Re: What makes a good game?

1. Let others moon from time to time Most of people play here an „Ask” type of game, instead of an „Old moon” type. It means, that after a moon, a player can decrease his/her score by 26 points, instead of increasing by 26 the score of all the others. As of course it is in most cases crucial he...

What makes a good game? [TUTORIAL and HINTS] (The End)

OK, so after almost every game, players say a sacred: "gg".... Actually not every game was good. I would rather say, that less than 10% of them were good. Why do players say this and it sometimes compels others to say that the game was good? In my opinion a good game requires that every player tries...

Cheaters /ip tracing etc - Possible solution

Since the discovery of aristo's 25+ different names and accounts used here only to ruin games of others' players and making a mess, a process of IPs tracing was widely used to trace such cheaters and abusers. Many here think, that you should be able to play totally anonymously, others think, that th...

Playing with Aristo or not?

Recently many players ask me about AristoÂ’s case and what was wrong in using multiple names here. An explanation is rather simple and I thought I would write it here once for good as explaining it in Lobby takes more time every time. So why should we take care about players we play with? First of a...

Re: Solution for error with opening ports

I suspect there is rather something wrong with closing ports after the previous game. Some specific circumstances may occur, when the game is being finished. In example when - the host leaves the game just after the last card but before the results are shown or - when after the game, a player closes...

Re: Solution for error with opening ports

It also sometimes happens to me. Happily - that's rare. Restarting a computer and/or a router usually helps, when a port change gives no result.
Try it.

Re: hearts game can not host

Try to change your port as I advised some time ago here on forum (illustrations included). Try different settings.

If it won't work, then restart your computer, restart your router.

Re: Fraudsters

i am not sure if it was a fraud he pretended to be Iceman, Dean or me. I am almost sure that going with it to Apple or Microsoft would cause no result. What I know though is, that aristo indeed was a real pain here and his intentions were quite clear. There are other players using multiple identitie...

Error (frustrating but funny)

Aidan, on the picture attached you can see what happens sometimes, when a short connection problem occur. In such a case, when we lose a connection for a moment a few scenarios can happen: 1. Connection reestablished, game goes on 2. Connection broken, player kicked out of the game and game broken o...

Version 2.74

Aidan,

in AppStore, more than 3 months later (as for today, 2015/02/24), the newest version still remains 2.73. How can I update to 2.74 if I bought the app through appstore?

Re: Next Release?

I will also give a suggestion of a technical manner: in Lobby you select (highlight) players to invite them for a game. When you select a player or players for invitation but before you click Invite button: - status of any player would change - any player would appear - any player would dissapear (s...

Unfortunately no. 1664 all the time although in profile something else (1636). Remarks: The ranking points change just after the game on the "summary screen" before coming back to Lobby. The points are also properly displayed in profile. In Lobby it looks like a frozen value. Either from another tab...

Re: Ranking points bug?

After having read your post I had in Lobby 1664. Then I lost a game. This is what I see in Lobby after last game:

Same after relogging.
Ranking is not most important feature for me. Just see a bug.

I have all the time same amounts of points in lobby - 1664. After you wrote that - I had 1653. And after another game won by me. No change.
