Can we program a semi-anon variant to decrease likelihood of multi and meta cheaters?
The variant will show who's playing but not what country he or she is playing. Then the players are able to spot metagamers and possibly multi cheaters right away. Please give feedback on idea and feasibility.
I just wanted to publicly recognize Geofram for sitting for me for an extended period of time in which I had no time to properly pursue my Diplomacy games. He stepped up when I didn't have anyone to ask and ensured my opponents had an opponent instead of a CD.
Why post this in the forum? He deserves the kudos, and anyone who thinks more highly of him for this is icing on the cake.
The database was down for ~1 hour 30 minutes. I've added 3 hours to games to compensate. The downtime was due to an automatic mysql update script but no script to restart the mysql service, which I've now added in. Apologies for the inconvenience
It is impossible to register to this game since the switch to the dedicated server, the validation page just refreshes. 6 of our group is already registered, but we cannot (and will not) start a game without the seventh member. If it is a browser issue, IExplorer, Firefox and Chrome are displaying this error.
Hope this will get resolved soon, I'm eager to play with my friends.
On these forum threads, I have been offensive, to say the least. As an excuse, I would say it was because I have political differences with people that offend me....but, as suggested, that is just an excuse.
Hi, I have a few friends who are trying to join, but when they register, they do not get a confirmation email. They have been trying over the past 72 hours and still no change. Does anyone know when WebDip will have its servers fully set up? Thanks
Well given that the original thread slid into the depth I figured I'd start a new thread, and try and give a little life back to what I think was a promising idea: Essentially a high class live game club
My Rotary Club is hosting a young Japanese student who is interested in International Politics. I would like to have contacts in Japan that speak Japanese that can follow up with him on the game. Please contact me direct off the thread as I do not get here that often. EdiBirsan AT astound DOT net
Looks like you got torn apart by Austria and Italy while Russia, England, and France destroyed Germany. THEN Austria and England conquered Russia while both they and Italy began attacking France. Austria betrays Italy, and the game is over. I... think that about covers it?
Hmmm.... You got your ass served on a plate? I really don't like the way you played your 2 first years, especially the anti-Russian opening when it's pretty clear that you didn't have an alliance locked in with Austria. And Russia obviously had some good comm with Austria...
And... maybe I'm being dumb, but I really don't see where the multiaccounting is particularly obvious in this one. You could sub ☺ and I as Italy and Austria (or vice versa if you have to :P) and "they're cheaters!" gets replaced with "well, they've done gunboat before, they just signaled the right moves at the right times" or what have you.
Granted, I didn't check past history... maybe that's where it was obvious? Except that no one said anything about cheating until it was a gunboat, so I figured it was the gunboat aspect that made it so clearly cheating.
Actually it wasn't just Italy, Austria, and Russia, it was also Germany and userID=34756 that got banned too. I think there were two different sets of multi's in this game, lol @Eden, Italy's moves do not make sense for a player that wants to get a draw or even a win, he clearly was more concerned with causing France enough trouble that Austria could win during the later stage of the game.
