slay 5.0 won't load up *.sly files

Hi,

I haven't played any of the custom scenarios, so I wanted to try, but I downloaded a couple and put them on my desktop, did file.open and selected it, and nothing happened. What am I doing wrong?

thanks,
Joe

bug on Haus map on Ipad?

Hi Sean, I was playing the Haus map and there was one my my hexes that had a castle on it and that was the only thing left and it stayed in place for two turns until the other player took it over. Or is that just something I wasn't aware of that a castle can stand alone... I have screen shots if you...

Sean, how about making Slay a Vista Sidebar Gadget?

Hi Sean,

Been beta testing Vista now for a while, and I think you could do well if you came out with a Vista Gadget of Slay, seriously, I think you would make a lot of money on this one.

Another idea

Ok, so I am using IE7 now, and one of the nice features is that you can scale up webpages with the zoom feature. Got to thinking, well, this is exactly why the zoom feature is nice, you can make it bigger for hi-res screens... So how about porting Slay into a web app so one can simply scale it up in...

Well after much trying out of different magnifiers, I found one that really does the job nicely. Bigshot Screen Magnifier. Check it out, free demo. http://www.zoomtext.com/software/bs/BigShot212trial.exe Trouble is it is $99 to buy, I think that is too much. But it shows you want a good product shou...

What Screen Magnifier do you use to play on hires screens?

Hi, I would like to know if anyone has a favorite Magnifier software to float over top of Slay. I have a new laptop that has a 1920x1280 screen and frankly it is too small to play comfortably. I have been checking out all kinds of software out there, but most of them don't let you float the screen o...

Centralized server to play?

Hi, kinda new to the Slay board, but was wondering if we could get Slay up on Kali.net to play anytime you want to if you see people waiting to play. Rather then setting up ad-hoc games? I think if you got it up on a server setup like Kali.net more people would see it download it and play it. I have...

Ok, that seems to resolve it. So if I understand correctly, Psuedo code: If exists that a hex has a Palm touching one of the six side AND a coast touching one of the six sides of the same hex Then, spawn a palm in that hex at the beginning of the turn. That seems to make sense and resolve the tutori...

Taking a Time Management class where the class was designed around a Dell Axim PDA that came with the class, and the teacher had us all load up about 15 games to our PDA's and Slay was one of them, played it a few times and was hooked.

Possible themes for Slay is to take on a 3rd dimension. Similar to 3d Chess or Checker coming from a 2d plane like Slay is. Or another theme would be a capture the flag scenario, getting the flag back from one point to another through linking of hexes and one spearman tries to make it from one side ...

I use the rainbow one, I like the clear contrast of who my enemy is. Also, some of those color schemes won't work for people of varying color blindness. I have two friends that are colorblind, one only see black and white and shades of gray, and the other, all reds and greens look brown, so several ...

Just played a game, and yep, I observed a single palm tree in areas with only one color controling the whole area, so no gravestone conditions exist, and that single palm tree spawning another palm all on it's own.
