Ok, this is what we call a ‘soft release’, in that I’m announcing it here quietly so I can trap any problems with the order process or the installer etc. But basically the game is now on sale. Hurrah! I am sooooooo tired…
you can click the update button (on the on-line screen) and check for a new version, although there inst one yet. when there is, the same download link will download a newer version.
The only problem I’m aware of is a demo-only thing. There is a suggestion for improvement which I plan to implement (restricted power stuff), but I’ll see if there are other fixes or suggestions first before finalising the patch.
Not sure I’m keen on the activation of the game. Although I guess you have to do that due to there being no CD/DVD to check. What if I need to reinstall XP on move to a new PC, will I need to activate again? What if, for whatever reason, you stopped supporting the game, Positech Games shut down and you disappeared, would we still be able to activate the game online?
Even after all these years I can still play the game I love, Capitalism 2. I’m sure if it needed activation I wouldn’t be able to play it anymore as it’s no long supported.
I’ve been around 10 years and am not going anywhere. You need to activate once on any machine you want to play it on. I may release a patch in the future that removes it, but I’m afraid piracy is just too rampant not to do some protection for new games. I have already seen people asking for cracks for the game, and its not even out a week yet ;(.
LOL /morbid. Why don’t we just have it so cliffski leaves the copyrights to his games to the GPL so we can do whatever we want with them if he has an untimely demise. Hey Cliff you like how we’re talking about your death???
