Topic: RobotPet / Did nooze abandon the game?

Yeah… I hope he gets a wild hair and does an update. It’s one of the better games here, IMO, well deserving of further development!

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Compass Fields

I’ve done that many times since getting all the gems to X.

The first time I had them all correct, here’s what I think I remember happening. *FUZZY RECOLLECTION ALERT* I think I got a drop of something or other when I entered the compass level (when I first got the final gem to X) but then I lost the battle and did not receive whatever it was that dropped.

The special drop I think I recall may also have been from a tome chamber or a barrel (or whatever) that needs shooting with bolts. I just don’t remember it clearly now.

I know that nothing has happened after that one battle, and I don’t have any idea what to try now.

ETA: I got it. What I had to do is set a compass to a wrong direction, then go back to the map, then restart that battle and put the compass back to the right direction again. As soon as I put it to the right direction, the special drop occurred again. Now all I have to do is win the battle. :-)

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / compass (spoiler)

The clue is the gems in the starting screen. Look at what type each one is, then change the compass and reload the battle.

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Compass Fields

I have MP and have beaten all the compass levels, and the gems in the loading screen are all X. Now what? I can’t seem to get anything to happen.

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Who all bought the Magicians Pouch?

I bought the MP. It definitely makes things easier, because now what I always do is make a 2y/1r/1w gem and just up it and amp it like crazy. That’s all it takes to dominate pretty much any map, at least so far — up to the win point, at least. I don’t yet know anything about “beating” endurance runs; I thought they were infinite. On most any map I can pass somewhere between 100 and 150 waves, generally. (This is on Haunting setting, no traits.)

$5 is truly a pittance for a game this good. The debate should not be over the $5. It should be over the decision to obtain the MP or not. As noted, you can beat the game without it, but it certainly speeds things along.

Good discussion.

What gem loss problem is that? If you’re referring to the way your gem count sometimes goes down after a pillage, that’s a known glitch which is not a problem because what happens is you get double, and then half of that is removed, so you’re ultimately getting the correct amount. If you mean something else, I’m curious about it.

Topic: Heroes of The Banner / How to use Treasure Maps

I’ve done this at least 5 times and have yet to see anything from it. I don’t doubt that you guys are reporting accurately, but it hasn’t ever worked for me. Many hours of clicking tedium, down the drain.

I got the email with the 12 frags and now have 5-star Aurora. Where do we get the 5 heroes to trans her to 6-star?

ETA: Got one of them (enthusiasm) from an expert summon tome in tavern.

ETA2: Duh… that’s a 4-star for transing her from 4 to 5. So I still need the 5-star ones.

Topic: Heroes of The Banner / Level rollback

I got this too (the level rollback), but only on some of my early levels. I’m 46 now and it hasn’t happened in weeks.

The rewards rollback I do still sometimes get.

Topic: Heroes of The Banner / Commonly Asked Questions

I don’t know either, but I can say that I haven’t noticed any benefit to rolling 10 at once. I get 6-9 blue chests no matter what, and I haven’t ever gotten a yellow fragment in the past couple of weeks despite always making sure that it’s there before using a map.

Also, on the green thing:

“- Keep a low level green item, doesn’t matter which one, for the Refining daily. Only costs you 5 runes total.”

It does matter which one; some take 2 runes per refine. Make sure you choose one that only takes 1 rune per refine.

Topic: NovaLode / Suggestions

Lots of good suggestions, Quizer.

I see that the player base appears to still be small at this point. Hopefully the game will be featured by Kong and draw in more players. Failing that, access to the lower levels could use some adjustment; I only ever see the top 3 open, any more. Maybe tie the opening-up requirements into the number of players online, or into the average number online in the past X hours/days?

Mapping again:

It would be an improvement if the mapping in a mine level would at least show us where we’ve been, so we can decide whether to backtrack or try another direction. As it is, the mine levels are pretty hard to keep track of from inside them. As has been mentioned before, it’s really frustrating to have a packful of ore and then die behind a long wall because the mapping is so weak.

I’m not sure. I’ll try to watch for exactly where it happens.

Occasionally my character gets stuck running, as though the game thinks I’m always holding down certain movement keys. To clear this glitch, I keep clicking randomly on the movement keys until it clears.

New ones only cost 2000 credits; not much point in keeping old ones.

We all wonder about that. It’s a lot of content to seal off.

The northern drillship location has a mission board which needs its interaction zone enlarged a bit. Standing in front of it, I have to double-click it. I can’t hit space. Standing behind it, I can hit space.

Very good patch. Thanks for incorporating some of our ideas!

Hopefully our f-bay jobs from before the patch can be found again! ;-)

Topic: NovaLode / Bugs - 2014

My jobs are gone from the f-bay as well; would love to get them back. I had 30 cells plus a bunch of other stuff.

I get the same thing Bunji does with rocks that suddenly appear only after I activate mega swing. With the slow speed of my computer plus sometimes lag, I don’t always have a chance to run from those.

Speaking of which…

A few minutes ago I was killed with 670 health remaining. How? I clicked on a non-explosive rock, but my click was buffered and then applied AFTER my character ran a step. After taking that step, she was standing next to an explosive rock, which had 3 others right next to it. My backpack was nearly full on level 7 when this happened, so I lost a LOT of good minerals. :-(

I suggest not allowing the system to apply buffered mouse clicks, especially in the mine where this kind of “unearned” death can occur.
