Oh, no, I was never anywhere near the top, actually.

...which was kinda my surprise.

You are confusing Awesome Fred with Teh Dave.

With my bare hands.

Achieving a good glory score on a Bastard Rank is difficult though, with all the mutual KOs that reset your score. I'm not sure if yet another multiplier would make much of a difference. The sweet spot would become Rank 5, much like it already is now for cigs/ease of play.

I'd really like it if the text preview for Places didn't freak out every time I try to center text or use the J code.

Yeah...glory is well nigh impossible to -get- keep at a higher rank right now, or just jungle fighting as someone with full clan buffs.

The only way I managed my personal high score was amazing joker stats and titans. I don't even know how Petrucci has 1.3 billion o.O

When you get a new armour/weapon/etc, there's a text that says "Sheila nods approvingly as you swagger around posing with your new[insert your new equipment here]". I know it's a tiny thing and that I'm being pretty obsessive, but it would be nice if there was a space between the word "new" and the name of your equipment - I can't imagine that it takes much time and it would make me really happy Big Grin

Oh, that would be easy. I do imagine Petrucci achieved it while fighting multi-monsters. You know, when you have less than 20% stamina, you can stay alive for a really long time if you are not strong enough to kill the enemy, yet not weak enough to die. Using the chemical pack allows you to endure losing consciousness if the enemy does not hit you immediately after it. And with a really big chemical pack, you can fight practically forever!

...That being said, I'm not actually sure how does one achieve a score this high.

Nem: You should check the bug report link on top of the game's page. I think there was a bug report about missing spaces.

I would remove the "takes a breath" alert (again) when we type. It makes special comments zero fun, 'cos it breaks the fourth wall for you when you try and use them as non-character related narration.

I love non-character related narration. Frown

Right now, it's just testing to see if the server can handle it for when the new commentary system comes in (maybe tonight!)

Admin CavemanJoe says "The new system doesn't handle Specials in the same way, the Javascript is separated out, and the typing indicator doesn't get tripped for Specials, commands, GREMs, or anything you're typing that isn't a regular comment or emote."


It's won't be a problem in the new system.

Okay, now I just remembered why I'm so loathe to keep distributing stones: now the way the Building Inventory is set up with the furniture on top, I have to scroll far down to click the Take a Stone one-by-one for 200 times.

Yay, new commentary's a-coming. Please, please, let the ability to specify action repeats for these situations be the next thing.

Oh,while you wait for that to be changed, you can try pressing the End button and the Page Down button to immediately scroll down to the bottom or one page. It's a lot of help for me when I want to fight Titans and check my final health after ten rounds or check the miniHall-O'-Fame.

I managed to accomplish it in significantly accelerated time by pressing Page Down 3 times and having my cursor positioned exactly over where the link would be. I then kept a stiff right arm for about a good 5 minutes, I'd say, as I clicked over and over.

All. The. Damned. Time.

Mostly on transferring grenades and such, for me, but for other things too...really wish there was a way to manipulate larger numbers of items in inventory than just one, and less than all...

I personally don't mind it much. It all serves to raise the rightmost number-that-is-last-on-the-bottom-of-the-page. Go on, little one! You're close enough to a million!

Being the Linguistic Nazi that I am, may I go slightly off-topic here and request Mr. CMJ if I could post a list containing typos? (The aforementioned spelling/grammatical errors or LotGD references would effectively be posted either in a new thread, this thread, or in one post here to be edited, if it is alright.)

To continue further off-topic, with my apologies, it's nice to be here. I look forward to posting in the forums and possibly editing the wiki as time allows. Smile

I do believe a better place for them would be as a public petition under the "Report a problem" button in top of the game screen, but yeah, maybe!

Yes, the petitions would be a more useful place - but before reporting a typo, please read through the list of ones that have already been diligently collected and reported there by other players. (Thank you... you know who you are!)

If a typo has already been reported, then it is already on the list of things to be fixed, and no useful purpose can be served by reporting it again. It will be corrected... when CMJ has the time to do it.
