To save you all the trouble I'll start the inevitable thread of...WHEN????!!!!????

As the hectic Dog Days of Summer begin to wind down there should appear the clouds of a Red Storm. Could it be at that time that they let slip the Dog's of War?

Good Hunting.

We are now listed in the Beta-Testers Section of the site as a game to sign up for as a beta tester. Still not sure about the selection process on this new system, but you can get your name on the list.

Look for Beta-Test at the top right of the main Matrix page.

Good Hunting.

Late summer? The campaign season will almost be over! ;)

I can (grudgingly!) wait on the game, but I'd also love to help you guys if possible. I've been waiting *forever* for a platoon-level (best scale for this era IMHO) Cold War Gone Hot game. I've still got my ancient copies of Red Star/White Star and Mechwar '77 under my bed. So, what I'm saying is - I'm qualified lol. I've got literally every book I could find on Pact vs NATO from the mid-70's to '89. Currently reading "Red Thrust" by Steven Zaloga, which is great fun since it's entirely from the Pact point of view.

Anyway, shoot me a PM and let me know if/how I can help. People who are "into" this subject matter gotta stick together. :)

Kondor, if you go to the main Matrix home page, there is an option tab at the top right of the screen for beta testers. We are one of the listed games.

Update. All scenarios are finished and pounding the Beta Test team severely!

The campaigns are being finished so they can be tested and PBEM testing is about to start.

The light at the end of the tunnel is the Matrix staff working hard to get ready to put FPC:RS in your hands when we hand it over to them.

Soon...very soon.



Good Hunting.

MR

Do you need more testers?

We may pull a few more testers in the next week or two once we resolve issues with PBEM and campaigns. Both are very high priority for us right now.

The game is running so well that the code has been locked. That's a major mile stone in the development of the game!!

It's a huge testament to the dedication and talent of the team to get to this point. Everyone, from the Beta Testers to the developers, is working hard to get this game ready for shipping.

... But we are still squashing bugs in PBEM++ and the campaign and getting remaining features up and running in those areas. We are getting much closer!

Everyone is working hard to get the game gold worthy for its rapidly approaching release window early next month. There is a small chance that the few bugs we are currently dealing with could knock us out of that window. If that happens we will let you all know. That is the reality of computer game development.

Tombo,

The manual draft from layout is in review and needs a couple edits. I can check with Erik and see if we can post a printer friendly version on the site ahead of the release. No guarantee. Everyone is crazy busy.

Did we say the end of summer?

The first day of fall was last week. So, we missed our first target.

However, October comes directly to mind...

Good Hunting.

jnpoint,

Looking somewhere between the 8th and the 10th. The gold master is done, but there was a glitch on the manual images sent from us (somewhere in doing them the resolution went from 300 dpi to 96dpi) and it may cause the boxed version to fall behind. I'll see if I can get a Status Monday from Matrix.

Price: Can't say. Matrix will put that up when the game releases per their standard operating procedures. I can say it will be less than other modern warfare game released in the last few weeks.

Oh darn! I was so looking forward to another 27 page discussion...

Next weekend is a three day weekend for me, so as long as it is out before Friday I'm good!

OldSarge,

Must be nice on the holiday. I'm in Ohio where Columbus is the capitol and we don't get it off.

As for the "pricing threads" I'm sure we will here something and I will cheerfully direct them to page 28 of the main forum on the topic.
