I’m sure we’ll be so happy in a matter of few hours/days.
If he doesn’t write anything, it must be very very very close.
He just doesn’t want to write a post like “10 more hours and you will get it” (or not).

I think Peter is working 18 hours a day to polish/test everything including payment and quests tests with ArmorGames. He must be extremely tired by now to write a blogpost.
But at least we can be sure to get it in a matter of days now.

well I rather wait to get a well polished product than a beta garbage.
do you remember the release of Diablo 3 or any EA product? meh…
I really want to play too, but I can wait for the quality.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Bug Reports and Issues

i assume the higher level dungeon quests should give better rewards, thereby i see flaws in the following dungeon quests’ 2nd/uncommon rewards:

Underground Hovel Lv.11-14: x1 Faery’s Tear
(because Faire’s Grove Lv.9-12: x2 Faery’s Tear)

Dangerous Fissure Lv.11-14: x1 Volcanic Rock
(because Hidden Passage Lv.8-11: x1 Volcanic Rock)

Abandoned Sanctuary Lv12-15: x1 Phoenix Feather
(because Troglodyte Cave Lv.10-13: x1 Phoenix Feather)

Peter mentioned raw video cuts (no divx or serious compression), so it must have been a ~2GB+ file in hd.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Anyone need help?

Endurance isn’t endless. It’s ‘only’ 1337 waves.
You get more xp when choosing higher battle settings/difficulties.
A basic-like endurance can be beaten around lvl100 if someone knows the right strategy (summon + LO in trap + LY in tower), but to beat the hardest settings endurance (in the G7 zone) can need lvl 1500 even for experienced players.

I wouldn’t expect so overpowered yellow and lime in GC2. So then the black gem can be much more useful than yellow.
We’ll see.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / gemcraft 2

As I read the post, I suspect, now we will use all colors in the game.
We do because the monsters will have powers and unique abilities, and the gameplay will be much more varied than just making a high-grade/huge manafarm and taking a break.
Well, it sounds logical to me to make Black & White types as some kind of “experience”-gaining gems. If I see it well, these ‘special’ colors will evolve the gems in a passive way, without user interaction.
Well, I think these screenshots are still just temporary ones, the 3×3 look will definitely change…

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / My first (and last) 1337 battle

Send all waves (CTRL+Click) was implemented in the final 1.17 patch (June 1, 2011).
When Gremlion wrote that (May 8, 2011), it existed only in hacked versions.

Topic: General Gaming / [GemCraft chapter 0] Suggestions for GemCraft 2: Chasing Shadows

don’t worry, I read it, and I talk pretty much with the developer.
unfortunately, most of the ideas are based on Labyrinth, however in GC2 the entire engine is rewritten, including many surprises ;-)
and some of your better ideas are already in the future plans, but keep them coming, there are some good ones.

Topic: Swords & Potions / Which recipes to buy whit the token's recipes sale?

without raremats:
Ronin’s Armor (bs+tailor) price ~10.000 (!)
Fiery Dragon (sorc+bs+carp) price 6000+ (!)
Sniper Rifle (sorc+bs+carp)
Shiny Shoes (tailor)
Seven Seas Shield (tailor+carp)
Soft Staff (carp+tailor)
Monk Armor (tailor)
(and of course, Celestial Pipes! – but i doubt that you can research it now)

Dont forget that Sniper Rifle and Fiery Dragon are in the same category, so the same costumers will purchase it. That means it’s better to get only the best one (FieryDragon). SniperRifle is optional.

Oyabin:
Holy Talisman is the best one.
(Perfect Jade has the same results as a suggestion)

honestly, in your case, i wouldn’t waste the precious tokens until i can get those recipes…
probably play a little more in these 3 days and you’ll reach some of them.
well, on the wiki you can see Research Lines for each items, but these are not always accurate due to the plenty updates and undocumented features.
but very close to the truth. if you still can’t research something, ask me ingame and i’ll tell any item’s requirements.

Topic: Swords & Potions / Which recipes to buy whit the token's recipes sale?

if i had a ‘smaller’ shop, i’d buy only the above mentioned “secondary” section.
most of the low-med recipes become simply ‘junks’ in the late game… and what’s more many high-recipes become useless in the late game.

(updated the list, probably there are some more)

yes, that’s a fair one – needed to research Vicious Crossbow.
in the end game it is the best suggestion for Enchanted Labrys.

primary:
Celestial Pipes, Vicious Crossbow, Flexible Plate, Courier’s Boots, Flying Shoes, Ronin’s Armor, War Priest’s Mace

secondary (for medium-shops; or for Adventurer suggestions in the late game):
Fiery Dragon, Seven Seas Shield, Shiny Shoes, Vicious Chopper, Vest of Lies, Holy Talisman, Murasame, Sniper rifle, Fast loading Arbalest, Soft Staff, Cleansing Staff, Wood Elf Staff, Crushing Sledgehammer, Strong Cleaver, Stone hands, Kris, Monk Armor…

Topic: Swords & Potions / Help on a recipe

you need to research Samurai’s Armor.
be careful, don’t rush, because researching Evasive Armor will keep 3 of your workers busy for 600+ hours (estimated).

Please check something.
Do you have two different cache folders in #SharedObjects with the 8 random caracters?
(can be a possible bug in Flash Player as many games are suffering from these strange save disappears – while cache folders seem to be okay)

Almos, so bug with Ritual’s bonus mana (it doesn’t added to manapool extend value) will be sustain forever?

Yes. Peter started the development of GC2. He won’t look back.
(but GC2 will be a big shot again.)
