Random IM Weirdness
« on: Sep 20, 2014, 12:55:51 AM »

Not sure what was going on tonight, but I stepped in to call a duel for Khoom and suddenly realized a long time had gone by since his opponent had sent me her move.


I kept hearing the chime that indicated new text to the room or an IM, but not seeing anything new coming from her IM or the room.


Fortunately the whisper function was an alternative, so we used that for her to send me her moves, but this could be a potential continued problem, so I thought I'd mention it.




ETA: We both tried refreshing the chat list. I disconnected and signed back in even. Still nothin'.

I've noticed that if you minimize the IM window, it's going to go all wonky on you. 


And didn't think to mention it, because I don't usually use the IM function over here.  =/
 It's pretty much like a green pepper. Only...it's yellow!    Popular in the summer, a sweet, light, watery fruit with black seeds.    A thick, shimmering silver bracelet with tiny acorns. The acorns hold tiny clappers, making each movement of the wrist sound as if it was tinkling water.    RhyDin's finest home made brew. Random and questionable contents which all lead to the same thing: getting stupefied drunk. Warning label reads: May cause fire breathing, murderous rampages, embarassing confessions, illusions of grandeur, overly affectionate thoughts and gut rot. Drink at your own risk.    It's pretty much like a green pepper...only red. Some say red peppers are sweeter and have a different taste than green or yellow.    A green apple, sweet and tart. Perfect for baking or snacking on.    An odd, spiky plant with bitter outer skin and useless green top--but magnificently sweet and flavorful inside that makes a great snack and juice; possibly a weapon.   A tasty and fun-gi. Mushrooms can be added to any food, cooked or raw. This one does not come with hallucinations or poisons.    A trout grilled on a stick over a fire until it is crispy and golden. Lightly sprinkled with sea salt and cracked pepper.    Sweet, crunchy vegetable good for sides, salads and more.    A versatile vegetable for cakes, stews, meals and rabbits.    Oblong, yellow food that should be peeled before eating sweet insides. Also great for comedy.    Acorns are bitter--but can sustain any traveler desperate for food. Or grow your very own tree!    It's a strawberry. A single strawberry. It's rather tasty.    One fabulously soft, ripe pear. Don't leave it in a backpack or it'll turn into mush!   Delicious grapes, small, round objects of sweetness. A great snack no matter the circumstances. Although, once you eat these, you'll have to get more.   
You done bumped your head.

Blank IMs/IMs going blank, Chat room blanking, unfortunately are a known bug with no eta on fix, as neither Kal nor myself know how to fix it--and we are no longer getting support from ProChat as they stopped supporting this version of chat.

This is why I am on the lookout for new chat software for us; I am so sorry about this. For now, it's recommended for super important things like calling, alternative IMs be used. Also, if you check the logs--if you are not disconnected from the chat, room messages should still show up there
 You own a rock. It's a rock with a symbol on it. Nobody is sure what it does.    Light, flexible, and handy for the acrobatic types.    A versatile vegetable for cakes, stews, meals and rabbits.    RhyDin's finest home made brew. Random and questionable contents which all lead to the same thing: getting stupefied drunk. Warning label reads: May cause fire breathing, murderous rampages, embarassing confessions, illusions of grandeur, overly affectionate thoughts and gut rot. Drink at your own risk.    A heavy long steel shield, enchanted with nature and shaped to resemble a leaf. The shield is said to be able to cloak the bearer in forested areas three times a day.    Madam Curio's specialty potion. One potion can restore either a tiny tidbit of health, stamina, mana (magic), strength, dexterity, perceptions or intelligence with one draw back: the effect is random and the drinker has no idea which will be bolstered.   A steel shuriken, or throwing star. Easily concealed, these weapons can be thrown or hidden in the palm for slashing or puncturing.    A deep green ring carved from spinel. Engraved are shapes of twisting vines that seem to reach out. This ring is ensorcelled to allow the wearer to cast Tangling Vines, a spell to trap a target, twice a day.   A necklace with the mummified claw of a supposed harpy. It is said the necklace may grant the wearer feather fall once a day.    This health potion is enough to restore light wounds (cuts, bruises, knock outs.) It may be enough to keep serious wounds together long enough to seek medical attention...but it isn't recommended for near-death health issues.    A splendid long cloak dyed as black as a starless night. To keep a body warm or to keep them hidden in the shadows?

You may all be shocked and amazed. I have found the solution. So. The main issue with the IMs stems from when a person is 'hiccuped' in the chat. Meaning they may not even be disconnected but if the chat shows them as DC'd and ReC'd, their IMs in the open window will never show back up.

HOWEVER, in a duel with Roan this evening, he DC'd and I closed out his window. When he ReC'd, I IM'd him and it worked. This will only work if the person logs in after you've closed the window. Maybe multiple relogs are necessary. I don't know. But. It's a step! And it's better than having to use whispers or proxy IMers.

:D
 You own a rock. It's a rock with a symbol on it. Nobody is sure what it does.    A slim band of an inky black stone commonly referred to as Obsidian. There are rumors that this material can defeat something called a 'White Walker.'   A cured bear pelt ready for leather working, becoming a rug, blanket or whichever the purchaser desires.    Leather whip, dyed black. Eight feet long with brass studded grip and wrist loop.    An orange. This citrus fruit makes a great snack, additive to foods and juice.
