    Go ahead and set it up.

    Any settings are fine by me, but quick-start mod preferred.

    Do we use the duel-duel format as mentioned in the rules?

    My email is maqpoly at gmail dotcom. Let me know all the settings, better get some practice in now.

    I think that basing the ladder off games since 2006 is fine. I'll try sending an email to people that I've had good games with in the past and see if we can beef up activity on here. If all of us do that, we should be able to get at least a few people on board. And I'll take Maquiladora on if he dares!

    Thehappies or Keygen, could you attach the quickstart here please?

    5. You may challenge any player up to three slots above your current position. If the person challenged dodges the challenge continually with no good reason, then the one challenged may lose one or more positions on the ladder.
    So does this mean I can only challenge the bottom 3? Or up to the bottom 3 deity players?

    EDIT: Nevermind you changed rule 5

    So who wants a game?

    Ladder overhauled based on completions since 1-Jan-2006. I made minor changes to rules 2, 3, 5, and 6 because of the new way players are added to the ladder, and the way challenges are made.

    Maqiladora -- I think either Thehappies or Keygen has a copy of the quick start.

    Where can I download the quick-start mod? Is it used on the ladder even? I would like to give it a go if it's still used.

After looking around on the net for options, i came across Virtual PC 2007. This is available free for download at microsoft and it lets you run other operating systems inside a window. You will need the original os cd. I installed win98. The program gives the guest os part of your hard drive to use. Once more, the guest os (win98 in my case) had no trouble using my sound card, graphics card, etc... In the past i have had lots of trouble setting up a dual boot os, only to find win98 could not use my hardware. Now ive installed ctp on the guest os (win98) and it runs no probs.

    OP? Oh... duh
    That's great to hear Gramps! I remember that you were in so much pain, I really felt bad for you. The surgeries worked!

    Grandpa -- I don't think too many people use Vista here... at least I don't. How is your health? And what is "OP" for us "good folks"??
    My surgeries, all 4 have gotten me almost pain fre, thanks to God! I ended up with a metal plate, a bone graft and 11 screws in my left wrist, nothing left, everything was removed surgically due to being torn out in accident. Now the attorneys can settle on what I get, a mere pennance i assuree you.

    the OP refers to Opening Post

    Frog -- I take it from Rickety that you are sandbaggin' I believe that is true seeing as how I'm currently playing you and you are very good.

    Keygen -- Sorry, I forgot to mention your help with the ladder. Thanks! I'll take it from here if no one objects.

    Maquila -- Hope you join our humble group!

    Thehappies explains the system very well. Please heed his notes if you have questions about how the CTP PBEM Ladder works.

    So how about my suggestion of starting from 1-Jan-2006 to determine new rankings? Yes, no, maybe so?
    If I could figure out how to get CTPand Vista to match up, I would be a whooping boy for someone and since you folks know me, aint no sandbags here in old Trolldom

    Best of fortunes one and all

    2. I have never played a solo game against an AI. Do I have to wait until its completed to join the Ladder?
    Don't listen to him, he's deity level.

    I think there are recommended starting conditions, but nobody is held to it because it's fun to mix things up. You can use a quick start mod or not--whatever you choose as long as you both agree. In the current match I have with Cuaich we each control two civs and there are no AI. In our last match we each controlled one civ and there were two AI civs. Variety is the spice of life! In my opinion, you can challenge whoever you want, but those more than a couple spots above you can refuse a challenge. You are somewhat obligated to accept challenges from those near your ranking on the ladder. Are Maquiladora, Grandpa Troll and Keygen signing on to the ladder? That would boost our numbers a bit. Horned Frog--you gotta work on dancemasseuse to get him on here too. He'll tear this place up. How's that game between him and Birdman going?
