Hiyas, waiting for Gogamer.com to start shipping out the game. But would certainly be interested in clan/team play.

I would be interested as well Panzer Mk VI for me ...and I really am interested in this genre...however am still deciding whether to download as the over all response to the sim in the Lighthouse Forums has not been positive to say the least and there seems to be very little feedback from the Dev Team or Publisher concerning all the apparent issues.

Cheers and have a great day

Currently best advise probably is to wait with buying and see wether they move within a reasonable time or not. but there is not much reason to be optimistic.

There is a second chance with Steel Fury. A chance from that chance is a mentioned successor to Steel Fury which then will feature MP as well. It is a reasonable assumption, though, that the fate of the successor will depend on how the predecessor performs in sales - and that will depend on it's quality.

And SBP always is a third option of apparently superior quality anyway. And it has MP as well - functional, and stable, and being a blast, they say.

Default Not giving up on this one, BUT...

I had my order with gogamer changed from this title to Steel Fury.

Buzz is Steel Fury will be upgraded in one way or another to include multi-player.

As for WW2 tvt I can't see the point in buying the game if the multiplayer is SNAFU. That's the only reason I was buying it in the first place. I'd be more motivated to jump in with my eyes closed if the developers would at least make a statement about addressing the problems.

If they fix it, I'll buy it, my interest isn't completely dead. But without multiplayer its kind of pointless.

Not bad advise. Not sure myself if I should purchase now or wait a little while for Steel Fury.

Probably not, nobody mentioned that. but it was mentioned that the team considers a steel Fury 2 which then will inlcude MP - if the first Steel Fury being released in some days justifies that project. I have read that in their forum. No matter how, we speak not about months but 1-3 years in time, I think. So, if MP is a must for you, SBP is the path to go as long as you do not want to wait that long.

Why preordering Steel Fury anyway? Just wait for the release and then check the customer'S feedback - and then order it if you want. Amazon sends it to you just the other day. Preordering if not being sure about what to expect, is nothing but a gamble. That way, low-quality developers get encouraged - since their stuff sells despite low quality. as long as they must not fight for customers, most of them will not improve - why should they make their life difficult if they get their gold in easier ways as well?

Well, as someone else already stated, I'm a WW2 history enthusiast. My interest in that time period even had me joining the Marines as a young man.
Anyway, I had TVT pre-ordered through gogamer because, as someone else has stated, there isn't much else out there for new WW2 tank sims. I'm not too concerned with Steel Fury because it's not getting poor feed back from those who already have it. The reviews are good, as were the reviews for TVT, but there isn't any multiplayer to offset those good reviews. Afterall, TVT was given a good review until people tried to connect with more than one other player.:rotfl: And even now you can find someone giving it a good word over on the TVT forum. If they stay in single player mode.

So I suppose I'll wait and see what happens with TVT and get my kicks on steel beast (almost said route 66). Just d/led the demo of COD World at War so that will hold me over for awhile.

As for Amazon, I don't do internet type shopping. I like to be able to send a check in. And I think GOgamer is the only distributor in the states for these two titles. EB has never listed them.

Default I bit the bullet and Downloaded form Gamersgate

It took about an hour and a half to DL, comes with PDF Manual and a Gamespy Patch for MP.....and it works surprised the crap out of me; especially with all the negative threads....the sim works extremely well... I am running a Core 2 Quad with 4 Gig Ram with two 1 Gig Nvidia GTX 260's in SLI configuration...VISTA OS..... I did not have to add extra DLL Files. It does ask if I want to run FFDshow (I do not know what that is) but I run that....and the game runs just fine.... on to try the editor and see if I can hook up with some one for MP.

Is this thread still alive? Else it gets moved into the TvT Resources.
