What is BOB BOB is a script that adds some functionality to this site, especially to the game-pages. Most of that functionality can be altered or turned on/off by the menu at the left of the screen.
2 of the most used added functionalities are the statistics table and the Map Inspect. The statistics-table is created from the logs, it shows for example how many armies someone received last time they started a turn. It also calculates how many territories everyone has in a fog-game. The map inspect-feature makes it possible to highlight some territories on the screen, for example to check which territories could give you a bonus. Highlighting is done by hovering over certain elements: players/teams in the statistics-table or on the right: highlight all territories of this player/team. card: highlight territory belonging to this card. Bonus/'continent' in the statistics-table or on the right (if enabled): Highlight all territories belonging to this bonus (if you need 5 out of 9, it will highlight all 9 territories). Territories on the map: Highlight (with a certain convention) the territories that border this territory. 6 different options atm: Border (2-way attack), attack-only, defend-only, bombard, bombarded by, mutual bombard
How to install BOB works for both Chrome and Firefox by default, but firefox needs greasemonkey installed. See this thread for the whole installation-guide for firefox. If you have Greasemonkey installed already, or you're using chrome, just click the following link, it will try to install immediately: GET BOB
Problems If the BOB-script doesn't work properly directly after an update (I've seen it show 2 bob-menu's on the left), try to pres 'ctrl-f5' once or twice. This should reload the page without using the cache (and thereby refreshing it). If that doesn't solve it, or you have another kind of problem, please put it in this thread (and try to put some details in it, maybe a certain map, a particular action).
Improvements If you can think of any improvements that can be made, please share them by posting in this thread. I'll try to keep my TODO-list below updated.
Changes in version 5.3.0: Fixed small bug when text map was enabled.
Changes in version 5.2.9: Config script location was sometimes still wrong on game pages, identifying it a bit different now.
Changes in version 5.2.7/ 5.2.8: Updated colors to be loaded in the script till 12 players + colour codes, Poly-games are now seen as proper team games, Flat-rate spoils estimate should be correct again now, If a bonus is done through the collections feature, bonusses should show up correctly again. Updated jquery to 2.0.3
Just clicked on ' upgrade available' on my BOB menu. After it was installed, when I now take a turn and click on side stats on the right handside of map instead of the players stats dropping down it takes me to the top of page and then when I scroll back down it has made all the players names dissapear from the right handside. The only way to see stats is to look underneath the map. Any idea how I could fix this?
There's something going on with the territory count since 5.2.0 (for example Game 10198534). It's showing the correct number of regions directly followed by a (seemingly) random number - 258, 227, 2212 and 208.

To be more precise, it happened in version 5.1.7 or 5.1.9 for the first time, and happens for standard (not extended) stats, the total bonus for teams is put directly behind the amount of territories.
