[09:30] brow42 Mutate Tweak Worst v 0.1 Shared
[09:31] brow42 Watch the scoreboard change!

[10:42] brow42 waiiit... it's up to 148...but there are only 101 mutables!
[10:43] rav3npl IMAGE: http://fold.it/portal/files/chatimg/irc_174969_1333932191.png
[10:43] rav3n_pl #231 also changed to gly on my solution
[10:43] spmm ravs script finds 107 mutables
[10:45] brow42 Mine is saying 215
[10:46] rav3n_pl targets table filler
[10:46] brow42 but...rav's script just does trial mutations to find mutables...so it should find these as mutable since they mutate
[10:47] rav3n_pl NO
[10:47] rav3n_pl i see bug!
[10:47] rav3n_pl structure.SetAminoAcod is bugged!
[10:48] rav3n_pl I`m using "setAminoAcidSELECTED" and locked can not be selected
[10:48] rav3n_pl brow is using setAminoAcid(number,type)
[10:48] rav3n_pl and it is Bugged
[10:48] rav3n_pl brow, unshare your recipe
brow42 it's not that function that's bug, it's the puzzle
[10:51] brow42 IsMutable() returns true for all those segments

slightly edited

dang! I can't believe this bug emerges 10 hours before the puzzle closes... and on the weekend, of course!

I don't really know what we can do about this now (assigning points-wise, we will obviously ignore those solutions since that is indeed a bug) because we could close the puzzle with 0 points and repost it with the bug fix & let everyone load in their valid previous solutions, but it's not very fair for anyone that played last week and is away from the game this week and doesn't get a chance to load their solutions.

we're really sorry about this, it would be easier to handle if this bug had showed up earlier in the week!

the previous CO2 has the same puzzle problem as well, so may be invalid solutions there as well, but the current flu puzzle is ok rav checked both.

Unfortunately lots of people jumped on with the tricky script, also people may have been able to mutate locked using other scripts even though most of the solutions will be clean.

Indeed, looking into the problem: this bug is only with the CO2 puzzles.

Thanks for also letting us know about Puzzle 529, spmm. We will make sure to double-check the previous CO2 puzzle solutions as well (and make sure this doesn't happen again with this series of CO2 puzzles!).
