JCZ V4.01 Questions
« on: December 13, 2017, 11:01:20 AM »
I have noticed two other behaviours of V4.0.1 that are different than with V3.  I have not seen these documented- but I may have missed something.

First, it seems to have a timeout.  If I leave it running but with no game active, it goes away after a while. Doies JCZ have a timer that closes the application after a given period of time?  If so, do we have any control over this?

Second, when you ended a game, you had the option of clicking a button that said "Play again".  With V3, that took you to the game setup screen, with the same players and the same options selected.  With V4, you are taken to the same screen, but everything is cleared - no players, no options selected.

Is this intention?  Do we have any control over this?  I often play against the computer, and when  I click "Play Again", I would like the same game to be ready to start.

1. this is probably connected to you previous post. I susspect JavaWebsocket library. It's possible that it adds some default timeout which wasn't present in old version.

2. That is bug.

Hello Farin,

First of all my deepest respect for the huge work you do to let us enjoy our beloved game even online!

I noticed a difference in the working of the screen with the game setup.  It's not that big of a deal but i thought...what the heck...I'll let Farin know:
when you setup a (solo) game and in the end, you want to replay, it doesn't remember the latest game setup anymore.  Instead, it starts again with a screen with nothing selected.
