Ring Game Notifier

We had a sexy suggestion today. Would you be able to do a popup notification in the system tray, along with an alert sound, so that people know when tables hit certain states.

[23:07:41] Zhecao Vai > thing you could do: just make a webpage that refreshes automatically with a little setting "notify every [5] minutes when [x] low-stakes [x] medium-stakes [ ] high-stakes is above [7] players"

This could almost be put into a player's account settings, they could ask for notifications when a table reaches a certain state, and also when they join from the waiting list, since people may be looking at other windows when that happens. I think this would work best as part of the program itself, but we could always jury-rig something if more API data was there (once it gets developed).

The Flash client is constrained to the Flash player inside the web browser. It has no ability to do anything outside of that other than to read or write a cookie value. It would be a huge security risk otherwise. The things in your system tray are running Windows applications.

How about table status data via the API so we could write a small monitoring app?

Or is there any way to force a browser to refocus on a tab or to play a sound, or something?

Yes, the API will eventually have everything the Remote Admin interface has so that includes the status field that indicates how many players are at a table.

Sounds can be played. There's already one that indicates when a new player logs in.
