AutoTrol messages

Post by Gavan » Sun Oct 28, 2007 12:11 am

Why is it on some of my autotrol Good Turn Messages do I get the status of my other games and other times I do not?
Just cause I am paranoid does not mean they are not out to get me.

now that you mentioned it...

I noticed that the first and only time a few days ago (before AT crashed). In one email I saw that trn status of my current games and in the other mal there was nothing.

In fact I didn't care too much about that.

Maybe it's a case you just didn't notice them before. Most of the time, I look to see if I get the message, not what the message says.

Go back and check some of your older "Good TRN" message, you'll should see them there. I went back to February and I had them.

The last 3 good turns I received (one for each game) do not have the status listed.

This is what I am getting.

Simple.

It depends on the version of Host that is running your game. I have quite a few different folders, configs, versions, etc. of Host on the server.

In addition, there are different versions of CheckTrn and ATCheckTrn and they are spread out over the various Host folders.

Thanks at least that makes sense to me now.

One other thought, in the past at least one of these games did give me the status message. Perhaps you have upgraded / downgraded a host version so that is why I have lost these messages?

So, how do you keep it all straight? Don't tell me FM either.

At one point they were all the same, but over time, when there have been players getting lots of rejected turn errors on good TRN Files and such I've fiddled with things to correct them.

So there's a little difference here and there and it's really not noticable to the majority who only play 1 game at a time.

Thanks for the info.

It was not a issues as so much as I was just wondering why the difference.
