Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Financials Don't Add Up, aka Someone's skimming off the top.

Tested it on mine and my data confirms that it’s just about 50%+. I can’t believe I was being robbed this whole time :P
Oddly, Time Warp gives the right result and not 50%.

Also checked offline income. It results to just about 100% cash per sec.

Conclusion: Don’t spend too much time online.

Just tested this and you’re right: Offline I’m getting 100%; online I’m getting ~54%. The workaround where you buy the managers while the bar is moving does work initially, but it seems to stop working on refresh (or at some other point. I haven’t reset in a couple of days so I can’t test that just yet.)

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Cash per second might be bugged too?

Solution in this thread: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2606-adventure-capitalist/topics/447275-earning-only-half-what-i-should-be

When you reset, you have to buy the cheap managers while the bar is moving for that particular business. So start newspaper and then quickly go to Managers and buy the newspaper manager. Repeat for each of the other businesses (Lemonade moves a little too fast for me to get in time.) It’s a hassle, but you’ll end up earning about 99% of what you’re supposed to be earning (unless you can get Lemonade,) as opposed to the 54% you’re getting now.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Earning only half what I should be

Cecilpl – You nailed it. I just reset and bought all the cheap managers while the bars were moving (minus Lemonade which is too fast) and now I’m earning only a tiny bit less than I should. Thanks for the info!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Earning only half what I should be

Eomry – that’s the same percentage as I have, and the problem persists through refresh, reset and reboot. It would be nice if someone could confirm – ie, by testing it like you and I did – that they are making what they’re supposed to be making. I’m wondering if this is a game-wide problem that most people just haven’t noticed or if it’s only affecting a few people.

Hally- Yep, that’s happening to me too

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Earning only half what I should be

I’m only earning about half what both Time Warp and my displayed $/sec numbers say I should be earning (I added up all the $/sec numbers.) Other people in chat say they have the same issue.

One person said refreshing fixed it but it didn’t work for me. Another said they reset and the problem was still there.

Anyone else having this problem?

Pong on the Atari Home Pong console. They used to make a console just for Pong and everyone thought it was awesome.

I’ve finished everything except the final battle, but I’m missing two keys to boxes: The first danger room box (the brown/bronze one) and the box in the Lava area behind the dragon. Anyone remember where they got either of these keys?

Edit: nevermind. I just missed a chest with a copper key that’s somewhere on the &^% map.

They’re all in nests in the open (though some are harder to see than others.) Have you tried using the walkthrough map to find them?

edit: looking at the map, there’s one that you might not be able to get to until later, when you have the lilipad boots.

You get it from the other side. You’ve got at least another area/boss before you should worry about it.

Gotcha. Thanks!

Topic: General Gaming / The "What was that game called?" Thread

I’m looking for a Kong game from the last couple of years:

It’s a sliding picture puzzle game where the picture segments are all different sizes and they stretch or shrink depending on which slot you move them to. The pictures are mostly photographs and they include: A Broadway scene with posters of musicals; an elephant; a church altar; an asian food stand; an African watering hole with a herd of animals (hippos or wart hogs or something.)

Anyone know the name of this game?

44) You sew a patch on your bathrobe that says “I soloed my first Orb Boss and all I got was this shitty Greater Demon Robe of Life +3”

Not that I’m bitter or anything…

Topic: Dream World / Skinning Cacti

If you go back and complete an easy quest, it seems that the reward you get is commensurate with your current level. Maybe still not worth the energy it takes, though.

With the boar’s tusk quest, there’s a secondary part to it as well. You have to then kill 20 thieves (though it started me at 12 kills for some reason). Very easy to do – they come up virtually every encounter – but it’s a lot of wasted energy.

Topic: Dream World / Automatic fight

I use Google Chrome and had the same problem as OP. I went into Options and changed the setting to ‘allow all cookies’ and that fixed the problem.

Also, after you check the box, you can go back and restrict the cookies again and the box will still stay checked.

I completed it by the third or 4th level. Not getting one in 40 tries… I don’t know what to tell you. That’s absolutely horrible luck.
