Happy Meeple community / "handshake draw"?
« Last post by Alex B. on 14/03/21, 03:53pm »
Since we have a "white flag" button for resigning a game, could there be installed a "handshake" button such that, if both people click on it, they agree to call the game a draw (similar to chess)?  I have just played a game of Finito where it seemed obvious early on that we would draw, but we had to play it out since neither of us wanted to resign the game.  Maybe not a big deal (Finito is fairly fast) but just something to consider.

Jeff M, thanks for your suggestion to turn off hardware acceleration in my browser. This does seem to have reduced how often i experience the issues in Firefox (which keep returning) - however it did not work at all for Edge.

However, nothing seems to resolve the issue (like Maria W has) with freezes post game where I unable to scroll up or down on the end game screen.

Happy Meeple community / Re: About resignation

A very well-thought-out post by...Happy Meeple. (Feels like there should be a name there, but maybe it was a joint effort. Or is it just posted thus to signify it's official nature?)

I think it would be nice if we could personalize our account by indicating how open to an early resignation we are. Then each player could easily look at someone's profile to check. E.g. Resign whenever you wish/ Please only resign if you really feel you can't win/ Please try to finish the game.

Yes, I did use this feature, and wrote rather a lengthy forum post back then about what a poor experience it was, and it relates exactly to your comment that I've quoted. 

Using the feature results in the games with the 2 minute time limit - very, very difficult to teach anybody anything, even for the new person to figure out how to take their first turn - especially when the timer is running before we've pressed the button to start the game! Certainly not time to teach them anything. Take your eye off the game to look at a message or read any screen text, instructions, anything at all, and suddenly time's up! 

So while I tried to use it as suggested, the time limit erased the benefit. My friend still won't come back here, in fact.  :(

Hi there.  So was anything done to improve this experience and give the user teacher and their guest player students more time to learn and play games?

Hello, number 4) "You get notified when a new message is posted in the inn chat or in a personal chat." doesn't work at me (newest Firefox under Windows). An option in the Settings would be nicely were players can choose wether they want notifications on all new messages or only from friends.

hi,

thanks for your suggestions.
i tried both, unfortunately neither worked - maybe someone has another idea?
it's very annoying to have to try over and again to start a game and not to be able to scroll at the end.

I'm glad you found a solution. 

Here's a potential solution (customized for Firefox) that can be applied to almost all browsers (you just have to find out how to turn off the hardware acceleration in your browser.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hardware-acceleration-and-windowblinds-crash

for edge try this

After having this problem for a couple of weeks now and I think I have found a solution for this (see bottom of post).

It has been driving me crazy. I haven't been able to get Happy Meeple working on Firefox or Edge and as mentioned pereviously I avoid Chrome. I installed Vivaldi all worked OK but was not an ideal workaround as I don't want another browser just for Happy Meeple.

The issues I was experiencing on Firefox (and Edge) were:
1) Clicking on the Market, Castle and Gold icons would open a blank window (which would usually contain the options available in these areas)
2) Some games (especially solo ones like Hex and Raging Bulls) would get stuck on the loading screen with the coloured meeples
3) Freezes post game and unable to scroll up or down on the end game screen (no scroll bar on the right hand side of the window)
4) On the Map I can select to move buildings, but left clicking in an available space does not place them

Solution that worked for me for Firefox:

1. On the left of the box in Firefox where you enter website addresses, there is a shield icon. It was blue on my system to show 'Enhanced Tracking Protection' was on.
2. I clicked on the blue shield and toggled the blue check box to turn off 'Enhanced Tracking Protection'
3. Logged out and restarted browser

Now all is working ok. Can anyone else confirm if this works for them too? It definately does for me (turning Enhanced Tracking Protection back on breaks the site again on my system).

Now if anyone has any ideas for Edge? As Edge is now Blink/Chrome based I would have thought would work ok as Vivaldi & Opera do). I have turned off 'Tracking Prevention' and it doesnt seem to make any difference.

Thanks!
