Thanks!

It looks like it is working correctly now. I had to include a line in the invitation form with the settings value. Once I did that, the invitation I sent to myself was for the correct settings file.


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2022-02-17 UTC

No, actually it does not. It works well when choosing the normal link. But when choosing the deprecated link, after the challenge is made, when one tries to accept the game reverts to regular chess (the default one).


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2022-02-17 UTC

Thanks, Fergus! It now works as intended.


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2022-02-17 UTC

Put the name of the settings file you want to use in the Redirect field for the deprecated preset. Then, when someone tries to invite someone to play with the deprecated preset, the new one will be used instead.


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2022-02-17 UTC

That is probably the case. How do I fix that? It goes the same for apothecary chess modern.


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2022-02-16 UTC

Perhaps he was just using the list of all games, where it's not clear at all which version is the right one.

That makes sense. This is why you should forward invitations from a deprecated preset to the official preset.

I don't use a Mac, though I don't think the computer one is using would make a difference. The preset for this page is

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Apothecary+Chess-Modern&settings=ApothecaryChess-Modern

The preset for the open invitation Richard Milner made and the games he is playing is this:

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Apothecary+Chess-Modern&settings=ApothecaryChess-Modern

These are the same. So, I don't know what the problem is.

@Fergus, @Richard Milner - if you may help

A few days ago Richard Milner issued some apothecary chess classic challenges that have shown an older attempt of mine (with the brouhaha squares in the corner). This should not have happened so I had asked around. Jean-Louis found out that on Mac there was button that was leading to the wrong preset (that preset does actually exist but the game page shows something else). I had used a mac and deleted a small part of the code written in the page in the apothecary chess classic page code, and I had seen that button missing. I do not know what happens now, but I'm not seeing the code anymore but Richard Milner managed to make a wrong challenge again. I still do not know what he did. Fergus, have you any idea about what is going on?

Ok, Thanks Very Much


Jean-Louis Cazaux wrote on 2022-02-10 UTC

Aurelian, I saw that yesterday. I know how I did: When I look on your preset page on Safari (with a McBook), if I click on the diagram, I get the nominal preset. But if I look under the diagram there is the sentence "Apothecary Chess - Classic is an Grand Chess and Omega Chess inspired large board variant that features the joker who imitates the last moved enemy piece at every turn, along with the capablanca compounds and two new minor pieces of which one (the siege elephant) is specific only to this game at the time of the game's creation." This sentence is preceded by a small blue square with a question mark ?, like an image which doesn't show. If I right-click on it and select "show in an other page", I get the diagram with the Brouhaha squares in the corners in a different preset.

Hope this helps


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2022-02-10 UTC

If there is something different from the article in the initial position! Something like the brouhaha squares being in the corner!


Jean-Louis Cazaux wrote on 2022-02-10 UTC

I don't see what would be abnormal


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2022-02-10 UTC

Anyone?


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2022-02-09 UTC

To me this preset is ok, but someone made a challenge featuring an older preset. May someone check if the preset is the proper one please?


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2020-10-03 UTC

Fixed!


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2020-10-03 UTC

Oh, yes! I'll fix it imediatly!


Greg Strong wrote on 2020-10-02 UTC

When I click on the image, it brings up a preset that has the brouhaha squares in the corners. That is old, isn't it?


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2020-10-02 UTC

I have made the picture with the appropriate link. The same for my other game!


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2020-10-02 UTC

Yes, sure! I'll do it this evening!...


Greg Strong wrote on 2020-10-01 UTC

Hi Aurelian,

I assume this all matches what is on the game page for this game? We generally do not repeat all of that on the game courier preset page. I admit, having a game page and a GC preset page is somewhat redundant, but duplicating the description on both would be even more redundant. Is it ok if I reduce this to a link to the preset and a preview picture?


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2020-09-30 UTC

@the editors, May someone review this page, please!


Aurelian Florea wrote on 2020-08-31 UTC

Thanks, Fergus!
