Hi Jim,

I’m pretty new to online gaming with Steam. When you say ‘if you’re around,’ do you simply mean logged in to Steam and you’ll see which of your friends is there? Or do I need to formally check in somehow?

And, if I’m not playing how can I watch the game?

Thanks,

Chris Buhl

Jim usually posts things here throughout the week looking for players, either for SNF, or something during the week

And, if I’m not playing how can I watch the game?
He streams nearly everything on YouTube, and we post the SNF games here on our site

As we get further along into this, just a few pointers about getting involved with the games I run:

1.  Sign up here at the forums and introduce yourself.  One of the great joys of this has been meeting new people.  It also gives us a slight assurance that you're not a reprobate.  Re: excluding reprobates, Doug and I are grand-fathered.

2:  Friend me on Steam.  I am "Cyrano" there along with a billion others, but I use the same avatar there as I do here.  Or you could look in the Armchair Dragoons Steam group.

3:  You don't need a flame-throwing computer to run these games, but it's got to be mid-range.  Also, your connection is as if not more important.

4:  Headset and microphone, please.  We use Steam chat for voice and it works well.  Better than TTS itself some nights.   If you've got that echo thing going on, we'll as you to "push-to-talk" to prevent everybody from going buggy.

5.  On game nights, usually 1800-1900 Wednesday and Saturday I will look about and see who is present.  If there are slots available, I will invite you.  I always feel dreadful if I don't tap people on the shoulder and offer.

6.  Once in game, if you haven't, turn your lift height to the minimum.  This is the little weight-lifter dude at the top right of your screen.

7.  There is no note #7.

8.  Be excellent to each other.


I'm hoping to log in tonight and try to get into the game, or at least observe for a while. Where do I go to find you all or be found?

Join the Armchair Dragoons steam group. Then send Cyrano a friend request.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

Cyrano and Dragoon’s,

Hello my name is Joe Noll, I’m a war gamer living in WV, and am happy to be a new member of the forums.   I’m particularly interested in TTS and became so after watching many of Cyrano”s videos.   I play moist of my games in person, when Covid isn’t present, and these range from Chain  of Command to Conflict of Heroes.  I have an interest in Napoleonic and Ancient periods.  But honestly I’ll play anything.

If i could get into a TTS game, i would be very appreciative.
