Hello everybody.

Greetinsg from a new Artemis crew in germany. As we are playing our first missions (our plan was to play through the Ardent series) we encouter difficulties with the COMMS station.

Unfortunately keypresses are not registred, e.g. when you have to decrypt a message. We understand that this is a common problem in Artemis, and the methods suggested for solving this bug have not been successful (firewalls are open, using onscreen keyboards doesn´t work as well). [confused]

Is there a way to circumvent this? Maybe with the help of the game master console?

If not: Can someone recommend a set of missions that does not rely on special COMMS interaction?

With kind regards,

the crew of H.M.S Wilma Fliegen.

Manticoran Navy?


Are you talking about the Ardnet mission where you have to decode an encrypted transmission? There are no comms button presses for that mission. It's a letter/word puzzle. You have to solve it by yourself. The second message gives you some help decoding it... So you ee there are no button presses for that mission.


If you don't like word puzzles, and I personally do not, then there is a version of the game that doesn't require the word puzzle element. Just download and play that [wink] .

Hi Arrew.

Thank you for your quick response. That is really helpful, as it was exactly the second Ardent mission we were playing [biggrin]

Is there some place to find this kind of description for any of the missions availble for download? I downloaded the mission pack, but there are only very seldom additional informations about the missions.

Greetings,

Pelzgurke

EDIT:
I just found the extensive mission descriptions on http://artemiswiki.pbworks.com/w/page/77222102/User-Created%20Missions.
I should read more thoroughly.

There are threads specificity for the Ardent missions on the forums and if you have any issues just post a question and hopefully someone should answer.

If it's about the Ardent S1-S4, STAR Corps, USN or Summer War missions feel free to contact me since I'm the maniac that made them [wink] .

Thank you again Arrew. We are thinking about having an Artemis themed gaming day at my place, and the background information really helps.

Do you think it is advisable to have one member of your group acting as a gamemaster? Mainly just spectating and giving hints when the crew is stuck?
