Many thanks from a "mature" player for ALL the hard work, dedication, and effort that has gone into getting JTCS to version 2.01! [:)]

[&o] Your team had breathed "new life" into a classic game system!

Who would have thought, that when I walked into a game store 10+ years ago, and purchased an interesting looking war game titled "East Front II" by Talonsoft, that it would still be a favorite of mine... AND that new development work would be underway in 2014! [X(]

It's really an amazing story... and I am grateful for having the opportunity to play and enjoy this "classy lady" of tactical WW2 warfare!

You're welcome. Glad you like it.

On my part, Rising Sun was my first game in the series, c. 2000 IIRC. I definitely recall correctly my initial thrill at playing these games.

Fast forward 13-14 years. I am equally thrilled, and humbled and honored, at having the opportunity to program and "breathe new life" into one of war gaming's classics. Life takes strange turns. Who would have thought?! [X(]

Me as well, stumbled onto the original EF, and never stopped being my number one wargame!! I just love delving into the underpinnings as it were, to make it even better, a true honor to work with the team on this!!

LoneWulf63 -> RE: Thank You Matrix Team! (6/21/2014 3:10:39 PM)

Me too. I am also very honored to be part of this team. Great bunch of fellows and a pleasure to work with.

Here's to many more years!

I also started with EFII all those years ago and have played the series for countless hours.

Very happy to see that the system is being cared for by a dedicated team - thanks very much guys!

I want to express my thanks too. I had purchased a number of Talonsoft's Battleground Series, and when "Europe in Flames" came out, I bought it on the strength of the Talonsoft name. Once I played "Europe in Flames" though, I never went back to the Battleground Series.

I always thought the artwork in CS did an excellent job of capturing the feel of the era. I still do. The photos in the F2 box also kept the game anchored in the era. The historical information in the F2 box added immensely to my enjoyment. I'm still amazed at all the effort that went into the information behind the units. Only someone fascinated with combat units and technology in WWII would have bothered to put that in.

I remember my initial impression of having leaders drive around in cars with tanks was that it was goofy, but it quickly became a nonissue. I also remember I was disappointed that casualties were in steps. In Battleground, casualties were listed as a number of soldiers. That too quickly became a nonissue.

Been a long time since I brought the original Eastern Front incarnation back in 1998 and have played at least every other day since, a totally classic game that has had a few hiccups now and then over the years but sense has prevailed most of the time and it remains a classic game that I still play normally daily all these years later.


scottintacoma -> RE: Thank You Matrix Team! (6/23/2014 1:48:40 AM)

I will add my thanks to the team as well. I have played since EF first arrived, and have everything. Been playing the Matrix addition since I found it, and still enjoy the game.

Thanks to the team seems to be not enough but all I can say for keeping this game going and updated.

ceitein -> RE: Thank You Matrix Team! (6/29/2014 10:35:57 AM)

My enduring thanks to the development team for keeping with this awesome game. The free upgrade to version 2.01 was a mighty and unexpected pleasure. I fully expect to be still playing this game in another 10 years, at least. I hope you guys are willing to stick in there with us!
