With 'Game Log 2.0', it will be possible for people to make programs to replay games and specific turns. Game Log 2.0 will also have a more detailed analysis of the turn in text also. Check it out, on the To-Do list.

Excellent, I thought it had probably been brought up before. I'm glad to hear that about 2.0.

Instant replay of finished game

Postby Tank1501 on Fri Dec 21, 2007 12:57 pm

I didn't see this anywhere on the list, but it would be really neat if after a game was over you could hit a button and see kind of an "instant replay" of the whole game. It would show the opening map, then cycle through and show the changes in armies & countries for each person's turn (maybe 5 seconds per turn, or allow user to choose 5, 10, 20 seconds). I think this would be a helpful strategy tool that would allow users to see what kind of strategy others are using to take over boards.

What do you think?

I think that it would be really cool but I'm afraid that it's too much work for Lack, this option isn't that important and it would take a lot of resources (though I don't know, I'm not familiar with this kind of stuff).

Replay and to see those that attack but dont win

Postby markme on Sun Dec 30, 2007 7:29 pm

I would think that it would be cool if you could rewind the game to see what has happened, when you play alot of games you can forget what has happened.
I think it would be cool to see who attacked but didnt win. If someone is attacking me but didnt take my territory i would want to know who did it

Game Log 2.0 will have an expandable feature that will state "Player A attacked Territory X but did not conquer." or something similar to that.

suggestion: enable a "re-animation" of a completed

Postby psilotum on Thu Jan 10, 2008 1:28 am

* Suggestion Idea: After a Fog Of War game is completed, allow players to view an animation, which replays the game, so one can visually experience what happened under the fog.
* Specifics: Enable a button or option to replay a game after it finishes. It might be beneficial to have different speed options, or different detail options. For example, you might show every army won or lost (if this is possible) or you might only show each country conquered. The viewer can see how the game progressed.
* Why it is needed: Currently, you can reconstruct the game from reading the game log. However, this is tedious. Watching a game in replay mode would be more enjoyable and more intuitive.

If this has already been suggested, consider this my vote to add this feature!

Thanks,
psilotum

this could be beneficial even in games without fog. if there is a secret alliance or a multi that is not defending a boarder, this can be spotted after the game is completed and not just as the action is occurring.

Yeah, I think this was a lot of the motivation of Game Log 2.0 as the current game log doesn't allow for this since there is no indication of where everyone started.

Easier post-game review

Postby vonForster on Thu Feb 21, 2008 1:25 am

I just got this idea, but I'm not sure how practical it would be to implement. After a game has been completed, people can go back and see how the map started at the beginning of the game, and maybe between each individual turn. It would make it MUCH easier than reading the log, and kinda show how the luck played into the game, if it applies.

Postby BaldAdonis on Thu Feb 21, 2008 2:21 am

You can get a script in add-ons to show you who owned what at any stage in the game, but the log doesn't keep track of how many armies were at each place, so you can't get an exact replay of any game that has finished until a different logging system is in place.
