Topic: Technical Support / Badges stay grey (I do get them)

Ahh okay, that picture helped. It is probably the same issue then. When I click that achievements tab in chat then they do indeed update. That includes some of the new progress indicators actually showing progress as well.

Topic: Technical Support / Badges stay grey (I do get them)

I’m not sure how clicking it would help. When I hover over it so it expands, the checks are still grey. If I click on it to go to the achievement page, and then from there to the same game, or going back, checks are still grey. Unless I am missing something, none of that seems to fix the issue for me.

It might also be worth noting that the best so far things and new progress indicator don’t seem to be working for me either. I know best so far did update and show in the past.

The problem is a constant for me. I am not positive what you are talking about with the achievement tab, but at this link for example (http://www.kongregate.com/games/light_bringer777/learn-to-fly-2?tab=achievements) everything is still greyed out even though I know I have some of the badges.

Yeah. I clicked the achievement tab and followed it continued to a game badge it shows as completed. Still have all of them just showing the greyed out check box.

Topic: Technical Support / Badges stay grey (I do get them)

I’m having an issue where the badge/achievement check marks never change. I can earn the badges fine; they show in my feed and in the chat pane pop up when I earn them. This goes for both newly earned badges and old ones.

I’m using the latest version of firefox.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / New userscript (based on Sreject's one)

Needs a delay on hiding visited links, never hide a link if it wasn’t visited on post or something else. If you have the “mark as visited on right click” option on, it hides links as you right click and doesn’t allow you to actually copy it. In other words, it doesn’t work for marking in chat right clicks, only when in the raid list.

Well, someone else restored before I got there this time. But I went ahead and made it uneditable. I don’t think that this prevents you from making a copy for yourself and then editing it, but if so, please let me know. If this doesn’t work, I guess I’ll switch it back and people will just have to keep restoring it.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / Kick Out on Quests

They’ve said before that the way switching works means you should either only do it when you are below “base” stat, because switching will basically remove everything then add it back on. So even if you see you have more energy, you don’t, so it kicks you out from a client/server sync error.

Either switch gear out one at a time making sure you wouldn’t drop below current without that gear on at all, or only switch sets when you are at or below base. Yes, it sucks that don’t account for that (which seems like it should be a simple fix >> store stat on server, switch gear, apply stored stat up to new max) but they don’t so you have to work around it.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / Bugs

Not positive this is a bug, but I’m leaning that way. It could just be really bad luck.

I’ve attempted to get two of the items for sock3. The first time I ended up getting a “null” and not ever getting the item before moving on. The second time was the same, another “null” before the item was ever awarded. The second time was on Val (Item #5). I’ve since tried going back and getting the item from the val raid again and have gone through more than 800 stamina 1 at a time. The first “null” responses I got came way before that when I tried before, as well as on other items gotten in similar fashion.

I am wondering if I didn’t somehow bug out and get marked as having received the items without actually getting them, and now can’t get them again. If it’s just insanely lousy rolls, fine, but it just seems unlikely. “Ixxy” in game.

That doesn’t matter. If no duplicates are allowed, it won’t take long for people to have all the normal items anyways and then they would get the more rare stuff.

At any rate, I’m not even sure why I’m responding again, but honestly there is just no way at all I imagine the devs would ever implement something like this.

I’ll look at it thanks.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / DOTD Damage Goal Helper

This little spreadsheet was made to help figure out various things to reach a goal of damage done. It was originally made for Kessov, but it got a lot more use than I expected so I made this new one here to be more all around useful, look nicer, and easier to use. (If someone wants to share this over on the official forums too, that’s cool. I don’t have a way to log in there.)

Feel free to post any problems or suggestions.

No way this will ever happen. The starting stats are already higher than most everything. Add to that not just one ability but ALL of them you own? You could have 40+ effects hit at once, not to mention the unthinkably high stack of +PvP, +atk, +defense etc you’d have on it. Plus you create items that aren’t duplicates, meaning in a short time you’d have basically everything in the game even with very low chance to proc. No point in trying to actually get anything else, just wait and it’ll be created for you.

No, just no, never gonna be anything like this at all, it would break the game to have even one of those items.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / Bugs

I think that there is an issue with dropping damage (can be quite a bit) when you perform actions even fairly quickly. This may be due to extra load during the WR, I don’t know.

I noticed something seemed wrong with the damage I was doing by following a simple spreadsheet for how much damage I should be around per level. I kept ending up quite low of what I thought was an underestimate, so I did a bit more picking.

When I went slow and paused long enough between every 1-2 attacks to record it, I got at or better than my lowball estimate for damage I should do per level (37m per level), in the range of 37.8m to 43.2m. When I just went through clicking soon after buttons were functional again, I got from ~33m to ~39m. That is a pretty serious difference in the long run. I’m sure there is a hefty margin of error with different points spent to lvl from exp rolls, but I did it with 4 lvls recorded, 4 levels fast.

Not whining or anything, it’s a game, whatever, etc. But I just thought it was really odd (and I’m geeking out doing the WR anyways so had time to check), and worth mentioning. Also maybe worth noting in case other people for some reason care about it.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / "A few balancing changes are made."

So, I don’t have any clue how the mobs are set up, but it seems to me like a good way to solve the balance issue for high levels without affecting low levels would be to revisit all mob balance (I know that is an insanely huge task). When I played it seemed like I kind of skipped through areas also, so that might address that as well.

Personally, I didn’t spend very much time in night forest, dead lands, desert, binary, and especially pirate ship or PS interior. I pretty much jumped straight from beach to dragon cave for a much shorter time than I was stuck on the beach, then went to SI. I only actually went to the PS after I’d gone to SI for a while, and PS interior was odd because I could do SI fine, but would die on Interior (I had only 1 in heal which might have been part of it, don’t remember).

I think another part of the issue might be the lack of “normal” areas for high levels, but then again at least one is being added, and the problem of getting to the PC/NCI end might be solved by making it take longer to get there. I don’t know…

Tukkun already mentioned working on how stats function though, and maybe that will change things, too. At any rate, I know that balance is a major major challenge and don’t envy the task. I’m sure he appreciates the feedback on it all, just stay constructive instead of hostile, that just makes you want to not work on it. You get much more done when positively motivated. :D

Another thing to consider is that there really isn’t that big of a problem. With more stuff being added as perks for ascension, there is a bit more content and reason to do so. The thing is, I don’t think many will play that long. I see me going perhaps a year or so (it is already getting to way more idle time for me) and would be amazed if I’m around in 2. The game is great, but there is only so much free time in you life you know?

So even at 20 days for an ascension (I think someone mentioned that) without pushing really really hard, that is 18 in a year, but I’m sure that it takes a while to get up be able to do even the 20 days. I’m on 80 getting close to my first, and many take a lot longer so that takes out a few right there (maybe 12 in the first year with no hard/imp). Anyways, my point is, even with that short a time just for normal (not even considering multiple impossibles) that is still only going to be a fraction of the unlockable ascension perks. So 1-5% of people (those who stick around for 2+ yrs) may get to see capped ascension points, so?

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Submit artwork for the game here!

Yeah, I’m not exactly sure what’s going on in the foreground or those little knobby things, so I think that needs worked on, but the background is nicely done and all computery/sciencey looking. (Might be fun to play with a little asymmetry in back though too, just to see what you come up with, just subtle stuff)

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Is that cheating?

It’s kind of funny. Everyone has their own “it’s bad, except when…” case. Further along, yeah there are easy ways to avoid this kind of thing. You can get 0% destruction enhancers for PMBs and later on, getting those is easy. Earlier is different, and there is a whole lot more risk involved with enhancing things, so save-scumm is more likely to happen.

The only way I used it was to avoid destruction, I’d backup, go through my saved up enhancers and whatever it was didn’t break I’d go on. If it didn’t succeed oh well, it only had a X% chance, but I wasn’t going to allow a 1-2% hit on destruction take away hours or days of play time. That was my version of reasonable use to save myself time that there seems to be less of each day.

I like playing something close to what I see as fair and reasonable considering the amount of free-time I have and how long I want to commit to the game. It makes sense to me to spend the time on enhancer enhancers especially now that they are so much cheaper proportional to income, and makes the game enjoyable. I would consider myself lazy if I save-scummed for every little thing, but I don’t care if others do, their time may be way more limited than mine. At the same time, I think doing so would just be incredibly annoying. I mean how much time is wasted moving files around, reloading, and waiting for a 15% chance thing to hit? Seems like more work than benefit. ;P
