This page serves as an F.A.Q. (frequently asked questions) by new players and old players alike.
The Choices App has tested out various "Daily Diamonds" frequencies before setting on its current "Five Diamonds Every 22 Hours" formula. This is noted on the App by the gift icon located at the bottom right corner, which turns orange when the timer has finished counting down from 22 hours.
In addition, a player can gain six diamonds for ending six chapters per day. The time this "day" resets depends on the player's location. Because Pixelberry's main office is in California, USA, it operates on GMT-7 during Daylight Savings Time (Pacific Daylight Time) from March 8, 2020 to November 1, 2020; and GMT-8 during Standard Time (Pacific Standard Time) from November 1, 2020 to March 14, 2021.
The Daily Reset occurs at 16:00 PST (which is midnight GMT); and at 17:00 PDT (which is midnight GMT). At this point, if the player ends a chapter (other than Chapter One), they should receive a pop-up ad that asks to play an ad. After watching the ad, the player gains a diamond. A maximum of six ads can be watched to earn six diamonds. If ending a chapter reveals a white-out screen, the ad will fail to load and the diamond cannot be earned with that chapter. If an error-message occurs (for example, "unable to load ad"), it is possible that all potential ads have played and the game will not allow you to earn extra diamonds. This can occur if the player diligently watches ads / gains diamonds every day without pause. If this happens, it is suggested that if the player backs-up his/her data with a Facebook account and launches the app on a different device (for example, switching from an Android device to an iPad, or vice versa), the player may be able to view new ads specific for the device and gain the daily diamond allotment.
Finishing new chapters gives 2 diamonds per chapter. These 2 diamonds are separate from the daily-diamond-for-watching-an-ad diamond. Technically, if a player finishes a new chapter after the daily reset time and has not finished six chapters yet, they could earn 2 + 1 ad diamond for the chapter.
Thus, on days where there are no new chapters released, a player can earn 11 diamonds. On days where one new chapter is released, a player can earn 13 diamonds. And on days where two new chapters are released, a player can earn 15 diamonds.
VIP is a paid subscription model that Pixelberry is testing in a small market. The editors and players here are not sure what the qualifications are, or if they were limited to a certain geographical location. Three books have been released under the VIP header (which is categorized as Early Access): With Every Heartbeat (released weekly starting December 19, 2019, concluding on March 26, 2020), Hot Couture (released weekly starting December 19, 2019, concluding on March 26, 2020), and A Very Scandalous Proposal (released weekly starting February 5, 2020 and currently ongoing).
The VIP subscription model differed between players. One subscription was $5 per week for 10 daily diamonds (in addition to the 5 daily diamonds) and unlimited keys, as well as 4 diamonds after each new chapter (up from 2 diamonds). Some players noted $5/week, $7/week, $10/week, $16/month, $20/month costs. The week subscription appeared to have a 70 bonus diamonds gift whereas the month subscription appeared to have a 270 bonus diamonds gift.
|Access||Daily Diamonds||Daily Diamonds Bonus||Daily Chapters||New Chapter Bonus|
|non-VIP||💎 5||none||💎 6||💎 2 each|
|VIP||💎 5||💎 10||💎 6||💎 4 each|
Thus, on days where there are no new chapters released, a player can earn 21 diamonds. On days where one new chapter is released, a player can earn 25 diamonds. And on days where two new chapters are released, a player can earn 29 diamonds.
Editors should not remove categories that say Early Access, even if the VIP book eventually becomes available to the general public. This includes:
- Early Access
- Early Access Walkthrough
- Characters Part of Early Access Stories
- Groups Part of Early Access Stories
The Royal Romance Beta Test
The Royal Romance, Book 1's beta test was also available to a small market beginning on or around November 1, 2019. It appeared that it was for new players (usually with a device that had never had the app before) in certain locations as well. They had only revised the first 5 chapters, rearranging certain scenes and moving the Corgi from Book 2 to Chapter 4 - as a gift from Prince "Liam" instead of Maxwell Beaumont.
The Chat stories were released around September 2017 and were also a test released to a small group of players. Not much information is known about them. Their game mechanics seem to have issues with coding. Only a few have been recorded for view on YouTube by Izzay Plays and Crazzy Plays.
