The Detective League / [Groupees] Re: Bundle pre-orders

Note: preorders just started for the (allegedly) final Be Mine bundle.
I think I'm gonna buy it, just to pay my respects to that fine series.

Fixed the problem again.
As I suspected, the site page no longer needs to be decompressed after loading it. Instead of removing my code, I added some extra code to determine whether the page is decompressed or not, this should be enough to make it work every time. :)

FIX: Tag pages had become too slow to load due to the current size of the database (which is four times than when I first wrote the website.) I've tweaked my tag sorting method to ensure I could now freely go through the most common tags (Action, Adventure...), which tended to crash the page.

Also, I added game descriptions on more game lists-- /tag/ pages, /games/ and so on. I tweaked my code to make it usable on mobile devices. Unfortunately, it also created issues with the vertical alignment of game titles when there's no associated description. I don't know whethere I should bother to fix that, though...

Note: I've tested on mobile and there are issues. I'll have to work on them...
I don't know why I'm doing all of that. It's not triggering any interest... Dunno if I'm heading in the right direction.

NEW: Related items now show their own descriptions in game pages.
(limited to 250 chars on desktop browsers, and 100 chars on mobile browsers or when there are more than 100 items in that category.)

It sounds easy, but I had a real hard time debugging some of the visual alignments for these. Meh...

I'll have to check again. Maybe they stopped serving gzipped pages... Steamtrades isn't cooperating or something.

At worst, I have the ability to disable wysywyg for everyone.

Perhaps in 24 hours?

Most of the time I resorted to using preview, which automatically goes into WYSIWYG.
If Preview goes into WYSYWYG mode, then it's on by default.
Just go there and disable WYSYWYG, save and try again.

Is this the expected behaviour when using this mode? It shouldn't change the font size or the paragraph spacing on either mode.
I've never experienced any issues with Wysywyg, which is why I didn't "fix" it.
Same with the co-author of Wedge, I guess.
Then again, we were both strong defenders of non-Wysywyg.
And these days, I'd be strongly in favor of dropping Wysywyg (preview is fine if you need it), and replace the traditional bbcode with Markdown, or at least a subset of it. People are starting to get comfortable with it, if only for _italics_ and *bold*.

NEW: Game pages will now list related entries using the same code path as generic game lists.
- If there are 10 entries or less in a related category, they'll be shown using a banner.
- If there are more, they'll be shown without a banner, so it'll look very similar to what it used to look like, with the addition of card counts and some details like current price.

PS: I'm open to showing the banners on a higher number of related entries.

:edit: Here's Portal 2, a very good example with all three categories, one of which has more than 10 entries. As you can see, it's very 'readable', and allows you to quickly find outdated products (i.e. the ones without a proper banner).

The trailers look pretty cool. Especially that they are freely movable.
Note: while they are freely movable in Firefox as well, it has two limitations because it doesn't support mousedown and mousemove events on video tags. As I said, you can't move the video by dragging it, you have to drag the text below the video. And secondly, if you click on a video in the background to play it, it'll play, but it won't show on top of the previous video, you'll have to move the previous video aside. I could fix that one by putting the mousedown event on the bottom text as well, but... Well, man, it's a Firefox bug. I can't fix everything for them.

Also-- I fixed some game pages that used to have 2 videos and suddenly starting just having one again.

I really don't understand the issue here. Can you try with a different browser..?
Are you sure you're in non-wysywyg mode in the editor?

Are they added automatically to every game page?
Yes, because BVG started making them 'public' (previously they were non-guests only and I didn't want to scrape it with a hack, gotta respect that).
If a video isn't online for a game, check back in a few days.
Also, at some point I'll switch to getting video URLs from the Steam API itself. I just need to finish that scraper. It's based on very old code I wrote in 2017 and was buggy. I made so many changes to my scrapers, I'm probably better off restarting from scratch or close to.
When I'm using the Steam API path, I'll be able to store all trailers for all games.

I don't care about IE. I only care about making the site work on it, doesn't have to look good.
I don't understand your issue... Are you using WYSYWYG mode, perchance? Either way, your post above is the exact same size as mine.

FIX: On game pages with two videos, you can now click any of the videos to have it show up on top of the other one. Up until now, the first video in the list would always be behind the other ones, regardless of whether your clicked it first or last.
(Also fixed a JS error on some browsers.)

FIX (not important at all, though): Firefox 55 (a while ago!) added support for proper -moz-appearance: none on checkboxes, so I'm now using the Chrome path for Firefox 55+ and you should see proper styling on checkboxes now, rather than some weird JavaScript and CSS hack.
