Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [G.I. JOE: Special Ops] Increased Platinum rewards

Economy rebalance patch

We have released a small update which increases the rewards for matches to 3x higher for PVP and 2x for bot matches. This means that active players will have a much easier time earning enough Platinum to buy commandos, vehicles and equipment. We hope you’ll find that your hours in the game pay off more.

Yo JOE!

The recruit allies link isn’t working for kongregate. I invite my friends thru the new kongregate window that opens up but nothing ever happens. And the game tells me that I have no friends online. I have no friends added at all. Please fix this.

Are they accepting through Community>Activity Feed?

Hi kretak :)

When you get this happening, could you press F10, a console window should open for you. If there are any red text entries, could you click on one of those which will open a further extension of that window with a fuller description of the error. If you could screen shot this and email it to us at gijoespecialops@gmail.com we can see in more depth the problem you are getting then

Points taken guys, thanks for your input :)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [G.I. JOE: Special Ops] Game needs a better matchmaking....

Hi Karyuudan :)
Matchmaking has been implemented to an even distribution of players ranks across a general search for a match, so for example, you get 4 players ranked 15+ and 2 at level 3, then it will put 2 high ranked players on each side with a new player to balance it out. This of course won’t affect assemble teams, you can still team up with whoever you wish. As more and more players come into the game, this will obviously balance out even more.
Leavers incur a match ban each time they leave and can only play with Bots until this time runs out.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [G.I. JOE: Special Ops] Patch notes 28th December 1012

Patch Notes 28th December 2012

We have implemented a small patch to rectify a couple of bug issues and make some improvement changes to targeting.

Commandos

  • Corrected the description of Snake Eyes Shuriken ability from:-
    Throws a Shuriken that bounces to 3 targets, dealing physical damage to each enemy.
    To:-
    Throws a Shuriken that bounces to up to 3 targets, dealing physical damage to each enemy.

Improvements

  • Targeting will now correctly match the effect of the currently selected ability and will prioritize as follows:- 1. commando, 2. drones, 3. building.
    This will stop for example:- when shielding someone with Flint, targeting was not prioritizing friendly heroes. So if a minion or a hostile hero was on top of him, or very close to him, he couldn’t be targeted.

Bugs Caught and Rectified

  • Rectified that some players were being removed from the loading screen and put into another game
  • Rectified negative numbers showing for waiting players to join the queue for a match
  • Rectified after using some abilities, you sometimes couldn’t target drones and turrets

We are continuing to investigate the other issues that you have reported to us

Yo Joe!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [G.I. JOE: Special Ops] Help Hints

Just some suggestions to try and help those of you that have experienced slow loading or performance issues:-

  • Clear your cache from your internet tool bar settings then restart your browser. ( If you are not sure how to do this, a quick Google search will help you ).
  • Lower the visual quality in the settings options.
  • See if there are any updates for your graphics card or video drivers.
  • If you are using a laptop make sure also your battery power is set to maximum or high usage (having it plugged in to charge is not enough for some).
  • Also make sure you have the most up to date version of your internet browser installed or even try with a different browser.
  • Only have shortcuts on your desktop rather than full programs as this will zap virtual memory
    Update your DirectX from the Microsoft website
    Turn screen savers off
  • Make sure you have Plugins enabled within your browser
  • For slow loading or disconnecting, this can also be caused by not enough RAM available or your computer has a very high CPU usage. If you have unstable internet and your internet trips (as in switches on and then off again) or cuts out completely for a little while then you could also experience this.
  • Make sure you have no other programs running or tabs open while you play.
