Sorry, but you just asked a top ranking guild if we understand how the game mechanics work. Think about that for a moment :)

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / How to automate a save file backup

I’ve noticed the methods for backing up are fairly involved, and a pain to remember. I’ve just successfully set up a safe backup system on Windows 7 and I thought I’d write a guide (this is also possible on XP through Windows 8, but you’ll have to find the right utilities; all other OS, you are on your own). This guide is text only for the moment, I might return with pictures later this week.

Step 1:

  • Get a free 2GB Dropbox account and install their cloud storage software: http://www.dropbox.com/
  • I won’t get into detail on this, dropbox is a wonderful utility and comes with an easy guide. The end result will be a folder that sends any files or folders inside it to your dropbox cloud storage account.

Step 2:

Step 3:

  • In Drop box, create a folder. For simplicity sake, I named mine “aitgsaves” and left my local dropbox folder in the default location.
  • Run a search for your save files (antiidle_file*) and get the full file path.
  • Copy your save files into your new Dropbox folder

Step 4:

  • Run sync toy. If you do not get a first time walk through, click “Create New Folder Pair”.
  • In this menu, copy/paste the folder where your save files reside in the LEFT folder
  • Copy/paste the new aitgsaves folder into the RIGHT location and click next
  • In this menu, select ‘Contribute’ and click next
  • Give this pair a wicked awesome name, like AITGSaver and finish

Step 5:
You need to adjust a few things before you run it!

  • Click ‘Change options…’ near the middle of the screen
  • Under Files to include, type in “antiIdle_file*.sol” without the quotes
  • Make sure to un-check Save overwritten files in the Recycle Bin, and make sure ‘Active for run all’ is checked
  • Click ‘Select sub-folder’ and click ‘Unselect all’, then ‘OK’
  • Click ‘OK’ again
  • Click Preview, the list of files/actions that come up should only be your save files with an update action

Step 6/seal the deal and automate:
Most of these steps are there part of the synctoy help, I’ve modified this set to fill in a few blanks:

  • From the Start menu, select All Programs – Accessories – System Tools – Task Scheduler.
  • Select Create Basic Task in the Actions pane on the right.
  • Add a Name and Description and select Next.
  • Choose when you want the task to start and select Next.
  • Choose date/times (if applicable) to run task and select Next. I prefer just after the day roll over.
  • Choose Start a Program option and select Next.
  • Select Browse and locate the SyncToyCmd.exe. (My Default Location C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\)
  • Type “-R” in the Add Arguments textbox, and finish

That’s it; if you are set up properly, you will never lose more than 24 hours to an accidental save file deletion. Now take 5 extra minutes to get this together and never worry about it again.

If you need to restore the save file, open your Dropbox folder and there it is! Refer to the stickied save/load thread for completing that.

Topic: Time World / ztw1999 - attempting to scam

Kong name: ztw1999
Dream World name: ztw1999
Time World name: ztw1999

He offered a free Kongregate UGC card, being an obvious scam I played along and offered him items from my accounts that I don’t play anymore. He seemed disappointed when I told him this, took items anyway and requested more in exchange for the card.

Rough chat logs can be seen here: http://imgur.com/a/8u09n

Not shown, I asked him if there really was a UGC card; he responded: maybe
Pretty obvious but poor attempt at scamming/trolling. Please keep an eye on him.

Topic: Time World / Feedback and Suggestions

PVP arena seems to be limited by other players actually participating, more so for 2v2 and 3v3… perhaps some incentive for people waiting in the pvp arenas would help?

My suggestions which are flawed but just something to encourage fixing the current situation:
Increase points earned for time in line waiting for others to join the match
Give a win point for waiting more than 10 minutes with no match, but not an increase in score

Maybe you don’t have to turn it in at the Square of Order…? Did you refresh?

I am getting this as well, I have the item for the completed quest, but the dialog shown at the square is the pre-acceptance one. The buttons are greyed out and cannot be clicked, the bounty is frozen.

I have tried restarting and it did not work, also.

on Server 4

Ok, I figured it out. The quest required that I take the item to a 3rd location, which happened to be my home city. Found it by accident doing other quests. This is still a bug, in that it never told me where to take the item.
