I get what you mean, but this game was supposed to be the next Napoleonic Wars, even if not set during the same time period or made for M&B. I do want Battle Cry of Freedom to 1. release, and 2. succeed. I also hope that it has a great character creation editor to work with, as I found it quite fun to work with on Mount and Blade.

I understand and empathise with the general point you are making, but you don't have to pay much to get access to the developer sub forum (aka any screenshots or info). Below I've cut and pasted what the first donation tier is and what it gets you:

Any Donation
Exclusive access to a special Sub Forum where you can actively take part in the development.


The next tier after that is 5 Euros (you get a thank you and a wallpaper), so 'any donation' could be a single Euro (or theoretically less, I suppose).

You can find the page the above quote was taken from in this link: https://www.fsegames.eu/donations.php

EDIT: I should also add, there haven't been any updates this year even in the donator board. There is a thread of screenshots and stuff called The Developer Shack to look through with plenty of stuff from early 2013 onwards, but the last update in it was in early December. So don't go expecting regular goodies in return for your money.

WHat Olafson stated a number of times, is that most of the stuff they do is boring coding, which doesn't exactly show anything but...well... code. You wouldn't even know how to make an update of it.

I disagree with that standpoint, but then again, we can't force them to.
Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.
