I can't seem to get to configure. I made it this far:
Is there supposed to be a configure button somewhere ? Or am I way off base ?
Are you guys using the latest pre-release to connect to the lobby, or actually trying to connect to the prerelease lobby? The latter is not automatic, unless you're configuring it, it would be the former that you're attempting.
Speaking for myself, "actually trying" was what I was attempting. Unfortunately, Idk how todo the configure thing, but I'm not gonna give up on it
I can connect to 13066 lobby. It seems to have no effect as far as trying to join the pre release one that I can tell. I'm guessing it takes more than just dling the pre release to make the configure thing work
@redrum is the mono fighter historic or a what if ? I didn't think there were any.
Ok I checked and
Never knew that. I learned something today Snoopy and the Red Baron was what I remember lol
@Windrunner21 right on ! There are a lot of helpful people here. What type of map do you have in mind ?
@Windrunner21 well do you have triplea downloaded so you can check out all the maps ? If not, you can do that here:
Then search through the maps and pick one you like. Also dl "Pact of Steel2" as that tells you how the game works. Once downloaded go to your triplea folder, downloaded maps. Open up POS2 and keep opening until you see "games".
Open that and then open the POS2 xml with whatever editor you like. Most people use notepad++ if on windows. I don't know much about the graphics part.
Here it is for easy access. It will probably take several readings to get the general idea. Once you pick a map to mod, start small with changing a unit cost or a game note and just kinda go from there.
There's a lot more to it, but if you enjoy learning and are patient, you'll figure it out. Most likely a lengthy process unless you end up as some sort of triplea savant.
Hi Windrunner welcome to the site. There has been some recent discussion here:
As others have said, the best approach is to find a current map that is similar to what you want to do and begin modifying it before making one from scratch.
ok well i didn't really understand the answer. So my understanding is, there is no pre release lobby at the moment but sometimes, in the past, there was and may be in the future.
I saw something on git that made it sound as if the new stable was coming out soon and saw something here where I thought someone said a lot of people are in the pre release lobby. So that's why I tried to join.
Anyway, I just like to check in and check attendance and what games are being played. Attendance seems down lately so I thought maybe some were on the new lobby. Maybe it historically goes down in summer for the northern hemisphere ? Idk. Until recently I wasn't around in summer.
Anyway thanks for the replies : )
Trying to join the pre release lobby. I can't remember how I did it last time. Here's what I get:
At first I got an error that said something about java 11 so I installed that. I still have java 8 installed as well. I can join the old lobby and local mode works for the pre release.
I'll do some more searching. Just throwing it out there in case it's something simple : )
