Ian Trout, from SSG just recently posted at the R5 forum that it would be at least one month for the patch, so call it two months, is End of November my guess...
Hello Ravinhood, did you buy BIN, it is awesome.. how abot Rome TW?
Good to see you again.. so to speak
LOL Hi Freeboy, and no I didn't buy either, RTW is a TOTAL letdown and well BIN is direct download only (have dialup) and I'm not paying $50 +$10 for a cd without a "MANUAL", the box I could care less about, but, if I'm going to pay $60 for a game I sure expect a MANUAL I can lie in bed with and read myself to sleep before I play the game again. I don't own a printer (my ex-girlfriend took all my printers, the beach lol, heh, but, I stole all her RAM!! lol), so, I have no way to print out the pdf or whatever txt file it uses either.
I'm still playing SPARTAN, and tweaking that ole ai file of mine. It's still one of the most challenging games I have and I have some Combat Mission PBEM games going. Gawd I hope Battlefront doesn't follow the path of Creative Assembly and come out with some stupid kiddie click fest rts version of the Combat Mission series in their next renditions.
I'm still disappointed in Matrix for not finding some way to release boxed versions or even sandwich bag versions of their game with a "MANUAL", somehow, someway. EBgames, Best Buy, Software etc., Walmart or Hastings even. Just takes too much of my time for a "download" and then no manual to go along with that. Looks like my Matrix games buying days are limited to ebay and amazon.com as some people grow bored of them and toss them up for sale there. I'm an old dog you can't teach new tricks to, especially when it taxes MY energies moreso than the companies. I'll just keep chewing on my ole favorite chew toys and save my teeth and energy for those toys that other companies put in my FACE to bite on (retail sales). ;)
What about that NWS site Matrix? I buy HPS & Shrapnel games from them, why don't you try to make some kind of arrangement with them to sell some of your games that can be ordered "complete" without having to "download" anything??????
