Doesn't sound good. Did you just install a new version of the browser or a new plugin? Do you get this error on other sites or just here?

If you have the ability try using a different browser to access the site. If not, try disabling features/plug-ins in your browser and see if that makes the overflow error going away.

Discussed here and here. Bad Javascript in the advertisements is blowing up IE.

Anyone every try andy IE ad blocking software? Recommendations?

Is Opera really good? I have no experience.

As an aside - the health bars actually work in FireFox; something happens when the Google Ads load that goofs them up. I had a slow connection today and everything was rendering file until the advertisements finished loading.

This is not a proper bug but an annoying thing i hate atm, there are too many predacon missions, i go to put my bots in a mission and its only bot v preds ones and u know there won't be any preds in there. Need to make it so only predacons create there missions and bots / cons only create missions against each other, probably applys to maximals v cons too.

We have the same problem vs. the Maximals.
I generally have 3 or 4 max missions available at any 1 time and the occasional bot mission that fills in seconds...

I don't actually know if there is a way to fix it yet, but its a known bug.

Whilst that would be the sensible option, when has this game ever followed common sense?

It doesn't work in FF either, you just get a crossed-out convoy alt.

Its obviously so stealthy that even the alt database cant track it...

Another peeve for those beast players among us.. the Max's and Preds do not have an option on the high score page to show only pred or maximals. Also they do not get summarized on the summary page. I was just wondering how they match up to the original factions number-wise...

Also, a link on that page for the player rankings page should not be that hard to throw on there.

While I'm posting my wishful thinking, how about adding to the post of known issues a post on what issues are being worked on and which are on the back burner, so we know kinda how things are going?

Thanks OS and everyone else working on making this game the best it can be! :)

Hoist, whilst it doesn't have the option to filter the max/pred's, you can see an individual faction by clicking on their emblem.

Not a bad idea... Ill add that and the factions totals link above into the known bug list for now.

More complicated to make than it sounds, but ill see if I can get something together. It's more likely to be once the mod panels are back together though...

Thanks for the info guys, didn't realize the preds were the most short handed as they are. I also found I could click on one of the max or pred faction symbols on the high score page to get the list of just that faction's bots. Then I saved the page as a bookmark for later use.

Indeed. I have Firefox and that alt doesn't show up for me either. I'm still hanging on to it though, awaiting the day it appears in all its glory.

I think someone's working on the time out code. It was a faction in the match who won, but it was the one who was getting kicked around worse. INJUSTICE! Autobot heads will roll for this indignity.

This wasn't in the known bugs list, but when I went into the Arena (yeah, yeah, I looked for outnumbered missions first), there were both Decepticons and Predacons waiting. Whatever faction signed up for the arena last should have automatically gone in fighting the waiting members of the other faction. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there should be members of only one faction waiting at any one time.

They should have been. All my guys were at level 0, so I wouldn't see anybody else in the queue.

Edit: #-o Crap. I just double-checked. I did have 1 level 1 in there. You can crown me King Noob now. Sorry. :oops:
