TripleA: Where to dl, How to Download Maps, Pictures of games TripleA supports


  • Customizer

    Click to Download the Latest Version of TripleA
    (pictures are in next post, keep scrolling down to see them)

    TripleA comes with, by default, just 4 maps:
    Big World            (ww2 map)
    Great War           (ww1 map)
    Capture the Flag   (free for all map)
    Minimap              (a really small tutorial map)

    How to download more maps:
    **All you have to do is start up TripleA 1.2.X.X (Yes that means run the .exe or .sh) and click on the “Download Maps” button. A dialog box will open where you can add links to “Map Repositories” (sites that host maps.)  **
    Here’s is the best one to add:
    http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/tripleamaps/triplea_maps.xml

    And here are a couple backup ones:
    http://sites.google.com/site/tripleawarclub/tripleawarmaps.xml
    http://sites.google.com/site/tripleaerniebommel/home/mods/TripleA_Quality_Mods_EB_old.xml

    Just take the second link (the long http one that ends in .xml), and copy it.  Then open up TripleA, click on Download maps, then PASTE it into the blank box there, then click “list games”.   (clicking the links to the .xml below will do nothing for you).  Here is a Slideshow showing how to do it.

    Here are two of the places where you can get popular maps for TripleA (version 1.2 and later):

    TripleA Maps sourceforge page, contains all maps and resources you might need.

    Maps:
    World War II Classic
    World War II Revised
    World War II v3

    If you need to install the maps Manually, they are located at (on a PC):
    (Windows) C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\triplea\maps
    (Mac) /home/user/documents/triplea/maps
    (Linux) /home/user/triplea/maps
    Simply download the zip and move it to that folder.  No need to unzip if the zip file is properly set up.

    For instructions on setting up your own map repository see This Link.

    For a map making utility, created by Wisconsin, visit the forum announcements section.
    For instructions on how to make your own map, visit the forum, and also note instructions on how to do a correct list of Properties, and issues with the polygon grabber, how to change unit’s colors, and so on can be answered by searching the forum or posting there.
    TripleA is Open Source software, and here are instructions on how to use the source code.

    If you encounter bugs in the TripleA program, like a Java error, Please copy the java error and post the error on the Bug Tracker, along with some information about when and how this bug occurred.  Also mention what version of TripleA you are using, and attach a save game if possible.  It also helps if you sign up for a sourceforge account when posting the bug.  That way you get notifications of when the bug is closed, and the developers can contact you if we need more information about the bug.

    If the lobby is down, Please visit THIS LINK and make a post with the date, time, and time zone.

    I would also like to provide links to a browser accessible Battle Calculator, as well as an LL Calculator, and if you are in need of strategy please check out the Forums of AxisandAllies.org.  TripleA also has a wiki site, and if you feel like contributing to it please do.  Again, the TripleA Supply Depot has many tutorials and slideshows you should check out if you need more help.

    RULES:
    If you are new to War Games, I highly suggest you go and read a Rules Book for a certain popular war game that happens to be very generic in manner.  Slightly more advanced rules may be more complex, but are more rewarding too (though they may require some help).
    Again, click this link if you want to learn how to play Most Games: WW2v2 Rules
    And this link if you want to learn the more Advanced Games: WW2v3 Rules   (and this link for some rules errata on the advanced game: WW2v3 Errata)

    Strategy Guides:
    Here is a relatively simple Strategy Guide that was made by Pulicat, only 17 pages and definitely worth reading.

    If you have a map or a link you would like me to include, pm me or post below and i’ll add it to the list.  These lists are edited, so check back often.
    If you are new, and found something difficult or hard to learn, that was not covered in this post or in links provided by this post, please mention it and i will add it.
    Thx

    How to host a game:

    1. you need to make sure your firewall allows ALL activity of the triplea.exe (this usually involves opening up your firewall, finding the permissions or applications page, and then adding “all” permissions or activity to the triplea.exe)

    2. you need to send port 3300 to your local IP address (port forwarding)

    3. you need to make sure your ports are open (access restrictions)

    If you need additional help with anything, or specifically port forwarding, click on one of these two links:

    thx for the sticky whoever did that 🙂


  • 2017 '16 '15 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    no problem.



  • Huh, so now it breaks no copyrights?
    Lol, anyone can see through it though.
    Is there a way to override the system in tripleA (to allow for house rules)?


  • Customizer

    there are some house rules that are coded for, and they are available in the “options” menu before the game starts

    and for everything else there is “edit mode” which allows you to do a ton of stuff
    you can switch tabs in edit mode to move units, etc, not just the usual things (most people don’t know you can switch tabs in edit mode for different effects, i only found that out recently)

    well, besides no longer referencing hasbro material, the game engine no longer ships with any maps that contain possible copyrighted material.
    also, it is much more of a general war game engine than previous releases, which can be attested to in the wide variety of maps and rules that we have

    i mean…. try downloading ‘zombieland’ and you will see that this is not just axis and allies anymore



  • Is there any AARe map for it. That’s the only Revised I ever play, and I would hate to be using edit mode every turn for it.


  • Customizer

    @Wilson2:

    Is there any AARe map for it. That’s the only Revised I ever play, and I would hate to be using edit mode every turn for it.

    There is an enhanced Revised, but I think it is different than the one you are referring to.  Give me a link to the rules or description of the one you are referring to, and maybe i can mod it for you.


  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    WWII Version 4, is the same map as Version 2.

    which one is the map for spring 1942?


  • Customizer

    @Gargantua:

    WWII Version 4, is the same map as Version 2.

    which one is the map for spring 1942?

    in triplea
    Spring 1942 is “World War II v4”

    in case you are curious on the history of Spring 1942, it uses the exact same map as “Revised” does, but uses the rules from “AA50”
    (there are a couple of changes, such as a UK bb that got turned into a cruiser, a couple destroyers that became cruisers, and slightly different borders in north america)

    revised is ww2v2
    aa50 is ww2v3
    spring1942 is ww2v4


  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Umm….

    Hate to say it,

    But the maps, optically are significantly different, like if you look at them side by side.

    Revised vs 1942.

    Unless you mean to tell me, different look aside that, that the territories and sea zones all line up, and match in perfect accordance, for purposes of unit movement, even though they may be of a different draw?

    If you dont agree, go look on IL’s tag and dload his maps.  Or check out pics of the eastern front for example on www.boardgamegeek.com

    Or am I missing something here?

    while larry did change the shape of africa, etc, the look of africa does not change any actual territory connections, etc.
    have a look at revised and 1942 side by side, you will see they are the exact same map with the only exceptions being iceland and formosa are added, slight change in connections in north america


  • Customizer

    I started a sourceforge project to host all the known maps.

    And I made this kind of cool website for it,

    check it out:
    http://tripleamaps.sourceforge.net/

    (my website making skills are limited, but i think it looks pretty badass!)



  • Any chance seeing AAG40 on TripleA? I would even pay money for that 😉



  • @ikaros:

    Any chance seeing AAG40 on TripleA? I would even pay money for that 😉

    If you pay Comradekev (TripleA developer) he will probably do the necessary coding within 2-3 weeks.

    Or you can try to get a cheaper coder in India to do the job  🙂



  • @Subotai:

    😢



  • I’m probably not going to pay as much as Comradekev expects, so I’ll let him do it for free, if he wants to that is 😉


  • 2007 AAR League

    Has anyone played the latest downloadable scenario about the Eastern Front? It’s where you play as Army Groups North/Centre/South, plus ALL the minor Axis powers versus the giant Russian bear. The Russians are played by a very competent AI which is beating me. Anybody have any tips on how to play this game correctly/what to buy/best strat that kind of thing?



  • Several Triple A questions:

    • Which version is Spring 1942?  OP says WWIIv2 Revised = Spring 1942, somebody else says WWIIv4

    • Using WWIIv4, I can’t seem to use transports.  When clicking inf/art/tanks it says “land units cannot both load and unload on the same turn” what gives?

    • I can’t figure out how to perform bombardments on ICs

    Thanks guys!  Trying to get up and running here on a Mac.  Are there any other maps that host macs?


  • '16 '15 '10

    @murdoc:

    Several Triple A questions:

    • Which version is Spring 1942?  OP says WWIIv2 Revised = Spring 1942, somebody else says WWIIv4

    Spring 42=v4
    Revised=v2

    Using WWIIv4, I can’t seem to use transports.  When clicking inf/art/tanks it says “land units cannot both load and unload on the same turn” what gives?

    You load and unload by right clicking the unit and loading it onto the transport.  As far as not being able to load and unload, what you can do with the transports is limited by what’s allowed by the game rules.  The game engine enforces the rules, so you can only perform moves that would be legal.

    • I can’t figure out how to perform bombardments on ICs

    Bombardments are for land units, not ICs, so nothing wrong with that.



  • @Zhukov44:

    @murdoc:

    Several Triple A questions:

    • Which version is Spring 1942?  OP says WWIIv2 Revised = Spring 1942, somebody else says WWIIv4

    Spring 42=v4
    Revised=v2

    Revised will appear with the name of Revised when you are choosing the scenario on TripleA. The V2 designation only appears on the description of the game.

    • I can’t figure out how to perform bombardments on ICs

    If you mean strategic bombings just move the bomber to the territory where the IC is located. The game will then ask you if you want to attack or bomb the territory.



  • Ah!  Much appreciated.

    However, WWIIv4 - has several map differences from the 1942 map.  Ie. Kenya as opposed to Rhodesia in Africa with different maps lines.

    Anyway, thanks a lot.



  • @Veqryn:

    and here are some pics:
    most of these pictures have been reduced in size to be a quarter to a fifth of their original size.

    WW2v2 (spring 1942)

    WW2v2 (revised)

    Veqryn, you probably want to edit your second post so that the title for the first map reads WW2v4 (spring 1942) to avoid confusion, as can be seen from the couple questions confusing spring 42 with revised.


  • '12

    Well, I can’t seem to host a game.  Before I am accused of not putting effort first.  Yes, I did port Forwarding 3300 even 3300-3310.  Ipconfig lets me know what the local IP of machine is.  My external IP of the router is also known, matches the IP TripleA can’t connect to.

    I tried a DMZ on my locale IP, with and without combinations of port forwarding.  I have downloaded a few port scanners, not impressed with the results.  Consulted my windows firewall, added port forwarding there.  Short of bypassing my router physically I am open to suggestions.  I guess a comp sci degree and 30 years of writing code isn’t much help here.

    See this thread
    http://forum.portforward.com/YaBB.cgi?num=1262197615

    Odd.  On my router/modem, I have to add an exception + port for TripleA.  I had trouble hosting when the new stable came out; eventually I realized I hadn’t added an exception for Windows Firewall.

    But it seems like you’ve considered these variables so I don’t know how to help you–you could try pming Veqyrn and see if he can help troubleshoot it for you.  Also feel free to ask people on the lobby for suggestions–some of them may have had the same problem.
