Patch 3.1.13

Postby shapesifter13 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 6:42 pm

Hey Townies,

We have a whole heap of new cosmetic items coming your way! While we have been working on different improvements to our Unity versions of the game our artist has been hard at work on some sweet new cosmetics. We will be making some older cosmetics purchasable with Merit Points , and Taunts will be purchasable with Merit Points now as well! Check out everything that has changed below:

NEW FEATURES
• Cosmetics - Characters: Hex Master, Consort, Hypnotist and Vigilante.
• Cosmetics - Pets: Owl.
• Cosmetics - Houses: Aquarium, Sphinx, and Tipi.
• Cosmetics - Backgrounds: Alien, Army, and Construction.
• Cosmetics - The following are now purchasable with Merit Points: Crusader, Poisoner, Medusa, and all Taunts.

IMPROVEMENTS
• Game - Role Card - When dead, the empty role card now includes a transparent tombstone graphic.
• Game - Mobile only - the copy button visible on each chat log entry has been removed .To copy a chat message, simply press and hold the message until the message is copied.
• Game - For the Vampire Hunter, overheard vampire chats now have a unique style.

BUG FIXES
• Burger Menu - Help button now properly directs to FAQ page.
• General - Updated support email address to support@blankmediagames.zendesk.com
• General - Mobile - Background music/sounds from other applications are now allowed to play again. Play your own music again!
• General - Mobile - Fixed logging out via burger menu sometimes resulting in Disconnected popup.
• Login - Fixed stutter when music starts to play.
• Home Live Tile - Fixed card game (NSFW) missing Spanish translation.
• Friends - Online friends light pip now properly changes to green (online) after they leave a game.
• Pick Names screen - (Spanish Mobile) - fixed screen header text improperly wrapping.
• Pick Names screen - Mobile - moved name input up even more because it still overlaps chat on iPhoneX.
• Game - Fixed the Chat filter potentially showing misleading information to Vampire Hunters.
• Game - Fixed issue with Last Will improperly allowing some rich text markup (like red or green text, for instance). This was not compatible with all clients.
• Game - Mobile - Last Will Close Without Save button is fixed to no longer send will to chat.

CRASH FIXES
• Disk full errors are handled better and reported to the player to take action.

It's an issue from a security standpoint. There's a reason why games don't allow it.
Do not PM me about your open appeal. It will be ignored.

DISCLAIMER: I am a Moderator of the forums and the game.
I manage the clutter so the developers can do their work.
My voice and my opinions are of my own and shouldn't be taken as the
word of the developers (although I may be slightly more informed of
certain matters). Therefore, rude remarks I may occasionally make
should not impact the reputation of the developers.
Cheers.

Hooray! More Cosmetics sounds like more money for BMG in lieu of a dying playerbase.

Please keep in mind that the creation of cosmetics does not require a developer, thus it does not affect the speed how the game is coded.
Visit my role suggestions and give me feedback: http://www.blankmediagames.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=28949

I tend to write small stories into my will and dislike Forgers and Janitors for removing them.

If you see a Grim Reaper called 'Zoroark', know that you might have encountered me.

Yes.

I certainly wouldn't give them a stamp of approval for fixing all of the stream crashes on lobby creation once this patch was pushed to the server.... because that probably won't happen.

(plus playing with a town of half default names who have disconnected is preferable.

Great changes. Honestly, I was kind of scared when I saw a player with a coloured last will. The text changing thing does not really fit ToS.

Only one person can go through it and you just have to wait, others are in your position, and sending other emails doesn't help because it deletes the older email that would've been closer to being answered

Any issues crashes on Unity should be automatically recorded for us to look through. We are at an all time low % of crashes, but they do still occur from time to time for certain users, or in certain situations.

Please don't post your email on a live public forum. This is for your safety. I've removed the email.

If you've sent an email in to support@blankmediagames.zendesk.com, Shapesifter will get to it when he can. Please stay patient. Thanks.

TBH They should keep it removed, because the way it was had a few problems:

- Formatted wills would show up as a markup language mess and be hard to read on web version
- Pressing the "Copy to Chat" would copy the whole thing with the formatting codes still present leading to a bunch of markup syntax
- You could write info into your will that only players using Web would be able to read, by simply incasing it in <mark> or <size=1> since web cant see the formatting-
- It was impossible to remove the formatting codes from your will without erasing the entire thing.
- Only worked in wills, couldnt format Death Notes or Notes,
- No max or min font size, so you could break the UI.

there possibly are security issues as well depending on what markup options where avalible. . (eg, if there was one for executing scripts or something, that would be bad..)

if there where to add it back then they should make it an offical feature, (that works on all versions of the game..)
