Confirm End Attack

Postby destructo on Sun Jan 22, 2006 6:00 am

Lackattack,

think you could make a confirmation screen when a player decides to end their turn and commence fortifications? I got destroyed in 1 game because of it

Hi destructo,
I put some more space between the buttons, but I don't really want to put a confirmation because I think it will get annoying. Just be careful!

end attacks

Postby AndyBruce on Mon Feb 27, 2006 7:01 am

hey lack, First of all I just want to say congrads on all that you have done here. I just had a complaint. is there Any way that you can put something here to make it possible to go back if you accidentally hit end attack, or made just a extra message that ask you are you sure you want to end attack? I thought I was the only one here that had done that but the more I look I see other people doing it. I guess it's just so easy to do when you have got your mind completely tunnel visioned on the map and your moves? Is there anyone else that feels that way?

Maybe moving the button to a more remote area off to the rightside of the page might help, instead of right next to the attack button.

Moving the button is a better idea than "are you sure?"

IMO.

Yeah, I can say that after clicking on "yes I agree to end my attack" might get a little old after about 50 times. But still it would be nice to just have something to help out with it, the idea about moving the End attack button over would probably make a difference. hmmm, just don't really know though. I just know that it is bad when you set there for like 10 mins planning one attack, and then go for it and hit the wrong button. And you just sorta stare at the screen a min then you grab the key board and want to brake it over your knee.

More space between the buttons might do the trick. They are awfully close together. I think you might be misunderstanding me here.....i would not like a confirmation on every attack you make, just the END ATTACKS button , its a button you only click once a turn. 1 confirmation is not so bad, especially with the consequences involved. It would take 2 seconds extra a turn. Regards,

accidental end attack

Postby killerbee on Wed Apr 12, 2006 12:57 pm

Hi all,

Is there any possibility of moving the 'end attack' button away from the 'attack' button or have a 'end attack confirm' button.

cheers

You could always have Confirmation pop-ups like "Are you sure you wish to finish your turn?" or for attacking or fortification, so there are no more mistakes. Like thinking that "Albania" was "Arabia" and fortifying the wrong country.

Popups would be A) evil, B) annoying, and C) javascript. I think a simple checkbox next to the [End X] button would suffice.

It's been suggested a few different times in other threads, but I think some sort of feature is warranted due to the actual large amount of people doing it (at least once).
