• @Subotai:

    Again, measured against other alternatives, the only live game competitor being GTO, is very far from the level of TripleA. TripleA has many more options than GTO, the only thing that is better at GTO is the graphics.

    And TripleA has not been shutdown, I’ve had more than 1000 downloads (stable+unstable versions) since the DMCA letter arrived at sourceforge.

    sorry, I have to provide one small correction to your statement above. there is ONE other live game competitior; it is www.battleforces.com. It provides some functionality and gameplay which is similar to Axis and Allies, and is also totally browser-based. hope that you’ll try it.


  • You may want to check the TripleA website. There is a new unstable available for download, version 1.1. You’ll have to download maps to it by copying URL’s that you can find on the site into a text box to add the games. The maps are crisper and the AA50 maps show the leaders of each country next to their capitals.


  • Now AA42 is available on TripleA unstable, the map is the Revised map, but it doesn’t matter. There are a few bugs both in the map and in the game engine itself, but the bugs are few and it is fully playable, just use the edit mode to get around the few bug issues.

    For all I know, battleforces could be even (subjectively) better than A&A but as long is it not A&A, then it is another game, even if the game mechanics are the same. And TripleA have many mods and maps which uses the same game mechanics as TripleA. Personally, I play only the A&A games, AA50 and AA42.


  • Any news on status of TripleA?


  • @Brain:

    Any news on status of TripleA?

    Check the TripleA developers page…. 🙂


  • I checked but didn’t see anything about their legal battle.


  • There has not been any legal battle, and TripleA never really got shut down, b/c I made stable version 1.0.0.3 available elsewhere, and now there’s a legal unstable version 1.1 available.


  • What is the difference between the stable and unstable versions?

  • Moderator

    Stable You can play online through the AAA lobby. Unstable you have to play locally or through Hamachi

  • Moderator

    BTW, if you sift through their Forums, You will find a few links on where you can DL AAA.

    It is still available, and offers AA50


  • I have the stable version but not the unstable version.

  • Moderator

    yeah AA50 is only available on the unstable version


  • Does unstable mean that the game has flaws?


  • Unstable means that this version has bugs, among other things.


  • What are the other things?


  • Ok, probably only bugs…  🙂


  • I think unstable means it has no lobby…

    Anyway, I managed play with old Revised maps (modding IPC to PU), but for some reason AA50 doesn’t work

    It’s a improved AI from last time anyway… now the UK attacks z5 round 1 and both UK and Japan buy ICs! Great!  8-)


  • What do you mean when you say “it has no lobby?”


  • Lobby is a service to host multiplayer games. Without it, you have to make the connections yourself and is difficult, at least for me


  • Thank you Subotai and Funcioneta for helping me. +1’s


  • Oh I almost forgot. Thank you as well Deaths Head 420.  +1


  • Veqryn says that TripleA is back up and running.


  • Just to conclude this thread for any people that read it:

    TripleA has not been shut down. It has been modified in order to avoid any legal issues. But it works, has a lively and mannered community, a brand new version enabling map-downloads in a breeze and an improved AI (though the real challenge and fun still lies in the live online games, or PBEM, of course.)
