Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Kred Refund?

I have no illusions about a refund being realistic, but I’ve learned a lesson, and won’t be donating money again, to this or any other developer.

It’s not so much “placate the masses” as it is “trying to piss off the least amount of people as possible while updates take a million years”.

Listen – I worked a bunch of years in a very big corporate setting, and it always bugged me that I couldn’t be up front with fans and critics. So now that I work in a little corporate setting, I’ve made it my personal mission to be as honest and “real talk” with my dear Capitalists as possible. If anything has sounded off, it’s probably because I’m not allowed (contractually) to talk about something and I’m doing my best to skirt around it. But otherwise I try not to sugar coat stuff. I fail sometimes. I’m just a guy helming a strange boat through unexpected waters.

I honestly can’t say anything regarding refunds because (honestly) I don’t have that power (I checked). Please do query for one though, if that’s how you feel (I believe strongly in voting with dollars). All I’ll add to it though is that big improvements and new content are on the way. I wish we could turn this stuff around faster, but c’est la vie. If you’re willing to wait, we won’t make you wait much longer.

<3 you guys. Sorry stuff is taking so long.

Well now I feel like a terrible person! Thank you for your noble and honest reply. It’s made me realize what it must be like at the other end, and that I was too quick to condemn (it was just grumpiness to be honest). I don’t really want a refund, and I’m still playing.

The only observation I have is that success seems to be the most difficult and dangerous time for any venture. It must be a bit bewildering and panic inducing – like, OMG this is our chance, we’ve got to get it right, but how? So, I’m sorry for being a grouch, and wish you good luck.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / What's making the most profit for you?

My 1400 banks make 2.756 septendecillion/s, followed closely by oil at 2.536 sept/s, donuts at 2.450/s, and lemonade at 1.584 sept/s. Everything else is sedecillions or lower.

But oil will soon be my top earner. I need 5 more newspapers to get to 1050, when my oil will increase to 12.68 sept/s.

Topic: Technical Support / Badges aren't being awarded.

Same issue. I’ve done 3 easy badges in the last 3 hours, but none of them were awarded, and no high scores were recorded. I’m using Chrome.

Topic: Technical Support / How to share Monster Legions army?

I just can’t figure out how to share my Monster Legions army. I know it must be simple, because so many people have done it. But (because I’m stupid), I need help.

Thanks!

Topic: Kongregate / Name this game!

There’s a game somewhere on Kong I need to find. It’s a series of gem swap battles. You are a dog or a cat, and you battle various monsters. You do battle by swapping gems which causes you to attack, defend etc.

I can’t find it. Been searching for ages. Can anyone help? Thanks

Please see this thread:

http://www.kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/58995-where-do-i-buy-kreds

Basically, I am unable to log on to buy kreds. I want to to give you my money, but it seems to be impossible.

Oh, how ironic, Phishface.

Indeed…

I’ve done the following – none has worked:

logged off, cleared cache, logged back on;

refreshed the page numerous times;

logged off again, cleared cache and everything else, logged back on;

had ‘remember me’ ticked and unticked;

had the page display non-secure items, and not.

Basically, the page does not recognise me, no matter that I’m logged on to the site.

I really want to buy some kreds…

Details:

I’m signed in. I click the link to the buy kreds page. On that page I’m not signed in. The page looks weird anyway – all the light grey menu links are at the top (and I mean all of them – menu titles and sub menus). Some of them are covered up by the buy kreds box. The whole thing looks like a broken web page. The big red button to buy kreds with is not clickable. Filling in my sign in information does nothing.

If anything, it looks like a phishing page…

Right, this is strange. I go to the page, where I’m not signed in (though I’m signed in here, obviously). And I can’t sign in on that page – nothing happens.

Is this because I’m not in the USA? Or…?

This no doubt sounds silly, but I can’t find any link to the page where I can buy kreds. Can anyone help?
