Signing Out Bug
« on: March 24, 2006, 04:18:01 AM »
Not sure if this is reported yet, but I'm pretty sure that when you get a conn loss and then reconnect and are still in the same game you get sent back to lobby like 3 minutes later. I'm pretty sure this is caused by your first login session being idle for 5 minutes logging your account out, because you switch to your second, although I could be wrong. It's happened 3 times, so I THINK it's a bug. Not 100% sure.

I have noticed this too, never bothered to bring it up or thought of it as serious as I hardly ever lose connection anymore.

Would be nice if you could look into it.

Better explanation:

You are playing a game, and you get discnnected. You are sent to the "Connection lost..." screen and then you sucessfully reconnect.

Now, the way Star and I too think it works is that you have logged in only once, but the server still thinks you have logged in twice, with the same account. However, the server recognizes your two same accounts as two unique accounts. The first being the one you lost connection on, the second being the one you sucessfully reconnected with.

Now, as you play, the server pays attention only to the *first* account, and since you are not on the first account anymore, it is idle. As th idle timer runs out, you automatically log out.

I tried to explain that the best I could, lemme know if its still confusing and I'll try something else.

I understand, and now I think about it, that may have happened to me before, on one of the rare ocasions it lets me log back into the game anyway...

Has happened to me about six more times. It's gotten to the point where after reconnecting I can actually say when it's about to sign me out. I have to win in triple speed after I reconnect or I'll lose :/.
