Re: New Website Issues

Thanks for the feedback. Uneducated, the tournaments are being fixed and should be up and running later this week. Merchandising is an interesting idea but the logistics are pretty hard. We have a global audience and storage and delivery becomes an issue. We can outsource it but last time we looked...

FEEDBACK: Automated Account Generation Problem

It looks like the Slitherine forum has been subject to an automated account creation bot. Since as far back as January, perhaps even further, very many accounts have been created with random user names and none of the accounts ever post anything. See below, for example: http://www.slitherine.com/for...

Re: Field of Glory II - The Wolves have arrived

The figurines are beautiful, and I welcome this addition to Field of Glory. I have a question though: Does this make the game any different/better? Would the stats for the new army lists change game play very much? Will tactics just remain the same? I wonder if the energies put into bringing this ex...

Teamwork in Panzer Corps 2

Multi-Player in PC2 is PvP (Player vs Player). It should be PvPs A part of a corps is the esprits de corps, the togetherness and sense of spirit. This is lost when playing solo against an AI (Artificial Intelligence) or against a single human opponent. Also, these battles are trivial because they ha...

Re: Home of Wargamers III Live next week! Panzer Corps 2 gameplay reveal!

The graphics are beautiful! The different elements of the game are in harmony - the tanks, the landscape, the drifting clouds, the shadows, the smooth movement of the planes... Even the sound of the tank engines is harmonious with the graphics. The one thing there which needs work I think is the whi...

.txt invalid file extension

The Beta Slitherine website still uses the same forum software, I think.

The new website/forum rejects .txt as a valid file extension for uploads. These are needed for dxdiag and logfiles in beta testing. The workaround is still to convert the file to a .zip and upload that I suppose...

I tried to run the game on GNU+Linux using Steam. It would not permit it on the GNU+Linux platform, unfortunately. I hope that the game will be supported there.

I'm sorry but we don't intend to remove the captcha. It's the first barrier against bots.
Have Slitherine established a "No bots unless authorised" policy for use on the forum? If a bot is granted permission, it ought to be clearly indicated each time.

Please replace Re-CAPTCHA as a means of validating humanity. The pixels clicked are used to form a biometric fingerprint and sent to big-data. Also, it is covertly used to collect IQ data based on problem solving and response speed, which in the hands of big-data is unethical. Please Slitherine, rec...

It is best to buy games directly from the developers rather than through Steam, but it seems that the pack is only available there.

How can you beat Macedonians with Indians?

Except by retreating constantly!

The Indian army is almost entirely archers. The moment the Macedonians close, you have lost. The elephants and chariorts are surprisingly tough but the Macedonians have a lot of pole-armed troops. It seems a foregone conclusion.... defeat!

SOLUTION: In this case, the solution was to create a more simple passphrase (alpha/numeric, no special characters). After registering the game with Slitherine and attempting to start an online game, the game seems to stall at "Connecting to server..." No connection occurs. EDIT: OK, the multi-playe...
