Well, not every item in the game has to be useful or sensible. This is Homestuck, after all. :P

Ask: Why is it that the ball of infinity or whatever seems to do so much damage to you but next to nothing to the enemy?
The numerical damage value is static for both you and the enemy, but the stronger enemies tend to have a lot more health than you, relatively speaking. It has a much less noticeable effect on them because, percentage-wise, the item doesn’t do a whole lot.

Ask: i am TacticalAntebellum from the comiconauts. while i was strife-ing, i realized my attacks were doing no damage. however, my aspect powers still worked, even though all the enemies i battled always had 1% life, even after my strongest attack. this doesnt occur all the time though, sometimes they die. is this a bug? or is it that my passive and active attacks arent synchronized
Aspect powers and consumable effects always leave your enemies with 1% HP if it would have killed them, mostly for balance reasons (so that you absolutely can’t take down an enemy unless you’re capable of doing SOME damage on your own). There are lots of factors that can contribute to a lack of physical damage, the most notable of which are your strife commands. Try using Assault and Abuse against a foe with around the same power level as you, and if you’re still doing no damage, then there is definitely something wrong.

Ask: Hello. My name is grimalkinConjurer from the session Magical Swaggin Dragons and whenever i go to the aspect powers i get "You have not accepted your title yet!" Even though i have accepted my title. can you tell me what is going on
When accepting a title, the change won’t be reflected until you log out and back in again. It is a minor inconvenience and will be fixed with the 2.0 update.

whenever i go to play overeer. ill get into the main screen with all the buttons but i will try and change screens and all i get is a infinite loading time, do you know what causes this?also last time i checked when i went to select a world to use for grist grinding i got a repeated list of my world. have ii messed up my servers loop with too many dummy acounts(its a two player game, we need those accounts to progress)(my ingame name is observantSilence if it helps)
I’ve looked up your session in the database, and I think I see the problem. Somehow, protonicRocker is their own server and client, yet the “hello” account also has PR listed as its client. This is probably confusing the heck out of the chain-building code. To fix it, you’ll want to sever some connections via administration and rebuild the chain.

Ask: Hi, my username is Sevvey6 from the session Doomish and I was wondering if theres a reason why I can't purchase anything in my consort shop. It seems that clicking an item i want to puchase doesnt do anything so my purchases never go through.
The shops have been inexplicably wonky as of late. You can select items by clicking the white space directly to the side of them; for some reason, this works perfectly fine. We’ll try to pinpoint the problem and have it fixed by the 2.0 release.

Ask: I hope this is where to post this... Every time I try to sessions (even the ones I make) I'm greeted with this error message: Player entry failed: Client player not found or already has a server player. How do I fix this?
Try leaving the client field blank. It’s optional, and you can always register a client after you enter the game.

Ask: I had an question for the encounters timer. Is really necessary that it resets to 20 minutes? It drags out the game a lot more than it should be.
If you think that’s bad, you should’ve seen it when the project first started. Originally, you only got one encounter every hour!

Ask: My name in the game is writtenShipper (session TheThing), and I've noticed that my Aspect Vial has decided to NOT increase while sleeping when I strife. Instead, it's steadily decreasing. And the same happens when I'm strifing while awake. My Health Vial increases, but my Aspect Vial continues to decrease. What's going on with that?
Because the aspect vial is shared between your real self and your dream self, sleeping in either state restores it by a little bit for every encounter spent in said state since the last time you slept. However, the actual restoration of the vial doesn’t occur until you go to sleep. A full restore should occur after around 8 encounters, regardless of aspect spent during those encounters, so try strifing 8 times in either state before going to sleep. Hope this helps!

Text Post: My last exam is today
For various reasons I’ve been pretty nervous about this one, but it’ll be sorted in a few hours. Once that happens I can FINALLY get back to working on Overseer in earnest. (Even if I fail it, I won’t have to worry again until next semester)
