Connect was written and has been maintained by Collabora as a test case for Tubes implementation.
Due to other priorities the game features have not been completed.
The open bugs relate to missing features: [Connect bugs]
Starting a new game
Connect's D-Bus (Tubes) API needs to be extended to cater for the following:
- Starting a new game when the current game ends
- If there are watchers (over and above the two participants), the winner plays against the top watcher next
- The loser goes to the bottom of the watchers list
- Forfeiting the game if a player leaves during a game - and then starting a new game
It should track the scores - the 0s next to the player names should track how many games each has won.
Connect has been removed from Update.1 builds since 639 because it is incomplete as a game. It remains in Joyride builds.
