Re: Vote to end Game

Note to add: although this game hasn't gone very well for me, I really like the concept of these cluster games, had a lot of fun in the first version (in which I played the Cylons a.k.a. Robots BTW) and will definitely encourage the host(s) to start more of these games in the future. However, I do t...

Re: Vote to end Game

I won't QUIT the game and will keep playing as long as the game continues (or I get killed off), but I agree it's pretty much finished and getting a bit of a drag. So I don't mind calling it quits.

Game has stalled

Please note that this game has been temporarily frozen because technical difficulties occurred during the last turn. You can expect a more detailed announcement from ][avok soon, but I figured that in the meantime I'd inform those who hadn't noticed yet that the game has stalled.

Thanks everyone

Well, it looks like the hammer fell after all: we're going to call it quits. That's quite alright, I think the outcome of this game has been more or less settled anyway. Since perhaps not everybody will look at their last RST I figured a forum message would be more appropriate to thank everyone for ...

Re: Hotmail not sending to CM

I don't know whether this helps at all, but... Sometimes, when a bona fide domain gets abused for spamming purposes, it gets temporarily blacklisted (some blacklisters are rather zealous in their efforts) until the domain owner either fixes the technical vulnerability that made the abuse possible or...

Re: Server Status

I think what you meant to say was "thank you ][avok for all the hard work and great things you do for us". Yeah, that too :cylonclap: With the demise of vgaplanets.dk and (the hosting part of) RCWorld this is one of only preciously few places that still offer(s?) reliable VGAP hosting for a large u...

Re: Server Status

I think there are errors in the algorithm auto-troll. Sure, AutoTroll is known to occasionally fail. However, as far as I know our beloved hosts didn't actually create (or are developing) AutoTroll. They just use it. If there are errors in AutoTroll itself, it's probably not something they can read...

Re: Server Status

why so long this time? why it is impossible to solve this problem so that this will never happen again? If I understand ][avok correctly, he's currently out of town and the server can not be fixed remotely. What's more, there's no such thing as "can never happen again". If the computer gets turned ...

Re: Server Status

Will hosting be delayed for a short while after the server comes back up if there are turns missing? I know it's a bad habit, but I've come to rely on the "Missing turn" emails so I may be missing a turn in one game that had the next host run scheduled for tonight but for which I didn't get the remi...

Re: Tool to export messages in MDATAn.DAT

I'm not 100% certain, but I think PCC might be able to do this, too.

Re: New Guy

Welcome back! :cylonclap: I myself returned to VGAP a few years ago after a long period of absence. As already said by others, this is probably the place to be at the moment, with vgaplanets.dk being "definitely deceased" (to quote Monty Python) and rcworld.de having stopped hosting. The No Frills g...

Re: planets 4..question

For what it's worth: last I heard VGAP 4 is still going to be Windows only, so that probably rules me out because I don't do Windows (and Wine isn't exactly ideal either). However, if you wish to host a VGAP 4 game that would of course be perfectly fine, so I quite sincerely wish you good luck with ...

Re: One more Cplayer

well, I am dead, no ships-no planets-no nothing and I fought to the end, great game :D :D :D Sorry to hear that and better luck next time (No Frills 120 perhaps :wink:). However, I'm inclined to ask that you either submit a token TRN (even if it's just UNPACK, MAKETURN, send), drop out or ask the h...

I too came back to VGAP after a hiatus of 10+ years. It can be done, nudge nudge wink wink :wink:
