Summary MESS-specific 06467: elecdet: Every suspect gives the same alibi.
Description In this game, after you select a suspect to interrogate, the machine gives you his/her alibi. You're supposed to use them to deduce the identity of the killer.

In 0.181, in any given game, every single suspect will give the same alibi, preventing you from solving the crime. Because of this, the game is unplayable.
Steps To Reproduce Wait until ON appears.
Press 1, 1, and then enter to start the game. A tune will play, and the victim number will appear on the screen (followed by a letter).
To interrogate a suspect, press S, then the suspect number (from 1 to 20, excluding the victim), then enter. His alibi (a sequence of letters and digits) will appear on screen. Then press E to end the turn.
Interrogate various suspects, they all give the same alibi.
