I see what you mean and I think we don't have a big dissent here at least regarding the consequences. I am not very happy with that FAQ-aspect that introduced the rule "You may only purchase as many units as you will have the ability to mobilize after making repairs to any damaged industrial complexes. The rules for returning excess units are intended only for inadvertent over-purchasing."
While the first sentence is a clear "law" the second sentence opens room for discussing the "human factor". Representing the latter in the TripleA engine appears to be pointless, IMHO.
@prastle Makes sense. I think anyone can go into a bot and take it over if someone is camping in it and not responding to texts because they are in another game or not present. I might suggest we post an add on message to the lobby that says if you can host please do and leave the bots for those that cant.
Hosting bots is not as difficult as it sounds. If I can do it, then I’m sure most people here can too. If you can Host a game on the Lobby, then you are almost there. Just needs a few tweaks to your router, a .bat file, a bit of patience and possible some help from a friendly Mod!
First you need to update your router settings and open more ports. You should already have port 3300 open. I opened 6 in all, 3300 to 3305 (one for your own Hosting and 5 for the Bots). There is a freeware program you can use: Simple Port Forwarding (see here http://www.simpleportforwarding.com/download ), which can help with the task. Follow the program instructions and open the required ports.
Once you’ve opened the ports, you need to download the latest Beta(Pre-Release) version of TripleA. This is located here https://github.com/triplea-game/triplea/releases/ . This can be installed in a different folder from your stable TripleA. It's is recommended that you keep the stable version for testing purposes between the two versions of TripleA. I used the 184.108.40.206.10245 version. It is in this new folder that the .bat files must be inserted.
Next is to create a .bat file. Using the attached .txt file as an example, edit the following asterisked sections:
SET PORT= **** (the number of the port)
SET BOT_NUMBER= *** (the number to identify the bot on the lobby, your choice)
.name=Bot%BOT_NUMBER%_ ***** (letters and/or numbers to identify the bot on the lobby, your choice. Mine is DKMart1)
.hostedBy= Bot%BOT_NUMBER%_***** (letters and/or numbers to identify the bot on the lobby, your choice. Mine is DKMart1)
.supportEmail=************** (your email so Mods know where to find you… )
Once you’ve finished editing, save the file with the .bat extension. You can call the file anything you wish (in my case DKMart1_bot_1.bat).
Repeat for the number of bots you wish to create.
Remember, SET PORT= must be different for each .bat file and correspond to the ports you have opened on your router!
Place the .bat files in the 220.127.116.11.10245 TripleA folder. If all goes to plan, when you click on the .bat file a command prompt window will open and attempt to load the bot to the server lobby. Open TripleA as usual (not the 18.104.22.168.10245 version), go to the lobby and marvel at the wonder of your work.
Any problems contact a Mod (@prastle). He’ll sort you out! LOL
@Steve-Wurzer username ban lifted, you should be able to log in as 'swurzer' again.
It was reported you were intentionally joining, leaving, and joining games again in order to delay or crash them. Regardless of the case, please be careful of this going forward and please be sure to install the latest TripleA version "22.214.171.124.13066" - available at: https://triplea-game.org/download/
@RogerCooper said in Can't Get the Debug Console to Display:
@LaFayette Toggling did not help
I confirm this problem. Debug/Show_Console does nothing, and this isn't fixing it (I suppose you or somebody should move this to GitHub, then, if not posting there in the first place).
@SilverBullet said in new players entering with multiple ghosts:
@beelee well i am sure it isnt on purpose, it does appear to happen upon entering the lobby, not as much as entering a room.
Yea i doubt it is. I think when I did it (had 3 beelees) lol was when I kept joining the game to be a different player because i didn't know how to do it. it was 10 years ago or so. I can't really remember
@RoiEX I'm using Windows 10, latest version, which is working perfectly.
However, your comment about the font made me remember that I altered the default Windows font with Winaero tweaker some time ago.
So I tried to reset to the original font, and voilá, the game launches without any problems and with the correct/legible font.
Thank you very much both for your help!
@SilverBullet said in Is there a ledger mod?:
@Cernel ... MP (military police), them guys are tough ...
P.S. if talking about a Moderator, a cap "m" means a Moderator a small m is a mod for a game.
Yea Jack Reacher types
@Hepps wow that almost sounded psycho lol. Anyways dude what thread are you trying to troll me on please because if you read the forum it was a belee troll post in the "Guide lines and feature requests" thread ... where only a few people can post because he's a modded troll (duh why??) and so Cernel then pwnt belee and moved my belee pwning post to "Taking your suggestions for a new UI" thread where we can now ez mock the troll so then we discovered there that we can't edit posts in that thread so thats where the actual topic of "being allowed to edit posts in a thread" was raised and so then Rolex shows up and called the "Guide lines and feature requests" thread as an Announcement thread and a special thread where he's now raising the issue of what things should be allowed in threads like non admin/mod posting allowed or being able to edit posts etc. with all of this resulting in people reading this forum's thread are like lolool look at these anal nerd trolls that think we want to be reading this dolt anal spam but anyways I totally gave some nice answer to Rolex about how he explained not allowing editting posts nicely and even gave him a Like and then he gets defensive roofl making people kind of figure that these constant mad nerds haveto abuse commands and threads and not allow editting only because they keep getting pwnt so ez on their other troll aliases and its really sad but funny to me
Hepps its called retention and ya I make aliaser trolls mad ez just read the thread wow care more hehe
SO EZ nub aliaser trolls. I tell yous they call me a meme on Star Wars my handle is YKO<!>AW5UM my clan is young knights of old -.-
