WormNET Service Updates
« on: March 22, 2020, 08:41 PM »
Some updates due to the recent jump in activity:
  • HostingBuddy now sends replies from a rotation of nicks to avoid server flood limits
  • Fixed a crash in the WormNAT2 server
  • Changed how the rank/flag is obtained from WormNET, to better work during very high WormNET activity
  • GOG versions are no longer detected as a snooper
  • Fixed being able to reopen games after HostingBuddy is restarted, which would lead to erratic behavior (games randomly closing and "wrong game ID" errors)
  • HostingBuddy and friends will occasionally remind people about some alternatives to !kick (!close and !phost)
  • Allow old URLs (as obtained with /url) to work after a !reopen
  • Fix WebSnooper history getting erased due to the new rank/flag query mechanism
  • Fix encoding of non-English characters in some places
  • Add Host button on WebSnooper
  • Many internal fixes
The new host button is a little experimental. (If you want to mess around with it, I recommend using the staging server.)

As usual, post here if you notice any problems.

Nice, thank you. Keep it going :)

It tells me that I can't connect to the server, at least inside the game.

Sorry, I keep forgetting that you need 3.8 to connect to the staging server with the game itself. But hosting and joining games on the WebSnooper instance there should work.

Only few estetic ideas:
1. On regular websnoop could be link/button to redirect at legacy websnoop (for those which dont know about it, and regular websnoop dont work for they).
2. When will HB server restart and all HB hosted games goes crash, it can inform in lobby or in game chat little time ahead about it. Something like "HB server need restart, this game will end in 1 min".
1234   did you noticed? There <--- are only 4 links.

What is this circumstance?

That's not how we restart HB. All games continue in the background until all games are done, only then the old HB exits. Today HB crashes are very rare (less than 1 per month).

On older browsers page snoop.wormnet.net looks like in attached picture. There could be somewhere for this issue "SOS" button for redirect to page http://snoop.wormnet.net/snooper/legacy.html, which work normal. If somebody have old browser and dont know about working legacy snooper, have just bad luck? Simple hypertext "if it not work, click here", or "older version is >here<" could help they.
