    The objective for Axis & Allies .org this year is to set up the new forums. Also figuring out how to reduce the cost of file storage.

    I’m not here as much as I want to be but I love the site and I have to keep my badge streak going. Thanks DJ.



  • New forum should have a feature that once a game is finished only the last savefile remains and all the other ones get deleted automatically. Not sure if something like that or something similar could be implemented.

    I’ve thought about this. It’s almost wiki style. The trouble is permissions. You only want the players involved to overwrite the file.

    Another solution is to ask everybody to bring your own cloud storage: Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.

    +1, this is exactly what I posted in the TripleA poll

    You can add an option in the topic that basically concludes the game. Once a game is concluded, the last save file is all that remains. Everything else will be deleted. It will also help you keep track of all ongoing games and game progress if you feel like it.



  • Hey Ive just downloaded the Axis and Allies starter pack but still cant play the game on my PC.
    I have played Axis since I was 8 and cant wait to get back into it.
    Any ideas why I cant play ?

    I would have gone gold but the damn Canadian dollar has dropped so low it would have been about Cdn $75.00 for me!!!  :x


  • 2017 '16

    Shhhhhhhh!  😮



  • @Wolfshanze:

    Shhhhhhhh!  😮

    That’s a good one, I get it… to be fair to you I’m suppose to crap on anyone who talks poorly about the Canadian dollar right?.

    Well you won that round, I’ve got nothing…

    (but I do feel a little sore below the belt considering that you made your joke directly at me while knowing I’m from Canada, but in comparison… it’s all the same delivery of the same joke I suppose).


  • SFO Founder TripleA Admin

    The discount we be available for 31 days as soon as I have the 2017 stuff ready. So it’ll be something like Jan. 11 - Feb. 12, 2017.

    I would like to donate now (and also in the 2017 support drive). I don’t see a donate button and searching or “donate” didn’t help. Please advise.

    Thanks,
