Can't Save Isotrident Games

Postby Archimedes » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:36 am

I've been playing some freeciv-web games on isotrident the last couple weeks without any issues. However, today I found I am unable to make any new saves. Are other players experiencing this as well?

While in the game I go to the Options menu at the top and save, and it tells me my game was saved, but then if I leave the game and try to return, no new save has been added to my list. I tried deleting a bunch of my older saves thinking maybe I had reached some sort of cap, but that didn't help. Now, when I log in and go to load a game, my older saves have indeed been deleted and no longer show up, but new saves are still not appearing. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this? Thank you for your help.

It's been a couple days and no reply. Does this mean other players are able to successfully save and load games on Isotrident? I've tried multiple different browsers, and using both the Save game button in the Options menu and simply typing Ctrl-s, but nothing can establish additional saves for my game. If other players aren't encountering the same problem, at least that knowledge would help me troubleshoot.

I've did quick test.
Created new account, saved game and I was able to load that game again.
It might be buggy, and u need to create new account every X saves :D.
It seems you can set fake email so no big problem.

Try starting new game with the normal account. If you are able to save there it will mean everything with account is good, but something is wrong with that particular game - server probabaly can't save or read it right.

Probabaly u should click 'chat' on isotrident.com , go to discord server and send question to Andreas.

I tried this, and saves made with a new game don't appear in my Load Game list either. I also tried loading an older save from my existing game, playing it forward beyond where my latest save was made, and then saving it, but that didn't work. No new saves made with any game seem to stick.

I was hoping to hear from other players having problems, but I guess if I'm the only one, that means my account on the server has somehow become corrupted. Can I access old saves if I create a new account?

I attempted that earlier but didn't continue once Discord asked me to register with them. I guess I'll go sign up on Discord and see what Andreas has to say.
