OK, I'll sign up.

Suggested format:

Your name (or nickname): Feltan....if you hadn't figured that out, I am not sure I want to PBEM with you. :niark:

with email (optional, you can discuss in the forum): I can PM that once a victim, I mean opponent, comes forward. I'd rather not publish it to the world.

Scenario/Campaign Name: 1775 campaign....really the only one that holds intense interest for me.

Preferred side: That depends. I would like to play as the Americans, but read on.

Turn frequency: About once per day, 5-6 times per week. I am not looking for a race, but something to enjoy over a longer period.

Additional informations:

Where you live (its simpler to play if you are in the same time zone): I am in the US, in the central time zone. However, I will deviate from Pocus' suggestion, I'd rather like playing against someone from Europe. Preferably British. Preferably someone very pompous, who still refers to the USA as "the Colonies." Preferably someone who will spill their tea and cough and spittle their kippers on the computer monitor when they get thrown out of Boston.....you get the idea. (Someone from France would work too...but be forewarned, I speak absolutely no French.)

if you want to reverse side after the first game: I suppose, but I make a lousy pompous Englishman. The last time I was in England, I was refered to as a "cheeky Yank bastard" in a Pub after winning a game of 501 with a Brit who thought darts were the sole domain of Her Majesty's Subjects. :innocent:

any other informations you want: Please post on this thread first. Then we can use the Private Message (PM) feature on these forums to exchange particulars. I'd prefer an opponent that is, ahem, mature -- i.e., I am 45, and not really interested in beating up (or getting beat up by) a 12 year old.

Regards,
Feltan

bill, and other Frenchies.....

I should clarify one thing, I have a long standing score to settle with someone French.

Some 20+ years ago I was a young Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. I got sent to Europe for two weeks to be a referee on some NATO exercise. As luck would have it, I was sent to Belgium and got teamed up with some junior officers from Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France.

It turned out to be a total farce. There was nothing for us to do (our part of the exercise to referee got cancelled). So, being young single officers, we slept most of the day and went out drinking and chasing women at night. You know....you have to do your part for your country. :p

One evening we were in France. I want to say Metz.....but frankly I don't recall. After a nice dinner we ended up in a Euro Disco (remember....this was 20-some years ago). Anyway, there was a very attractive young lady I spotted. So, I ask the two French officers how to say "would you like to dance" in French. They were happy to help me. They made me practice a couple of times so I could be understood through, what must have been, a terrible American accent.

With my new found command of the French language, and brimming with confidence (and hormones), I approached this very hot young lady and in slow, clear words asked (if I recall correctly): "Voulez-vous couche avec moi ce soir?"

Now if you are a young lad, this is why you need to learn foreign languages. So you can dance with pretty girls? No! So you don't get slapped in the face, and turn to see all your "friends" laughing so hard they are falling out of their chairs. :bonk:

It turns out, I didn't need to speak French at all. Her English skills were pretty good, and what she said won't be repeated here.

Anyway...sorry for the long story. I have a score to settle. If you are French, be warned.

Regards,
Feltan

Wow. I have to say I am a little disappointed here. Over 140 views and only three volunteers? :p leure:

Guernica and Bill; let's give this a few more days. If I am reading the posts correctly, Guernica is East Coast USA (?), Bill is in Quebec, and I am in Kansas.

I guess my call for an oppenent from Jolly old England went unanswered. You would have figured that 240 or so years after Yorktown, the Brits would have recovered their confidence enough to have another go at it. :p

Great stuff. I had similar, but not quite a 'blushing encounter' when I drove for day's from Germany (this was 30 some years ago btw) to see and hear the greatness of French hospitality and their beautiful language. Only to be a rewarded by more German...evidently they could tell we were Yanks in civies and from Deutschland and was trying to give us a 'break'! :>)

Good luck on a PBEM game. I wish I had the time!

Important Information:

Its better to ZIP the turn files when you pass them around, so to be sure of the integrity of the savegame.

Its on our wishlist, but not a priority to auto-zip the turn file for you, perhaps for the next game ;)

je suis partant! Je suis un joueur débutant. N'hésitez pas à me contacter si vous souhaitez faire une partie par e-mail. J'aimerais bien me lancer dans une campagne, je n'ai pas de camp préféré et il serait possible de faire un tour par jour.

A bientôt.

PbEM is played in singleplayer mode, with both players exchanging save games.

Actually, it's a little bit more complicated than that, You should check out p. 21 of Your manual... :)

1775 Campaign

preferably the British for the time being

1-2 turns per day would be fine

Additional informations:

I live in Germany (GMT+1)

I'd be happy to play the Americans as soon as patch 1.07 has been released :siffle:

Since I'm a wee bit lazy, I'd rather not be referee... :innocent:

My English is not too bad, but my French is virtually non-existant, so all communication should be in English oder German, please.

New to the forum and considering purchase but I really like playing email games. I cannot tell how active this community is as far as email games so I would like to get a feel for the availability of opponents. Please chime in guys (or girls) and let me know your experience. Thanks.

It should be noted that PBEM is very minimally supported by BoA. There are no passwords, no file encryption. And a very limited "replay". Not only is it easy to cheat, it is hard not to accidentally cheat. Some of these problems are solved if you can find a third non-player willing to "host" your game. But the replay is still just a listing of messages, not an actual viewing of the turn.

Having said that, yes, I am playing a game by e-mail and enjoying it! And I maintain some hope that AGEOD will further develop the PBEM option.

Not tried a PBEM yet, not too worried about cheating as I'm pretty sure 95%+ of people I have played against in other games where cheating is possible - like the Campaign Series for example don't cheat (if they do they must be really awful at cheating :)

I am worried about the fact you only see messages for the opponents turn. Can cope with this and look forward to an email game - but it's dissapointing that you cannot see the opponent turn?

Hopefully a future improvement as PBEM is really the only way to play these sort of games.

More scenarios as well - or some sort of editor, that's what has kept the CS series alive for so many years.
Fingers crossed.

P.S. I'm not looking at the Montcalm 1756 scenario as I think this is a pretty good size scenario to play blind as either side in a first PBEM in 2 or 3 weeks time. Be nice to play a campaign against somebody after this.

Anyone fancy this as a blind PBEM in a few weeks time? (still need to play one of the other scenarios against the AI first to have more idea of the game system)
