Go games "display"

First allow me to say how much I enjoy playing chess & go on this site. Keep up the very good work!

Would it be possible to mark or display on the board when playin Go the piece that was last moved?

Also on other sites the option to flip the board is present. On this site the board is already fliped when playing white. Is this needed? If you download the .sgf to a viewer it will not show the game the same way round.

We have to press "send" and then "next". Is it possible to have an option included where after pressing "send" you go automatically to the next game?

Update : last move (Go)

Hello Graham, thanks :)

I just updated the display of Go games, the last move is now marked in red.

Boards are fliped because it's more logical at chess (and most games), to be nearer "reality". I prefer all games displayed the same way, sorry :/

At last, about going automatically to the next game, that's quite right but the confirmation page ('Your move has been sent') may avoid some "problems"... I prefer this way, unless many players ask for this change.

Kind regards.

Go games "display"

Thx Thibault , for displaying the last move in red , you make my day :) Speaking about improving this site , i must say that it would be better if the opponent message will be displayed at the top - i usually missed them :(

Red mark + Message

Graham, really ? Please note the red mark is only displayed on the 'move' page, when you're to play a move. (not in the viewer page ie.)

Sebastian, that's quite right, messages may be forgotten on the 'move' page... But I thought it would be hard not to see it on the 'move_confirm' (cf. url) page, above the 'send' button... That's a problem to displace the board at the bottom IMO :/ And a popup window wouldn't be appreciated... I have no better idea at this time.

Thanks for feedback.

No marked move for me :(

I'm the one who requested the last move be marked but my games haven't had the mark so far. Is this my punishment ;)

All OK thanks

Browser problem

Thibault, That I don't see the opponents highlighted last move is apparently the fault of my browser since it works fine using IE on someone else's computer. However my browser *does* display the highlight on my move just before I send it. Are the two highlights done by different methods? I can't think of any other reason why my browser would display one but not the other.

Browser problem

Definitely not. Same method... I do not understand. It works fine on Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. What's your browser ?

Thanks for feedback.

Browser problem

I'm using Camino on a Mac. Camino is another Netscape spin-off, like Firefox, but offers better integration with OS X. I'll send the Camino team a note about this. Thanks.

Now it works in Camino!

Hi Thibault, Did you change anything just now (about 0600 Monday, 7 Nov)? Suddenly, with nothing different in my setup, I see the red Go move in the Camino browser. Regards, Don

Now it works in Camino!

Hi Don... I did not change anything in this part of the program. Very strange !?

Now it works in Camino!

For whatever strange reason, it now is working for me. Thanks!
