General Gameplay Questions

Please note that there is also a help button on Warfare Incorporated’s main menu. That text holds some very helpful information.

Question:
How do I access the game menu while playing?
Answer:
The menu button is in the lower left. From this menu in single player, you can have the game show the mission objectives, change the game options, save your game, load a saved game, restart the current mission, and abort the current mission. From this menu in multiplayer, you can have the game show the mission objectives, resign, and chat. Note that in single player, the game is paused while you are in the game menu or viewing the mission objectives, but in multiplayer, the game continues while you are in the game menu or viewing mission objectives.

Question:
How do I move the screen or change my view?
Answer:
Tap and drag your finger across the screen. The screen will move as you drag. You can also change your view by dragging the white rectangle in the mini-map.

Question:
What is the mini-map?
Answer:
The mini-map is basically a very small form of the map. Small colored dots represent mobile units and larger dots represent buildings. The white rectangle in the mini-map is what your main view is currently viewing.

Question:
What is the credits indicator?
Answer:
The credits indicator shows you how many galaxite credits you currently have. Most people refer to it as money rather than galaxite credits. If you run out of credits you must have a G-4 Bullpup mine some and return to the Mining Station. If you run out of credits buildings being built and units being ordered will stop in mid process and will not continue until you have more credits. Tapping on the credits indicator will show the mission objectives.

Question:
What is the power indicator?
Answer:
When it is green your base has enough power. When it is yellow your base has enough power to continue running. When it is red your base does not have enough power and many processes will take longer (such as ordering units in your VTS/HRC) while other things will stop working altogether (such as Rocket Towers and Gatling Towers). These processes will return to normal when the base has sufficient power again which can be done by building another Power Generator. Power is rated in numbers; one Power Generator gives a power supply of 40.

Question:
Why can’t I build buildings very far apart?
Answer:
The power flow from the Power Generator(s) in your base can only flow so far underground from one building to another. Because most of the buildings require sufficient power to run properly, you cannot build buildings further than power can flow.

Multiplayer Gameplay Questions

Question:

Remember, while you are chatting the game continues.

Question:
What are the Mission Objectives?
Answer:
The mission objectives are text that the mission author has put in the map explaining to you what you must do to complete the mission. It is always a wise idea to read the mission objectives.

Question:
How do I resign?
Answer:
Tap the ‘Menu’ button and then tap the ‘Resign’ button which is in the menu. When asked if you want to resign, press ‘Yes’.

Question:
What is observer mode?
Answer:
When you resign from a game or you are defeated, the game will ask you if you wan to continue as an observer. That is called observer mode. When you are in observer mode, you can see the whole map but you cannot tap units to see their health or control units etc. The only thing you can do in observer mode is watch what is happening and chat.

Answer:
/mute, /unmute, /kick, /flag, /help, /anon, /swap

Question:
What does the /mute and /unmute command do?
Answer:

Question:
What does the /kick command do?
Answer:
When typing /kick the server will reply with ‘Ouch that hurts’ which is only visible the issuer of the command. This command really has no purpose. It’s just something the creators of the game added as a joke.

Question:
What does the /help command do?
Answer:
It displays all the commands you can currently issue.

Question:
What does the /anon command do?
Answer:
If you host a game as a registered player, you can issue this command. Using this command prevents all anonymous players from joining your game and kicks any anonymous players out of the game that are currently in it. This command can only be issued while ‘Waiting For Players’ but cannot be issued in a game that is in progress.

Question:
What does the /swap command do?
Answer:
This command allows the player hosting a game, registered or anonymous, to swap the colors of two players. B = blue, R = red, Y = yellow, and C = cyan. Type the first letter of the two colors you want to swap. For example, to swap blue and red, type ‘/swap b r’ without quotes. This command can only be issued while ‘Waiting For Players’ but cannot be issued in a game that is in progress.

Question:
How do I join a game?
Answer:
Tap on the game you wish to join and tap the ‘Join Game’ button that will appear in the lower left. You cannot join a game in progress.

Question:
What does ‘(play)’ at the beginning of a game title mean?
Answer:
Games in progress will have ‘(play)’ at the beginning of their title.

Question:
How do I host a game?
Answer:
Tap the ‘Create Game’ button. Select the map you would like to host. There are 21 challenge missions made by Spiffcode Incorporated that come preinstalled. You can also host downloaded maps created by various Warfare Incorporated called Add-On. You can switch between your add on maps and the challenge maps by taping ‘Challenge’ and ‘Add-On’. After you have selected the map you want to play tap ‘Create Game’. After all the players required to join have joined and have ‘Readied Up’, you may press the ‘Begin Game’ button.

Question:
What is the ready button and why does everyone tell me to press it?
Answer:
The player hosting a game cannot start the game until all players are ready. The other players and the player hosting want you to ‘ready up’ so the game can begin. Press ‘Ready’ as soon as you’re ready to play. After you have pressed ‘Ready’, you cannot ‘Unready’.

Question:
Can I chat with people in the room when I am on the ‘Create Multiplayer Game’ screen?
Answer:
Yes. You chat with them the same way as when you are on the ‘Game Room’ screen.

Question:
Can I chat with people in the room while I am in a game?
Answer:
No. You can only chat with the people in your game (whether or not it is in progress).

Gameplay Settings Questions

Question:
What is Game Speed?
Answer:
The default game speed is 1.0x. The faster you make the speed the quicker the game goes. Changing the speed the modifies the game’s simulation time. On single player the max game speed is 8.0x and on multiplayer the max game speed is 2.0x. Most maps are made for 2.0x speed so changing the speed can affect the maps. On multiplayer most players do not want to play a game that is less than 2.0x speed so when hosting a game on multiplayer you will get more players if you host it on 2.0x speed.

Question:
How do I change my Game Speed for single player?
Answer:
Go to the Warfare Incorporated main menu. Tap ‘Options’. Slide the slider under the words ‘Game Speed’ to modify the Game Speed. Tap ‘OK’ to save your changes.

Question:
How do I change my game speed for multiplayer?
Answer:
The speed a multiplayer game is played is chosen by the player hosting the game. If you are hosting a game you can chose your desired game speed on the ‘Create Multiplayer Game’ screen. You can do this by sliding the slider under the words ‘Game Speed’ to your desired speed.

Question:
What is Scroll Speed?
Answer:
Scroll Speed is the speed your view changes as you swipe your finger. 1.0x Scroll Speed is the normal setting. If you use 1.0x Scroll Speed, the view changes with your finger; for every inch you move your finger the view moves an inch. The higher the Scroll Speed the further your current view moves for swiping your finger one inch in one direction.

Question:
How do I change my Scroll Speed?
Answer:
Since your Scroll Speed only affects you, you can choose the same Scroll Speed for single player and multiplayer. To change your Scroll Speed, go to the Warfare Incorporated main menu. Tap ‘Options’. Slide the slider under the words ‘Scroll Speed’ to modify the Scroll Speed. Tap ‘OK’ to save your changes. The change will take effect for both singleplayer and multiplayer.

Question:
What are the difficulty settings?
Answer:
For the story missions, there’s an easy mode, medium mode, and hard mode. To set it to the mode you want, go into settings and tap the box next to the word that is the level of difficulty you want.

Game Login Error Questions

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the game that says, ‘The player authentication server is not responding. Please try to log in as an anonymous player.’?
Answer:
The server is not authorizing you to log in because your device does not have the correct date and time. Go to your device’s settings and set the correct date and time (use your own time zone, you do not need to ser it to the server’s time zone) and try logging in again. If the problem persists, please contact an administrator.

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the game that says, ‘The Internet connection appears to be offline.’?
Answer:
This is caused because your device does not have an internet connection. Your WiFi or cellular signal is probably turned off. Connect to an internet connection and try logging in again. If the problem persists, please contact an administrator.

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the game that says, ‘An unknown error has occurred while logging in. Please try again.’?
Answer:
This can be caused by different things. Please contact an administrator for assistance.

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the game that says, ‘Invalid Response From Service’?
Answer:
This is caused when your device is connected to a WiFi signal that is not giving an internet connection or is a guest signal which although it is unlocked, requires you to go into Safari (or another internet browser) and enter the guest password. Try switching WiFi networks or if your on a guest signal enter the password. If doing that does not fix the issue or your problem is something different, please contact an administrator.

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the game that says, ‘Your login attempt failed. Please check your username and password, or log in anonymously’?
Answer:
The main cause of this is error is probably because your username or password is incorrect. Try retyping them. Please remember that although, when logging in, your username is not case sensitive, your password is case sensitive. You may also be receiving this error if you just created your account and you have not activated it. Email activation is required before a user can use their account so if you have not activated your account, please check the email which you registered you account with for instructions on activating your account. If the problem persists, please contact an administrator.

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the game that says, ‘The request timed out.’?
Answer:
When your device tries to connect to the server it only has so many seconds to do it. If it cannot connect to the server within the allotted amount of time you will receive this error. First, press the okay button and then press the ‘Refresh’ button to try again. If you get a list of server(s) after refreshing, then just tap the one you want to join and tap ‘Connect’. If you get the error again it is probably because your connection to the internet is not fast enough to log into the Warfare Incorporated multiplayer server. If your WiFi is slow you could try a different WiFi network. If your internet connection is fine, contact an administrator.

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the game that says, ‘Server returned error 500’?
Answer:
This can be caused by the same reason as the 'Invalid Response From Service' error. The most common cause of the ‘Server returned error 500’ message is server issues in which case you will have to wait until an administrator can fix the issue.

Question:

Forum Login Error Questions

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the forum that says, ‘You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password.’?
Answer:
The main cause of this is error is probably because your username or password is incorrect. Try retyping them. Please remember that although, when logging in, your username is not case sensitive, your password is case sensitive. You may also be receiving this error if you just created your account and you have not activated it. Email activation is required before a user can use their account so if you have not activated your account, please check the email which you registered you account with for instructions on activating your account. If the problem persists, please contact an administrator.

Question:
What do I do when I get an error while logging into the forum that says, ‘The maximum number of [number] login attempts has been exceeded. You are not allowed to login for the next [number] minutes.’?
Answer:
This is because you have tried to login too many times and have gotten your password increment. The server thinks you are trying to hack something thus it disables you from logging in even if you type your correct username and password. Wait for the given amount of time and try logging in again. If you didn’t enter your username and password incorrectly several times and you are getting this error or you waited the time you must wait and you still cannot log in after entering your login information correctly, please contact an administrator.
