I hadn't played JA2 in a while, then got the courage to whip it back out and skim through at least JA2_Options.ini and get a rough game started. One crash, one deadlock, couple of bugs and damn, I love this game.

It is pretty damn hard to get back into it when you haven't played it for years and you have to re-learn that Shift+B drops your backpack. Thankfully, all the resources are there.

And I thought, I want to just say Thank You. I mean, I've been passively donating via Patreon, so I've had rich conversations with the Thank-You-Bot and the PayPal-Bot and I occasionally said thanks to some people a couple of years ago but I never really actually said a proper Thank You, I think.

Like, a proper Thank You to everyone who has been working on the game and especially those who continue to work on it, the game itself and the framework surrounding it. I'm not gonna start dropping names because I don't want to leave someone out. Though I am going to thank DepressivesBrot in particular for continuing to upload executables to his SkyDrive. I am a lazy man. Thank you, Depri.

But really, you've all been working for years, steadily providing updates to a game I love. The full game is way too complex and I love that. It is strange how this thing keeps drawing me in and how much fun I'm having. I bet I'll remember it fondly another twenty years from now. If it's not actually still being maintained and expanded by then, because you guys are persistent. Hah! Much love.

Thank you for so many features, thank you for so many little fixes and tweaks, for all those big and small impacts that shape this piece. I'm glad to have found this. I am glad to have this.

Daniel

I can only echo your sentiments, it is good to see that the game is still getting much deserved love and attention. I also would like to thank for all those who kept renewing the game one way or the other. I won`t name anyone either, we all know who you are. ;)

Peace

Now it is everytime clearer that JA2 is becoming a timeless classic, no new game will come close.

Modern games are either more casual, short sighted, less deep.


I bought the game in 2000 (20 years ago, crazy...) and have been playing 1.13 ever since I got internet.


For all the hard work, new features, balance debates we had here on bear's pit, weapons debates, casual discussions on JA's future etc and all the modders

Thank you everyone of you. happy
