What We Know About Version 2.15.1

  • Normally an Update would just be 2.15.0 and the 2.15.1 indicates there was a bug fix of some kind but we never saw the 2.15.0 version so don’t think you’re crazy if you didn’t see the post.
  • The Welcome Sign has changed. It gives you daily quests as well as the ability to collect a free gift. I notice my free gift said I could collect again in 2 hours and 53 minutes. The next one says I cn collect in 13 m 25 s. Go figure that timing. I haven’t paid enough attention to know it it’s always that time or if the time you have to wait changes. When you open your game the first time after updating it walks you through all the steps and shows you the new stuff. It appears it will no longer give you room keys as rewards. Not that it gave many to begin with.
  • The new quests are all for the Match Three Mini Games so far. My energy requirement went from 90 to 72 so not a huge drop in energy requirements. They have this new way of giving levels that was pushed through in the background and they go from 1/15 to 15/15 levels. It still takes the same amount of Diamonds to get more moves at the end and the levels are difficult to do without using specials or diamonds.
  • One of the new quests required you to play the cards mini game. They turn them over and move them way too fast for me to track and I’m at a super low level in cards since I never play them. They need to slow it down! I can’t imagine having more cards to match!
  • They made everything smaller! Not any of the room items but the font is really small now. I did my first search in the Kitchen in Words Mode and the font was so small I could barely read it. I know I have vision problems but it was already a small font. I use a 12.9″ iPad so I have a big screen.Kitchen Smaller words 2.15.1
  • The Dried-up tree is above the Achievements. Today, October 30, it came to life with a Full Moon quest string. You will get some keys the first time to search it. After you have searched it once Full Moon monsters appear to banish to get more keys. Or it says search the rooms. This is called the Twilight Chamber. 1 each gets me to 73% of the first Mastery Star. After you do your first search there is a popup telling you about books you can fill during the full moon. Of course the font is small. They have a whole screen to put this in, why not give us something big enough to read? There are new collections to go with the full moon quests. They have a Full Moon icon in the upper right hand corner. This Event lasts for 10 days. You can see it on the icon on the right side of your screen.
  • There is no longer the little i for information that will give you the chance of finding an item in the room.

Ok, that’s what I know. This is a struggle for me to read items in the game. Already I had little enthusiasm to play and have barely been checking in. This update didn’t excite me. I wanted them to fix things like Guilds. I’d like to be able to form a guild of players that I know will work together on an event. Or even give players the chance to opt in or out of being in a guild.

I’m just not interested in playing. I’m going to work on winding down the website. The original MM for iPad has become stale and I know many of you use the quest strings and collections table to search.

I’m playing Seeker’s Notes, I can see the items in the room and read all the words so it’s a much better fit for me. I’ve posted a page so players of Seekers Notes and Secret Society can share their friend codes.

Please put your comments here if you’d like.

There appears to be a new update dated for today ( 11/12/18) but the information listed is the same as the previous update. Has anyone done the update?

    MM_Admin

    The update took away the African Room. They claim they are making the game better. But they keep taking away progressand things you may have spent money on.

    Dorian

    I have a feeling GI will upgrade the room as they did the Bedroom and Dressing Room….oh joy

Ostrich

Yes, the latest update constantly crashes on my iPad too. As ma.dorman says, it takes your energy but forgets the rewards. I have raised a ticket about this but only got a lame response of “it’ll be fixed in later releases”. There’s no way I’m spending anymore money / diamonds until that happens …. it sucks all the joy out of what is supposed to be a fun and relaxing pastime.

ma.dorman

Suprise…..2.15.3 is now out. More stability issues. My game crashes almost every other search or mini-game. Of course, it takes all my energy, tools and awards with it. But never remembers to give me the awards, diamonds or credit for a win.

Kelly

I think they have blocked me from the Facebook page as the comments I write no longer appear haha. I guess they didn’t like the negative things I had to say!

I’m on the latest update, and have a question about the daily quests. I have one that says “get items from rooms”. WTF? I managed to find 1, but I don’t know what counts. Doesn’t seem to be quest items. No explanation given. Any ideas?

    Dorian

    I had the same question. I couldn’t figure it out either.

    MM_Admin

    I looked at my daily quests list yesterday and didn’t have that one. Did anyone take a screen shot and open a ticket?

    Kelly

    They have said there is a error with this and that they are fixing it.

Paula

Anyone else have an issue with exploring the twilight chamber? I am trying to do the quests and when I entered there were no items in the list. As a result I not only lost energy (which is very short supply) but I also lost my winning streak progress. (I was at 140/150 argggh). I tried using tools but they wouldn’t work. Any ideas.? I tried report8ng a bug and can’t find how to do it.

    MM_Admin

    This link will take you to the page that explains how to Open a ticket.. I noticed a version 2.15.2 was released yesterday so make sure you have the latest version. When you open you ticket ask them to give you the rewards you lost.

MM_Admin

I have a bug with the Hoarfrost phenomena. As I try to swipe around the screen to clear it my screen jumps around. I made sure I wasn’t zoomed in on anything and it still jumped around. I opened a ticket.

Pat Hilliard

I have started playing Murder in the Alps. They have an energy issue, too. But i am OK with that because I don’t want to play as much. It is more interactive and is easier to follow right now. I do like the update for the new MM but actually only playing to use up my diamonds and then plan to quit both MM’s. Thanks for all you and Ken are/have been doing. And thanks for the continued updates.

    Snowdoll

    I also came across Murder in the Alps about a week ago and started playing. As you say, not much energy but otherwise it’s quite interesting.

    I’m stuck because the key won’t open the globe. I keep dragging it over to the globe and it won’t go in the lock and open it.
    It took forever for me to get the lighter to light the alcohol lamp to soften the wax to get the key….grrrrrr…..

      MM_Admin

      I have had these problems repeatedly with the objects they want you to do this with. Then they tell me there is nothing wrong with the game. Finally after hundreds of times I get it to work. I did have one occasion where it was a bug and I had to wait days to fix it.

        ma.dorman

        Finally, I just closed the game and waited another day. It opened with ease. Then the hard part was to get the stupid globe to open up! Finally…..perseverence!

ma.dorman

I haven’t updated since 2.12.0 due to the listing of problems with the size of objects and font. I’m not even sure if I want to update now. At this point my biggest problem is the crashing of the game after every 5 searches or after 2 rounds of the match-3.
I don’t know which is worse….but I’m fast losing interest in worrying about it.
Currently I’m stuck because of all the rooms I cannot open – for which the pieces that need to be assembled will take me about a year or more to gather. I don’t think I can care for that long.

    MM_Admin

    Yes, I have had a comment from one of the players that you get stuck in the full moon quests because you can’t get the chargers to charge the collections. I have not opened rooms in ages. Still only half way on the Lab. And I can’t get keys to play the rooms I have open. Even on the Facebook page the admin doesn’t really make any comments to the issues players have with the game. It seems they are just doing what they want and not anything to solve player problems.

      Snowdoll

      It is a pity that the update did not address friends or keys. I see in a couple of replies to reviews on the App Store that they say the key issue will be improved, but when?? By the time they do they will have lost all their players.

    ma.dorman

    I went ahead and updated…..and the crashes are worst than ever! Good grief!
