Hi all,

After not playing for eight years because I couldn't find anyone to play with I have made an online version of Star Wars miniatures and I'm now looking for ALPHA testers :)
Website is www.swmplay.com

At the moment you can only choose from 3 teams and fight the AI (Jabba and his bounty hunters).

If enough interest is shown I will complete it and add multiplayer. Which I would really like to do so I can play!

James

You should post this to bloomilk.com, too. I'm curious as to what you saw as the main drawbacks of Vassal.

I downloaded it, and am trying it. What do you do at the end of the round? I've activated all my guys, but I can't figure out what to do next?

Main thing I found with Vassal is that I had nobody to play because of my time zone (Australian Central standard); so I tried to play myself (via another computer) in order to learn how it works and found it a very hard learning curve.
Don't know which version I had but I think that rules could be broken by accident and there was no back button (so if you accidentally activated a third figure during the turn there was no way of taking that move back).
Also there was no structured leagues or tournaments (didn't know about swmgamers.com at that time).

Your supposed to go to the initiative roll for the next round! I'll fire up my program and see if I can tell what went wrong.
PS I'm sending you a PM to see what difficulty you had it on, I assume 'easy' but I'll ask anyway :)

As for bloomilk.com I won't put it up just yet as I am trying to get around 4-6 testers to help me get it up and running and then get more for when I have multiplayer up and running.

Okay, version 0.0.1.10 is now released.

I will be working on version 0.0.2.0 which will include a tutorial and a touch up of the AI, but please keep those bug reports coming!

AI is currently a 1/10 but I will pump it up to a 2 over the next week :)

If you finish a game please email me a screenshot of your final score with your name and I will start a top scores ladder on my website.

James
