You could prevent the above by having the GAME ID as part of the form data. So they have to wait for a round to start before submitting the form which takes them to mybitcoin.com.

eg, form says <input type="hidden" name="gameid" value="7"> so if they hit that submit button at the end of game 7, hoping to get in quick at the start of game 8, then it'll just ignore that payment because it came from game 7.

People will still have to race, but they won't be able to prepare for the race until the game has actually started...

I was thinking about doing that, but the only problem is that their payment WON'T count towards the last game if they submit it after the end-game processing script is run, because the last person in line will get the remaining pot... And their bet won't count towards the new game, because it's marked for the previous round... So their bet will essentially turn into a donation for me, and I feel that in a game of sniping, too many people would end up losing their money and blame me for it.

You could do some stuff with partial association. if($currentRound != $paymentRound), $pot += $bet

Toss those bets into the pot if the round ID doesn't match.

That's no different than what it's doing now.

Are you saying, put the money into the pot, but don't give that person a place in line? Would discourage cheaters.....

Exactly. Of course, we'd have to prevent a positive  pot from forming (everyone paid out, but coins still in the pot).

if($everyone_paid == 1){
   pay_operator($pot);
}

Well, the way it's programmed, the extra pot would go towards people's doubles or the End-Game last person in line, not me.

The scenario I'm talking about would be one where everyone is paid out, and whoever bids next gets doubled if they put in 50% of the pot. We don't want that scenario to occur, due to the potential for abuse.

Another possibility is to have all voided entries go towards a bitcoin lottery jackpot.

I am a bit confused on the King of the Mountain game.  The rules state it is an hourly game, however here it states it is 24 hours and the page time shows 24 hour game(and this is what I thought it was changed to).  At the end of countdown it said it was resetting the game, I put a payment in after 20 seconds+ (registered at 34) and then the game reloaded with all previous bets in place and the timer reset, while my bet is at the bottom.  Did I miss something?

Sorry you got caught up in this, we're on IRC now in #bitcoin-koth on freenode. There seems to be a bug that occurs when both kotm and koth end at the same time, leading to neither ending.


Right now, the current solution:

HerbertFilby:  ok, I will extend King of the Mountain for another 23 hours so people in the chain that bet 3.0 will have a chance to get multiplied, and king of the Hill should be fine at 1am EDT in 50 minutes
[12:11AM] HerbertFilby: I will tweak the cron settings so the games are not executing at the same time, offset it by like a minute
[12:11AM] HerbertFilby: then we will see how tomorrow goes

Yeah, we had a glitch at midnight. When both games were trying to reset, it in fact executed NONE of the resets, which is just odd... I reset the timer on King of the Mountain so that it now ends 1 minute past midnight every night. Hopefully this bug won't happen again.

Nobody lost their funds, but the round didn't reset like it was supposed to, so the game essentially was extended by 24 hours.

Wouldn't it help if you ran both games on different databases?

Just make 2 copies of the games in different locations.
I know it's not exactly a fix, but could help keep the game running smoothly until the problem is corrected.

Separate databases would make a lot more sense.

Perhaps it's an issue with Cron?

Either way, it works now.

Yeah I think it was that both Cron jobs were trying to run at the same time. I offset the mountain game by 1 minute, so should be good tonight.

I would hold off sniping on King of the Mountain's new game tonight after 12:01am EDT, just in case. If the game STILL doesn't end, I will do it manually. Then you can feel free to go nuts. I will be in the chat tonight around that time to give everyone status updates on what's going on.

Thanks for your feedback and encouragement, rem Smiley

New King of the Mountain game begins in about an hour at 12:01am EDT

Please hold off on sniping until I verify that the end-game script has run!
