Quote from sinanju :Maybe put an extra tab on the top of the forum page for 'Leagues'?

This is in the works and I'm aiming to introduce the first version very soon.

Quote from Gutholz :Use LFS twitter account, might stop some worries and speculations.

You are right - we should have used it, but tbh i've just completely forgotten about it.

NDR.Kyoto 250

Think it happend to people who yesterday were online at the time?
For some players it has updated now, maybe because they were online in meantime. I was not online yet so it still stays..

ah hm yes, indeed if you go online it'll be 'fixed'. The stats that were generated during the downtime (going offline is a stat as well) have been lost unfortunately.
But i'll have look at fixing it on my end.

Our switch died which led to instable connectivity all day (it wasn't optimal for a few weeks now actually). Tonight after a reset it didn't work at all anymore.
I've installed a temporary switch now, and everything should be back to normal. There will be some planned downtime further down the road to replace the loaner with a permanent one.

Did you do that for both TCP and UDP?

So here is the original, some of you old members may remember:

Look at the beginning (clockticking) and the end (get up from sleep - spelling dream)
This is really cheeky, isn't it?

;-)

Well well - joking - ehm, not. Heh.
Btw - hello again ;-)

Hi again Mr Cool! Smile

I totally remember, yes.

You probably still have to animate the time property of the ReplayControl layer.
Check the following video, at 2:00 : https://www.lfs.net/LFSRecord/vids/5_Using_Replays.mp4
There I explain how to do just that.

Is this still happening?

Should be ok now on IE.
Victor

There you go.
You could manually resize the thing as well though, unless you use some odd browser that doesn't support that feature.

It also remembers text now. So if you write something, leave and come back, the text is still there.

Hm yes strange it was stuck somehow. Restarted - seems to be working again.

I don't have one :/
It's something Scawen would have to generate I guess.

But the characters and their codepages are all listed here :

The first bunch of arrows for example are here :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/gg638593

But those pages are too many if you want to just search for a character, so I'm not sure they are even useful.

Actually, i think you can, if you use the correct bytes.
←↑→↓↔↕↖↗↘↙
Those arrows are present in the LFS font.
The url encoded LFS string for those arrows is :
%5EJ%81%A9%81%AA%81%A8%81%AB%5EK%A1%EA%A2%D5%A2%D8%A2%D6%A2%D9%A2%D7
It's url encoded because otherwise a lot of characters would be messed up in utf8 conversion (the forum uses utf8).
So decode that and you'll get the literal LFS string that you could try in your insim app.

Or try one arrow .. I think that's %5EJ%81%A9 for the first one.
You can already see it selects the japanese codepage (%5EJ = ^J) and then there are two bytes for the character (0x81 0xA9).

Hope that helps. Thought it was interesting Smile

yeps. I've fixed it in my dev version. Will put it live soon enough, but i wanna test a bit more.
Thanks for the report.

I'm sorry, but I've no idea. I'm not really familiar with services in windows :/

I can log client messages and commands if needed. One would just need to request logging and tell me the host name as I'll not be logging everything (I'm not an intelligence agency, 'ey).
I do log all client connections and that helped Fel's issue.

No.

I'm guessing that LFS started but then returns an error relating to not being able to find files it needs anb then waits until you press a key. But you may not see that message if DCon.exe is hidden. It could explain why you see it in your list of processes, but cannot join it.
This error could be caused by LFS not knowing its working directory when it's started via alternate means. Check if you can explicitely set the working directly to the LFS path, in the startup command.
You could double check by reading the LFS log files. If there's nothing at all, it's surely a wrong working directory. Otherwise you may see the error listed in the logs.

For reference, this has been handled via PM.
