Topic: General / Blueprint order

There is also the Elite Tactical Knife.

Level 60
Item: Tactical Knife x5 (only from World Boss)

att 38
def 38
cost 60M

I think what the game takes into consideration, but you are not, is how difficult it is to acquire “all that you might want” of the ingredient items. Job drops can only be gained by yourself, with your own energy, so getting up to 2k of 2 different job drops is quite time consuming. Stockpile items are a non-issue, as you just need cash, and everyone has gobs of it. Gifts require you to rely on other people, but if you stay active and have a wishlist of only the specific item, it shouldn’t take too long at ~100 gifts per day.

Topic: Technical Support / Indelicate Text Shortening

Taking a 2nd look at it, it occurs to me that with an icon that looks to be a hand apparently offering money, that makes the name foreshortening even worse.

If you can’t have it show even just 1 more letter, perhaps you could change which badge is featured instead? I mean, the game has 4 badges associated with it, just pick a different one to advertise the game with, for the front page?

Topic: Technical Support / Indelicate Text Shortening

Not really sure where to put this, but…
I loaded up the main page just now, to see a blurb on the Featured Games about the soccer game and its badges:

I realize that the “problem” is with the text being too long and being foreshortened, but perhaps you could convince it to cough up another letter prior to the elipsis?

(Edit: I don’t know how to embed pictures, even small ones.)

Topic: Shadowland Online / News: SLO Server Maintenance Announcement on March.15th 2012

“2x food harvested from farm” you say? I honestly cannot even remember the last time I planted anything in my farm. It’s been at least 2 months. Probably longer.

I imagine this game could be dead if not today, then within a week, given the new NPC mages. More likely today, though.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Fortress Gone

At most 10 minutes after we, Lucky, (re)claimed a fortress in Otium on Eloir, there was a spam of 4 fortress lost messages, with no names listed. We quickly discovered that the fortress in Ascia City we had owned had reverted to unowned.

I took a screenshot of the fort lost message spam, while looking at the newly lost Ascia fort.

No, no one moved during this time. Yes, this needs fixing… immediately.

dear all. we got the reason why you lose the fortress.
The commander of the fortress chose many members in your alliance in the defense formation of the fortress. If all the members in this formation moved to other region, then you lose the fortress cause there is no defender for your fortress ,even though some of your alliance members still in this region.Hope this helps
so, you said you lost fortress in 30-60 level, did the players who was scheduled to defense has move to another region? so that you lost fortress in that place.

I was fort commander for the Lucky’s fort in Otium, on Eloir. Every slot on the defense was filled. No one moved. The fort still reverted to unowned, for inexplicable reasons.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Suggestions (archived)

I seem to recall the 10-30 capitals giving a max of 240 gold per click. The 30-60 capitals increased that max to 480 gold. It only makes sense (to me, anyway), that the 60-80 capitals would increase that number further. Say… 720 gold per? Seemed like the progression, given the lower capitals gold increase.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Sanctuary Quest kicked me out

As i recall, the in-quest maps for both quest 32, and quest 33 had a listed time limit of 6min. I also recall that those time limits were enforced at 6min. The Elder may have told you you had 10min, but he’s clearly getting up in age, and not always clear on specific numbers anymore.

If you’re not taking much damage from fights, then you need to stop watching the fights, and just skip them, ie “Stop” button in the replays. That should help you have the time you need. On the other hand, I recall a few of the early 30’s quests simply did not have enough time, per try, for you to collect all chests, kill all monsters, and finish the quest. Collect the chests first, come back finish the quest after.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Fortress Gone

This is at least the 4th time (I can immediately think of) that my alliance on Eloir has lost control of a fort we owned, for incomprehensible reasons. We’ve made bug reports about it in every case, complained on the forums about it, etc. I have yet to see any difference/fix made in this regard.

Honestly? I’m starting to lose rationale for continuing to play this game due to this and other alliance-related issues. Game’s fairly fun on its own, but being a part of a good, strong alliance is what makes TH30+ anything less than painful. With alliances being as buggy and unreliable as they are now, the desire to continue playing just keeps draining away…

Topic: Shadowland Online / Fortress Gone

My alliance on Eloir had a problem exactly like this. We received no recompense for it. At best, you’ll probably be able to take a fort after you are unable to claim the capital, and it reverts to unowned for a day.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Missing set items

Book of Commands is actually SOLD in Shop level 21. Yes, it’s a white item. >.>

Also, I know I found a Sharp Samurai Sword in a quest, one where the map looked like you were walking to a beach then into a cove. I’m also (pretty) sure I found a Sturdy Element Hat in a quest, though I don’t remember any details on that one.

Topic: Shadowland Online / army level?

Mostly reiterating Olscratch here, the “Hero Command (stat: little red flag icon) multiplied by Hero’s Level = ???” formula has worked for all my heroes, thus far. Check your answer via the next chart:

0-1099 → New Recruits
1100-2099 → Orderly Soldiers
2100-3099 → Auxiliary Soldiers
3100-4099? → Veteran Soldiers
4100-5099 → ???

My best heroes “only” have Veteran Soldiers, so I have no idea what comes after that, if anything

Topic: Kongregate / So, what do you guys think about the new Kongregate layout?

I have layout #2 (from OP). If I had a choice, I’d take #3, instead.
Having to do anything to see whether I’m logged in or not, even the tiny extra step of hovering my mouse over something is highly annoying. Speaking of which, it took me a good 5-10min to find the “Sign Out” button the 1st day… D:

Topic: Technical Support / Favorites list

It’s both back to a useful ordering, and the 3 games I favorited “back in the day” (and are now removed from site) are removed from my favorites count. It’s fixed! (I think)

I appreciate it.

Topic: Technical Support / Favorites list

So, you’re saying there is no way to de-favorite games that have been either removed from the site or otherwise are impossible to reach now? These are, or were, at least, very old games and thus, with the ‘new’ ordering of the Favorites bar among the first on my list, showing on my profile page…
sigh

Has it been mentioned anywhere by Kong staff that they’re both aware of the reordering (and the inconvenience it results in) and perhaps even working on it? I’m not really asking for a “Oh we’ve fixed it!”, I’d like at least, in the short term, a “Yes, we see there’s a problem here now.” : /

Topic: Technical Support / Favorites list

Seeing as how it’s been 4-5 days since this unfortunate change to the Favorites Bar ordering, I thought I’d take the opportunity to remove favorites I’ll probably never play again.

Interesting thing: My profile page says I have 13 favorites, but if I go to the favorites list menu, it says 1-10, and shows 10 games. Also, the 3 “missing” from the menu list on the separate page are currently all showing on my profile.

I suspect these games have been removed from Kongregate, as clicking on them from my profile takes me to the Kong front page instead… How then, since they only appear on my profile page, do I Un-favorite them?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Aetheron] Improvements?

At least once, I had 2 quests where the next (last) step was to go to Sweetwater.
Lizard Tails and a Main quest.
So, upon returning to Sweetwater, the Lizard Tails quest completed.
…waited around, looked at the tavern, looked at my quest list where the Main quest still said “Go to Sweetwater”… nothing. <.< >.>;
Ended up having to go to another town and come back to finish that quest.

Hence, my suggestion is to have ALL quest steps that are dependent upon arriving somewhere complete upon 1st arrival. Since travel does cost gold, even a little bit, it seems wrong to have to travel back and forth 2+ times just to finish all the quests built up for that town.

Topic: General Gaming / Dwarf Fortress kicks my ass

I’ve played it off and on for awhile, but…
At last check, fishing is not possible on most maps, and with farming on normal soil being borked…
I just look at the forums every-so-often, see if those are fixed yet, and if not, I go back to waiting.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ministry of War] Double Rainbow All the Way

My experience with this has been that when I try to make the bookmark (add to favs), it kills/freezes my browser. After killing and reloading the browser, coming back to the quest, it’s now “done” and the reward can be accepted… and the game can move on.

It’s happened to me on 4 servers now: Fury, Wrath, Rage, Conquest.

The 2 Tips screenshots were precisely the ones I was missing, thanks.

Topic: General Gaming / Clarence's Big Chance Achievements List

“Level 5” is the date. Near certain you don’t have access to the menu there, so hopefully, you’ve gone by the Tips list enough that you just remember the CAPS words.

I’m missing 2 tips. 1 from the House, 1 from the Office.
The Office tip, I am assuming, hides in ://History somewhere, but I haven’t been able to make the consecutive timed jumps over the disappearing blocks yet, so I don’t know.

The House tip… well, there are 3 I know of: 1 in Clarence’s room, right next to the sign about laptops; 1 in the Kitchen, down the middle pipe; 1 in the basement (I forget specifics, sorry.)
If you know of a different Tip location in the House… I’d love to know.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ministry of War] Jade Hare ornament and Moonlight box

Starting in Feudal age, there is, I’m told, a Daily task which gives a Jade Hare.

I’m also told, from someone who purchased a Jade Hare, that they don’t work at the moment.
So, even if you had Jade Hares, however you acquire them, you still can’t open those boxes, apparently.
