The communication problem with Kickstarter has been resolved. Out of desperation I re-registered as a complete newbie and then everything worked properly. Kickstarter even recognized my backing of this project. Considering I had been getting Eric’s email updates this seems strange but it worked. It looks like some other backers may have had the same experience.
A big shout out to GEN MANSTEIN for offering to help! Thankfully it is resolved and good to go.
As to the scope, either version would be essentially strategic. A central Europe setting would just be a bigger map of Germany and peripheral countries. Most of the fighting would be in West Germany and neighboring countries, so the map would segment central Europe into the same number of spaces as the other alternative, but for that reason the game would approach more of an operational level, you’re right.
That said, the polling seems clear that people want the other version, so that may answer that!
I received some good advice here on A&A.org that I should remind anyone that’s interested that The War in Vietnam has been funded and WILL be made. If you’d like to make sure you get a copy, the kickstarter campaign is going to run for another few days only (ends Saturday).
As I say, the game is funded and is going to be produced, but kickstarter is the only chance to pledge for a copy if you want one. Here is the link:
@crsluggo Why would you still defend him, in any event. You still don’t know what the product is, there are only limited ways to make something for a certain amount of money and time–much less a quality product. He may still deliver; what is delivered in that case is the question. I don’t know what will or will not happen, but he has my money–and I was a fool to give it to him. Whatever process has taken place, if it produces a quality game with the minis promised and playable rules, I’ll eat my hat.
He’s an endless stream of talk. If that generates work and money from thin air and beyond all reasonable explanations, it wont be the first time–and like I said–I dont predict the future only the past.
