    I think it's 2 bashes or 1 heals per day, unless you somehow get more use points.

    Bug with Small Elf Girl Quest


    My Questbook shows the wrong name of the town.

    POSSIBLE SPOLIERS (Highlight between the pipes to see)

    | The Bartender told me that I should go to Tor. After I speak to Petra in the Tattoo shop, my Questbook shows the wrong name of the town. It says Glorfindal, but Petra's Tattoo Salon is in Tor. I think the Tattoo Salon is meant to be in Glorfindal as that's the elven city and the Elf girl told me she dropped her toy by the wagon when they were leaving. So why would the toy be in Tor instead of Glorfindal?

    - The elvish girl and her lost toy -
    In Glorfindal the hero found that Petra of Petra's Tattoo Salon may have found just such a toy, but she sent you out to find a few magic blooms.
    The hero met a crying elven child in Romar who misses her toy.

    I went to the Great Kegs of Ale Inn at Qexelcrag. The barkeep was called Cedric like the other barkeeps. I went to speak to him and chose the Gems option. On the screen where you choose what kind of elixir you want to buy, the name of the Inn said "Ye Ugly Wench" instead of "Great Kegs of Ale".

    The interface keeps confusing itself. When I first enter the "Great Kegs of Ale" I am taken straight to the Talk To Cedric screen, the only option is Rumours. I don't see the Gems and Bribe options, though they do appear later.
    When I "Return to the Inn", I get the normal Inn options (e.g. Violet, Seth etc), but again, I am told I am at Ye Ugly Wench, when I'm really at Great Kegs of Ale. The Return to city option correctly says Return to Qexelcrag.

    The deal with the quest and with the inn, is that both of these use variables to control the names of things within. But the people who originally wrote add-ons (like the city of dwarves, and the quest for the toy) sometimes hardcode the names, or sometimes try and do a search and replace (search for "Ye Ugly Wench" and replace it with "Great Kegs of Ale". Again, the problem is that the authors of these add-ons may not be thorough.

    I'll take a closer look at these tomorrow, when Im in the office, to see if I can clean them up.

    Two small nitpicks:
    When you choose what class you want to be, every description has a capital first letter, except for paladins.
    When you battle some dude, god of bats, there should be a space between the comma and "god of bats".

    I'm getting disconnected far too often... every other action! And I AM being patient and not hammering the server too frequently - I'm waiting about 5-10 seconds on each page (when fighting).

    Ive seen this problem before, but only when I have more than one browser window open on the forums. Its been discussed a number of times, with that usually being the culprit.

    Do you have another window open?

    Ok, this INN thing is a bit of a deal. Id suggest we live with it's weirdness, for now, because its ALOT of rewrite to make it work right.

    Capitalization and "Vampirus, the Bat God" both corrected.

    Nope. I have 5 tabs open but nothing particularly heavy. Does a tab count as a window?

    Sometimes the page loads 99% in the status bar, but then hangs. Eventually it tells me that something timed out. It then dumps some code and tells me try again.

    Don't wait the 5-10 seconds between clicks. I'm browsing with only one window open, and as long as I'm snappy about making my decisions I'm fine but if I need to stop to read something I'll get disconnected. It's not as bad as it was, but it still happens too often.

    Yes, another tab counts as another window. In the beginning there were alot of issues with this. Once people stopped having 2 connections to the same site (and deuling php sessions), they said thier problems went away.

    Its still happening to you, and you only have one window open? I'll take another look at the session code, but at this point Im not sure why it would do that. Its not happening to me anymore (and it was before).

    Yea that happens to me all the time and I rarely have more than one window open to the forum.
    Dear God. What is it like in your funny little brains? It must be so boring.
