Re: Version 3 - Suggestions

Plan is to make the game free with a subscription charge for network games only with a free 30 day trial. The subscription charge will work (later) for GrassGames' Cribbage also and all other future games (hopefully Rummy and Spades next year). So it may be a slow start but I hope things will pick u...

Re: Version 3 - Query to Everyone - Ending Network Games

Ok fine. I'll leave it in.

And yes maybe 2 confirmations is enough in a 4 player game - if one of them is the current leader.

The increasing quitter punishment is a good idea also.

Re: Version 3 - Query to Everyone - Ending Network Games

Ok, but does it get used successfully or not? Its something I need to re-write and I'm wondering to include it at all, or just have only a quit option where people will get punished for quitting, but hopefully it will not happen too often. It seems we need to weigh how often it gets used as designed...

Version 3 - Query to Everyone - Ending Network Games

Hello all, a quick question - does the 'End Game' feature get used much in practice? i.e. Where one player presses the "End Game" button during network play (in the pause screen) and the other players have to type "Y" in the chat to agree, which allows the game to be ended without the player being p...

Re: Version 3 - Suggestions

Yes its still ongoing. I had to write an avatar system from scratch and also rewrite the networking system completely (again) but these tasks have been completed. I'll be looking into updating the scoring / rankings system soon.

Re: board is tilted 90 degrees to the left

What platform are you running the game on that's showing this problem. I think there may be some rotation issues on iPhones or iPads - this will be fixed up in the new version. Try rotating the device, and also check the options too change the rotation settings in there.

Re: Solitare3D cannot connect to GrassGames

The scores system seems to be ok. What version of the game are you running? Also, have a look at the logs after you try to update the scores. Both the version and the logs are available in the "About" section within the game.

That problem has been fixed up - thanks for pointing it out - you should be able to create a new topic in the Sudoku forums now.

I've made a fix to this problem so ratings will get updated now also when a username is changed. This should have been in from the start - sorry to all. The ratings update coming in V3 will address the other problems you mentioned. Don't suppose you know the name "Spanish Kate" changed to so I can c...

Re: Version 3 - Suggestions

If all the tricks will be taken lay the cards down regardless if the queen has not been played. Stop the stupid delay just prior to the playing of the queen of spades.
Sounds good - will look into it.

Re: Banned for quitting?!

The chatting should not affect things in any way. However who knows I could be wrong. You should be able to login now - I'm not sure why you can't - I've cleared the ban. I've noticed a freeze situation that can occur when passing cards and will have a fix for that. Still logs would help so keep tha...

Ok you should be able to login again now. Knowing in what situation the game freeze's would help me fix the problem for the upcoming version 3. Or the next time you get a freeze, when you are back in the main menus, go to the about -> logs section and copy the logs and paste them here. I'll look int...

Re: Frozen games

I think the original post was talking about freezing during play, not in the lobby.

The "sleep" feature in the lobby is something that will probably be removed for the next version.

Re: Frozen games

The game tries to unfreeze itself in situations where network problems can cause communication to get disrupted. I've noticed one situation where this does not work and will be fixed up in version 3 - it happens when passing is complete and players are accepting the passed cards. If freezes happen e...
