find all ACTIVE games for a player

Postby junkmail456 on Tue Sep 25, 2007 12:05 am

Suggestion: When playing real time I sometimes like to find where a player is (when I'm waiting for their turn). The search screen will get me there, but it would be nice if their profile would show any active games instead of "all games".

Or is there some other way to show when a player is logged on and actively playing?

This topic should be in the suggestions Forum (look there and you'll see that it's actually under discussion - here).

You can just click on his name
Then you look at his game history.. and you will see if he s active somewhere else

That screen doesn't show if he's currently taking a turn in the game or not, just that he is in other games. You'd have to open each game to see if he's active.

True, but that's better than nothing
also, yes you can see if he takes a turn with the yellow triangle icon

Use the game finder, enter the players name and check the box that says "active".

Right... but the yellow triangle does not display on the Game Finder screen, only inside the game. There are some people around here who keep 50 games going at once... it would be insanity to open 50 games just to find out which one he is taking a turn in, if he's taking one at all. Not to mention he could switch games while you are going through them and you'd never see that he's on.
