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

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.

Yea I just had the same problem with one of my Arena Battles last night. These arn't my bots. http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar ... na_id=5423

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).

Problem solved. They reappeared when I reset the Zoom in Firefox... must've had it cranked up when the site re-design first hit.

Is HMW working on mobile now? Cause it wasn't when I looked before, neither was the boards. Just the news, toy sightings, and main page.

Mobile was just getting me 404 errors. Finally i got here by the report broken link link.
Honestly i'll most likely use the full site if a working mobile gets implemented.

I hope it gets sorted, because I could honestly give two fucks about anything on the site not HMW.

*edit* What's going on with NeoKaon anyway?

The machines have attacked and are replicating anyone on that board to Agent Smith clones. Its nasty, you may want to buy a firewall just to protect yourself.

On the bright side, I double checked on three devices today (Ipad, Android Evo 3d, Iphone). The site seems to be working in mobile mode, but again works with less issues if you set the phone to emulate desktop mode.

Not sure if this has been brought up before (too many pages!) but Arena, at least for me, seems to have a problem. When I click the arena-fight button, i see some level 2/3s in an arena battle instead of my guys

It's a known bug with the logs. You're getting your XP, the logs are just getting mixed up with some old logs that weren't properly deleted. On the plus side, the missions aren't all messed up with that bug, so you could always join those instead.

I don't know if this is happening to anyone else but in the edit section for your characters the custom color chart is cut off for me.

If I remember right the top row is supposed to have 11 or 12 dots, or whatever you call them, and the bottom 2 sections are supposed to have 6. Well the box that it's in cuts off the dots, my top row only goes to 9 and the bottom 2 barely go to 5 because the box it's in cuts down the middle of the dots.

Just wondering if this is happening with anyone else?
