1900 for vDip: Progress Report (ongoing)
As mentioned in another thread, I've been working on the code and assets necessary to port Baron M. Powell's variant 1900 to vDip and/or webDip.

In order to keep myself accountable in some fashion to actually complete this task, and not just talk about it, I've created a small project plan where I can mark my progress.

Hello!
I have been banned from webDiplomacy because Zultar wants it to be a safe space for neo-Nazis and other white supremacists.

You nice people will have to put up with me instead (until I get banned here, I guess).

I've been Boursed!!! 2016
Hi all, when Amby and I were recording our recent podcast (diplomacygames.com) the topic of Bourse came up, and I got really excited and thought that I would try to get another game of this variant running...

Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

To Everyone in Furnace of Affliction
I'm really sorry, as I was trying to fix the Indonesia Build bug the game sent everyone into CD and cancelled itself. This was because I forgot about another bug - if you enter all holds, it counts as an NMR even if saved, so when I tried to advance the game 2 phases it assumed everyone had NMR'd twice (even though I'd set hold orders for everyone).
Captainmeme (1046 D Mod (B))
Thu 10 Aug UTC
I'll set up another passworded, choose your country game - PM me for the password if you were in Furnace of Afflication, and then please choose the same country you received last time.
CCR (1493 D)

Sure. 50 bet it was.
Captainmeme (1046 D Mod (B))
Thu 10 Aug UTC
And was it hidden draw votes or public? That's the only other option I need.
Technostar (1168 D)
Thu 10 Aug UTC
There's another thing, too - everyone involved did not get back their points. I got back 15 because I went under my starting 100, though I can assume that most other people have a surplus of points and will need to be manually refunded the 50 D they lost.
Captainmeme (1046 D Mod (B))
Thu 10 Aug UTC
I'll go ahead and give everyone their points back too (upon PMing me so I can confirm you were in the game, since I don't recall the full list of people). If you got refunded because you went under 100, consider them on the house as a result of the inconvenience.

I *think* it was hidden draw votes, but I need confirmation before I set up the game.

Also, sorry everyone, chatlogs are not recoverable =/

I believe that we've all been marked with 2 "missed phases" as well against our respective reliability ratings.
Technostar (1168 D)
Thu 10 Aug UTC
It seems different people were affected differently. I only gained 1 missed phase and Samj didn't gain any.
BobRoss (1675 D)
Thu 10 Aug UTC
I didn't get any additional missed phases either.

In any case, unfortunate that a small bug turned in such a hassle for you Cap. Thanks for taking care of the issue and re-organizing everything. Hope this game will be back on soon as Iran was surely rocking the map.

only thing difficult for me is that i know i had several unread messages that likely have lots of relevance but i don't know their content ... oh well, shit happens :)
Captainmeme (1046 D Mod (B))
Thu 10 Aug UTC
I've set it to HDV. I'll see what I can do about the Reliability Rating implications... We actually have a log of which game every NMR came from so if I can get Oli back it's a really simple fix (just removing all NMRs with that GameID from the database).
Ugh, Captain, so sorry you've got to deal with this. Thanks for trying to fix the Indonesia problem. Really hope the NMR bugs can be resolved accurately, it's one of our most important statistics I think.
BobRoss (1675 D)
Thu 10 Aug UTC
Actually i'd like to get back at my statement of not getting an additional NMR - I now suddenly received 1 NMR + 1 CD. This means my RR dropped by 2 full points.

Others might want to check as well if they do have a sudden change in RR after all.

Yeah, how weird. I was not initially hit with an NMR, even half an hour ago, but now I have another NMR and a CD. Zero CDs is a big point of pride for me. Unfortunate how many bugs are pooping up. At least 4 of my NMRs are not real at this point. Bah, not the thread for my whining. I'll be patient.
lol...popping, not pooping. Though I suppose either works, really.
Technostar (1168 D)
Fri 11 Aug UTC
And now my NMR and CD count both ticked up by 1 again. At least we waived the RR requirement for the new game because mine's down to 85.

Hope the issues with NoNMR and NoCd can be sorted out soon, I was just prevented from joining a different game because I "seem to be having trouble keeping up with the orders in the ones you already have."

The Desert Fox (1011 D)
Fri 11 Aug UTC
Yes I guess we all gained nmr's and cd's. my rr is now 97 and I received my first cd.
Hirnsaege (1784 D)
Fri 11 Aug UTC
Just for the records: I got +1 CD for sure, and maybe one NMR too.
My RR dropped from 99 to 97.
BobRoss (1675 D)
Fri 11 Aug UTC
Perhaps a good idea to send a PM if you see one of your neighbours hasn't re-entered the game yet? I assume most people will know the name of the player behind the empire they've had negotiations with. Some people might not pay attention to the forum that much?
With my +1 CD and +2 NMR, my games limit has been enforced, meaning I can no longer join games because I have too many going on for whatever the algorithm is. I'll join the game as soon as this problem has been resolved, or as soon as I take over enough CD'ed games.

It is, though not on the vDip HoF chart. But maybe that just needs to be recalculated now.

The HoF stuff is unrelated to Furnace, it's Oli attempting to iron out some bugs in the ranking system. Obviously it's not quite done yet.

I have heard that the talent level at VDIP is slipping drastically after the departure of Cypeg and myself. So I have decided to end my sabbatical in the Himalayas studying Sun Tzu's art of war in a Tibetan monk's temple to teach all of you students a higher level of tactical and strategic warfare. And yes, that means all you southern, chicken eating, single tooth, in-breds from below the Mason Dixon line.

If you are up to the challenge and a position is open, I will grace you with my presence in this world war.

Thank You.

obsolete Sengoku variant
Hi all, designer of Sengoku here. I would love to get the latest version of Sengoku in use on this system, as it is much more balanced. Found here: http://dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Sengoku
Even if the DP system, can't be used, the version at http://nairenvorbeck.angelfire.com/ is still better than the one in use currently. Poor Mori needs a fair chance :-) Anyone willing/able to help me get these implemented?

In-game messaging with multiple players without Global Chat
Hi everyone,
I was wondering if there is a way to send messages to multiple players without using the Global Chat. It would very practical for players that are in a 2+ people alliances as they don't need to rewrite everything again for each ally. Is there such a thing yet? If not, I hope a developper passes by and makes a note of this. Thanks!

Public messages hidden from non-players
I noticed public messages in games are hidden from non-players, even for finished games. Does anyone know if this was a deliberate decision on vDip? On webDip these are visible to non-players, which is interesting for looking at the player dynamic or end of game commentary.
