RE: Just to say Hi :)
Welcome back.   Smile

CS is still going, though not as strong as in years past. Matrix is working on the Viet Nam series which should be a fantastic add for those interested in that period and there's still a group playing the Middle East version, though I haven't seen any recent game results. It's also a good series if you're interested. Takes a lot of getting used too, due to the lethality of the weapons and the huge time span.

Check out the 2018 ladder if you want to see who's still playing: http://www.theblitz.org/ladders/b-11.htm...d=2&page=1

Change the year in the url to see an earlier year's ladder if you're curious.

Don't be a stranger!

Hello Eddie,

You are sorely missed. Respect4
As you did, players move on. Which is probably symptomatic of what is happening to CS. But, many are still playing. I am not so sure, as Dave is, that the new releases will pump up the base. But, we shall see. There is always hope? Angel

Those were the days. If I had the time I would do another, I'd 'give it a go'. The last two attempts did not go so well. Help5

I hope all is well with you?

I'd wait longer if they were making Inf types men instead of strength points.  :)

On the coding and data side, this is far more difficult that one would think.

It's been a wishlist item of mine for a long time, but that is still a distant wish list item.

Just a heads up, but if you have the old talonsoft version it won't work anymore, you'll need the one from Matrix Games. Looks like it's on sale, only 10 bucks: http://www.matrixgames.com/store/product.asp?gid=318

Hey Raven / Eddie - really great to see you pop-up here man! I hope life has been treating you well my friend! Pretty slow go around here these days - but we still have some great guys developing scenarios for us to play which is awesome!

If your up to getting your feet wet again - man drop me a line at: t34_buster at hotmail dot com  -  would love to battle again with you!

All my best to you Eddie!

RE: Just to say Hi :)
Eddie,
So sorry to hear about your health issue.
I lost my sister this past February and one of her health complications was a late diagnosis of MS.

As Dave said, you will need a new Matrix copy unless you already have it.
And, yes, all tourneys were completed. Helmet Smile

If you do get the desire to play again send me a file? I'll play you.
I never thought you played badly. Pirate Duel2
