kinda same idea, already been suggested by me..
My idea eliminated the need for the program to remember your last search, by allowing you to check a box, and be able to join all the games that you checked.
Its on the "unclassified" to do list
hes a link : http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=402572
Thanks,

Suggestion: Saving searches in Game Finder

Postby Floppie on Wed Aug 08, 2007 10:24 am

The title should pretty much sum this up. It gets kind of tedious trying to narrow down the open games selection using the search because it takes several minutes of checking maps and options every time I want to do it.

My suggestion to improve on this is to give us a way to save a handful of searches.

Beacuse new maps and options are regularly added, it would probably be best if clicking on a saved search would reload the search page with the saved options selected. This would allow the user to edit the search to include new maps they like and so on.

"Find other games like this" link

Postby Tyrion81 on Tue Aug 14, 2007 10:10 pm

I couldn't find a suggestion like this so here goes.

I was thinking that in the "My Games" lists or perhaps on the actual game screen with the map you could have a link somewhere which says "Find other games like this".... This link would take you to the game finder results page showing all other games that are the exact same game type and map that you clicked the link from and that are awaiting players.

I know this would be handy for me because I often like to play similar game types to games that I've just completed (or am still active in) and it can be a bit tedious going to the game finder all the time and filling in all the options.

From a coding perspective this should be fairly simple to implement and would actually be useful. I can't really see any downsides to this suggestion.

Idea stolen from eBay :D

Hey misterman,

I have seen that actually... I just figured this could be a small, easy one to integrate, especially for those of us who can't be bothered with Greasemonkey :D

I agree, that would be good. Or a sort feature so that you could list the games by type, sequence... so on. I've spent some time looking for those classic, sequential, flat rate games.

Game Finder (saved searches)

Postby jwrules547 on Sat Sep 01, 2007 5:53 pm

Anyway you can set it up to save your settings for "Game Finder"
Everytime i have to click 7 or 8 boxes to look for a game.
Also sometimes i do it fast and click one wrong box ending up in a game i didn't want to be in.

Thanks

Allow Save Preference on Game Finder

Postby ferdglob on Sat Sep 22, 2007 5:55 pm

The idea would be to allow you to save your selections on the game finder, so you don't have to enter them in every time you want to find a game. I think many people play the same type of games, so this would save time in signing up for games.

Suggestion: Be able to have saved settings for GAME finder.

Postby Imagika on Fri Oct 12, 2007 4:36 pm

I hate having to click all my choices on Game Finder and Start a Game.

It would be great if we could save a default choice on both these screens.

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure there is a script already in existence that will take care of that for you.

There's a Greasemonkey script somewhere in the "add-ons and plugins" forum if you're interested. I still think it should be added to the site though, as a permanent feature.

Suggestion - Constant Preferances for the 'Game Finder'

Postby Metallic on Mon Nov 26, 2007 2:22 pm

Hi,

I have a few favorite settings when im looking for games, certain maps I like, certain types of settings that I like...

unfortunatly I can't save these , therefore I have to retype them each time I want to search for a game to join.

Can you please implament a sort of a template creator, so that I can save 1 or 2 templates ( 1 will also be ok) of my favorite settings in the Game Finder.

It will make my life easier...

Thankx.

Yes, this is fine for people wanting to use Firefox, but what about the majority of players in this game... that do not wish to install Firefox and/or use greasemonkey on top of thier Firefox?

This game shouldn't be browser orianted, and should provide a solution for the majority of the population and not just a small fraction of it.

Thankx.

Hey there Metallic,

Thanks for the suggestion, we have a huge to-do list and only one core coder so the greasemonkey route allows people to make features that not everyone needs available to those who want them much faster.

This may or may not make it in any time soon.

Have a good one

As Twill said, there's only one main coder. There is other things on the site that need more urgent attention. Your suggestion is helpful to some, but only to a few players. And the help it gives is quite insignificant at best. I'd rather Lack and co. spend time programming/fixing things for the site and community as a whole instead of for a few players who don't want to click six or seven extra buttons, especially when there is a perfectly reasonable alternative waiting for them.

If I were you I'd upgrade to FF... that way you can get the benefits of all the other extras that the community have coded...
