Hello, I have recently come across your Combat Helo project. Personally I think it looks fantastic, and will definably be a breath of fresh air to the helo sim community.

I was wondering if Combat Helo will also be sold in stores in America, as well as Great Britain.

Thanks!

We will evaluate publishing options later in the year. Currently there are no plans and no deals have been signed with a distributor. They are waiting for us to get evaluations of the game ready which won't happen until after have firing range map is released.

Do you guys really need a distributor? Not knowing all the marketing stuff out there (so don't flame me please grrr ), but can't you distribute it on your site, using Paypal or some other payment form? I think word-of-mouth will help market it. I, for one, will be buying any release (pre-beta, etc) as soon as you get that purchase button working

Do we NEED one? Perhaps not. Might we do better WITH one? Probably. I'm not a business man and I'm not diplomatic. There are people who know the distribution routes who put a lot of sim product on shelves and on-line who have the time to promote and push product. In the long term I want to make better games with better tools and that means pushing the equivalent of 5,000 units over a six month period which is actually a lot in this genre. I don't see how we can realistically do that in the current climate without some kind of support. Consider that a better than average FSX add-on aircraft might shift 1,000 to 2,000 units, piracy probably doesn't help when margins are so precarious.

Whether GFWL will be required to play?.It will not be possible to play without him?I do not make any difference, but most people do not suffer GFWL and recently scored a great defeat Bulletstorm,many people abandon the purchase just because GFWL.
As I wrote, it does not bother me in any way, loose note.

GFWL (Games for windows Live) won't be required. There was an accidental logo usage. It's been fixed.

Will there be anti-piracy measures taken? Ways to make it far more difficult/ virtually impossible to torrent? I've heard rumors that some other small groups have been researching ways to insert a virus into a computer with a pirated copy.

I am a firm believer that every single developer deserves the money they worked long and hard into the night for their product, and I think that every measure possible should be taken to protect something as good as this, especially an indie project.

Yes will be the latest version of Starforce 7.x,ie will require constant access to the internet, even when computer disabled.And every day you have to enter a new serial number.Of course, a computer virus Flexman also thoughts you will get the pop-Talib with Kalashnikov every 10 minutes.I hope you're satisfied.
examples here : (still work in progress )

I don't want to engage in the Ying and Yang of anti-piracy methods. None of it works except to discourage casual piracy and it annoys users. The game will offer added value content and upgrades registered users can enjoy throughout the life-cycle. Encourage people to do the right thing is all I can do. I still have faith in people.

BTW, there's an another small typo in your webpage in the aircraft specs, more precisely in the CH-47D Chinook specs, where it says that the Maximum speed is 200 Knots and the Never exceed speed is 170 Knots but obviously these values should be the contrary (Maximum speed is 170 Knots and the Never exceed speed is 200 Knots). wink

WOW! I've never heard of such sophisticated anti-piracy measures! I can't wait to see that, especially with the pop-Talib virus spreading across the web. Top notch work.

Taking a closer look into SeaHawk's post I'm also starting to believe that he really believes in what you posted and really believes is all of those crappy/BS DRM protection schemes that unfortunally exists nowadays... eek
