    I should have listened to you all about the IAL

    But I bought a copy a while back anyway and started using it. At first glance it looked quite nice! It printed out your army list nicely, with all the weapons values and special abilities right there! How convenient!

    But then....the nightmare began.

    Last week I went to the IAL website to see if they had posted an update for the new Tau codex. Nope, not yet. So I sent them an email to ask when they were planning on posting it.

    Of course I haven't received a reply.

    So I go back to the website, just to check again, and I notice that the last update was posted on January 26th.

    OF 2005.

    :realmad:


    So now I just downloaded Armybuilder and the site says they expect to post the next WH40k update in a week or so. I'm assuming it'll include the new Tau stuff. :yes:

    Why did I waste my money? WHY?

    I'm actually older than you. :shifty:

    Blows my mind that GW would be ok with releasing a product like this when they have no intention of supporting it. :rolleyes:

    The thing was very buggy anyway so I'm told, touble with wargear and such. Bad luck old boy.

    I was tempted to spend my hard earned english quids on said product, but bought a codex instead, which was far more useful in the long run.

    I would like to add that I as well bought a copy of enemies of the imperium and have been very dissapointed with the program. It was a real pain when I realised on turn one of a game that the program did not adjust stats to match wargear selections. ( ie. no +1 to attacks for additional weapons.) I even heard a rumor that someone could not use thier army list at a tourney because of the poor quality of the army list. Ok my last gripe is how easy the dang thing crashes for the sillest mistakes.

    Thought for the day: A Burning Heretic , Will brighten the Decor of any room.

    Yeah, things like this are what disappoint me so much. The IAL is a great concept, it's just that GW's execution could not have been worse. The software itself is and always has been buggy, and GW appears to have absolutely no interest in either fixing it or supporting it. The last update to the army lists for the program was over a year ago. Ugh. They shouldn't have even bothered. Hopefully some unsuspecting person with too much money and not enough sense (like me) will buy my copy on Ebay.

    They can't even get a hard copy codex right, why would anyone expect them to be able to write a decent software program?
