I'm a long time player and fan of warzone 2100. I read all of this and have to say get the work out so old warzone 2100 player will come back and try it will help. How to do that is the matter. MY SPACE my help. but the DL issue yall have had my drive old fans away. It took me 3 day to get the beta 4 DL. now with that said I'm on a T3 connection. It onlt DL at 12 KB a sec. and i got drop 100+ time trying to DL it.

now I'm a die hard fan and so i got it done. and I'm not complaining. By all mean it was worth it. beta 4 and 2.0.10 are kick ass.I love what yall have done to the game.

So fixing the DL problem would help bring and keep old members coming back like me and my buddy shadowkingjr. We play 25 network games to too alone. :D xD . Keep up the good work and I'm just letting yall know about the down issue. i will add a link to the wz2100.net sit on all my websites to try to bring back some old members.

you can help me revive warzone

also it seems the help wanted post on moddb has helped get a increased number of people coming some of them ex warzone :)

but... it seams many of the people that come are having a lot of trouble figuring out ware to start or how to do it. It seams that everyone is being friendly but i think we need to do more work making modding etc more noob friendly. I dont want any of the people we get here to get scared off i think we are doing good but need to do more.

any ideals on ways to help buildup the online community..

I was thinking if we could help other open source liberated strategy games like post on there forums to come play on warzone (also may be able to get dev work)

organize tournament days could be a good start to buildup and also maybe a better ingame communicator.

i sent the word over to spring:1944 project to come check us out http://spring1944.com/s44/
its is a upcoming open source rts based on one of the best open rts engines ta:spring
maybe we could help each other out open source rts have a similar user base so it could help all of the groups with players coders assets etc.

Spring has a much more advanced rendering engine. Compared to that, warzone would be pretty disappointing.

true but the engine is very different and options and variety are good. open source friendly completion is good also. But it just a ideal even if we could just get a few project going and down the road get a team of people to add support for advanced features like bump mapping dx9-10 open gl reflective water terrain blending etc. There is already many game play features that are unique even tho the graphics arnt up to par.

I *think* we are waiting for a 'stable' release, so a beta release don't cut it.

ok ic makes sence but we really need a publicity push a few weeks for a final release like make shure most sites are updated get on news sites. So we can get people playing online and some recent reviews mark warzone done far saying development is ever slowing down due to lack of devs. which we would get players and devs if we pushed the games release.

I also think the FMV release will make a bigger splash... and while a alpha is out, I don't know the ETA for a real 'release' for that.
