On the mod page, switch the the alpha-7-7 branch! Sorry, I should have mentioned that!

Top left in this pic there's a drop down letting you switch branches


Easier yet, the link to the branch directly is:

Ah, I see, thank you very much :) Edit: I have been playing around, and sometimes when I switch teams for support etc this shows up in the top left corner: http://imgur.com/J5mZMoh : not sure what's causing it but I wanted to let you know anyway.

Not sure what you're referring to in the top left corner? The message about not being competent on design work? That's a normal part of the game afaik. You just need to send them away on a course for whatever the message says they're no good at.

Anyone had a chance to run through from 1970-1980 yet? Keen to get some feedback so I can see what to balance; getting the first 10 years right will shape the balance for the remainder of the game. :)

I mean that it says not compete with TigerX even when not developing anything especially TigerX.

I see what you mean now. No idea. Not sure if the mod caused that or if it's a problem in the game...

I see you were over 20mill by 1972, I assume by going all-in on OS's? Might see if I can tweak OSs more and make it harder... :P

Actually, don't tweak it, I added cash to build a company and sped up time to see what sort of stuff was in the game, I'll do a proper run at some point :P

Hey !

Im playing with your mod, and I think I have a kind of bug with Specialist Networking : 0 sale, each time I try to dev it. It worked 1 time, and then just 0 sales each time, which is a little bit annoying ^^

PS : sorry if my english is not perfect, I'm French :P

That's not a bug skullex. The market for specialist networking is *very* small. You can make a few thousand at the start of the game if you beat your competitors to the market.

To confirm, if you check all software, did another company release specialist networking in the last 6 months?

I know the market is small, but when I do outstanding software with 0 sales and in the same time AI do bad or mediocre softwares and sell them ... In my game there are 2 other companies that provide SN, and people buy them ;)

I don't think it unrealistic though. If there's a market out there for a niche product for which there is no supplier, the second a product is brought to market (low quality or otherwise) the customers have no choice but to buy the awful product.

For Specialist Networking, I recommend starting it on day 1, and not bothering to go beyond "Good" quality if you want to get it on the market in time. It should be about the same in profit/time as running contracts over the same period? The difference being you deny your competitors that money. ;)
