    Hey, i need exactly the functionality of: https://github.com/delucis/bgio-effects but without react. I cant find something in the docs but i need something like useEffectListener for plain js... also it seemed when i tested the react version that effects are fireing on every move when used with Ai, so when Ai does its magic it is fired 1000x times not only for the move the Ai then realy does... whould be thankful for every help...

    Did typescript types end up getting implemented? I'm doing the tute in TS, and having to using 'any'. Is it a different import?

    What do most people do with the lobby? Looking at what auth and ids it offers, I implement auth somewhere else to keep track of what games players are in, run that on another service, and then create games using the REST API from the user service?

    is there any ways to get the game started or not???
    at lobby REST api..
    I just wanna make start button at the lobbyContainer
    Kim Kyeseung
    @kimkyeseung

    I got a good idea to solve that problem
    It's put the state of started or not to the first player's meta data

    @kimkyeseung Could you please explain your solution in detail? When and how to update that started state?

    at the joined array, the first index of array is the game host.
    we put the meta data to first User to joined array like this
    {
      playerID: userId,
      credentials,
      data: { started: false}
    }
    and after start button click, we gonna change of firstUser's meta data started: true

    anybody have some general knowledge about the debug console? It doesn't appear to work in remote server configurations was curious if this is a documented limitation? I am developing a fbgio hosted game and discovered this behavior.
    sorry, last post was re: debug LOG tab... which appears to only work in local games.

    @larry801
    "Does no work" is too vague, please describe your issue in detail

    Hey! Are there any projects that use playAgain API that I could check out? My "solution" works but feels really clumsy. I was searching through repos that have bgio as a dependency but wasn't able to find an example.

    @cwatsonc
    @larry801 you want me to open an issue for a general question? or explain here in full with tests as shown in boardgameio/boardgame.io#810? When using the debug console in remote game mode, no history for moves is being accumulated in the debug > Log? Is this expected?
    Chris Swithinbank
    @delucis
    @cwatsonc The next release should improve the debug panel’s Log tab quite a bit for server games with any luck (there were a bunch of issues with both state and rewind). That said, I would still expect the move history to accumulate with the current version — just potentially with some weird gaps.
    cwatsonc
    @cwatsonc
    @delucis thanks, I think I found my issue I am deploying in freeboardgames implementation and was having issues exposing their config as a service on my local workstation. I can see now that the messages should accumulate in this mode. can you identify which release contains the improvements you describe? I'll watch that thread and track when it arrives in FBG's implementation.
    Chris Swithinbank
    @delucis
    @cwatsonc Ah, OK. The fixes are currently unreleased, but will be included in a release within a week or so (might take longer than that for freeboardgames to update to the latest release though). Guess it’ll be either v0.40.1 or v0.41.0.

    Hey all! I would like to implement a "Concede" button in my game. Making the move is easy (ctx.events.endGame({ winner: opponent })), but I would like players to be able to concede at any moment. By default, moves cannot be executed while a player is not active, and thus my players can only concede during their turn. Is there a way to declare that a move can be called at any time, in any phase or stage?

    Hi!
    I'm making a card game, you can can see it in action here and the code here

    I'm having trouble with the AI.

    I'm building a practice mode for single player where the AI makes a random move. The possible moves are listed out fine, problem is, I don't know how to tell it to make a move.

    My idea was to to put the function in the general onEnd attribute. I found a function makeMove in boardgame.io/src/core/action-creators.ts tat might do the trick, but it is not exported. Are there currently any ways I can do this?

    I'm trying to upgrade to v0.41.1 and am getting failures from the game property 'flow' something changed in the API?
    cwatsonc
    @cwatsonc
    is there somewhere in the docs describing this change? In all your examples I see them unwrapping nested props of game.flow is that appropriate for games.flow.movesPerTurn also?

    Hi everyone! First of all, I want to thank the creators of this library. It is super awesome.

    My question is: I'm trying to reuse some moves function already defined for the moves object in stages. I have 2 files: moves.ts and stages.ts

    When I define the stages in stages.ts with moves imported from the moves file, I got this "cannot access [move name] of undefined" error. When I copy the move from moves.ts to stages.ts, it works fine. Why is this happening? I don't have a lot of moves I'm planning to use in stages but if I had hundreds of moves, copy and pasting doesn't really makes sense

    Hi everyone! I'm trying to implement a server version of my game, per the Multiplayer instructions in the documentation, but when I try to run the server, I get this error:

    Error: Cannot find module './Game/Game'
    Require stack:
    - /Users/kylegsessions/projects/ww-ttg/src/server.js
        at Object.<anonymous> (/Users/kylegsessions/projects/ww-ttg/src/server.js:2:24)
        at Generator.next (<anonymous>) {
      code: 'MODULE_NOT_FOUND',
      requireStack: [ '/Users/kylegsessions/projects/ww-ttg/src/server.js' ]
    }

    My server itself is very simple:

    const { Server } = require('boardgame.io/server')
    const { WeedWizard } = require('./Game/Game')
    
    const server = Server({ games: [WeedWizard] })
    
    server.run(8000)

    and here's the game it's trying to access:

    import { Game } from 'boardgame.io'
    ...
    export interface IPlayer { ... }
    export interface IGameState { ... }
    export const WeedWizard: Game = { ... }

    Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on? (If it makes a difference, the server file is .js, but the rest of the project, including the Game file, is .ts/.tsx.)

    Is it possible to access/modify game state in anonymous callback functions within moves? I'm getting the following error when I try to do so:

    TypeError: Cannot perform 'get' on a proxy that has been revoked

    I'm trying to do something like this:

    const moves = {
      moveName: (G: IGameState, ctx: Ctx) => {
        const onSelect = (value:number) => {
          // modify game state in here
          // close modal here
        }
    
        // open modal here
        const modal = Modal.info({
          // modal properties where I gather info from the player
          // modal contains a button that calls the above onSelect method
        })
      }
    }

    If I modify the game state directly within the move itself, it's fine, but when I try to modify it within a callback method like this, I get the above error.

    @kage23
    I solved it by opening the modal and gathering info from the player before I call the actual move.

    I was trying to figure out how to get a hold of the player's name via React. Turns out it's in matchData, which doesn't turn up anywhere in the documentation. It's an array of Server.PlayerMetadata, indexed by the player order. So the current player name is:

        const playerIx = ctx.playOrder.indexOf(playerID);
        const name = matchData[playerIx].name

    (I'm not sure if that's the best way to determine the player index).

    Kyle G Sessions
    @kage23
    Oh cool! I was looking for player names and couldn't find them anywhere within the Game, but I am seeing them in matchData on the gameboard.
    However, whenever I try to use the Lobby (in a React app), all of a sudden endTurn no longer ends the player's turn, so we're just stuck on the first player, in the first phase, forever. But when I use the Client interface instead of Lobby, I don't have this problem. Has anyone else had this experience, or know a workaround?
    Chris Swithinbank
    @delucis
    @kage23 That sounds like the client isn’t successfully connecting to the game server. For multiplayer games, events like ending turns and phases only run on the server, so if the server doesn’t respond, the turn will appear not to end.
    Kyle G Sessions
    @kage23
    @delucis Thanks, that makes sense. Any ideas why it might not be connecting? I'm running a local server, and the Client seems to be connecting to it just fine; it's just the Lobby that's having problems. Here's my current App code, with the working Client in place, and the not-working Lobby commented-out. Do you see anything obvious that I'm missing?
    const NUM_PLAYERS = 3
    
    const WWClient = Client({
      // debug: false,
      game: WeedWizard,
      board: PlayerBoard,
      numPlayers: NUM_PLAYERS,
      multiplayer: SocketIO({ server: 'localhost:8000' })
    })
    
    const App = () => {
      const playerID = window.location.pathname.split('/')[1]
    
      return (
        <WWClient playerID={playerID} />
        // <Lobby
        //   debug
        //   gameComponents={[
        //     { board: PlayerBoard, game: WeedWizard }
        //   ]}
        //   gameServer="http://localhost:8000"
        //   lobbyServer="http://localhost:8000"
        // />
      )
    }
    
    export default App

    @jfengel You can look up a player’s metadata something like

    const playerMetadata = matchData.find(player => player.id == playerID);
    const { name } = playerMetadata;

    matchData is documented in the list of React board props in the client docs.

    jfengel
    @jfengel

    Thank you @delucis . It didn't show up in the search.

    There is a small problem with that find code; PlayerMetadata.id is a number, but playerID is a string. It works with == but not ===.
