Neat site, glad to see Cartagena online. I've been wondering how that game would be.

I have Blue Max.

I have to say that Wings of War is slightly easier to play and learn.

I've been playing Blue Max there too, but I'm not always sure what I'm doing. How do you interpret the code beneath each move choice?

I've also really been enjoying Cartagena and I'm just about to get my first win. I am a real pirate.

Move codes
The move codes are actually 3 bits of info. Only 2 are really important. The first group of numbers is only a manuever code and doesn't really mean anything. The letter represents which way you are moving L-left, R-right, S-straight. This is important when tailing or being tailed as this is what you will see when the pilot you are tailing makes a move. Or This is the bit of info you will be telling to the pilot that is tailing you. The third is the most importatnt as it represents your fuel usage for a given turn. You are only alloted a certain amount of fuel each dogfight. It also tells you which moves are allowed in the next turn. You are only allowed to increase or decrease your speed by 1 a turn. So you can't make a 1 move followed by a 3. Also the brackets represent stalling.

What screen names do you use at the site? I'm blan86 on that site as well so you may have already shot me down.

Bob

On 'You Play It' I'm, Robrob (surprise), I usually have a dozen games of Blue Max and Carteghena going at the same time. I can't wait for the Wooden Ships & Iron Men implementation.
