Automatic Game replay search

Postby Con-queerer on Thu Jun 05, 2008 3:30 pm

I love love Conquerclub!! One thing that I find a bit unefficient is having to input all the criteria for what time of game I want to play every single time I hit "Game Finder"...waiting for players, map, game type, escalating or fixed, casual, speed...etc.

I see two good possible solutions for this:
1) Save my criteria from my last search. I almost always play the same criteria. If my last search was saved, then all I have to hit is one or two more buttons for the search instead of having to check-off each critiera every time.

or,

2)At the end of a game, have a button that says "Search for similar game". This could be really convenient. Say for example I played a "World 2.0, casual, standard, escalating, chained, 4 player game". At the end of the game, it would be really great if I just had to hit a button that would search for a game with the same criteria.

What do you think? Thanks!

Already exists!

There is a greasemonkey script for just that:

Ability To Save Game Searches

Postby KingConan on Fri Jun 27, 2008 11:32 am

I often find myself searching for the same type(s) of game over and over. It would be more convenient if I had the ability to save different types of searches in a personalized list. So, for example, If I wanted to find all the 8 player freestyle assasin games that are waiting for players, or all the two player feudal empire games, I could do so at the click of a mouse.

Specifics:
Add a button or check box at the bottom of the game finder menu that says "Save this Search".
Allow the user to give the search a name.
Then show a personalized list of user searches off to the right of the search page.
Allow the user to click on a listed item (via link) to automatically find all the games that match the saved criteria.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
In my opinion, this would make finding and joining the games you have the most interest in much easier and faster.

Although this has already been suggested, it hasn't been talked about to awful much.

What about people that don't want to use Greasemonkey or don't like/have availability to Firefox?

They can try the Saved searches for Internet Explorer script.

Auto Game Finder

Postby Jonny_Morbid on Sat Jul 19, 2008 11:39 am

Could we maybe set something up where we don't have to re-enter the specifics of what sort of game we are looking for in game finder?
I find that most often I am looking for the same general criteria in most of the games I play. If I could do the search over agin right away, it would save me alot of time. Would it be possible to set up a memory for the common criteria so that I don't have to re-click up to ten things over and over again?
I believe this would encourage one to join more games at once, and get things going a little quicker. It seems like alot of games sit for weeks before anyone ever joins them. When you go through the trouble of selecting all the prefered criteria in a game, you just want to find one where there only a few empty spots left, so you can play it right away. However, if I could click once and be at the list I wanted, I would probably join up to ten games a day.
Another option would be to allow one to choose more than one game at a time.

Already been done.

There is a "saved searches" script that you can use to save previous searches for later use.

Installation instructions are on these threads and also in the Plugins & Addons Forum

For Firefox click Saved Searches for Firefox

For Internet Explorer click Saved Searches for Internet Explorer

No, I know. Easy fix for it, though - change the includes.

The script writer is no longer active, so I'm going to move this to another location so it does work out the box but for
now read the thread or just change the includes to

Saving Start-A-Game Settings.

Postby NightWolf on Fri Sep 19, 2008 2:23 pm

Concise description:
    I have searched this forum, and have found no suggestion whatsoever that mentions this, so I figured I could ask the community about how they think of the idea of having their game setup options saved to be set to their favorite settings, so that they don't have to reset them each time.

Specifics:

    ---Creating a personal save for your settings for creating new games. e.g. always have the radio button for "Sequential Game" ticked, as opposed to "Freestyle Game".
    ---This is not nessesary, but there could possibly be a little listbox in which you could select your saved setting from, of which upon clicking automatically loads the settings referenced from that item.
    ---Since only Premium members can have unlimited games, thus may be creating many, many games at once, this could be a feature restricted to Premium members (This is debatable.)


This will improve the following aspects of the site:
    Reduce the time taken doing the tedious process of checking the same boxes for the settings each time you create a new game.
