i just happened to click on my old link to the old IF44 Official Forum and to my surprise it is back up and running. 

What has happened to bring that about?

They have been back up for a little while now, no one knows why they came back or for how long they are staying, but it seems most that still have interest in the game now come here and those that don't...don't Myself and Gunter have spent alot of time retrieving as much useful information from the site and the wiki and set it up on this forum, not everything by a long shot, but the most useful stuff. However should you see something you think we missed feel free to post it on these. By the way thanks for the video tutorial links. I may collate them into one post and make them a sticky when I get some time.

Yea, you should check Oksman's site, there are alot of other great editing tutorials, but they are Arma2 and not IF44 related.  But they still are useful as IF44 is based on Arma2.

As to the official IF44 Forum, those guys are a trip. They are the worse marketer i have ever seen in my life.  They drop the Forum with no explanation; then bring it up with no explanation. What do they think they are accomplishing by this?  They have had marketing and customer service issue before, during, and after release of the game.  They just keep shooting themselves in the foot.

Why i think they have brought it up is that they plan to release something for sale and want to get the old customers to buy it.  That is like they went totally silent and then did not come back to life until few weeks before they released their DLC.  A DLC everyone told them they did not want.

If they do have a new release, and i hope it is Hitler Moves East IF41, they need to start communicating NOW.  Those who fail to learn from history, doomed to repeat it.

They could use some marketing classes, or why don't they try to finally listen to their loyal customers.

Not sure where you have been hiding??   and I know its not been stated officially, but it seems all official support for the game has been dropped. So no more patches, no more dlc etc, hence why this Revival Mod project is currently a possible breath of fresh air.

No i have not been hiding, but i smell something.  They did not bring that official forum back up for the hell of it.  I bet they have something to offer for sale soon and it may not be related to IF44 or perhaps it might. 

I smelled something last time when there was total silence about patch for IF44 after its release for months and months and months.   Then the patch became available FINALLY just weeks before they offered a new DLC for sale.

So just saying i smell something afoot.

Yes, maybe. But it's still the same wrong way of ignoring to give the informationn about their work and game, and no promotion of sales in the market.

Why is such a topic being discussed on another thread, if you guys need to discuss anything official, be it Awar, DS, or BIS related to IF then use this thread:
http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/What-is-everyones-thoughts-and-feelings-about-Awar-and-the-official-support-for-the-game-6238834
or this thread more specifically:
http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/Ironfront-official-Forums-6233087

IF Forums have been up now since March 19th.
And theres plenty of conversations going on about the forums. Please search before you post.
