i.e.
Red starts the game with afghanistan, kamchatka, china, India.
Blue starts the game with siam, ukraine, great britain, irkutsk.
etc

I don't think this is necessary: initial deployment can already be put together based on the state of the board and actions that the current game log gives, except in the case of deadbeats. Maybe then once someone is kicked out of the game, a list of what they left? You'd want that anyways to do proper replays, otherwise the assumption that neutrals start with 3 won't give the right army counts to attacks on neutral territories that were abandoned.


For the sake of a couple of logs at the beginning of each game - I don't see the harm in including it... it would make my job a lot easier to create a replay function.

HAve read the thread and didn't find anyone mentioning this yet. I would really appreciate it if we could see deployments, attacks (as long as your own country is attacked), and fortifications to countries adjacent to yours in a game with fog on. This is because the countries next to you are anyway already 'sunny' thus making it illogical that we shouldn't be able to read about them in the log.

E.g: "X fortified ? with 2 armies from Brazil"
"X attacked Venezuela from ? and conquered it from Y"

In case this has been discussed, rejected or otherwise thought about already, plz forgive me :)

Game Log XML awaited eagerly...
Specifically referring to the XML:

Agree with:

All attacks displayed (successful AND unsuccessful esp. with armies lost)
Number of armies at turn start/end

Disagree:

Dice rolls - unsuccessful attack display is sufficient and storing this huge amount
of info at the expense of old logs is not a fair swap. Statistical applications objection noted.

Is there a thread appropriate to post the exact XML I expect from the Game log XML?

EDIT: Added defender tag (based on yeti_c's suggestion)

For the Game Logs XML here is a proposed outline with example data:
(assuming you need to specify game # in the URL for the XML, it is omitted from the data)

This event log shows an assault on Yakutsk with an unsuccessful attack and a successful attack.
I hope this is the best thread to start this off, although I guess its outline is almost done anyway...

Looks good - however...

Your <armies> tag is somewhat flawed...

As you need to know both sides of the argument - i.e. how many were lost on both sides.

Postby yeti_c on Wed May 21, 2008 5:54 am

Getting there...

Problem is - you can't tell who won the attacks with this format...

You can see that attacker lost 3 and defender lost 2...

However we don't know how many were there to start with?

Perhaps a <Success> tag?

Also - you need to know how many armies were advanced into the space.

The last - and probably most valid point...

This is all well and good - for "auto attacks" - but the normal attack button will spawn a multitude of these logs - is the server meant to condense these into one?

What happens if you attack one territory - kill a few - then attack a different one kill a few - then attack the first territory again?

Well, yes you can tell who won the attack, but I haven't clearly explained the scope of the output.
I think it's too much to store every single dice roll, therefore
no point in recording every "sub-attack" either.

So if you restrict to just conquer and failed to conquer
then all you need to do is look at the sign of the armies.

So <armies>8</armies><defender>-1</defender>
means a successful attack moving 8 armies into the space occupied by the 1 defender.

So that means

<armies>-2</armies>
means a cumulative failed attack attempt losing 2 armies.
So the attacker might have made several attempts but ultimately
failed to remove all defenders.

I think that addresses all of your points.

Ah I see... yes that does work...

So if you have
<armies>0</armies>
<defender>-2</defender>

Then they haven't conquered - but have just removed 2 armies.

The only problem here is that you can't distinguish bombardment with these rules...

As the above answer could mean annihilation - or just reduction.

Maybe instead, you could have the log change when the drop-down menus change. For example, someone is attacking Alaska from Kamchatka and rolls until the attacker loses 5 and the defender loses 7. Then they decide to attack Alaska from Alberta. They change the "from" drop-down to Alberta, and when that changes, if there were changes in army numbers, the changes are posted.

Could have some indicator for bombardment. I'm not exactly sure what this is -
description says conversion of defender's armies to neutral.

So <defender>0</defender> with a positive armies number - could that indicate bombardment?
(Cannot normally move in unless at least one defender has been lost)

I cannot find a good description for this aside from the one-liner on the instructions pages. (Unless I've missed it totally)

I would really love to see this, and it would solve many of the obstacles that are in the game log: make the game log click-able so that when you click on an action in it, the map will show what it looked like at the point in the game.

This would help both players in the game to better understand what happened (seeing as you can click on the previous action for the before and after kind of thing) and help players viewing the game to look at how it progressed if they only start looking at the end.

Show all opponents' actions in game log

Postby flyingwalrus69 on Mon Aug 04, 2008 2:33 pm

Can we have a more detailed game log showing all of an opponents actions from previous turns? It would be really useful to know if an opponent tried to attack you on a previous turn, for obvious reasons. Sometimes it is not very obvious if you have been attacked. I would even like to see all the dice rolls from their turns as well. You have access to all of this information in "real" Risk, so why not in CC?

Thanks for posting your suggestion.

This has actually already been suggested. Take a look at the Game Log 2.0 thread and join in the discussion there.

Example log entry for unsuccessful/stopped attack: Kamchatka attacks Alaska: 6G -> 4R Result: 3G -> 2R.
Example log entry for successful attack (takeover): Kamchatka attacks Alaska: 6G -> 4R Result: 1G -> 3G.

G and R are the color codes for green and red.

That's what I'd want to see. Anyone agree?

I think the server should keep track of all changes from beginning of attack phase to end of attack phase and spit out just the final results in the format above. Something similar can be put in the xml file. Too complicated a programming change? Send me the code or give me access - I'll do it. :)

This has been in the works for at least a year, right? What's the hold up? Are you all waiting on the players to agree on something?

Just provide the XML and leave it to the greasemonkeys to make the game replayer.

First, XML is how the territories and bonuses are coded, not the game engine.
Second, this is being worked on, they would rather do one large update (with all new Game Log features) rather than many small updates.
Third, I like the idea of a game replayer, I think that this would require two sets of logs though, simple logs that are loaded regularly, and extended logs that are loaded by the replayer.
