I like the new idea behind the space game. I hope you guys put back the big top slots in the rooms you removed it from since VIP 2  and bingo has no big top. Why do I bother getting to high rollers when I can't even go there and play my favorite game. We need new tasks, we need new tournaments (tired of crazy 8's being the only slot tournament) and we need more activities. Thanks

I am glad you like it! The plan is to cycle out different machines as our slots portfolio grows. Depending on how popular the game is, it may get moved to a more prominent spot, or moved into some of the side rooms. But the intention is that each slot we make will always have a spot in the casino, so no one needs to worry about not being able to play their favourite game. I definitely agree with you that it would be nice to cycle in some of our other slot machines for the tournament! That's something we've talked about doing, and it's on our list to look at once we get through some higher priority stuff.

This game is either broken or your time out error needs adjusting. I played this game for a total of three times and all three times I was kicked and here's why : it takes roughly an hour or more to fill the mission meter and by then you get kicked due to inactivity. How is that supposed to work? If you are going to create a fail safe to stop people from using a turbo controller ( which is exactly what you did ) maybe don't create a game that takes an hour to play. I was refunded all three times but, I am flat furious that this happened three times just as I unlocked the bonus I never got to play. In fact, I am officially over that game now.

This is correct; The Four Kings is not designed to be an idle clicker game. We try to encourage our players to be present and active while in the casino. I understand that's not for everyone - but I have seen some great idle clicker games coming out for Steam and mobile if that's more your thing.

So,,, you completely avoided the entire main issue. If it takes an hour to fill the mission meter and you are kicked for inactivity your basically admitting its a rigged slot to avoid. Is that correct? And I hate to break the news to you but, sitting at a slot machine pressing X for an hour manually or with assistance from a mod controller is STILL an idle click game.

No. It just means we don't support or encourage the use of scripts or turbo controllers in the casino.

For the record, I do not use or condone the use of assist items and I fully understand your stance on the issue. However, The point I am trying to make is that the game is obviously broken. No matter how you arrive at the hour or so needed to complete a mission task you will be kicked. This is a lose/lose scenario and it doesn't play well with your " this is a fair game " narrative.

Okay, perhaps I have misunderstood? Are you getting kicked out when you complete the mission? Or are you getting the regular timeouts where if you haven't touched the controller in 15 minutes then you are booted for inactivity?

If you are getting kicked out on completion of the mission, it's possible that could be a bug. If that's the case I would be happy to take more details, preferably either in the Bugs forum or over email at techsupport@digitalleisure.com, as appropriate. But if it's after 15 minutes of inactivity, then that is how the game has always been, and nothing is broken. If you are actively playing the game then you shouldn't get booted for inactivity. (Again, if you are actively playing, not using scripts or a turbo controller, *and* still getting booted for inactivity, that could be a problem that we would need to look into. The Bugs forum or over email at techsupport@digitalleisure.com would be the appropriate places to discuss that in greater detail.)

Okay, so here is the scenario : you sit down to play and the bonus objective is to fill the meter at the top left hand corner to trigger the mission. Only problem with this is ( and it has happened to me 3 separate times ) it takes roughly an hour ( I timed it @ 67 minutes on minimum bet ) to fill this meter. Then when the meter is full I was instantly kicked due to inactivity. Now, maybe it takes too long on a minimum bet to fill the meter and perhaps it fills faster on the higher bets but, that would STILL be unfair because that means your dictating how much I should and shouldn't be betting. And if it is setup that way for a reason then at least post a disclaimer saying " mission only triggers on higher bets. "

That is helpful, thank you! smile The missions are designed so that the bar will fill faster with a larger bet, but the smaller bets will still fill it as well. The size of your bet shouldn't affect whether or not the mission triggers, just when it does. So as long as you are actively playing the game, you shouldn't be kicked when the mission triggers, and you definitely shouldn't be kicked because the mission triggers. Getting kicked at that point is not something we saw happen during testing, but we are giving it another test through now to be sure.

Nice. I was kind of hoping to see more people having this problem. As I stated, it could just be a minimum bet issue as it takes so long and I was able to duplicate the issue on three separate occasions. Its kind of hard to blame my connect when I run hard wired and get 120 up and down. Thanks for looking into it.
