    What are your MaxPlayers and NumPlayers settings in userprofile? I am currently playing on a SAP/GoodMod/UL map with 15 players and I am (almost) certain that having MaxPlayers=0 (default setting) caused a consistent crash during an AI’s turn at about 300 AD. When I set MaxPlayers=15 it didn’t crash. I have not encountered any crashes since then.

    Well, I for one would like to test out another mod, such as Cradle, MedMod, or WAW. Goodmod and SAP are excellant mods, but I haven't been able to play much with these others either.

    ...and by the way, what's all of this talk about getting 50,000 points yikes!!!

    Well I am feeling that the current unreleased version is much more stable then v0.993, maybe I played right from the beginning with NumPlayers=9. So far only two crashes. They where repetive but I just had to reloadslic and I was able to play on. I only got two DebugSlic=Yes errors. So it is near that it is no problem to use DebugSlic=Yes . And another observation the optimized scripts allows to run the game much faster. I am now in the 19th century just after 6 hour of playing maybe in another 6 hours of playing it is done.

(still can't decide what mod to use - have had several requested for GoodMod again but another mod would be better to give more modmakers a chance for feedback - then again, due to the Tournament less people might participate and that could hurt the feedback again )
    (Moved from "Multiplayer Tournament")

    Tough call. During this tournament I was able to finish another game I was in the middle of, at the same time, without much problem. If the MP tournament is only during the weekends, then there's the possibility people could do both, depending on their schedules. That said, you're probably right, to maximize the number of people playing a new mod, it is probably best to go back to SAP or GoodMod (although I've been having problems with this mod crashing back to the desk top) until the multi-player is over.

    Replaying the tourny game

    OK I already modified some files, and with them I can compare the games. I think the most improtant thing are the accelerate slic files I am already in the 1470 and I just have started today. I also modified some other files, therefore this game can't be part of the official ranking.

    OK here is another interesting observation I took the to the Barbarian fallen Arabian city Tunis. The city is located on a island in the North of their main land. On that island there was another Arabian city Fes. Suddenly the Indonesian landed just near Tunis with a few units. Next turn they attacked with a huge stack of three Greek Fires and a lot of transproters the with three cannons garrisoned city Tunis. they lost the battle. Afterwards they sneaked with the remaining land invasion force to the city Fes and took. Yeah the poor Arabians where already very damaged by their warmonger neighbors. Now the final thing afterwards the dishonorable Indonesian begged for a ceasefire. I accepted, because my invasion fleed isn't ready.

    Well hes got one more feat, 3 more wonders and 2 more advances there... and a faster end date. i dont know the scoring system back to front, i never held much to a high score, so i wouldnt know if those things would account for the extra points.

    Have a look later perhaps, i often dont have time for a high points chase, maybe next time though.

    Repistes' game intrigues me: much less cities and pop than Martin, yet a significantly higher score. I can't quite pin down what gives him the edge...

    Anyway, congrats to both players on their (preliminary) top 3 endscore

    Even though 2 or 3 months would allow more people to play the tourny I think it's a bad idea. The tournaments are also responsible for bringing some life into these pages, but in 2 or 3 months the thread will probably die. Furthermore we'd have to wait for the ranking a rather long time.
    If anybody needs more time he can always submit his game later for the unofficial ranking, can't he?
    Agreed. Once a month is a good time table. Plenty of time to finish the game, but if you can't play that particular tourney game for whatever reason, you don't have to wait forever for the next one to start.

    Oh, so you're believing into CtP3 now too!

    Still playing the second tournament? - might make me reconsider my decision not try.

    Exactly, mapfi. Not everyone participates in the MP tournament, what are the others going to do in the meantime? If I can help it, the SP Tournament feature will always be here, for many months (perhaps years - but you never know what the future will bring) to come. If a few people have to miss 1 or 2 editions, surely that can't be all *that* catastrophal... Especially not since they can always submit their savegames later, unofficially (I'm still playing the 2nd Tournament myself, which I missed due to PC problems).

    Dread_Doomfist & Repistes,
    Cool, thanks for playing I will process the savegames later today...
