I've just noticed (after a pair of brief outages) that Little Golem is back up with in-game chat that isn't limited to “one comment per move” AND allows you to see the entire conversation without searching around in the game for the correct move number!
It also allows you to write a message when it's the opponent's turn.
Nice feature, thank you Richard!
Wow, very nice addition, thanks Richard !
Also a subtraction
On an android tablet just played last but one move, but no chat box appears to do the custom gg
Indeed, the chat feature is gone from the iphone version. Is there an alternative, besides using the full (desktop) version? I supposed it is stored differently so it may probably need a rewrite on the iphone side. Nice feature on the desktop side anyway!
Desktop, can even chat after game has finished, maybe, have only gg'ed after a gg so not expecting a further response to test
Beware: the “Send move” button no longer sends the message!
So send your message with “enter” BEFORE sending the move, or more simply: just play your move and you can send a message later :)
A problem with the new chat feature: For full board shogi (and probably other games), the new chat feature pushes the board off the top of the screen (on a desktop), so I have to scroll up to see the board. The problem is, I usually like to play through the previous moves of the game when I am thinking about my move, but every time I go to the next move, I have to scroll away from the chat to see the board. One possible solution would be to have an option for the user to “hide” the chat?
I appreciate the improvements to chat, but I would call the message failure when you don't press Enter a bug, and I hope it will be fixed soon.
Chat feature also disappeared from the Android version.
Great feature, thanks!
Thank you Richard, I loved the new chat design!
generally cool, but, at least in wyps:
I am OK with the old form, maybe it is better to keep it simple.
Also have no need to talk if I am not on the move, it may be even a bit confusing. There are messages if needed.
I think that last problem is only a problem in games where you make more clicks to make a move. While the new feature has more advantages.
losing [lose,loss] focus
p.s. google will also change loosing focus to losing focus
The problem I mentioned 2022-01-09 (see above) has been corrected. Thanks Richard!
No chat on mobile ☹️
May I ask for a simple addition?!
May “Send Move” button sends also the chat line in addition to sending the move that would be great!
Currently, I play the move, then type in chat then:
Am I the only one who suffers from this?
Seems similar to my previous points, NF.
I noticed a side effect of the new feature. If I say “Great move!” to my opponent I need to specify which one ! Because obviously there is no more sync between the moves played and the comments made !
This means that in all those beautiful past games, we may have lost the fine analysis made during play :(
maybe save messages with move number between player_name and message
Player one:0 Good luck
Player two:1 Good luck
Player one:58. gg
Player two:59. gg, next time I will win!
Player two:60. maybe….
