“Off-Facebook” Privacy Settings

📢 Attention Thunder Run, Days of Valor, Mars Frontier, War Star Empire, and Battlefront Mars Commanders on Facebook:

Facebook has recently introduced a new setting toggle that allows users to turn off a feature that they call “Off-Facebook Activity”, and since then several Facebook Sharing campaigns have gone viral encouraging Facebook users to do so. We strongly recommend that you ignore any such advice it as it it’s been brought to our attention that turning off “Off-Facebook Activity” can remove access to our Facebook Game Apps on your account and subsequently cause various issues logging into the game.

What is “Off-Facebook Activity”, anyway? It’s a tool that gives Facebook App Developers the ability to share with Facebook when people are using their app. In the case of Thunder Run, we use it to tell Facebook when a player logs in, and when our system’s ability to do this becomes blocked the user, various errors can occur. You can read more about the specifics of “Off-Facebook Activity” here.

Rest assured, if you have already turned off Off-Facebook Activity and are having trouble logging in, your base and all of your progress remain safe on our servers, and you should be able to fix the issue by simply turning the setting back on. To do this, go to your Facebook Profile “Settings” Menu -> “Your Facebook Information” -> “View Off-Facebook Activity” -> “More Options” -> “Manage Future Activity” -> and then flip the toggle to it’s “On” position like shown below.

Make sure “Future Off-Facebook Activity” is toggled to “On”

As you might have already read the most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog, we’re also in the process of working on getting Thunder Run published on more platforms outside of Facebook, and offering new account login alternatives as part of our “Project New Horizons”. Stay tuned for more information on the next step!

TR: Kongregate Needs Our Help! – April 24th, 2020

This week in Thunder Run:

Kongregate Needs Our Help!

📣 Attention Facebook Thunder Run Commanders!

As most of you probably already know, we relaunched “Thunder Run: War of Clans” as “Thunder Run: Global Warfare” on Kongregate earlier this week, and merged all of the Kongregate players into the Facebook maps. Kongregate plans to send us a bunch of new players soon for all of you to be able to recruit and do battle with, but we have to keep our game rating above 3.5 out of 5 stars on their website in order to help make that happen.

If you want lots of new people to play with in Thunder Run, and have a minute to spare: Would you be so kind as to login to “Thunder Run: Global Warfare” on Kongregate, and give the game a 5 Star rating to help us out? 😀

Instructions:

  1. Login here with your Kongregate account (or create one if you don’t have one already): https://www.kongregate.com/games/Battlehouse/thunder-run-global-warfare
  2. Refer to the screenshot below for where to find the ratings widget once in-game.

Thanks in advance, Comanders! Good hunting out there!

Limits on promotion orders have been removed

Players can now purchase up to 62 Promotion L4 to L5 tokens as long as they have the ONP. This is enough ONP to upgrade every leader to L5.

Elite NIMR’s moonwalking days are over

We’ve received reports of the Elite NIMR occasionally appearing to be firing or driving backwards in certain battle replays. For those who haven’t heard yet, this isn’t a lag/server issue, nor is this a result of players cheating. It was an animation issue, which should now be resolved via some minor tweaks that we made to the unit’s turning behavior. Going forward, it must turn so that it’s within 120 degrees of its target direction before starting to move. Beware that this will reduce it’s maneuverability a bit, but not by a lot since its turn speed is so high.

More Game Improvements

  • The TOC12 LRAD now has a visible projectile
  • The Upgrade Information bar that lists the benefits of an upgrade has had its scroll buttons fixed.
  • The Player Information Statistics tab now supports mouse-wheel scrolling
  • For games with more than three rows worth of PvP seasons, the text overlap problem has been fixed and scroll buttons have been added.
