Re: Minor bugs

Thanks for the quick fix on something that's unlikely to effect more than a handful of people. When I'm on the stat farming part of my cycle, I get 2 or 3 thousand at a time. Granted it's not the only thing I do, still, to get it that high has taken well over a year. It's just my small way of scalin...

Re: Minor bugs

Is there a max stat cap? I've got my base INT up to 32767. The past couple days, I've farmed it up to ~32900. When I log in the next day, it's back down to 32767. It's happened two days running, so I'm wondering if there's something magical about 32767 (since it's 7FFF in hex). Other stats, XP, chip...

Day 7
Final stats:

Strength: 414 (160)
Intellect: 175 (77)
Reflexes: 205 (104)

Total: 794

Got to the Camp too late, and failed to get some of the really big-ticket strength boosters.
Like, say, the suspicious syringe. With that... I would still be 2 points shy of Mara. But it'd be closer!
