I got an error when I tried to top spell sorc someone.


You encountered a error in $module. Can:5

Also, perhaps make it easier to declare? I never would have thought to go to Alliances to declare war on an opponent, and even knowing the game I had to try to remember and then hunt around for it. Perhaps the script that says "you must declare war" could have a link or the declare option there.

Kaz will have to look at the top spell (Spell6.php, Kaz) tomorrow.
The problem is its got a reference in there that does a guild check, and we don't have a guilds database, so its blowing up.

As for the Alliance thing, I'll see if I can at least put where its at in the "You must declare war" message.

Very weird thing here. I'm building temples, get down near the end of my open land, and suddenly it jumps from 29 available to 231. Turns out it was cycling through somehow to a past point and increasing my open land by reducing my built total. (Guildhalls and Hovels went down each time open land went up.)

Also, I have a screen shot of a strange page when the "priest scream...too much power" message comes up. Bottom text shifts left and the action button disappears. Give me an email address to send it to if you want to see it. Also, minor edits to text made below.

OLD: One of your priests screams at you. Becareful weilding so much power, that is how the island of Maxim was destroyed!

NEW: One of your priests screams at you, "Be careful wielding so much power; that is how the island of Maxim was destroyed!"

Should be fixed.

It's weird, that bug would have been in Massacre from the beginning and no one ever mentioned it to me.

I need more information on this one. No idea where to even start looking. You sure you were not being sorced?

That'll be cos the backlash page has the form embedded into it, and Teanos probably didn't realise. He went through yesturday after deleting the old action buttons. Should be a quick fix

Will get on that one a bit later as its just aesthetic.

I did it twice just to be sure. Each time I would build 16 temples at a time with 231 open land, get down to something like 23 open land (don't know exact number) and build 16 only to have it reset to 231. That's when I noticed that my Hovels and Guildhalls went from the low 2000s to the high 1900s.

Agreed, but as I said in an earlier email, I spent many many years proofreading and editing, so it's a small service I can offer.

Not sure about this.. may want to ask Nether.

But i declared on him earlier today to take him down.. didn't end up killing him.

But i'm positive someone else killed him. I'm not sure of their character name and wont say the kingdom name.

YET i am still declared war on him after he restarted.

This hurts him more than me, because i can't declare on anyone cause i'm bigger... but i can hit him whenever i want if i choose to without having to declare.

"17577 of our peasants and 3 Shakes were murdered last night. The people are talking bad about you, they no longer feel safe. 0 Ingin, 0 Nubash, 0 Bunar, 99 Shakes left in the night."

I'm fairly sure 'Shakes' should be 'Opulents'.

Fixed.

When I corrected the game mode after being pointed out that it was not as described, I forgot one little snag.

Builds were tied to the game mode.

They should be back now.

May be an issue with the Declared War Downhit function....


So Nether was coming to get me (thanks again ot the 2mil no forted kingdom) and he tried to scout once.. failed.. i hit him 3 times and then was waiting.

At the point where we started he had 80% my land.. so i shouldnt be able to declare war... i hit thrice, making that number even less, but i was allowed to declare war :P

I wasn't sure why... when i looked at my main page he had tried hitting me.. but this was AFTER i declared.


Basically i could down declare on him just because he failed a scout (no war or GR hits)
