Nice to see you making games again. I like how this checker game looks like. :)

Yeah, there probably was a power outage that caused the server go down. The problem would probably be fixed by simply pressing the power button on it, but Jokeriske won't be home till Thursday and the server is at his house.

It should be back online by Thursday evening though.

EDIT: @Jokeriske managed to solve the problem early. The server is back online.

The website is back up.

Oh wait, this is online multiplayer? O.O Nice. I thought both players had to play on the same PC, with one player using the keyboard at a time.

Are we supposed to be able to play against ourselves from two different browser tabs with the same IP address, though? :trollface: (I guess it's cool tho since this allowed me to try the game before I could find an actual opponent to play with)

I don't see any reason to block that. The IP address generally points to the router, so blocking players with the same ip would also block players on the same network. Being able to play against yourself also doesn't give you any unfair advantage since there is no online ranking or anything.

And perhaps most important: allowing this makes it a lot easier to test this game ;)
