Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
  Suddenly, out of nowhere, a quick nosing around the net by myself turns up new and previously unpublished X-Com Genesis Concept Art! IQ Option

Cue the usual wailing and gnashing of teeth after you see these. I've yet to hear, read or see anything that gives the impression Genesis would not have rocked our little booties off.

Check it out RIGHT HERE

Pocket PC
  A while ago Cyke posted a thread concerning a project to create a Pocket PC UFO by some russians.

However, no one could work out what it was all about, because their page wasn't in english. wink.gif

I posted some extra info about it using a translator, but instantly everyone seemed to lose interest... eh.gif

Anyway, it seems the site address has changed to this. Most of you won't be able to make much sense of it, so load up this translator page, and ask it to tranlate the site from russian for you. You can then browse the site, and the translation software will re-write each page as you go.

The reason I post this is they have released a beta version of their game. It runs in a Pocket PC Emulator that seems to be specially built to generate missions. Most weapons are available to use.

To play the game, load it up, make some settings (soldier count etc), then hit the Start Game button. Equip your soldiers as you wish, then hit the 'C' button (at the bottom of the panel) to enter the tactical display. To move a unit, select a place on the map for it to go to, then press the 'A' button. To change soldiers, use the appropriate button on the game screen. Given this, and the other buttons lying around the place, you should all be able to work things out. Have fun. IQOption smile.gif

There is, as ever, a slight problem. Copyrights. As usual, the copyright holders (who ever they are at the moment) are right snobs and ignore all contact from prospective developers. As such, the game might never hit the shelves. This would be a shame; The game has been built from scratch and is already quite impressive.

Maybe we should see if we can get some PR for this? Maybe the suits will pay attention if the project gets some decent lime light.

Move Complete
  As many of you may know, recent hosting issues have forced us to move yet again.

Since the domains transferred so quickly to this new server, I had to step in and finish the move quickly as well...

Anyone who had FTP or email access, please PM me your login and password and I will get these set up again ASAP. I know I only asked for all this information a few weeks ago, but details were misplaced in the chaos and I don;t have everyone's information any more.

I've set up all email accounts with a secret password, so when your proper password kicks in, you won't have lost much mail - only a few hours worth if any.

Apologies again for the inconvenience, but we're here now smile.gif

Hold on Tight!
  The hosting company that hosts this fine site has been aqcuired by another hosting company. This means that any posts made during the next 24-72 hours may or may not carry over, adn there may be some site weirdness whilst we are moved to better, more spacious accomodation. IQ Options

I had checked out this other company a few months back when we were still having trouble with this server, and they seemed fine, so I'm sure it's nothing to be concerned about... just another of the minor inconveniences we've come to know and love wink.gif

So... err... yeah... thanks for your patience again!

I hope this is true
  You see this is why i hate aprils fool, now i cant tell if this is for real or not. An interesting thread here on a version of X-Com for the pocket PC, talking about this thread here taken from the developers site here. The fact the origin is in russian doesnt help.
I'm hesitant to even post this, i hope it doesnt backfire argh.gif
