Patch and Map Editor news
NeilJ tried to spread the flu throughout the Bitbro's
office, but most of them survived to keep on working.
Seriously, I'm really happy that Neil Jones-Rodway, one
of the Z: Steel Soldiers designers, finally got to answer
my mail, and since it's so important and awaited stuff
I had to share it with you guys. Here's what he had to
the past month or so we've all been tied up with design
and plan stuff for another project - this is why we've
been fairly quiet, but it's been important that we get
This is pretty much done now, so hopefully we can also
sort out exactly what we're in a position to do regarding
Steel Soldiers and the editor. I'll let you know soon...

sure I do it in behalf of all Z:SS fans worldwide when
I thank you for your support, Neil.
got a word out of BBs, specifically from Kolin Tregaskes,
their very kind webmaster. Apparently mails to the top
heads are hard of actually being read due to their very
scarse spare time, which's perfectly normal. Kol was also
the one to 'blame' for the original requests of Gamespy
Arcade fixes. His words follows:
we had someone complain about this, but I can't really
do much about external sites, so had to contact Gamespy
about this. Found a few other things wrong as well,
the link when you go into the Z: SS lobby in GameSpy
Arcade was wrong, the link from the Z: SS page on GameSpy
was going to the old links and GameSpy Arcade doesn't
detect Z: SS if installed if you have any other version
besides the US one. I hope all these should be fixed
by GameSpy (awaiting news on the latter).
No news on a new patch as yet, but as always our site
will have any news
my experience I know that if you search for new games
on Gamespy Arcade, after installing the british language
version, it won't immediately show up. Closing GSA and
launching it again generally solve the problem.
a lot for your support, Kol!
Planet Banner into rotation
very own banner is finally running on the Gamespy Network,
with more than 10,000 impressions per week which's quite
a lot of exposure. There's it:

1.41b links updated II
to Silverdawn help, FilePlanet links have been fixed,
and older patches links were removed to avoid confusion
between newbies. Our links
section is now pointing to the FilePlanet links and
to Inthexis mirror files, so you can choose your fastest
download route (if you have a fileplanet personal server
account gamespy will very probably be a faster option).
month of silence
from Bitmap Brothers studios about Z:SS lately has been
a bit disheartening... I'm still trying to get some fresh
info for you guys about the next patch and the very needed
fixes and small improvements.
1.41b links updated
to the technical difficulties of obtaining the essential
patch 1.41 files from FilePlanet, we've changed our
links to the files on the Inthexis mirror on the stanford.edu
domain. Up to now, only the US, UK, Italian and Spanish
versions are available on his web server, so the other
language versions still links to the FilePlanet files.
We'll keep you informed about it.
