since I installed version 0.978 I have problems with multiplayer. I setup a new game 'brother' but I can't find it in the multiplayer window of the game. First time I tried to get to there pocketwar just broke of and exited, next time I want to go to multiplayer the game just locks up when I am on the multiplayer screen (where you select which game you want to play). Reminded me of the time a few days ago you had problems with the provider. Any thoughts?

I just joined your group and haven't had any problems with it. Hey Borg you are in that same group are you able to see it or do you have problems as well.

I am wondering if it is one of the other groups your are in that is causing the problem.

I can not see the game 'brother' on my PDA in multiplayer. I have 5 games going, is there a limit?

Every time I look to see if its my trun on AllOutWar on my PDA, the game locks up and I must reboot the PDA.

Hey Guy are your part of alloutwar as well?

I am trying to look at any of the games I am in that it is not my trun and each one of them causes my PDA to lock up and I have to reboot.

The alloutwar game seems to be fine for me. I had just taken my turn about 5-10 minutes before Borg posted that he was having to reboot/reset. Only issue I had was that my PDA 'lost connection' again and I was forced to reset my PDA as well, but then I was able to take my turn.

I think I know what the problem is. There is not a set limit on the number of groups you can be in but there is a bug in the response parsing code when the response is large enough that it is forced to chunck the message.

I am not in a place where I can fix this (worse I have the code all torn up at the moment.)

Are yall in any multiplayer groups that you can kill. Everyone will need to leave the group for the group to go away. If there is a game running in it then the leader of the game will have to kill the game by starting a new one on the website and then leaving the group. If you get rid of some of the groups then the response will be small enough again that it doesn't chunk.

As so as I can I will get a real fix in place for this bug.
