- A Lot Going On
Next Update by:
January 1st, 2007
Well, it does not look like the end
of the year is going quietly. There is a lot going.
The biggest news was released a couple of weeks ago that I have acquired the
rights to the second scenario disk, "The Greatest Battles of the 20th Century".
This was the second disk for the original Perfect General published by QQP, and
many people have asked for it in the past. It has 20 scenarios which are a lot
of fun. Definitely different from the WWII scenario set. The WWII set was
authored by Mark Baldwin, the Battles Set was done by Bill Sarubbi. The Battles
set when originally published suffered from poor quality control to some extent,
and after converting them I have spent a good amount of time cleaning up the
maps and scenarios. They are definitely a lot of fun and I would highly
recommend them for any PG fan, of course.
I have not mentioned it anywhere else, but will mention here that there are
rumors of a "lost" scenario disk, which never made it to publication before QQP
switched to PGII. I am looking into this possibility. Also, there may be a new
disk at some point in the future, as I continue to talk with Bill. There will
also be a patch to do some minor adjustments to PGIE and its editor.
I have prepared a patch for EDEE. This patch fixes some important issues. One is
there has been a fault discovered in move to order points, which are quite
popular. If you have enough of these and a lot of units using them, there is a
possibility that the game will crash. This has been repaired. Oblivion (maker of
the UltraDB Mod) has found a few problems with using customized World Building
DLL's that have been fixed, as well as some issues with CTF/KOTH games under PBM
have been discovered.
Thanks to all of the fans that have sent in saved games and reports of issues.
If you can repeat a problem with a saved game, it makes it so much easier to
fix. It is staggering how complex the EDEE is as a computer program, and you
help and patience is greatly appreciated in these matters.
It seems to me Salient games is running some features on the WWII mod I have
written about in the past couple of reports. It seems to be shaping up nicely,
and I know a lot of folks are looking forward to seeing it. You should check out
that website if you have not had a chance.
This month I am reducing the price of Galacticards to $11.99 . I have gotten
inspired and have rewritten the design of the game, and I am quite excited by
the changes. I have reduced the price to hopefully make it attractive to some
more people. If you have not looked at it yet, please try the demo. It is quite
different than Empire, and might not suit everyone. But it is fun to play in my
opinion, and I have received some good information from players out there about
how to make it better. The new design will take out some of the difficulties of
waging war on your opponents and such. I am not sure yet if I will move forward
with it, but there is some exciting stuff there and I am seriously contemplating
With the advent of the new year, my current working contract will begin to be
winding down and I will start making some decision on my next project. Probably
after next month, I will begin some design discussions in my forum that I hope
some of you participate in. If there is something you would like to see, let's
talk about it. You can post about or send me an email.
So that's basically all that's happening now. The new scenario disk should be
available shortly, and we should get those patches out at some point. With the
beginning of 2007, keep your eye out for discussions on where some things should
go. I am looking forward to talking about the future. This will be the last
report of 2006. I will try to make the next one on New Year's Day, 2007.

- All Sorts of tidbits
Next Update by:
November 27th, 2006
I am determined that this status
report will be released on time. Was going to put it out yesterday, but then it
got busy….it always seems to be busy. But here it is, with tidbits galore.
I understand the WWII mod for EDEE is still under development. Evidently some
time is now being put into the AI scripts. From the text messages I have been
receiving it sounds like there has been some success. I have even received
a scenario - and I have observed before that this guy makes good scenarios. Also
some description of KOTH and CTF scenarios. Here are a couple of additional
hi-tech cell phone pics I was sent :
I have seen this DB now and it looks quite interesting.
The ED ladder of Giovonni's went down for a bit this month. That was
disappointing as all versions of ED were played through that latter, and it had,
what I guess is now about three plus years of ratings history behind it. I was
starting to get concerned as it was down for a week or so but it looks as if it
is now back up for the moment. There is also talk of Breaker at Salient games
starting a ladder.
Vex had just sent out an email regarding the Summer Soldier tourney I was
running last year. I had to respond to him that it took so much of my time that
it was cutting into the development time to try and maintain it. So it slowly
fizzled out. I did not see this as a failure, except a failure in cloning as
there are not more of me to do the work. I recall the countless mails and work
that was done by Sir Lancelot on the original tourneys. (what a character he
People like Giovanni, Breaker, and Sir L give so much to the community. Also the
DB mod builders like Oblivion and Rich, as well as this 'mystery' WWII mod
developer. I am a firm believer that the community makes the game. And these
guys help support that. They all have my thanks and gratitude. I would ask
everyone to appreciate them and possibly even help them in their efforts. Send
them a scenario you made with their DB. Send maps you created for the webmasters
to post. Talk it up in their forums.
There is some exciting news on the Perfect General front, which I am not quite
ready to post yet, but should be so very soon. There will be a patch for PGIE in
the coming months as well, but that is NOT the story….
And speaking of patches, I am hoping to do one for EDEE before the year is out.
My list of fixes and reports is reaching the critical mass point, so hopefully I
will begin work on that soon.
It sounds like a player has met the Galacticards challenge and broke over 300
turns! If you have played for quite a long time, you know that sooner or later
you have population problems which generally eat you alive. Well, he has learned
a way around this through superior management skills, and there are some hints
as to his strategy in the forum. 300 turns. Wow. He did send me a saved game.
Very fascinating stuff.
So that's about all I have to report on for now. Look for the news about PGIE in
the coming weeks. Enjoy your gaming!

Yep, another late report. I got busy
and carried away, and I have not wanted to write a small summary of what has
been going on, for as you will see, this report is going to be slightly
I have continued to do some
research, and implementation plans. I did finally convert my old Gettysburg map
for PGIE. It is a huge map with a great deal of interesting terrain.
Gettysburg is a very interesting battleground, and I would encourage folks
to go there. The map was inspired by Richard Berg's SPI classic "Terrible Swift
Sword". Here is the
Boardgame Geek Entry. I always loved that game, and the map especially. I
made the map in the early 90's, right after I hacked out the data structures for
Perfect General maps. The map is now available on the
On the ED from, I have gotten some
interesting pictures of a "World War Two Mod" that has yet to be shared with the
community, though I have been told "real soon". Well, no fine wine before its
time I'm sure, and this looks like it is going to be cool. These were sent by
the mysterious designer 'X' on his cell phone. I will put the titles to them as
they were sent to me.
"AI Infantry Assault"
"Units in game, so far"
Obviously, someone has been working very hard at these. I have not seen this
mod yet....I cannot wait to see the real thing, and I am sure it will be a lot
Hey, if you have pics of a mod or something else you found cool about Empire
or Perfect General, go ahead and send it to me, and I will try to post it up.

- Moving Into Fall
Next Update by:
September 25th, 2006
Summer is wrapping up. Not a lot to
say about this month, besides the fact that I got to visit Elvis' home. That was
more interesting than I had thought it would be, and I would recommend it to
Not that I am a big Elvis fan, though I do have a Gospel CD of his that is
pretty darn good, but seeing the home in its arrested mid-seventies makes me
laugh to think that Empire was getting its start around that time. I seriously
doubt if Elvis ever played it ;> But it always amazes me to realize how classic
the Empire series truly is. Maybe I need to have an Elvis icon for the General
Unit in EDEE.
And of course the Perfect General Internet Edition had its third birthday this
month. I received mail from fans wanting to know if there is more in store for
that game, and there is. But it takes time, as I continue to work my contract
through out the rest of the year.
Though the contract takes up a great deal of time, I have been working on my
Direct X Interface, and am quite pleased with the progress. My plan is to have
the Interface pretty solid by the end of the year, so that when my contract
ends, I can begin working towards the next version of Empire games. Hopefully it
will be a little more intuitive and attractive than the earlier versions. I will
keep people up to date when I think I have something to show off, but that
should be a while.
For those folks looking for the updates of the World of Warcraft Mod, I do hope
to release that this week (compatibility with 1.12). I did post a note about it
in the forum, and should have it done soon.
And speaking of the forums, the Mod groups both in the swarm forum and in the
yahoo forum are really starting to share ideas and concepts for alternative
games of Empire. Some very interesting discussions going on. If that sort of
thing interests you, you should check them out.
So as I said they would be, things are slow here on the development front, and
will continue so through the rest of the year. I will continue to post the
status reports monthly, at least to show there is still a heart beat back here.
I do answer my mail as frequently as I can, which is almost every day. I enjoy
answering questions and talking about the games. Of course, you don't need me to
talk to, as there are hundreds of other fans in the forums and yahoo boards. And
if you think that is not enough, don't forget to suggest the game to your
friends. I continually get mail from people who are just now hooking up to the
Internet and discovering that Empire and The Perfect General are alive and well.
And if you are spreading the word, thanks so much.

- Pretty Quiet
Next Update by:
August 28th, 2006
First, let me apologize with being a
week late on the declared delivery date for this status report. I had it in my
mind that it was the last Monday of the month, when a month ago I felt it should
be the 24th. Making these reports is important to me, because one of my intents
is to show you I am still alive, and thinking about my games. (I also try to
show this by responding to mail and forum posts). I have seen other small game
shops kinda disappear from the map as it were, just by then failing to respond
to the community. Empire and Perfect General have great communities, and I will
continue to support them, and these games will last for decades to come.
This has been a quiet month for Killer Bee Software development. The patch for
EDEE was released, and I am happy to say it has not had many issues. There did
seem to be one issue where players playing PBM games would have problem. Saved
games were saving up ok, but when the earlier-versioned player saved back down,
subtle problems occurred. It took some sleuthing and saved game file help from a
couple of fans to determine that issue. Fortunately, something like that can be
resolved externally, by both parties being patched up.
This patch also was the VC8 build/release. I have not heard too much from the AI
people as of late. Hopefully we will hear something sooner or later. I know both
UltraDB and SoloMod were altered after the patch for some improvements.
I have dedicated most of my development time to working on this "next
generation" interface for Empire. At some point, Empire will get a nice face
lift. It is my hope to work on these interfaces and have them built to my
satisfaction at some point, but currently I am still only experimenting. Issues
being explored are portability, flexibility, and a simpler use and design. I do
plan to be studying these for some time. As many of you will remember, I am
currently working a contract for a business firm, and expect that contract to
continue for a while yet. My research plan coincides with this contract, so that
when it completes, I will be ready to move towards rapid implementation. But
that is all next year. This research is very active though, and I am pleased
with what I have designed and experimented with thus far. Obviously, I am very
interested in hearing your ideas on what you feel the interface needs.
Currently what I have is very generic, but it works both in GDI and Direct X. I
have evaluated many graphics engines, but I have not made any decisions as to
whether or not any would be very helpful. I have also investigated a 3-D
perspective for Empire, but I have not found I adds very much. So it has been a
very quiet month, and August will prove the same. But I will continue to work on
my interface ideas. And would love to hear yours.
Also, coming up this month will be the 3rd anniversary of the release of The
Perfect General Internet Edition! Wow, three years.

- Patch Oh So Close
Next Update by:
July 24th, 2006
The finishing touches are going on
the patch now. It should be out within a week or so. Thanks to everyone that
sent in issues and you descriptions. It always amazes me with how many moving
pieces there are to this game. And how many different paths you can go down. Add
mod-ability to the mix and you definitely have some data to patch up.
As I have been harping for sometime, the most exciting thing about this patch is
the fact that fans can now acquire a free compiler that will compile the AI
source code and be compatible with the game. There has been a lot more activity
lately regarding emails and such about the AI.
I wish I had more time to dedicate to another AI. I think I would make something
much simpler, something that would only use infantry, fighters, and transports
for quite a while. Unfortunately I really did not have that option for the AI
currently in the game. Players want to see varied units in combat, and they want
the AI to attempt to handle all sorts of game configurations. But the potential
is there for someone to write an AI for a very specific game type. You could
even write one expecting an all land or all sea scenario. I hope we see some
challenging ones. Trouble is, it takes technical skill to make one. I know some
people tried previously, and most of those attempts were to just get it to work
with the game using a freeware compiler…but hopefully now the free MS compiler
will encourage folks to try some more. Three separate people have already built
and run the AI with the compiler and the new game binaries.
There are some other adjustments, fixes, and a couple of additions to the game
as well. I will post the current fix list in the forum, and stay close to the
website in the next week for the actual release of the patch.
Ok, so when the patch is out, what's next? I got a letter from Fubster saying he
was back in the game, after a two year hiatus from playing due to a new baby. He
had a request for me to adjust something with the EDIE world builder, and I plan
to look into this. That may result in an EDIE patch. Also I have started
experimenting with the "next generation" interface design for Empire. My hope is
that I continue to mature this interface design this year, so that next year I
can proceed with creating updated versions of Empire. Those plans are way into
the future, but that is some of what I am looking at.
I played a game of EDEE today (testing the patch of course) and there are so
many elements I like about it. I am very pleased with how it came out, but I am
often very critical of it and can always see room for improvement. I hope this
next generation version will get a little closer to Empire perfection.
If there are aspects of the game you really like, I would love to hear about
them. Also, now that we have had a year and a half to play with the new unit
sets and such, what additional aspect of the game would you be looking for. As I
am currently in research and reflection mode, I would love to hear comments from
people playing the game…so don't hesitate to send me a mail.
And while I am at it, remember the greatest asset to a game like this is the
community, challenge to a game like this is spreading the word about it. If you
can,. Spread the word to your friends, and relatives. Your word of mouth
comments go a long way towards building up the community. I always say this but
it is true: almost every week I get another email from someone thrilled that
they have found this is going on. Even though you may leave it for a time, the
Empire series is truly a game that stays in your mind and is part of your life.

Next Update by:
June 26th, 2006
Not too much to report with this
report. The patch has been delayed somewhat, as I have arrived at the delivery
date for my other work. It is already starting to slow down there and I am able
to resume patch work. But I was not able to work on it for the past couple of
It has really been a pleasure working with my old Enron friends...and has been a
little strange with the whole trial thing wrapping up. It's fascinating how most
of your life you are just part of history, but here I feel like I was just a
little too close to it. I look on it in a positive way though, as if things have
not of turned they way they did, I doubt I ever would have gotten close to these
two games, which is something I had always longed to do. Certainly no regrets.
I am starting to get excited about the patch though, as this is hopefully the
version which will enable folks that desire to do so to build and produce new AI
modules for the game. I know several people have contacted me and they have
their own ideas about how to improve the AI. I hope we see some more challenging
opponents out there. I have already sent the updated source and a trial patch to
several people that are working with the AI. In the end I do not see a need for
a wide spread test, as the build does appear very stable, and the transition to
this compiler has not been very problematic. Still a few things to work on and
then I will do my best to get it out the door.
EDIE has now had its third birthday. Wow, it really seems like it has been much
longer than that. I am not sure why, but it has been a great part of what I have
been doing and thinking about for the past three years. I have begun to think of
a "new version" for the "Advanced" game of ED. I have come up with some
interface ideas. It definitely needs to be brought into the current millennium,
and I am hoping to do that next year. After that, I may set my sites on the
"Enhanced" game. I do wonder where this will be I three more years. It will be
interesting to find out, with some of the ideas I have in my head.
This has included looking into new graphics engines. I have definitely enjoyed
working with the Garage Games engine, and am considering that. I am also looking
into solutions which use Direct X 9. I have done some experimentation with a 3-D
type of interface, but I still feel it does not add much to the game, except
time to develop and money. I still believe the 2D for this game is much more
natural. I know some might disagree…or agree for that matter. Always interested
in hearing opinions on this,
Anyway, I'm still alive, and judging by the emails I have been getting and the
posts I have read, so is everyone else. Looking forward to this summer, and more
time thinking of what is yet to come. Soon it will be time to begin to turn that

- Ups and Downs
Next Update by:
May 29th, 2006
Well, even though a great deal of
development time is being spent in external contract work, it has still been a
busy month for Killer Bee Software. A month full of ups and downs, but overall a
I'll start with the downs. Without getting into details, I have been pursuing
the rights to another game since December, but apparently the acquisition will
not be possible. What is frustrating about this is it is not for the logical
reasons, like it being too expensive, but due to the fact that, in yet another
case, a game has been mishandled by a publisher and parts of the property have
been lost. I have seen this before. It is quite sad.
Now for the good news...The patch for EDEE is coming along nicely. This patch is
probably still a month out, and sometimes that means two months. What is special
about this patch is that it will be built with the latest version of the
Microsoft compiler, enabling others to use the free compiler Microsoft supplies
to make compatible DLLS for the AI. I am hoping this will stir some more
interest in experimentation with the AI.
The patch will also fix a few problems that have been exposed through various
games players have sent to me. Thanks to all of those that sent me stuff that
needs to be looked at.
In addition to bug fixes, there is a lot of additions that have been requested
by some on the forum as well as in mail, and I have looked over these. I do
believe two more throttles will be added to the game, to try to make it possible
for players to slow down unit movement in Empire if thy wish. Some more
additions may make it in. I am hesitant to make too many changes and additions,
as this can affect the stability of the current game. Something I don't want to
do in a negative way.
Because of the recompile, I may run a test group on it for a couple of weeks.
Keep an eye out for me asking for help on this.
As always, if you have questions or comments, feel free to send me a mail or
post in the forum. I will post another report by the en of May. Hopefully at
that time we will be close to patch time.

- I remember that Java stuff
Next Update by:
April 24th, 2006
I am now about two weeks into my development contract with a "financial firm",
and I am actually glad I am doing it. The work is in Java, which is something I
have not been able to work with in the past three years. The language has
actually matured quite well, and so have the tools for it. I am very impressed
with the 'eclipse' editor, which can be found at
www.eclipse.org. A very nice IDE for Java.
Speaking of IDE's, I think in the immediate future I will be upgrading my
compiler to ,net 2005. It is very disappointing to have a compiler that is only
four years old and is now out of date, but that seems to be the way Microsoft
has deemed it to be. I believe the problems with the AI DLL building issues we
have been having are due to incompatibilities between the libraries built with
my compiler, and the 7.1 and this 8.0 compiler. In the past I have had trouble
compiling with gcc as well. But if I go with the version 8 Microsoft compiler,
there is a freely available version of it open to the "hobbiest", which would be
anyone wanting to play with the AI code in my opinion. So this would be an
opportunity to get the AI code in front of more people, and I think the Unit
Database guys are really wanting this to happen, as specialized AI's are needed.
When I do this, I will most likely fire up some of the old beta team to give the
newly compiled version a spin. So if you have tested for me before, don't be
surprised if you hear from me very soon.
I do want to thank Andrew Peiman, a.k.a. breaker from Salient games for his help
and patience on this issue. He has contributed a great deal to the Empire cause,
including his website at
www.salientgames.com . He is also willing to host the contributions of
others on his site. I know this community is not the most talkative, but you
should check out what he has done.
Back to my contact work, as I mentioned I am glad I am doing it. Java is a good
reason. The paycheck is a good one as well. But I am finding that it is allowing
me to focus on the larger picture for Empire, TPG, and Killer Bee in general.
Since I am basically a one man show most of the time, I think it's good to
retake my perspective. I certainly want KBS to continue, and it will, and I know
in a few months I will have my next development steps plotted out.
I will now put out a tease in that there should be some sort of announcement
about Empire and Perfect General soon. I don't think it will be too exciting for
those that already have the game, but I think I will be getting some sorely
needed help in the marketing realm soon, and that will help increase the base of
users and move us towards critical mass.
I will say that I have begun actively working on the next patch, which will be
4.007 for the Enhanced version of Empire. It will hopefully include this
compiler upgrade, as well as several fixes that folks have been sending me
issues about. I had originally thought that I would wait till June, but the
compiler issue itself is big enough to accelerate that, and I decided I might as
well move a patch along with it.
So there actually is a great deal shaking for not doing too much development at
the moment. I am keeping an eye on the forum, so if you have any questions or
comments, please drop by. Also, don't forget to spread the word to your
potential Empire friends, as this keeps the game going. And share your maps,
units, and other stuff with all of us in the forums to help keep the community
February 28th, 2006 - A
Change Of Pace
Next Update by:
March 27th, 2006
With February being a short month, I got my scheduling messed up, so this report
is on a Tuesday. For some reason I thought the end of the month was on a Monday,
and that yesterday was Sunday. But I am back to real time now.
The EDEE patch has been out a bit and there are no major problems with it.
Thanks to those of you that discover issues and send them to me. Nothing
critical has come up yet for me to schedule a patch in the near future. If
things continue like this, then I would suspect it will be early summer before
we see another patch.
I released two "Interface Modifications" to the very popular massive online game
"World of Warcraft". This game is currently considered the state of the art in
this genre. I do play this occasionally, but have never really been into
"grinding" online games. WoW, as it is called, does offer some other choices
though, and I always find myself gravitating towards the auction house for some
reason. (no grind) So one of the mods is an auction mod, which allows me to
follow my style of bulk buying and selling.
I also enjoy the warrior class, as warriors have some decent combat choices in
the game. I made a mod to allow a player to switch between several weapon sets.
It's pretty simple, but it taught me a lot about how the interface works.
Hopefully I can take some lessons learned from it and apply them to my next
I had mentioned in the previous report that things were a little "uncertain".
They have become a little clearer, as there will be a change of pace here. I
have been offered a contract to work on a financial system with some folks I
previously worked for. I am flattered that they approached me and expressed a
need. This is a good time to do this, as I mentioned I did not want to do
anything with the Empire series just yet. So for the next six months there will
not be any new development work here most likely. This in no way means there
will not be support for the game or a patch. I will still be receiving mail and
hitting my boards and looking into issues.
I also see it as an opportunity to get any from the game so that I can take a
fresh look at it down the road. Since I will not be working within my
development cycle, I will probably also get a little more sleep. ;>
There is another game that I am currently looking into, but as with many others,
the web woven around it is so tangled I may never be able to get to it. I could
right a book on the history of some great computer games, and how they have been
cast out into a condition where they can never be rebuilt again. It is truly sad
and unfortunate. This industry often seems to lack appreciation for the
individual product produced.
But fortunately for us, Empire is a different story. It has an unprecedented 30+
year history, only three of which are with me. I intend to work with it for
quite a bit longer.
So even though development will not be taking place for a while here, I do
intend on maintaining this report every month. I will even be on time! So watch
for the next one at the end of March. And you never know what may happen....
January 30th, 2006 - What
Will Come Next?
Next Update by:
February 28th, 2006
A new year brings a new status report. I always find these very interesting to
read after they have been retired. I have found them a very good exercise, both
to keep things at KBS moving, and to make sure I update folks on my progress so
that they know there is a heart beat there.
I do often update them late in the day, and sometimes my
mind is a little foggy (like now), but generally I think they give a good sense
of where things are going.
At this point in time, in the immediate future there will
be a patch release for EDEE. It should be out this week. My 98 test box has
finally gone completely belly up, but I believe I will be able to work around
that. This patch will ad a few things, based on some requests that were made
from the ED users group around November. I was not able to change/add all of the
things that were requested, but quite a few were added. I believe I posted a
list of most of them in the support section of the forum.
It has been disappointing to discover that the VC++ 8
compiler, which is free for you to play with, will not properly run DLLs for the
game. I built the game with the 7.0 compiler and am not ready to move up yet.
Perhaps towards the middle or the end of the year this will occur. I looked at
the history of Microsoft Compilers over major version numbers and have
discovered that distributing statically linked libs from a previous version
generally always cause problems. So the compatibility with VC8 will not be in at
So the patch is the here and now. What about the future?
I am uncertain about what will happen for the future.
There are many paths that I am exploring and have not decided on the best course
of action. I am currently looking into an opportunity, and if it arrives, there
will be some interesting news coming from this site. This will be different from
the Empire or Perfect General series. It is unclear if this will be resolved
this month or not. We shall have to wait and see. If it happens, it will be
I have written designs for two Empire variants, but I have
not been satisfied that now is the time to make these yet. One deals with outer
space conquest, the other with fantasy realms. I am hesitant to do these at
this time, for I do not wish to suffer from “sequel-itis” and burn Empire out.
However, next year will be the 5th year for
EDIE, and I am considering a remake of that a year from now. I am currently
continuing the evaluation of the Garage Games engine in order to give MAC
portability, and if this evaluation goes well, we could see a redo of EDIE at
some point. I did experiment, again with the Garage Games Engine, with a 3-D
display and atmosphere, but I have not been satisfied with results as far as
playing the game. For some reason I personally enjoy the “top-view” perspective
for the game, and am not convinced such a view needs to be changed. Regardless
of the look, I feel that as a rule set, EDIE needs to be preserved. I would like
to take some lessons learned with EDEE and put them into a new 3.x version at
The Perfect General is also wanting a re-do, and there is
an advanced design for it. But at this point in time I have not decided if this
is necessary this year.
So I certainly am not prepared to say what really may come
next in regards to software from me. I have spent some time researching and
experimenting…I may use this time as an opportunity to return to real life work
for a short bit and build up the KBS coffers somewhat. If I ever made such a
decision, it would be for a brief time, and though development would be slower,
I still would support the games as I have in the past. I have seen other game
developers disappear and not really support their games, and I assure you this
will not happen here. I love these games too much. Hopefully I have already
given that impression.
So nothing too definitive to report on at this time.
Possibly at the end of next month there may be more info. Time will tell. In the
short term, keep looking for the patch which should be out this week.
