Beta16 Disconnects or Coincidence? Sat, 29 January 2011 06:30
I've played at least 3 games today on Beta16 where my opponent was constantly getting disconnected. Multiple times throughout the game. Could this really be a coincidence where I'm facing a rash of people with connections issues at the same time as Beta16 emerges or something's amiss?
Meanwhile I've had no disconnect issues. It's just very disconcerting because I can't really tell if I'm playing a bot or a human.

Probably just connection issues.
I am on a wireless connection and if it goes shady, I can get disconnected several times during a scenario. I usually tell my opponent I have problems and stop playing after hopefully finishing the scenario. If I can't finish the scenario due to connection issues, I try to send a PM to my opponent.

I had no "connection problems" whatsoever until last night. While playing with Oberleutnant Sseremet I have been thrown out of the game every minute or so. While he was constantly in the game, I was kicked into the game lobby with only scenarios listed, player list on the right empty. To get back into the game I had to exit the game and turn it on again just to be back for 30 secs and then get thrown out again. No connection problem, obvious bug if you ask me...

I played my first expert mode scenario today and my opponent got disconnected. This is the first time in 120 some odd games where there was a disconnect. He has also played a lot of games so I don't think he would normally have problems. This was his first expert mode game too. How do you know if it's a bug or just a connection problem? How do you do a bug report on a disconnected game? Thanks.

It happened to me last evening (I didn't have downloaded the last version when it occurred).
Seems to work correctly now.

Remember folks, this is still BETA... we are looking for bugs. You should be trying to break it... and when you do, try to recreate it if possible. Send in the bug Reports with as much detail as you can.

He was certainly still playing with the beta15. We forgot to declare the protocol as incompatible between the two versions and some people don't upgrade if they're not forced to do so.
