i occasionally ask this questions because i myself am working on a private project that is inspired by good old LOTGD. It has now reached the point where such things as  music , audio in general and support for graphics matter. Of course the accessibility part must be in there somewhere, but as things are, this will boil down to some predefined keys that can be pressed to execute all actions in the game, since well .. its a game and not a "webpage" per se.

Ah, dang, of course ... the screen reader reads the text and thus music playing in the background would make it difficult to understand at all .. now that seems pretty obvious. sorry for that :-D

But what about mood and ambiance ?  Is the problem you describe related to music being intrusive but not mood or is there any technical reason i am not aware of ? I chatted extensively with raiyndarren 2 years ago and she told me that mood and ambiance would be nice things to have. Not sure how you mean that .. oh and of course an option to disable music is a must :-)

Ya, there seems to be no workaround to javascript, nodejs and/or ajax for this to run smooth. :-)

I get from your answer that it could be used assuming it would not be interrupted by the clicks. How do you think are other typical lotgd players inclined to having sound effects in an otherwise mainly text game ?

Btw, ill try your server in order to see what you meant. 😏

Yep but do you think that for example, a battle music track would be too much ?  Would it be too repetitive or annoying even if having more than one track for that ?

I am playing with ideas for mood , like you know when you are in the woods, one would hear bitds and stuff like that.

Hey dragonprimers. I have a question regarding the use of sound in lotgd or a similar project. Here it goes :

Would the game benefit from ambient sounds, music when in certain locations or during a battle ? How much would be too much and would be the right balance ? Should it be customizable or able to be switched off ?

:-)

In a broad sense it will help all users to better control their data, but that will take some time. For now , i guess noone really knows what is going on.

I agree. Most likely,nothing will happen. But that could scenario can just be someone being a stupid person making your life difficult. As with most laws of this kind, it will serve ppl who are in the sueing business and want to hinder rivals. Or just maybe a random dude that just does not like you. And that is the tragic part of this. And it already started between businesses over here, mostly rivals. Probably the whole thing will settle down, but its hot waters right now.

You can treat every paragraph as a checklist point Smiley

As far as i can see, you have two cookies set :

   -   PHPSESSION   -> obvious reasons
   -   lgi       -> dont know what this one does ( maybe someone can help here )

You should declare the use of those two cookies ( what they do and why they are needed for the game to work )
basically the one for the PHPSESSION is needed for state ( so that the user keeps his information when he switches pages )
and the other called "lgi" is unknown to me, not sure what that one does .. you should check this out.. if it is needed at all

Add a bottom bar ( or top ) where you warn anyone that the page uses those two specific cookies ( there are plugins for that and they are free ). This is annoying , but should be present at least in the front page

Create a page in the SAME domain that states what you do with the entered data from your users in general ( basically a PRIVACY POLICY )

When the user LOGS in , you should have a notice ( a small one ) that states that by logging in he/she agrees to the PRIVACY POLICY , and you should add a link to that page too. Try to do this in a non intrusive but clearly noticeable way. Do not use popups as they are often blocked, maybe in MOTD or above it.

When a user SIGNS UP, add 2 check boxes that MUST be checked before the account can be created. One stating that the user accepts the terms of service and the other more important, that he accepts the PRIVACY POLICY. Add a link to the privacy policy in the same page.

When a user is created, add a DB field to the user account with a timestamp so that you can provide the registration time when asked for it ( in case you should have to do it ).

Avoid putting extra conditions and terms on single pages, its better to have it in a dedicated page where the user is redirected to if he wishes so and this helps keep things organized.
Remember to keep some how a button or a link at the bottom with direct access to that page at all times.


Doing so should put you on the safe side.

As far as the contents of the privacy policy goes, besides having the usual stuff that you can get from anywhere in the web, you should at least put in what you do with inactive accounts, the time you take to delete Data if a user wishes to resign and the consequences of doing so ( i.e. the user account will be unrecoverable if the user really wishes to delete it )


You see.. even for a page that is very conservative and with almost no connections to data collection services like yours, it still is a pain in the ass ( literally ) to make it something like compliant with GDPR. But hey, once you have it, its done.

@tgtarheel :what is your page again ?
14  Game Administration, Installation and Configuration / Game Administration Chat / Re: GDPR Privacy in the EU (and those who accept EU players) - Issues with Lotgd on: May 30, 2018, 10:43:41 AM
I agree with you on everything.
I meant „as far as cookies go“ and not anything lotgd specific.

But keep in mind that as soon as you have a cookie set or a session started , and that often happens a lot ( like say a paypal donation button that could have a tracker ), you are already in the line of fire. Its really that simple. I am located in switzerland where technically you are not in the EU, and yet a lawyer we had to hire to check the status of the pages of our small company, urged us to put a thorough privacy disclaimer ( on every cookie and why its needed , etc.. ) on every page, even if technically they were public pages.

Its not about your page not being compliant with the gdpr, its about putting your ass in safety if there is a moron that decides to sue you from within europe if he thinks your disclaimer is not good enough. And since you never know when some shit in your page sets a new cookie that is not declared, you might be subject to have to prove that you handle data correctly by the authorities.

Its a freaking nightmare and no one knows whats gonna happen . People now start realizing that their simple pages are collecting data through their plugins.

Its a great time for lawyers and ppl that want to sue others. If someone does not like your site, he / she just has to create an account, and mess with you. Its completely irrelevant if it is a game or a wordpress site.

I found this to be the easiest way to get out of the line of fire as far as cookies go :

https://www.cookiebot.com/en/pricing/

Take the free option as it covers one domain free of charge.
You can set it up within minutes.
