Hotseat Update

Post by spelk » Sun Feb 07, 2010 9:42 pm

Just a comment, I've been running through a few turns with my brother today, hotseating it if you will. Chatting over Skype, and playing a couple of scenarios a piece. And in order to see the new submitted turns, we have to log out of the multiplayer section, and log back in, to get an update of the turn situation. I've not seen this arise previously because I've played a turn, and shut the game down. But by hotseating, we noticed that the multiplayer game status area, just doesn't update until you log out and log back in.

Is this going to be addressed with a periodic check of the multiplayer status on the servers, or has it been deemed not worth the effort, considering how little the game might be hotseated?

Wouldn't it be easier to play hot set by just playing the game locally with both players set as human rather than trying to do it as a multi-player game? Maybe I'm missing something but that wouldn't seem like a much simpler approach for hot seat.

Perhaps I've used the term hotseat incorrectly there, apologies. Perhaps blitzing the turns is a better description. My brother and I are 200 miles apart so it will be difficult to play it side by side.

All you have to do is change from one tab to another, not log in/out. It is somethign we're going to look at though - at some point!

Ah right, thanks for the info Iain. Should make these blitzing sessions a bit more swifter.
