We’ve just fixed a bug that caused some sets not to display correctly.

Topic: Picma - Picture Enigmas / Bugs

The provider hosting Picma’s servers is having some technical issues. We’re trying to minimize the repercussions on our side and hopefully everything will be resolved in a few more hours.

We’re looking into it. This is probably due to the cloud save feature we’re adding to the game – we tried really hard not to break the current system while working on the new one but we apparently did. :/

We had a bit of a snag on that part of the server so no puzzles were accepted for a few days. It’s now working as intended and any puzzles that have been accepted will leave the queue in a matter of hours.

No worries, glad you managed to find the solution!

Our puzzle generator has been thoroughly tested over the years and we can guarantee all puzzles have unique solutions.

Display issues are however very much possible. Please send us a bug report with a screenshot so we can investigate.

This went straight into our to-do list. ;)

We’ll look into it. We want the game to be as accessible as possible and adding something like that as an option is indeed possible.

It will take however quite a bit to get there as we’re currently working on the tablet version of the game.

We’re aware that performance on the larger boards is not ideal. We’re working to improve it.

- Implementing an Undo/Redo button is definitely in our roadmap.

- We don’t have plans to implement a “lock” function as you should really only paint a square when you’re 100% sure of it. We do have plans however (like the undo function) to reduce the impact of accidental clicks.

- One of our next features will be a multi-slot save/load function. Your paid in-progress puzzles will then be easy to find.

- Being able to share a specific puzzle is something we plan to do, but we’re still working out the details/UI. The archives are generated every few weeks. All puzzles in our library up to that point will then be found somewhere in the archive.

The hints should never appear all faded unless the puzzle is solved.

We thought we had fixed this bug but apparently we didn’t. We’ll look into it further.

That info helps, we’ll try to replicate and fix it.

We’ll soon add save slots but we intend to have it save multiple puzzles instead of multiple saves per puzzle. We’ll consider that option though.

@batmanone We’ll look further into it but we’ve been unable to replicate the issue in our initial testing. If you find more specific conditions for the bug to appear please let us know.

@ZeroNobody The issue actually seems to be related to the lack of the account data being sent in some cases. We’re trying to figure it out.

@Halancar Thanks, it’s been fixed!

We’ll consider re-introducing the feature based on player feedback.

The next update is just a couple of days away and it will bring several performance improvements.

I was unable to replicate your previous issue (after our latest tweaks to the server). Could you please give a step-by-step guide to get it to show the bug?

That helps quite a bit. We’ll investigate if there’s some occasional issue with the account data we’re receiving from Kongregate.

We’re terribly behind in responding individually to your suggestions but rest assured that all of them have been read (and some are now in our to-do list).

There were indeed some server issues (beyond our control) a few days ago. In response we did a few tweaks that should stop puzzle saves/completion to get bugged like before.

@RigelHaloran & fra87 The bug causing that issue should now be fixed.

@andantette It was a temporary problem caused by a pruning of the Plus puzzle database that removed puzzles that were too easy (about 2% of the total).

@Mooniekate I was unable to replicate your issue. Is it still happening for you?

@jennifer626 & batmanone Does it still look like that after a page refresh? It was probably a visual “hiccup” as the database data looks good.

@Pykrete We haven’t made any changes to the online version in a couple of weeks. We also haven’t been able replicate the issue in our own Chrome. Could you please let us know your Chrome version and if there’s a particular game mode that causes this for you?

@Mechsrule1 We haven’t experienced any crashes. What browser/version are you using? In the meanwhile, whenever the game is paused the puzzle is saved (even if you don’t “Save and Quit”) so you can use that to save frequently and progress even with the crashes.

@purgedarkness & muckling Are you able to test it out on a different computer/network? There have been a few isolated reports like yours but it seems to be working for the majority of players and we have been unable to get it to stop working even with very restrictive firewall settings.

Topic: Picma - Picture Enigmas / Is there a mistake checker?

We had a similar feature in the past but ended up removing it as it trivialized the challenge.

Instead we have hints around the puzzle that fade as you solve it and we will soon add an undo/redo function.

We’re unlikely to ever add an import option due to several potential issues, but we’ll definitely consider adding an export option so you can treat the editor as a bare-bones painting program and save your work permanently, regardless of what happens to it in the moderation process.

There’s a (very) tiny chance we’ll save it from the rejected pile if we feel the community was too harsh in passing judgement.

However, given the volume of puzzles that process is rather slow (and doesn’t happen regularly).

Apologies for the delay in answering. Between Christmas and the New Year our work schedule got a bit disrupted.

@amoebe & wfaulk We haven’t changed the game since Dec, 18. I imagine it was related to a temporary server outage but assuming the issue remains please send us a direct bug report so we can look into it further.

@lolgast It’s a known issue that we hope to have fixed in a few days.

@Tauya & The_Markness Thanks. We’ll fix that in the next update.

@SkylerF The initial issue was actually the same reported by lolgast. The hints are being incorrectly faded (sometimes). We’ll have it fixed soon and we’ll look into the secondary issue as it’s rather odd. We also have an “undo” function planned for a future update.

@Krolan & genesis198 Your progress did not get wiped. At the time the game was having trouble connecting to the server and “booted” into guest mode (as indicated by the notification that appeared in the middle of the screen).

@Delthin & purgedarkness We had a server outage. Everything should be working properly now.

@Incarnadin Sorry. We’re going to add more save slots very soon!
