Our devs have been hard at work tracking down and squishing bugs within the new Fallen London site. We've reached the point where we'd like to invite a few people back in via a closed-beta.

If you'd be interested in helping us by finding and reporting bugs, please email
fallenlondonredesign@failbettergames.com directly with your character name included so we can give you the required permissions.

After we feel confident in the closed-beta, we'll be opening it up to further load test the site, so stay tuned!

Hi all,

We've just updated the beta to version 8312. You should be able to get the updated version by just refreshing the page (although you may have to do so more than once). For reference: the current version is displayed in a couple of places. If you're on a desktop-sized screen, it's in the footer, while if you're on a smaller screen it's at the bottom of the slide-out menu.

Fixed in 8312:

  • Penstock's Land Agency is accessible from the Bazaar again.

  • Drawing 'problem' cards in places like the Finishing School no longer blanks the story tab.

  • The listed number of equippable items of a given type in 'Possessions' now changes when you unequip/equip one of them.

  • Possessions you can't use no longer have a pointer (hand) cursor.

  • You can no longer buy/sell items in negative quantities.

  • You can once again change mantel/scrapbook qualities while viewing your profile.



I'll do my best to keep this thread updated when we deploy substantial updates.

I just want to say that this beta does work really, really smooth and easy. No time shenanigans which plagued me at that first attempt, and no really notable bugs, so congratulations. It just works, period.

Version 8360 is now up on beta.fallenlondon.com. Please refresh your browsers to see the latest changes.

There are only a few noteworthy fixes to report:

  • Second chance icons should now display correctly

  • Echoes in the sidebar should no longer display "0.00" when starting up

  • Trying to accept a social action that one of you is ineligible for should behave as expected

  • The messages tab should auto-update every 2 minutes

  • Selling an equipped item should update the Possessions tab and your modified stats

Just some minor source code cleanup, I'm afraid; nothing to get excited about. :-)

Version 8420 is out. Get it while it's fresh!

A lot of minor tweaks, but only a couple of changes of note:

  • Character descriptions are back on profiles.

  • Images and fonts are now being served slightly differently (and, we hope, more efficiently).

  • We're experimenting with making the transitions in and out of storylets a little snappier. This one's a work in progress.


Thanks again for the feedback and bug reports.

My guess is that the new site won't be launched before the end of the Zee festival. How correct am I? smile

Version 8461 is up on beta.

Most of the latest changes relate to ongoing work on issues around synchronisation, but there are couple of minor things to note:

  • You should now be able to request a password reset.

  • There's an option in the slide-out side menu to go full-screen, should you want to. (On larger devices, the option is at the very top, beside your username.)

  • We've made some changes to the map's behaviour on small screens.


Thanks as usual for the bug reports and feedback.

sdob - does the map change default to full screen with mobile devices? Or should I report it? Remains at “exit fullscreen” on my iPhone, but that may be your intent.

Version 2.3.0 is out.

Aside from the exciting news that we have changed our versioning system, there are also a few more things that may be of interest:

  • You should no longer have '0' of items after selling them at the Bazaar or losing them through storylets.

  • Cards that are added to your hand through storylets won't overflow your deck (they'll appear the next time you have an available space in your hand).

  • The Plans tab should update when you complete a plan.

  • The Story tab should no longer completely reload when your actions update (this was causing people to lose messages they were composing while completing social actions).



Thanks for the feedback and bug reports so far. We're working through them as fast as we can.

The map is indeed intended to be full-screen on phone-sized screens all the time. The changelog wasn't very clear about this; apologies for that. Toggling fullscreen on mobile devices allows hiding the address bar and soft (usually navigation) keys on screens with limited vertical real estate.

Does this mean that if I have a full hand of cards I don't want to discard for whatever reason, on the new site I won't be able to e.g. summon the Amanuensis or get a Memory of Chains until I can make space in my hand?
If that's the case, is there any reason it can't be made to work like it does on the old site right now? From a user's point of view, the fact that it's internally a card isn't very relevant - so having it restricted by the open space in your hand, while only a minor inconvenience, is still a needless inconvenience.

Version 2.8.0 is out.

Nope! This is fixed. (There was an open ticket on it; I'm not that fast.)

The only other noteworthy change is to the way in which we fetch images during app load; this should be a little less onerous on slow connections.

Thanks as always for the bug reports and feedback.

Oh my goodness! So much better.

=)

This was likely a small thing to do, and not as much of a priority as many of the other things you’re improving. But still...very impactful to the user experience.

Thank you!!!

Version 2.9.20 is up; please refresh your browser if you're seeing an older
version.

A couple of tangible changes among the bugfixes:


  • Quality requirements on small screens should now all fit onto the same line.

  • The map now automatically closes when you enter a storylet.

  • Map location tooltips on large touch devices no longer occupy most of
    the screen width.

  • The 'Play' buttons in touch devices' card tooltips are now consistently
    functional.

  • Opportunity cards should update correctly when you move between areas
    with different opportunity decks/hands.

  • Buy/sell messages at the Bazaar are a little more nicely formatted
    now.



Many thanks, as usual, to the army of beta testers for the bug reports and
feedback!
