Great :)
What you mentioned are no bugs, those are things that simply have not been taken care of during the dev-time until now. It's a teaser, no more no less. It's simply what I could come up with in about for weeks.


well if thats the case, you did a bad ass job!   Whats the magic number that you need to hit in order to release the game ?

Screw NG Amiga's, how about releasing it on Classic.... oh wait, never mind.
I think it's time we had a Wings II on Classic Amiga; get some WWII action going. Personally, I wouldn't care if it's the same game with a new skin. You'd need a new WWII based journal though.
I love Wings.

I bet a new version for classic would outsell NG version without a problem. If the old sources are still available it wouldnt be a big problem. Just some small changes and a new box....

@Djole
Different game, different target platform, different topic please.
Regarding releasing this game for "classics" (if you consider an A1200 PPC Mediator Radeon setup to be a "classic", that is): well, even in the pre-pre-alpha demo at least the dogfights are at about the same, errm, "speed" as they were in the "original" Wings on an unextended A500 as soon as more than two enemies were around ;)

Thanks :)
We need 300 (pre)orders ( = all boxes that are going to be produced) to fully cover all the costs (we were at about 100 yesterday). However, we just decided to take the risk and do it / continue even if only 150 are preordered, hoping that the rest is going to sell later...
Cinemaware announced that information on a1k.org already, I hope the other forums will follow soon.

WOW...I didnt think you'd tell me the magic number of orders needed.  Well, add 1 to that count.  I just ordered.  Looking forward to getting  my boxed MorphOS version.

EDIT:  76 missions / 0 kills?  You're the friendliest fighter out there.  LOL

Regarding download versions, let me quickly translate Cinemaware's statement at a1k.org on this topic:

"The development depends on the sales of the boxed version. Therefore there won't be a download version for now. However there will probably be a download option for all buyers of the box because some people seem to prefer to have that option. .... If the 300 boxes have been sold and if we still noticed a "high" demand .... then we might reconsider that decision."

Why not? It's no secret.

;) I'm afraid those numbers will become less peaceful if / when I continue with the project...

Pasted from amigaworld.net, I hope that Sven won't mind. Only 10 preorders left!

"Hey,

this is Sven from Cinemaware. First thanks for all your support. I want to give you an update and some short information. This physical release is limited to 300 Editions. This will be the only physical release, no 2nd Boxed-Edition will follow. It will be a classic BigBox with the Manual (Aviation Manual included), Poster and a CD which includes the Game and the Soundtrack. Also the classic Wings is included.

One important thing. This is a real community project. Daniel worked for free till now and continues with developing if we reach 150 sales (right now we are around 130) but can only be completed paid if we sell all 300 copies. We, Cinemaware, will not earn anything on this game. If all 300 Boxes are sold, he can also fully concentrate on the Port, so the release of Feb. 2016 is really safe. Sales goes complete to Daniel for the port and the production of the box. So its really important that we get sold out :) If this project and also the "Defender"-Project are successfull, then other ports to Amiga-Systems are realistic.

So please support this game and also spread the word and link :)

@Varthall
Thanks for posting! For whatever reason the CinemawareRetro account here is not functional yet, postings not possible.

@AmigaNG
@amoskodare
Thanks guys :)

@all
Thanks to all who preordered so far!
The minimum amount of 150 preorders has been reached by now which means: I'm working on the port again :)

However, 300 are the amount we really need to fully cover all costs, including my development costs. Since this here is a complete rewrite and no "simple" port like for example Tower57 will be, those sum up.
The 300-calculation was meant to cover about three months of full time work on this title (plus production costs plus some other Cinemaware outlays, and taxes of course).
As you may guess with 150 preorders things look different. I am not able to work full time on this title for now. Consequently it is unlikely that the Feb. 2016 release date can be achieved.
I'll do as much as I can, but I'll have to take care first that my warchest stays filled to a certain level.

Because forum work eats up my time too I decided to keep a small development diary (not much there yet) instead of answering question X over there and talk about progress Y somewhere else.
That way you can always check out the current progress. I'll also answer (technical, gameplay related) questions there when I see some on any forum.
Just follow the link in my signature.

I'll also update the demo version from time to time, of course.

Cheers,
Daniel

@all german readers
I just kept my  promise and made the game's development diary bilingual, you can switch to german by clicking on  the coresponding icon located at the top-right of the page.

I ordered but Paypal made me use my shipping address on file. I am in the process of selling my house and may not be there when they ship. Is there a way to have you update my shipping info so I can have it sent to another address?

To those who don't follow the development diary too often:
it's model-conversion and -optimization time :p
I just put some new screenshots online, more to come for each new model. First I'm going to finish up the conversion tool though. Today I'll add an automatic optimize-model-for-iso-view command :)
