Ah. I figured someone would have thought of this, but I didn't see that one when I looked/searched.

How impossible would it be to have replays?

Postby Turtle Power on Fri Jul 06, 2007 7:20 pm

Super impossible? I mean to be able to save games and re-watch them to develop strategy would be very helpful. Nothing fancy, just have it go turn by turn with a red arrow showing expansion. Like a screenshot taken after every turn.

Replay / Review Games

Postby Heinyken on Sun Sep 16, 2007 2:54 pm

I looked through the topics to see if someone else had posted this, and through the To-Do List, and didn't find it in either, so I apologize in advance if this has already been brought up and/or vetoed.

What would it take to have some sort of option that could re-play, turn-by-turn, what happened throughout a game. It could be an option available only after a game ended, or maybe -- if possible -- while still active (so that a person could see what happened over the last Round).

Basically what I'm envisioning is a layout much like the one which already exists. It could have a "Next" button and could somehow read what each player did, blow-by-blow and illustrate it as the person clicked "Next" or "Play".

Does this make sense? I would like this so that I could analyze my own plays, and also the plays of other, more successful players. I think this could make for an interesting option.

Great job on the site, on the additions and everything else, this is a great idea and an awesome product! Thanks for your hard work!

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.

After Game Review (game playback)

Postby tacomarocks on Tue Dec 18, 2007 3:24 pm

i thought it would be cool if there was a way which the game being played could be recorded some how and you can review it after the game is finished on the map in sort of in real time mode. like a playback

i know it is recorded through the game log but i thought it would be neat if the game log could be used to recreate the map each round so we can see how the game was played instead of having to read the log.

this could be cool especially when watching really good players because usually all their games finish with the map covered in one color and we wouldnt have to keep pressing refresh refresh refresh[/b]

What was that I can't hear you over the noise of the internet?

There is no need to type really large, if someone can't read it then they need glasses.

As for the actual sugestion I think that might be hard to program(code) into the sight. But, there may be an addon or plugin that can do this for you, or it can be created. ;)

I have to go to bed now, but someone actually was working on this. It's either in this forum of the Plug-Ins one. It was something about Handy Game History (search on those three terms). You should find it.

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

Postby lancehoch on Thu Jan 10, 2008 1:47 am

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.
