The objective of LWOS is to offer some free satoshis to the users, in the form of an online game, so that they can become familiar with the Bitcoin system.
LWOS funding comes mainly from personal funds. Since a few years of activity, different methods have been applied to finance LWOS: advertising agencies, investment, advertising video, webmining, mining, etc.More informations on the Forum.
The game requires a modern browser, a good internet connection and a graphics card.
The game works fine with:
Some browsers are not compatible with the Audio API (Mac OS browser or webkit engine)
You can test your browser here: Test: You should see a dancer chicken around a tree and your FPS.
The game uses WebGL and graphics hardware acceleration.
For mobile/tablet, see here
Your FPS and ping are shown in the right/bottom of game.
If you have less than 20 FPS, your browser's hardware acceleration is probably not enabled. if hardware acceleration is not enabled, it means your processor is doing all the 3D rendering calculations, it is not made for this task. Note that onboard graphics cards (Intel device) are rarely efficient and give rather poor results.
Search on Internet to find out if your browser's hardware acceleration is enabled or not, and how to enable it if necessary.
For Chrome and Opera browser, you can check if the hardware acceleration is enables by typing chrome://gpu/. You should see:

Direct payouts are made every Sunday for players who have reached the payout threshold. Depending on the state of MEMPOOL, fee may apply but transaction fees are mainly paid by LWOS.

To receive your satoshis, it is necessary to have a Bitcoin address.
The best is to have your own Bitcoin wallet, to learn how to use Bitcoin (learn how to receive or send bitcoins).
For having your own Bitcoin wallet:
You can download and install Electrum. You will have a Bitcoin address in a few minutes. Electrum is a wallet very light and easy to use. Website of Electrum
You can also use a Bitcoin address from an exchange (Poloniex, Kraken, BITTREX, etc) or from FaucetHub.
Of course not!
LWOS aims to earn you free satoshis to familiarize you with Bitcoin. So there is no reason for you to deposit some bitcoins.
We draw your attention to the fact that there are many scams in the world of cryptocurrency. If you encounter faucets that offer to deposit some bitcoins to earn more: be really careful. Many websites leave with the cash, without warning!
FPS means: frame per second.
Ideally, your FPS should be that of your monitor, usually 60 FPS.
If you get less than 20 FPS, it probably means that your computer is not using the hardware acceleration of your graphics card and that your processor is doing all the work.
The PING is the time (measured in milliseconds: ms) taken by information to come and go between two machines on a network.
In other words, this is the reaction time of your Internet connection with a specific site.
To play correctly, your PING must be low (under 100ms) and stable.
You can test your PING: here
Your Internet provider or some Internet sites may offer you to test your ping and your rate. However, these tests are not relevant because these tools will connect networks close to you (so probably a very good time). Only the time measured between LWOS and your computer is relevant.
The use of VPN and proxy will tend to increase the ping time.
To limit player activity, LWOS uses a game counting system. The amount of games available to a player is the sum of two counters.
The daily counter: every day (midnight, Paris time), this counter is reset and the player receives 12 new games.
The weekly counter: It is possible to win additional free games (American 8, guessing games) that will be credited to this counter. This counter is reduced by 10% each week (Paris time).
When you have played a game, the weekly counter will be decremented in priority.
If during the game, you have not securised any coins, the counter is not decremented.
Sometimes there are phantom items (coins, mushrooms, landmines) due to the simultaneous add and delete action during the same frame.
Chickens can sometimes crisscross. Try to move anyway, it could unlock the situation. In the worst case, you can self-kill.
Due to a limitation of the game, if you have a high momentum, you can cross some items without releasing them (coins, mushrooms, landmines)
There are no real rules for playing.
The objective of the game is to collect as many balls as possible but nothing prevents a player from playing another objective (disturbing the other players for example). When you're farming balls and other players are trying to loot your crop, that's pretty normal! The competition between players is quite normal. You can protect yourself with the flowers and attack by poisoning players. You can also join a team to get more support.
Note that some players have technical difficulties playing correctly and their behavior can be interpreted as aggressive when it is not (a player pushing you into the water by accident).
The value of the balls to be collected in satoshi is calculated at the start of each game and is a function of the funds available and the time. Based on the attendance of the past week, a corrective factor is applied. The objective is to balance profitability and not to favor off-peak hours.
At off-peak hours there are fewer players and competitiveness, players will pick up a lot of balls with less value, in satoshi.
Conversely, at peak hours, there are more players and more competitiveness, players will collect fewer balls but with a higher value, in satoshi.
Check the hours chart: here
LWOS uses real-time finance. The unit value of each ball to be picked up is calculated based on funds available and time slot. If this value drops below a certain threshold (ie 0.01 satoshi), the game engine will not offer a new game and will loop until better conditions.
Try to come back for the next time slot.
Check the time slot chart and read the news about LWOS on forum.
The objective of Temps Chocolate is to bring together a maximum of players for an intense moment of pleasant competition. Team play is preferred.
Since the 23th September 2019, The regular Chocolate times are over.
However, the Special Chocolate Times are maintained, to celebrate the Seasons (Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring)
The regular Chocolate times were taking place each weekend, the Saturday and Sunday, at 17:00 UTC.
Unless otherwise stated, The special Chocolate times take place at 17:00 UTC too, the day of the event.
a Chocolate Time lasts 1 hour (5/6 maps). The played maps are selected according to the votes received before the starting. Some maps can be added for the event (Ring map, for example)
If there is a Chocolate Time to come, a counter is displayed on the right panel, indicating the time remaining before the event.During a Chocolate Time:
Nowadays, difficult to escape the affiliate systems: they are everywhere!
Affiliation systems are designed to reward users based on the number of affiliates. To be done, all too often, users do not hesitate to pollute the communication spaces (forums, social networks, chat room, etc.) to promote a service or a website with their affiliate link.
In the end, the information is biased: you don't know if this person is promoting a service or a website for its quality ... or only on the possible reward of affiliation!LWOS has chosen not to use such a system. You can promote LWOS objectively to your friends,
Initially, LWOS had many more translated and dedicated pages depending on the language. Unfortunately, with each modification of the content, it requires a lot of work and moreover, the translation is often of poor quality, except for French and English.
Also, it has become easier to offer only English with optionally the ability to translate the page with Google with a button.
For obvious errors of translation (keywords, etc), you can always propose a better translation on our Forum!
LWOS works with the smallest unit, the satoshi, and only credits player accounts with full values of satoshis. However, recently a new system has been put in place to collect satoshis crumbs from players. The system regularly checks if a player has enough crumbs to have an integer value of satoshi and credits its account accordingly.For example, a player collects for 1.8 in a game. 1 will be credited and 0.8 put in the garbage collector. In the next game, the player collects 0.2. 0 is credited and 0.2 is put in the garbage collector. A little later, the system will detect that 0.8+0.2=1 and the player will receive +1.
