@Valladares Hello there!
I’m so new, I have never used this particular software, and so my reply and intro seem merged into one post.
I’m CrazyIvan, and I don’t play anymore due to lack of time to meet up with all the guys I used to play with back in the day. I got my introduction to Classic back in the 1980’s, and have never played any other version of Axis & Allies, well, unless you count Original and second edition as being separate games. Without using the board and pieces, I have played a couple versions of the 1998 computer game, but that doesn’t want to play nicely with my windows 10 computer, so I right now cannot actually play at all.
I recently discovered a thing called YouTube, and will be posting videos there within the next month or so. Right now, as I start the learning process, I’m going to be looking for help and suggestions on what kind of webcam I need to be able to capture the entire board. Right now, the videos I have made are either clear - but only show a part of the game board, or show all or mostly all of the board, but the pieces are so small as to be hard to see, and the spaces are also too crowded to clearly show the action, so looking for suggestions on how to position the webcam, the lighting, the board, and get the perfect zoom in on the game board.
I don’t know anything about the newer versions of the game, and for right now am only interested in classic second edition games. I found some interesting content on youtube, and that is how I ended up here, and am looking forward to getting some playing time in, making a few videos, and playtesting some house rules, as well as multi-board games using the classic board and pieces. Currently, I have no way to setup/play even a two board game, let alone a 4 board version. Later on this month, I’ll try to at least setup a two board version, but the cameras I have now will not be able to show much other than how the boards connect.
Anyway, there was a fellow that issued an “Open Challenge” about a month ago, and I thought that I might as well try to get a game or three with him, if he has the time and interest.
