Fall Festival of Death 3?

The constant spinning, rampant ion storms, daily meteor strikes, and fear of what magic power that planet might have. Nobody to help you and every one wanting to kill you. Oh yeah, those were the days.

Re: ion storm

If you like ion storms, try the next Fall Festival of Death. This game had way more than the average amount of Storms. As Robot, I was OK with it. It was the only way to get Lizard out my new planets (his old ones). Oddly for the whole game, no storm crossed the Privateer home planets. I was waiting...

Re: No Frills 109, Game Over Reports

I covered the southern hemisphere, but I have no idea what happened in the northern. Someone please enlighten me.
For example; who was allied with whom? Other than a single Federation Virgo, I saw no alliance action.

No Frills 109, Game Over Reports

No Frills 109, Game 336 Review This was my first game playing Borg. Usually this slot is claimed quickly, so I was surprised to see it open. I signed up without hesitation despite already being in two other games that were using up far too much of my free time. On turn 1, I was pleased with my place...

Re: No Frills 109: Early end - Please vote

Ssavage,
That Anni was my only combat ship loss that I remember. You also captured (or recaptured) more Borg planet than anyone else. Well played to you too.

To close the vote and avoid a futile delay, I am willing to change my No vote to Yes, to get a majority Yes vote.

Super Tech.

Re: No Frills 109: Early end - Please vote

Please sure to ask for game end vote with an in game message.
Some players do not see the forum posts.

I will start writing my game review and highlight how I made about 50 cubes (most transwarp drive).
This is my first time as Borg.

Re: VPA and (DosBox) batch files

Did you get message errors in Fed War 2? That is the only time I have seen them.
Did c2unpack fix that?

Re: VPA and (DosBox) batch files

Fire Age, Why doesn't UFO4VPA run? Does it give an error? How do you call it? May I suggest putting the complex code in one file used by all games. Also, one .conf file can be used for all games. Then I have many simple batch files for each game. This makes development modular Here is my example. Fo...

Re: Geting VPA to use WINPLAN registration.

Thanks for the idea and information I had to put c2mkturn.exe outside of DosBox instead of inside. I have VPA doing the unpack, but see no reason to change that. I tested this on my completed game and all is well. Version 3.50 Client Detected Windows Client Reports OK, Player: 9 34 commands PLAYER:=...

Geting VPA to use WINPLAN registration.

I bought a registered copy of DOS_PLAN and WINPLAN many years ago. When VPA makes my turns, it uses the DOS registration so I'm limited to 50 targets unless my ally has WINPLAN RST. I'd like to get WINPLAN RST files for my RST. I believe I can replace one DOSPLAN file (not sure which one) with an un...

Re: Game over man, Game over!

Option could be to cancel the Biocide. That way everyone is doing the torpedo dance. Let's remove the Thunder too, the baddest warship in the game. Just kidding, it costs a fortune to load fighters and I found that two Dark wings kill a Thunder. However that only happened once and on his terms. I c...

Re: Welcome to No Frills 109

By what system is the score based?
AScore?
ITAScore?
PTScore?
Something else?

Thanks!

Re: VPA 3.67 beta-4 has been released

It would be good if the colonize mission was not selectable by the "C" hot key. 99.9% of the time "C" is intended to be cloak request. It should also show up in the error check. If either of these are possible with the current version, please let me know.

Thanks!

Re: G334 FFofDeath Game end or delay.

Diamondback, I'm confused; if you wanted payback, why did you give me a free Virgo to complement my collection of MBR, SSD, and Gorbie's? With our relative space positions the spin is advantage Robots. :twisted: But seriously, we have three votes for ending; Robots, Fed, Lizard. Two votes (Robot, Co...

G334 FFofDeath Game end or delay.

It has been a very interesting game with the rampant ion storms and planet spinning. However, I'm getting a little dizzy. Anyone want to vote to end the game (with me as winner, of course)? If not, how about a game pause during the 2nd half of June (15-30)? I'm open to a smaller pause too, if that w...
