$68 should be enough for a CPU that costs $54 to manufacture.
There are hidden costs for balancing purposes. I recommend always adding at the very least $20 (maybe unless you're creating an extremely cheap CPU where you can get away with less) to the manufacturing cost.
If it keeps telling you $110 is not enough, could you provide a screenshot?

That would make a lot of sense, as only the first track is preloaded.

You can click 'Yes' if you want to sell such a CPU.
Are you playing with mods? What is the price of your CPU?

I'm still looking for a nice balance between the difficulties, which is especially hard, given every update throws it off one way or another. The game has probably never been easier, so I'll definitely work on making future hard difficulties feel tougher.

I have no clue either
Are you playing in the browser? Maybe it's just taking long to load in.

That is not a bug:

Why can't I have more than one CPU selling at once?
Bad early design decisions... I will add the ability to have multiple products on the market pretty soon.

Do you mean being able to add new research via mod tool or would you just like to see more research?
If it's the latter - I will add much more content as time goes on. I'm focusing more on getting the core gameplay right for now.

Frankly, the main reason I released an update quicker than usual is because there was an annoying bug in the game. For the next update I want to actually add a pretty large feature, and that always takes me a lot of time. Besides, I'd like to focus on the last month of school and learning actual programming now.

Even if I said yes, never trust me when it comes to deadlines.

For a long time I've wanted to make it possible to sell and design multiple CPUs at once, but for now I just start designing the next CPU while the previous one is still in its prime and I've never had any issues with this playstyle.

P.S. I'm glad :)

I'm glad!
Integrated graphics is something I'd like to add at some point, but we'll see.

I didn't give up, just kind of hit a slump. My priority right now is to improve the balance, as many people have reported issues with it. That means you're more likely to see yet another small update before 0.2.9, and I don't really have an ETA.

Uhh... the next decade

"Not final, will change in the official release."

The graphics weren't in place yet.

Me too

Point 8.
Sorry, not right now. Also there's no coding involved.

Perhaps if it's called Hardware Tycoon

Use m (amount) for money, and I think the command that unlocks research went like "r u", but you might want to double-check it with the help command.

It wasn't really intended to be seen by normal users, but you can press '`' and type h into the console to see al commands.

Please read the 4th point

There are no CPUs after 1993: https://hardware-tycoon.fandom.com/wiki/Competing_CPUs

1. Offices and employees are planned: https://itch.io/t/214142/planned-features

2. I add new technologies every update.

3. https://itch.io/t/214142/planned-features and https://itch.io/t/210226/frequently-asked-questions

4. We will see about that.

The file named nw is the one you're supposed to run.

what

I'm glad :D
Good luck to you!

Press ` or type x in the box.

It's okay, I don't think he's particularly rude anyway. I understand why he's saying such things

Frankly, I wouldn't say it's challenging yet. At least if you don't know the formula for success. I want to mitigate this by adding new mechanics, such as employee management (and staff would affect research speeds!). Thanks for the kind words but there's still a lot to do ;D!

Truth is, I forced myself to work on the game one day and I only got irritated, which made everything worse. My motivation plummeted and I haven't made much progress since then, but I'm not leaving the game for good.

Yes, it doesn't seem to be anything I could fix myself.
Thank you for the kind words!

Thanks! I swear I want to make it much better.

The mac issue is known, I can't seem to be able to fix it as it's a nw.js issue. Perhaps the next update will help because it uses the newest version of it.

Thanks! I will keep working on it thanks to people like you :D

No worries, I won't be slapping a price tag on the game anytime soon

Thank you a lot! Maybe I will finish the next version thanks to you :D
Normally I'd send an e-mail expressing my gratitude but I guess it's not needed here

As stated numerous times:

This decade

The point is that it seems like medium is not in the sweet spot (it is easier than hard and harder than easy, but not the experience it should be , apparently).
Well, I'm glad you fell that way! It certainly is a major part of the experience, but not everyone thinks that. Some people just give up (that's what easy should be for). The game isn't as balanced as it should be yet, I'm constantly working on it.
Good luck!

Yes, don't worry it's not THAT unbalanced. It can be beaten on every difficulty, just not as easily.
Some people think medium is way too hard and others say it's too easy :/

Could you provide more details?

If it doesn't run then try deleting Hardware Tycoon folder in C:\Users\*your username*\AppData\Local

Alright, all versions are available to download from here: https://mega.nz/#F!LoxHnAwZ!VSXOQsnHfKEp7QIuV2PvJw
I only have Windows-64 bit ones and 0.2.7 is available on GameJolt as mentioned previously.

Alright, I guess there is some appeal in playing older versions. I can't upload them here, because there's a size limit, but I can upload it to some cloud and link it here. I'll do it tomorrow, when hopefully my connection won't be as slow.

For now, you can play 0.2.7 on this site: https://gamejolt.com/games/hardware-tycoon/47494
