The database seems to be working now. I have adjusted the time controls for games to give ten extra days to make up for the downtime.


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-12-27 UTC

I got the invitation you sent in my email, but not the one I sent. Both are showing up on the group page, though.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-12-27 UTC

Looks good Fergus.

I just sent a public invitation and received the email from the google group.

Thanks Jose

PS. Did you get the invitation for the game I setup? I didn't get the invitation for the game you had sent, but my membership to the group had not been accepted yet.

I have now updated Game Courier to use the cvgameroom at Google Groups. No one is automatically signed up for this. If you want to get emails about open invitations, you should sign up. I tried sending an invitation to it. I have not yet received it in my email yet, but I have seen it show up in the Google Group. So it may just be a matter of time.


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-12-26 UTC

Did you get to create the new email group at GoogleGroups?

I just created it now. I'll do something more with it tomorrow. In the meantime, you can sign up for it.

Hi Fergus,

Did you get to create the new email group at GoogleGroups?

[email protected]

The [email protected] no longer works, as Yahoo decommissioned that service on December 15th.

Cheers.

Jose

Hello, Having tried the Metamachy preset with a personal invitation to myself, when I click "... to move" for the first move, I have the message "The invitation to play this game hasn't been accepted yet." and it is impossible to do a move, even after going back to the menu and returning to the game log. Is it that? Maybe you can try to send an open invitation, that your opponent could accept. I seem to remember that there could have been issues with personal invitations in GC.

Can someone help us? We try to play Metamachy with Numerist, I have the black pieces. When I click on one of the 4 which are in the center of the board, it activates (with a framed square) the 4 squares in the center of my lines, but how to move the piece in those squares? I've tried to click, to hold and drop the piece, nothing works. I've tried with Safari and with Firefox. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-17 UTC

Yes Fergus.

The email group address would look like this:

[email protected]


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-10-16 UTC

I just created a test list with two of my email addresses, and sent a test message to my new list.

Can you post a message to it by sending email to the group?


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-16 UTC

Fergus,

Yes it works too as the Yahoo Mailing lists.

I just created a test list with two of my email addresses, and sent a test message to my new list.

Got the test email on both of my email inboxes.


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-10-16 UTC

Google Groups is an alternative.

Isn't that just a web-based continuation of Usenet? Do Google groups work as mailing lists like Yahoo! groups did?


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-16 UTC

Fergus,

Google Groups is an alternative.

groups.google.com


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-10-15 UTC

are you aware?

I was not. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

As of December 15 we will need a new mailing list for open invitations from Game Courier.

Does anyone know of any viable alternatives? I do not want to use the chessvariants.com server for this.

I have accepted these days 2 challenges as white and I got black (as the default). One was shako and the other is opulent chess. Is this a problem of mine or of the website?


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-08-07 UTC

Moving by mouse or tap is now enabled again. Since the NAME and ID values on the input field are different, I got confused and made them the same. I have now restored the correct ID.


H. G. Muller wrote on 2020-08-07 UTC

Is there a GAME code command for setting the board to a given FEN code? I am currently looking into the issue of handling shuffle games. But because potentially every square on the board could be involved in a shuffle, it seems a good idea to store the entire board in a constant, like setconst startshuffle fencode; . The trick is to set up the board from the retreived constant, if that existed.

[Edit] Or would it be better to copy and restore the $space system variable, though

setconst startshuffle $space;
setsystem space const startshuffle;

?

[Edit2] Well, the latter seems to work, so I suppose I can stick to that. But something else: I tried shuffle #a; , where a is an array of coordinates. But that doesn't do anything. Apparently shuffle wants to have the list of coordinates it should shuffle as literals. I could not think of any better way than joining all array elements in a for-next loop into a space-separated text string, append that to the string "shuffle", and apply eval to it. Isn't there really any simpler way to do that?


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-08-07 UTC

As far as I can tell, the inability to move with the mouse is unrelated to making legal moves available in autocomplete. I turned it off, but it didn't fix the problem. So, I turned it back on. I will look into this further after breakfast.


dax00 wrote on 2020-08-07 UTC

That is an improvement. I like how it assumes the move is complete after a non-capturing first step. I also like the "pass" button. Yes, a pre-selected lion would be an improvement.


H. G. Muller wrote on 2020-08-07 UTC

How do you like the method for entering Lion moves as it is used here? And would you consider it an improvement if the screen for the second leg appeared with the Lion already pre-selected, so that you would immediately see its final destinations highlighted, rather than having to click it again for that?


dax00 wrote on 2020-08-07 UTC

Yeah, I liked how it was before better. The dropdown menu of legal moves is a good addition, so long as it doesn't interfere with a player's ability to click and move as one would normally do. I could see myself using the dropdown menu to enter lion moves (chu shogi) in the future, even considering the time it would take to scroll through 100+ legal moves.


wdtr2 wrote on 2020-08-07 UTC

The same is true for me also. I think there was a tweak to the base code related to legal moves. When you mouse click your piece in the past a gray square came up. This does not occur anymore.
