Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Compass Fields

What is up with the field with the compasses? I have obtained the “secret compass achievement” already. Even so, there is so much prominence given to these fields on the map that I wonder whether there isn’t some other use for them? Maybe someone here knows something about it?

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Plan for upcoming Kongregate badges!

I definitely get the sense that there are two different types of comments being made here: those that buy the pouch and/or extra shadow cores (who seem to think everything is too easy) and those that have spent many hours grinding their way to even get to the gem of eternity. Since I have yet to see a pay to win badge myself, I would think that the suggestions are good as initially suggested. Another good suggestion is the impossible badge for all the Vxx battles – those are extreme and the same for everyone.

I did see a few comments comparing this version with previous ones. For those of us that, for whatever reasons, cannot pay for pouches/extras – this update is very different! “End game” now has many different meanings and are not comparable. Still a fun game though.

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

I just finished using Magi Alt 1 – it was really bad – too slow getting the attack up before Magi kills you. Prime was ok but Alt 2 was much more reliable.

I have added a new definition to the glossary. I just want to gauge the reaction to it. Scroll to the section of M’s. Common Abbreviations/Acronyms

Let’s start by picturing a scene from Harry Potter: Even when Draco’s Malfoy’s father bought the entire Slytherin Quidditch team Nimbus 2001s, they could not beat the raw talent of Harry Potter. Now picture Crabbe going up against Harry. In case you don’t remember, Crabbe ends up killing himself with his own spell. That is you!

Plus, I found some interesting things about you on the high scores, so I must call bullshit.

You may call BS on that highscore, aswell as skill books and career level. I honestly have no idea how they happened but it is quite annoying.

Coming to a court room near you some time in the future. “You’re honor, I honestly don’t know how those stolen items ended up there. I only used them because they were there already. Would have been a waste not to use them at that point. Right?”

Tech Lights Improvement

I am using the fertilizer check of the Tech Lights. I currently have everything max fertilized.  The light telling me that the fertilizer is ready stays ON.  While this may be technically true, it is pointless and should remain OFF.

Pet Mana no longer goes up

It's been almost a week now that my Pet's mana has remained at the same value despite having a fully leveled Pet and Pet Trainer at level 190. "When your pet is not sleeping, 95% chance to get +5 extra pet mana every 5 minutes". It's possible that this problem has been around longer because i was busy feeding it and did not notice.

Fair suggestions. I’ve done this once before and it worked out just fine. My problem here is that I didn’t realize it would mushroom in size by this much – I might not have started it. Now that it’s here, however, I’ll just have to ask people for their cooperation.

@Kazeto, I apologize for making you feel like I was brushing you off. A better phrasing would have been, “please hold off on the comments until I am ready to deal with them”. I will be doing a “partial release” very soon and I will be less anal about feedback at that point. Thank you for your feedback in the mean time. :)

@Everyone, please hold onto your comments, until the particular section you are interested in is officially released. Thanks.

I just want to add, while I’m at it, that the abbreviations for CHAOS armour (“u12” and so on) in this guide are … kind of weird. Most people use u17 to mean u17, not u12; the same about u20, u25, u30, or u-whatever.

Thank you for your input, however, this guide is still being reviewed and not for general use.

Thanks Axiss. I finally got around to using your input. Thank You.

Just one explanation for you: my links are mostly for internal use and i will set them properly when i am satisifed that the TOC will no longer change.

Possible Memory Leak Idle Fishing

I have tried idle fishing twice now (the version before 1699) with an anti-junk rod.  In one case i came back to a "grey" screen flash bug display.  In another case I came back to a very laggy response.  In both cases, the idling was limited to about 4-5 hourse. In both cases, refreshing solved the problem.  I suspect a memory leak because I've never had this problem before but with the idling rod.  I also monitor my PF Usage from the Windows Task Manager and it showed above average usage.  This is the first lag problem I've had since revive pt.3


EDIT (Feb 3,2015): I have not seen this problem for a while now.

IMPORTANT NOTICE 3: it is NOT and additive bonus as some people still think.
IMPORTANT NOTICE 4: the actual chance to get chips is about 10% for epics and much worse for rares.


note 3: it is NOT “an” additive bonus
note 4: the link is not working for me.

Intro
The theory about how this works is explained in the rest of this post and “The Caps” post. The “Examples” post follows the theory to show you how calculate the balance for a specific mob. (the wording in the second & third sentence is confusing) (remove the third sentence and emphasize “balance” in the first sentence of the exec summary.

I suggest that you pull out the Exec Summary into its own first post. The NOTE’s and Credits can also go in this first post. Let everyone read it and then have them skip the theory (in their own separate 2 posts). Use the “gereserveerd” to push “The Items” down by one post.

If you italicize “DropRateMultiplier” and “DropRateCap” (all the variables that you define), this could be helpful.

Math intermezzo
The goal is to maximise the product of multiple variables. This case just 3 or for this example, only 2. <— this sentence is confusing. be very explicit in your wording when you are using “non-evolving” examples versus “evolving” examples. and try not to mix their use together – keep them separate
when saying “tier”, say instead “bonus/equipment tier”

The Final step is to fill the equation in, which is the only step you guys need to do yourselves, besides looking up the variables that is. ( remove this sentencd —> )I’ll demonstrate by an example in the section below under calculating dropratecaps

Examples – Evolving Monsters
The wording confuses me. First the values you have are no good, then you calculate stuff, then you get the same numbers as before and now they are good ??


I just had a thought (idea). This whole calculation thing lends itself very well to a spreadsheet. Identify all the “source” information required in very specific data entry boxes – for people to plug in the values. Show the result at the bottom. You would have 2 separate sheets, one each for evolving and non-evolving.

When in BA and clicking around, for instance to check random quest and cyborg, I notice that spirit is below maximum and buff is changed to either “boost” or “enrage”. Is it possible that clicks are falling through “Complete Quest” button?

I think I’ve noticed this kind of behavior a couple of times myself. I would not remember the specific circumstances though.

This is an answer to a fishing question. Hopefully someone can direct this (or tell me a better place to post it). If you want cyborg to help you with the fishing 50M score in one day, he needs about 10,000 Cyborg Points to do it for you. Get cyborg started on this just after day rollover. I had full fishing skill (30+) when i did this. Keep some CP in reserve in case your stats don’t take you as far. FYI: This goal gets you one of the fishing rods.
