Topic: Pocket Starships / A guide to utilize and work with a tooler

Good guidelines. As with everything truly good, they build on common sense. I just wish we’d get DPs for healing during PvP…

Maybe you should contact Kongregate. They have much greater leverage than any individual player like us ever will.

Topic: Pocket Starships / Todays update..

I am not blaming Afro for Spectacle Games’ poor performance – but for his/her own. I try to place blame where it truly belongs.

Topic: Pocket Starships / Todays update..

If they don’t realize our “whining” means that we want to play the game, and that we are sad and furious to see it destroyed like this, there is no help for them. Maybe we could buy the code from them for two bucks and a used taco after they go under.

Topic: Pocket Starships / TESLA --> cheater --> refund

Just went to see the official forums. Afro is a stupid, arrogant, immature jerk. If this person is representative of Spectacle’s attitude, the game is dead. It may still be up, but it’s dead.
Spectacle Games, wake up. You put a lot of effort into the game and created something with potential. Too bad your customer-facing side sucks major camel balls. Paying customers are used to being treated with respect, and to getting their money’s worth. I have seen neither so far.

Topic: Pocket Starships / Todays update..

I add my two cents: I’ve only been playing for about two weeks and was really excited. The update seems to have made many people upset; I will still play, but I put my irl spending on indefinite hold, as it seems the game will probably die. Too bad the customer/public relations are so screwed. How about asking for opinions on planned changes? Now you just have a huge disappointment/rage on your hands. Did you make the game for people to have fun? Apparently, this is no longer the case. Did you make the game to make money? Well, good luck with that, as without happy gamers, there is no money to be had. Good job, you just shot yourselves in the foot. Repeatedly. And you’re trying to pretend the gaping hole ain’t there. Congrats.

Agree. (Configurable) hotkeys are something that would definitely help, now it feels a bit clumsy.

Topic: Outernauts / Support Issue Thread

Lunar and Fuel Caps

So. Bought the cap increases (+1k fuel and +50k lunar). So far so good. Harvested fuel and lunar above the original (999/99,999). After coming back, the amounts were back down to the original caps. This does not happen in 100% of cases- sometimes it happens after a simple refresh, sometimes the higher amounts last overnight or even longer.

Anyone else having this issue?

Ticket submitted, too.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Esgrima 2] Cash items fubar'd?

This is namely about the mining ticket.

It’s probably not bugged per se, but whenever a “kind soul” trades you while you are mining, the mining stops and can’t be restarted (meaning I have to at least re-enter the mines) thus wasting the mining ticket. Poof.

Naturally, I am hesitant to try it again.

Anyone else with a similar experience?
(Also, posting this as a bug ticket.)

Topic: Legacy of a Thousand Suns / Doomcat's and SReject's scripts to make raid links readable in chat

I’m sure those scripts would be extremely useful… if only they worked for me. I have Vista, FF w/Greasemonkey, and the installation of either of the scripts goes without a hitch (I uninstalled/removed the previously installed one before attempting to install the other).
Doomcat’s script does absolutely nothing for me, it doesn’t even create the tab.
SReject’s script creates the tab – so far so good:

…but once I click it, the whole chat window is screwed up, and no script commands work, I can’t click “Options” or “About”, either. (also, the tabs disappear so I can’t click back to normal chat):

And yes, I did reload the game AND restarted the browser.
…any ideas?

Topic: Call of Gods / New goals can't be achieved

About the 50 alts: how the hell do you do that without breaking the ToS?

Also, not awarding the goals you apparently already completed is yet another fail. Now I’m talking especially about purple heroes. As I have about 10 oranges, this goal especially seems poorly thought out. I’m looking forward to a solution.

@dsinc: Meh. We are the playtesters, don’t you know? Only I have to wonder how many people will be further turned off by this latest botch.

Topic: Call of Gods / Arena Score Problem

Well, it seems the event further aggravated the amount of alts. Good job, CoG.

In other news, a player was heard stating “This last event is a total bust. You are forced to either cheat and create infinite numbers of alts to farm the gift boxes, or get left behind those that do. All in all, not an event that promotes fair play and the spirit of sportsmanship. When you think about it, CoG was never about these things in the first place, so I guess they think it’s okay.”

What can you do about it?

Hi, please clear the cache change another browser then try login again.

Okay, clearing cache worked. Why didn’t I try it myself?
Thanks.

Topic: Call of Gods / Tome of Valor

Have you ever gotten a straight answer to a question of this type, Jay?
“We’ll check it out. We’ll pass it to our dev team. We’ll…”
Can’t be helped, I’m afraid, it’s all the same with MMOs. They’ll fix it when they get to it. Events have priority, imo.
Also, they have to be aware of the issue – which they are now.

What’s the best way to get rep, in your opinion? (I’m clueless, I got 31rep somewhere and have no idea where…)

Topic: Call of Gods / Game Play screen "Zoomed"

I find that (on FireFox) pressing Ctrl+MouseWheelUp helps. It increases font size, as well as the window in which the Flash app runs. I haven’t found any other way so far.

Topic: Call of Gods / COG fockup story

Not that it’s any business of mine – but wouldn’t it be better to show your “solution” and demonstrate your customer-friendliness publicly?
Especially if the complaint was raised in the forum, simply saying (and with bad grammar, too!) “Hi, I have replyed him in the private message yesterday. Sorry for our carelessness again.” leaves a lot to be desired.

This approach is symptomatic of a certain type and origin of games… from a place where people still don’t understand (or care) that the customer is the king. But, to be fair, this is a common malady for all the MMOs I have played for any length of time…
