@Panther That's how I intended it as well.
But I get the point that we probably want to have an option to get someone easily started without having to search this specific setting first.
We really want to give some sort of tooltip or popup to inform new users what they need to do first.
One thing after another.
The code to setup all of this is a complete mess, it's already going to be difficult enough to move this single setting somewhere else.
But it will make the code more maintainable in the long run (also another step towards clearly separating UI code from game logic)
I'm planning to overhaul the PBEM/PBF Settings and wanted to ask how often you are changing your configuration for that.
I personally don't ever change my PBEM config at all. I only configured it once and am using that to test this feature.
Because my email doesn't really change I was thinking if it would make sense to move settings that almost never change (I include the default email server and email server settings) into the the settings menu where all the other settings are.
Of course this would only make sense if there aren't any people that change/swap emails very often.
So do you think people would want to swap their own email very often?
Hmm if the user is absolutely sure that there isn't any old java version on the system left there are really only two options.
The first one being that there's some sort of proxy on the system or the local network.
In case the proxy is on the system (probably the case if you're not trying to play in a corporate network or something similar where traffic gets filtered) there's an issue on github with troubleshooting steps.
I can't find the issue right now (probably too tired from the day), but I recall @ssoloff guiding a user through troubleshooting steps to fix this issue.
In case the proxy is on the network it might help to fiddle around with some proxy settings inside the triplea settings menu.
Option 2 would be that the connection is actually being "attacked" which is unlikely.
