Default DEMO GAMES for Dom3

Due to the new influx of people checking out this wonderful game,
I am going to reopen the DEMO games on my server.
http://game.dom3minions.com/bin/demo_chk.cgi

This is along with the many other types I already provide.
http://www.dom3minions.com/HostedGames.htm

And various larger games which people wish to set up if you have an idea for one that has some extensive setup requirements.

Might want to update your message on that page; it currently reads:

Dom3 demo games
There are now ( 6 ) demo games with 2 to 4 players on 50 province maps. If you wish a demo game started then let me know. I dropped it due to lack of interest.

Ouch. And as often as it irks me I should not have forgotten it for others.
Credit to Lch for recommending that there be Demo Games for MP (which reminded me that I used to have those and only need to turn it back on)

Thanks I will.
I also have to reread my own old code on pages such as
http://game.dom3minions.com/bin/waiting_chk.cgi
http://game.dom3minions.com/bin/admin_chk.cgi
to figure out how I did it and add demo's into it

Thanks Gandalf. I think it's a great idea to have demo MP games.

These games are still available.
However, due to the actual usage, and the large increase in non-public Dom3 games on the server, Im going to have to cut back on the number of these that are available.
But they are still available if people want to try the Dominions 3 Demo available at
http://www.shrapnelgames.com/Illwint...DOM3_page.html

Semi-Shameless Bump.
I was asked if the Demo games are still available. (I had forgotten to update one of my pages which still said they were dropped)

YES the DEMO-only Dominions 3 games are back.
I open a new one every time one is started. Feel free to test the multiplayer features of this wonderful game. Either by taking more than one nation yourself, or even better by getting 3 friends to download the demo to try it with you.

As you can see from this forum, Dominions 3 is a game well worth getting. It still provides pleasure and challenges to people who have owned it for years.

ALL DEMO GAMES ON DOM3MINIONS ARE NOW UPGRADED TO THE NEW VERSION

There is a new version of the DEMO available at www.Illwinter.com which gives correct impressions about what system requirements are, and how the game plays. If you are planning to show your buddies by playing a multiplayer demo game on Dom3Minions, please have everyone update to the new demo first.
