Broken Game

Post by Maginot » Sat Dec 12, 2020 9:34 pm

/lux/rankings/game/2146379

This game was interrupted and frozen on a third party host (STM).

All players disconnected, and the game finished with bots.

It should not count towards any rankings.

:panic:

thanks for the info. You know, that happened already in past, but unfortunately this happens quite often nowerdays - not only on third party hosts. In many cases the games continue after a while, usually after bots have taken over for some players.
Sillysoft should about know this issue. I hope someone will find a solution once to fix it.

Where would one sign up to help fix such persistent bugs?

One could try to track down the specific bug and inform Big D about the possible solution without signing up :).
Or does one needs to host some games themselves to track it down?.

I heard STM (SecondTermMistake) was trying to fix the bug as well. If you like, i or yourself can ask him about his progress.

I talked to dustin briefly about this via email or something... or maybe on these forums?

I don't think there's much I can do.

The best idea I had was I was going to make it possible to restart my host from Discord.
That way, at least when it happens, anyone who's playing can potentially kick the host and get it back online faster.

But I've been busy in the holidays and not sure if I'll get back to that project soon.

Multiple mid-game freezes and games finishing with bots this last three days.

More than I would have expected.

Can someone please ask dustin to change guest host privs so they can't restart a game during 30s countdown?

Some players, or shall I say one player, is too ADHD to wait 30s.

Give people time to guest in or out, for fuck's sake, and give other players time to show up for next game.

No, sorry, but these game hosts are unplayable, and the rankings and unreliable.

I don't understand why online Lux is so bad these days.

I'm constantly being (silently) disconnected from idle rooms after ten or fifteen minutes.

Kinda sucks when a whole bunch of highly ranked players are waiting for a good chase game, y'know?

:hmm:
