This may be partially my fault for having as many racehorses as I do, but entering races the past week or two has been really difficult for races nw3/Open/stakes races that are for 3yo+. More often than not, when I select a race I will wait a long time for the page to load only to get a 404 Not Found error. I do not have this issues with races that are 4yo+. You’re welcomed to poke at my account. I can reproduce this reliably by clicking on race 14 for 1/19.
I’m fairly certain that this is because I have 200 3yo+ races horses.
If the solution is to sell/retire ponies, I totally understand. Just let me know.
I’ve set up a separate table to track racehorse-only info (and thus all the common info racers need that’s currently spread about a bunch of other tables)…tricky bit is all the updating of that table as other things happen to a horse.
(Which, sadly, seems to have overloaded the auto-fill races script this morning, so I get to investigate that.)
FYI in the speedier script the logic to check allowance wins count vs NWx race level was missing, so your entries may not be valid (e.g. it would allow you to enter a horse with 3 allowance wins into a NW2).
(Assuming I wrote this check correctly it doesn’t look like anyone is, but head’s up anyway.)
Along these lines, I am having trouble entering horses into races from the “Upcoming Races” tab on their page. It took me to the race, and then it wouldn’t let me complete the entry. But when I go to the same race on the main page, I can complete an entry for a horse into a race.
Edit: Here’s another example of it but for a different horse in a different race. It might be because the game thinks I want to enter for a race on 11/30/1999, not 1/23/2023, but when I try to access it from the race page, it times out with a 404 Error which is weird since I was able to get into it before.
So seems to be working now, but it’s a little weird because if I go through just the main site it’s slow but eventually loads, but if I use the direct link from the forum it’s quick. No clue why that would make a difference since the URL’s are identical. But at least it loads now? Maybe it was a weird hiccup on my end.
Finally the training schedule page should now load in < 1 second as opposed to 10+ (for my large stable). It depends on how many horses you have with their own schedules, but it won’t re-load your stable schedule for every horse that uses it anymore, so that should speed things up.
