"Tomorrow, 5150 Star Army Total War will be the Deal of the Day. Check it out!"

Why not tell me when it actually becomes on sale instead of sending an email that it will be discounted tomorrow?.......having said that, you've not had the decency to be bothered to answer my previous post, why would you expect me to buy it anyway?!?

I've bought a lot of your stuff but frankly you really seem to be taking the XXX now, and I wish I could get a refund on all the products I've bought from you!

As I mentioned in the previous post, I did not see this until today. Is it better to tell you that it's on sale that day or the day before. I don't know as no one has mentioned this before. The rules that are updated are because I listen to the players. Been doing this for 20 years and players have changed what and how they want to play, and I adapt it for them. There are other ways to contact THW such as their Facebook pages and if you don't like Facebook, their Forum.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

What's the difference compared to 5150: Star Army – Citizen Soldier?....except for a page count drop from 98 pages to 84?

Why should I fork out another $14.99 for this update?

Aren't previous purchasers valued?

Hi Mark,
Didn't see your post. 5150 Star Army Total Ware has smoother game mechanics which get you to the same result with less dice rolling. It does not cover Mechs and Vehicles. If you're happy with Citizen Soldier, I'd stay with it.

Thanks for the eventual response, but a lot of other publishers that update their products without any massive changes make them available as a free update for their previous loyal customers.
I really cannot justify buying anymore of your recent products, particularly as I have bought nearly all of your previous works......which saddens me.

See this is what I need to know. I appreciate you saying this. I have no idea about what other publishers do or even that that was an option. I like it. I do have a question. I posted yesterday and you knew about it. How did that happen? Is there a setting that I can use to know when comments are made? Or do I need to check on the site each day? Appreciate the help and feedback. Looking forward to more info.

I got sent an email showing your comment as I had the discussion set to "follow this discussion" with the tick box at the top of the discussions tab....hope that's helpful and makes sense.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
