DougL07, if you could provide me with your operating system (windows xp/2000, vista, 7) and your web browser of choice (firefox, IE8, Chrome..) I’d be happy to help

I thought i’d post this here to show people how to properly back up their save files to prevent any loss of pingy. I’ve checked Kongregate’s solution to the problem but it isn’t as extensive as I had hoped so here it goes.

Mozzila Firefox
1. Locate your profile folder:
-Windows 7 and Vista: Click the windows start button, and type (percent) APPDATA (percent) \Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ in the search box at bottom of the Start menu, without pressing Enter. A list of profiles will appear at the top of the Start menu. You can click on any of the profiles (e.g. xxxxxxxx.default) to open it with Windows Explorer. Where “xxxxxxxx” can be any random string of letters and numbers.
-Windows XP and 2000: Click the windows start button and press run. Type in (percent) APPDATA (percent) \Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ then click OK.
2. Backing up your profile:
– To back up your profile, first close Firefox if it is open and then copy the entire profile folder to another location (for example: Desktop).
3. Restoring your profile:
– Simply take your backed up profile and replace it with the current profile folder (xxxxxxxx.default). NOTE The profile folder names must match exactly for this to work, including the random string of 8 characters. If they are not, you must create a new profile and paste the contents of your backed up file there.

Google Chrome
1. Locate your profile folder:
– Windows 7 or Vista: Click the windows start button and type C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local (remember to replace “Username” with your own name). Locate the file entitled “Google”.
– Windows XP: Click the windows start button and type (percent) appdata (percent). Locate folder entitled “Google”.
2. Backing up your profile:
– Select the Google Folder and copy (but not cut) the entire thing to another location.
3. Restoring your profile:
– Simply take your backed up Google folder and replace it with the one currently in your Local directory.

Secrets :

Secret cave – left of Pingy under credits tab .

In secret cave – move your mouse crusor over the icecream ALOT of times to eat it so you get the sombrero hat .

Key to the chest in skool – In the Movie tab , press the white opening text an drag up to see an small door ,
click that door to find the key ( you need to be lvl 25 and buy ’n use the mouse hat ) .
________
Misc :

Target range " how to " idea :
Make sure the game has as much as possible to work with while you try to hit the targets ,
Have enought/alot snails so you can cook alot of burgers ,
Have some gold fishes so you can farm 4 of them at the same time ,
Should give you close to 10 min to hit targets ,
Then in Target range you should try to hit the first target that pop up all the time ,
This seems to give you abit more time to hit the targets when they first pop up after an hit =)
( And have another game run too if needed , like GemCraft Labyrinth )

Plz let others know if this workes for you ! ( Spesially Laptop users )

( Might also work for the snails , if your lucky and the bucket does’nt hang up =P )

be more speciaffic with the secret cave, add a picture with a cursor over the area

6. upper right corner of the screen of the hat shop (next to the orange and blue exp bars)
7,8. 2 from the bank at his desk (one on top and one on the lower left)

10. top of the chalkboard of the market list, it’s a stem that’s poking out
11,12,13. casino games, high low (on the table, i think above the box that rolls the number and below “combo: x earned: xx”), twenty one (below the table between hit and cashout), and another game that has a table on the screen on the bottom of the table, it was either dice game or double or nothing
14,15. secret cave at the bottom of the credits screen, in the lower right concept art, open it up and collect the pumpkin, and behind ‘the elite’ list (move it up and down like you would the fishing basket)

in the secret cave, in one of the artwork pages i believe. 1 in the top right corner above your level.

There was one in the top-right corner, possibly on the achievements page, i cant remember… Hiding up behind the fastbar and half-hour bonus meter.

In the casino, one’s in the 21 game, hiding behind the ‘hit’ button, another is behind the table leg in ‘Double Or Nothing’, IIRC.

To the right of the game window , you can read this :
How do I get VIP?
VIP is free for awesome people. Suggest a feature that makes it into the game, help people out in the comments, post about the game on the forums, or just generally be cool, and we might upgrade you to VIP.
