Extra Life 2022! 

The end of the year is a time to celebrate what we have with those that we love, and an opportunity to help others to make their year better. So we are absolutely thrilled to participate in our NINTH year of fundraising for Extra Life!

Welcome Back, Extra Life!

Extra Life is a wonderful program set up to raise donations for Children's Miracle Network hospitals. The money raised is donated as unrestricted funds for hospitals to use as needed. How do we help raise that money? By doing what our community loves to do already: play awesome games together!

If you would like to learn more about Extra Life, check out their FAQ for a wealth of information.

What's the Plan for 2022?

Starting Friday, November 18th at 9am Pacific, Codename Entertainment is excited to once again put on a 24-hour Extra Life Twitch Stream! We'll have a huge variety of shows and games, featuring our fantastic CNE staff both in front and behind the camera. Streams include:
  • A Q&A with the founders of CNE!
  • Many D&D games, including a return to dinner and some massive battles!
  • Relaxing shows about gardening and drawing.
  • Speedrunning in Dark Souls and Co-op Miami!
  • Exciting slashing in Beat Saber, and building in Minecraft.
  • ...AND MORE!
Check out the Codename Entertainment Extra Life Page for the full schedule as well as information on how to donate!

How Can We Help?

Along with supporting the 24-hour marathon on our Twitch Stream, we're offering some amazing in game incentives!



You can donate in Bush Whacker 2 by purchasing any of the three different Extra Life package deals! Net proceeds from all purchase of those packs between November 14-20th will be donated to Extra Life! Each pack contains premium Bush Buck currency and Extra Life Elixirs which restore 100% of your max energy. Plus, pick up a Controller sword in the other two packs: The Extra Life TV pack, and the Extra Life Fairy pack! More details will be in the in-game shop!



Everyone can help change kids health to give them a better future, even if you are A PIRATE IN SPACE!

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.

4. Follow the instructions (if you’re not sure, you can just keep clicking Next).

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

Alternative Windows Method

If you don't want to install BW2 to your computer, you can instead download the .zip file and run it from within the folder. Here's how you can do that:

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.

4. Drag the "Bushwhacker2.app" folder from the zip to where ever you'd like to put it. You can close the zip window afterwards.

5. Double-click the "Bushwhacker2.app" folder to open it, and double-click the "Bush Whacker 2.exe" file to run the game!

Mac

1. Go to the downloads page

2. Click the “Download Mac” button.

3. Find the "BushWhacker2.dmg" file on your computer, typically in your Downloads folder, and double-click open and view the contents in a new window.

4. Drag the "BushWhacker2" app into your Applications folder in your Dock or in Finder.

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

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.

Using the Launcher





1. Start the Bush Whacker 2 application. On Windows, you can find and click it in your Start menu, or double-click the shortcut on your desktop if you chose that option on the installer. On Mac, you can find it in your Dock in the Applications folder.

2. Enter your email and password you use to log in on the Codename Games webpage.

3. Check “Remember Me” so you don’t have to enter it again.

4. Click the green “Login” button.

5. If your credentials are correct, then you’ll be playing Bush Whacker 2!

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.

Fighting Homelessness in BW2 


Calling all Whackers!

The Commons has some very special guests for the next few days. Bob and Ruff are here to tell you about homelessness and what you can do to help.

We at Codename Entertainment are showing our support for the Victoria Cool Aid Society’s #buildhomes campaign by donating our share of the proceeds from the purchase of the adorable pet dog Ruff with his Cool Aid colour neck tie. Ruff's bonus changes up to 25% of Nothing wins into Hearts (random energy, mana, and power).

The Victoria Cool Aid Society builds homes, lives and community. They create opportunities for people who are homeless or living in poverty. They make a difference through housing, health care, support and emergency shelters. Founded in 1968, Cool Aid helps over 9,000 people in the Capital Region every year at 14 locations in Langford, Victoria and Saanich, British Columbia. The Society’s major new campaign is to Help End Homelessness by building an additional 360 apartments for people in the community who have no home. #buildhomes

For more information on Cool Aid, click here!

Ruff will be available for purchase until Friday March 27th 2015 at Noon PDT.

Celebrate your purchase by commenting on Facebook, sharing your love on the forums, or tweeting with #gamingforgood.
