BW2: Endangered Species Mini Event! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Endangered Species

Habitats are changing, and it's endangering many different animal species. Carson Tiva has found that three different endangered species can currently be found in Bushwhackia, as they search for new places to live.

Apply your bush whacking skills to help them collect Conservation Data on these unique animals for the limited time they're here. To gather data, you just have to give them a whack with your sword or other whacking implement. With said data, Carson Tiva can use it to try and help what's left of these unique animals.

Which species you encounter will be random, so if you fall behind in finding one of the three animals, you can start one of Carson Tiva's pursuit quests. You can do one pursuit quest every 20 hours.

Your efforts will not go unrewarded! Carson Tiva will trade you for this data in their store, plus you'll earn a unique plaque for your contributions! Like event ribbons, this plaque will increase your maximum energy based on your performance.

Collect data, complete the achievements, and earn rewards!

Go to the event area of the Commons to get started, and gather as much data as you can before noon on Tuesday June 2nd, PDT!

Discuss this limited time opportunity on the forums!

BW2: Desktop Launcher 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

The Desktop Launcher

Worried about how you’ll play BW2 after browsers stop supporting Adobe Flash next year? Worry no more! If you’re a Codename Games player, you can click the download button at the top of the game and download the Bush Whacker 2 Desktop Launcher for your computer.

You’ll still be able to play on the web for now, but playing on the Desktop Launcher has several benefits:

1. No need to worry about your Firefox, Chrome, Edge, or other browser supporting Flash! This version of Bush Whacker 2 runs right in the desktop.

2. A bigger, adjustable game window! Drag the edges or corners of the game window to adjust the size, or go full screen. It’s that easy!

3. Chat rooms! Turn on the chat sidebar to chat with your fellow Codename Gamers on the web in the main chat room, or step into one of the other chat rooms, exclusive to players using the Desktop Launcher.

4. Cross-platform chat! Select the “Facebook” or “Armor Games” chat rooms to chat with people on those platforms.

5. A free CNE Hot Air Balloon mount! When you first sign in via the launcher you’ll be given a unique mount!





Installation Instructions

There are two versions: Windows and Mac. Download the right one for your computer and get back to whacking! Here are some step-by-step instructions:

Windows



1. Go to the downloads page

2. Click the “Download Windows” button.

3. Find the "BushWhacker2.exe" file on your computer, typically in your Downloads folder, and double-click it to start the installation.

If you get a "Windows protected your PC" popup, click "More info" then the "Run anyway" button to continue with the installation. View the FAQ for more details on this message.

5. You’ve successfully installed the Bush Whacker 2 Desktop Launcher! Congratulations!

1. Go to the downloads page

2. Click the "Windows Zip" text, underneath the Windows download button.

3. Find the "BushWhacker2.zip" file on your computer, typically in your Downloads folder, and double-click it to open the zip.

Other

For the tech savvy: If your system has Adobe AIR installed, you can use the AIR download instead of the Windows or Mac installers. You can find it at the bottom of the downloads page.

Discuss the new launcher on the forums.

Help & FAQ



If you encounter any problems or require extra support, please submit a support ticket. You can submit a support ticket in the Launcher via the Help Page button found in the in-game Options menu (accessed with the Gear icon.)

FAQ

Q: What is this a solution for exactly?
A: Most browsers, Safari, Edge, Chrome, and Firefox, will no longer support Adobe Flash Player near the end of 2020. Since Bush Whacker 2 needs the Flash Player to run, this will mean you won't be able to play it in these browsers! The Desktop Launcher doesn't need a browser to run, so with it you can keep playing well into the future!

Q: Will I lose my progress?
A: Nope! You can switch between playing on the Codename Games website and the Desktop Launcher. It's the same account, just in a different place!

Q: Is this only for Codename Games website players?
A: Yes. You log in with the same account you use to play on Codename Games.

Q: What about Facebook, Kongregate, and Armor players?
A: At this moment, the Desktop Launcher is only for Codename Games users. We'll address other platforms later on. For Facebook users, you'll be able to play in Facebook Gameroom.

Q: Will the Desktop Launcher work on Mobile (tablet/phone)?
A: No. The Desktop Launcher is only intended for Windows and Mac computers at this time.

Q: I get this message when installing the game on Windows! Help!



A: This message may occur as our app develops reputation with Windows Defender Smartscreen. The Desktop Launcher has a legitimate Code Signing Certificate, which you'll see after continue with the installation. Simply click "More info" then the "Run anyway" button to continue with the installation.

Q: When I open the launcher on Mac, I get a popup asking about a security key or something?

A: The Launcher needs permission to store your login information! Enter your password to grant it access, or simply deny it access. If you deny, know that the program won't be able to remember your login info.

Spine of the World Quest Hub! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Remember that stone idol in your quest bar? Well, the Explorer's League is finally ready to do something with it! If you have the Ancient Stone Artifact from the Cliffs of Korak, then speak to Expedition Leader Magellan in the Explorer's Camp to get started!

This update includes over 50 new story quests, relating to the mysterious society the idol belongs to. Set your brain to the task and start the adventure!

The Town Crier will let you know when enough time has passed that you can journey to the Explorer's Camp and pick up the continuing story quests. As you finish the story parts, you'll unlock new daily quests to do!

Choose carefully though, because once you've started an Explorer's hub daily quest, you won't be able to do any Sanctuary or Cloudland daily quests for the next 20 hours.

Completing the Daily Quests will award you Spine Expedition Coins, which can be used to buy a plethora of exciting custom items and treats from the Ye Extraordinary Explorer's Emporium once you've unlocked the store.

Chat about the update on the forums!

Cloudland Quest Hub 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.


Hi Whackers!

Get ready for a questing good time. The Cloud King needs your help, now that the chaos in his castle has settled down. As you do quests for the King, more hubs will unlock around the castle. Can you complete all 28 new daily quests?

Complete the quests by whacking bushes and critters in Cloudland or the Flux! With each completed quest, you will earn Cloud Tokens that you can use to unlock new hubs, buy unique Cloudland items, and more! You can even get horse armor for your tamed mount!

And don't worry, when we release new content past Cloudland, the hub will stick around so you can return to the Castle to claim the daily quests and do them in Cloudland areas for more tokens if there's still something you want to collect! You'll even be able to do the quests in the new Flux once you reach it!

Talk about your questing fun on the forums!
