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

My, what an interesting place this has become...
By Anastazja on October 18, 2017

Hi hello Jim! I love Happy Wheels the way it was now. I do not need another more update, I do not want re characters, I like the game as it is. Personal, I do not think this game needs any things to make it glitchy/glitchier and slow. So keep working on Happy Wheels 2! I can not wait. :) Love Anastazja. P.S. All the way from Poland! P.P.S. Sorry for bad english

No ads on mine just a button that says PLAY HAPPY WHEELS
By Pinnimajig on October 17, 2017

@Da Blood God Woah. You're putting down the guy who gave you a free game to play because you lost your plays on a virtual game that has no story line? Give up @Bert was right.

hi, somebody deleted my newest level that I just posteda few days ago (14 oct Malaysian Time) and the title for the level is 'Comic Part 1' can you please bring back my level? ; w ;

hey, plz add russian language in game
By Bert on October 15, 2017

@Da Blood God: I can just picture the heavy stream of sweat pouring off your face as you breathe intensely and furiously tap your keyboard on an online game website over a person you've never met. If you looked at level rules, they clearly state no realistic depictions of nudity, so your logic is flawed. Go outside and take a breather, I think you need it.

By Da Blood God on October 14, 2017

@Jim Bonacci Hmm. Then shouldn't the title have been "Problems Playing Emergency"? I never said you owe ME an apology, you owe the people who relied on you and haven't even seen any support from you since 2012-2013! Douche! Oh and I didn't make rule breaking levels. The rules are making no misleading levels such as "Naked Girl Glitch" and asking to rate five for nothing. I did not say it was a glitch, I said "naked girl" and it wasn't misleading—it was a naked woman drawn from the best of my abilities and I did not ask for ratings, thus being a true Naked Girl level. Get the facts straight.
By LWPeterson on October 14, 2017

Hey Jim, thanks very much for updating us. I'm able to play Happy Wheels just fine and the sequel sounds great from what I know so far. My question is, is there new content coming for the flash version, since it hasn't been updated in about two years? Is it possible we will see the return of lost features of the website such as messages and a forum? Thanks again Jim.
By Jim Bonacci on October 14, 2017

@Da Blood God.... the emergency was that people couldn't play the game, not that my ad wasn't showing. There was no video ad for several months. Clearly that would imply that it was not an emergency. I owe everything to my community and I've expressed that in just about every post. You don't have to believe I'm working on a sequel. Even if I was spending my days staring at a wall, I'm not obligated to make anything and I certainly owe you nothing. I made a free game and updated it for several years. I've now decided to work towards building a new platform. In response you've called me names and contributed offensive, rule breaking levels. I'm the douche?
By RobynJo on October 14, 2017

First of all: Screw you, Da Blood God. Second, thanks Jim for actually giving us an update. I can't wait. <3
By Da Blood God on October 13, 2017

I will be frank with you; right now you're seeming like a really big douche. If you think that the topic of you making ad revenue is an "emergency" (line two, word two), you clearly did not give a damn when this game was dying and Happy Wheels fans were desperately trying to revive it by making complex levels and videos to save the game so that YOU could get the ad revenue. Did you ever recognize that or make an update or even said, "THANKS" to the people who tried to save this game? No. You instead come complaining that "Wah! I need ad revenue and money for this game. Hey, I didn't give a damn and never posted in two years, but let me know when you can't see an ad because I want the money! Oh by the way I don't buy that bull that you're creating a whole other game, which you've been ironically working on for the past three years. Thanks for nothing, and you sir, are an oaf.
By ShupirYT on October 13, 2017

i cant laay game because video i cant play :'( how i can play this game?
By Bushdood on October 13, 2017

the video in the front page doesn't work so i cant play the game
By bbq_boysnuff on October 12, 2017

Oh, and speaking of the framerate, is the 30fps something out of your control? or is it just a game performance instability thing?
By bbq_boysnuff on October 12, 2017

Tutanota Straitjackit here. Thanks for the reply. I've sent a response, I hope to discuss this further, Steam would be the best place. Believe it or not, some people still play this game and put effort in, I don't put in effort anymore lol, but I still play, and I'm more or less passionate about the fate of the game. There are NO other games like Happy Wheels, it's truly a unique and brilliant game. Sure, it's a bit rough around the edges and can be buggy and unstable as hell, and the locked 30fps isn't that fun, but i'd take all of that over NO Happy Wheels :p WWE levels are the god damn best, played any Jim? Try out Rhaab's levels, he actually puts real effort in, they're fun as hell. PS: To all mods, thanks for deleting my newer account "straitjackit" I wasn't trying to get banned, but I did make clickbait racist levels, and to see that mods are actually watching over the game makes me happy, so I don't need to "test" anymore, lol. Thanks for reading.
By neros1234 on October 11, 2017

HOLY **** JIM IS BACK
By bbq_boysnuff on October 11, 2017

Issue is completely resolved. Thanks for making sure the game is still running well, considering how old it is and how toxic this community is, it's impressive you bothered, lol. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to discuss possible future content in Happy Wheels? Please send a reply to Straitjackit@tuta.io
By Bert on October 11, 2017

@LukeDuke1988: I just had to laugh. Not only do you constantly repost the exact same poorly made Matrix level over and over since 2015, but they all ask for a 5 star rating. I had to delete all but a few of your levels. Oh but I totally must be deleting these levels for no reason! Same for you thatkid12311154. Your levels totally didn't have a "rate 5" at the finish line. Please don't try to act all innocent when your levels clearly violate level rules.
By LukeDuke1988 on October 10, 2017

My Level Was ALso Deleted For An UnKnown Reason With Around 150,000 Plays
By thatkid12311154 on October 10, 2017

Somebody deleted my level it had over 200,000 plays. the level was called Don't Move Heart By Thatkid12311154. can you guys put my level back please.
By GamedSkull on October 09, 2017

If it would be possible for you to add the option to show every single post on a single linear page, that'd be very sweet.

I cant zoom in with my mouse in fullscreen ;-;
By PlugDraco21 on October 05, 2017

Will there be any new characters added to the game or since happy wheels 2 is coming there will be no more characters for the open slots and if so these are characters I suggest - Skateboard Dude - Unicorn Girl - FreeRunner - Sports Car Douche - Jim Bonacci Easter Egg Character - Motorcycle Man These character suggestions would be cool in HW 2 as well with updated models for HW characters Also level templates too. From A Fan,PlugDraco21

By ShrekyRecky on October 02, 2017

Wait... A second happy wheels, is it going to be like the first with better details, is it 3D, what's going to be different
By ItsSableye on October 01, 2017

Things load incredibly fast for me now. Until recently it would take 2+ minutes and nearly freeze my browser, and that was *with* my ad blocker. Without it and the game wouldnt load at all. Im glad you got the problem resolved, and glad I can finally disable the ad blocker.
By creepypastaBR on October 01, 2017

please add coments in levels ;-;
By angarkiki on October 01, 2017

i like update!Jim
By JJ0006 on September 30, 2017

Thank you!!!! I am totally happy with waiting because I trust your game will be amazing. As for the ads, I will gladly disable adblock for this website only, I'm glad to help in any way i can, even if it's as little as watching an ad. Thank you for the long awaited update blog!!!!
By GamingWolf_10 on September 30, 2017

Why not release an alpha version of Happy Wheels 2, then just release the updates as they come along?

I did get involvet in the game,but from Monday i get involvet.Do you make a new character?If you do write in a comment or news
By theshywillraindeath on September 30, 2017

As everyone probably already knows, Google is going full conservative for some reason on all their platforms so if you use Google ads or like to make Youtube videos it's time to abandon ship and find somewhere else to take your creative businesses. No one ever liked the way Google treated their customers but it seems like every year they do something else drastic that makes them look like a bunch of inconsiderate buffoons. You're doing God's work Jim, i'm sure the new Happy Wheels will come in due time, I just hope you will be able to be rewarded for your hard work!

By anphu04 on September 27, 2017

Jim you need to prove to people that you're actually developing the sequel by uploading images or videos of it.
