So, what you're saying, Sarge, is that the game will go gold on Monday?
That's great! I'll start spreading the news in gaming forums all over the internet immediately...!

and that is why I got crewed out the last time

on my fourm, I don't even try to offer any hints

and

I am the dumbest, stupiedest, retardest person on the forum

so that said, it is not ready until it is on the front page saying it is ready, and even then it may not be ready :)

(I get yelled at, I going into hiding and not repling to anybody any more)

Where is your forum?

And since you responded, I am going to take that as an unequivocal "yes, its ready, so give me your credit card number."

Here it is: 4532 7634 2748 2783

Please charge that to "Peter Njiri" of Kenya.

The thing that sticks in my craw is knowing the release of the game is being delayed by the manual.

Since when does COG require a manual?

I'm waiting as impatiently as anyone, but I'll be glad to have a manual that isn't out of date by the time the game is released! (hopefully)

Actually... I hear it was the Seahorses (Cavalry that somehow ended up in a sea battle). Personally, I would have like to keep them in.

The manual will not be out of date, I guarantee you. The only significant addition is that we just added a map overlay intended to make it easier for players to keep track of their territorial goals. (In the original COG you had to go back and forth from the main map to a screen and then another screen to get this info. Now it's much more user-friendly.)

The best thing is that now that we've put an abridged version of the manual into the game as in-game help text that you access with the F1 key we'll be able to update it whenever we have a new patch. That new overlay, for example, is going to be in the help text.

Wait, did you say you get an in-game manual with pressing the F1 key! 

Wow, that just made my day!

That is awesome, I wish all games did this. Will the help text be editable outside of the game, that would be nice to write notes in it.

I guess being an old Cav Guy is working against me here...What is the expected timing of an announcement for the release? Y'all have done an excellent job of confusing me...

Thanks!

We're working on the gold master now, whether it will take another day or a week depends on how things go, but we're very close. After that would normally be the wait for physical production, but we're considering doing an asynchronous release and allowing the online release to precede the physical release (all options available on release, just a delay before physical copies are ready to ship). Any opinion on that from the audience? As long as you guys could order Digital + Physical to get the game right away by download while you wait for your boxed copy and printed manual to arrive, would you be happy?

Regards,

- Erik

Erik I like the release plans you laid out also, my vote is yes.  No reason to have customers who want the digital download version only wait until the phsycial comes in.  Also since you can order physical and download as well this will please every one.  You can get the download when ready and if you want the phsycial order that option so you can play right away and wait for your physical to come in.

Erik, please, please, please do an asynchronous release. That would make me - and I would bet many others - extremely happy.

Yes, it's in orderinary HTML files. I've been able to make changes with Dreamweaver just as if I'm using a word-processor.

Seems like my question earlier sparked some activity!  I guess it does pay to be an old Cav Guy!
