Re: BOB 5.1.5

Postby ender516 on Tue Sep 06, 2011 11:30 pm

There have been a few reports of BOB just disappearing recently, but a simple reinstall apparently does the trick.

I am using 3.6.22 with BOB right now.

Good to hear. I'm not sure what is triggering this: a Firefox update, a Greasemonkey update, or a Windows update. Luckily, it is more a nuisance than anything else.

just to confuse you a little more. the update that made Greasemonkey disappear had no impact on Speed Turns.

does that make Speed Turns the cockroaches of the add-on world ?

Not sure where I should post this, so here goes: in the current version (5.1.5) when a player is eliminated due to missed turns they are marked accordingly in BOB stats, but a player kicked out for missing too many turns has their stats struck-through as normal... Or at least in game Game 9599947 they are (FOG on, so perhaps you won't be able to see this error)...
Strange, no?

Hi downloaded BOB onto 2 different computers one using Windows 7 and the oother is a mac; on both when clicking onto a game the following message has come up "Parsing XML" and I am unable to get any further. Can you suggest what I am doing wrong. Thanks.

Sounds like you have the wrong version of BOB. You need 5.1.5. Go through the Get BOB link in the first post of this topic.

Known bug, and one I should really have fixed months ago.
But the next 3 weeks I'll be on vacation, maybe after that I'll have some energy again to fix a few things.

Not sure if this is normal, I just noticed it the other day, just started using BoB more often recently so... When I look at a game before I start my turn it has the victory requirements on the right, near the game clock. But then I press begin turn, and the victory requirements go away.. I need them to stay there lol so I can read it while taking my turn :D Thanks!

It's from BOB because there is a new data field on the My Games page (Round Limit). The script will have to be updated and this is NOT a site bug.

Re: BOB 5.1.5

Postby ender516 on Mon Sep 19, 2011 12:08 am

Okay, folks, since sherkaner is on vacation, we have two choices: live with this problem for three weeks, or try fixing it ourselves.

I have found the line to fix. If you do not know what you are doing when it comes to editing user scripts, you might just want to wait till sherkaner can fix this. If you do know what you are doing, you only have to change one character, a "1", to a "2". For some context, I have copied a section of the BOB script here and added some comments to make the change obvious. Take a look at this:
Code: Select all
function updateMyGamesClock(elements) {
      $(elements).each(function (){
            var currentHTML = this.innerHTML,
                  time = currentHTML.split('<br>')[2].split(':'),
              //                                   ^
              //                                   |
              //                                   +--< that was a 1, modified by ender516 to a 2 to
              //                                   deal with Round Limits changes to My Games page
         targetDate = new Date(),
         secondsLeft = parseInt(time[2],10) + parseInt(time[1],10) * 60 + parseInt(time[0],10) * 60 * 60,
         additionalClock = $(this).find('.additionalClock');
      targetDate.setTime(targetDate.getTime() + (secondsLeft * 1000));
      if (!additionalClock.exists()) {
         additionalClock = $('<span class="additionalClock"></span>');
         $(this).append('<br />').append(additionalClock);
      }
      additionalClock.html(getAdditionalClockInfo(targetDate));
   });
}


The spacing in this code may not be exactly the same as in your copy of BOB, because TAB characters get expanded differently in different environments, so I replaced some here with SPC characters (spaces). I needed my little ASCII arrow to point to the right thing.
