Bertrand from Cyber Stratege was kind enough to run SOWGB through it's paces.  I wish that I could read French because he gave us an 8/10!  We're really getting some great reviews and the community is growing.  The game is set up to localize to other languages, it's just the resources and time that we lack right now.  But it's something on our list :)

 If you can read French or want to take a trip through BabelFish, here's the link:

While I was perusing the Battles and Leaders of the Civil War which consists of reprints of articles from the Century Magazine issues printed between 1883 and 1887, I came across a few articles written by a private. Warren Lee Goss. These articles are out of copywrie but are interesting reading for anyone interested in the Civil War from an enlisted man's point of view. Below is the first article entitled "Going to the Front."

Just want to give a shout out to Shane Taylor who has very generously created a great little iPad wallpaper app for Scourge of War.  It's really the community here that works the best in getting the word out and increasing our player base.  Which helps everyone as it's easier to find players in the lobby when you want to play.  Great thanks from the NSD team to Shane for taking the time to help us out!

 To grab the app, you have to have itunes installed and then this link should work:

Flash of Steel Interview with Jim & Norb

Last night Jim & I sat down with Troy, Julian, & Rob from Flash of Steel.  We discussed Scourge of War and how it came to be.  Luckily Jim had my back as most of it was focused on the history of Gettysburg :)  I think that I get so deep in the code and the analysis of the programming challenges, that I fail to connect what I've written with the personalities that drive it.  I know how the game behaves and why technically it behaves that way, but I don't get deep into why the request was made.  Designers, testers, explain to me the battle or an issue with how the AI behaves and I translate that into a problem for the code, something that fits into the engine logic and get it in there.  Taking that high level explanation and bringing down into something that can be programmed is how most of my work is accomplished.  I take that description and interrogate them until I have an answer that I can use.  Usually this would seem to be a challenge to overcome, but I think it actually adds to the process.  I don't get involved in the debate over how things should act, I just quiz the victor on the results and make them happen.  Not all that different from any of the other industries I've programmed for.  But much more fun :)
