Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Cannot buy any cash upgrades

I have the flashing too. I don’t intend on sacrificing my angels again until after that’s fixed. It’s seizure inducing…

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Rendering Fault

Yes, me too, as well as all of the people in this thread.

I thought it would end with the end of the candy canes, but apparently not.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Athena is the godess of WISDOM!

Ever read the Iliad or Odyssey? Athena is a God of War. I agree she is primarily the goddess of wisdom, but those epics do show that she takes pleasure in Odysseus destroying his enemies. I don’t know if this is exactly ‘bloodlust,’ and it would be nice to have a smarter hero helping us, but it’s not completely inaccurate.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / What does HyperHippo Owe us?

Literally the only “bug” was the exploit people were using for massive gold boosts. If that’s what you’re talking about, then what Hyperhippo TECHNICALLY owes you is a roll-back to before you cheated.
Otherwise, they owe you nothing. Stop being ungrateful for this free game.

Well, that’s not the only bug. Here’s a game breaking one that they haven’t fixed yet:

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Glitchy screen

This issue hasn’t been easy to reproduce. We have one our devs who repros it at home on their Mac by switching between tabs. This might seem like an obvious thing to try, but can you clear everything in your browser’s cache? Then quit and restart the browser with just AdCap in a single tab and nothing else? Let us know the result. We are definitely looking into it, just hard to diagnose.

On your advice, I tried this on Safari and it did not solve the problem. The game is essentially unplayable now. I’ve been putting up with it, but the unlock/achievements screen is so messed up that I don’t know which ones I actually need. What’s the point of playing if I can’t even tell if I’m making progress?

Fixed.

There is an achievement for Anti-Idle: The Game. It could be the only one for ever though.

Farm of Souls and technically Kongregate Chat the Game are the other idle games on Kongregate with badges.

THIS!!! This bug is absolutely awful and seems to be affecting a noticeable percentage of players. Can we please see some developer response? I’ve spent Kreds on this game, but and I’m putting up with this game breaking bug until it is fixed, but I haven’t seen any sign that there are plans for it to be fixed or that the devs are even aware!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Glitchy screen

Bump! I’m on a Mac too, and have tried safari and chrome. Neither make any difference. Since my first post, I have started getting candy canes luckily, but sometimes the upgrade screen is so broken that I literally can’t see any of it. I just have to guess where the buy button is.

I notice that the export option is currently unavailable. I imagine it has something to do with this thread…

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Glitchy screen

Yeah, I thought it was just me. I’ve tried in two different browsers and everything seems messed up. The green bars and the upgrade screen are completely broken, and I noticed I’ve seen zero candy canes or presents even though it has been 24 hours since the update. I don’t know what’s going on.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Where'd My Multipliers Go?

Okay, now it is showing it correctly for me. x18. I don’t know if it was me not being connected to Kong or not, but I guess everything is okay now :)

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Where'd My Multipliers Go?

I had bought several 3x multipliers (I think 6, maybe?), but now with the new update, and the introduction of gold blocks, it says my total multiplier is x1. Did the new update remove anyone else’s multipliers, or am I looking in the wrong spot?

same here brother, well not really the same, or brother, but you get the point, I started several months ago, like 10 I think and I barely touched it for like 9 months, came back, saw there was an epic new layout, and loved it, the oother one was a bit grey and dull to me, it’s a lot more lively now, and I perfer it this way, I don’t know if I’m the only one who believes this or not, but it was pretty boring and that’s the main reason I didn’t play it.

You think you started 10 months ago? It came out May 30, 2014. I think you are mistaken.

I’ll be honest… the game isn’t as fun as it used to be, probably for unexplainable reasons. I’m holding out for one more update. I probably would be gone if I hadn’t already used my Kreds. But, let’s see what Hyper can do to win us back.

I don’t see the exponential income increase at this level that would take me from my income in the trestrigintillion to the price of 100 Newspapers, 20 sextrigintillion. What we need is for the newspaper achievements to continue every 25 of 50. That would give us the extra boost to feel like there’s an end in sight, even if it still takes a while. I don’t see a way to continue making progress, honestly.

And then imagine there are players who dont invest any kreds… Progress is just so slow, in the quat/quin area the interest in the game fades slowly away.

Yeah, that’d be crazy. I probably would have stopped if I were in that position, but I have invested in this game (sort of. I haven’t spent any actual money ever on Kongregate, but I had gotten enough free Kreds that I thought I’d spend it on something I was enjoying. I hope that they continue to make it worth Kongregate’s money).

I also just noticed that the jump from 2200 newspapers to 2300 isn’t as much as that same jump for the car wash. I need 1.15 septentrigintillion. And no manager is going to help with that.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / 100x Buy Button Request

Nay, definitely nay. Seriously, just look to see if you have enough money. It doesn’t actually speed things to wait for the full 100 when you could be investing that money as high as it goes. I like it the way it is.

Actually that is not 100% true. It does make a difference in non-late-game. It is often more efficient when upgrading a full 100 and gain the achievement bonus multiplyer rather than upgrade 70 and 50 of other investments (just said some numbers, but you get the point).
Besides, in later-ish game (I’m about second Googol upgrade..) the non-scientific numbers are quite confusing. I often mix up the “(almost) random-string”-tillion is now below my current unit or already the second next, and so on…

Don’t get me wrong.. I really might be lazy as hell… But this is just one feature I would love to see (as the whole thread started) ^^

I guess what I want is a “max” button. If they change the way the x100 works, and especially if they do it to the 10x too, if I only have enough to pay for 99, then it’ll take me 18 clicks to do what would’ve taken 1 to buy all 99 of those. That’s why I think changing it is a bad idea. I guess someone accidentally buying only 73 or whatever when they would’ve preferred waiting for 100 is preferable to having to click a ton to get the 73 when you want to buy 73.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / oh gods please scientific notation

I actually really like the names of the numbers. More than that, when I tried scientific notation in Clicker Heroes, it looked so cluttered I had to change back. I have no problem with them adding it as an option if other people prefer it. It seems ideal for them both to be available as clearly people have different tastes.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Everything Wrong with this Update

I agree with the problems mentioned so far. I’ll add one so small, it is really inconsequential compared to everything else on here.

When I click on the picture of my character, and it pulls up that extra menu, it has a banner with my lifetime earning level (in this case, quatturotrigintillion). However, the banner is too small for this word and cuts of the n at the end. Just thought I’d post it somewhere.

Like I already said, there’s more pressing issues :)

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / UPDATE

To those a few posts above: I’m on chrome and it is working for me.

To everyone else: There are a lot of problems with this update. Most other people have commented on them, but the thing that I hate more than the childish design and the awful UI given that we use mouses instead of touch screens is the fact that when I’m comparing which business to buy, THE STUPIDBUYAPPEARS AND COVERS UP THE PRICES EVERY FEW SECONDS!!! Why would they do this? Why add another moving part to add lag and actually slow people down from playing?

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / New Update Lack of Scroll Bar: Terrible Design

Yeah, this is really really obviously made for touch screen users, which is awful for those who are on a mouse. They couldn’t have included a scrollbar too?

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / UPDATE

I don’t know when it is coming, but I know I’m starting to get impatient. The last update gave me the upgrades I needed to get over 2000 in everything. Now I only need to log in every few days, honestly, to reset and then it takes 3 minutes to get everything back above 2000 and start again. No motivation to play at all, really. And I was really enjoying this game, so I hope the update comes soon.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Went from easy to hard after ascension. Why?

I was dumb and reset several days ago and went from 150 or so to 220 souls. Everything was sooooo slow after! But when I realized what people earlier in this thread said, it made much more sense to stay playing without resetting. And if I were to reset again, right now, I’d get + 254 souls. That’s more than twice what I have now. Why? Because each time I get a primal boss, they give me 30 + souls. Wait 30 minutes, and dark ritual allows me to kill it. That’s way more than you’ll get from restarting from level 1. You’ll get, let’s say 10, from hero levelling and then you’ll be fighting the primals in the 100s. They give 1-4ish souls, which is nothing. Continuing in the same universe is the way to go.

You get:
-Gilded Heroes
-The endurance achievements (High gold, high hero leveling, etc.)
-Tons of souls from primal bosses
-Resetting wouldn’t get you to where you are much faster, so you might as well stay.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Bugs and Glitches

I don’t know if this is true all the time, but I had exactly 493d gold, and the cost of my 998th Forest Seer was also 493d gold, but it wouldn’t let me buy it until I got another coin. I guess the Great Seer had some additional charge several unseen digits over or something like that. I have a screenshot if you need it.
