Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Beyond 2.0.1 - FAQ & What to Expect

Well at least you listen to user feedback, but the charme of the old game is gone and the new version is just not user friendly at all. I keep missing having all data on one screen, now I have to juggle back and forward between screens. Also Motivation has waned for me, with AI in the quintdecillion range and generally just waiting for the next sexttrigintillion to buy one lemonade stand.

The new features aren’t that exciting to keep me playing here. I wish you every success in the world, but this was the last time I called up this game. Good luck ;)

No, the game has become boring and is dead.

A real fix would be reverting to the sleek classic version. More fat is not the solution.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / UI 2.0 - formulas changed / less income?

The fact is the former balance between Bank and oil (for instance) was about 2 for 1.
BUT, there are 2 achievements that Oil gets (in your figure) that Bank hasn’t [2750’s and 3K’s mark.]. So Oil has a relative *4 from achievements, and has EXACTLY twice the income of Bank.

Actually I didn’t change anything from last night, and until then the banks were my top performers with twice as much income than oil with Lemonade coming in third and being somewhat less than oil. Still I made much more money yesterday. It’ a shame I don’t have a screenshot of that.

I want my money back!

Bring back, bring back, oh bring back my old UI to me, to me,…

The best possible improvement: Dump 2.0 and revert back to the old version. Then put in new goals and achievements.

Don’t fix anything that ain’t broken.

Maybe it’s an Unity 4 beta problem?

I am aware of the new achievements, lol, but the income is now way different.

FF works fine. If you can call this clutter fine, that is.

Just scratch this and bring back the old version.

I am getting different figures now than last night. They seem to have screwed with the formulas as well.

Until now my bank was a bad-ass earner, now they fell behind Lemonade and Oil and even the video studios. It took some time to realize, though, because of the confusing display.

You ruined that game by fixing something that was not broken. Get your money back from whoever sold you that.

Counter-intuitive, overloaded, irritating user interface. Removed features, ruined the rest.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Some specific criticism regarding the new UI from a UX Designer

Good comment, Zoney. Doing away with the confusing bling is a must.
I’d like to add to that:

  • Bring back the menu bar for simple access.
  • Make essential information permanently available, reserve some screen space for that, too.
  • Keep it simple (has been said before, can’t be repeated often enough)
  • Restore the backup functionality. It was always nice to see whether a reset was worth the effort.
  • What was so bad about micromanagement? You could squeeze another stand out of that thing before closing it for the night.

This is an exemplary case of fixing something that wasn’t broken and is now ruined.

Whoa, wtf is this.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / 100% completion!

2 Upgrades to go (20 duotrigintillion and 1 tretrigintillion), 980 tredecillion AI with another 500 tredecillion AI in waiting, all shops well over 2000.

Still the game is dead, it has become plain boring to have to wait now that the sums are getting much, much larger. The micromanagement is amusing for a while to give me the odd xx trigintillion, but so what…

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Struggling at nonillion stage

I now have 980 tredecillion AI and from the beginning I went for all affordable upgrades in each reset. I normally reset when I can double the AIs, but always allow the sacrifice price for Angels on top. That way it’s not harmful at all.

It just gets boring, now with nearly 3000 of everything except newspaper stands… this game is dead.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / The devils challenge

Make it harder. Buy all upgrades with only 1 of each stand / shop / outfit and no managers. Make screenshots of your progression.

LOL.

Hey Capitalists!

Quick update: (..) Also – we tweaked Micromanagement to be more forgiving / profitable. Let us know what you think. And seriously, if you HATE this, send that feedback too. We’re just testing it out. There will be future upgrades that improve Micromanagement, make it better, faster, stronger, probably a future manager to do your micromanaging for you.

QED

… but I loled a bit. People nowadays are too lazy to read the game notes, it seems.

Keep resetting when AI has doubled. I’m at 45.540 duodecillion AI right now with that method.
