Help w/ player sides & Pre-defined setup

Help with “definitions of player sides” & “Pre-defined setups”

In the game , I have setup files for 2,3,4, and 5 players
I have player definitions for P1,P2,P3,P4 and P5.
When a player starts a 2 player setup, the game still ask
which side do you wish to be (P1,P2,P3,P4 and P5 ).

How do I setup so if the saved game setup is for a 2 player game, that you are only given the choice as P1 or P2 ?

I had the same question. In my game the number of pieces a player can use is limited by the number of players. It works by the following:
2 players - Each player gets 4 pieces.
3 players - Each player gets 3 pieces.
4 players - Each player gets 2 pieces.

I have 4 player maps defined as Black,Blue, Red, and Green which each have four pieces in them.

Is there a way to have a player choose the number of sides during startup and then configure the map boards to have the correct number of pieces available on them?
