Re: Revamp "Join a Game" page

Just press Ctrl when you're clicking so that it opens in a new tab and you can continue to join. I think changing it could be an issue for times when someone joins the last place on a team you intended to join and you get moved to other team and don't notice until it's too late.

Gamefinder suggestion

Postby tolekim on Wed Apr 07, 2010 6:21 am

CanI suggest that the settings I apply when using game finder can be saved because when I click what I am looking for and then select a game I have to do it all over again for another game when I might want to enter a few games at the same time. For example once you I have selected a game from gamefinder and joined it if there was an option to return to the game finder games that it found so I can select another one would be great.

Hope I've explained myself clearly.


Specifics:
  • xxxxxxx

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • xxxxxxx (you can obviously delete this for bug reports)
  • xxxxxxx

Bump this ! +1

Completely agree.

Following my 1st promotion it is now much harder to find the maps and games you want to take part in than it was as a new player.

Now i have to mess about for ages to try and get back to the same games and maps that are available when you start out as a new player.

The game finder needs a really big overhaul in my opinion. Not only does the selections need to save there needs to be a box for dragging in approved maps.

so that basically if there are 10 maps i like i can drag them into a box that the Game Finder will only search for.

Right now as it stands the maps i find are much harder than i want to play and too many players in them.

There is a script for Greasemonkey, called Saved Searches I believe. You can find it in the plugins & addons sub-forum of General Discussion. It does what you are asking for.

Thanks for the replies but as I don't use firefox it's no good to me. Surely it shouldn't be hard to add the saved searches option or the facility to return to the found games screen when a game has been entered?

I only use firefox for this site
chrome is getting more attention in the addons forum, maybe this will come for chrome soon

i'm not positive this is valid, and this is absolutely ZERO disrespect to lackattack, but he is the only one that programs and updates this site. If there is already an addon you can get, this probably isn't exactly at the top of his list even if it does get accepted. There will almost definitely be a full chrome set of addons before he has the time to implement this based on the trend in the addons forum. BOB and clicky's are being made for chrome right now (YES), then I will be off firefox for good as well.

PS if you still use IE, change, period. It is really really easy to get a better browser, either firefox or chrome, and it really does make your internet much faster

Game finder agent

Postby Mr.Jay on Mon Nov 01, 2010 5:28 pm

Concise description:
  • Have a game finder agent, that allows you to have a presaved game wishlist.

Specifics/Details:
  • Then you don't have to fill in all the blanks every time you search for a new game

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It would be a lot faster and easier to find a new game.

Absolutely marvellous idea.

Even if the game finder would automatically remember what was entered last time as defaults. This would be a big improvement.

Same thing for start game would be good as well.

We can't be the only ones that would like to see that in the game. And yes an agent to "Start a game" would be very nice. If it's possible then you could have more than one agent

I don't think I understand.
Can you elaborate more on how this would work?
What changes to game finder would have to be made?

When you search for a game, then you fill in all the blanks such as "Game number", "Game status", "Game type" If there was an agent, you fill in the blanks and save the agent, then with one clic on the agent, it will search the games once specified.

I'm a newbie at Greasemonkey, how do you access this script? I'm all for the original post, but a script that would do the same thing is just as good.

While were are at it, another 'perk' of premium should be the ability to post in the forums. Too many folks get their rocks off torturing us with their blather, yet don't see value enough in the site to pay $25 a year?

Default Game Finder

Postby PapaGeek on Mon Sep 19, 2011 12:03 pm

Concise description:
  • Default search papameters filled in each time you enter Game Finder

Specifics/Details:
  • Add a "Reset" button to the Game Finder screen to clear all fields.
  • Add a "Save as Default" button to remember the current setting as your default.
  • Preset all search fields to individual's default values every time Game Finder is entered.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Finding games will be easier.
  • Less chance of making an error when filling in your favorite setup.
  • Current blank setting can easily be restored by hitting "Reset" then "Save as Default"

Postby chapcrap on Mon Sep 19, 2011 6:05 pm

I'd rather see many more things implemented before this. Especially if it take space up to store everyone's default. I guess I just don't think it's hard to use Game Finder.
