Kalimar and I pushed through a new version of the FFB Server and client to the site earlier today. While this was mainly a back-end type update, there are a few new things in this release:

1. The new (BB2016) version of argue the call is in effect.
2. Timmm-ber! is supported by the client (although it doesn't exist on the site yet).
3. The client is signed with a new, current, code signing certificate which should get rid of some scary security messages at launch time.

Some problems have arisen though:

1. Match results are not properly uploaded to the site.
The matches are not lost by any means; they are simply stuck in the FFB client and once this bug has been identified and solved, the games will be manually pushed through to the site.

2. Replays are not working.
This is also something we are looking at. Again, nothing is lost here and we simply (or possibly not so simply) have to identify the bug and solve it.

It's quite late for both me and Kalimar though, and these unexpected problems will have to wait until tomorrow.

I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you. The replay issue, while bad, isn't nearly as bad as the missing uploads. We're doing what we can to solve it.

Both of these issues have now been fixed. Hopefully, it didn't impact you too much.

Seem Sneaky Git isn't working correctly because of Argue the Call...

My player Headless Andrew got sneaky git, first time he failed a foul in the game I got lucky and rolled 6 then the ref call worked.


Then he failed again and argue the call failed and he got ejected.

I've deployed a fix this morning that should address both problems (replays and result uploading). Could someone please verify that fro me?

Did this update contain any other bug fixes or just the rules updates? I'm thinking mostly of the shadowing/side-step issue.

I can not start a game, the FantasyFootballClient application is blocking, it's weird? You have the same problem? You know what I have to do?

thank you in advance

Great that you're able to develop the program more, I can totally relate to how much time and effort goes into running a games server as cool as this one, good job and thanks!

About the rule, is it correct that it makes fouling that little less risky in that there's a 17% chance of getting the player back? Is the only punishment a -1 on a roll for only one of the kick off choices? It seems minimal risk... or am I missing something?

I fouled someone with a dirty player and stunned him. Ref caught me and instead of Argue the call, the game crashed. A league game too and I can't get back in.
