As you might have noticed, I have recently become interested in contributing to the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood Wiki, and I have taken to editing and adding information to the Venice location page . I know it may not look very fancy, but I have taken a couple hours to look at many of the other beautifully edited location pages for references in style. :) The reason I am messaging you today is because I have noticed on other pages that there are photos that depict a somewhat panoramic/entire view of a location, and I want to know if you can provide the information on how to capture those photos. (btw I'm sorry if I'm not explaining myself very well lol).
<Here is an example of the type of picture I was referencing
I am confused about how one would get an entire location view like this one. I have a KKH account myself, and if I tried to screenshot each frame of the location, my current level icon (upper right-hand corner of my phone screen) and goals (upper left-hand corner of my phone screen) would get in the way of the picture. If you could tell me about how this picture was obtained in terms of screenshotting the picture from the game, or any other type of method, that would be absolutely fantastic. :)
Hi Sam! Thanks very much for your contributions! This Wikia has been a little outdated and it's been a hard job trying to get everything back up to speed; I'm very grateful for your help! ♥
To answer your questions, the pictures were manipulated within a picture-editing program like Photoshop, with all of the game stats edited out. It takes a lot of zooming in and zooming out, and painting/drawing over the screenshots you've taken by hand. Here's a basic tutorial on YouTube, should you like to give it a go.
It can be a bit of a hassle trying to piece it all together, but what you can always do is take as many screenshots of a location as you can on your phone/tablet, and upload them on the page without editing them - that way, I can create a seamless panoramic view!
Thank you so much for replying!! Your answer makes so much sense and I'm eager to try out what you said! I'll try to add more to the location pages today and hopefully come out with those street views :). I have another small question if it's not too much trouble; for the icons and tappables, what editing software did you use? I added a couple images onto the Venice page that I edited the background out myself with a couple of apps on my phone. Also, (I know I'm full of questions lol) I am wondering how you got the images and icons on many wiki pages to be so clear and of high resolution. I have been just screenshotting images from the game, and I'm wondering if there is a better option for getting more quality photos, if that makes sense. That's all for now, but thank you SO much for providing clarity on my street view question!
Have an amazing day!
Hi Sam - I've tried to address your questions one by one below!
The program I use is Adobe Photoshop. That is an expensive, paid program, but there are some free alternatives you can try (GIMP is a well-known one)!
I've taken screenshots from the game with my iPhone, but any phone with a halfway decent camera will do just fine! If you import the pictures directly from your phone onto the computer and edit them there, you'll notice that the images stay much clearer, because the resolution isn't decreased as much.
Thank you again for helping out, I hope this helps! ♥
First of all, I wanted to congratulate you on reviving this wiki! Great job so far!!!
I have noticed that there are a lot of templates which are purely images, like the cash icon, when they can easily be added with the [[File:]] tag. I was thinking if I may remove them altogether and replace them with the tag in the articles? Just to clean up a lot of unnecessary templates.
Also, the layout of the goal articles currently do not match the colors of the latest version of the app. I wanted to create a uniform template for all the goals but I don't know if it will be acceptable. Can you help me with this?
Hi! Thank you for your kind words - hopefully we'll be able to get this Wiki back up to speed soon :)
To answer your questions:
You're right about there being a handful of image-only templates! Although they can, of course, be manually inserted into pages using the [[File:]] tag, the templates also contain information about the way the image sits on the page; link to important pages (for example, the Cash template links to the Currency page); and dictate the size of the images.
In this way, the templates standardize the appearance of the images and this makes it easier to add all of that information to the Wiki at once, so it's not really necessary to remove them just now. All in all, this Wikia has just 60 templates, which really isn't that much!
The goal pages are currently a bit of a mess, you're right about that, too! After some fiddling, I've created the Template:Goals template, which shall be the new standard for the goal pages, so please use that from now on!
I am the founder of this wiki and was heavily involved in all the stardom games. I just wanted to say thanks for reviving this work! I've been too busy with life to play these games or edit anymore. I've kind it grown out of mobile games sadly... And I'm glad someone has finally stepped up to this massive mess I had to leave behind haha. Let me know if you meed anything or have any questions, but I think you are doing a great job! Thanks!
Hi Shiro! Oh my goodness, what a lovely message <3
I do understand that life can get in the way, and I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been playing very much; perhaps one day you'll be able to play again! Thank you very much for your support, I'm happy to take on this project and try and get everything back up to speed.
I'm currently working on adding all the images to the Kustomize page, including the ones released for special events this year! I'm afraid it will be very hard for me to work backwards from this year on, because the events are usually a one-off and I might not have taken screenshots of all of them :(
I was one of the oringial Admins for this site and thought I would log in just to see what's been going down since I last left it, (Life, work etc) and noticed that you are the new admin :) Glad you liked mine and OneStormy Night's Home page layout and decided to keep it. Haven't looked round the rest of the site yet.
Only messaging really to wish you luck and to ask to have my permissions to at least edit my profile page pretty please :3
Hello! Ah, that's so fun ^_^ We're indeed super close, then!
To answer your question, a quick way to level up would be to date. Going on dates, especially when your ranking is still below the A-list can get you to get there faster.
Personally, I've found completing the goals that come with each level also get you to the A-list in a reasonable amount of time. The game is set-up, if you do nothing else, to get you to the A-list at around level 14, if you do those!
I'm hoping you can help as you are my last resort. I'm having a technical issue with the KKH game which Glu Support are struggling to help me with.
Allow me to provide you with the details of the issue so far.
iPhone 6s iOS 11.3
24.4GB of 64GB remaining memory
Game version 8.5.0
WiFi 208MB download speed
Affected Game: Kim Kardashian Hollywood
I am unable to access the Kim Kardashian Hollywood game as when I open the game it starts a phone call with Maria in response to a mission I had completed. I can cycle through the phone call but once it ends the game then freezes and closes.
The issue started over 4 updates ago but i believe it is not update related as I could play it fine after I had updated. I think it is the mission I’m on at the moment as just after I had completed the mission I received the phone call from Maria and the issue then began.
Because of this issue I am unable to open the settings of the game to provide the support team with my Game ID. I understand this is a part of the way Glu find my account which is making it harder for my issue to get resolved.
My own diagnostics:
When the issue first happened I uninstalled the game, rebooted my phone and reinstalled but the issue remained. I then decided to download the app on my iPad Mini (also iOS 11.3) and then recover my game. The issue also presented itself on the iPad.
This is the only game to which I have this issue.
My Glu support experience:
When I first reported my issue I was told the issue was due to my internet connection, phone memory available or that the game was not updated to the newest version. After I provided details that I am on the latest version, have a great internet speed and have over 30GB space on my phone I was then told that I needed to present you with my Game ID which I then told the support team I could not do this. The support team continued to close my incidents with them, stating that it is a defect of the game and I needed to just wait for the next update.
4 updates later......
I’m still unable to access the game. I have reported this issue to Glu support multiple times and I have not once had a decent experience. They have continued to close incidents with me for no reason and asked me continuously to provide them with information I had already told them I cannot provide.
Without my Game ID the support team have said the only way they can potentically fix my issue is to find out the name of the goal that i'm stuck on so they can see if it's an issue with that particular goal.
I would like your help in finding out what the name is of the goal i'm stuck on. I have screenshots and chat logs of the phone call to help you. I've searched this site but have not seen it on here.
Maria is calling*
Maria Holmes: [Your Name], I happen to see you making waves with David Smith.
You: What? Really?
Maria Holmes: Paparazzi never lies. And from these photos i'm looking atyou should have nothing to be embarrassed about. David is hot!
Maria Holmes: Does he have any friends?
You: Ah... Well...
Maria Holmes: Anyway, that's not what i'm calling about.
You: It's not?
Maria Holmes: No, I have a new event for you to attend. Get out there, shake some hands, then you can get back to your hot date
You: Thanks Maria.
Conversation ends and the game crashes*
Glu support want me to delete my save and start again but i've spent over £100 on this game and i'm not about to go back to the start again and lose all my progress. I've had the game since it came out. Please if you can help me that would be amazing.
I've seen your post here and in the Discussions - what an annoying issue to experience!! I'll respond to both because I don't know which you'll check first, but it might be easier to continue communicating in one spot - I'd recommend this message! :)
I'm sorry to hear that the support you've received so far hasn't been up to scratch, that is really annoying. I've also done a search and the goal isn't up on the Wiki yet, so you're right.
The information you've supplied does sound a little familiar, so I was hoping you could you let me know which level you are on in the game? That should be displayed in the top left hand corner of your screen, if you don't know where to look.
I've got information at the ready up until level 25 and I'm working on processing the screenshots for the rest of the levels in the game, so if I know whereabouts I'm supposed to be looking, I might be able to help you out before you have to resort to fully reinstalling!
