Topic: Idle Car Manager / Quality Bug

I’ve been having a strange situation on my latest playthrough.

I’ve had issues in the past with lawsuits, even on the Alpha car.

On this last play-through, though I’ve removed the quality from my chassis and body, and kept it low on other parts to lighten the weight.

All (or perhaps nearly all) of my 20+ designs were below quality standards at the time they were built, nevermind 10 years later.

I have not had a single lawsuit this entire play-through. Every last car was below quality standards, and no lawsuits.

I’m currently selling a quality 26 car, when quality 34 is the standard. I’ve even had 85%(ish) braking or cooling efficiencies without an issue.

Times that I have tried very hard to keep quality high and stave off lawsuits haven’t worked, and they’ve caused me to go bankrupt several times.

It’s probably a game-breaking bug… but never meeting quality standards at all might be the best way to avoid a lawsuit.

Topic: Reactor idle / Gas Burner Vs Nuclear Cell

You are making more money, but you are not including the cost of replacing all of those generators at 500 million each, which was my entire point. Loads of powerplants also take up space, but heat exchangers do not require upkeep.

Anyway, you are are not even making more, because after deleting the heat sink, I was making over 400 million/tick with only 10 power-plants.

If global warming were a thing, you’d be the global warming Hitler! ;)

Topic: Reactor idle / Gas Burner Vs Nuclear Cell

You will need at least the first level of nuclear power lifetime to make them effective. Gas burners do hold thier own for some time. However, to advance you will need to switchover at some point.

One of the issues I am seeing here are players having way too many power plants, which reduces the amount of income they can generate.

With level 60 generators and L12 nuclear cells, I am pulling in 250+ million per tick from only 9 nuclear plants (and one lonely gas burner). I still have room to replace more than a dozen isolators with generators whenever I can upgrade my heat production.

Edit: A few hours after this post I put in a 10th generator which blew up my heat sink, but nothing else. So i added another generator, and I’m now making over 400 million per tick.

Topic: Holyday City / How can i progress with no more exp managers?

My advice is to stop restarting so often. With a little luck you should be able to use the vortex to keep up with the managers. More importantly though, I’m way ahead on profit paradox level and dock level than I could ever actually afford.

Let the profit paradox build up for a few days. It’ll pay off in the long run.

Topic: Wartune / Possible lag fix

This has seemed to do more to fix my lag than anything else so far. I wondered why flash was using 15% of my computer. So, I right clicked went to settings, and changed my local storage to 10MB. Wartune immediately demanded to be changed back. This has the effect of clearing the cache, but has also seemed to make something finally ‘click’.

Now flash is using 25-30% of my 16gb ram computer. I dunno. Just seemed to work. Try it. I didn’t even need to refresh for it to be effective after the cache filled again.

Topic: Wartune / PLS , i beg u R2 !

I still don’t understand how glow options or flash quality should affect a good solid computer so badly.

When I enter amethyst area alone, the place is lightning fast. I haven’t run so quickly since the first 4 months of the server being up. During event time, I’ve almost never moved so slowly.

In context, a lot of people complained about lag during GB when it was first implemented. My lag is on average 4X worse than it was then, but now constantly, in almost every area.

Topic: Wartune / PLS , i beg u R2 !

pfft, got 16 gigs ram, 3.1ghz 8 core processor, and 1.7 gb video card, Win 7 OS, 23mb/s download, 3.5 mb/s upload, and 7 ms ping on speedtest.net and still get horrible lag. This fishing game for example… half the time I click, my harpoon won’t launch, when it does, it hits an invisible barrier half the time that suddenly pops up. Fish are disappearing in the middle of my screen. It is taking nearly 2 full minutes to launch and retract the harpoon. It gets bad within 5 minutes of a refresh.

I was having lag before, but I just formatted my computer. I installed flash, direct X 11 and microsoft silverlight ’cause it forced me to, and started wartune. Massive lag. Tried more browsers, massive lag.

Archer Enrage talent is bugged. It says your next SKILL attack will be a crit, but it gets consumed on auto attack else well.

both those are old news, though I really hope they get fixed. I wasted a lot of vouchers back in the day to take scrutiny off, only to invest in enrage.

The bug I hate worst, and this has probably been reported, but at least as an archer when I use arrow to gain rage, I should gain `10 rage, 15 if it’s a crit.

The problem is, that if a mage cast BL at the same time, which gives 10 rage, it will steal the 15 rage from my attack. I have seen this correct itself after a rage building skill, but at other times it has not given me back the stolen rage too. Another way to do this is to attack with arrow and quickly use a rune. It’s when using the rune method I find I get my rage back next turn. However, in the meantime it still stops me from using an attack that I should have the rage for.

Example: I need to use deep freeze. I have 20 rage, and crit with arrow to gain 15 rage. The mage uses BL that lands around the same time. My rage flashes up to 45, then drops to 25, and I am unable to use the skill.

Topic: Wartune / Bugs post 2.1

I do think that the lag is a bug and has a place here. It’s not isolated. From what I see it’s 80-90 percent. People are using all sorts of crazy browsers to try to get around it.

The sound leaks are an old thing. The original sound leak was on thunderer, which made a scratchy sound as it hit, even if you have your browser muted in the media mixer of your pc.

New sound leaks occur during the Apollo victory cry. Not sure it is new, but tanks also does not follow the audio settings properly, and laser and spinal tap make such loud, awful noises I have to stop my music and turn off the speakers.

Topic: Wartune / 2.1 Lag - I am desperate. This is my cry for help

When I began playing wartune, at server launch, I could run the game for 72 hours without a refresh before I got crushing lag like I have almost permanently now. Before this latest patch bringing in sylphs, the game has never been the same as it was the day before. Not even navigating farms, or menus in city.

It used to be flash crashed occasionally. You could see it coming. Now flash never crashes. Instead a sudden fatal error shuts down Chrome in the blink of an eye. All tabs, all windows.

There is a real problem with the lag now. Somewhere there’s an error.

Topic: Wartune / Apollo so Balanced

With a green iris with a crit heal you can heal your full hp bar, and give a nasty AoE too. I’m also no sure how much elemental resistance plays in to pvp.

I do agree that apollo is OP in group arenas though, and can be in bg.

Topic: Wartune / Patch 2.1 (Bugs)

When chancing my sylph form at the arena, a sprite (Iris) got stuck on the screen when moving from one position to another. It stayed there atop everything until refresh. I was also unable to click through it.

would be easy enough, I’d think. Refresh should clear it…

Not that I condone dodging the intended function of the captcha or using bots.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Suggestions and Ideas

As far as I can tell, most any sort of macro you could make for this game would be quite complicated, and risky. Complicated enough to keep the amount of offenders capable of making such a macro at a small number, manageable by other methods. Risky enough, as in being likely to perform random, account tarnishing actions as to not make a macro appealing to use.

Everyone hates this. Please find another way. Maybe a minigame?

Topic: Wartune / [GUIDE]How to submit a ticket for Kong Wartune

I always get a reply within a few hours. However, they are always robotic messages promising some future assistance that never comes. These tickets have been everything from a complaint about a player making repeated, very bad pedophile comments in world chat, to a bug in spire that, when we completed stage 2, we got a message saying “VICTORY” and then spire ended, when we should have made it to round 9 or 10 easily.

Oh, and they have lately been asking me to post a you-tube video on every ticket filed, including the two examples above. For the first, I had screen shots, but those weren’t good enough. I told them I’m not willing to post pedophile comments on my you-tube account… As if the video would have been kept up anyway…. For the second, it was so sudden and suprising, that it wasn’t possible to start making a video- it would mean that I had to record all of my gameplay all of the time because I suppose 4 people filing identical tickets isn’t reasonable proof that there’s a screwed up bug.

Topic: Wartune / One-Click Astral Broke, cant get red astral from it.

I get 1 red astral for every 10 mil gold spent, approximately, and that’s doing it manually. I know for a fact that 1 click collect DOES give red astrals though. It also doesn’t have anything to do with the amount of points you have. It’s all just random.

Topic: Technical Support / Unable to buy KREDS !!!

I ended up here as well because the Xsolla site is down.

I should mention as well that I’ve tried boku many times, and despite having used sms systems in the past, this one will simply not work for me. The ‘sending text’ message gets stuck in the middle of the load bar and won’t progress. It has been that way for some 6 months. I am in a supported region. I assume boku does actually work, or has it just always been broken?

Topic: Wartune / [Info] Bugs

A few small bugs regarding inventory:

If you click sort, and then click cancel, inventory is sorted anyway. (I just noticed this one was already submitted)

If you split an item, and move the split amount to another page of inventory, it moves the entire group without a split.
