We all know the feeling when a glitch gets us: the initial confusion, the subsequent disbelief, the anger. Maybe your bridge became wobbly for no reason and it launched you out of the map, or maybe you glitched out of that swing again. The developers addressed the issue of preprepared items (e.g. the anvil god, cars, etc.) falling apart with one of the recent updates, but in the time before they did, gameplay was quite different from normal. Do you think that they should work on fixing glitches before releasing new maps and items?

I don't think they should test maps. I think it gives the new maps a "beta tester" sort of feel. Being there while all the terrible glitches take place is a nice feeling to have.

It may also have to do with lag while everyone is connecting to a server. That's why I suggest we go to the secondary english server.

Is there really less lag on that server?
I don't know.

There probably is less lag, because fewer people use the en2 server, so people connecting wouldn't cause as many problems. However, the lag also depends on everyone's connection, so we can't do anything about people who have poor connections and who, as a result, lag a lot.

Based on the replies so far, most people like the glitches because they add to the feel of the game, making it more fun to play. I agree, since Transformice is the only game to have made me laugh.

Hai Guise, first post after forumstalking for a few days.


Anyways, I found the first glitch ingame that hasn't really made me laugh, though the reply did Smile.

It happened right after the balls respawned.

I never glitch out. Pretty annoying to be the only one who can't get out. xD
But I love it when suddenly a bridge starts glitching and everyone gets launched.

Is it because you have a faster connection? Slow connections and lag may be the reason people have glitches. It may also be because there are many people on the first English server, and I'm sure people on the secondary server have less lag.

Yeah I think the 2nd server has less lags, that's why I always play there. My internet is pretty slow, but my computer is very fast so that might be it.

What is wrong with this picture?



Yep, the drag and the other shaman's plank switched places. This seems to happen quite a lot, especially with bombs...

When two shammies spawn at the same time RUNE gets SPIRIT up, I used that glitch to take down an SHAMAN shammy's airship, I spawned at anvil at the same time as his balloon and the anvil got roped to it and epically BALLOON the airship.

Something that I witnessed while playing earlier today: using glitching as a way to save mice. One mouse decided--unwisely--to ignore the shaman's arrows, and consequently became trapped behind a plank. The shaman, well versed in the art of glitching, cannoned the mouse through the plank to the cheese, thus leaving no mouse behind.

I like Shamans that save all of the mice. Though they're probably doing it for points, it still makes me happy.

Some glitches are actually useful, like glitching out of a cart, (I hate being in that cart) but a lot more are not.

I think they should devote a day to shutting down all the servers and trying to fix every glitch they can find. Then the following day they can open the new, glitch-free servers. Not that big of a deal, really.

They don't have to shut down the servers to work on an update; they just have to edit the code of the swf file (or however they do it) on their own machines and then, when they're done, shut down the servers for a few minutes while they get rid of the old and replace it with the new. If the glitches were that big a deal, they'd have them fixed by now, but with each new update, usually something else gets broken in the process, and it's a vicious cycle. Your best bet would be to learn how to play around the glitches.

So..what you're saying is...they don't have to shut down the servers for updates but they have to shut down their servers for a few minutes which is kind of the same thing.

Well hurr durr derpity derp, what's so crazy about my idea? I mean, they had to shut down the servers to solve the hacking thing... I don't see the difference, really. Sure, the glitches aren't that big of a deal, but, hey, they look like they can be fixed rather easily.

(Don't quote me on that though, I'm no programmer.)
