Sharing ZT Game Boxes 4 Replies

Despite the uncertain status of ZunTzu, I still find it to be a very desirable platform for creating electronic versions of games for local and solitaire play. While the ZT website has reappeared in…Continue

Connection problems with ZunTzu

I can't use ZunTzu for online gaming. If I try to be a HOST, it seems there is something wrong, and no one can connect with me. Also if I try to connect with other people, it's rejected as timeout…Continue

Creating Game Box 12 Replies

I'm having trouble getting a game-box I've created to work.  I've created a couple in the past and have been using a working game-box as a model.  Still no joy.  Maybe I'm having trouble using WinRar…Continue

That is really cool Terry!

It turns out that it is perfectly feasible to play a ZunTzu game over the Internet using Zoom. The meeting host should configure his Share Screen settings to "Enable remote control of all applications". Once the meeting has started, he shares his screen so that all participants will be able to see the game components. (I have not been able to get it to share only the ZunTzu application window, even though that should be possible, but I can share just the portion of the screen comprising that window.) The host can then give control of the application to the player whose turn it is. That player will be able to manipulate the map and units just as if they were on his own PC. So far it is working remarkably well. The only catch is that the host needs to be careful not to move his own mouse around while someone else is using remote control.

I wonder if both use Discord, you could screen share the application so you could see moves?

Comment by Edgar Gallego on November 18, 2020 at 7:52am

And how do you see the moves the opponent has done? Vassal has mechanisms to do that (you save log files that can be replayed), ZunTzu doesn't.

Comment by Otto Harkaman on November 18, 2020 at 7:32am

I don't think you would need to change the application. If both players have the same gamebox and pass a saved game file back and forth wouldn't that work?

I noticed people were using vassal this way on discord

Comment by Edgar Gallego on November 18, 2020 at 6:35am

The connection problem comes because most of our internet access is behind a CG NAT, and the ZunTzu server that solved the problem is down.

Having a PBEM option would be great, but that would mean changing the application.

And the one that could change the app is the same one that could restart the server and solve the connection problem...

Well since we can't directly connect with confidence, maybe players could pass a saved game file? One player makes their move and sends the other players a saved game file, then the next player loads that file and then saves another saved game file that he sends to the other player?

Setting up supply for counters, I crashed the program setting it at 999, what is the highest that has been set that won't crash the program?

Comment by Otto Harkaman on July 27, 2020 at 9:28pm

I have two charts for a game I am working on, it would be nice to combine the two because I only need one at a time. I was rereading about Terrains and looking at the syntax, I thought I wonder if I could flip the terrain like a counter. Yes! I was able to combine the two charts and use them like a terrain but flip them when I want one chart or the other.
