Problem with online games
« on: July 12, 2020, 08:17:08 AM »
For the last couple or three months, we have been unable to complete a game using the online server.

I am using the latest, 4.6.1.  This also occurred with the previous version, but I don't recall the version number of that.

What happens is that the connection falls offline with a "connection lost" error.  Sometimes, it comes back and you can resume play.  Other times, it just ends the game.

This has been happening when the two of us are playing here at home, and it has been happening when playing friends in another city.  It does not seem to matter who starts the game.

This has been consistent - we have not been able to finish a game online for a while.

This is the Java on my machine:
C:\Users\rfielder>java -version
java version "1.8.0_251"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_251-b08)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.251-b08, mixed mode)

Has anyone else encountered this?

It happened to me twice last Friday. It was my turn and after the glitch I could continue after the reconnection. I had never failed before until that day. We had a third reconnection without major issues.

Workaround we used: I saved the game, then I reloaded the game as a local game and continued the game qhile sharing my screen over Skype.

The only glitch we notoced is that players swapped color and names: the first player was playing purple and the second green. After realing the game, the first player was green with Purple's name and scoring, and the second player was purple with Green's name and scoring.
