A little question: if the turn is 8 mins, how long does the GPU take to calculate the turn?

I'm guessing that your actual turn is 8 mins and you rest while the GPU is doing its job?

As far i can remember from my last tournament (a year ago or so, didn't play this two) the time is taken from the following turn.

So if a turn goes from 11:00 to 11:10 you can login at about 11:01 and play till 11:10, then you must wait 1-2 minutes and play the 11:10 to 11:20 turn from 11:12 to 11:20 and so on. So you do not have the full time of, in this example, 10 minutes, but 8 or 9, depending on how much the GPU must do.

Every 8 minutes turn, you have to log in again, and there is about a 30 second delay while it process and such........(how come the normal game takes 20 min to do this?

My assumption is that the normal game is a whole lot bigger in area, and not everyone signs in for the tourny.

Hi,

at the last tournament on last friday in .de, the gpu took about half a minute to proceed i thin. We had about 30 participants. The universe is naturally smaller than for 400 players or more. But it was a lot of fun.

Yes, it depends on how many players are playing and how many systems, ships etc. they have. If the players only have a HP, it must only calculate the growth and tax and then the money, no ship movement, no new map for changed sight, no combat etc.

Makes it a lot faster in the tournament.

Cause Kosmor is orginally German, Maelstroem is German, most of the older players are German...

I am sure an English version would not be too hard to run. Kosmor.com has been running for years.

Hey hey, keep cool. These are all still test tournaments to find the last problems with the updated game engine. I'm sure there will be a tournament here too when the tests are done.

ah Atreides you mean kosmor.de is running years Wink
Merthos is right, think when the tournament engine is ready and all well tested then would be a english version the next work.
