What kind of special permission even is this?? What's next, will you ask them permission to clean their shoes?? Just upload whatever material and promote the game

The game looks pretty good, I wonder why it was cancelled.
I assume because the huge effort required to put all the scenarios in history mode together? or maybe some technical blockers not obvious in the beta.

Cancelling a project can have many reasons but most of the time it is because of finding out that it takes a lot more time than you anticipated. Constructing the engine takes 2 months and developing a good alpha about half a year and then all kinds of problems kick in. Motivation decreases slowly. Teammembers leave the team or stop contributing. You run into technical issues nobody wants to solve and within years many things happen. Very complex games with high quality content are therefore rarely finished. To create something commercially in such scales does not pay off and thus releases of complexity are in the hands of volunteers. It takes many years of devotion and a iron will to finish behemots. It is a quest and venture that can break minds.

Personally, the only thing that I would be very uncomfortable with, developing a game like this, would be the AI of the enemy troops ...

For me, an MSX2 version of International Karate + would be so nice !

It's good manners to ask before you take what doesn't belong to you. That's how good cooperation works, don't you think?

Yes, International Karate. Better IK+! The last Ninja would be very nice too. Winter Games for MSX 2? Wizball! I don`t know if somebody named a game before. This Thread is too long! Wink

We've got permission, not only for cleaning his shoes Tongue

I've uploaded them in the download section under Games -> simulation

Alpha 3 is best playable... you need to press space bar for creating units...

Also I've found another Beta version wich works a little better and you're able to produce units Cool
