All right, all right, I'll get the rest. *sigh*

There's a 1-player option.
Middle East and Middle Ages are reversed in the "Map" box.
It says "Hit again to deselect" when it should say "Click again to deselect."
The "Yes" option for Trench Warfare is upside down.
"Ben" instead of "BOB," which I find hilarious for some reason.
There shouldn't be a Tour Stats menu in the sidebar.

Pretty sure that's all.

Hokey-cokey-pig-in-a-pokey. Lets play another one then. Last one of these for a bit. New games tomorrow.

#Just For Fun.

You know the drill. I went fishing for a screen grab, played with it and it is up to you to find the mistakes. Only thing is, I will not tell you how many there are. :lol:

Postby koontz1973 on Sat Apr 20, 2013 4:20 am

A little more time for this one to get the entries to me.


Image
For our third competition, you are going to look into the future. :mrgreen:

...............................What Can You Say?
Last week, I asked you all to look in the foundry for maps that I had posted a description of. Some of you faired better than others. But every map needs this small description written. This is what was written for Rorke's Drift.
Map Description wrote:January 1879, around 4500 Zulu warriors attacked the tiny outpost of Rorke's Drift. Under the command of Chard and Bromhead, around 130 British and 20 Natal regulars defended the outpost for 2 whole days before relief.

Now it is your turn to write one for us. Below is a list of maps at various stages of development. Click on any of the names to take you to the thread. There you will find the maps image. Write out a short description and send it to me (koontz1973) with the maps image using the form below.
Code: Select all
Maps Name:
Maps Image:[BigImg] [/BigImg]
Description:

Remember, the description must belong to the map and be recognisable.
District of Columbia by brhiba
Lisbon Metro 2030 by Armandolas
The Great War by Oneyed
Alamo by generalhead
Tank Battle by oneyed
Mystical Era by ManBungalow
Three kingdoms of China by Seamus76
Research & Conquer by isaiah40
Alaska by Seamus76
Tribal War Israel by Seamus76
Spanish Amarda by cairnswk
4 Star Meats by dana1971
Homeworlds by dolomite13
Medival England by The Bison King
Escape by koontz1973

Get the entries submitted to me (koontz1973) by 20th April for judging by the Mod-Team. For every entry that gets a majority of thumbs up, will receive a general achievement medal. One entry per player.

All entries will be judged by a crack squad of troops who recently broke out of a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by El_Jefe they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The Mod-Team.

Good luck and have fun. :D
