Just started up the game and I see some problems:
1) Most buttons on menu screen don't do anything
2) When starting a new game every menu has atleast one button not working
The game has 2019 in the title so I expect this to be made by the person that made Hardware Tycoon.
This game literally becomes impossible an hour in. The competitors which magically come up with 1070 MHz processors when it's physically impossible to put enough pipelines to reach that. I filled the entire cpu with pipelines and the smallest sized core there is and i could only reach 840 Mhz. And this is ignoring the fact that you need to leave your cpu with a stability of 2.35% so you don't pass the 249 watt limit
Also you literally have to go into the negatives to be able to make your first cpu. There's only just enough money given for the essential buildings, and if you aren't paused and pay the upkeep costs you won't be able to afford all the buildings required to make a cpu and get soft-locked for that game. I think adding a loan feature would be fine, and a game-over if you have a negative bank balance for say two months.
feels very unfinished looking forward to the next update
when is the new update comming? also i have an idea for next update: the amount of money you start whit is too low at least for me. i always bankroot.about 200K would be cool.
Hey i cant do anything. Like i can make a new game, but i cant start it.
can you help me out on that, please?
wdym? If youre in the menu did you make your names long enough, min 4 characters. If in-game did you try unpausing.
Pretty fun, looking forward to the next update.
The apple version does not open. I have a Catalina so It might just be because this game 32 bit but this computer can only run 64 bit games?
The mac version should be 64 bit
The HTML version works. I also have the same problem.
Well, I can play the game, but the problem is the background is black. I tried the browser version and the download version but I still get the same results. Is there any solutions for this?
Did you give up the project? It hasn't had updates in almost two years.
Not yet, Ive changed a lot with the next version but Ive been to lazy recently to finish it.
wich version of this game is even "playable"? the browser version or the downloadable version?
Both should be playable, although some people have issues with texture sizes.
the screen is black
when i finished loading in
How do I get 150nm process? The competition has it but I can't find it on the tech tree.
Also, is there a way to add more than one part onto an architecture without clicking every time? Do I drag with a specific key pressed?
Adding more parts no.
other processes and stuff yeah via console commands. There should be a devlog on gamejolt with all the commands.
enable cheats (needed to change things like money and time)
override cpu tuning menu open (opens cpu tuning menu so you can create cpus without having an architecture)
override cpu tuning single core
override cpu tuning multi core
override cpu tuning node
override cpu tuning clockspeed
override cpu tuning cores
Commands that don’t require cheats
show fps overlay
hide fps overlay
objectcount benchmarkbar (for debugging purposes to see when the game gets laggy in the benchmark menu)
!!!!!! - If the command requires a numeric value like: “set money 2000” you need to type “set money” hit enter and then enter the value of whatever you need!!!!
I changed a bunch of stuff but I don't know how to access them
For some reason I can't build any cpus. After I build my first architecture, I assign it to a factory but it doesn't make any cpus. Weird.
game has alot going for it, shame i cannot pass the 1 GHz while competition can, like i can litterly not go over 1 GHz with only 1 core and the rest of the thing filled with the 1 MHz pipelines... (most effective). will keep from donating or anything untill the game is further in development. i can see alot of ambition! would be an amezing tycoon + design gameonce fully realised!
Can I install this on my standard account? (ps I mean Windows 10 64 bit)
I don't know if it's me being dumb but I've done everything for research. Somehow the competitors are getting 4 cores and 1Ghz and It's literally impossible to do that.
Yes, there is alread a game named hardware tycoon
name this game Hardware Engineering Tycoon
I personally HET this idea...
Why is this named exactly as another (older) game (without 2019)? Please at least make an unique name. Good concept though (same as the another game).
Please take this as a critism not a hate, I like your work.
How do i even build cpu's ive been trying to play and cant figure it out am i just stupid? also i placed a factory and made an arcitecture how do i link them?
The architectures dont have a texture in that version. Just click on the blue box in the Architecture menu and you can make your CPUs.
I can’t save a game. Is this a bug or has that not been added yet?
Not added in this version. You can only do it through console by typing "save" or "load"
im playing the game in my browser on windows 10 and it says when i create a CPU THAT the name is to short but i try and edit the name but its not working i also might not be doing the right thing either so theirs that too
There is a text box that says "Processor name" above extra features, put 1 character into it. You managed to get in game so text boxes should work.
oh and will try the rar version soon will edit
hey, why is grass black and the game is performing weird
edit: game easy
It just doesn't not work...
The game does not work! I tried the browser version and the downloaded one for Windows...
Could you describe your issue and provide your PC specs, so I can look into why it happens? You can do that directly in the Discord.
this game is just a black screen?
Wont even work on mac
Buy a pc
Why do you have a mac ?
it won't load, I'm staring at a black screen
Try the Download version, its newer anyway. Although there will be another update tomorrow.
I tend to like simulation games and I am going to try this one out but I thought I might give you a heads up that there is another game on itchio called "Hardware Tycoon" it has been around for a bit longer you might want to rethink the name just a suggestion
I'm fully aware of that. That's why its called Hardware Tycoon 2018 :)
wtf that's old, I bet they have Hardware Tycoon 2021 in China already
what a savage
Its HT! 2019 now.
It's Cool Btw.. Two maker of hardware tycoon is here (lol i replied after 2 year XD)
Also China have HT 2030 Now
you should make it hardware tycoon 2019
How to start
When is the next update coming ?
how do i select traits
The game concept is great, but the game itself has bugs: Can't select traits, map, etc; You can't stop the production if you set it to 0; Sales can stop unexpected; Sometimes even if you set the price more than production cost, profit goes negative; competitors make CPUs with no wattage; etc
game needs, nothing loaded correctly. Kinda annoying cause your game looks awesome.
