The post bij Alain-James sums up pretty much the feelings I have had when playing TF 1942.

My intentional delaying of new troops to bring to Guadalcanal so the campaign would last longer is something I fondly remember. Unfortunately, the A.I. would only send the occasional APD (which got subsequently sunk by Betty strikes) to resupply the Americans on the island if I remember correctly..... so the Americans would eventually die off because of lack of supplies. The very original copy protection scheme where you had to recognize ships from the ship manual or would be banished to a battle one can't win was a great touch!
Needless to say I was playing the bad guys most of the time, just like I do in my PBEM in WITP:AE.

TF 1942: great concept, great scale, great U.I.... all this in the mid Nineties! Let fly all the torpedoes again!


Can't wait to land the Ichiki Detachement again!

Please, keep us posted.

Certain buyer here!

Wow, AJ, what a post. Thank you very much.

My favorite part of making TF1942 was the design sessions I spend with Adm. William P. Mack. Adm. Mack was serving in the Asiatic Fleet on an old WWI-era destroyer when war with Japan broke out. He was a gunnery officer at the time. He taught me all the tactics, how the gun directors worked, and threw in a few war stories as well. What an incredible gentleman, and great man. I was honored to spend so much time with him.

Chucky, my first update is that this forum has provided some art volunteers, so hopefully I can continue moving forward again.

Thanks everyone.

Ed, Gator,

TF1942 gave me many dedicated hours of fun. Most of Microprose games did.

Regarding your remake; did you ever think of crowd sourcing?
Im willing to sponsor the game via kickstarter.com or other crowdsourcing sites and I believe many others will follow.
As simulator enthousiasts we have to come together and fund this great initiatives so we can continue to follow our passion..
I can build you slick preso if needed, make video and put it online and start getting resources in your project so you can find good quality people to help you.
Start your FB page and create buzz.
Let me know if I can help.
Smash!


Played games since PONG and never stopped playing

Just thought I'd chime in to say that I loved TF1942, played the bejesus out of it and would love to play it again! It is my favorite naval game of all time.

More than happy to contribute to this project if it gets off the ground. Plenty of experience with test automation.

Hi Verticeman,welcome to the forum.
To send a PM just left click on the user name in the box on the left of the post and select 'send a PM'.

Ed/Gator,

I would highly recommend Matrix Games as a potential publisher.

Too funny, I'm reading this now and am in the middle of the Battle for Cape Esperance and was thinking maybe there is a game I can "what if" this with? Hornfischer is a great writer and does a great job of delivering history, telling the story and providing a good study or the politics, personalities and technologies that effect the outcome. Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors is another great book of his.


Yep, I don't post allot. But I still love you.

The project is on hold again for the same reason - lack of art support. I've talked to a number of people who volunteered help, but it never seems to work out. I can't offer any compensation, so I really can't complain.
