Whilst it's probably a little late for the initial costs I am willing to help financially in the future for forum support.

Thank you. That's great to hear!
We will be setting up a Patreon after launch.
For any and all voluntary contributions.

It's coming! I cannot say when, but there has been a lot of progress on the new forum and an initial / first iteration should be ready soon.

Yes Sorry. We should update more.
But it's a lot of stuff to look into. 1 option failed.
And we want to do it right. Cause we only have a small budget from the 9 of us to start with.

Admin email accounts are being set up. Voluntary support financial channel is to follow.

I’m curious if anything was setup elsewhere?

Seems TT still isn’t interested in supporting a forum or online community and the game seems dead here in he US (no distributors and every online company has all the DZC stuff on clearence). Bit bummed since I spent a decent bit of coin right around the time Hawk went belly up and haven’t used squat but the basic stuff.

Hi There,

I am part of the crew working on getting a new forum.
TTC is willing to support us in that. They put alot of effort into getting control over this forum. Which I heard 3 weeks ago now. They have been quite busy with other priorities. Just know that we are on it!

As to the distribution in the USA. I know that there's a new one. Donald JR Roach posted it on the DZC &DFC groups

There's no news.

We formed a group consisting of players and ex Talons early this year to continue with a forum. Initial enquiries about taking over this existing forum hit a brick wall so we agreed to set up a new one and raised funds.

We tried one hosting company and started a trial but it didn't work out as that company gave poor service IMHO and we cancelled that account before launching anything.

I tried to setup phpBB code as a test forum on my home PC and got stuck on technical issues, then I got busy with real life and a new job. Eventually I solved the issues with some help only to find out from our group leader that the original admin of this forum has agreed to hand it over. Good news!

I've been waiting on further news for the last few weeks. Hope it happens soon so we can get stuck into using this forum more actively again.

Cheers,
Sword
