Downloading map files
I would like to download the maps for each turn in the 30-odd games I have played. Downloading each is painful, is there a way to download all those for game?

I would actually also really like this. When I'm putting together something like Where Did I Go Wrong it could save a lot of time, going through and saving the map for each phase (especially the largemap) is fairly tedious.

Sounds loke a feature request to me...

You could fairly easily write a script to fetch them.
(Scrupting is like coding, but tends to be simpler and thus a much easier thing to learn)

I can probably help you achieve this, but if you let me know why you want it, I might be able to help even more.

I have started to track games I have played, which country, results and so on with the aim of seeing where I can improve (call me weird but I can already see that my worst performance is Russia and my best is Austria). Reviewing local images is faster plus I can annotate them should I wish.

Thanks for the offer Abgemacht, I will send them by PM.

There's also the map archive:

http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=164615&viewArchive=Maps

Viewable at the bottom of the game page (the link that reads "maps"). Saving that to disk will save all the images, too.

There isn't a way to download just the maps without scripting it. I'd like to some day add detailed stats breakdowns to user profiles (probably on a separate page) including a breakdown of performance by country. I'd be interested in the specific details of what you're wanting to track- maybe it's something that a number of people would like.
Export game to *dpy mmmmmmmm.

Thanks for the link ATC.

Initially I have looked at result & position by country. Next stats-wise is to see if there is any notable difference WTA vs PPSC or Anon vs Named games.

You can see first pass analysis here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4gl29alxdhqb9m9/Screen%20Shot%202015-09-28%20at%2016.13.35.png?dl=0

The position column relates to place in the final list for each game. Median value is 4 (3 for Ancient) so in completed Classic games I have done a bit below par.

I have set up an Excel script that generates URLs for a specified game (and number of turns). That is coupled with Hazel script to tidy up the resulting file names. It's a bit clunky but it is working.

Autumn 2004 Russia F Ukr - Pol ???
How is it possible for a fleet to move from the Ukraine to Poland over land?There is no mention of any water way in the map variant or elswhere. Impossible move in my opinion. It would seem you are now allowed to move fleets from the black sea to the baltic???

Newbie Question
Hello, me and some office mates have just discovered this massively awesome game but we're quite intimidated by the level of skill that people have.

Is it possible to create a game with less than a full team of players, such as 5 man in the regular map. Or playing 10 man in the world map that says 17 players?
