Re: spacelord

It looks like the batch file was copying stale turns and RSTs because there was no pause built in to wait for spacelord to make turns for all races or for new RSTs to be generated before copying in and out of VPWORK1

Spacelrd not building

Hi. I've run several games with spacelrd playing 10of the races and after about 4 to 8 ships each race that spacelrd plays quits building ships. I'm currently playing the crystals. I've looked at the RSTs and there was plenty of stuff on the spacelrd bases to build with. Is this a common problem?

I think I got it figured out. Host replaces TRN files with RSTs when I run it in my Plan1 directory. I started holding copies of RSTs each turn in a separate file as back ups and haven't had a problem since. I think I was grabbing the RST files before they were all completely written and the act of ...

I've played several rounds and on about turn 5 Spacelord begins to skip turns. For instance it just skipped turns for races 7, 8, 9, 11. On a previous game it quit making player 4 and higher turns. Any ideas?

Thanks

Thanks for the info. I downloaded Spacelord but the instructions simply say I need to invoke it using for example... spacelrd game1 /123456789b ... I take it that means to write a batch file calling the spacelrd.exe with those parameters. I haven't written a batch file for years add could use a hand...

I tried theQ but I could only get the shareware version with 4 races. The contact site listed here hasn't been used for a long time. It a...

I'd be in for that. I've recently joined and can not play in most games due to rank although I played VGAP years ago so know my way around a bit.
