Very nicely done, ty :D Great to know that the developers had just as much fun creating the game as we have playing and modding it :p

Thank you very much McBenn, comments motivate me to do even more and I admit I was a bit worried that nobody posted in this topic. But also I got lots on feedbacks on Discord and this at least made my work feel more justified and fun :P

Modding is truly amazing especially with SGUI which introduces LUA to the game, and abilities to mod the game in a crazy way. I'd like to thank you again for your SAIL tutorial on OWS which, when I was only ~14 years old, introduced me to my first steps ever of coding stuff.

Nowadays, thanks to your guide and my evolution, I have been able to learn and understand how delphi globally works (and LUA thanks to SGUI) and that makes me able to work on my projects in a dimension I never thought was possible on my end. Currently making a remake of Sid Meier's Colonization (1994) using LUA, which is attached to Original War as a mod but is also fully exportable to an independent app. I don't call myself a professional coder in any way but it is thanks to your dedication that I first started to get interest in this crazy world :)

It's always nice to know what you do is appreciated :) It must have taken quite some time and effort to make contact to the creators, then interview them and then put the video together.

You're very welcome for the tutorial :amhello: but sounds like you have come far on your own since then. And just because you are not a professional coder doesn't mean you aren't capable. Several of the people I work with don't have a formal education and they do just as fine as everyone else. It's the devotion that counts :P
And btw, on that subject. If you talk to the developers of OW again sometime, you can thank them for inspiring a new generation of modders and programmers - it's thanks to OW that I ended up a programmer instead of a physicist or mathematician :arhello:
