Join Game cookies changing

Postby super_dipsy » 28 Mar 2018, 19:40

It turns out the Join Game cookies process, where you can save your preferences and then they are automatically set up ready when you go to Join Game, is broken. The way the cookie was built has exceeded the limit in most browsers and so wont save at all.

The code has now been changed to use a different mechanism to construct a much smaller cookie.

if you want to use cookies on Join Game now, you will need to make your choices and then re-save your selection by checking the box to do so. After that, you should (hopefully) be good. Of course you can override them if they don't come up right :)

Actually, I can see another issue now with the cookies. You can set up your defaults, fine, but what you can't do is UNset them :o . Obviously you can change the settings before you search, but then they also go back to the cookie setting and if you click save your choices, it wont allow you to remove any. Back to the drawing board.
