Petition Details and ChatPetition ID 418: Place Program: Lost C&C's While Programming
Submitted Mon, 09 Jan 2012 19:34:55 GMT
(This is a problem with the game that has also affected my account.)
What: I lost two of my "Show Page" contraptions by just a few simple misclicks in the programming grid.
How: TL;DR - I had C&C a in the main 9x9 grid, C&C b in the 5th column escape hatch, and when I clicked C&C a, then immediately clicked C&C b, C&C b is permanently deleted and C&C a is in its place in the escape hatch. (Clicking over C&C's in the 9x9 grid does not produce this problem, only the 5th column does.)
What happened to me:
I had a program arrange with a "Player Has Memento" Contrivance in the first row, a "Show Page" Contraption on the second row, and another "Show Page" Contraption in the first spot of the Escape Hatch (5th column). At some point, I decided to swap the "Show Page" Contraptions to match the behavior I desired. I clicked the one on the second row, which put it 'in my hand' (so to speak), in my inventory, and to the side where I was supposed to set the parameters. I _then_ clicked the contraption in the 5th column, with the intention of swapping them. Instead, the contraption 'in my hand' replaced the contraption on the grid, and contraption on the grid disappeared. It did not show up in my inventory, it did not show up in the building inventory, it's just gone. :(
Then, I picked up the Contrivance from the first row so it was 'in my hand', and clicked the Contraption now occupying the first spot in the 5th column. That contraption disappeared, too, replaced by the contrivance on the grid. Both contraptions are nowhere to be found. I picked up the contrivance again, emptying the grid. I had two contraptions left in my building inventory, so I took them out, set their parameters, and placed them in the grid where I wanted them, along with a new contrivance ("Player Does Not Have Memento"), and now the program does what I want it to. Later, I also added the Give Memento Contraption.
Where: When programming a memento dispenser and page-displayer at the Titan IV Rocket (20,26) (place id 566), in the programming menu, program 1196 in room 1084 ("Underground Casino") and page 1972 ("Yes")
When: My problem occurred sometime around Saturday night (GMT-5), Jan 7th, through Sunday morning, Jan. 8th, but this is a problem with the new "Escape Hatch", so really, since the programs were upgraded.
FYI: I recreated this error with a new program in an inaccessible room:
Place ID 566
Room ID 1133
Program ID 1199
Lost Contrivances: Joker (Human and Robot are still there)
