Topic: Off-topic / I am downloading the sims 2 ultimate collection for free and legally

Problem with that, you still need that Origins BS.

I tested and you need only an Origin site account to claim the game, not actually download and install the Origin software.

So if you just want to register Sims 2 to your account, follow these steps:

1) Create an Origin account.
2) Visit the Origin code redemption page and log in to your Origin Account.
3) Enter I-LOVE-THE-SIMS in the ‘Product Code’ field.

Topic: Off-topic / OT's Official AdVenture Capitalist Thread!

I keep reading comments about people losing their saved games. It’s a good idea to back it up daily. Here are some basic instructions:

1) Go to “Settings”, then click “Export”. It will then say “Copied to Clipboard”.
2) Open Notepad or any text editor. Press “Ctrl + V” (Windows) or Command + V (Mac) to paste your saved game.
3) Save your Notepad file and keep it somewhere safe. You can use Dropbox, Google Drive, Pastebin, or just email yourself the file.
4) You can also describe your save file (e.g. “Before third reset”, “1 Billion Angel Investors”) for easier restoring.

My current progress:

So uh I somehow made the mistake and spent 25 billion Angel Investors (apparently I had 40 billion angels oh well) on well, you’ll see.

You should be extra careful when handling upgrades that cost Angel Investors. If this was a simple mistake that’s no big deal, you will get it back to 40 billion today. Generally speaking, try to have at least twice the amount of A.I. you are going to spend for a particular upgrade.

However, you should ignore the 25 billion “merger” upgrades until you have at least 200 billion A.I., have acquired the “Divine Intervention” upgrade and got 550 of Newspapers, Car Wash, Pizza and Donuts.

Edit: I managed to get Car Wash, Pizza and Donuts to 600 without the merger upgrades (still used one for Newspapers), so I saved 75 billion A.I.

Wait, what do you mean by get the upgrades with the Angel Investors? Right now I’m only getting the upgrade that you get like a 3x multiplier for 10,000 Angels. Should I be spending more on something else? Gosh I’m not sure how end game works yet on this.

Yeah, these two:

They will cost you 1.1 billion AI but are definitely worth it if you have over 5 billion AI in total.

I’m keeping an imgur gallery with my progress in this game so far. Each screenshot was taken right before a reset, so there’s 14 in total.
I was resetting every day until this past Monday, when I left for a trip. After returning today and checking the new update, I did another reset. This is my current status:

Check the thread called Broken Badges I think it has been mentioned in there

Yeah they’ve been broken for a while now. I sent a missing achievement request, not sure if it will be done in time for Tuesday.

Since Greg is on vacation, could any other admin replace that BotD?

Usually I try to get some rest, and if it gets increasingly annoying I take some medicine. You should probably see a doctor though.

I remember his performance at that Olympics. He was quite a star back then. Swimmers peak at a very young age and usually have a short career, I was wondering what happened to him. Didn’t know he had to deal with alcoholism and depression.

(Although I don’t mind giving an impossible badge for getting all in-game achievements just because it’s impossible to do that without cheating ;) )

Not impossible, It just takes time. Around 1 quadrillion Angel Investors I believe.

Topic: Kongregate / Is Kongregate dying?

Emily Greer adressed this topic a while ago:

Originally posted by emily_greer:

The reason it feels like the MMOs & CCGs are dominating, though, is because though the number of total games uploaded on Kongregate has stayed pretty steady over the last few years, the number of highly-rated games has dropped drastically. Back in 2011 we average 46 highly rated (3.7+) new games a month. It dropped to 30 in 2012, but that was still one good new game every day so the difference wasn’t very palpable. But in 2013 we’ve only averaged 16 highly-rated new games a month, with probably about a quarter of those MMO/CCG type of games. With only one good new game every other day it means that every decent game spends longer in Hot New Games and in some droughts (August-October) Greg was having trouble finding games to add badges to.

So why the big drop in good single-player Flash games? It’s not just Kongregate, it’s all the game portals. It’s the result of some complicated market forces, most directly the crash in the amount Flash developers get for game sponsorships, but most of them lead back to one thing: the rise of mobile games.

Topic: Off-topic / Hallucent's Official "Don't Let MmeBunneh Starve" Page

Hopefully you feel better soon. It didn’t look so bad from the pictures (then again I never made or even ate pancakes at all), but you shouldn’t eat something that tastes “wretched”. Don’t feel bad about throwing such food away. It’s part of the learning process.

Following online instructions like “mix the ingredients then let it fry until it looks edible lol” is recipe for disaster. If you want to actually make pancakes it’s a better idea to learn from a place that lists all ingredients and their quantities, like this one. It even includes a video and a detailed step-by-step process for making them (Disclaimer: I never attempted any recipes from that site).

Edit:

I somehow missed that. It definitely doesn’t look like a Banana Bread should. If it made you very sick though, it’s not something you want to keep around.

I noticed that post as well and even took a screenshot. I can imagine why Argentinians would get mad as it seems Brazil gets most of the controversial calls (this is probably true for every home team ever). I think the referee today was just incompetent. Too many fouls and not enough cards.

Edit: Neymar is out for the remainder of WC. Brazil chances of winning it decreased quite a bit.
