Using backgammon software / Re: Fibs on a Chromebook?
« Last post by Saison on July 04, 2018, 07:01:03 PM »
Thanks Maria, no luck with Crossover. ParlorPlay is not the best but it works on a Chromebook. Hate to stop using fibs but cannot buy a computer just to play ;(

If you hear of anything else please let me know?

Thanks!!

Fibsboard Forum Matches / Re: How do 'luck' calculations work..
« Last post by jools on July 04, 2018, 03:22:33 PM »
I know this is really old but I stumbled onto something interesting...

Yesterday I was feeling hard-done-by at my terrible luck, so I logged out and went for a bike ride.  I got about 3km before a car driver took me out. Now my left leg, right arm and, strangely, both thumbs are pretty banged up - so I'm recuperating and reading old threads on backgammon.

I have learned three things...

1. I don't need thumbs to play backgammon, although dressing and feeding myself are pretty tricky.
2. Suddenly, I'm pretty happy with my dice.
3. I have a much better grasp of what bad luck really is.

I'm sorry to hear that about ParlorPlay.  Not because I use it.  I did try it and found it to be the WORST FIBS client I've ever tried, and trust me, I've tried them all.  But I think the GammonBots use it, but I could be wrong.
I know very little about Chromebooks but I found out there is an app called CrossOver that will run Windows programs.
I don't know if it's free of if you have to pay for it, but it might be a solution.
Here is a link to an article about it:

Good luck in your search.

Using backgammon software / Fibs on a Chromebook?

Looks like Parlorplay is going down. Does anyone have any ideas on how to use Fibs on a Chromebook?

Thanks!!

Did you try it out on macOS?

Curious if it's really as bad as the reviews say.

Backgammon problems / GNU bg Increase screen font size
« Last post by snowflake on May 14, 2018, 04:06:01 PM »
In GNUbg, how can the font size be increased eg hints / pips on screen (I don't want to put on glasses just to read the pip count). Thanks!

Using backgammon software / CometBG Android interface for FIBS
« Last post by michael on May 10, 2018, 01:49:08 AM »
Does anybody know anything about this. I downloaded it onto my samsung S5 phone but it is really basic and does not seem to have a menu to log into FIBS.  I am wondering if it is my old phone that's the problem or is it really just a pre beta app?   A Google search on CometBG came back blank.
Cheers
Michael
