Title: PC Zone Featured Us! :D
Post by: Vector on May 25, 2010, 12:25:16 pm
Just got a phone call from a mate who while shopping spotted that Star Wars Conquest had been featured in PC-Zone, he did also text me a quick shot of it:
(http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m78/LostVector/DSC_00220.jpg)

So i'm going to head down the shops in a minute and pick up a copy, will upload a full HQ image of it.

~~~~ Edit ~~~~

Finally managed to head down and pick up a copy, the review was pretty good on us and we also made the DVD.  :D
Heres the images i promised;

Is a pitty about the image they chose could have been abit better but apart from that it's a pretty positive feature.

Woww. And they didn't even told us a thing... Well, at least they are good news. Very good news.

P.D. This diserves an update on the Mod DB page. So when you get those images go for it...  :)

Lol I haven't got hold of the magazine yet, though I'm getting one of my mates to scan it in later. ;)
I will try and pop down the stores later today to pick one up, ran out of time yesterday.

This is aweeeeeeeesome!  (http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee247/max_kele/emoticonos/impresionado.gif)   (In spanish: ¡Increiiiiiible!)  :)

Good work with the scaning stuff, Vector... and thanks for share with us so great news...  ;)
I'm about to post it in the ModDB page (right now)

PD: Of course the thanks also goes for your mate  ;)

PD2: Oh, and I'm thinking in changing the ChildBoard theme, with a self-made css... for giving the forum a more professional style, etc...
Here is a test drive I'm using for testing (not finished yet) (http://swconquest.6te.net/community2/)

What did you think about?

Thanks! I've also did a new large tutorial showing how to install the module... (Lots of people asking me about)

Vector. Can you take it an eye and correct the spelling mistakes?

PC GAMER also featured you - this mod is the only reason I picked up the original Mount and Blade (already have Warband) and it's stealing more hours from me than Warband has so far!

You wouldn't happen to be able to upload a image of the article could you?  :D
I did hear from some else also that we were featured in PC Gamer but they no longer had that issue around.  :(

I think I should get a picture of it!

I should have it in .PDF format somewhere...

I can't find the old PC Gamer magazine, but I know and swear it's why I picked up Mount and Blade (the original), I honestly wouldn't have otherwise had they not feature Star Wars: Conquest in the modding section.

Look for the PC Gamer issue "200 Reasons to own a PC", it has a modding section that speaks directly of Star Wars: Conquest for Mount and Blade and another Star Wars mod for Call of Duty.

I've found the article, but when searched for "Star Wars Conquest", "Mount&Blade", etc "0 Results found"  ???

1 to 100 (pt 1)    >  http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=213997

101 to 200 (pt 2) > http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=214110

No luck!

That is really neat we got mentioned in PC Zone, thanks for the image and posting it!

I found the May 2010 PC Gamer PDF that Chemical-Attraction mentioned.  There is a star wars mod mentioned but it wasn't ours, so maybe you heard about our mod on their forum or something, etc.
