Stronghold Crusader 2 Enters Closed Beta

Firefly Studios has just released the minimum system requirements for their long awaited ‘castle sim’ sequel Stronghold Crusader 2. Having entered closed Beta earlier this week, most of the remaining developing time on Crusader 2 will be spent optimizing the game’s performance on PC and tweaking gameplay. The announcement was made earlier today on the game’s official website.

“When we first announced Stronghold Crusader 2 one of the first pieces of information released was that the game will use a newly enhanced 3D engine. By this point the team was so experienced with the Havok Vision Engine that learning something completely new and moving away from 3D would be a waste of that knowledge. Our stated goal with Crusader 2 was to create the best 3D Stronghold game yet and that’s exactly what we intent to deliver.

Everyone here at Firefly wants the playability of the 2D Stronghold titles within a 3D space and our enhanced version of the Vision Engine has thankfully provided us with the tools needed to achieve this. Naturally a concern for players at the time was ‘Will the game run on my machine?’. This is a fair question and of course we are aiming to get the game running on a wide range of systems, performance being just as high on our list of priorities as bug fixing. With the game currently in beta and as such feature-complete, we have already had time to focus on optimization and performance testing. As a result, we have been able to determine the minimum system requirements for Stronghold Crusader 2:”

The minimum PC system requirements for Stronghold Crusader 2 are as follows:
• Operating System: Windows® XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8 (latest service packs) with DirectX 9.0c
• Processor: Intel Core2 Duo 2Ghz or equivalent
• Memory: 2GB RAM
• Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800GT 512MB or AMD Radeon™ HD 2900XT 512MB or better
• Storage: 6 GB available HD space
• Internet: Broadband Internet connection
The latest entry in Firefly’s best-selling series of medieval real-time strategy games, Stronghold Crusader 2 is set to appear online and in store shelves on September 2nd 2014.

iGear Rebrands as üuber

iGear Rebrands as üuber

iGear Rebrands as üuber

Effective immediately, iGear will now be referred to as üuber. The name change is to help reflect the company’s growth into the tech superstore it has become. üuber will still provide the Apple device cases that were the foundation of the company, such as the iPad Slim Tough Case and the iPad Flip Turn Keyboard case. üuber is also looking to the future with the pending launch of more new and exciting products such as cases for Chrome books and innovative school gear.

One of their first cases developed, the Slim Tough Case for iPad is still a powerhouse. üuber STC case features a multi-layer construction using an inner hard case, outer rubber skin, and a built-in screen protector. The new G4 case for iPad Air features extra padding around all corners, improved scratch resistance on the screen protector, additional stands for propping the iPad at a low typing angle in any orientation, and a thin-profile that fits nicely in Bretford and other charging carts.

A newer addition to their lineup, the Flip Turn case has been a runaway hit. The flip turn mechanism is arguably one of the most versatile on the market. It performs acrobatic tricks on the iPad, allowing it to be used as a tablet, a laptop, or movie player. By simply opening the case, the iPad wakes up and goes into laptop mode, tilting the screen at a comfortable angle for typing. When turned 180 degrees, the keyboard base becomes a stand, turning the iPad into a beautiful presentation device. Folding the case completely flat hides the keyboard, and the iPad becomes a standard tablet. The tension closure system also keeps the iPad closed when not in use, with an auto wake/sleep smart cover design to conserve battery.

Revocharge™, Universal Wireless Charging Case, Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Revocharge, the makers of the world’s most powerful and versatile wireless charging smartphone case, is excited to announce the launch of its Kickstarter campaign, aimed at raising $100,000 by July 26th, 2014. The money raised through Kickstarter will cover the costs of production and manufacturing, and will also help introduce new audiences to the full-speed sync-and-charge smartphone case, which is initially designed for iPhone 5/5S and Samsung S4/S5’s.

“Revocharge is designed to make mobile phones truly mobile. It gives you the power to charge and sync anywhere, and everywhere, without the use of cords,” said Revocharge founder Cemal Samsilova. “But it’s going to take a lot of support to bring this wireless charging marvel to the market and let wider audiences enjoy the power of true mobility.”

Through Kickstarter, the company is looking to raise enough money to turn their prototype – which is eligible to receive its complete MFI (made for iPhone) licensing approval upon submission of its samples to Apple – into a reality. Early supporters of the Revocharge Kickstarter campaign will enjoy benefits and rewards for their support, including 50% off the Revocharge iPhone 5/5S and the upcoming iPhone 6 wireless charging mobile case and universal battery, for a pledge of $50 or more. Early backers can also pledge as little as $5 to receive special discounts on the company’s product line.

Revocharge is a full-speed wireless charging smartphone case initially designed for iPhone 5/5S and Samsung S4/S5. The company intends on expanding its portfolio to include iPads and other phone models. In fact, as part of its initial Kickstarter campaign, Revocharge is offering an Empowered Package for early backers with up to $80 OFF for iPhone 5S Mobile Case + Universal Battery + iPhone 6 Case with matching Universal Battery (iPhone 6 will ship 3 months after release date) for pledges of $120 or more. This will allow early backers to prepare for the yet-to-be-released latest iPhone model!

Revocharge features a patent-pending universal mount that can be affixed to a car mount, desk mount, armband, or belt clip through the use of earth magnets and/or locking structure. In the future, the company intends on adding a bike mount, universal key charger with Bluetooth locator among other products. Unlike other wireless charging devices on the market, Revocharge features Autosense technology, making it capable of providing a full charge – regardless of the smartphone, as well as a direct pin-to-ring conductive charge, meaning no loss of heat or energy during the charging process.

The Revocharge battery simply snaps onto the back of the case, providing enough direct power for a full charge. The battery can then be removed, recharged, and replaced, providing users a constant flow of energy without having to carry cables or cords.

Revocharge is ultra-thin yet extremely durable, measuring in at 13.4mm thick. The easy to access micro USB port provides a simple option for syncing data and music from a user’s desk mount.
