I would just like to re-iterate that I'm not against getting fresh blood into these forums. Just that I think selective- would beat mass-marketing ;p

I do not think that we need extra marketing by now. Imho a project that's slowly getting bigger over time is healthier than a project that has been hyped over and over again.

well i think i have been moderately successful especially since this seems to be nearly just a few people helping me :( but i have had about a half a dozen confirmed dl (that means actual must be much higher) and several people wanting me to play them i accepted 2 offers. Also i have added a ton of stuff to moddb and it went from around rank 300 of 708 to 16 of 708 in visit. I posted on the forums there also the steam community is going incredibly good with 128 members at time of post several people saying they like it matching up games and helping build up warzone 2100 online community just like pumpkin did years ago. I still need other strategy game or sites that would have people with similar interest in warzone or former warzone players preferred so i can post about warzone 2100 there.

other thing i duel boot xp pro and ubuntu and it seems warzone 2100 is using a outdated trunk version needs to be updated

one other last thing i was browsing over warzones official site news archives and found that not only was warzone going to have a follow up and also a expansion pack it was obviously there flagship project and would of been a great series that could of been going on to this day (note i already new that warzone had an expansion pack in works wz2120 but never new this to be this expansive)

While I am not really against publicity, I just hope it brings in more people that can help with the project, and not just game players. While game players are good for testing things, most do not submit bug reports, or do anything but complain. :|
We need more programmers (to help with bugs, and add new stuff) artist to make the (much needed) new gfx, perhaps some sound guys to enhance some stuff, and add music tracks... :3

The warzone version in ubuntu's repo is ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooold! Very, Very old. You would need to make it yourself if you want the latest version, or beta 4.

well i could target programmers they have help wanted and recruitment fourms on moddb is there any other site you could tell me about also what about other open source project we could ask around there if we could help each other out and promote each other share work


its alright about the ubunutu thing i hardly use it i personally think windows xp is still years ahead of linux but just thought it would be cool to have an updated version and that there is several cool games i can play on linux which is showing it is slowly becalming more attractive os to use for everone.

You didn't see anything. Go ahead.

well i could see if i could get warzone 2100 on http://www.download.com as currently all there is on wz is this http://www.download.com/3120-20_4-0.htm ... one%202100
also the is a open source game i tried called glest i will try to mention wz there maybe We could work to gether with open source games to help promote and dev each other as it seems free strategy games have a hard time getting a strong online base

edit: i would like if someone else could try to upload there as idk what im doing on there

edit 2: there seems to be alot of games based off the ta-spring engine so i will see what i can do about ta and all the other games.
on another note it wold be cool to see non warzone 2100 games using the warzone engine so maby we could try to help push it also

Wow coolkid, you sure do get around. :)

Nice work.

As for linux vs windows... well, that is a nice can of worms ;) You forgot to mention macs, then it would have been complete. :D
