289 3/13/2017 12:44:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Ok, I'm back. I think the next step is for Asp / Randy to initiate a new Game for the 3rd Ed. Successors Module inside of ACTS. That means this game, which is a Generic Module, will terminate.

Let me know my next action. From here on, I can turn over actions in about 24 hrs.

Just to be safe, I am duplicating this message over 'regular' email.
288 3/12/2017 10:10:00 PM Turn 1 Lion Message Here here
287 3/11/2017 11:03:00 AM Turn 1 Star Message So what now?

In any case I'm available, ready and hungry for Successors!
286 3/7/2017 6:19:00 PM Turn 1 Star Message I m sure. I have spoken with the creator of the module.
285 3/7/2017 6:12:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Well, we should give the Old Star, David, a chance to upload the Star=Observer file. It might take a few days.

Also, we should confirm that ACTS actually has the 3rd Edition cards supported. Are we sure it's not 2nd Ed.?
284 3/7/2017 3:08:00 PM Turn 1 Star Message We will manage cards from ACTS and use vassal only for the map, armies etc. I can manage these things in vassal even as an observer.

I am open either on continue this one or start another.
283 3/7/2017 3:05:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Yes but now the Starting Over option is more attractive - ACTS will manage the Tyche Deck. That's compelling.

If we can get David / Star to upload is Observer File, we can continue...

Either way is good.
282 3/7/2017 3:02:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message Sorry, I don't see how that solves our problems. We still want to use Vassal to see things on the board, and we would still have to start over. Has David's log file giving up ownership showed up yet?
281 3/7/2017 2:58:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Wow that's the way to do it! Can we set this up? I'm in 'till the bitter end! :)
280 3/7/2017 12:13:00 PM Turn 1 Star Message I think I have a solution. There is a 3rd edition ACTS module in the "custom modules" section. I tested a little and it looks to work well. No need for vassal log in in thin case.

http://acts.warhorsesim.com/gameListCustom.asp?moduleID=1363
279 3/6/2017 11:35:00 AM Turn 1 Horse Message Hmm that is an interesting problem. One thing, I don't see that Star has uploaded the latest file, which is the one where he became Observer. I think that should be file 043-Star-Draw-Became-Observer.vlog or something similar.

If you don't have that file, then that explains why you can't log in as Star.

That being said, I'm ok with starting over, as I think the game will move much better now.
278 3/5/2017 3:39:00 AM Turn 1 Star Message Hello everyone!

One big problem is that I cannot log in as "star" in the vassal logfiles. I guess that the only solution is to make the map as it is now in a new logfile and each one will login again.

On the other hand the deck cannot be restored as it is now so I don't know how functional this solution may be.

Unless there is another solution that I don't have in mind, you may decide if we continue like I said, start a new game or even call back David to continue. I have no problem in either case.

I hope all these won't reduce your fun!


277 3/4/2017 8:54:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message Done. Welcome Dimitris!

274 2/27/2017 9:14:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message To Star to draw cards, after which Horse to start Turn 2 play.
273 2/22/2017 5:48:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message To Star to draw cards, after which Horse to start Turn 2 play.

270 2/20/2017 12:01:00 AM Turn 1 Horse Message Ok, now we have to go around again and Only Draw 5 Tyche Cards. File 40 uploaded. Please take the first draw, as ACTS cannot manage it. On to Asp.
269 2/19/2017 12:24:00 PM Turn 1 Star Message Done
268 2/15/2017 1:58:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Star, you are up to place Reinforcements, and look at Rule 5.1 - you get your units in the Dispersed Box back! Go go go! :)
267 2/14/2017 7:07:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message Star is up to place reinforcements.
266 2/13/2017 11:37:00 PM Turn 1 Lion Message Done
265 2/13/2017 12:16:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message My reinforcements placed. To Lion for reinforcements.
264 2/13/2017 11:59:00 AM Turn 1 Horse Message Yes, by rule, play goes clockwise, I choose Horse be first.

New file uploaded:
All I did was place my Reinforcements. On to Asp.
263 2/13/2017 11:49:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message And which faction will go first this turn?
262 2/13/2017 11:48:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message Nope, we all need to place reinforcements, and only then should we draw cards.
261 2/13/2017 11:41:00 AM Turn 1 Horse Message True. Especially in this particular case, in fact.

But darn, that means my file is crap and I'll have to re-draw. Sigh.

Ok, I'll make a new file, and I will only place reinforcements. My Movement and failed Siege Rolls still count.

So head's up - we have to go around to all players, Draw your 5 cards and then only place Reinforcements.
260 2/13/2017 11:40:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message We're not ready for turns yet! Everyone first gets to place their reinforcements, then we all draw cards.
259 2/13/2017 11:38:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message Mark, you don't get to decide the order of factions, only who goes first. The order will remain the same (last turn it was Star, Horse, Asp, Lion).

257 2/13/2017 11:35:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message We should do reinforcements before drawing cards, as the cards might affect where we place reinforcements.

Horse wins tie-breaker for lowest VPs, and should decide who goes first.
248 2/12/2017 12:21:00 PM Turn 1 Lion Message My bad; done
247 2/12/2017 2:39:00 AM Turn 1 Horse Message Yes we need file 34-Turn1-Lion-05 to be uploaded by Lion, then Star can start Turn 2.
246 2/11/2017 6:08:00 AM Turn 1 Asp Message I don't see Lion's last file in the Drive.

236 2/5/2017 5:06:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Yay! A friend in my game club reminded me that these games can be quite lengthy, and that hey, this program doesn't run on mobile devices, so it can be a pill to get time on. As long as we are patient, we retain our investment in time. Cool.

So, I see that I don't wanna be Usurper for the entire next turn, so I will sit with the Rhodians, add one Merc CU to Lysimachus, and play my last card as 2 OPs to Train a CU. That CU is now visible in Vassal on the Record Track, at the bottom left.

Since Star also paid 4 OPs to train a CU, I put that one on the Record Track too. Note that the CU's are tagged with their Faction ID.

File 31 blah blah uploaded, on to Asp!
235 2/5/2017 5:30:00 AM Turn 1 Star Message Done! File uploaded. horse is uP!

232 1/29/2017 6:57:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message Sorry, I'm no help there.
231 1/29/2017 3:13:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Quick question - I would like to update the card support in ACTS for Successors to 3rd Edition. I think this comes down to simply updating an XML file, easy peasy, but does anyone know the procedure? I started with a message in the ACTS Feedback page, but it's been days and no response.
230 1/26/2017 9:58:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message Star, please take your turn.
229 1/21/2017 3:49:00 PM Turn 1 Star Message Will take turn tomorrow

215 1/11/2017 6:55:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Ok, one last minor correction, Horse lost 2 VP when I lost Control of the Hellespont. Everything fixed now in file 026. On to Asp.

212 1/11/2017 5:14:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Ok, being the turd that I am, I fixed both issues. The 026 file is "clean".
211 1/11/2017 4:53:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Yes, I see that now, but it would be more clear if there was a List of Major Port Cities.

My roll then was really a 3, and Horse is -1 (mercenary) CU.

I can fix it now...
210 1/11/2017 4:45:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message So, Horse is right: 1 siege point, -1 merc.
209 1/11/2017 4:44:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message Correction: Just to be clear, without a fleet a siege roll on Rhodes would be modified by -2. With a fleet, it's modified by -1 (just because it's Rhodes).
208 1/11/2017 4:44:00 PM Turn 1 Asp Message Just to be clear, without a fleet a siege roll on Rhodes would be modified by -1. With a fleet, it's modified by -1 (just because it's Rhodes).
207 1/11/2017 4:41:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message LOL, sorry to be a butt-head (major!) but in Comment #195, Star applies a modifier to the Siege Roll that I don't see in Rule 15.2. If you accept my anal rule-lawyering, the Siege is still successful but you are down -1 (mercenary) CU. Ya I know, I hate me too.
206 1/11/2017 4:30:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Thanks again guys, file is up:
026-Turn1_Horse-04.vlog

If I read the rule correctly, after moving into Rhodes I can only get 1 Siege Roll, leaving 1 MP unspent.
205 1/11/2017 4:13:00 PM Turn 1 Horse Message Nobody in range to Intercept that. Since I have a Fleet, I don't get the -1 on the Siege Roll, and inflict one Siege Counter on Rhodes, no losses.

193 1/6/2017 10:13:00 AM Turn 1 Horse Message Star! Sorry you are swamped at work, that must be a drag. Still we are hoping you find some time to crank out your turn! Hope all is well with all of you, and thanks!

It's a habit - if I run a script, it might look for certain characters in the file name.

Star is up!
