Which of you is running Slay in server mode?

What port did you enable when you set up your firewall to recognize Slay?

Which version of Slay are you using? The islands in version 3.x are different from the islands in version 4.x.

JEE, I tried to send a message to the address you gave, but it bounced. Did you mis-type it?

Slay Icons for Yahoo! Messenger

All, I have taken the Slay icons from Medieval.bmp and converted them to a different format so each can be used as a personal display image in Yahoo! Messenger. This is the image that appears next to your name or handle in someone else's friends list, and next to your name or handle when you're chat...

Indeed, I tend to win many of my games by creative use of trees and by shrewd strategies to control trees. Sometimes it's best to drop a castle or two in to fence off a small grove than to take men off the front to wipe them out. Oh, c'mon, Legs. We all know that you hardly ever win any of our netw...

It's true that many people use other chat tools like IQC and MSN. Our Y!M group has definitely encountered a few people who were reluctant to install Y!M because they were already using one of the other tools, though most eventually installed Y!M.

Not that I want to rain on your parade, but I think part of the problem is that we now have at least three different ways of organizing network games. There's this new chatbox, and there's sid6.7's electronic mail list, and then there is a group of 25 or so people who have been using Yahoo! Messenge...

When you play a challenge game, you are always the first player and you always start with fewer hexes than the other (computer) players. Don't worry, though. Slay assigns fewer hexes in that case to compensate for the advantages of going first. When you play a friendly game, your play position (i.e....
