Interesting thought. Once Inferno: Alliance is stand alone, Alliance, Pt. 2 could simply be dropped in to it as a mod.
That's the plan...

Ah, but it's out already. So it's not in that race, is it. Now INF:A-SA could be put in the race, but there's not much point. It really doesn't require nearly as much as it might in order to make INF:A stand alone from a released campaign as it might to make it from scratch.

INFASA will be released with a remake of the INFA campaign released in late 2006 and by remake I mean "with radical changes in all missions".

I'm not sure people are as excited by INFA as INF SCP, since it feels like it's just a prelude to the main event.

IMHO INFA campaigns are much more than a prelude to INF SCP. They're connected to the main INF SCP campaigns but not in a way that turns them into preludes and nothing more.

No doubt INF SCP is the main but INFA is, IMO, good enough to have some consideration.

And nope, it's not a pure prequel. There's a gap of several decades between INFA and INF SCP and the two campaigns aren't about the same things. You have a prequel when the time gap, the technologies and the environments are similar.

Let your pride go and let yourself see the light.

This is an odd thing to say.

While I agree that INF:SCP is the main event, I think that INFA is far more than the BWO demo was. I eagerly anticipate INFASA, since I believe that Mobius is a talented FREDder. It's almost certain that it'll be better than INFR1, for example.

Thanks for the compliment...I think there's a lot of confusion about what INFA really is. That's why there's a stickied thread about acronyms...

Well I don't think the BWO demo is nearly as large as INFA is going to be

Still, I don't get the "side stories to the main event" thing. As I said INFA is far enough from INF SCP to be much more than a prequel...

But the thing is that nobody cares about what happens in INFA:SA nearly as much as they care about INF SCP.

personally one of my favorite mod is SAH and it is parallel version off INFA so INFA for me is good for known the history of EA and how the Terran become a military dictatorial government

So INFA will be cool, less epic, but cool  :D

Why do you think it will be less epic? I'm almost certain that INFASA will be more epic than SAH. Though SAH, of course, won't die out because of that.

I think Blaise Russel claimed that he would create a remake of S:AH compatible with INF SCP in the future...S:AH won't die... :)

Maybe if we are very lucky, INFA can be released around Christmas.
If I finish m8, it's possible. :rolleyes:

Ah ok...but INFA isn't crap, it's a worth INF mod...shouldn't it deserve more consideration?


It does but the original INF R1 came out several years ago, and so there has been a lot of anticipation that has been building for much longer.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Well, FRED kept crashing, so to get around that, I went and corrupted the mission in Notepad. Genius!
