Topic: Freefall Tournament / Walking speed is still not the same.

The fix I had planned isn’t working, it’s going to take longer as I have to do a complete rebuild and test. Won’t be happening today, but I’ll be able to do some better tweaks too.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Questions about the -update-

Looks like there was a change to footwork by accident. I changed it from 15 to 1 just to test it and did not change it back. It’ll be fixed on Monday.

Depends on your time zone. We are on Pacific time.

We’re not going to be making it tonight. We should have the game up sometime late Saturday.
We’ll update the game page when we’re sure.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Freefall Tournament is BACK!

We are working on the new servers, hoping to have it back online late tonight or sometime on Saturday.
The new servers are in in New York and London and are provided by GameServers.com

The last US server was in Texas so west coast players may have more latency while east coast players will have less. These were the only available locations.

ikr. I feel sorry for the people working there. It’s an inconvenience for us, but we’ve already found more inexpensive servers, so it’ll save money in the long run. The people who lost their jobs have their livelihood affected.

Servers are offline. It’ll take several days to get the game running on new ones.

I appreciate all of your support.

@LeonTheBrony, You must have put something in your post that the auto-mod removed, since I don’t even have the option of looking at what you wrote, like I do if a non-Kong, human mod hides a post. Look at the evidence: Freefall Tournament is a fun game. If it made a lot of money, we’d put servers all around the world and try to blow the game out as big as possible. And didn’t you read my long post earlier in this thread?

BTW, update on the servers situation: Obviously as of the time of this post, the servers are still up, so I tried to call Hypernia and their phone was disconnected. So no new info. There could be minutes, hours, or days left to play until the servers go down. We are in the process of buying new servers and transferring the game, so hopefully downtime will be limited.

Do they get their whole account reset? Or just some XP and cash?

I look at their play history and estimate their AFK rewards, then I round up generously.

Hmm, so it’s going to go offline eventually, then the resume 2-3 days after, right?

Yes. It might be longer.

We aren’t the only ones caught unaware, the Ballistic devs also need to find new hosting.

Serious? Wow. Why are the server hosts unable to continue?

It was not carefully planned. At all. We received an email from Hypernia’s lawyers saying that the company has gone bankrupt and servers will be shut down in a matter of hours yesterday. However service comes and goes still. They didn’t and aren’t communicating with us, other than the letter we received. I’m sure there are quite a few people over there that are also surprised that they no longer have jobs.

Basically all of your posts now advertise Labyrinth. Could you give us some inside info? Like why you guys are spending money on developing new games when you have a game with a decent playerbase (some of which are paying money for skins and stuff) here in FFT? Or maybe I’m wrong about all that. Enlighten us.

Free Range Games makes games for other companies as well as ourselves. We work on a dozen games every year. Most of the time you never see our name on the game because one of our partners publishes it. It takes that much effort to pay everyone a basic salary in our 25 person studio.

It’s been 3 years between when we started Freefall Tournament until starting our next new game Labyrinth. Many games do not last as long as Freefall has. If it wasn’t for all the client work we do, we would have had to shut Freefall down a long time ago because although we are very thankful for players’ financial support, the game has struggled to even pay for it’s server costs and has never been able to support development. Even with Chrome not supporting the Unity web player and now the server company going bankrupt, we are trying to find a way forward for the game. Some players keep preaching doom and gloom that we have abandoned the game, but that’s just not the case. Freefall is fun and we like it a lot, so we keep it running. If we ever do shut Freefall down, we will make an official announcement.

We constantly look for new opportunities to make new fun games. We’ve even made a couple mobile snowboarding games ourselves that were fun but didn’t make good business sense long term. Then one of our employees had a really good idea that he’d been working on privately for awhile. We all liked it, so we started to make Labyrinth. No company has combined CCGs and RPGs in the way we are trying, so we hope it will be fun and fresh, and yes, we also hope that it makes enough money to support ongoing development to maintain a player base that will last for a decade—at least that’s the goal.

WE’RE BAAAAACK

We got bad news from our server host, Hypernia, and they are no longer able to host our game servers. We just received that information an hour ago so we’re hard at work in finding a new host but were unprepared for the suddenness of this.

It will take a few days before Freefall is playable again, so please bear with us. Hopefully our new host will fix some of the latency issues players have dealt with in the past weeks.

In the mean time please check out our new game in development: http://www.labyrinthccg.com/

Thank you very much for playing our games!

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Should i Report To Kong Or FRG?

Um—-U has been banned for being under aged and account sharing. They are trying to steal someone else’s account.
If they’re not in Freefall there is nothing I can do about it, but be sure to report it to Kongregate.

You already have the gunner on your account, refreshing the page should fix it.
I’ve added 1 z cash to your account which should help it get unstuck too.

Agoaj will ban them (when he gets to it) for x amount of time if you provide sufficient proof.

They also lose the XP and Z cash they earned AFKing.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / TP locked a petition to give FFT a second moderator.

Agoaj doesn’t have mod powers because we already maxed out the amount of Dev accounts for this game.

Instead I just use this one when I need to mod things.

Forgive me for being noob x.x but what is ‘TDM’? Also, the last sentence on the list post, “Only 9 of these players are from id net sites.”

Can someone tell me what these mean? lol

Team death match.

I think it means sites like y8, not sure though

Yes, anywhere where you log in with an id net account.
