I've had something like 4-6 games in the last 2-3 days end in Checksum errors.

Usually when I return to the game lobby the other folks I was playing with are still in their game.

Seems to be happening a lot more than it used to.

Anything we can do to minimize spurious checksum errors while still keeping the cheaters out?

I still don't know how it is possible to cheat. Anyway, I have got 3 checksum errors in a row. It has been I'm building my armory or quarters, and suddenly "checksum error". I only can play 1 on 2, (because I can't win any rating playing 1 on 1) so when it says checksum error, I lose 4-10 rating! That's because it's from the power graph of the game. So I think you should make the power graph have no effect on a 1 on 2 game. Thanks for reading this.

Is there any way to reduce these oddlabs folks? I get them almost more than I don't these days.

Yesterday for example, 45 minutes into a game I got one. Besides making me feel like I'd just wasted an hour playing, it's confusing that it tells everyone involved they won, when they didn't.

We are working on it, but that kind of error is by far the most difficult to find.

I haven't been playing recently, but I can say that about a month or two ago when I was more active I had a lot of checksum errors also.

The latest update contains a fix for a checksum bug. If you experience additional checksum errors during multiplayer games, please make sure to send in a report. We'll need at least two players sending in reports for the game session.
