Default Poll: Should a printed/boxed version of MNW be released?

This poll is born after the discussion of those gentlemen on another thread...


https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/sho...&postcount=139


and our response...


https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/sho...&postcount=141


which explains a few things regarding a printed/boxed version of MNW and how it could become a reality.


Quote:
Since we are old timers like others in this forum, seeing MNW on a printed version "even a limited one" is like a dream to come true. Getting a hard copy in hand and waiting to check out the contents inside it was the real magic, even the printed label of the floppies was cool to see.

But believe it or not, the decision to a printable version of MNW means a delay in the release from 1 to 6 months depending on various reasons (the size of the book is one of the many).
Furthermore, the publisher might take the initiative to create a printed limited edition after release only if he is absolutely sure that a specific amount of copies are sold for sure else the initiative won't be profitable to him.

Keep in mind that this poll will be active for one month.


Cheers!

I would be willing to wait for a physical copy plus a book.



For starters, I don't use Steam or MP. I have no problems with them, it just isn't what I do.

I like the idea of having software on a physical medium. It makes it simple in case I run into hardware issues, I upgrade parts, or buy an all new system. Its one less thing to find online.

A book would be a great idea. I would rather learn about in-game procedures and tactics at my leisure rather than just before calling "Weapons free!".

Kinda late to the party but I agree. Definitely would buy a printed cope especially if it comes with some extras.

I'm late.
A box is not needed.

But a manual that includes the details and overviews needed, designed to be printer-friendly, and not, as is the vogue today, just a dozen text files and player lists scattered all over the web and forums - that is a MUST.
I do not even demand a printed manual anymore, those days seem to be gone. But a manual pdf-file worth the name that includes it all and could, if need be, printed without getting a greyish mess of light grey text on ink-dripping dark background pages.
Not implying you planned to mess it up this way! I am just about many bad experiences I had with lacking of ill-done pdf-manuals over the past two decades. Just a comelete manual file, black letters on white background, and screenshot illustrations where need be that can be decyphered if printed out.
