Pingy the Ping Idle RPG - Hints 'n Tips

DONT FORGET TO SCROLL DOWN !

The basic idea of the game is to let it idle all the time , and when you are active you get rewarded for playing it .

So plz post hints ’n tips here and make the lists as good as possible ,
and a “walkthrou” would also be nice =)

The DEVELOPERS has made this thread ( So post your suggestions and so there plz ) :
http://www.kongregate.com/forums/3-general-gaming/topics/198620-pingy-the-ping-idle-rpg-suggestions

SPOILER ALERT ! For the posts here . ( posts gets edited to collect good info on page 1 , but other posts also have nice info you need )
( The game might change often , so the lists is not 100% correct )

VERY IMPORTANT ! VERY IMPORTANT ! VERY IMPORTANT !

Your computer settings matter !

Developer response from saybox : ( I’ve combined different posts )
“Hi! Sorry you lost your save.

The save file is stored on your own PC, and deleting cookies, running CCleaner, or using addons like BetterPrivacy will delete it.

If you have your browser set to clear cookies on exit, or if you delete them yourself, your savegame will be deleted with them.

Some browser addons like BetterPrivacy also delete cookies for you, and so do cleanup programs like CCleaner.

If your browser crashes during the autosave it might also delete the file
(with Chrome some people have said restarting their PC recovered it, but that won’t work if you’ve already saved over it).

I dont’ recommend using Google Chrome, because it doesn’t handle flash saves very well, but whatever browser you use, you should definitely back up your saved game.

You also need to make sure Flash is set to accept game saves at all, by going to “Settings” in the right click menu, picking the middle option, and putting the slider all the way to the right. The space you allow there is for EVERY GAME on Kongregate to use, so its best to put it to “unlimited” (that also fixes lag in games that save a lot)."

Changeing the internet browser you use might reset the flashplayer info stored on your computer !

An guide to “how to” save/backup your game progress :
http://www.kongregate.com/forums/3-general-gaming/topics/213198-pingy-the-ping-idle-rpg-hints-n-tips?page=2#posts-4628526

And set kongregate as an thrusted site should also help .

I copy/save the chat.kongregate.com Folder as a backup ( i have Vista ) :
C:\Users\ (your username) \AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\ (random letters and numbers) \chat.kongregate.com\gamez\0012\6674\live\pingy2.swf
( That folder has most(/all) of the other games on Kongregate too )

Here’s a link to the main thread, the title needs to be changed from Idle game in the making – suggestions?. It has a complete walk through already.

ive been playing pingy for a day or so now, almost lvl 60 and i think ive got some good advice and tips on earning big combos for some things.

1. House – Every thing in the house gives you +1 xp per fast bar, and also increases how much money you get on level up. Get as much of this as soon as you can get it. it will really help you level and get money early on.

2.Hat Shop – Always buy hats as soon as you can. The first six you get will each reduce the fastbar time. Once you get the first six hats, your fastbar will fill up every 3.11 seconds. After the first six, each hat will only give you +1 money per fastbar.

3. Movies – Don’t bother buying this until your level 25, unless you wanna watch utube videos of pingys. Plus its kinda glitchy from what I can tell. Once at level 25 and you buy the mouse ear’s hat THEN buy this and you can get a key, which is used in the skool.

4. Bank – Buy this either first or after the fishing area+market. The trick is to deposit all of your money right after you click the collect interest. I have about 600,000 in there and making about 11,000 every 3-5 min. Now that’s some good money.

5. Fishing – There’s really not much to say about fishing, except that once your farming whales, buy goldfish bait. But be careful, if you log out or quit all the bait you bought will be gone, just like fish and burgers. Also do not sell your goldfish or snails unless you have to quit the game. You can save these and use them later to make more money.

6. Market – This one is a bit tricky. The higher level you are, the more your fish can sell for. You can find a complete list, based on what level you are here http://www.monsieur-t.fr/pingy/ this is a really good tool and i use it all the time. Just imput your level and how many hats, and go over to the fishing tab and you can see how much each fish can sell up too, along with a median price.

7. Casino – Personally I wouldn’t bother with this one until you have allot of money. There’s no skill here everything just takes a ridiculous amount of time and of course money. However the easiest one to win money on is the “21” game. you can cash out on hands of 17-21 i believe and make a profit.

8. Whale Farm – Best thing to do here is buy all the pools, get the goldfish bait, fish out alot of goldfish, put them in the pools and wait till there done. Later in the game when you dont care about money so much you can use burgers to speed up the process, but only do that once you get the quest “Farmville 4” where you have to farm 1,000 whales.

9. Whack-A-Seal – This game can get really annoying really quickly. The best trick here is to constantly click your mouse (hope you can click fast) Then all you have to do is roll your mouse over the seal. The fist seal will give you 2xp, the second 4, 6,8 ect. If you can get good combos here you can get some good xp. also after you get 5 seals, you start getting 2$ for every seal. from what I’ve seen, that number doesn’t go up no matter how high your combo.

10. Catch a Snail – This is the best place to get massive amounts of snails to make lots and lots of burgers. However to complete the last snail combo quest, you need to get 50 in a row. Now this can be very hard, however there are a few tricks, and remember if at fist you don’t succeed, try try try try try again. The bucket has a weird “hit box” you can still catch a snail even if its JUST outside the brim of the bucket. Try it out for your self so you get a feel of where that box is. also the snail can be just under the bottom lip of the bucket and still get in. Use those tips to your advantage and practice with it. It might take you 500 tries to get a 50 combo, but at least you’ll be a winner!

11. Skool – For you to get good combo’s at skool you kinda need to be smart. However there’s two ways of being smart. One you can be a math genius like me, and do all these problems in your head in about 4 seconds. Or you can be smart like ANYONE can by getting a piece of paper, and making a table for your multiplications. Also take advantage of a few math short-cuts I’ve learned. You have a math problem of 14×9. Sounds hard, but its really not. take away the 4 in 14 for a moment and look at it now...10×9, well that’s easy! 90, ok now bring JUST that 4 back..4×9..so you might need to look over at your times table you made earlier for this, but you’ll find is 36…now add them together 90+36 = 126…you just solved that problem easy. May take some practice to get it.

12. Burger Ping – Really not much to say except that it makes burgers at the cost of 5 snails. Sell the burgers for more then 30/35 if your trying to make money.

13. Target Range – Use the same tactic from the whack a seal here.

14. ??? haven’t gotten here yet

15. ??? haven’t gotten here yet

I went from getting 10$ to 37$ every time my fastbar filled up, i don’t know how or why but its the same amount as my exp, is this glitch or is it like a prize you can get?

EDIT: I refreshed and its still giving me 37$ any way to fix this?

thanks and i left a shout on his page. i restarted my browser and its still doing it. i feel so dirty cheating because im just storing it all in my bank. and it still isn’t fixed even when i buy stuff for my house.

I really hope i don’t get banned lol

its just a bug, i wouldn’t worry about it too much.

 
Flag Post

I don’t think it’s a bug.. I’m now earning 56 every fastbar fill so I suppose it’s changed… though… I don’t really care about it… in half an hour I’ll have hit the 50 million mark in my bank account and be earning 1 million interest every 5 minutes… whoop-tee-doo >.> also the Pool is just the trapped pingy… you need to press left and right on the keyboard a ton (about 30 minutes straight) to free him -- one last thing…. the final high/low combo is most certainly impossible without some hack or cheat.. it’s 50 .…. it took me well over 1000 tries just to get the 20 one… but 50!?!

how do you get that higher levels in such a short time?

i just refreshed my game page, and yea your right, im getting 43….daaaaaam

I’m only level 61 and I’ve been playing since day one… so… ask him >.>…. buuut I did just have a good idea for snail catching – normally you earn only one exp per snail… however I think every ten in the combo should earn one extra… 10-19 = 2exp , 20-29 = 3exp, etc…. sure it’s not that big of a difference but it would help us to level, especially when we have to catch so many snails!

how do i level up fast

 
Flag Post

My understanding is that you need to wiggle the trapped ping 25,000 times to free him. Any clue as to what happens at the pool once he’s free? I’m hoping he’ll turn into the emperor but for now he just sits there, saying nothing, staring at me as though he’d like to use my pool if only I actually had one.

A tip for whack-a-seal game.You can click same seal more times and it will count as much times you clicked.If you click same seal 2 times the game will count that you clicked 2 seals.Use that if you want to make a good combo.

This doesn’t work for me, So It’s either our pc’s being different or brower? (Which I doubt) I use google chrome anyways
