@zlefin I resemble this comment! I have always assumed there were differences in the AI types and actually set the maps based on this assumption. So for instance while fighting the Axis I might set the Italians to Fast and Minor Axis to Easy with Germany as Hard.
Since it is allowing a level accessibility via a drop down menu where the top says Easy and the Bottom says hard, the middle option which says Fast naturally would invoke a user type of intuition to think these are level settings and this is the medium setting in between the two. It's designed in such a way for the end user to think this way. If that's not the intent then change it, because there have to be dozens of us still out there playing! =p
Been playing the game for years on my old 17" MBP which is locked into OS 10.6.8. I stopped playing TripleA last couple years because the engine was so old and only one or two maps worked. Fast forward to the future (Feb 2021) and I get a new 16" MBP and download all the latest from TripleA.
@silverbullet I would suggest the Anniversary Edition. It is reasonably well balanced and it is simpler and faster playing than the Global Game. If you are not experienced with the game, try the 1941 game to learn the system (or just play TripleA)
Regular nwo probably doesn't need a bid. At least it doesn't at high skill levels per the history of ladder games tuning it. It's possible it does at more medium skill levels. It's also possible there's some key move patterns or choices that aren't being utilized which would fix the issue, and that not enough of the good nwo players are still around to copy from.
I don't know about 5-nations at all, as I'm not sure it was ever subject to tight balance tuning.
Of course part of the point of a bid system is that you can use it regardless of others' opinions on the matter, and simply bid to find something that seems fair to both sides.
@cernel I was tempted to create a 'pull' list of maps that should be pulled. It is easier to instead to remove those maps. We do have categories after all though to mark which maps are still works in progress.
Hi @ebbe glad you got working. If you want to rename your repo, go to your repo and hit settings top right and it'll give you the option. Then just dust all the edition stuff as cernel suggested and just use version updates for the future.
Probably just wait until 3rd edition comes out since you're up and running. : )
@rainova So, can that be made so that is the default everyone gets when installing TripleA and maybe adding a line to "vmoptions" or something to set it true if preferred? @LaFayette May I relay that to you?
@torpedoa Are you sure you want to have a 1v1 game in the first place? This seems a game that, realistically, has to be more than two-sided (and arguably it should be a FFA). It not like there is something like "Roma" and everything else is fighting against it only.
I think i have to explain to myself that the charioteer is just too much additional weight to be able to scramble together with the chariot then. Because the chariot unit is not empty to begin with. lol
I think i can live with that. Sounds reasonable. Dont you think?
