Multiplayer - End Game dialog errors

Post by Stratego (dev) » Fri Nov 20, 2015 8:01 pm

Request on hunting down an error.

There is an error somewhere and please help me find it:
In some of the cases a dialog appears telling you you are lost or some similar end-game message, AND you can not close it because it tells you the AI is working, however not the AI is working, simply trying to send the game not being able for some reason (I assume only multiplayer game cases)

So this case there is a chance that the player “stucks” on that screen not being able to close the game (nor with back button, nor pressing OK) hence the background task will not ever end .

I would fix it, changing the dialog to show the “sending game to server, try again later” dialog where you can press "try again later" - but I don’t know which case this happens.

Cases I can think of:
- You withdraw from a multiplayer game, while enemy still alive
- You withdraw from a multiplayer game, no one else is alive
- You got completely killed by a counterattack (u lost your last unit)
- You kill and enemy and u get a you win dialog, but still tries to send game.
- You withdraw, but an ally AI and enemy AI is still “playing” and you can not quit. (I think this works on a local game when u allied with an AI against other AIs)

So in these cases (maybe other that I did not think of) may be problem with the dialog.

I ask you to hunt down and tell me if you face any problem in these cases.

I know it happens on these cases.

The three I listed above:

- You withdraw from a multiplayer game, while enemy still alive
- You kill and enemy and u get a you win dialog, but still tries to send game.
- You withdraw, but an ally AI and enemy AI is still “playing” and you can not quit. (I think this works on a local game when u allied with an AI against other AIs)
Thanks!

Just happened to me. I conquered a TC from the last enemy, a human player. There was a "you won" dialog and then "please wait to the ai"
