THE DAILY POST week of April1st-7th 2012

Hello  mafiosi, here is your latest installment of The Daily Post!

As you may have already noticed these past few weeks many of you have been getting MW warnings on your excessive levels of activity. Well, for the most part you haven’t done something terribly wrong. It is just the old bandwidth ghost coming back to haunt us. Zynga servers can not process more than one request every 3 seconds and, when you get into a “fight” emotions tend to fuel your “supper click ” mode. Mouse clicking them becomes more like 3 clicks per second  (as opposed to the 3 seconds per click Zynga needs). If you remember this and slow down a little bit, you should have nothing to worry about.

In fact, the same reason is behind Zynga’s MW latest attempt to disable the “unframe” function. This is an effort to curb the abuse of bots and scripts. Of course there are all sorts of workarounds but, they are not really unframed options, just the look of it.  It is easy to tell since only those scripts that work while “framed” will work for now. Others (like Checklist Beta) won’t work (yet).

Be patient, there are many people working on some sort of resolution to this issue and, we should get back to a stable platform soon enough. For now, take a good look at the Loot lady’s pointers and, enjoy the game as best you can.

Cheers,

Yr Friend,

Bill

      When Zynga intentionally broke unframing, they did more damage to many useful analytical scripts then to the ones they are trying to stop. Two scripts that come to mind are the Mafia Wars Helper by Tomi Crnicki and Experience/Energy 3.0 by Joyka. The easiest way to get around the unframing block is to use the Spockholm Mafia Toolbar….

      • Mark Allan was doing some server snooping and came across a few loot items. The ones that peaked my interest contain the VIP icon. Another clue is provided because there is no large image for the Roadrunner. Items that only have small images in the servers are usually collection items or for property items in Brazil, Chicago and London. This could possibly mean there will be a VIP membership collection. http://zyngapv.hs.llnwd.net/e6/mwfb/graphics/item_roadrunner_01.png Read more »

      • Josh from the [MIG] Family sent me instructions for a glitch involving the Luck of the Irish loot item from the Sláinte Gift Mastery Event. I wasn’t going to post it because so many get angry whenever I do, but this one is harmless. After Chuck Maltry Jr. posted his property image on our fan page, I decided to make the post….

      • On February 7th, 30 new war loot items were added to the inventory. If you do the math, the most items any one account could have at this point would be 1,044. I’ve been sent quite a few player profiles that exceed this number of loot items and something fishy is going on….

      • The bonus links for the day are below. The Mafia Wars Fan Blast point is good for the entire day. The Email Bonus and 3 Free Spins can be used once every 24 hours. The Toolbar bonus link will work once every 8 hours if you have allowed the Zynga Game Bar application access to your account information….
