AdVenture Capitalist FAQs
Welcome to AdVenture Capitalist! Here are a few FAQs to help as you begin your capitalist adventure.


TECHNICAL ISSUES, QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS:

Q: What email address can I use to reach the developers of Adventure Capitalist?

A: The best way to get a response is to email the developers at “Adventurecapitalist@Hyperhippo.ca”.

Q: My purchase didn’t go through successfully - what do I do?

A: If you experience any sort of purchase issues, please write “Adventurecapitalist@Hyperhippo.ca”.

Please make sure that you have Steam Overlay enabled on your account or your purchase will not go through!

Q: Oh no - I’ve lost all of my progress! What can I do?

A: If you lose your saved game information, please write us at “Adventurecapitalist@Hyperhippo.ca”.

ANGEL INVESTORS:

Q: What do angel investors do?

A: Angel investors (AI) provide a bonus to your profit, starting out at 2% per AI.

Q: How do you get angel investors?

A: Your Angel Investor total directly correlates to your all time cash earned. To receive the bonus from your angel investors, you must redeem them by performing a reset to gain angel investors.

Q: Is there a formula for earning angel investors?

A: [150 * the square root of (your all time cash earned in quadrillions)] – AI spent. This means that when you earn an angel investor, it takes more money for you to earn your next one.

Q: At how many angel investors should I perform my next soft reset?

A: We usually recommend you should perform your first reset at 50-300 angels. After that, you can reset every time you double your angel investors (or more if you left the game alone for a while)
Towards the end of the game, it is often a good idea to reset earlier if you are reaching your maximum profit capacity quickly (ex: you get to 1800 newspapers in no time, but it will take you a long time to get to 1900).

Q: Should I buy this upgrade using angel investors?

A: The decision is up to you. If it costs less than 1% of your angels, then it will always be advantageous . You will be given a warning when trying to buy the upgrade if it costs more. Otherwise, just make sure that the upgrade will give you a worthwhile boost in profit, and make sure that you will be able to earn back all the angel investors that you spent. Keep in mind that angel investors will take more and more money to earn as you progress.
Make sure that you have enough Angel Investors to compensate the loss of profit gain, otherwise this could affect your game overall; Angel Investors are gone forever when they have been sacrificed.


Q: Should I buy this manager/accountant using angel investors?

A: If it costs less than 1% of your angels, sure. You should be given a warning when trying to buy the manager if it costs more. Otherwise, make sure that a 10% decrease in price and a cash per second meter is worth what you are paying. If it costs 20% of your angels, it will cause a 20% decrease in profit.
Make sure that you have enough Angel Investors to compensate the loss of profit gain, otherwise this could affect your game overall!

GOLD PURCHASES:

Q: What does Gold do and where can I buy it?

A: If you click on the “Store” button on the Menu, you can purchase Gold by clicking “Buy Gold”. After that, you can use Gold to purchase various permanent and temporary bonuses.

Q: How does the 3x multiplier purchase work?

A: This bonus multiplies your profits by 3 per multiplier. The bonus is additive, so 3 multipliers will grant you a 9x bonus, not a 27x bonus. The bonus will last through both soft and hard resets, as it is saved locally within your computer

Q: How does the time warp purchase work?

A: It will calculate how much cash you are due to gain from 24 hours of idling, and then give you that amount (which is also added to your cash earned totals). Remember, if you are planning to buy this AND buy Gold multipliers, make sure to buy the multipliers first, because they affect the amount the time warp will give you. ONE TIME USE.

Q: How does the angel claim purchase work?

A: It will allow you to collect all the angel investors that you would normally have to reset your game to redeem. Best used when you have a ton of cash/progress, and a ton of angels upon reset, so you don’t have to settle for one or the other. ONE TIME USE.

Q: How does the Gold Suit purchase work?

A: It will give your capitalist a Gold Suit in his portrait. Its effects are purely aesthetic.


GENERAL GAMEPLAY:

Q: What do the 1x/10x/100x/BuyMax in the top corner do?

A: These will toggle how many of each investment you purchase. This is especially useful in the later game.

Q: How/why do I purchase a Manager?

A: Managers can be purchased from the “Managers” tab on the menu. If you purchase a manager for a specific investment, you will no longer have to click the investment to earn profits. The investment will continue to accumulate money while you are offline.
The second tier of managers will improve efficiency, and lower the cost of their respective investment substantially.

Q: Can I play my progress on different computers?

A: AdVenture Capitalist saves locally within your device or computer and your Steam account, so you should be able to play on different computers with no issues. Any problems? Send us an email.

u should add the import/export question because you will see that alot.

This might be the wrong place to post but any chance of getting a Steam achievement for EVERY ACHIEVEMENT IN THE GAME? THAT'S RIGHT. ALL 498 OF THEM.

Seriously...you only have about 10 icons you need to re-use anyway and it would attract every single achievement hunter in existence.

Please, Hippo.
PLEASE

I second this, achievement hunting mode activated

Edit: After reading through the achievements, this could already exist in the form of the "Unlock all" achievement, it is kind of unclear about what it actually is

Things this game needs

1) A fix for the memory leak (the game eats ram until it crashes)
2) Add scrollbars / borders to ingame menus
3) A way to skip the config window (no need to see it every time the game opens)

Other than that, it's a great incremental / idle game.

YES PLEASE.

I like to feel like I'm making a dent in progression.

O Great and Almighty Hippo God please answer my feeble question......
If I were to purchase the "Angel Sacrifice" upgrade and then reset would I then have to buy the upgrade again or do the angel upgrades work different?

Oh, you meant an achievement for each and every one separately?
Thats probably going to clutter down the achievement section alot, and would be a hell to go through if something messes up

@ Dev will you attend the memory leak this game has under windows OS?
