Patch, Tourney, and (new) Site...

Well, first off, Big Huge Games released the patch download information prematurely, and they're sorry "for the false alarm". Talk about getting my hopes up and then dashing them. What I am eagerly looking forward to are the fixes to the out of sync problems, and the Red Fort issue.

Next, there's a tournament posted over at Mr. Fixit Online, the Smurf Tourney, where you sign up using a name no one knows you by. Smurf on over here for all the info, and to sign up.

Lastly, while I was away, a clan site opened up, the Kings Royal Guard. Their site has a forum, tournament info, a clan world map, and links to strats and recorded games.

Slowly easing back into RoN, smurf ya later!

Bleh, is the patch real...?

I tried downloading the patch last night, but it doesn't seem to work.

The autoupdate says there isn't a patch to download, and the instructions on how to manually patch aren't working. So what gives? Anyone know?

I'm baaaaaack....

Well, I could have at least explained my absence, but frankly, I was Rise of Nations-out. That, and my home computer had bitten the dust. I was only playing occasionally, and really not at all.

But now I've returned, and I'm going to stay.

Apparently they've patched the original RoN to bring it up to par with T&P, which is too bad, since I'll miss the old Maya. ;)

I'll be downloading the T&P patch which fixes the Red Fort crash bug apparently, something which has plagued quite a few of the games I play with friends over the LAN.

Wonder if anyone missed me...? :P
