What do you think of this? I was getting my rear kicked but managed to survive and get a gold cross. This is with Cmass beta 4.8.

I'm up to 75 missions with a single commander. Its unbelievable! I've never seen so many ships on screen at once such as in the attack enemy planet mission. I've been king of the space zone one minute and then running around like a dog with my tail tucked between my legs seconds later! Its up to bet...

A nice new bug to fix

I've sent this bug via email but will post it here as well. The repair bots will repair your engines and your ability to accelerate/turn will show going back up to the max for your ship but the ship will not move any faster than was possible when the engines were blown. If you haven't tried the new ...

Leon, You are just starting to learn the game. I've been playing it off and on for 2 years. 4 or 5 of us got together and played network games to help Sean debug the latest version. Sean even joined in with us a few times. You can see the effect in version 4.2a which now does network games almost fl...

Leon,

Files sent. Good luck!

Sid, 1 vs 1 games are easy to win, just remember Napoleon's favorite tactic "divide and conquer". As for not being intended to play this way, Slay is designed this way and its a legitimate though not very interesting game. The trick is to force the comp player to starve in an area but leave a path f...

Leon, If you will send me a message with an email address I'll mail you the .SLY files that show how to play "maximum" and win 1 vs 1 and computer goes first and on very clever. It took 8 days which is longer than I expected. My only excuse is that my solution was not even near optimum. We now know ...

Leon, The "proof" is right in front of your eyes. You are using automove. The computer is a LOUSY player. The only time I ever use automove is on the very last move of a game where there is no possible way the comp can screw it up. Your point seems to be that YOU can't beat the computer in a 1 vs 1 ...

So I'm a glutton for punishment. I had to try a game 1 on 1 and the computer went first and it was very clever. I've never played such an uneven game in my life. I won easily in 5 days. The secret to winning under these conditions is to cut your opponent off the first move so that several of his men...

Here is the list of changes I've suggested to Sean so far. Its by no means all that he can or will modify for the new version. I expect that many - but not all - of these will be implemented. Post your comments and suggestions. What would you like most to see in the new version? 1. The biggest compl...

Nice graphics but can't stand the "play only the first mission" bit. There are a few bugs in the design ships screen. Click on the missiles tab and take a look at the missile info text. I can't yet see how you implemented the scoring system. Are there any new medals, etc? When a mission finishes, th...

It can happen but is usually the result of an inexperienced player. Most of the time there is a way you can position your men so you can either cut off the opponent or get him to move so you can get through his defenses.

Why on earth would you play 1 on 1 games? They're not much fun.

It looks like Sean decided to use a commercial BBS package.

So I'll start things off by explaining a few of the requirements. You can browse the messages as a visitor but can post only if you have registered a username/password and have logged in. :) There are smilies on the side that can be applied by clicking on the one you want. Sean's selection is limite...
