This is kinda neat. I rented a Panzer IV that had a C-unit with support capability, and am towing it around. Now it sometimes shoots down enemy attacks :D

Is there any fanart for this game? Particularly of the magnificent tank lady? >_>

I'm having a bug after beating Noah. Basically, when the screen turns white and he says "Is this my downfall?" the second time, a new box shows up with the letter "i" in it and then the game freezes.

I almost panicked right there. D:

You just have to wait a bit more, and the cutscene will continue.

PS: I'm missing one of the six downloadable BS-Con programs. I've got Level, Signal, Escape, Guide and Laser. Also, what does the Signal program do?

With the Noah thing, it looks like one of the last things we fixed before releasing broke it again. ;) It'll be fixed in the next patch... you're not missing anything but a corruption of the line before that, and it shouldn't lock up entirely.  (Didn't for me, at least... Is it for you?)

I think the Signal program is supposed to help you track bosses that might run away from you -- you throw the transmitter at them and then you can see where they are. But I always missed, to be honest.

And you're missing the Rental one.

Hm.

The soldier from MM2; I think they look very similar, although I haven't played MM2 and have no idea how the personality translates. There's more MM2 pictures on the Crea Tech site too.

I think that's based off of MM2, but what the hell ,she's cute.

Also probably based off of MM2, but, again, what the hell. ;)

Ye can toss signal beacons onto enemies and the signal will track it, displayin' what area the traced target is in on the world map. I've only tossed it onto bounties, dun seem to let ye resume any progress ye made against them if ye bail. Might be useable for weekly hunt enemies and trackin' their groups, though, that's just speculation..

Edit: Wootz. Though, the first three give me what I assume to be "Don't link to these" messages.

The first three links return a 403 error. =(

Oh, also, a couple of bugs I noticed:

- When using the Dog System and putting the cursor over the Broadcast Tower number icon, the text itself on the lower portion of the screen isn't centered, and ovelaps the right edge of the box.

- When checking the latest news in the bounty hunter office, the text messed up a bit on a couple of occasions, making lines overlap and letters exceed the box.

Drat.. to see the first three, then, go to http://retrogames.jog.buttobi.net/ and on the left frame, click on the symbol that's seven down, four to the right. Should be me02.html. Then scroll down to find Metal Max. There are a couple others, too, but those were my favorites. ;)

The one in Pobre Obre with Dr Rafflesia we found, which other ones have you seen?

Ack, sorry, I don't remember. >_<

I already killed most of them, so I can't check again...

That's OK, either someone will point it out or I'll check. I started a new game with the full knowledge of how the weekly bounties work. 10K before beating the cannons, good times. :D

Oh, one more thing, a minor detail coming from a sort-of military buff: the acronym ATM for 'Anti-Tank Missile' isn't the one used. The right one is ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missile). Perhaps to differentiate from cash machines, I don't know. =P

Haha, thanks, I'll take details of that sort gladly. I'm not at all a tank / military buff, actually, so I'm sure there are other things like that that aren't quite right.

I'll double-check some stuff. There's the shell department: for example, the Blast Shell would be a HEAT (High Explosive Anti-Tank) round, whereas the Piercing Shell would be an APFSDS (Armour-Piercing Fin-Stabilised Discarding Sabot) one, but it's best to keep the terms as basic as possible for the average gamer to understand. ^^;

Besides, I'm sure those complicated terms got lost in time after the fall of civilization. And by the way, what happens if you donate money to the school in Pobre Obre? And what if you donate a LOT (i.e. 400K)? =P

At 1000 you get a statue of yourself out front; I don't think there's anything else. Maria doesn't get anything else to say, for example. One funny thing about that -- I think it's tied to the number of bounties, but the further along you go, the more money she'll accept from you at one time. I get the same feeling from her as I do from Hunter's father... "You don't want this thousand gold? Fine, little Euro looks hungry..."
