Topic: New 0.8p Round - First in almost 4 years!

New round starting August 11, 2012.  Sign-ups are now open.

Be aware the game has not run in a long time.  Both the game and myself are a bit rusty.  Be prepared for start delays, bugs (more than usual), missing ticks, and maybe even a restart or two.

I plan to re-write the code at some point to bring it up to date.  When that happens, most likely the game will go back to basics like when it first started, with features slowly being re-introduced.

Re: New 0.8p Round - First in almost 4 years!

lol.

If I remember correctly... before a round starts, you were able to research so that the research starts as soon as the round starts... however, none of the researching is working except the first one. Hope this isn't going to be an issue for when the round starts.

Re: New 0.8p Round - First in almost 4 years!

I shall look into that.

Oh my! This is ... unexpected. I was just browsing through my bookmark folder, sorting out some stuff and happened to click my AW bookmark. And you're starting the game back up?

Hummteetaa.. I shall look into this.

Is Lithium going to come back by any chance?

Re: New 0.8p Round - First in almost 4 years!

You don't know Lithium members then.... If there's an Alliance, they will come.....

Re: New 0.8p Round - First in almost 4 years!

Wow, I don't know which is more impressive.  That the game is starting again, or that I remembered my login and password for this forum!!! smile

as for age Deedi, I a fairly certain you are probably still younger than I was when we were playing this... so you're probably good to go!! smile
