Developer response from delosford

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.

Yeah... it's been fixed for a while. I maintain the server myself, by the way.

Under rating threshold (show) Sometimes your mouse might be buggy and (despite clicking only once) the mouse itself will double click stuff. I have a half-broken mouse and I either have to click doubly hard for it to work or it will be hyper-sensitive and double-click everything. Maybe your mouse is the problem?

Developer response from delosford

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. So even if you somehow manage to convince yourself that everything else I've ever said is a delusion: I think you're going to have a hard time explaining those things away.

Under rating threshold (show) Actually Delos, I have gotten the same message a few times when I have pressed "argue for" too. Just reload and the problem is solved; no big deal; Rorschach is not slandering the game.

Developer response from delosford

No, that doesn't actually happen unless you're trying to do something you shouldn't, such as play abilities when you don't have energy by multi-clicking buttons or hitting back.

Under rating threshold (show) Rorschach007, check to see if you have spare tabs of clout open, I think that will cause that problem. It also could be a virus on your computer that caused it, do a quick scan to see if that is the case with your security thing.

+ - !

Developer response from delosford

You claimed that every time the game is updated, 'this' happens, which was an obvious reference to the database being downed by hackers. That does not actually occur during updates, and since you're talking about updates: you necessarily have been around during an update. Which means you already know the database doesn't go down during updates. Which means you were, in fact, being slanderous with full knowledge of that fact. Or just completely lying out your ass to try and make me look bad.

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.

(-1)

Developer response from delosford

Yeah, I don't really have a choice about that if someone hacks a key or library that the server uses. Or bribes the hosting company. Or does various other things. It'd be really helpful if instead of posting a bunch of snarky and inaccurate comments people actually talked to the FBI about what's going on.

Somebody does something to make the database process shut down and become unable to restart. I don't give anyone else access to the server, which means they're gaining access illegally somehow.

Developer response from delosford

Someone did something to take down the database. I looked into the access logs and it definitely wasn't server or database load that did it. There's effectively 0 load on the server at any given time.

Unless MySQL has a random shutdown bug, which it doesn't, it's someone messing with the game in one way or another. Stalkers are obviously behind it.
