Triple Triad PSP v 0.4.21 update release.
TTPSP UPDATE v 0.4.21:
A triple trad team and a psp-ita.com hb project.
In those first days we managed to start a psp multiplayer community from scratch.
After the first few hours the european server start to slowly lost in performance,so we had to shut it down,migrating player on the AMERICA1 server.
Sessions were very unstable,player stats where wrong.
Client was very buggy,during chat or lobby many people keep crashing,taking with him his opponent wich is stuck in the room alone.
Player list have graphical glitches and sometimes invites freeze the client.
In 2 days more than 1400 users registered.In 2 days 4787 matchs where hosted in those first 4 days and 1235 where completed without any crash (we assume crashes are just the half of the totals,cause one crash involves the other player.)
But hey,that was the first attemp!We are not going to leave the situation like that anyway!
This first attemp was pretty satisfying for us to see things going almost like we planned,on the other side we know that many players were frustrated by online game instability.
we apologies for those issues and we promise to keep the servers and the client updated and with new features!
So here we are with this 0.4.21 update.
-Ingame crashes rate lowered.
-Forget (and forgive) quitters or crashers: you can now quit in any time after a while in any screen of the matchmaking.Quitters will be logged.
-Timer to auto leave request after 60 secs.Quitters are logged.
-Lost money & all the cards?cannot play anymore?added a function to re-initialize your account (cards & money) without loosing Exp.just enter the shop when you have less than 5 cards in the deck an less than 200 Guils.
-Problems like session timeout,validation result and that kind of stuff, have been fixed on the server itself o the go.
-A layer of security has been added,no cheating has been confirmed,a couple of awesome players are owning thought :D.
-Stats now works correctly,and has been syncronized.top 50 works fine now.
-We have been contacted by contributors to expand the infrastructure to 3 server.Btw whe preferred to manage the community on a single server,located in Western USA.
to not split people on 3 worlds.
-Added a location message if an user logout.
-Card number changed to show equipped cards also.
-Chat issues has been fixed.BTW,standard messages may not work if someone do not translate them in your own language.
-Player List has been fixed,no more crappy deformations
-Invites popup freeze rate lowered almost to 0.
-Player filters now works (press select while in a location)
-Triangle show a direct player infos popup while choosing the deck before a match.
-During match you can see rules.
-This year is the Final Fantasy 7 10th anniversary,so we managed to added the most loved summon EVER.Is a special and very rare card.
When you register now,you will enter randomly in on of the majors world capitals,'cause Balamb's Garden where often full of people and a little too messy.
Also,your region is saved for further developements...Regional tournaments anyone?
Onother thing has been changed is the card cost when selling.
We saw there was a lot of difference between users levels,and guils where easy to get (with trading even easier,reselling captured cards.).Now we re-calculated the selling ratio to 1/4*Card cost.card cost depends on your alignement.
We wish like to thanks:
