Is it ever going to happen that kixeye will drop flash and make client base game which actually can take advantage of modern computers?

I have went into hibernation in hopes something will happen

    Flash is still very much in use by everyone not on mobiles/tablets, it is far from a dead format atm.

    But who knows what the future may bring.

    The future may bring ultra fluffy unicorn rainbow engines! C: 
    Now to be serious, Flash is used in virtually every game that has "movement". So, flash is far from dead.

    There is lot of bigger and more demanding games and they all run and war commander has way too much lag issues and other problems. If it is not flash then what is it?

    That's funny, because I almost never see lag on War Commander running on two old laptops.

    Forum banned by a hypocrite at Kixeye.

    then i dunno. I can play on my gaming pc though my 1 mega internet is not enough but with my 10 mega internet works ok (either home in city or at countryside where i get internet with telephone line). My laptop has i3 m330 processor and it can not run war commander even if i changed windows and had latest flash as only program. Was just assuming my gaming pc runs this game on brute force.

    game doesn't load up on my laptop, menus take 20-30 seconds to highlight and same to do something else there. Just a mess. 

    Care to share some tips to make this game run on laptop where is fresh windows with just flash and no other crap. i3 330M with 2.13ghz should be able to run it well. 4gb ram 64 bit windows.

    Kixeye doesn't develop client based games. They were formed to pioneer browser based gaming, they did, and that's what gives them the edge over all competition in that market. Kixeye is not going to risk their lead by moving resources to client based development. I'm working on a Silverlight/XNA 4.0 based Game/RPG engine which is guaranteed to outperform flash like gangbusters and Kixeye is going to buy me out in order to keep their lead in the market.

    on Silverlight... that's rather a restricted market, even more so than Flash.

    We are always hiring, check the careers page ;)

    Silverlight really isn't more restricted than Flash if you think about it. If someone tries to play a game that needs a Flash update, they click the link and install the update. Exactly the same deal with Silverlight. Silverlight is just new and not widely adopted yet so people haven't needed to download it yet.

    On working with Kixeye, is working from abroad an option or is relocation necessary?

    If you are the right person then it may not be an obstacle, worth trying though.

    Nice. I'm not entirely against relocating, but in all honesty, California freaks me out, LOL.
