new game room
Posted: Apr 7, 2019, 10:56 AM

There's a new game room that runs in the browser. It's beta at best, but there's inevitable going to be bugs in there and this is the place to report them. If you do, please provide clear instructions on how to reproduce them.

Missing features:
- view a scoring of a Go game before both players have made a pass
- add the AI to the game room, or should it perhaps not?
- styling! lots and lots of styling.

I'll add to this list as I think of new things:

-The game room needs an options menu. Most important is the ability to turn on and off sounds (having an audio cue when you're browsing multiple tabs is very nice; you could also have the tab title change to say "your move").

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

While using my Amazon fire tablet with silk browser I have the following issue: each time I play a stone, the chat/resign area expands to cover most of the board.

It is not ready for mobile devices, no support for touch events has been provided or considered for now. The mobile clients themselves do support live play and chat, so touch support for the new game room is something for the unforeseeable future.

Is the mobile app not an option for the tablet?

I think I tried and ran into browser compatibility issues, but I won't swear to it. Amazon doesn't like google is the impression I get But, I'll give it another whirl later today and see.
