network games settings

Post by paul » Sat Jul 12, 2003 1:57 am

Hello.

I know that feature creep is always a problem, but it really would be nice if you could somehow see what the settings are for network games, preferrably in the join window. Size, placed, cards, etc. are all settings that are important.

Also, a way to specify a user name for network games you start or participate in would be nice.

Lux is great, btw, and it keeps getting better. Thanks!

Thanks for your feedback. The join screen will definitely be making more information available in the future.

When you host a game Lux takes the name of the first player set to Human as the host's username. Then there is a textfield in the join screen to set your name for games you join. Would it be better to have a spot to set the network-play username in the preferences window?

No, that's fine. I guess I didn't bother reading the manual....btw, this is a huge compliment. You can use all aspects of the app without ever having to bother reading anything. Good job on the intuitive interface!!!
