    I've believe I've found a work around for video code 24317. At least it's worked the past dozen or so times. 'X' out of the 'secure special bonus' screen, at the next screen where is says 'Video stopped' hit RESTART, the video will still fail, but this time wait for the 'reload' option in the video screen. Click reload and a video will play.


    It also doesn't seem to matter which order this happens in, they just need to both be done, once. I've done both 'restart' the 'reload' and a 'reload' then a 'restart'. Each time I got a video to play.

    PTR1- Video 24317 is about the only one that is selected for me. It takes multiple login / logouts to grab a different video that I can actually play.


    I have noticed that occasionally the video windows opens with 17491 and then switches to 24317. Sometimes it goes from 17491 to 21781 and then to 24317.


    Those other codes are only displayed for less than a second, even so, I've seen them so many times I'm pretty sure I have them correct.

    PTR1 - Video code 24317 continues to be a problem. It was the only video that would come up during the previous end game, and it refused to play, so I could not watch a single one. Now, at the start of an era 1, it comes up frequently and it still will not play at all. I have to log out and log back in to grab a different video. Even then I only get the station bonus as it tends to grab 24317 for the personal bonus.


    Please fix this video or remove it from the pool until a fix is found.

    PTR1 - Video code in upper left corner - 24317 is a problem. I have to reload it multiple times before it will play, sometimes I have to refresh and then grab a different video to play. Which isn't to bad if it is the first one, for the station bonus, but when it's the second one, for the player bonus, I lose what ever prize I might have received.

    It would be wonderful if we could create groups of engines, so instead of doing a manual select of 10 or more engines or doing a select all and scrolling through to uncheck the ones we don't want. We could just places engines in a group and then do a group select and be done. The ability to created at least 5 groups would be awesome.

    Perhaps in final RPs could be used to speed up a section of track by 25 - 50% for 1 hour either for association or individal. You could limit it to only 3 - 5 sections at one time. Maybe donate RP's to city and mayor / council would decided on which sections to speed up.

    ok, but my lottery was level 3 when I won the research points. If it matters I had won the tickets during levels 1 & 2, but I didn't scratch them. I specifically saved them until my lottery level was higher so I could get a better prize.

    When playing videos from the widget I do not receive prize for watching second video. I always get the station bonus and the second video always plays, I just don't get the prize. This just started 1 or 2 days ago. When I first joined the session on PTR1 the videos worked fine. Now I only get the second prize if I watch from the train station

    Andrea, this is most likely an issue with your particular machine. I too run a low-end i5 but only a 2.3Ghz. I have PTR1 & PTR3 running all the time in Firefox, with a few other tabs open as well. I also keep Chrome running with multiple tabs and a Steam game running as well and my system fan is not running at all. Check for updates for your machine, windows, Flash or browser and that might correct your issue.

    I've had no issues getting to Talos, via Satyr. Everything accepted my clicks. Some people have had issues with different research items and the clickable area of different upgrades. My advice would be just to move the mouse around on the upgrade you need to research and keep clicking until you find the right spot.


    If this doesn't answer your question please try to be a little more specific as to exactly what your specific issue is.

    I've researched past Satyr and it worked correctly, it unlocked Talos not Leviathan. So it seems that the graphic for the Satyr research progressing is incorrect but that the research does follow the main tech tree. Perhaps someone else can follow the Aten path and see if it does unlock Leviatan as it should, or if it jumps straight to Centaur.

    That's the same way it is for me. The tree shows Talos after Satyr, but when in researching Satyr it shows Levithan as the next engine.


    On the tree is shows Levithan after Aten, but when in researching Aten it shows Centaur as next engine, skipping Levithan completly.


    I'm currently on the Satyr path and should know later today if it actually unlocks Talos or Levithan or something else... ?(


    Both Talos & Levithan show Centaur as the next engine.
