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

I have to say... I recommend the other games... but can't recommend backgammon due to the complaints about the dice perception issue... IMHO... single player game wasn't ready to roll out...

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

"If all things are random"... why is it you get the purported "feeling" the computer game (single player) is cheating and you don't get that feeling with physical board game.... "If all things are random" why is it you get the purported "feeling" the computer is cheating with the ultra number of dou...

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

I don't believe it's a matter of removing "some of the randomness" it's a matter of making the game "FEEL" random. Of which as the boards and your link to another board points out. This may need to be dealt with from a psychological point of view.... Problems are like "games" or puzzles, something t...

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

Jonas, I hope just because the link shows other games and people are having the same issue makes it ok... what this show's is (if nothing else) there is a perception problem with the game/computer-dice. Is the mind set : everyone else is having the problem so that's just the way it is? Be the first ...

Re: Computer Player doubles way too easily

If nothing else there is a perception problem with computer dice that's not there with real dice. I've seen loaded/trick dice and you get the same feeling with the trick/loaded dice that you get with the computer dice of your game. I played several games for several days and in approx. 90% of the ga...

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

I don't profess to know to much about AI/neural network programming (even though I'm low level SQL/.NET programmer)... however if you have a problem with perception of the game you have a problem with the game that needs dealing with. Even though peoples complaints have "now" fallen on deaf ears the...

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

The Backgammon game does not have a good feel to it (single player).... regarding the dice, how often and when the bot doubles. Something else I noticed.... I can have all my pieces on the board ready to come off and the bot can have half it's pieces off... I can offer a double and the computer will...

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

I just played a game where the bot rolled doubles 5 sets of doubles in the last 7 roles of the game. Have you guys done testing on stand alone PC's. Maybe you can collect data from personal PC's. I'll allow you to collect game data. I noticed yesterday the faster I clicked (if I was on the bar) afte...

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

The RNG is out of wack. Why don't you guys collect information (Stats) to see if there is a difference between PCs. I just started a game where bot got 4 - 5 doubles back to back. It seems the faster one click when the bot finshes the more doubles are thrown. There may be a correlation. What kind of...

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

I use Zone Alarm for my desktop firewall. Whenever I start any of my games... I have to give the OK for any of them to contact the Internet (why is that). If I didn't have ZA I'd not know the games are attempting to reach the Internet. I hope you guys are monitoring the dice rolls with the informati...
