video ad problems?
By Jim on September 23, 2017

Hello everyone. I realize I have not made a news post in around 2 years. I think the topic here borders on a slight emergency, so I'm making this one.

Earlier this year google decided, after 7 years, that they no longer felt Happy Wheels was appropriate for their ads. It was fine all that time, but now, after zero changes to my content, it's offensive. In a very slow manner, I've made the effort to replace that revenue by using other ad networks. Flash ads no longer seem to be viable, so, as you may have noticed, I just recently added an html5 ad before Happy Wheels loads.

From my own testing I've not been able to find any bugs, however many of you have reached out to tell me they cannot play the game. If you're having issues loading Happy Wheels, please tell me what you're experiencing in the comments below. Tell me the browser you're using, the operating system, what you see, and any other pertinent information. When I first uploaded the changes, there was indeed a bug that affected 1 of my 2 front end servers which prevented the game from loading. However I fixed that on Friday morning (yesterday). I've still gotten a couple complaints though. If there's an issue, I can't fix it unless I know what it is.

Outside of that, I realize I owe everyone a very long blog post regarding the current state of what the hell I've been doing. The short version is that I'm still just working on the sequel to Happy Wheels, and I'm extremely poor at time estimates. I've been building my own game engine from scratch. Unlike the flash version of Happy Wheels, I've basically had to learn a new language and construct all of my own tools before I could even get to the creative side of things. Logically all the steps I've had to take make sense to me, but actually implementing them is absurdly time consuming. Though daunting, I do find solving each successive problem to be rewarding and educational... I just wish I could magically present everyone with what I'm working towards now rather than at some undetermined point in the future. So, I'm sorry to everyone that I can only now offer more waiting. If anyone cares, I'm doing well, I've made enough money to fund development for however long it takes, I will put in as much detail as I feel necessary, I'm currently working on the editor, I've made significant progress, and I think I will make an excellent game worthy of everyone's time. Hopefully it will become the fully featured platform I always wanted Happy Wheels to be. Blah blah blah.

*The issue should be fixed as far as I can tell. If it's not please complain in this Happy Wheels discord here: https://discord.gg/6UKrjNa

By yolothug on February 13, 2018

I really hope you try your best with working on the game man... I wondered why the game hasn't updated since but now I understand. I hope you're doing okay and take your precious time with making the game looking pretty good!

Hi Jim! Just wanted to let you know that when you come onto the site and click 'Get Adobe Flash Player', you have to wait for the site to load, THEN you can play. if you dont do that then the game doesnt load at all. Just FYI.
By Bert on February 11, 2018

@blaze4836: Well obviously. By default Flash is disabled on Tor due to how vulnerable it is.
By wolvesofjs on February 08, 2018

When will Happy Wheels 2 come out? There should be new characters :P and maybe walking capability
By Franco798798 on February 07, 2018

This will probably not help, but I can play amazingly in Google Chrome at Windows 10.

By Bar Code on February 04, 2018

Hey Jim, I have a problem loading the game. I have Windows 7 Professional and I use Google Chrome. When I open the site and I go to HW I see that the ad blocks are at the midlle of the screen, **** the game, and the game doesn't run, It's just black. It's weird 'cause sometimes happens and sometimes doesn't. Please fix it, we would all apreciate it! I hope you understanded me and my shitty explanation.

By LWPeterson on January 10, 2018

What? Bert made a comment that's suspiciously similar to mine? Interesting.
By JessieLee123 on January 09, 2018

Hey guys, if anybody wants a free account, mine is up for grabs. There is no catch, I just don't want my account anymore. I haven't deleted my levels but you can do that pretty easily. My e-mail is faber@zipcad.com and my p a s s w o r d is erina123.

By LWPeterson on December 21, 2017

I can imagine this game not being crap if like, it was updated at least once every other month.
By Frenchpat_1980 on December 20, 2017

Hey man! Whats up?! My name is Brandon and I am currently going to college for gaming and graphic design and development. Not that thats a big deal, but I love the game! I would love to maybe contribute in the future. My son is 14 and is the one who introduced me to it and since then been kind of addicted and cant wait for the sequel!! Its mostly the idea is one all its own and Ive be around gaming since gaming has been a thing (atari, intellevision, and collecovision) all the way up till even now. With all the different platforms that are available now a days one would think that new game ideas would be an easy task, however indeed not! But your game is legitimately genuine. I mean everything now made is a copy of something else just a bit different. Not original ideas.. too many 1st person shooters and RPG and blah blah blah. All Im sayin is I appreciate what you bring to the gaming community in a big way. and now that Im done kissin **** here LOL. anyway bro, BRAVO!!!

So how can we donate to you? A PayPal-button should do nicely, don't you think? Love you! <3

By NotTDM347 on December 06, 2017

There is a bug (in my personal experiences), that it says that you are getting 30 fps, but really you are getting about 10 or 15 or 5 even. Just throwin' it out there.
By AceEm2001 on December 06, 2017

Damn I hope I'm not too old by the time Happy Wheels 2 comes out . . . but it's definitely worth the wait ;) Thanks for everything Jim, your hard work will forever be stained on the internet :D

By DarkCreature893 on December 04, 2017

Hi, this is update to my last entry. I can enter the game now, Idk but I thing maybe there is a bug for the last I played this game. So, after playing this game within 3 days. I experienced this problem-= There is big black box (I assumed it to be the ads). It appeared constantly if you often clicking something like a button or entering level editor.So, this black box really annoy me especially when I creating a level. But when I clicked to the box. it disappears. Hmmm, a glitch? BTW, I use internet explorer. I love this game tho
By bumfacecomet on December 04, 2017

Keep on doing it bro! really looking forward and happy wheels 1 is already the best;
By YEAH_BOIIIIIIIIIIIII on December 02, 2017

hi there... I just made a level that I thought was pretty good. I tried to upload it.v it said 'test first' ... so I did. but when I did... the screen just went white and I had to refresh so I cant upload my level... :'(
By slicer x on December 01, 2017

holy hell, i remember when my buddies and i found out about this game online in middle school. i've graduated high school now and i came back and logged on after years of inactivity, and just seeing how the game is still functioning and the developer is still actively dedicated to this game warms my heart. You could assume i was 13 years old when i made this account with a username such as slicer x. way to stick with it man.
By DarkCreature893 on December 01, 2017

It's been a long time since I play this game on 2016, and now I come back to play this game. The first time I load this game, I didn't encounter any problem with it, the game loads perfectly, probably because my internet connection is good. The second I load the game, this is where the problem starts to haunt me, when I came back to play the game, I went to the game page where there is a blue screen, as always I waited a couple of minutes to see this ( game loading 1%). But then it does not happen. I waited about an hour but the loading indicator does not appear. So, what I did is to refresh the page. Then, the loading indicator appears, thank god. But, The next problem happens and this is about the loading indicator. The numbers, it stuck on the same number exp(game loading 1%) for a couple of minutes. And I was like what the heck is happening,I got the best internet speed ok.So, I am really mad about this cause I can't even reach the game after the first try.So I hope you can fix it
By MUSCAS786 on December 01, 2017

By RussiaIGOR52 on November 27, 2017

My operating system is Windows. My browser Opera. I have a opens is and closes the window with the game. The game doesn't run.
By TheMightyBurrito on November 26, 2017

You really should put the game on steam so that you can make a bit more profit on it. Nobody will mind, and I'm sure many would be willing to support it so that you could get more money to work on your game even further. Also, any news on the android app? Would appreciate it.
By DuckFaceTheSecond on November 25, 2017

On my pc, it works on google chrome but when I use frefox, it gives a grey screen that refuses to move. I don't know if its the firewall that blocks yhe plug-in or another thing that mozilla added to firefox. So if it doesn't work, first try another browser it might be usefull THANKS TO LISTEN EVERYONE I KNOW NOBODY CARES
By The Homie Pig on November 24, 2017

nice to see this game isnt dead also put it on steam
