  1. Ok, I was able to track down an old Mac guru guy at one of the local computer repair shops and he was able to give me a helping hand over the phone. Making progress at the moment, running some checks, etc., and I'm pretty sure I know what the original problem was now and fortunately it is something that can be fixed so working towards that as well. Assuming all goes well, I'll be working on Victory! processing in a while and then hopefully have a more permanent fix in the next day or two. Russ
  2. Hi Guys, At the moment I'm having problems with the Victory! processing hardware. Victory! runs on an ancient Mac/OS so finding help can be tricky. I'll do the best I can but any potential solution is likely to take some time so Victory! processing is currently on hold. Wish me luck. Russ
  3. I imagine that a few (some...anybody?) would like to see my complete interview response so here you go Over time I thought there were some things I could have said better, some things I should have mentioned, etc. but overall I thought it was ok. >> -First of all, could you please tell me a bit about yourself and how you got involved in PBM? I see you’ve been Rolling Thunder’s webmaster since 1999, and that you moderate games as well, but I’m struggling to learn much about Rolling Thunder’s pre-internet history. So I’d love to know how you got involved, and what dr
  4. Thanks! I'm hoping it has a positive overall effect on PBM and maybe we'll see a few new folks added to the hobby My interview responses were quite a bit longer, only a few bits and pieces of mine were included with all the other folks involved in the article, but I thought it came out pretty good. Some very good comments from other folks. It's getting close to 40 years now that I've been involved in the PBM industry and lots of good memories. Hard to believe it has been that long...
  5. Hi Guys, Game 107 will be the same as Games 100-106. 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 107 registration began on March 16th. 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 85 % full The list of available nations is as follows: Baltic States Czechoslovakia Greece No
  6. The Game 106 setup results have gone out so those of you in the game should have them now The first turn is eligible on March 27th 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 106 is a 14-day interval game (affects production multiple calculations for later turns). Note that Game 106
  7. Hi Guys, Update - I didn't get it finished off this weekend but got some prep work done, etc. Right now I'm swamped with SuperNova work for the next few days so it'll be the later part of this week, Thursday or Friday instead. France is still available and Trans-Jordan opened up due to an early dropout so either of those nations can still be claimed by somebody wanting to jump into Game 106. Best wishes, Russ
  8. Hi Guys, We've got enough to start but I've had some medical tests, etc. this week that have soaked up time and next week is a busy one for me so it looks like first week of March. Russ
  9. At player request, here is the copy of SNFindPath that I have. This file has a readme file from Marcus (the developer was Marcus Horstmann, former SN player & great guy) so hopefully this one will work well. If anybody has a more recent version of it please forward a copy to either Pete or myself and we'll make it available. Russ SNFindPath.zip
  10. Thank you again for your efforts I'm sure that the entire SuperNova community, particularly the newer guys, really appreciate the Wiki resource
  11. 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

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.

  15. 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.
