Well since the sparklies have recently been turned on again I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to collect the Minkata sparky which I missed on this server a few months back. However when I come to the Kiva where the sparky rests and run over it, there is no "swoosh" sound and my sparkie 6 slot in Relto remains vacant. I have tried this several times now and even tried restarting the client several times with no luck.

I had a little snoop in my logs and when I try to collect an already collected sparky I get a note similar to:
Quote:
xCalendarStar.OnNotify(): already have the stone: psnlCalendarStone08

However when I try to collect the Minkata sparky I get a rather peculiar note:
Quote:
xCalendarStar.OnNotify(): state = 1, id = 1
DEBUG: xCalendarStar.OnNotify(): received notify from non-local player, ignoring...


Any ideas on this one? Anyone else having a similar problem trying to collect the Minkata sparky now who happened to miss it last time as well? I seem to remember way back when Minkata was first tested here there were problems getting this sparky as well.

I haven't submitted a ticket on this particular bug since this is only something we will experience here. The Minkata sparky will remain off in Live... or as far as we know.

Try borrowing someone else's Minkata and see if you can pick it up there... It might have gotten cross-wired somehow. ;)

Ok I gave this a try in someone else's Minkata and experienced the same problem so no solution so far. I've also run into someone with the same problem so it's good to know I'm not alone on this one.

I've decided I will submit a ticket after all, a bug is a bug regardless of who is going to see it :roll:

Isn't the spark in Minkata only meant to work at either day or night?

You are correct with that. The sparkly in Minkata is meant to be found only during daylight and that's working fine. I get the sparkly vision in daylight and not during night.

Unfortunately even in daylight and when visible the sparkly cannot be collected due to the mentioned bug.

I remember us having trouble collecting the sparkly in Minkata when it first came out. Could this be related to that old bug?

I cannot collect the Minkata spark, either, with a new avvie. I have gone back there several times after logging out and back on, after quitting and restarting, changing day to night and back again, etc., etc.

So the one avvie I have that has finished Ahnonay is missing that one spark. :(

Same here. I managed to find the hole in one run for a change and have been dancing in and around the Sparklie for a minute or so. Nothing happened. Hopefully they'll pick up on this by the time we have to test the end result of 12 sparklies (I hope :) )

Ditto. Minkata sparkly is a ghost.

Either that, or it's the little man who wasn't there, as in...

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn't there
He wasn't there again today
Gee I wish he'd go away.
:P

Sorry -- I'm a little punchy from getting lost in Minkata. :shock: And when I finally stumbled into Hole #2, I had the same problem as the rest of you. I can see the sparklie but it's impossible to collect.

So close, yet so far!! :)

Tried yesterday with a new regression tester avvie and the only sparkie not collectable is the Minkata for me. I tried as others all sorts of things but nothing is working. I also note that the music is so faint I am not really sure its playing at all or my music imagination is playing it in my head because it knows it should be there. Well they do have till next June to repair this, that is if they are going to cycle them again next season.
