You can do that without K+ – In fact, you can, oddly enough, do it with Adblock. Load your list of blockable items, type “.swf” into the filter, and you’ll see about five urls in the list; copy the one that contains “kongregate_game_version” near the end, and paste that into a new browser window. Bam, fullscreen gaming.

Of course, not all games properly support that, and instead of a bigger game you may just get tons of annoying glitches – And you can’t get badges like that (because the chat doesn’t load). But you can have something as big as your screen allows, anyway. ;)

sorry if this has been mentioned before but are there any plans to add more benefits to kong+?

I would consider buying it if it had more perks. I cant think of anything at the moment, but maybe changing the main page interface? I really dont feel the need to see all the recently popular, top games this month, and recommended games tabs. Would be nice if I could hide them. And maybe re arrange other stuff. But that all sounds complicated anyways :p

However I don’t see a problem with giving $30 to support a website one heavily uses. especially if it provides some benefits. On another note, it would be nice to have a short (possibly 3 day) free trail. Without the free kreds of course.

Also lol at people complaining about ads. I dont mind having to wait 5 seconds to skip an ad on every game I play. I do mind having an un-skippable 30 second ad. Also its not as bad as yahoo which has random adds in the middle of a video (that would be funny here lol) And then there si stuff like ad block which I dont use but many fing useful

I really agree with this post, although I’m not sure about the free trial, I couldn’t agree more about ads.

I don’t know if it’s a UK thing or not.
Even before I had K+, I never had problems with ads.
Before games, I’d sometimes get an ad with a skip button. Any annoying banner ads could be reported through email.

Why was I lucky? :/

Kongregate, your turning into gamestop. Im sorry, but $30 just for the chat rooms, crappy skins, and faster help for support we should already get? Sorry, but you all really just dropped from respect. If you needed money, you could have done other things, idk, lower the price of kong creds, or something. I loved kongregate because the only way you guys ever asked for money, would be from the adds and kong creds, which are simply given to developers for the most part, and you guys keep a small profit, which is amazing. But, i bet gamestop has something to do with the whole kongregate Plus, since power up rewards are included into this, 2x the points? really? each day is about 10 points average.. 20 wont do much a difference. I love your games and the way you ran things. I agree with ElBandito81 , even if he rejects his words, they are very much true. We can tell the only reason he ‘apologized’ was because you probably threatened to take his games off kong, or something. Ban my account, i really dont care, you guys are turning online gaming, into a complete joke. Mark my words, this is just stupid. instead of wasting my cash on this, why dont i pay $30 more bucks on my xbox, where there are LEGIT games. Shoot, i could even get some microsoft points, or even pay for netflix. Hows that? My apologies to any and all developers. I know how hard you guys work to make the games, and most of you actually get paid, so, my congrats and sincere apologies. And kongregate, if you really need the money, make it worth it the $30, cus if your on google chrome, you can use add blocker. Look it up on google, (works on many sites like youtube and stuff too)

Think im done here. and just again, my apologies if i was harsh on any developers, i was just trying to make a point against this stupid april fools joke.

Best of luck kong, you really lost my respect, and many other videogames out there.

If they offer too much people would complain k+ people get too many good features. It’s more like a donation to get a few bonuses on your favourite site.

Lowering price =/= more money.

Admins already explained why kong plus was decided on. It doesn’t affect you and has minimal features so why care?

He apologized since he was being rude. There is no reason to ban you or “threaten to remove his games”.

No one is forcing you to pay for it. Why do you care so much if it offers nothing? Your kongregate experience shouldn’t be affected if something with minimal features is introduced. You’re saying that as if kong is requiring people to pay to access the site. Go buy netflix or whatever, no one is saying otherwise. The whole point of it not offering much is so people don’t complain you need it for all the awesome updates kong could have had.

There must always be someone to catch everyone where they didnt see it coming. Alright. Point taken. And I do apologize myself. I did go way over the line. And your right, its not affecting it much, if anything at all.

29.99 is too much they need to reduce it to 19.99

Why are the language filters still applied in private rooms?

What, you’ve never heard of “boiling the frog”?

You can expect Kong to offer K+ (perhaps minus one feature no one cares about as “K+ Lite”) for $4.99 within six months.

Of course, KongStop will then learn that the problem doesn’t so much come from the actual price, as the deeper principle of paying for a FREE gaming site in the first place. I’ll pay content producers; I’ll give Kong a pass in my AdBlock rules so they can pay the electric bill. But damn my eyes if I’ll pay for a site that hosts its own community’s freely uploaded content.

Despite your private chatroom is literally private and open only for people who got the invite, using strong cuss words or harassing other users is still against conduct guidelines

Nobody wants to get insulted

It’s not about rooms inpublicity, it’s about behavioral rules

I’d be interested to see how many people have actually bought K+ so far.
Could I hear a specific number? :)

Also interested in how many people got it for free. ;)

I’m curious about this as well, but for now, I am going to take a guess at about 1000-1500 buyers.

Guess what I`m not buying…

Though it has nothing to do with feeling like I am being ripped off it`s more like I can’t afford it now.

I posted this in the suggestion thread, but I’m going to put it here as well, because it’d be really nice. I currently use my private room for my friends in AI. It’s really, really tedious inviting them, because you can only do it from the friend screen or if they’re in the same room as you. So, a few suggested modifications:

1. Allow someone to show up on the ’Friend’s Online’ list if they’re in a game room only.
2. To bypass 1 completely, allow an auto-rejoin or a ‘guest list’ for rooms.
3. Please don’t close private rooms during maintenance.

You can also use the “/invite username” chat command, PsychoticGnome, if you aren’t already.
It works regardless of which room you and the invitee are in, and you don’t need to have them friended.

That might help somewhat, until the system has been improved.

I was not aware of that command. That makes things much easier, thank-you. It was annoying having to friend all these people and mess around with invites.

No suggestion page. So I guess I will spill it here.

Kongregate plus memberships should have more
perks. What happened to playing beta test
games for kreds?

No weekly challenges just for kong+ users?
What about a chance to get kred discounts?

No chance to get free kreds? A Kong cap or T-shirt
just for being a Kong+ member?

I shoulda read the fine print.

There won’t be K+ exclusive stuff, like contests.

Yep, we don’t get the 50 kreds that comes with it, so a fair deal. :D
