Re: BOB 5.2.4

Here's a general workaround for Chrome, including for those who can't install BOB on it.

Greasemonkey scripts (like BOB) support is broken on Chrome 27, but Tampermonkey works like a charm. Follow these steps:

1 - Get Tampermonkey: http://tampermonkey.net/ (Just click on Tampermonkey Stable button and allow the installation)
2 - Get BOB from the official source: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/52341 (Click on the green Install button. If it asks, choose to install on Tampermonkey instead of natively on Chrome)

I hope this helps other Chrome users out there.

If Tampermonkey is all it seems at first glance, it may be the long-term answer to using Chrome to run Greasemonkey scripts which work in Firefox. It sure would be nice for development not to worry about how Chrome doesn't quite do what we are used to getting from FF.

you need to install greasemonkey first (before you can download bob) or do you get the xml parsing with playing?

That usually means you have installed an out-of-date version of BOB. Try clicking this: http://userscripts.org/scripts/source/52341.user.js

Hello, why did the snap buttons moved to the bottom of some maps?

That's related to changes implemented this past weekend -- moving the Round number label to the right of the screen, and moving the BOB buttons to make room for advertisements for freemiums. There are a few different topics floating around the forum about the havoc it's causing for BOB users and clickable maps.

Q&A Topic about it too

You're definitely not alone! The best solution I've seen proposed so far is to turn off BOB, take your turn, turn BOB back on, then take your snapshot, in cases where the BOB buttons have moved below the map.

I do not believe that the movement of the BOB snapshot buttons was deliberate. The BOB script examines the basic game page and inserts that row of buttons into it. The place chosen is right after the first thing at the top of the game page. For a tournament game, that puts those buttons just below the line with the tournament information. In the past, non-tournament games had that line, but it was empty, with zero height. With the latest changes to the game page, non-tournament games do not have that line in any form. Thus, the first thing at the top of the page is the "row" with the map on the left and the player list on the right. So, this should be relatively easy to correct.
Now, the issue with the site clickable map popups seems to be a separate one to me, but I have not seen the problem. Does it occur in both tournament and non-tournament games? If it only happens in non-tournament games, like the misplaced snapshot buttons, then perhaps the fix for hose buttons or a similar one will solve it. If it happens for all games, I will first need to know why I don't see it, and then perhaps I can figure out how to keep the popups out of the way.

The experience I've had so far is that the popups don't obstruct the clickable terits when the BOB buttons appear at the top where they belong. It's when they move to the bottom of the map that (in a majority of the cases) the popup messages prevent clicking on the terit to deploy/attack/reinforce.

I think I may have stumbled on to a "workaround" ... changing the BOB setting to move the chat to the top seems to have repositioned the popups so they don't interfere with the clickable maps functionality. It's taking a little getting used to, but I think I could get accustomed to having the chat as the first thing I see on the game/map page. Seems to be working in my regular games and in the tournament games.

Oh, I always have chat on top, so perhaps that is why I have not seen the problem, but then again, I never see the popups, so I'm not sure what the whole story is.

Yeah, I think the chat on top affects the page spacing enough that the popups are not interfering with the clickable maps. I don't have any open turns at the moment, but the popups say "Click to deploy" or "Right click to advance none" ... I don't even pay much attention to them except when they popup over the terit I'm trying to click on. Now that I've moved the chat though, the popups are far enough away I don't really see them anymore.

All right, folks, I have a version of BOB which seems to fix the snapshot button positioning issue. I don't have access to the userscripts.org account, so I cannot update the "GET BOB" link in the first post. However, you can try this version of the script and let me know how things work. If it goes well, we can see about fixing that link. So, here it is:
