Topic: AdVenture Capitalist Mobile: General / Septuagintillions Are SLOW AF

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.”

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist Mobile: General / Angels?

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).

4. Have you tried resetting the ad id (android)?
Go to settings and under Google go to ads and reset ID account. Close the app. Restart the device.

Can anyone elaborate on this? There is no “Google” on the Settings screen of my Nexus 6.

I always can watch ads at the morning and at the mitnight, but anything else. I dont think it is a problem of our phones

Yep, this is my major issue. It seems like the ad server gets to busy in the middle of the day (US) and I’m competing with everyone else for a limited number of available ads, or connections to the ad server.

I’m in Japan, on vacation, same issue, same time of day (US time).

Here’s how i get my bonuses (haven’t missed since last update). There may be unnecessary steps, but it’s my ritual.
1. Go to application manager to force stop and clear the cache of the app
2. Go to Google Settings (the icon is a g with a gear)
3. Select Ads.
4. From the menu that comes out Select reset twice. Clear the opt out box. Reset twice again. Check the opt out box. Reset twice again
5. Open ad cap and activate the bonus.
6. If screen goes dark but no ad pops up i close it and open the forums.
7. Exit forums and access add again.
About 80% of the time i get the ad on the second time

OK, I’m willing to try this because I haven’t been able to get a single ad in over 12 hours.

So where is the Google Settings icon from step 2? I just looked through all of the apps under Settings > Apps (All) and don’t see it.

How do you get to this “Google Settings” item?

Nevermind. I did a search on my device and found it, although it wouldn’t open.

Then I accidentally hit the Clear App Data on Adventure Capitalist and lost all of my progress (didn’t even bother to check about the bonuses I’d bought with gold). I just uninstalled the game. It was just getting too frustrating dealing with the ads and making such pitiful progress on the moon to get to the next round of useful upgrades.

Good riddance. Back to playing Ingress and actually getting out of the house.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Won a card...Now what?

So I just won a “card” for playing Takeover.

I’m trying to learn more about what the card is and what it’s for.

I’ve spent some time clicking around in my profile to see if I can get more information about it, but when I did find a page about it and clicked on the card it just took me back to Takeover.

I remember that Kongregate had a card-based game a few years ago. I suspect that this card is for that game. But I don’t remember what that game was called or how to find it on the site.

Just throwing this out there because although I generally like Kongregate’s UX, this is one of those times when I think the UX folks didn’t think it through.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / [Guide] What to do, and what not to do.

I’m guilty of randomly requesting trades. I’ll stop doing it.

When I find a good item that I already have in my vault, I try to give it to a lower-level player with a class that can use it, particularly to priests and paladins, knowing they may save my ass later.

I never ask for anything in return, I just want to play “Santa Claus,” but a lot of people do ignore the trade offer.

Instead, I’ll start asking if there are any newly starting players of class X that want an item.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / "The bloody battle for survival among 3 races."

Hey there lepug101…Last time I checked, adding mechanical parts to a person didn’t change their race.

Also, the opening art shows a robot, not a cyborg.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / "The bloody battle for survival among 3 races."

So it’s a game about my neighborhood then?

I love the idea of games that are about interracial death matches.

You should have more “races” like Black Africans vs Caucasians. Oh, and Hispanics vs SE Asians!

Or maybe, you know, choose your wording a little better. I’m not sure robots count as a race.
