Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Won't start

Despite the given timeline the event is still going on (at least for most of us) so the errors you’re getting might still be temporary.

In exploit fixing someone needed to get the short end of the stick. In this case it is you apparently. Want a hug?

Just back up the Unity save directory. I keep mine – along with the flash storage directory – in my owncloud, and symlink my assorted boxes’ saves to that.

Where is that? I’ve never had success finding where Unity keeps saves.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Holiday Event Bugs

Originally posted by dragonrider94:

As much as I hate to say it, I think the holiday stuff was kind of a flop. As much as I want to like it, and as much as I appreciate the gesture, there’s too many bugs, and too much unbalance for me to really get into it. 5000 candy canes isn’t possible (or at least doesn’t seem to be) without a golden gift, but without the gold from the free gifts, most of us free players won’t achieve it. So, in my opinion, this has been a flop.

I very much agree with this. I liked the idea of this event but as time goes on the flaws with it are just killing it more and more. Some of it I can definitely see as being run of the mil “there is no such thing as perfect code” type bugs. But the number of them and severity of a few makes me wonder if they didn’t quite finish the update and released it anyway. I hope for the best, but as a player that started earlier this month this hasn’t been a great first impression.

Wait, so you removed gold from free gifts but not golden gifts? To my knowledge, golden was what allowed people to amass a lot of gold. And with the export feature removed it is less about if gold is involved and more about what rate.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / High multipliers

I know Kong keeps track of transactions. I can look up how every one of my Kreds has been spent. What I’m not sure of is if the game can look that information up after the transaction’s completion.

Check the Tips and FAQ thread. Note the 5th question under the Technical Issues header.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / High multipliers

As said the tricky part is that many people bought gold with Kreds, and HHG can’t refund that. So it is unfair to those players to nerf the feature to hell. But without nerfing that feature to hell the game becomes too disjointed.

I could be misunderstanding since I’ve never worked on a game, but I think the Kong API allows you to see user transactions with “requestUserItemList” Using this we could determine how much gold was bought and how much was earned. Then we could refund the purchases back to gold, and transfer the earned gold into a new currency for a lower-powered store (or destroy it entirely with some weakened compensation like cash). Note the full store reset is because it would be impossible to differentiate purchases made with what kind of gold, better to make the player decide what to keep.

While that comes with it’s own issues it seems like a way to piss off the fewest number of people. Though I do think that multiplier should be somewhat nerfed anyway as a failsafe. Just throwing out that a 97.757% decay creates a multiplier cap of about x133.7. That is a lot but it isn’t game crushing if we end up here again, and there are people that spend a surprising amount on these games so I don’t think the cap should be set too low either.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Can't Export?

To my knowledge it was done on purpose in response to people using the feature to reroll presents they didn’t like.

Topic: Akaneiro / What happened to Spicy Horse (explained)

Thanks for the intel. It is a shame that it is being left in this state, but perfectly understandable.

I kind of wish in cases like this they would release the source code and let the community have a crack at fixing it, but I’m sure some of the code is proprietary and such. Plus I don’t think the handful of us that would be interested and know coding would be able to make a big enough improvement where the professional team failed. Here’s hoping that the new alice game serves their bottom line well so they don’t have to thrown in the towel.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Battle System

Are you wanting something like a favorites tab on the items bar? Because there is already an all items one.

I do agree that you should be able to drag the sub in as well as dragging the active out. But swapping positions live gets tricky because of the cleric (e.g. Are you trying to tell it to swap, or are you trying to heal)

Lets think it as a charity for those who just start play this game..

Well as a n00bie to this game I would like to thank all of you. It really is helpful to me right now.

EDIT: Actually since it was on my mind I tested a bit and the lack of speed hurts more than I previously noticed. Esspecially since it is currently leaving monsters with 1-3 HP and then has to cycle round again to finish them off. Comboing with a mage counters that some but it won’t be long before I’m done with the Turkey.

Topic: General Gaming / [Cursed Treasure: Don't Touch My Gems!] where do my saved games go?

There is definitely something deleting the files, but what it is on your computer I can’t say. Common culprits are the browser itself (such as clearing history on exit), a program to clean-up (CCleaner and AdvancedSystemCare being the main two I hear causing problems), or in some cases anti-virus software which is really just a deviation of the previous point.

Unfortunately there isn’t a good way to tell what the culprit is, and worse there can be multiples. When I had this problem recently I actually found two processes of AdvancedSystemCare to cause problems (manual cleaning and auto cleaning).

As for what you actually need to change it to, check out this thread for help finding where save data is stored, and then of course add that to the ignore lists of any program that you think might cause the error.

This happen anywhere else? Or just Cursed Treasure?

This happened to me and I had to change setting in AdvancedSystemCare to make it stop clearing out the data. Make sure you check any programs you have that might be clearing cookies or temp files, such programs can be a bit overzealous at times.

Topic: General Gaming / [Cursed Treasure: Don't Touch My Gems!] Whats the highest level anyone has reached before losing the will to live?

Originally posted by Desssh:

It’d be impressive getting 15 brilliants at level 15 or less, considering you get enough exp for lvl 16 from 15 brilliants ;)

I read that as you can only spend points through level 15. After that you would still be able to level up but not actually use that level.

If it was legitimately don’t even reach 16 then yes, it would be impossible. And even adjusted to avoid that fact, that would be horribly frustrating and difficult.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / ...

I’m a bit confused on how elemental armor works. For example I’m looking to increase fire resistance. Should I be looking for fire elements or water elements? Also with elemental armor is it possible to take more damage from attacks?

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Official Suggestions Thread

Not a sugestion for the game but rather for the forum. The old (big) thread used to have a list of suggestions that were in denied, approved, in consideration, and implemented. I found it to be very interesting, and helpful for thinking up new ideas without wasting your time. So I would love to see it come back, even if it is you starting a new one from here. Although the implemented list probably belongs better in the updates thread.

I feel like this is something that would have been requested already but I’m not finding it so sorry if I’m repeating someone.

Could there be a “track progress” option for quests just like there is for achievements?

What does the berserker card do? With the work it takes to get it I would think it would have to be really good.
