FEATURE The full CasinoRPG experience is now fully compatible with mobile devices through the browser, so you can now play on the go!
  • Everything has been scaled to to fit the small screen, from casino games and missions to the floor and lot editors and everywhere in-between.

  • Updated the layouts of some features/games to work better on mobile devices (where just scaling wasn't ideal).

  • Added a quick play menu that makes it easier to get into games when on small screens.

  • Tested to work on recent models of iPhones, iPads and Android phones/tablets.

  • The e-bars menu button has been removed and the Crews/Condo buttons have been turned into apps on your phone.

  • This is the culmination of months of work and required updates to nearly everything in the game. Because of this, there will be bugs and things that can be improved. We greatly appreciate any reports of these issues/ideas (no matter how big or small).
FEATURE The GoldFire platform has been largely unchanged since its first release in 2012. GoldFire 2.0 is a complete re-imagining of what it could be and has been re-built from the ground up based on everything we've learned and all of the feedback received in those 5 years.
  • Mobile Support - Every feature has been designed around mobile in mind, meaning the full toolbar and site will work just as well on small screens as it does on large.

  • New Toolbar - The toolbar has been moved from the bottom of the screen to the right side, giving us significantly more room to work with. Every feature is now accessible and fully live updating without ever leaving your game.

  • Private Chat - Private chat with your friends has been overhauled to more closely resemble a messaging app on your phone. It is much easier to read with full screen height display, includes an emoji keyboard and image/video embedding. It also now enables group chat instead of strictly one-to-one.

  • Notifications - The full notification history can now be viewed right from the toolbar, and clicking on notifications will take you to the associated view (chat, forum, profile, game, etc). There's also a new popup notification in the bottom right of the screen (can be disabled in settings).

  • Forums - The forums are now streamlined to more closely resemble a public chat thread than traditional forums. You never have to leave the game to check the forums, and even clicking links to forum posts will open them from the toolbar rather than in a new window!

  • Social Feed - This is now accessed from the forums tab and includes image/video embedding, emojis, vastly improved commenting and the ability to like posts. In addition, there are some new automated posts such as when you open a casino or win a jackpot.

  • Leaderboards - You can now easily see your current rankings for every leaderboard by opening the new leaderboards tab. Clicking on a category will give you a scrollable list along with toggles to jump to yourself, show only friends and also show monthly ranking for every category (not just overall ranking like before).

  • Profiles - Profiles are now also viewed from the toolbar and show largely the same information as before (though in a better format and faster to load). In addition, you can view each player's rankings for each game by viewing their games.

  • Info - Each game has an info button in the bottom right of the screen that gives various information and actions. You can access feedback and support, see how many and which players are online, access the news or guide pages and much more.

  • Store - The store has one of the most significant changes in that we've decided to remove the concept of GoldFire Gold. Ultimately, the Gold concept caused more confusion than the intended benefits, so we decided it made sense to simplify the whole process. We've done a 1-to-1 conversion of everyone's Gold balances to the premium currency in their most active game; however, if you wanted some other action taken, please contact us and we'll get you taken care of. Additionally, you can now manage saved credit cards and view your full purchase history.

UPDATE Lowered the odds of getting wall items in Party Bombs.
UPDATE Username of Casino Point buyer is now included in notification.
UPDATE Various tweaks to mission animations.
FIX Improved loading of image assets on slow or unreliable connections.

August 22, 2016 @ 10:55 AM
FEATURE One of our goals at GoldFire Studios is to enable amazing communities to grow around amazing games. Internally, we've been trying out a myriad of different ways to push further towards this goal, and what stuck is a system that enables the community to partially police itself. You can read more of the details about how the system works from the rules page, but here are the highlights:
  • The biggest changes have to do with providing non-CA's with chat moderation tools. The new system automatically determines who should have those tools based on various factors (you will receive a popup with more details if/when each of these tools becomes enabled).

  • The first is vote to delete. If you are granted this feature, you'll get a "DEL" button next to chat messages in global chat. If 3 people vote to delete a message, it gets deleted even if there's no CA present (there are safeguards in place to prevent abuse of this feature).

  • The second is something we are calling a blackchip. These are meant to be used when someone is being disruptive in chat or elsewhere and ignores multiple requests to stop. When you give a blackchip, that player is instantly muted from chat for a few minutes (the time increases if multiple people give them one). There are again safeguards in place to prevent abuse of this feature as well.

  • We've made the chat ignore feature easier to use and more functional. Click on a player's avatar in global chat or on tables to get a new "ignore" button. Or, use the new slashcodes /ignore USER and /unignore USER from within any game chat.

  • Added a new ignore list window to the game settings app inside your phone.

  • Added a shortcut key 't' to open the emotes window.

  • Added common phrases to the emotes window to easily say things like "good game" or "thanks" with one click.

  • Added labels in global chat to make it clear what the colored usernames mean.

FEATURE Missions are another aspect of the game that haven't gotten much love since early beta testing. This all changes with this update:
  • Redesigned the display of your missions list in the top right of the screen. It now shows the mission giver, the associated color, a more obvious progress bar with numerical percent and a live countdown.

  • Redesigned team missions display (including sprints) to now show the player avatars and to order the list by ranking.

  • Got rid of modal windows for mission reviews and created a new full-screen display that makes reading mission information, objectives and other information much easier on any screen size.

  • Created all-new stunning animations for new mission, mission step complete, mission complete and mission failed.

  • Created new sound effects to go along with these new animations.

  • Created a new global queuing system to prevent mission and level up messages from overlapping.

  • The "mission step complete" animation also displays the next step without needing to open the mission review again.

FEATURE Solitaire has received a laundry list of improvements to culminate in what we think is the best online solitaire game you'll find anywhere:
  • Various graphics improvements including dynamic shadows/lighting, streamlined animations and a new win animation.

  • The stacks of cards now pile up visually rather than just having an extended shadow (for example, you can now accurately see how many cards are left in the deck).

  • Improved performance in various areas, especially when moving cards to new locations.

  • You no longer need to get a card halfway over the destination for it to register. Simply touching it at all will now register the move, greatly improving the "feel" of the gameplay.

  • Various other improvements to the "feel" of gameplay.

  • New sound effects in several areas of the gameplay.

  • Added 5 new solitaire medals.

  • Updated the game stats display along the bottom to be more clear and include the number of moves.

  • Added a new "hint" button if you ever get stuck.

  • Various bug fixes.

UPDATE When on the floor tab in the editor, the casino will appear as it would outside of the editor so that you can easily preview the changes. When a tile is selected you get the alternate view to make editing easier.
UPDATE Clicking the currently opened tab on the editor will now close the editor (or open the review display if you have made changes).
UPDATE Tweaked the style of the vault chips display to better match the metrics displays and to be easier to read.
UPDATE Increased the opacity of disabled buttons to make the text easier to read.
UPDATE Added global shortcut key 'e' to open/close editor.
UPDATE Display of mission givers on mini-map now matches that of the mission review display.
FIX Ignoring now works correctly in all local/table chats.
FIX Issue where wall items would sometimes partially show in front of some floor items.
FIX Various issues caused by certain locations of jumping water fountain items on lot (overlaps, items stuck in vault, etc).
FIX Two wallpaper options from the old editor are now correctly showing again.
FIX Made some tweaks and fixes to twirling chip animations.
FIX Overlapping sounds when spinning daily slots quickly.
