What’s New

– made a stand-alone java program to detect if a game server is down or a problem is detected, also added some bash scripts to restart these game servers as necessary (expected downtime is at most 10 minutes, although this still doesn’t cover one problem area)
– skip some game ads (for now, as it is generating too much traffic and additional load on the server)
– disallow sending of too much text (which can happen in certain uncatched situations before)
– try to limit number of smileys that can be used in a single chat text
– fixed minor size issue when opening pop-up windows (could explain why a few players don’t see the entire height of the game? not sure…)
