    Goodbye "card" To East

    Looks like there were no takers on Ebay then! Not surprised really as the advert was poor and didn't really tell you much, it didn't look very professional either!!

    Goodbye "card" To East

    Good luck with your new project East. It is a tragic end for Enigma's potential, but at least you did give the naval enthusiasts one of the most exciting and modern games on the market. Cannot believe I will never see that upgraded Flower Class Corvette floating on my monitor. Can you at least give us some final screens of the Flower in her latest stage of development from all angles and close up ? Good luck!

    River Plate

    Yup, watched it. Interesting, but nothing new in there really that we didn't know about. There were a lot of rumours last year that Graf Spee was going to be raised, but nothing was mentioned in the programme so hopefully they changed their minds.

    Iron Parrot Awards

    I was surprised not to see the Pirates of the Caribbean community on there. They totally transformed the original locked and rather lackluster campaign into an open-ended campaign with many new storylines to follow. Add to that the many excellent 3d models added and it ended up a superb game by the time the 12.1 mod was released with some truly spectacular sea battles.

    Engine Refactoring

    Strange announcing a new engine for a naval warfare game with pics of a plane - personally I think I would have waited with that announcement until a ship was done If I want pretty planes I will fly IL2, show me the ships!

    Pc Gameworld Review

    Just a very poor reviewer I think - all that stuff about playing battleships in the bath and firing a turd just summed up this guy for me - one big a**hole !

    Favorite Ride?

    Corvette The perfect sub hunter as it turns quickly after a pass on a sub and has the advantage of hedgehog too.

    Folder C:/erttemp - Ok To Delete?

    I noticed that after I had installed ERT Gold the 242 mb folder C:/ertTemp has appeared. As it is named as a temp file I assume it is just full of redundant installation files and can be deleted from the C drive - is this correct ??

    Any News Yet On Multiplayer ?

    Never realised Pointsoft had gone bust also Sounds like tough days ahead East - maybe you should take up playing the lottery - or maybe we should all form the Enigma lottery syndicate
  14. This site has been offline for ages now - is it going to be resurrected or is it staying offline due to no interest/activity ??

    Just to say many thanks for this timetraveller It will be a great tool for those of us less gifted with script writing for missions. Will give it a thorough testing over the next couple of days Cheers
