I haven't done C++ since like 2003, except for some modding on Civilization 4. Email me when you guys switch to managed code (C#) and I'm all over it.

If I were to win the lottery, one of my first decisions is hire several people to aid in making this game before I'm a senior :)

I hope you have found someone for this position, because I have been desperately waiting for a "modernized" version since 1996. I wish there was a kickstarter or fundability option cause in the words of the Great Fry "Shut up and take my money"

We added an additional programmer to the team a few months ago and things are really pushing forwards. Too soon to give any real estimates on completion but we're making good progress!

Thanks, that is good news indeed.

Please let us have a decent AI and a good level of command & control!

Gary is spending a lot of his time on the ai and I know his goal is to provide a strong ai that exceeds the ai in Steel Panthers. As for C&C, I知 betting you値l be impressed with the command system and the way the interface will show it to you. Erik, Richard and the programmers are doing great work. Steel fans will be happy.

Excellent! Thank you for that; sounds good news indeed.

Can we expect an entry in the 'Upcoming' games soon or is it still early days?

I've made an assumption that, since the original Steel Panthers was WW2 based, this sequel will be the same.

Here's hoping!

Any update about the Steel Panthers remake, any roadmap somewhere?
I'm still playing Sp:WaW sometimes, looking forward for the remake!

Many thanks
