Randmax etc Experimental Game?

Post by Gilgamesh » Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:00 am

Hi.

Would anyone be interested in a NF style Thost game that would only run around 30 turns or so for the purpose of experimenting with Randmax (or any other utility/feature you may be curious about) in a game where the outcome doesn't really matter?

][avok and BM - if enough people are interested, would you be willing to set something like that up, please?

why not just host yourself?

If there is an interest, then we can create it.
Else I can create a Test game for you with a batch file that you can run on your own PC playing against computer players.

Thanks BM! Actually that is another question - I used to be able to create test games but I forget how I did it all those years ago. Pointers would be welome. Thanks!

master.exe and hconfig.exe once, then host.exe when the trn files are in the same directory.

Check this out. I made it even easier with testing scenarios that you can use.
