I'm depressed to learn of the true state of IF. I had hoped things would go better but it was immenent I suppose. I also don't believe they will ever allow the modding of IF legally. The game however still works fine and I'll be playing it more than ever!

I agree, I am also saddened by where it has gone, and tbh they were screwing around with us since the whole game started, with the  support,
the patches and lack of response at times.
Only legality we need to concern ourselves with is that we dont go off and sell the game with a new name, and to keep IF within IF itself.

i dont want any money involved, i respect the rights of the owners for legal purposes, beyond that they stopped the game, they gave up the game, and they
should have allowed modding from the start which would have brought them more money because the amount of content the community could have added to
the game would have exceeded more then what Awar could produce themselves, thus attracting many new customers, but I guess that was a mental challenge
for them to realize that the OFP/Arma series is a great example, but they screwed themselves,
thats their own fault, they should have known better.

So in one way its for the better, i'd rather be doing right now what we are trying to do then waiting around and getting no word from any of them,
all the BS we all dealt with was infuriating at times and these are people with money!
Once we get the game open and we can mod it we will fix it and upgrade it ourselves, no more BS from someone official even though im sure Awar had good intent,
but the rest of the pugs can keep their money.
The modding community for the Arma series and that is what IF and its DLC are part of the Arma series as it uses the RV engine, the community has always been very strong,
there was nothing that had stopped us from creating something that would add or fix an aspect of the game and you all know this, this game was left for us.

Alright Im very off topic here as we have a thread dedicated to such discussion.

Welcome to all the new members of the forum!

Quite ture, there is no hope from them at all currently. So what we shoud do is to help ourselves by modifying and etc. to keep the game alive. We paid it as you all know.

Just to let you know, this is the latest and only news we have had from a member of the development team involved in the creation of Ironfront.

Guys, the situation is pretty sad, mostly especially for AWAR, as the main developer. The game itself as a brand belongs to Deep Silver (publisher and investor), all the main decisions are also taken only by Deep Silver, and we are not approved to say anything not-agreed with them about the situation.
Iron Front was our first project. The sales were pretty successful as far as I know, but I don't see any moves to continue it by Deep Silver.

About the greediness - guys, please, don't forget that 50% of the Iron Front was done for free, just because we were hoping to release a good game. And personally, I think we achieved it. With a small team, with no experience of any big project before, we created a game that was noticed a bit in the world.
The need for money is not because we are greedy - we just need resources to keep the team alive - we don't have any serious capital. And so, we had somehow to move on. Now we work on a new project, taking in account all the good and bad experience we gained from Iron Front developing.

I'm sure they now make other WWII game as per a clue of Panzer Baron in that thread. But just don't know what it is at the moment... I wish they don't get any relations with Deep Silver in the new project this time.

I hope Bis buys Iron Front from Deep Silver. The same way they chose to make money off DayZ by making it stand alown. They can make money off the I44 idea by getting their hands on Iron Front. But what do I know.

One more year and IFL44 likely would have matured. Shame on Deep Silver and I feel sad, that it is a german company that puts the death blow on this great X1/AWAR achievement. The future sees me avoiding DS and Koch Media products like the plague for sure.

Not 2 days ago I was told that the official forums had gone and that I should "Live with it", this situation is becoming more bizarre by the minute. maybe the powers that be have heard what is going on here and either like it or don't ????????

I am totally confused, but I shall be spending my evening trawling through them looking for as much useful information as I can get my hands on before they disappear again
I suggest we all do the same.

Maybe DS made them available again that is if they have any access to bring them back up, now I got to wonder who then
bring the IF forums back up, and the wiki too?!

What are they doing, forums are still slow though.
These guys making decisions is like watching a snail take a sh**t, come on push!!!!, lol

Great idea Tay, lets do it before its too late again!
Grab everything!

Ya still trying to figure out what it means, has a bad taste to it, I think we should keep our forums here, as tbh they load quicker, and I like them more
then the official ones, but i will keep my eye in the official ones to see if anything is said about whats going on.
I wish someone would just say something so we can clear this crap off our chests.
