Disconnect from net, game keeps going

Post by Geogriffith » Fri Aug 17, 2007 12:48 am

Hello, I just got the email saying how to update to 5.0 (5.0r to be exact), and the first thing I checked out was the network play. I saw one game to spectate, watched for a while, and then disconnected.

At that point, the game continued to play on, with the computer substituting for the players. There is no way to stop a 6-player AI game, without starting a new game. Closing down slay and starting it up again just resumes the AI game where it left off.

This is all rather annoying and distracting. I'd rather my computer not crunch out AI cycles when I really just want to stop the game. An option to kill the current game would be nice, as well as the option to "continue" net games with AI opponents.

Good point that!

I made the game continue even when you had disconnected in case the server was switched off or crashed and you'd have the option to continue playing the game solo then.

I'll make it so that if there are no humans left in the game at all it will stop the game and display "Game Over"
