The Dead file. LOL - I thought DO did well in sales. Can you tell us how many copies sold?

Re: R O T F L M A O
We cannot disclose figures as per our contracts, but my title "the dead file" really had nothing to do with sales of any of our old titles and all about giving serving our past customers. As our company has gotten older, there are more titles "out-of-print" for one reason or another. Typically when a title goes out-of-print we archive the game forum for that particular title and remove it from view. However, people who bought the game previously then have no where to go to find other players or to ask game questions because the forum is gone from view. In order to show those past customers that we value their purchases we've decided to provide this area as a place they can still post.

The two subforums listed in this area used to be listed in the archive area at the bottom of the forum for users to browse. It made more sense, because they are both "out-of-print" to just move them into this forum so that it takes up less real estate in the forum (i.e. less scrolling). Who knows, we may resurrect other old forums and put them as locked subforums here as well. For now though, I just cleaned up the existing visible forums.

Lol, I started laughing too when I saw this, but can I make a suggestion, could this forum "The Honorably Discharged" as "the Dead File" sounds like some dark folder in a NSA desk. lol

But you know what, it goes to show that shrapnel supports their products and past developers and the fans of those product lines.

Re: R O T F L M A O
Ah I like The Honorably Discharged, sounds alot nicer.

Atrocities I think these forums are for games that are out of print but just never had a big community. DO might have sold well but almost no one ever posted in the forums.

Re: R O T F L M A O
We may be doing some other reorganization in a couple areas of the forums as well to aid in community development in those areas. And yeah, I might change the name, it's a new area so I am still adjusting things.

Re: R O T F L M A O
Can you comment on the actual number of units of DO that sold?

Re: R O T F L M A O
MUCH better. I was also bothered by "dead file".
Maybe its because Im retired military but I feel that Honorably Discharged is nicely respectful, and also fits into the theme of "Shrapnel" as a company name. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif

Re: R O T F L M A O
Ya, it seems like it would be nice to have the forums and also some more info (like the product info pages and old press releases) on products previously published by Shrapnel, for historical interest purposes. Shrapnel has published some interesting games in the past that aren't currently available, such as Steel Beasts and Runesword 2! Having some more info would show some more of the neat games Shrapnel has offered in the past.
