The alternative setup discussed in this thread
has been added to TripleA as a playable map. So no more edits required.
As the development process is still ongoing there is no version control at the moment.
So you will not be prompted to update the map called World War II v5 Second Edition.
To download the latest release including the new Setup simply remove your installed v5-map from within the “Download maps” dialogue, close the “Download maps” dialogue, reopen it and redownload the map.
This way you will always get the latest map-version (regardless whether you have been prompted about an update or not).
When downloaded choose the alternative setup as shown in the attached screenshot.
Sorry Jennifer but i have to agree with BUBA.
First you will find the best AAA Player there, much better in the mean , then the club only players like in the DAAK or elswhere.
Secound , sync probs are very rare but even if a game chrashes , you have an Autosave. I sometimes watch tv on my Pc or listen to the radio on my pc beside my games and i never had any big issues with triplea.
Third , of course you can let your firewall be active, triplea works good with hard and software firewalls, just forward port 3300 (or any port other you wanna use) and you will be fine .
Unstickied for now, as content and links are outdated.
A possible update is pending.
We also have this article covering almost the same content:
I may something crazy here, but playing and finishing a 12 hour game is something I actually only enjoy off-line… Nothing beats an all-nighter. Sure the wives don’t like it, but they’ll come to terms with it, you’ll see
Nevertheless I agree on all remarks that shutting tripleA down is poor costumer management, as well as unnecessary from a sales point of view. (I even think that most TripleA-players not only have avg 3,5 AA boards at home, they’ll probably also have the hasbro cd-rom, which was a perversion of AA in my humble opinion - enough reason to assume an implied license I say)
WHAT. THE. F*CK. Can we still play networked games on this thing with the latest client? Cause I don’t think they can shut down that.
Seriously? HASBRO??? They made ONE super shtty AA CD-ROM game like 10 years ago and are shutting down ALL of TripleA because of it? I cry bullsht. AA50 is Avalon Games anyway, is the unstable AA50 client gonna be able to work???
There’s like maybe 50 people online on TripleA at any given time, anyways! Holy sh*t! Like these people would be playing a game at home! The ONLY way you’re going to be playing (and finishing!) a 12 hour Axis and Allies game is ONLINE!
Where’s a link to a petition or something? This is ridiculous, as there are MANY of the games available on the TripleA client that Hasbro has NO rights too! I could see them trying to get Classic or Revised taken out but the whole client is just FOOLISH.
Hell, how am I gonna participate in the ladder now, wanted to play matches over TripleA…
Edit: BTW, may I add I have CLASSIC, REVISED, AND AA50 SITTING IN MY CLOSET AT HOME. GATHERING DUST. TRIPLEA WAS THE EASIEST WAY TO FIND OPPONENTS AND GAMES. THANKS A LOT HASBRO. NEVER BUYING ONE OF YOUR PRODUCTS AGAIN.
The consensus is that we’re wrong.
I’m not whining about the dice. It works both ways.
I remember rolling like 18 tanks @3 by hand (Germany stack just inside Russia) and getting like 3 or 4 hits in a table top game 1st roll (don’t remember the exact amount but it was pathetically below average). My stack was defending. I messed up where I placed it. It was against a guy with a screen name of Jonathan Rost (playing the Global 1942 setup).
I lost that game due partly due to that ridiculous outcome (probably would have lost it anyways, Jonathan is really good). Anyways, I understand that outliers occur. HOWEVER, they occur way too often it seems in triplea. However, I’m often I’m a benefactor.
So, it’s good to keep in mind that outlier outcomes, like 4 infantry rolling 4 defense hits 1st round while a stack of planes throws a miss, does happen; but it happens for both sides.
I do believe that AAA hit more than 1/6 overall against bombing runs.
