Will there be a delay due to iOS 7?

No, we have no problems because of iOS 7 that I know off.

Any chance we get this by end of October (my fall break)? All this grading of papers & tests and nurturing of young people is wearing me out. ;)

Got it running on iOS7 and iPad two and higher, our aim is to even make it run on iPad one.

Trick is reducing the memory footprint with old iPads, the memory has increased with newer iPads, so we see how far we can optimize and make it run on the iPad one as well. But so far so good.

Will the game be "cross platform compatable"? I understand this term to be like Battle Academy where one could have an email opponent who you send a turn on your Ipad on the subway and the opponent sends you a turn back on their PC and then you send your turn back on your Mac at night.

I'm really excited about this game and think it has the potential to be the best grand strategy game on the Ipad.

I agree CTGW does have the potential to make you lots of profit! But (this is my opinion) Panzer Corps will be better :) I say this because CTGW is just waiting (like he actual Great War) until the AI leaves a blind spot in his lines. You then exploit until they stabilize the front. Then rinse and repeat!

Yes like Panzer Corps, Commander is cross-platform compatible.

Probably not iPad1 but all other should be OK (currently testing on iPad Mini which is more or less iPad2). iOS 6.1 will be most likely required (at least I mean).
Is Svetozar Boroević von Bojna an Austro-Hungarian leader in the game?
I am afraid not :(

Now that the PzC beta has been announced, I'm sure the CTGW beta is just about ready or in its final stages :D

Downloading Commander The Great War iPad internal first Beta as we speak. Official Beta is coming closer and so does the new patch.

Still issues that we need to resolve as loading speeds, memory footprints, maps size reduction, User Interface optimization and some redesign, but all is working and functional. It is not yet a full iPad user friendly game, but this will be the last hurdle to take.

Will the patch for PC be released before iPad release or with the release?

Are we still going to beta test the MAC version of the game? I noticed the beta test signup was taken down. Is that a good sign or a bad one??!!
