I didn't want to propose a full reinstall of Firefox, but I'm glad it worked out.

I noticed that on USApocalypse, BOB says that 3 radiated territories gives -1 troops, when it should really be 0 troops. Not sure if this has been raised before, but is this a glitch?

Do you have an example game or a screenshot?

Game 12543690.
sandman175 is holding Dallas, Illinois and Old New Amsterdam.
BOB shows "Radiation Effects (-1)", and troops due as 6.
CC's stats correctly lists it as 7.

Hmm, apparently the XML on this map has been modified recently in order to take advantage of the new collections feature which provides progressive bonuses for holding varying numbers of territories in a bonus zone. Previously there was a complicated interlocking set of continents which provided the peculiar progression of values. Now the code is simpler, but at first glance I am not convinced that it is equivalent to the old code or that it provides the numbers listed on the map legend. I will investigate further and let you know what I find.

EDIT:

Okay, since this XML has been up for a month at least, if the bonuses were not working properly, there would have been a great hue and cry, and what I read in the XML Guide has straightened me out (when all else fails, RTFM). So the problem is that BOB does not understand how to report collections. Okay, that goes on the list of things to fix.

It's already been noted that there was an issue with the new XML.

Re: BOB 5.2.4 on Chrome?

Postby johnkelly00 on Thu Apr 04, 2013 12:17 pm

Chrome tells me that I cannot install scripts from the official linked source. Any suggestions on how to get around this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Go to the top of this page and enter "Chrome" in the "Search this topic" field. You will see a number of recent posts which should be of help.

Not sure if this has been covered but I'll ask anyway.
I'm on my dad's new laptop and I've installed BOB and the greasemonkey.
The problem I'm having is that when I get a message or try to access the forums it says I need to log in, even though when I return to my games i'm still logged in.
What have I done wrong?
Thanks

Update on BOB install issue: I was finally able to fix this.

I was unable to install BOB on my new computer despite trying all the suggestions: re-install Greasemonkey, clean reinstall Firefox, cut and paste the text field, etc.

What finally worked was" I clicked on "Help" in the Firefox menu bar and , then selected the second option "Troubleshooting Information", then lastly clicked the button at the top right "Reset Firefox". It saved my cookies and bookmarks, everything else was cleared out, including Greasemonkey, which did not occur when I ran the clean Firefox re-install. I then followed the install Greasemonkey and install BOB links provided at the beginning of this thread.

Just wanted to throw this out there for anyone else who may be having this problem. Ender 516: thanks for your help, you got me past the initial BOB install issue I was having that I couldn't figure out, just wanted to pass this fix on to you in case someone else runs in to this problem.

I had already searched. Nothing seems to work - am I missing something? The closest thing was this - but I don't see how I can a) download the script and b) "drag and drop" it to the Chrome extensions area.

"If you trust the code, easiest way is to download it, open the extensions tab in chrome and drag&drop the file there. That will start the install-procedure."

Thanks for the info. I have never been on that Troubleshooting page, and that Reset Firefox button looks like a great last resort. I'll keep it in my back pocket.

Update for those having trouble with Chrome AFTER being able to install BOB on it.

The issue is with Chrome 27: https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.or ... w64iqHXJTI

The script breaks on line 80:
Code: Select all
if (!GM_xmlhttpRequest) { //chrome supports this function now


This used to work on Chrome 26, but they seem to have changed the way undefined variables are handled in 27.

Re: BOB 5.2.4

Postby red42 on Mon Apr 08, 2013 12:55 pm

A workaround for this issue, for the devs:
I changed line 80 to:
Code: Select all
if (typeof GM_xmlhttpRequest == 'undefined') { //chrome supports this function now

That did the trick, but then the issue returns further down the road on line 636:
Code: Select all
var oldHandleFrom = unsafeWindow.handleFrom;

This time telling us that unsafeWindow is undefined. And I have no idea what that's supposed to do. :)

Sorry for the techy stuff, I figure it's mostly useful for ender and the other devs. :/
