Erik,
Its been almost a month since your last report...Do you have anything new for us? Can you please post some kinda screens or anything yet?
If you look at the posts....you can see there are alot of people still interested in this title...Might be a good idea to get some PR going and get some Game info going to start the fire again....
just a thought.
Erik?

Regards,
Mike

It's been three weeks, time sure flies. The only issue is that the busier I am working on finishing this (and other games) the less time I have to promote it. The marketing folks here will start posting a lot of info and promo materials during the last month or so before release, but until we get to that point, it's easy for time to get away from us as far as keeping in contact with you all.

I'll post some screenshots later today to show the final interface and look of the game.

Regards,

- Erik

Cool...really am interested still in this after all this time..more so than the CoH game I prefer "so far" the way LnL has gone about using the PC over say CoH. SO fingers crossed.

Can't wait for this either. COH PC was the letdown of the century for me. WCS took a wrong turn at every corner IMO.

I just want a game with more depth. Although I like the CoH interaction of players during the turn, I'm just not sure if the system is almost too simplistic for my liking. Maybe it is the small number of units available, but the action almost seems too similar for every session.

Lebetron, what is it that they went wrong with? I knew you were unhappy with the direction concerning persistent ap's, but were there others. My initial reaction when I was first offered to try the game was not very good. But IMO, it still beat anything else on the market. There of course isn't much out there.

Were you a fan of the boardgame? Have you revisited it since they added classic ap's and the boardgame maps? Those have helped I guess, but I really want something with some depth. I wonder if they spent too much capital making it 3-d.

Why can't we just get a game that is like ASL? I want various buildings, many different movements, weapons, more combat results, leaders and leader actions, tons of terrain types, many different levels of units and differing types of squads etc ala ASL. I'm just not sure that CoH, even in its original form, could ever deliver that.

I'm not dissing CoH by any means, I'm just wondering if the system may be at fault.

I do like the look of HoS. Much like the looks of ASL. I am not familiar with that system either. Does it play closer to ASL?

I'm with you Bro...didnt care much for CoH...Thought it was going to be abit more like what I'm thinking(hoping) HoS is going to be like...
I seen that app that dude made for CoH for his iPad and thought that was going to be more along the lines of how the marketed CoH was going to be like.
Lets hope that HoS is going to be more of what we all are thinking its going to be..:)
Man...this is deep...lol

I am with you guys...I just can't get into CoH, have it and am working to try to like it, but yea it looked better on the IPAD...maybe that is in my mind why I cant really get into it.

guess it was the imagery and how it was laid out that didnt appeal to me. What I saw of the old videos of this(HoS) and the way it is presented seems more like an active boardgame and is what I was looking for.
Oh Yah..."SCREENSHOT"....please??

active boardgame


That is what I really want. No need to reinvent the wheel. Just a great looking game that looks like the original, intuitive UI, Netplay, capable AI, and automated book keeping. I don't want everything under the hood. I want to see the why's and how's of the rules that I know. Show me bonuses and to hits etc.

The boardgame maps for CoH do help with the looks quite a bit as do the hi res counters.

Similar but not with similar complexity.ASL,with the years,has become quite unplayable due to the thousand of rules to remember
L&L have a very good board game graphics and i hope that have also a detailed combat system ,in particular with regard to the AFV.

Which is all the more reason why ASL needs to have a PC conversion.

Yes,the PC can remember the rules for you but if the rules are thousand the problem becomes to write the program(without bug!).
