Tested with available browers, works fine for me in Firefox 16.0.1 on windows.
IE 10 for Win 8 fails to load anything but the background unless you view the website in compatibility mode, at which point the login screen appears. I have so far been unable to actually log in using the browser in either app or dekstop mode.
Android's stock browser and Firefox for Android as mentioned previously in the thread, login attempts are halted by account verification, and not being able to scroll down to actually push the button to proceed. The background is scrolling, with the input window staying static.
As a Fleet Admiral I'd like have option to check fleet status and menage holdings projects.
Sorry for any mistakes, english isn't my primary language.
"Dear players we have for you new useless event and only-one-map-use-divices, and much more new "content", but we can't repair glitch in chat system which make mutes on private channels permament. So deal with it and give us your remaining money."
The Gateway site itself looks good. A bit incomplete in some popups (Bridge Officer skills, for exmaple).
But the Account Guard implementation is is horribly flawed. The system I always use for STO is permitted in Account Guard. And yes I got an Account Guard block when I logged into the Gateway. And the IP address in the e-mail has NOTHING to do with my primate home network nor my public network network.
The IP address that showed up in my Account Guard e-mails is 172.20.1.35. How in Gre'thor is that even possible? I do use a private IP range for my private home network. But I only used 172.16.0.0/24. You really need to fix your remote IP determination code. It's not that hard. The web server gives it to you on a silver platter.
Wait: It just occurred to me that your are NAT's incoming connections to the STO Gateway server. That would explained the bogus IP address. I would some confirmation on that.
So far utterly CRAP, as allways Cryptic lending on players (CLIENTS) to be their Bug reporters / Quality control. The thing is that is never available, allways under mantainance, also now it puts a ad instead of the login inputs allmost 50% of the time. Yes CRAP, maybe in a year or so it will become of any use.
First off, great job so far. It looks great but I do have a few questions and comments.
Will there be access to the datasource that has all of this information? I see that you are using JSON to provide a lot of the data however the data is a bit cryptic (no pun intended).
You also seem to be using sockets to transfer the data. While you can now use sockets in HTML 5, sockets really should not be used in modern applications. I strongly suggest exposing everything as a RESTful service.
I was the one that created the STO Profile Viewer for Windows Phone a year or so ago (no longer works due to xml data source being removed) and I would be happy to loan some expertise and comments/feedback that I recieved from building my application.
Please thank the team behind this.
I have tested this so far on the following hardware:
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate: Internet Explorer 9 & Firefox 15
Windows Phone 7: Internet Explorer 9
Windows 8 x64 Pro: Internet Explorer 10 (Metro), Internet Explorer 10 (Desktop)
Windows Server 2012 x64: Internet Explorer 10 (Metro), Internet Explorer 10 (Desktop)
In Internet Explorer 10 (Metro) and Internet Explorer 10 (Desktop) the site simply does not load. I can get it to load in IE 10 desktop if I turn on compatibility. It it likely something in the JS file that is causing this. I suggest getting the latest or experimental build of jquery and check in your client.js.
Also make the web icon available as a bigger icon. Using X-Icon Editor you can create a single ICO file that has a 16x16, 24x24, 32x32, and 64x64 icon in there. That way people can pin this to their start screen.
In terms of the UI and UX we need an option to go back to the character selection screen. Also move the modal popup that appears when you click a device to below the list of devices. Right now with it popping over the ship information you lose information. For desktop browsers you could enable a hover tool tip instead of the popup which would reduce clicking.
