In case anybody just happened to "accidentally" replace the newer core with the older one to double the points...

Anyone who gets a natural update should have no trouble; only those who manually replace 1.25 with 1.24 will have issues.

So the moral of the story is: if the server hands out a new core version, just use it .

And thanks Jade, wow I had no idea that was even happening. At least it's corrected and an effective plan to prevent it.

Yeah. Sorry guys. The party's over with the doubling points. The returned units (59XX) were not corrupt. But they were missing information.

I'm sure we'd all agree the quality of the research is what's important

The good news is that everybody gets to keep their points

Only problem is that those folding with the 182.xx drivers seem to have taken a PPD hit as well with this new 1.25 core

You guys better watch out. Ranger and I are gearing up for next month, after that bogus doubling points fiasco. We are going to let loose with the full firepower of the Rangers and Rockhounds from all over the world!
