Some Mem44 Online interface questions Thu, 02 January 2014 03:55
Mem44 OnLine Interface Questions

1. On the right panel, with "Name", "?", [blank], [CrossedDaggers], [Star]:

a. Many use the US Army rank system (I understand this one), how do you change to use the others?

b. Under the "?" column, what do the various icons mean? I've seen some people with [blank], 1 person, 2 people, and some with [Star]. What do those mean, and are there any others?

c. Under [Star], what distinguishes (or adds to?) 3xBlack, 4xBlue, 5xGreen? What do they mean? Are there others?


2. I've been awarded 4 achievements. Is there a list of them somewhere, and how to obtain them?

1. b
Person means playing solitaire
2 people - playing a game with someone else
Star (asterisk) playing an Expert scenario

1. c
Level of integrity (honor)
Everyone starts with 3xBLACK - if a person quits games rather than completing them than they lose honor to 2xYELLOW. If they persist in bad behavior they go to 1xRED.

If they play fairly they eventually move up to 4xBLUE and then 5XGREEN

2. Achievements can be found under your homepage for Memoir 44 Online:
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/

Just make sure you look under achievements. To find your own, you need to make sure you are logged in at the top right with your user name and password.

Awesome. Thx for answers, only one more -

Achievements - Is there a list of which ones are available, and how they are achieved?

1.a
Changing Rank System (US, Germany, France, Japan, Italy, etc.)
This is changed while you are using the Online game.
Go to my records. On the page that shows your achievements you will see some flags of the different nations under your player icon. Select a different flag and it will change rank to be from that nation.

Check out this guide:

One more question - On the scenario list, I occasionally see some scenarios in green, why are they green?

One more question - On the scenario list, I occasionally see some scenarios in green, why are they green?



A green highlighted scenario indicates one of two things:

1. Someone has entered a scenario to play and has no opponent. That person is waiting for anyone who would like to join that scenario with the hopes of playing.

2. DOW has technical issues with a scenario that has become stuck open on the server, even though there is no one actively seeking a game. In this case a technical error causes the game to indicate (green) even when no one is there. The only current remedy for DOW to clear this false open scenario is to shut down the server to reboot the program. They are reluctant to do this as it interrupts service for everyone when it is only a "cosmetic" issue. So until they have a real need to update software or otherwise make a change the "cosmetic" issue will probably remain. RZHEV is one of those scenarios currently stuck.

If you want to play a GREEN scenario just go ahead, but be warned that no one may join currently because they think no one is there. Just use the chat bar or INVITE button to make contact and you should be okay.
