Auction House and lost items.

Post by Mim » 20 Feb 2019 11:50

Hello!

Sometimes when you buy an item in the AH, the item is lost.
When checking 'aulist' you see at the bottom "There are items awaiting you at the auction house."

When entering the tent there is:

The clever broad-shouldered dwarf says: Welcome, Mim! Please stay here, I
have something for you.
The clever broad-shouldered dwarf scratches his head.
The clever broad-shouldered dwarf says: I thought I had something for you,
anyway. It seems to have disappeared!
The clever broad-shouldered dwarf sighs deeply.
The clever broad-shouldered dwarf says: Please come back later. I need to
investigate this.

Alas, for weeks (months?) this bug has not been identified and corrected.
Does anyone know the reason for this to happen?
Does anyone have a clue what might have heppened and if there is a way to prevent it?

Yesterday I bought an item that had a max price 20 (80).
I offered 80, the paddle danced, and I entered the tent after 1-2mins.
And the item was not there.
Now I'm stuck with the situation described above.

Mirandus posted on the common board that there's been issues again that they're looking into.

I think for me the situation has most often been me buying an item that didn't last across armageddon, and then I have forgotten to pick it up before.

Because of that, I also get the message that I have something waiting, and he cannot find it.

The magical power coursing through your veins slowly but surely draws your life force away...
The clever broad-shouldered dwarf thunders: Welcome, Goldbezie! Please stay here, I have something for you.

It seems the problem still exist.
I paid 135 plats for an ogre imbued item and i really want that imbue...
I already reported the bug, but i do hope someone will fix this fast and give me my item :)

I did notice after I wrote my post.
But quite likely he wrote his post before I wrote mine, making my post one of the more untimely posts ever. :(

Mim, we love you anyway :)

And yes, this bug is very annoying.

Go, go power Miranda!

Ok. We are supposed to post the lost items to AoP.
I completely agree with them who thinks this is boardering to the rediculous.
How on earth are we supposed to know what was stolen?

Now that we know what happened I think everything should be taken care of in a much better way.

I can live with those inventor gnomes using their gnome-tool-lockpick breaking in the Terel bank vault every armageddon stealing 2000 plats, 2000 gold and 2000 silvers.
But allowing them to break into the wooden counter inside the AH is not ok.

From the wooden counter hear a soft -:"Click!"

After the above happening I got my third 'lost item' message from the dwarf.
This time a 300 plat waraxe with pronounced aura of acid sheen.

I actually think this should be treated as 'bug exploiting' but Mirandus told me it is not.
Why this can continue is beyond belief.
Pfff!

Anyone who knows who that short legged gnome is, pls mail me so I can take care of him the Genesis way.

Code: Select all

North Pier of Gont.
There are two obvious exits: north and west.
A [short legged gnome] arrives sneaking from the west.
A [short legged gnome] decides to come out of hiding.
A short legged gnome attacks you!
impale
Your muscles tense as you prepare to impale.
A short legged gnome whips out his unusual battle waraxe from his belt and with a loud 'WHOOSH' throws it aiming at your head.
Blood spatters everywhere as the axe hits you squarely between the eyes, you sense bones shattering.
Splashes of acid go flying wildly around you, as you are extremely hurt by the magical properties of the weapon.
You die.
Your bo

Okay, this is ridiculous. Who is that gnome??
