My question is will you continue to post like that? And I mean “like that” by how your actually responding to threads now. I really like the person on your frg account now. Please keep it up.

Same person as before.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Why does my ping not show correctly?

Your ping always varies. Most software does some kind of sampling and averaging.

The game servers get a lot more data and have to send everyone’s moves to everyone else, so it may not respond as quickly as it should to a ping.

You don’t need pay for this game to be a “Real Player”, people pay to support the game. You think a few purchaces made on FFT is going to make Frg update again? LOL Think again. I played FFT for like 2 years straight and i know for sure updates dont happen back to back. After a big update, the most you would get is a very small minor fix but thats about it.

We don’t update for money because we aren’t receiving the amount that justifies it. We update when we can because we want to.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Dear Developer, I would like to know your policy towards hackers

All those empty servers are logical software servers, not hardware servers. We could scale down to just 1 hardware server, but then ping would be an issue for many players and would end up affecting everyone. So we are about as small as we’d like to go.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Dear Developer, I would like to know your policy towards hackers

In general, we don’t have time to try hunting down each hacker one by one and banning them, since FFT doesn’t make enough money to justify our wages. As you know, we make other games so we can keep paying for the FFT servers. If we don’t make those other games, we will no longer have jobs or FFT.

If people are hacking, yes, it’s our fault that we didn’t design the game to be hack proof. From feedback that we’ve received, our next patch will hopefully stop some of the exploits. When is the next update? idk. Hopefully soon. Again, it depends on us having time to do it.

I know you don’t like hackers. Neither do we. What can you do?

1) Report them to Kong. Kong has technology to track users and their alt accounts. If we just ban players now, they create alts and we can’t tell if we are effective banning them or not.

2) If you know how to hack and can actually duplicate an exploit, please send us a private message on exactly how to do the exploit. Tell us what tool you used. Show screenshots. That helps us when we are patching. We ourselves are not hackers and honestly, many of you know more about FFT than we do.

3) Ignore hackers. Most just want attention. If you are silent, they go away in a couple of days. (I realize this is hard to do.)

Why are Y and N still in there though? That option was removed ages ago. Same for Enter/Return/Space.

Please provide a better translation if you’d like.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Where did freerangegames go? Labyrinth.

Well, we like FFT too. That’s why we made it. :)

We work on it when we can. Hopefully we’ll get an update out soon-“ish”.

We like Labyrinth too. It gives us a new opportunity to take everything we’ve learned in the last 4 years and make an even better game.

We are trying to fix the lag in Moon Base and are running out of ideas. Could you please add your thoughts to this thread? The more specific you can be in your theories as to what might be causing the problem the better. Please provide example situations if you can.

Sounds great! Just hoping the graphics won’t turn the whole game into one giant laghole.

It’s a different kind of game. It’s a tactical turn based RPG—-it isn’t twitched based like FreeFall Tournament, so you shouldn’t notice the lag in Labyrinth. Plus given the nature of the game, we won’t send as much data across the network during game play. However, the updates will be big due to the art.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Where did freerangegames go? Labyrinth.

@GlaDOSCake, thanks for doing your homework and being observant. One of the guys that helped make LoL and Hearthstone is helping us out. He was attracted to the project because of it’s uniqueness. That’s not to say that there aren’t similar games, but there are only a few and we are trying to make sure we stand out from the crowd. Of course we haven’t disclosed everything just yet, so it’s easy to jump to the conclusion that this is just another CCG.

Interestingly enough, we think Freefall Tournament is not unique. It’s just another generic space marines shooter. We took almost every mechanic from similar games that we all liked playing. However, the combination of all the small features and the fact that it’s one of the best browser shooters (in terms of game play) has made it quite popular and loved by the community. Hopefully we can do the same and more with Labyrinth.

Probably not. Unless phones get even bigger than the iPhone 6!
