RE: Newbie questions re install & asynch games
I got some specs from him and they go something like this:
One machine is a G5 Powermac (!) that can only run up to OS10.5, and the other is a work machine that runs 10.6 - but can't be upgraded for work-related reasons. Therefore neither can run Java 8.
btw I would love to see a tablet version of TripleA someday! Or browser based. Just a fantasy - I have no idea of the money, time and technical hurdles involved.
Newbie questions re install & asynch games
Newbie questions here. I tried finding answers elsewhere before posting here.
Want to play asynchronously with a friend in a different time zone.
Intended to do PBEM. But he couldn't get the app to install. His machine / system is too old, unable to update further.
If we play online, are long, asynch games possible? I'm worried if one of us finishes a turn and logs out, we will lose the game. That is, it will become inactive or another person will take my friend's place or something like that. Years ago we played on play by email dot com's A&A game, it was great fun but sometimes a day or two would pass between moves.
It looks like the online games can be played without actually installing TripleA on one's machine? Is that right? I have it installed on my machine but like I said, he can't install.
Thank you. Thank you for making this great game.
