Description: I logged into my character, Ra'Gru, a member of the Zerg Hunters Unlimited, with plans on hunting zergs, as I had restocked the day before. Moving one block, I spotted a zerg. With my copious amounts of AP and ammo, I considered this an easy kill. I began firing, using shotgun shells, and quickly reached ten misses. Greatly annoyed, I continued firing, using all my shells in the process. I continued onwards with my pistols, subsequently reaching seventeen, twenty two, twenty eight, thirty four, and then forty eight misses. I then APed out on number forty nine, with a miss. Concerned, my fellow ZHU member shot and then attempted to heal me to see if I had tripped a zerg flag. Naturally, this proved a simple task.

Discussion
I had 16 misses in a row with shotties/pistols not an hour earlier and I thought I had just had the worst luck in the history of UD. I wasn't doing anything so honorably as zerg hunting, but I WAS shooting at another human, and I could have kept on missing if I didn't run out of AP. I was pissed though. I find it hard to believe that we were both just really unlucky at the same time.--Suburban Ed 01:29, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Happens to zombies all the time, at least high high miss streaks do. If you are missing wait a while between attacks, it seems that the game balances for everyone or in cycles or some such thing but streaks happen a lot and if you are in the middle of one it probably won't go away until later in the day.--Karekmaps?! 12:35, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Even as severe as this is, since you hadn't tripped the zerg flag, it's just shitty luck. I've experienced crap like this as well. Even with damn good hit-rates, misses do happen a lot a number of times.--Kolechovski 16:09, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

I have been having a similar problem for the past 2 weeks or so. It seems I've "tripped the zerg flag", as it were, though I am very careful to never let my alts interact, even going so far as to never having them in the same suburb (at least not intentionally... this may have happened once or twice). Anyhow, all three of my characters go through their entire stock of AP daily without more than one or two hits (their profiles: http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=1017827, http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=1014948, and http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=1016311, in Gibsonton, Pitneybank, and Pegton, respectively). It's getting really frustrating... I can't do anything to any survivors because I miss with almost every attack! This is more than a string of bad luck, as I've gone through about 500 AP or so with only a few hits, which shouldn't happen with a 50% hit rate. Moving to "Bugs reported more than once" in the case that this is indeed a bug.--DeadGerry 8:26, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

let's see... Pegton and Pitneybank... kind of very close as i see. And also an arena of a very big fight at the moment, involving hundreds of other players, amongst whoom the possibility to find someone who shares IP with you (same ISP) is big... --~~~~ [talk] 20:42, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Sure, Pegton and Pitneybank are close, but they're different suburbs... at worst, my alts were in the same suburb for a few moves when one was moving with his group. As for ISP, mine has a range of dynamic IPs, but I've had the same one for a number of weeks at worst... how much variation need there be between IPs before it's seen as zerging? Just how sensitive are the anti-zerging measures??? This has frustrated me to the point where the game is not much fun anymore!--DeadGerry 21:15, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Actually, the zerg thing kicks in if they get within 10 blocks of each other. This is why it's recommended to keep a suburb buffer between your alts at all times, to avoid stuff like this. Move them apart more, and your rates should improve.--Kolechovski 16:57, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
So it's over a month later, and I've gone so far as to stop playing my alts (http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=1017827 is my only active player beside the one in Monroeville), and I'm still missing with all but an attack or two out of 50 every time I log on. If the zerging countermeasures are still tripped for me, they're too sensitive... I've never come close to doing anything underhanded. There's a possibility that this is a bug in my hit percentage or something along those lines, isn't it?--DeadGerry 21:39, 09 March 2008 (UTC)
Doubtful that there is a bug just for you. Have you tried moving to a different 'burb? Perhaps some obscurity in the zerging countermeasures. --PdeqTalk* 06:21, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
This particular character has been moving from 'burb to 'burb with his group, so yes, I have tried that. I'm sure it's possible that the anti-zerging code could malfunction for one or a small number of players. I wish you were right, but I haven't been able to do any damage in a month and a half, maybe longer...--DeadGerry 12:25, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
I have had the problem that my first hit on an enemy strikes, gives me tangling grasp (I'm a zombie.) and then the next 49 hits don't connect. I've had this problem for several weeks. I don't have multiple accounts, so I don't see why the countermeasures could kick in for me. I have all of the AP-saving skills, all of the percent-increasers, and just about all of that stuff. --Ceilius 00:34, 1 June 2008 (BST)
Update: So, I logged on for the first time in almost a year, as my group had become active again. First time I attack a human, 2 hits out of 40 attacks. I haven't logged on in a year, and I'm still zerging somehow? This SUCKS. I wish someone would read these things and do something about this.--DeadGerry 12:01, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, well it's certainly not a wiki user that you're running into if that's the case. Maybe you were just unlucky? --Karekmaps?! 07:59, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

I've had a similar problem with my Monroeville alt Baal Friend over the last 4 days. Today 45 out of 48 claws (50% chance) were misses, previous 3 days weren't much better, only getting 5 or 6 hits (prior to that, everything was fine). My only other character is in Malton and is not having any problems. At time of writing, I've held my IP address for at least 3d19h. Bale Frend 13:37, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Issue lasted a further 4 days (total of 8) before I tried reseting my IP. It worked wonders, back to regular hit rate. I was part of a small horde and as stated above my only other character is in Malton, so I can't see it as anything other than a faulty zerg flag. Bale Frend 06:07, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
And it's back. It was nice to be able to hit for a couple of days. Bale Frend 23:06, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

I think it is pretty obvious the Random Number Generator is not really random and there are some serious flaws in the algorithm. Both survivors and Zombies see this repeatedly, but Zombies are really impaired by it because of the game mechanics. While trying to take down a barricade one can easily blow 30 AP to take down one level (without anyone active inside rebarricading). It can also be seen while attacking a common target in a horde. If the group is attacking a single player most will miss repeatedly. It seems this is further compounded by having Tangling Grasp (ie. someone hits before you, you lose your grasp, which almost assures you miss your next attack). I'm confused why a better algorithm is not implemented, such as Mersenne Twister. There are much better algorithms than the standard C/C++ rand(), which is known to provide less random low-bits. Mersenne Twister is fast, a good pseudo-random generator and freely available over the internet.Crying McNuggetts 13:07, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Well, what's the current algorithm used, and what's its flaws? Yeah, I know it's rather stiff and doesn't seem all that fluid/random, but what's the worst part of it? And yeah, there will be on/off days, but these guys shouldn't be seeing so many off hits across so many days. Guys, who's your IP provider and are you on a constant connection or dial-up? If others have used your IP (especially on frequent networks), that could be constantly triggering teh anti-0zerg thingy.--Kolechovski 15:54, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
I've been having this problem too, and since I own no alts, it can't be that. The only thing I can think of is that my girlfriend (who's computer is on the same network as me) is in the same Survivor group as me, and so we're usually in the same area, but this problem only seems to be affecting me, not her. MILLANDSON 03:37, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
If you're playing on the same network as her, you're using the same IP address, so if you gusy are operatign closely, it will trigger those anti-zerg countermeasures. Maybe she's unaffected by it if she always does her runs first (the system may not have yet detected a zerg problem until you login). You'll need a different network to play on if you both are playing and are constantly close to each other.--Kolechovski 18:56, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I've been seeing the same thing with some of my characters- I have a scout down in the southwest corner, a doctor in the middle, and a zombie in the far northeast, and some days my scout will just not hit anything, despite having all the gun skills. My zombie has been even worse, over the last week I don't think he's hit more than 15 times in the 300 AP he has used over the last week or so.--Doctor E 18:56, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Do you mean in those corners of Malton, or corners of the same suburb? In the same suburb, that's definitely the anti-zerg filter kicking in, because everyone's too close. But if they're spread across Malton, it's simply bad luck. I know from experience just how amazingly bad the rates of success can be, even though they should be better according to the odds.--Kolechovski 19:39, 2 September 2008 (BST)
I've had similar problems with my alt, but my main seems to have incredibly high hit rates. It seems like my alt only has two to ten successful actions per day and that's everything, not just attacks. My main however seems to hit almost at an unfair level, I tend to hit at least 40-45 every day. I don't see how this can be so unbalanced.--Rohndogg1 14:08, 11 October 2008 (BST)

On a similar note, is something wrong with crowbars? Supposedly, crowbars suffer no accuracy penalty for attacking barricades. So a survivor with Basic HTH skill and a crowbar should have the same % chance of lowering barricades as a survivor with Basic HTH, Axe Specialty, and a fire axe. However, over the last several days, this does not seem to be true. 40 AP with a crowbar at (supposedly) 20% yielded no hits, just "You try to lever away a section of the barricade, but slip and fail." At the same time, 40 AP with a fire axe at 40/2 = 20% has been enough to lower barricades at least 3-4 levels each time. In theory, either method should lower the barricades by 6-8 levels or so, but I have yet to successfully "hit" with a crowbar. ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 01:46, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


Just adding my two cents, even though I know the formatting is wrong. This "streak" that it puts zombies on is absolutely atrocious. It's impossible. I have a 40% chance to hit. I missed with my first shot, hit with the second, and then missed twenty-seven consecutive times thereafter. This is not the first time it's happened either. Every time I get turned into a zombie I will hit in the first or second shot, and then miss thereafter. Sometimes for over 30 consecutive attacks.

This is a serious bug. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ewan Devlin (talkcontribs) 03:56, 10 March 2009.

For the record, that is quite old bug, and it told to be related to "button spam", but i found no "button spam" in bugs wiki pages. Saw it here discussed. I use two characters and i have my co-worker addicted too, he is 3rd char from the same IP (so one of us would probably bump hit limit at his APs ending each day :-) ). Don't know of him, i use two browsers, each one with separate character logged in. Today i run it, found myself in Shore Hills dead after weakend, heard nearby growning and went for a hunt. So you can see it here and here With my 50% chance to hit it should be 1 to 16 thousands chance to happen ! Then i, in some kind of despair, switch to another browser with my another char in Wykewoods and go for nice hunt there. Going back, i can see that my 1st character is free from the curse and is really hitting with 50% chance. But ten and half APs are vanished and that might alter the result of fight for the NTBuilding! Either those humans now have some anti-hit perk, or zombies wield some hitting penalty ? That should not be anti-zerg reaction, since it would affect both chars and actually using 1nd on unlocked 1st one. Very weird and very annoying!

I'm not sure when I got the said pistol or where, but anytime I try to shoot anything with it, I merely get a "Your pistol is out of ammo" flavor text. Anyone wanna shed somelight on this? I have a feeling that if I try to reload it it'll turn into a 61 shot pistol...

Are you sure you're selecting that 1 ammo pistol to attack with? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 21:19, 13 September 2007 (BST)

Looks to me like its a 0 ammo pistol with a leftover radio freq tagged on the end- as you say, related to the other "super ammo" guns (which don't actually shoot more times than normal guns, afaik). I think dropping / reloading all your pistols should fix it. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 22:49, 13 September 2007 (BST)

Well, I guess it's kinda fixed. I reloaded all my pistols yesterday, and it became a 61 shot pistol... Now after slaughtering some zeds at the CCPD, it's strangely become a "00" shot pistol. I'll need some more pistol clips till I can figure out if it'll become a 60 shot pistol or it becomes a 6 shot one.--Edward Grengle 21:04, 15 September 2007 (BST)

Yeah if you search tangling grasp on this page you'll see other reports of this. It is seriously fucking annoying. Maybe if we spam this page enough Kevan'll fix it...--xoxo 01:48, 27 September 2008 (BST)

This pisses me off SO MUCH! I can't hit anything and as a zombie who invested the time to get all the combat skills this annoys me greatly. It doesn't even show the flavor line for tangling grasp! ARGH!--Doctorgun 07:45, 20 October 2008 (BST

A half assed fix is to attack a different person each time, it worked for me. Eg you go attack John: miss, hit, attack Mary: hit, attack Dave: miss, miss, miss, hit, attack next person, etc. it means you still don't get tangling grasp benefits but you do get 50% hit rate which i wasn't getting before.--xoxo 07:51, 20 October 2008 (BST)

nobody can fix that for few months? that bad. guys, dont think about new gadgets into game, just fuckin fix that shit. that sucks, when you try to destroy the cades and you cant kill humans after that. happy bloody new year

Please fix this bug. The workaround does work, but you cannot hit a human if he is the only target i.e. no other zombies or barricades in place. --Irritaded Zombie 30 jan 2009

I am suffering this bug with my zombie character. After I successfully land a hands attack with Tangling Grasp on a survivor, no further attack of mine lands on that survivor, I miss each and every time, until I run out of AP. No flavor text about the grasp/loss of grasp either. For the last 4 days I've been unable to hit any character more than once per day. Only thing I can do now is attack barricades... Please, PLEASE fix it -- Narhrarh 03 Mar 2009

I don't know if this helps, but recently, I have been getting really odd things related to the RNG. On a human with no firearms training, I managed to hit 4 times in a row with a flare (2.5%) and later on, on a different character, I got to miss 50 times with a knife at 50% Hit Rate. something must be going on.... -- Janjakko 06 April 2009

Discussion
I actually suspect the bug is that they have HP>50, since last I checked the HP boost of Flesh Rot wasn't supposed to affect survivors. Well, admittedly I based that on the fact that when my zombie with FR and no BB was revived, he stood with only 25 HP… but whichever, one of these three inconsistencies is definitely a bug. :D ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 13:29, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

So not a bug. Bites as harmans hit with 10% (I think) accuracy and for 1HP of damage and you cannot infect people with them. Most players I know use bites as signs of affection in the game.

Darkened building diagnosis glitch outside the building

Severity: unassigned
Description: My profile is Gyles Zednik. While testing this bug, I started as a zombie with the diagnosis skill, and then purchased scent blood to further test it.

I have also observed this problem with a human with diagnosis and scent blood, and I reported that. The problem is with the July 3rd 2009 update to diagnosis and darkened buildings. As I understand it, this update should only affect the diagnosis skill while standing inside a darkened building, because it is too dark inside to make a diagnosis. However, I have observed numerous times that survivors standing outside a darkened building do not display their HP if you have the diagnosis skill.

Here is a screenshot of my zombie character (who has diagnosis) looking at a survivor standing in the street outside of a darkened building. Notice there is no HP listed.

Here is a screenshot of my zombie doing damage to the survivor, still with no HP displayed (though scent fear is working). And finally, I purchased the scent blood skill, to see if that would be affected by the bug.

Here is a screenshot of the survivor's HP displaying properly with scent blood.

Any chance of a screenshot? --ϑϑ 04:00, 28 July 2009 (BST)

No as far as I can tell there is no way to screen shot it. I click and 4 AP disappears and it fails to barricade. Also to make things worse it is happening on movement as well. One can assume this will happen on anything I do. WTF! My account by the way is id=1363977 but it happens on them all intermittently. TreeBob Talk | ENVY 23:20, 27 July 2009 (EST)

I had reported this problem with TreeBob yesterday... happened to me 3 times. What I noticed the last time is that before clicking on the extension button "refresh", I had 3 ap... once clicked I had 8 ap. I am using firefox as well. I started cading and I was out like a light sleeping on the 3rd ap.... thinking it could be that extension problem... or related. I have 4 alts in game... so...

I have taken the extention out and while cading I was losing 4 ap at a time ?? and I hadn't refresh prior... I logged in, faked myself and caded... ?? Murderess 18:26, 28 July 2009 (EST)

Evidence: http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/4644/apglitchloosefail.png Notice how I fail on loose. I get the feeling it has something to do with the new Firefox 3.5.1 update that came out recently. Just guessing as it is not happening in IE. TreeBob Talk | ENVY 22:00, 28 July 2009 (EST)

ok still not happening in IE but I used Firefox again and it happened of course. One thing I noticed that was strange and never saw before. Look at the URL of this print screen. What's with the barricade89 at the end of it? It used 4 AP and failed of course. http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/5568/glitchbarricade89.png By the way I turned off the Firefox add-ons so it is not that. TreeBob Talk | ENVY 20:49, 29 July 2009 (EST)

The first screenshot still has extensions, so that doesn't help as it might still be those. Concerning the other stuff:

  • You can fail even on loose cading. It's like less than 1% but it happens.
  • The "barricade89" is the action you took. Most actions show up in the URL, always have done. Barricading also has a number added to the end which is generated randomly. This was put in ages ago to prevent abuse by bots. It won't cade without the right number, and the number changes each time you load the page.
  • If you turned off add-ons for the second screenshot, and you think it might be FF 3.5.1 that's the problem, see if the error still occurs for you on straight 3.5. If it does, it's probably something on your end, if not, then I expect more reports will confirm the 4AP issue as people upgrade from 3.5 to 3.5.1 . -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 02:02, 30 July 2009 (BST)

Right, so i've been experimenting a lot. I uninstalled it a couple times. Second time I removed all preferences, so a full delete. Downloaded a new version and same problem. Next I ran it in safemode. I tried UD and it worked like a charm! Also, I was having gmail problems. It was having slow load times and generally impossible to delete the spam folder. Incidentally when I switched to the older version of gmail I had no problem. Either way after going to safemode this problem was fixed as well. Since this is a clean - no extension reinstall I really don't know what that would mean. I know it confirms firefox as the culprit. Someone other than myself and Murderess must be having issues. WHo knows if anyone actually reports them here. -- TreeBob Talk | ENVY 22:00, 29 July 2009 (EST)

I'm running Firefox 3.0.12 (I don't bother updating often) and I have no UD-modifying add-ons and I can fail barricading without losing 4ap. Mine doesn't have this problem. --ϑϑ 07:30, 30 July 2009 (BST)
I never had any problems running the old version either, this is a new problem and I assume it is being caused by the newest update. TreeBob Talk | ENVY 09:30, 30 July 2009 (EST)

I finally got the chance to test this recently. On FF 3.5.2 with Greasemonkey and using some of Midianian's scripts enabled I was able to cade successfully and unsuccessfully for 1AP at a time. So I'm not sure what's up on your end, but you could try swapping out your scripts from some of his, they do the same stuff and don't cause any problems. (well the ones I use don't, anyway) -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 17:12, 6 August 2009 (BST)

As I said above I did a full uninstall and reinstalled with no add-ons. Since it still happened that means is something to do with FF itself not greasmonkey. Two more people just posted the same issue and both are using the newest FF version. It is random in occurrence but when it begins happening it doesn't really stop. Running in safe mode fixed the problem but that doesn't really narrow it down for me at all. With the new people making claims that brings it to 5 in total just posting here. I imagine most people don't post problems here. TreeBob Talk | ENVY 11:06, 26 August 2009 (EST)

I have had similar problems with frequent failure to cade (even at LiB and LoB) and the loss of 2 AP for each failure. This occurs on my new laptop only on which I run FireFox 3.5.2 and is not an issue on my old laptop that runs FireFox 2.0.0.20. --Anne tardew 03:11, 27 August 2009 (BST)

Yeah I'm having these problems a lot recently, and I do have the most recent version of Firefox myself. The greasemonkey thing, though, could you explain how it is that solution works? I'm curious as to what to do. --Aguyuno 03:53, 27 August 2009 (BST)

I can't begin to wonder what's going on. I just retested (still 3.5.2, a few times with add-ons and scripts active then a few without) and got the usual 1AP for both success and failure in all cases. But if this a random and fleeting occurrence that just makes it all the harder to pin down. Beyond asking you chaps to keep an eye out for anything that might be triggering it, I can't suggest much else since all else seems equal. So if you find it happen again, think back about recent actions you took and anything that might have triggered it. Maybe accidental double-clicks are just easier now? I'm stumped here, sorry. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 04:45, 27 August 2009 (BST)

Description: [My character, Roy Orbson] rose up from being revived and I had an infection. Me and my friend were communicating over MSN to repair and power a building together. After standing up, I used approximately 3 AP getting to the building, waited for my friend. He came over, installed a generator. I asked him to heal me as I was unsure if infection damage would stack up on a heavy repair (49 AP), then in-game re-fueled the generator. I received this message, approximately:

You refuel the generator.
Since your last turn:
Billy Joel healed you for 10 HP. (0 minutes ago)
You lost 1 HP to your infection

Usually it would say "XX healed you for 10 HP. They cure your infection." Also worth noting that my friend (whose character is not really Billy Joel) told me the game gave him the message that he cured my infection. My next action was to repair the building, which cost me 49 AP, while I still received the message "You lost 1 HP to your infection." I did find out however that infection doesn't stack on super repairs, which is good. I'm sorry I don't have any screenshots, I had some things to do and didn't think to report this, so I closed my browser.

Severity: Unknown, though does make life difficult when trying to find your pals
Description: There seem to be places in Malton that foil Scent Death locating other members of your horde. My fellow zambah, Hentemann and I, Ginormous have experimented with this, finding that there are particular locations (I apologise for not having screenies) such as the Blanning Building in Fryerbank and some of the wastelands in that area that seem to mask the scent of your contact. We moved off and on, trying it out with both of us trying to scent the other and it was location specific. I know that being indoors seems to mask it, and being in a pile of bodies seems to mask it, but we were both up and outside. I'd swear this has happened elsewhere as well. Anyone else experienced this?

Discussion
A further update: I now have screen shots of the effect in action. First up is the Marks NT where you can see here that I do not detect any members of my horde. However, upon moving next door to Kray Towers here you can see I can scent Hentemann just fine. Does this now qualify as a repeating bug? It's pretty difficult to keep track of your horde members if Scent Death is broken and you're not completely metagaming. --Ginormous 01:09, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Further Further Update: In case anyone is reading this, just ran a perimeter around Hentemann at the Marks Building. From one block away, I found no scent in the northwest, north, west, southwest, or two blocks directly west. However, northeast, east, southeast, south and two blocks straight east, I could scent him.

I am the other zombie involved, and it's the same for me. Screenies East Test Same Block Test West Test And it definitely happened before, someplace over to the west of the map IIRC --Hentemann 00:47, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

My character Anime's Non PKer Alt started this recent crate pillage at 284% (94/51 weight) encumberance. After smashing a crate and finding 1 flare gun, 5 pistol clips, and 5 shotgun shells, it placed him at 306% (105/51 weight) encumberance. Moving one sqauare away, he lost 1 flare gun, and 4 pistol clips bringing his encumberance down to 296% (100/51 weight).

Screenshot evidence vis iWitness:

Consdering the old item encumberance that we used to have is 100/51 at the end of everything, might be the answer to the question. But I thought I would report it anyway.

Aha, so 100 appears to be the new maximum inventory string length. Thanks for posting this, I was way too lazy to count the items in the iWitness Sponge gave me earlier. (That bastard got to 400%.) Guess I should start reloading some of these shotguns then. ;) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 00:40, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I have two alts, a survivor (AusIV) in Fryerbank, and a zombie (ESGZombIV) in Roftwood. I'm not aware of having ever used the same IP as another player, so I don't think this could be a zerging flag.

Discussion
I'm having this problem with my level 42 zombie as well; seems to have been this way ever since I hit level 42, so for about a month now. Basically, once I grab someone, I won't hit them again, at all, with any attack. It's not a function of the anti-zerging code because I don't have any other active characters, and I'm reasonably certain no one on the network does either. splntrd 10:06, 26 May 2006

I have the same problem as AusIV. I have a few alts, but they are nowhere near each other. Whenever I "grab hold" of someone, that means that I won't be hitting them again. Poopgiggle 20:28, 30 April 2008 (BST)

Seems to be fixed. Tangling grasp now improves accuracy, rather than hurting it. I don't know if others are experiencing this as well, or if perhaps my luck has changed. --AusIV 21:47, 5 May 2008 (BST)

Never mind, it seems this was only temporary. Once again, the first attack hits, successive attacks fail. I'm never informed that I've lost my grip, the attacks just miss repeatedly. Back to using bite. --AusIV 02:40, 9 May 2008 (BST)

Perhaps this is a result of zerging countermeasures. I've found that if my Zombie keeps it's distance from my girlfriend's character, it has much better results. This seems weird though, because I've never logged on from the same network as my girlfriend. When I'm not having the problem, I get messages along the lines of "player writhes in your grasp. Your attack does no damage." or "your attack does no damage. You lose your grip." When I am having the problem, I'm just told that my attack misses.--AusIV 19:06, 12 May 2008 (BST)

Now I'm half way across the map from any of my alts, or my girlfriend's alts. It's possible that I've been linked with someone I'm unaware of while using a public network, but this means I have knowing what areas I have to avoid in order to be able to attack. It makes my character unusable, and if it doesn't start working soon, I may dump the character and start over, being more careful about logging in from public networks. --AusIV 15:15, 24 May 2008 (BST)

Reposting to bring this back to the devs' attention, and to give an update. This problem periodically gets fixed for a day or two and then breaks again; it's currently broken and has been for a week or so. --Poopgiggle 23:48, 15 June 2008 (BST)

I'm getting this problem as well. One hit, then nothing but misses. All my zombies have become unplayable as a result.--Lejes 23:33, 4 July 2008 (BST)

Idling does not clear messages, it just stops saving messages after the idling begins. Also, I have been encountering this on a number of occasions, and it's really annoying. I doubt my alts have been getting attacked on each of the times they wound up dead, so this is a big problem.

More than likely, someone didn't want to cut his words in the middle. Like the first broadcast, for example.

So...

Discussion
It looks like you got killed and then issued a command to attack (or it didn't get processed till after you were killed) and so you couldn't make the attack (invalid action) but also could not see the reports of being attacked (you;d taken an action). Pretty standard "0 time conflict" stuff. You were in a mall- were you maybe mashing buttons really fast to attack? As for the stand up, you were at 13, gained an AP from the server tic, spent 10 to stand up, leaving you with 4. Nothing wrong there. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 06:31, 1 April 2008 (BST)


Yeah, except for the fact I died in one move with 50 HP. I don't think there's anything that can do that. User:Jordan Salafack » JS talk contribs » 13:57, 1 April 2008 (BST)
Sure there is. One move for you might be 10 moves for somebody else (there's ways to fire off multiple moves VERY quickly). Also, with multiple active shotgun users in the mall, you can die FAST. Its also maybe possible you were hit with a syringe and didn't get revived due to the same zero time conflict that caused you not to get the report. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 18:39, 1 April 2008 (BST)
Well, the syringe would only work here if the same conflict that caused the problem made the syringe not work, as I was still dead when I rose. And it was only about ten seconds from click to click for me, so if it was an attack the dude would have to be super fast on the keyboard and very lucky. I'm thinking the most plausible out of your explanations is the syringe thing, followed by plain old sudden death, followed by attacking. In that order. Respectively. Yes.

I got annoyed, clicked it again, held it down for second or so, then hit stop on my browser, and hit the DNA extractor again. The previous zombie appeared to have been revived, because there was another strange smelling body in the space. The page that came up was very stretched, and was a DNA scan of a second zombie in the stack, with a "Revivify this specimen" under it, and I still had the syringe in my inventory. I was surprised, so I repeated the process to see if it was just a random glitch, but it worked again. I still had the syringe, though I was running out of AP like normal.

This gives me the strange feeling like I've seen it before elsewhere in other games. Is it possible that destroying the syringe is last in the script instead of being done at the sameish time as the revive, like they are set as seperate actions?

Those last two images are caused by the browser loading the page but not the CSS. I get that in Firefox when someone on the LAN is using bandwidth-intensive applications (P2P, for instance).

Cctoide 16:00, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, although I occasionally get any of these (often a refresh will fix it), a good number of these seem to occur during sieges in-game, and I notice a good bit of server lag. If that's the cause, which is a good chance, I guess not much can be done. The really annoying thing is when you refresh the page, it often tries to repeat the action, wasting AP and IP hits, but I doubt anything can be done about that either.--Kolechovski 19:45, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

And while I had an alt shoving pipes in the doors at a PD where MOBsters were knocking, one of the times, after I tried to block the doors with a pipe, someone else beat me to starting cades, but one of my pipes still disappeared a short bit after.

These cade oddities happened with several different alts, and they were often seen while battling it out. Ideas on what’s happening? Oh, and speaking of oddities, is it just me, or does the server really seem to take forever to load sometimes? Is it due to the huge traffic during siege battles?

Not actually true, it's working how it should. Dead bodies are counted as survivors which means they don't have the status effect dead.--Karekmaps?! 21:36, 24 February 2008 (UTC) Actually, that's in the profile, where they only become "zombie" once they stand up. However, when PKed or mauled to death by a zed, you get the status effect "dead" after your name, before you even stand up, so when infected and dying, you should become "dead" as soon as the last HP vanishes.--Kolechovski 16:03, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

From time to time (once or twice a week) I will log in as the survivor and go to take my first action(or check my profile or contacts list) and when the screen refreshes I am suddenly my alt character(zombie). this does not happen in the opposite direction. I've tried logging in as John A MacDonald, but when i refresh the screen (via use of action point, checking contacts list, or profile I am still my alt character and can play normally.

If i use all of my alts action points, and log out then try to access my survivor, I will get the first screen saying where i am how many action points i have, and that i am the right character, but when i try to move when the screen refreshes I get a grey background instead of the city and teh message You cannot think anymore.

I can then log out of my zombie character, and log in to my survivor, I will be in the same place without having used any action points, but still unable to play why i try to move or after refreshing the screen for ay reason.

Description: Just some minor things to fix, not really a bug. Let's look at the screenies, shall we?

[4]

After fresh, unbroken snow surrounds you, there should be a space after that period. Also, the comma after the collapsed wall text doesn't seem needed.

[5]

After green Xmas lights decorate the room, there should be a space after that period.

[6]

In the thick snow text, there should be a comma after south. I notice a number of things in this game seem to lack commas in a list of 3 or more, and they should have them. Also, after fir tree, there shouldn't be a comma.

[7]

Same thing, also the encumbrance warning failed to display.

[8]

Another encumbrance warning failed to display.

After it is running, should there really be a comma there? I don't think there should be.

OK, I'll try to remember just to get the URLs. Anyhow, are you sure none of these are bugs? Well, they're not bugs in game-terms, but still, they're grammar issues, and there's no other place to report these. BTW, I have more to report, so here they come...

http://img521.imageshack.us/my.php?image=00vc3.png

There shouldn’t be a comma after “evacuated”.

http://img521.imageshack.us/my.php?image=01vn4.png

After “You study,” there should be a comma.

http://img142.imageshack.us/my.php?image=02uq8.png

There should be a comma after Fort Creedy, as that is a list of 3 items or more.

http://img142.imageshack.us/my.php?image=03ui6.png

After “revivication points”, there should be a comma. Also, in that picture, you can clearly see a couple types of locations that were forgotten for the snow change. Streets and parks have a visible change that shows that snow on them. Monuments and carparks are also open areas that would be under the snow and appear white, but as you can see from the map, they still appear gray. I’m sure this was just oversight, but since the snow should continue for a while, and it’s just a color fix, could you modify those to white like the others?

http://img521.imageshack.us/my.php?image=04wa6.png

Tuning portable radios still costs 2 AP, while tuning a radio transmitter only costs 1. I thought that there was something in peer reviewed (though I’m offline while typing this, so I can’t look) about changing that to 1 AP. Until that happens, could you do something about this? This is what happens when trying to retune the radio with 1 AP left. If you click the “Tune” button, you’re not allowed to finish tuning and have essentially wasted that last AP. At the least, the retuning should be allowed to finish, putting you at –1 AP, as most actions that require multiple AP to complete do so, rather than sticking you with nothing and wasting the AP you tried to spend.

http://img521.imageshack.us/my.php?image=05ux2.png

After “collapsed wall”, there shouldn’t be a comma.

http://img521.imageshack.us/my.php?image=06uj2.png

There shouldn’t be a comma after “ruined building”.

I guess that's all for now.--Kolechovski 23:29, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

"Organized" in the military reports is wrongfully spelled as "organised".--Kolechovski 01:05, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

More...in the FAQs…

Am I allowed to play multiple characters? You are, provided that they lead completely separate existences within the game - your characters should not collaborate, nor share (or stand outside) the same building. Multiple characters found to be working together in a suspicious fashion will be automatically flagged, penalised or even banned permanently by the system. If you're running a few characters, it's best to make sure that they stay in separate suburbs.

-Penalized is spelled wrong, and there should be a comma after it.

Is there any merchandise? There's an official Urban Dead Mall at Cafepress where you can buy T-shirts, mugs and badges, if you really want to. It's all base-price, we don't make any money from them.

-There should be a semicolon, instead of a comma, after base-price.

Can I modify my profile or password?

-You should note that the modification of password isn’t available anymore, due to being “down for maintenance”, even though I have no idea why maintenance would be taking so long.

Why am I being told that I have "accessed this server too many times today"? (This limit is now being waived for players who have donated to support the game; anyone donating more than $5 may nominate one character to have unresticted access, per $5.)

-You should say anyone donating $5 may nominate one character, as with the per $5, because those 2 sound contradictory as is. Also, “unrestricted” is spelled wrong.

-In addition to these, I recommend adding a header on Infection, as many new people don’t seem to know what to do about it when it happens. I also recommend adding under “How do I talk to other people” a paragraph about radios, including which frequencies can be broadcast from or listened to, including the frequency often used by newbies. Also, it seems a common question is about encumbrance, so I recommend adding a section addressing what it means and how it works, as newbie survivors often ask about that.

-Another grammar error is in the military broadcasts, when talking about organized groups of zeds…”organized” is spelled wrong.

In this screenshot, there shouldn’t be a comma after impassable.

http://img266.imageshack.us/my.php?image=00tc7.png

Also, in these next 3 pics, the right quotes should be placed at the end, not below the text. There may be other poems affected by this, but I haven’t found them yet, so maybe a quick glance through your poetry database can find and fix all that suffer this.

However it still tells me that none of my contacts are nearby, or rather none of my horde and most of those bodies are of my horde. It's confusing in the extreme and can give the impression that there are lots of unfamiliar zombies there, and since tracking your horde is one of the main uses to Scent Death I'm thinking this might not have been an intentional implementation.

Description: Bercause I am using a different stash of computers while upgrades are under way around here, I am on less-than-fully-functional machines. Unfortunately, these computers don't seem to be able to handle forums nicely, and they often fail to load, and I get zillions of Page Not Displayed errors or just a blank background. Since I have lost contact with group members due to this, I thought of reestablishing it through the help of Mobile Phones. A couple contacts from one of my alts have Mobile Phones (or at least they appeared to from the contact list). The problem is that alt doesn't have a Mobile Phone. But another one does. So, I tried to add the contacts to my other alt who has a Phone, so he could call up the contact and work something out. Unfortunately, for some reason, any of these Phone-holding contacts no longer appear to have a Mobile Phone from my alt's contact list, and I am unable to call any of them. And in the insanely unlikely event that all phone-holding contacts were online and dropped their phones while I was switching, I logged back in with my original alt. According to his contact list, the contacts still have Mobile Phones. And when I look at my alt's contact list, any contacts that were already on that had Mobile Phones still appear to, and I can contact them just fine, so it only seems to affect the new contacts added. I don't wish to give away account names unless absolutely required, but here's a screenshot of the problem. The person displayed as Sofia is supposed to have a Mobile Phone.

Description: Unfortunately, since I’m not a wiki guru, and the page I’m using is an offline page stored rather than a URL link, I may not be able to reproduce this completely. Basically, I’ll just use pictures to get my point across. Since some people apparently don’t have a problem with this, it’s moved from a suggestion to a bug report. Basically, the digitized text for tuning the radio frequency, as well as the text when typing a radio or mobile phone message, is illegible. It’s annoying to have to copy and paste everything into Notepad just to fix a spelling mistake, because you can’t see the letters as they appear and can’t fix it right in the message box. And if you’re retuning the radio, and you get a digit in the wrong place or whatever, you don’t find out until you’ve wasted an AP tuning to the wrong frequency. The digitized text RECEIVING phone messages is okay though, it’s just the stuff you put into the rectangular box that’s problematic. Although the digitized format is obviously a flavor thing, the size of the text and its bolded appearance make it impossible to read inside the boxes. This also makes it terrible picking a mobile phone contact. Here are some pictures of the problem. I’m stuck using Internet Exploiter, as are many who play on school/library/college computers, if that makes a difference. Many others have seen this as well, while some don’t seem to experience it.

Comment(02/11/08): I picked up this skill on my character a couple of weeks ago and now after the first hit that triggers tangling grasp, all my other hit chances get reduced significantly. It's like instead of adding 10% to my chance to hit, it is instead setting my chance to hit equal to 10%. I've been on everyday for the past two weeks with this character and used every single action point on this. Doesn't matter what time of day, if I wait between hits, if I change targets, if I move to another suburb, etc. Always hit/entangle and then miss from that point on. I've gone through hundreds of APs on this and I'm not earning any XP because of it. The character is basically unplayable now. 8( —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wren (talkcontribs) at 21:07, 11 February 2008 (UTC).

For me, Tangling Grasp often does not work. I will grab hold of a character, but then I will not crush down on their shoulders, nor do I loose the grasp. Every time I hit it will say that I grabbed onto their shirt/chain/whatever, as if it was the first time I was hitting. AnonBorgTech001 22:45, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Also posted as comment under 49 misses in a row: Ever since I bought tangling grasp, the first or second hit will succeed, informing me that I've caught some article of clothing. Every subsequent attack misses. I'm never informed that I've lost my grip. I'm currently letting my AP recharge. Once I get to 50, I'm going to see how many misses I get in a row. --AusIV 16:27, 30 April 2008 (BST)

Description: OK, here's something. I heard something on a Radio Transmitter. I responded to something on said Transmitter. There were replies on the Transmitter. Then, I retuned the Transmitter to the External Military channel. So far so good, right?

However, other people in the building are now very confused by what went on, as they've logged in afterwards, and they have seen none of the exchange, only military reports.

So, it looks like the server stores the fact that there was a broadcast, and then when a character logs in, fills in the broadcast with something from whatever channel the radio is tuned to, rather then what was actually said. Interestingly, my broadcasts can't be seen by others in the room either, as the Radio is currently on the Military frequency, and you can't broadcast on the Military channel...

I can provide the broadcasts I received and the broadcasts that another person actually saw on request, but I'd rather do that privately for privacy purposes.

Description: Ok, so i went onto my first character Moke2 who is in Quarlesbank and spent all my AP so i had 0. So then i logged out and logged in on my Alt Mokeman who is in East Boundwood and i clicked the button to move 1SE and it puts me onto Moke 2's screen logged in saying i have 0 AP! So I log out of Moke 2's and do every single action on Mokeman's, from attacking, to leaving to barricading to speaking and moving everywhere and on every occasion it puts me back onto Moke 2's. I clicked on the settings and skills and it was moke2's. I closed all the windows and programs but it still happened. It doesn't take any of my AP but it's rather annoying. Any help would be appreciated.

It's happened again today. --Acoustic Pie 22:12, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

The time keeps going down from 30. I have a feeling the I might die once it reaches zero.

Also, I haven't gained any AP in the past half hour.

Description: My poor scout seems to have lost his binoculars. Those things are useful, so I know I didn’t simply throw them away. And I’m sure my guy is a scout, who comes with them from the start. I noticed they were missing when I tried to use them from a tall building recently (I know it’s tall, because it even has the Jump From Window option, and I’m pretty sure I used them in this building before). Unfortunately, I don’t get to log in much, and it has been weeks since I last attempted to use them, so I don’t really know how long ago they disappeared, but I am quite sure they’re gone now. Could you please check what happened to them? Being a scout is hard enough…losing those binoculars really doesn’t help anything. Thanks.

So you lost your binoculars? Did you recently drop an item? You might have accidently selected the binoculars.--  AHLGTG 22:06, 16 October 2007 (BST) To report back on this, I noticed when I was about to drop an item the other day, that after I selected it from the drop down box, the box scrolled up for a second and selected a different item. This problem has happened frequently in another game as well, so I think this may be what happened with those Binoculars. It's in Microsucks Internet Exploiter, if that matters. I'm not sure if other browsers suffer this bug or not. Thanks for the help though.--Kolechovski 17:55, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

It should ask you if you want to resubmit POST data – mine does. This is a browser feature, not a bug. If you don't want to repeat your action, don't click Refresh – simply make sure your URL bar contains exactly http://www.urbandead.com/map.cgi, select it, and hit Enter. This will reload the page without repeating any actions. Not a bug. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 09:04, 9 October 2007 (BST)

Actually only if there is post data, like a target. ?rise or any of those other things aren't considered post or get data.--Karekmaps?! 12:48, 9 October 2007 (BST)
True, it'll only question the reload if a page has POST data. Since his example actions are performed via POST in the normal course of events, I ignored the query string. Updated for clarity. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 13:16, 9 October 2007 (BST)

You can remove it if you want to. Also on a question of reloading page for sure without any actions - add question mark with nothing after it ("map.cgi?"), it will be counted as GET method without paramemetres and. That's because POST parametres can be hidden and not show up in URL, so using Revenant's trick may not always work --~~~~ [talk] 18:30, 9 October 2007 (BST)

The past couple days, however, he's been unable to attack any zombies. That is, until a zombie I had in my contact list was in with a large group. I didn't want to attack this zombie, so I selected "attack a zombie" from the dropdown, and it turns out that I attacked my contact anyway. If I don't know any zombies in a group of them, I don't get the "attack a zombie" selection, and I can only see survivors in my dropdown (and this was in a crowd of 18 zombies and 20 or so survivors). Suggestions? It's hard to help fight them off if I can't actually fight them off. I should mention that I'm using Firefox, have no UD extensions installed, and don't have this problem with any other characters.

Discussion

  • Relatedly, or seemingly relatedly, with 2 zombies in a revive point, and one of them in my contact list, selected "a zombie" rather than my contact's name results in my contact being DNA scanned. This caused quite a huhwtf moment for me - I tried it a few times, since I initially thought I may've misclicked, but no such luck. -pinkgothic 21:59, 15 July 2008 (BST)

Not a big glitch, but something that's a little weird and shouldn't be that hard to fix(just change the wine flavor text when you run out of AP)

IPs identify you individually. No two people have the same IP at the same time. What you're suggesting is that Sergeant CinnamonBun lost his IP for the duration of the five moves, only to get it back, which would be a one in a million chance and definitely would only happen in combination with an ISP disconnection.
On a different note, depending on what moves were made, there are some that count as more IP hits, specifically, syringes cost as many server hits as IP hits. -pinkgothic 22:04, 15 July 2008 (BST)

Here's the HTML for the "Revivify this specimen" button:

   <input type="hidden" name="target" value="1553xxx"> (10AP)

Notice that the scanned zombie's ID is included as a parameter (though I've partly obscured it) so I would expect it to work the same as selecting the target from the drop-down box next to the syringe. --Catherine Athay 18:42, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

What I usually see is a grasp that doesn't stick, so that every time I hit, I'm grabbing hold again. I do seem to have 50% hit rate on that character when that's happening, and haven't seen the severe form of the bug where it destroys your hit rate.

What happened today: I noticed while attacking a survivor that my tangling grasp was working for a change. Yay! Then something odd happened. I lost my grip, and on the next AP attacking, I got the message saying the survivor writhed in my grip. I continued attacking and it was as if I hadn't lost my grip at all. My hit rate was good, and since I wasn't losing my grip even when I should, I was hitting more than I ought to have been able.

For the first character, two days in a row I have experienced a drop from 4 to 0 AP and then 23 to 0 AP while trying to barricade a building. On the second, two days in a row I've gone from 49AP to 16AP in one search action. I managed to snag two screencaps of the latter happening.
