Hi.

I need to delete some finished games, because of multi users...

But of course, the button cancel game is only for not yet finished games.

Do I have to delete the game manually from the DataBase?

Thanks a lot.

You could delete it in the database, the problem with being able to cancel/delete finished games is that there's no way to reliably reset the points; a game might have finished and all users bet all their points into other games and lost, and there are no points to take back to reset things.

Giving points back is really the main purpose of cancelling games, so without that you might as well just leave the game there I suppose (or delete it manually like you mentioned)

Kestas, I don't care much about points (they're not mine anyway :), but if a player plays 4 games with his multis and wins them all, I want to delete these games and the players (also in this case I don't care about points because they're almost always won by multis).

In order to cancell the finished game manually I just have to cancel the line in the table wD_Games or there is something else to do?

You could take the user's points via the admin CP, or ban the user (which I think takes their points?), if taking points from multis is the main issue that should do the job

no, I don't care much about points, also because banning a user takes them away.

the main issue is to delete the unfair games.

hi again. I stil didn't do anything, because don't want to mess things up.


apart removing the game line in the table wD_Games, is there something else to do in order to definitely cancell a game ?

Thanks,
Alex.

You need to delete the entries for the GameID in wD_Members too (there should be one entry for each country)
