Re: Deleting old logs, viewing replays and such

Sorry if some of this has already been sorted out: I posted before I realised that I had only read the first page of posts. It's very late....

* logs will be deleted on old games to make room for all these dice rolls
I really really like the idea of replays. a remark on the quoted part: if you can, have it available for downloading before deleting.
Personally: In a replay I'm not that interested in dice-rolls; just who owns what land.

Programming feasibility question: Would a downloaded game be replayable, or would one have to upload it again? I mean, is it conceivable that the replay utility could run offline, or would that require putting too much of the game engine on the client side of things?

Storage suggestion: Perhaps it should be possible to prevent the deletion of a completed game: "save your faves". One for freemium, more for premium members? Preserving games on the site for tutorial purposes could help groups like The Society of the Cooks. The ability to add extra comments (post-game analysis) could be quite useful, too. Integration with the forum would be terrific!

Dice rolls: I agree, cube-by-cube replay might make replays more entertaining to watch, but it is not essential in my mind. Knowing where attacks were attempted and which succeeded or failed is what's important. Anything that affects positions and troop strength should be recorded. (Do games that automatically revert certain territories to neutral record this in the game log now? I have not yet played such a map.)

Game option: Since users may base strategies on the lack of information in the game log as it is now, the extended game log should be selectable when starting a game, like fog of war.

Once BOB becomes a site feature this will happen, also was it necessary to necro bump this? What's with all the necro bumping recently?

What do you consider necro bumping? If someone is exploring the forum, and finds a open topic to which they can contribute, should they hold their tongue just because a few weeks have gone by? There are over 60000 topics with 1.8 million posts in this forum. It might take a new user a while to find something of interest to them about which they have something worth saying.
Besides, aren't you the member who was suggesting a special PM after 50 games which would invite a member to check out the forum? What do you expect them to do, quietly admire the wisdom already posted?
In my mind, bumping occurs when a poster adds nothing of substance, especially when that poster was already the last poster. What I see here looks like dialogue.

Suggestion: Game Archives

Postby Dublanous1 on Tue Jun 09, 2009 6:17 pm

A cool feature would be looking at a finished game and being able to click through the turns and see the "archives" of the game, and I searched the topic and I don't think someone has suggested it before, but there is a good chance someone has. Let me know what you all think.

You are right, it most likely has been suggested before. Though you might need to explain what you mean by "archives" before we can tell.

Also using the form is highly appreciated.

I believe there have been several "Replay" suggestions, even a visual one as well.

game log

Postby H-man on Thu Jun 18, 2009 9:06 am

PLACE A CONCISE DESCRIPTION OF THE SUGGESTION OR BUG IN THE SUBJECT LINE!!!


Concise Discription:
  • When a player tries to assualt, but fails, there is nothing that says that in the game log

Specifics:
  • Maybe we could say something like: player x tried to assualt x from y but failed...

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • The specifiction of the game log

I think this would just clutter the log too much and there's no real need for it. Espesially in games where it's like 50 v. 40 and the 50 can't take the 40, that would be a long log of just X tried to assault Y and failed, X tried to assault Y and failed, X tried .....

You're kidding, right? Do you know how many times I have accused someone of hitting my stack and them saying they only attacked a 1? Then who ACTUALLY hit my stack? I WANNA KNOW AND GET REVENGE ON THAT GUY!!!!!

Very much so. I've been meaning to suggest this exact same thing, but I never got around to it.

Well they should make it happen whether or not someone suggested it before!
