Yeah I have FF, but I just don't like how it works with other sites, so I rather limit the use of FF to a minimum... Oh Well. :D

Thankx for the help! :D

Suggestion: saved search settings on Game Finder

Postby PsyDev on Thu Nov 29, 2007 9:58 pm

* Suggestion Idea: Allow search settings to be saved in Game Finder to reduce time taken to search for various game types.

* Specifics: When I search for games, I don't want to fill in a number of checkboxes each time. There are certain things that I want every time, and I only occasionally change from them. For starters, I only ever play sequential games, never freestyle. I also am totally uninterested in fog of war, etc. There are a lot of game options that I eliminate by default. It would make my life a lot easier if I didn't have to fill these in each time.
I think there should be a "default" search profile that you can save, so that each time you run Game Finder, it's already filled in for you with your default search preferences. This also makes it easier to do slight modifications to your default prefs each time you do a different search. You should also be able to save some pre-defined search settings under names you like, e.g. "2vs2 doubles chained", "6-player standard unlimited <map_name>", or whatever you want to name them.
Also, it might be nice if instead of only having checkboxes under which maps you want to search, perhaps an option that says "never this map". I know you can just checkbox every single other map, but this seems easier from a user interface point of view.

* Why it is needed: I need to save my precious life time and I want to join lots of CC games with as little hassle as possible, as well as browse through different views of gametypes quickly without having to painstakingly enter all those options each time.

Thanks!

This has been suggested before multiple times. For future reference, please use the "search" function before posting a new suggestion.
Thanks for using the form!

Thanks for the link. I didn't see it in the suggestion box already as "pending" or "rejected" or "to do" so I thought I should suggest it.


edit: It should probably say under "rejected": "visit this link instead"

Automate your Game Finder AND your Start A Game options.

Postby riskfreak on Wed Dec 19, 2007 8:08 pm

I've been using a tool with Conquer Club to save my favorate Game search parameters, and to create games.

The Selenium IDE extension for the Firefox browser, allows you to record all the actions you take, as you painstakingly set every option for the game of your choice, and then allow you to playback all those actions, whenever you want.

The IDE seems to be far more powerful than that, but using it to select your favorate game options is a real plus.

it is most useful , for example, when I want to search or create, for terminator/seq/nofog/public/casual games with my favorate 5 maps.

There's already a grease monkey script to do saved searches. Lack would appreciate if you NOT use the Selenium IDE to save game creation. The powers that be have deemed that players should create games one at a time. Thank your for your cooperation.

Oh, I wasn't trying to suggest that you use it to create more than one game at a time. I can see why you might think that, because I said "5 maps" in the last post.
I meant, "I was looking for ONE game, that may have one of those 5 maps.

I suggested it because it is useful for creating a single game, with all the options done right the first time..... no dropping the mistake game, and hitting the server again to re-create the correct game(hopefully).



I have never tried creating more than one game at a time, and I understand why the "powers" would not want that.

Thanks

Savable Game finder options

Postby commander71 on Thu Feb 07, 2008 12:55 pm

CC is an awesome site but I have one small suggestion to improve it. I find I am always selecting the same options in the Game Finder to find games of the type I like playing. It would be neat if you had a Save this search option and then a player could go to My Saved Searches and just pick one and search for it. Just an idea.

Quick Search Option for Game Finder

Postby Pip Squeek on Sat May 03, 2008 11:40 pm

Description:
A quick search to be able to be able to find games faster would be helpful and save a lot of time. That way you do not have to do a lot of clicking just to search for the same type of game over and over again. I know it is not needed, but it would make things a lot nicer.

Specifics:
  • Searches a saved preference for a particular criterion for Game Finder.

There's a plug in that does this. Have a look at that forum.

Premium Perk - Save favourite game finder tick boxes

Postby Pedronicus on Thu May 15, 2008 11:53 am

I'm fed up of clicking the check boxes on the game finder:
  • Premium membership needs additional perks, and I don't think this would be too much to ask for as a small addition

Specifics:
  • You click on a box saying 'Favorite games style' tick the boxes of the game finder that you most want to look for and then click 'confirm save'
  • Then after finding a game of your choice, you go back to game finder page, click 'favorites' and instantly search again for the same settings

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • more people will search for games
  • less new games will be started cluttering up the join games list
