Off-line Play

Trying to play the game when I loose my Internet connection. However every few seconds... the game stops and I get a box with the words working & cancel... What's going on with that...?

Thanks

Not allowed To Pick A card for Discard

Ok, this is the situation:

Single player
The pick is on me.... I picked "clubs"
In my hand: Joker, Jack of clubs, Jack of spades, King of clubs, queen of clubs, 9 of clubs
I chose to "go it alone"
When I have to choose what to discard....9 of clubs is not an option... Why?

Thanks

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

Anybody ever roll the same number 3 times in a row? What's the odds?

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

Jonas, Don't get me wrong sir.... I play at least one of your games every day (well almost). The graphics of your games are top notch (in my opinion). I'd just like to see this (backgammon) rise above (be one of the first) this perception issue. People that speak so strongly regarding this matter ar...

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

From all the post I've read regarding this issue... all complaints revolve around the dice. The consistently lucky rolls the bot gets. One has to have the dice rolls to make certain moves.

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

The logic that controls the die rolls has no information of what the computer needs. Nor does the AI have any knowledge of the Rolls prior to it's own roll. We would have had to put in that logic for it to be able to a) roll what it needs, or b) take advantage of rolls before their rolled, and neit...

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

ROI hinges on the evidence supporting the theory that if you build it, they will come. Are there similar sites as Hardwood that implemented TNRG over PNRG and found more people purchasing licenses or subscriptions as a result of it being a more enjoyable experience? Do you have figures showing the ...

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

I'm really surprised (baffled is more like it) at the direction this thread is taking. I can trout out my degrees, minors, my 6 IT certifications (going for another one). I can run out all the stats on random numbers I've found on the internet. I can talk about those stats classes that kicked my but...

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

Hrmm, ya Not sure why the Bot would resign. S ee the AI is a Neural Net, so it trained it self how to play, so nobody really knows how it thinks :) If this is indeed true (your words)... There's that PRNG which produces a list of number in advance... From what I've read about PRNG and legal gamblin...

Re: Are the rolls stacked in the computers favor, absolutly not.

I just had a chat with our chief coder, and basically the last change we made was that what effectively happens now is that there is a stream of random numbers, and when you click to roll the dice, you snag the next one in the stream. This sounds like like (from Random.org): Pseudo-Random Number Ge...
