There's A New Facebook Message Center!

Well as facebook is never happy unless they drastically change something every week, this week it's the message center! They combined the inbox and sent messages as well as any message sent from the same user will all show up in one message stream. (Like text messaging on any modern smart phone) And the updates from pages and messages from people "you don't know" will show up under a new "folder" called "other." 

Old Message Center
New Message Center

 They also once again started the facebook email address signup where you can activate a facebook email address (youralias@facebook.com) so people can send you messages directly to your facebook account from a standard email address or cell phone.

Say Goodbye to Your Duplicate Mastery Items!

Well up until today we have been getting a nice boost from a glitch in Zynga's system that was giving a new item each time you mastered the levels in Brazil instead of replacing the mastery item.. so your talking a 1,000 bonus attack and defense points id you've mastered them all in ruby is about to go bye bye..

I currently still have the bonus items but i'm getting reports that they are being removed server by server, so you'll probably just have the correct one by tomorrow and that glitch will be fixed. So until then enjoy your extra power!

Thank you
 Therion DigitaleDunkelheit for bringing this to my attention.

Let's Take Back The Street!

Well like we aren't already swamped by the normal missions for Brazil (65 of them in total) why not throw a mission event on top of it! Sure, why not! At least its something else to do! 

Just remember that after this event ends Bangkok will actually be locked out this time, they decided to extend the access to bangkok because so many people were rushing and trying to finish it, but didn't. So you better hurry if you haven't done that yet!

Stream Helper Tutorial w/ Video!

Stream Helper Beta is a bookmarklet from Spockholm tools that checks your live feed for Mafia Wars Bonuses and Rewards and can automatically collect them or organize them in a list for you to collect on your own. It is an easy to use program once you get the hang of it.

I made this video a while ago and forgot about it, but the bookmark-let hasn't changed much so its still pretty useful, and shows how to go through the whole process, even adding the bookmark-lets to your browser, otherwise just read the tutorial below..

First get the Unframe-MW and the Stream Helper Beta Bookmarklet and then load up mafia wars, Unframe Mafia Wars, close any pop-ups that loaded with the game as they will cause an error then just click Stream Helper Beta. 

You will see a list of options with check boxes for you to set specific options on what to search for and collect. 

If it is your first time running the script then check the box that says "Ask Permission" to authenticate the program in Facebook, it will popup and authentication box that you need to accept to allow it access your live feed. 

The main thing you need to set is the Time in hours, and then leave the Posts/Requests to 100 anything higher will cause the script to timeout and stop running at whatever it has already found. 

Then change the delay interval to a lower amount as its defualt will take too long, my recommendation is 0-3 seconds. 

Select the autostart option and then select all of the items you would like it to find. But I wouldn't check the "Send/Receive Chop Shop/Weapons Depot/Armory parts" or "Send/Receive Vegas/Italy building parts" as it will almost instantly max out your ability to send items to anybody you actually want to after running this.

So after that you can hit scan and it will start the process of searching the live feed, as long as everything is working it will display "Status:Requesting data..." and then give you an update every 100 posts it finds like this "Status: Requesting more data. XXX posts so far. Last timestamp was [TIME]" 

After it finishes the scan if you selected "Autostart" it will run through the process of collecting the items, otherwise you just have to click the play button located in the upper right of the script box. Any of the items that said Manual Collection you have to go collect yourself, but that is as simple as clicking the links provided. 

Hope this Helps! ~Spock On And Happy Gaming~

The Complete Brazil Missions & Boss List! (Mastery Levels Bronze -> Ruby)

Each going in line with completing each mastery in order, all bronze first, then all silver, etc. Until eventually all are mastered Ruby! There are still some bugs being worked out but for the most part it seems to be running smoothly after the first initial bugs were fixed.

Well time to get sending and finish up the event! Just remember to save all of your duplicates so you can replay the event! Make it easy on yourself and remember to collect in game first and then from your Facebook requests to make sure you get all of the free gifts you can!

Enemy Of My Enemy Mission Change!

Well apparently Zynga has seen the error of their ways (thanks to my email, and others i'm sure) and has corrected a large flaw in one of the missions! The one I have been stuck on for 2 days now. Well, time to do it and move on to the next one!

Facebook Security Scam! Watch Out!

There is an email being sent to facebook users that "appears" to look legitimate and has a Facebook support address as the reply. But under closer inspection it is obvious that it isn't really from Facebook. It's warning you that your account will be suspended if you don't respond so they are using a standard scare tactic. It's very similar to an older email that said it looks like your account has been hacked, please go update your info and does pretty much the same thing.

This email wants you to go to a website to verify your facebook username and password. No website, especially facebook would send you an email asking for your credentials. They already know it! Common Sense People... So below is the email being sent and a copy of the page to watch out for.

Here's the email that you'll receive..

Here is the page you will be directed to if you click the link..

Think before you act when you receive an email, especially when the email is trying to scare you into doing something! Chances are it's a scam! And obviously if you can still login to facebook, there really isn't anything to worry about..

Thank you Rose Vrionides- Boubaris for bringing this to my attention.

Where Are The Workshops!?

Well if you were lucky enough to get past the 1st mission glitch, and now get stuck on another one (like quite a few people have) then maybe you have gotten as far as I have.. Only you are now stuck on a mission called Enemy Of My Enemy.

This mission requires you to rob a workshop 6 times. Well that doesn't seem too difficult, right!? Well I spent 2,000+ points of stamina requesting new targets.. And guess what!? Not ONE workshop ever showed up!!!

Just page after page of this..

I was lucky if it even had anything besides headquarters!

This is just ridiculous! I sent an email to zynga about this, they really need to work out these things before releasing them! The players shouldn't be this inconvenienced because of their carelessness! Not to mention I spent 2,000+ stamina for nothing!!

Brazil Missions / Boss Fights FAQ 411
Updated 03/25/2011 at 02:19

User-added image

The Neo-Imperium continues to invade Brazil!  The time is now to stop them once and for all! Set up your operations, complete all of the required tasks and missions to annihilate the competition and take down the 5 Neo-Imperium bosses.
A total of 65 missions filled with tasks and challenges must be completed in order to defeat all 5 Neo-Imperium Bosses. Different missions will need to be completed before the next boss fight is presented. Each boss has 4 levels of mastery (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby). Once a boss is defeated at the Bronze level, they will return to retaliate until they have been defeated at all 4 mastery levels. Defeating a Boss for the first time will award a mastery item. Defeating the same boss at the next mastery level will increase the statistics of the same boss mastery item. 
After all 5 bosses have been defeated at each mastery level (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby), no additional Missions will be prompted and the group of Missions will disappear from the Mission Bar section of the homepage. 
Be advised!!! Each Neo-Imperium will be difficult to defeat as it was designed this way. It is important to bulk up in order to take out each boss and collect each handsome reward. Good Luck!!!

Q:  Why does the required task say “Get Crew Members” I already have crew members!
A:  To successfully complete a task that requires you to “Get Crew Members” you will need to acquire NEW crew members. Existing crew members do not count toward this progress. If you Brazil Crew is already full, assign a crew member to a role position to free up crew positions
Q: I have completed ROBs in Brazil, Why hasn’t the task progress updated?
A: Only successful robs count toward mission progress in Brazil
Q: I have posted/asked for support from my Mafia, Why hasn’t the task progress updated?
A: When you try to get support from your Mafia by posting feeds for mission completion, friends and mafia members will need to click on the post for mission progress to update. Posting for support alone will not result in any mission progress.
Q: Where can I find Wooden Crates?
A: Wooden Crates will be dropped through successful rob across all properties. There is never a guarantee that each successful rob will award a Wooden Crate. Continuously clearing robbing
