Problem with the game clock:

http://www.conquerclub.com/game.php?game=1257268

While on the my games page it shows I have 8 hours 15 minutes or so, going into the game itself changes that to 8 hours less (i.e. just 15 minutes and counting).

Dunno if this has been already been reported, nor what causes it.

missed turns?

Postby Angus Khan on Sat Nov 24, 2007 7:46 pm

The script seems to be working ok, but I have gotten a few blue screens of death on my XP machine. I'm still trying to work out if that is a hardware or software issue.

The only bug I've noticed is that the Missed Turns isn't accurate in the BOB Extended Stats window. I would have guessed Yeti parses the Game Log and keys in on the "missed turn" line and looks who is there, but apparently it is getting it from someplace else?

I've got a problem with Bob in that I can deploy my armies, but cannot attack. When I click either of the attack buttons, nothing happens. I have to click the GM monkey and disable bob, return to the game by refreshing the page then carry on my turn. Any ideas what's going on?

There are no other scripts installed/showing when I right click the monkey.

I've been able to narrow down the -1 pixel thing. When Firefox is maximized, all maps are fine, armies are perfectly aligned at 0,0 settings. When Firefox is not maximized, then all maps are off by 1 pixel and need a left setting of -1 to align.

No idea how to deal with that... but there it is.

Help File / FAQ?

Postby Shino Tenshi on Tue Nov 27, 2007 11:43 pm

I'm wondering if there's a help file or FAQ available for AJAX BOB?

I have recently installed it and it looks like it will be a huge help. There's a couple of things I'm curious about though. Namely how does the strength get calculated and what's with the - and *'s to the left of strength/right of territories?

Other than that, just a general basic help file and breakdown of the different features would be great if it existed. If not, perhaps that's something for the to-do list?

There is a help button in the BOB menu on your left...

However it's not upto date at the moment!!!

But it will have the answers to those 2 questions.

a) Strength is a calculation based on number or armies and number of territories (I can't remember the exact workings)
b) the *'s are the number of territories needed to capture from that person to drop them by 1 reinforcement...

i.e. 12* means they have 12 territories (4 reinforcements) - if you take 1 then they will have 11 and 3...

14*** means they have 14 territories (4 reinforcements) - if you take 3 then they will have 11 and 3...

Thanks for the help yeti_c... I found it earlier today and found it a nice help.

On another note...

I am wondering if it would be possible to replace the 'Armies Due' information in FoW games with the last known amount that the player got from the game log?

I find myself constantly scrolling the game log to check how many reinforcements everybody got and a feature like this would save a lot of time and headaches. I suspect that many others would find it useful as well.

EDIT: Possibly the territory values for the armies due could be gotten by calculating the remaining territories each player has as well? This info is gotten by the last count of territories in the game log plus all territories conquered by and from each player.

is there any way you could put something on the bob menu that would tell us if an update is available? if not, then can you at least put a link on the menu that goes to the userscripts page?

I'm afraid that's not possible...

The links on the menu do come here though - so that should help?

I'm planning to do this in my next update... (barring any emergency fixes)

I was trying to think of a way of calculating the initial amount before anyone had played...

Of course that's easy... territories / players

right... you could cut the 2 steps down to one by adding a direct link on the menu (stating "Get Latest Version" or "Check for Updates" or something), but it's your choice. I think putting a direct link on the menu-in view of the users- would increase the rate at which users update it, meaning you would get faster feedback i think.
