A number of bug fixes and adjustments have been popped into the game today with relation to the Boardwalk content.

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. Happy Sleuthing.

Hopefully it won’t happen again any time soon Yeti but next time I’ll try to remember to check if the mail icon is still there.

Bela, yes I had to log back in to sleuth and how did have I have my cotton candy taken away a second time? Very easily. As soon as I logged back in I immediately bought another one and went straight to the helter skelter

Aren't the clues supposed to be redistributed after someone finishes the furore? That's what usually seems to happen. However, today at the 10:15 furore, there was no message when Sumia finished and the clues weren't redistributed. Odd. I managed to get what I needed from the Penny Arcade, but I'm sensing a glitch - no?

I had a problem in the arcade at the 19:15 Furore. I paid and it would count down to pull the lever time, but when I tried it would freeze and clicking a second time sent me back to the map. Luckily I didn't get sent to the log in page.

Too many problems to tell you here. I'll send a pm.

At the 0030 Furore I rode the rugs as the last player standing and got kicked to the login screen. Lost my cotton candy (now I'll NEVER get that $1 back!), gummed up the ride, and got no clue. Not that it affected the outcome - dead last is dead last be it by an inch or a mile - but thought you should know.

Oh my ... and you're tied with hands and feet to that furore :( It doesn't stop after acquiring a pet. You still need brass rings for the upkeep.

I feel so tired all in a sudden.

It might be a cotton candy issue on the helter skelter then, since so many people are mentioning having it when they get kicked off. That helps narrow down what's going on.

Was that a repeated problem with the pinball machine, shell?

BadAss, a pet is for life not just for.. No I'm joking. There is upkeep on the pet, but you don't have to use rings on it; there is a straight up cash option. No one's hit that point yet though, if the pets are looked after they're quite hardy.

During that match it happened everytime I tried the pinball machine. The following furore, I had no problem. Same with the one I just finished.
I wonder if two or more people trying to pull the lever at the same time could cause that. Because the page would freeze when I pulled the lever, making me repeatedly clicking to have something happen. So basically I'm wondering if I got stuck in an incomplete action, so everytime I tried i couldn't do anything at the pinball machine.
Am I remotely making sense?

This was a very frustrating furore. The helter skelter acted up again and booted me back to the login page. I didn’t bother to try it a second time, once was enough. I did manage to remember to check if the Sleuth Mail icon was there and it was. The worst part was waiting around for my final clue. Everyone had finished so I thought that the clue would show up fairly quickly but it took at least 30 minutes for it to drop. The rides said that the clues had been redistributed but none offered new one ones. Then both the roller coaster and the big wheel said there were no canisters available. I finally got the clue with the mirrors. One good thing about the waiting part, I found the time to vacuum my living room. :-D

shell, with multiple clicks it'll send multiple requests to the game. It's only your first click that'll go through, the other ones will think you're trying to trick the pin ball machine (it doesn't like being tricked!) Effectively it should still be scoring you and giving you a clue if you win one, it's just not high enough.

Thank you for keeping an eye out for that SMail icon Blanche, that's very helpful. As for your missing clue, the Mirror clues always stay in the hall of mirrors. They just restock there during redistribution, they don't go out and about to the other locations. After 40 minutes they'll be easier to find, but that's it. So if you're ever missing a mirror clue at the end again, you know where to go.
