Android: Finished games with buddies don't stop Wed, 23 July 2014 12:09
Hello,

I have a problem with Smallworld running on my AndroidTab:
I often play games with one friend - and some of the games don't disappear in my "running games" list, even after they ended. When I click them, it shows the endingscore. How can I end the games finally, so they disappear in my list?

As far as I know, it is the way the server works. It may happen when one of the players does not go to see the final screen, so the game waits for him to do it. I also find myself in this situation from time to time, but I cannot say that it brings a lot of inconvenience to me. Just wait a week or two and the games will disappear.

Normally, the game is supposed to disappear after all players have seen the ending score.

There was a bug at the server level, and we fixed it a few weeks ago.

However, it seems that the problem still happens in some specific cases. We got a well documented test case yesterday, and we are going to study it. Hopefully we'll be able to go to the bottom of it and fix it for good!

Hi Yann,

My girlfriend, son and myself play games sometimes on two iPads.

We also have the problem that on the iPad that has the two players on it only one sees the endscore, the other then does noet see the game at all anymore. The score then stays "up" for the other two players. Logging in and out on both devices does nothing to alter the situation. Two players see the endscore and the third does not.

We have a lingering game, but I do not know what information I would have to give you to. (I am only used to sending bug reports on the computer not the iPad)

If you know what info you want You can ask me and I will try to provide it.

What I know now is that it was a game between: Mniqi, Yamosar and Jeronimon.

We performed a deep investigation of the test set I mentioned, and we concluded that everything worked as it was supposed to: all players ended up looking at the games outcomes, and the player confirmed that the games had indeed disappeared.

The "problem" is more likely to appear on asynchronous games with many players, since it can take a while for all players to watch the end of the game.

This being said, we are wondering if we could not improve the system by keeping track of who saw the end-of-game screen on an individual basis, and adapt accordingly the list of games in progress for each specific player. Obviously this is significant work on the server side, so I cannot tell if / when we'll do it, but this issue seems to be confusing enough to justify investing engineering time in it.

Yann
