Re: Multiplayer slow game server

But seriously, the supply issue resolved when his planet got to +2 and reconnected to my network, it's just the turn where we have equal supply that went wrong. With two non-allied players this is exactly the desired behaviour - neither empire gets the supply while they're equal - but in an allianc...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

I've updated the server. It still is based on the same version so you don't need to update the client. I made some preparation for delegation support and team support, last one waits for https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/pull/2543 to be merged. I added notification the player who last didn't ma...

If someone needs to leave due to Real Life issues, we should maybe make allowances for a substitute to take over.
Delegation will be supported next game, maybe I've even implement it this game.

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

2. When a player quits, his/her empire is run by a very specific "defeated" AI, which focuses solely on defence - all colonies have defence focus, all research is in blue defence techs, and all industry is spent on immobile defence platforms (which don't exist yet but hey). This will make conquerin...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

Hmm. So, i was getting that intel because we [you and o01eg] were allies. I assume he conceded (rather than "resigned", since that word apparently doesn't mean what i think it does). Since we are no longer allies, i didn't get the intel that he no longer owns the planets? Correct. And, presumably, ...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

Oh dear, something bad has happened. I just turned, and as I was the last I stayed logged on, and watched the turn process. It said "downloading and unpacking new game state" ... but it never finished. It would let me issue orders for the new turn, but the button still said "Revise Orders 68". So I...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

somehow I disconnected without the turn uploading properly. Is some (additional?) in-game "orders received" confirmation needed then? I suppose he logged out without pressing "Turn" button, so he wasn't marked as a ready player. May be better to add confirmation if player want to disconnect without...

Re: Rapport - The Most Of All

I did post a couple times about it to a financial forum that had Consumer sub. I don't know if that lead to anything. Is there any way to determine how many new players are coming in? Maybe something like this is useful? https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeorion/files/stats/timeline?dates=2003-03-...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

[...] Regarding current game, it's been more than 5 days without a turn due to Magnate's absence without notice. In the Diplomacy world, when a player went AWOL, we would usually try to find a replacement player. Sometimes this didn't go well (in the opinion of the players upset by radical changes ...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

Yes, I'm going to add "last player" notification next game . Can I sign up to participate in the next game? Yes of course. Can I sign up to participate in the next game? I would also like to sign up. o01eg, are we supposed to message you? What info do you need, an email address? (From browsing the ...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

I've reset timeout counter to wait for him more time. Could it be that he missed the "next turn started" email? Would it be a good idea to send remainder emails when turn time is expiring or you are the last player to issue your orders in that turn? Even if he missed notification from the server, h...

I'm glad JonCST is safe and sound and that his power should be around the corner.
Now I'm worried about Magnate, are you OK? you haven't connected for three days now.

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

Hi. Hopefully we get an update soon. The outer bands of the storm are passing over us now: heavy rain, moderate wind. The eye is about 300 km SW of us, and predicted to pass about 40 km offshore. Main impact of storm should be this afternoon through tomorrow morning. Sustained winds predicted about...

Re: Hardest games ever

Why is Oberlus still allowed to give advice? Do you mean you tried some of my "hard" games and found them easy? Also, are you joking or mad at me? If it's the later, I'd like to know why; if it's the former, I'd like you to join some multiplayer game so that we can beat each other to death. I can s...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

Ok folks I am going away for four days. I might miss one turn[...] Thanks for the notice, and enjoy your time away if you're able. As far as missing a turn, i don't have an issue with extending the deadline for people who let us know they are going to be away. o01eg, after the next turn processes, ...
