Can't see on the Trophy page where there is a button or any interaction possible to designate my squad... 5 new teams made and tagged[TB2] ready for registration!

My wife does say I have "boy" eyes when failing to find the cream in the fridge (as if hers work any better to find the #3 Robertson screwdriver!)


On IE, i cannot find it yesterday.
There is a "designed a squad" button on the https://fumbbl.com/p/boxtrophy
you choose your 5 teams and click on the "Select squad" button.

Can't add anything Wink

IE?

Give Christer a break eh? Wink

There comes a time when a person should leave the past behind and move into a brave new future.
Not that IE was great when it was new.

Get a new browser!

I have a "new" browser. But as an old support tech, i know that IE can occur. And that testing a web page with different browser is part of the path to resolve many problems.

Hope NerdFrog finds its own resolution and can be par of this challenge

Allrighty then! Hopped on over to the Box Trophy page using the MS Edge browser and, lo and behold, there is the "Designate a Squad" button!! Yahoo!!!

I was using IE for its compatibility with Java - necessary to play. Edge does not support Java. But neither does Vivaldi or Firefox 64bit.

Which is your browser of choice for late-night Fumbbl sessions? Smile

It can occur. Only Christer can tell how often it really does ocurr. So, to what extent is it cost effective to worry about it. Especially on a function that people may only use once per year. Many people not at all.

It may be a quick fix. There may be loads of IE users. But it is still extra effort for unpaid staff.

But hey, people can continue on IE for another 7 yeas if they wish. But it will continue to be fewer and fewer of them. They will get a reduced experience on more and more sites as time goes by.

How about a #BoxTrophy Discord channel?

The FFB client is indeed Java, but that doesn’t prevent it to work in any browser. It’s a bit complex, but essentially the browsers block Java “applets”, which is/was a way to run java code within the browser window.

FFB uses what’s called “Java Web Start”. This downloads a special “document” of sorts (a jnlp file; Java network launch protocol) and opens it externally with the Java web start application (javaws.exe). This is much like opening any kind of document (pdf, zip, word doc), and works just fine.

And to answer your question, my browser of choice is Firefox.

Thank you for the clarification and explanation, Christer! It's an honor to have you reply to my post personally! I'll put on my geek hat aND convert to Firefox!

Well so far my pro elves have been shocking. 0-0-3. But early days still. Starting my 1st ever Slann match soon...

Is there something wrong with the standings table? Most scores look correct but some are way out? e.g. couple of coaches near the top with 2 games played, each have 19.5 points?

I think you missed this part:

An additional 2.5 points are awarded per point of unused team budget.

there's a few who took Ogre/Fling/Goblin + 1 point teams...brave souls!

@Mattius sorry your first Slann match didn't go better! You will draw 'Flings next and have a blast! Wink

Ah that makes the scores a bit more accurate, but a few still look incorrect to me - is there some formula problem with the table? Great idea to run this again and put a standings table up though Smile Really pleased it's 150 games too, meant I could possibly finish this time - and therefore enter in the first place!
