2015-12-19 - Holiday Event Info

Recommended Posts

PS is anyone else getting interference when playing the game and doing other things, like streaming music or movies? It makes my laptop stutter (?) when I'm crossing boundaries in the game. Not a problem I guess, but it's odd.

Me too. Today, the game hijacked my browsers (FF, IE and Opera) and other programmes, I could get nothing but the game screen in any window. blink.gif

Getting to the right tab and closing the application was a real pain, but afterwards, things went back to normal.

Hey, I got my bred holiday dragons gendered today and well, I got this:

 

[snip]

 

The wiki says the Mistletoes are an all female breed so, is this a new improvement to the species or some sort of glitch? Not complaining though, just wanted to make sure rolleyes.gif

There's a quote from PieMaster much earlier in the thread that announces all bred mistletoes can gender as either male or female. They are meant to complement hollies. The exact quote is in the dragon cave wiki.

Well had to redo the snowman day for some reason. I completed it yesterday, but the game seems to have forgotten that. Oh well. Done now I guess. I should go back and explore more of the area in the northern mountains and in the south where the snowman building was but... meh... lol.

This is weird. I was having dinner at the house of a friend that plays DC, his SOWA seemed to have a mind of its own and kept going East by itself. No ice lakes or such were involved. Did anybody else experienced the same?

Oh well, I didn't knew that and I guess I missed the quote on the wiki, but it is good to know its not a problem, thanks for the clarification Jazeki smile.gif

I just wish I could get past day 2. Still stuck, have tried everything (refreshing, cleaning cache, etc).

At one point, I was able to complete days 3 & 4, but the next time I came back, it had knocked me back to day 2. Completed day 2 & 3 again, then knocked back to day 2. I give up. sad.gif

Hey

I was stuck in a time warp too like you where I would get looped back to earlier days. I PM'd Odeen who said they forwarded my glitches on to TJ. Not sure if he intervened or not but the bouncing back to earlier days stopped for me so far.

You're welcome! I asked the same thing earlier in the thread. :3

I went back to the mountain to chat with some dragons that may actually speak with me //side-eyes Janus

 

And when I went to talk to Bord he like flew backwards into the wall. Fine, I understand, don't talk to me tongue.gif

Got bored today so I went back to the cave to the north to talk to the dragons, and it turns out the baby gold dragon slides if you push him. Here he is in a wall. I've technically been nice all game but I'm having a whale of a time shoving him around the cavern XP

 

I've noticed recently that the text scrolling makes a sound when I'm on Chrome and doesn't in Firefox. Is that a glitch of some sort?

What does SOWA stand for?

Alright so I guess it was my fault in assuming that there wouldn't be barriers by the ledges to let me just walk down the mountain instead of having to go through the caves again.

 

I am now stuck in a little pocket of mountain under a ledge with an invisible barrier keeping me from going down the next one. Time to reset, I guess. Yay.

Guys, if you go back to Odela and Bord you can push lil Bord all around the cave like you're playing with him. laugh.gif

I realized that Odela and Kuno were the dragons in the 2014 Holdiay event. After stopping the blizzaed, there was a bonus story where Kuno brought back some fire mana to warm up an unhatched Bord, then the blizzard stopped and Bord hatched. Nice sequel there smile.gif

Is something wrong with the game? I'm up to the day of delivering the Janus' birthday invitation to the other dragon. My character will not navigate properly ... doing weird stuff like would start walking and would not stop and can't reverse them, etc. makes getting around next to impossible. Reloaded several times to no effect. Even reset the day. Now the game won't load at all...it's just frozen on the loading bar screen.

6 hours later and the game still will not load. managed to get some music briefly at one point but nothing else. sigh.

I wanted to put some of the animated spritework from the game in my forum signature and thought some of you guys might want to also show off your SNOWA color.

How do you restart the game?

HI

 

If just clicking the reset on the page itself (the last line of text says to click here to reset the day), then all I did was just go back to my dragons, and started again.

 

I had to redo today three times because it kept freezing, but finally got it done wink.gif

Such a pretty gold baby! And I love the continued tiebacks to last year's Christmas.

 

Aww. It's not as bad as I feared, at least, but I wanted to accompany the cutie home and say hi to his parents. I love meeting the dragons in this game. And it broke my streak. (Also, those Howler drakes, they are actually mushroom geese, omg.)

You can still visit his home and say hi. :3

Mushroom geese actually makes a ton of sense, especially that a flock of angry "geese" would be intimidating to a little dragon.

 

Spoiler?: Did anyone else notice the red mushroom with white spots that to me looked like it was sparkling on their way up the mountain? Wonder if poor, overworked SNOWA will have to fetch it for someone one of these days?

It looks like the same kind the Howlers were trying to get (and scared poor Bord in the process).

 

I'm not sure whether it's been an issue on my end on on DCs though, but there have been periods of severe lag while playing. Walking around the main square with the fountain is especially laggy, though the interior of houses and other areas of the map aren't (so I'm leaning towards the DC end? Who knows).

Pretty sure it's related to what's onscreen - the more stuff onscreen, the slower the game renders. Not the first game I've seen with this issue.

 

what day is it. I'm trying to catch up and I just hit the howlers

You're on the right day, at least until an hour from now.

 

We don't know. Only TJ knows, and so far he's not telling.

I'm actually a little worried about the bossman. Haven't seen him active at all with the exception of the announcement posts, and he forgot to breed his Christmases and freeze his usual s2 release hatchie. I know holidays can be busy and stressful, I hope he's doing okay.

I just started fifteen minutes ago, but I'm having navigation and loading troubles, too. Talked to the Gold dragon and went to look for treats - figured the sign might help ("Northern Mountains Ahead") - started to climb the mountain - and just froze like I'd hit an invisible wall.

 

Can't reset my location, clicking anywhere does nothing, Esc/Backspace/Tab does nothing, and when I tried F5 to reset the entire thing it wouldn't load at all - the status bar was full but nothing happened for a good three minutes. F5'd again, and now the status bar is about .75 full and nothing happens. All further F5s have the same result.

Not sure what day where you have to deliver the invitation to the dragons, but I was going too fast and now my tree is a bit droopy (and I wasn't able to reset it in time). There goes my perfect niceness sad.gif

Mine too! I hit enter to finish the line and BAM day complete and I have no clue what I picked because it's over.

Me three. sad.gif And I was doing so well, too.

Im laughing because I just reread last year's story and the Howlers are Skreega and her crew.

 

Skreega, still snarling every few seconds, frantically begins stuffing her mouth with the still-frozen mushrooms, not bothering to savor the taste.

 

Granted, frostburned as they are, they don’t taste like much.
