Maybe? I'll put it before the others. I'm behind, because I want to spend diamonds, so I don't know what's going on. The thread I am talking about is this one: https://choices-stories-you-play.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:99859#479 You are welcome to post in it and give you opinion as well. I will link back to this in my post there.
Hi StoryGirl83! Remember when I said that I would let you know whether the progress from Book 1 is transfered to Book 2? Well, I just completed Book 1 and moved to Book 2, but unfortunately no progress was saved. I purchased most allies and weapons back in Book 1, but in Book 2 I had nothing (Only the default short sword was there). So it looks like the problem still exists, which is really disappointing. PB knows about it right? 🤨
They have been told many times, but it's unclear if they actually understand what the problem is, so feel free to try and report it to them and see what they say. Maybe they will actually understand this time.
I did sent them a message although they haven't answered yet... By the way I have a question concerning Diavolos and Luther... How can they be burned by Sei? Because I played TCaTF three times by now, and I ended having Diavolos on my side twice (The other one Kenna killed him), but Luther died by Kenna's hands all three times. Does Sei burn Diavolos/Luther if you make some sort of wrong choice? Or is it some sort of a mistake on their profiles? 🤔
I hope it's okay that I join in? The one time you failed to make Diavolos your ally, how much Legend score did you have? Because if you don't have enough, Kenna won't be able to fight. I once did a bad play where Diavolos had to fight his father alone because Kenna couldn't...
Oh, no problem of course you can join! If I remember correctly, I failed to make Diavolos my ally in my first playthrough when I didn't use diamonds (And didn't use the walkthrough), although it was a long time ago and I can't remember my score, but I remember that Kenna did kill Luther herself. So if it all depends on the score, then that's why in my other two (Where I used a walkthrough to get all +Legend and most diamond choices) Kenna and Diavolos killed Luther together, and they were still allies. Thank you for the answer! 😄
Sorry that they haven't answered. I wish I could help you more, but unfortunately, I don't know what to do about that problem. If you have twitter, there is a former member here who knows how to fix it. I can give you his twitter handle, if you'd like.
Hi. I know that this topic is a bit old, but I still haven't found an answer.
I've been reading posts concerning TC&TF, and I've noticed your post about glitch in Book 2, deleting every diamond choice done in Book 1 (saving Tevan and Severin, acquiring Kor-Kitar and other great weapons).
Due to stupid Pixelberry's idea of cutting diamond reward (one instead of two after chapter), I've removed the game from my new phone forever, and I'm using only my second, older phone with old version (from 2018, already with added daily bonus for commercials, but still with 2 diamonds for chapter).
I'd like to ask: how you avoided this glitch? Was it caused by the fact that you had newer version? And since which version this bug was fixed - after or before cutting diamond reward by Pixelberry? Or is it determined by totally different factor, like phone model and its system (Apple or Android)?
Sorry for (probably) stupid question, but I just want to know how to avoid the glitch. Can you show me the ropes? Or if there already exists a thread where there is a solution for this problem, may I ask you for giving me link to this thread?
I'll be very indebted if you help me, because I like this series, and the bug spoils the whole pleasure.
I wish I did know how to fix it. I have, thankfully, not had it happen in my own game, but as SonsuzEvren said, Rory has said he does know how to fix it and has in the past told me to direct people to contact him via twitter: https://twitter.com/swaf30 The link SonsuzEvren included could work, too, but he's not told me to direct people there in the past, so I figure I'll give you the twitter link.
Btw: you still get two diamonds per new chapter, no matter which version of the app you use. They released a blog where they said it's back the way it was. The one diamond per chapter only lasted about one day until they fixed this.
I thought of something I don't believe is part of the current walkthrough formatting discussion and figured I'd just send you a message since that blog post seems fairly inactive now. For choices where one is technically the "right" option but without any specific outcome (like and achievement or a +SituationalScore), do we want
Choice! (No effect)
Choice (No effect) <--Correct
I think I've seen the third one most often. It's the most descriptive, but could also be confusing.
There actually is a different between choice 2 and choice 3. Choice 2 is a situation where you get a silent effect, usually in a competition or mini game that it's the correct answer and if you don't get enough correct answers you don't win whatever it is, but for whatever reason they don't have a visible effect system. Choice 3 is for cases where it's factually correct, but it's not really relevant that it's correct other than a general trivia, such as guessing someone's identity when they are totally cool with it if you guess wrong. Also as for the being confusing, that's why a lot of those have a note underneath them explaining in further detail what they mean. Ideally all of them would, but that's probably a question to ask people.
As for not posting there, it may be inactive, but it's still where I will be looking for information when I get to the next stage of it. It's a very big project and there are too many variables to take on for what I initially posted, so at some point I will be making a second blog post with additional variables based off comments in there.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Does my explanation make sense?
You have to ask her that. As far as I know, contact is only necessary if a warning, official or unofficial, is given and several warnings result in a block. Since you haven't been contacted, it means she considered it to be wrong but not wrong enough to officially warn you. As I said, you need to wait for her to come back. Then you two can have a proper conversation about it. It will likely take some hours since it's night for her. So please be patient.
Hey, I didn't want to bother you, but I think it's time to do something to organize the discussion threads. There is a "filter" button where we can add categories like "Off-topic" or "Announcements" (where admins/mods can add threads like the new scenes one), we can add more specific categories like "Fanarts" or "Polls", but I think making an Off-topic category is a priority since everything is disorganized. To add a category you just have to hover over "filter" and an "edit" button will appear, there you can add "Off-topic" or whatever you see fit. I'm asking you because only admins can add new categories there. I think doing this will help us keep things tidy. What do you think about it? Thanks for your time!
Thank you! I can indeed sort them into the new categories (those you added are great), so I'll start right away.
Btw, I think we should make an announcement about the changes, so people will start adding the correct category when they add a new thread.
Yeah, I was thinking about that when I was sorting all the threads, maybe we can call it "Support" or "Help"? And when we make the thread about this we can explain what kind of topics go where, so no one gets confused.
Yeah, we definitely need to update the walkthroughs to reflect the current options. Looks like so far it's RoE1 (Ch4) and TF1 (Ch7&8). We'll need to actually play those books to get the actual options since it doesn't look like anyone screenshot them. I'm early in a replay of TF1, so I probably haven't reached those chapters yet. I don't buy the diamond options, but I could at least find out the exact wording and cost and screenshot them. Not sure where I am in my RoE playthrough. I think I will start a blog about this so that we have a centralized location where we can collect the info. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
I think someone found one of those the other day, because they added a diamond choice I don't recall seeing before.
And add SonsuzEvren into the moderator table as Discussion moderator? I think Sel might’ve forgotten and gotten side-tracked. Also Mel got mod rights during the last attack, so she could be added on the table too? MondlichtPanda. You don’t need to change my listing unless you want to (I’m fine just being listed under rollback since the others do more than me in discussions). I don’t know if I’m missing or forgetting someone else.
I cannot edit the table as that page is restricted only to admins. :)
Okay, updated. Are you sure you don't want me to update you. Also Sollowrains is listed as thread monitor, but she's listed on her page as a discussions monitor. I left hers alone, too, but since you brought it up, I'd thought I'd ask your opinion.
lol. Honestly it doesn't matter to me (about how I'm listed). I think I only played with the rollback option once (on my own edit) to see what happened and it was huge and I was like... "oh... ok. next time, revert not rollback!" and I think I'm a discussion mod mainly because of what happened last attack, so the others know more about what's going on there than I do.
I think Sollowrains does both? I think she helps keep an eye with threads on the wiki as well as discussions (I didn't know that there was a difference?) but so does Andisimon? I think our "duties" all overlap each other... but Sollowrains and SonsuzEvren both help in both areas, I think.
I’m sorry I haven’t been here yesterday, because my week starts from Sunday and ends in Thursday (not Monday and Friday like most of people here XD.) So yeah, I might disappear a lot during the week due to my busy schedule.
As for my position, as far as I believe thread and discussion are different words for the same job. If you go to users list, you would see discussions moderators are listed under thread moderators and not discussions. So..yeah it’s the same for me, but that’s up to you if you want to change me to match the rest.
Okay, cool. I just saw what was listed on your user page and I was confused. If they are the same, I'm totally good with keeping it that way. Besides I was planning on honoring Jadelady's request and leave hers as is, so since you are cool with it, I'll leave it be.
I'm wondering if you (and all admins) think it is a good idea to give all the collectables a special emoji, like 🔎 for clues? We used that at least for Veil of Secret for clues. So I was adding this magnifying glass to the first book of Endless Summer for the clues as well and I think it looks much more clear now on to what choices you have to take to find everything.
You can remove it again if you don't agree with it, of course, but I think that will help everyone in deciding in one quick moment if something is worth to spend diamonds on. And maybe we can find other (or maybe just this one, I think that works too) emoji's for example the tapestries in Bloodbound and Tears in Nightbound. Everything that gives extra bonus scenes if you collect them all.
What do you think? If you agree with it, I like to do the same for book 2 of Endless Summer and continue on the other books that have them :)
The reason the magnifying glass is used in VoS and D&D2 is because they are used in those books. I don't believe they were used in ES. WE could consider using them like we are considering using clock emojies and put them after the phrase Choice #. On that note, have you voted on the walthrough blog post. That's one of the items in consideration.
Since you said I could send you a message, I hope you don't mind me doing so.
Considering that we're both AtV fans, how did you feel about the ending? I thought it was pretty disappointing, but I don't really blame the writers. I believe it's clear that it got cancelled, so they had to wrap a lot of things in such little time. I'm sure they tried their best at it, though. I picked the sacrifice ending, btw. I'm just not sure if I'll ever replay it.
Speaking of replaying, I'm currently going over TC&TF 3 again. Recently I got to the chapter which Kenna rescues Dom from Hex. The only bad thing I have to say about this amazing series is about the way the writers handled Dom's romance. Look how many LIs Kenna had and how they could end. Dom had fewer LIs and he only could end up together with Kenna. I mean, I love them together and they're my favourite couple from Choices, but I wanted to see him with Sei and Rose as well.
About current books, I'm behind on all of them. I don't really have a lot of free time nowadays, so I don't really have a lot to say about them. I really liked BSC book 2's first chapter, but I know you aren't a fan of this series.
It's nice to hear from you. I absolutely don't mind you doing so. I'm happy to have someone to chat with on these books.
So AtV first. I was not thrilled with the ending. It felt far too abrupt. I get that it was canceled. As you said, that's pretty clear, but I think they could have done more with the ending, giving us an epilogue for each choice. Even with the sacrifice route, they could have shown Eos and Pax afterward. I picked the option to give it to both groups and I am currently playing it again. I am disappointed in the ending, but I still love the story over all.
I hear you about Dom's romances. Personally I like him best with Sei and I really wish he could have actually ended up with her, so I think it's a pity they went that route. Overall though it is my favorite series for many reasons and since the romance wasn't so much a big deal to me, it's only a minor annoyance that Dom can't end up with someone other than Kenna. Besides I can pretend that he did. I don't think it says that he doesn't, just never says that he does.
I'm caught up on two: The Royal Heir and Desire & Decorum. I have read chapter one of BSC2 and while I'm still not a super fan, I have to say it starts off decently and I did enjoy the first chapter. Now I just need the rest of the book to impress me and I might change my mind about the series.
Yeah, I hear you. It was a very disappointing ending. I still love the story, but the ending don't make me want to replay it.
I agree that Dom's romace is only a minor annoyance. That's why I said it was the only bad thing I could think about TC&TF. Which of the 3 books is your favourite? I'm pretty excited about the possibility of a spin-off.
I dropped The Royal Heir and I decided to not read D&D's book 3 after its book 2. I was never really a fan of TRR, but I thought it became good around the end of book 2 and book 3 was a decent read overall. But I was against a new sequel to it. It was obvious the writers had plans to actually end it with book 3. They only did TRH because of the fans asking for it. Exactly the opposite of what happened with AtV, huh?
I was reading your lists on favorite series and less than favored. We have some very similar tastes overall, with some difference of opinion on some series. It's no wonder we're big fans of AtV and TE 2.
