Important Change Regarding Automatic Tabletopia Demo Reporting
For Immediate Release
December 3, 2018
ORLANDO, FL -
Hey, everybody! Good news and bad news. The good news: I finally figured out why Tabletopia automatic reports failed sometimes, and fixed it! The bad news: everybody who wants to use automatic reporting will need to re-enter their Tabletopia player URL on your minion profile at www.indiegamealliance.com/account/minion/profile. Sorry about that.
Basically, I was under the impression that Tabletopia used your Steam username as your Tabletopia username — turns out, that’s true sometimes, but not always. That led to issues where some users where not getting their reports filed; in some cases this was causing an error because Tabletopia user URLs don’t support special characters and spaces. Fortunately, Tabletopia’s development team got me straightened out, and we should be good to go now.
I’ve decided to retain the existing Steam username field as-is, because we may need that at some point for Tabletop Simulator integration. I didn’t want to copy-paste the Steam usernames into the Tabletopia field, because some of them won’t work for the reasons described above, so I’ve left the field blank for Minions to re-populate with accurate data.
Sorry about that!
