Me: Hi Ben, soon my number of cases solved will reach 10000, so I was wondering is there a limit or will it reach a certain limit before the counter goes back to zero?

Ben: Hah! Not to worry Joseph, most of those numbers use signed integer fields in the database. max value is 2147483647.

Me: Hi Ben, are you in charge of giving out the prizes for special showdowns?

Ben: Hi Joseph,

You'll have to ask Secret Squirrel about Showdown Schedule. He's running those.

Me: Hi Ben, previously when I started playing this game, I noticed that we have more inventory space, but now its lesser. Are you having other things in mind regarding this?

Ben: Yeah, essentially an item that increases your available inventory space.

Me: Hi Ben, I encounter a bug that prevent me to pick up skeleton key, can you look into it?

Ben: Hi Joseph,

Sorry about this. The bug is fixed now.

Me: Hi Ben, I noticed the way you determined the killer in a case is too straight-forward and most of the time, fake alibi suspects who is not the killer will not match any evidence. Is there a way for you to fix it?

Ben: Before the recent changes, a fake alibi innocent would never have any evidence against them, so naturally there was no way that somebody with evidence against them and no alibi could die (because the killer never dies).

Me: Hi Ben, I have level 2 thread analysis skill and wearing both my coat and a gear gives me +2 thread analysis, but the skills toolbar doesn't show my current skill level correctly, could you fix it?

Ben: FYI,

The Skills toolbar window at the top of the case page should now be properly taking item bonus into consideration, even in cases where that pushes your skill level over the trainable max.

For example, it will correctly show you having 4 thread analysis boxes available if your items get you that high.

Me: Hi Ben, since I'm over 20M exp and the listed exp achievement after 5M is 10M, will I get 2 more achievement prizes?

Ben: No prize for 10M, only 20M. We've tweaked the durability for the 5M prize so it should last between the 2, but it's too late for your wristwatch I suppose.

We'll also assume that we'll be giving prizes at 50M and 100M.

Me: lol...yeah, I sold my wristwatch right before you replied to me.

Actually what is wrong with your Bank President? Did it get locked after you failed a favor for Bank President?

What's your current standings with the locksmith? If you have the locksmith at 40, did you try asking locksmith regarding the photo again? If you tried that, did you try doing favors for Bank President or does the favor never appear as option?

If you've tried it all, then perhaps Ben should do something about your Bank President.
