webDiplomacy 1.00 released

1.00 fixes some bugs, leaving a cool-off period since the last releases which had several new features. webDiplomacy has had the feature-set originally aimed for for 1.0 for quite a while now, so rather than release something new and unstable for 1.00 this is intended as a stable release to start the 1.00+ releases off.

Congrats and thanks to everyone who helped make the first 5 years of webDiplomacy so great, hopefully the next 5 will be just as good!... read more

webDiplomacy 0.90 released (formerly phpDiplomacy)

Diplomacy is a popular strategy game in which you battle to control Europe, but this isn't a game of luck; to win you must be diplomatic and strategic, making and breaking alliances and bargains. webDiplomacy takes the fight for Europe to the internet.

With a complete adjudicator established in 0.8x, 0.90 focuses on improving the user-interface of the site; either making aesthetic improvements, e.g. wide-ranging CSS tweaks, providing more useful information, e.g. the new game-panels and home page, or adding new interface elements, e.g. the new game list search menus. Lots of other smaller features are added, such as e-mail validation, and we have changed the name from phpDiplomacy to webDiplomacy, since the "php" prefix wasn't widely recognizable to players as intended.... read more

Messaging, debugging

Added support for messaging (message.php), wrote a function to send messages and added messaging to gamemaster.php and its various includes. Used the increased debugging info from gamemaster messaging to debug mode three.
Also revised the method by which modethree.php records and resolves stalemates.

$orders revised

Rewrote the method by which board.php orders are stored, retrieved and updated. It's basically a much better alternative to the previous hacked-together method. Happy new year.

Gamemaster alpha

gamemaster.php made alpha, fixed a few board database errors involving coasts, and entered the map co-ordinates of each territory into the board database. Added support for the rest of the game modes in board.php.
The map and some debugging are all that's left before phpDiplomacy-alpha is released.
