I finally got around to downloading the program and the AGoT files. Gualdo, thanks for spending what I imagine was a good amount of time to create the game file and the card files. I was poking around with it and I think I've figured out how most all AGoT game activities would be accomplished, except I can't figure out how to play a card from my hand face down onto the table for Shadows (I can play it to the table and then flip it, but then my opponent would briefly see the card I assume). Also, one suggestion, for the Plot Deck can it be set that double clicking it brings up the view all window (I expect this what is the most common thing to do with the Plot deck)? Lastly, the Power and Gold trackers (above the hand area) are independent of the markers placed on cards, correct?

twn2dn was telling me he too was having this problem... the opponent can indeed see the card, and that seems like a pretty big drawback

Well, if it is not possible to play a card from your had to the table face down, the work around *may* be to have the game file define a fifth "Shadows" deck/pile that starts the game empty (like the dead and discard piles) that is defined so only the controlling player can see it. It looks like a player can drag a card from his hand directly to a deck/pile, but I don't know if during this transition stage whether it becomes visiable to the opponent, plus there's a serious problem in that the chat window announces the title of the card being moved and I assume both players see this, so unless that can be disabled, we're back to square one. It'll be a shame if Shadows can't be solved, because otherwise it's a pretty nice interface.

I think I just figured out how to do it, sorta.

For a card in your hand, first left-mouse-hold *then* hold Shift, then drag the card out onto the table. When you get it where you want, let go of the left mouse button first (if you let go of Shift first, it will instantly flip face up). Once on the table face down, you can drag and on the table face down. To flip facing while on the table, hover over the card and hit F8. Here's the problem: it still seems to announce the card's title in the chat window even though I think it is entering play face down. Is it possible that some info in the chat window is not seen by all players but only the player who "should" know? If both players can see this chat announcement with the card's title, then I think we're stuck until the developer fixes that behavior.

Sorry for the delay in reply but my timezone doesn't allow me to reply fast your questions. Regarding Shadows LetsGoRed has already explained that you have to drag card into table pressing sx button of mouse and SHIFT.

F8 is a quick button to flip cards and F5 is a shortcut to stand all your cards. Regarding the plot suggestion I think it is useful so I'll try to make the change (if I'm not able i'll contact the guy who make the patch).

I have already ordered Battle of the bay but usually I have to wait 2 weeks to have it delivered to me. If someone has it and can scan the cards please send them to me gualdo@tiscali.it so I can (with the help of Rogue30) update the system.

ENJOY!

regarding chat problemthat "announce card" entering in play don't worry. In your chat you see the name of the card but in opponent chat the player only sees "Player x play a card ". You can test it (simply open 2 OCTG2 session on your pc and in one create a game, with the other join it and simulate a game).

If you would read previous posts, maybe you could save time happy.gif

BTW: F5/8 don't work for me. It's not a problem, because you can use ctrl or mouse to group of cards, but I'm curious why.

Hey, dont you want to create some kind of forum or chat room, where players that want to play could post their IP addresses so we can play with people around the whole world?

Would be great if someone could create a thread where we can specify our user and our skype contact (IP in most of the cases is variable so it is better to connect eachother via chat and then inform other player about IP).

Remember to not use VIRTUAL Network like Hamachi that goes in conflict with OCTG2 sometimes.

Had someone figured out how to play cards into Shadows in this thread? If I overlooked that, sorry (believe me, I would have preferred the extra sleep).

I'm wondering the same question, unless by "sorta," that statement above means you can put a card into play and then flip it over as if it's in the shadows. (The only problem with this is, obviously, that your opponent knows the card you're about to play with b/c it appears in the log and visual display before you turn it over.)

The "sorta" was because I thought the chat window was giving away the name of the card being played face down, but Gualdo says that's not the case.  So using the Shift keys appears to be the solution.

You are right Red. The contenct of the chat is not the same for both players.

When i play a card normally the chat of both players will show the name of the card cause all cards faced up put in play can be visible by both players.

Cards flipped out can only be known by player who owns them so the chat of the "Owner" will show:

"Player one put 'Silent Sister' into play into Shadow"

The chat of other player will show:

"Player one put one card in play into Shadow"

Ps As already said in previous post you can easily test this opening 2 games on the same computer (one will create the game and another will join it). In this way you can simulate a 2 players match on one computer and check all this kind of behaviour.

 Hey Gualdo,

works fine so far even on a Mac (with Virtualbox). It would be best, if you edited your first post with all the relevant information. gui%C3%B1o.gif

 Just to inform you that Jeremy Stomberg, Operations Associate Fantasy Flight Games contacted me via mail asking me who gave me permission to post the program. I explained that I ask permission and nobody replied me in 2 weeks and I posted cards older then 6 months.

I wait his reply. If they ask to stop this I'm sorry but I'll have to finish. Let's hope they'll understand our scope.

Oh, that's unfair.

I hope the Community will be strong against some "odd" choices about this.

You did something great with this and I don't like to see FFG ignoring it. 

 

Let us know.

There seems to be strong demand for some sort of digital format, and I'm sure all of us continue to buy the monthly packs, so let's hope they don't ask you to remove anything. Sorry to hear you're hard work is put at risk, but I for one appreciate what you've done!
