    Hello Everyone

    We like to welcome the Panther Game team to the LnL family. I'll let the guys from Panther Games tell you what is coming soon.

    Hi everyone. Yes Lock 'n' Load are our new publishers. We're excited to be working once again with David Heath who now heads up LNL Publishing. They will be publishing our Command Ops computer games plus re-releasing our original east front board game "Trial of Strength".

    I have just got back from a six week trip around North America. Before I left in August David Heath invited me to come and have a look at his new setup in Pueblo West Colorado and to have a quiet chat and beer. With such inducements I of course accepted his invite. After arriving in San Francisco in early September David rang me to see if I would agree to an interview by the media. It would be low key. I said "sure". By the time I arrived in Washington DC towards the end of September it had blown into a full scale event with I think 34 people attending. David, his family and staff put on a tremendous welcome when we arrived in early October. My wife and I really enjoyed our time there.

    We got to see LNL's new production facilities, meet with the staff, discuss marketing plans and do some interviews. I won't steal the thunder of the interviewers. The interviews should be out very soon. But I will add that I am impressed with the way LNL are doing business. David Heath is a people person and he has the knack for getting the best out of people. I am confident that this new business arrangement will bear great fruit.

    JeF,
    Foundation 1 - 3 are doing well except for that mule character. Foundation 4 kinda weak. Gave up after that.

    I'm good Jean Francois. Still recovering from six weeks on the road. And it always seems to happen that while you are away something goes off the rails. This time I arrived back to find the land line phones had packed it in. I can't really complain. The Panasonic phones had lasted six years, which for electronics is a good innings. I have been searching around for a system that I can connect to my smart phone so I don't have to maintain two contact lists. The technology is pretty new at the moment and there's mixed reviews on the phone apps that provide the connectivity. Apart from that though I'm looking forward to getting stuck back into the programming changes for Command Ops 2.

    It's nice to hear that CO2 is on track and to see new screenshots. :)

    Don't quite understand how this works. On the old forum it was pretty obvious where to post. Any advice greatly received.

    Regards

    Ok, what I mean is that there were a number of very well organised topics/threads.

    Regards

    Give us a bit of time Tim. I've only been back in the office two days. :)

    FYI Matrix will maintain the old Command Ops forum on their website as an archive for the foreseeable future. So that material is not lost.

    I'll cancel that google account over in Panthergames now, as I couldn't get it to stop buzzing my phone whenever anyone posted there.

    All sounds exciting, Dave. CO2 screenshots? Where? I don't see anything. Hope this turns out to be fruitful for Command Ops.

    PS: Are there any sub headings? Can't find any. Like where to post AARs?

    Look under the Media heading.
    Not yet. I need to ask David Heath how to setup subForums.

    Congratulations on your new publisher Dave.
    Or should I be saying that to Dave Heath, on scooping up the best computer war-game ever made? ;)
    Actually congratulations to you both, I hope you have a lot of success together.

    Had a crash recently, Dave. Preceded by this kind of thing - every time an arty unit finished a bombard I get a long list of identical messages telling me this - sometimes as many as 15 in a row, immediately. Ring any bells?
