Backgammon Studio keeps improving and today I have updated the version number to 3.4 with these fine improvements:
Backgammon Studio 3.4
Improvements since 3.3:
Backgammon Studio went past 1000 users a couple of weeks ago which is sweet! Maria Petrova Rolovic (MRolovic) has been trying to get all her friends to join Backgammon Studio which is just awesome!
Some users have used an incorrect email address when registering which caused the email verification mail to never arrive. While others may have had other problems. If you do have problems registering please email me (email@example.com) and I'll help you out!
The number of training tracks has reached 60! Pretty good I think and they are good fun to test your skills against! They are very difficult so don't get too frustrated if you have problems getting into the top 5. The action training section is a much less cruel place to start your training.
Cube training is a new section where the focus is on cube handling given different scores. As you increase level the cube errors gets gradually smaller.
New action tags keep showing up! They are useful in creating training tracks and when searching for specific types of positions. And there is a wonderful amount of possibilities in Backgammon so I suspect more will show up!
The number of private shared databases keeps growing and it became obvious that having a separate button for each database was impractical. It is now a single button where you can select which database to use. If you would like a private database for your club or organization let me know and I'll see what I can do.
When playing online matches on a mobile phone you may want to have a board that is as large as possible so I have added an option to use a 'Expanded board'.
The space for the moves list does become rather small but that is the tradeoff here. You can open a full screen chat window with the speech bubble. This button should highlight (with an audio effect also) when your opponent sends you a message (or some other message appears).. The shrink button in the lower right corner lowers the chat window again.
The average PR player overview section has become a joy to use as more data is cached. You may get one initial delay if you try to get some data for a year where the data hasn't been generated yet but after that it should be fairly instatnt.
Online match play
Online match play isn't the main feature of Backgammon Studio but more people has started to try it out which is cool! I guess the trick is to find someone to play against and your best bet is to bring a friend! When both are logged on you need to find a users list to challenge your opponent to a match. Originally the 'Showtime!' section was used to find opponents:
But you can also use the chat home screen which has the same users list and server chat:
But now you can also open up a users list from anywhere (on desktop) by clicking ctrl-u:
And you can even open the server chat dialog which also has a users button:
You can move these away and keep (one or both of) them open while navigating elsewhere on Backgammon Studio and then watch when someone you'd love to play against arrives.
Clicking on a username will open the duel dialog where you can set what type of match and match length you want to play. The old 10 position duel should still work although I haven't tried it in ages...
Do try it out! At least the consultation match with running PR is different from what you can find on other backgammon servers!
As a christmas gift I have opened up all 60 training tracks so everyone can try them out! Normally only half of them are available for non premium users. Actually I opened this gift a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy it while it lasts!
