    Anyone still playing SC1?

    Is there anyone else besides me that prefers SC1 over SC2 and would like a game? Email me on gmclauchlan@bigpond.com if you want to play. Seems I am down to just 2 opponents now

    Rebirth of SC

    Nice to hear from aesopo again - I agree with you 100%. Indeed an updated SC1 (with hexes of course) sounds like a great idea. I still play SC1 with 5 opponents and all of us would love to see an upgrade. Good that Hubert still reads the SC1 forum

    MPPs and connection to Capital question

    hi Michael - When you buy SC2 you get a second download for free so you can play a friend. One of my friends shared his download one at a time with 3 of us but like your friends no one liked the game without hexes so we continue to play SC1. You can buy a download version of SC1 for around $15 - very reasonable. I do however remain hopeful that a 3rd version of SC will be made, and made with hexes like a proper war game should be.

    SC Enhancements

    Armuss - Are you talking about the alternate sprites that make the map look a lot nicer/ I can send them to you if that's what you want
  5. Hey Bill - Nice to see you still look at this forum but your comment "most of us have moved to SC2" doesnt sound right to me. I think most of us moved to SC2 and came back to the better game here at SC1 and it is time you came back as well. Of course we can always hope for a SC3 game that will have hexes and I will meet you there.

    0x8007007e , then nothing happen

    Teabag - I have a simple suggestion that other gamers have done. Simply re install your computer with windows XP. Anyone who still plays the Rise of Rome game will have found that it cannot be played on Vista so when I bought a new computer last week, I insisted on win XP, and then I got it for a cheaper price

    For the record (I still play SC1)

    Hi there Just another wargamer!. I have already finished with SC2 and am back playing SC1 with Dozer, Roving Greek and 46th Panzer. Contact me if you would like to play. There were some good points in SC2 - but I prefer SC1. I'd love there to be an SC3 combining the best points of both games (or at least what I consider the best points of both games)

    Lets get back to SC1

    Well, I tried SC2 - certainly tried it for longer than Lords of the Realm 3 but today I unlicenced it and gave it to someone else. Good to see some old friends back playing SC1 now - I am back up to 6 current games but could use some more. Hubert - if you read these posts, can I just mention a company called Ascaron - About 7 years ago they produced a great game called Port Royale. They responded to suggestions by producing (so far to my knowledge) 6 similar games. How about you do the same for SC. Some of SC2 was good, but the isometrics, large pieces and no hexes ruined the game for me (but I concede, not for others). I hope to see a SC3
  10. Well Hubert, I finally got SC2 and spent the weekend on it. Didnt really mind the lack of hexes but couldnt cope with the isometric view. Liked some of the features, but overall, for a wargamer this isnt the game. Perhaps other people will like it and given the time you spent on creating it, I certainly hope so. However, I didnt like the big pieces and the big squares. I am going back to SC1 and really hope that you might think about combining the best features of both games and produce another game for wargamers (with hexes).

    The Hex/Tile Problem

    I read Ike's comments a bit late to add to the discussion as it is now been closed. I emailed Ike to congratulate him on his intelligent comments and he tells me that I was just one of many such emails to him. I am already resigned to Strategic Command ending - a real pity because it was such a great game. I have a group of 4 who meet at my house weekly to play games. No way would we be interested in a non hex wargame. Hubert!! - You did a superb job on SC1. Why are you wasting your time on this Tiled SC2? Listen to your potential customers. Even at this stage you can surely drop your tiled version and come up with a game that people really want. We have all been caught with poor follow up versions of games (Port Royale 2, Lords 3 AOE 3 etc). I hope SC isnt going to end up like these games.

    The Hex/Tile Problem

    Nice to read your comments - generally they were well written. I was hoping to get a really dopey comment like that guy who doesnt know what rockets are for when he says he cant break through strong points. Interesting about the original patches - I didnt know about that. My 1st version was 1.06 with one patch to follow. Perhaps Hubert can work on a hex patch for his new game

    Sending Naval Units to the Fifth Dimension

    Nicely explained Bill but it would be nice if the bug could be fixed on this game. Due to a crazy decision not to use hexes I wont be playing SC2, so having it fixed there will be of no interest to me.

    My 19 game winning streak!

    Well, its nearly at an end. With losing positions against Roving Greek, Kossuth and Bill101, its a race between the three to see who will be first to break my run. Thanks to all those people who have allowed me to get away with those 19 games; particularly to Kossuth who should have won the previous game against me.

    re-conquered France

    A pause is fine, but to avoid the 4 hexes around Moscow and Stalingrad is indeed poor form. Cant remember who did that to me but he is on the list of people I wont be playing again.

    My 19 game winning streak!

    well - you are close, most of the time I played Roving Greek !! (Sorry henry)

    re-conquered France

    I always take Paris. To avoid taking it, is, I believe the actions of a Rules Mechanic - someone who exploits weaknesses in the game (or rules) for an unrealistic event. The same applies to surrounding an opponents capital without taking it or avoiding the triggers for the Siberian garrison. If someone does any of these I counter with a quick resignation and dont play them again

    Survey: Do you plan on buying SC-2?

    SC1 has been a great game that has appealed to all my old war gaming mates but without hexes it really holds no interest. The screen shots make it look like a poor version of Civilisation that I didnt really like anyhow

    The two most frustrating features of SC1

    Did I read somebody say SC was outdated? - Im still playing Age of Empires (Rise of Rome). Anyhow its not as outdated as a non hex war game - SC1 rulz !!

    Loss of Fog of War

    Today I loaded a PBEM game while I had a lot of windows open and saw a strange turn. I heard the sounds of the battle, didnt see the moves but could see my entire opponents armies and their strengths. The computer finally stopped and complained it was out of resources. My guess is that a computer low on resources wont load the fog of war. Any comments?

    Poll at Firebase about SC2

    I wonder Kurt if the developers have finally realised that the old wargamers who play SC wont be interested in a non hex based game and have stopped the poll. Hopefully they will soon work out that the Civilisation players who enjoy a tile game wont play a WW2 game and maybe, just maybe there is still hope for a proper WW2 game from Battlefront that actually improves SC

    siberian army

    But tell me Comrade Trapp - is it possible that the Siberian Army wont transfer? I have taken Moscow, the options dont have 'war in siberia' clicked and my poor opponent is wondering just what i have doen to stop his Siberians arriving

    *** SC PBEM LEAGUE - Has Ended ***

    hey Curry - my emails to you keep returning so thought Id contact you here. Thanks for running the League and you are right when you say new players have to lose a few games at the start. I used to be top of the 'losing streak table'. I hope you will keep running the League when SC2 comes out because Im sure Im not alone in believing that war games are played on hexes. And a question - how long does a PBEM game continue and is it a draw if time runs out?

    Battle of France AAR / Wehrmacht vs Alexander

    Hey Wehrmacht - you will hold Paris forever if you dont have your next go. I think your tank holding Paris is down to a 1 and you have just 65 points to spend. (I live in a suburb called Frenchs Forest about 15km north of the city centre)
