    Does anyone know if DA is still alive?

    It looks like HPS did release a patch to make the game Vista compliant some time ago, but there haven't been any new scenarios, maps, or updates that I'm aware of. Does anyone know if Jim Lunsford is planning to release any additional content or updates for DA?

    I think the status is "yes" but due to other commitments it is not being working on actively at this time (this time == years timeframe).

    There is a mailing list for DA where people know more details.

    Re: Does anyone know if DA is still alive?

    I checked the Yahoo mailing list and it appears the last post to that was in August of 2008. In fact, there were only 20 messages total in all of 2008.

    I had to re-subscribe to that group as I've changed emails some years ago, and the DA group is currently set to hidden status on Yahoo Groups, so the messages are not visible to the public. Also, the group is set so that new subscriptions have to be approved by the group owner, and so far there has been no movement on that. I'm not sure if Jim is the "owner" of the DA group or not.

    Yahoo groups suck royal rotten donkey balls anyway.

    I thought it was a mailing list but I guess I actually got mail from the group.

    Per my post on the other thread, Jim does have a new version, just a matter of him finding the time to bring it all together to get it released. He does plan to do that though.

    Rich:
    Is Jim any closer to releasing the new version?

    Haven't heard from him in quiet some time, so can't give an update - sorry.

    Is Jim still associated with HPS? If so, can he be asked?

    From Jim Lunsford:

    "Please respond that 1. HPS is still my publisher, 2. That DA is still alive, 3. That we will be releasing FF and FIB through HPS within the next few months, and 4. Refer them to the Decisive-Point website if they are intersted in what I have been doing."

    FF = Future Force
    FIB = Forward Into Battle

    Decisive-Point webpage can be accessed here:
