well, my sidekick has been kidnapped, so I imagine I can't use the MBM until I rescue her anyway.

Didn't scan the thread, so I don't know if this has already been brought up, but...

smashed wrecker/ wrecked smasher is automatically going to the "I'm sorry, I didn't get that. What do you want to do?" message as soon as you encounter him. I know he's got some unique text, because I can see it before the page refreshes.

Are you sure this isn't some script you are running? Because I managed to get the description - it's in the wiki.

I don't run any scripts.

It's been going on since retcon rolled out, and it's only with those guys in the Tavern... but it doesn't happen with every drunkard pairing, so with retcon making them random it's something I tended to forget about. If it was something on my end, shouldn't it be happening with other enemy encounters?

The way those are coded, I don't think it's possible for one set to behave differently than the others. The only differences are a little bit of text, and I don't think text could force a page reload like that. But I'll check their descriptions. Can anyone else duplicate?

When trying to recycle "all" of nothing (by accident) it puts this up:
Workbench - Recyclonizer


Warning: mysql_num_rows() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/twilight/public_html/recyclonizer.php on line 90

Warning: mysql_fetch_array() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/twilight/public_html/recyclonizer.php on line 91
You seem to be trying to add zero or fewer of that item, which doesn't make any sense.

I'm thinking this could be a bit more dramatic in the chat message, maybe.

Things seem somewhat busier on Teeter Street tonight. A quick glance indicates a few other heroes seem to be patrolling Teeter Street this evening.

There's a smudge on the right side. I'm too lazy to upload an image, but if you still can't see it I will.

Edit: corrected, please remove. I also believe Cris's report above about the hyde text was corrected.

It seems like "Big Trouble" and "Alphabet Soup" are added for 60 minutes plus your turn length.
However, it seems that unlike regular turn length which is limited by 4 minutes, this can be less than 4 minutes.

This is a typo, but it is not a spelling error NOR a grammatical error. Hopefully this is a good place for it:

the Game Manual (section "Character stats and info") claims that the heroing day starts at 7pm. However, also in the Manual, in the section entitled "Time, Turns and Adventures" it says 6pm.

6pm is what actually happens in the game
(barring Precompetion)

This may be confusing to new players, or returning ones.

Not sure whetever it's appropriate to bring it up here but - the polytechnic tunic description mentions 'being able to resist four different kinds of elements', but the item only grants fire resistance.

Wiki listed it as giving resist to fire, ice, electric and acid - perhaps it actually did in the past but was nerfed and the description left the same?

edit: so either the description could be changed or (which I'd prefer) the resistance to four elements be put in, although if 10% is too much it could be 5% or something like that.
Accounts: Kurg is my main, then there's Zap/Zorzos/Kalios who are (mostly)unused multis.

Unless it's supposed to be like this, but I highly doubt it =P
Weird but not exactly abusable as buying it takes a turn(and 94 profit for a turn spent isn't very impressive).

I've adjusted the price down a touch, but will leave the swing with higher resale as a +chips adventure for the observant. At the new price it's not out of line with the zone.

I think this got typoed way back when I rejiggered some of the bonuses. Surprising it made it this long before being noticed. Set back the way it was.

Got the two images, thanks. I upgraded my OS about a month ago, and apparently it's recalibrated my monitors. I'm having trouble seeing some of this stuff. Maybe I'll get used to it, or there may be more of this in the future.

The only reason I'm seeing them is that when they are uploaded to the wiki they are magnified so everything shows up.

TNT can do 0 damage. In my case it was against triumphant and terrible titan, but I supposed any foe with physical resistance will do.

I don't know if this is a bug or feature, but +chip sidekicks (tested with Extortionist and Noble) don't have any effect on non-combats while skills and equipment do.

Ex. In the Golden Wooden Nickel with +50% from items and skills and the Extortionist which gives +30%, all combats showed an 80% increase while the Jackpot! non-combat only gave a 50% increase.

It seems that +FT doesn't apply to the Stranglers. If it doesn't apply to them, it probably doesn't apply to Battle of the Bands or April Fool's foes.

This bug also expresses itself with the Majestic Nobel. Testing on my alt, her chip drops on the rooftops went from 172 to 316 simply by shrugging off Nature vs. Nurture.

It seems Fast Learner lets you use SQUID discs, even when you don't have a player. You get poor returns (got 1 XP from two Forgotten Etiquettes), but still...

Curiouser and curiouser.

Just used a 30 Days to Greater Humility without a player. Expected gain is 30-40. I got 3.

Yeah yeah yeah, multiposting, but...

Fast Learner, with no points, adds 10% to your player's effectiveness. Is seems that Fast Learner, with no player, still gives you its bonus, which is why I got 10% of the value for '30 Days...' It seems it's counting as a player, and then giving you its bonus to your current player. In other words, 0+10%.

Has the sidekick + sidekick increasing buff/item bug been fixed? I don't want to use Nurture vs Nature or my judo kid gloves if they're negating any positive effects.

not yet. I only know it applies to chips, not necessarily to anything else.

Minor protection missing with the new computer tricks: while converting codes, you can swap out the computer you're using. It doesn't alter the decrypting time, and there isn't a reason to do so (unless you wanted to Retcon mid-decrypt, I guess), but it probably should be locked out like with mangled data plates.

I have no idea if this is expected behaviour or not:

But I was getting negative chips dropping from a certain noncombat adventure in the Back of the House. That should lead to a folder of screenshots in Google Documents.

Negative chips are never expected behavior. I've had one other report. Looking into it.
