What do you guys think of my Checkers game?

Posted 02 May 2017 - 06:45 AM

Hi everyone. I made an online checkers game using purely Javascript & Node.js.

I've not shown it to anyone yet, so I'd appreciate a bit of constructive feedback if possible!

You can view it here: multiplayercheckers.co.uk

Can't get past the 'enter name' page.

That page doesn't explain what is going on, what the site is for, etc.

Okay yeah I guess I did get a bit too caught up with everything else and neglected the homepage.

I've updated it a little bit for now, I'll change it properly later.

You should be able to just type in a username and click "Submit". Then you'll be taken to the lobby.

Submit doesn't work still. Maybe I'll try it later.

Wait, really?

It's worked for everyone I've sent it to so far. This is strange.

Can I ask what happens when you enter a name and click on the submit button?

Well that's unsettling...

It's working for me and my friend on Facebook right now.

What browser are you using?

Most likely your javascript is being blocked as coming from an unsecure source. So it goes.

app.js, right?

Wasn't expecting a Vonnegut reference haha.

Yeah it is. Eh, any idea how I can sort this out? Didn't even know that was really a thing.

I'm hosting the site with Digital Ocean and PuTTY. The code's cloned from a github repository. The domains from GoDaddy.

It's worked for me in England, and for a friend of mine in Jersey. So I'm pretty confused now.

I agree with Modi. The UI could really use a lot of work. Try adding more instructions on the pages or something.

I managed to get in without any problems. It's a bit dull to look at though. Add some colour?

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Adding a chat system for the lobby and in the games will probably be my next move. I'll try and neaten up the initial enter page too.
