Any other option than steam?

I saw map of Europe and I found one mistake. Territory of Budjak was part of Russian Empire and not of Romanian Kingdom.

There will be other options - we are working out the timing of those and will let you know soon.

Yepp, and the hungarian map isn't correct. The border of Hungary-Austria is the status after the peace, and at 1912 they didn't know anything about the region split which dictated at Trianon. And I think Transylvanian regions have to split otherwise (North-Transylvania and South Transylvania), because after Trianon, Horthy (the hungarian chief of state) get North-Transylvania from the Viennese pacts. So I suggest to change a bit the Austro-Hungarian map, because of the realistic! I try to make a picture about: http://imageshack.com/a/img837/945/sg1c.jpg

Cheers!

I've noticed a recurring theme in the screenshots where Sandžak region between Serbia and Montenegro is controlled by Serbia, when it should be controlled by the Ottoman Empire.

What is the cost and when do you plan to have alternatives to steam?

westnile3 MH:TGW, MHII, MH GOLD

Steam is the best distribution method i believe, Valve really helps small dev teams out and has a much larger audience to possibly see and try out MHGW. On the other hand alternatives wouldn't hurt i suppose

Agree - Steam and Valve do a lot to help indie developers. That said we know that not all of our players want to buy through Steam so we will be working on other options.

I remember that there have been some problems with the multiplayer server operating with the steam purchased game. This concerns me since I definitely plan to play multiplayer with this. If there isn't likely to be any problem, I will buy the game on April 4th without the slightest hesitation.

When you buy on Steam you get a code that works here on making-history.com as well so you should be covered. We are also looking at supporting MP on Steam.

At this point, I consider Steam to be a bug, not a feature. I've not had good success playing games through Steam, unfortunately. My main beef with Steam has been Civ 5. :(

Admittedly, I've only tried 3 or 4 games on Steam, so I don't have a large wealth of experience with them.

dave   Site Admin MH:TGW, MHII, MH GOLD

We do plan to offer the early version of the game here, probably shortly after PAX East.

I have more than 300 games on Steam and I love the platform. Never had a problem. And the Steam Workshop is great (I hope MH:TGW will have eventually support for that)

Something to let us play around with some knowledge vs hunt & peck in the dark
