Advanced game history

Postby geegel on Sun Dec 31, 2006 8:56 am

Right now the game history records only the successful attacks, the deployment of troops and the reinforcements made. The fact that failed attacks and the number of armies lost per battles are not recorded makes the games impossible to track back. This is why I suggest a new advanced history log to make game analysis possible. Of course a visual playback of any game would be the stuff of dreams as it would allow a steeper learning curve for all the new recruits (myself included) and would improve the overall skill of all the players involved.

Priority: 3

bad idea because the program can't put it all to one failed attack (if you forfit 2 times from the same country to the same country you see it 2 times)
so than it would be flooded...

I appreciate the feedback and this is actually a valid point.

If there would be an additional option to switch between basic (current) history and advanced history (something similar to small/large map) would the proposal make more sense?

Search, and you will realize this has been suggested before under Gamelog 2.0.

List All Attacks in Game Log

Postby JupitersKing on Sat Jan 20, 2007 10:36 am

Hey guys,

Something I noticed is that when a player attacks a territory but doesn't take it there isn't a mention of it in the Game Log. Is there anyway of changing this to show all attacks made.

It doesn't really affect gameplay but it would be nice to see who does what during their turn. I'm playing the North America map and my opponent attacked me from California to Oregon and did some damage but nothing showed up in the log. It's not a big deal because it's my own territory and I noticed I have fewer armies than before, but when an opponent attacks someone else in the game and doesn't conquer the territory there's no real way of knowing anything happened (unless you can actually remember the number of armies every territory had prior to their turn).

This also might help ease collusion accusations between players who are actually attacking each other but just not conquering territories because they stop after taking a certain amount of causalties.

Just a thought... :idea:

aren't logs in old games are useful for investigating abuse reports? investigating single-user multiple accounts? etc.?

i don't mean to cry about this or anything but it will ruin a lot of tactics and should be optional just like cards, to check if the new game log has a positive or negative effect

I don't think it will be optional. If you play world domination in person, you'd be privy to such information of where an opponent attacks, but doesn't take a country.

Game Log Update

Postby Gilligan on Sun Feb 25, 2007 8:28 pm

The game log tells you, for example,
2007-02-25 19:46:00 Gilligan deployed 3 armies on Nepal.
2007-02-25 19:46:10 Gilligan attacked India from Nepal and conquered it from lackattack
2007-02-25 19:46:29 Gilligan ended attacks.
2007-02-25 19:47:45 Gilligan fortified India with 6 armies from Pakistan.
2007-02-25 19:50:23 Gilligan ended fortification.

This could be useful in freestyle games, especially RT ones for all of those people that wait to attack. What do you guys think?

Record failed invasions in the game log

Postby CreepyUncleAndy on Mon Mar 26, 2007 2:50 pm

There's alot of useful information on the game log, such as:

2007-03-26 19:25:42 - CreepyUncleAndy attacked Pakistan from India and conquered it from zachomega


How about adding failed attacks to the game log, so everyone can see how hosed you (or your foe) got trying to take some territory. For example, had my earlier attack failed, perhaps the game log could report it as follows:

2007-03-26 19:25:42 - There was a skirmish on the border between Pakistan and India.

Oh, THAT'S what that is? Awesome.....sorry to spam.

I guess we can use this thread to discuss what format these extra log entries take. I take it for granted the attacking region would come first, but should it be worded:

"The border between Panama and Guatemala"

or should it be worded:

"The Panama-Guatemala border"

????

To create an application that can show the game replay, the program would need to know who starts with which continents. I was thinking about writing one of my own, but then realized that the information in the game log was too incomplete for me to successfully write one.
