NorbSoftDev has to give a big shout out to JD at Slitherine for his help with this matter. He took on this matter from the beginning and did all the dealing with Paradox. Thanks JD!

Interesting... It takes guts to admit when you are wrong. Good for Matrix.

Definitely an excellent review that correctly identifies many of the best aspects of the SOW franchise.

Or 2nd Texas Infantry to you. To us he was the newest member of our little brotherhood that spends all their free time trying to recreate history.

yeah its sad....

i didn't know about him though, i just joined yesterday.

Wow. Such a terrible tragedy. Made all the more poignant to learn he was just 34 - a few day shy his 35th. We always seem to lose many of our best and brightest, either by war, heroism, or tragedy, far too soon.

My most sincere prayers to the Bonin family.

Very sad to hear this. I have exchanged some emails with him over the years and I felt like some real personality shown through the typing.

So very saddened and sorry to read this. I'm learning so much from so many here. May God Bless and comfort all of those left behind.

My best to all...

It is really sad to lose a comrade with no warning. We have a little better appreciation for how the line soldiers felt after a battle when one of their squad members that was there in the morning is gone forever.

Rest in peace John.

-Jim

Not a scenario generator, but Sandbox is very similar. You have many battle options to choose from; attack, hunt them down, defend, line of sight, objectives, etc..

I believe the GCM MP group also has random scenarios or something similar.

Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago by Mazikainen #52804
Aw, nuts. I've managed to get a couple of friends to play MP with me but only coop versus AI. Yellabellies too scared at the prospect of seeing me on the other side of the field.

Ah, well. I suppose the superior general is he who needs not fight.

Does this mean Scripted actions are now possible for AI in multiplayer? As I've understood there has only been dynamic AI without scripted waypoints etc. before..


Unfortunately not. For head to head action scripting is obviously unnecessary. However, for coop play, this would be a great addition. Hopefully, this will be considered for the next engine. It's not just a matter of requesting it, preliminary testing has shown this too buggy.

NSD will no longer be selling SOW from our site. Matrix will be selling it for us. This gives us more time to make games! Nothing much changed, just where you go to buy. Scourge of War version 1.5 with replay!

Yes. And if you do, I believe you can download the full 1.5 Matrix version of the game (without having to download 1.4 first).

Posted: 5 years ago by norb #50784
Yeah, that's a huge advantage of a publisher, they can print much less expensively than we can.
Posted: 5 years ago by Michael Slaunwhite #50782
I was just looking at the prices at Slitherine, and my God $39.99 for the Boxed, and Download Version? NO ONE can beat that price for a game of this quality.
