View Full Version : Army Cost Bug - Fixed

The bug that was costing all of the money has been corrected. Since we ALL were hit by it, I don't think I'm going to try to repay everyone individually. It's beta - sorry. However, I had the system change anyone's Geos that were negative to be an even 0, to start getting caught up. I know it's not perfectly fair, but I don't have time (or desire) to go through everyone one at a time and correct it.

The bug was quite simple, but took me a while to catch. On the financial info page it shows how much each troop costs. In the update script, it takes away 1/288th of that amount every update (which is every five minutes, or 288 times perday). I had done that correctly, but I had it take away the 1 Geo army cost EVERY time, rather than just 1/288th of it.

Anyhow, things should be good to go. Don't beg for more money back, because you won't get it. We all lost some, myself included.

Well I lost quite a lot but that can't be helped.

Thanks for taking the time to fix it Mickey! "I need a beer" - an Irish saying! ;)

Do I sense satire here?

If so, give the guy a break! It's not like he is an ambulance driver and we are having a heart-attack or something...

ALL VIRTUAL AND CAN BE HANDLED EASILY...

RELAX...

If you count the number of posts and threads, yes he wasn't that fast. But, he doesn't have to be fast.

I am relaxed... I invited the concept ;)

when i count the number of posts and threads i get what?
we're talking about real time here :D and it just took 2 hours i believe, when i started a thread and someone else opened one alerting to the issue.
ofcourse i have no clue when he fixed it cause i had to leave, and with me did most of my troops ;)

Who cares?? It's fixed now.

If you two want to continue this pointless conversation, do it via PM.

I was about to say something but then WAR_PEACE sent me like 1K geos... sweet. :lol:

Anyway, I still think this money needs to come from the bank because then we can allow interest to repay troop costs. ;)
