Under rating threshold (show) well, I'm not blocked now, but 6 hours ago, after you said "I fixed the problem for you! Check the Announcements!", I still had trouble in an area where kong is blocked. It's not a huge issue, but if it were fixed, it would be nice. I understand you're trying pretty hard and again, it's not a big deal.

Under rating threshold (show) I figured the cloutserver was intentional, and am now permanently playing on Kong. I really like the game and am not trying to sabotage it. I just want to be able to play clout at work.

The game works and people have to give me credit for it now. I fail to see the problem.

Under rating threshold (show) zbarancik1, I really advise that you play the game as it's intended to be played. The dev has been stalked recently, and trying to do something weird with the game is going to convince the dev that you're up to no good.

Under rating threshold (show) anyway, to get back to my original complaint, It now must be in an unblocked area, whereas before, if you already had the tab open in either this "cloutserver" or Kong, it would work. Please, if you can, help.

Under rating threshold (show) when you play clout on Kong and click the address bar, you can go to this url or something like this. It appears to be real, as the chats, bills and everything appear to be identical. Here's my url:https://cloutserver.net/clout/clout.php?fb_sig_user=-17138063&fb_sig_session_key=89ed95b816ef7d0831d1e3dc0c5f160b7c4f3a098a0f7f1975b064bc4ce9d380&action=status

You do realize that posting your session key allows people to hack your account, right? I'd delete that comment and log out/in of Kongregate if I were you.

What exactly are you doing to circumvent Kongregate? I think a lot of people are or were doing that and you probably weren't connecting to the actual game.

Under rating threshold (show) Actually, I wasn't playing on kong. Oops.I was playing on the screen that appears when you open up clout in a new tab, which bypasses kongregate and is a long address with the word "cloutserver" in it. Anyway, my complaint still appears to be valid.

So you're circumventing Kongregate and complaining that Kongregate isn't working? I guess that's a thing you can do.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't get it, is the game down right now or something? when I go to the game, a screen comes up saying I lost an election with the choice to either retire or become a Lobbyist, when I click "become a lobbyist" it sends me right out to the Kongregate homepage. What am I doing wrong here? I think I might be even dumber than Sallier.

Developer response from delosford

Nah. You just cant actually get to The Lobby right now unless you're a member of the playtesting group. If you'd like, I can have Kongregate add your name to the list. But you'll have to hold off on rerolling for now. It'll take a day or two for them to add you most likely.

Under rating threshold (show) Sallier162, choose what you want. Your party affects what bills you can support/oppose without your constituents (your voters, the people who decide whether you get to stay in office at the end of the month) starting to doubt you. Traits affect your stats and abilities. Just choose what you want and you should be okay, nobody gets their character perfectly right the first time

Developer response from delosford

Usually you have to play a game before you determine those things. Perhaps promotional advertisements could give you a skewed and overly-rosy picture of the gameplay, but I prefer to let the game speak for itself. I apologize profusely that the game does not psychically communicate instructions to you. Perhaps I could add graphics that way at a later date.

If you're confused by the extremely clear and well-described character creation screen, it's likely that you completely lack the required mental capacity to even play the game.

Under rating threshold (show) So after coming back from being banned 4 months ago, it seems that your life is even more crazy than before. It would certainly be a good plot for a movie. You think the church of Scientology is after you and that any incompetence on your part is just stalkers.Plus the anger you display to the few people who can still play the game, is just hilarious. For an example I click on "argue for" and it tells me hacking the game is bad. ...What? DEVELOPER RESPONSE FROM DELOSFORD This doesn't actually happen. I guess I could ban you for slandering the game, but I doubt you even have an account. ...here's some more Every time Delos put updates, this happen DEVELOPER RESPONSE FROM DELOSFORD I actually post updates to the live game, which everyone knows if they've been around long enough. Which means you're slandering me and the game and thus will be banned. Defensive much? Bug reports and jokes are now bannable. This is just a buyer beware for anyone who could still want to play this game.

+ - !

(12)

Developer response from delosford

This is quite possibly the most retardedly inaccurate comment anyone has ever posted on my game. Though you do have some stiff competition in the past. Which is comprised of more comments than you'd care to read. Which is clearly because nobody plays the game at all.

Under rating threshold (show) This is truly the best simulation game on Kongregate. I always admired congressmen and their jobs. This game, not only shows us the struggle of making people give away their hard earned cash so you can buy your much needed daily 1000$ worth of cigarettes and alcohol. The struggle of saving squirrels while some weird stalkers that call themselves "Rightful citizens of the United States of America", or something, follow you around shouting right in your ear "OUR CHILDREN ARE STARVING"; "THE TERRORISTS ARE KILLING US"; "NICE TIE BRO!"...damn assholes...Anyway, like I was saying, not only it shows the struggle, but thanks to delosford, the creator of this amazing simulator, we can put ourselves into the skin of a congressman and see for ourselves how it is to deceive the masses and even put people into slavery. 5/5

Clout is a simulation game, and as such there is no magical way to regain health instantly. You heal over time, just like in real life.

Well, money disappears from my bank account, the accounting for all my accounts is completely screwed up from years back, and I apparently have a bank account with US Bank that I never knew existed.
