Same here with the new update… for some reason I had to rebuy some of my cash upgrades too.

After you get the ‘copied to clipboard’ message, open up a microsoft word document or notepad and then right-click and paste.

Sorry, but it is true that you don’t get spent AIs back. We’ve never been getting them back. Ever.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Angel Investors bug.

I’m not very certain about what you’re saying, but I think this is the sequence of events?

Original: 1.075 trigintillion AI
After spending on upgrade: 75 duodecillion AI
After soft reset: still 75 duodecillion AI + potential 65 duodecillion

… That is correct. You’re not supposed to get back AI after you spend them, which is why they warn you when you spend a high proportion of your current AI.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Improvements for Micromanaging/Anti-Idle

I feel that penalising a player for anti-idling is pretty absurd. I mean, I understand if you have to stop and cooldown after holding the progress bar for a few seconds, but actually forcing a player to ‘rehire’ a manager (especially at the current insanely inflated prices) is a bit extreme and kinda discouraging.

Especially due to the problematic implementation of the feature. I hate it when the red bar suddenly jumps forward because it makes it very easy to accidentally overshoot, which makes penalising the player for that even worse. It’s also hard to concentrate on the red bar when the green bar is blocking it and going really fast.

Not to say that I dislike it though! I like AxSNatsume’s idea of boosting the speed of the corresponding shop when a certain number of “successful clicks” (95-99%) are made. But again, I hope that this is implemented based on skill instead of luck, which means removing the random jumps and making it always easy to see the progression of the red bar.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate cannot be taken seriously anymore, where is it going?

hundreds of achievements

Kong has over 2000 if i’m not wrong. As far as I know Kong has exactly 1000 badged games now, so…

exp that lets you unlock avatars

Besides the default ones, weren’t there contests and stuff that had avatars that you could change to? But I don’t see a lot of people using them so I don’t think new avatars are something people want very much. Unless it’s for bragging rights, in which case having your level besides your name in the forums would be enough.

exp guild

I’ve always thought of Kong as aiming to be more of an open, relaxed, friendly community. Guilds would divide the community to create competition, which is also cool, but I think it would go against the current general feel of this site.

BTD5 has aprx 100 achievements

Isn’t that too many achievements for one game? That only makes it 1. condescending and 2. annoying. Condescending because it’s like ‘oh dude, you know how to press the space bar, that is such an AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT WE MUST THROW A PARTY NAO’ and annoying because you probably have to repeat stuff that you’ve done, like ‘congratulations, you got gold for this level! Now try doing the level worse a few more times to get bronze and silver too!’

That said, I think it would be nice to be able to unlock stuff with levels, like the ability to have profile skins hint hint although that would probably devalue K+ a little bit. Maybe a game skin (to replace the black box that frames the game and chat currently)?

Topic: Forum Games / Real Nice Riddles

I consider cars and planes to be made of metal, which can’t exactly be dead, while my impression of ships/boats leans more towards wood than other forms of transportation. I can even give the full reasoning behind how I arrived at the answer, if you want it.

Also, I’ve never seen that website in my entire life.

I’m sorry for cluttering up the thread, spissilly, this will be the last unrelated post.

You know, Zzzip, the fun of a riddle is in figuring out the answer. I would appreciate it if you didn’t mock the work I put in into figuring it out just because you yourself are unable to do so.

I wouldn’t have known the first one, but pretty sure I saw it recently due to FGF.

I think the dead and the living thing(s) are different. Is it a ship? or a coffin, but that doesn’t work out so nicely

Alright.

I think one of the ones I pointed immediate suspicion of being rogue is a rogue, because they were the immediate ones to point out that they were TM, before anyone else so they wouldn’t even get any suspicion on themselves. After that, they would act normally, and since their goal is to act like a TM, yeah.

If I was rogue(or scum if chat mafia), I would be the first myself to declare myself a townie(or share my false results if dethy) so that I wouldn’t be able to get any suspicion on myself. Most people would look at the evidence, then disregard me as a bit less suspicious than the other. So, I strongly believe one of Dragon or Racefan to be the rogue.

I see. But I think that you would have to take into account individual playing styles and timezones. What if, due to the timezone, they just happened to claim being a TM before others? Also, I would like to point out that this is not a mafia.

I advise TLs to share any information that they have. Once we all have both TLs’ information, give it a few days of careful guessing, and the rogue will be obvious. TMs will not claim to be a TL. This not only hurts their chances of winning this game, but they will be quickly outed as what they give will clash with other information, given as we are, like devourer says, clueless.

The rogue will not claim to be a TL. If he is believed to be a TL, he will not be put on actual TLs’ lists (since TLs don’t switch sides) and he won’t be able to win anyway. If there are still 3 TL claims, actual TLs can put the other claimants’ names when submitting their list and if it turns up as correct, that person is the rogue.

After outing the rogue, TLs can just put all 8 TM names on their list on a round (a possible guess due to fluctuation) to find out who was on their team then, and guess the next round based on that. Repeat until you are lucky enough to win.

But since helltank has planned something, it is unlikely that we can use this without at least a few tweaks.

Topic: Forum Games / [Story] Fields of Honor

Thanks. I agree with you as I also don’t think that it’s possible to transfer a whole thread to The Arts. However, in my opinion, the fact that it is currently here should not discount it from the possibility of being moved if it is in the wrong place, especially now when the thread is not very long yet. Additionally, except for Firespread’s Mosyle and your Drakan, most of the other posts are just talking about where this thread should be placed, so I do not think that it would be much of a loss to lock this and move on, re-pasting the parts of the story that are here on a new thread. Being interested enough to create a character, I think you and Firespread wouldn’t mind copying and pasting it in a post on the new thread, or DaHumanitarian could also do it himself and add a small note acknowledging that you two created them.
