I tried registering on their forum, got a confirmation mail, clicked on it, could log in, but euhm, when i try to post, i get a message back that i need to login or smth. So that's why I was asking you to ask them for me.
Btw, can't remember where i read it, but RUKA General, does he work with GSC now?
Are you saying that we can play online simply by knowing that the other player has the same setup?
Yes, thats exactly what i said. However, i was talking about my mod cause i was replying to your first question in this thread. For the patch its slightly different (i presume that's what your aiming at with your question), because they have a new engine in the patch. So by releasing just the file's will not enable you to play with people who have the russian patch.
Releasing the translated file's, without that engine on the 1.3 version will leave it to a 1.3 with updated 1.4 file's. The result is that only people who have those translated file's will be able to play with you.(its actually more then just translated file's, there's also fixed md file s in it and various others).
The result will be mostlikely that when your on the 1.3 server with those file's in your game, other people will join your game ( cause they can, it will say your game is a 1.3 game) but on starting it will generate synch errors because they are on the original 1.3
I'm highly against releasing just the translated file's without the proper updated engine for 1.4. It will create confusion if you ask me, people will not understand why they have synchronisation errors if they play with people without those files, etc....you will end up explaining the story over and over again to people who will complain about it.
Daddio, what I suggest at this point is this:
Remember i wrote on the internal forum we should write GSC about it and ask with gentle persuasion to fix the 1.4 engine so it plays on the english versions. Preferably signed by cdv people, just to add more weight to the request. But, nobody of cdv replied to that suggestion i made, so can't say I'm too happy bout it, they coulda have replied just with, no sorry, don't think we will do that or smth along those lines.
I'v been waiting a bit to send gsc a mail, wanted to group up my questions to them first, instead of bothering them every month with a mail, but i guess it's time for a mail.
I'll make a draft and ask cdv if they will support the request. If they don't , i'll just send it in my own name this week.
Btw Daddio, been experimenting a bit, you think it would be nice to have a 'general unit' which acts as a 'command center'? If your formations break and the soldiers start running like mad around, instead of going to your base the other side of the map and causing lag, how bout having a general near your army, so the soldiers return to his vicinity and reduce lag? I positive sides to it, but it may unbalance the game a bit aswell. Not sure, your opinion pls.
Got a thousand-and-one more ideas and questions but I'll stick to this for now.
