Re: BOB 5.1.7

imacamper wrote:Thanks for the update. However new version's snapshot in chat is different. In 5.1.6, clicking the button posted a "note to self" in chat with the snapshot link. In 5.1.7, clicking the button pastes the "snap::" URL in the chat but doesn't post or check the note to self box. Is this by design?

Also, I'm curious if I do not remember to click "note to self" in a fog game, does that mean the snapshot reveals my positions to all? That wouldn't be good...

Cheers,

Drew



YES it does reveal your positions if you accidentally/somehow hit post with 'note to self' not ticked!
Another player did it in a singles 3 player game and I then knew all his positions!


Other stuff...

- The need to manually hit post is a little annoying, but I see it's being worked on.

- When I've had an update that makes BoB vanish or I select 'Hide Menu: ON' (I think that;s the option hat mucks up on me, I don't want to test it because...) I can't get BoB to pop up even if put the pointer in left of the screen, so I have re-install both GreaseMonkey and BoB, then it returns to normal.

-B!

EDIT:
Interesting, Due to something I read in forums I decided to check 'About FireFox' to see what version I had, it was V8.0,
then it auto downloaded installed a 7Mb update.

Which turned it into V9.0.1 (and opened up new tab with a video about how FireFox is free, which was more or less sticking it up Micro$oft and 'Internet Explorer', I guess!!) :)

Anyway, now when do a 'take snapshot in chat' BoB now enters the snap shot, so no need to manually press 'Post Message' anymore.

But I do have problem with at least one map 'South America' where it does not highlight the regions needed to get bonus for 'Andes [4]' yet hovering on all the other 'Continents Overview' on that map work fine. Have checked a few other maps and they all seem to work fine.

-B!

I made a quick check on some of my games, both active (Colisseum) and finished (Pearl Harbour) and it looks like the highlighting is broken on the first continent in the list.

Take Snapshot In Chat

Postby TheTrueNorth on Fri Dec 30, 2011 11:33 am

After clicking on 'Take Snapshot In Chat' I have to scroll down to 'Post Message' & click on that in order for it to show up in chat.
all I get in the chat line is
snap :: 1~DbDbDeDeDiDgDcDdDcDiDcDeCiEhDiDaEfEgDeEfDdDeDfDfDhEfDdEhCdDbEgDbDaDgDcEhDhDdDiDcDbEg
before hitting post message.
After clicking it the snap is in the chat as it would be normally.
it's been this way for a couple of weeks now.
Cheerz, & a great new year to all!

This is (or was) a BOB problem, so I am merging this into the BOB topic. I think it may have been dealt with there already, so you may just need an update. My head is aching too much right now to search back over the last few pages and find exactly what the story is.

I think I just changed it back to how it was. Firefox 9 seemed to work the other way though (submitting by using a jQuery function).

Hello. I was making some investigations about if can make changes to the snapshots in order to create fake snapshots and lie about postitions in fog games (and some other funny things with no success :P)

The result was that now when I am clicking at a snapshot nothing change. So can take snapshots but I can not see them. Everything else works fine. I reinstall BOB but nothing change. I have the last update.

I use firfox, win xp

Any help?
