Any way to configure a Tech Light to check if my Cyborg is doing something. Like to flash if its in recharge mode?

Hadn’t reloaded yet, so I ran through typing on v1664. Seems like that line used to say “upon, so you shouldn’t hack. It takes the fun out” instead of what it says there.

Probably checking vs the old line instead of the changed one.

@Omesh – Is there any trick behind that, or do you just have to feed the pet a crazy huge number of times?

Also, impressive work.

Not sure if this actually counts as accomplishing something, since all I did was idle fish for a month, but what the hey.

So close, yet so far.

AFAIK you can’t anymore. You might be able to grab the v1641 posted above, but anything more current than that wont work. Once the game is loaded in a browser, you don’t need the internet connection anymore (except for high scores/chat) but you need to connect to Kong at least once to get it started.

Unity update broke AdCap, clearly Flash is superior.

I get that too sometimes, usually when I’m nearing lvl 3000 in an Impossible Ascension trying to afford the Epic License. It goes away at some point, I think at lvl 3000, but I never figured it out for sure.

For mastering IA’s, your best bet is Anti-Checkpoint Necklace and Spooky Crypt.

And you can craft chips for all of the 2011 mobs, which will probably be quicker than trying to get them as drops.

Also, dont bump 2 year old, out-dated threads, and ask small questions like this in the stickied thread at the top.

I had saved up a bit over 120k CC’s for the free Imps in 1665, but I hit 900k AA rep and decided to blow through a few to finish that.

So then I decided to keep going, and see if I could max my career too…from level 184.

Something like 270mil career exp. I knew it was going to take a lot of my ~120k crates, but I didn’t think it would be quite this much:

All of which resulted in this:

1 Impossible and 14 Hard ascensions, and many other things. Probably could’ve done it all within a 24 hr period as well, but due to how extremely exciting it is to chain-run AA’s, I could only manage an hour or so at a time.

Next time I do this, I really need to remember to take some before pictures…

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Why this Update blows! (V 2.0)

Haven’t read the thread, so I dont know how much of this has been covered, but here’s a list of things that have rustled my jimmies so far, in no particular order

-When the prices keep rolling over to say “Buy” or whatever the thing does, its annoying as hell. It takes less time to figure out the function of that button than it does to wait for Buy to scroll away so I can read the damn price. At least give me the option to turn it off.

-The “til’n” abbreviation is dumb, and doesn’t even save much space. Again, give options to turn it off, or maybe give us the option for scientific notation like people have been asking about FOREVER

-Achievements and stuff popping up in the lower left block the Donuts. You have a nice big chunk of space that’s blank down there, why does it need to stretch that far to cover the donuts. Visibility > that stupid bit of styling.

-The buy 1/10/100 thing sucks. So now with this system there’s a 50/50 chance that I’ll have to double-click the button to get what I want. That is superior to the old check-boxes, how? I’m sure someone spent a while making it look just so, but its just worse than the old system. Also badly placed since its in the same spot as the X to close windows, so if you accidentally double-click, or have a shitty mouse, its constantly changing what you wanted.

-Scrolling in any window – not everyone uses a tablet FFS. You could at least put a regular scroll bar on the side for normal people. If you scroll down the upgrade list to see how much further upgrades cost, its almost quicker to close the window and reload the game than scroll back up.

-Achievements window – just an estimate, but I’d say that over 50% of the screen is just meaningless static crap, leaving just a little bit for the huge achievement list. There’s 367 of them, and you can view 24 at a time, so you have to scroll over 11 times to get from top to bottom. The text box only needs 2 lines and could be much smaller to accommodate another line, and go at least 7 wide if not 8. Also, why blank out unearned achievements? How do I know what to go for? And if its just all 2x or 3x, whats the point of the secrecy?

-Upgrade window – just to mention the crap scrolling again. Seriously, what the hell. And with so many items on the cash list there’s noticeable lag every time you open it. Also IMO move the Angel Upgrades to the Investor tab, since there isn’t much point to it otherwise.

-Stats window – you could maybe give some sort of indication that it scrolls sideways, I dunno, hovering arrow or something. Everything else scrolls vertical, but this one gets to be special horizontal because…..what? Also, its a page for stats, and you know what stat I really would like to see? One that everyone would like to see and have been asking about for a while? SHOW ME MY $@^%ING OVERALL CASH/SECOND

So yea, overall much worse interface, but oooh there’s more colors now. I commend you on your stylistic choice, but I just think there were concessions to gameplay and usability in order to force the style, and its just not worth it.

Hey look, another stupid argument started by a Starscream being a douchebag. How new and exciting!

Why can’t we ignore people on these P.O.S forums again?

You take increasing drowning damage the longer you are in ED, and when it ticks it just gives you -1 combo, it doesn’t reset to 0. If it happens again, check your Current Feature tab in BA, and it’ll likely say something to the extent of “Death Penalty Ignored”

Never noticed personally, but looking at the Drop Mechanics guide, it looks like it has to do with Stat/Ring drops. If you get the buff extension from either drop, and have a buff over 60 min duration, or something besides Power/Reward/Mastery, you get Arena EXP instead.

IMO horde your RF’s unless you really need the Coins/GP. When v1665 comes out, you can feed a lot to your pet, and also trade them in for extra GP to unlock AAG plots faster.

Well thats handy I guess. Though I swear I tried it last ascension, which was an imp, so I should’ve had 301, and it didn’t let me buy.

Whatever, I’ll take it! Thanks for the answer.

Can anyone explain this to me? As of 1664 you need 300 Temp Perk points to buy the Ultimate set. I have 74 Ascensions as pictured, which break down to 16 Impossible, 26 Hard, and 32 Medium. That should work out to a total of 16×7 + 26×3 + 32 = 112 + 78 + 32 = 222 Temp Perk points earned.

But I just bought the Ultimate set….

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Rebalancing Discussion

Is this system going to be time-based, or exp based? To use some made up numbers, lets say I gain 1.0T BA XP, and the multiplier goes down to 0.90×. Does that number come back up after a few hours, or does it stay down til I gain 1.0T non-BA XP? I mean, I guess the progress bar turns time into XP, but which one would matter for this DR system?

Also, I know its usually a rather taboo subject, but can I ask what the timeline looks like for v1665 release? I’m not asking for an exact date so I can call Tukkun a liar when its not there by then, but I’m just curious what the ballpark is. Are we looking at a matter of weeks? Months? A whole Martian year? Just curious.

Whats the best green bonus for mining pixels, +Pixel or Ignore rocks? For some reason I have it in mind that Ignore Finalizers is best, but that’s based entirely on a vague memory.

Also, I’m using an Unob Pickaxe, Crystal Armor, and mining in HC Triangle Land. Any suggestions on improving that? And again, really just after Pixels.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / 300%-400% anti-idle speed

Unless you plan on doing an ascension completely though progress rewards, I doubt its worth it. And if you are doing that, you probably won’t have 1.3mil BC to spend anyway. For that much you can get a couple days of rested and 1.5x XP/coin through LB’s, or like 50k+ Insta-progress through PB’s.

If you actually get them when you complete a hard ascension, whether you bought them in the first place or not, then definitely dont buy them, because a hard ascension isn’t that hard. But that sounds like a bug, you should just get features back, not complete new ones you didn’t have.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / MEGATHREAD: Battle Arena

This turned into a bit of a textwall, so TL;DR – I forgot how to play the game, have a u20 set and trying to figure out what next.

I’m coming back to this game after not playing for most of the past ~7 months, and only idling a few days at a time when I would play. But now I’ve started playing again, and while I’ve kinda gotten my bearings again within the game, I still dont have much of a direction to go in BA. I have some u20 gear, the old version HBB set I used to get it all, a collection of r500 weapons, G5, most crafted trinkets, and a lot of crafting supplies sitting around. I’m just not sure what I was planning to do next, nor do I know if I had a plan to begin with.

I’m thinking that the next step for me armor-wise is Dragon/Demon from ED. In fact, it more or less has to be, since I’m many ascensions from the Ultimate Set, and I really dont think I’ll ever do any sort of WM CHAOS again, so I wont be getting the u25 or whatever Apoc mode is. So, what I’m wondering is what level of Dragon or Demon do you need to reach before it starts to become an upgrade over u20? Also, can you reach those floors with u20 gear, because that’s all I have.

For a weapon, I mostly use a UIS finalized with ~2500 Atk and sadly only u3, but it kills most stuff in the face pretty good. I do have a ULS though that’s fully leveled, just needs enhancing, and I’m not real sure what to do with it. I want to unique it, so I’m not just going to throw Atk on it like I usually do. I’m thinking 3-4 speed rocks, bringing it from 12 to 20, and maybe a crit rock, but thats really only +5, what to do with the other 5? Accuracy? Growth rocks? I plan to use it mostly for Casual/HC ED, not WM, but its going to no doubt be mutli-purposed. But I’m going to spend the time uniquing it, so I want to make sure I get it right from the start.

And then for acessories, what’s good to use nowadays? My neck is an Unob Pendant with u10 from old SC, dunno how hard that is anymore. Is it still good, or is the new Immortal Pendant with its u20 better? And what about the element pendants, like is the Light one worth using in SC? And on earrings, are MBR still good? I dont think I’ll be making any Awesome Earrings anytime soon, so is there any other real option? All of my good ones expired, so all I’ve been able to scrounge up is Round ~140 Power/Exp. But the plan is just get higher level ones of those, unless I’m missing something. For Trinkets, I have Empowering and Rage Gem that I swap around, and some Mega Triangles that are mostly garbage. Are there any new upgrades on that front?

So does anyone know what I should be focusing on now? I’m thinking the best upgrade is probably uniquing a weapon, but that is going to take a while. And at what floor does ED stuff start to eclipse u20 CHAOS? These seem to be my two long term goals, but if anyone has any suggestions/corrections I’d love to hear them.
