An Update!

Lot of updates actually: Facebook Connect, Re-Match Feature and Full Screen Mode.

Facebook Connect

We wanted to make logging in and playing Weewar even easier, so we added Facebook Connect! As an existing player you can simply log in with your username and password as before and then click the Facebook button at the top of the page to connect your Weewar account to your Facebook account. On future visits to Weewar.com, you will then be able to sign in with a single click on the Facebook button. New users can sign up on their first visit by clicking the Facebook button. Linking your Weewar account to Facebook is, of course, entirely optional.

Now, you can invite friends to your Weewar game from Facebook! If you are logged in via Facebook, you can choose to let your Facebook friends know when you create an open game so they can join you.  Weewar game notifications are, of course, entirely optional. This is Weewar, not Spamwar.

Win or lose, now you can rematch with a single click! Do you ever wonder what would have happened if you’d made a different move in a Weewar game?  We do. But setting up a new game and inviting all the same players used to be tedious. No more! With the new re-match feature you can do it all in one click. You do not even have to wait for the game to end, just start another – and if there was a player that slowed everyone down, drop them and replace them with someone else.  It is available to all pro players from the in-game options menu in every game and at any time!

Full size mode! Netbook players rejoice.  Look for the yellow icon at the top right corner of your games to try out the new and improved full size mode.

Need air support?  You can now repair your aircraft on any team controlled airport. Spoke to soon! This will be part of the next release.

Rules, rules, rules!  It is not all happy news.  We have been advised that the referral system in its current form does not comply with US laws. Since most of you are based in the US, we have decided to remove the feature for the time being. You will of course retain any pro time you have received in the past for referrals. And we are working on new ways to reward you!

Coming Soon! We have a lot of new features and updates coming soon.  So, stay tuned!  And as always: Let us know what you think. We need and want your feedback on these updates so please share them via the contact form!

    While I like the idea of a full screen mode it doesn’t include the chat or player names and teams. and the standard mode is now narrow and has a scroll bar. I feel like something has been lost. For those of us with wide-screens where there was often enough real estate before I now have to give up the chat or lots of the Map.

      I Love the game–but I really dislike the new screen system. I just can’t see enough. Full screen mode without the chat means I’ll never use it–I like the social aspect of playing.

      Looking forward to having the rematch button, though.

      same here – why just use 900px in the center when my screen overs soo much more space? seems like i have to build greasemonkey-script :-/

        And having to continually rewrite Greasemonkey scripts every update is frustrating… and it’s only for those that use FireFox… everyone else still has to suffer.

        yeah, of course, it’s just a quick and dirty fix for the time till the developer decide to change it

      The idea of a full screen mode is great, but why does it have to impact the standard mode?

      This small map view in standard mode (which is how I prefer to play) SUCKS!

      Keep improving… this isn’t an improvement.

    Yeah the new changes really dont look good at all, lost a lot of basic functionality.

    How does the referral system violate US laws?

    It still sucks! Please fix this so it’s enjoyable to play again.
