Topic: Idle Online Universe: Support / Echos?

Apparently there was someone named “Echos” in your party at the time and he/she hadn’t met the kill requirements to advance to where you were trying to go.

Kicking people who join your party would be helpful. I sometimes try to farm with friends and all of a sudden a random person will join and i’ll be shot back to an old zone.

Turning “Allow Joins” off or, better yet, setting up a join password should help. Those features are in the Options gear on the top right of the game screen, next to the sound and music buttons.

Not an exploit, it’s intentional. The AP is on the button because it used to cost AP to respec.

At the moment you can’t, but maybe if you ask Ray, the developer, he might for you, if you ask really nicely*.

*There’s no guarantee he can or will.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Support / Challenge Boost

I got the reward, but it still said that the challenge failed

This results in receiving all the rewards, except for the damage increase, as you’ve noticed. Fortunately, completing the appropriate challenges again will rectify the situation.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Discussion, Feedback, and Suggestions / Can't respec ascension points anymore?

It still appears for me and, as far as I’m aware, it wasn’t disabled nor are there any plans for it to be. You’re clicking Upgrade > Ascension (the purple button), correct? It should now be on the bottom right side of the game screen: Reset Points for 0 AP. If you still cannot find it, try refreshing. Maybe if you’re in a party, try leaving your current one or switching to a different one, as that may be causing the issue.

Edit: Seems to be somewhat of a widespread issue

How does rested time work? What is it for?

For every two minutes offline you generate one minute of rested time, up to 6 hours worth, in which you gain a bonus of 50% gold and experience when you log back in. It’s a good backup if you cannot be online all the time, or if somehow you get logged off, but it’s not something to try for.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Discussion, Feedback, and Suggestions / How to get cards???

To answer your question, no, but don’t worry too much about cards until Ascension Tier 3, also known as Inferno. There the drop rate increases significantly to 1 in 500.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Discussion, Feedback, and Suggestions / Unlock the Suggestions List thread

To be honest, I was actually considering suggesting that after seeing the bugs encountered from this latest patch being discussed in chat, but I was unsure about being so strongly opinionated in such a short amount of time. But yes, I do think it would also be a good, and familiar, format for Kong users.

Unfortunately the board software that kong uses is not ideal for that purpose.

You just have to get years of experience posting here and then it’ll be ezpz *winkwinknudgenudge*


But seriously, thanks for listening and trying it out.

Also, timestamps would be nice.

Timestamps for guild chat would assist in better coordination. Just yesterday in guild chat someone asked for help with challenges, but I wasn’t able to tell if they posted that hours, minutes, or even seconds ago.

Related to that, a certain amount of previous messages, much like a message board, should be retained in guild chat, and even party chat, so a login seconds after a message is posted doesn’t leave one ignorant to what’s happening. This would also allow for refreshes, disconnects, or anything else without fear of losing understanding of current topics. Better coordination on guild activities among different timezones and lifestyles would also receive an immediate benefit. One could read what was planned and/or said before they logged in or lost chat for whatever reason. Thus they could knowingly and actively participate in the aforementioned activities.

The same setup could be used, just retain the messages and add timestamps.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Discussion, Feedback, and Suggestions / Unlock the Suggestions List thread

Unlock the Suggestions List thread so there’s a centralized location for users to post their suggestions. This will reduce the amount of one-off suggestion threads that arise, which will make it easier for everyone in the long run. Users will be able to see if someone’s already made a similar suggestion, post their thoughts about previously made suggestions, and see the on-going progress of everything. The developer(s) and forum mod(s) will have everything in one simple place and won’t lose time scouring the forum. The OP can be edited with an up-to-date list in development and/or suggestions planned for later updates. Suggestions from the past that were implemented could also be listed if desired.

With all that said, I’m contributing to the spam.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Support / Account Issues

I just experienced the same issue with the challenges.

Edit: July 19 and 20 – Didn’t receive any rested time. [5 days total where I didn’t even receive the notification. It’s getting to the point where I’m just not enjoying the game as much because of the consistently hampered progress.]

1) Not in the past 24 hours, though I’ve been purposely avoiding them. Guess I’ll start ramping ’em back up. Yep, I did.

2) Nice to hear.

3) Same ascension, same support, 1.5% higher from altar for him, but 20 levels higher from VIP experience boost for me.

4) Cool.

I can’t say they have improved.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Support / Account Issues

July 10: I began getting booted from challenges upon the first strike, but the fellow challengers claimed I was still there.

This is still happening at an almost seemingly random pace.

July 11, 12, and 13: I was offline for roughly 10-12 hours each night and didn’t receive the rested time upon logging back in. [I did notify Ray of this.]

This seemed to have resolved itself as it has been notifying me properly, but tonight I didn’t seem to actually receive the bonus experience. [Elaboration below.]

July 15 and 16: For the past two days, maybe three, I’ve been partied with the same person while I’ve been on. There’s not much else to provide on that. We were password protected for 12 hours nonstop each day.

Card drops:

Yesterday we farmed 1-1 Inferno 2 the entire time. He started with a slight edge in cards and, by the end of the farming, he had increased the difference between us. Maybe it was bad luck for me.

Edit: He started with 27. I started with <15. He ended with 87. I ended with 38.

Tonight the exact same setup, but 1-2 Inferno 2. He started with 13. I started with 0. He ended with 103. I ended with 32.

Edit v.2: +another 10 hours. He’s at 183. I’m at 50. [I’m not updating this any longer.]

No, he doesn’t have the 2x card drop bonus. [Neither do I.]

[Edit: This is with the Double Card Drops event, as well.]

===

Partner assisted with the following part: [Still my perspective, though.]

After night 1, we were both roughly around 50% through level 135. I logged off for the night and my partner went on to group with someone else overnight.

Starting day 2, I was at halfway through level 135 and my partner was 50% into level 136. We grouped together for 12 hours, and at the end of the night before logging off, I was 10% into level 138 and they were 50% into level 138. [Rested time almost caught me up to match my partner’s grouping overnight.]

Starting day 3, it showed I had rested time and my partner estimated that I would catch up to roughly the same. [I would be at 10% into level 141 compared to their 50% into level 141.]

Instead they are 50% into level 141 and I’m at 70% into level 140.

Thus I didn’t get full, or any credit, for rested time from last night.

[In our short time doing the math {28 minutes}, he received four more cards to my zero.]

===

Experience points:

Yesterday, at the start of farming, he mathematically figured what our levels and percentages would be around at night’s end, including my rested time. He was spot on. Maybe a lucky guess.

Tonight, at the near end of farming, he said his estimate didn’t end up like yesterday’s. I’d have to agree, it doesn’t seem like I cut into his lead like I did yesterday, which brings me back to where I didn’t seem to actually receive the bonus experience.

In summary, he said it sounds like my RNG is broken.


I figured I should make a thread in the proper place for this, especially since the list of irregularities is constantly growing. Any check to make sure everything in my account appears to be running normally would be greatly appreciated and would put my mind at ease. Maybe it is just bad luck oddities, but I’d rather ask than actually have something broken and hindering my progress.

Topic: Kongregate / About Today's (7/15/15) BoTD

It’s a game room, not a public chatroom.

You make it seem as if game-rooms aren’t public chat-rooms. Didn’t you get the gist of what OP was asking?

It’s just that game is using Kong api, which also comes with a game chatroom.

Uh, plenty of games use API and not all of them have a game-room.

I mean why not?

Imagine if every game that used API also had its own game-room.

a lot of games on Kong have their own chat because everyone is allowed to use Kong’s API regardless of the games nature

What? Okay, but that didn’t answer anything, especially not OP.
