Lost my connection sad. Didn't realise until I left and then it was too late.

Re: Curry suicide at my house?!

Some sort of notification during robbery when the connection is lost would be nice, anyway I had a pretty good run there.

I think that's a good suggestion. I knew it was you :-) I was playing at your house - it was inevitable.

Re: Curry suicide at my house?!

Well, that was really only a scouting attempt - I was stopped by your first electric door.

Probably one of the scariest things about robbing - internet connections can be fickle things.

Re: Curry suicide at my house?!

I really liked Curry's house. I laughed as I brought water instead of wire cutters so I had to return just to have 'wtf?!' moment when the door opened after I cut the electric floor. I really liked it and just from scouting I had some great ideas for next houses.

Re: Curry suicide at my house?!

So... if a ping fails, you want it to kick you out of the robbery at that moment?

The thing is, the client code will keep retrying that ping forever until it goes through.

Would you like a little "connection icon" to appear when this happens?

Are you saying that there could have been some steps you could have taken to get your connection back if you had realized?

Re: Curry suicide at my house?!

A "connection error" icon before actually leaving the house would be awesome, as you could take steps towards reconnecting before leaving? Not sure if that is how the mechanics work, but if it is...

Re: Curry suicide at my house?!

If leaving the house immediately makes your attempt fail, if you don't have connection, then I believe some notification would help as 5 minutes are more than nothing. It happens to me sometimes too when my vacuum cleaner decides to play with my cables and it is just a matter of putting the RJ-45 connector deeper into the socket so it is usually doable within few seconds.

Re: Curry suicide at my house?!

Okay, so I got this working for v34.

Essentially, the "connection in progress" icon shows up if a ping is taking longer than 8 seconds, and shows the red [!] with tool tip if the ping needs to be retried (or just shows red [...] if there's no room for the full [!] icon on that page).

This can happen while editing, while loading the backpack, while looking in the auction house, and while robbing.  Pings are sent every 4 minutes assuming some activity on your part in the last 5 minutes on any of these pages.  But as long as the ping goes through in under 8 seconds, you won't see anything (the white version of the connection icon is hidden---only the orange one shows up if necessary).

And if you manage to plug the network back in mid-robbery, everything should be fine, because the ping will keep retrying and eventually get through once the network comes back.

Because pings are sent every 4 minutes, and you are timed out after 5 minutes of no pings server-side, you safely have roughly 1 minute from when you start seeing the icon to fix your network.  It might be more than this, because server flush only happens ever 2 minutes, so you have between 1 and 3 minutes.

But, you know, best to rush and get that network connected again quickly!

Also, because of overlap issues, the connection icon is NOT shown at all if the "Sirens?" message is visible on the robbery page.  Of course, if you're seeing the Sirens? message, you have more pressing problems.
