Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Ovyron, I am not happy with Tabletop Simulator either. But at 75 I don't know how many more good years mentally that I have left. So I have to take what I can get to put my games out there. I am going to have to start trolling the local universities/colleges game development students and local game ...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Ovyron, Steam is quite computer resources intensive when running a high-resolution, 3D, full motion game. I bought Chess Ultra and played one game, so far. I have a gaming laptop and Chess Ultra consumed so much resources that the computer would barely run one of my MS Office apps. However, when run...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

To me rule checking is a must. I remember trying to play Magic the Gathering online and it was very frustrating to have my opponent telling me how I should be doing things and not doing others and how I was forgetting to do things, I didn't play more than one game... Hi Ovyron, It sounds like Magic...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

HGM, Yesterday, I created and made public 3 versions of my CSC Legendary Armies game in the Tabletop Simulator in Steam. The 3 armies are: Classic Army, Knights Army, and Colossal Army. As soon as I get some 3D models of my Longbowman (Archer) and Onager (Catapult), I will create the 4th main army, ...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Note that Fairy-Max does not 'assign' values to pieces any more than an analytical balance assigns a weight to objects placed on the scales; it is the user that must figure out the values that are intrinsic to the pieces by selecting the proper calibrated weights on the other scale to achieve count...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Ovyron, Maybe we could try it this week. What country do you live in and what would be a good time for you to play a game? The link to download my ZRF files is: http://castlesiegechess.com/02_la_03_08_la_c_game.html There are 3 different screen resolutions. The 800 pixel one is the most popular for ...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Ovyron, yes, an IP address box did display, but I had no one to connect to at the time so I abandoned the process. I believe it was the Direct Pllay TCP/IP Service Provider selection. I looked up 'Direct Play TCP/IP Service Provider' on google. It seems it is an old technology and people are having ...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Ovyron, That would not surprise me, but on their site they say you can play people world wide. When I selected the Net menu item, the dropdown had a couple of choices. I tried the 'join host/session....' which changed the dropdown to 'Direct Play 8 Serial Service Provider, or Direct Play 8 TCP/IP Se...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Ovyron, Zillions supposedly can be played online, but I can't figure out how to make it work or even it still works. On the Zillions menu, 'Net' seems to be where a user can create or join a session. I could not find any information on their site about how to start an online session for one of their...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Thanks Ovyron. I hope that I can have Castle Siege Chess playable online on the CirSquare board sometime this year. HGM is doing a great job making Castle Siege Chess playable in Fairy-Max. The board design had to be changed to fit a square board design. So the board design went from square to a com...
