Re: Gameplay is now merely second-guessing, not tactics

I really think the point is focused too much on tactics and not so much on risk management. You are playing a game that has many random variables you need to consider. There is a reason why certain players can keep a great winning streak when it comes to the leaderboards and consistently play well a...

Re: Too many units makes game unplayable (game #32612)

Hi, don't know if this should be filed in technical question or bugs. In game #32612 zumbiz - jaacoppi there are way too many units, I'd say about a hundred on each side. The game was created with no advanced settings (at least that's what the opponent says) and should be just a normal game. Howeve...

Re: Hostage: Cannot place in all green zones

Could you perhaps post the game match/server or picture of the map? If you'd like I could go over what you could (could have) do as a strategy.

Re: My Friends key is invalid.

I've asked this question before, but no one's seemed to get back to me. Are you still having this issue? It seems to amend itself over time.

Re: Being connected to offline opponents

The purpose of this game is to be slow-paced 'email' chess. Play other games, it does not require the other player to be online at all times. Just submit your turn and you will be notified when another turn is ready :) Qoojo - For now there are known server issues. They are being worked on and this ...

Re: What really minimal specs are requiered for FS?

I have a friend who's played it on a netbook no problem. Really the only thing that is intensive in this game is the background - so if worse comes to worse disabling the menu background under options should make it run on just about anything made in the past 6-7 years.

Re: Does the free copy for a friend come with the soundtrack

As far as I know the gifted copy does not include the soundtrack. The soundtrack, however, will be available stand-alone shortly :)

Re: Playing games on another server

I will copy-paste what I posted on another topic. You will need your friends in the same server to play with them - and right now there is no way to tell what other servers the games are on as this was a very quick solution so people could at least play the game with the load of people. Currently th...

Re: Performance sometimes drops significantly

It's a known issue, it will be worked on after the servers are fixed. For now disabling menu backgrounds under options fixes the problem for most. In your case I would try reinstalling the game, or verifying the game cache (if you are on steam). Also try running in windowed mode just as another way ...

Re: Featured Game won't load

Currently that is how it works. (It would be an obvious problem to overlook by the programmers when this was in beta. We weren't completely useless in testing ;) ) This is a temporary solution to the server problem and things will be fixed with them soon. Reading the mode7blog is a very useful way t...

Re: Friend gifted game, Game won't launch after install.

Have you restarted or your computer since it was installed onto steam? Might sound like a stupid question, but sometimes I have to do that with my steam games. Also: Try launching the game without steam.

Re: Invisible walls

Are your display drivers up to date? I would also try verifying your game cache/disabling menu backgrounds to see if it helps any
