Lux 3.83 - Hooray for updates

Post by dustin » Sun Feb 01, 2004 9:12 pm

Lux 3.83 is now available for downloadin' from http://sillysoft.net/Lux.dmg

The changelist:
- 'Show Continents' now works both when the focus is in the chat entry box and when not
- The Join Game screen will now display the name of the map when playing on a custom map
- Made the 'Board' column in the join window resizeable
- Increased the possible length of the 'Board' column to 120 characters
- Merged the cocoa and cross-platform development environments so that they can both be built off of a common source tree
- Changed the LuxTracker update time from 25 minutes to 10 minutes
- fixed a bug that would reset the border width to the default (but not the slider value) when the preference window was opened
- fixed the same bug as above with the computer player speed

Here is my request from a previous quote:

Can you please respond to this, or ask for help if you can't fix. I'm sure someone out there can help you if you don't know how to fix.

THanks

Dustin,

We need an upgrade. Couple of issues:

1. Crashing (players should note that one way to avoid this is to not bring up player info until all countries are selected)

2. Allocation of armies- no, or a fraction of armies are allocated.

3. Chat Box- fix this bugger

Thanks Dustin, we're all looking forward to this.

Thanks for the improvements.

But the Chat Box is a huge problem. If the only thing that was fixed in 3.84 was the chat box, it would be the most valuable update I've seen.

Pi,
Could you elaborate on "2. Allocation of armies- no, or a fraction of armies are allocated. ". I don't know what you mean.

The chatbug will be fixed shortly.

Thanks Dustin! I'm still in training in Reno with my work Mac, so I haven't been able to play lux! : ( But I trust the chat box is better, sweet!

The other problem was, that once countries were chosen, every once in a while, players wouldn't be allotted armies to allocate. This would require a restart, sometimes a couple to get things right.

I'll be back, playing again on Friday night.

Thanks again Dustin.
