I think that most of us just want to feel that they are being heard. Mature people will understand if some things get delayed or cancelled altogether, but to be lead by a carrot on a string and never getting the carrot,... that's another thing. I want this game series to be the envy of all and can see this actually happening but it feels like we are being forgotten along with this excellent product. Maybe I am just a bit sensitive...


I can assure you the Patch hasn't been cancelled. But it certainly has been delayed. Hopefully the delay will be over very soon. Maybe after the holiday, someone from Matrix will stop by and post a message.

And I really do understand the the frustration that everyone has expressed.

thanks
rick



Rick-

I appreciate you taking the time to explain the situation to us. Very professional and much appreciated. Let's hope we see the patch in the very near future.

Regards,

eggmansdaddy

I think what's frustrating myself and other people is the Matrix staff don't seem to be participating on the forums as much as they used to.

It's been getting quiet and it seems to me that most of the posts are limited to upcoming releases and review links.

It's all about supply & demand. Sadly new games come down the pike and folks like Erik need to be involved with the games were the cash flows come from.
Matrix & Battlefront need cash flow to survive and look to the future. It's just a fact of life.
At some point older games like for example NASCAR Racing 2003 and CM:BB need to survive on people like Steve (Mad Russian), Rick and Mobius. Plus at sometime
the "team" needs to work & develop their new game and the community will need to supply support for the old game.

PCO is a good game. I have a wish list for the future, but that's another thread

Hi guys, the latest information I have is that the demo and update, which are finished, are in the release queue and just dependent on other announcements. I was hoping they would release earlier but it looks like a release next week is just about certain at this point.

Regards,

- Erik

Rick, the truth is no attention by Matrix means no attention. There hasn't been anyone from Matrix in here in months. The patch has been ready for months.


This, by the way, is incorrect. I do stop in regularly, I often don't have time to post or new information to share. I've posted to the internal team including MR as often as I can to inform them. The update and demo were certainly delayed far beyond what we'd expected and that was definitely our (Matrix's) fault rather than the team's fault, but that is not because of no attention.

Regards,

- Erik

Erik-

Thank you for the courtesy of a response. We'll see what next week brings.

Great to know there's work going on behind the scenes.

I recently had to reformat my computer and re-install all of my software, including this game. The good news is that I could finally get the game to start on my computer!

I generally like the game and am very much in look for a good tactical East Front game; I have tried APOS and CoH, but don't care much for them yet.

I keep hearing references to a "new game" but still have no idea what it is supposed to be...an updated PCO on the Eastern Front? An updated PCO on the Western Front? A whole new engine? No idea... I think the modability of this game is very good but haven't seen much mod activity, presumably because no one wants to spend time on mods without knowing if there is a future for this game.

Sure would be nice to know where you all are heading with this...

I dont dislike a lot game but sometimes is to abstract and suffer from a lack of info, i find random battle generator poor, i cant select the units i want in both sides... forced to play with OOB fixed, i try to find how made a random with Tiger II VS IS-2m but cant do it and i dont have time to create a scen (that looks not easy), apart that game needs an enciclopedia to see all game can offer.

Other question is the poor number of keys to replay a turn.

The Scenario Editor is where you have found a way to view the info on units. Select a type unit from the dropdown lists and press the PID button.

If anything PCO can be information overload. There is every conceivable form of data that's in the game available to the game designer.

As far as how hard the scenario editor is if you are going to use a map included in the game, with very little practice you can create scenarios easily in under an hour. That depends on how detailed you want your unit names to be, how many units you want, how many and what denomination you want the VP's to be, all information on the units themselves. Whatever you are looking for is in the game.

Good Hunting.

Thanks for the point about editor to see units... i miss in the list the Jagd Tiger hehehe.

And well, the point in a random generator for battles is do it fast, if i need create a scen to find the battle type i want... see for example the CM and Achtung Panzer generators... for me in a tactical game when you create a random scen you need select units at tactical level (1 by 1 is even better but buy sections is enough for me) with a list of all material avaliable in the date you select for battle.

You are right, the Random Battle generator doesn't allow you to select specific units you will fight with. You can use the Presets button and the sliders to influence the KIND of units that will be fighting. You can also create your own Preset file pretty easily. I think junk2drive explained how to do that in another thread a while back.

Thanks
rick
