Fan games page renovations
« on: May 12, 2011, 11:20:41 AM »
Alright, after work I am going to upload a new and improved fan games section. I just couldn't wait that long to say anything. Soon, registered members will be allowed to rate games as well leave their opinions about a game and yes I have also allowed for larger screenshots as well... I don't have larger screenshots yet, but once I do. Anyway, get your opinions ready.

Ok so the new fangames page seems to be up and running. There's a couple of small changes to make to the overall average score... like adding in some decimal points but very minor so for now I'm gonna call it done and get back to finishing off the agi games and new larger screenshots. I did throw up a new one for Acidopolis  so you can see what it's gonna look like

I like it.  It looks great!  Now I just need to play some games...

EDIT:  Looks like the sorting of games has become out-of-whack.  Looks like most of the SCI games come before the AGI ones, but there are exceptions.

The default sort is now by rating, no ratings, no real order. I know one game you played enough to rate, go enter your selections and see if it doesn't pop to the top. By the way you can only rate a game once, but you can constantly change your score or edit your opinion.

Too true - I did play that one game more than once ;D.  I completely missed the new sort.  However, for a member (or guest) that hasn't rated any games, the default sort does come out a bit strangely.  Could a 3rd default sort be implemented in alphabetical order?

And thats what I get for making last minute edits and not testing it before I left. There's supposed to be some stars and report the avgs on the individual game screen. c'est la vie. I'll fix it tomorow, there's no data loss though so don't be scared to enter a rating.

Should be all good to go now, I don't see anything that is really standing out as being wrong anymore.

Enjoy

The 'Other's Opinions' section at the bottom has comments titled with things like:

Looks like username & timestamp need translation?

I haven't decided how much member info to include there, so for now I'm just pulling data. Your right though, member id timestamp, then the 4 votes and their thoughts. Anonomous might lead to more honest ratings though... I'll fix it when I decide.

Hadn't considered anonymous.  Add my vote to that one.

The 'Download Now' link on the individual game pages seems to be broken (the download link off of the games list page works ok though).

But then again, some peoples opinions might be more valuable than others... It's debatable both ways I think. What I'm leaning towards now is only listing the descriptions and members name, but ommitting the ones that were left out and the score ratings.

Ok, so it has been ages but I have finally come back around to this.

The Other's opinions section is now a lot less cryptic and stars are showing. Not that this is a huge accomplishment. But it has been done.

I am not sure why this turned into such a hard job, but I have got the fan games now sortable by rating again. It is an option that went away for a while during the redesign.

It's good though that I had to start over on how it was doing it. There was a bug in the old logic that would allow for ratings to be overlooked. It now appears bug free and accurate.

Rate away.
