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.

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.

I'd like to be able to buy a banana peel to drop on the boardwalk to trip up my competitors. :p

That idea is brilliant and definitely deserves a coconut. So we need a banana stall and a coconut shy. Possible update?

To be up to date with reality we should also be able to use explosives and blast rides.

When I got kicked out riding the Helter Skelter as the last player the roller coaster and big wheel were out of clues as well. I wasn't sure if they were supposed to drop again then so I didn't think about it.

Yeti, while you're fixing all these things, do you think you can work some magic on my computer since it happened to crash during a Furore?

Never hurts to ask. ;)

Not sure if this is a bug or not. During the 15:30 furore today, I was at 19/20 clues and tried a steal for the one remaining clue I needed. Bought some candy, the youths took it, and I selected the one person who had this clue - but nothing. Is it sometimes meant to happen that we don't get the clue even if it is available for a steal?

You probably tried to steal the person's starter clue. That's the only condition under which it fails prior to the first clue drop (after that starter clues are fair game).

Does this mean you lose a steal?

Thanks Yeti, but this occurred toward the later stages of the game. So other clues had 'dropped' after the starter clue.

Do you mean that a player's starter clue is never available to steal?

I guess that means that we all get different starter clues too?
