Seemed to have been affecting the forums as well. Just cleared my stuff out and that fixed it.

Wait your a con? The correct solution is to throw water on your computer while its running. It is not only refreshing for the computer but also helps keep it cool

It is working. Thanks Anshin. Can we get something about it news'd so people who don't check the boards can see the fix?

Sorry guys, I chased it up minutes before I went to work and didn't have time to let you know Ryan's response.

If you're still having problems do a forced refresh (Ctrl (or Shift) & F5) and it should all be set to go.

The change affected the forum as well so if you're not seeing new posts, do the forced refresh and keep me up to date if it's still not working for you.

This is probably just me overreacting to something that should be obvious, but take a look at this mission:

http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar ... n_id=59706

Now, if the only Autobot never got in a hit, hence the 0 score, then what the spotted heck happened to Buzzstorm? Was the bird let out of the CR chamber 9% unhealed?

That would be the case yes. Not everyone uses auto-cr.

Oh, okay, but I thought the game wouldn't let anyone into a mission who wasn't at 100%.

I think it might be like that in the arena, but you can be any % and still head into a mission.
Tends to irritate your team-mates off tho, as you can't even be used as a shield with only 9%...

Hello all,

Found an interesting little glitch, I put nova storm into an arena battle and he came out with damage, so I assume he had a fight and won, but the mission log is of a completely different battle with two other participants. I've got no record of who nova storm fought or his exp/energon haul

http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar/view_arena.php?arena_id=4909

edit: the same thing is about to happen to shadow saber http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar/view_arena.php?arena_id=4910

This has been a known bug for several months. Unfortunately HMW does not have a developer and until Seibertron can get around to looking at it we just have to deal with the Arenas being a mystery outcome.

If you want you can try the Missions, you may end up making much more xp/energon there.

And those logs are at least for now correct.

Nope. No game dev to work on it. You still get XP and Energon from the arena, but you don't get to see your fight. Fortunately, Missions work fine, which is all that matters to a majority of the players.

For those of you that are having problems with items such as:

* Characters disappearing
* Characters showing as active after you come back from a mission
* Characters showing in the CR even though they are 100%

Refreshing the page works but this will keep happening to you (at least on Firefox/Chrome).

Quick fix is to Clear your cache and cookies (cookies have to deal with the last 2 issues, cache probably has old CSS causing the first one).
