If you send in two .2h files for two (or more) different nations during the same turn, then you run the risk of getting a CD violation during hosting which results in one (or both) nations who used the same key being given a forced stale. Doesn't always happen, but you need to know the exact requirements to prevent it kicking in. (and the consequences of getting them wrong just isn't worth it)

So whenever a nation needs to be turned AI in a llamaserver game, it's best to post a thread or ask on IRC for a volunteer to do the AI turning. In this case though there's no need to look, as I'll do it since I'm passing. (mattburn7. I assume you are the admin, as such I'm sending you a PM with my email once I finish this).

Edit - PM sent. please let me know if you didn't get it (I got a forum time out error my end while sending, so not sure it got through to you as I didn't save the msg)

Edit 2 - Problem has been solved by Yomi's death. Move on.

Just looked at the new turn file- it appears the issue is moot. Yomi is deceased.

Thanks for your offer for help Calahan. Looks like the server still wants a 2h file from Yomi irregardless of his death... I think there's a one turn lag there. Rather then bothering with the whole AI issue I can force hosting once all the other turns are in if no one has a problem with that.

Yeah, the llamaserver needs to be sent a final .2h file once a nation is defeated.(I can still do this if it helps. mattyburn has my email).

Needing to send a final .2h file isn't a bad thing actually, as it allows the defeated player a chance to send out a final message, or to empty out his gem/item vault to other players. As these orders will still be carried out even though the nation is technically dead (as you would probably not want to send out final messages or goodie baskets until you were officially dead)

Well I just did my first ever stale turn. That sucks. I forgot that the time my email tells me doesn't account for daylight savings, so I missed getting home from work and sending in the turn by an hour. Oh well, it happens I guess!

Ugh, sorry to hear that samoht. Anytime you need an extension just notify me and mattyburn and one of us will do so. Hopefully nothing too painful happened as a result.

Its alright. If I thought I needed an extension I would have let you known but this was just simple human error on my part. It won't happen again!

Woo hoo... stopped Caelum's arena champion with a measily level 1 fire mage casting an unscripted blindness spell (a summoned earth elemental gets the assist but would have almost certainly been demolished otherwise). Too bad the mage didn't get to follow his dream of devoting himself to a quiet life crafting lightless lanterns and picking up easy women at the local tavern with tales of his heroism... a eagle king promptly flattened him.

By the way, in case anyone didn't know (and I didn't), the arena champion's gear is pretty epic. It's a helmet which gives sick protection, quickness and attacks at the same time. I'm kind of confused how the seraph got it the champion's gear, I thought it was cursed and I though Caelum sent a tempest lord to the arena.

Hi everyone,

I won't probably be able to play my next turn in time, thus I would like to request an 12h extension.

Regarding the arena gear, there was some battle in which my tempest lord died and the seraph came by and looted the body...
