Monster codes have been changed

  • Monster codes have been changed

    If you check Monsters on the Public list, you'll see that monsters that used to have ":101" at the end of the code now have ":145" (I haven't checked all mpool=101 monsters though).
    In the same way, Thanatos of Fire and Ice which used to be :100 is now :144.
    Other monster types seem to have kept the part of their code related to their mpool (:1, :2, :3, and probably :4). Though once again, I've only checked a few.


    However that's not the only change. The full Monster code has been changed. At least for me. It's not the same anymore, at all.

    Will it now change with each new monster summon, as it has been asked in the past?
    Have the codes been changed (or much better, the code system reworked) because the devs are trying to block scripters, with all the Praetorian and baby Mephs discussion going on recently?
    Edit: Although I suppose if only the codes change and not the links, nothing will change in that regard.


    This change was reported because someone on Discord 4 hours ago couldn't share his Cronus Astaroth because the monster code was not working. It was db94f51:145. Now it has changed again and it's working (418ccch:145 - the monster is public so I don't think it's an issue sharing it right now, and I can edit the code out on a later day if necessary).

    So 4 hours ago, I randomly chose a few monsters on the public list, and the two :145 codes I copied from public monsters weren't working, while the few :3 and :1 codes I tested worked.
    It was very few tests, so it might have been a coincidence, however there were definitely codes that weren't working.
    Now just a few minutes ago I tried testing a few other :145 mobs from the public list and the codes worked. Again, very few tests, idk if it's fixed for all monsters.
    I also don't know why changing :101 to :145.


    I also tested a few links (using the at-first-not-working Astaroth) to see if things had changed.

    The default link of the monster was still with mpool=101:
    https://apps.facebook.com/castle_age...xxxx&mpool=101 (casuser edited out so it's not a working link)

    Changing it to mpool=144 and mpool=2 still redirected to the Astaroth, for some reason (not so surprising for mpool=2 since for quite some time now we can't summon Epic Team monsters and mpool=101 monsters at the same time).
    mpool=1, 3 and 100 don't redirect to it.
    And then I tried mpools that so shouldn't exist.
    5 doesn't redirect to an active monster, but 6, or 65 (chosen randomly), redirect to this Astaroth.
    Didn't feel like trying hundreds of numbers so I stopped there.

    No idea how to make sense of all this TBH.

    So it appears Monsters "caught in the middle of the change" have some issues, while monsters summoned after the change don't.

    For instance, I got a report that 2 players who had previously summoned mpool=101 monsters couldn't summon a mpool=2 monster.
    However, 2 other players who had no ongoing monsters prior to the change were then able to summon from all 4 main monster pools (1, 2, 3, 101, others haven't been tested).
    So it appears there is no more overlap between mpool=101 and mpool=2!


    Furthermore, the links working weirdly may also be only for monsters "caught in the middle".

    The link for the Astaroth in the first post only truly works when using mpool=101.
    It's a little weird. By "truly works" I mean this: when you use the mpool=101 link, it show you the monster normally, with all attackers in the Activity leaderboard. But if you use any other mpool that still directs to the Astaroth, it shows it with only 2 Attackers, and a lot more HP remaining that what it actually has. It was probably the state of the monster before the code change happened.
    I tried attacking it, and it "updates" it and shows the monster in its current state (but if you reload the link with a different mpool than 101, it shows you again the old state).

        Maybe I'll be lucky enough to be able to summon monsters normally again now. That would be great!

            Monster codes are still not unique for each summon. The user portion is the same for each of the 4 types.

              I just summoned a Cronus Astaroth, followed by an Emerald Dragon

              I don't know if this code change fixed or modified anything besides that, but that's great already!

                Hello there

                I'm trying to hit 2 Alexandras for a chaos gem requirement, and both of them are behaving strangely. After every hit on web3, it goes to a blank black screen, and if you reload the CA home page again and navigate to the monster, it shows added damage, but then when you hit again it goes to the black screen. So you can accrue damage, but you have to go through the process of hitting, reloading home page, navigating to monster... I thought it might be a bug for web3, so I tried it on iOS, and the Alexes are shown in my monster list, but when you click on them, it says 'Monster not found' but then loads up the monster image with the attack buttons (but they don't do anything when you try and click on them).

                I think this change to monsters might have caused some bugs...? Is anybody else experiencing this? (sorry if this is old news or talked about in another thread).

                      Looks like it had nothing to do with the code change, since it also affected Battles.

                      Also looks like the bugs didn't last too long, fortunately

                      @mods could you maybe move the posts to this thread? http://www.castleageforums.com/cforu...tting-monsters

                        Well that didn't last long, or it was just a fluke maybe.

                        In any case, yesterday it didn't let me summon an Emerald Dragon because of my Cronus Astaroth.

                          the only change I see and have verified so far is that the part before the ":" has been re-randomized for each player but is consistent throughout the different mpools and multiple monsters in the same mpool

                          the monster link is still the same because the user id is...obviously still the same

                          I guess if you were relentlessly gate crashed by guildemesh previously you now might have a reprieve

                          Another idea is that since the devs seem to be doing regular maintenance they can reset the monster codes each time, can't hurt

                            Well they did not fix the issue of monsters summon slots conflict. I tried to summon a Vargulis and got this message instead:

                            You have already summoned a monster, The Ancient Sea Serpent, or the timer has not run out on the previous monster you have summoned, try again in 26 hour(s) Go to the Monster Battle Page to engage your summoned bosses and monsters.
