What's New
Version 10.2 (1.7.0.3):
  • Automated game host server: TripleA now includes a fully automated server which can run from a terminal with no UI, or optionally a small UI. People can setup multiple of these, allow anyone who can not host themselves to join the game room and set which map they want to play, and then play without port forwarding.
  • Fixed issue with not being able to join or host games: Some user's Java jvm's were only allowing a max of 1g memory for TripleA, while TripleA 1.7.0.1 was requiring 1.2g for Join/Host online, causing it to fail or not start at all. 1.7.0.3 has a max limit of under 1g, and also allows customizable max memory in the 'engine preferences' button and also in its 'system.ini' file.
  • Some bug fixes: Territory Effects were not being applied, National Objectives for multiple territories were not working properly, Paratroopers hit by AA were not dying, Notifications were not localized for clients online, and several other bugs.

I've been playing this game for several months and enjoy it very much. It is essentially a computer version of the old Axis and Allies game; however, it has many different scenarios/variants available for it -- some included in the download and a lot more available online.

The game/code is a freeware work in progress and there is a dedicated and vibrant support/development community.

The price can't be beat and the game is purdee stable. The development group is also very responsive to bug reports; the one real bug I reported was addressed right away and fixed in the 1.4 beta release.

My only criticism is that the documentation is spotty (hence the 3-star Ease of Use rating, for an otherwise very smooth UI -- once you understand it). I had to search a while to find an actual manual for it (the purported manual is just another copy of the game tips Tactical Handbook). And even then some of the UI mechanics had to be learned by trial and error. That said, it didn't take too long to figure things out, and the the time spent climbing the learning curve was enjoyable atleast.

There is a newer version, however, than the one listed above, i.e.:
