Major Command Game Turn Notifier

Firefox Game Turn Notifier

and RSS Play Risk Online

Keeping up with a lot of turns can really fill up your email inbox.  Or sometimes a turn email can get lost in the fray.

Now there are two new ways to keep on top of your turns.

RSS Feed

Every player now has their own RSS feed.  It looks like the example below:

Keep in mind that you need to replace Badorties with your own username

Then just paste that into your RSS reader and you will get something like this (google reader).

You can click any of those numbers to take you to the game.

If you need a more immediate way to get notified for your turns, then try this Firefox extension: Major Command Game Turn Notifier

After you install it, in Firefox go to Tools >>Addons >>Extensions and click Options on the Notifier.  You can then put in your username, like so.

After this is done, you should see a small grey or yellow square in the bottom right of your Firefox window.

Grey means you don’t have any turns.

Yellow means you have a turn to take.

Cool! Great work by Evan and Codanostra on these features so be sure to give them a pat on the back.

  1. Cross-posting with the thread: With Chrome + Google Reader, I’m using the Google Reader Notifier extension as the Poor Man’s version of the Firefox app until Coda cranks out a Chrome version. Seems serviceable for the time being.

  2. the firefox add-on info needs updating. it’s missing the “Didn’t show up at first so I had to right-click on my navigation toolbar, select customize then drag the major command notifier to the toolbar.”-part.

  3. I noticed it doesn’t work with FF 8. Any plans to upgrade it? Also, replacing the yellow and grey square icons with the red and grey die mentioned earlier this year . I can provide graphics, if desired.
