Yeah, really cool :) this unit is dubbed “BUG”, and is indeed rare to be found in good games, not just this :)

And yes, once you find such a BUG, weird things might start happening all over the place. You’d better reload the game, or the save.

It’s no hackz. All you gotta do is convert an enemy into ghost with the nyon exist, place it in the unit bank, go to formation editor and place it. Ta da!

Well, there exists a base with Villalobos inside, so hackz take place, and this base is likely a result of a hack too.

ooh, which base is that?

No modification. pure, vanilla redstone.
Though by “small computer”, I mean more like a pocket calculator and the most awfull fps you’ve ever seen outside of the nether.

Nerds will go to great lengths in the pursuit of turing complete.
Just search for “redstone computer”, you should get plenty of results.

Exactly. Just want people to know that I have no advantage of ANY kind, except the will & love for Gemcraft to not be bored by combining 10000+ times.

1. No speedhack
2. No macro(Don’t worry about me getting carpal tunnel syndrome, I take breaks & massage my wrists frequently, plus I’m young so I think I’ll be okay…)
3. No good interrupt cat….so it’s a disadvantage :D because…I think so far I’ve lost 2 whole waves of time from freezing, which sucks, that’s ~22k extra dmg for me.
4. 111 billion by wave 84.

Hey fractal, what’s the score timeline of all your runs, I’m curious as to how much more I need to practice to be like you(you’re literally my idol for all things GC0, along with vesper & einfanch).

aww, thanks!

But while I spearheaded the whole thing after connor gave up and called it impossible…
Though I figured out how much damage was needed to beat all them safely…
Though I made the whole thing happen, I have….never actually beaten all 228, and I think my best score ever was 300 bill. :sheepish:

People have made computers with redstone.
small computers in terms of processing power, gigantic in terms of effort required, but computers nonetheless.

Topic: General Gaming / ANY rpg games with NO LEVEL CAP?

Just to make sure you see it…dwarf fortress. it’s an individual-skill-levelup game, and the hp system is per-body-part, but there’s no level cap.

Just exponentially more training to level up unless you feel like dropping down a shaft of enlightenment, raising yourself to legendary+634235 in a weapon skill.

Just remember: LOSING IS FUN! MWAHAHAHAHA!

Topic: General Gaming / Rpg games that have no level cap

Dwarf fortress, adventure mode :evil grin:
ok, so it might only DISPLAY the first 10 levels, but internally there’s no level cap at all.

I recommend you find food to eat, seeds to plant, and rocks to throw ASAP. Grind throwing up to legendary and you’ll be good to go untill you run into a (SPOILERS!) with centuries of level-grinding under their belt.
Or, y’know, untill you make a mistake and wander into melee range of, well, a badger. heh heh heh.

No level cap, but just cause you’re at legendary+200 (legendary+5 is usually where most people stop grinding and start exploring) in all skills doesn’t mean you’re invincible….far from it…

Topic: General Gaming / Minecraft Sucks

minecraft isn’t bad (though, like with most games, I did get bored eventually), but you’d better be sure and bolt down your house with some sort of protection plugin like precious stones (pstones for short), towny, or worldguard…
at least, all the servers i’ve been on were quite full of griefers

It’s possible that now that the buzz has died down, the griefer population will also have gone down. not guaranteed, just possible.

Topic: General Gaming / Glean is a great game, are there any similar games?

um…well I’ll see if i can find it in 2-5 minutes of searching. it was… a LONG time ago when I found it.

edit: FUTZ.
Found it: motherload unlimited. I even made a post about it here on kong!
The problem? Now available only with download as far as I can tell, plus it uses an out of date java, so my security settings REFUSE to let it run from the hard drive. maybe later i’ll find where I put my virtual windows7 machine…(looooong story that.)

But here’s the download link anyways.

I recall searching for the string “java game like motherload” and getting one that was like glean+motherload+hardmode. I think I died twice before I figured out how to turn stuff into fuel.

, so after an order with Y L & R at top, what special comes next? Orange or Cyan is my guess but maybe something else?[/quote]
“Orange OR cyan” is very much correct (it doesn’t really matter), though even cyan at slot 8 gives plenty of shock chance per target; paradoxically, a lower cyan can be situationally more effective than a maxed cyan. Keyword is situationally.

actually, Red can go as late as slot 4.

Yeah. Much better start.

Yes, prismatic traps lag more per managain than other trap types; use R/O/X traps in front, followed by one lightly-supergemmed prismatic trap to take them out, so you can build up your damaging gems without causing more lag than desired.

Then, place them down and let things run.

If you play without speedhack, you kinda have to choose between score and beating all 228 waves.

Edited the previous post for clarity: I was referring to prismatic gem special-order.

In addition to what vesper said about the initial mana farm, you don’t actually need to have 15 splash in the r/o gem. About halfway through, someone discovered it’s actually active with even a tiny bit of red, it just won’t display in the infobox.

Topic: General Gaming / [GemCraft chapter 0] all 229 waves

when I (relatively) recently re-calculated everything in view of yellow giving its benefit to damage even within a trap, I discovered that grade 14 prismatics in all the traps produced enough damage, albeit juuuuuusst barely, and you still have to optimize them to have y/l/r in front and then adjust the color.

If you keep your current damage gems safe and try to fill up the rest with g13’s, you might have enough power. Might.

Don’t anger giants so much unless you’re chasing score, they take up about 2x as much rendering per mob, plus screen shake.
