Sorry for the delay in responding!

Well, I have unfortunately been busy with other tasks lately. But I have cleared up some time and I am working on the recruiting rules and the interface for it. Here is a sample of the City Report Dialog with a new 'pane' for seeing details on the city's population, including manpower for recruiting:

Here is that same dialog with an update and values added for Recruiting:

I am a little behind this week, but I'll try to post more screenshots next weekend.

Here is a screenshot of the recruiting entry for the city report dialog. I have improved the data layout and refined some of the manpower calculations.

I must take this moment to report some disappointing news. I won't have The Fall of Rome ready for beta testing, let alone release, any time this year. Maybe next summer. I realize that this stinks. But I don't want people to hope for something this Christmas when I know that it isn't going to materialize (my game, not Christmas. That is still scheduled for Dec. 25th ).

Back in March I thought that I could get some additional funding. But I couldn't. And so I spent quite a bit of time just working to pay bills.

I really hate to be in the position of selling vaporware. I am making progress, and I have scrounged up some money for the game, but I still have an old contract to get off of my back. When that is done then I can work full time on The Fall of Rome.

If this is too much information for this forum, well, I feel it's better to err on the side of too much rather than too little.

Thanks for your purchase of 'Hannibal' and your interest in further efforts from Forced March Games.

Thank you for the update.

I rather would have had Christmas delayed. But getting one out of two ain't that bad.

And there can not be to much information.

Looking forward to next year, and perhaps a release for next Christmas.
