Multiplayer slow game server

As all required PRs were merged I'm launching test slow paced game (1 turn is 23h).

If you want to participate send me PM with your player name and XMPP or Email address to send One-time passwords and turn notifications from xmpp:freeorion-lt@bitcheese.net (accept this bot subscription request).

Turn timeout set to 23h so turn advance will happen one hour early each day, or earlier if all players make their orders.

Always look for required version to play. Updating version could cause desync in saved games so games will be restarted as rare as possible and I have to freeze some weekly test builds.

Game will be restarted if some important feature and bug-fix will be published, new awaiting players will count more than 50% of present players in game, 50%+1 will vote to change game options or rules, someone wins the game, stable release will be published.

Server settings:
  • Default galaxy setup options.
  • 18 systems per player.
  • No AI.
  • Only Player client type allowed.
  • Only registered players allowed.
  • Network messages restricted by size 10 MiB.
  • Random species at start.
  • Cookies are alive 36 hours so they don't expire if player logins to the game daily.
  • Chat saves messages between restarts.
  • Empire statistics disabled.
  • Chat history shows 500 latest messages.
  • The server disallows to take over eliminated empire.
  • Starting fleet is 3 scouts, 2 Mark I, colony ship, and outpost ship.
  • Player names are case insensitive.
Game rules:
  • Super Tester disabled.
  • Latest alive human player wins game.
  • Any player is allowed to concede.
  • Alliance of 2 players could declare victory.
  • Part-based ship upkeep enabled.
  • Tech cost factor decreased and set to 1.2.
  • Building, ship part and ship hull cost factors decreased and set to 0.6.
  • The server doesn't disclosure information about other empire's research and production. Player could only see other empires research if he researched it as well.
  • For team game only: Any diplomacy disabled to preserve teams.
Source code for server: https://github.com/o01eg/freeorion/tree ... r-longturn

Server address: freeorion-lt.dedyn.io or 147.135.99.147
Server version: 2019-10-13.49f7896 (Use only this version of weekly test build to play)

I'm on the same page.
I think, if we have this doubt, it means we must create an account at an XMPP provider. Any recomendation?

Usage of e-mail is more strict than XMPP, but I managed to setup e-mail support. So you could PM me with it to register as well.

Erhm... I think I've crashed the server.

I set the IP and player name (Oberlus), a window poped up to ask me the password. I guess it needs a new password (first time connecting), I write something with "ñ", the windows seems to stall for 3 secs (I try to write but no more "*" appears), then FO crashes to desktop. I open it again and try to connect but Time out. Then I try to connect again (as I was writing this), and it works but anything I write as password is wrong, so I can't connect? :oops:

Edit: I think I did it again, trying to write the same I might have written in the first try, when window seemed freezed but maybe wasn't. Any chance this has something to do with local settings of keyboard?

Yep, I got a crashdump for server.

You should got OTP via mail. There were some settings issues which should be fixed now. Could you try to login again?

Ok, I must be doing something wrong. I just connected, got "ERROR: Password wrong for player name Oberlus". Nothing in my email.
Edit: tried twice, writing something and leaving password blank.

This time I didn't catch errors about mail sending. Could you check spam folder or something?
