Das 1975er Problem scheint zu sein, daß die AI-Spieler mit den Trelyons nicht genug Ertrag erwirtschaften um wieder vollzutanken. Und 1 Mio Abschleppkosten bringen einen zu diesem Zeitpunkt einfach um.
1980 scheint es zu funktionieren. nach über einem Jahr ist noch keiner Pleite, obwohl mehrere im ersten Sommer hart daran vorbeigeschrammt sind.

p.S. Savegame gibts keines, Autosaves hab ich leider überschrieben.

The problem of 1975 seems to be, that the AI players cannot make enough money with their Trelyons to completely fill the tank. And 1 Mio towingcost kills You at that time.
1980 it seems to work, after more than a year nobody went bankrupt, although in the first summer, some where close.

p.s. There is no savegame, as I overwrote the autosaves

Auch bei 1990 wird es mit 8 spielern sehr eng, einer hat gestern ueberlebt von

also 1990 is very tough using 8 players, only one survived yesterday,

we will work on the AI further, especially on the look ahead freight. The AI player chooses the best freight (but only estimating the length of a route at the moment), and also the freight of the destination port. for the dest freight the time is not considered, which I will change, this might improve the performance.

In my case, I played with only one Computerplayer, started in 1975, Beginners-level,but with all the add-on ship from StickyMonk and so...
THe AI bought the Sergiy Radonezhski (2210 dwt) and the Dede C (3315).
This costed him 3.000.000 for only 5525 dwt...Not very effective.
Then a message apperead that the AI was 31 days (!) too late to deliver Bananas, and 18 days too late to deliver Metalware...
Furthermore, As the AI can not enter he harbors manualy, It cannot gain bonuspoints. After 14 month of time gone, the AI has 40.000 cash and 3 statuspoints.
No match for me.

Quote:
Oh, forgot to say, all ships take only 4-17 days to be delivered no matter what it says in KARA, for instance the Jahre Viking only took 17 days to arrive after the order was placed

This happens with me too (Dutch version)

Greetings,

Hello again

Tried the online download and I only receive following message:

MSINET.OCX: NoOnlineUpdate possible

and then the only options are to abort or change settings.

Any way to solve this or do I have to wait for the link?

Keep up the good work
The very best
Christer, Sweden

I have loaded all the updates but I can't find the computer opponent. How do I start this type of game?

Jacob.

when you start a new game, you choose for example 2 plaers, then when give name and company there is a checkbox for the computer opponent (before the town is selected)

Thx Rolf for the answer, it worked on my PC but not on my laptop. I have a update problem. The latest version 099.61 is not available. It stopped with version 099.57 built 3.12.2006. What am I doing wrong or is it not permitted to play this game on two PC's? It isn't a firewall setting because I gave everything free during the update session.

try the command line "pocxxl recover" then 0.99.61 should be displayed and be updateable, therefore go to the DOS command line, change to the directory where pocxxl.exe is installed and then enter the the command.


you can play pocxxl on a network currently with one license, btu for pocsim3dII you need two different license codes for the game to work.
