I found a way to create the red screen for my opponent which results in a win if my opponent refreshes.

Players should report when they get a red screen against a certain opponent.

Game times out after 10 minutes and nothing happens to either player.

This is why I never refresh the red screen.  Happened to me once a while ago.

You are a smart player LI. As Astros suggested report this if it happens. New players heads up  !

 

2.0 Cases of Cheating:

2.1 Cheating in any form is unacceptable on our site: The site takes all cases of cheating seriously and the public evidence from victims or other interested parties will be examined carefully to make certain that no player uses any flaw in our program to benefit his or her game. Such events may be rare, but if the MT believes that the evidence demonstrates that any cheating has occurred, the penalties will be very harsh. One-time cheating events, such as glitching the software to boot one's opponent from the game, will be given the two-tier penalty schedule below. Multiple offenses discovered after the fact, such as using aliases to cheat, may receive the full 2nd degree penalty of banning 
(must comply with 1.8 Permanent Bans)

I had thought this red screen was a random computer glitch. I didn't know it can be done intentionally. I'll keep records next time. Do you suspect that it is intentional every time it happens?

Does it happens always during the set up phase/beggining of the game?. At least this is my experience until now.

yes and it happens much less if you play with Chrome


If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

They way I discovered will occur regardless of what browser my opponent uses.

It may also occur unintentionally. I found a way to cause a red screen glitch every time though. It is a bug and a red screen does not necessarily indicate malicious behavior but it could be easily abused. Thus players should keep an eye out.

Yes, but beware that when you state "I found a way to create the red screen for my opponent" some with a lower level of reading comprehension may still believe it has to do with certain browsers.

Nice stuff astros, I will bring it up with the MT. We could implement a report procedure so if multiple players are having it against the same opponent we might be able to start punishing people doing it intentionally.

How about setting up an issue and have the game developers create a fix for the bug?

If anyone is interested, I was watching one of DP's videos the other day with this issue of red screen up in general chat. DP happened across players --12 monkeys/Vicki/ Sliver. While I don't want  to spoil the vid for viewers --lets just say one player had a red screen another was prompting player to do one thing.While the other player wanted something else. ;)

This just happened for me against Newaccount4me, an obvious multi-account player. I have video if we ever try to do something about it.

I'm trying to update to a new GSFR and hope to bring this forward with it fairly soon.
