Multiplayer Question

Post by lascar » Tue Nov 29, 2016 11:36 pm

Can you issue an open multiplayer challenge without a password?

There are two symbols next to each challenge in the PBEM list. One with only a padlock and the
other a padlock with a chain. The one with the chain seems to require a password to accept but
the one without the chain also requires a password.

Thanks for clarification.

You have to setup without password if you want to play against someone new, else you decided beforehand with a specific person and tell password.

It is quite bad that no info about the multiplayer game exist in the game.

Also, only 4 pbem games going? With the extreme short time needed to do a turn (impulse), often only 1min... it can easily leave someone with only 20min gametime per day!!!

10-20 pbem games should be the minimum number of possible pbem games!!!

Slitherine do something about this, thanks.

And regarding multiplayer.

It would be a great improvement if the last chat message was on top instead of the bottom (timestamp would also be nice). So I won't need to scroll-up every time to look for new message.

And why are those (and others) UI interfaces so extremely large. A window with tine information don't need to be so extremely wide. And take the combat info box, it ought to be scaled down with 50% so it isn't covering so much of the map. Plenty of things seems to be developed for a mobile phone instead of computer.
