Re: Record maybe ?

Very good!

I'll be working on a new version of Windows Conquest soon and I'll try and get it on Steam and the Windows Store. Hopefully that'll get more people playing again and there'll be regular network games again. Maybe you'll find some good challenges there!

Re: Slay for Windows Phone

Right now I'm working on porting iOS Firefight back into Windows. I'm using SDL which is a cross-platform library so I should be able to use the same code and build the app on to all the major devices. Once I've got Firefight working I'll go through the other games and give them the same treatment. ...

Re: Does the multiplayer still work?

Multiplayer still works and up to 6 people can play at once. Normally I have an old computer set up running a "public server" but you can always set up your own computer to server public or private games.

Re: Game progress transfer from one phone to another phone

Sorry but I don't think that's possible at the moment but it's something I'll try and get added in the future.

Re: Slay not working on iOS 9

Sorry about that. I think it was to do with the new pressure sensitive screens on the newer iPhones. Should have been fixed in an update since though!

Re: Big "thank you" Sean. Is there a list of records?

At the moment there's no way of comparing scores but that would be a neat feature and something I could try and add in the future. I'm planning on refreshing all of my Windows games soon and getting them on the Windows AppStore. Have you tried selecting one of the themes from the Options menu? And a...

Re: Price per unit and Palm grow

Pine trees grow on one of your hexagons at the beginning of your turn, if that hexagon has two or more pine trees next to it. Palm trees grow on hexagons next to the sea if one or more palm trees are next to them. Gravestones turn into trees on the next turn. I like the idea of being able to sync yo...

Re: Conquest for Android

I had a go at Android programming last year but I found it would be a nightmare to port my Objective C to Java. I'm waiting on Google bringing out better tools for using C++ with Android and a decent book would be nice too. Looks like one is out on Amazon soon so hopefully I'll get started when I ge...

Re: Running on ipad2

The game will run exactly the same on any iPad so that's shouldn't be the problem. For an enemy piece to be drawn on the screen one of your pieces has to currently have a line of sight to it and must have "spotted" it too. If all of your troops are hiding behind a wall and nobody is looking over the...

Re: Firefight for iPad (April 2013)

I'll do some more work on improving tank AI but they'll always sometimes make what seems like strange decisions as they can't see everything that the player sees and the men inside may be terrified! I'm working on adding networking right now. I'll probably add an Eastern front set of maps but it wil...

Re: Android

Sorry the Android port is taking longer than I thought! I had a play with Android programming using Java but it'd be a huge amount of work to port my iOS Objective C code to Java, and difficult to keep the two versions synced. I'm still waiting for Google to make it easy for us to use C++ and for so...

Re: New campaign

I am planning on adding Eastern front maps and units to iOS soon but it will be a huge amount of work.

Right now though I am working on adding networking to iOS Firefight and later in the year I'll port this new version of Firefight back into Windows.

Re: Player versus player

I'm working on adding networking to the iOS version right this minute!

I'm also planning on porting the iOS version back into Windows later this year (it's considerably better) and that will have the networking in it too.

Re: Support for native resolution?

I've not done any work on my Windows games for years as I've been concentrating on iOS games. But, I'm planning on getting all of the games onto the Windows AppStore this year so I'll look into all the bugs that have crept in over the years with new versions of Windows when I do that.
