Since my French is a little rusty, I used Google Translate on the page.

 

"commande" becomes "command" or "order" (it actually translated the email address two different ways in different posts).

 

Naturally, the email server is quite specific. ;)

Eheh OK frustrating indeed.

But funny thing is that if the email wasn't escaped (then with proper '@'), G.Translate wouldn't have translated it (I just tested it to see).

I guess its machine learning system doesn't know about escaped email addresses... yet! ?

 

There's also English text on the order page.

But maybe the page layout doesn't make it stand out enough.

Hey DarkLord,

 

The only ordering process is what it is now. ?

Send an email to the address mentioned on the website with details of your shipping location, and you'll receive an answer about the total cost and how you can pay.

All this is handled by Eric. It's a boxed release with quality materials but packaged and shipped by him.

He handled that process several times on the 8bit games he produced before.

 

You can wait for others to have received their copy before ordering yours if you want to be reassured.

If all copies have not been sold at that time of course. (not pressing or anything on this, just saying what could be)

I've sent an email but heard nothing. Bit I'm confused because (like Tillek says) it's confusing with commande/etc/etc
So my email has probably gone down a blackhole :(

Well, mine didn't go down a black hole.. I got an "Undeliverable" response almost immediately for my first two attempts.

Thanks for getting that settled.  I'll be finalizing my order after work today.  (Past few days have been a bit insane).

Hi everyone!

 

Thank you to all of those who have been so quick to order their copy of Athanor 2 - Legend of the Birdmen!

I have just started sending them out, so you should be receiving them soon enough!
This process can take a bit of time so please bear with me as I try to make sure your game reaches you.

Do not hesitate to contact me!
Yours truly,

 

Éric SAFAR

Just got my copy in today. I've not had time to install and play it yet but

everything looks top notch, a very high quality production. Love all the

little "extra's" inside the box.

 

Reminds me of the unadulterated joy I used to get when opening an

Ultima game adventure!  :)

 

Thanks for releasing this for the ST. Much appreciated!   :thumbsup:

Woah woah woah there man with the Ultima comparison.... Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.... You're comparing "your girlfriend" to Cindy Crawford there man.  Dial it back till she's had a chance to prove it. ;)

 

I'm sure they'll deserve it in the end, but let's make them go through the motions after we playtest it.  ;)

 

It helps that the holidays are coming.

Nah, I was just comparing the ride my "girlfriend" arrived in compared to what Cindy Crawford arrives in.

 

Wasn't even comparing "interiors"...yet...   :)

;)  Ok... That's fair....

 

Actually, I don't know if I ever saw a picture of her "in" a car... maybe "on" one but not in one, so the benefit of the doubt is given.

 

Though to be honest, this really looks great so far.  Can't wait to get mine.  And truth be told, when it came to feelies, I'd argue that Infocom may have been on par or better.  I still have my "wizard" trading cards and enchanter's guild pin around here somewhere.

 

The Ankh, alas.... probably long lost. :(

 You're right - I still have my Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy box, containing all

kinds of "what-nots", like the peril sensitive sun glasses, for example.  :)

 

Still haven't played A2 yet, but I did finish installing it. On the first disk it has

actual, honest to goodness, hard drive install software. Seems to work great,

found everything on the internal US in my Mega STe.

 

Gonna try and play it later on tonight.
