As requested, here is a quick guide to starting a pbem.1.
First, open up triplea, and click Start PBEM Game:2.
Then, enter your email and your opponents email, it doesnt matter the order for To/Cc. If it's a ladder match, enter the challenge ID. 3.
Choose your dice server. The offical ladder server is: dice.tripleawarclub.org. In order to use this server you need to visit http://dice.tripleawarclub.org
and register your dice email.3. a)
and enter your email:3. b)
You will get an email in your inbox, open it and click the link.
You're registered on MARTI!4.
Choose Game, set Game Options, press Play.
That's it! If you're the first country, you do your turn. Buy, move, combat, noncombat, placement. When you attack you select your opponents casualties as if they were your own (ie Respectfully). IMPORTANT:
In places where there are multinational defense forces, bombers, or naval combats, you need to request an Order of Losses (OOL) by email (with the save file attached) _AFTER_ you finish Combat Move, and _BEFORE_ you roll any dice (according to the ladder rules.)
Then once your turn is done, save the file, attach it in an email and send it to your opponent.5.
If you're receiving a PBEM file by email, save it to your computer. Then open up TripleA then press "Load Saved Game" and select the game file you saved to your computer. Now you can either go into "Start Local Game" to practice your move, or you can "Start PBEM Game" to do your official move. Remember, the first MARTI rolls are the official rolls, so be sure to practice if you need to!Additional Resources:
