Deployment of State Channels Showcase æpp

Hello beloved æ community,

I’m happy to announce that @mpowaga and @noandrea have deployed one of the 1st State Channels showcases - the Gomoku game - on æternity which you can try with the Base aepp NOW! :tada:

All you need to get started:

  1. Base aepp on your mobile device
    • download it from iOS App Store or Google Play Store in case you still don’t have it on your mobile device
  2. Base aepp account
  3. Some testnet tokens (get some over here)
  4. Changing Fortuna-net to Testnet
    • Base aepp => Settings => Network => Testnet
  5. Enter the URL & get started!

I’ve been testing and playing around with it already and there’re a few things which could be improved for a better UX in my opinion:

  1. Warning the user straight in the beginning if he is not at the Testnet
    • @mpowaga,who built this game, has implemented this UX improvement already and it will be deployed at the next release :tada:
  2. Topping up empty accounts with some AE’s or at least sending out a warning that there aren’t any test tokens to play the game and so the user should go to to get some!

What do you think? :slight_smile: Excited to hear your thoughts and feedbacks as well!

Have a nice day! :sun_with_face:


P.S.: Please don’t get confused if you try to top up your empty account via as I’ve explained at point 2 and get this warning:

Something went wrong. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 
The node is temporarily unavailable, please try again later.
Please try again later.

It shows an error on the very first top up (but the tokens are sent), then it works! An issue regarding to this has been created already and the wrong message is going to be fixed soon :muscle:

GitHub link to the project:


Thank you, but I can’t finish the game due to regional reasons. Could you give me a screenshot and show me?

If I loose the game and refuse to cross-sign the game seems to be stuck. Also I feel there should be some more explaination on what is happening with state channels. To me it is unclear what the second player is.


works like a charm for me!

@luckybird it looks like you have a space inside your URL right after the https://

@pegah can you also add the source code to the top post


Good idea, thanks! :slight_smile:

Well, there goes my 1.2 test AE.

I delete the space ,but it remained the same

it works now, works well! i have a feedback。when the state is closed,can the closed page supply some button which can return to the base aepp?now it just stay at the closed page。
