Cool! Congrats!<P>I hope that LA will consider to do another XW in the next years and I don't know why, but I have a feeling, that we will see a new XW simulator someday! :)<P>I have wirtten for the Official Star Wars Fanmagazin here in Germany, but at the moment the magazine is full, sadly!

Yay! Superb! The more PR we get the better! Even scandals would help :)<P>But seriously, that's a fine job you did, Ace! Maybe this really brings more attention to this community!<P>And of course I share everybody's hope for a new X-Wing game :)

Lucky dog. Hopefully LA will have some sense knocked into them after reading this article and get something out.<P>Or, as samsolo might say, get something out before 2005.

Would there be any way to post a copy of the article online for those non-brits? I'd love to read it! :)

Nice way to spread the word Ace Antilles ;).<P>LA believes in Console Communism. There is no hope. They seem to miss the point ALL the time...<P>[ 13 September 2003: Message edited by: General Taskeen ]<p>[ 20 September 2003: Message edited by: General Taskeen ]

Magazine: $6 dollars, or 4.5 pounds, or whatever the exchange rate is<BR>Shipping to the US: $1.99<BR>Seeing the XWAU mentioned in print: priceless. <BR>Some things money can't buy. But enough of it and LA may start thinking about a new game... :D
