Thumbs up

I also got my copy this week through amazon (game version 2.1.0.0, I would appreciate if someone could confirm that this is the latest uk version).

The graphics are actually pretty good (no X3 but then X3 does not allow you to land on planets). For example take the saturn rings (I assume it saturn) which look like a bitmap at first, however fly to it and it develops into proper individual detailed asteroids (actually impressive the first time you do this).

I wish the cockpit textures were a bit more detailed though (hopefully the game can be modded).

The voice acting is as to be expected but so far it really is a good game.

Just ensure you drop the gamma (which for some reason will not keep its setting) and crank up the graphic settings.

This is great to hear that someone else already has it too
One thing we can at least be sure of, the game is ready.

I don't care so much about the graphics, meaning that they don't have to look as good as the X series, if they are still ok then that's more than fine for me.

I'm looking especially forward to the planetary landings, really curious how that looks and feels and what exactly can be done on those planets.
Also how good the story is and how much freedom of play you have.

Thx for the tip on the gamma setting, I'll keep that in mind for when I get the game.
Highest settings shouldn't be a problem, got a really good config.

So what we know for now is,

- joysticks are supported
- graphics look good but not top notch
- voice acting isn't of the greatest quality (except for the girl (voice only, character?) in the ship, she has a sexy voice )
- textures can be better on some things
- good impression of the game so far, looks promising
- 3 options, arcade, inertial arcade and simulation
- no online activation and no copy protection
- oh and a Xmas tree in the cockpit

Hehe.. I was admiring that just long enough to fly smack into an asteroid.

I haven't had that trouble, so it might be specific to some graphics cards, or a driver issue.

Shouldn't be a problem for many; space sims are rarely that demanding and this is a lot less so than X3, for example.

First possible 'issue', and a question for unholydog, though. Communications. At the end of the battle that concludes the tutorial mission I called up the messages history to see a load of what was obviously battle cockpit chatter, none of which I either heard or saw as pager messages. It's obviously completely useless after the event, so am I missing something? I'm guessing the original voice chat was in Russian (like the sample when setting the voice volume level) and that was never included (or translated and included) in the English language version(?), but is there really no way of seeing it on screen as it's generated? None of the subtitles or pager options seem to do the trick. It's not essential as the 'objective' messages tell you what you really need to know, but even the text would really add to the atmosphere. After the battle is finished, a couple of portraits appear several times top left, obviously supposedly with messages - but I can't hear them, and those ones don't seem to appear on the pager list. Any ideas, m8?

BTW, request to 1C if any of the devs ever read this board.. if Russian cockpit chat was left out (?) is there any way of enabling it, or making the files available? I'd rather have Russian than silence. Indeed, if the English version ever gets a patch I'd rather like to have a Russian language option throughout with English subtitles.

BTW (again), having had a poke around the install directory there seems an awful lot of configuration settings you can mess about with. Something who is into that sort of thing might have a lot fun.

I have had the same problem with the communication, I thought it was just me. Especially when a face kept popping up, flickered and then went away, I assume it was to tell me something but couldnt understand what.

Like you say it would be nice to get some feedback from the developers.

I've dropped a line to support asking for somebody to stop by, more in hope than anticipation, maybe. Not a showstopper by any means, but it would be nice to know if there's an answer at our end, or if it needs a patch. I assume it's a new problem; if it had been in the Russian version it would presumably have been fixed a while ago.

Can you get past mission 2 where you have to escort the ships to the planet.

Whilst flying onto the planet I get some gibberish text pop up that I have no idea what it is trying to tell me. Once this text appears the game exits to the main menu and I cannot proceed any further.

Yeah I noticed that too slamelov but its probably a mistake.
On the other hand on Gamersgate it only says XP so I wonder if it'll run on Vista

Got both OS though so I don't have to worry about that.

TW is compatible with both XP and Vista.

Ok thx Nike-it

Btw, just found The Tomorrow War on Ebay with no shipping costs from within Singapore.
Now that I don't trust, I'm gonna patiently wait till it becomes available on Gamersgate.
