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.

I got logged out of the carousel finish line chat by mistake and there is no way back in there :(

Today at the 03:45 furore, Joseph Hollis managed to steal from me twice within the space of seconds. He got both mirror clues (no-one else had them). I thought the bots had a waiting interval between steals just like the rest of us - or is that not the case? I can't remember anything like this happening before.

I don't think the bots have to worry about the interval, though they are limited in the number of steals they can do. It's just bad luck to get robbed twice at once by the same bot.

Thanks, Yeti. I'd call it 'bad luck and how'. Imagine if all 3 bots did this to you in a furore. Spooky : o

Yes, the bots have some perks but also disadvantages. Even when they have all the passwords it takes them forever to finish.

It's Westworld Yeti style.

Every time the bots get to the password stage they're dumb founded by the fact they don't actually have a body to type with. Takes 'em a while to work things through.

Every now and then, I was sent back to the map page while playing the pinball machine during a Furore (22:00 SST today). What really got me was that it seemed to happen only when I wasn't getting high scores like 14 and 32 (naturally I couldn't check my score after being kicked out but I did not win clues off these); I managed to get 2 clues off it later and it behaved normally then. This feels like another double-click issue?

And though I'd gotten to the Boardwalk from Cairo on the seaplane, when I tried to leave, I was deposited in NY after clicking on a link that said "Return to *Battery Boardwalk*". Huh?
