Looking for tournaments?

Apparently, there's an FS tournament community on DevGaming . All the currently running tournaments are already in progress and not accepting new players, but it looks like they start a new one almost every week on Sunday. Correction: Tournaments open for registration on Friday and play begins on Su...

Re: Ghosts are not ducked when they should be

Also aiming, which has the same issue, though a bit subtler.

Re: Wishlist thread

Speaking of which, when a GL or RL fires their grenade/rocket I think it should count as a "last seen" position of their ghost, since the firing line is visible to you anyway, you know exactly where they are, and you're going to put the ghost there anyway, so why not handle it for us? The only issu...

This is already in the game. You have to click the ghost once to select it, and then you can drag it around.

Re: "Essential" features

Games timeout after 2 weeks, and the player who did not submit a turn loses, unless the game is still on turn 1, in which case it's a draw, effectively enabling the "round 0" you're asking for, without creating the need for another turn before the actual game starts, which would be annoying at PBEM ...

Re: Duplicate - an explanation

I asked about this too, and didn't really get an answer, but someone did point out that duplicates give away the positions of the boxes in disputed matches. I don't know if that's why we don't have them anymore or not.

Re: Frozen Synapse guide?

More information on his guide here . There will be a basic version for free, and my understanding (correct me if I'm wrong, icebrain) is that it will be available once his website is up and running, which he is actively working on. I do not know when the advanced (i.e., not-free) version will be ava...

Re: bug: All units are red

I suspect your opponents intentionally created custom matches with that setup.

I'm curious how you're calculating feet in-game, since I'm sure the OP meant it metaphorically. I don't doubt that you've done it; I just wonder how.

Re: My note as to why I didn't buy the game.

Hit "whatever the button was on the right" (Prime) again to submit turn two's orders.

Re: Game Unavailable in Steam

I tried launching my desktop shortcut just now to see if my steam-version worked, and got the same error. Then I clicked the "play" button in my steam games library and it launched. So, that might be a workaround? I have no idea, and no time to fiddle with it right now.

Re: Charge game won't end

The game has timed out, and it's recorded as a loss because you are the player who didn't submit a turn for two weeks. That it still shows up as requiring a turn is a bug.

Re: Timed out games showing as requiring turn

Just logged in, and the problem is gone. So either it resolves itself after a bit, or I owe the devs a "thank you".

Timed out games showing as requiring turn

Games 215791 and 253783 both timed out in my favor. Now when I log in they're listed as requiring turns from me. The prime button still shows instead of the results button, and pressing it gives an error message ("multiturn finished"), but pressing it also makes them no longer show as requiring a tu...
