Whats stopping me from buying all the stock in my game and then selling at the highest price to turn around and buying all the stock againRight, It's time to come clean.
.... I've taken the liberty of putting all the enteries in the jam up for sale in my YoYoCoin market. You can now try to make a quick fake buck by buying shares in other people games (or your own) and hoping the prices will go up and down.
I've included everyone I could see a download link for in the game topic. If I forgot you and you want to have your game be a part of this send me a message, and likewise if you don't want anything to do with it and I should remove your game from the listing.
This was a weird but fun jam. Can't wait to play all your games!
A $15 purchase fee (so you have to make at least that much every cycle to make it worth it), the risk of the stock price going down (no matter how unlikely), and your own patience because the share prices only change once per minute and in the case of the games not by a whole lot.Whats stopping me from buying all the stock in my game and then selling at the highest price to turn around and buying all the stock again
I can do both. I can remove individual accounts from the database, and while not currently set up writing code that rejects connections from specific IP ranges is pretty simple. I don't doubt my hosting company also has some tools for the job, but I mainly use it for freelancing so I've never had the need to see what they offer.Ip ban? or just he individual accounts, cause now I really want to make a bot that takes over the stock market
The funny thing is I kind of wanted to do the same.now I really want to make a bot that takes over the stock market
You can try, but you'll never find my bots...I do reserve the authority to ban people trying to make multiple accounts to try and give themselves an advantage.
You could, you could do that.You can try, but you'll never find my bots...
I'll probably disguise my bots as other people's usernames over different devices, so that whoever actually owns the account will get banned
I wasn't actually going to do this before, but when we started discussing it, I couldn't resist
Inadvertinly ruining the fun of people who (even if there probably aren't many of them) want to try to get a good score on the leaderboard without having to compete with a dozen bots.Nah, I wouldn't be hacking other people's accounts and ruining their fun.
I would just be over lording the leaderboard, and that's all that matters
Aww, leave my poor server alone. I pay good money for it. Professional webhosting isn't cheap, ya know.If i had my own server, and its sole propose was to open the game and do random data changes to send to your server
effectively I could DDOS a game
Oh, well, fine. If you say so.Inadvertinly ruining the fun of people who (even if there probably aren't many of them) want to try to get a good score on the leaderboard without having to compete with a dozen bots.
I'd rather not implement whitelist accounting so people actually need verification for their accounts to be allowed to trade or put any unusually active trader under watch, so I'll kindly ask you that if you do actually want to make a bot do do so with my consent and knowledge and follow some ground fairness rules. I'm expecting like twenty or thirty people to play this at most, most of them once or twice over a two week period. You won't have to make many requests before you are straying away from the bell curve.
A bot tournament isn't a bad idea, but I find network administration dreadfully boring and there is a limit how much effort I can justify on defending a project that is going to be dead in two weeks by design.
The rules pretty clearly state that the game needs to be posted in the Games topic, which you admittedly just said you didn't do. So you answered your own question.uhm, why wasn't my game added, i posted it in the discord, was too lazy to post it here and was too tired.
Yikes. I compiled the game with GameMaker Studio 1.4, and I've seen other anti-virus programs overreact to my games before, but not Windows Defender. Thanks for the heads up!
Are you sure?I notice in YoYoCoin, all the stock markets are the same.
It would be interesting if, after the jam, the server could run updates on each stock and randomly change the graph then.or do you mean they all look exactly the same on the graph? Because yeah, guilty of that. I was too lazy to even try to distinguish them. As an afterthought maybe I should have used different colors at the least.
It would be interesting if, after the jam, the server could run updates on each stock and randomly change the graph then.
Btw, does the graph only run if YoYoCoin is running? It never seems to be updating every time I check.
Its because Windows sees the single exe as an not signed by Microsoft exe and thus windows defender will complain, this seems to be fixed for gms 2Single exe. Does that make a difference?
a way around this for gms 1 is packaging as a zip tho, which we recommend for the jamI feel like maybe in the future, the rules should maybe encourage the zip option over the .exe to avoid this situation as much as is possible?
seeing this thoAll entries should work on Windows as a standalone executable / compressed zip folder. No installers please. Your entry can also work in HTML5 and on other platforms, but most voters will be using Windows and therefore your entry should work primarily on windows in order to secure a decent amount of feedback.
This is a free market: Invest in however many stocks in whatever order you want for as much money as you dare risk! A lot of people are invested in games other than their own.Are we allowed to buy any stock we want? Or are we just supposed to invest in our own stock?
Not all shares are going down. Pat is invested heavily in @STEA, which like the other game shares have lower volume and aren't as affected by the news cycle.Lol we've got a hacker in YoYoCoin
pixel_teampat is gaining money while the graph is going down
I am looking at a very interesting list of your transactions revealing how you're gaming the system I've so ever carefully set up in a couple of afternoons. It would be very .... "unfortunate" if that information would leak to the public.I would reveal my secret, but then again SCREW THE LITTLE PEOPLE! MWAAH HAA HAAAAAA!
