Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Saving the Game

Solved. Go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Cookie-Exceptions
Add trimps.github.io and save.

Note: Firefox lists no cookies for trimps.github.io, no session cookies for trimps.github.io, no data and no listing anywhere for trimps.github.io data. But add it anyway. Apparently Firefox uses this Cookie setting to control the new HTML5 storage location, and gives no listing for trimps.github.io data anywhere. No listing that it’s trying to save data, no indication that it’s being blocked. When this issue crops up on any random game or website, there seems to be no realistic method to track down where the problem is, or to figure out what site needs to be whitelisted.

I updated from Firefox 40 to Firefox 41.0.1.
I enabled Storage Inspector.
I load http://trimps.github.io/ and inspect it.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Saving the Game

Yes, I checked exactly that panel (except in English).
There’s a long list of sites, and trimps.github.io doesn’t exist.

Not that it matters, but I’m running Firefox on Win7. This is the only game having a problem.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Saving the Game

Like I said, I already checked Github cookies. When I load http://trimps.github.io/ the page info says it’s not storing any information on my computer. There’s nothing there to whitelist.

I’ve already got Kong whitelisted.

Trimps is not a normal Kong game, and it doesn’t use the normal game save methods. We can’t fix the problem until someone identifies what unusual save method Trimps is using.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Saving the Game

The broken saves, and having to constantly import/export the code is a major headache.
To resolve the issue we need to know what unusual save system Trimps is using. It’s not saving it in Kong/Flash. It doesn’t seem to be saving in Kong/cookie. I see the game accesses github, but I’m not seeing any Github cookies. I haven’t been able find where the heck the game is trying to save game data, so I can’t fix it.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Perk allocation?

I think you underestimate how huge Carpentry is, many of your minor stats are a bit high compared to your carp. On your next portal just dump everything you can into Carp.

The 40’s are slow…. I made the mistake of not wanting to “waste” much helium on wormholes, because of that I did too many resets in the 40’s. Trust me, when you break through to level 50 it is massively worth it. If you have already done a few resets in the 40’s, trust me, just blow every bit of helium you have so far on Wormholes to push through. 50 gives you enormous pop increase and the 50’s are easy and fast. Then you do just a few in the 60’s and you get a gigantic pile of helium. The first time I broke through to Z50 and did a few 60’s, my total helium went up more than 50% on one run.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / Build Queue Feature Request

Please allow us to add build-orders to the build queue, even if we can’t afford them yet. If the active item in the build queue costs more than the available resources, the game would just leave it there with no action (treat it like an empty build queue). Construction would start up as soon as there are enough resources available.

Topic: Trimps: General Discussion / [Suggestion] Timer

Agreed. I’ve often had the same thought, wishing the % report were a time-remaining report. The timer isn’t expected to account for anticipated resources from fighting…. any resources gained from fighting would just make the timer jump down when you got them.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Megabucks Leaderboard

60 megabucks. All earth.

Zero actual-money spent. x3 earth multiplier, from Christmas event free gold. 179 duotrig angels (jumps to 225 duotrig angels if I reset right now). 33% bonus per angel (the extra 3% is from Christmas event bonus).
7328 lemon. 4790 shrimp.
4056 news. 5100 hockey.
4183 cars. 5571 movie.
4314 pizza. 6200 bank.
4612 donuts 7031 oil.

111.6 billion angels on moon, if i reset. I’m a factor of 1000 short of getting the first moon megabuck. Moon progress is stupid-slow. It’s clearly scaled for people to spend piles of actual money.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / 100 of dem there lasers

I suggest 7+ billion angels. On that run buy the Oxy x3 upgrade for 666 million angels. (And the x3 all, of course. But not the others.) Upgrade the general stuff, then go for Wolves 350, then Clones 840(!) because it gives Cheese x3 bonus. Then spend a little time buying a few more Oxy and Cheese. (At that point you want Cheese upgrade cost to be 1.4 times the Oxy cost). Then go for the 100 lasers. And after getting 100 lasers let it keep running for quite a while. The next reset is still going to have a painful rebuild time to 100 lasers, so it’s better to let it run long, than reset and waste so much downtime trying to get 100 lasers again.

Note: Laser costs can be very deceptive. When you have 98 lasers you are less then half way to 100 lasers. 94 lasers is less than 10% of the way to 100 lasers. Don’t skip the Clones 840. You seriously need it for the 100 lasers run.

The Angels upgrade x3 for Shoes, Clones, and Express becomes worthwhile to buy at around 70 billion angels. Grav Booths are super-crappy, don’t even look at that Angel x3 buy until… I dunno…. probably a few trillion angels.

Topic: Dragons and Titans / Lost T3 Dragon

I filed a bug report on the vanishing T3, I brought the issue to a chat-mod, and this thread has been up for nearly a month. I still haven’t gotten any response at all about the issue.

Topic: Dragons and Titans / Lost T3 Dragon

I had a T1 Arcfury, then I got a T3 Arcfury from day-15 reward. The next day I entered the DRAGONS building on the map and checked what bonuses the T3 gives… and I specifically saw that I had one T1 and one T3 Arcfury. I then went into a game to try the new T3, and in-game it gave me the T1 Arcfury. After the game I checked back in the DRAGONS list, and it showed that all I had was the one T1 Arcfury. The T3 VANISHED from my dragons list.

And nope, I didn’t accidentally sell it. I had 10 crystals. If I had somehow sold the T3 by accidence I would have gotten 5000 crystals for the sale.

A side question: Is the squid eye ever going to get fixed? It’s seriously obnoxious when the fear triggers multiple times, and the devs announced quite a while ago that it was going be fixed to only trigger once.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / I want x1000

It’s definitely worth it to get an autoclicker. It helps rebuild you up to max really fast after a reset.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Angel Investor Formula changed?

In theory everything spend on upgrades is a permanent loss in the growth formula, but the exponential growth in the game means that anything older than the last reset or two rapidly diminishes to undetectable insignificance. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve bought a hundred million angel upgrade, or how many times you’ve bought a hundred trillion dollar upgrade, when you’re gaining Überzillion angels per second. Old resets don’t matter, just focus on making the current upgrade suitably profitable.

If your most expensive angel upgrade required a yes/no confirmation, then add that number to your current angels when considering an upgrade. If your angels-gained is equal-to-double that much then you’re definitely good for a reset. Waiting much longer than that quickly becomes inefficient. There are certain points where you hit a wall – where it takes an unusually long time to get the next upgrade. If you hit one of those walls, and on a reset you can rebuild your income within a few hours, then it can be worthwhile to do earlier resets. In the most extreme case I did a reset with a 20% gain, one reset with a 25% gain, and I’ve done a few resets in the 30%-50% gain range. If you do that you just need to be SURE to factor in the most expensive angel-upgrade that you bought on the last reset. Those sorts of early-resets can be really helpful when you’re stuck for many days dragging towards the next upgrade.

Topic: Dragons and Titans / Patch Notes Nov 27-14

Skip the survey.
The goal should be for all dragons and all weapons to be used equally. You’ve got the PvP play-stats to measure that. Either count all dragons and weapons used by both teams, or maybe just count the winning team. Any dragon or weapon that is under-represented should get a tiny stat boost. Any dragon or weapon that is over-represented should get a slight stat reduction. Repeat that on a regular basis and very quickly the players will balance everything out for you.
This could very easily be automated, with the software using play-stats to make the adjustments on a regular basis.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

inferno-legend is probably one of the top-2 worst badges ever. (I have 93% of all badges, so I know almost all of them.)
I wanted to gouge my eyes out after 5 minutes, and 20 minutes in I turned on an auto-clicker and just started waving the mouse at the goddamn endless “click to continues”.
I thought there was a rule that non-interactive videos were strictly prohibited on kong?

P.S. the top comments on the game are: #1: How did this get badged? #2 …one starts to question the integrity of the entire badge-awarding process. #3 I’m mildly curious how this game got a 4.1 with over 5k ratings. Considering that the game is literally unplayable, that seems a little fishy. #4 I’m 20 minutes in and it still won’t let me click on anything other than what’s scripted. This is a fucking painful badge. #5 …1\5 for not even being able to login\create a character. The rest of the comments are similar.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Comprehensive Special Building Terrain List

Is there an easy way to see what terrain is under all your buildings? I needed a mountain tile, and it took me forever clicking my buildings one-by-one, moving them to look, and cancelling to avoid spending the move cost.

I’m pretty sure I blocked Time World ages ago, and I already gave it a 1 star rating.
Can I give it two more 1 star ratings, and block it twice more?

Yeay! Check-box to not pester me for ratings anymore!

Any chance you guys could fix the Firefox rightclick problem? On Badge-of-the-day and some other links, javascript is catching the rightclick and opening the link. This blocks Open-In-New-Tab and other rightclick menu options.

If it reduces the profitability of engaging in spamming by even one cent, then I consider that helping. It would be better if more people helped. If the games took a big enough rating hit then they would generally choose to stop doing it.
