Can someone upload a new game and then try plugging it into http://adriftbackup.ovh ?

Maz still has to prettify it a little and will be listing some different games, but it should be functional.

I just tried uploading my comp game and pointing at it. It worked:
http://adriftbackup.ovh/?game=https://w ... ion).blorb

However, there are two problems I noticed:

1. "Restart" doesn't work
2. The browser remembers when you left the game last time unless you shut down the browser, which is not good as the player might have other important panes open.

The combination of this isn't so good, as the player will have to shut down the browser to restart. It also helps starting another game - then it seems that it forgets where you were and will start from the beginning again. EDIT: Clearing browser data also helps.

Still, well done to Maz for getting this to work.

Can those two problems be solved I wonder?

P/o Prune, perhaps it would help if you told Campbell that Play Online still doesn't work for newly uploaded games. As the voting period of ParserComp 2021 ( https://itch.io/jam/parsercomp-2021 ) has started, it is quite a problem that my game cannot be played online. The only games that haven't received ratings yet are the Windows-only games. So it would be great if Campbell could fix it soon. Thanks :)

Yeesh, it's been broken this whole time?

I'd been thinking that was fixed for some reason.

Is the online Runner ever actually working? I don't use it myself so I'm not sure but I've been hearing people complain about it being broken for years now. When was the last time it did work?

It stopped working some time after 12th of March 2021 but it is only a problem for new uploads. The Online Runner works for games uploaded before 13th of March.

In case you haven't seen it yet, I just saw this item this morning on IntFiction - https://intfiction.org/t/frankendrift-p ... ux/51528/5
Still in early stages but looks promising. He was testing it on Denk's game in the ParserComp.

This seems a big enough deal for its own thread.

Not that it's helping much, I know :blush: But Campbell has been away all weekend.
I have contacted him through messenger and the message has been delivered so, fingers crossed. :whistle:
I've got a reply from Campbell. He promised to look at it as soon as possible. (So my crossed fingers helped :D )
