0 Minute Boot?: 2/13/2012 22:55:09

I was playing a 24 FFA game, and hadn't noticed I was booted until I realized I hadn't seen the game come up in a while. I had been checking WL every day, so I didn't think I could have missed playing in this game. I went back into the history to see when I was booted, and found the message saying I was noted "after not taking my turn for 0 minutes." The same thing happened to another player, and I'm not sure how or why. Any insights?

Turn 22 and 26.

It refers to the time after the boot time is crossed. So, if the boot time is 10 minutes and you get booted the moment they can boot you, it'll say "after 0 minutes". Probably to make sure people understand you can freely take your turn within the boot time.

There's a bug that makes it show "Booted in 0 minutes". This only happens on games where booted players are configured to turn into AIs.

This bug will be fixed in the next release. See http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread.aspx?ThreadID=2923

The bug just makes it show the wrong duration. Everyone that got booted really was over the boot time, it just isn't showing it correctly when they're changed into AIs.

Interesting. Must be that the majority of games I've played allows for booted players to turn into AIs.

Okay, but I'm still confused as to why it happens to some and not others, although that's not quite so important, I guess

I also noticed, and forgot if this was mentioned or not...
when you get booted and you are replaced with an AI, your last 10 turns instantly go to *no activity* I personally like to see when someone boots me if perhaps I had had a trend going, and I can understand better why they felt compelled to do it.

not a big issue, but still bugs me..
