    If you mean the Prime on PC thing, isn't it like 250?

    Proof that ten times better still might not be stupendous.

    25 is what he said - incredulously. Maybe someone else can confirm...?

    About the Prime on PC thing, does anyone know how to install this game? It's not listed.

    I think it's a code you can get from Amazon Prime Gaming - afaik you put that code in the webstore i.e. there's not a Prime client. Something like that...

    So, open the webstore on the PC.

    Thanx.

    Done that a dozend time. From webstore, go to Amazon Gaming, there they usually offer a code which you can redeem at the webstore.
    On Amazon Gaming there is STT, but no code to redeem, only for other games.

    Sorry. We slightly highjacked your thread. We got to discussing the new PC version of the game, from Prime.

    Google Play Beta for Windows - the pack is 250 chrons. I gave it a quick spin, and I find the Windows Store version of Timelines to be better, especially since you can launch the game directly. I couldn't see a way to do that with the new GP option.

    Amazon Prime giveaways - Looking at Amazon's page, the format and game list has changed substantially in the last month. It wouldn't surprise me if this isn't an option going forward, but communication from @STT Community either way would really be useful.

    Thanks for clearing that up - fleetmate was obviously mistaken. :)

    I had this problem. The requirements to run GP itself seem very high, much higher than would be necessary to run Timelines or a lot of other games. Google have messed up there I think.

    But at least people have reassured me that I'm not missing out on anything worthwhile in the welcome.pack. I did wonder why they didn't mention the contents in the original message. 250 chrons?!

    It blows my mind that Google Play can run on my Onn tablet, but not the kneetop. I know Wal*Mart ripped me off, but that is very pitiful.

    Phones and PCs use different hardware. Google Play Games is probably emulating phone hardware on your PC. So you need more powerful hardware to be able to emulate the other hardware.

    TL:DR, It's voodoo!

    That is probably what it is. This little thing Wal*Mart sold me is junky slow anyway. Stacking programs to run programs to run an app probably chokes it up.

    Intel processors should be able to take advantage. My Nvidia processor bests minimum requirements by a factor of 3 but isn't supported.

    Greetings Captains, posting some updates regarding this matter for visibility. Amazon dropped support for Amazon drops. We know how much you enjoyed the free contents, so we are planning a monthly drop through our webshop. More details to come soon. LLAP & Happy Holidays

    Well, that makes Amazon look a little shady, don't it?

    Lured people to their platform with in-game bonus items, then stopped when they felt they had enough suckers.....


    🍭🍭🍭🍭🍭🍭🍭

    Or at least it looks that way.


    Kudos to WRG for doing something positive for the players in response!!!!!

    Amazon IS shady, and not only looks like it.

    1. Dictating ebook prices to the pubishers.
    2. Driving competitors out of business by extremely low prices, running at a loss for some time, just to increase prices again once the competition is gone.
    3. Ridiculously small payouts through Amazon Smile compared to local businesses, who are generally a lot more generous with donations to charity.
    4. Treating the workforce like garbage, while Bezos has so much money he doesn't even know what to do with it.
    5. They ruined Tolkien's legacy.
    6. And to add my own story, once my payout on the affiliate program exceeded $10,000, they accused me of conspiracy and fraud, and refused to pay out (so I had to drag them to arbritation court - and won.)

    It's called a loss leader. All retail stores do it. Give something away or sell it at a cheap price to get you in the door. Then once you're used to coming, reduce the freebie so you spend more money.

    Do you think stores have those crazy good black Friday doorbusters out of the goodness of their hearts? The deals(which are probably all sold out by the time you get there) are to get you inside the store so you then buy everything else.

    3b, canceling the pathetically small percentage Smile program because it didn't generate the results they were after.

    Actually, there is a more common name for your example, that people use.

    When they were pushing "sign up for Amazon Gaming and get free in-game content EVERY MONTH", I missed the asterisk after "every month" that referred to fine print explaining that "every" meant "a few".

    But, it is what it is. I don't really care. I have no skin in anyone else's integrity.

    Hopefully, it is like the other space-theme game that starts with "Star". And do monthly (every month) and daily (sometimes) giveaways from their webstore too.

    We have big plans for the Community starting on January. We will share more details on the first weeks of the year. LLAP
