Many problems may be a result of the HTML5 caching system. Luckily, there's an easy way to test whether this is the issue.

Home screen (menu):

Think your home screen isn't working? Try adding the following to your address:
http://adventurecow.com/stories/630/destinyquest-infinite/home =>
http://adventurecow.com/stories/630/destinyquest-infinite/home?appcache=0

If this fixes the problem, let us know! We'll know where to look to fix it.

Game player:

WARNING: Your URL will be different (the number won't be 777).

DestinyQuest Infinite / Trouble purchasing DQI?
« on: November 21, 2014, 06:13:30 PM »
How do I know if my purchase is secure?

Adventure Cow uses Stripe to process our payments. This means that all payment information is encrypted. None of your credit card information is ever stored on our servers.

As a secondary layer of security, we encrypt all purchasing communications with adventurecow.com via SSL. You can make sure your communications are encrypted by looking to the top left of your address bar. If you are using a secure connection you should see a padlock, and the URL should start with "https://adventurecow.com". If you do not see the padlock or this address, email us.

Your address bar should look like one of these (depending on the type of browser you use):



What currencies do you support?

We currently support US dollars (USD) and Great Britain pounds (GBP). Regardless of your local currency, you should still be able to purchase DQI using either option. Your bank will translate the charge into the appropriate currency. Check your bank for details on fees - each bank is different.

Help! I still can't purchase DQI!

Email us at support@adventurecow.com and we'll help fix the problem. If you can find where you got stuck in this list of screenshots let us know.

DestinyQuest Infinite / Re: WARNING: Don't play DQI on IE!...yet

Update: This bug has been fixed. IE support isn't as great as Chrome or Firefox, but you can use it if you wish.

DestinyQuest Infinite / What's your hero's name?
« on: November 14, 2014, 12:18:38 AM »
I'll start. Mine's Vorbis. It's named after the format of our sound files (MP3 would be a pretty odd hero name!) It's also apparently a character in Discworld, but I haven't read that.

Oh and also, I fought Cinders, on 426 - it says it's immune to Ignite but I got it to half work.

« on: November 14, 2014, 12:09:04 AM »
Hey I just found a bug. I was in a really long fight with the dragon, and the music stopped after a while. What's up with that? I was using Firefox on Windows, can give you details if you need them.

DestinyQuest Infinite / FIXED: Don't play DQI on IE!...yet
« on: November 10, 2014, 05:05:05 PM »
Warning: There's apparently a weird bug in Internet Explorer causing the game to load the music...over and over again. We'll get to the bottom of it shortly but in the meantime please use Chrome or Firefox.

Technical Support / Clearing your HTML5 cache
« on: November 04, 2014, 08:46:58 PM »
You may be familiar with the cache, but Adventure Cow also uses a unique cache for offline (and soon to be offline) apps: the HTML5 cache.

Because we are constantly updating our story reader, you may need to empty this cache. Instructions:

Firefox:

The offline cache can be cleared for each site separately using the "Remove..." button in Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network -> Offline data.
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Using_the_application_cache

Chrome:

Open the AppCache Internals page of Chrome (chrome://appcache-internals/) and delete your app. The complete local storage will be wiped for that app.

Coding is hard work! A weekend project gets you a weekend's worth of work. Grass, the core engine for DestinyQuest Infinite, took years, so don't let it get you down that it takes a while.

How's your coding? Would you be interested in helping us take the project open source?

General Discussion / Re: Suggestions for YT series features
« on: October 09, 2014, 11:24:37 AM »
Hey Villain, well for me the big cow in the room is DestinyQuest Infinite, since it's our very first gamebook (!) and we're publishing it in just a few weeks (!).

The big cow in that room is that it's not public, so you don't have access to it.

But the big cow in that room is that since I built it I, um, can get around those particular restrictions. It'd be cool to do a read and maybe a podcast style chat about game design afterwards. Thoughts? You can email me at chris @ this .com if you want to work on details.

Also, I didn't know you had a VM read series. Very cool.
