Hi, John. I was so excited when I saw the update. I started playing and then lost all my progress. I had a saw mill, 150 mana, at least 100 gold, one completed contract and a nearly full warehouse. Was this supposed to happen?

Hi John. Thank you so much for the great update. I love it! All the new stuff is fabulous! My only issue right now is that I am stuck on a contract that requires a pistol. I think it used to be under weapons, but it seems to be gone now. I apologize for posting this again. I posted it in a different thread, but wasn't sure if you would see it. Thank you so much!

I have just sent version 2.0.2 to be reviewed.
The following have hopefully been fixed
lack of pistol
game progress loss when game crashes as it seems to do somehow.

added contact developer button in options so can get emails about
how bugged the game is quicker and speed up the workflow.

Many thanks to one and all

I am feeling a bit lazy so I’ll post it here and hope you see it. I am running the latest released version of KC, iOs 13.7. When I go into the ”Fight” screen the game always crash. It does not matter what I do, click on the positioning squares, click fight etc, the game seems to freeze for a bit before crashing, when logging back in some game progress is lost. Is this a known bug?

There also seems to be a few bugs with the ”Fired wood” and weapons. E.g no matter how many Fired Wood I create, I always need 2 in order to create the longbow.

Since this is a public beta, the game isn’t going to be restarted at some point is it? I don’t want to get really far and then lose everything.

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Had a few thoughts.

I built a second crop farm but the number of crops I can harvest at one time does not increase. So what’s the point of multiples? Making it so each additional one you purchase increases your harvest would be a great thing.

Also: I built a shop but it didn’t tell me what item would have its sale price increased like it used to. I wish we could choose what type of shop to build from a list.

I am loving the beta and have spent hours playing it today. Thank you so much for all the hard work!

Hello all The fight bugs there were many have been fixed. If you play the beta you will lose the progress as i am not sure if the game save file will work on a fixed full release. Long bow will be fixed Multiples of buildings do not give any bonus as yet as do multiples of axe or spears. Shops are generic at the moment. There are a lot of bugs that do require the main files to be modified so any progress would be lost to make the game work properly. I am trying to limit the restarts to bare minimum. Thank you.

Hi,
I remember you saying the places are limited for the Beta version, I was wondering if it would be possible for me to join the testing or are all the places taken?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Wednesday, September 30, 2020

They were all taken. I missed it as well. I also posted some commentsin the knight commander app thread, voicing some interface issues I had. Keep up the good workl

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Thursday, October 1, 2020

So sad I am going to lose my progress but understand. When do you think we’ll be out of beta? Can’t wait for the new full one!

Also, quests with things like coconuts, pineapples and pumpkins would be cool. Lol.

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Monday, October 5, 2020

I was playing the game and had an idea for a future update. What if an option could be added for the women to have children? This could be an option you click to try for a baby. The result could be random. It would be an alternative to always having to purchase an additional person, but it would also mean her energy levels would be decreased while pregnant. This might be to difficult to code. Was just a thougt.

I've been in contact with the developer and have given him some ideas. you might see them in the newer versions. However, since I have about 600 mana/magical power--actual numbers are 550, I can't make a stone cutter. How can I then cut stones to make blocks? see contract 10 for why.

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Tuesday, October 6, 2020

I am on contract 10 too. I made the mistake of using my manna for a glass maker. :( Should have gotten a stone cutter! Hinesight is always 20/20 I suppose.

New version of the game is out, BTW. Quests are back. Bonuses for buildings aren’t yet though.

Submitted by John from Wood… on Tuesday, October 6, 2020

The stone cutter can be built from the buildings tab.
Also in 2.0.4 there are serious bugs with healer, trader and repair tasks
do not use them until 2.0.5 which will be along sometime.

Many thanks

Can someone tell me where i find the rubber trees they are not in the crop farm any more thanks.

Submitted by vue on Tuesday, October 6, 2020

hello found a bug cant seem to make a super machine even tho i have 5k energy req has anyone encounter this bug ?

Submitted by vue on Tuesday, October 6, 2020

hello sorry i have 5k mana but still cant buy a super machine and i found another bug it's the repair. when u click repair it will crash the game. and when you try to get back on the app the app will crash. can someone tell the dev ? thanks

Submitted by Ashleigh Piccinino on Wednesday, October 7, 2020

In reply to by vue

Hello,
That's 5K of mana you need for your machines. It's not energy. Also, did you notice that you can't use mana to auto-build/make things anymore as in the older version? for example, you could use your magical power to creat things you didn't want to manually create/make things you didn't want to manually make? you could also use it to instantly heal someone, but no longer, I'm afraid. maybe, you can talk to the dev about that.

Those quests are hard. How are you supposed to get let's say 76 water in 3 turns? Uh, no. and i cna't retry the quest either. also, I can't really scroll, I have to swipe to do anything. It is starting to get a bit old.

Submitted by vue on Thursday, October 8, 2020

oh yea thanks it was mana for got. but found a bug with fight tho. so i won the fight and it says in history that i won 5k gold and 2k mana but when i when to the shop and check i didnt get that amount of gold and mana any reason why ? and have you guys came upon this bug/problem ? oh and btw is there a way i can hunt or increase the hunt for meat ?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, October 8, 2020

Have more people do the hunting. Now that i have 10 in my what ever this is, I can now get about 30 units of meet per hunt.

Submitted by Rhodie on Friday, October 9, 2020

Hi folks,
Has anyone managed to compleet this. If so any tips would be appreciated.
Many thanks to all and keep safe

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Saturday, October 10, 2020

I'm on that now. You need a rubber well which I think you can purchase in the super machines thing. I'm doing a lot of fights to gain this, as I bought the cloth one and the fire one. woops? I'm actually almost done with this particular contract. I just need to do a lot of fights.

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Sunday, October 11, 2020

Save up and get the storekeeper. Also increase the size of your warehouse and both of these will help you complete quests easier. Storekeeper can be upgraded too.

Haven’t done any fights. I am on contract 16 I think. Trying to build a windmill. Has taken a while.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, October 12, 2020

Nice hint on the store keeper, but I dunno where it went. All I know is he stored 50 of wood, food, etc. I really wish this thign came with some kind of manual. I'd write one but I'm not all that good, and it might take me a while as each of us has our own playing methods.

anyway just some food for thought. Stuck on contract 18.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, October 12, 2020

one suggestion that can be tested with the beta testers maybe could be this.

If we have spare gold, can we have a way to maybe exchange some of that for mana in case we don't want to do a lot of fights?

Submitted by Harmony 36 on Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Hi i love this game but for some reason the game keeps crashing and voiceover doesn't respond in the game and i cant do anything. Has anyone else noticed this bug?? Thanks.

Submitted by Exodia on Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Hello, how exactly do I equip the weapons for the villagers so that they can win fights

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

You are supposed to be able to double tap and hold on the people but I can't get that to work in the fight screen. See the link I posted 2 comments ago.

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Exchanging gold for manna would be awesome. I am stuck on contract 18 because I don’t know how to fight and don’t have a way to get more manna. I don’t have a rubber well. :(
The storekeeper has multiple levels. Upgrading him will make you store more stuff automatically but be warned, you will need to increase your warehouse! This can be helpful if you want to complete more quests a bit faster.

The game is so awesome; I have been brainstorming all kinds of products that could be added. Lol. It is so much fun.

Submitted by vue on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

you don't need to go to fight to equip them. go to the menu where you pick them to do chores but instead of picking them double tap and hold there name and it will pop out to equip your peeps.

Submitted by vue on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

does anyone came upon the bug when u win a fight and go to history it will say won gold/mana. do you guys get the amount it says or no ? cause when i win a fight i don't get the amount of gold and mana it says i won.

Submitted by John from Wood… on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Thank you all for the interest in the game.
People that are getting crashes please send me your game save file to do this
go to the shop options back up game and mail it to me.

A manual is being slowly written as features mature and are stable

Version 2.0.7 has both types of disasters in it they are both switchable in the menu.
There is a maths bug that if you have for instance 4937 mana it will state you have 5k mana
this has hopefully been fixed in 2.0.7 and above.

Please do not get offended when i do not respond to every post on every platform as
it takes a lot of time and some platforms are easier to use than others.
Thank you all

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

I don't knwo where to post this, but I figured out how to change weapons, In saying all of that, the person interface needs to be a lot cleaner. It right now is a bit clunky. My suggestions are in the recording but basically:

  • have a check box or select person button next to the person.
  • have actions along the bottom of the screen such as do task with a list of tasks, change weapons, hybernate, etc.

I hope this link helps anyone and the dev a bit.

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Thursday, October 15, 2020

Do I just choose a weapon and then fight? It wants me to choose things like back right, back left, etc. I find this confusing. I need 10K mana to get the rubber well. I have 7.2.

Forgot to say the other day that the storekeeper makes it so you don’t have to get food any more. That is super helpful. No more expending energy.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, October 15, 2020

No, you assign the weapons from the main screen and assign players to the 6 positions at the bottom of the screen.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, October 15, 2020

in stable, I can reproduce the fight crash where the app will just, crash and you lose all of your fights. Can this pretty please be looked into? I believe I have a sysdiag from this morning if it is wanted.

Submitted by John from Wood… on Thursday, October 15, 2020

Version 2.0.6 is waiting review if it gets through then
it fixes the battle field bug.
It introduces a lot of others.
Version 2.0.8 is lovely *smile

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, October 15, 2020

Can those be fixed then before release? I don't feel comfortable running a public stable build that will, in fact, crash, a lot. What should be look for when this dropps?

Submitted by Rhodie on Thursday, October 15, 2020

Hi folks, trust all are keeping well
Has anybody got pastcontractt 32. I did and they went back to number 1
Is this a bug or just the end
Take care & thanks

Submitted by John from Wood… on Friday, October 16, 2020

Hello
I release a version to test flight to see if there any major issues with the build.
When they occur i fix them.
After the bug reports have stopped i release the next version to test flight
and publish the previous version.
This way the app store version has less bugs than the previous published version.
I am attempting to stop the number of restarts in future versions but when a definition file needs fixing
then there is no option.

Contracts cycle after contract 35 back around to contract 0
This is current at this time more contracts will be added as when time allows.

Thank you
