Could that not pop up in a game... I just lost while juggling because it came up exactly when I needed to place a tower in a long game

very weird... the 30 minute afk timer should not be happening while you are in a game. Was this a regular game or multiplayer?

A regular game, though I may have had other non-game tabs open.

Ya, not sure how that happened. Never seen that before. Either way, I increased the afk time from 30 min to 1 hour. Hopefully that helps.

You should also update the text. It still says 30 minutes.

And again, not even 15 minutes later.

Edit:
It happened over and over again, and it seems to happen one minute earlier with each time.

It happened twice in the current Golden Ticket Map. The first time while I was juggling, the second time about 30 Minutes later while the game was paused. anonemouse said that he even lost the game due to this bug.


What is the purpose of the "AFK-Switch" anyways? Does it stop a counter like timeSpendOnline or am I marked as AFK for others when I'm in their Friendlist?

As far as I can tell, the afk timer should be set to 1 hour. The reason this exists is to prevent people from signing into the site then leaving their computer. Without the afk timer, someone could log in, then leave their computer for 2 weeks and it would still show them as online. As well while you are online the site does send traffic to your computer (updated friendlist, chat, who's in the multiplayer, etc). I wouldn't want people afk that long to be spamming my server for no reason.

I'd be interested to know if the people that got the afk timer while playing the game were in fact playing for more than 1 hour straight in the same game.

I'm not sure if it'll help, but I bumped the afk timer up again to 2 hours. So, assuming the afk timer is working, you'd have to be playing the same game for 2 straight hours for it to mark you as afk. Hopefully no one would ever play 1 map that long...

OK, so this should not happen again unless you play for 2 straight hours.... hopefully that's more than enough time. I never intended games to last this long.

Without the nuke, 200 level maps will necessarily last a long time.

I think they have 150 million hp...

can confirm both; within the recent weekly the "AFK - message" applys within game (as in several other, long lasting games) and as I wrote: So there was no sell increment, I would have been able to juggle all day long, but with 153 mio hitpoint creeps and very less money it would have last very, very long till the last creep should have died.

Ok, I'll make sure not to make tournaments like that one again.
