    Anyone planning on trying the PC version?

    Is anyone planning on trying the computerized version once it becomes available from Matrix Games?

    I will probably fold and buy it at some point. WiF is just too big to play in person (especially if you want to do the world), so playing on the computer is ideal. Matrix makes good stuff in general, so it should be pretty close to the game.

    I think that the better question would be "why would you not want to try the PC version?". A true boardgamer may have these points:

    1. They prefer the board because they can see the entire board at once.
    2. They prefer the human contact, sitting across from their opponent while playing.
    3. They actually prefer to handle all the functions of the game manually for whatever reasons.

    But otherwise, what WiFfer isn't going to want to at least investigate the PC version?

    I'll probably buy it.

    Why?

    Because HoI sucks donkey wang.

    GGWaW is a suped up Axis and Allies not a grognard wargame.

    SC is simply fun, but not really what I wanted it to be ie closer to A3R

    And that basically means there really isn't anything else to fill the need for global grand strategy that was designed INTENTIONALLY as a real wargamers wargame.

    That, and I don't really have the interest to make the effort to make the space available to play my boardgame copy at this time. Too many other hobbies want that space.

    Real men play A3R on their computers.

    The only arguement I have with that Gary, is I really prefer A3R over the version of the game they used for the PC port.

    That's not the PC port, and it's A3R, not 3R4 (though you can play that version as well). That's the VASSAL module.

    I've decided to hold out on WiF until the Matrix Games PC game is released, and for all the same reasons as outlined earlier in the thread.

    It's just too tough to find a local group of 3-4 other committed wargamers who can meet weekly to play FtF enough to complete a full campaign. Plus the whole issue of so much required table space, and it just makes so much sense to play a PC version of this game.

    I just hope this game will do the following:

    1) Support multiple monitors with plenty of use of independent windows.

    2) Allow for Days of Decision III to be added as a first "expansion pack".

    Is this the mod for the Avalanche Press version?

    No, I had started to work on that but dropped it after not gaining any support from AP (no surprise there). That is from the mod that has been done by someone else and has been posted for quite some time, it's really well done:

    VASSAL- A3R/3R4 (it has both games rolled into one)
