AI bugs / Re: AI have problem with Chapel
« on: 01 September 2018, 08:05:23 PM »
I just played against the Bot #17887174 on oregon.
It discards several Coppers and Estates, got down to 3 cards, and refused to buy a FREE Copper to build up its hand.
Welcome to the forums! Unfortunately, this is not a bug and is a function of the current AI being oxvmoronic at its core (that is, being innately deficient in "intelligence"). See the section in the sticky post at the top of this sub-forum on "clearly stupid plays". The AI will not buy a free copper, so don't hold your breath on that one. An improved AI is being worked on they say, but it appears at this point they've decided to at least largely finish the project before implementing it instead of rolling out any more improvements a little at a time.

Support / Re: How do I get in touch with Administration?

How can you say "I know the company" when your post clearly indicates that you do not? If you did, you would know that the process here is "blacklist and move on" NOT "name and shame" which is explicitly frowned upon. (I'm just a user, not anyone official, but I've read the forums enough to be certain of what I'm saying here.)

AI bugs / Re: Charm used to buy a Knight
« on: 07 August 2018, 07:20:35 AM »
Not a bug. Consider the wording of the option for gaining a second card with Charm that you chose: "the next time you buy a card this turn, you may also gain a differently named card with the same cost". Remember that in Dominion you buy a card then you gain the card, so when you bought a Knight, not having yet gained it (so it still remained on its pile) you were asked which differently named card with the same cost which could be gained at that time you would like to gain. This is explicitly spelled out in the wiki (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Charm): "The card gained from Charm is gained before gaining the card you bought, which may matter when cards do things when gained." One thing I do that might be of great help to you when you have questions like this is keep a tab open to http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/List_of_Cards_by_Qvist_Rankings which lists all the cards and how they are ranked by the community each year so if you ever have a question you can click to the card's wiki page and likely get your question answered.

AI bugs / Re: unable to play coins???
« on: 31 July 2018, 09:37:45 PM »
When the game gives a long list of game numbers (on my home desktop monitor, on the far lower-right corner of the screen), it's the very top number on that list, right?  That's the number for the current game, yes?
No, the number for the current game is the bottom number on that list. Each time you start a game the new game number (and server) are printed on a new line below the previous one.

Support / Re: Expensions don't work

I'm not an official spokesman or anything, but since I saw you just posted I'm answering so you can learn this quickly: those "lifetime subscriptions" you bought with a previous company were for the "lifetime" of a previous company's version of online Dominion, not for your lifetime. If you look around, there are many threads in this forum discussing this. Sorry, but you actually don't "own" any expansions here - nobody does, we're all just renting. Sorry for the bad news - again, you are not alone here and can find many others in the same boat. HTH

Support / Re: How to Save Table?
« on: 19 April 2018, 06:09:02 PM »
A workaround I use is this: before you leave the site, always start a new game with a bot/bots. When you come back, your table and game will still be there. If you wish to play humans, just resign the bot game -- it will not affect your rating in any way. HTH

General Discussion / Re: Autoplay?
« on: 07 April 2018, 07:10:28 PM »
The default option for Hero is off. The default option when you selected "All convenient" is on, but you can change that as you wish for each card.
I wasn't aware of that (or maybe had forgotten it), so thanks, Markus. Problem solved.

General Discussion / Re: Autoplay?
« on: 07 April 2018, 01:13:22 AM »
My problem occurs when I want a Hero and a Champion (and possibly Warriors, too) but forget to set Hero to Default Keep after getting one and end up getting 2 Champions. I do change Warrior to Default Keep when I know I'm done exchanging them. In the absence of what I suggested I personally wish the default Autoplay option for Hero was Off. Of course I like and usually play Colony games (because of how I learned the game IRL), so Hero has more value to me than someone usually playing Province games which is I'm sure why the options default as they do.

Still hoping for "next level" Autoplay where the first Hero can be automatically exchanged for a Champion, but subsequent Heroes can be automatically be kept as is. There are a few scenarios where one might want to exchange a 2nd Hero for a Champion (Diadem, Wolf Den, not wanting to gain any more treasures) but the vast majority of the time Hero will be a "Default Exchange Once, then Keep" type of card, as will Disciple.

Interface Issues / Re: Kingdom display feature
« on: 06 April 2018, 05:25:32 PM »
I appreciate this new feature also. One tweak I wish would be made is to move where "Kingdom/Play Area" appears above the log. While this feature might be used more now while it's new, in general use "Trash/Log" will be used far, far more often and I personally wish it would be returned to the left end of the clickable options above the log.

Also applies to Off buttons for Changeling and Tournament -- see http://forum.shuffleit.nl/index.php?topic=2781.msg12314#msg12314 -- maybe there are others?

Bug Reports / Re: Changeling gain bug?
« on: 24 January 2018, 04:56:17 PM »
I clicked the Off button.
... you have to click on the radio button beside them to make the change. Your description strongly suggests to me that you cklicked on the text "Off".
Huh? I do know how radio buttons work and did state that I clicked the button.
The autoplay option buttons are a bit bugged, I find I have to click a bit to the right to get them to change.
This probably explains it, thanks. I clicked on the button, not to the right. Will try in the future (although I haven't had any problem with some other cards like Hero). Remember the Tournament 3p crash bug I found where I couldn't change the default option? Maybe the same thing - a UI issue.

As for the Changeling Smart Ask logic, thanks for the explanation. I was obviously taking advantage of the dumb bots that I knew wouldn't make the exchange so I would get a Changeling (still experimenting with this card) and they wouldn't. If I had been able to change the Autoplay option I wouldn't have thought there was a bug.

EDIT: Next game with Changeling I didn't try to buy it, just played with the Autoplay Options and Mic Qsenoch was right on - definitely a UI issue. While the other radio buttons worked normally (clicking anywhere within the button selected that option easily), it took a bunch of tries to get OFF to work with an apparently inconsistent and/or tiny "strike zone".

Bug Reports / Changeling gain bug?
« on: 23 January 2018, 09:13:07 PM »
game #10922391 on oregon - turn 1 I chose to buy messenger then distribute caravan guards before exchanging both my gained cards for changelings - worked fine. Turn 9 I tried same thing but I couldn't exchange the CG for a changeling. Only difference in turn was T1 1st played 4 coppers, T9 foraged an estate then played silver and copper to get to $4, with Changeling as my 5th card. Tried backing up then turning off autoplay (from Smart Ask) on Changeling but nothing happened when I clicked the Off button. There was no cost reduction in the game. Hope I'm not missing something - I don't think so.

Connection Problems / Re: Game froze, can no longer login
« on: 21 January 2018, 09:07:14 PM »
What humcalc216 experienced looks like a problem with the meta-server, which deals with starting/ending the game. If that doesn't respond, the game "isn't told" that it's over now.
Sorry if I was unclear, but I experienced the exact same problem as humcalc216 (e.g. my game didn't end) - I at first thought it must be due to the unusual circumstances of my game which I figured constituted enough of an edge case to not be worth reporting. I was just trying to help him/her reconnect, which appears to have been successful :) ;) ;D . I know the bots still do (very) stupid things :'( . But if it can help I did record the game # (10849083) and the first problem in game functioning I noticed was the Undo button not working - followed by the game not ending after I 3-piled.
