I was going to post a screen of a Weps special, or be smug and post a victory screenie, but this image shows such a degree of awesomeness that it must be seen. [Taken using totally random pops, which I'd like to see more of]. http://xs116.xs.to/xs116/07250/Barnsley.JPG Question is - would anyone not...

Going on that long normally means the host has lost connection. Once you're sure it's not at your end (kicked out the 'net cable, modem overheated, neighbour's hoover interfering with your wireless, etc), press Esc and click 'join game' If the server you were on isn't listed on the metaserver it mea...

I tend to mainly scout inland, seeing how my fighters have to cross the shore / border to get there anyway :wink:

Plus I find battleships good for scouting your immediate neighbour's coastline in defcon 4, seeing as they can't be sunk yet.

After playing around with defcon for a while, I had a quick gander at the demo 2 of Darwinia. 20 minutes after finishing it, I'd ordered the full Darwinia. I'd just bought Rome: Total War the week before too, but for the next month that didn't get a look-in. Haven't done too much piddling about with...

Surely you've both agreed to the settings before the game starts, so there can't really be any complaints from either party? Whoever wins, wins, and they move up / stay where they are in the ladder. Why anyone else should complain is beyone me. Think the guy only got to where he is because of bizarr...

Currently I'm having it that they keep launching at the wrong place, usually when I've reassigned them new targets 3 or 4 times, for instance when chasing down fleets. I think I'm pressing the wrong mouse button or something, and telling them to GO there instead of LAUNCH there. If you know what I'm...

You just beat me to it :P From my perspective it went like this. Defcons 5-4 was me placing my stuff, going for a far-back double-defensive line (may have even been considered noobish in 6-player) in China. I spy a couple of radars, one silo and 1 or two airbases with my forward observation radar. B...

Is the MRI the one where they fill you up with the radioactive fluid and stick you in the torpedo tube? If yes, I've had that done when I had chronic headaches. I think you're referring to CT/CAT scans... If I remember right, technically MRI is a type of CAT, since CAT stands for Computer Aided (or...

Then of course there are those nutters you have over there in America who are hidden up in the mountains at this very minute, convinced that war/disaster is imminent but that they're going to survive it. In all seriousness though, this here where I am is England, and most of those things just don't ...

How about the rule that you have to launch all 10 nukes from 1 silo, then switch to another, and another etc. Especially when you try and take out silos that are on the other side of the world entirely. And of course saying ad nauseum: OMG SPEEEEEEEED! speed 1/2/3 <delete as appropriate> is for n00b...

I'd like to try and get out of Ace's clutches, so I'm going to challenge Mas Tnega. I was holding off until after my humiliation in the tournament, but that's been postponed a bit.

I do believe he's more an Uplink man, so I'd better PM him to make sure I'm noticed.

However, in a 6-player diplomacy with 5 competent players against you, all you have to do is start lowering the score of just one of the other players enough to a point where he/she begins to be separated enough from the other five to cause some "score envy". Then they will begin see the ...

Well, rubbed out very quickly then. Any other day you like, really, seems 8-12 GMT is the available slot. I don't have anything planned at all in life right now, so if you could find a day which suits you we can wait 'til then. As long as it's after the weekend we should all be fine. If Bonsai's pro...
