Topic: General Gaming / Pingy the Ping Idle RPG - suggestions?

The rhythm of the slot machine is so weird to me. A normal machine will go like this:
1. Spin button/Handle pull
2. A Second or two of all reels spinning (builds suspense and makes it feel like all the reels have been thoroughly mixed.
3. First reel clicks into place
4. Short pause (1/4 second maybe)
5. Second reel clicks into place
6. Short pause
7. Third reel clicks into place
8. Short pause
9. Fourth reel clicks into place
10. Award celebration (If applicable.)

Enforce the rhythm by determining the final outcome during step 2 and reveal the result one reel at a time.

“Nazi” does not need to be capitalized when it’s being used to describe a person who is overly authoritarian. It’s correct to capitalize when you are describing a person as being a literal Nazi i.e., they belong to the Nazi political party.

On pretty much all modern slot machines you can either hit the spin button again to skip to the end of the game. On games with a touch screen you can stop the individual reels by tapping them.

Topic: General Gaming / Pingy the Ping Idle RPG - suggestions?

I work on slot machines as my job so I have a few suggestions:
Denomination: Please put a $10 mark on the machine so I know how much it costs to play
Paytable: For each of the possible ways to win, please indicate what the combination looks like and how much it pays. It’s okay to have this info on a separate help screen to keep the art from getting cluttered.
Better win ceremony: When you do win, it’d be nice if the winning symbols lit up to indicate the win.
Sound: Sound effects are an awfully important part of slot games, I understand if you don’t want to include them though. (Definitely include a mute button)
“Skill” Stop: Many modern slot machines let you stop the reels early if you touch them or hit the spin button again, in my state the outcome is predetermined so it doesn’t make a difference, but it’s fun for the player.

There are a lot of complicated ways you can really kick it up a notch, but these basic improvements will go a long way. Send me a message if you want to learn way too much about slot machines.

I LOVE sneak peeks. For some reason your game is the first one that I’ve really been enthusiastic about! How’s the wheel of misfortune coming along?

I’d like a way to get mystery points, something like the money printer maybe. Something that costs a ridiculous amount of gold and will probably never pay for itself.
How about a mystery point oven Tukkun?

Anyone know what affects the Mystery Points per minute? I used to get 2.0 and now I’m getting 1.5.

I’m pretty excited about the new stuff. Can you add more outfit slots? I think it’d be nice to be able to save all the sets and have one or two just for fun.
