At first when I tried to launch gravon I couldn t do so and it turned out I had to adjust my security settings. Probably this is why it won t let you use the program.

In the last days, many players have registered on gravon and this is very good. Also, the level there is getting better and better. Stay tuned.

hmmm I see jugador_s has played 3k games @ gravon and has rating ca. 1500 with win% = 50%.

 

I played and beat him at stratego.com where he is ca 600 rating. I should be able to play some decently balanced games at gravon.

Quite likely a different person.

Since a lot of new accounts have been made recently and gravon is not the easiest to get into, nor the interface the easiest to use, I decided to make a list of things to help out people making accounts.

 

 

Getting Started

 

First off go to gravon.de (gravon.net for English version) and register an account (top right-hand corner)

One of the first problems most people have is with receiving their temporary password from gravon that allows them to log in initially. If you have not received your password make sure to look in your junk mail folder and if you still can’t find it look up Gravon in all your folders and see what comes up. If you still can’t find your password contact Thorsten (spion) at spion@gravon.de and discuss your problem.

 

Once you have your password you are ready to launch gravon. Initially you can try to launch it and see what happens.

If it will not launch it is probably due to java security. To fix this you will either have to allow www.gravon.de/ as a site exception in java security settings or download an older version of java that has less strict settings. If neither of these options help I cannot give any further advice, I hope other players may have more on how to fix this.

 

If it does launch fine then the new gravon window will pop up after java has run and you can enter your nick and password which you received in your email.

Congrats you should now be logged in to Gravon!

 

Hints

 

Before you start playing there are a few things that are good to do before starting.

One is to go to the top of the game bar and select ‘options’ then enable ‘auto query’. Enabling this allows you to receive private messages in a separate chat box from the game window, which makes it a lot easier for others to contact you.

Contact an admin if they are online and ask to have your stratego ranking enabled. The enabling process may take up to 2 weeks whilst they make sure you are not an alias etc.

Read through the list of commands; the ‘.W(username)’ one is particularly useful if someone has been away from PC and you want to send them a wakeup with sound. For a full list of commands go to http://www.gravon.de...von/befehle.jsp

 

The best time to play from personal experience is around 20:00-22:00GMT.

 

Navigating Gravon

 

Personally, I find that once you sign in the best thing to select is either the game you are wanting to play, or ‘User List’. If you click on the stratego game, it will show a list of rooms with current games you can go to these rooms by clicking anywhere near the game room with the players’ names.

 

If you are in the ‘Userlist’ you can click on any registered players name to see their stats and rank etc as well as what game(s) they play. If they are in another room you can press ‘go’ which takes you to the same room as them. The other little chat icon is for private chat, and works best if both players have ‘auto query’ enabled.

 

Once you are in a room and want to join and play games use this as a guideline:

http://www.gravon.de...atego/howto.jsp

 

Hope this helps some of you out, cu over there  B)

I see you can doenload games, but I can not choose to download games from particular players? What use is downloading then?

 

Doesn't it just mean 'player' in Spanish ?

Quite likely a different person.

 

Muy bien Tobermoryx, tú entiendes el Español! Eres la leche, tio! El puto amo!

 

Jugador = Spanish. Jogador = Portuguese. Definitely not the same players.

When I was on Gravon for the first time in over a year a couple days ago I noticed that the game I played with Sohal on Gravon three years ago last month was still available to see in the player versus player stats. Very nice. They must keep info forever. :)

I have a question. Once registered as able to play ranked games, does that ever change or go away so that you have to reapply?

I note that they have a forum over there the same as we do here.

You have to play at least 3 games in 2 months to maintain yourself in the ranking or 25 games to remain inthe challenge ranking. If you don't play these you disappear from ranking but as soon as you reach again such minimum you appear again.
