Do you mean that they are not in the order you would reach the locations when playing the game (for instance if it was a platform game, you would have screenshots from level 3 then level 1)?

If so, could you do a full refresh of your browser first (Ctrl+F5) please.
There was some activity recently on this entry (perhaps thanks to contributions from you), so perhaps it created interferences.


I will PM the person who modified the entry recently in case he does not see this thread. He will probably be the one to better know what could have happened.

Thanks for reporting the problem! Yes, some thumbnails are broken when you click on them and others show the wrong screenshot. It's an old bug in HOL that occurs sometimes when we rearrange screenshots. RCK isn't sure why this happens and has had trouble tracking down the bug since it doesn't occur every time we rearrange screenshots. I'll let him know that the problem has reared its ugly head again and we'll see what can be done about it.

Was the reason investigated?

I can report something that could be of interest.

The entry works fine with FF 3.6.25.
I clicked everything thumbnails without issue.

To double check I started IE9. And there I saw the problem. Clicking on thumbnail 4 show an empty image box (red X).
From thumbnail 5 on, clicking on thumbnail n shows the full picture that should be showned when clicking on thumbnail n-1.


Ofc, I did a hard refresh for both browsers

That's the frustrating part - the problem cannot be reliably reproduced at RCK's end, so there's not a lot he can do. Sometimes the occurrence of this bug with a particular HOL entry seems to just go away by itself for those who do experience it.

I can confirm that the problem Predseda describes for the Lost in Parrot Island entry occurs for me here also with Firefox 7.x at home and Firefox 10.x on my PC at work (regardless of manually clearing the browser cache and reloading the webpage). I haven't tried any other browsers so far, but I'd be surprised if the bug didn't occur for some people using other browsers (as it did for you with IE9).

Bug is still valid. Look at Napalm or Capital Punishment.

I have never got very far in this game. Has anyone actually completed it? HOL seems to have screenshots from all locations. So someone must have played it through.

HOL bugfix and screenshot rebuild have been performed, it should be okay now
