How to install maps using the “Download Maps” feature inside TripleA (the preferred method)
1. Run and start up TripleA. Then click “Download Maps…”
2. Take the following link, and copy it into the text box, then click “List Games”
3. Scroll to the map you want, which is “World War II Global”, and then click “Install Game”
4. Repeat process to install any other maps you want, then restart TripleA. Done!
There are other helping threads in the Software section of this forum.
Sounds like you aren’t putting in the correct password for your A&A forums account.
If it’s working right, then you should be able to click “test post” prior to your turn and a test post will come up in the appropriate forum thread.
Doublecheck that you have play-by-forum turned on, that you have the right password and account name, and that you have the correct game id in the pbf section.
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.
i guess we should leave it with solution 1.
most players will not be aware of the need to use edit mode to delete units, even if I post a giant news item somewhere
Yes, I agree. It would be difficult to bring this to everyone’s attention.
ps: triplea 1.5.1 is out
Great, I will test it this evening.
