There is nothing bizarre on this part of the posting linked above:
Alternative instructions for unblocking TripleA:
1. Open up “Gatekeeper”
Gatekeeper options are found in Apple menu > System Preferences… > Security & Privacy > General tab under the header “Allow applications downloaded from:”
2. Change “Allow Applications Downloaded From:” to “Anywhere”
3. You should now be able to open and use TripleA (and any other software).
Did you try that?
Also be sure to have the latest version of the Java Runtime Environment installed.
I don’t know which version comes preinstalled with your OS.
I am looking for LSSAH
he is the guy who created a ton of the unit art for TripleA, as well as creating some very very beautiful maps (Empires, and Space / Galaxy Map).
I managed to find Empires in full form, and I found the relief image for the galaxy map, but have not found any other files for the galaxy map.
If anyone either has lssah’s contact info, or knows where i can find him or get to him, could you post it or pm me with it?
If anyone has the Galaxy Map (for the old triplea), anything for it, i would love to have it.
OK apparently I can’t quote anything with a link either, but for those Mac users trying to get this to work…
For those still looking, you can download the legacy JRE 6 installer by googling “Java for OS X 2015-001”. I’d post the link, but I can’t :(. Anyhow it seems to keep getting moved / hidden but I found it in kBase (supportapplecom) and you can search there with the following article id: “dl1572”.
Welcome to the forum, jalingo, and thank you for your input.
Please note that the TripleA version you are referring to, is outdated.
So is the JRE 6, too.
TripleA 1.9 will be released soon, replacing version 126.96.36.199, and it needs Java 8.
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 .
TripleA is cheat-proof
That’s not entirely accurate. There is a scenario I can think of in which some shady circumstances can occur - in a particular scenario.
It’s safer to say - Axis and Allies is cheat proof, as long as your dice are done through a server - and you pay attention to the actual game mechanics.
Well I’m mostly comparing it to Battlemap, where it would be easy to add units here or there. If extra units are discovered, there’s no way to tell if it’s cheating or an unintended mistake.
In my experience, it’s the unintentional mistakes that most often mar Battlemap games. Consequently, many players spend alot of time checking maps and moves for accuracy.
With TripleA the above scenarios don’t happen, because you’d have to use edit to add in units that shouldn’t be there. And any edit is clearly visible in the game history.
