Okay. So your feeling pretty good and you open an Almost impossible case. You search the crime scene and, *gasp* 3 out of the 4 pieces of evidence are for your contact! Oh happy day right?! Wrong. It can take for-ev-er (whine that out like any normal three-year-old) to click three times though 11 suspects (and then it probably will be the 4th peice anyway) and I have DSl. I shudder to consider what dial up *shudder* have to go through. Don't worry I'm getting to my point.

Is there anyway a simple "Use contact to identify <insert evidence here>" link could be added to the screen? That would be really really neat.

An "all-in-one" button would be interesting, but if you just go down the list, clicking each suspect once, wait a little for the page to come up with a "no" probably, and then go to Case Overview to see who it belonged to, you'll see it's easier than doing it one-by-one. :D

Tyrone, you actually don't have to use your mouse to hit the back button. Just hit backspace on your keyboard, and the page before should appear.

Thanks, I'll try that.

Can I add my vote for in support of Cicero's suggestion? In fact, I don't mind what form it takes, as long as the information is available quickly and easily.

I love this game. I DO NOT want to see it get any easier ...

BUT

the one issue I have is with the response time of the site. I am on dial-up at home and sometimes I can struggle to complete 3 cases in an hour! Even when using broadband I experience delays from time to time.

I don't see why information that your character is "entitled" to through a contact cannot be given without the need to ask about every single suspect individually. Frankly, I find this aspect of the game just plain boring, particularly if the site is slow in responding. It's the one thing that spoils this game, in my opinion.

I agree with arthur. I hate it especially when I need to check AI cases with my contact for team mates. Takes so long...

*pokes my last post* I think that's a common solution.

"An 'all-in-one' button would be interesting, but if you just go down the list, clicking each suspect once, wait a little for the page to come up with a 'no' probably, and then go to Case Overview to see who it belonged to, you'll see it's easier than doing it one-by-one. :D"
