If you are anywhere on OGS where it is not a game that is your turn: go to the most urgent game.
If you are on a game where it is your turn: keep circulating from where it left off, starting from most urgent and moving to less urgent games in order.
This means if you played a turn, then by definition you are not on a board where it is your turn, so you go to the next most urgent. On the other hand, if you are looking at a game where it is your turn to play and you click the circle, it means you want to circulate through your list of games.
Isn’t the real problem that auto advance doesn’t work with live games? Just make the auto advance option “correspondence only” (default) “correspondence and live” (two separate lists - i.e. it either auto advances through all the live games you are playing or so the correspondence games but doesn’t auto advance from one to the other)
I arrive a little late, but I try to add something
I didn’t understand what you meant here, sorry.
Do you mean that calculating the remaining time and sorting the games by time would take too long?
I confirm that it can happen
In my opinion going to the game with less time is almost always positive, even if in some cases it can mean playing less in the slower games.
Now the live games cycle by clicking on the button and sometimes it’s a little annoying because by reaching one of those the next game opens in another tab.
I like the idea to enable auto advance in live games. Staying on that tab (like correspondence rengo) would be already an improvement.
I think it’s that if you start on the game with the shortest time and don’t move but click the circle to look at other games, then at some point decide you want to go to the game with the shortest time again. You will then need to click the circle “many” times to go round the whole cycle of games with longer and longer remaining time in order to get to the end of the list and back round to the shortest time game again.
No, I meant that if the only change is “make it so that we loop through the games in order of decreasing urgency”, then if you have 100 games and you’re on your second one, it’s 99 clicks to get to the most urgent.
That’s why I’ve suggested making it so that it “resets” back to “go to the most urgent” if you are not looking at one of your games-to-play.
Why not have it reset every time instead of creating a fixed order at the beginning? I think it should not be too annoying as a game only appears several times if the opponent is playing while you are playing in the other games.
(of course, I speak without knowing what is really feasible)
