Re: Issues with the network difficulty / search mechanics

Actually, in many ways, what you choose to upgrade program wise has more affect on the game. Choose wisely grasshopper. Im starting to see that. I'm in a really frustrating place right now, all of my remaining programs take my full b coin capacity to upgrade, around 4k. So for the past few days I'v...

Re: Issues with the network difficulty / search mechanics

I'm mostly maxed out but I still have a few programs to upgrade. This is what's causing the apparent difference in level. Network level (or difficulty level as you call it) is a combination of not only the quantity, but also the quality of the nodes on the network. Those majority of nodes you have ...

Issues with the network difficulty / search mechanics

Hello, I recently reinstalled to check out the new update and I've noticed something that isn't adding up. I'm hoping someone more experienced can explain how this mechanic works. Currently I'm core 4 difficulty lvl 17, almost 18. I'm mostly maxed out but I still have a few programs to upgrade. Belo...

Re: Request for faster program compilation.

Hey folks, been awhile since I had to uninstal hackers to make space. Just wanted to check in and see if any progress has been made towards reducing program compilation times.

Peace

Re: Request for faster program compilation.

This topic has taken some interesting turns. I agree that there are many troop combinations that are not necessarily the best bag for someone's buck, and that steps can be taken to minimize your compilation time. However the point of this topic is to discuss ways to speed up this process from the de...

Re: What it's really like playing hackers

I'm not sure if it was changed recently but I can't upgrade the compiler until at least core lvl 5 since the b coin storage can't be upgraded past lvl 7 at core 4. I can hold 4k but I need 8k to upgrade it. It would be more fitting if the compiler said it needed core 5 like other nodes but possibly ...

What it's really like playing hackers Core lvl 4

Edit: The following doesn't accurately depicte game play once you reach core lvl 5. I highly recommend pushing to core 5 as soon as possible. Hello, I've watched many videos on this game and although they are very informative and entertaining they all seem to leave out one huge aspect of the gamepla...

Re: Any tips for new players?

When fending off a hack does the firewall (hit points?) of captured nodes still apply? For example when an attacker captures a node in front of a strong point (turrets, black ice, ect) is a weaker node like a compiler more difficult for him to hold than nodes with more firewall like a sentry or code...

Re: Potential Update Ideas

Copying here what I posted in the shorter compilation times request thread, as I think it could make the game more playable: Instead of/in addition to shorter compilation times I'd be glad if there were a way to compile and store several batches of hacks, i.e. if databases were x3/x4 bigger at thei...

Request for faster program compilation.

Hello, I'd like to make a suggestion that I believe will keep many more people playing this game. I've recently started playing it and although it's a lot of fun I'm now at core level 4 and I have to wait about 30 minutes in between hacking. I'm guessing the trend of increasing wait times will grow ...
