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...

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

If the same level is solved twice, are both tapes & scores uploaded? Yes! But they represent my preferred 'solution', and the one tape which ends up saved locally. Which one ends up saved remotely? Any way I can control it? Here's how it works from 4.3.0.0 on: Whenever you solve a level, the co...

Re: window created twice

OK, then it's perfectly clear: The game starts with default window size, finds out that it has to use a different window size, and re-creates the window with that different size. So this indeed happens every time you start the game. If this is a "bug or feature" (when compared to resizing ...

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

Hi BryanFRitt, thanks for your detailed report of your test of RC2! :-) It already helped me improving the score/tape upload error handling! 'yes' 'no' 'no, quit nagging me' default should be 'no' (aka don't do it, but still nag next time) Not sure about this one ... do you mean the "upload tap...

Re: window created twice

Does this always happen, or only if you start R'n'D with a last played level set that has custom window dimensions? I have tested this and was only able to reproduce this in the above mentioned latter case, like when starting R'n'D with one of the level sets from the EMC collection (which use a diff...
