Hi,

that information is a little thin.
The API is known to include corrupt kills now and then. Not being able to find ANY of these kills at zKillboard supports that assumption (except if neither the party who laid the final blow nor ANY of the victims have API keys listed at zKillboard).
Could you please provide the xml file from the API cache for the key with ID 3826234? You can find it in cache/api/3826234/<vcode>/corp/KillMails/Request_characterID-<someNumber>.xml .
That way we can verify whether the API output is borked or there's really a bug.

Regards,
Salvoxia

Hi,

thanks for the XML file.
It looks like the killboard works as intended.
Example: This line i describing the one and only attacker on kill 43951687:

Code: Select all

<row characterID="0" characterName="" corporationID="0" corporationName="" allianceID="0" allianceName="" factionID="0" factionName="" securityStatus="0" damageDone="0" finalBlow="1" weaponTypeID="0" shipTypeID="0" />
Easy to spot: No IDs, no names whatsoever. That's too little information for the killboard to work with.

I have one idea left, though: Did you guys engage Circadian Seekers? I haven't seen any losses to them yet, but I think it's possible that's how the API handles losses to these Sleeper Drones right now. Can you check ingame if "Core Construction" had some losses to Circadian Seekers?
It would be VERY helpful if you could find out anything about the loss for the Character "thomas Boor" from Core Construction on 2015-01-17 22:59:00.

Regards,
Salvoxia

To be honest, that looks bugged like hell to me.
I suggest to write an ingame bug report.
At least the ingame kill report shows two attackers, but you can't read any more into it than "he was killed by SOMETHING"...

One last thing you can try is copying the text killmail. The attackers seem to be named, but I'm afraid I can't read cyrillic script ;)

Yeah, seems it's completely broken.
As I said, I recommend filing an ingame bug report, that's a problem on CCP's end.
However, this is NOT the first time such problems have occurred: viewtopic.php?f=504&t=21738
It made it on CCP FoxFour's backlog, but I don't think anything has happend as of yet.
