Akarat Favors Me! 01/13/2017

by Joe

Diablo 3 has been on to-play list for a while. Finally picked it up last week and went with a Crusader (I have this thing to always pick the Paladin-ish class first in games since I assume it’s the easiest way to learn a game haha). Didn’t think it’d be so addicting! I love the pace and it’s relatively challenge-free (playing Hard, for now) – it’s just a fun and flashy experience. Reminds me of the stuff I loved in WoW – Blizzard gear designs and getting new loot :D

It has pulled me away from Civ VI, Witcher 3, and RimWorld. At least it hasn’t pulled me away from the comic!

Enjoy Scene 28 – “Powerless”!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook and Twitter for updates!

You can also support The Pocalypse by being a Patreon Patron! Thank you! :D

You play the Crusader. Take the Templar as a follower. Replay the quest where you get the Templar in story mode.

You can thank me later. You’ll know what I’m /talking/ about when you hear him say it.

Confirmation! Joe, HTML5 works! Checked on Android phone and Blackberry tablet! Yay!

Actually, Joe, it’s not quite an all-clear. On PC the font looks different than the regular font. On mobile it looks like the normal font. All previous videos still have the right font on PC, and of course on mobile they don’t load in the first place. You’ve still got a little fixing to do…

@Znayx – Thanks for the report! :D Do you mind sending or posting a screenshot of what the font on PC looks like?

I know a 4-image proof is overkill, but hey, better to too much than not enough. (No that rule does not apply to everything in the world please don’t learn from me as an example)

@Znayx – Thank you very much! I think I know what’s wrong and I have your extensive QA to thank for that :D

:) Cheers!

Are you switching to HTML5 Joe? I guess it makes sense since Flash is being pushed out.

BTW, “Akarat” means “Will” or “Volition” in my language :)

Cubix on January 18, 2017 at 10:10 am

@Cubix – Yup! I’ll have a more detailed post about the switch for the next scene. And, awesome! It fits the Crusader/Paladin vibe :D

Joe, I was just wondering why the flash plugin loaded itself working through my daily comics list.
I really don’t like flash running like that, so I’m just assuming this is not flash but actually dynamic html5 content.
Seems I have found how the scammers, crackers and the other scum smear their crap on my phone.

@Robert – Thanks for the catch! The site used to load Flash on load but, thanks to you, I’ve switched it to only load Flash when there is a Flash scene on the page. You’re right, these new scenes are dynamic HTML5 and won’t need the Flash plugin anymore :D Can you confirm that the plugin doesn’t load itself anymore? If it does, I’ll look into it further!

I have enabled the click to play notification and it doesn’t appear here.
