Just poking fun at Canadians Mike. Eastern Canadians tend to pronounce bout more like boat. We, as in your Southern neighbors, would mimic them in jest with "oat and aboat in a boat" for out and about in a boat.
Back to games.

I'm familiar with the meme, but seriously, I've spent weeks in the east during summer courses and have several friends from Ontario - I've never heard anyone pronounce it like that except in skits on (American) TV.Just poking fun at Canadians Mike.

If you're saying you've actually heard it, you have been exposed to a piece of Canadiana that ironically I have not - colour me jealous!Could be more of a rural thing like our rednecks. I grew up near Detroit in a factory town where a lot of the workers came over from Windsor every day. Or got green cards and lived in the US.
My parents had a friend who was Scot Canadiian that talked fast and you couldn't understand half of what he said.
Well I can say with some confidence that I have no trouble understanding Scots!Most of the time that I was around him, it was my parents, him and his girlfriend, playing cards and drinking. As the night went on, it became even more difficult to understand him.
Last Halloween a Los Angeles talk radio host of Scot Canadian decent, read a version of Jekyll and Hyde. Between the brogue and the old English words it was beautiful.
Just as an update....a PzC:O coder posted this at Matrix:I have to seriously doubt that PCO is even on the radar at BFC. There has been no public mention of the game there, and even when the first two releases were at their height of popularity, how many people did the official forums draw? 20?
Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Panzer Command and have volunteered for the beta test team because I think it will be a viable alternative to the new CMX2 game engine for those who enjoyed the "abstract" model of CMX1. But PzC:O is going to be a free download - and certainly no threat to BFC.
Does anyone seriously believe anyone - least of all BFC - would see it as a threat?
It's a ridiculous notion. I plan on owning both games and hope that I will enjoy both of them. I also hope both game series continue to flourish.
It's laughable to think that BFC is worried in the least - or even watching what Matrix is doing - unless you have evidence to present to the contrary?
An interesting set of comments given they are coming from someone connected strongly with the PzC:O product.From what I have seen of CMBN in videos and read in AARs, I don't think there is any real point comparing the two games anymore.
Sure, they both play very differently, but that is perhaps not the point. One game clearly has had a lot of money invested on development of the code and graphical assets. The other has had exactly nothing ($0) spent on it, and sadly it shows. Now of course Matrix is giving away their game for free for the most part. I guess they really had to do this otherwise they would have been seen to be making money off the backs of a lot of volunteers hard work.
And boy did those boys work hard! I know! But still they all had day jobs, and work was done on an "interest only" ad-hoc fashion without any Matrix leadership input or a even a cohesive design plan.
Bottom line is if you are lucky enough to have money and time to play both, then great do that and enjoy. But if, as I suspect, most of us only have time (or money) to devote to one game "system", I strongly suspect you would be better off with CMBN.
All IMHO (as the coder of PCO).
