Yes the version you have is pirated of course. Nobody gives away full free copies of the game for trial without any reason or way to purchase them. Are you saying you didn't relaise it was pirated when you downloaded it from a torrent site? If you are not a pirate I expect you to immediately buy the game now you know your mistake.
Regarding knowing that the game was pirated - I would have to have "testicular fortitude" the size of coconuts to go to the developers site and complain, knowing that the game I was playing was pirated.....
Similarly, in almost every single post I have made, I have made reference to the fact that until the game pi**ed me off at the start of the norway campaign, I was going to buy it. (And by "going", as in the last day I played and got frustrated, was going to be the day that I went online and bought it - at $42AUD via your website, which is where I found this forum.)
And as buying it now, I'm in two minds. One one hand I want to support you, as I admire your effort in producing a version of what was my favourite in the 1990's.
On the other hand I don't want to waste my money on a game that produces little enjoyment (at the moment). I'm in the middle of my shift cycle at the moment (and so haven't had an opporunity to play the game since it last pi**ed me off), so I will wait and see if I feel like playing it again in a few days (when I have some free time), and if I feel like playing then I'll happily pay. Of course, if you don't hear from me again (or one of my posts get deleted again by "Lord Zimoa" as irrelevant) then that will mean that I am unhappy with the game.....
EDIT: I've just purchased the game, as even though I might not want to continue to play the game, I feel that the effort Matrix has put into it should be recognised....
