Descriptive Problem Summary:Sometimes I go to a website or something someone tells me to join a game or something, so I go click the link, and I do what I usually do, and nothing pops up.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:In my case.
1.Someone sent me a link to this page, http://www.byond.com/developer/Michael3131/CalendarSystem so I go there and click the button to download it, do the usual vista stuff to allow it to open byond and such up and everything, and then, nothing comes up.
So now, I try again, nothing, so now, I close the pager, and bring it back up, click the link, and NOW it does work. So, simply, sometimes for some reason links don't like to work sometimes, and apparentally, since re-opening pager helps, maybe it's a pager problem.
I don't even know if the pager is involved in it opening or whatever, but, it's how I get it to work again.
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
Expected Results:It to open up right away no problem.
Actual Results:It takes till I restart the pager for it to start working again, there maybe other work-arounds though.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?Sometimes it happens that it stops working, but it seems to stop working forever after it finally stops working, until the pager is re-opened.
In other games?NOT APPLICABLE. Seems to be all links to do stuff that it has happened on.
In other user accounts?Yes
On other computers?Yes, most people on BYOND, and even the guy who sent me this link has seen this issue.
When does the problem NOT occur?Don't know.
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
Don't know, I don't think it happened way back in 350 or so, I think it started once the new visual screen came up to show download progress, and the thing pops up saying play this game locally, or host, the blue splash screen or whatever.
Workarounds:Re-open the byond pager.
