I seem to be having a lot of extreme slow-down for a week with the game, some that require me to wait 30 sec. to whack more bushes. I cleared my cache 2 days ago just to be sure, but that doesn’t seem to be the issue (and other game I play still go as fast as before). Anyone else?

If you’re playing on Chrome, it’s possible there is an issue in the latest version of Adobe Flash that is causing the delay. Hopefully they put up a new version soon.

I’m playing on Firefox and the lag is unbearable for me too.

It’s a memory leak of unprecedented proportions. Before Nate’s Birthday, it wasn’t there. During Nate’s Birthday it was bad but hit randomly when you zoned. Since the removal of NB, it’s every time I zone period. I have to zone, reload, zone, reload.

And when I say “unprecedented proportions”, I’m not kidding. I hit 12G memory use for BW2 once near the beginning of NB before I figured out what was going wrong. And yes, I’ve confirmed the memory leak many times per day since. I keep the Task Manager open while playing BW2 so I can shut it down every time it skyrockets.

Edit: I must have been extremely unlucky the one day, as it isn’t every time I zone since. Still, I have to reload the game at least 3 times every day (i.e. initial load + 3 extra reloads) trying to play the regular daily amount.

I feel the same, but maybe we are just unlucky.

I noticed the same: 1 jewelled chest during the Free Play runs for me. And to top it off, it gave me a second copy of a rare I already had.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Event Character Item Achievements

For the first time (I’ve played every event so far), it looks like I won’t get three items for an event character. Because the items in the chests are completely random, no matter how many Event Free Play runs you do, there’s no guarantee you can get one from each slot. Maybe I’ve just been lucky in the previous events, but this time I’ve gotten so many copies of things I already have that with only a few days left, I can easily see not getting that last slot filled.

The thing is, I’ve burned all my Warps to do extra runs as well, so both Pam and Siri have a good amount of Enchantment (Pam’s at 41, Siri’s at 50) but there’s still that one blank slot. Since I’m out of warps, I really only have the normal sunscreen drop rate left meaning that I’ll only get 4 more chests. They’ll probably be silver, so 1 item in each, and I need 1 specific item type out of 6. The odds aren’t great.

And no, I wasn’t so foolish as to spend 11,500 sunscreen on a jewelled chest (at least not before filling all 6 slots).

So, my question is: is there a weighting system to account for that as you get closer to the end of an event? Since it’s possible (though unlikely) that a player could end up getting a hundred items – all of which belong in a single slot – if it’s a purely random set up.

Ok, the gear, yeah, but have you thought about the enchantments? You can infinitely enchant any regular character by getting the same loot over and over, but you CAN NOT enchant any of the event character after the event’s end. This way, after some time, the event characters will be useless when compared to the regular characters with the enchantments. Looks like a serious balance issue to me.

Enchantments DO work for Event characters: 30% of Enchantment strength of the basic character in the slot applies to the Event Character (and vice versa).

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Dear Nate

Dear Nate,

How are you today? Blow anything interesting up? Take on any ferocious creatures before breakfast? I’m sure you have been having fun.

I think it’s time I admitted something to you. This is a lot harder than I thought it would be, even just writing it down in a letter. But, “no time like the present” as the saying goes.

I’ve been seeing your sister, Natalie. It’s even gotten to the point where I’ve given her a diamond ring. Yes, I know. We probably should have told you earlier, but it never seemed like the right time. It started small: I just dropped by while carrying a giant carrot I grew at my ranch and we started talking. I became her interior decorator pretty quickly, although we didn’t think of it that way at first.

All cards on the table: I’ve given her more than one diamond ring. We’re pretty serious about our relationship. I hope you won’t think badly of me for keeping this from you all this time.

The Bush Whacker

P.S.: Because she’s a Dragon, I’ve also given her Giant Squid.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Report a Bug v 2.0

I was wrapping up doing the “2,000 Levels For All” run to start the event. I bought all of the levels, made certain that I got the green check-mark next the goal at the top of the screen, Selected Nate’s “The End of the World” ability. It said the objective was completed as well. So I confirmed.

On the results screen, it claimed the run was Incomplete and gave no Rubies. On the mission selection screen, 2,000 is still listed as incomplete.

Topic: Picma - Picture Enigmas / Can you solve the 35x30 Plus Expert puzzle w/o guessing?

Yes, it is possible to do it without a single guess. No, it isn’t easy, but several of the points already made are good starting points.

Since the start of the event, the memory leak (I think) is ridiculous. In less than an hour, the game starts strobing, needing a reload.

It’s possible that it’s tied to the Maximize Crusaders Levels button, as it gets noticeably worse after using that.

After a few more reloads, I can say that Maximize doesn’t seem to have anything to do with it, and the leak is unplayable after about 15 minutes.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Report a Bug v 2.0

I just used the “IFOL-LOWC-RUSA-DERS” code and got the jeweled chest. When I used it, it gave me a Flowered Cornucopia card for the Rare item. However, the tab didn’t get a star next to it. When I checked the numbers, I hadn’t gotten an extra FC, but had gotten an extra Wooden Horn (which wasn’t in the 5 cards) and no star highlighting either one.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Suggestions

The achievements window always resets to the beginning when you switch to it, unless you completed an achievement in which case it targets the completed achievement. However, it then defaults to the location of that completed achievement every time you go back. Since it’s possible to change where that window defaults, could it not be made to default to wherever we had it last?

Used Magnify+Storm Rider. Went from 1.71Qt DPS to 1.8Qt. That’s still only 5%.

Loaded up Bush Whacker 2 in another tab and got the Window saying I’d loaded up another instance of Crusaders. So I had to reload Crusaders.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / In-Game friends list

Also, a way to determine who’s played recently that actually works so that we can get rid of Kong friends who no longer play (and no, the in-game Played Recently list isn’t accurate).

Deep Swamp, shaman freed in last puzzle: after freeing him, the camera pans to Capo, your trusty zombie guide. But then it freezes on him (i.e. it doesn’t recentre on you) unless you force the issue by re-entering a puzzle.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Feedback and Bug Reports

While fishing at a friend’s ranch, I fished up the stuffed dog. This immediately put me into build mode. I was able to move around and put away things on my friend’s ranch. I couldn’t get them back out, however, since I only had access to my own inventory. It was a strange mix of build mode for both ranches. Luckily, once I placed the puppy on my friend’s ranch, I was able to remove it back to my own inventory, and I’m fairly certain both inventories were separate and intact.

However, this build mode couldn’t be canceled. I was stuck on the dock fishing (or else messing with items within the visible area near the docks) since the cancel button was just placed on top of the fishing buttons, but didn’t work.
