A plea for S. Lebourcq

Mon Sep 13, 2021 11:17 pm

Sir,

First of all, I've never met you. We've played once, yes; but overall, I'm a stranger.

Still, I'm a fan of your work. My heritage notwithstanding, your RUS game and events have been amazing. Almost, that is. When they work.

And they don't work.

I've played RUS (the original; the expansion; the patches, every single one of them). I've played RUS many, many times as I'm genuinely passionate about the period in history.

And after 1919, they always crash, sooner or later.

Sir, do you need more testers? Do you need more volunteers? You've had and held a unique piece of history in your hands, and due to a handful (? perhaps? - I am no programmer) possible outcomes the entirety of your effort is wasted; the game is unplayable.

I have no idea as to your current business arrangement with AGEOD - but as a user, I'm deeply sad.

You had a chance for glory.

You missed it.

Many years ago, the RUS games were not said so crashing, they were released in not so bad shape.
So the crashes seem to occure due to uncompatibility with old new Windows or material features.
Yup, that's sad there was no support for this, I'm myself upset with those crashes and no longer try to play RusG.

Thank you for all the responses. You know, it's quite sad, that as many resources as we all have with the advent of Internet, shoddy programmers still can make a living.

- Just a sad strategy player.

P.S. I've learned to back up each save outside of Steam game directory, each save created right after all orders had been submitted. So, time lost to crashes had been minimal. I'm even going to attempt an AAR:
