To those of you wondering: after a stack of armies reaches 3,000,000,000, it begins to go negative.

Do what you will with that knowledge.

Does that mean that you buff the enemy army instead of killing it?

Do I dare ask how you figured that out?

how do the negative armies react in game?

Exactly 3,000,000,000? Or around 2,147,483,647- or perhaps 4,294,967,295?

Game crashes. The number is somewhere in the neighbourhood of just a little over two billion.

I did this last month: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=10980762
The limitation is known.

it's because the number is broken, not because your computer can't process it.

Once it starts going negative, you can't attack with it. It just says "you cannot issue an attack or transfer of 0 armies." As far as I know, it behaves the same as a 0.

And to knyte, 3,000,000,000 is an estimate. I think it's probably a little closer to 2,500,000,000, or somewhere in between--the slider moves the numbers so fast, you can't tell. And then clicking one at a time would, of course, take centuries. So I'm honestly not sure--somewhere between 2.5 and 3 billion.

I'm sure it's 2,147,483,647 as knyte said, as that is the maximum value of a 32-bit signed integer.

If it goes negative, does that mean that the amount of armies will go downwards ?

How about just giving us a couple of screenshots instead?

oh fizzer, why didn't you use unsigned int instead so we could all have double the fun breaking the game.
