The Autohost doesn't check each minute if it has a task to do, so sometimes it will miss by a few minutes when something is scheduled. Usually the miss is only 2-3 minutes, the same as when a turn file is uploaded and it takes a few minutes to register.
I know about the 2-3 minutes but I've never seen the 5 minutes ...
The Autohost will gen a turn if one is scheduled. I don't think it waits a min of 24 hours between gens. I could be wrong since it has been some time since I last hosted using Autohost and Ron may have changed the feature set.
Sorry, I explained myself badly. What I meant was that the game is set to gen at 0:00 and all turns are in it gens earlier, but if all turns are in _again_ before that same 0:00 than the page sets the time for the next 0:00, no longer for the first one (so +24h if that's the time between gens).
But probably not what happend here ...
As far as the turn goes, it did not cause me any problems. Nothing much to do at this stage of the game anyway and a missed turn is not that critical because it is so early.
Good to hear that, I hope it was ok for the other players too that missed it,
