Hi :)

Just posted this suggestion on uservoice:

Match notes for a specific game

It would be helpful to be able to keep notes on a specific match being played out, especially for multi-day games.

I believe this could be easily and quickly accomplished by allowing players to send private notes to themselves.

If you agree this idea would be helpful and relatively easy to implement then I encourage you to vote it up:

See you later (in a game, hopefully) :)

Go the private notes for yourself, for example, yours would be https://www.warlight.net/Discussion/Notes?p=260469. (You can't access this page on your profile, only directly though URLs.) I'm not sure if there is a limit of how much data you can post and if there is a limit, I don't know what the limit is.

Thanks Dan :)

I already knew about that. However, it does not allow for specific notes for a specific match.

For example you may want to keep notes on a specific strategy you're trying to play out on this specific match with specific settings.

Just think it would be helpful. Hoping others agree...

The trick is to declare 1vs1s as teamgames with teams of the size 1. Then you get a teamchat where you can write down notes. The MDL uses this concept already

Awesome! Are you a WL programmer, Dan?

I see how that would work, MoD. Will keep that in mind for future games I create. Seems like a bit of hack, however: creating teams of one just to be able to keep personal notes for a specific game, don't you think?

Well there is no disadvantage by creating and saving templates this way. I just think it's no high priority for fizzer since there is a workaround

If you're still interested in making notes without the use of team chat, you can use https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/32269-private-notes-4-games.

You will need to install a 'user script manager' as described on https://greasyfork.org/en/ for the script to be installed and take affect.

Note:
You need to install the script and user script manager per browser you use.
When a game loads, the script needs to read the game notes in a new tab. Don't close this tab as it may make the wrong note options appear. (This tab closes automatically.)
When you create or modify a note, a new tab is opened momentarily to allow a note to be created/modified and then saved. Don't close this tab manually, it closes automatically.

Thanks Dan!

I prefer using Chrome in incognito mode. Will that bugger up the user script?

Np. I don't see why that mode would cause the script to not work. If it doesn't work correctly, let me know :)

Installed, Dan. When I open a game from the page displaying a list of open multiplayer games I briefly see a new tab open with a text box much like the forum one I'm writing in now. I emphasize *briefly* because the tab closes itself very quickly. Then the game appears as it normally does. I am assuming the notes tab is supposed to stay open, correct?

That's the script reading the notes. It needs to open your notes in a new tab, read the notes and then when it finishes reading the notes, the private notes tab closes.

To create a note:
1. Open a game
2. Click on the ▼ in the top right bar that says your name, level, coins etc.
3. Click on Create Note.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions.

To modify a note:
1. Open a game
2. Click on the ▼ in the top right bar that says your name, level, coins etc.
3. Click on Modify Note.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions.

To view a note:
1. Open a game
2. Click on the ▼ in the top right bar that says your name, level, coins etc.
3. Click on View Note.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions.

I see the 'Create Game Notes' now on the drop down, and after clicking it I get an input box prompting me for a title. On the first attempt I then got a text box like the one I'm typing in now. I entered 'test' and submitted/saved the changes. Then I closed all and reloaded the game. The drop down still showed 'Create Game Notes' only now (and on the next 9 attempts) I'm back to the textbox flashing briefly on a new tab and then automatically closing.

It worked on my end fine on Win10 Firefox 54 before I released it.
What browser are you using and which version?

In the code, it clearly says for the game notes to appear on the tab that the game is on and it should never close automatically.

Edit:
Fixed bug that caused game notes to not be read correctly.
Fixed bug that caused game notes to not be created correctly.
Fixed bug that caused modified game notes to not be saved. (You have to close the modified note window manually to prevent this bug).

If you already have existing game notes, before the note 'ends', add a new line and then type End of game GameID notes.
E.g.
End of game 13884864 notes

Success! (mostly).

After I updated the script in TamperMonkey I now see 'View Notes' and 'Edit Notes' in the dropdown of a game where I have previously created a game notes instance.

Thank you, Dan!

Now, there is still a problem with 'View Notes.' Specifically, it briefly opens and closes a browser tab but I do not see anything else.

However 'Edit Notes' allows me to view the notes and then there is an 'Edit' button if I wish to make any changes. This works fine! I suggest simply changing 'Edit Notes' to 'Edit/View Notes' and remove the existing 'View Notes' from the dropdown.

You rock, Dan!

View notes should work a bit better now.

Thanks.
