Imperium without the river rule.
I would like we playtested this plain option for that variant: the Imperium map without any river rule.

Better call in players who have played the river rule, to feel the difference. If the players approve the change, we could dare proposing it for permanent change in vdip.

Here is the code that Oli put in to fix this before, (this is in the drawmap file), could I please be given edit rights for Napoleonic?:

public function __construct($smallmap)
{
// Map is too big, so up the memory-limit
parent::__construct($smallmap);
if ( !$this->smallmap )
ini_set('memory_limit',"32M");
}

The problem was in color depth. But 2 provinces don't colored properly anyway.
Besides I have painted the missed black pixels of borders of several countries

How you fixed Novgorod to be colored properly?
Firehawk (968 D)
22 Feb 17 UTC
Novgorod was a newly created territory, so it didn't have a unit placed yet. I just placed it.

22 Feb 17 UTC
Hi Flame. I've screwed up and deleted the map.png by accident. So now we are back with the same problem we originally had... Is there any way you could restore the fixed version? I was trying to change the mapnames file only... My bad!

Well it was, I just added in the old file to replace it. So the color depth issue will have returned

Hey Flame, there's a slight error in my large map (Kiev is shown to border Bulgaria when it should be cut off by Odessa like in the small map) could you either send me the working large map file so I can make the correction or make the edit yourself? Cheers!

Napoleonic variant is similar to Chaos-classic variant. You should totaly rely on the ally.
And in this very moment you also can be betrayed with no possibility to make a come back.

Firehawk (968 D)
21 Jun 17 UTC
I changed the supply limit, I can't do anything with the interactive map right now. I suggest just releasing without?
Flame (938 D)
21 Jun 17 UTC
I don't mind...
I personallly don't use interactive maps, and most variants don't come with them anyway, so I think if you remove that I agree, release it :-)
Flame (938 D)

I agree. I don't use IM too.

We can dedicate the release to the date of Vagram battle.

Site Glitch for Mobile
Today when I tried to log onto this site on my smartphone using 3G, I received this message: "Error Triggered: Column 'ip' cannot be null." It was fairly annoying as it caused me to NMR in one of our test games.

However, I think it might be fixable, because the same glitch doesn't appear on vDiplomacy.com, only here. Do you know what the problem is, Flame?
