Okay, so now the response has been achieved, it's time for our motley band to keep up our post numbers, by asking...

....when?

Yep, we need to keep the forum alive.


BTW, seems to me that with this game being fairly simple for modding and what not, that a campaign of some kind could be implemented in some form or fashion. Not being a programmer, I'm WAY over my head.

In some of my games it seems like I can see way to much of the enemy movement even with FOW in the high setting. What does Company Forgotten Few think?

In the scenario editor, use the largest possible map size. One side needs to advance from left to right all the way across the map.

Funny Joe, real funny. Kind of like what you are doing to me at Palermo. Of course it don't feel like a campaign to me, but you know the old saying, "Perception is reality."

So I humbly ask that all of us keep this forum alive and well. I don't care what we post as long as we keep it up, until we get a patch. Thanks!

The more I play this game, the more I like it for it's simplicity of play and learning.

Remember that star count, but a lot of these guys if you read the Combat Command in the general forum did beta testing for their stars. <G>

We are doing it the hard way.

My wish list is a manual that explains it all in a way that I can come to grips with what all is going on. I don't have the experience with board games or counters that you guys do. Combine that with things that turned out to be bugs and no wonder I was baffled.

I do like that this is company level. Sending a division to battle a division is just too abstract for me.

As has been mentioned elsewhere, if Michael is unable to work on the game and there are no plans to develop it further why not open the code for others to work on it?

Cheers

Coupled with not much useful feedback to explain what just happened

Cheers

Tutorial is much better than a lot of wargames I have "attempted" to learn. I was up and playing in no time. It is funny how some of us pick up games and they just click, while another stares helplessly at the screen wondering what the heck to do next. For me DW, WITP, COTA, are games I just can't wrap my pea brain around.

I still haven't learned PZCO, which I know you did a lot of work on J2D. I plan on learning it, just haven't spent the time. CCME, took me 20 minutes to grasp the mechanics. I suck at it, but it's not difficult to learn in my opinion, and 42 scenarios if I remember correctly of varying sizes. Sorry, I like the game so I just can't resist talking about it's elegance of play. It could be in my mind made stellar without a whole lot more work, but sadly I don't think that is going to happen. We will be lucky to get a patch fixing the withdrawal bug. Just to see if Slaakman is lurking, I think it's better than CCCOI.

Yep, Max, game is to good to let die. I can't think of any games with this detail at Company level.

One would think we should hear something from Tim by the end of the week, or am I being unreasonable. How long should we wait before sending in support tickets again?

From the Info Update thread dated 19/1

I spoke with the programmer and he will be reviewing things this weekend. I will post a progress report next week when I am back from training.

Mike and I no longer have forum access from work.


Priority will be the withdraw bug.

Tim


So we'll see what happens over the next few days.

Michael has been in touch with me. He confirmd no forum access from work.

I sent him the details of the withdrawl bug.

If anybody has other comments about withdrawl I'll send those too.

Joe 98 thanks for the update on your contact with Michael - the next bit is in no way directed at you.

I assume no forum access from work doesn't mean no forum access at all.

We have been commenting on the Withdrawal bug for 6 month plus so if Michael isn't aware of the details of the problem, being both the games developer and from the lengthy prior posts on the issue, I would start to doubt the developers ability to fix the problem and continue to wonder why the problem wasn't spotted prior to it being released as an update of an existing game via Matrix.

Again Joe 98 the above is not aimed at you.

We wait to see what we hear direct from the developers this week.

P.S. If the developers haven't got forum access I'm sure the forum's moderator Obselete (who as moderator is bound to be viewing the forum on a regular basis) could keep us updated

Michael and I do have forum access...it is just blocked by our jobs. Michael used to be able to get some game work done at the office but that is no longer the case. Same on my end.

Having a moderator manage the forums and pass on critical information did not work.

I will post an update when Michael has something.

Tim

I'm assuming that this will be in the next couple of days or is the above our update post that was promised for this week.

Sorry for being a bit snarky but we've all been here before 6 months ago.

I do appreciate the pressures of real life but CCME was not distributed for free as a (very good) fan made mod it was sold to us as a professionally developed game.

Wow...feels like the old brush off to me. Hope I am wrong. Was hoping for a little more info than an open ended non-specific "when Michael has something" type of statement. Geez, are you freakin' kidding me?

Talk about a non-answer!

UNSATISFACTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure what else to post...no solution yet. Thought I was doing the correct thing by posting today...reinforcing Joe98's post that he was in contact with Mike. As soon as Mike has an update on his progress, I will post it.

Can't give you a timeline.

Sorry if I was a bit snippy. I am just concerned by the apparent lack of a plan/schedule.

I'm sure this will all get straightened out. But, in the off chance it doesn't, I don't think it would be right for Matrix to keep selling the game with the withdrawal bug. It really is a gamebreaker, and I'm not that fussy

Rather than stop selling if they can't fix it then release the code...just maybe someone else can coming at it from a fresh perspective.

I made that comment in another post. Just releasing the source under GPL or something like that with out the graphics and scenarios. You would still need to buy the full game to play. Same as the Doom3 source code and stuff. I think that would be a win-win for everyone IF Matrix wants to stop supporting the game.
