Another pause?

Post#1 » Mon Jan 21, 2013 6:12 am

I'm somewhat loathe to do this, especially since we just had a pause-- but the laptop I use to play VGA Planets isn't working. I can hear it spinning up and booting; the start up sound goes, but the screen looks like it burnt itself out. I tried connecting it to an external monitor but without an installation of software first, that refuses to work too. I'm willing to miss a few turns if everyone else doesn't want to pause, especially considering I'm in last place anyway-- but if people are willing to wait, I'd appreciate it.

I'm taking it in to the dealer tomorrow; hopefully they can solve the issue within the week. =P

If you haven't already, you need to email ][avok and / or bitmask to let them know you need a pause.

We are looking at 12 hours or so to game run, so I will email on your behalf, just in case you haven't.

I'd like to avoid the pause, if possible, I tend to get really disoriented by those, and the turns after picking up again take three times as long.

If it works for you, I'd assume Donovan would agree not to intercept/attack your ships this turn if it means that host is running.

Actually, most of my ships are clear of Donovan. My main concern is the Q continuum, which seems to be doing everything in its suspicious bag of tricks to capture my meteors.

Can we get the game unstalled now that Jonny has his turn in...? :?
