I redid the chat system, so now we shouldn't have as many time-outs:

http://bitcoinsurf.net/doublechat

Just enter a Username and leave the password field blank and YOU ARE IN.

I have a Public Chat, and a Technical Support Chat, so you can communicate better with NothinG during game resets if you experience problems.

ENJOY!

Yea everyone is sleeping. I'm pretty sure the list will double. If history shows anything, the list hit that double point from yesterday's game when it was about 7 hours left.

I don't think daily scheduled resets are a good idea. The time period is too short and in the end everyone will just join in with automated bots paying the first second of the new round.

Heh, I'd thought about making a bot to do it.... perhaps a CAPTCHA needs to be put in place for submitting your entry, this should prevent any bots from entering.  Plus there are tons of easy to use CAPTCHA services out there.

This will still give a huge advantage to people living in preferable timezones.

I have a question:

in total, people paid 83.52 BTC today. Of this, 82.6848 goes to the pot (1% fee).
also, 74,68 BTC have been sent to people (double the amount of all players listed as doubled) (your example shows your fee going back to the pot, which is a bit strange, so I didn't include it).
so the pot should contain 8.0048 BTC, right? The site lists the pot as 5.6084, so where did the other 2.4 go?

Is my math wrong somewhere?

Going to restate what he said with my math:
83.52 put into the pot so far
Take away the 1% fee leaves the pot at 82.6848
Green entries total to 37.34
This means a total payout of 74.68

Total put in - total payout  (should) = current pot
82.6848 - 74.68 =\= 5.6048

So looks like yorick was correct in his math.

The pot shows the 1% taken away, but when I send people the money, I re-calculate based on what they put in.
Code:
$amount2send = ($Amount*2) - ($Amount/100);
mbc_spend($Address,$amount2send,"[BitDouble]: Payout!","");
$Amount = what they paid.

Yeah, there is a captcha when you pay.

I honestly don't care if people use bots to pay.
[Edit]: Now that I thought about it (still waking up), bots probably won't be a good idea. If the game is in the middle of restarting; then the payment may get lost. So, if the bot send the payment while the game is "supposedly offline" looks like I just got a new donation. So, script carefully! Grin

Any news on my 1.5? I got a confirmation on the payment page, but I have no idea how the rest works. Did it get sent to your wallet and was ignored by the script, or is there some function in the SCI that holds incoming payments if they are at the wrong amount?

I'm only out .51 if I include the first double, but I imagine it could be worse for someone who gets the decimal point wrong and sends ten times their intended amount.

It states, that you need to pay exactly what it shows.
I don't want to be rude, but that's honestly your mistake.

I made a spreadsheet calculating your payouts:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ag7eUBbWmtR4dERnSkUxdVRXbk5fWlRneFlwTVhaUVE&hl=en_US&authkey=CMm1j4YK

Still looks like some is missing, please let me know if I did any of the math wrong.

I know it's my mistake. And I'm sure it's one that will be repeated by someone else. I'm guessing your reason for the transaction in system to get the bids into the table in the order they were entered rather than by network timestamp, and that's a good idea, but wouldn't it be possible to add a few lines for protection? If sent amount is lower it's ignored, if it's higher the script enters the intended 1btc and keeps the excess .5 as a bonus?

Or simply set something up that returns any invalid payments minus a 5-10% processing fee that goes to you or the pool.

The pot shows how much there is to payback.
The pot calculates 1% already taken out of the equation.
When I send people the money, I am re-calculating their price based on how much they put in instead of relying on the Bank.
The Bank allows me to know how much to split among the players who haven't gotten paid at the end of the game.
