    There's a major problem with the city finds for those on torn that use screenreader's.
    A screenreader doesn't see the map so it is impossible to be able to find anything on a map.
    Just wondering if anything is being done as well to have the city finds as random events, as it was prior to respo?
    City finds were a huge part of the game that now is a big part of torn taken away from those of us that play torn that have to use a screenreader.
    Extremely disappointing to have merit's maxed out on awareness and they're absolutely useless.
    Just wondering if there is a resolution for this in the near future???

    This is the first time I've heard of screenreaders but I haven't heard of anything concerning exceptions to the new update.
    If it comes down to it I'll message Ched or another staff member about making the old system a possibility.

    No offense Raiyvin, but do you really want them to scrap an entire system because a handful of people use screen-readers?
    And are you even serious that city finds were a "huge part" of the game?

    i am pretty sure that tornberry (the developer) is working with you in your bugreport to help solve those issues?

    Completely agree. I don't think anyone should spend time or money for the benefit of a handful of people. I'm actually my city's principal advocate against ramp installations, braille publications, closed captions and textphones.

    Also, if people spent merits on awareness without accounting for the future possibility of a system update, it's their own fault and it serves them right. That's why I never spent any merits and never will, as any of them could become useless on my computer in a future update. Raiyvin should learn to plan ahead.

    As to scrapping the updates not at all.

    And Tornberry is working and getting issues worked out and doing a great job of it.

    This isn't something Tornberry would be able to magically make a screenreader do but if as in previous posts of others who may or may not use screenreaders to have the random events for city finds say possibly as a choice in settings?

    So that those on mobile phones or for whatever reason can make that choice.

    And with the city finds I have made some pretty good finds so it does help to be able to sell those and make some money.

    Well Mauk,

    sorry can't quote your post but I really do hope that you never are in any kind of accident that will put you into a wheelchair and need those ramps to be able to go down to the corner store to pick up a carton of milk or a loaf of bread.

    Or for some reason you lose the use of your eyes to be able to pick up the daily newspaper or lose the use or your ears to hear a song or a television program or be able to take in a concert.

    Thing is millions of people do lose the use of a sense or extremity each year so all I can say is I hope you never have to deal with any of the obstacles that you are so dead against having in your community.

    That's why you never spent merits or never will? That makes absolutely no sense.

    Mauk, I *did* see the sarcasm right away since it was obvious, and I still take issue with your post. Right right, compare being unable to participate in a minor part of an online game, to getting rid of ramps for handicapped people in real life. ffs.

    And Raiyvin, if I took a huge part of the pie I'm taking like over half. City finds are more like 2% of the game, if that, not 60%. No offense but it's minor, not huge. Just *my* PAs since Respo have made like 1.6b and given me fat CE and some respect and about a level's worth of experience, and PAs aren't a huge part of the game. Much bigger than city finds, and still not huge.

    Things come out in text often differently then in speech and I wasn't the one who put in advocating aginst accessibility issues, being that many on here liked the random events it's something put out there for the coders if they are able to as to put a choice for whomever would like there city finds to be as they were previously which would also work for those who do use screenreaders as well.

    I don't like (didn't rate, though) your post because I *did* see the sarcasm. Right right, compare being unable to participate in a minor part of an online game to getting rid of ramps for handicapped people in real life. ffs.

    In hindsight I shouldn't have singled out your post-- what Iespeciallydidn't like is the fact that other people agreed with it.

    But I was intentionally deceptive in that analogy because you were also deceptive in your post. This isn't about scraping the entire feature, and you even decided to ignore the wasted merits angle, if it were to be left as-is without resolution.

    No one asked to scrap it. This is simply a bug. It's a feature that was working for them before and isn't anymore. Apparently they are working on it.

    So wait, other than the title (where I assume the op hasn't found anything in the city yet and is complaining) what is the topic here?

    I've found plenty in the city since respo came out. It's just a pain in the butt.

    I'd rather have the random events.

    Ta ta for another few weeks when I see the need for another post and log in.
