Let's Play OVERLORD -- Saturday, November 17, on Vassal! Tue, 13 November 2012 14:54
We haven't had an online Overlord in three months, and I've got a free Saturday morning, so Carpe Diem!

We'll play "Offensive on Saint-Lo," from the new Equipment Pack. I saw the end of this being played at WBC over the summer, and it was a great battle.

(If you're interested in learning this multi-player Overlord version of Memoir, sign up here, and I'll come online earlier to teach you. Also, if you haven't played Overlord before, download the rules from the Memoir website's Rules & Goodies page.)

NEW OVERLORD SCENARIO -- Saturday, November 17.

> 06:00 in San Diego
> 09:00 in New York (Note to self: This may be a bad time for the server.)
> 14:00 in London
> 15:00 in France, Germany, Belgium, etc.
> Other countries, you know where you are.

Post a message here if you want to be in it.

We will be using version 10.7 of the Memoir module. Download the new version from the Modules page at http://www.vassalengine.org . Also, Vassal is currently at version 3.1.1.19. Click the Download link on the Vassal page. Please download your files before game time, so we don't delay the start.

I'll be online at least 30 minutes beforehand, to help anybody who has questions or technical problems, or who wants a refresher on units.

I'll take you on again.

PS: Do you have a few minutes to post our previous results of High Stakes at Bruyères at http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/battles/?id=10937?

Sam, can I be in on this one? I should be free on saturday between 14:30 and 17:00 Paris time on Saturday. I hope 2 hours to play is enough.
I have played 13 overlord games already, and feel familiar with the rules. I have played both as General in chief and as Field General.

However, I have never played on vassal. I would like to take advantage of your presence online the half hour in advance.

I can't play that day.

The current version of VASSAL is 3.1.20, not 3.1.1.19.

I think I'll have released module version 10.8 before the weekend. Can get you a save file of the scenario for 10.8 if you like.

No, the 3D version will come later. Waiting until Chris has time to finish the graphics.

Almilcar: Sorry if you can't make it. It's a date that works well for me. There will be more games in the future.

Quit2: Yes, you're welcome to play. Since the games usually last more than 2 hours, we'll make you a Field General.

jfk: I have posted the results of the Bruyeres game. Thanks for the reminder.

bdgza: Great to hear that version 10.8 of the module will be ready, but we'll play this game in 10.7. The last thing we need is 8 players trying to make sure their new modules are all right. Smile

Thanks.

More players?

I'll CiC.

Can we have the teams picked out beforehand?

If we can have a second volunteer CinC, and if the CinCs can agree in advance about who will take which side, that's half the battle. Then, they can open up a private channel and pick teams quickly and efficiently, and we can get started within a few minutes of the announced game time.

It's difficult to choose teams before the announced game time, because the attendees can't always be predicted in advance.

I can do CiC for the other side, and take over for a FG if someone quits after 3 or 4 hours, or has to be removed when one of his girlfriends gets jealous. Laughing

I think you said there was a trick to setting up your position if you have to leave or taking over another's, but I didn't get the instructions.

Clearly, I spent too much time this past weekend playing Memoir, and not enough time organizing. Smile

And don't worry -- we'll do more Pacific scenarios. But first, I wanted to do one that we haven't played yet.

Hey, guys, it appears that the Vassal server went down.

Keep checking it every couple of minutes.

Sorry you couldn't reconnect, sd. You missed a lot of action.

As JFK said, we restarted. I ran the Allies.

Axis won, 12-8, in 9 turns. More details to be posted later.

The AAR has been posted. http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/battles/?id=7406& ;returnto=#list

By the way, thanks, everybody, for playing! (And, to everybody, but especially to the two players who wound up losing the opportunity to play because of the server going down, special apologies for the unexpected technical difficulties.)

Well I am glad you guys got it up and running and played.

I am sorry I could not be there for part of the action.

Too bad there were Vassal problems right off Sad

You know what they say in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

"The difficult we do immediately. The impossible takes a little longer."
