Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Monstermind] Bug Reports

- First loading stucked at 75%. Refreshed & it worked.
- Then stuck in a loop in tutorial saying ‘whoa there’ and to repair my town hall although I did that.
- No way to skip tutorial at that point → reloading game. Working now.
- Another loop. This time with the hotdog stand and collecting money. Waiting 2 min. collecting coins again. The task stays the same and the collect coin countdown resets to 2min ea time I hover over the stand.

Alright, nice graphics. Auto-collect coins would be good I guess, also way to skip tutorial for those who rather learn by doing, moving around the map with arrow keys maybe.

Well, it seems like the glitches are still working.

Topic: Red Crucible / Unity keeps crashing

Same here. Win7, FF. 15-20 min or like every 2nd game without leaving and rejoining. And yes, the other Unity games work fine here as well.

If you see someone using an exploit. Quit the game, rejoin the game, and hit the space bar until you get “their” view. Then record the view as proof, post it on the web, and report the link here.

A7 Autobahn:

1) The ability to access out of bounds via helicopter on the right side (from Blue facing red). Players can not be targeted from “in bounds” in most cases. I find that if you can use the forward blue tank to get on the roof in front of it, you can still call an arty strike down on them. Otherwise, blue has to use their own helicopter to strike them.

2) The ability to eject from a vehicle touching the underpass wall to get “inside” of the bridge. Like #1, you can not be targeted. Worse, you have a MUCH better view (especially of Blue). I haven’t figured out how to counter this one yet other than to join the opposite team and call them out.

Please list others so the developer can fix them, and since they are an exploit, PLEASE report them to the developers.

@ 1) could also be fixed in a different way. The map is quite narrow. Extend the boundarys to the east and west for both teams, place some trees on Red’s side and you get equal sniper chances plus the ability to use airstrikes or artillery on them.

@2) agree

Edit: and here’s your 3) on A7:

Topic: Red Crucible / glitch of guns

Yes, renting the SA80 worked fine here. After renting it appeared in the inventory. Drag-n-dropped it to primary weapon and it showed equipped.

Guns that worked ok here so far:
- SA80
- L1A1 scoped
- M21

Guns were I had a glitch:
- G3 scoped (also showed in inventory, drag-n-dropped to equip, but no changes on the character animation and no changes in-game. M16 instead)

Topic: Red Crucible / glitch of guns

Thx for the tip. Renting the SA80 worked fine here. Nice in mid/close range. Good for charging. Mediocre for long range sniping IMHO, but decent weapon overall.

Topic: Red Crucible / glitch of guns

Same happened to me. Was renting the M21 for 24h and it was ok. Then I tried the G3/scoped and ended up with M-16.
Could even reproduce that bug on the G3, but I can’t find any link to properly report bugs & glitches we find.
Today I tried the L1A1 /scoped and it worked fine.

@fangyfangs: the dev might need some more input like which gun u tried to buy or rent.

Topic: Red Crucible / Zombies? Sounds like a good idea ADD EM

How about if you die you respawn as zombie and try to omnom brains before the survivors blow off your head.

Topic: Red Crucible / List of known issues/bugs so far

On A7 map. Get in chopper, land behind blue spawn on the mountains, destroy chopper. Enjoy sniping without enemies being able to reach you there.

I think you’re looking for the secret entrance where the snail says “I knew there was something weird about that tree!” You can destroy the blocks of that “tree” and enter the rooms through the ceiling where the “tree” goes into the upper map.

I was thinking about putting war-machines on there, so you could choose your own aircraft, but money would be a problem. Thanks for the suggestion, I might put it into future versions.

Yes, the idea of having war-machines carried by submarines is nice, though. :) But if I’m playing blue and spam bombers and fighters I can easily break red’s “air control” and take out most of green’s navy during the first turns. Blue AI isn’t that vicious though and easier to kill for two people teaming up or evn 1up.

Alright, Urban. Dunno if you guys have tried to fix anything, yet, but it’s now working for me. Didn’t try anything since my last post. Weird glitch. :)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] What's the deal with "Reason 2"?

PS: if this is any help: the gamecode itself seems to be loading ok. It goes all through the steps (loading, resources, data) until initiate connection. Then the Connecting to Server message comes and turns into Reason2.

Also tried it on Firefox 3.0.14. Gamecode loading fine, but Reason2. Java, cookies etc enabled, popup disabled. Didn’t help.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] What's the deal with "Reason 2"?

Hey, Urban.

I got Reason 2 since today. First time ever since the game was launched. I enabled port 9898 in my FW, but this didn’t help. I switched off the FW completely leaving just the Virus Protection on and it didn’t help either. Maybe there’s more to it than just the FW issue?

IE6 Win2k SP4, latest flash and sun java

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] Ranked for player maps

Good idea. I hardly play ranked these days, because the scenarios are the same and it gets kinda boring.
There’s quite some good player maps out there like Earthbound, Qll_New Base, Into the dragon just to name a few. I even dig “adventure” style maps like Road to death.
There’s also some good 2 player maps that are quite balanced and could be featured for a rank match. Anyway I support ideas for more action :)

A buff cap is the amount of Mods (Ie Blitz) a unit can have. Currently, its 4

Alright, thx. Yup, I agree 4 is quite enough.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] Scripting Help?

Hi, all. I’m playing around with the scripting feature and my idea was to create a classic mode scenario where Player 3 defends his ground for a 10 turns until reinforcements arrive.

So I thought the “startTurn” condition should be pretty useful for this, but unfortunately it doesn’t work. Maybe I got something wrong? Have a look, please:

[script]
[event]
    [condition type="startTurn"]
     [player value="3"/]
      [round value="10"/]
    [/condition]
[response type="createUnit"]
      [x value="4"/]
      [y value="4"/]
      [type value="Strike Commando"/]
      [resources value=""/]
      [player value="3"/]
      [fadeIn value="true"/]
      [parallel value="false"/]
[/response]
[/event]
[/script]

If I try this script without the startTurn event the unit is built immediately on first turn, but with the startTurn nothing happens at all.

I’m puzzled. :(

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] More Maps For Non Members

I agree with Rilus. Maybe make the first page free2play, but not more. Members would benefit from it as well, coz free players would rate these maps, too. If you got just 1 highest rating map free they might rate the map low on purpose, hoping that another map bumps up on #1.
Also more players might stick with the game as it would become less boring.
