Glad to know it's not a problem on my end.

Rippie to the rescue!
I am the insane sketch of a raven on the blackboard in violet chalk,
The blood on the roses, and the shadow that walks,
I am the Mad Hatter, Drinking tea, Killing time,
I am the voice that you hear in your mind.

Wait a sec, did I miss something? what happened on the rooftop?
What happened to Rip's much vaunted shots and why would Seras switch to another, essentially identical weapon?
Will this be explained in flashback or is something wrong (with my computer/the website)?

On the lack of updates:

Somebody tried to hack the servers, so lots of comics were temporarily down. They're back up now, but none of the updates for the past couple of days have gone through. See the help center for details and breaking news!

Well this is hardly the first time there has been a problem with the updater. And while it may not be a weekly thing but Comic Genesis seems to have this kind of problem fairly often (though I'll admit my perceptions may be off on this). Sorry if this is an unwelcome piece of advice but... have you considered finding a new host for the comic? I realize there may be certain advantages to sticking around here, such as it being easier and having lower costs, but finding another host would probably have its advantages as well.

And uh, I hope all of you kind, caring Admins who may read this realize I mean nothing personal by it. He he... <_< >_> <_< :oops:

ComicGen has actually been pretty good for a while now. And I have yet to find another free host with the same functionality. (But, listen, if you find one, let me know.)

And now they see the disadvantages of experimental weaponry. A crap load of guns these days, and in those days, could be fired underwater, a little sprinkler wouldn't mess with 'em.

Lesson learned? Stick with what works, it worked for a reason.

So their saving grace is Pip can't get the bullets to work.

And we got a cute Rip/Dandy scene.

Awesome.

*read comic* Pip cant fire because his ammo is too damp?
What kind of gun is he trying to shoot then?

I've never heard of ammo being too damp to fire. the primer at the back of the shell casing is a rush charge, it will still go off when crush, no matter if it is or isn't wet.

you can hold any weapon in the rain for a while without a problem. the only time you can expect problems is when you completely submerge a weapon in water.

an example:

The MP5a1, there are two versions of it. a regular and a Navy version. the Difference: the Navy version is slightly modified to let water drain from the firing mechanism while it comes out of the water. it is also made with stronger alloys at the back to cope with the added pressure of water.

If you submerge a regular MP5A1 in water and then take it out to fire it, the back of the weapon will literally explode after 3 to 5 rounds. same thing can happen with a pistol easily unless it is meant to be used in and out of water like the US SOCOM pistol. (Heckler & Koch MK.23)

The reason that a weapon wont fire while fully submerged is because of the fact that water is fifty times denser then air. In short there is not enough power to ignite the crush charge at the back of the round which sets off the powder inside the round.

:o Wow, Tommygunner... The only answer I can come up with is:

- It's Shine.

- It's a deus ex machina.
