Meet the AngryBirdsNest Crew

Maintaining AngryBirdsNest.com is definitely a team effort and without the support of the amazing Angry Birds community (read: you) none of this would be possible, so from all of us, “Thank you”. Also, a BIG thanks to Rovio for giving us permission to do what we do.

Bird Leader

Bird Leader

I created AngryBirdsNest.com in the summer of 2010 as a way to give back to the Angry Birds community while helping myself conquer this amazingly addictive game. My then 3-year-old son and I played A LOT of Angry Birds and back then there really wasn’t an easy way to get help or share strategies. Having a background in web development and video games, I thought I’d approach Rovio and ask them if I could create a fan site. To my surprise, they agreed and even provided some of the very assets (artwork, etc.) you see today. I guess the rest is history. While I don’t respond to as many comments as I used to, I am still actively involved on the site on a daily basis.

The man, the myth, the legend. In addition to being one of our main contributors, Slim is also the chief moderator. He single handily responds to hundreds of comments each week, helping thousands of Angry Birds players along the way. It doesn’t stop there though. He has superpowers! Shhhhh… One such power gives him super news-sleuthing ability. Another allows him to store vast amounts of Angry Birds data in his cerebral cortex. Yet another allows him to understand something called “number theory”. Yeah, who knew. I just don’t want to get on his bad side.

Sal comes to us from the world of game modding. Yes, he’s l33t, so be careful. Exactly how his background in modding translates into an amazing ability to fling our cute feather friends we may never know, but we’re not ones to complain. In addition to being a top flinger Sal is also a gifted graphic designer. If you haven’t already, definitely check out the awesome Angry Birds backgrounds he has been nice enough to share with the ABN community (yes, showering us with gifts can help you become a moderator). These are just two of Sal9’s nine talents. The other seven are: shaving, chewing gum, breaking bottles over his head, smiling, putting lots of straws together to make one really big straw, tic-tac-toe, and last, but not least, jogging backwards.

E-Star

E-Star

If you need an honest answer that comes with a free smile E-Star (E*) is your gal. Permanently happy, and a gadget geek at heart, E-Star has taught herself how to play Angry Birds on two iPads simultaneously, all while teaching young children that pigs really are green. Seriously, who knew?! When she is not mentoring our future world leaders on the benefits of having an asterisk in their pseudonym, she can be found annihilating pigs in Angry Birds Seasons (of course capturing every second on HD video). While breaks are rare for E*, she does occasionally jump up, put her game face on, then run around her iPad while doing the ‘Vogeltjesdans’.

SweetP

SweetP

Watch out Mad Max, SweetP is our resident road warrior! Born in Hawaii, she is the only person to have ever ridden a motorcycle non-stop all the way across the Pacific Ocean to California. When she finally hit land she was so exhausted that she just couldn’t go on, so this is where she has been ever since. Wait?! I think I forgot the part about the sharks. Oh well, moving on … When SweetP is not tearing up the road, or out on the links, she’s probably helping a fellow flinger on the Nest or attending to the daily Angry Birds Challenge. Like Mad Max before her, that’s just how she rolls! And we thank her for it.

Hello There, I have a confusion regarding the serial key of angry birds star wars PC, which I recently purchased.In Rovio FAQ, they said one key is valid for ” three installs” so my questions are:

1.Does updating three times via the in-game updater will count as ” three installs”? If yes, do I need to purchase another key after three updates?

2.If I download the recent demo installer instead and over-install it over the old one before uninstalling it, will it still be counted?

Any suggestion would be helpful.Thank You

I think I can answer both of these questions simultaneously.

Updating your app does not count as an “Install”. When you update your app, all data files should remain intact (I say “should” because, while very rare, things can go wrong, as with any update). Whether you use the in-game auto-updater or download the new .exe file by clicking “Download Free Demo”, this remains the same.

Thank you guys for all your time and efforts, it is all very much appreciated :) When I first came here in September ’12 My ranking at GameCenter for ABO was something like 480.After posting all my scores here it was easy to see where I could improve the most (at least a third of my scores were below average). I am now in top 100 at GameCenter, and top 50 here. No way I could have done it without the help of Angry Bird’s Nest and so many people who graciously share their strategy and tips. Again, thank you for this website!

I have a problem regarding the ads on this site. I use KIS 2012 and have anti-banner enabled. Thus most of the ads in this site does not load. But on any page, below the “My Rank, Categories, Comments” option, ads always show up either above or below the “Support ABN! Advertise Here →” link. Is there any way of disabling it? Thanks in advance.

@AMslimfordy, I know this is not the place for this but I could not find any other place to write. The Mighty Dragon walkthroughs are something that I hope for. I have not been able to achieve 100% destruction with the dragon on any level of YOTD. The dragon just does not do enough damage! And I have not seen any koi fish walkthroughs at ABN also. Will you please tell me how and where to find them? I hope I am not intruding on this community’s rules and regulations.

I have a question regarding the average scores written for each level. How are these determined? Does Rovio provide them? While I see that all of the 3-star scores end in zero and are round figures(often), however most of the average scores end in odd figures; why is that?

Rank: Sling God with 27765 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Average score = AVG(list of all scores entered on the ABN Leaderboard for that level)

@AMslimfordy, I recently formatted my ipad and so all my AB games are lost(backup were made though). I had purchased the SE Huge bundle once(the 980 one, when it was available) and after fomatting it is gone. Can I recover my purchase?

Rank: Sling God with 27765 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

How did you backup the data?

By Golldd

Used the method here at ABN and have also copied the purchases.lua file but I forgot to make an iTunes backup. Will it affect anything since I have not started the restore procedure yet out of fear of losing the eagles

Rank: Sling God with 27765 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

iTunes backups are strictly precautionary (we highly advice it in case something goes wrong, but it’s not required). When you copy back to whatever device you will be using going forward, your Eagles should be held in that purchases file.

@amandeep yeah IKR that skill of playing simultaneously I kept hidden for a while now. But is really affective when trying to reach for the top ;)

There are so many sides to little me, explaining them is nearly impossible. I think @birdleader did a great job at capturing the majority of them, leaving out the designer skills was my own decision, cause I found the other stuff more fun to tell. Many of you know I can do my magic with the design stuff, but I think not many of you know I am doing the “vogeltjesdans” to please the AB gods :D

By Golldd

Since this is a miscellaneous question I decided to post it here:
@burpie, found one of your comments(July 31) in the forum(No more daily rewards on some ab games?) where you have addressed that you have reverted to v1.3 on ABSp for daily free Space Eagles. Since you are playing on Android I thought you would help me out a bit.
1. How do you revert back? GP only has v1.5.2(I would like to revert back too). By any chance do you mean the unofficial apks out there on the web?
2. Is it possible to back up eagles from another version(1.3) and restore it with scores, stars, feathers from another version(like 1.5.2)?
Any kind of help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Whoever was making the Angry Birds walkthroughs from Poached Eggs to Birdday Party, thanks very much. I couldn’t have achieved Golden Eggs 4, 7, 12, 17, 21, 25, or the King Pig Level without them.

At the end of each video, there is a Credit screen showing who made the vids.
I know most people don’t realize that because most (myself included) will pause the vid when the level complete score shows up.

@BirdLeader @AMSlimfordy @FujiToast — Gaah! I knew Fuji had been mostly working on RocketPond for the last couple of years, but didn’t know he had moved on. Hope Fuji has great success in his new projects, as he surely must. Didn’t he do all of the early videos?
It may be late, but Fuji’s departure from all ABN / RocketPond endeavors deserves a special post. Can you say what he is doing now?

I’ve only been here a short time, but I wanted to thank everyone involved, @birdleader for creating the site, @amslimfordy and the rest for all the work it takes to maintain. ironically a year or two ago my wife had a transient affair with Angry Birds. I personally didn’t see the cause for fascination. a few months ago a major medical issue was preventing me from getting more than two or three hours of sleep a night. one morning at about 0200 I happened to see angry birds in the App Store. I tried the free version, then a day or two later bought hd. I’ve since played through AB twice, SW twice, seasons, rio twice, space, even tried go (but I drive so badly I’m afraid the internet police will charge me with a DUI and confiscate my ipad). this website has helped me keep what little sanity I have. without the tips, strategies, and the comraderie I would probably be sitting in the corner mumbling to myself about pigs and lasers. I became unchained to pay back, however slightly, for the hours (and hours and hours and hours etc..) of entertainment AB and this site have provided. just knowing I’m not the only one who will sit throwing the same bird over and over on the same level, one time for 7 hours, helps immensely. I may not get the highest scores, but I’ve gotten a couple decent ones, mostly due to strats posted by others. so once again, thanks to all involved.

@Jkhab69 Quite a lot of people on ABN (and in the BP) have a similar story to yours. Apparently, when smart people encounter a life-affecting issue, our first response is to fling small feathered creatures into porcine construction sites. Nobody really know why, but it seems to help. Anyway, we’re glad to have you around, and hope to see you in the BP more. Also, thanks for becoming uncaged and supporting the site. It’s guys like you that keep it going.

@jkhab69 Thank you, not only for sharing your story, but also for taking the time to leave a note of appreciation and getting uncaged. Wished it wasn’t due to a major medical issue that your path lead to the nest, but happy the Nest and all the wonderful people in it, kept you from turning into a mumbling frustrated birdie. See you soon in the Bloated Pig I’ll buy you a beverage!

@e-star it all worked out for the best. I ended up here, and with the other people who as @kelanie said, fling small feathered creatures into porcine construction sites. I just wish there were more AB levels. I didn’t get addicted to bad piggies, I didn’t get addicted to Stella, I got addicted to angry birds. hopefully Rovio remembers what made them so profitable. at least this site helps to put a new spin on old levels with the daily challenge. yet another benefit !!!
