- Fixed registration bug, caused by upgrade to new jdbc drivers.
- Fixed bug in storing finished games to db when one player is booted and the other player resigns.
- Minor changes to tournament code to allow admins to mark players as forfeiting a round AND/OR as dropping out of tournament.
- Redid the tournament "restrictions" code to make it easier for admins. Now we can create tournaments and decide whether to restrict to established players or not with a simple radio button.

- Fixed bug where player swaps after games weren't going to all players, just to players in the table. Caused players in main room to see wrong players.
- Fixed bug where in tournaments, main room would list table as playing games with 20/0 timers, instead of 1/5 or whatever the tournament specified.
- Fixed bug looking up games from speed tournaments using links on tournament pages.
- Upgraded mysql jdbc library to latest version.
- Order completed tournaments on tournaments page by completion date.
- Fixed NPE bug with main room table display and JDK1.5.

Changelog - 2.31.8.2
Posted: May 23, 2005, 6:38 PM

Release 2.31.8.2 - 5/23/2005
- Improved responsiveness of system I hope by creating copy of database for game history searches. If you've played in a speed tournament lately you might have noticed that sometimes it takes a long time to store the game and update the tournament results. This happens because of the way mysql locks tables, when someone does a slow games history search it actually locks up the system temporarily (no games can be stored in db). I've actually also noticed other times when the game server is unresponsive for quite a few seconds, I believe it traces back to this issue as well.

So the solution I'm using is to maintain a complete read-only copy of the database for use by game history searches. That way you can still get real-time search results (or nearly real-time, there may be a few second delay), and the game server should be way more responsive.

[Update 5/24/2005] Mysql replication was not configured quite correctly so the games history stopped showing games played after yesterday morning. That has been fixed now.

Uhoh, that's not good. It calls some javascript that opens up a new window. I didn't think a popup blocker would stop this (since you are clicking a link to make it happen).

For now you can access the game room with this link:

A development idea
Posted: Aug 13, 2005, 6:28 AM

The messaging feature is really cool. Thanks for that. One thing, would it be possible to keep a list of sent messages....so when I am sending out tournament updates I know who I already sent them to?

Also, does the message player link send an email to the person? or is it just a message here on the server?

Keeping sent messages is certainly possible. I don't really want to implement a full email client though

Right now it does NOT send out the message via email, but I do plan on adding an option to allow messages you receive at your DSG message box to be sent to your email address. I could also add an option to have it send a copy to the SENDER's email address. That way you could keep a copy of messages you sent in whatever email program you use now.
