In september 2010 my interest for social gaming started. FarmVille(FV) caught my attention because I had in a long time wondered why it had so many users. So I decided to try it and it really was a joy to play.
However there was an element of the game that I didn’t like. In FV and almost all other Facebook(FB) game neighbors send gifts to each other through FB. These gifts end up in the FB “mailbox”. To transfer them into your game you need to click on 3-4 links for each gift to accept and send a thank-you gift. At a certain level in the game of FV I got really tired of this routine. Because I had gotten many neighbors and got really many gifts. The game makers are highly encouraging you to get more neighbors and play many of their games. But they don’t help you much against the huge amount of gifts in the gift box.
So I got the idea to create FV Extender as an extension for Google Chrome. The basic idea was to let it click the links in FB without the need of a human hand.
It is not intended that any of the features will in any way ruin the experience for the neighbors in FarmVille. Instead the features will focus on doing the opposite for both players and their neighbors.
New in 3.1.31:
* A workaround added for FV stability issues.
New in 3.1.30:
* Added added an option "Enable workaround for empty list of requests" that is enabled as default - to make FVE work again with recent modifications by FB.
New in 3.1.29:
* A tiny bugfix related to 3.1.29 that made FVE stop before time if number of seconds was set above 20.
New in 3.1.28:
* Added a new setting that can be used to slow down the processing by a number of seconds to limit the bandwidth FVE uses.
