  1. Well, I actually did finish the game, and got all the he way to the end where it said I got a badge, but now the game has reset back to day 11.  I had to replay several levels multiple times today just to get to play day 12, and now it looks like the game doesn't even think I finished...very frustrating!  Any ideas if there is a way to correct this?

    There is no way to "fix" it at this point. The game has been taken down, attempting to refresh it will result in a 404.

     

    I tried to get back in directly via URL just to see, but it appears our little game has perished.

  2. Doing a geno run.

     

    Having bad time.

     

    #ideservethis

     

    EDIT: Finished phase 1 on attempt #11. Knew what would happen if I spared. Did it anyway.

  3. Question for the game team. Shouldn't we get the 2 badges? The candy stripe stocking and the festive gift?

    No.

     

    Stocking = Participation without completion

    Giftbox = Completion: 6+ Nice

    Coal = Completion: 6+ Naughty

     

    I have a question: we had 12 mii games with choiches, what would happen if you choose 6 nice and 6 naughty? which badge would you get?

    There were 11 quests. This is Day 12, and its quest does not have a naughty/nice option. There is no way to be equal parts naughty and nice because you must complete all of the previous quests to access the final day.

     

     

  4. Day 12, Avery is asking me if I still have the thing (which is good because we might need it in time to come). Except I don't think I ever got the thing to begin with. Which day/should I have gotten it? It's not in my inventory.

    It's a reference to last year's event. This is the only time we see Avery in Valkemarian Tales: Jolly Follies.

  5. I don't think it's Alfador. Wrong color purple, and no markings.

     

    But anyway yes, there was overwhelming disappointment over the lack of kitties and they added it in. <3 Thank you!

    It is Alfador. The person who made him just used different purple because they were only told "purple".

     

    I know because I'm the reason this cat is purple. Purplecat exists because I asked for Alfador and would not shut up. If you don't want to think of him as such, his canon name is Alfie.

    Which is short for Alfador.

  6. Perl giving me a gift is so sweet! I don't regret being all nice.

     

    Erm, what about for those who have 6 nice and 6 naughty choices? ohmy.gif They'll be stuck in Purgatory.

    This is Day 12, and it doesn't have a choice. If you have reached the party (and your badge), you will have done 11 quests.

  7. Why? Was it possible? 0.o

     

    Not all of them - I have the tree I want. Quark broke the vase. The town was full of reindeer; and the ancient temple got pillaged. 

     

    The Good choices were made in situation where it looked like it would lead to more adventures XD (also, stealing cats is a low blow, pocket watches are silly, and there were witnesses around the pie stand)

    See above: Tehpikachu got a lump of coal. :D

     

    If you only made 4/11 naughty choices you were still primarily nice, and got the corresponding badge.

  8. Kinda sad it's over, but I appreciate the work that was put into the game. Thank you DC staff.

     

    Although, I am wondering what was up with that isolated cabin north of town. Can't remember who the sign said it belonged to, and I can't seem to be able to go and check now, but it just struck me as odd that there was a random cabin placed off the beaten path.

     

    Click for the map image

     

    It's the cabin in the upper left corner. I kept waiting for the game to address it, but I don't think it ever did.

    That's Hilde's house.

  9. I'm so lost.

     

    I found the temple, moved that mirror to open the door.

     

    Now I'm in a room and Steve says to solve the puzzle like I did before but I don't know how.

     

    The mirrors only seem to move up or down and not side to side and none of them are interacting with the mana beam.

     

    Help?

    You can let go of the mirror and grab it from a different direction.

  10. Ok so a few questions.

     

    Did anyone do that thing from the day wiith Bil and the flower picking, where you could circumvent the naughty/nice choice by taking the northern path around to the farthermost eastern area to get the wildflowers? If so, what effect did it have on your game?

     

    And is there a way to get to either the cat cave by the reindeer area or the mushroom cave outside Bord's cave?

    There's no legitimate way to get up to those caves as far as I know, but I didn't make the maps.

     

    Plus the mushroom cave is probably where those mushroom-loving howlers live. You sure you want to go there? Poppers might not save you this time. :P

  11. HELP! I've gotten myself all turned around.  :(

     

    After the taylor she said I was to help someone west of town, Galys? With fence posts or something??I cant find anything! Am I completely missing something here? And I've no idea about the pies folks are talking about.

     

    I'M SO LOST!!   :o

    Galys' house is on the west side of the same map that the tailor's shop is in. Follow the dirt path to the west (left) from Robin's shop. You can also slide on the pond along the way to speed things up.

     

    And what makes you think Robin's a she? :o

  12. smile.gif

     

    what happened with me is that they came to me

     

    [snip]

    As Odeen said above, that bug should no longer work and people will have to do it the correct way.

     

    Please don't encourage people to exploit glitches to complete their quests.

  13. What if I'm sick and I don't have the patience? laugh.giftongue.gif

     

    That's relieving! Thanks for answering. (Now to hope this wasn't the last day, aha. Or is there a determined end date for this I don't know about? Guessing not though.)

    Nah, there's a few days left!

  14. Dang it, I entirely missed the naughty/nice options while moving through the text and I pressed the naughty! WHY does it HAVE to be on the top? //OTL Please world, tell me, whyyy sad.gif

     

    Does anyone know if the tree fixes if you choose the nice option on the next day? QUQ

    Because patience is a virtue. ;D

     

    And yes, it perks up if you make the nice choice the next day.

  15. Odeen passed me on to TJ. So far, no answers. I keep getting kicked back from the snowman section to either the start of the Romeo day or the start of the cave rescue day. Good times. I've replayed that cave rescue so many times now I can do it with my eyes closed.

    Hmm. Well, alright. If TJ's on it I hope he can fix it soon so you can finish the event.

  16. Thanks but it didn't work.  I redid all those levels twice now and am presently in the snowball rolling section, but then I got bounced back to the Romeo day again uggggh.

     

    Was this game tested prior to release?  This is a collosal waste of time during an already busy holiday.

    It was tested as extensively as we could within the time we had. If it wasn't we'd be getting weird glitches that would allow us to do stuff like fling Ansel, Bord, Quark, and the reindeer across their respective zones at high speeds (which I did during testing, with our following npc, because it was funny). The live server that is processing thousands of other functions (including other instances of the game) at the same time is a vastly different environment than the server we were testing things on in our small group. This game has a lot of moving parts, and a lot of the breakage seems to happen somewhere else down the tubes between server and end user.

     

    Which is not to say all problems are out of our hands. As far as I've seen, this time warp bug of yours is extremely rare. Have you reported it directly to Marri, Odeen, or birdz with the necessary information so they can figure out what's happening? We're aware there are bugs to fix; it's pretty much inevitable considering we made an HTML5 RPG in 45 days. But extensive bug reports help them get fixed much faster.
