[Twinsen][0.17.65] While catching up to an MP game some buttons do nothing

Post by Muppet9010 » Mon Aug 19, 2019 11:15 am

While catching up to an MP game if I press escape to get to the in-game menu, the save and pause buttons do nothing when clicked. I see the click animation on them, but no outcome.
I think the buttons should be either disabled or have a popup notice like the Mod Settings button does when used in this state.

Fixed in Version: 0.17.67.
I changed it so pressing ESC disconnects you from the game. This should also avoid other problems when changing some settings.

Maybe not an ideal fix but it's either this or minor issue.

Doesn't this mean that if a player on a slower conenction is intermittently in the 'catching up' state, and that player happens to hit escape to bring up the menu, then that player will be disconnected when they did not intend to?

i think instead of immediate disconnection, it should give a pop up, really disconnect, click yes, no, if they click nothing and finish connecting the pop up goes away. this would fix unintentional immediate disconnection when pressing ESC.

I believe the user just disconnecting when they try to access the menu when catching up is very confusing and doesn't solve the original issue.

Yeah, you're right. I made so the buttons get disabled when you are catching up and enabled back when it's finished.
Thanks for the feedback.

Fixed in Version: 0.17.68

How about adding a disconnect button?

The quit button will not be disabled so you can still disconnect as usual.
