there any extras planned for sale like a map or anything of that nature?

As always thanks goes out to you and the rest of the staff at this site.

Thank you very much for the update. You can't imagine how much we appreciate being kept informed. Even if the date slips (and God knows a lot could still go wrong) it is great to know that the staff knows us well enough , and is willing to take the time to keep us informed. It's more like being a "member of the family". instead of just a customer. It's a good feeling!

Please look into a laminated map, I never purchase the WITP one because of this, or how we could get it laminated.

I've been getting my maps laminated for years - every town I've lived has had one or more services that will do that - for a fee. Start googling and you should find one. Kinkos will do it - but they might be the most expensive. The lower cost ones were people who operated a service from out of their homes.

I purchased one, had it laminated at Kinko's, and have it sitting behind me now, where I plot every bit of signint and usefull sighting reports that I get. It's very usefull to get "inside my opponents head".

Printed manual?  Color?  The?  Man, I still remember printing out the original manual on my printer.  I think I need a boxed copy.  What's the price going to be?  Sorry, been gone a LONG time.
