I altered the cool down for batches, before there was a 6 hour limiter which didn't allow you to do a batch again for 6 hours. This has been removed and instead batches will be able to assign there own cool down, rather than all batches having the same cool down.
With this said, all batches are set to a 0 minute cool down. (No limiter)
I have also timed up all batch results (You can do any batch again if done in the last 6 hours), and to make things a little bit more flexible I removed the read code, so if you accidentally enter a batch in ranked mode and decide to not do it, you will be able to enter it again at a later time.
If you haven't noticed yet, the objective of ranked mode for a batch is to get all the gold and exp for that batch. Once you do so, you will no longer gain any gold or exp for that batch. If you score a 100% on a batch, you will gain a back or front title which you can use to customize your profile.
Hope you enjoy the update :)
It's been quite awhile since our last update, first and foremost, I feel it's necessary to say happy 'late' New Year everyone! It was a pretty dark end for animeHooD 2012, but this year, 2013, will be THE year for us. We are motivated, enthusiastic, have high hopes that aH will become successful, and we will make sure it happens.
We have future plans in motion, and aim to implement them very soon. For now, just know that animeHooD isn't dead, it's very alive and we are working on something great behind the scene with the entire staff. This is something that should have been done for animeHooD from the start of this vivid yet hard journey into becoming a successful anime fan-based website.
With that said, on to the update.
New batch for Naruto:
-> Carelessness is your worst enemy
- You can earn 50 EXP and 70 Gold from this batch
- Getting a 100% will give you the front title "The Careless..."
And we are happy to introduce to you all a new category! :
-> Silver-Eyed Slayers
- You can earn 55 EXP and 75 Gold from this batch - Getting a 100% will give you the front title "Silver-eyed Witch..."
-> Claws in the Sky
- You can earn 70 EXP and 100 Gold from this batch
- Getting a 100% will give you the back title "...in the Sky"
We have remade the UCP (User Control Panel) on the site, added collapse and show buttons to the news containers, and paginated the batches within the anime display page, which will now show from newest to oldest.

Edit: There have been issues with the layout, if you experience anything weird press f5!
It's time for animeHooD to receive the first major update since the release.
We were hoping to release this update last week, but a lot of things came up for both I and Xanstiou and so we couldn't manage.
On that note, we have been working the last couple of weeks, day and night, really hard to fix some game engine flaws and 'attempt' to make your gaming experience much more enjoyable.
- Game Changes [TL:DR]
- New Features [TL:DR]
- Layout Changes [TL:DR]
- Bug Fixes
- New Batches!
Limiter altered (Yay!, wait wut?!) :
As most of you may or may not know the system rewards only the first 30 members that take a batch. We considered that this wasn't a really good approach when it comes to rewarding the users and that this may be an obstacle for the new users which will have to wait for new batches to be added in order to get any reward and compete with the top players in the gold and/or experience ladder.
The staff gathered together and came up with a pretty cool idea to fix this flaw. The new limiter is simple, each batch has a certain amount of gold and experience as it's reward for it being completed, that is set up by us (the staff). Let's say we set a batch up to reward 300 gold and 300 experience. Whenever you take that batch and you get rewarded, that reward will decrease the amount of gold and experience you can be rewarded for that batch, which is 300 gold and 300 experience.
So let's say that on your first try of 'The One Shot Kishimoto' you get a 70%, as such, you are rewarded 200 gold and 200 experience. The batch gives 300 gold and 300 experience, so the next time you take this batch you will only be able earn 100 gold and 100 experience ( 300 ( Total Gold you can earn for 'The One Shot Kishimoto' ) - 200 ( Gold you earned on your first try of 'The One Shot Kishimoto' ) ).
If you did NOT understand this example, make sure you PM me or Xanstiou and we will try to make it as clear as possible for you.
With this game change, we also had to remodel the batch layout located within an anime.
. Revamped the limiter system.
. Revamped the batch layout located within an anime.
. Have any issues understanding this, pm me or Xanstiou.
Blank question pop-up advisor ( Yessss I can be distracted again while doing batches! ) :
If you have left a question blank or various questions blank ( maybe due to being distracted and/or not reading the game manual ( shame on you! ) ), you will get a pop-up message asking if you want to proceed with submittion.
Titles ( I shall win the first contest for best profile! ~ Xanstiou ) :
Titles are a bunch of text formed by merging two pieces of text, front title and back title.
The front and back titles are awarded in every batch currently available, the only requirement is to score a 100% on the batch you want the title from. We set the stacks pretty low for now, but do expect more 'challenging' requirements in future batch updates.
Your title formed by the front and the back titles will be displayed in your profile on top of your profile background image which you will find out more about below.
Profile background images ( again, me < all of you ~ Xanstiou ) :
You can now display a background image on your profile ( as I said above ) , up until now you weren't able to change it but now, we allow you to do that by going to the title and background edit page. ( This goes for titles too )
There you'll be able to specify a link to your desired profile background image, position it ( depending on the size of the image ) by dragging the image and moving it around, select your Front and Back title, change the texts color of your title and even the font size, all in real time thanks to the live preview container we provided on the top of the page, Be creative ;) !
. Pop-up message if you leave questions blank while submitting a batch.
. Profile background images.
You can now share our news posts with your friends, family, and other people on social websites like Twitter and Facebook. This will also help our community increase its activity, we encourage you to use them oftenly.
View Anime Batch Layout
The statistics section is now merged into 2 tabs; the first containing statistics for that batch: General statistics and your statistics, and the second tab containing Gold, Experience, and the titles you've earned from it.
. New layout for the News, please support us by sharing this post and all other futures posts with the 'Share this' option below!
. New layout for View Anime -> Batch Layout.
There was a bug in which users were able to submit a batch more than once, due to there internet/browser speed, it has now died, and those users abusing this bug have been 'nerfed'.
If you know of anyone that has abused this, please contact me or Xanstiou.
New batches for Naruto, Bleach and Fairy Tail.
This is it for now and we will make sure to keep you informed of updates, on the forum and ask for your opinion/feedback.
Raziel and Xanstiou.
Greetings animeHooD community,
As you might have noticed that the last couple of weeks we have been unable to properly update the game with new content and fix the bugs you reported in the forum. This was due to some internal staff problems that are currently solved now, and our real life, considering the fact that some of us have to take a few exams by now.
Since now we can afford some free time we will be spending it updating animeHooD, and in the next few days we will try to add the features which we started working on before these incidents.
One last thing folks, I reset the batches, all batches will give rewards again. This reward system is changing, expect this change next along with a few new 'neat' features.
We have added new batches for Naruto, One Piece and Fairy Tail. I hope you guys and girls will enjoy them.
Now let's get to the bigger updates. Based on the feedback we received in the forum we decided to change the game's core a bit.
Firstly, I will start by saying that the 24 hour limit on the batches has been decreased to just 6 hours because we decided it's a lot of time just to play that batch again.
Secondly we modified the timers because some of you thought they don't give you enough time on some batches.
So the timers work like this: For difficulty 1 you'll get 1 minute, for difficulty 2 you'll get 2 minutes, for difficulty 3 you'll get 3 minutes and for difficulty 4 and 5 you'll get 4 minutes.
Thirdly, we timed up all the results in order for you to be able to take the batches which have the time limit again.
Fourthly and lastly, we fixed the submittion bug. If this bug continues to occur to you, please go here and post the error you are having.
I hope you'll enjoy this update and remember that more is on the go.
