Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Anything new in 15/4 maintenance?

I feel like generally they have done just that, or at least given server downtime notices in game, when it is a planned outage. This is likely an unplanned break in service.
Edit: Thanks Kid, sorry I hadn’t logged in for an hour and didn’t know. All other comments seem valid to me then.

Congratulations AU; sorry I suck so bad at Dino Run and Jumper and couldn’t offer any competition.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / New City/World Trade Interface

This is really terrific, thank you. If only there were a better method for the 100 mails you get for selling 1500 items which require clicking through to collect money. :p

Also, it seems like visiting trade causes your workers to not “unpause” when you start a day, forcing a refresh. Was the workers starting paused necessary? I find that an unfortunate change.

So terrible… I assumed that 100k would be no problem, but I just can’t stay alive, even with only 1 tiny board I blow it.

I am really good at using bombs the moment I get hit and lose multiplier.

I doubt I can improve this at home. :(

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Trade market UI changes

Being able to see what is on CT only and what is on WT is great (yellow = CT only).
Excellent how quick buying/selling 99 things is. I know some would prefer to do 1k, but oh well, it still is way faster.
Selling for 0% or +10%, interesting. So little stuff is on trade at even +20% these days I don’t know what that will do to the market.

Not a fan of the day starting paused, but I’ll get over it. Might be useful for when the game crashes and needs a refresh (particularly during the day).

It takes Dino Run a while (a minute or two) to update the API (and a few switches from page 1 to page 2 of the all-time top scores), but it will do it.

Minor improvement, will send the new video if the 4 seconds matter.

LOL – That response was slightly edited. :)

I’m using HyperCam2 with the Xvid Codec, and as I said, at my work computer it didn’t lag the game at all (though I had everything else closed).

After playing on my work computer (getting the 6:30 you see in the scores) I tried at home to see how bad it was. With recording at home, it is 50% slower (what takes 22 seconds at work took 33 seconds at home) and even not recording it was 20% slower. Fortunately it doesn’t seem to be slower while recording while at work for me, but I’ll be interested in seeing your webcam video. :p

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Reporting Bugs & Issues

It seems like you have the 2B ceiling bug, as evinced by this screenshot (taken after I bought a Vengeful Entity and my $ went from 2.15B to -2.14B). I refreshed, and everything was fine, but it happened 3 more times until I got under the magic limit (postulation: 2,147,483,647). Now everything works normally.

Obviously not a big deal, as few are so miserly as myself to get to that level of cash on hand, but something to look into.

I mind and “vote” no since the last time I asked for a 24 hour extension (5 days in advance since I had a 4-day camping trip) it was declined and I was eliminated because of it (just needed 2 more damned hours to get those last badges…).

But I won’t be mad if it is extended. :)

I’m surprised you have improvements ready for this tournament (oh baby if it’s a “not-for-sale” label/bin I will be pretty giddy). Nice to hear updates on occasion. :)

I haven’t seen any fire. This round, punishment was brought up. Hell appears to be the unofficial theme.

I could at least claim that in GUR whatever the destructive blocks are are fire-laden… but I’m having trouble with justifying antichromatic as fire. However, on that elemental note, water takes many forms (snow/ice/steam). I wouldn’t complain about a lava-oriented game in the fire division (or even any kind of explosives for that matter). Ice is certainly much closer to water than anything in antichromatic is to fire (other than my hands/fingers after long sessions).

I pussed out and took an extra swing at the finish. Not counting boxless level 11, I could at best take off 12 seconds from this, and that’s getting pretty low %. No point bothering with that since Dodo obviously has some faster paths I haven’t found.

You people in DO2, 100M or bust! Good time to get the impossible badge. :) That should get you through the round.

Still botched it, but at least late enough.
I’ve been up for 33 hours straight now.
