Central Mainframe Access Secret Code

As you do jobs and fight, you will have a random chance for this pop-up to appear:



Apparently, players can enter this secret code (blurred for privacy, of course!) in at the Mafia Wars app home page for a special bonus each day.

Many players have not reported seeing a place on the home page to enter the code. There seems to be a refractory period (of about a few hours) between which you get your code and the space appears on the homepage that allows you to edit it. The box to enter the code is big, so once it is available you can't miss it:


Additionally, this bonus is also only meant for one account - if you enter the wrong code into a different account, you won't get a bonus (or worse, who knows), so make sure you keep your accounts straight and do not share your code with friends.

  16. They have changed the wording in the popup now to make it clear that you can only ever get the code once. If you do not write it down, you will never be able to get it again and will be missing out on skill point bonuses forever. The Zynga forums are, unsurprisingly, in meltdown over this. And of all my real life friends who play the game, none of them ended up writing down the code since they thought it would change from day to day. They are casual players, not the types to hang out on strategy blogs or developer forums, they just like to have something to do while eating lunch in the office. They are all very upset that they can't get this bonus.

    While Zynga's intentions might have been good here (to weaken the efficacy of bot accounts,) I don't think they considered how their core of casual players actually play the game and their reactions. Hopefully they will rethink how they do this feature and make the appropriate changes.

  17. Wondering if it is true that all My Space Mafia Wars accounts are now as we speak coming to FB and they are giving us this access code to protect us from what may be coming in regards to hackers etc. I am also hearing that My Space has had Mafia Wars for about 3 years, with levels as high as 8000+.!!!
    The new "Free" Items ,such as F-25, Cia Agent, Turkey Vulture are supposed to given to to help balance power that they already have.THE "CODE" is also supposed to be used for the MAIN reason of also letting My Space accounts transfer and keep all existing items, collections,attack/ defense power. actually everything they have. Watch out for serious attacks probably coming our way. We shall see !!!

  25. this sucks, if the myspace players do come

  26. Is Zynga is down today?

  27. It is true that not only MySpace, but also Tagged.com players are coming to Facebook. Both have been playing for 3 years longer. Hence, all the recent boosts we have had (mainframe, CIA agent, etc.). I don't know how long it will last, but there is already Farmville.com and ZyngaLive.com is in the works, which would have all the games on a separate website from FB. But you would still need your Facebook login to access your game. Zynga and FB are still negotiating the terms and the changes may occur in in 2 monts, 6 monts, or maybe in a couple of years. Things are up in the air. -knuckles k.

  31. Is the mainframe access code still working? I havent seen it for a month now? What has happened to this one - has Zynga stopped giving freebies?
