Missing MARDEK Saves

◊ Posted by A β Pseudolonewolf

A few people have already explained the solution to this in comments and things, but I'm writing this so then I can link people to it instead of explaining the same thing over and over again in PMs.

If you had MARDEK saved games on the old Fig Hunter site, you may notice that they are missing from this version. They're not gone as such; it's just that Flash saves are linked to the url, meaning that those saves are linked to www.fighunter.com, but you're now playing on bubbles.fighunter.com.
When I move this version of the site to the www address - whenever that may be - they'll come back, but for now, it's possible to find and move the saves so you can play them again.

Irritatingly, the location of these files differs based on your operating system... I use Windows Vista, and this is where they are for me; they may be the same on Windows 7 as well:

C:Users[username]AppDataRoamingMacromediaFlash Player#SharedObjects[random string]

Replace [username] with your username on your computer, of course. [random string] could be anything; something like UWJUCWE, maybe. You'll know it when you see it.

From that folder, you'll need to find the 'www.fighunter.com' folder, and inside are your saves. You'll need to make a new 'bubbles.fighunter.com' folder if there isn't one already, then just copy and paste them from one folder to the other.

There's not really anything I can do to make this easier, since how Flash saves is not within my control (if it was, I'd let you choose the location for the saves).

Anyway, hopefully this is of some help to at least someone.

Age set to 0

Some accounts have apparently got their age set to 0.
I've changed a few dates of birth manually when people approach me about it, and when I do, I usually notice that the month and day are set correctly, but the year is 2011.

I don't know whether this is a bug, or simple carelessness on the part of the people signing up. I mean, most people didn't encounter this problem...

Anyway, if your age IS set to 0, please post here, with your date of birth, and I'll fix it for you.
I'd also appreciate it if you'd tell me whether you were careful or not when filling up the join form... Please don't just lie to look good; if there's no problem to solve, that will spare me the time and effort of looking into it.

Please don't PM me about bugs...

If you find something broken somewhere, please don't PM me about it. There's a 'To Do List' thread which is 'sticky' at the moment, so it's best if you post about things there.

If you PM me, that means that I have to either act on it as soon as I read the PM, or I have to leave the PM open in a tab to remind myself. Neither of these things are desirable, and they rather add to the stress I'm already having to endure from working on so many things at once...

If however you post in that thread, I can leave it in my Messages inbox, and can get around to it when I'm ready, when I have the time, then I can mark it as read when it's done. It might also make other people less likely to report the same problem.

Speaking of that thread... It's full of things that I've still not got around to doing. I'm trying to work by a timetable at the moment, and much of my day is consumed by working on Miasmon (which I've been doing in a very motivated and focused kind of way), or tedious real-life necessities like eating and sleeping and making sure I'm not too unbearably unclean.
I've got basically no time set aside for working on the site, so expect progress to be very slow for a while. I'll get to things 'when I can'.
