[Sugar-devel] Memorize Game sharing a Created game

Thanks, it is version 33 that was shipped, if you read the wiki carefully.
We will try downgrading. This brings up a related matter, when using a slow
Internet connection (possibly latency is an issue too) the download
frequently fails before it is complete, and there is no way of knowing
precisely unless it is a grossly reduced download,. Without testing. I am
struggling to download Memorize 33 from the OLPC wiki, at my present
location in central PNG, using mobile broadband. But we'll revert back with
our findings.

Walter has updated the ticket http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2115 saying
that Memorize 34 does not work on build 8.2.1 because that build is too
old. You'll have to install an older version of Memorize.

The version of Memorize shipped with build 8.2.1 works, but I don't know
what version that is.

Unfortunately, Memorize encountered an unexpected exception but didn't
tell you.

I don't have an XO with me so I can't install 8.2.1 and see which version
it ships with, but from memory we:

Flashed two XO-1.0 with build 8.2.1.
Started Memorize on one XO
Loaded a game
Set sharing to Neighbourhood
Found the Memorize in the Neighbourhood on the other XO
Joined Memorize with right-click

We then installed Memorize 34 and sharing no longer worked.

Sorry, I don't know.
