Topic: Card Monsters / bad design/ simple bugs being ignored

Wrong, frozen. The auto play calculations could simply be done right after you choose the surrender option, and get rid of the problem entirely. litterally 2 minutes of programming work.

Topic: Card Monsters / bad design/ simple bugs being ignored

in the game, I’d had my cards feared, causing a chimpbow to be in front, and a red dragon with priest mark in back, healing all damage each turn.

There were no more cards in my library to play, and the game was just continuing automatically and wouldn’t let me sack the chimp to continue the match.

If I had been able to sack a card from the field like a player is supposed to be able to do, I could have won the battle, but instead, due to crappy and/or lazy game design, I was forced into a draw situation.

Topic: Swords & Potions / daily spin bug

I supposedly won ‘3 days’ on the daily spin today, but did not get them. they were not added to the days count, as I had the standard 4, and there didn’t seem to be any option to activate the 3 extra days anywhere either.

You realize they already have an ad on the front of this game… your petition won’t do anything.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Fresh Deck Poker] Your game's rather lacking!

No way to view hand history, and a betting system that makes it extremely difficult to bet specific amounts, especially in turbo games… I tried betting 200 by typing it in, and instead it switched it to bet only 20…

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Why costs coliseum cards were multiplied by 2?

This is part of why I’m leaving the game. The devs don’t seem to care about their main player base, and are making it worse every update.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Another longtime player quitting the game

With every update, you make this game cheesier and increasingly difficult for your main player base to be able to get the good cards they want, and so, this longtime level 460 player is now leaving your game. You devs also still ignore bugs in the interface and connectivity that have been here from the beginning. A very unprofessional thing to do.

Have fun with your game losing your more dedicated players. It’s too bad… Your game used to have long term potential to be better, and stay a fun thing to play. Instead, you are making it worse.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Mindblast bug or somesuch.

I don’t know if mindblast is affected or not, but for some stupid reason, blanking cards have been blanking the ‘scary monsters’ monster cards before they are ever added to the opponent’s deck, instead of cards that were in the deck already… who knows how many other adding to the deck cards are doing this same thing…

Topic: The Grinns Tale / disconnection issue

I have seen a few disconnects with chrome now. It’s not terrible like it was on firefox, but it’s still not good for your servers to disconnect people, especially with a play area that doesn’t save your winnings until you move out of that area… always wondering if the game is going to mess up, and cheat you out of what you’ve gained.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / Bulldozing or Salvaging Buildings Under Construction

It’s also annoying not being able to move a building that’s under construction too… you can somehow move a working mine, but not a partial building? dumb.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / disconnection issue

As a test, I started using google chrome instead of my standard firefox browser… And with Chrome, I do not get disconnects! I do, however, start to get a very slow game after a few battles instead, while in the explore areas! (FPS goes to about 6!)

This is the only game on kongregate that I’ve ever had issues disconnecting from the server randomly, so there is something in YOUR programming that firefox really doesn’t like, and will be accepted, grudgingly, by chrome)

You may be able to place a tiny box movieclip inside the hook animation, then use it’s location as the anchor where you want the item to follow.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / disconnection issue

It’s impossible for me to get past floor 20 of the tower, and even floor 4 of the highland falls areas, with these disconnects.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / Suggestions and bugs

It’s nice that the attack skills reset issue has been fixed, but you devs REAAAALY need to fix the issue many people have with your game constantly disconnecting us every few minutes!

It really makes it impossible for us to even attempt the explore mode, as I’ve tried to do the last floor of highland falls about 25 times now, and am still unable to complete that floor due to getting randomly disconnected every single time!

If you don’t want people to stop playing this, this MUST be fixed!

Topic: The Grinns Tale / "Ready to battle" button doesn't appear. Refreshing not helping

If you’ve recently gotten more than 3 players and there’s a message on explore screen about little spotloghts, or some such, look closer, and you should be able to see 3 more small spotlights like where you put the main team… you need to put other characters on that row too.

I thought the game wouldn’t start at first, too, when I first got to that point.

Topic: Game Programming / What's the max width and height for games?

Is there a recommended aspect ratio format that will fill a kong window as much as possible without being cut off, as well as being a standard aspect ratio for most flash-usable mobile devices?

Topic: The Grinns Tale / disconnection issue

I stand corrected… Now I’m not in the house with power fluctuations, and instead at the library with a stable connection… and am still getting the rediculous disconnects… not as many, but still several in an hour!

Topic: The Grinns Tale / disconnection issue

I know that it is my connection causing these disconnects, as this house has power fluctuations that disrupt the modem’s signal, for very brief periods of time, mostly for split seconds.

I’m really just saying that they should fix the game’s operation so you aren’t forced to refresh the whole game every time that happens, and let you continue your fight in the explore areas if that’s where you are… Having to refresh every time makes you have to restart whatever floor you were on at the time…

It also seems that after every disconnect, I am also having to set my characters’ attack skills again to what I want them to be… the other skills seem to stay set to what they should… This makes the disconnects 10 times more annoying than they are by themselves!

Topic: The Grinns Tale / disconnection issue

you REAAAALY need to make the game more tolerant of tiny disconnections for people like me, who don’t have a perfectly stable internet connection.

In your game, I can’t even get through 8 rooms in a row reliably, as even the slightest inconsistency in my modem signal disconnects me from your server!

Instead of forcing refresh of the entire game for every micro-second long disconnection, how about you make the game actually try to see if it can reconnect, maybe after a single second or so?

That would make your game playable.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / game breaking bug

My bortha got depleted, I think during the opponent’s turn with a self deplete of some sort, and then I was only getting 2 cards in hand every turn.

Then my magic lamp proc’d, and was expecting me to play my non-existant 3rd card… forcing me to forfeit the quest battle, as there was no way to continue.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Forced to buy an armlock, when trying to close a popup window!

I need to have the card “armlock” removed from my account, and to be credited back the purchase amount of relic tokens, since I was never going to purchase that.

I had been crafting colosseum tokens from the fragments, and because your basic user interface doesn’t work correctly, when clicking the button to close the popup window to ‘claim’ the craft colloseum token, it also registered as a click on the craft for the crappy card underneath!

A cancel button option on crafts, instead of ONLY the claim button would be an obvious and easy thing to stop BS like this from being a problem in the future for anyone else.
