With the firm application of bolt cutters the rusty padlock on the gates of the Boardwalk has been prised off. For a small fee at the ticket booth Detectives can take some down time to wander around the Boardwalk.

Whilst familiarising yourselves with the layout is a great idea, the real meat of the Boardwalk is the Carousel Furore; the times for these are listed on the case tab. The main way to get tickets is by solving cases at Really Really Hard or above in difficulty (the higher the difficulty, the better your chances). Your best chances of getting a ticket are an hour before a Furore is due to start, but if the tickets are gone they're gone.

Finally there is a second type of ticket; a back-up ticket. They will not be hard to find.

Happy sleuthing, and as ever please let me know when the bugs crop up and I'll deal with them ASAP.

After one of my trades was accepted by a player, another player was able to make the same trade from me, even though it was no longer there.

It's been a long time coming, but the bug fix and adjustments patch has arrived! Tyrano and Keira, your trade problems are probably still about. Please let me know if they happen again with as much detail as possible (particularly if an AI was involved).

Significant bug fixes:

* Players who have had problems with Furores kicking them out instead of letting them start should no longer have this problem.

* The Mirror Clues should be displayed properly on the case page.


Significant adjustments:

* There'll now be eight Furores a day, but players are limited to two tickets.

* There's a Furore schedule in the City Hall, so they can be viewed anywhere except Shangri-La.

* An accessory can now be stored almost entirely without complaint with Jonny the cotton candy seller.

* After 40 minutes the Hall of Mirrors will become significantly easier to solve.

* Any players engaging in espionage will now find there's a delay between uses.

* Clues will immediately re-drop after a player finishes the Furore.

* The 'community clue' locations, i.e. the helter skelter, cinema and telescope will potentially change clues with a clue drop, making them worth revisiting.

* It's now only possible to gain one clue at a time from the roller coaster (though you will still have up to three chances to get that one clue).

* If you're the last player standing the big wheel and roller coaster queues will disappear.

* A badly written Furore read me has appeared.

* Furore ticket offers can be turned off from the Options menu on the Detective Page.

As ever please let me know if you spot any bugs/typos. There's good odds I'll be hanging out in chat whilst Furores are going on for the near future, so feel free to drop in there if there's any problems.

Hey Sindy. :-) I'd have figured most nemesis tasks you have to work towards would give you the chance to get a ticket? Just so long as you can do really really hard cases or above you're in with a chance anywhere in the world.

Hi Yeti,

Please take a notice for this bug, yeti

Do you mean the Furore at 00:30, offered at 00:33? I thought I'd gotten that bug.

Did you get through the accuse pages quickly, or did you accuse someone, do something else for a few minutes, then return to the accuse page and went through to the ticket screen?

I am quite sure it's a bug, Yeti. Actually I was trying to hunt the ticket so I noticed the time very carefully. And when the time just passed 00:30, so I keep solving the cases and I got the ticket. It said that it's for the furore at 00:30 and the current time displayed at that page is 00:33 (the same page).

The same thing happened to Diva at 1:00 too (and Diva also took a picture for it).
