Tigergammon Ready and Waiting
« on: November 25, 2012, 04:25:28 PM »
I am happy to announce that Tigergammon seems to be bug free at last! 

There are currently 19 bots of 6 categories ready and waiting to play for those of you who like the bots.   :)

What we need now is real players to populate the site also.  So, please, come on and give it a try!   :thumbsup:

The new login info is:       host     ti-ga.com
                                      port     4321

For javafibs, go to preferences/server, then type in ti-ga in place of fibs.  That's all you need to do.

As soon as we get enough players interested in tourneys, I'll be running some tourneys there. 

Your host is andreas or hannes, the same person.  He's worked long and hard to make this a great place to play.  Thanks to you, andreas!

Thanks socksey :) for your advertising.

Indeed - this is the official announcement that TigerGammon is on rails.

This means that matches are handled correctly. This means I would even encourage to play league or tourneys on TigerGammon.
We will start to organize tourneys there, now.

When I still call it a "beta version" this is due to the fact, that there still may be some minor bugs. But they should only affect convenience. They should not lead to unlegal matches. Bugs should occur very seldom now.

Come to TigerGammon and enjoy.

No timeouts (apart from those that are caused by your own operating system).
No restrictions on number of saved games.
No restrictions on IPs. So even Germans may play bots.
No forced end of game or forced acceptance of invitations.

In short words. The old .ibs restored.

Hi Maria,

most of it should work. I haven't tested it for quite a while since hardly anyone uses it.

Either I test it and tell you (let's say in about a week or so)
or YOU test it and tell me (by message on TigerGammon or mail, if possible, andreas@tigergammon.com)

FIBS/W works there, just certain moves have to be typed in, like when getting off of the bar.

I must say…. What is SO nice about tigergammon is NO  rants about Israel and NO words of wisdom from  about droppers or what is proper or not proper.

I just love it .

well do so in a polite and thoughtful manner, without over-personalising slagging or cursin' fellow 'boarders, or your voice (and others who personalise) will be curtailed.

remember truth is all very well, your truth that is, but it maybe ain't another person's.

we are all  responsible for our words - they cause and effect

and if your words are going to offend or upset anyone, then i'd rather you kept your truth to yourself, or make the effort to edit and rewrite, until it is pristine and untainted

It's such a shame that people ( not only in this instance ! ) have the way of spoiling things ! Andreas have worked hard and long to sort out problems and to make Tiger into a site that would be enjoyed as much as we enjoy FIBS. I'm sure he ( and those who helped him) took great pride in anouncing that at last the site is ready for take-off... just so that he can be critisized. As for the "scum" remark. In all the time that I have been on Tiger, not once have I seen rude remarks, swearing or abuse.... makes one wonder where the scum gathers. Thank you for your hard work Andreas, I enjoy helping bring Tiger to life and give it a "personality" and a "face".

Thanks, Tanika and Stog, for your considerate words.

Amazing - considering what it is like on fibs, it seems like a very tamed bunch on TigerGammon. I think it will stay like that, as long as no visitors dropp in that carry bad intent.

  Well thanks for the kind thought but I'm mystified as to what I've done to deserve it, having not played on Tigergammon, nor having (as far as I know) upset anyone lately!
