|46 (5.17.2019) By request, I brought back World Class's Ignore Power-ups option for those challenges. Also,
their Close button at the passport stamp screen appears to have been altered, which stalled the auto there.
|45 (7.10.2018) Everything in World Class was changed after last Tuesday's maintenance. It's as simple as that.
|44 (4.24.2018) In World Class, the yellow Continue Game button was moved after this morning's maintenance.
|43 (3.8.2018) First Class no longer has a "side A" file. Read the Still have old graphics? tip above for
more information. The new World Class Html5 version is now inside this auto. Yes, there is flip-flopping of cards. Try not to worry about it. If it seems to get stuck
in an endless cycle, lower your Speed option. Even "1" tick slower can fix it. Everyone's computer/browser choices can hang (or not hang) at different speeds.
I temporarily removed the 4 options from World Class: Brian's Power-ups, Never Lose, Ignore Power-ups, Flash Refresh. If time permits, I may come back in the code
and try to make it win more often. If anyone has a solid map path for better stamps, I might be able to prioritize it instead of randomizing the cities. Rank
is excruciatingly slow... so let this one run overnight while you sleep!
|42/42a (3.10.2017) Both First and World Class have a new Never Lose check mark option for any of those Win X games
IN A ROW challenges. Before, when the auto lost, your challenge was reset because it clicked the "New Game" button. Now, instead, let's just
refresh your browser with the F5 function key. This keeps your progress alive and will also help 2.27.17's very difficult Mix-n-Magic's Connecting Flights
Badge, as you will never lose since the browser refresh fools the game. You will simply have to (accidentally, eventually) find a city that needs one game to
beat... such as Kathmandu. That badge will be guaranteed, using this option. You might as well turn off Classy's Flash Refresh option, since there will be
enough refreshing going on. But do note the following two "rules": 1... You can't choose your own Chat Room or it will stall after the refresh. Simply
click the yellow Start Game button instead. 2... You can't be in their pop-up window mode. The game must be embedded normally. Click their My Account at the top of
your page, type in your password, choose the Security tab on the left panel, scroll all the way to the bottom to Other Settings, uncheck "Open games in a
pop-up window". This will keep you normal like the rest of us and the F5 refresh will work properly. Their stupid pop-up window is actually just another
browser (exactly the same if it was embedded)... so why would you want an extra browser open and slowing you down? Those are the simple two rules for this new option.
|41/41a (12.16.2016) World Class got itself a new Ignore Power-ups check mark option for any of those Win games
without using any power-ups challenges.
|40/40a (5.17.2016) The Mother's Day background was removed from First Class. Also, some of you have a moved game summary
Play Again screen in World Class.
|39/39a (4.30.2016) First Class got a new Mother's Day background, which stalled both versions of the auto. Thanks to
everyone that let me know about it.
|38/38a (4.7.2016) Installed a new Flash Refresh slide bar option for both First and World Class. Simply choose
the number of minutes that suits you best and the auto will send the F5 key to your browser, refreshing your game. This will help any of you that are possibly
stalling, as well as keep things running smooth when the Flash starts to lag and gets choppy. Two rules, though, or the Flash Refresh option will not work
properly. 1... You can't pick your own room. You must click the yellow Start Game button at the top of their initial room selection page instead. 2... You
can't be in their stupid fake popup window mode. Embedded games need to stay embedded into the browser (My Account, type in your password, the Security tab on
the left panel, scroll all the way down to the bottom and uncheck their popup window mode box).
|37/37a (1.24.2016) Now some of you have a moved game summary Play Again screen in First Class. Both styles should
be covered in this version.
|36/36a (1.9.2016) Forgot one of the New Game clicks in yesterday's update. Sorry about that.
|35/35a (1.8.2016) World Class's New Game button in that bottom dark strip was moved substantially to the left. This
made the auto stall with Wait and also broke Brian's Power-ups option, of course. Thanks for letting me know, Deb.
|34/34a (11.12.2015) World Class has been converted from java to flash. If yer in for the long haul, you might want
to refresh your browser once in a while to keep things smooth.
|33/33a (6.19.2015) New Brian's Power-ups check mark option installed for those "Earn 100 power-ups"
World Class challenges out there. On average (at top 100 speed), it's earning one power-up every 3.6 seconds... so I think you'll like it very much! Thanking
you for all of us, my very dear friend Brian. Also in this update is a fix for that weird Ace of Hearts flicker stall in First Class for people using browsers
with new graphics only. Classy also now adjusts/forces everyone to use the original card deck before beginning the show.
|32/32a (12.8.2014) First Class was switched from java to flash last week. Every single drop of graphics are
completely different now.
|31 (6.6.2013) Another stall on World Class's game summary Play Again screen. They had moved/hidden the game side
1,000 pixels south, underneath your monitor... but now put it back. Thanks for letting me know, everyone.
|30 (2.14.2013) After the auto clicks a Grab powerup in World Class, sometimes the card is pulled from one of
the seven lanes... which breaks the red-black-red-black alternation. Rarely, some of those times, this caused the auto to assume things incorrectly and
there would be a stall. Nice find, Joe. I also included a Stall click after the jackpot spin because the game is currently hanging up at that point.
|29 (1.15.2013) In First Class (if you watch real close), you can see your entire game nudge north when the game summary
screen appears. After you click Play Again, it seats itself back down where it was. This was throwing off the upper-left corner of your game.
|28 (11.17.2012) Both updated for Windows 8 compatibility.
|27 (8.3.2012) Some of you still have the old unchanged game summary screen. This version covers both. Sorry for the
continuous updates, just want everyone to be happy.
|26 (8.2.2012) First Class had its game summary screen moved south 1 pixel, which stalled the auto.
|25 (7.27.2012) As I stated in the last update, World Class is now back to embedded (again) into the browser
with a new game summary Play Again button.
|24 (4.24.2012) This morning's maintenance brought a moved Play Again button in First Class. Also, they
un-embedded World Class... back to a popup window. So I am sure another update will be necessary when they embed it back into the browser, at least
for the Play Again button.
|23 (3.27.2012) World Class is also now embedded into the web browser with a different Play Again screen,
which stalled the auto.
|22 (3.13.2012) For some reason, the game site is opening First Class windows in two ways. It's yes, now
browser-embedded if you access the game normally at the opening title page where the yellow Start Game button resides. But if you choose to join
from your friend list (or the UK site), it's the old popup window style instead. This version hopefully covers both.
|21 (3.13.2012) First Class is now embedded into the web browser with a different Play Again screen,
which stalled the auto.
|20 (2.28.2012) That Play button (when hiding details in First Class) was moved again.
|19 (9.23.2011) By request, a new Richard's Pause option was installed to create a quick 5-second
delay before the auto clicks the New Game button. This will allow you the chance to pause Classy (with the Control key on your keyboard) if you
see any game that you can "save" yourself manually. This option should work in both First and World Class.
|18 (9.16.2011) Some of you accidentally clicked that Hide Details button at the end of World
Class's summary screen and the auto wasn't recognizing that different Play button. Both styles should be covered now... and thanks for letting
me know it was broken, Sharon.
|17 (8.23.2011) Their First Class game is broken, completely locking up after a matter of time. So I had
to install a refresh of your browser to keep the flow. Classy will continuously remember your four foundation piles and ensure that they are
changing. If there's no change after 60-120 seconds (depending on your Speed option), the auto will throw the F5 key in the address
bar for a refresh. You can see how many refreshes have occurred when Classy clicks the end of every game's Play Again button. Unfortunately,
this means you should probably use only Firefox or Internet Explorer since Google Chrome has a refresh issue. You can still use Chrome, but
you will probably come back to the computer in an hour and see your browser constantly refreshing itself.
|16 (4.19.2011) The new Firefox4 was having trouble finding your First Class game, so I had to adjust
some things. From now on (for First Class), hover your mouse on the upper dark strip. If you want to play World Class, put your mouse
on your score inside the game. Classy should now also play both solitaire games in Facebook.
|15 (2.25.2011) The end of game's splash screen Play Again buttons were moved around slightly.
|14 (2.11.2011) Yesterday, they changed First Class into flash. Rough fix, but thanks for letting me
know about it, everyone. Be sure to stay out of tabbed mode, as described in update 13's paragraph below me.
|13 (2.8.2011) Three hours ago after they came back from maintenance, World Class's end of game splash
screen Play Again button and New Game button (down in the dark strip) were both moved. Not sure why they do such minor
alterations... someone's obviously got way too much time on their hands over there in Redwood Chitty-Wok. Also note: You must open
your game in a normal pop-up window (not tabbed mode) and do not resize or stretch your browser. Classy needs to see your New Game
button down in the dark strip. You should have no yellow background-border whatsoever or the auto will not be able to proceed.
|12 (1.25.2011) New end of game splash screen moved the Play Again button after this morning's shutdown a
few hours ago. Easy fix. Thanks for letting me know, all of you...
|11 (11.2.2010) Whoops, didn't notice they added the black strips at the top and bottom (which moved the New Game button).
Hopefully all is well again... thanks, Chari.
|10 (11.2.2010) They changed the window size of World Class this morning (again). Easy fix. Thanks for letting me know, Chari.
|9 (10.26.2010) The location of where you type in the chat room was moved north because of the
new gifting concept in First Class. It was causing the New Gifts button to be clicked instead, only to those that had Classy's Chat
option enabled. Thanks for letting me know about it, Marie.
|8 (10.19.2010) They changed the window
sizes this morning. Easy fix. Thanks for letting me know, Gene.
|7 (7.13.2010) They moved the Play Again button during maintenance 6 hours ago in First Class. Easy fix.
Thanks for letting me know, Brenda. I will try to get in there soon and make the auto a little smarter. Not liking that win-loss ratio.
|6 (4.1.2010) This auto now plays the First Class game inside your Facebook window as well, if you are in to
challenging scores and leaderboards with your friends. If you are having any issues, Firefox might be the better browser choice.
|5 (2.9.2010) The new black strips caused a minor issue in First Class. Easy fix. If you are using
Internet Explorer, make sure you stay out of tabbed mode. Have your pop-ups open in a new window instead, as described in the
Questions "Changing out of tab mode" section of my site. Or just use Firefox, of course.
|4 (3.27.2009) They reverted back, so I fixed the non-club Blocked rooms again.
|3 (12.2.2008) Fixed non-club Blocked rooms in
First Class and also converted the auto in my latest shell (Doubly fixed, Control key pauses,
|2.3 (2.19.2006) Version 2.3 is
available until a final version 3 is 100% to my liking.
|2 (12.13.2005) This may be the desired
"2 in 1" Classy outcome that I had originally intended. It should play either
solitaire game without a problem, recognizing which game you are playing
automatically. It really smokes when you crank the speed option to 100, but VM
users may experience some sliding problems. The solution is simple. Use Sun or
slow down your speed, especially if you are not a club member (yes, it works).
This version has not been thoroughly tested yet, so let me know if you have any
Classy issues in either solitaire game. All previously registered Classy users
just received an outstanding upgrade for free. Enjoy!
|1 (12.3.2005) This auto can be
considered a pre-release for the final Classy package. I have every intention of
including the newer First Class changes into Classy as well, making this auto
perform for both online games. The default speed is set to 50 on purpose. If you
feel the need to speed this up, be warned that the java animations can cause it
to stall. Yes, it can hang on the fastest speed (100) and perform like a
champion, even for hours. But this will eventually cause some misreading of the
screen and even stop the auto once in a while. I wanted to make this hyper speed
available for the people that appreciate faster autos, yet need to remind you
fast guys that Classy will not be as intelligent, and you might need to keep an
eye on it as well. If you are heading off to bed, keep the speed less than 75 in
an effort to make it last until the morning. It's simple, if this auto is
stopping for you, slow it down! Or switch to Sun, it seems to be smoother for
me. Let me know any problems with this auto, but only if the issues occur at 50
speed or less. I will do my best to fix whatever is needed (while including the
updated First Class Solitaire) in Classy version 2. As with all of my software,
only purchase this Classy if you are happy with it in every way. And keep in
mind that this auto should be playing both Solitaires by Christmas, at least
that's my current classy intention.
