Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] CLOSING

(btw the original kixeye team from casual collective, made 2 excellent other games i really enjoyed, faragomate and buggle connect) hopefully they will remain (and function) and have enough people to enjoy it like before.

i wasnt the best on that buggle game, but was rather good – challenge me sometime lol and if were online at the same time… game on :)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] CLOSING

(when i first saw this page by jrmatt, my first “hunch” was that BYM was simply leaving Kong to move over to FB due to some money deal)

i saw bym before, and i think also on the casual collective site, years ago too and it looked pretty good, but the only reason i never played it before was because the only way to play it was to join facebook (and i didnt want to be forced into a facebook account just to try a game).

the good thing about kong is that you could come here and start playing most games straight away, and that
eases you into playing the game and maybe later its up to you to make an account on kong (if and when youre ready) to be able to add comments and chat etc, and also for games that remember your progress in the game.

I only played BYM because it was available on kong, and i dont know if i’ll be persuaded to switch over to FB for it though :)
i’d only make am FB account if it suited my own needs, not to be forced into it.

my hunches have often been right, however, i wont jump to my hunch as to why Kixeye decided to pull the plug on kong, as i still need to read all the other threads and posts for more info etc,

but i do know the unfortunate truth that sometimes a developer needs to make a seemingly drastic move, because we had to plan a closure at the moment with our own “Ultrawars” game next month for extra server costs :o( but we did not have enough players yet and our game is still new…. i guess kixeye has loads of players though :)

all in all, and in simple terms…
-if the kixey decision was the only way to stay alive as a company, its unfortunate but understandable.
-if they did it to simply take a bigger slice of the pie for greed reasons etc, then its not that good
-and if they were forced into it, by you know who, (and cant divulge why) then theres nothing really else to say. :)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Bugs/Problems

hi ford, you have got more levels than me so far :)

we can check the calculations too, but could you also try mousing-over (and clicking) on the little blue storage symbols that are near the top right of the window (just to the lower-right of each main resource)?

eg SPgold, energy, workforce and equipment.

when you click on it, it will bring up an upgrade popup (but will hide all others and just show you storage-related add-ons)
(if it shows you a page number when it returns the list, please click on it in case the window needed a refresh)

does that help at all?

Topic: Collaborations / Kongregate Changes to the Collabs Sections

hi i skimmed over that long post and it seemed it was mainly the files.

(i could understand if all those graphics and songs took lots of server /hosting space etc but hopefully they can keep all the forum posts there as text at least)

either way its always a sad thing when things are taken down, eg if you remember the aol galleries from before etc.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Bugs/Problems

thanks agburnaar, (i just updated the front page comments with this but also pasted here as related)

hi guys, we tracked the problem to the recent server crash which also affected a server clock. we are still trying to analyse data and account usage etc (which will take some time) but the main continuation of tickers should be working normally again and any remaining negative values for a few remaining users should clear up back into positive by tomorrow approximately. – thank you for your patience.

Hi guys, the stamina and resource buildings should be back to usual numbers again now.
if you can please refresh your game window and try again are you still seeing the same problems now?

thanks,

update notes:
The countdown Timer when building a new formation for Air unit, or Ground unit, currently shows a normal positive countdown.
Just made a rhino unit formation, and in few minutes, i hope to have an air unit built…)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Ranking

hi mrbeaks,
do you mean the battle score ranking (as shown in the Prizes to gain / Monthly Contest)?

or for the Ranking when we level up in character?
(if for character, almost everything you do gives you some eXPerience points, and every time you gain enough XP you reach the next rank level)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Bugs/Problems

Thanks Stilgar,

for the building upgrades bug:
sometimes ive had a flash cache issue depending on my settings, (when i refreshed the game in base mode, such as clicking on an ally’s base, and then on the “home” base button to return to my base it would fix it). Sometimes a few of the upgrade pages for buildings might not update until i clicked them again or went to another building page and back again, but if this keeps happening we can try to see how to find a better fix.

The “minus values” bug is definitely a bigger bug :o)
Sorry about that bug, please bear with us and will try and get this sorted out asap.
I also saw my own stamina change from -83 to -82, as well as the resources value and % values,

was the % value also showing minus for you?

for the Super structures / Special Buildings:
I could not spin yet as the countdown timer was over a day for me too.
you are right about time travel… (hopefully we are not hosting the game near the bermuda triangle) :o)

Something else affecting the countdown timer is also seen in Base Mode when you are visiting an Ally’s base to collect more Ally Power Points from their buildings. (seems related to this too).

Pease bear with us and will be addressed soon as possible.

thanks,
rygonia

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Suggestions and Ideas

hi walshie, thanks for the suggestions.
i think there are a few random items that also drop/appear from time to time, but not any temporary speed boosts to stamina i dont think.

i will check and add it to the task list for further review

thanks again :)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Bugs/Problems

hi mrbeaks,
would you be able to have another close look at your ranks, and to see if it has increased since?
the server had a few issues last week and may have not been able to catch up when you saw it.

if you can please also let us know what your rank shows before you complete a new mission, (and your local time please) and again after you complete a mission, it would be useful.

thanks
rygonia

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Suggestions and Ideas

hi ffoiii, thanks for the feedback,

on the stamina topic, if someone is only doing quests, it could seem like a lot of stamina is being used – especially in the early level ranks, before we start to gain permanent stamina regen bonuses from special buildings etc.

i can see that you mean, though if we salvage a large object in the map, such as a jeep or ruin, that also requires a proportionate amount of stamina, and both are quite rewarding in themselves i feel.

if a lot of quests could be quickly completed within a day, then it wouldnt take too long to completed them in elapsed time, and its usually when playing over time that we start to see more trading with players and other upgrades etc. (which reminds me i have a few spares for trade….)

(of course that assumes that we can find all the quest items……i am still looking for several of them and i havent been able to find them yet) :o)

i will also make a note for you about the sound settings to see if something can be implemented in the game as a toggle switch, which might be able to be applied the the game (globally for both Battle mode and Base mode)

btw i you need a hand with ally slots to unlock those special buildings let me know and i’ll paste you some other good ally’s i know – meanwhile, i’ll send you some supplies ;)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ultrawars] Game Allies

hi ffoiii :o) – I added you to friends list so that we can be allies too.

Allies can send and receive extra supplies between each other, and can also be used to unlock Special Buildings when you level them up for bonuses and extra unit reinforcements. We can also trade unit equipment upgrades with our ally’s if we get any 2 of the same, and can also visit an ally base to collect free Power Points too.

To get more allies, mouseover a players name in chat and ‘Add to Friend’, and they can become an ally.
You can also invite more friends on kong that you have, and ask them to become an ally in the game too.

hope this helps a bit but if you still need a hand let me know :)
