Re: rswgame 2.0?

I'd love to have such a thing, because people expect games to be played in-browser these days. The world seems to be leaning hard against downloaded game clients. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case at the time I wrote the current game client, in the early 2000's; there was no such thing as an in-br...

Re: End game score

For the record, the end-of-score table has been adjusted since this post, and currently looks like this: EndOfGameScore = { -5: (2000, 3000), -4: (4500, 5500), -3: (5500, 6000), -2: (6000, 6500), -1: (6500, 7000), 0 : (7000, 8000), 1 : (8000, 9000), 2 : (9000, 10000), 3 : (10000, 11000), 4 : (12000,...

Provisional / standard map sets

RSW players, I've just reviewed the user-provided game maps that were in "provisional" map sets and moved several of them into the "standard" set, so they'll be available to be selected in standard "classic" or "advanced" games in the future without tagging those games as specialty. Conversely, I to...

Re: WTF - I have been turfed oiut of a game??

My apologies for the problems! I don't know what happened here, but I was able to work with Jim to get him back into the game via the signup link. Please let me know if this sort of thing happens to anyone else in the future!

Re: Server appears to have crashed

Ah, my apologies again. I just ran turn 37 again, this time it stuck. The original turn 37 email should be disregarded in favor of the new one.

Sorry about that! I kicked the server in the pants, please let me know if it's working now.

Re: bottom4j

If you drop from the game now, leaving Ted the last one in, he will be declared the de facto winner automatically.

tailored3g turn delay

A player in tailored3g has requested that, in order to accommodate their travel, we pause the game for two weeks after the Feb 16 turn, so that the turn originally scheduled to run on Feb 23 will instead run on Mar 8. I agree that putting the game on hold is generally better for everyone in it than ...

Re: Client keeps crashing

Great! If the client doesn't offer you the upgrade when you get home, you might be running the 32-bit version there for whatever reason. In that case, go to the Clients page and explicitly download the 64-bit version.

Re: Client keeps crashing

Oh, and to be clear, the update is only in the 64-bit version. The nature of the bug that I fixed was that the 64-bit version of the client was running partly with a 32-bit limit. To pick up the fix, you'll need to switch to the 64-bit version if you're not already using it (and looking at the logs,...

Re: Client keeps crashing

OK, I did actually find and fix a real issue that could cause a crash with large game files, so I went ahead and posted a new official client update, 1.0.8.3. It should offer you this version to download; please let me know if it seems to solve the problem for you.

Re: Client keeps crashing

I'm pleased that Jim's offering the use of his client to try out; I've gone out of my way to design the RSW server to be compatible with existing clients for Starweb as well as be open to new clients (such as Jim's) developed specifically for RSW. I want RSW players to have lots of options available...

Re: Client keeps crashing

When you say it "crashes" do you mean the client just disappears? Or does it pop up an RSW error dialog and offer you to send the bug report to me? If the latter, then it's indeed a software bug in RSW that I should be able to fix; please do send the bug report to me so I can analyze it. If the form...
