And for comparison, there’s already an impossible that can be aquired in around five minutes, but finishing this game isn’t as hard as the perfect run in stremline.

That depends, for me Streamline was much easier than Hippolyta ^^"

Stop sprinting for a split second and tap the next button a few times so you’re sure she does that command

Phew, just finished level 5. Indeed, slowing down is kinda useful, you don’t really need to sprint during the whole level.

I don’t remember my total number of trials, but I have outran between 10 and 20 riders. The game was challenging (“damned, got the 100 fails achievement”), and I’d go for “impossible”. This would clearly not be among the hardest impossibles, but there are quite a few impossibles that are easier (including the EBF one).

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

I’m currently at level 5. Is there a trick for chained obstacles? I mean, I can enter the commands fast enough but Hippolyta doesn’t follow, for example when I’m tapping ↓ to dodge a tree, she hasn’t finished putting back her shield from the previous arrow obstacle (or “reloading” the javelin from the farmer obstacle) and so she doesn’t crouch before it’s too late.

For this impossible, it is normal for the first bullet that hits me to do 5 bars of damage in endless insane mode? Or is this a bug?

Edit: Actually, it seems most shots do 5 bars with a few that do 3 or 1. And it is not present in endless mode. (They all seem to do 3.)

I think it also increases with the number of bosses killed in the run, so it depends when you got hit for the first time.

Dunno how that works exactly, I’ve just played the “game” until lv10+ but saw nothing. I think the challenge is not available (at least for me).

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / phantomwolf13's TFCG deck list with statistics

Got 10-2 against Chronos with RoboTurtle’s deck (no superpowers).

First loss was due to a very early perma-CM (before I could get any stat wipeout), followed by a big combo of direct damage (early stage, so the regen setup was not yet ready)
Second loss was due to no generator/match delay in the 10+ first turns

Most of the time he only kills one Razor Mantis (max was 3 killed)

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Inexplicable AI:TG slowdown

This may be a stupid question, but is your 15% across all cpus or only one?

Ex: 6 cpus => sometimes the cpu usage is shown as 100% when 1 cpu is fully used (max = 600%), and sometimes it’s shown as 16% (max = 100%)

Get out and shoot, then get back in.

Mission #14 completed – Yeah, this cut-off is kind of arbitrary, but man, mission #15 is HARD. :(

That’s funny because after I finished #14, I tried #15 with the same setup as #14 to see what’s so hard and got it first try x) I had more troubles with #10.

This sounds like a stupid question but where should we go to select the language? I know people who are asking how to switch back from French to English.

It’s not too long if you can play, I’m also stuck on the “searching for spies” half of the time (Firefox), and I already had to refresh several times in the 50% working times because I’m stuck, e.g. “click here to continue! Oh wait there is no button here, just a blank spot”.

And why is the game screen so tall? I can’t even see the whole screen with a maximized window without going full screen

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Petition] Arcade balance changes

Maybe you can somehow show the bronze target by default, then silver or gold if bronze or silver has been beaten. So the player knows that the “par score” is not the first level they have to achieve. Or show all three targets in three colors.

In fact I’m currently moving data across different computers and haven’t reconfigured my scripts (yet…).

Today I got a Firefox crash. Afterwards, the chat.kongregate.com folder was empty. Poof, everything’s gone. Wtf. Curiously, other folders were fine. There was no automatic backup of the folder itself (Win XP).

Fortunately I was somehow able to repair the whole folder, except for one file which was corrupted. I think you can guess which one it is.

Oh well, I’ll just restore from my latest manual backup (5 Jan) and edit back the main progress I’ve done since then :-/
I really should do more backups.

I just finished world 7 without picking the powerup and another run picking it up and not using it, but the trophy is still locked. There must be something more.

Battery charger card recharges too slowly

Not sure if it's intended or not, but with the battery charger card running, the printer energy is still depleting faster than it is recharging.

(I just saw I somehow lost 2-3M+ energy "units" and was wondering why)

Note: I have the permanent ascension perk enabled (money printer speed x2).
