List of Bugs
 
Since this board is becoming chaotic, I ask you to report bugs into this topic.
It's impossible to manage all those multiple threads...

Tulac 21-11-2007 10:11 AM

Every time I post I have to wait for a moderator to approve my posts, and so it appears on the site hours after I post it, which makes this forum practically unusable to me.

The Fifth Horseman 21-11-2007 10:23 AM

The forum no longer allows to display only open/locked/moved/participated/hot topics. It was a very convenient thing to have.

Japo 21-11-2007 10:26 AM

Is this just for bugs or also for missing features etc.?

nedela 21-11-2007 10:56 AM

site does not reset the password propperly - email is not sent to receipient (same for me and my bro). we believe this is due to the fact that in previous forums we had the option to receive email from other persons disabeled.


new registration sends e-mail instantly.

nedela 21-11-2007 10:58 AM

ok i just noticed there is no option to edit my previous message.

Japo 21-11-2007 11:10 AM

I liked the "View New Posts" button and it's apparently gone. :(

When replying and so you're taken to an apparently blank page and you must scroll up to see anything. EDIT: This happens when navigating the forum within the site's frame, but not when doing it directly (swtiching bookmark now).

_r.u.s.s. 21-11-2007 11:34 AM

well, at first, "high students" could at least fix proper syntax -_-

Mighty Midget 21-11-2007 11:42 AM

A small thing, but an annoying little bugger that makes it hard to stay updated on new posts:
The "topic read" cookies aren't working. If I jump straight from a topic and out to the main forum, the topic is still marked as unread, and sometimes when I log out and back in, previously read topics are now marked as unread again.

2) The frames in the topics are not working properly. When jumping to last unread post, the topic is stuck in it's frame and won't show the top with the forum tree links. I have to press the middle mouse button and move it, then I get the whole topic page.

Paco 21-11-2007 11:42 AM

http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8...ionspr1.th.png

That would benefits everyone. to search where the Control-Central or pm is too complicated.

One More Thing: Could it too make it so that if i clicks on a Topic. it automatic leads to least Posts. and it i hits the return-Button it return to the previous position and not scrolled down. (that is annoying).

Are you sure that's not your browser using a cached version of the page when hitting the Back button? I think Firefox v2 started to work that way whereas FF1 didn't, because it results in way faster browsing. To be sure refresh the page.

Mighty Midget 21-11-2007 11:53 AM

When clicking on any of the member names in the forum, I'm taken to their site profiles, even though the second (old style) control panel suggests there should be a forum profile... somewhere.

Paco 21-11-2007 11:55 AM

http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/9...downsh6.th.png

i often need to scroll down to find it. it is messed up. not only there but on some page too.

http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/7...vertqf4.th.png

otherwise you wasted a lot of space.

there is probably more, but i think i wait a bit until most things are fixed...

poor Kosta. ^^

Edit: some Avatars are left and other right but none are central placed.

haha, try coding a site and your head is gonna blow while you try to optimise something for all the browsers. and IE btw ignores lots of w3c standarts and does the things in it's way

Frodo 21-11-2007 01:17 PM

I liked having the 'Find Posts by......', it was handy having that. But it seems to have gone now. :cool:

_r.u.s.s. 21-11-2007 01:22 PM

i agree with frodo, and for some things it was essencial.

btw, now it gives me the main page in german by default o_O . i have to go the abandonia.com/en for real version of abandonia

also: when working in this god forsaken frames, sometimes it just doesn't show the scrollbar (if it even logs you in via durpal at first, of course, cause sometimes it just doesn't)

JudgeDeadd 21-11-2007 01:23 PM

The "not a member yet? register here! forgot your password? reset here!" text at the top of the page is a bit too long and forces a horizontal scrollbar to appears. Horizontal scrollbars are annoying.

Hi!
I like the new look of the site ... but I've noticed that the options "site navigation" and "featured games" are placed too much on the right side of the box resulting on falling out of it a little. Not a big deal but kind of annoying for a perfectionits like me :P

Cheers!:D

Dave 21-11-2007 06:14 PM

Linux (Ubuntu 5.10) and Xp, I have the same problem with both :confused:
Didn't try with Vista.

Data 21-11-2007 06:15 PM

i have it as well and i run linux.

Japo 21-11-2007 06:17 PM

OK when I browse the forum from the site using the frame (eew) the pages are scrolled away. But when I browse the forum directly with no frames, the forum forgets my logging.

Oh and I deleted my avatar (because pixel art was not meant to be resized), and it doesn't show in my profile page (as intended), but it's not gone from my posts.

Eagle of Fire 21-11-2007 08:46 PM

First... The "your post need to be verified by a moderator" thing make it pretty pointless to post in this forum now. And I seem to have noticed that a few new members don't have that problem. Or maybe it's only me?

Second, almost everytime I enter a page I need to scroll up to the beginning of the page because it's bent on either fowarding me to the bottom of the page or the middle. For no good reason I can think of.

Tulac 21-11-2007 10:21 PM

Can you guys at least tell me if anyone else has the problem of having their every post checked by a moderator? It's really really really really annoying! :mad:

Sebatianos 22-11-2007 06:53 AM

The one I hate the most is the reply feature.

When I press reply the text window will be at the top, but I will be shown the last post - so I have to scroll all the way up to start typing (unless I use fast reply, which I really don't like).

Can you be moved up to the reply window by default?

Mighty Midget 22-11-2007 07:46 AM

Tree structure in the games section on the "main site" (yeah, I know that has changed too):

I looked up the first genre, "Action", then the first game there, "A Nightmare...."
, then clicked the "boxshots", then clicked the "A Nightmare..." link above. That took me to "Featured Games". Another test, but this time I clicked on "action" ("games" the third time) and it took me to an empty game page.

redavatar 22-11-2007 07:49 AM

The site and forum won't work in IE and Opera right now it seems - half the screen is cut off - I don't even see the submit button!

Dave 22-11-2007 09:21 AM

Is there a way to fix moderator powers?
I wrote a little list on Mod permission.


Edit: oh, I've seen your answered only now, thanks :)

Ah thanks Data, at least one bug is fixed now. :D

Now I chose another avatar and it shows in my profile but my posts still show the first I uploaded, which is crappy because it's resized from the original 100x100 to the current limit 85x85. (Anyway Kosta said he would raise the limit up to the old 100x100.)

Seems I'm stuck with the first avatar I selected. Anyone else tried to change his?

Still no go. Whatever image I select shows all right in my profile, but my posts are stuck with the first one.

Why do you need to click on a button to activate quick reply?

_r.u.s.s. 23-11-2007 06:49 PM

that's of course not a bug but i mind it too

_r.u.s.s. 23-11-2007 07:51 PM

going to the traffic department review site redirects you to something on alpha abandonia, to which you need a login http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/34...ment+2192.html

So9 23-11-2007 08:00 PM

my bug list
 
here's a list of bugs i found :
(debian4 ff2)

-game filter gives no results (try rpg and theme fantasy)
-quick reply don't accept anything (even after clicking at the posts quickreply)
-no way to attach files to a post
-clicking on "services" leads to http://30455.spreadshirt.net/en/DE/S...t%5D=Abandonia :-(
-albion (http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/428/Albion.html) opens an additional login-form (htaccess ?)
-no images in signature ?

edit :
the additional loginbox is a mp3player "artifact"
look at http://alpha.abandonia.com/themes/abandonia/radio.gif

Dave 23-11-2007 08:02 PM

my account > edit has no form for a signature

i found it :
-open a thread
-scroll down
-select "user control panel" from forum jump

wtf ?

Dave 23-11-2007 08:10 PM

It's quite hidden, you have to enter into a forum -> Forum Jump -> User Control Panel.
I hope they will insert a shorcut.

_r.u.s.s. 23-11-2007 08:14 PM

forum jump is at the bottom of the page.

btw. the frame thing sucks f5(=reload) warps you to the forumstart

So9 23-11-2007 08:30 PM

another one
 
another bug :

-click on search on top of the page => a search form appears
-move the mouse to thread tools/Search this thread etc. and all the other overlays appear as well

on debian4/ff2 they never disappear! only a reload fixes this

dosraider 23-11-2007 09:50 PM

rsdworker 23-11-2007 11:29 PM

bug: game filters don't work as planned because i tried to find the games = for example horror > first person > submit then results are returned as none - this regardless which section are you in - it likely affects all

_r.u.s.s. 23-11-2007 11:54 PM

the game filter isn't working yet and kosta knows about this- the site is still beta

JudgeDeadd 24-11-2007 04:12 AM

1. Open the forum in a frame (so that the logo and the ugly white menu is at the top.)
2. Write a new post somewhere.
3. Click "Edit".
4. Click "Save".
5. Contemplate.

Not sure if you can consider that a bug, but the board don't automatically update on your signature anymore. I'm guessing it's the same about avatars.

it's frames=/ unless kosta changes whole forums layout there is nothing you can do about it (well you could try different browser)

but you can always go to www.abandonia.com/vbullet

Data 24-11-2007 11:49 AM

Paco restoring the full vbulletin header is unlikely.
Afterall the idea of abandonia is that it´s profiles are used throughout the whole site instead of just the forum. For that reason the pms of the forum won´t come back after the problems of it are fixed and were the pms for the whole site introduced.

This is a big step forward, in about 3 days we passed from 11880 to 12,466 members.
I would say that the missing features are a small price to be paid, however most of them will soon be reinserted.

Tulac 24-11-2007 01:54 PM

Is it possible to add the classic control panel to the top bar? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Mighty Midget 24-11-2007 01:57 PM

Right now, you need to go to a thread, then "jump" to the control panel, but yeah, the old control panel would be good to have up there where everyone can find it.

Question: Will the "forum profile" be viewable in the future?

_r.u.s.s. 24-11-2007 02:42 PM

ok, now i'm pissed. the "forum is read" is completely screwed. i have went through the last same topics at least 3 times and after reloading abandonia after some time it shows that forum is unread again. and it sometimes just chooses which ones i read and which ones i don't. sometimes you have to click to the unread forum to see that nothing is unread in there and then when you come back, only then it marks that it's read. and it behaves just randomly it seems. (yes i refresh, i don't press back button only)

edit: and after reloading browser- again! http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/4461/shitac7.gif

Frodo 25-11-2007 02:28 AM

Icewolf 26-11-2007 07:53 AM

I stood logged in for about 15 minutes having AB in the back.
When returned and refreshed the entire forum was marked read. :confused: Damn, I'm a quick reader... ;)
And the "read-cookies" don't seem to work. Sometimes I read all the topic in a forum and it's still shown unread in the main site.
EDIT: Wow, even better! I read all topics and added this post. And the only forum containing new posts is the one I was posting in!
EDIT 2: Sometimes I can't scroll up all the way up. I seems jammed somewhere in the posts. Won't move further up. I think it's annoying that most pages are displayed with the bottom first. You wouldn't do that when you are welcoming somebody, right? Bottom first...? :D

netzmelone 26-11-2007 08:58 AM

Bugs in the website
 
If you click at the keywords in the overview of a game (e.g. http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/738/Caesar.html), in this case sold or strategy, it doesn't open an overview of all the games of that certain category. Instead you are shown an overview-site of a game "strategy", which of cource doesn't exist.

The breadcrumbs don't work as well most of the time.
I'm sorry, but this site ist still a big mess.

Japo 27-11-2007 03:48 PM

I think the best place for the "mark all as read" would be in the header of the forum next to the "new posts", that way both would be present in either the index page or the search results one. Right now you can search for new posts and mark all as read from the index, but once you're browsing the new posts you have to go back to the index to mark them as read. :(

SwampThing 27-11-2007 04:19 PM

Well, not sure if it's a bug or me doing something wrong.

Yesterday I reset my old password, got a temp password, logged in, changed to a new password, and yet today - I can't login. :confused:

So, now I've reset it again, and I'm using a temp pwd. again. :D

dosraider 01-12-2007 10:36 AM

Oh my, this is the first time I look at the site with IE from my son's lappy instead of my own PC with FF.

Oh my, that looks pretty bad ..... most links -(or all?)- doesn't work correctly, avas are looking weird, and yes, I now understand the long list of complaints.

_r.u.s.s. 01-12-2007 10:42 AM

just try getting new firefox on your son's lappy, it won't log you in to the forums=/

DeathDude 01-12-2007 02:07 PM

Heh well I'm still using IE 6 and besides some odd gaps as has been mentioned earlier, all the links are working fine, more or less.

And just tried FF too, no problems logging in and staying in, FF just released another update yesterday _r.u.s.s. try updating and see if maybe that helps.

_r.u.s.s. 01-12-2007 02:21 PM

i have updated today-from the 1.xx version which worked before on this desktop. and now it won't log me in to the forums
http://img161.imageshack.us/img161/2...6513os1.th.jpg

it just sometimes randomly logs me in/sometimes not when i type in /vbullet link manualy after going to abandonia.com
ie logs me in always (of course, when it shows the login bar to type in my name>>)

The Fifth Horseman 02-12-2007 08:55 AM

Firefox v 1.5xxx works with the forum for me. v 2.x was too unstable when I last tried using it, so I didn't bother upgrading.

Icewolf 02-12-2007 11:20 AM

Nay problems here with the latest FireFox. :cool:


EDIT: At work I have to use IE 6 and it still screwes the site, BTW. :D

Mighty Midget 02-12-2007 12:27 PM

Latest FF here too, and it looks semi-ok. The frames are F-ed up, and can someone tell me if the buttons are supposed to be blue?

DeathDude 02-12-2007 04:24 PM

Maybe so, buttons are blue in both IE and Firefox on my end.

mouse31e 02-12-2007 09:55 PM

I've just updated to the latest firefox and now I regularly get the wrong language content on the site. It always says english on the button at the top but I often get the news feed for other languages.

I also find when new forum pages load I end up in a random place on the page instead of at the top.

I get that as well, and I use IE7. :(


EDIT
Dunno if this is a bug or not, but I can't seem to use the smillies when editing a post.


EDIT 2
Ahh, hit 'Go Advanced'. Thanks Dosraider. :):D

dosraider 02-12-2007 10:06 PM

Smilies edit test
[EDIT]
Indeed, they aren't listed when you edit your post.

Manual input then ? :)

[EDIT˛]Yes, manual works.

Or: hit the 'advanced' button, then you get the usual layout with the smilies.
:) :( :p

Luchsen 03-12-2007 12:14 AM

If you once set "Do not use an avatar", you will never ever have an avatar again - at least it seems so for me.

Dave 03-12-2007 11:14 AM

I had problems with my avatar, but now it works.
Strange, I used that option many times but I didn't have that problem.

Btw is it possible to sticky this thread?

The old site was better,nicer to see,less confused imho

Dave 03-12-2007 04:30 PM

As far as I remember the old site was about 3 years old and several bugs were solved because all the possible problems showed up in the meantime.

This one is still under developement.
However in about two weeks we passed from about 11800 members to 14693.
Impressive I would say.

i am still using this new account because my old one didn't send me any password (eventhough my email address is OK).

Juanca 04-12-2007 10:21 AM

when i try to enter to a forum through the page of the description of a game, it sends me to another thread and does not let me scroll down the page.
when i click the forums button at the top of the page it does the same thing.
i finally entered registering again (already done 3 times), and does not appear anywhere a command to logout.
any help to know how to logout from the forums?

_r.u.s.s. 04-12-2007 10:23 AM

you can logout from forums by logging out from page, the accounts are linked.

btw, links for Norton Commander are all brogen (maybe other programs too)

Juanca 04-12-2007 10:31 AM

thank you, now i can see the top of the page and clearly see the logout button.

I can make it show but it starts to cause humongous CPU and RAM usage. It seems that it shows every member, not just the admin and mods? Not sure. I've reproduced the bug a couple of times at least in Opera, and the time I tried to open the page at the same time in Opera, IE and Firefox, my computer got so unresponsive because of the strain of resources that I reset it.

Mighty Midget 04-12-2007 04:43 PM

Ok, now I got three groups there:
Mods
Admins
Custom Title

The VIPs are gone from that list and I get a very, VERY long list of members, presumaby those who can now have ther own custom made titles.

Custom Title group should be hidden I think.

Juanca 05-12-2007 01:14 AM

when i login through the main page of abandonia and then go to forums, i can not scroll down the forums page and seems as if i was not logged in at the forums.
if i log in from the forum itself, the it look as if i was not loged at the abandonia page where al the games are, only at the forum, and can not see the top of the page with the abandonia image and the horizontal menu.
I am using firefox 2.0.0.11

EDIT:
it seems it is a problem with the reloading of the pages, or maybe with opening tabs ? now i reloaded a page of a game and it appears i am logged in.

Mighty Midget 05-12-2007 10:03 AM

When clicking on a profile, I got a totally different one, according to the user name.

Oh, any chance we can get the old forum profile page back? It was kinda handy for mods.

Mighty Midget 05-12-2007 10:36 AM

Ehrm, any chance of getting a "search by joining date" in the member list? It was one of the very newest members (about half an hour ago), but I just had to forget to make notes of the name. but I was re-directed (?) to dragon-tmd. Is it possible to have one nick for the forum and one for the site?

The Fifth Horseman 05-12-2007 11:08 AM

It's under Advanced Search.

Mighty Midget 05-12-2007 11:11 AM

Ok, excuse me for a minute while I step over here to gnaw my head off....

Ok, new one: This member reports some anomalies (in the second link):

http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/sho...9&postcount=50
http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/sho...2&postcount=52


EDIT: Advanced search is no good when the member hasn't made any posts, is it? After all, it's a forum search for posts/topics by users, not a member list search. At least I couldn't locate the advanced search options on the members list.

Thanks. Only one thing: How the heck do I access that list/search (seriously)? I don't know if it's my browser, but the ONLY forum search I can do is the post/topic search, coz if I go to "members" under the "site navigation" tab, I can only apply those filters, but I can't make an advanced search, and there is no "member list" that I can find anywhere on the forum.

Ok, thanks, but shouldn't I be able to access that list myself? Seriously, there is no link anywhere that I can find. If you would be so kind as to describe where that list/link is supposed to reside when I look at the forum, that'd be swell, coz I tell you, there is no such link in my browser window.

There isn't one, not now at the very least.

Mighty Midget 05-12-2007 12:21 PM

Right... So, just to get this straight: The _only_ way of getting that list and that search, is to click the link you provided, unless I want to copy/paste that url from the very same link. Is this correct?

The Fifth Horseman 05-12-2007 02:03 PM

Precisely so.

It shouldn't be impossible to add a new button on forum page like Data did with "New Posts" one.

I can only see the uppe two threads of each forum page, the rest of the screen is blank! Since it does work under internet explorer 6 installed on ubuntu via ie4linux, it has to be a site bug. And I don't have to tell why i hate IE6, do I?:)

There is no log in option at top of page. The 'Dedicated To Classic Dos Games' and 'Select Language' texts are just shown as black squares.

When I 'Jump To' my control panel through the forums, it won't accept my password.

We use IE6 at work.

From: The Red Bomber:
The forum won't display properly (Can't scroll down), so for now I'll have to respond via PM.

I've found his game at requests forum but he isn't able to answer me, I told him to try with HOME & END buttons, but I don't know if it works.

Sometimes happens to me the opposite problem (I can't scroll up), the only way is to use those buttons.

The Screenshot Quiz! bug
 
Hello, it´s seems to be a bug in the pieces of eight count, for example: now Seabstianos is in the lead with 9405 pieces of eight!!!:eek: but when a look on myself I have 75 pieces of eight, just as it should be

Yesterday it looked alright,

Dave 10-12-2007 02:50 PM

It's not a bug, those guys with lot pieces of eights have submitted screenshoots, reviews and games.
This is justice ;)

The Fifth Horseman 10-12-2007 07:42 PM

Seems like the PoE system is being brought into action. Some submissions still are not registered correctly, though (there's at least one review and a dozen games I submitted that don't register on my profile).

Taskmaster 12-12-2007 02:44 PM

Chatroom not working for me
 
I've tried several times but I get the "Error on page" notice on the status bar and I never see any text - what I have typed or from others. Just a blank area.

And the trivia game showed the screen shot from the prior quiz when the page loaded, so I answered it wrong. Then it refreshed to the correct picture. It needs to have an expiration set on it.

And I lost my VIP status... but I guess I can live with that! :D

Dave 12-12-2007 02:48 PM

Well...you are a VIP again now.

Mighty Midget 12-12-2007 04:25 PM

Editing my post in "what are you listening to now", I found I made two posts instead of the one I edited.

When i click from the "latest news" page the "forum" button it sends me to this address:
http://abandonia.com/en/forum
and this page cannot be scrolled down. and i do not appear as logged in
I have figured that the hole forum now is based on this address
http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/
but anyway i have to log in again (i already logged from www.abandonia.com) ...
i have cleared all the cookies of my computer if maybe it was a problem of old cookies but the problem persists.

Juanca 13-12-2007 01:30 AM

Please note that,
"Rick dangerous pack" and "holliday lemmings pack 1991- 1994" games have the year of release wrong (one number is missing).

Sebatianos 13-12-2007 04:32 AM

Seems no body noticed this before (I guess not too many people wanting to help out...).

The HOW CAN YOU HELP US feature on the main site doesn't work. It says Click here to find out, but there's nothing to click on and nowhere to go from there.

EDIT1: To Juanca:
No, that's not a mistake. Those games weren't actually a pack, but separate games that were released in different years. So the last number is missing, because whoever updated them (as a pack) couldn't decide when the year should be. that's why it is preferable to add games (even if they belong to the same series) individually - but possible at the same time.

EDIT2: Another problem
Sometimes after posting a reply, or editing it I don't get the "forum root tree" anymore.

A tiny but confusing bug:
I looked at the Discworld discussion, and opened the DW game page and downloaded it (in a different tab). When I got back on the main forum and looked at the olnile list, it told me I was reading "Request for custom titles"...

Doink 14-12-2007 05:14 AM

I'm sure the quize does't work its definately magic pockets and it says thats incorrect (did refesh the page to make sure i was seeing the correct screenshot)

The Fifth Horseman 14-12-2007 06:30 AM

I'm sure it works, and yesterday's game wasn't Magc Pockets. That one was a few days earlier.
See, the problem is that the images are cached and if you have visited the main site before, your machine will display the quiz image present in its cache. Refreshing the page fixes the problem.

Cold 14-12-2007 07:43 AM

I am currently having a problem with the forum where only the first item on a page is visable, so if there are 10 pages to a thread then I can only see 10 responses to that thread as I can only see the first one on each page.

Hope this makes sense.

I think this is a problem with the coding itself, as ther threads are there, it's just that there are no scroll bars to scroll down the list, so anything printed off page is not accessable.

Japo 19-12-2007 10:49 AM

I've tried to track and reproduce the avatar bug. I can change my avatar for another .PNG, but if I change it for a .GIF for example, it changes in my profile but not in my posts (alreadly refreshed). For example the posts show http://www.abandonia.com/files/members/1/6590-thumb.png while the profile shows http://www.abandonia.com/files/members/1/6590.gif right now. As I said if I upload a .PNG instead of a .GIF, the posts' avatar is updated all right, the posts show a 6590-thumb.png and the profile a 6590.png, but both correspond to the same latest image. There's a problem with the file extensions.

I have the same problem. i noticed that this happens when the address of the forum is something like www.abandonia.com/en/forum/......
it should be www.abandonia.com/vbullet/.....
you can try writing this address on your browser and the full forum should come. hope they will solve it soon anyway

I'm having a similar porblem: (using the IE6)

When I request abandonia.com the forum won't load completely. It's cut off. There is a line on the bottom of the browser and it won't continue loading.

Requesting www.abadonia.com doesn't show this error.

All these bugs that are been listed is anyone going through them and sorting them out? there should maybe be a "fixed bugs" thread showing admins progress in sorting the site out.

In ISO Cellar the unused letters are not hidden anymore - perhaps that's what you mean?

_r.u.s.s. 13-01-2008 10:56 AM

2.0.0.11

but i'd say that doesn't matter. what if somebody else has also a different browser? it's not that any of older firefoxes followed invalid W3C standarts, more like the other way..

Dave 13-01-2008 11:51 AM

I solved several problems updating it, but you have the last version...maybe a program that doesn't allow you to view those attachements...dunno, firewalls? Some windows crapola protection security system?
About the log in problem...it could be related to cookies.

Mighty Midget 13-01-2008 12:25 PM

Here's an annoying one: When I read all new posts, log out, log back in, the posts I just read are now again marked as unread.

Holiday Lemmings Pack 1991-1994, and since these two are no original packs, they have no single release date.

In the first post of any game thread if you click on the "review and download" link it takes you to the complete list of games. Then if you try to use the game search from there it doesn't work.

True. Same problem here.

Also, related to the Quiz, it's the second time I input the correct answer, yet the system tells me it was incorrect. First with Command & Conquer and now with the current one (which I shouldn't disclose till it's over). I couldn't have mispelt it, as I always type in a part of the answer and then fill the rest with the correct option from the drop-down list. Are answers incorrectly written there? Perhaps the system expects '&' and the list uses 'and' or viceversa, or something.

The "game filters" in the lists of "featured games" almost never work. It seems though that it's because most games haven't been assigned their keywords. That's going to be one tough job if it's ever done... if it isn't, the game filters serve no purpose. :/

This was wierd!


Until I logged in I couldn't see the news post for yesterday's game!
I also noted, that you need to be logged in to post in the game discusion forum (which does mean more people registring and not posting - but also less people acctually giving comments, because it's a bother to log in just to say something about a game).

You can't rate a game if not logged in (may not be a bad idea when you think about it.)

It's okay for me in Opera, IE7 and Firefox. You could upgrade to IE7... :P

Icewolf 25-01-2008 08:24 AM

And the advertisement on the right makes the display too broad for the resolution. This only happens in the forum-view.
The view is centered but it cuts off some of the forum posts on the left.

I've just noticed that keywords are being assigned even now. :) That has to be some hard annoying work...

The Coop 26-01-2008 08:30 AM

Perhaps this has been covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find it in a faq, or while skimming through this thread.

My user name link, post count, and user image don't seem to be working properly. I've made several posts since I joined (and I don't believe they were in threads that aren't counted towards post counts), and I've uploaded a user image. I also noticed that I have no join date listed. Is this normal for a newbie here, or did I hit the forum bug jackpot?

At least this last post of yours was made as a guest, you have to log in or maybe even register in the first place. When the site got renewed, everyone had to go through a new registering process, although the postcount and stuff was saved somehow.

The Fifth Horseman 26-01-2008 12:13 PM

Just a minor bug that occurs every now and then with new users.

clusher 26-01-2008 12:30 PM

Well, i've got two remarks:
-First, the Abandonia advertisement overlaps the list of game names possible to the quiz. I've made a post in the proper thread about two bugs related to the quiz too.
-Secondly, when using the game filter the 'perspective' tag is searched not as perspective but as genre. Not sure if made sense. Example:in the filter menu, choose 'Arcade' and '3rd person'. you get:

2 results for: // genre: Arcade // genre: 3rd Person // sort by: title

You see? genre: 3rd Person. Not sure if it influences the search since they look it as keywords.

But hey, great work with the new site. i really like the new features.

After tricking a bit I was able to fix it halfway. Don't know why there are edit pages in every language and if the problem is related to the addition of details I did few days ago.

[edit] Okay, now the genres on English site are missing. :suspicious: [/edit]

[edit] I hope we don't have an MCA here: All genres in all secondary languages are wrongly associated with the English genres. :confused: [/edit]

Sebatianos 30-01-2008 09:59 PM

OK, the first problem I mentioned before - I can see the new news segment only while logged in, but can't see it after I logged out (refreshing doesn't help).

I still have to scroll up to post a reply. Is it really impossible to click post reply and you immediately get to the text window (without scrolling through all the previous posts to the top of the page).

And the last problem is something I also mentioned it before and now I only see it in a few forums - not all. The forum navigation is screwed up as soon as there are a few more posts made. The root doesn't show up any more, so I can't go back to that particular forum after posting there (see the picture).

"TO BE DELETED by Luchsen" :weird:

Sebatianos 31-01-2008 03:55 AM

Obviously if you translate something and there are some setting problems the thing shows up on the front page - but translators and updators can not delete it, so we have to wait for a "higher power" to fix it.

Sebatianos 31-01-2008 04:29 PM

Double posting, I know, but...

Well, what should I say, the same problem again! If I'm logged in I can see the new news post, but if I'm not logged in I can't see it.

WHY???

The Coop 31-01-2008 07:07 PM

When I come to the site, or click the "Home" button, I'm taken to the German front page. But when I click on the "Forums" tab, I still go to the English forums. Does this mean I need to learn another language to know what's been posted? :amused:

The Fifth Horseman 31-01-2008 07:16 PM

Nope, this is a common bug. The English version of Abandonia is accessed by www.abandonia.com/en/ - plain www.abandonia.com takes you to a random language version.

The forum is in English only (except a few rare exceptions, like the translator's page - but they're not seen by the general public anyway).
Only the reviews (and possible game manuals and walkthroughs) get translated.

Eagle of Fire 01-02-2008 09:45 AM

I didn't really know where to report this, but it seems to be in relation to the last few posts anyways.

For kicks I looked at the french version of the site. While looking at my list of recommended games, I realized that many games have absolutly ridiculous categorization... Like for example, 4D Boxing is filed under board games???

Doink 01-02-2008 10:32 AM

This is not really a bug but a suggestion.
The number of languages available should maybe be cut down to 4 or 5, I see most are not updated anyway and to keep all the language versions at the same level would require a massive number of staff members.

Mighty Midget 01-02-2008 12:52 PM

Well, considering that all the translators are doing this because they want to contribute, and that they aren't paid, I see no reason to cut down on the staff, as you put it. Since they aren't paid, it doesn't really make sense to talk about costs vs efficiency. Beside, with the overhaul of Abandonia recently, I know there have been and are problems for our translators, but the bugs will be sorted out with time. Last, I think we should consider any translation a bonus given by those who want to do it.

Doink 01-02-2008 01:42 PM

I'm not suggesting getting rid of translators if they are contributing translations ,but some languages hebrew and turkish just 2 i've seen dont seem to have any updates and should prehaps be removed.

In order for all the languages to have updates every day would require a massive amount of work thats why I suggested just a few languages getting there updates then increase the number of language options, when there are enough translators to do the job.

Sebatianos 01-02-2008 04:15 PM

There used to be a requrement of 100 translations before a language would even appeare (and the requrements kept going higher before a language section would open up) before the redesign. But now the language also has something to do with the registration, so it seems some things haven't been fully cleared up yet.

_r.u.s.s. 01-02-2008 06:50 PM

like seb said, each language has to reach specific number of reviews translated from the english version. and all the languages you see have the needed amount. i really don't see the reason why should be these, reached by hard work, cut off

Too much of the thread to search of the bugs. Here is the list:

Not a Bug but a site suggestion: The "No Go"button displayed on game pages that are ESA protected should be replaced with a "No Download" button to prevent confusion and endless questions in the forum and prehaps the new button could be a link to an explanation of the ESA rules.

Juanca 13-02-2008 12:38 AM

Maybe a bug at Abandonia or a bug at Reloaded, but the recent events of Reloaded at the main page of Abandonia are not so recent...




I agree with doink's suggestion about changing the "no go" tag.

This is for Kosta.
You talked into the Chatbox with Eagle of Fire about this:
I think there's a problem with avatars and signatures requirements.

These are posted on Important Announcements:
Signature Rules.

And these ones into "User control panel" are different:

Signatures
Quote:

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 9.8 KB.

Avatars

Quote:

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB.
It's likely that size requirements are reversed, it's hard to create a nice signature with 9.8KB.

FIXED

Hell, I'm still trying to figure out how to add a signature.

Never mind that, I think SC3 is for DOS after all (haven't downloaded to check). I could run it natively because I had Win98 at the time...

Geezer 21-02-2008 03:34 AM

I don't know how far back this goes (at least the last ten or so) but when you try to add some of the most recent games to your favorites it will always add the game Black Sect instead. Weird thing is that when you go to the Black Sect page it's Add To Favorites link is still there. The only way to remove it from your favorites is to go to the game that you originally wanted to add and remove that one which will actually remove Black Sect. Confused? :wondering:

BranjoHello 21-02-2008 11:32 AM

I've been talking about that for about a week now but no one is fixing that! :notrust:

Maybe is problem in the number that is on the link?
Every game at Abandonia has it's number when it was added (1-1000), but recent games has strange numbers, 234854 or something like that?!? :confused:

The Fifth Horseman 21-02-2008 02:56 PM

It adds the game correctly. Except it _displays_ Black Sect instead.

i'd edit it but on time back machine there was no entry about the game yet so i don't know who was the reviewer and what was the actuall review=/

Japo 23-02-2008 03:18 PM

Damn Google's and Yahoo's and MSN's caches are all from after the page was screwed.

Luchsen 23-02-2008 06:56 PM

There never was stuff for this game. I changed the ware status from protected to abandonware due to the 15-years-rule, and that created an entry.

relative links in rss
 
The rss feed has most of the links as relative links - in other words, it links to /en/games/23421/Cyberlaw.html instead of http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/23421/Cyberlaw.html

This means that when I read it in bloglines, none of the links work, since they take me to http://www.bloglines.com/en/games/23421/Cyberlaw.html which, of course, isn't a valid URL.

Eagle of Fire 25-02-2008 07:40 PM

I am beginning to be quite tired of this bug.

Sometimes I get a page other than english on the main page. Thing is, it's not french! If there was a single reason I'd accept (even though I hate it) that a web page decide to show me anything else than english would be that it's trying to fulfill my language preference in my browser. It's not the case here, and if it was coming from a site I don't know I'd immediatly flag it as a mediocre amateur site...

Other times, when I click on the site navigation tag up left without selecting an option in the menu, it will take me to the exact same language page. If I select any other option, the english version of the site come back to life on my browser.

Very annoying.

Sal 25-02-2008 08:16 PM

:) Hi There.......I have been trying to download the manual map etc from the Laura bow 1 site with no success. I keep ending up "home" Been trying for two days now. Help appreciated.........Thank you Sal

Panthro 25-02-2008 09:44 PM

I'd like to second on the language thing, a minor irritation really, since changing to any other part of the site resets it to english, but heres a taste of the language, and bear in mind, I'm English, and I'm in England, so would have assumed it would auto to english language?

This is the Dusk of the Gods entry from the main page...

Ragnarok dolazi! Vi ste izabrani Ratnik koji mora donijeti prevagu na stranu Valhalle. Ukoliko volite Skandinavce, čitate Thora, posjedujete vlastitu ratnu sjekiru, ili bar uživate u povremenom izazovu, okušajte se u Dusk of Gods. I zapamtite, vježbanje sa sjekirom u dvorištu nije ilegalno ako vas nitko ne vidi...

Who knows the language? my guesses are Czech or Croat...

lazylisa 07-03-2008 01:55 AM

Please pardon me if I am posting in the wrong place.

On my member profile page, it lists "Black Sect" as one of my favorite games, even though I have never added it, never been to its description page (until just now) and in fact never even played it. I went to the edit page to remove it, but only the five games I actually chose were listed there for editing. WTF? Is someone at abandonia trying to tell me I should play Black Sect? Maybe someone disapproved of my other favorites? Perhaps my choices were too obvious and mainstream... :amused:

Also, something is fishy about my number of pieces of eight, as it says 172 but it should presumably be a multiple of five -- I've only ever gotten them by guessing the screenshot of the day, and one time I got 40 points for submitting Last Crusade boxshots.

Neither of these are really important things, of course, but they just make me curious.

Dave 07-03-2008 04:30 PM

The "Black Sect" thing is a bug, it happened to other guys too.
About "pieces of eight" it is all normal, it's a new system born to reward regular members and to check how many of them come here only once.

Adamg 08-03-2008 01:40 AM

This is a very minor bug. In my profile there is a blank entry in my favorite games section. I don't think an entry is simply not showing up, it's just plain blank. Not a high priority, but it is quite annoying. :notrust:

The best way to describe it would be to simply suggest looking at my profile. It should show up to anyone who looks. (?) The blank area shows up to me directly below "Betrayal at Krondor", and to the left of "Final Fantasy - Endless Nova". My guess is that Betrayal at Krondor has such a long "perspective" description that it can't display correctly. If that's true, I suppose one way to fix it would be to allow larger entries in the favorites section.

dosraider 08-03-2008 10:00 AM

Euuurhh ... nope Adamg, your profile looks fine to me (Firefox). No blancs. But also no Final Fantasy ?

As i wrote in shoutbox, go to Abandonia Game Discussion and use the search option :)

Sebatianos 13-03-2008 12:26 PM

Yes, it's possible to search by using the game discusion, but it's inconvenient... there really should be the search option on the main site.

I mean, people who aren't members and didn't log in, or simply come for the games (it's the most attractive feature of the site) will not want to go through game posts, they'd want to search from the main game site (without having to go tot he forum at all).

Had a similar problem awhile back when I changed my avatar I think the previous one was in my pc's cache try a refresh. we mite be seeing your correct avatar.

Dave 02-04-2008 02:31 PM

I did some tests, as you can see I'm only able to change the site's avatar but not the forum one.
I solved a similar problem to "Gnome94", he wasn't able to change both of them, after he opened a new topic his profile displayed the correct avatar/signature.
I think these kind of problems are related to the site, it doesn't update new images.

Tervez 02-04-2008 03:19 PM

Now that I looked, I can change my picture here , but not anywhere else. What's more, my title and signature did change. It's just my avatar that's not working. Or at least it's not working for me, as Doink pointed out. This is what you should see:

Also, the Polish version seems to lack Polish letters (they got replaced with ?'s). The same apparently happened to all the pre-Redesign Polish translations! :(

When viewing box shots, if you try clicking on the game's name in the "home > games > RPG > Lord Of The Rings > boxshots" line under the menu, you get dumped to the alphabetic list of all games.

"Several" correct quiz answers I will decipher as "20" :cool:

The server doesn't... the forum does, and it's a result of bugged data insertion from the site database to the forum database.

Buddy... there are only a handful of admins on the forum. Most of them are too occupied with living their own lives to be around more often than once or twice a week.

So far I manage to check what's going on almost every day, but that doesn't mean I'm at your beck and call 24/7 !!!

Fixing the registered users only takes logging in to the admin controls and like three clicks after that, but there still needs to be an admin to do it.

Your case is not the only one like that. It seems the same function that fixes broken registrations also updates the forum avatars.

Absolutely absurd!!!
 
OK, I couldn't believe this!!!

I'm not using my computer at the moment, since I'm not at home, still I wanted to update an extra for today... The thing is, this computer has only got IE as a browser (I'm installing firefox now) and what happened???

I could not enter the news text! It recognised the frame of the window to input the text, but it wouldn't let me write in it!!!

Imagine being able to do anything with a new thread - except write any text in it.

Now this has got to be one of the most absurd things I've come across and one of the reasons I really hate IE, but hey... I don't like installing things into other people's computers (I'm making an exception right now).

well, as a web developer i can say that there would be bunch of things for which you'd also hate firefox but ie would be ok with it. that's the nowdays world of webdesign..

but yeah firefox is way better browser

Sebatianos 10-05-2008 05:51 PM

I know, we had to make our own website this fall (some general course in post graduate studies on English literature), and lazy as I am I used the tool I got for free through our school - the Microsoft Publisher and I had many problems getting the site to appear normal while browsing it through Firefox... but imagine my surprise Netscape Navigator, Safari, Opera and Firefox (although with many differences) are much more compatable then IE is with any of them.

gregor 12-05-2008 12:35 PM

I use Firefox and Internet explorer, and i found a Bug, I do not know if somebody already perceived or informed. But is A very important bug :(

I use Abandonia In Portuguese Language (my native language) and tried to download some games this week but all for that I had interest were ESA
I found this very strange since the site has

Games

Total: 1088
Downloadable: 956



So i tried to change my language to English to Portuguese and the games become Downloadable.


I think this is very important because have english like native language and like to use this site but cannot download the games..



Sorry my bad english, i'm very busy at moment, Here a Example:

Hi everyone!
Being back after a long time and skimming through my old reviews, I have noticed the same bug for some of the games I did review in english / german. The english version provides a good download, while the german site says "no go". Maybe someone can take a look at this, it's quite annoying IMO.

The Fifth Horseman 26-06-2008 06:52 AM

This seems to be a major issue on the new site.

BTW, I've also got a new bug to list. The status of Power Dolls has changed to Protected on the Spanish version. When trying to edit the game's status I see it is set to AW, so it technically should be downloadable but is not.

I don't really know. It could be that the site used CSS features supported by IE7 but not IE6. There has to be someone else with IE6 who can say if it works for him.

This one and 99 per cent of the WWW. Sad and annoying. Specially since this one was made by proffesionals who got paid and all (Studentis employees). I noticed that since the beta site but I don't think they'll ever care about W3C standards. Who cares about standards, just don't use anything but IE or FF and you'll be fine. Except when you're not. (DUMB.)

Me too. :) But that's just the front page. :(

Anyway there are many CSS 2 features that IE7 doesn't support compared to other browsers. It's supposed to be addressed with IE8. Can't tell if IE6 supported even many less, since the problem is that not enough work was made in that field from 6 to 7.

EDIT: There's also edit button in IE7.

I think that's a bit the problem, aslong you have peeps working for free or from a feeling of involvement, or personal interesse, you can spend all the time you need to bugrun.

Things change when you must pay them, time is money, you only will invest time/money if it's absolutely needed in a site as Abandonia.
Economics instead of love for ol'games.....

But you're assuming that they know about standards and they don't want to implement them. Perhaps they know that they exist and no better. They just code their crap and try it in IE or FF or if you're lucky both until it fits. When they have to debug there may be different bugs for each browser, and the workarounds they use for fixing are specific to the quirks and non-standard features supported by each one.

If they followed standards they would have to validate in w3.org only, which gives debugging info instead of when debugging is done by trial and error and the thing just doesn't work. Also standard code is cleaner and more maintainable. The resulting layout should be more or less the same in all standards-compliant browsers. And at the same time browsers would be encouraged to fully support standards and to stop offering particular non-standard features.

The problem is that the human resources people who hire web developers of course know even less about standards, so they don't value it in the curricula, and they won't value more a guy who codes standard than a guy who codes garbage, as they should. (But some day, web standards will turn into a hype just like object-oriented programming, they'll all be fired LOL.)

_r.u.s.s. 30-06-2008 10:03 PM

man, i don't know where you live but human resources people who hire web devs are usually from a web dev company.. and they know standarts. every semi decent, even crappy web developer companies follow standarts, every trained web developer knows the standarts. it's a basic for web dev business. and all the browsers should too. this is why is IE so much retarded (also this). and standarts are very important for browser developers too. people who say that standarts are nothing important, or omissible, are amateurs and apparently don't understand the matter

it's like writing a book in improper grammar or trying to draw "modern art" when you don't understand art at all

of course that home users and amateur html fanatics probably won't care about standarts but it's understandable since it's just their hobby. there are gazzilions of fanfiction and amateur writers with improper grammar and styling as well

also sorry that i write standarts instead of standards but i have just realized it and i feel to lazy to fix that. stan darts lol

Is there a problem with the downloading of these games? I am wanting to download Abandoned Places. I click on the download game link and it seems to take a while to go to the download page. Once I am there and click on the "Get It" icon, I get a "page cannot be displayed" error.

I Have Carrier Command in my favorites, but instead of that game, i see The Last Half of Darkness VGA....
Now that i've deleted some games from my favoritess, I see that game 4 f-in times!
2)
Another BUG that annoys me is, that my default language is English. And sometimes when I go on the homapge, it gives some totally random language. Ihad portugesse, slovenian etc.
3)
I wanted to submit a game, via the Contact Form, but when i click on it(in the answer to the FAQ) i get sent to the "All Games" section.

Can someone help me out?

humorguy 04-09-2008 02:19 PM

I find myself hardly coming here any more - because I get so angry with this sites software - I will just list my biggest bugbear:

This is the ONLY site I go to where if I post a message in the thread and tick 'get notifications' I get the email, it has the link built in, it takes me to the thread and the message concerned - but then says I have to log in and logging in takes me to my profile page!!!!! This means I need to go back to the forums, find the thread and the post I wanted to reply to, and only then can I reply!!!!

Given the above, why would I come to this site?! Why would I bother to post a message?! Why would I even THINK of being in a debate with someone in a thread or provide ongoing help to someone?!

I don't understand why you have a notification option when you don't have automatic log-in so that posts can be made immediately! I have to go to a couple sites that don't have notification and they are both very quiet compared with those sites that do it properly! IGN is taking over from Gamespot in forum use because of this.

A new site called G.O.G. is opening in September/October. They will be selling old classic games via download. They will also have a forum for retro PC gamers. If they get their site right, sites like this will have their forums wither on the vine.

I still get the odd reply email from posts I made weeks/months ago (mostly under the previous software) and I always click in the email link to see if this problem has been fixed. It never has. Even though this has been mentioned more than one in the last couple of months.

I find myself going to HOTU more often and other retro sites and now seldom come back here. It's just too hard to be a regular part of the forums because of the above problem.

Tomekk 04-09-2008 02:30 PM

how about fcukin "BACK" button on your browser


and why would you be on this site? well, i don't know, because mostly the people who visit this forum are wise enough to know how that if you click the link again, after you login, it remembers your settings, unless you're deranged and try to keep logged in without cookies enabled.

oh you visit gamespot and ign? that speaks quite enough about you because it's filled with kids without any taste and yes, most of them wouldn't even know how to login properly (hint)

if you feel like you wanna visit hotu more fine, what is this a thread letter? jesus christ

Nope. Go to www.abandonia.com/en/forum. Then open the link in your e-mail in a separate browser window. It will work just fine then.

Or, replace the part that says http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/ with http://www.abandonia.com/en/forum?url= , and it will also work fine.

I don't understand why you have a notification option when you don't have automatic log-in so that posts can be made immediately! I have to go to a couple sites that don't have notification and they are both very quiet compared with those sites that do it properly! IGN is taking over from Gamespot in forum use because of this.
Look, it's not our fault that the Studentis webteam have connected the site and forum the way they did it.
None of the actual site staff had anything to do with it, and none of us can fix it.

Quote:

A new site called G.O.G. is opening in September/October. They will be selling old classic games via download. They will also have a forum for retro PC gamers. If they get their site right, sites like this will have their forums wither on the vine.
Maybe. Maybe not. We still haven't seen them release a single game yet, and have yet to see what sort of community their forum will attract and if it will result in Abandonia and similar sites losing public or not (and which particular segments of said public that would be).

Quote:

I still get the odd reply email from posts I made weeks/months ago (mostly under the previous software) and I always click in the email link to see if this problem has been fixed. It never has. Even though this has been mentioned more than one in the last couple of months.
Because way things are now, it can't be fixed.

.... Or post a message on another forum where they send a notification of reply emial and just click on the link in the email without editing anything, without opening another window and without doing anything else except letting that email take you to that message, log you in and let you post a message there and then, no fuss no bother and a method designed to allow speedy 'conversations' which only this site does not allow despite offering the notification option. IGN has a notification system that works, Gamespot doesn't even have a notification system, but it does allow you to look at the threads you have previously posted in and tells you if there are any messages unread. This is a cumbersome system, and this is one reason why the forums on Gamepsot are not as active as IGN's.

This is not IGN. This is not Gamespot.
For the last time: you have a complaint about the way the site/forum integration is working (or rather not working), please take it to Studentis instead of bugging us about something we can't fix. :mad:

Icewolf 05-09-2008 07:05 AM

Well, I don't agree with some stuff in this forum as well (regerding the design that is) but I will stay and see if I maybe can help making things turn out OK or at least acceptable.

And I know a forum that uses EXACTLY this forum software (VBULLETIN) and it works pretty neat.

The only problem that we have is that we can't directly manipulate the code. Otherwise a lot of stuff would have been changed/happened.

There's this "Return of the King"-scenario with Kosta in autumn, is there? :amused:
I guess if somebody who cares about this site is available for maintenance some bugs are going to be squished.

Now let's all have a cool drink.

AlumiuN 05-09-2008 08:12 AM

Actually, I'm quite happy with this site. Before you all flame me - the DieHard Wolfers forum wouldn't let anyone register for half a year and didn't allow me to login if you I 'Never For This Site' when Firefox asked to save my password...

Cold drink thoroughly savoured, downed, and then mellow with some gourmet pizza. :nuts:

Robsie 14-10-2008 01:47 PM

I noticed when trying to add Red Storm Rising in my profile under my favorite games listing (by clicking on Add to your favorites link in the game review), when i look into my profile it has added : Last Half of Darkness instead.

(i tried the opposite to see if it added RSR , but adding Last Half of Darkness from the add to your favorites adds a second time Last Half of Darkness).

I removed them both from my profile (at least it worked).
Not an important bug, as but in case it leads into something bigger, just pointing it.

It seems that what's going on with the buylinks is that they're not saved into the DB.
Adding a buylink to a game, then going to the game's edit screen => buylink is gone.

Even if there's no unread messages... no messages at all - as I usually delete them after reading/copying them? No messages in inbox - but one unread. Studentis... yeah, great job there :doh:

JudgeDeadd 06-12-2008 01:35 PM

I've got a question. Sorry, but today, I snapped. Were there ANY bugs fixed ever since the infamous redesign?

Graphics design is a subjective thing, but no one can deny that the site is filled to the brim with glitches. The forums don't work properly. The tags don't work properly. Links under the menu don't work properly. Translations don't work, and those which were uploaded earlier are now mutilated. This is unacceptable.

My point is: WHEN is anything to be done about it? Look, the site is usable, but you have to watch out not to step into a glitch at all times. Either the Studentis people are really inept at coding, or... or... well, what is a different explanation? :doh:

No, and we can't do anything.
Studentis aren't helping us and Kosta is busy at the moment.

An opinion we all share. All the more frustrating for the fact we can't do anything to fix it.

Probably when Kosta reminds them that contractual obligations work both ways.

In the early second quarter of this year, Studentis laid off a number of employees, including some who from the Abandonia's webteam. I have no idea if they replaced them with anyone or not.
Around that time, the bugfixes stopped.

Since we managed to get some new links working on the forum, i was wondering if we could also fix this linkinizzling issue on the main page.

When there is an annoucement for new boxshots extras or whatsoever it looks like the "omg ze new boxshot".
If you then click the marked position you are linked to the games search (wtf.png).

Can we fit it...? :sneaky:

(awaits the echo)

Data 19-12-2008 07:37 AM

the game/all page is the default 404 page.
So basicly the link you clicked can not be found.

Yes, they did.
And obviously, it's happening on _all_ Boxshot listing pages.
They could have just let it alone with the node adress.

Not sure if we understand eachother here :) What I mean is, when I'm not logged in and click "mark forums read", whatever forum I already read while being not logged in, is now unmarked, that is, marked as UNread.

Very good point, sir. Very good. I want to report a bug that makes most links here work.

One link that doesn't work however, is the new FAQ code in the sb. When in the en/forum url and clicking the FAQ link, I get double vision with two tab bars.

The Fifth Horseman 29-12-2008 10:18 AM

Sorry, it will need some tweaking to get right.

Mighty Midget 30-12-2008 10:29 AM

It works with the vbullet url. Couldn't you just use that in the link? The tabs will still be there and the url will go back to /en/forum anyway, when you click the forum tab.

EDIT: Why is it the vbullet won't show the tabs when I'm at the forum, but will show them when I'm looking at the FAQ? Seems a bit inconsistent.

Luchsen 30-12-2008 10:49 AM

Because you aren't at the vbullet when looking at the FAQ?

I tried to add Nickelodeon Directors Lab to my list of favourite games, it added a different game to the actual profile, but in my settings displays the correct game name.
Not sure if this is NDL specific or a more general bug though. I don't want to mess up my profile testing =P

When you click on "Site Navigation" tab directly instead of expanding the menu and selecting the first option then sometimes it loads up another language version of the site.

This bug is there since the upgrade.

i know about this but for me the bug was not here since the upgrade. it never happened to me whether it was on my personal pc, sister's pc, friend's pc, university pc, never

edit: huh, i log out and see it's back to normal. i guess it's some kind of automatic "default settings" per account we can't change? at least visitors don't get abandonia in portugese

Eagle of Fire 19-01-2009 12:46 AM

I always guessed it have something to do with cookies or something similar.

When I get back to Abandonia, it usualy works fine and load in English. It did load up in another language a few times, but those are far in between and always been corrected by me clicking on the first option of the menu instead of the menu itself.

Nowaday the only way I can recreate the bug is by clicking on the site navigation tab directly. And it's pretty much random: sometimes it work, sometimes it doesn't...

Edit: Oh yeah, and I forgot to say that it never happened to me until I try looking at the other Abandonia language pages. Like if visiting Abandonia on any other language than English triggered the bug.

_r.u.s.s. 19-01-2009 01:11 AM

well it apprantly brings up gibberish only if you're on www.abandonia.com, not www.abandonia.com/en, because that's where you go when you click on the site navigation

Eagle of Fire 19-01-2009 02:11 AM

I think you nailed it.

As russ said you have to load the forum from here:
http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/
instead of
http://www.abandonia.com/en/forum

We will move smilies to site nodes, in this way next time we won't have the same problem.

Added an announcement.

Edit: Solved.

Dino 21-01-2009 11:23 AM

I'm not sure if you were aware of this bug, so I'll point it out anyway.

There's a bug which displays Ultima Underworld 2 (possibly more games?) as downloadable when you select language as English and as ESA protected when you select any other language.

That one just made me mislead one user in troubleshooting forum about the status of Ultima Underworld 2.

The Fifth Horseman 21-01-2009 11:55 AM

Yes, the site apparently treats translations as separate entries rather than linking their status to the original game.

Dino 21-01-2009 12:00 PM

Can existing translations be edited in some way?

Luchsen 21-01-2009 06:22 PM

No, because of the translations-replace-English-content bug...

I was wondering, now that things are changing(towards good ;)) at Abandonia, is there a chance of removing that (one&only that angers me:flame:) bug when adding some games to favorites and they don't appear there?!

I see it's no longer Black Sect problem, now it's Phantasia III(or something) problem. :doh:

Things are changing, but for the moment only on the forum.
Rest assured that something will be done about the Favorite Games bug as soon as it is possible.

It always worked for me. If you enter part of a game title literally you'll find it.

IMHO it's pointless trying to be as good as Google at their business. The site search is for game titles, end of story. If you want to do a thorough crawling search use Google instead:

http://www.google.com/search?q=site:abandonia.com

_r.u.s.s. 04-02-2009 07:02 PM

of course we can't be as amazing as google but what capo probably meant meant was that, for example, white space could be counted as AND/OR statement, not an actuall character. or optimizing apostrophes/hyphens, stuff like that

Capo 04-02-2009 07:41 PM

I frequently get this annoying pop-up add thingy that just appears from nowhere. It is out of place, and it covers up part of the page. When it appears, it stays on EVERY AB page I visit, and doesn't go away for ages.

I know it's probably not very high priority, but I find it very annoying. :notrust:

The Trashcan and Hall of shame (mod/admin only section. Nothing for you regular peeps) doesnt show any threads further than yesterday. This is because this has to be set up from a drop-down menu.

Could someone put this up for a default so it shows all the threads in these sections thankyouverymuch.

Sometimes it happens to me too, those ads comes from Drupal, so this problem could be solved soon, we are planning to change redirect:

Odd, I've never seen that. Though I open in new tabs from the index so I'm looking at /vbullet/ pages most of the time.

But I think you need to go through the site (/forum/) at least once to be logged in, if I enter the forums through /vbullet/ directly without having visited for a while, I'm not logged into my account.

Are you talking about that ad that covers the pages links in the forum? I thought that was put there intentionally to gather more clicks... :laugh: It's always there, I don't even notice it anymore :thumbs:

_r.u.s.s. 08-02-2009 06:40 PM

stop using internet explorer...

Japo 08-02-2009 07:37 PM

If we could reproduce it we'd know what's wrong, and if it can be solved with the access to admins have. I don't think that's the intended result, at the very least the CSS that positions it is wrong.

Weird that it appears only sometimes, I just opened IE and it didn't show up.

I took a cursory look only, but I think this is it:

Code:

    <div id="right">
      <div style="float: left;">
        <div class="block block-game" id="block-game-11">
    <h2 class="title"></h2>
    <div class="content">
    <div style="margin-top: 10px; float: left;">
    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    google_ad_client = "pub-5862367125203386";
    google_ad_width = 180;
    google_ad_height = 150;
    google_ad_format = "180x150_as";
    google_ad_type = "text";
    //2007-11-19: Abandonia.com
    google_ad_channel = "5826423698";
    google_color_border = "CC0000";
    google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
    google_color_link = "0000FF";
    google_color_text = "000000";
    google_color_url = "008000";
    //-->
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript"
      src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
    </script>
    </div></div>
 </div>
 
      </div>
    </div>

I don't see any ad though. :wacko:

Didn't check the CSS yet. Could it be edited anyway? I don't even know where that bigass ad might be _intended_ to be; the only place where it wouldn't cover something would be at the rock bottom of the page, below the quick reply form.

move you mouse to the red (or brown) frame (which is normally around the Pic) or the Title "Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!" and click on it. Its leads you to the Game Page.

Luchsen 09-02-2009 07:42 PM

Remarkable: You can give TC up to 10 PřE for his newspost. Normally it's up to 5.

at first it didn't show but i went specifically http://abandonia.com/files/newsposts...Newsshot_1.png and then nothing. but after i refreshed it it appeared. and now it's stuck in my browser cache so it works for me on front page now.

maybe just hard-refresh will help. anyone who seen the empty page before- do ctrl-f5-ing and it will probably work now

Check in 'user control panel' -> 'Edit options' if the 'Miscellaneous Options' are set as those:

Scroll the whole way down to find ''Miscellaneous Options''

Panthro 19-02-2009 08:45 PM

I seem to have what seems to be a minor bug, tried searching for a solution but can't see one.

For example after clicking "forums" "new posts" then the arrow next to the "last post" lets me see only the last post, and none of the others.

This seems to occur only with threads that have only a few replies, I've seen it with "Os X?" and "The Abandonia Series".

Is this just me? or just firefox?

edit: it seems to load up at first, then cut every post except the final one. very odd.

right click on the forums and then choose "view this frame" or something like that

Panthro 19-02-2009 10:52 PM

I can easily get around it, I was just wondering why it happens, it's not a case of scrolling up or anything, it becomes the only viewable post on that page.

I tend to just go for "last page" rather than "last post" to avoid the problem.

Black_Hand 03-11-2010 08:01 AM

has no one else noticed yet that when you guess the game on daily screnshot it dumps your user record from database? with all the info?

i tried to search for this in forums, to no avail.

that is certainly quite unusual behaviour :). at least i know that you keep the passwords in hash, as any nice website should do :).

Lulu_Jane 03-11-2010 08:53 AM

Yep, we know this is happening (it's also happening during login) it has been this way for about a week, and our technical overlords have been informed.

We will have this sorted asap - and thank you for your eagle eyes! :)

Can't see my post, pages, other posts etc.
 
I hope it will work this time...

Since I am more lurker then regular forum poster I didnt pay attention to this but it has really became pain in my arse last days.
Everytime I post to any thread I cant see that post (czech translation crew namely). Right now I am unable to see my three last post there. Even when I was few minutes ago. At the thread list I cant see me as a last poster. When I want to go to the last page (61) of this thread, most of the time I end up at 51 and then I see there are ten more pages or at the page 5 which indicates that there are no more pages here. Well... I am lucky... many times I end up at the blank page.
I tried to search the forum but it is really impossible to find anything with the annoying stuff like this.
Is there any possibility to prevent this happening? Like forum settings or something? I tried to change the display mode with any positive results.

Lulu_Jane 05-11-2010 09:00 AM

Hi me lobo :)

Sorry for the annoyance this is causing you. We are aware of this problem and are trying to get it sorted. In the meantime there are two workarounds that might solve your problem - first, try clearing your temporary internet files. If that doesn't help, try using the direct url http://www.abandonia.com and not the v-bulletin one, or vice versa.

Dave 05-11-2010 12:08 PM

That was reported too. It's a problem of Jframe if I understand correctly.
As Lulu said the direct url should work, this is the vbullet one:
http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/

Or try using the keyboard buttons "HOME" and "END" (click on the page first) to reach the top and bottom of the topic, sometimes it works.

Hi,

todays daily quiz has width="640" height="400" properties. It makes the homepage real mess.

wczorajszy 22-01-2011 10:52 PM

I don't know if someone wrote about that bugs but I don't want to read previous posts because of my english skills.

List of bugs I've noticed:

- Something wrong is happened with keywords in games sites in polish language. Games have wrong keywords. For Example "Doom II" have "bad"?? and "symulacje"(simulation) keywords. Every game I've checked had wrong keywords.

- Second thing are polish rewievs. There is no polish signs in it, like ąęćłńóśżź. Instead of this are question marks. In "latest news" everything is fine.

- And the last. My polish language is self changed to english everytime when I enter the site. Even if I'm logged. In my profile I have selected polish.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

We're getting this with every translation of a page when the English version is edited.

When Abandonia was upgraded to the current system a few years back, it messed up special characters in a number of translations. Perhaps nobody fixed the Polish ones yet.

I'm having this same issue, with Firefox. I sometimes see a reply I made, and then if I go back later, it's gone. Even though someone may of replied. Is there something else new going on with the Forums since the original post was almost a year ago now. :)

Thanks!

There's a caching problem, I know cos it affects me too!

If you re-load a page using CTRL+F5 it should help. The only other fix is to disable caching, unless there's a way to disable caching for a single website that I don't know about.

Apparently there isn't a problem with Internet Explorer, dunno about other browsers though.

Thanks, I went in and cleared my cache. Something I didn't think I'd ever have to do in Firefox, it was over 650mb, so my guess is it was corrupted!

In the last Time i was making lots and lots Screenshots to replace the bad screen on AB along with some listingshot.

I also replaced KQ 1 VGA, JA, JA - DG, etc Listingshot, but it seems that the Also try-List still show the old Listingshot not the new one. :dislike:

While i am at it i also have to say the Related Games-Box sucks big. It is too small and it has way too much entry of one Game. 1 Entry per Game is enough but so the list is just ridicolous long and annoying!:lynch:
