Originally posted by Cosmic Charlie I liked the old version's feature that allowed reviewing the moves after the game was over. I don't seem to be able to do that in this version without getting the PGN.
This is a temporary omission to allow us to get the current version released as soon as possible.
Don't care for the placement of controls in this version. Things are not naturally placed: for instance, the resign button is hard to find. Also, the timer selection process seems awkward. Also, the pieces move slowly and the color scheme is hard to see the board.
In general, the other version, despite it's flaws, was actually more user friendly and much quicker.
A couple of other thoughts as well: make the color of the board user definable. Show ratings of the other players and implement a blitz rating. The color scheme of the non-board section is low in contrast, and should be using colors of clear separation and borders.
Originally posted by Coffehouse Blitz not working for me.. IE8 WinXp. Home tab is blank screen and Game tab doesn't work. Able to set time controls, but can't offer up a game and do not see any games. Suggestions welcome.
If possible, move away from IE8.
We understand not everyone can do this, but if on XP, install Firefox or Chrome.
The previous implementation of Blitz was Flash based, so the browser type was of little importance. (it is a browser plug in) Flash has effectively reached its end of life now, so we require modern browsers instead.
