Setting up a self practice game on my computer

Post by akshamu » Thu Mar 22, 2012 7:12 pm

I know I knew how to do this at one time, but that was before Windows and all the issues there, but I want to setup up practice games for myself against computer players, what do I need and how do I do it? Which computer player program should I use?

I'd copy your entire winplan folder to a new directory like c:\temp\plan1. From there just run Master.exe to master the game (may need to use Dosbox for this). Then run host.exe to generate the first RST files :wink:

Thanks Bitmask I will try a couple of them out.

Hawkeye I was thinking the same thing, but thanks for confirming the wisdom of the thought.
