    RAH's office

    Due to Mark's new job with the government, the staff has been asked to pick up some of the slack.

    http://apolyton.net/forums/showthrea...2&pagenumber=1

    If you look at the top of the page, you'll see that I am now listed as a mod in this forum. I have not been a participant in this one so I am not familiar with all of you.

    In order to avoid my PM box being filled, I'd like to try to handle any requests or answer questions in this thread. Hopefully it will keep response time to a minimum and help keep me organized.

    My main office hours are M-F 7:00 a.m - 5:00 p.m. US central time. I am on at other times but not consistently.

    RAH
    Carry on.

    Actually I'm a big fan of this game already from the reports. We should get some of the civ 2 guys up here.

    Got any whole milk? Can you do latte?

    Hmmm, may take a bit more time than I anticipated.
    It's going to take some time to go through all the threads and get the general feel.

    of course the big question is how will deity cope with a game whch goes from 6000bc to modern times in an hour. That's normally 1 turn for him.

    I'll be the first to admit that I'm not familiar with the game. I'm sure I'll know considerably more about it after going through all these threads. I may have to get it. We'll see if it still sounds interesting after reading through.

    Well, if you want to get a good idea of what this game is about, you may want to browse through the fact sheet:

    http://apolyton.net/ron/factsheets/info.php

    But more importantly, you may want to listen to DanQ's interview with Brian Reynolds and/or read the related article:

    http://apolyton.net/ron/preview/part...l-generals.php

    And of course, if that genuinely raises your interest, there's always the demo:

    Good luck, rah. There are a lot of newbies around here, so try not to scare them too much.

    DanQ checks his PMs and E-mail whenever he has time to get to it. Experience tells me any pointing that I do will usually be ineffective.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Locutus is yet again fascinating in how helpful he is. Rah, bud, go read Yin's review of the game, and then run for the demo, screaming while the download bar increments.

    even with a cable broadband connection?

    Affording buying it does not present a problem.

    That was the case with me. All in all, a 200 MB download does take more than 2 minutes, doesn't it ? For me at least...

    Affording buying it does not present a problem.


    Well, go look down at the less lucky than you apolytoners for whom exactly that might be a problem .

    N/P, Rah.

    Solver,
    Hmmm, people have said many things about my helpfulness, but I don't think anyone ever called it fascinating...

    You don't happen to have any Vulcan blood in you, do you?

    Homunculus,
    I'm afraid I may have flooded Dan with email today, so it may be a while before he gets around to yours

    200 MB, yes, that will take awhile regardless. More of reason to just buy it.

    And No, not looking down at anybody. Just saying it won't take much of an excuse for me to buy it. Especially if some of the things I've been reading today are true.

    And how robust was the demo?

    25 minutes isn't too bad.

    Do you have a broadband connection?

    Haven't had opportunity to try it yet.

    As for the connection, my employers say its a T1 line... maybe it would've downloaded faster if I paused those other downloads
