I would like to point out that recently, I have been told that there has been a new version of RBT released as version 1.0.4. I do not know much, but after looking around, I found this page which is a download for RBT, but it is version 1.0.4. I am wondering if it is a bootleg version of rbt, or an official new version. As far as I know, the latest official version of RBT is 1.0.2. I also found that on some crack sites, there are "patches" for this game. It is a bit suspicious IMHO... :?

That's Reflexive's version of the game. I think it's a 60 minutes trail, and the webpage button on the mainmenu is gone. I recognized this earlier this summer, and yes, it was version 1.0.4 back then too.

Ok, got that settled. Now, does LDA know about this, and if yes, did they authorize it? And then, if LDA's 1.0.2 is still buggy and Reflexive's 1.0.4, then wouldn't LDA's version be obsolete? Then this raises the question... who fixed the bugs, LDA or Reflexive? So many questions...

I remember I asked Jim about this... They gave Reflexive the right to sell the game or something, so it gotta be authorized. I believe it's basically the same version as LDA's currently release, aka v1.0.2, so I guess Rerflexive will recieve updates from LDA whenever there are some...

Yeah... but there is one last final question on my mind. Their version is 1.0.4, and the bugs that 1.0.2 has have been fixed. Now I am curious, did LDA fix those bugs, or did someone else fix them instead? Rick, do you know the answer to this? :?:

Meh.. I don't care. RBT 1.0.5 should be out when they've finished Hegemony...

I don't know if this is an issue or not but I bought RBT off of the Reflexive arcade site and the expansion pack for RBT won't install . So far I have not recieved any response from LDA about this .

As I have said before, it seems peculiar... we are still waiting on LDA for some clarification... I think.

RBT is a great game...

Jim of LDA games helped me out on the expansion pack installation whereas I had to install the LDA version to install it . I don't know if it was me doing something wrong or the reflexive arcade version of RBT would'nt accept the expansion pack . In any case I was helped out with my situation fast by LDA support . :D

Yeah, we released RBT through Reflexive a while back (we occasionally do these sorts of partnerships -- we recently released a U3 version of DX-Ball 2).

For the most part, the reason the version number is higher is because we had to make a few changes to customize it for Reflexive.

I see. Will there be any changes to the normal LDA version to fix those bugs? Thanks for the response. It clears things up. ^_^

Maybe if and when we get to releasing a new update, but like I said, there's really not much that was done to it other than customizing it for Reflexive.
