Poker bug today : Cards repeating...

Hello all... There was a quite strange problem with a PHP file for a few hours (or a bug but I can't see it yet - particularly as I did not change anything to the code), cards may have been always the same in some games while going backwards in the game looked strange too. I may have solved the problem with a backup but now the cards may have changed (actually corrected) in these games.

I check... if everything's ok now. Sorry for the inconvenience :/

The "invisible" bug

Well, after 4 hours of work I found what was finally a human error, mine of course... One of the hardest situation I've had to understand :/

The story for coders, kind of butterfly effect : Weeks, maybe months ago, for some reason I suppose I've deleted an essential line in a file that created an invisible "bug" (no consequences) in all games but also a real bug for poker, but worst, for some reason I did not update the bugged file ! So the site worked well until yesterday when I finally updated the file for a minor change (nothing about the actual problem), so I had no clue about what happened...

Everything should be ok now, but some cards may have changed in a few games.

Bad day... Sorry about that.

Most bugs are caused...

... by making changes to working code. Another for the quote file ;-)
