Sengoku Nagashino Feedback Thread
Hi Sengoku Nagashino players - please deposit your thoughts here for designer digestion as the first round of games resolves.

Please do not directly comment on the situation/players etc. of any active games. Please limit your comments to the variant design itself, as it appears at gamestart. Once a game has completed, it is fair game for analysis, but not before please.

Deep philosophical question about American culture
So I teach at a major public research university. And I keep noticing that my male students in their early 20s seem with a surprisingly high probability to be intimately familiar with the movie Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. This movie came out when I was in high school. And at the same time, they seem ignorant of In Living Color which is readily available on Youtube. So why DBAMTSCWDYJITH and not, for example, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka?

Game set up - NMR
I want to set a game so that it never processes a turn with out orders. I think that is setting “Turn” = 0.
But if I set “Delay”= 2 does that mean a two day/phase pause before that player is kicked? Or is he kicked immediately and there are 2 days for a replacement to appear. In the latter case what happens after the 2 days?

Para practicar, evita los "translators from english"! La lengua inglesa no hace diferencia de masc/fem (in substantives, adjetives, articles...), y además las desinencias verbales son tan mas simples! (Also, some english manners are not usual in latin languages, as the use of the gerund, which is badly seen as "gerundism" when not used to refer to an ongoing action).
Thus, pay attention to:
> la idioma --> el idioma (fem. noun requires fem. article)
> un buen manera --> una buena manera (fem. noun requires fem. article and adjective)
> otros que quiero --> otros que quieren (plural noun requires verb in plural desination)
> ya existe --> aún existe (still/yet, from context)
> personas que habla --> personas que hablan (plural noun requires verb in plural desination)
> recuerdo eso sitio --> recuerdo ese sitio (demonstrative pronoun when there is no noun in the sentence)
> ayuda en buscando jugadores --> ayuda a buscar jugadores ("gerundism")
> los dificuldades --> las dificultades (fem. noun requires fem. article)

Gracias CCR. Soy un principante, pero no usaba un "traslator from english" (como google translate) para escribir esos frases. Esos son mi propios errors. :-)

Pero, despues yo escribía esos, yo verificaba lo que yo escribó. Ahora entiendo que google translate no verifica esos errors. Gracias.

Quiere participar en el partido?

Alistame.
Pero te aviso que yo cometo errores por la similitud del portugués con el español.
Porém aviso-te que eu cometo erros pela semelhança do português com o espanhol.

Latin languages are too difficult for anglo-saxon born speakers (and you are all forgiven, it is a pain for us, too). Exempli gratia, since in latin languages the verb forms agree to the referring subject in number, gender and degree, we don't need to repeat the personal pronouns (it may show up only once in the phrase, or even none if context allows it) - but the verbal desinence must be well placed.

Mm, note "despues" may mean 'after' or 'later'; without the pronoun, it means later, so the correct form includes a pronoun "que" (that).

Then... "Pero, despues QUE escribía esos, verificaba lo que escribí.
(the last verb is only possible in first person, so you don't even need to write 'yo' at all, but it is not wrong writing it - maybe once, before one of the first two other verbs, as writing it three times is a redundance for us)

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?

1 v 1 games on variant maps
I am not a coder (sic) so I was wondering how hard is/was it to code 1 v 1 games? Is it reasonable to think that variant maps (Modern, Ancient Med, etc) could be set up to create 1 v 1 games? The idea of having a larger group of countries to play against each other is intriguing. I just don't know if it possible, or doable.

How old school are you?
I am not very tech savvy so forgive me. I think I started dip on some RSS pages using Netscape at work in maybe 1996(?) does that make sense? All email based through Judges. What were they called? USDJ or something. I remember FROG but they all spoke French. Haha. I used to stand outside my office in the snow smoking a cig with a hand drawn map with about 100 crossing out for each phase using coloured pens. Ah web based interactive maps?!?! Luxury!!!
