Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / So about that FCG speed change...

I also have another suggestion: make Speed balance outside battle, in the FCG Main Menù. As you improve Battle Speed, reward also decreases accordingly.

The point is that during the match, depending on the current situation, you can speed up or slow down accordingly. And yes, the reward nerf was to happen anyway. The new speed options are just an excuse to implement the nerf. I’m sorry that you guys disliked it, next time I will just simply nerf the rewards instead and then implement the feature in a much later update when the nerf is long forgotten.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Ways to get banned

I have seen some myself, but I’ve removed the download links. Generally I let it slide, but when someone shares a 40 ascension file or something like that to the public, it’s quite obviously a bannable offense.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Ways to get banned

Yes, you can get banned in Anti-Idle. Temporary bans don’t exist, only permanent bans. Pretty much every serious abuse of the rules of Anti-Idle (e.g. hacking to ruin the leaderboards, spreading cheating methods, publicly sharing savefiles, excessive spamming in the forum, etc.) will result in a permanent ban.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Gems owned (1016)

The “Next nerf in” is reduced when you throw gems. The number of gems you own doesn’t have anything to do with it.

As your nerf count increases, you get lower rewards from throwing gems.

Below is a brief description of what is available during the event!

Daily Login Bonus!

You can receive up to 150 Shiny Tokens, which are used to buy awesome SHINY Progress Bar Modules, for FREE – simply by logging in daily during the event! They normally cost 30 billion Coins each, so 150 of them is worth 4.5 trillion Coins!

  • Day 1: +50 Shiny Tokens
  • Day 2: +10 Shiny Tokens
  • Day 3: +10 Shiny Tokens
  • Day 4: +10 Shiny Tokens
  • Day 5: +10 Shiny Tokens
  • Day 6: +10 Shiny Tokens
  • Day 7: +50 Shiny Tokens

Remember that you have to reopen the game daily to receive this bonus! Also, you may NOT use a Day Skip item to claim another reward from this event, so make sure to play every day!

You have to be at least Lv. 100 (or have ascended at least once) to be eligible for free Shiny Tokens.

More Shiny Modules!

What is a Shiny Week without more Shiny Modules available for purchase? During this event, the appearance rate of Shiny Modules in the Module Shop will be greatly increased, so if you are looking for some awesome Shiny Modules for your Progress Bar, now is the perfect time to look for them! And just in case you haven’t checked out the Progress Bar Modules feature yet, make sure to click the Progress Bar!

As usual, you can buy a Day Skip item in the second page of the Mystery Shop to restock the Module Shop and get other awesome daily benefits!

Cheaper Shiny Tokens!

Are there so many awesome Modules that you want to buy, that the 150 you get for free is still not enough? Well, good news – during this event you can buy Shiny Tokens for a lower price than EVER!! For only 20 billion Coins each, you can get yourself as many Shiny Tokens as you want! Remember that the price will go back to 30 billion Coins once the event is over, so don’t forget to buy them!

Double White Coins!

Have too many Shiny Tokens, but not enough White Coins to buy the Modules you want? Worry not – during the event, you can get TWICE as many White Coins from all sources, except Lv. 9001 reward! This includes the White Coins you get from Daily Bonus (so use as many Day Skips as possible!), from White Coin Modules, and from any other feature!

Also remember that you can use White Coins to buy other things, such as Cyborg Points for the new awesome Simulation Cyborg feature, REST upgrades, and maybe other upcoming features! (hint hint)

Extra EXP & Coins!

Gain 50% more EXP and Coins from all sources during the event, except the Progress Bar and Awesome Adventures!

4x Monster Chip Event!

Although this one isn’t new, remember that this is the last week of the 4x Monster Chip drop rate event! This is the best opportunity ever to hunt for the Monster Chips you need!

And more?

Other usual daily events are still available in conjunction with this awesome Shiny Week event! Check the in–game event page for more details.

Additionally, stay tuned for more awesome events and content updates in the future! We are also about to celebrate the historical 12,345,678 play count! The more you play Anti–Idle, the earlier we will get to celebrate it!

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / NOTICE: Reschedule of Garden event

There was an issue with previous versions of the game causing Home Garden trees to be unaffected by the -25% wait time event.

This issue was fixed in version 1695.

The -25% wait time event has been scheduled for 3 extra days, from January 21 to January 23. Additionally, the +100% EXP event has been extended for 1 extra day, and will now end on January 17.

I apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.

Yep, it does look like a weird memory corruption or something similar, but that chip looks like it should work just fine and the description should be no more than a visual error (which I don’t think I’m going to fix).

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / NOTICE: Regarding the "accidental" IA upgrade reset in v1690

In an early build of version 1690 (which was live for approximately 5 minutes), there was a very serious bug causing everyone’s ULTRA ALLIES and Invisible Ally upgrades to be removed.

While this only affected the players who updated to version 1690 in that five minutes, I understand that for the affected players, the damage it caused was very severe.

In version 1692 (which is live now), I have tried my best to restore the ULTRA ALLIES and Invisible Ally upgrades of all affected players. Currently, most ULTRAs should be restored already, along with most +10 upgraded IAs. However, IAs that were +9 or lower were not restored, and a few +10s and ULTRAs might be missing.

If you believe that the Invisible Ally upgrades that you have lost are very important to you and demand a manual restoration, please send me a private message stating which IA upgrades you are missing. Remember to include the monster name or ID (preferably the ID) as well as the + upgrade it was at (for example: Censor Sheep at +8), and I will try my best to restore it for you and give you additional resources to make up for the inconvenience. Note that this may take some time, as I am quite busy in real life (sorry).

However, I do understand that not everyone remembers what they have lost, and some people might not feel comfortable sending me a private message or have the patience to wait for a manual refund. Therefore, I have enabled an additional event in v1692 (not visible in the Event page) that makes Monster Chips drop 4 times as often (and it stacks with 3x drop event), so you can get back what you have lost much more easily! The 4x Monster Chips event runs until January 31, 2015. Additionally, from January 25 to January 31, there will be a 2x White Coins event.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding.

      • During a match, you can press left/right to adjust the speed in TukkunFCG.
      • Your speed setting is saved between matches.

  • TukkunFCG

    • Due to TukkunFCG changes, time taken, Cyborg Point costs and rewards of TukkunFCG actions are adjusted accordingly.

Does it only happen in ED? Would love input from other players as well, because I just did a test ED run from floor 1 all the way down to floor 180, and got every piece of armor that I was supposed to get (and seemingly every loot). Weird.

And what do you mean with just pixels? Like, the blue P dropped and disappeared, and you got no Pixels out of it?

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Guide] The Golden Age of Cyborg Simulating (or, Man's Crisis of Identity in the Former Half of the 21st Century) <Note: currently being updated to v1694>

I know this is just a case of weird word usage due to English not being your native language (I think?), but people would usually call it a mistake or an error, and not a bug. Bug is for software.

Also, Toa’s guide clearly states that it will go from 74/75 to 1/80.

Exp does roll over upon level up, but is capped based on how much exp it takes to level up. For example, if you would get 70 exp from doing an activity, and it takes a total of 50 to reach the next level, you would only get 50 exp.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / bug:broken autosave

Loss of progress is almost never a bug. Maybe there was a browser crash or something – the game might fail to save if it is closed unexpectedly.

Another reason could be that you opened Anti-Idle in two browsers or two browser tabs, and that would cause savefiles to overlap each other.

In any case, you can probably get that back in a few minutes considering that 3x EXP event is going on.

Topic: Kongregate / [New Feature] Introducing Kongpanions!

It’s the truth. Kongpanions is the invention that turns “developer knows everything” into “developer knows nothing”.

Another interesting use of Kongpanions could be collectibles in card games or monster collecting games or something like that! And if you dislike the fact that they have to be obtained from other games, it’s always possible to just grab the name and sprites of Kongpanions and make them obtainable through in-game methods only. There, you have some free art to use weekly without having to worry about copyright and stuff, and it technically wouldn’t have anything to do with the Kongpanions system at all! (I’m doing this in my next game)

Originally posted by Tulrog:

@Tukkun: How did you solve the problem with making the Kongpanions somehow individual but still up-to-date? Are their effects random or do you update your game every week and set the stats for the new Panion by hand? As far as I can see this is the biggest problem with the Kongpanions (besides balancing issues).

Yeah, I agree this is the biggest issue with the Kongpanion system – I think I’ve solved the balancing problem pretty well, but this is something I cannot do much about, unless they make the tags for Kongpanions more consistent. They should at least include a few “core stats” often included in games for each Kongpanion in the tag, for example: attack/defense, color, element (fire? ice? non-elemental?), type (animal/plant/etc), etc.. Using these tags, it would be easier for the developer to automatically add stats to in-game Kongpanions.

The way I implemented Kongpanions code-wise is pretty poor though. I couldn’t make or find a JSON parser for AS2 (if anyone finds a functional one for AS2 please direct it to me!!), so I ended up reading the JSON page character by character, and find sequences of letters that I suspect may be the name or status of the Kongpanion. If they add a new attribute to existing Kongpanions, there’s a chance that the code might break.

For now, I use the ID of the Kongpanion and the letters in its name to determine its stats. They usually won’t make much sense but clearly nobody is active enough to update the game weekly for something like this.

Again, this is mostly an experiment – I want to see what can be done with the Kongpanions API aside from what we have already seen (which isn’t too much). It is actually pretty interesting to have “weekly content” added to your own game and even you don’t know what it is going to be.
