Today’s Updates

Friday, May 8th, 2009

A couple more updates, actually spread out over the last few days.

  • Requesting a shipment from Dr. Thomas pre-reset won’t be delivered post-reset. Good catch, Lord Finisher.
  • Hitting enter in the multi-use fields will hopefully now work in IE6. Thanks for the bug report, A Naked Jew.
  • The caffeine IV energy gain now has a random component that’ll bring it’s energy/body more in line with other caffeine sources.
  • The Spectral Curse should go away properly at 0 Energy now. Thanks PaidPiedPiperPal.
  • Running and hiding (respectively) from the SD1 in the Midgard Warehouse shouldn’t cause hiding and running now. Thanks Valera.
  • And typos in from Cryptodynamic, A Naked Jew, and another couple batches from Metro. Thanks everyone!

I’ve been letting myself get side-tracked a bit with the PvP update and really fleshing things out. It’s taking a while, but I think the end product will be worth it.


Forgot Username/Password and more

Monday, April 27th, 2009

The biggest update today is the “Forgot Something?” link in the username/password box. Entering your email address there will send you an email containing your character’s name and a link to choose a new password. If you just forgot your username but know the password, it’ll let you log back in with your existing password.

Also, items are now labeled with their requirements for Body, Energy, and Hunger. Thanks to Valliant for the suggestion.

Strange Ore should now only appear once while you’re on the quest. Thank you, Prestige, for the bug report.

The Techniques page will no longer spill out a bunch of errors if you go there shortly after login. Cheers to PaidPiedPiperPal for noticing this one before it go too irritating.

Also, thanks to Argeth, ACM, and A Naked Jew for typo reports.


Taking Requests!

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Implimented a whole slew of player suggestions today, including a bunch from the Suggestion Thread on the Forums. Here’s the list of changes:

  • The inventory now has two columns. If this gives anyone problems, be sure to send me a message. Thanks to Nytmare for the suggestion and to ACM for pointing out when I broke inventory trying to get this working.
  • If you’re fighting multiple targets, your current target will say “(Targeted)” when you mouseover their portrait. You may need to clear your cache to see this change. Thanks to MoreUmlaut for the suggestion here.
  • The skill Ghoultouched got a power boost. It now scales as you go through the game. Thanks to Lord Finisher for pointing out it wasn’t really up to snuff.
  • When you go into the Techniques screen for the first time after receiving more Techniques, those Techniques will be bolded. Good suggestion, Nytmare!
  • Larry will now clarify his somewhat cryptic comment about Purification, if you so desire. Argeth pointed out this opportunity.
  • PaidPiedPiperPal suggested so many things they get their own section: Old Pill Bottles have a few new options, you can know bind defeated Twisted Hounds, the containment suit will protect you even falling in Lake Metroplex, Andrea will help you even if you go unconscious in her fight (but not if you run), and fortune cookies now give, ya know, fortunes. Extra thanks to PaidPiedPiperPal for all the good suggestions!
  • Also cleared up a bunch of typos thanks to Argeth, The Kitchen Sink, Nosside, Metro, Mag, A Naked Jew, and ACM. Thanks everyone!

Keep an eye here and on the forum over the next couple days, because I’m going to be looking for input on features and what order people want stuff tackled.


And Bug Fixes

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

Also have a bunch of bug fixes over the last few days. Let’s go straight to the list:

  • Corrected a bug allowing massive over-donation to the gang stash. Thanks to Metro and Al for reporting this.
  • Finessed some the second chess opponent in terms of verbiage and rewards. Thanks Argeth and The Kitchen Sink.
  • You can no longer include negative numbers of a Technique in your deck. Thanks to Metro for hammering these out.
  • In The Jungle is no longer a quest item to keep it in line with the books like Chess for Beginners and Quantum Mechanics. Thanks for the suggestion, PaidPiedPiperPal.
  • Noncombats that damage you to the point you need to rest will now give better feedback. Thanks to Metro on this one.
  • Also, lots of other typos corrected thanks to Mag, Man Mobile, A Naked Jew, Bete Noire, and the ongoing efforts of Metro.


Today’s Updates

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

I’ve been updating more or less constantly, but didn’t want to clutter the updates here. The changes since my last post include:

  • Fixed some serious PHP problems related to me adding code for the new content. Thanks Nytmare!
  • Corrected a Slags Beach encounter that’d been in for a while but no one had found before. Thanks and grats Wyrd.
  • The second chess opponent should now be accepting challengers. Thanks for ferreting that out, Argeth!
  • And a whole ton of typos. Thanks to Argeth, A Naked Jew, The Kitchen Sink, and especially Metro for pointing these out.


Update Spree!

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

First off, hello to everyone from Kingdom of Loathing! Nice to see all the new faces. If you run into any bugs, even seemingly trivial stuff, please send me a message or bug report.

I believe I’m caught up on all the messages and bug reports for now, so if I missed anything, feel free to resend it. I am actually still in the process of moving, but I’m supposed to be settled with internet access by Friday.

Here is a quick rundown of the bug reports that we’ve caught up with:

  • Thanks to Man Mobile and Squarebob Fancy Pants for reporting problems with registering accounts containing a space. That should now work properly.
  • Paid Pied Piper Pal managed to find (but not fall victim too) a bug that’d kill off Lo for no good reason. He’s also helped test out a lot of the weirdness with a dying man in the Slags.
  • Everyone’s favorite Third Eye Lieutenant should respond to questions about the Lost Son in more situations. Thanks to Argeth for this one.
  • Thanks to Jick for pointing out some problems in the quest log when selling the Squatter King’s crate of medicine.
  • Expanded the explination of what’s going on when you open a crate of Eclipse. Thanks to Audesapere for pointing out the vagueness.
  • Finally fixed the border around the map images (particularly between the two on the Docks) in Firefox. Thanks to Nytmare for the nudge on this one.
  • Also cleared up a nice batch of typos from Argeth, Rikitikitavi, A Naked Jew, and Llamaman.
