Battlefront PBEM

Postby Breaker2 » Tue Dec 23, 2008 5:27 pm

Sure thing. I've been messing around with Battlefront on and off and haven't played it PBEM yet. Happy to try any scenario, any side - as long as not a mega long game. What do you have in mind? I can played a on average a few turns a week, but am flexible. I live in Perth, Aust.
Cheers,
Breaker2

Perhaps we could start a 2 vs 2 on Prokhorovka?

Sounds like an interesting proposal. How would it work?

is it like this : the 1st axis player moves half of the units and then he sends the file to the second axis player, and then to the 1st allied player etc..
but how can we do this ? I mean, how can we send a turn before its completion, and re-open it for the second player ?

If there any questions just post them here and I shall respond as I have run a couple of Multiplays.

you wrote this : "The game is set up as a human v human Game. I will set the game up now, and send it to AGS via email. AGS will then forward it onto one of his Axis Generals for them to have their turn. At the end of their turn they will save the game, and then send it onto the next axis general, this will continue until the last axis general has played their turn. They will then save the game and send it back to AGS. AGS will review the battlefield and then press the RED button to END the turn. They will then save the game game and send it onto the Allied Commander Vorozneh Front. Vorozneh Front will then follow the same steps that AGS followed. "

but when you save the game, which file do you create (and then send) and where is it ? because in this first "half turn" you should not press the red "exit and send" button ?

You need to save the file (from the save game feature inside a current turn) once you finished moving your units and manually attach it to an email and forward it onto the next person to move (you get the save file from the save game folder), also it can't be in secure mode.

My save game folder is found at the current location, but yours will be where ver you have installed the game.

breaker2 : prokhorovka is quite long : 52 turns, so if we can achieve one turn per week, it will take us a year !
