There seems to have been a change in displaying Backgammon-type games with the doubling cube. The status of the match used to show above the game board, but it is no longer there - or is there some setting I have inadvertently changed?
If not, PLEASE can we have the match status returned to display above the game board.

rednaz23: I think the reason is that images are loaded from i.brainking.com which is probably blocked by your employer as well.

6. март 2012, 17:24:20


Curiously, I tried to access BrainKing at work, and my employer has blocked brainking.com due to "gaming" labels on the site.  However, I can easily surpass this by going to brainking.de (or any other number of brainking sites!); however, when I clicked on a game I noticed that the images were not showing up and it appears it may be because the images are stored on the .com site.  Thoughts to surpass this on my end or your end?

Относно: Export Choice
When exporting games like in Backgammon it is possible to add a choice of whether white goes first or black goes first option?

Fencer: Oh, I only saw the "offer draw" link and overlooked the check box appearing after entering a move...

Now when I think of it, I mean I have already used it but have forgotten about it

Относно: draw offer
I wish that offering a draw was programmed differently: a draw is offered together with making a move, then it's the opponent's turn and he/she can decide to accept the offer or make a move instead.

The BK method has two drawbacks: the game, after a draw has been offered, is not on the opponent's "your turn"-list, he/she must read the messages (or is it events?) to see the offer. Second, it is still the offerer's turn, who must care not to forfeit on time, and may accidentaly make a move, thereby cancelling the offer.

rod03801: I totally agree with you when you say that "no time control" shouldn't be allowed for tournaments. I must admit that sometimes I forgot to look at the time control and I could join this kind of tournament by mistake. It's not a problem for me because I'm a rook and I'm not limited in the number of game, but it could be a real problem for someone which makes the same mistake and is bishop or knight.

rod03801: I too find it a bit odd to have a tournament with no time control (especially on a site like this). But in this case it's more a "better sorry than safe"... or should I say if the bad option has been taken, maybe it is possible to "unbad" it a little

7. февруари 2012, 01:24:28
Относно: Re: Offline users
El Cid: Personally, I don't think "no time control" should be allowed for tournaments. Fine for "friendly" games though. That affects only the two people. A tournament affects several other people.

Sure, sure, people can read before signing up, etc, etc, etc, but still, there are liberal enough constraints out there, to not allow tournaments to have this option.

Относно: Offline users
I don't know if this has been asked or not, but could users that do not log in for... a year (i don't know if this is a resonable period or not), have their games automatically terminated (lost, if the other player is active, of drawn if the other player does not log in for some time also, like half a year, to prevent a wining only because he had the luck to stay on the site for one more day), even if there is no time control. It is kind of... ridiculous that some tournaments like this pandemonium (14. Fevereiro 2009, 14:46:59) will never end, just because a user has not logged in for more than 2 years (and probably never will again), I know there is another game between two active players, but I'm sure that something like this would reduce the number of tournaments and therefore the site burden (even if at the first one or two days it would have to calculate winners in many tournaments). Of course, that could be avoided by using a time control when setting up the tournament, but... it is not expected that a player is quitting the site.

I don't know if this is doable, especially the "draw" exception, but if there is already a "grey bar" for users that do not login for more than 30 days, it means that the site already checks when each user logged in for the last time (the fact that it shows in the profile page, does not necessarily means that the site uses that information, but the grey bar does)

Относно: Possible Chess Variant
I see a few ways to make Dark Chess a bit darker.
1.  Allow players to set up their back row pieces any way they prefer before starting the game.
2.  Combine Dark Chess and Screen Chess.
3.  Combine Dark Chess and Crazy Screen Chess.
What do other players think of these options?
I think the first option is very workable.  I am not quite as sure about the other two.

Hey just wondering if any new games are in the pipeline?

How about anti hypergammon (i know anti games don't tend to be peoples favourites) but it should be quite easy to implement and fun to play.

In triple dice poker I believe the bonuses should be doubled(70 in the middle column) and tripled(105 in the right most column) Also if a player is unable to tie or win with best play they should automatically lose. tia

I was wondering if we could propose a common tournament format. A standard single elimination with a losers bracket. So essentially its not single elim its a two loss tournament.

Aganju: Really ? Must have been one of my sleepy days

It would certainly save a lot of time. I just entered a few Tournaments, and it was a pain making sure i entered the correct games in each one

Really, if Fencer was keen on the idea, if he did use the ones in Settings (Game filter), it should be quite simple

MadMonkey: I already described exactly this about four months ago, below. After joining BK, I had the same experience, and still I would like to be able to select quickly 'my set' of games in a tournament.

Относно: Tournament sign-up - Favourites
Fencer, just had a very simple idea to start the year (sshhh don't say a word lol)

Often when i goto enter a Tournament which contains all games, i will only enter the same 40 games for example (ones i would call my Favourites). This can of course be a pain, tedious and often i may miss the odd one by mistake.

So i thought, how about some sort of favourite system ? Then when you goto enter a Tournament, a favourite button could show up somewhere on screen, you click it, and it selects all games you wish to enter (that are available in that Tournament).

So, how to set all this up ??? AND it came to me.....we already have it.....use the Game Filter page from settings. Either:

a) a new section could be created there


b) use the top section 'Select games which you want to show up at the Waiting Games page' as your Favourites as well. (which presumably are your favourites)

Of course, this is just an idea to simplify the signing up process, and the way i see it.

Yourself & others may have a better idea

The rating system is crap! I would love to accept some game with low ranked players, but why should I lose 58 points to lose, or gain one point to win a game of Backgammon? It is utterly ridiculous!. Surely this can be fixed. It;s not chess. How about some reasonable numbers so high ranked players can play with new member without losing HUGE points when they have unlucky streak.

Относно: Hyper Backgammon variation....
1. No Doubles
2. Doubles that send you back rather than foward.
3. you get doubles - your opponent get to make the moves forward or backwords.
3. Instead of 3 pieces, you have 6
Just a thought.

Does the pond automatically go to the next round, when all players have made their move?

Or do the players have to wait until the regular "deadline" is over?

Maybe a small but useful change, in order to vitalize the poker-section of this site:

A red number in the very left column, like the number that shows how many games have to be played - this number may show how many people are currently on the tables...

I spend some minutes from time to time to check out if some of us are playing poker or waiting - just to realize there was nobody. Then i leave this section and forget the idea...

Относно: Re: Ratings
1300. I wasn't sure about that number.

I think the real problem for pgt and others including me is that the BRK formula which works fine for chess does not work well for other games. I wish there were different formulae for different games based on their skill vs luck factor and other factors. Or is there a better one-size-fits-all formula that could be used?
