Under rating threshold (show) Can you fix this? When my hose teams are at the top of the screen I cant tell them to cut the hose or go back.

Developer response from jasonredhawk

It's something that I fixed a while back, however I haven't updated the Kong website with the latest Android/iOS version, which is currently at 1.4.6. A bit hard to maintain so many versions for different platforms. I'm in the middle of building a multiplayer coop version of FireJumpers and we're always looking for alpha testers. Check out our facebook page at http://facebook.com/FireJumpers/ for more details. Currently only looking for Android alpha testers.

Under rating threshold (show) Has any one else noticed that on the hose units sometimes the hose line is really short and others is a good usable length? Also RedHawk have you thought about adding levels where you can edit your team? honestly I have noticed a few levels where some units where of no use or just a hindrance.

+ - !

(3)

Developer response from jasonredhawk

the length of the hose is mostly consistent, but if you swipe you mouse really fast, you can extend the hose length slightly (hack). I'd love to incorporate a team building stage before loading the map, to select which units you'd like to use, however all these maps are balanced to score 1-3stars based on the units preselected. If users can select their own, then I'd need a new way to calculate score. I thought perhaps introducing virtual dollars to pay for different units, but that's a whole lot of programming! Upgradable units is something else I'd like to add in the future. However, before any of that, I'm looking to add new units, Bulldozers, improved waterbomber (maybe a fire-retardant bomber), water refill trucks, 4x4 ATVs and fire boats. Maybe if you get 3 stars, open the level up to place your own fire and wind direction for replayability. I get to put about an hour or two a day on this game after my day job, so it's going to take a while :) Thanks for your feedback!

hold SHIFT while drawing the helicopter's linePath to auto-drop the ground crew. The helicopter doesn't pick up water in the pro version.. at least not yet.

Under rating threshold (show) Hi Jason Still on the pro game. Managed to create a fire and worked it with the scoopers. Never get the chopper to load water. And encountered a couple bugs. Hard to get hold of the planes once they left the screen. At some point both planes left and my pointer get stuck in "W" cross-air mode. Could not not anything.

+ - !

Developer response from jasonredhawk

Thanks for finding that bug, I'll put that on my bug squashing list. Once they leave the screen, there's a small tab showing their entry location. On the unit's panel, you'll see a counter, like 2:00 or something. If you click on that counter, it'll start the count-down before the plane will return with water. If you click the counter a second time, it'll return the plane immediately. This functionality is designed to handle off screen pickup times.

Under rating threshold (show) Jason, you should talk your client into releasing the pro version as a Social Network tool. Use it for awareness, found raising, whatever. The casual gaming version is great, the hard core version would be a blast too.

Developer response from jasonredhawk

Would love to build a Social Network around this game, it's actually phase 3 in our master plan to take over the world! To use it as a educational game, bring awareness to kids on wildland firefighting. One day, I'm hoping I can take FireJumpers from hobby to working on it full time.

Under rating threshold (show) Hi Jason. Looks great! full screen, planes path like in "flight control" But I can't scoop or drop and there's no fire. normal ? It can be played in multiplayer ?

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from jasonredhawk

Thanks, Pro version is more a training tool than a game. As for the fire, in step 2, you need to draw your own fire. There's a button you need to toggle to be able to draw the fire. As for the bombers scooping water, all you need to do is draw your path over deep water, the bomber will auto-scoop the water. You'll see a series of increasingly larger circles showing the scoop percentage to fill up. Once full of water, you can then draw a line over the fire. At this point, you'll see 3 bright circles showing the "dropzone" for the water drop. You'll also notice a number of dim circles which shows other potential dropzones. You can update the location of the dropzone by clicking on the actual linepath. A bit more complicated than the game, but makes sense once you get use to it! :)

Under rating threshold (show) I think it's pretty funny that you can walk on water.

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from jasonredhawk

lol, sorta. The light blue water is shallow water, so I'm thinking you are still touching the bottom. However the deep water (dark blue) is different, ground units' speed on deep water is I think 0.5% of original speed. Basically, you are swimming with a big chainsaw on your back. Given enough time, you can cross deep water, but that's why you have a helicopter to transport units :)

hose teams need to connect to the shallow waters or firehydrants. Shallow water is the light blue water. The dark blue water is for helicopter water scooping. :)

Under rating threshold (show) Hi Jason Thanks for the response. you R right chain order will require code rehaul and may unbalance the gameplay. not worth the trouble. A couple more bugs: - In Chrome, when opening a map, the game is sometimes not responsive, not even showing the landscape, only the plane icon. I have to open a secondary tab and (alt-T) close it. Then the game is in Pause mode and I can start it. seems to be a "Focus" issue. - just arrived at the Orlando map and its shown as 3-star completed, and all the following one too. - Sometimes it;s hard to see remaining chards under a hose unit and you move it away before the fire is totally off. Should be able to see when a hose unit is /is not on a fire Great Game. Took a while to really adopt it, but it worth it !

Under rating threshold (show) Hello. Good game, deserves fine tuning to get to the very good game level ! I have an issue with units sent to maps' top edge or bottom corners. There's not way to control them, cause the orders buttons are out of reach, or the unit is under a game control (speed of menu) Bugged me in Central Park and 4th of July. Another GREAT improvement would be to "chain" orders to chopper (pick unit, drop there, pick water, drop here...) like in restaurant-waiter games. Hose units should be able to roll back to previous "nodes" BTW is there a way to have hose units work as cutters ? Anyway: Good Job !

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from jasonredhawk

yes, the unit menu isn't perfect, it's on the list of todos, just such a large list at the moment. Chain orders is a great idea, just not sure how to implement it into the game without over complicating things. It's already quite complicated as you know :) Hose team can reverse, to stop any unit, just click on it. That'll stop any action in place. Units can't swap their tools, hose team has to carry a lot, and aren't likely to also carry chainsaws too. Besides, it's more challenging with limited units. Thanks for the great comments. Will look into chain commands, but I'm not sure how to simply make that work.

I had taken it down a few months ago due to a weird bug where after a successful level, it wouldn't unlock the next level. However, this weekend (Sep6-8th), I'm adding it to the US App Store as a request by another user. If you're in the US also, this is the time as I'm removing it again on Sunday night. As an Easter Egg, you can unlock all levels by clicking on the version # at the top left on the splash screen.

Developer response from jasonredhawk

Tout d'abord, transport de l'équipe coupe avec l'hélicoptère à l'angle sud-ouest de l'incendie, à proximité de la population civile et les arbres denses. Vous avez l'équipe de coupe coupé le long de cette longue zone d'herbe mince juste au-dessus des arbres denses vers le nord jusqu'à la route, beaucoup plus rapide coupe l'herbe de buissons ou des arbres. Ensuite, utilisez l'hélicoptère soit bombe d'eau de la partie nord de l'incendie ou de sauver les civils dans cette même zone. Alors l'hélicoptère ramasser l'équipe de tuyau et le transporter vers le sud de l'incendie, à contenir l'incendie d'aller plus loin au sud. À ce stade, le feu devrait être contenue assez pour lutter contre les incendies sur place. Rappelez-vous, arbres denses prennent plus de temps à brûler, et il est difficile d'éteindre avec de l'eau. Essayez d'utiliser votre hélicoptère à l'herbe à la bombe de l'eau ou des buissons, mais il faut éviter les arbres que c'est seulement 50% efficace.

Developer response from jasonredhawk

Hawaii is a tough one, it introduces the concept of using terrain to your advantage. Have the helicopter transport in the ground units to contain the top and bottom fires, pushing the head of the fire between the two rivers. The bomber timer should complete just as the fire reaches the narrowest point between the rivers, which is where you should have the bomber drop its load. That should get you 3 stars :)

We have built a pro version of the game with those features, however it's not open to the public. It's mainly geared for real wildfire agencies for training purposes.

We're planning to do more dev work on the game soon, however we've been concentrating on building a pro version of FireJumpers over the last few months. It has a custom scenario editor, improved Tankers, aircraft altitude, on-screen and off-screen water pickups, dual screen for operator/trainee view points, and the list goes on. Working on a promo video and documentation on our redbloxgames.com site, should be there soon enough. :)

Under rating threshold (show) Just finished the newest version and must say it's very well done with the updates. I found tour 1 to be more difficult vs what it used to be before i.e. less hosers in some maps, down from 2 to just 1. Hope you make more maps or if that's not in the plans then offer us the option to customize/build our own maps and upload to the game to share for others sort of like what creeper world is doing. Also, hosers seem very weak now compared to what they used to be, almost pointless in that they barely hold the line and are used more to stall the fire not to put it out. The heli was always used to finish the job

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from jasonredhawk

Thanks for the input, we actually made the hosers stronger, but apparently, not strong enough. We've just recently built a pro version of FireJumpers for our government's wildfire agency and we've learned a lot more about how they handle things. One thing they also said was that only in rare cases can they not hold the line, so we'll be improving all their skills on the next update.

Under rating threshold (show) How do you beat Hawaii? I can't seem to get past it...

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from jasonredhawk

Start by transporting the Cut Team via Helicopter and drop him off in the south river (closest to the fire as possible). Start cutting south towards the road (roads are natural firebreaks). Pick up civilian and bring him back and pick up Hose Team. Drop Hose Team in north river. Then use helicopter to water bomb northern edge. With a little luck, you'll be able to contain the edges, while keeping the head of the fire between the northern and southern rivers. The waterbomber timer should activate just in time to allow you to hit the head of the fire from river to river. Should give you 3 stars :)

Developer response from jasonredhawk

I'm assuming you mean Malibu. Transport the hosers to the far hydrant with the helicopter. While the helicopter waterbombs the south-east blaze, have the hosers run straight towards the head of the fire. Run past the dense trees and spray on as much grasslands as possible. Grass is much easier to extinguish with water. Once the whole left side is put out, concentrate on the final north front. Should get you 3 stars. :)
