CAMPAIGN START 6/23! And we're off!

Post  Father General on Tue Jun 24, 2014 12:10 am

The campaign starts NOW!

-I will be posting a revised map in a minute.

-I need a list of who can host and how many you think you can host without crashing.

-MTG/Uncle Billy/Kevin, we need to post a list of mods and their links. Is it okay to use toolbar mods or any others during the games? I don't want anyone to miss out because they crash, or for us to play that one game where we spend an hour trying to get everything to work, then play a game that crashes 10 minutes before we're done... Any help you provide, and that goes for anyone, is appreciated.

-A quick shout out to NIALL/HAYS*, DIGBY, MARTIN, and STEFAN who have provided MATERIAL SUPPORT to this campaign. I'd like to buy you gentlemen beers and we will talk privately to see how to arrange that (Paypal?). (NIALL/HAYS = 1 person, therefore only 1 beer, sorry.)

-I will post stories to each private forum to get the party started. These stories will provide the initial situation and other information to the side commanders and will be enjoyed by those who are committed to a side for reading. Floaters aren't supposed to see them, but I'm not going to commit seppuku if they do. Ideally the side forums are private to those who have locked themselves on each side. Message me on here if there is an issue.

Away we go, let's have some fun!

I play our Kriegspiel games using Kevin's mod, Garniers GCM terrain mod (prettier trees and bushes) and reb Buglers toolbar. All of these have worked for me over months and months of GCM games.

There is one clear rule we do need to announce and that is that all Couriers games we play MUST be played in full screen, never in windowed mode. There is a specific instability crash in SoW MP play that still occurs regarding courier messages that Norb has identified is linked to windows of different resolution.

Please don't discuss this or say "it works fine with X mods", or "windowed MP games have worked fine for me for years". We know. We completely believe you. We also know with almost 2 years of playing under our belts with HITS & Couriers mode that full screen is essential to prevent one certain pattern of crash.

Thanks everyone.

Digby, having witnessed this myself, I concur. In fact, I thought it was a standing KS group rule already.

It is, but we are opening the group to new players some of whom may not be aware of this.

It's good to see superstition is alive and well.

I can't stop anyone from playing in windowed mode, but I definitely know that minimizing the game while running freezes it. Anyway, that's our rule even if it is largely unenforceable. Just know that if you play in windowed mode, the entire host of Providence sees what you're doing.

Whatever choices you make, please "don't upset my circles." (Last words of Greek philosopher Aristarchus, before he was killed by an invading Roman soldier.)

I'll comply with the KS superstition rule, no problem.

Minimizing the game while in windows mode does not freeze the game. Minimizing in full screen mode does.
