unable to delete mp co-op game

Post by skaasz » Mon Mar 16, 2015 1:57 pm

I have an old multiplayer co-op game, Recon In Force, that the other co-op-er gave up on.

It seems that the other player was able to extricate themselves from the game, but I can't advance a turn in the game or surrender, nor have I been able to delete it from my list of of active MP games.

I've also been unable to find it in in any folders to manually delete it from my Mac (looked in Docs\My Games, Library and package contents, but not exactly sure what I'm looking for and nothing obvious to me in the Saves or MP folders). I'm using the Mac desktop version of BA2. Does it need to be cleared on the Slitherine server end?

Thanks for your help, BA2 is a great addition to the BA family of games (any chance some BA2 features my migrate back to BA?).

If the game is on the otherplayer's turn then you should be able to claim it using the button on the bottom left of the game list screen.

Backporting the new features to the original engine is unfortunately impractical :)

Thanks Pip,

Sorry I didn't make it clear that I was able to claim the game and can control both sides of the co-op as it were. But when I try to advance a turn, or surrender, then send it, I get a "failed to send to server" and have to force quit the app to close BA2. So that's why I started digging around in my \Library and the \Saved and Multiplayer folders, and Package Contents of the app itself, to try to find something to clean out on my end.

Otherwise I have connected to the multiplayer server and played turns in other games today (uhhmmm .... while on a coffee break during working hours ...).

Thanks for your help!

Hmmm - it is more likely to be an internal logic issue - we perhaps didn't expect people to give up on Coop games and for them to be claimed perhaps. I understand now - there is nothing stored on your machine that can affect it though :) I will have to dig into it.

Hi Pip,

Still seeing this co-op game (Recon In Force) on my active games list. Still not able to surrender or delete it on my end, can you on yours?
Love the game, Thanks!

I will ask the server team to delete the game. For that they will need the details (the map/opponent name/last time played).

Cheers

I have several games like this that I would be delighted to have cleaned up:
Twin Towns/nobile/20Feb2015
FGH40Tourney - Ambresin/bhacker/24Feb2015
BITCHE_SALIENT/bhacker/01Mar2015
AULDLANGSYNE_104/bhacker/01Mar2015
GSJ44_Tourney_Pegasus/bhacker/20Jul2015
FGH40Tourney - Saint Remy/bhacker/20Jul2015
Maybe some of these were supposed to be run only in BA

Thanks!!

Just do a general search on bhacker, then click on the name link on one of his posts.
