Re: How To Run a Game
 
More and more of my wishlists and to-do lists are going to have to become "if someone else does them" items. I would like to see some more just-for-fun games done.

There are some ideas here in the "Sitting on the Fence" link

Re: How To Run a Game
 
So I have some usefull links from Gandalf Parker.
Is there somewhere an index or somesuch?
As there may well be some more usefull links which I dont know...
And getting from maps to games without the link is kind of hard?

Just noticed I have the link for the player versus AI page.
But apparently didnt saved the parent link, how do I get back?

Yeah its a mess isnt it? I keep meaning to fix it up more but thats not likely to happen.
Another community member here named Nerfix was working on it for awhile.

Many people start at the main page http://www.Dom3Minions.com and then click thru to what they are looking for. So getting back to where they were is in the backbutton of their browser. But I really should add something like a TOP button to most of the pages for people who are using a link from one of the posts here to go straight to one of the pages

Oh ok. Well mutual head slap then. That is something I can, and probably should fix.

OK I have GRUDGINGLY added a template for requesting a game on my server.

If you have visited it lately you might have to refresh your browser to see the link for Example/Template

OK due to failing health I am giving in to outside pressures. Instead of pushing for people to be creative with their games, or to get logins on my server to run their own, or to learn how to host... I have given in and added a Template/Example to the Dom3Minions.com server. Hopefully I can keep it flexible enough and stress that ANY VARIATION CAN BE ASKED FOR.

Also a general check page has been added. Altho most of the private games use some sort of signup server to track the games there are still some who do not so this provides a way to check those games without going into Dom3 to connect.

And NO I am not ready to go as far as putting up a menu yet :)
