Help Support TripleA Software Development


  • SFO Founder TripleA Admin

    TripleA is vital to our community here at Axis & Allies.org. It makes a chore of play-by-forum no longer a problem.

    Veqryn and the other developers have put in hundreds of hours of development to make this possible and now it is your turn to give back. TripleA is running a donation drive for all of the great work they have put in. If you donate and are a member of this forum, I will give you a special badge on your profile for your support as well as a mention here on this list.

    😮      😄

    Thank you very much, Djensen and A&A.org, and FMG too, for hosting this donation drive for TripleA.

    Make sure to post below so that Djensen can give you a Tag.  :evil:


    I have held off on any kind of donation drive for TripleA because I wanted to have something to show for all the effort.  People have been expecting, ever since the first 1940 game was released, that we would support it.  Now, that day has finally come, and I feel myself and the other devs can feel proud to have made it happen.

    The donation will be primarily done by PayPal, but if you do not have PayPal let me know and we can accept other ways like a check or direct deposit, etc.

    These funds will go towards the following:
      *  Time spent already on developing the Engine
      -  -  TripleA is no longer just about A&A.  I have spent hundreds of hours making TripleA a general game engine that allows far more customized maps.
      -  -  TripleA now plays all three 1940 maps.

    *  Future work and development on the Engine
      -  -  Continue to improve support for 1940 maps until they are perfect.
      -  -  Support future A&A maps.
      -  -  Continue to make TripleA able to support any kind of game we want to play.
      -  -  Get TripleA to play Risk! and other boardgames.

    *  Time spent on Promoting and Advertising of TripleA
      -  -  We are now on Desura and also on CNET among many other websites.
      -  -  I will apply for us to be on Steam and/or Origin. 
      -  -  I maintain all these website accounts and keep their copies updated.

    To give some idea of the amount of work that has happened since TripleA 1.2.5.4 was released 2 years ago, consider the following:
      *  I have for more than 2 years maintained the TripleA Maps repository of all known maps and games, as well as art and all other material related to TripleA.  This repository allows people to easily download any map they want.
      *  Having joined the development team in 2009, I was the main developer and only developer for about a year while ComradeKev and Sean quit after 1.2.5.5.  In total I have been developing TripleA’s engine for about 2 years.
      *  Since 1.2.5.4 was released, there have been over 800 code commits to the engine.  Approximately half of all changes in the changelog have occurred after 1.2.5.4 was released.
      *  For the past year, I have spent, on average, around 20-30 hours per week, sometimes more, working on the TripleA engine (and that is just me, we have 2-3 other devs too).  In addition, I have created many of the maps in the download list.

    How to Donate:

    http://sourceforge.net/donate/index.php?group_id=44492

    Any person who donates will get a special “gear” symbol by their name in Sourceforge, IF they have registered a SourceForge account before donating.  You do not have to register first, you can donate anonymously (most people donate anonymously). 

    If you do not have PayPal, please let me know by posting here or by emailing me, and we can discuss other ways to donate.  My email is: VEQRYN {at} Hotmail [dot] com

    Many thanks,

    If you donate to TripleA, please let me know here so that I can give you your badge.

    The only coordination I with the TripleA folks is to look at the list on an irregular basis and sometimes the names on the TripleA donor list may not match your username.

    Thanks.


  • TripleA

    Donated.  Thanks to TripleA team.

  • SFO Founder TripleA Admin

    Did you donate to both A&A.org and TripleA? Just curious because you did donate to A&A.org today. If it was meant for TripleA I can refund your money.

    @AnthonyPaulO:

  • '12

    Yes, I donated to both your site and TripleA, so no worries.  😄


  • '12

    $10 from me.  🙂  Thanks for a great app!



  • The last two days when I go to post my move or my turn I get an unknown error bug and nothing is going to A & A . org. Any Ideas on how to be rid of this bug?

  • Customizer

    this has absolutely nothing to do with triplea

    a&a.org has run out of hard drive space

    noone can attach any files to their posts, not just triplea savegames

    djensen should buy a lot more space so that this does not happen again

    i think he is working on it

    Hi guys, there is a donation drive currently for the TripleA server costs.

    Donations pay for the server which hosts the TripleA lobby for live play, this tripleawarclub.org website (ladder and forums), the PBEM “MARTI” dice server, and of course the domain name. We use http://www.linode.com for our hosting provider, the service and up-time are great, and it provides us with the special features we need 🙂

    To keep all this going, we’re asking for anything you can send, 10-15-20 or more would really be appreciated. As usual, we use Paypal to handle our donations but you don’t need a paypal account to donate , just a credit card 🙂

    To donate go to

    Correct, thanks for pointing this out.

    Every year, Bung (the guy who runs the TripleAWarClub.org website) pays around $400 to have our live Lobby hosted.  (we host with linode)

    I would encourage anyone who uses the live lobby to donate a little to keep it running for the next year.


  • SFO Founder TripleA Admin

    Drop Linode and move to http://www.digitalocean.com

    It’s MUCH cheaper. You’ll likely drop your costs to about $80 or $100. I’m moving my sites (including this one) to Digital Ocean in the near future.

    Hi everyone,

    This is a copy from another thread, but I wanted to add it to this thread so everyone can see what the 2013 donation drive is about:

    Welcome to 2013 Donation Drive for TripleA engine development.

    It is amazing to see how far we have come in only a few years.  TripleA has gone from a game engine primarily used to play only two games (Revised and AA50) to a game engine with hundreds of different games.  I have put in literally thousands of hours of work to get TripleA to allow for new types of games, such as Global 1940, and even more complex ones such as Total World War.  And I hope to continue contributing to TripleA well into the future, adding new features, improving the user interface, and making everything better.

    Please support us!

    The donation will be primarily done by PayPal, but if you do not have PayPal let me know and we can accept other ways like a check or direct deposit, etc.

    These funds will go towards the following:

    • Future work and development on the Engine

      • Get TripleA to run 1914 World War 1 game rules.  Make the map as well.

      • Continue to improve support for 1940 maps and all other maps until they are perfect.

      • Support future A&A maps.

      • Continue to make TripleA able to support any kind of game we want to play.

      • Get TripleA to play Risk! and other boardgames.

    • Time spent already on developing the Engine

      • Version 1.7 release of TripleA is just a few weeks away!

      • TripleA is no longer just about A&A.  I have spent hundreds of hours making TripleA a general game engine that allows far more customized maps, such as Total World War.

      • TripleA now plays all three 1940 maps including Global 2nd Edition, as well as the new 1942 2nd Edition.

    • Time spent on Promoting and Advertising of TripleA

      • We are now on Desura and also on CNET among many other websites.

      • I will apply for us to be on Steam and/or Origin.

      • I maintain all these website accounts and keep their copies updated.

    To give some idea of the amount of work that has happened since TripleA 1.5.2.1 was released 1 year ago, consider the following:

    • Since 1.5.2.1 was released, there have been around 500 code commits to the engine.

    • For the past year, I have spent, on average, around 20 hours per week, sometimes more, working on the TripleA engine.

    • We continue to maintaine the TripleA Maps repository of all known maps and games, as well as art and all other material related to TripleA.  This repository allows people to easily download any map they want.

    • Right now this is basically a one-man show, with me doing almost everything.

    Okay, so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling java and tripleA since I can’t get tripleA to work on this computer (only on my antique) and all I ended up doing is making it so internet explorer won’t remember my aa.org credentials anymore, which means I have to type them manually again, woot…/sigh.

    TripleA still demands version 1.5.0 of Java even though I have version 7.25 which is the latest version.

    Obviously not donating anything until I get an installer that installs the program and gets it to run.  Both computers run MS Windows 7 Ultimate editions and neither are OEM versions and both are 64 bit.  The only difference is I have multiple user accounts on the one that does not work and only the one account on the one that does work - which shouldn’t matter.  Yes I have it flagged to run as administrator.

    Everyone else in the world uses TripleA without issue.

    I don’t understand what the problem is Jen.

    Buy any $100 laptop off the shelf, and it can play tripleA.  You must be using obscure aftermarket programs, or anti-virus, or have a really strange network setup.
