CB on FB (very beta) (in General)


AdminJonathan January 16 2008 12:22 AM EST

You can now add CB as a facebook app here.

"very beta" means I'm aware there are fairly serious problems, such as the fight page looking even uglier than usual in the constricted width fb imposes, and no way to associate an existing cb account with your fb account.

go ahead and test it out if you're curious. just post your fb-cb username in this thread and we'll merge them or throw them away when you're done testing.

actually don't sign me up, I don't want to get an error like Novice >.<

Lumpy Koala January 16 2008 12:48 AM EST

Wait... i tried but the first page i get is "Welcome to Carnage Blender" which I haven't seen it for like 4 years... :P So I decided to just log out.... don't think it's meant for old players hehe

I made it back into CB in via IE... guess I'll close FF and try again

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 12:56 AM EST

If you get stuck, going here should log you out of both.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 16 2008 12:58 AM EST

I seem to be unable to login via www.carnageblender.com, it keeps bouncing me to secondary login page at http://www.carnageblender.com/register/index.tcl?return_url=%2fmain%2etcl

which is the same page that face book brings up...

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 1:01 AM EST

Weird OB, I can neither reproduce your error nor find it in the logs.

Is it actually working for anyone but me?

QBOddBird January 16 2008 1:02 AM EST

I can't get in via IE or FF. Trying again with FF, going to try that link novvy just posted.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 16 2008 1:03 AM EST

I still can't get in via www anymore and can't login via facebook as my main account. I'd try my FB account but I don't know what email address to use for login.

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 1:04 AM EST

did you try the logout link I posted?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 16 2008 1:06 AM EST

Yes, however I'm not actually logged in... so it doesn't work.

Any ideas?

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 1:19 AM EST

Okay, you should be able to login now at either the front page or "secondary" login form.

You had a "logout" cookie set from carnageblender.com, and it was making CB not see the "login" cookie from www.carnageblender.com. Or possibly vice versa.

CB now always set cookie domain to carnageblender.com no matter which url you use to access it.

Mikel January 16 2008 1:22 AM EST

One suggestion that will help a bit.
Put a space at the top row of the Frame.

Nope, OB:

Using IE 6 the active char/opponents thing stays on top of the auctions, clan etc flyouts.

Mikel January 16 2008 2:10 AM EST

All is good here. :)

and there's not log out button on the FB Site. Kinda made it hard to get back to here.. Just make sure you use this, other wise you could get stuck in there.

http://www.carnageblender.com/register/logout.tcl

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 2:16 AM EST

OB: in the back and forth earlier you seem to have managed to create a user account but not get your first char autocreated. i've fixed the sidebar but you'll have to manually create a character.

Rubberduck: fb users are mostly computer-literate, do we really have to worry about IE6 compatibility? :)

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 2:17 AM EST

I'm not sure how FB logout is supposed to work honestly. There is a FB "log out" button there but how CB is supposed to know to log the guy out too, I don't know.

Mikel January 16 2008 2:17 AM EST

On a sidenote:
How is this going to effect Rentals, Auctions, player to player transfers etc if you get merged?

IE Should we have no Auctions/Rentals/gear loaned before a merge is attempted?

QBOddBird January 16 2008 2:18 AM EST

Alright, logging out to test and see if it works. Thanks, Jonathan!

[P]Mitt January 16 2008 2:19 AM EST

okay, so I used the logout link to log both accounts out. A few things that I noticed...

You can log into CB inside the facebook app with your CB account, using your email and password. If you do this, you get the sidebar-version of CB that we all know and love. (Which has the logout link)

You can not post on the forums using a FB-registered account, as you can not post with an account with an unconfirmed email. I was able to bypass this by manually changing my email through the settings page. But I can not change my password... as I do not know my password.

Once I log out of CB (inside the FB frame), the "Login with Facebook Account) link does not work. But I can still log in with this account.

So long for my Mitt's FB Account.... account. I can't get back into it; No top link bar...

Picasso January 16 2008 2:21 AM EST

QBOddBird January 16 2008 2:23 AM EST

Hurray! I have a new bug. (surprise surprise?)

The connection was reset.




The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.



* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.


----------Obtained every time. I'm not sure if it was because you were working on the server, but all other FB-CBers were discussing and etc. in Chat as though there were no problems.

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 2:24 AM EST

Mitt: that is good testing.

Picasso: my pic's been on my blog for a while too.

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 2:26 AM EST

OB: I'm done for the night. Clearly your account needs to be taken out and shot. I can't even guess what weird state it's in now. Maybe I'll nuke it in the morning so you can start fresh.

The "Go Back" link after a there is a problem updating basic info (e-mail already in use) produces a server error.

I could also only see the bottom half of the Stores, Recent Battles, Business, Auctions etc. links at the top of the screen.

And that's cool Jon, guess I missed that when I took a break.

VerifexMulti January 16 2008 2:54 AM EST

VerifexMulti is my second account, you can erase it or merge it into my other account. Whoa, this is kinda freaky, it logged me out of CB and into the FB thing. Wild!

VerifexMulti January 16 2008 2:55 AM EST

The verify the email address alert screen in forum has a link that says "Go back" to verify email address, and when you click it it throws a "server error"

maulaxe January 16 2008 3:00 AM EST

when first adding the FB app, the link to go back and provide an account name shorter than 24 characters leads to an error page.
the first page after entering a long name:
"Please correct a problem
Your name is longer than the 24 characters allowed
Please go back, correct this problem, and resubmit your entry.
Thank you. "

the link being:
http://www.carnageblender.com/register/fb-user-new-2.tcl#
and the error page saying:
" "# name" required but not supplied
# "fb_user_id" required but not supplied
# "fb_session_key" required but not supplied "

Mitt's FB Account January 16 2008 3:25 AM EST

I found a way to log back in once you set your email account for the facebook account.

Even though you never set a password, the server, I guess, automatically creates one for you. You can have the server email you the password it created for you :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 16 2008 3:35 AM EST

This rocks!

How long till an awesome looking char display on the profiles?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] January 16 2008 3:44 AM EST

There are quite a few pages you can set up on a Facebook application, I tried setting one up a couple months ago. The "token" system it uses is much different from CB's username/password setup, but maybe the "login" page for facebook users who are just adding the application could have a choice to "link" the account to their existing account.

The only problem is that Facebook manages pretty much the entire authentication process, and if you open the page without Facebook around it, CB has no way of knowing it. (without doing some crude "frame checking" code that logs out the user on exit)

I think that might be pretty inelegant, but I don't see any other way to maintain Facebook and regular account logins concurrently.

Other then that, I just wanna say bravo Jon, the facebook implementation is pretty slick. I added it a few minutes ago, and I'll play with my own test app to test what works my side. :)

Maulicious impersonat January 16 2008 3:47 AM EST

The tabs in the store do not work correctly, all I can see is 'melee' ... even if I go into the armor store. luckily(?) in the armor store there are no weapons to buy, even thought the tab says there are. So it is only half wrong...

Burn the multi!

Once you buy a better base weapon, the rest of the store/tabs should open up.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] January 16 2008 8:44 AM EST


I am no longer "timed out" of CB. If I wander off for ... 8 hrs. ... when I come back, I don't have to log back in. Is this a new "feature"?

Relic January 16 2008 9:28 AM EST

OK, I tried the FB app, also, my name on there is Havoc.

A few problems I noticed; if I clicked fight from anywhere other than the home page it gave me an error page. Also, I did a search and found a user for the tutorial and when I clicked back to home and tried to fight again, when I clicked fight, it took me to the search results page, I could not get back to the fight screen.

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 10:17 AM EST

I added a "delete cookies" link to the secondary login page. If you can't login to one of [fb account, normal cb account], hit that. (Now that the cookie domain is standardized it shouldn't be necessary more than once.)

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] January 16 2008 10:38 AM EST

It seemed like my FB account really didnt want my main account running at the same time. My FB account kept taking over my main's screen, (FB account Paul_Jones Goals popping up on my {cb1}smallpau1 "Home").

sutekh138 January 16 2008 10:55 AM EST

Sutekh here, 137 (CB) and 138 (FB). Love it! Tutorial text is scrunchy, but I assume that is part of the real estate crunch. Love the baby chat!

sutekh138 January 16 2008 10:56 AM EST

Bast, when the checkmark to stay logged in on this computer was default checked, it seemed to actually start working. It had never worked for me before. So yes, I stopped having to log in. Just log out and log back in, making sure the checkbox is NOT checked, and it will be back to regular timeouts...

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 11:03 AM EST

> It seemed like my FB account really didnt want my main account running at the same time

Yes, you can only be logged in to one account (per browser) at a time.

Maulicious impersonat January 16 2008 11:14 AM EST

I checked back after a few hours and noticed that the stores were fixed. I had not changed anything besides exiting FB and re-logging in.
If it makes any difference, I have not bought a better base weapon, but had previously (even before having checked the stores before) forged the initial whip and fought a few battles.

other than the store issue having fixed itself, I note that the "sidebar" on the top looks just fine when viewed in IE6 through Firefox's IEtab addon; but all the text is too expansive to be seen in Firefox itself. you can still get there by searching the page text, highlighting the link, and hitting enter...

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 11:19 AM EST

> all the text is too expansive to be seen in Firefox itself

please mail me a screenshot.

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 11:20 AM EST

> Tutorial text is scrunchy

It should be scrunchy but visible. If there's a specific section where you can see the text being cut off at the bottom, let me know.

QBsutekh137 January 16 2008 11:29 AM EST

I know the very first tutorial blurb was cut off on the bottom, but I may have had screen fonts turned up one notch (not sure if that would affect). I can't re-do that part now, but I am pretty sure those first, lengthy blurbs were getting cut off.

Tom January 16 2008 11:30 AM EST

Signed up to the FB CB. I have to say Jon, I'm impressed. It may look... different, but it still offers CB! It's a great way for new members to be poached!! Good work!

My name on there is Tom... I think? Don't bother merging I'm only on there to have a peek :P

maulaxe January 16 2008 12:16 PM EST

After some messing around with font sizes, I think I discovered that the problem is that my monitor is too big.
I have a 17'' widescreen, and with the font size in FF set to a comfortable, non-squinty size, the 'opponents' box of the "sidebar" gets pushed to a second line - but the frame is not resized, so all that is visible is one of the lines at a time. I can fix it by going down a size and reloading.

This isn't a real problem, but perhaps given the size of the frame that FB allows, does the text of "Higher Lower Reset Specify..." really need to be as large as it seems?

here is a screenshot

Blargeh January 16 2008 1:04 PM EST

my FB name is blargeh, and this will be very interesting to the future of CB.

AdminJonathan January 16 2008 1:10 PM EST

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] January 16 2008 1:12 PM EST

Next step in making CB Facebook friendly: Making an "invite friends" interface, so we can get referral cash. ;) Although linking Facebook/cb accounts is probably more of a priority right now. ;)

Pssst...chat is resizable, just like on here.

While I am around the thread...anyway to move the application around in the Facebook window? It slightly overlaps the top tool bar in mine, which is not catastrophic, but annoying.

maulaxe January 16 2008 8:32 PM EST

my point about the font sizes and posting a picture is that whatever size I like to have it at can change a lot and still be fine to view CB in, but that the relative sizes of some of the fonts ended up looking pretty ridiculous.

but I think that no longer has anything to do with FB in particular, so I'll shut up about it.

More to come

no nub or ncb for fb users? should i be allowed to post in forums without having my email address verified first?

drudge[FB] January 17 2008 4:17 PM EST

either fb users are getting no ads in battle or my ad-blocker is stopping it.

Strange issue, but the winning streak list seems diffferent on FB vs. normal. Koy was not at the top of the FB fight list even though his stats were up to date and had 100% wins. Is that a realm thing? Just never experienced that before...

sutekh138 January 17 2008 4:46 PM EST

Yeah, just a realm issue, I guess... All the streaks are for new players... Sorry to bother...

Signed up as Logan666FB. I didn't logout of this account when I created the Facebook account and was in chat with both accounts open at the same time.

BTW Facebook is not in the spellchecker.

Ok the CB cookies need to be redone, I tried logging in earlier using the IP address of CB and that keeps throwing me back to:
http://69.60.124.245/register/index.tcl?return_url=%2fmain%2etcl
I deleted the old cookies (the ones before facebook) I could always log in with the old cookies. But with facebook I can't seem to enter the site as it is using the IP address and (im very ashamed to say) IE5

AdminJonathan January 17 2008 10:00 PM EST

If I allow multiple cookie domains we're back to people stabbing themselves in the face mixing fb (which always uses the "real" cb domain) and the normal site. It's just not worth the "halp I can't login" nightmares.

Sorry, carnageblender.com cookies are here to stay.

I used to log in via http://127.0.0.1/ -- ie, an ssh tunnel that I used to access CB from places where it was denied. That still works as long asI don't log out from any machine already logged in that way. However, I can't log in anymore doing that. Any suggestions?

AdminJonathan January 18 2008 11:15 AM EST

set carnageblender.com to 127.0.0.1 in etc/hosts

AdminJonathan January 18 2008 12:45 PM EST

(and then access the proxy as carnageblender.com)

After I add the CB application to my FB account, the only way i can log on through FB is if i click the link in my recent news. Going to the application on my profile, it just says "carnage blender".

Also, I'm still experiencing troubles whenever I log on to my FB to log on to "blarg" again. The link provided here is the only way I can get back to blarg.

> Going to the application on my profile, it just says "carnage blender"

you should be able to click "Carnage Blender" under applications on the left of your login page. you're right, the app description page is not very filled-in.

> The link provided here is the only way I can get back to blarg

that's expected; it's not really designed for multi support. :)

I almost have "link existing account to FB" working, which should make this a non-issue.

Blarg January 18 2008 2:20 PM EST

Haha, ok, I understand the multi part, but until the merging of the old accounts to be working with FB, could there be a log out button somewhere in the FB account like here?

Nick Deifel January 18 2008 2:45 PM EST

Nick Deifel is my test account

QBsutekh137 January 18 2008 3:12 PM EST

You can get rid of sutekh138 now, especially if a merge is on the horizon...

are our dedicated multi-hunters still going to be able to see the ip's people are coming from when they use the fb interface or are we going to get some of our most infamous players back in our community with this change?

AdminJonathan January 19 2008 12:42 AM EST

> are our dedicated multi-hunters still going to be able to see the ip

logging in through fb won't obscure your IP.
