Re: Drive on Moscow release plans

Still unclear as to why this is not a free update for previous IOS owners. Please explain why Slitherine/Matrix patrons are punished for buying the previous version? I just found this thread, but I will give you two reasons: 1. Slitherine is releasing this game under their App Store account. There ...

Re: Beta Dieppe Tournament V1.1

Update: peterjfrigate and bfume are progressing well with peterjfrigate as Allies. We're restarting our other scenario [with bfume as Allies] on the new version since I was getting my arse handed to me. Didn't dot.comCTO suggest you would be handing arses out to each of us, Bfume? Did you pay him h...

Re: Beta Dieppe Tournament V1.04

Re: Beta Dieppe Tournament V1.04

Sounds great guys. Nicely organised LandMarine... Anyone want to place bets on first round winners?... Definitely a tough start to take on Ranger. I might not make it to the second... Good luck lads! Well, BFUME is a good buddy of mine, and we've played a few games of BA together. Frankly, he's bee...

Re: Question on deploying 75mm anti-tank gun

I'm not an expert, nor did I set up the data, but most mid-sized guns are deployable in buildings and bunkers. Bear in mind the level of abstraction means that we aren't really talking about an individual house really. Cheers Pip Thanks Pip. I always forget about the abstraction because the house l...

Re: Question on deploying 75mm anti-tank gun

Hm. Not sure I agree with that explanation. Firstly, BA has different graphics to represent the state of a house. Again, I agree with you about placing a unit in rubble, but this was distinctly an in-tact house. Secondly, if you look at the stats for that gun ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7.5_cm_Pa...

Question on deploying 75mm anti-tank gun

Not sure where to post this question, but this seemed to be a sensible spot. I'm in the midst of playing a PBEM game with a friend of mine. We happen to be playing the Winter Village Remix scenario, and on one turn, I was able to see one of his German half-tracks deploy a unit into a house. Due to o...

Ah. That's brilliant. Thanks!

I'm going to guess on a late-2013, early-2014 product launch though I'm leaning more toward 2014 given the projects that have already been announced for the Slitherine team.

Re: Slitherine links with Games Workshop on new licensing ag

Wow! That's quite the announcement! I already have a vision of a Battle Academy-style game set in the Warhammer 40K universe! That thought alone just blows my mind.

:D

So when does the iPad version come out?! I figured I'd start asking now and avoid the rush. :P

Re: Replays & PBEM misuse alerts

Full replays and watching battles is on our wishlist, but it would be a ton of work and require an entirely different way of storing and replaying our turns. The next update will allow you to replay the last turns worth of action any number of times prior to giving any orders to your units. Cheers ...

Re: Replays & PBEM misuse alerts

Hi Pip! The replay replay is going to be in the next update, which we are beginning to pull together, so hopefully no more than 2-3 weeks. Very glad to hear that Slitherine are implementing the multi-replay feature, and I'm looking forward to that one very much. Until then I really would recommend n...

Re: Replays & PBEM misuse alerts

Hi FrostWolf, Right now, I only play against friends and family, so I tell them that this is what I'm doing. Personally, I'd be fine with a notification to the other player about multiple reloads, but only AFTER the "multi-replay" system is implemented. Personally, I can see how it would work very c...

Replays & PBEM misuse alerts

Iain/Pip, We've had this conversation on the TouchArcade forums, but I wanted to ask about the PBEM misuse alerts. As we discussed in those forums a couple of months ago, the PBEM logic would detect and report if there were too many reloads of a particular game. At that time, we discussed how this w...

Thanks, Iain. But...I guess that means I can't throw my hat into the ring for the PC:AK beta.

Boo.

Thanks anyway!

Re: New Titles Announced for 2012

Can I just say that I'm loving the iOS support? I already love Battle Academy, and now I'm super psyched for Panzer Corps, Field of Glory and everything else headed to the iPad. As an old war gamer, I can't thank you enough for the support (and you'll see the same on the TouchArcade forums)! 8) --Do...
