Am I the only nut case here camping the BMT Micro order page waiting for the link to go live with a credit card clutched in my fist about to overdose on coffee.

Are you calling me a nut case?

Well, I even checked timezones, just to know the possible "update time" of the pages...

Mine is hidden under my keyboard, my hands started sweating and I lost the grip...

I just set this page as starting web page when I open my browser.

Now, who's the "nuttest"?

Absolutely fanfreakintabulous!!! This has got to be the best news in awhile for me. I too am waiting breathlessly by the link with card gripped so firmly it has become part of my palm. Also a good chance that I will get both versions. Dammit it's good to be alive!!!!!

Just a quick FYI.

There are some [legal] issues going on with Dreamcatcher atm, thats why you have not seen a Gold announcement from them. I won't go into details at this time; but expect something (by way of a press release) from me in a few days.

However, problems on their end don't affect our (3000AD Inc) release of the game. I have just been waiting so that our release coincides with theirs; though I am not contractually required to wait for them to release their boxed retail versions.

As far as we are concerned; the BMT Micro and Trymedia sites are ready to roll and just awaiting the word from me. Other sites (e.g. IGN's Direct2Drive) have also expressed an interest; and if that works out, the games will be available there as well.

The UC to UCAWA add-on is 335MB.

The UCAWA full version (which we also have download rights to) is 635MB. I am undecided as to whether to release this version as well or not. Until I decide, we will only be making the add-on version available. Which means that if you wanted the full version, you have to wait for the Dreamcatcher boxed retail release.

Nevetheless, UCAWA will be available (at least from us) in May, as previously scheduled.

We also have a couple of new projects to announce this week. Two of which are shipping in 2005, one in 2006 and another in 2007.

Actually, contrary to what I posted last night, only the full UCAWA version will now be available for retail or e-commerce purchase.

With UCG coming in July, it doesn't make any sense in wasting resources on the add-on version.

So, UCAWA and UC will now install independently; as will UCG.

Good to know.

Any prevision on when the boxed version will hit the shelves here in Europe/Italy?

With the problems gone with DC now it would became smoother....

Does this mean the full version will not convert the UC ACM/IA scenarios for use with UCAWA?

I'm really liking the new engine. I've been playing the demo so much, I'm starting to think that protecting the New Yorker is my primary goal in life.

I've run the "Protect the New Yorker IA so many times that I've actually gotten pretty good at it. Translate- I don't die right after jumping to Mars.

UCG is like UC AWA lite- look at the system requirements.

Not even close.

There is a product description PDF on the product page for each title. You folks might want to actually read it.
