Re: losing connection

Version 3 has a re-written networking system and will be released within the next few days so wait for that and hopefully things will be better.

Re: Version 3 - Ranking Updates

Fair points. Also correspond more with the tournament rules mentioned above. How about then: First: 10 Second: 4 Third: 2 Fourth: 0 This is only a discussion for the monthly rankings. The all-time rankings are carried on from V2, with the same calculations slightly modified (players rakings have les...

Re: Why I won't play with Bleach ever again

Just to point out that there is a problem in V2 (a delay while the game saves the current game to the statistics) which may be causing a problem at the end of network games. Fixed in V3 (coming soon!).

Or it also may be the person quitting of course.

Re: Mystical score

No you probably have 2. It fills at 4 and goes to the next medal at 5.

I presume this is the case - haven't checked the code.

Re: Version 3 - Ranking Updates

Ok the implementation is more or less complete. I've introduced monthly rankings giving 5 points for a win and nothing else. This can be changed later as the months go by and I get some feedback from ye people out there. The old rankings are still there also and the system used for then has not been...

File list of package mono-runtime-dbg in focal of architecture all You can try that, and then you can start the game using "mono Solitaire3D.exe" as far as I can remember.

Re: problem installing freesolitaire3d on lubuntu

That's a warning so does not look like the problem.

Try typing "./Solitaire3D" from the same folder instead of just "Solitaire3D". Also try "./Solitaire3D.exe".

Re: problem installing freesolitaire3d on lubuntu

Linux is tricky as systems can be quite different. Do you think you can run it in the terminal and get the logs here?
Hopefully opening a terminal and dragging the file there then pressing enter in terminal will do that.

Re: system changes

There are updates to the shuffling coming in Hearts V3 (and will be in the next version of Cribbage also). They are not really needed as shuffling was always fully random as I've mentioned, but the updates do give the user more control of the shuffling which is a feature some might like. More detail...

You need to extract the zip file somewhere on your system and then double click the 'Free Solitaire 3D' file you will see there to start the game.

Re: Weird error with Solitaire 3D Lite

Hi Fredrik,
no fix for this as I've not been able to reproduce it myself. I hope it does not happen too often and I suspect (hope) its a problem specific to Gaps.

Re: iPad bug still not fixed

This bug will be addressed in the V3 release, still some months away. Seems to be something specific to iOS 15, but I can't confirm this yet.

In the meantime I'd suggest playing in Portrait mode on the iPad as Riddler suggested, or don't chat.

Re: Crashes in ios15

Try rotating your device first to see if that helps.

If it does not help there's nothing else I can suggest at the moment.

This should be fixed up in the next version, due out in sometime in the first half of 2022 (hopefully).

Your game history and ranking is store online so you just need to sign in to the game using the same network username and all will be fine. Your stats and in-game settings etc. will be lost though unless you copy the user files from your old machine to the new machine. See here for information on ho...
