Topic: Dream World / Finally!

Thank you for fixing the delay! It works as expected now – no key eating, a bit of a delay (black screen) sometimes, but not enough to be bothersome.

Thank you for being responsive.

PS. Do you not get some revenue simply from plays (from advertising)? Or is it only gems?

Topic: Dream World / Finally!

Kingk I don’t think you realize how frustrating this enforced delay is. I play this game to relax, but the delay makes it the opposite of that.

Press space, wait for screen to change, press 3 (Talisman), nothing happens. Press it again, still nothing, a 3rd time, finally.

Do you realize the screen updates (from black, and shows the encounter), and only a short time AFTER that does it start recognizing keystrokes?

At the very MINIMUM it should accept keystrokes at the same instant that the screen changes! And given browser speeds, that means it should accept keystrokes FIRST, and only then display the screen or there ends up being a time when the screen is changed but nothing is accepted.

I’m not a robot or a script, I can’t time 1/4 of a second in my head – I see the screen change, I expect to be able to press, but I can’t, you need some undetermined time after that.

And BTW, I know you told some people not to play so much, but I don’t mistcap, so reducing my mistcap isn’t going to make a difference.

I don’t approve of scripts either, but it’s not just me; everyone in my guild is complaining about “micro lag”. And I’m not super fast, just regular.

Aren’t you hurting players more than scripters? A script can just slow itself down, 5000e would take the script 2 hours instead of 1 and the owner of the script would not care.

Not so players: They have limited time to play, and now they can play half as much as they used to in the same time.

BTW: I feel bad that you post this great new update, all you have is complaints from me about one minor part of it. I’m not able to see the new stuff yet, but hopefully those who can will also post.

I timed myself pressing 2 keys alternately at the pace I was accustomed to before the update.

I got 18 double (36 presses) in 10 seconds. So that seems a fair rate to me – I rounded it up to 2 explores per second.

Right now I’m constantly seeing the black “waiting” transition screen.

It’s awesome you did an update!

But please get rid of the time delay when exploring. It’s so frustrating hitting the keys two or three times and it does nothing because it’s forcing you to wait. 1 per second is not fast enough.

I timed myself and natural rate is 2 per second. Please update it at least to that.

Also, I’m kinda worried about logging scripting detection – I triggered that one time for no reason, I was not scripting just playing.

But the update is awesome – just needs a bit of tweaking.

Topic: Kongregate / Winter '15 Suggestion Thread

I think the timestamps are great! Please don’t remove them.

Maybe give the timestamp line a clear CSS classname, so that they can all be hidden/show with a simple display: none toggle?

3 Feature Requests:

  1. Can you add a “clear chatbox” button? I like to clear the chatbox once I’ve read everything, so I know where I am holding.
  2. Can you please make Away/Active work again in guild chat? Including the message inside the guild chat marking the moment you went away? (i.e. don’t put the message just in the main chat.)
  3. For guild chat, please add a Room Announcement feature. Any member of the room can change the Announcement (no special admin or anything), and it will stay with the room until someone else changes it. The announcement is always visible at the top of the chat until you clear it, and if changed it comes back till you clear it again. Along with the announcement on the top it says the name of the person who last changed it, and of course it also prints in the regular guild chat which scrolls (in case there are multiple announcement you can just scroll back and read them).

Thanks.

Topic: Kongregate / Summer '15 suggestion thread

I hope the developers are still reading these. Are you?

A feature I would find very useful is adding a Status Message to guild chat rooms (perhaps all chat rooms, but especially guild, or game ones).

You don’t need any special admin permission or anything – make it so anyone in the room can change it. When someone changes it, it simply announces: “foo has changed the Status Message to xyz”.

The idea is that when you connect to the chat room, or if you go from away to active it prints the message for you, and the name of the person who set it.

This way you can leave messages for any other person who might come later, even if you are not on.

Our guild has some messages that are 20 days old and were not deleted.

It’s properly deleting messages written after those, but the old ones just stay. (Yes, I know the GM can delete them manually.)

Just keep working at it, even with 3% you will max it eventually.

Topic: Dream World / Official Suggestions Thread

King do you still take suggestions?

Can you please add a shortcut to switch classes. Don’t do a swap like ally, but rather a hotkey to directly switch to one of the 4. Always pick the best available of that class type for the person.

You have the letters: D F H J K available. Pick 4 of them, one for each class.

Topic: Dream World / Mage vs Gunner/Dragonlord

Why not switch back and forth as needed? You are not locked on a single class, not even during a fight.

I use one Dragonlord for call bunnies, then switch back to Divine Sage for the better damage.

Tip #39: Bank your coins before fighting a boss and you will get a free heal. (The regular mobs give you coins first, then the heal. The bosses give you the heal first then the coins – so if you bank first you get the heal for free.)

Transmission is a unity game, but you can use Pipelight to make it work under linux.

It installed very easily, didn’t even need to restart my browser, worked perfectly.

Topic: Dream World / Dream World Tips & Tricks

Tip #21 don’t save your coins till you are in your 90’s. Spend the coins on potions from the elf. I was completely broke at level 91 and by early 92 I have 4 trillion coins, so saving coins at lower levels is worthless.

Tip #22 Count to 10 for invasion, fallen, faction war, and oceana bosses, and use your tallisman by the 10th attack (if you didn’t earlier).

Tip #23 Use life (or regen) armor plus an ally with shield, and you can handle bosses that one shot you, much earlier than you otherwise could.

Tip #24 stop accepting the gambler by around level 75 (I forget exactly). The higher level you are the lower your chance of winning, plus you get coins for killing him.

Tip #25 At some point the item you get from beggar is not worth the coins. At that point switch to giving her the low value. From then on you don’t need the high value for anything in the game.

Tip #26 Copy the low value into your clipboard, then press Crtl-V on beggar and well to save time.

Tip #27 If you have the decoder press ‘D’ on the puzzle box and chest before clicking to open it – it will bypass the wait. (This is a bug technically, but the developers have been told about it, so I guess they are OK with it.)

You can connect to DW from a phone, I do it all the time. You just have to bypass kong and connect directly. I’m not sure if there is an easier way, but you can get the url if you have developer tools for your browser – search for dwkframe then find the src of that iframe and prepend http://kong.playmage.com to that url.

The url will look like: http://kong.playmage.com/dream/enter;dwjid=RANDOMLETTERSAND223423NUMBERS434?kongname=yourname&token=morerandomlettersandnumbers123456789123456789randomrandomandmore&kongid=123456&sn=1

In firefox you can also try ctrl-shift-i then click the left button that looks like a box with an arrow, click anywhere on the dream world, then scroll up in the inspector window till you find the iframe.

Sorry for the non-user-friendly instructions, maybe someone knows an easier way.

So a lot of people have suggested stacking items in bank.

I know you don’t want to do that because then people won’t spend gems on bank space.

So how about making it an option only after you max out your bank space? Once you can’t buy any more space then you can buy an option for “stacking”. Only items that can’t be enchanted can be stacked.

Until it’s fixed you may want to keep one in inventory to avoid getting more. At least you’ll get coins.

I suggest putting the talisman in slot 3, then you avoid that, plus you don’t keep buying dust or playing the gamblers game. You also get more exp from fighting the wiseman.
