Exactly…HyperHippo has given us the game we’ve always wanted: One that you can only play when you aren’t playing it. Amazing.

To be fair to hyperhippo it was last Thursday (UK), and two days since have been the weekend.

I’m just as cross as you are, but you can be certain that they are losing a lot of money over this, and they must be giving it top priority. Although it doesn’t feel like it, and it is suspected that the stated solution will not work.

Two more days without ads.

I’m still curious whether HH thought to communicate with the ad broker about the impending release prior to pushing it out. Or was it more like a, “Doh!” situation?

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist Mobile: General / Still no ads

It’s been days since HyperHippo came here and told us that the company serving the ads had throttled their availability due to all the new requests. They told us that things would be back to normal very soon.

Just curious how many more days is considered soon?

Still no ads…days after we were told that the ad provider would be adjusting the number of ads available any minute.

What the eff HyperBadCoders?

To follow up with the earlier post, we’ve confirmed that this is related to the increase in requests for ads. Long story short, our ad providers need to verify that the increase in ad requests are “valid” before they’ll adjust how they are throttling their inventory; should only be temporary. Our apologies for the inconvenience in the mean time!

In other words, no one at HyperHippo thought to contact the ad provider before releasing an update that was certain to drive a big increase in ad requests.

It’s OK. You youngsters are gaining valuable real-world experience in project management.

Now 2 (?) days later I’m done with moon.

Wow… first I pay all that to see any progress at all, and then you just END it.

Mars was fun. Done now too though.

So what did I really pay for?
KIND of disappointed!!!

Maybe you shouldn’t have paid so much money?

At least I can take some small satisfaction from the fact that you guys are losing money every minute we can’t get ads.

What do YOU think. For those of us that can’t get ads and probably won’t be able to until there is a fix, would you consider it cheating to do a 4 hour time advance a few times a day to make up the absence of your 2x bonus for the ads? Upon reading a recent hyperhippo post in another thread I dont think they really care too much if you do (that post is in the “Mars finished after less than 24” Thread). Just dont let yourself get carried away with doing that too much, that WOULD be cheating, lol.

OPINIONS ???

Ps. Be carefull if your not sure how to do this and you have one of your planets in timer mode….you may screw it up. I did this cheat/workaround ONCE so far and it did NOT screw up my Mars timer.

You are welcome to play the game however you like; however, the likelihood of this affecting your timer progress or your entire game negatively, is fairly high. The choice is yours!

Just fix the ad problem, please.

I changed time zones multiple times while waiting for the moon launch countdown, and never experienced an issue.

This is not a bug. The developers intentionally coded the game this way as an experiment to see how many idiots would keep viewing ads on a counting game that can’t count.

(My idiot self included.)

Apparently speed isn’t the strong suit of hyper hippo when correcting a credit problem. I sent in a trouble ticket because I bought gold and my game got reset.I sent that ticket in August 2nd. I got a reply 3 days later saying they just need a pic of my shop. I sent that pic same day and still waiting for a response. Looks like my money as well as support don’t matter very much too you. Correct me if I’m wrong please.

They don’t work on weekends.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist Mobile: General / What to do if your ads don't work.

I’ve seen a huge improvement in the delivery of ads shortly after the most recent update. Dld lose one 4-hour block of bonus time because I let the ad run and didn’t X out to go back to the game… After a few minutes the phone turned the display off, and the game counted the ad against my daily limit, but didn’t give me the bonus.

Originally posted by scrappledog:

Depressing to hear. I’m at around 21 septuagintillion lifetime earnings, reclaiming whenever my angels get near 15-20 percent to inch closer and closer to the 4100 newspapers upgrade. Had thought things might accelerate there. Sad times.

What do you mean by 15-20%?

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist Mobile: General / Dear developers...

How these developers can keep their jobs when such a simple app is so full of bugs is beyond me. I am also playing another game that is multiplayer, features multiple screens (including real-time combat) and an economy with in-game purchases, and I haven’t experienced a single bug.

And the simple issues of the ads not loading, and no connection to G+ leaderboards have been ongoing for months, through multiple releases. It’s just an idling game, guys. How freaking complicated can it be? I’m embarrassed for the developers every time that hippo logo loads. There are kids in high school who could have coded this game better.

Kongragate clearly went with the lowest bidder to get this thing built.

Here is what I’m doing. I will NOT be using ads. I will check the game at most 3 times a week and upgrade accordingly until they fix the moon revenue problems. Again NOT using ads!!!!!

Someone needs to get fired over the ad situation. There are plenty of young developers waiting for a job. I’d be ashamed of this were the app I released to the public as “complete.”

Originally posted by mike_m417:

I did reset, thats how I got them, is the bonus just automatically added? I don’t have to actually like.. Place them on specific businesses?

Yep, it’s automatic. You don’t do anything with them.

So I got overzealous and after finally grinding to 24 untrilligonwhatever angels, I bought the upgrade. So I basically screwed the pooch majorly.

Can we actually call it “grinding” when in fact we’re just waiting?

I have 8001 Angels, weak I know, but how do I assign Angels to businesses? Or is that not how this works?

You have to restart from the beginning and then those Angels will give you a 160X bonus (2% per angel).
