Reregister game in multiplayer lobby when host disconnects from lobby.
Changes PlannedPublic

Authored by elexis on Sep 15 2018, 10:50 PM.



When in the multiplayer, if the host is either in the game setup or playing a game and loses connection to the lobby server, the server automatically unregisters the game from the lobby.
This patch reregisters the game to the lobby.

This reregistering will only happen if the host tries to open the lobby dialog on the game setup or in-game and presses "yes" in the already existing reconnect box.

Test Plan

Trying the patch in the lobby as a host, client, observer in the game setup and in-game.

Probably wrong approach.

(as mentioned some time in the lobby)

The feature is definitely needed.

Ideally the game is reregistered as soon as the connection is rebuilt, and the connection rebuilt without the user having to open the lobby dialog (so that observers or lost players can rejoin even without the host having a suspicion that the game may be unregistered), but I don't know how much work it is to make that happen.




Avoid globals as much as possible. This value is true if the session is active, can also be true if observing.
If it's called from within gamesetup or session, then one doesn't have to pass it on here.


This function can be in gui/common/ somewhere, (maybe a new file or not, didnt look), and then it can be called in the gamesetup and session.


It would be better to not cache this, but to move the function building this value to gui/common/ or so and just call the function again if in need of the value.

I can rewrite it, but for which repository?

Why not both ? Isn't that what open source is for ? Giving the ability to everyone to adapt code ?
