I bought this and PE-2 Dive Bomber from Gamersgate and have a few suggestions regarding Direct Hit.

First of all, my hand is starting to hurt. I am unable to save and have to play a whole session in one sitting. What makes this worse is that there seems to be no shortcuts for most of the actions and also building a specific number of items (not maximum or up to 10) requires a lot fo mouse clicking.

I will add all suggestions from this thread to the suggestion topic.

Second thing is more of a bug report. If you build a relay station, you can then place batteries. Try to build a second relay station and batteries right away next to it. The batteries will finish first and the game will go into a slow crawl until the relay station is finished, since I think it tries to connect with it every cycle. This might need a bugfix.

Third, please allow saving, at least in singleplayer.

Fourth, if it is not possible to make the numeric fields editable, please make shortcuts on the keyboard for increasing and decrasing the number that should be produced, sold etc. Or allow holding down the mouse button to increase the number, so we don't have to click a lot.

Fifth, I just had a crash after a 2 hour game and wonder, are there error log files? I am really disappointed by that.

Sixth, I do not like the use of Securom, period. I am happy to support you, but not if this thing is the cause of issues. And it has been the cause of issues earlier in other games. Maybe you can decide to drop it in a late future patch as a customer benefit. That is up to you. I bought the two games, because I wanted to see them, liked the PE-2 demo and wanted to support you. However any DRM like Securom, Starforce and similar are usually a no go and the money could be rather spend on advertising or creating hype. Check what the new game starting with T did (I won't promote another game here).

My sys specs are
I5 3.3Ghz
Nvidia GTX 570
6GB RAM
Win 7 64bit

Thanks for reporting this, It has been fixed and will be delivered with the next patch. For now just build the substation first, and then build batteries.

Some more crashes and things I noticed:

If you select the same language that you are already in, in the options menu, it will lock up and stay at the selection that tells you to please wait.

The currency symbol is Yen. I read somewhere before that it should be dollar?

The music does stop looping for me in the campaign game at some point and it will never start again.

we have fixed the problem with the language's combo box, thanks again for reporting.
The Yen and Dollar signs stuff is not clear for me either, we changed that so many times during the development that I don't know what is the correct sign any more, we will look the design document to see what is mentioned there Smiley
Music loop stopping is very weird, the music is raw openAl without anything on top of it. maybe we have problems with its thread or some buffer on the sound card, which sound card do you have with which drivers. You might want to try to change the sound device from windows sound settings.
Thanks again for playing the game

Money in Direct Hit is Yen... Smiley I think this is more fresh solution in game then USD. Try to find a place where say about dollar, we need to fix that.

About music - we have only one in-game track so it play only one at dropship landing. We planning doing something with game music (add new tracks or connect music to some game events) in later patches.

Crashing on the 2nd map, usually around 1 hour into the map. Have tried the map twice and crashed twice. No point in continuing to try and play until the crashing issues are fixed......or a save featured is added (I know you are working on it).

I have been waiting far too long for a game like this,.......and now I have it and have to wait to play it..........if I seem irritated,...that is why Smiley

I know you are working on a save during battle feature and are working on fixing crashes,...either of which will make the game playable. If I could save, I could do it often enough that a crash wouldnt be so bad. Thats all been covered before though.

  My point now is that if somehow the save feature is working before you figure out the crashing issues, then please release a patch with it as soon as possible.  I really want to play the game.
