Topic: Realm Grinder / The new update

And even though it’s comparatively minor, the pre-1B gems people did get changes. There were many balancing changes made to factions like Goblins and Undead, and some to Elves and Angels as well. So it’s not entirely without updates. Hopefully it’s a bit more balanced as a result as well.

Topic: Realm Grinder / [Minor Feature Requests]

I thought it might be a good idea to make a page specifically for the little requests, so they’re easy to find and so that they don’t take up too much space from the rest of the topics. So please post any little changes you’d like here.

As for me, I would greatly appreciate it if the Numpad were also usable to autocast spells. I have an odd method of clicking, wherein I use both my left and right hand on the mouse, and click faster than I normally could. Since everything’s focused on the right of my keyboard, it can take as much as a full second out of my 8 for Fairy’s Chanting to press the button and then position my hands just right. I run into a similar problem if I try to click the button and then reposition the mouse quickly over the treasure. Having the hotkeys right where my hands are would save a slight bit of time that would very quickly add up.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Upgrade bug

I’ve noticed this same problem in excess since the update, and a friend of mine has had it as well. My best guess is that there has been a change to what qualifies as “clicking and dragging” for the purposes of scrolling through the upgrades page, so clicking normally is being misinterpreted as that and causing the upgrade not to be bought.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Hidden Trophies Guide

Very nice to have these all in one place, so easy to find. Great job putting it together, and I like the little How To sections. I do have a couple things to point out though. On “Exchange Master”, Elves can only multiply faction coins x4, not x8. And for “Lucky Neutral”, the time spent as Neutral is 7,777 minutes as opposed to 777 minutes. Everything else seems perfect. Thanks again for making this for us all.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Guide] Epic Skills

Today I decided to check in on anti-idle’s forums, and I learned that my guide was out of date. Well, that wouldn’t stand…so I fixed it up. Values updated to reflect the new cheaper price, and added in info about the perk and quest. Hopefully this’ll stay up to date for quite a while, and continue to help those who enjoy having information.

Battle Arena & Fishing Lag

When attempting to fight in the Battle Arena, the game lags so badly it is impossible to pick up any items, and difficult to even leave the battle arena. There is a several second delay between actions and seeing it happen in game. I have also been having problems with attempting to sell/recycle items in Fishing. I have not noticed it in any other parts of the game. Other games on Kongregate do not lag either; neither do any other websites. I have tried refreshing the webpage (several times), restarting the computer (again, several times) and even defragmenting my hard drive just to make sure it is not my computer. The problem persists and it is only in game.

Such an annoying problem. It’s caused by an update in flash which somehow makes things significantly worse instead of better. Try this link. Downgrading should fix everything up.

I could be wrong, but I think the point he’s trying to make is that the work put into building the garden back up on an impossible is not worth the reward gained from having it for such short a time.
If I’m wrong, just ignore me. :P

I’m severely confused, Zak. I still have that moment on my chat log, and you seem to have replaced something Aurian said with that line instead. Or is the deal that it changed without your help?

As a convenient marker when you feed dragon 200 times at level 9000 or 9001 it costs roughly 6 billion coins.

There’s also a quest that tells you exactly how many feeds you’ve done that day. It’s an extra click, sure, but it’s far more precise, for those that prefer precision.

Like i said, i do basically everything you said. Yet im +19. The only thing i can think of is constant activity and the whole thing about exploiting pyramid and the old instant prog costs. But i pretty much started noticing how overpowered instant progs used to be and used them a bit. But yeah of course i always use 2x, have similar or actually higher reward stats, i dont actually use the exp temp perks though, and i have almost every useful perm perk now (at least for levelling). Maybe it comes down to adventure spam or something else weird. Also you said this “usually to level 2000 or till I feel like—it doesn’t take that long. Then semi-idle HC NCI/PC or idle PC with dark ruler”. That seemed to indicate at level 2000 you went to PC or NCI? Anyway, im just trying to understand how you went so fast. Cuz i already spend way too much time on this game and it just amazes me how some people blow me away speed wise, like they have these uber powerful secrets that i know nothing about somehow

Aside from overlooking some obvious difference between your two strategies, there’s also the possibility that you’ve just not played near as long as he has. Feel free to compare Play Times, and see if that solves your problem.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Guide] Business

If you do lots of shots, might want to link them instead of post the full picture. that’ll get crowded fast.

Also, you’re missing a step. When you reach the 1.5x multiplier, the 1.3x one still applies first. You get both. After factoring that in with the score/25, I got 18,464. Which is actually one off. weirdness.
Randomfruit is definitely /500. Fertilizer looks the same as mega, in that it rounds up now instead of down. Which would explain why you have one despite the score.
This new data really helps. Thanks :D
Edit: Updated the main guide to show sections that haven’t been fixed yet. I went ahead and said that gardener is fixed, though there may still be a detail or two that needs ironing out.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / [Guide] Business

I propose the following changes to gardener’s formula based on Alman’s testimony. If anyone can prove these right or wrong, or offer any changes of their own, please do post here.

Anyway, Gardener:
Garden Points went from (score / 10) to (score / 25). The multiplier bonuses apply as they did before.
Mega Fertilizer seems to have gone from floor(score / 100,000) to ceil(score / 500,000). An odd change, but it fits the data nicely enough.
I would also assume that fertilizer suffered a similar change, but I can’t figure out exactly, since it is maxed in that picture.

Simple lag. The game incorrectly tracks the location of the mouse, so even though you’re over the loot, it doesn’t get picked up. I had a lot of experience with this before I downgraded flash.

Is there a list anywhere of which booster packs can contain which cards? If there’s not, I’ll make one. with SSF and a simple notepad file it’ll be easy. Just potentially long and boring.

Can anyone help me with getting my attack higher? I’m level 21xx, and I have already maxed my attack power (just with pixels). Right now, including all of my modifications to it, it’s at 74,273. I have spirit armor fused with elite armor, a ranged weapon with 752 ATK and 24 speed, a fully leveled out silver amulet, a Reflect Ring, and pretty much 95% of the skills involving ATK maxed out. Even with all of that, I still can barely idle in casual Dragon Cave. I don’t really see how I can up my ATK a whole lot further.

Also remember that sometimes you just can’t handle a zone. If nothing you do works, then simply wait and level up for a while first. It’s a long game, and the time between one zone and the next gets longer every time you advance.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Strange slow on BA

I had this same problem maybe a week ago. The game would practically stall when selling more than two items at once, and weird things were happening to my chat as well. I went looking on the forums for a solution, and found one. This website will tell you how to revert to an old flash version (The new one is why you’re lagging so bad). http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/flash-113-crashes

I’m confused with the formula for Idler Business. Am I supposed to only anti-idle once a day to activate career and get daily reward, or is it still best to be as active as possible ? (my career is already level 100)

If you’re aiming for the highest score possible, then yes, idle as much as possible. The formula calls for “Activity”, but in the case of Idler, it’s actually Inactivity you want. So long as you’re gaining career exp, you’re doing the right thing.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Triangle Count [GUIDE]

I’m feeling generous. I dug this up for you guys.

Originally posted by Tukkun:

The real formula is:

score += floor((70000 + timeBonus * 1000 + skipBonus * 20000 - difference * 20000) * multiplier);

if (difference == 0 && timeBonus >= 5) {
multiplier += 1;
}

timeBonus = Remaining time when you last change your answer in seconds, maximum of 10.
skipBonus = 1 if you press Space before the hint, 0 otherwise.
difference = The difference between your answer and the correct answer.

AI lags all the time, even if it is the only thing running on my computer fps drops from 41 to 16/17, sometimes it even goes as low as 4 … really can’t play it at all now …

This thread is actually a year old now, so the problem is most likely different now. (It took me a minute to notice, since it actually says August :P)
The problem probably IS flash, as I also had trouble starting right when I updated flash. Then I found this, and my problems were solved immediately.

Online time vs offline time is part of the math. If you’re offline a great deal more, then you have a multplier that goes down and lowers your potential score. That’s all I’ll say for now, as I do plan to explain some of the harder to understand math involved with the post I linked. And maybe I’ll do the easy parts too, just so I don’t get the inevitable questions.

I’m not sure I understand what you mean. If you mean “amount is always score/10” or something to that effect, then no. Many values have their own multipliers. A cursory glance shows /20, /25, /500. things like that.

Rellian, since Tukkun has added 4 color bars score, then we should focus on the calculation of the score for the particular Business Performance Bars of each Career, then next should be focus on how to calculate the overall score for the Business.

This is already what I’m doing. Look in my post above. I’m going to go ahead and post those numbers in the actual guide. If it turns out they’re wrong, I will of course change them. But I need proof that they’re wrong, as well as something to change it to.

Did the update change anything in Business formula? I didn’t see it in the notes, but the business screen was changed.

Yes. There’s now a performance bar while a business is activated. I could use some confirmation, but I have an initial guess as to how it works.

Blue Bar: 0 – 1,000 score
Green Bar: 1,001 – 10,000 score
Yellow Bar: 10,001 – 100,000 score
Orange Bar: 100,001 – 1,000,000 score

The one time so far I’ve tested supports this theory. But like I said, confirmation would be nice. This also doesn’t keep track of anything from 1 mil to 100 mil, which is a bit odd. Maybe Tukkun doesn’t expect anyone to reach that high :P
