Turn Notification Request

Postby Robert » Wed Jun 19, 2013 6:32 am

Would 17-BIT please add Steam notifications or email notifications for Skulls Anywhere turns in the Bone-A-Fide edition? In the previous version there was live tile updates and Xbox Live messages, but after playing a few turns last evening there doesn't seem to be a notification system in place for the Bone-A-Fide edition.

This request is in response to a post by Robmonster in the General Discussion forum:

Yeah, we've been looking into trying to use steam chat for async notifications, but it looks like that might not work... Hopefully should have this before launch.

If stream won't support it then an email notification would at least help

Ok, email support went in last night. You can toggle it on/off in Help & Options->Settings (defauilts to ON).

Robot Entertainment has taskbar turn notifications with their turn-based strategy title, Hero Academy, which is also on Steam. I do not own the title myself yet, but perhaps for you guys it's worth discovering how it works?

It looks like Hero Academy has to be running for the notification to work, which is kind of a bummer, but I'm looking at adding something like this anyway, since it seems like a nice feature. Then you could just minimize Skulls and do something else until notified of a new turn, and then launch straight into the match. I'll keep you posted. :)
