• Synchronetris - Uncaught exception from bbs.xtrn_sec()

    From Nightfox@VERT/DIGDIST to All on Sunday, January 05, 2014 21:25:35
    Hi all,

    Today I updated my files in sbbs/xtrn from the Synchronet CVS repository, and I set up Synchronetris on my BBS. I have a JavaScript command shell which calls bbs.xtrn_sec() to go into the external programs area. When I try to run Synchronetris, I get an error, apparently from bbs.xtrn_sec() (based on the reported line number in my command shell) that says "uncaught exception: socket disconnected". Does anyone know what might cause that?

    that's your command shell inheriting the exception, which is actually being thrown by the game. are you running your own instance of json-service.js in services.ini? is that where the game's server.ini file is pointing?

    in the event you are pointed at my server, ill check my logs to see if something went wrong.

    I didn't know json-service.js had to be running. I followed the instructions in sysop.doc, and it does not mention json-service or configuring the game to point to a server. It simply explains how to set up tetris.js in SCFG.

    I am running json-service.js in my services.ini, and my server.ini for Synchronetris is pointed to localhost (I left it as the default). I get the "socket disconnected" exception even with that configuration.

    interbbs.doc has more information.. i suppose that's not a very good place for local setup instructions.. i'll ponder that today..

    make sure the synchronetris section is on json-service.ini and is uncommented

    Yeah, I was looking at the sysop.doc that was included in the synchronetris directory. I'd think that would be the most logical place for documentation for all that is needed to set up the door game.

    I don't think it does, by default netris connects to the broken bubble's server. Might try looking at the default .ini settings on the cvs server and set your board to that.

    My server.ini is:

    host=bbs.thebrokenbubble.com
    port=10088
    autoupdate=true

    Connects and plays on TBB.

    This was true at one point, but is no longer the case. Pretty much every JSON-DB enabled game in the CVS defaults to looking for a JSON server at 'localhost' by default now.

    well, the sysop.doc and interbbs.doc are carry-overs from when i was using a different type of interbbs service (a time when running locally did not require you to have a local service running)

    I will update them today at some point

    If Synchronetris absolutely requires a server of some sort, I think sysop.doc should mention that and point sysops to the right direction to get it set up correctly - at least it should refer the sysop to interbbs.doc to continue the setup. Otherwise a sysop might not realize that there is any additional setup necessary beyond getting Synchronetris set up in SCFG.
