Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / 100% in under 1hr

Just got my last achievement a few minutes ago with a 6x multiplier (decided to put my leftover kreds to work here after adcap’s outage). I’d guess that even people with no multiplier can expect to be finishing the game in the next week or two.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / End of game very anti climatic... Needs a patch

The way I see it, quitting freemium games is always a win, especially if you accomplished what you originally set out to do, or are leaving when you realize the fun you get from it is less than the time you put into it. This game’s really casual though, so I see no harm in keeping up with what’s new in it.

Perhaps you are new to the ‘freemium’ model of gaming. It is: “You never win, you only play until you decide to stop paying/playing.”

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Why do people have to cheat in this game?

Interesting post, Muskar. What’s strange is that I’ve had the feeling that cheaters think that others are jealous of them when they get called out, but I could never understand why they would think that. What is there to be jealous of, if anyone can replicate their results with some little trainer or program or macro? Cheating in a game means you give up your player identity, although to be fair this game is very lacking in player identity in the first place. I guess maybe using my own experience of jealousy is a bad metric, since I don’t seem to experience jealousy in anything, though. Do some people get jealous of cheaters when they know they’re cheating?

I never understood this. I always thought it would feel really sad to feel superior to others for something that is a lie.

This may be a stupid question, but have you been buying angel upgrades? If not, it would be a good idea to start.

Why did you make a whole new thread about this? There’s so many kids complaining about the same thing on different threads, it’s just getting annoying now.

Cool story. Maybe instead of complaining about other people complaining (oh the irony), you should contribute to the thread.

You know, you don’t get any points from complaining about complaining about complaining. I ain’t even complaining, I’m just passing on pertinent information.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Failed to Update Unity Web Player

Brother’s computer has been having this issue for a while, with all Unity games. It runs XP though, maybe that has something to do with it?

Topic: The Gate / why day 7 reward is lower then day 6?

I think I saw in the patch notes that the gold portion of the rewards on day 1-6 were only added in a later patch, and I’m guessing day 7 has stayed exactly the same. It’s funny how the only game that seems to have a system where the week’s rewards don’t go back to 1 at the start is the game where we wish it did happen.

I wonder if your post inspired them to double the price for this event, or what’s going on there exactly.

Topic: The Gate / How to play this game on LINUX Ubuntu

This game uses Unity, not Flash. If Linux supports Unity, then you should be able to get it running without problem after installing the unity player.

You can google unity web player, or (apparently) just download it from http://unity3d.com/webplayer

Topic: The Gate / Using 10 golden scrolls at one time?

So I’m still pretty new to the game, trying to feel my way around.

So a single golden scroll allows me to purchase a premium summon. Does saving 10 of them allow me to get a guaranteed R4 and buy 10 at once?

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Do you like the new design?

I didn’t like it at first, but I’m starting to adjust.

I hope the HHG team knows that users of games/sites tend to get needlessly bothered about UI changes, and eventually come around and maybe even like the new designs better. Admittedly, I don’t like the scrolling cost when it comes to purchasing an upgrade, though.

This sort of poll would be a lot more meaningful around a week or two from now, maybe even a month.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / The capital V in the title?

Originally posted by Bassplayer19:

Venture capital refers to startup money given to a business.

Also, in economics, the people who give the venture capital to a new business are called… Angel Investors.

More pertinently, a Venture Capitalist is someone who invests their funds into a business with the hopes of getting a return on his or her investment.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Do treasure chests "spawn" while in offline mode

My guess is no, but I don’t have any proof to back that up. I just assume they’d make the offline mode gains calculation as simple as possible, ignoring chests or any other chance variables. My guess would be that it ignores the %chance to get 10x gold too, or whatever that one ancient was. Then again this is me assuming they were lazy or inconsiderate with the design, and it’s possible I’m wrong.

Originally posted by olinn:

iirc, someone cracked the code and the odds of getting a treasure chest as well as the extra gain was calculated into raw gold per/time ratio that was added unto the DPS*highest zone calculation to get the total offline gain, but i don’t know of mimzee and dora have an effect or if it’s only the base odds and extra gain that’s calculated.

Your both wrong, while your not playing chance to get a treasure chest and/or 10x gold are just 4x lower… so you can still get them its just really rare and doesn’t even make that much of a difference

Originally posted by Draelokk:

as the title says do you get the chance on chest spawns plus the bonus gold from them while the window is closed, so basically does mimzee and dora actually give an effect with the window closed?

The answer is… YES they do help (sortof)

I’m curious, what makes you say the chances are 4x lower? I can’t think of any logical reason for that being the way it works. Do you have any source for this claim?

Also “you’re” is a contraction of “you are”. “Your” refers to the subject possessing something. Like “your underwear” or “your mother’s basement” :D

Originally posted by koval92:

Not only. I checked that powersurge crashes idle game too, so it’s most like every skill = end of being idle. That’s major thing to repair because skills are useless that way

Power surge doesn’t crash idle DPS boost for me. Neither do any other skills that don’t themselves click or cause me to start clicking.

Yeah, screw these guys for forcing you to read their posts and do math rather than letting you play the game in peace!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / My game buged out.. Help

That’s the error message that usually tells you that something is frozen/unresponsive. Waiting a while tends to make that message go away on its own, but maybe that hasn’t been the case for the OP.

They said it’ll be in 2-3 weeks after the last update. You guys are ravenous.

Apparently “within the next couple of weeks”, posted on the 11th (four days ago). I guess it’s taking longer than they planned initially.

Originally posted by Tyca:

What if you have 3 dragon towers and a unique mirror? Fuse two dragons to make a yellow. Then fuse mirror with a green to make a yellow. Then fuse those two yellows. Would that yield a perfect one? Or an imperfect one?

A perfect one, as far as I can tell. At least the evolution bonus will be 45%. I did this today with an infusion tower or whatever it was called.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Micromanager is TOO punishing for early game

Originally posted by Schattensang:

Also the cost for rehiring is really strange. It costs 132 novemvigintillion when you want to rehire with 1850 news papers. And they give 23 octivigintillion per second for me. But it just costs 388 novemviginitillion when I want to rehire my manager for Oil Companys, but they give me 32 novemvigintillion per second. That just doesn’t make any sense at all.

The cost to re-hire is based on the cost to purchase 1 building (80% of it, or so).
