  1. A moment of sadness for us all I'm afraid. I just received news that Ken Rozhon has passed away. Ken had been with us, playing Victory!, for as long as I can remember - over 20 years and was always a good player, a good competitor to his game opponents and a good friend to his allies and the people that knew him well. The world always feels diminished when we lose a good person and tonight is no exception. Prayers for his family at this difficult time and for his close friends as well. Rest in peace Ken. Thanks for all the good times and memories and we'll see you on the ot
  2. Hi Guys, Game 106 will be the same as Games 100-105. You can choose your nation when you register based on what is available – first come, first serve. Registrations have begun so some nations are already gone but you have your choice of what is currently available: Game 106 registration began on August 4th. If you have more than one choice let me know (in case the first one is gone by the time I get your email) and the faster you get your choice in the better. Game is 47.5 % full The list of available nations is as follows: Algeria Baltic States Central Russia
  3. The Game 105 setup results have gone out so those of you in the game should have them now The first turn is eligible on August 15th but note that I normally backdate all first turns to Day 1 of the first turn cycle since the production multiple doesn't go into effect until the second turn cycle. So, if you need a little extra time on the first turn that's ok, you can get in a little late and still have your turn processed with a Day 1 processing date. Remember that Game 105 is a 14-day interval game (affects production multiple calculations for later turns). Note that Game 10
  4. Congratulations to the victors of Game 95! Austria - Michael K. Johnson Greece - Edwin Paulissen Hungary - Peter Schmitter Rumania - Ken Tewell Yugoslavia - Falco Achieved an alliance victory with a final average score of 601 victory points! 2nd place went to UAE with an average score of 555 victory points and 3rd place to Libya with an average score of 548victory points. Special congratulations as well to Peter Schmitter who took over the #1 Best Nation spot for Hungary with an individual score of 663 victory points! The Hall of Victory! has b
  5. Hi Guys, No serious technical issues - Game 105 has to be set up/run as Game 95 (due to actual serious technical issues) so before I can delete the old Game 95 database and replace it with a new one I needed to finish up the game ending stats/Hall of Victory! stuff for Game 95 (way, way overdue anyway). I could have done a workaround or two to work on the setup first but doing Hall of Victory! first was a little easier and I really needed to update HOV anyway. I just posted the updates to Hall of Victory! so now I can actually work on the Game 105 setup. Should be later this week.
  6. No problem on the RTG side. As Mark said, I would just need confirmation from all remaining players before the end of TP 73. Russ
  7. If it was something that I was adding deliberately then it would only be in new games but this was a case of an existing issue that can't be corrected. As knowledge of it spread it would be used deliberately by more folks and there was only so much correcting I could do when it came up. If I were able to correct the code to remove the issue I would have done so. I can't continue to make partial corrections whenever it comes up so it is something that we'll all have to live with for now. Best that everybody be on the same page, be aware of the issue and when it can occur. There are some
  8. Hi Guys, Game 105 will be the same as Games 100-104. You can choose your nation when you register based on what is available – first come, first serve. Registrations have begun so some nations are already gone but you have your choice of what is currently available: Game 105 registration began on Oct 10th. If you have more than one choice let me know (in case the first one is gone by the time I get your email) and the faster you get your choice in the better. Game is now full I'll start doing some prep work to get the game set up - actual setup will likely be early June (
  9. Hi Guys, Victory! has always had a fighter cover issue where FC forces from two nations could respond when a given province and city were under the control of two different nations. An attack on the city can provoke the response of the FC of the city owner (correct) and the province owner (technically incorrect) because of the way the code is checking ownership (Note: I'm not 100% sure if it works the other way with an attack on a province). As many of you know the game code for Victory! is ancient, dating back to the early 90s and my ability to make changes is limited. I've looked

  11. That was me, just trying to keep things as peaceful as possible. Would rather err on the side of caution than let something go and see it snowball... Russ

  14. The original SNROTE.EXE (self extracting) file in zip format for those having trouble getting to the main website (blocked from a gaming site) or who just want it in a zip. format. Russ Snrote.zip
  15. Hi Guys, Running late on first turn for 103 - first turn always has some extra checks, etc. and my life has been crazy of late. Turns have gone out so those of you who have submitted should have results back now. I forgot to add in the extra morale for all positions for this first turn but I will do so before the TP 2 runs. Best of luck to all! Russ
