    DropTeam - Abandonvare?

    As I just said elsewhere, the part of TBG that made games left TBG with Clay Fowler, and Stan Marks has not been able to get a hold of him. So Battlefront would have to contact Clay, and that could be hard.

    DropTeam - what can you tell me?

    Sorry for forgetting to update this topic, but here it is: Stan Marks and Clay Fowler no longer work together, the part of TBG that made games went when Clay left, and Stan has a hard time getting hold of Clay. In short, DropTeam is dead.

    PC Sales Tanking

    I don't think so. That finding covers prebuilts from OEMs, not retail parts that high end system builders and self-builders use.

    DropTeam - what can you tell me?

    DropTeam is gone, though its developer TBG is still around: http://tbgsoftware.com/index.html I wish DropTeam could be resurrected. Edit: TBG's Captcha form is broken, so if you want to contact TBG, here's their email address from the BBB: smarks@tbgsoftware.com

    Where to aquire?

    I don't know where you can buy it. However, the developer TBG Software is still around. Here's where you can contact them to see if they can help: http://tbgsoftware.com/contact.html

    Where can I buy this game?

    According to MobyGames, DropTeam was made by TBG Software. I've hunted them down, Stan Marks co-founded TBG with Clay Fowler: http://tbgsoftware.com/index.html Poesel, I've sent you a PM.

    I still have my copy, sadly it doesn't work with OS X 10.9.5. I really wish there could be a DropTeam 2.

    Please, bring DropTeam back. Please. :(

    Lots and lots of agendamonering for "natural". Would not cite.
  10. http://alienbabeltech.com/abt/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=33165 I discuss the violation in full here. Ignore the ignoramuses who can’t understand the kindergarten math that if someone sells for less than Steam, then Steam is selling higher and running afoul of Valve’s new policy. Here are the guidelines for antitrust reporting: http://www.justice.gov/atr/contact/newcase.html

    Valve Flagrantly Violates Sherman Antitrust Act

    It's not optional when Steam holds ~80% of PC gaming marketshare. I believe the restriction applies to those who use Steam, and as I said, that's not optional anymore. The gamers voted with their wallets and said they wanted a monopoly. Look what it's gotten you. It's gotten the Order of War: Challenge multiplayer community raped by Valve. And the tech press covered it up, ensuring that it only broke in Forbes and only received 1 report by a tech press member months later.

    Valve Flagrantly Violates Sherman Antitrust Act

    Here's what's going on. Valve released a new Early Access policy recently. It is in response to price gouging by scam websites. But instead of restricting maximum prices of early access on other websites, they prohibit anyone selling early access games for lower than Steam.

    Favorite WWII movie or movies

    Kelly's Heroes. "Woof woof!" + Donald Sutherland + Clint Eastwood + Telly Savalas = win.

    Today in History

    14 October 1944 Field Marshall Erwin Rommel took poison to save his family and staff from the vengeance of Hitler. Enjoy this tribute to him:

    Combat Mission and Steam

    I have a feeling the equation doesn't give much weight to sales.
  16. Why does CM not take advantage of more than 1 core? Is it too much work to write the code to take advantage of 2 or more cores?

    Combat Mission and Steam

    Long story short, convenience. Wait until their monopoly turns them evil. Look at YouTube. Oh wait, Valve has already turned evil with Order of War: Challenge. Following Square Enix's taking down of their DRM servers, instead of living up to their can-do-no-wrong reputation and integrating the game's online DRM into Steam, Valve did nothing. Dedicated members of the community kept Order of War: Challenge alive by using VPN. Valve's response? Rip the game wholesale from people's libraries, then restore the single player to people's libraries after the outrage. As Benjamin Franklin once wrote, "Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor liberty to purchase power." So if you get banned from one of them for any/no reason, you don't lose everything? I thought you would appreciate redundancy. I also noticed no Origin among them, anti-EA bias much?

    Combat Mission and Steam

    Same can be said for GamersGate, GOG.com, and others. Not at all. They're just asking why Combat Mission needs to be on Steam. I can't blame them for not wanting to get involved in a virtual monopoly on digital game distribution. It's ironic that the same people who whine about how much trouble YouTube or Microsoft have been since they've had a monopoly have no problem whatsoever with a Valve gaming dictatorship, especially when the people who have no problem with this are Linux users. Hasn't happened yet to one community in particular that meets those criteria.
  19. How many cores can Red Thunder take advantage of?

    Combat Mission and Steam

    Digital distribution makes you scared of physical media: http://techreport.com/news/26624/time-to-import-those-old-games-to-digital-services I myself have an extremely dim view of Valve, seeing as they are bordering on a monopoly in digital game distribution, they are the most overrated developer of all time who make the most overrated games of all time and get praised despite making nothing but FPSs, their fanboys who threaten to pirate games if they don't come out on Steam (Amnesia: The Dark Descent GOTY (I think) and Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition come to mind), and their idiotic handling of Steam Machines. Their handling is so incompetent that Alienware and CyberPower PC are releasing their Steam Machines with Windows instead of SteamOS.

    It's such a shame that DropTeam is discontinued. I wish that one day we have a DropTeam 2.

    None that I know of. Dunno.

    Sadly, it is. DP isn't even up anymore.

    Is Dropteam Dead?

    Not to mention that since there's no servers, every time I go into Network and hit Refresh, it just cycles and never gets me anything. No patches also means no fixing of that annoying bug where every click you made just depressed the Players tab in the Tactical screen and got me nowhere. And where DropTeam 2? It's been over 2 years since I last heard from Clay about it.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but any possibility of Delta Pavonis being resurrected for multiplayer fun?
