Same problems here. Spinning hat and back to a single bar. Some actions simply get stuck.
For the time being I am playing on the old site. Perhaps postpone the elections for a week? The frustration will be too much.

I've made a user style which make the lists of storylets and branches more compact. It can be applied with the Stylish browser extension.

Another small frustration: when I go to sell things, it used to be that the cursor appeared directly into the small square and I could type quantity. Now I have to click first. Tiny but noticeable, especially on mobile.

What annoys me more than anything is timeline unreliability. In the previous design, while actions sometimes (much rarer than now) happen to fail, at least I was sure the action was performed when it was. Now I can get a result from storylet/card branch, click 'try again/onwards', and find that no action had been played at all. I could switch outfit in my possessions, move to story tab, and... you know, no change of outfit for me. The time is broken now, and this is disturbing and frustrating experience, as there is many cases of luck challenges and/or 'do not move back or you'll lose this card' cases.

Also, auto-refresh each 10 minutes (per new card/action) could rob you of valuable text per same reasons.

Oh. This was beyond cruel. I had 2 opporunity cards undrawn, got the Docks faction card (By the River's Side: the Docks), for which I have some use... clicked on it, and it just disappeared entirely, as if no card were drawn, and I once again got two cards left undrawn yet.

Obviously the next card was pointless.

UPDATE 8 JUNE 2018

Hello delicious friends - it has been an exciting and boisterous week here at Failbetter after having launched the Fallen London website redesign! We’ve received a lot of feedback and joyous squeals from you over the past few days, and we can’t thank you enough for it.

In fact, the amount of people logging on to try out the new site has far exceeded our expectations! As such, we need to do some server work and bug fixes to cater for all the traffic. There are a couple of issues specifically to do with usage and load times that are plaguing quite a few players.

Therefore, this weekend (9-10 June) we’ve decided to point the www.fallenlondon.com URL back to the old site - as we’re not around to handle support over the weekends and we want to make sure all players have the best playing experience possible. If you’re feeling daring and still want to play on the new site, it’ll be available via beta.fallenlondon.com. This switch will take place around 15:30 Friday 8th June.

Rest assured these issues are at the top of the list and we’re focused on making sure the new site can go live across all the URLs as soon as we’ve squished bugs and straightened kinks. We’ll keep updating these threads as things change.

Also check out the Known Issue thread, which also lists how to report bugs.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

I believe second chances work differently on the new site. I tried using a second chance with the 'All fear the Overgoat!' card's 'Use the Goat's... unique talents' option. I failed the initial attempt (which took 8 actions) and then the card asked for 8 more actions to use my second chance.

On the old site, I'm pretty sure that a second chance only costs you actions once (so, in my case, I would spend 8 actions on the first attempt and get the second attempt for zero actions).

Is that an intentional change? Or was it always supposed to work like this?

That sounds a lot like using second chances on expeditions, where the second chance takes a second chunk of supplies.

Redesign 2.0 failed in a challenge! (When you try a challenge that's difficult for you, you learn more even when you fail)


Spend 1 x Sudden Insight, 1 x Hastily Scrawled Warning Note, 1 x Hard-Earned Lesson and 1 x Confident Smile to ensure a second chance...


(all is good - take your time :-) )

I know I repeat myself from the feedback.... at least.... I am grateful for the old site and a brief return to the old layout. At least, it gives me a chance to attempt to say goodbye to the layout. Even if I consider it better looking, easier to navigate, perfectly fine working and less headache inducing than the new version, I begin to understand why it had to be done. At least for the newer mobile devices. I may even grow used to it, given the appropriate time. I would still like, were the old version up in some capacity, or if you released it like an add-on for the community to work on... like some of the older add-ons you incorporated, like the one allowing it to set outfits but... time to move on with the times, I guess, even if I personally dislike it. Plus, it may be nostalgia talking. After all, I have been using this layout for... three years or so.

I apologize for any and all anachronisms. I am too lazy to check some facts if I am sure they are from the 1890s or sometimes think they are.

The new site was working really well for me today, until I tried to discard a card and it discarded the mood next to it instead T_T

I have a different problem. I can't log on to *either* the new site or the old one. When I try, I get bounced back to the login screen. What gives?

Still can't log into the old site--the game hangs on a white screen. I have succeeded in logging into the beta, but when I try to do an Opportunity card (it happens to be the "Parliament of Bats" card) the game bounces me back to the beginning without resolving my card storylet.

2d EDIT: I can log in to the old site and it's working again.

I've still never seen the new site and I am very glad of that, since it sounds like a total clusterfuck.

I really wish the new site had slightly bigger text for the regular paragraphs, it's pretty hard to read. And using the browser zoom doesn't help much since it makes the titles etc look positively giant.

Login to the beta version seems to be broken for me. It accepts login/password, but drops me to the login screen with empty fields. as if I never logged at all.

Same for two devices and handful of browsers.

Yeah, really wish the the main body text in the new website was bigger, especially compared to the big title text and gigantic banner, this new font is really tiny on desktop. I have, ah, less than spectacular vision and the last thing I want is even thicker glasses.

Im not sure if it is the right place to ask, but.
I really like the new design, and i'd like to download all the headers and the map. the latter is done, but is there the map without icons of locations? looked through the HTML-code, nothing is there. Help?

Check the resources your browser loads, the map is one of them IIRC with the locations all being their own separate icons.

Here's a rather large version, which is conveniently wallpaper-ish sized.
