Player doesn't know it's time for a game or that they failed to pass their turn.... game hangs or they get booted.

Bad for real-time games.

It has one. You will hear a chime whenever the turn advances for a game you have open if sounds are enabled in the top right corner.

it's actually a very effective notification. The only issue is sometimes I notice it lags. Say if I was in a game and it advances from turn one to turn two and I was on another web page not looking at warlight, I'll often hear the chime and immediately return to warlight to find that the turn has been in session for 2-3minutes already.

Not a big issue at all. Just something I've noticed ^^

2-3 minutes? hmm.. I personally don't have an active sound driver atm, just headphones that act like it, so rarely hear sounds, but i would of figured the sound would occur when the map refreshes, which will not usually be when the turn actually ends...

That's not the sound lagging. The game refreshes on a timer. You can see the refresh button in the bottom left portion of the screen and the little bar that goes across it representing the timer. The turn might end, but you won't know until the game actually refreshes, once the refresh timer reaches the end. You can manually refresh it yourself by clicking the button, or just wait it out.

The end turn sound doesn't seem to solve the issue with all fast games.
It's happened a number of times where people miss the end turn timer and the game ends up hanging. There is, currently, no way to effectively nudge someone in a real-time game.

Sorry for my tone. Does that make any sense to you Randy? I could list some of the issues in more detail if that would help.

they have also turned their sound off or just left the computer.

T agree that it would be very helpful to have a sound notification when the direct boot time has been reached (or maybe better would be when you are within 1 minute of the direct boot time and have not submitted orders yet). I actually posted this idea on the Uservoice site a while back: http://warlight.uservoice.com/forums/77051-warlight-features/suggestions/1101223-additional-sound-notifications

Ideally, Warlight needs an overhaul (mostly just a bunch of small features; nothing really major) to improve fast gameplay. I wonder if Randy is considering doing this at some point?
