Continue a game after dropping out happens

#1 by Vo_ENG

Hi everyone,

I am testing an auction experiment which is a multiplayer game.
I want all participants to start an auction at the same time so I set a waiting page before each auction round.
However, I ran several experiments and some of them encounter an issue where one participant dropped out and the others were stuck on the waiting page.
My questions are:
1) How do I make my experiment detect if someone closes the window? 
2) How do I make my experiment proceed to the next page after detecting dropped-out participants? 
3) Could I replace the dropped-out participants with bots to maintain the number of players in the remaining rounds?
