    I play Mem44 on line. It is just like the card game that they have. I often ask why can't ARES get the Wings game on the computer like that. The MEM 44 game is a card based game so the Wings game would follow the same format. They have some free games you can play but you can also buy GOLD to play solo games or you can play against others. it would promote the game and be an income source.

    There's a new(er) computer game, Tabletop Simulator, that would work great for WoG, if a module was made for it.

    Didn't Dire Wolf have the official license for Digital WGF as of a year ago?

    And here's the Dire Wolf announcement from January 2019: https://www.direwolfdigital.com/news...-digital-life/

    If they're gonna keep dropping the ball, there was a guy here who had an app that while it wasn't as slick with pretty graphics it WAS a playable game, and Honza has a companion app--maybe you guys should recruit them and suggest they combine efforts, since Ares still owes us an app as a Giants Kickstarter stretch goal IIRC.

    In very old times (~2012), I guess Missaak created a java version playable online. I played with Andrzej several times. Great experience.
    More about the end of his game here.

    And he hasn't been on here since 2017, so it's safe to assume we're talking "Lost Media." Pity, if Ares could contact him and buy his code it would be a great platform to build out on, though then you have the Server problem. Hmm... maybe license it exclusively to the Aerodrome and Anchorage for Keith to put on the forum servers as Community Member Perks?

    Ares, although i have a soft spot in my heart for them, are not businessmen. They purchased BSG IP in the world Star Trek miniature game can't break through. They could make easy money on mighty paper (= cards), and they don't. I really don't understand them, and i have even stopped trying to. But i am glad they are still there.

    It's such a shame none of these official app projects ever came to fruition.
    To stay sane whilst in lockdown I've been having a bit of a tinker with tabletop simulator. The wings over the trenches module is nice if a bit tricky to actually use. Being more a WGS fan, I've started to bodge together a couple of assets for WGS but definitely more work required! At the moment I'm basically just re-purposing old projects I built ages ago for microsoft flight sim!

    Great! Very interesting.

    Out of the closet, this quite magnificent project:



    Alas the Kickstarter project was cancelled.

    Looks nice, Mark, textures gave it much better feeling

    Just...Zero pilot looks confused aboht direction of his flight

    I'm continuing to tinker with TTS. As it is all the assets are there, aside from damage chits, to manually play the game with a very limited selection of poorly textured aircraft (P40E, F4F, Zero). In the meantime instead of finishing these, I've been distracted by the scripting possibilities. I'm not going for anything close to the fully scripted masterpiece that is the X-Wing add-on, but I have created a couple of simple toys which could be useful. I've separated the base model from the aircraft model and added buttons so you can easily increment the height of your aircraft when playing with altitude. This also means I can devote an individual texture map to each item which should increase the visual quality. I've been tinkering with scripted movement as well though that is possibly beyond the scope of a first release. For now I only have a few simple test buttons which move the aircraft a few inches forward! Here we see a P-40 chasing a test cube around the table:

    For now I should probably concentrate on the damage chits and finish tidying textures then I can put up a limited first version on the steam workshop.

    So many projects that didn’t come to life :



    https://forum.unity.com/threads/wing...-alpha.271276/

    The author says :
    This is an early alpha/prototype that I worked on for ARES games and their Wings of Glory game.
    Note that I worked on this prototype for free, as a proof of concept and to demonstrate my development skills (or lack thereof) to ARES.
    Note this game, at this time, has not gone into production, so if you are a fan of Wings of Glory and would like them to make this game please contact them

    sounds just like Ares to me. This made me laugh.
