HTML 5 2020 Feedback



  • ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ That's how HTML5 works for me. It's been so for over 20 hours now. So no outers for me.

    If anyone needs to see an example of how poorly the html5 version runs, just try to run the game.

  • Welp, I can't play. It gives me message about HTML 5 and then just green screen and nothing happens. I have newest version of Google Chrome. Somebody got tips how to get this game working again....?

    game does not work well if your using Puffin browser on moblie phone and you switch to HTML mode for playing Outer Realms or BtH events.  I'm playing on phone and sent support a email about the issue hopeing they would have a alternative to allow us to play game.. they sent back word saying that unfortunately  Puffin isn't continued being developed and that HTML is for computer/laptop.. so solution: get a laptop. Soon when full change to HTML is made those of us who play game on Mobile   will stop playing.  will there be an alternative provide for those of us who started playing on mobole,other than the suggestion to play Four Kingdoms? I don't want to start another game/castle when I have worked so hard for years on this one.  grrrh

    that equipment storage is really slow in html5, with flash player it works fine. 

    another big problem is that those world maps, html5 is just too slow for looking something from the map.

    HTML is very slow and glitchy..unplayable at times.. RIP GGE when you switch other events over...
    "Revenge" sounds so mean, that's why I prefer to call it "Returning the favor."
  • After more thean a year: Still lots of white field in the HTML5 version.

    Have you checked the compatibility of your browser with HTML 5?

    Same here. tried html a few times and kicked out so many times that i returnd to Flash. 5 times in one hour playing is not strange when on html version. Mainly on world maps.

    Last weekend just one minut on horizon. just taking the dailly bonus and then wanted to start building but kicked out. Did not even get the opportunity to spend money for building.

    And now i can not play storm anymore. no difference for chrome, firefox or whatever.

    And i am not the only one in my union of players. all the players who just have normal acces instead of portable device i think. a lot of players are stopping the game for this reason.
    you do not want to play a game for reloading each 5 minutes.

    lol, did all updates, removed history. played html version 10 minutes before the next crash.
    could take one island in storm event.
    now back to flash again. Html was so slooooooooooow for me before crashing.
    no more storm, horizon or outher realms for me????

    Have you checked the compatibility of your browser with HTML 5?
    That just has nothing to do with it!

    Your HTML5 code needs a lot of work!

    So in my case here is the so called "test"

    Great, i have almost the top score note..
    Everything should work fine!

    But in reality when i try to go to storm island saddly now in HTML5 server it is the same story:

    This above picture is my main castle.. after minutes of loading..

    and it refresh alot by himself just to do nothing.. still i can use the menu to travel to other castles..

    And voila, i just arrive to my storm island castle..

    This must be a joke, no!...

    What developers tell it is not true... "poor players might be running incompatible HTML5 browsers to play game"
    It is all a lie!...

    False assumption.. It is the developers as always that are not doing their job well!.. and put the "charriot ahead the horse.."

    Before it use to be flash developers fault for their coding mistakes.. and now for HTML5 what it will be... right excluding the suppose "not compatible browsers"..

    I tested alll browsers here and it is all the same..

    Negative note for developers and for this decision to move things to HTML5 servers without being quitely prepared for it!  

    Unless you want to offer all your players this high performance towers, for a full gaming experience _and assuming it runs fine there_

    like those you might have in GGS office!

    This whole HTML5 thing is a big farse!...
    cause it is not for all players _ and again assuming that it might work with some with highly advanced pc`s_ and you are just excluding 90/ per cent of your player base out with this HTML5 disaster!

    and.. i am not running a that old pc andd opperating system!..
    Other HTML5 things work, yours just do not work!

    It is you to blame.... not the players!... and no one else like you used to do in flash version..

    Totally agree Didee. If GGE can't make this game compatible for a mobile smartphone, then I will most likely drop this game. I cannot see how GGE can ignore the fact that many people use their phone to play this game. 

    As I mentioned in another thread, perhaps there is something I'm missing in terms of playing this game on a phone. I use Puffin as well. So far, so good. But this HTML5 is a disaster. 

    You want to know what is going on at support? Oh, yeah. Send an email to xyzxyz and then have them tell you an email address to ask for a phone number so you can get an address for international mail to Mars. Once Elon Musk finally lands on Mars they'll tell you where to go in the Andromeda Galaxy to ask extraterrestrial intelligence what GGE support is truly doing because nobody on Earth knows what they do. The logic here is that we can't ever know what they do because they don't do anything! - dliu3

    No more berimond for players who can not play on html. 
    It affect the food on main castle and many rewards.

    tried html5 this moring again and crash after 10 minutes , got normal internet acces on a normal pc with all normal updates. windows 10 and play on chrome. 
    tried without sound .
    tried html many times now and each time crash within 10 minutes. 

    adobe flash now and without sound and low qaulity image it is really fast. but no more berimond, outher realm, horizon and storm.

    why the hell do you keep using this html5 it makes the game unplayable,

       I'm from the spilgames server and the HTML5 version is practically impossible to play, the game just crashes. I made an account on the official website to compare, it is slower than the flash, but it still works well. HTML5 does not work on spilgames. I don't want to lose my account to which I dedicated years. Make HTML5 lighter

    the game was ok without this HTML crap  so gge its not broke don't try to fix it 
  • I haven't noticed this before but I can seem to move around my castle and moving building around my castle as well isn't working. I cant either collect the resources. This also affects outer realms and i'ts really disappointing. If nothing can be done about this then I would have to ask for compensation because of a dysfunctional outer realms event THAT IS BASED OFF of having high might points from buildings which isn't possible when you cant edit your own damn castle.

    GGE is a game that is played 24 hrs a day, yet it has no interest in  making sure you can access the game 24 hrs a day ie via mobile devices.

    I guess it would prefer that you password share, or share accounts so someone can access your account 24/7

    Can GGE possibly send a player survey to ask about HTML performance? I have seen quite a few complaints about disconnections and other issues on the lands that are restricted to HTML only now. It is not quite that bad for me, but if the entire game switches I'm not sure I would enjoy playing anymore. And some might not be able to play at all. I understand that Flash is going away but there must be some way to improve performance, or possibly make a standalone game client before the end of the year.

    HTML5 version is slow to load and I get regular messages from Firefox telling me the script is slowing the page down.

    I have tried Chrome, Firefox and Opera and on all of them the player experience in Flash is far superior. Quicker to load and more responsive.

    Forcing players to use HTML5 is basically telling your customers to go elsewhere for a better gaming experience. You should continue to allow all areas to be accessed in Flash until you have got the bugs sorted out in the HMTL version. Otherwise you are basically forcing us all to have a downgrade in our gaming experience.
