Timer-related "bugs" in Enigma 1.00 and 1.01

Andreas Lochmann

Hi,

first of all: We can't present an April Fool's Day joke this year,
sorry. Indeed, one of our predecessors in Enigma's development team had
already implanted a bad joke for us years ago, which we now have to get
rid of.

The problem is that at least some timings are deformed on each
April 1st. We know that rotors and tops are affected; and just as
if following the global financial crisis, the worth in seconds of
coins goes rollercoaster on April 1st.

As funny as this might have been, it's not funny when it invalidates
our scores. Remember that the time and date of your score is not saved,
and hence we can't reconstruct which scores are correct, and which are
results of these evil jokes. :-(

We are about to fix the known versions of this "bug" in the development
version. However, we would like to ask you for help to find further bugs
and to find a way to clean our scores from the wrong timings. For this,
please report all wrong timings you can find tomorrow while playing --
be it slower-than-usual or faster-than-usual rotors, tops, coinslots,
or whatever else (the difference in speed might be quite small, it still
makes a large difference in score(. Thank you for your help to find
these anomalies.

Best,
Andreas

Hi all,

okay, this year's April (or, rather, March) Fool's Day joke
was a try on a meta-joke, and maybe was too obvious to most
of you - nevertheless thanks for those, who played along ;)

(And, yes, there is no such thing as a timer-related April
Fool's Day bug in Enigma! Couldn't ever! What do you think
of us? ;-)  )

Best,
Andreas

Enigma may be very clever and fool many of us, and he(she) has quicker
reflexes than most of us -- but he doesn't know what day it is.

Cheers, David

*sigh* ... discussed this already last year ...

Okay: First of all. Just the moment April 1st begins in one part of our
world, it already ends in another. Hence, there is no global April 1st.
Second. Not everyone looks at the mag-heut-board on a daily basis.
So shall we exclude them from the gag?
Third. It's tradition from last year and the year before that
"our" April 1st lasts some days longer than elsewhere.

Hope this explains our practice.

Best,
Andreas
