Topic: Shop Heroes / iOS Companion App Update!

Hi ShopKeepers!

Cloudcade has announced that they’ve launched a companion app for the Trade House today!

It’s Offers Made Easy! This is a simple and satisfying way to stay in touch with the Trade House on the go! Just click the box with the iOS update and the game will automatically link to the Apple Watch. From here, it’s quick and easy to set up and collect Offers from the Trade House! Currently, the app is only compatible with creating, collecting, cancelling Offers.

The controls are fairly simple and are listed below for your convenience:

• Swipe to switch which slot you’re viewing.
• Tap on a slot to enter it and create an offer
• Use the wheel on the watch to browse items.
• Modifying Offer: Choose item > change price or quantity in different screens > apply.
• Slide up and down using the Apple watch’s wheel. (This is a requirement from Apple.)
• Cancel your trade by tapping on your offer and scrolling down to the cancel button where you can cancel from there.

Have him try the solutions posted in this thread.

The error i get over and over is the webgl is out of memory and to have the developer add more memory. Is there a way to fix this?

Out of memory. If you are the developer of this content, try allocating more memory to your WebGL build in the WebGL player settings.

Please download the Unity Web Player and try playing on Mozilla Firefox.

Topic: Shop Heroes / linking a phone account to kong

Unfortunately, Kongregate’s 3rd-party login policies do not allow for this. The opposite (Kongregate to Phone) however, is possible.

Maybe a nostalgia/flashback week offering the older package…or maybe during Halloween you offer H1 and H2?

There’s no word on this yet as the date is so far away, however a discussion has recently opened on the official Shop Heroes forums.

Topic: Shop Heroes / Results in quarantine by virus scanner

This is the first time I’ve heard of an anti-virus software preventing someone from playing so I can’t offer any help, although Shop Heroes is a unity game and not flash so the fact that your anti-virus quarantining a .swf file doesn’t make sense either.

When we have 70 city raid prizes, and I have completed 53 of them, not necessarily in consecutive order…it will just become more difficult to read through it all. If it said CR21, I would know the specific city raid that gave it away as a prize. With only a handful of city raids it is easy to find….but eventually that will change

If more City Raids are introduced then we will find a way to make identifying recipes much more easy, but currently it is not necessary and adding a number field in the Item Directory would add unnecessary clutter.

We may just end up listing the city raid name in the recipe type instead.

Requests for the following:
1) Column in item list indicating if it is a precraft. Values would be (blank) C, Go, Gr, F. Ex: “GoF” would indicate that it is needed in other recipes as a good quality precraft and a flawless quality pre-craft. You could colorlize the letters with blue F meaning it is used for a chest recipe precraft.
2) Maybe adding a pre-craft tab. This would list all items used as a pre craft. Or specializing it for all items used as a precraft outside their family(flawless Phoenix Talon Amulet used for Frostfire Guantlets). I hate selling great or flawless items only to find out later they are a precraft.,,,or I could have been fusing them all this time.
3) In item list, when indicating a City Raid recipe, maybe number them, that way I instantly know if I own it since I am missing the first 4. Over many weeks, more and more people will start weekly collecting and be in the same boat as I am having missed some.
4) In Item list, when indicating Hallaween pack, you will need to indicate which one (eventually) as we reach 1 year anniversary and we have a halloween pack 2016, Thanksgiving 2016, Valentines 2017, etc. (I know jumping the gun, but in case you havent started thinking about this…less to edit and fix later when you change the format)

Thanks for everyone’s work

Thank you for your suggestions and feedback.

1 – Probably won’t happen as we’ve tried different ways before but ultimately it just became too confusing for viewers.

2 – There is a high likelihood of this happening, it’s a great way to list precrafts without cluttering the Item Directory with confusing information.

3 – Use the City Raids sheet to know which recipes you do and don’t have. Numbering the recipes in the Item Directory will probably not happen.

4 – Yes, we are aware of this but will not make any changes until a recurring pack is announced.

Topic: Shop Heroes / April Patch Notes: April Showers bring Updates!

Hi ShopKeepers!

This patch is all about fixes and optimization! Check out the details!

This patch is a bit different. Cloudcade will be releasing other versions prior to iOS. iOS will release as soon as Cloudcade receives approval. Look for version 1.0.65010 in the app stores for this update.

UI Improvements

  • Added a preview of the broken items in the repair screen (3 highest values shown, still need to go in the repair screen for full details)
  • Added feedback when pressing certain UI elements (tutorial, city raid, daily objective, etc.)
  • Added the “Complete” glow on all missing slots
  • Improved the “new” missing components screen (re-enable toggling precraft, can always buy from trade, etc.)
  • Added a logo to distinguish WebGL build (That way you know which version you are on!) Remember, we recommend WebPlayer for a smoother experience.

Balancing

  • Added different bags for Daily Goal streaks scaling with Shopkeeper level (25 for Mysterious and 35 for Wondrous)
  • Removed the possibility of claiming requests over inventory size infinitely in the Trade House. This means you will no longer be able to collect items if your inventory is full.

Other Imrovements/Optimizations

  • Improved furniture loading to be smoother, always load fusion/upgrading furniture and load furniture not in screen
  • Improved environment transitions

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where users would get a black screen in the city
  • Fixed an issue where max level buildings would not give the appropriate boosts
  • Fixed an issue with heroes order in the Barracks (re-ordered healing/resting to previous version)
  • Fixed an issue with numbers not updating properly when viewing workers and furniture
  • Fixed Gold Digger not working properly with new quest system
  • Fixed first time offer not displaying the proper amount of gems on Kongregate
  • Fixed heroes going pass their max level temporarily
  • Fixed an issue with gem fountain sometimes making it look like it gave 200 gems and causing out of sync issues
  • Fixed some cases where rankings wouldn’t center properly
  • Fixed your own shopkeeper sometimes passing by your shop
  • Fixed large items overlapping in Bulk Customer screen
  • Fixed lighting in Roulette scene being too bright in the back
  • Fixed issues with boost displays
  • Fixed an issue where a player could hold to browser trade on a non-empty equipment slot
  • Fixed an issue where users could put HTML in their player name
  • Fixed Fusion sounds going through volume settings
  • Fixed workers playing their working special effects when walking
  • Fixed the chest room freezing if user would click on bags really fast
  • Fixed crash when upgrading shops
  • Fixed multiple display issues on small screens
  • Fixed multiple cases of HUD disappearing
  • Fixed other minor display/localisation issues

There you have it! Fix, fix, fix!

Topic: Shop Heroes / Purpose of Red ! on Inn Back Button?

I’m not entirely sure. I thought it only appeared when crafting, fusion, or an upgrade was completed or when there was an impatient customers waiting. But I guess not.

It could in fact be a display bug.

It was previously stated that this was not possible due to bandwidth constraints, although that was months ago and plans can change (unlikely with this though in my opinion).

Once you have the game installed on your phone and you have completed part of the tutorial, you should be able to open up the Settings menu at the top-right. Simply click on the Kongregate login option, and enter in your Kongregate login credentials to link your games.

Topic: Shop Heroes / Account merge? (mods)

Account linking from other platforms such as your Phone (Google Play/Game Center), or other websites (such as Facebook) to Kongregate is not possible due to Kongregate’s third-party Login policies.

The opposite ‘Kongregate to Phone’ is possible but will override your Phone game account with the one from Kongregate.

Topic: Shop Heroes / Bug?

You shouldn’t have lost the gems as the gems are not deducted until the roulette has stopped spinning and the reward is claimed. You may have gotten the reward but not have noticed or known exactly what was awarded.

You can try contacting Cloudcade Support and they may be able to provide with more information.

I’m not sure if we can report mobile bugs here or not, but from my iphone nor ipad can I purchase from the trade house via the hero equipment screen. When you hold down the item you wish to search for it does the normal circle and goes to the TH, however, the game does not allow the transaction to complete. This applies to both gems and gold.

This has been fixed in the hotfix which is still pending approval by Apple on iOS.

Just tried clearing both, still crashes on going to the city screen from the main shop, also now it crashes even when i go from the inn, not due to manual cache clearing though, it occured before i tried the manual clear.

Thanks for the details.
