Be careful with such approaches. You could circumvent auto-excaping this way, so that you open your server to a sql injection vulnerability. Make sure, you are only using this replaced strings for display and not for a db query Wink
Yeah, I do this after I pull it out of the database, within my display section. Thanks for mentioning that, though.  Smiley

I can't upload my game as long as the following URL is invalid on your site:
"http://scarzzurs.dk/?target=HydroHydra"...

Also, while some may argue that two password fields when typing your password is a bit annoying, i think it's comfortable to have it that way...

I'll post more comments when/if i get the game uploaded...

Wow, that was quick :-)

Aight, seems to be working, although i had to go back and resend the info to realize that the game had to be reviewed before it would enter the site. I guess i should have understud this from the text, all i'm trying to say is just that someone else will probably make this mistake aswell... :-)

Btw. with all these comments about the banner (some i agree with), it could be fun if you made a contest for a better banner...

I wanted to store it in DB, but not enough space. I guess it's OK if you submit the screenshot URLs for your game?

I'll repeat my earlier point then - "if you don't have the space to host them then you shouldn't be using the images. Don't waste my bandwidth because you're too cheap to fork out for your own."

Not only is deep-linking impolite, but it makes your website fragile and open to abuse. After a while you'll end up like the old Tome where there were lots of broken images because images outside of your control were deleted, or if someone is feeling particularly evil they'll change the image at the url to be goatse or something similarly unpleasant.

I also agree with EgonOlsen that the "play" link should be much more visible and obvious. I was hunting around for ages before I found it.

I think what kingaschi meant is that if you provide the screenshot url yourself, that it could be regarded as implicit permission that the screenshot is deep-linked to, which is not so impolite.
However, I do agree with you with your other points that deep linking is a bad idea to begin with.

Only 2 images were missing, I was implementing something to resize and put all the images onto the server just before I left the project. Please don't lie, 2 images on a website that has 105 games does not mean "lots of broken images"!

How about a permanent login? I am aware it's quite annoying if you have your comment gone...

In regards to image linking. I am not actually displaying the linked images on the tome (they rather behave like a regular link), so that should be OK?

And in regards to the "Play" button being to small (and other stuff), give me some more time to fix.

... and we have 10 games now  Grin

Permanent login is a very good idea. You have that check box already, but it seems to log you out very quickly.

No. Some of you guys and myself went ahead started to vote. The rating is displayed after 5 votes (exception the ranking on the side).

Although I agree that the header image is insanely complex, I have to say that most of the site looks very nice, and that most of the information is presented in a clear way to the public. I have submitted my game, hope it will get accepted Smiley

Is there a way that you can track times people have played a game? I'm curious.

Got it! I will rework the header (in time). Also, right now there is no tracking of how many times people clicked on the "Play" link. I put it onto the to do list.

You need to stop making this public.  You have a disagreement with kingaschi you can take it up with him privately.  Don't start hijacking threads and try to tarnish what is being done.  It has all been argued before and no one wants to hear it anymore.

Hi!

I'm sorry, I don't want to annoy anyone. I tested the game xpDiplomacy 4.1 a few minutes ago and it doesn't work under Linux. I get the following exception:

java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
   at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
   at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:39)

   at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.<clinit>(Unknown Source)
   at diplomacy.gui.GameLauncher.main(GameLauncher.java:13)
   ... 9 more

I submitted a bug report on sourceforge.net for this project. This game is looking for swt-win32 that can't be found under Linux of course. Then, please could you update the list of supported operating systems by this this game?

I think it is very easy to fix, I looked at the JNLP file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- JNLP File for xpDiplomacy -->

<jnlp spec="1.0+" codebase="http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~gurdotan/" href="xpDiplomacy.jnlp">

      <j2se version="1.6" />
   </resources>
   <application-desc main-class="diplomacy.gui.GameLauncher" />
</jnlp>

As you can see, nothing allows to deploy SWT in this file. An example of JNLP file to deploy SWT under Windows and Linux at least can be found on the website of IBM.

I assume that the game installation under Windows and Mac with this JNLP file doesn't work but I can't prove it as my testers are on holidays unlike me and I don't own any Windows or Mac. Best regards.

But if you had Mac OS X 10.5 software update 1 at least, you could use Java 1.6.

Please could you check if it works under Windows without installing SWT separately? Maybe you have already installed it on your machine.
