I'll take the humans, if no one else has claimed them yet.  Otherwise, I'll take which ever race.

Also, I have the Matrix box addition.

Shelldrake has joined us too.
I think that's about all the players we need!

Still need to get gmail email address confirmation from a few of you. Please provide it and we're off!

Ubercat is the last one to provide his details and then we have lift-off! 8 players in total.  O0

Ok guys, Ubercat decided to cancel. I'll try to kick off the game in a few hours.

You should have received the first turn by now. If not, please report ASAP.

We have 7 human players and 5 AI on a Large map with a gametime of 250 turns.
The map is a uniform galaxy.

It's basically a Free for All game, so whatever schemes, alliances and trade agreements you feel you need to make with either AI or human controlled factions is fair game.

Report any issues in this thread.

Is anyone going to do an DAR of this? I might if I have enough time.
Have fun gentlemen and good luck! To bodly go....

I got a notification from Google that an app tried to login to my Pbem Email account. Of course this was Armada, but by default Google's security setting blocks the request. It's an easy fix, but you have got to do the following:

Have your Gmail Inbox open in a browser.
Start Armada
Click on Multiplayer in the main menu
Click on Multi-Player Settings
Confirm everything is entered correctly in this dialog.
Press Back
Click on Join/Continue under the Play by Email box.
Click on the 'Checl Mail' button in the top right-center of the dialog box.

Armada will now check for new mail and will likely return a 'Username or Password' details error!
Ignore this message, Google has just blocked access.
ALT-TAB to your browser where your inbox is open.
See the new notification of Google and instructions on how to allow apps to access your inbox.
When done, ALT-TAB back to Armada and press the 'Check Mail' button again.

Everything should work now.

I'm not having a problem with accessing my gmail account, but Armada isn't finding any email.  The one from Yskonyn is the only email in my gmail account.  Is anyone else able to load the game.

Ok, weird. Shelldrake returned his turn. No one else did.
So? Shall I restart and see if it works?

I'm actually downloading and installing the game as I type. Didn't get a chance yesterday. Should I wait for a new turn or use the one already sent?

Still nothing. I double and triple checked my settings.  :-[

Why don't you try just a two or three person game with myself and jarhead, see if we can process those, before scrapping everyone else's work.

I have the email but cannot get the game to read my gmail account. I get 'Password or username not valid' and when I check my gmail itself there is no notice about enabling outside apps or anything similar.

looks like that link is for something called 'G-Suite', which requires a subscription ($5/month after free trial). I can't find anything similar in my gmail account settings, only a list of apps/OSs that have previously accessed gmail but no info on enabling new ones.
