Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 5 released!

- uploading score tape to score server - TIMEOUT. No idea what might be the reason for this timeout, and I also cannot see any errors in the server log file. (You have successfully uploaded some ~3000 tapes to the server during that batch run, and all are marked as "OK" in the server logf...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 2 released!

I was gonna say, I have some questions about the fate of sockets 'udp' and 'sfd' in network.c:ConnectToServer(), but I don't _think_ those are the cause, because I doubt that would be getting called in every upload. No, it's completely unrelated code. Then there's a subdirectory of tapes for each l...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 4 released!

Not tried to run yet: it looks like this switches to the other naming scheme, but does not try to fix existing directory structure. Right? Yes, that's right. So, I intend to rebuild the structure by running this, using Larry Wall's Perl `rename` program: I hope it also does the opposite direction, ...

Re: transition states not saved and/or recalled correctly

I must admit that I am not totally sure what this thread is really about, or what kind of bug happens. :shock: I don't think my live play is being uploaded to the server yet, as I've been building with the TESTING flag that directs it to a test server. There is currently no other score server than t...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 5 released!

I think this fixed the major 'serious' problem. Lots more tapes submitted this time around, way closer to the expected count.  And the levels are still there after submitting tapes!  I'm really happy to hear that it works now! :-) Could these be ?random tapes in random folders? ?backups? ?downloa...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 4 released!

OK, release candicate #5 is out right now, and should fix that problem (with only uploading 1005 tapes, and also with showing "empty default style" levels after uploading is done). Please reset those values from "off" to "on" in the server setup config file again, and g...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 2 released!

OK, found and fixed that hair-raising bug (which was a stupid, noob-style pointer bug -- I should have know better when I wrote that crap)! And did another test run with my 610 tapes, and had the same number of open file descriptors after the upload.

RC5 is on its way... :roll:

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 2 released!

OK, just did a semi-heavy "upload all tapes" run for testing: SUMMARY: 610 tapes uploaded. Well, not *that* many tapes, and well under 1024 (and I still have to check my current fd limits), but this is bad: $ ll /proc/6389/fd | wc -l 631 $ ll /proc/6389/fd | grep socket | wc -l 615 So appa...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 4 released!

It's been the same ~/.rocksndiamonds with whatever been in there, not fresh. It would ask again even if it was the exact same RC and the it's previous run had finished the submission process. Sorry, you are right; this was a misunderstanding. When looking at the other thread, filbo's suspicion of l...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 2 released!

1005 uploads then 'file not found' type errors sounds like a file descriptor leak & a 1024 descriptor limit... I've thought about this the whole day long (while working in the house and garden), and I totally had no clue what might have happened here, as R'n'D apparently suddenly stopped being ...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 2 released!

I suppose I could have backed it up, but I didn't. ~/.rocksndiamonds/stdout.txt is blank now, don't remember if there was more in this file at that time. Could you please repeat the uploading process, as described in the announcement for RC3, but with RC2 (which still caused the program to exit, in...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 4 released!

On 1st run R'n'D said the same number as before was sent to server. That was 1005 tapes, according to the database. (At least two attempts to batch upload all tapes, each uploading 1005 tapes.) all levels were 100% dirt after submission Which level set was displayed when all levels where shown as &...

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.3.0.0 Release Candidate 2 released!

I'd really appreciate if there was some sort of preferred tape control. In simplest form, if the server simply reflected my most recent saved solution tape, rather than all of my solution tapes, that would work for me. I have thought about this for quite some time now, and I think I have found a so...
