The Longest Day Sun, 06 June 2010 14:43
After giving sweat and blood for their country and sacrificing countless hours away from their loved ones, our code-breakers and military planners finally managed to find a rare window of opportunity for us to fly a few brave souls over occupied France last night.

A first wave of commandos jumped over Normandy shortly after midnight on June 6. Their mission: to establish a beachhead and clear the way for all those to follow in Operation Memoir '44 Online Beta.

Watch this forum for detailed reports from our embedded war correspondents and photographers.

This is the advanced Allied command post of the invasion forces. Part of the amphibious forces, which struck at France this morning were manned by personnel of the International Memoir '44 community.

I are pleased to report that our young men have made contact with the enemy and progress seems to be slow but steady! Our troops understand the weight that is on their shoulders and I have no doubt that they will be equal to the task ahead of them.

I will do my best to provide our listeners around the world with regular updates of what's happening on the front line. Stay tuned!! Cool

Being that it's online, I imagine you'll be able to play this on the iPad without any trouble. If I had one I would love to give it a try, being that it's such a fun computer to play on!!

Yes it will run on XP.

It does not need a super-machine, it's more about having a machine with the latest version of Java, and a good video card with the latest OpenGL drivers.

Re:The Longest Day Mon, 07 June 2010 00:43
Not such a long day after all...

After some initial Tiger troubles...I got the program working on my PC (that's how bad I wanted to try this...lol!)

Fan-tastic! Played out very well. Quite intuitive for the most part (couldn't get the hang of Ambushing...I panic too easily perhaps!).

Graphics were excellent.

All in all, very enjoyable even with the occasional glitch that seemed to resolve itself if given a bit of time.

Looking forward to more battles!

For the Ambush, it is critical to read the user manual. Smile

I did ran in one instance where it quite didn't do the Ambushing I wanted on Omaha, but that still worked out OK for me, as the Axis commander would testify Very Happy

I'm working on a rather long reflection of my observations and thoughts for everyone. My wife thinks I might be too thorough but I figured that you guys won't mind too much! Laughing

I'll be sharing it as soon as it's ready, so stay tuned. Cool

Hi!

Umm...I'm what do you mean? Smile I'm afraid I'm kinda lost. Does this mean Memoir 44 is now playable with players over the internet? Or is it still being programmed?

We look forward to it! Just make sure you post it in a separate thread, so that we can discuss about it without filling up this one.

Thanks,

Re:The Longest Day Tue, 08 June 2010 14:30
la version sera t-elle aussi française?
ou simplement "anglaise"?

car certains joueurs préfère Molière à Shakespeare.
et j'en fait parti.

donc, ne pas les oublier Wink

Not to cause more stress or anything, but is this eventually going to be available for Google's Android OS as well? There are a lot of ipad competitors coming out that run Android, it would be nice (and totally awesome) if you planned to support that as well.

Frankly I don't think you're going to see this on Android OS anytime soon.
