Time Lapse Game Progression

Postby bdcurtis on Wed Sep 19, 2012 9:56 pm

A very cool feature would be an option to view time lapse game progressions of already completed games. That way one could "watch" games of other players they hope to learn from. Plus, it would simply be fun to replay how you were able to trounce opponents in a particularly memorable game. Fog of war would be lifted, of course.

I had thought that the game log was actually a type of audit of database activities for that particular game. I don't think the game log is one big long text string, but I could be wrong.

The closest that we can come to this right now is the Handy Game History script. Because of the limited information in the game log, actual troop counts cannot be replicated, but you can watch as territories change hands.
