The Amazing Race 31 cast added & SSL

Author Brant    Category All, Cast Photos, Miscellaneous     Tags

The cast for The Amazing Race 31 was added to all of the simulators. This season features many competitors from other reality television shows.

Please report if you see any bugs.

Additionally, BrantSteele.com had a security update with the addition of SSL. This should reduce the warnings that web browsers generate for websites without it. The only errors you should see now are custom seasons where you used your own images that don’t include ‘https’ at the start. A way to handle these images is being looked into. If this test goes well, BrantSteele.net will likely be updated with SSL in May.

Cast Photo Organizational Change

Author Brant    Category All, Cast Photos     Tags

Due to user request, I added an attribute to distinguish official cast photos from unofficial ones.

Each show will have just one set of “official” cast photos per season – which typically consists of the officially released photos of the characters/contestants active on that season. For example, the cast photos for the 32 finalists for Survivor Cambodia – Second Chance are now considered unofficial along with Mellisa McNulty from Survivor Fiji. Most recent Big Brother, Survivor, and The Amazing Race seasons have multiple sets of cast photos, but just one set will be considered official.

An attribute has also been added for ‘host’ images, which are also considered unofficial. There are only 2 host images currently included.

On BrantSteele.net, unofficial cast photos and host photos will no longer show up in Random Mode. On the BrantSteele.com simulators, you will have the option to use these or exclude these in your Random Cast.

If any cast photos are currently added that you consider Unofficial, please report them for review. Thank you. I believe a few contestants were added to various shows who didn’t actually compete in the seasons.

Using the above ‘Exclude’ option for Unofficial photos should prevent the 32 second chance candidate cast photos from appearing in your simulation.

Bug Fixes, including Big Brother Template

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates, Cast Photos     Tags

A few bugs were fixed with the Big Brother interactive template that have been reported for years. At the end of the season in interactive style, simulator users were unable to go back and see who voted for who if their houseguest reached the final two. This is now possible after viewing the Winner page during the finale. Similarly these can be viewed either after seeing your eviction if you’re not on the jury, or at the end of the season if you are on jury.

Another glitch was fixed where the simulator treated “change relationships each week” as an interactive simulation and limited display of alliances and votes. Finally, a more recent bug where custom events only worked in rare scenarios was fixed. Beyond these bug fixes, there’s still a plan to add the Big Brother Template to the .com server and add saving and voting charts in the future.

Thanks to the users who reported these bugs and helped provide details and instructions to replicate them over email, social media, and the Discord server.

Other bugs fixed:
– When clicking the BB20 logo in Seasons, the link followed to BB19.
– Random cast in Celebrity Big Brother contained duplicate houseguests 50% of the time when ‘all male’ or ‘all female’ options were selected.
– When the final person left with a gift bag won HoH in Celebrity Big Brother, the week did not progress correctly.
– Automatic black & white function on the .net Big Brother and .net Survivor simulators didn’t work in some browsers.
– Added Katrina Kozar from MasterChef season 6, who had been skipped before.
– Added two new houseguests from BBUK season 19.

Update: Another scenario was found where the votes and alliances were still not available at the end of the season. This has been corrected now.
