FAQ (SEIV)

PBW

[PBW] stands for Play by Web and is a much faster version of the file transfer.

Sequential PBW

Does not support Sequential games. For right now, Sequential games can only be done on PBEM.

Simultaneous PBW

Although Simultaneous games can be done on PBW, they can also be done in TCP/IP or PBEM

  1. Game Administrator sets settings and should get all empire files so that he/she can start the game.
  2. Game Administrator distributes first turn file to the system.
  3. System sends files to all players.
  4. Players send the .plr files to the system for processing.
  5. System processes the .plr files, which are converted into a .gam file and sends the .gam file to all players. If a player did not do his/her turn, the AI takes over for that turn.
  6. Steps 4 and 5 are repeated until the game terminates.

Players only have a limited amount of time to process the turn, however, it is automated.
