Nice, for the last 4 days I did Shitty Guard I didn't get any gold, this means nearly SIXTY HOURS of time just vanished into nothing. Frigging fail man, annoys the shit out of me.

...Elaborate, please. You set Guard for... 4 days? The max is 10 hours.

He probably means that in the past 4 days he's been doing shifts (doesn't matter how long) and never received his payment after any of those shifts.

You'd think he'd file a more comprehensive bug report after the first failure.

Or screenshot the second failure as part of trying to help bugfix the first failure.

Or the 4 subsequent failures would have been recorded in a fashion more helpful than basically a rage against the developers.

But sure, I'll bite.

Reasons you might not have gotten gold based on the plethora of information provided:

1. You are a low level character. It may seem like you're not getting gold, because you aren't, you're getting piddling silver until you level up. City Guard scales with level.

2. You are somebody's farm. You are leaving your machine on city guard when you walk away and 1-10 hours later you receive your gold but you aren't physically at your machine. Then, you get attacked 10-20 times before you come back and each time you lose 10% of what you are carrying, which adds up.

3. You're doing it wrong. You need to click okay after dragging your city guard meter to the desired number of hours. Then you need to have a flat log out, tab close, etc to ensure that the city guard becomes background. This means no tavern, no arena, no dungeons for the entire duration and periodic checking to make sure city guard is still pending (and counting down). Pressing buttons that change this state is bad.

4. You're getting pwned by someone that has your login details. You shared your password and now your friend is moronically cancelling your city guard shifts, either as an in-joke or because they really don't like you. Additionally, you may have logged in with your character a public computer and because sfgame uses cookies (that even bypass chrome's porn mode) you're character was never logged out and some school chum or teacher keeps messing with you because neither of you can figure out how to click the "logout" button to switch accounts and/or stop playing.

5. Your flash is funny. Flash needs an upgrade because if it isn't regularly updated, it will occasionally break your games and youtubes. If you have 9 or 10 flash/silverlight tabs open, this also causes stress to your system which may start to fail applications like sfgame. It's surprising that you aren't missing 200 mushrooms and have $10,000 charged to your credit card by now.

6. A wizard did it. All of the above possibilities are impossible, make no sense, or make you feel like less of an awesome person than you really are. The only possible explanation is that an evil genie-like force that controls the universe is doing something sadistic for purposes unknown and it is someone else's responsibility to figure out how to fix it without any physical or textual representation of the details of the problem because you, the consumer, are just taht aw350m3.

1. I'am lvl 43, no silver
2. I hardly ever get attacked, when I do I win most of the battles.
3. I got a lvl 54 toon on the dutch servers aswell, I can safely say I'am NOT doing it wrong.
4. Noone has my details, because none of my RL friends know I play this game.
5. The dutch server uses the same flash and gives me my gold ._.
6. I'am a wizard! >.<

I allways do 10 hours city guard on my US and Dutch toon the same time (may differ 5sec due to clicking). I cannot make screenshots because when I login I see my timer going from 5 minz to 0 (in 5 minz obviously) and after that: BAM! no gold. This has been going on for 4 days now, thats 60 hours of working time that just vanished into bits and bytes.

How do you expect me to prove something like this? I got no reason to make this crap up because I'am really more mature then that ._. (yes! really!). Just makes me a sad panda to see I got robbed for well over 3k gold.

I feel for your loss, hombre.

Have you tried running the clients at significantly different times? Like an hour apart? Logging out from one when you log into the other? It is a possibility that since they are using 'the same flash' this might be an issue, particularly if the root servers are both located along similar paths (to a home address in Germany?) and you are trying to send similar information along your same ip.

If you have access to an unsecured proxy, you might use that for one of your accounts so the IP is different at the time of the call. Try it on someone else's computer (different IP, preferably) and you can check to see if that might be the issue. Otherwise, instead of posting it in bugs here, PM your IGN and situation to Koops/Leander for investigation.

I doubt this is your problem, but remember that if you click the "cancel" button at any point during your city guard, then you will receive no money for that session. I would suggest that you not watch your city guard go from 5 minutes until 0. Instead, stay on the character tab and wait until the City Guard tab starts to flash. Once you click "ok", you should receive your money. I'm sure you have been doing this, but you never know. (It is kind of like making sure the TV is plugged in before disecting it to figure out why it won't turn on)
