Issues with ADOM server and/or synchronization
Last screen when exiting ADOM does not auto close

Last screen when exiting ADOM (synchronization with server) does not auto close. At first the screen freezes for 3-4 seconds, then"unfreezes" with the fire animation in the background. No other choice but to kill ADOM process.

the started to do so in the current version (only a few days ago), and is not resolve in the Beta.

After about 30 second I force close the app. I made a thread about that in the Steam forum, and one other guy confirmed that it also happened to him. In my case, it happens every single time since last week.

I have Win 7 64bits.

Hi... could you please upload the adom.log file(s) located in the ADOM directory. The server is up and running, so it might be related to a different issue.

Thanks. Ok, so far I can see that your local game installation is missing some highscores that are stored on the server. After the first new highscore is successfully retrieved from the server the log stops.

Could you please check if the other log files ("adom.log.1 - adom.log.9") have similar content or if they contain some error message. Also could you check if a file called "ADOM_HS.LCK" is in the ADOM data directory?

The other .logs seem to have the same errors in them. Yes I have an ADOM_HS.LCK. Should I upload it?

Thanks!

Ah, the ADOM_HS.LCK is probably causing this issue. Please delete it and try again.

Yes! It Works! Would you be so kind as to explain what is that file I deleted? Why was it there ?
Thanks again!

It's a file that is used to "lock" the highscore file, so that no other ADOM process can access it at the same time. So if ADOM wants to write a new highscore to the local highscore file, it creates this file, writes the highscore and then removes the file again. Now if ADOM crashes during this, the file might remain on the hard disk. Normally ADOM displays a dialog if this happens, but it doesn't seem to work during the server synchronization.

I will improve the way this file is handled during synchronization.

Hey thanks a lot for the explanation!

Ok I get it.

Well to be honest it seems to be handled quite well during sync as this particular issue does not seems to be widespread at all.
