I'm in touch with the developers, oldbroad, who have assured me my pledge will be honoured - but they can't give me a definite indication of when, yet whistle

Well, I guess that is good news, for now anyway.

Thanks JKEerie! I am currently on a streak of approximately 80 days without buying a game but am considering breaking the streak for this. Not sure yet though. smile

Does anybody know if they have solved the problem with Windows 7?

I did not know that there was a problem. What is the nature of the problem?

Marian, the problem is that the game does not work on Windows 7 frown
One my friend had to refund, because the game was said to support Windows 7, but it did not.
They have later changed the requirements to 'Windows 7 in development', but there was no news about that since the beginning of February.

As of Mid March, they are still working on getting the game to run on Windows 7, according to a thread in the game discussion on Steam.

I’ve been following the ROTS Windows7 issue and they have just announced that a critical part of the updated program will not run under Win7 and there is no possible workaround so the game will henceforth only be available on Win10. They gave it their best shot. I can only imagine how much work they put in trying to fix this. It’s not like they are a big company.

A couple of people got pretty upset, but the fact is that Microsoft doesn’t support Win7 anymore so game publishers can’t be expected to support it. On the other hand, in all fairness to those who got upset, the game was initially released as running under Win7 and Win10 and it can only be assumed that the company just assumed it would run on Win7 without doing much in the way of testing.

That's all good to know, SirDave. Thanks for the post. And I don't disagree.
