Oh I had checked the to-do list to make sure it wasn't up there, I guess I overlooked it.

I guess that answers my question. I was just thinking of some matrix-like structure at game start and then only saving the changed entries for each turn. Just start/placement/end turn. But ic ur into going all the way down to dice rolls which is even cooler :D

replay after game has ended

Postby Jrus on Thu Oct 12, 2006 8:24 am

It would be a great option to see your game in replay after finishing up.
Within a couple of seconds you see your just ended game start, evolve and finally end.

...but perhaps difficult to program.

Aw, dude, I've totally dreamed of this... but I've always been afraid of asking since it seems like it would eat up space... seemed kind of frivolous...

Stiiiilll, if the log was made to contain enough information, couldn't something be programmed to play back a map based on that?

I think once a few of the next updates come out, it will be possible to make 'movies' of the turns taken in a game.

With third-party apps, of course. :-D

This is something I'd do, and maybe even a script-kiddie like Tr0y.

And Tr0y, I'm just kidding, you know we love you.
I was a major back when 1600 was major. Now that I'm back, I get to easily win a bunch of games to get my rank. Thank the 'tards here who suck at this game.

Game replay

Postby Lanceyboyuk on Tue Dec 26, 2006 7:51 pm

Ok im not sure how this would work or the effort that would go into it (guess alot and may not be possible). But it would be nice to have a way of setting up game to a certain point and play from that point again etc to see how it would have turned out if you tried a different way to attack. May be something you could add for another layer of prem i dunno. Ill think about when im not so tired and explain better in morning.

Eventually users will be able to make a script to make videos of the game, once we go through more updates in the future.

Game History Playback

Postby WidowMakers on Fri Jan 05, 2007 9:41 pm

I was looking a t a competing site, LandGrab.com, and noticed an interesting feature they had. It was a history playback feature. You could go and see each turn of the map and how armies progressed. Is this a possible feature that could be implemented. And if it is does anyone want it.

Eventually, when we update further, I believe you'll be able to essentially make movies of games, from all the data.

[Merged] Replay Option

Postby yeti_c on Tue Jan 23, 2007 5:10 am

Suggestion Idea:

Have you ever played Civilization (1 2 3 or 4)? At the end of the game you can watch a replay of what happened with logging and different speeds.

Specifics:

I reckon this would probably need the Game Log 2.0 improvement first as that would hold all necessary data.
Would be cool to watch your victories... or other peoples victories.

Why it is needed:

Nice to have I reckon?!

Priority** (1-5): 5 minimal - only if you're bored.
