  Shit man there's more than a second between press and move. [...]

I can confirm this for Rogue v5 over the webplayer.

A whole second?  Something's definitely wrong.

Try running "ping rlgallery.org" from the command line.  If you get more than 200 milliseconds, it's probably the network.

Your browser might make a difference too.  Chromium feels a little faster than Firefox, I'm not sure about IE yet.  Is redrawing the whole screen, like when you check your inventory, significantly slower than just making a single move?

I'm also planning to rewrite some of the server, which should speed response times up, but not by more than 50 milliseconds.

Web player Rogue v5 is very slow for me as well (not quite a second, but painful), and my ping is 112ms.

Ping time is 35 milliseconds, running Chrome, speed is terrible.

I've done some updates, which may improve things a little.

I've figured out what the real problem is: when your keypress reaches the server, it responds before Rogue is done processing.  The output from Rogue isn't sent until your next request.  I think I'm going to give up on doing polling cleverly and just switch to WebSockets.

Sorry the tournament turned out badly, maybe I should have waited another month or two.

Nothing to worry about! I liked the idea and I definitely willing to give this another try the next time.

  Well shit brother I just figured this was a trial run.

  Makes sense that I could press the move key a bunch of times and have it activate all at once. Glad you figured out the error.

  Run this in August. I'll do it. Rogue is is in my top 5 Roguelikes. That sounds silly, but it's true.

I think I've got it working now, at least for browsers that support WebSockets.  There are a few more features and fixes to add, so I'm thinking of redoing the tournament in September.
