Last night I ran Sekigahara online to see if anyone would join. After an hour I shut it down. Now today I go back on and notice there is one person running Sekigahara. Great I think, someone to play with. Then I discover it’s me from last night still lingering on the severs list of current games running. How long does it take for the servers to flush shut down games???
Discovering this answers an observation I have made. There are many games I check on only to discover it’s still open by the same person for several days. I highly doubt someone leaves their computer on and Vassal open for that period of time. This also answers why when I jump in and write I get no response, even after I send a wake up. It’s not that they aren’t at the computer, its rather they don’t even have the vassal module running.
Why is it like this? Is it all that hard to flush out closed down games?
