The New York Times’ version of Wordle players debuted on Thursday, but it was a shambles, as are most major video game debuts these days. While there have been allegations of a variety of faults, arguably the most egregious was the failure to carry over some victory streaks from the previous Wordle URLs to the Times’ Wordle URL, despite what was promised after the Times announced it had purchased the famous word puzzle from founder Josh Wardle. When we questioned what’s been going on, Times spokesperson Jordan Cohen explained what’s been going on and how it’s been fixed.

The Times discovered a glitch with customers’ current streak information shortly after the introduction on Thursday. “After successfully finishing Thursday’s Wordle following the redirect, these users’ current streak was reset to one,” Cohen stated in an email to The Verge. He added that around 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, the Times implemented a fix. “We validated that this approach is working for users who visited The New York Times’ Wordle players page after the update was announced; that is, their current streak was not reset to one.”

However, that wasn’t the only issue. Cohen explained, “We subsequently redirected our focus to addressing the current streak reset issue for users who visited Wordle between 2:30 p.m. E.T. and 7 p.m. E.T.” “We delivered a remedy later that evening that targeted this group of customers, and we validated that it worked for people in that state. “Users must complete Friday’s Wordle in order to benefit from this patch. It’s also possible that they’ll have to refresh their browser. “

The stats and streaks of the “vast majority” of players should now be carried over.

According to Cohen, the New York Times believes “stats and streaks should have transferred over for the vast majority” of players as of Friday, but “we are seeing some reports of users continuing to experience challenges, and we are investigating and interacting with these individuals.”

Your statistics are stored locally on your devices, according to Cohen, and the Times does not have access to them. Josh Wardle did not store this data, and neither does The New York Times, “he claimed.” “The data is stored locally on the user’s device and is linked to the browser they’re using to play the game and the URL they’re visiting.”

Cohen offered the following advice (emphasis his) if you’re still having trouble with your stats and streaks:

Users must first open the old URL they last used to play Wordle in order to save their stats and streaks. This will take them to the New York Times Wordle players page, where their stats and streaks will be carried over. Users’ stats and streaks will be lost if they go straight to The New York Times Wordle players page without being redirected.

The following are the first steps to take if you aren’t seeing the stats and streaks you expect:

Make sure you’re playing Wordle on the same device and browser you usually do.

You’ll be redirected if you go back to the original URL you used to play Wordle.

There are a couple of other issues that users have encountered. After being redirected to the Times’ Wordle players page, some Wordle players users reported being trapped on a blank page, and the Times has emailed people who emailed nytgames@nytimes.com with troubleshooting advice. Cohen stated, “We are seeing good outcomes.”

A repeat puzzle has been seen by some users.

He also mentioned that some Wordle players gamers may see the same puzzle again on Friday after they’ve previously solved it. According to Cohen, solving the same puzzle again won’t “significantly alter [users’] streaks,” but it can give you an extra “solution” for free.

If you’re still having issues, you should contact the New York Times directly. It appears to be serious about resolving the issues-after all, there’s nothing quite like threatening emails from irritated word puzzle gamers.

The launch will not allow you to edit multiplayer maps or play Halo Infinite in co-op

The launch will not allow you to edit multiplayer maps or play Halo Infinite in co-op techydeed.com

These will be added to the game over time.

Halo Infinite will be released this holiday season. However, at launch, you won’t have the ability to play campaign mode with your friends or edit multiplayer levels using Forge mode. Developer 343 Industries announced Friday.

“When we looked at these experiences — campaign coop and Forge – we made the determination [that] that they’re just simply not ready,” Joseph Staten (head of creative on Halo Infinite) said in a video. “So campaign co-op will be kept in the oven for a bit longer. We’ll release them next year as part of our season roadmap when they’re complete.

CAMPAIGN CO-OP IS TARGETED FOR SEASON TWO, WHILE FORGE IS SET FOR SEASON THREE

Staten stated that 343 Industries plans to ship campaign co-op and Forge in the second season. Staten stated that 343 Industries aims to ship a new season approximately every three months. This means that campaign co-op will likely arrive around three months after launch, while Forge will arrive six months later.

Halo’s campaign cooperative and Forge mode are two hallmarks of the series, so fans may be disappointed to learn that they won’t be available at launch. However, 343 remains committed to launching the campaign this holiday season and season one multiplayer.

Staten said, “We’ll soon be discussing our actual release date.” Xbox is hosting an event in just a few days on August 24th, so perhaps Microsoft and 343 Industries will reveal the date there.

HALO INFINITE HAS HAD A BIT OF ROCKY HISTORY

The latest delays in campaign co-op, Forge and Forge are all part of Halo Infinite’s recent history. The original release date for the game was 2020. However, it was delayed to 2021 after a campaign that revealed the origins of the Craig meme. Staten, who was involved in the initial three Halo games, was brought on board soon after.

Despite its slow development, however, the recent multiplayer technical preview was very positive. This could suggest that the game will live to fans’ expectations when it finally releases this holiday season. You’ll need to wait for the game to be released to play it with your friends or modify it in Forge mode.
