    Guys, is there any way at all to tell which potatoes I have and haven't collected? I have 34, I'm sure I've done them all but evidently I've missed one. No fucking way am I doing all that again!
    Mostly from memory I'd assume. Be sure to take a look through here and find any ones that haven't stuck out to you: http://valvearg.com/wiki/Potato_Sources

    Edited:

    How exactly does the 'refresh the game to clock hours' method work?
    Simply restart the game.

    This website makes it seem this is rigged. Like the Golden Wrenches. It wouldn't surprise me.
    That graph is pretty linear. If we really don't have any influence I'll be pretty disappointed as that will mean this was just a giant scheme to get people to buy the pack. :smith:

    If it were worth going into the IRC I'd point out that the 1.334 hours is because of the about 3,500 people playing just because of the ARG.
    snip, they changed it.

    At least finish AAAAAA before you switch focus. There isn't much left of it.

    If you keep restarting the game, does it continue to add the hours you've already clocked up on your account?

    Restarting does nothing.

    I think it just adds the hours of your previous session.

    They know that, they are going for Super Meat Boy after they are done with AAAAAA, he forgot to mention it in his post but you can see it in the ARG wiki.
    I'd believe that if the wiki didn't change the current focus already.

    That's the point. They switch focus before it is finished because people playing the game will finish it by themselves. There's a steady 1 % for most games. The focus usually gives 1% more to speed up the process.

    Most people playing it are people involved with the ARG.

    They changed it now, but when I was showing this to a friend since his overlay is broken, I pasted him this which was what used to be in the wiki after they prioritized Super Meat Boy and such.

    It would figure that the only two games I have in the potato pack are the ones that matter the least. Oh well I got those potatos at least.

    So this website shows that the % completed is moving linearly. Wouldn't that mean we have no influence over the rate it increases? If the potatoes were multipliers it would be exponential, wouldn't it?
