Topic: General Gaming / Submachine 8!

Lol, it’s true that the game is a bit small, but I think the author did that on purpose, because he’s offering a special downloadable version with fullscreen, and he had to make this game comparably small to make an incentive to buy the version. Same with savegames.

a very easy to make achievement would be one for getting the golden wall clock, or playing 768 hours. that wouldn’t need any art apart from the hat. pls tell me what do you think.

well, technically it’s possible, there are 29 achievements, I’ve got 26 achievements without cheating, aside from the secret shop one which isn’t available, there are the secret map one (possible) and the lvl 200(?) one (also possible, but very difficult to obtain). the problem is that that player doesn’t appear on the list of high levels, so…

SPIFF, the same happens to me with the balloon hat (#26), I’ve fished like 200 maps and it seems that the treasure avoids me since I found it once :(

so, if the developers could make the hit box of the treasure a bit bigger, I’d appreciate it !

And:

Hats will never have individual effects.
For now, the meditation garden won’t be getting any extra upgrade options.
Market prices are based on your current level.
Exp scaling for fishing should be here soon, probably as a purchasable upgrade.
The house is unlikely to see any improvements right now.
It’s likely that the exp shop will become available at level 55.
We’re gonna have a free VIP day at some point.

if you want, you can include this list in the first page so that players don’t come asking for these things and to clarify their doubts.

@itsme0

actually, i like more your idea than mine. Level 10 needing the same exp as level 100,000… is a bit stupid :P

the current formula is 100 × 1.15^(lvl), that is, increase of 15% with respect to the previous level. This is an exponential formula, so it is like the bank interest, it grows without limit. What we need here is either a logarithmic formula, like 10,000,000 × log(lvl), that grows increasingly slowly, or a linear formula, like yours, that grows proportionally to the level number (my favourite).

Of course, those formulas (formulae?) wouldn’t work for earlier levels, and would have to be implemented starting from lvl ~70 – 100.

well, I think it would be better to put a cap for every level, because the maximum amount of exp per time that one can earn from the most rewarding minigame, whatever it is, is constant. There fore, increasing the difficulty to go up a level without any cap would make levelling up eventually an impossible thing.

And whenever you want to add an upgrade to the game that changes this constant so that levelling up would be too easy, just proportionally adjusting the cap would rebalance the game again.

This is just my opinion, maybe other players won’t agree with me.

(sorry for my english :P)

finally, level 121! after one week shooting targets and meditating!! and still no hat…
even with the exp shop, I think that levelling up will become impossible (1919871620 exp to lvl 122!).

Ok, I’ll try to merge the images.

EDIT: Done! :)

Now there are only 2 hats left to complete the guide! if anyone has the last levelling achievement or the secret shop one, you can post the image of the hat and contribute to the guide!

SPIFF, if you want you can post the image of the balloon hat in the hat shop.

Suggestions:

Achievement for getting the golden wall clock (playing 768 hours). (this one would reward the players that play regularly the game)

Achievement for gaining a high amount of money playing the dice game (or other casino game).

More quests for the time the snails are kept away from the flowers in the meditation garden and the experience gained digging for the treasure.

Meditate xD

There are snails eating flowers. You can push them away.

This is the info tip in the map: Your fastbar exp is doubled by owning this map. Idling on it increases the bonus to four times, and you can further increase the boost for as long as you can keep the snails away.

SPIFF, the sol file is in C:\Users\ (your username) \AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\ (random letters and numbers) \chat.kongregate.com\gamez\0012\6674\live\pingy2.swf

To access AppData from your user folder, you need to be able to view hidden files (it’s an option in Folder Settings).

I’m going to update the guide with the new shark hat, but it might take me a while to earn the treasure map achievement, fishing maps is too time-consuming for me.

I think that the best place to do the first click and get the arrow is the center of the screen, because it minimizes the segment where the balloon is. Once you have the direction, the rest is luck.

I have a question: I got the map, I found the treasure, I went to the Hat Shop to buy the hat, and there was no hat. I suppose that I had to click it…

And now it seems that I’m not able to fish maps anymore… what can I do?
