Next War WP opponent sought ... challenge is open.

PLZ review next war AARs that are up, this is a scene that is ... challenging.

Hopefully, the Slither Server will help mitigate any CTD issues,

but let's communicate about that if willing. Let's at least play a few turns .... Thanks in advance!!

Pantera4evar has a challenge up for over a week now, Arrocourt 44, passworded ...
maybe his opp. does not know pword? or maybe he doesn't realize he passorded the challenge?
we may never know
<bangs head to Pantera>
maybe I should crack pword?

Pantera pword cracked...I think he resigned w/0 moving, not sure,
not in my games list any more ....

but Leonidas posted an open challenge for Arracourt.

Two other "passworded" challenges abide.

My "Sea Lion" challenge for Sandy will soon appear ... if he does not accept, will open. Plz do not accept passworded "Sea Lion" until confirmed. Thanks! Continuing this gentle reminder to all new players:

Don't "password" your games if seeking any opponent! Let it ride! Thanks!

There are two challenges that still abide, growing on a month long.
Both are "passworded"

I can only decide that, either 1) their opponent (who HAS the password) has declined, or has otherwise started a PBEM game, OR
2) the challenger does not realize that "any" opponent is NOT requested (but they seek any opponent), but (because of the Slitherine routine) is unable to start the game.

So, herewith, in an effort to spur Slitherine to "fix" the password routine, here are the passwords to those games:

Maybe soon SLitherine will realize, that this routine is costing them players and perhaps even new sales

Operation Bagration (to Berlin) password is: downfall

Manchuria 1945 - Last Stand password is: 1233

Slitherine: Fix your stuff.

Hmm, I posted a game on 2/22, and was accepted by Leonidas048, not sure if that is the same chap. Either case, I sent my first turn that weekend, no turn received from that player, I'll post another game tonight PST. time.

I had a game w/ sandy end, but I did not get the endgame screen (I guess he did) and just the email saying game ended and to log in to replay the last move, but still could not find how to look at the last move. I wish they would fix that, or fix the email so that it doesn't say you can do something that you can't do.

I can only see that the game is in "completed games" list and just an option to delete the game, not look at it.

Seeing several "password protected" challenges on the server, a gentle reminder:

If you are seeking any opponent (an open game) please do not password protect your challenges.

And also, post your challenges in "opponent wanted" forum for quickest gaming action!

Have a great gaming day!

Request for suggestions: any thoughts on a scene that is not too complex, yet not too simple, that I can offer to a friend?

Looking for something in the WWII era (but all eras are open) just that WWII seems to be the jump off point. Thanks for your suggestions!

US Civil War up for a few days now, I've played bkil he is reliable. Also, gentle reminder, if you do not password your challenge, you will find an opponent much quicker! Have a great day! (I would do that Civil War, but I've got too many games going ATM) have a great day! PPPS the passwords are in your JSON file

There is a 1862 (Van Dorn variant) open for challenge,
by Stef, I would take that one, but we've already got two scenes going,
He is a worthy and reliable opp :)

Uhhhh, forgive me for displaying my ignorance, but, what is that ?
Just got back into the game after a 7-8 year hiatus.

Hi, the screenshot I posted is of the "Accept Challenge?" screen from the on-line Slither server hoser of games....
Go Play Online ...> enter password ....>
then you go to "Accept Challenge" screen, where you see folkses postings for opponents.

You can also post your challenges for a scene, then other folks will see them and maybe they accept challenge.

PS: don't password your challenges if you post them and you find opponent pretty quick.

I'm going to post a challenge. I'm pretty new to TOAW 4. Never mastered the game, and am learning most of the concepts and controls. If you are willing to tolerate another noob player, please check out my Singapore 42 scenario. I believe that it is rated for beginning players. I'm currently in the Singapore Timezone, and will be for the foreseeable future of Covid19.

Of course, no password!

Thanks.
Darren.

I just ended (resigned) my game (as Axis) against Stefan, well played.
But

Serious drawback on your game end, Slith Lizard Dudes.

If you need some coding help on that,
my rates are reasonable :)
