It's strange, I've had this problem with Sergey, too, but only in Shatranji.  I'm playing a number of other games with him and they're all fine.  But in our Shatranji game he kept going back again and again when I would make a nasty drop.  Eventually he resigned.  I suspect he doesn't understand the drop rules.

I'll see if my wife is interested in translating something about drops, or maybe the Shatranji page.  (She's fluent in Russian but not in Chess variants...)

Carlos was jumping the gun about him. He was using translated pages, and these weren't sending the correct submit values to Game Courier. I recommended that he use English pages, and in the meantime, I fixed the problem with translated pages, so that they would work too.

Okay Fergus, I replayed my move (at the point before I dropped a captured pawn on b7). If it happens again I'll be tempted to just delete all my games that I have with this player, depite that I think I'm doing fine in all of them. Remember, he is the one Carlos complained about earlier.

He might have done it accidentally, since he repeated the same move.

I don't understand what happened in the following game log. It looks like my opponent might have illegally taken back some moves:

That was due to a coding mistake I made yesterday. I replaced the count function with is_array($op1) && count($op1) instead of is_array($op1) ? count($op1) : 0, and the result was that the actual count was replaced with 1 whenever it was positive. I fixed that, corrected your log and its database entries, fixed the problem with posting here, and moved your comments from where you originally made them.

Still cannot comment in the Game Logs thread. This time an error declared me winner in a game I didn't move in:

That may have happened when the typo I made introduced a bug in the code. I corrected the results for this game in the log and the database.

I cannot post in the Game Courier Logs thread for some reason. In the following game log my opponent played a move and did not checkmate, yet he was declared the winner. The preset was rules enforcing:

There was a typo in my last change to Game Courier. Fixing that fixed the problem.

Or maybe it's a larger problem.  CwDA is doing this as well:

I have a bug with Gross Chess.  This log is incorrectly calling a stalemate.  (It didn't actually end the game, but it won't let me move either.)


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2018-09-10 UTC

Okay, that's all fixed. I was rewriting the code without the use of a deprecated feature, and I didn't quite get it right last night.

Another logfile missing or something misspelled message, this time for a Chess with Different Armies game:

I'm having trouble playing a game of Storm the Ivory Tower. When I click on my name (trying to start the process of playing a move) I get an error message saying that the logfile is missing or else something is misspelled:

This preset now uses the new code for identifying check, checkmate, and stalemate. Let me know of any problems with it.

ILLEGAL: p g9-g7; on turn 2:

There was no p on g9. It is an empty space.

Go back with your browser's BACK button, reload the page, and try again.

My move in the party. I can not make a move. No button to make a move. Writes an error. How can I make a move in the party? Help

Do you mean in your current Game Courier game?  It doesn't appear to be your turn yet.

You should request aid in just one place; this one seems the most reasonable, so I'll remove your other comments.

(By the way, I'm relying on Google translate for your messages, so apologies if I misunderstand.)

Как в игре сделать ход? Я не могу сделать ход. Не работает кнопка отправить ход

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2018-08-02 UTC

It's not showing up as active on the Logs page. It says you won.

Jose Carrillo wrote on 2018-08-02 UTC


My opponent ran out of time in this game: 


However the game is still showing active in the Game Courier Game Logs page.

Can you fix the status of this game as the game is completed?

Is there something I need to do to the preset to prevent thiscondition from happening? 


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2018-07-14 UTC

I renamed the backup to a php file, and it is currently your opponent's turn. Once he moves, the database entry will be recreated, and it will show up on the logs page again. Since it is not showing up there now, inform your opponent that he has to repeat his last move for the game to continue, and send him a link to the log.

Jose Carrillo wrote on 2018-07-14 UTC


Can you please restore the backup?
