Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

I agree that Matrix Games and other wargaming companies are not just the be all and end all of what is on sale. We need all wargaming companies to remain in business, without strength in numbers, our hobby will fade away.......... I have purchased WITE etc and while enjoyable, I would like to able t...

Re: Approval for game purchase ?

Hi Iain, Yes, the email that I received was the ''Thank you for your purchase of: (1) - Panzer Corps: Grand Campaign 45 East - PC Download..." and I was able to download the 1945 Campaign by clicking on the attached link. I apologise if I appeared to be a annoyed, as I was, it was the first time tha...

Re: Approval for game purchase ?

Sorry you are having problems. I think this is related to PayPal as they sometimes take time to process the payments and clear it but if you give us your order details we wil look in to it. Please mail them to info@slitherine.co.uk with a description of the problem. Hi Iain, I had the same problem....

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

I think it's obvious to everyone who needed the merge the most. For Slitherine it was a way of getting into the States but I doubt they needed to merge, more an expansion. However, while Matrix games may not be prefect, I would rather that they still develop and support wargaming. Do Matrix Games s...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

Would love to see a remake of Steel Panthers but have lost faith in Matrix Games. There handling of Combat leader and Close combat served as a warning. I no longer believe anything they say and think twice about buying their products. Nothing but praise for Slitherine though While I do not like say...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

As far as I understand it, they bought the electronic rights to everything from SL through to the last vestiges of ASL and everything in between. Suficiently so that MMP can't even so much as offer a pdf file of the print manual they sell. And by sitting on the rights and therefore the game, a comp...

Re: Strategy Games but not realtime.

While RTS have there place in gaming (somewhere & for the young) I agree with Rudy, Possum and Honvedseg that you spend way too much time racing around the map instead of using strategy. Rudy could not have said any better " As we original computer gamers are getting older, our reflexes are getting ...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

[quote="DSWargamer"] I know someone had to have the rights for when that abomination PC game was released. It had the name on the box, but it has zero to do with the name on the box and the software was beyond worthless as well". Why can't the game rights for the as you say the "abomination PC game"...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

Thanks,

You are right in saying that computer game AI's are not as good as playing against another wargamer. I am currently playing Napoleon against another wargamer on-line and often play all weekend a couple times per year.
