Topic: General Gaming / Games that get too much flak.

Any game I review. Just kidding! Or not. :shifty:

From my vantage point it seems like Decision III gets a lot more flak than it deserves… but I’ve never had any problems with the game. For me it runs 100% glitch free, yet most of the complaints are about black screens. shrug

I bet if you asked what games don’t get as much flak as they deserve you’d get a thousand replies. lol

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Occupation Rewards

I’m not going to over think this one. Simply put, it’s not as much fun now as it was with milestones. Occupation=few people get rewards; Milestones=everyone can get rewards. Occupation rewards dedicated players, does not reward casual players. And I’m willing to bet that there’s more casual than dedicated players. But I wouldn’t discount occupation entirely. As an occasional event, occupation could provide a way to periodically reward dedicated players for their diligence.

Heh. so much for not over thinking this. :p

Why?

Web applications are designed for computers, which have different input/output devices than mobile devices. You can’t fit a computer-sized image on a mobile device. Also, the input requirements for computers and mobile devices tend to be different. (Computer uses a mouse, mobile device utilizes a touch screen, for example.)

I expect that the game is identical in terms of earnings, investments, etc. I think it’s just hardware considerations.

Thanks for clarifying, Aaron.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / I thing players that beat the stage from 1 - last round with non-stop box ticked should get extra bonus...isn't it?

I think OP has a point. It is definitely more of a challenge to clear a tile in non-stop mode. But I’d think the reward for such a feat would be more along the lines of increased chance of something than an automatic material gain of some sort.

Definitely. Thanks to tinnitus I hear what sounds like cicadas 24/7.

Same here. I can’t see my upgrades anymore. The upgrade button lights up, indicating available updates. But there’s no visible updates to buy! However, I can click on the ‘quick buy’ button and money is subtracted… so presumably there’s something going on… but the descriptors have all gone missing.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Mandatory account for beta access?!

Kiljaedenas, I think it’s likely that they mistakenly posted a beta game in the general game pool before it was ready to go there. I’m assuming they then corrected their mistake and moved it to the beta game pool. Beta games are only available to premium accounts — in fact, it’s one of the main benefits of getting one.

Dunno if that’s what actually happened, but that’s what it sound like to me.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / New tower ideas

Splashies

Following on the idea for ‘Floaties’ presented by DutchGamer2013, ‘Splashies’:
Cost $300
Time to build: 10 min.
XP 150

Can only be placed on land. Provides a water square to enable placement of ships (or other water based towers, if any are ever added).

Edit: this is a specialty tower which enables placement of other towers. As such, it has no upgrades.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Bug Reports

I’ve been bitten by the ’can’t buy’ bug. I can’t buy any cash upgrades even though I’ve got oodles of $$.

Edit: Closing Chrome and restarting the game fixed the problem. huzzah!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Manager question

I think upgrades apply to everything from the time you purchase them until you do a reset, so the manager upgrade should apply to all managers until reset.

For pity’s sake, add a bestiary. I have tasks that say things like ‘conquer ten tiles showing ZOMG balloons,’ yet there is no available reference screen showing which balloons those may be.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Pacifist mode turning off

As it turns out, you can’t remove most MvM buildings:

No trick. MvM buildings aside from bloontonium generators and storage tanks count as upgrades and thus cannot be destroyed just like all of the other upgrade buildings.

:(

Oh well. Might as well rebuild those storage tanks then, I guess. Thanks for the info :)

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Pacifist mode turning off

I think people use pacifist mode so they don’t have to trust to luck that they won’t be attacked. But since pacifist mode is unreliable, it’s still a matter of luck. I went into pacifist mode, still got attacked. I guess I’ll remove my MvM stuff and see if that helps. :/

I have also been unable to send any crates as well.


There is nobody on my Attack Friend list, nor can I send crates or ask for them. Dev, fix this for everyone, please?


I noticed this yesterday about 9pm (Mountain Standard Time) and wonder if there is a a fix for this yet.

Any chance of this getting fixed?
Losing the crates is one thing.
Losing the respect of my regular trading partners is quite a bit worse.


Still can’t send crates. Even if you can’t fix it now, NK or Kong, a simple response of ‘message received’ would help.


Crates still broken


This chain has gone on for WAY too long. Can the Developer PLEASE fix this?!


+1 to the chain. Cannot send or receive crates.

1 more.

( Waves the ME TOO flag on this )


DEVELOPER! FIX THIS NOW!!!!!!!!! THERES WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE IN THE CHAIN!


crates no longer work for me… yay…

What I want to know; is this happening to everyone, or only some of us?
Still can’t send crates, btw. :|

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Bllonstone Waste

The most common comment I’ve seen regarding bloonstones is something like, ‘OMG I really, really wish I hadn’t wasted my bloonstones early on. I really need them to upgrade now, and I don’t have ‘em!’

Edit: Not that I didn’t spend them like a drunk sailor early on. I did. But these days I save them for upgrades. ;)

Zoomable city screen. The game would benefit from ability to view the entire monkey city at a glance.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Full Screen

You can kind of fake full screen by changing screen resolution. On my monitor, 1024 X 768 resolution is about 95% of full screen. At 800 × 600 I can’t see everything, and at 1900 × 1080 everything is a bit small. Caution: if you don’t know how to change and restore screen resolution get someone who does to help.

edit: corrected screen resolution number (e.g. 1900 x 1080 not 1980 × 1200)
