Hey Antony,antonius said:Hi Rich,
Well a post in the ACWGC forum mentioned an interesting balanced scenario (by you incidentally) that was in the downloads section here, so as I had to register to download it, I thought I may as well have a look around the forum and say hello. That is one way of getting more people in
Thanks Brent...hope your Blog takes off tooo!bschulte said:Rich,
Hopefully my ACW Gaming blog will get you guys some more exposure as well. Anybody going there will have a link here from the main page.
I think that one of the best ways to find new players are good After Action Reports, especially with pictures. They can show what exactly is going on it this games. I for example, decided to buy HPS games, mostly because of 'Game Spotlight' on Rich Hamilton's old website. They contained general information about game and pictures. But good AAR's can be even better than this.rahamy said:We want to find ways to get new people into the hobby. Guys who have just been playing the AI, or people that haven't even discovered the games yet.
Exactly. At least I'm doing what is in my power... Old Battleground games were published here in Poland and really many people liked and played them. I guess that at least better part of Old Guard didn't heard about HPS games. We are running here an ACW gazzette and in March owner allowed me to wrote few words about ACW computer games. Take a look guys, and if you don't understand something :laugh: JUST ASK!!rahamy said:I've been putting out feelers onto various boards and such, but so far not too many bites. If people can talk about the games in any of their civil war settings then that may help. I.E. reenactors, history enthusiast, etc. Heck, it might even help if a few guys went up into the general ACW forums here and talked about the games...I just made a post there the other day!
Too bad that 'generals' didn't wanted to come here... But who know, maybe once... Anyway salute to Mark Nelms and Rich Hamilton as they are playing here with us, non-acwgc members :toast:rahamy said:We've already appraoched the ACWGC with the proposal of a merger and it was rejected, so that's not an option...
Need to expand the section to beyond just hps games. I realize, given your position as a game designer with hps, this may not be too popular.rahamy said:Guys,
How can we go about getting more people into the section and playing games, discussing things, etc?
Ideas and comments are welcome!
WARS does support real-time games. However, in the past, our philoshopy is that a forum is geared towards a specific game and not a certain time period. For example, we have the TOAW forum that supports the game. The game itself has scenarios from ancient times to modern hypothetical battles to a War of the Rings scenario. The idea is to help players who play the same game have a place to discuss the game. That doesn't exclude changing that paradigm in the future.rahamy said:.. a real-time games like the Sid Meyer's Gettysburg/Antietam games...
