Updates 12/22/13 - Gaming Interface, Speed Autos, Maps Page

Postby bigWham on Fri Dec 20, 2013 1:37 am

Greetings Conquer Dawgs!

Long have the sophisticated Club elite reveled in the fancy game interface options provided by the Add-On 'Bob'. For almost as long have those users been subjected to the abject horror of their Bob features breaking every time the site was updated. Meanwhile new users, and users less familiar with the vagaries of Add-Ons, Greasemonkeys and unMicrosoftian browsers have struggled on with an interface that has become increasing, well, deficient. Now we have a solution for these perplexing quandaries.

We are proud to announce the release of a new Conquer Club gaming interface, that comes with almost all features of 'Bob' built-in... and more!

  • Browser Compatability - Works on all major browsers - Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
  • Panel Based Console - Position your gaming panels where you want them!
  • Floating Action Panel - You can float, move and resize your Action Panel if you choose
  • Enhanced Mobile Functionality - Much improved mobile performance
  • Snapshots - snap and recall game state
  • Map Inspect - check all borders, player and team territory ownership by mouseover
  • Per Map Settings - Map Size, Map Opacity, Circle Whiteness
  • Advanced Stats
  • Additional Game Info
  • Text Maps
  • Color Coded Dropdowns

NOTE: The New Interface comes turned OFF by default for existing players. You will need to go to Game Settings to turn it on. Also, you will need to disable the Bob Add-On!

Here is some Help On Using the new Interface.

As well as being able to toggle the New Interface itself on the Game Settings page you will also find a number of new features related to and bundled with it:

  • Advanced Processing - turn off some of the fancier features on the interface in order to speed the game up
  • Map Inspect
  • Color Coded Drop Downs
  • Confirmations - Deploy, Auto Assault, Phase End

And there are more new features

  • Speed Autotournaments - The technology to run speed autotournaments is in place... look out for a Speed Auto on the Tournaments Page.
  • Hide Left Nav - On the Left Nav you have the option to Show, Hide, Hide In Game or Hide Not In Game the entire Left Nav. This is especially great for small screens.
  • Maps Page - Maps now have a new, more accessible, home. Implements this Suggestion by greenoaks
  • List Game Finder results from oldest to newest - Available as an option, this implements this Suggestion by Metsfanmax
  • Chat auto-refresh to casual team games - Chat in Team games, where communication is key, will now autorefresh, implementing this Suggestion by natty dread (note, autorefresh was not added to all casual games due to likely server load and potential user experience issues).
  • Map Discussion from games - Expanding on our previous release of map discussion threads for Beta Maps, all games now contain a link to the Map Discussion thread, Implementing this Suggestion by chapcrap
  • Add Tournament Types - New categories for Tourneys are now available, implementing this Suggestion by Gilligan
  • Tournament Info - Small update to Tournament Info page, implementing this Suggestion by patrickaa317
  • Tournament Medal Winner Text - Description text for tournament trophies has been improved, implementing this Suggestion by iAmCaffeine

"Start A Game" and "Game Finder" are the sections that need more attention.

Very excited about this update. I've had BOB for years, but only turn it on for difficult moves and snaps because it always slowed down my machine. Plus, I could never install it on my work computers or phone, so having snaps built in is just a tremendous update.

Issue I have with the new update

SIDE STATS :
They are on the right side of the map ...
The original Settings allowed to have it BELOW MAP or BESIDE MAP in Settings Options ...
Now you have to double click to have it show up below the map
You have to do this for EACH and EVERY TURN YOU TAKE

DO NOT LIKE THIS OPTION
IT SHOULD BE AN OPTION IN THE SETTINGS AREA

I didn't like it at first either but I think you can change those options under game settings in your personal menu. I messed around with them there because I like my in game menus/stats under the map as well. All my games are like that now after changing it. Still getting use to it but I think I like that I can toggle between overview,chat, etc on it now.

you should not have to change the positions of panels every turn you make. once you position them how you want them they should stay that way, for that browser on that computer. you can have them a different way on a different browser/computer. if this is not happening then it may be a bug, so please report it with screen shots.

I totally agree...very annoying and confusing. Can this be an option for us: Have the side stats either be A) on the right side or B) below the map?

Also, it would be nice to have the chat log back on the top like it was with BOB...

you can put the chat log on top... or under the map, or under the console on the right. move it around via the "Move" icon on the right hand side.
