  • Fix minor bugs


  • TOP SECRET STUFF :blush:


I really like such topics. I like to know what’s going on, try new things (that I might not know other way, even though they can be useful) and get excited from knowing what new features can be expected.
That’s also a kind a feedback from bug listed on the forum. IMHO, such feedbacks are important.

However, once the process is started, people often want regular news. Else, they’ll think: they are doing nothing, this site is not gonna last for long etc.
At least this is something I saw while working for a company, and this is as well what I expect when I am a simple user.

One feature has been lost with that new version : in the search input for leaderboards, I could add few players (example : “toto titi tata”), so I could compare to each others. Now, it does not work anymore (since it seems to search for a complete string, not x separate strings)

That’s defenity a good subject, like this we are aware of the new features that will be available soon.

I reallike the contest leaderboard page and the global leader borad object.

Keep going guys!

Ok, I note, thanks!

I really like that kind of logs, you should even considers pinning it and keep a track of all updates for people who want to know what’s new :slight_smile:

I think you forgot to tell that now the special contests (Winamax, Teads, Nintendo) are saved and now grants achievements.

2015-03-10 Sprint Released

  • Update “Onboarding” : Some adjustments to make Onboarding always more accessible for Coding-Newbies !
  • Update “Char Limit” : The characters limit for submitted code was increased from 50k to 100k. No more excuses for not commenting / indenting your code.
  • Update “Pro Tip” : The (in)famous Pro Tip : You can use Ctrl+Enter to launch the last test.’ popup will never be displayed again as soon as you use the shortcut. Pheeew.

  • New feature “Backup code”: It is now possible to save a code for each language for a same puzzle and it should be retroactive ! In short, you can switch languages without losing your previous code.

2015-03-24 Sprint Released

  • Teaser : New CodinGame Point Formula. Still time to discuss about : HERE

2015-04-14 Sprint Released

NEW CodinGame Sync 1.0.4: The update will be automatic once Google has validated the new content. If a problem occurs using CGSync, please verify that the plugin and the application are both up to date ( v1.0.4 ) in the chrome://extensions/ tab

  • ** Update “Console Output”** : When a new puzzle is launched, the console output in the IDE is now hidden to be able to read the statement more easily.
  • ** Update “CodinGame Sync v1.0.4” ** : The whole plugin infrastructure has been reviewed. The plugin now uses emitted/catched events by CodinGame rather than manipulate the DOM itself (goal is to open source the plugin down the road :smile:) .

  • ** New feature “New Contest Formula” ** : As mentioned by @trnsnt in the dedicated thread, the old formula was kind of unfair, so we updated it. The deployment will be gradual, your rankings/profile page will be updated in the coming days.

  • ** New feature “CodinGame Sync v1.0.4” ** : CodinGame Sync now has a home page when we start the application outside of the CodinGame IDE (from the Chrome App Launcher for instance).
    Plus, a loading page was added to enhance the user experience.
    Plus, when the plugin is no longer able to open the local file it will return to factory settings.

  • ** Fix “CodinGame Sync v1.0.4” ** : The fileservlet in the IN/OUT puzzle, like “in.txt” or “out.txt”, no longer conflicts with the plugin.
    Moreover, the ON->Auto-OFF behavior should not appear anymore.

Hey @SaiksyApo,

When clicking ‘I need help’ in Network Cabling puzzle for example it redirects you to ‘topic is private’ forum page, see attached screenshot:

Hmm, when trying to upload the screenshot it says ‘Sorry there was an error uploading this file…’, it’s a png, any idea?

I don’t know if this is related to the update of Pixi but on some games (There Is no Spoon and Paranoid Android (code size) for example), 1 core is used at 100%. It is now impossible for me to stay on a puzzle more than 30mn, my laptop is burning. This affects particularly Chromium, it seems better with Firefox.

Edit: there are actually several issues here. On Paranoid Android, this is not a graphical issue. When I run the last test, the CPU usage is at 100% while the game is replayed (even without the player displayed) and at the end CG still uses 30% of the CPU for no apparent reasons.
