Sadly, Sola Rola, I don’t know why, stop working for everyone. If I find one working version of the game, I’ll make the script to work also with this game…
If someone finds a playable Sola Rola version, please, post the url here or whisper me.

I’m fairly certain that Sola Rola is completely dead and that a working version doesn’t exist (unless someone downloaded it at some point in the past and has it on their computer). The host site, Gimme5Games, doesn’t even have it listed as a game on the site anymore, and although you can get to the game on their site right here, you can see by the comments that it hasn’t been available for well over a year there, as there haven’t been any comments on it is a long time.

Then I reformulate the question… Does someone have the working Sola Rola .swf?

Alright it’s official, their are way too many broken badges on the site. I guess we just have to wait until someone finally cares enough to fix them though.

there are only 3 games that you cant get the badges for any more, as it was stated before having to take the screen shot can be a little tedious, but its not an impossible task,

of the 3 fully broken ones one is down due to copy write issues, one is only down here and still available elsewhere so could be fixed the 3rd, Sola Rola, who knows

still wondering if we will ever see anyone with answers in here again, maybe an email off too support to see if we can have greg or rawismojo to poke there heads back in again

We’re keeping an eye on the thread, even if we’re not posting. Some devs are either completely unresponsive (for one reason or another) and some are slow to work on issues with old games due to having their efforts on newer games or projects. We’re reaching out to the devs with the games that have issues, but can’t rightly give an ETA or even assurance that something will come of it at all due to the nature of this.

thanks, its nice to know,

is there a plan in place or any idea what will happen if no fix happens? or if a dev does come back and say it wont be fixed?

I posted that to revive the thread and emphasize the fact that Kong is, in fact, lazy as fuck for some matters.

Zening has no problems with servers, just a low player base.

Also, with Zening, don’t the multiplayer missions default to single player if there isn’t another person to play with/against? That’s not a big deal on Chapter 3 because it’s head-to-head. Actually it’s both more and less of a deal on Chapter 4. The units that would be controlled by other players are controlled by the AI instead, but their actions are 100% predictable. If you do the same three opening moves every time, the board will look exactly the same every time. So if you’re so inclined, there are Youtube videos of the actions to take when it’s single-player in Chapter 4 that will help you beat the game.

Of course this is the way I’m remembering it from around when it got badges, I was annoyed after all the frustration I suffered in getting the badges that there were walkthroughs. I don’t know if the game has been changed in that regard at all since then.

Could I please just have a straight answer of why the Caesary badges can’t just be removed from the site? The game isn’t available anymore, just clear out the existing badges and remove them from the database. It’s a shame for the people that spent time trying to earn them, but it’s a much greater shame for all of the new users that have these literally impossible badges from the start of the site.

 
Flag Post

If I recall correctly, the reason was because they didn’t want to remove them for people that have already earned them. And at the very start, there were people that were close to the badge that were allowed to appeal to the admins and potentially be awarded the badge. I guess they see no reason to remove the badges because it would likely piss off more people than it pisses off by not removing them.

I got them all and I wouldn’t mind if they were removed; it would be fair.

About the devs that aren’t responding, those badges should be removed as well. They’re getting free money from games that don’t even work in some cases.

Yes, some people may get annoyed because of that, but in the long run it will be the best option. Think about the ammount of regulars that the site will have in let’s say 3 years. The more you wait to remove the badges (or even the whole game for those that don’t even load), the easier it will be.

Hell, there are almost 2000 badges. What if they remove 10 or 15? It’s completely irrelevant and it would make it fair for all the new players that registered after any of those games stopped working.

So why was it ok to remove the Prince of Persia badges but not the Caesary ones? When the PoP badges got removed the people who had earned them still kept the points, so it shouldn’t negatively affect anyone.

If I remember correctly, the intial reasoning for keeping the badges was in case the game ever returned. Since it’s basically confirmed there’s no chance the game is ever coming back, there’s really no reason to keep the badges anymore.

 
Flag Post

As far as I can see from the forum posts at the time, PoP badges were removed 1 or 2 days after they were given on the grounds that a very vocal (not neccessarily large and vocal) group thought the game should never have had them.

Crossposting from the recent Nerdook thread:

Still don’t understand why Bible Fight kept its badges after massively huge complaints thread that was eventually deleted for controversy, since Prince of Persia had its badges removed after relatively piddly complaints that took some searching to find beyond the comments box by the next day.

Well, it also didn’t help that the rating plummeted from ~3.7 to <3 in a matter of hours. So it wasn’t just a vocal minority.

Can someone confirm if P.O.D. is broken? I played it through, beat the final boss, but then nothing spawned at all and I didn’t get the badge, so I had to error report. This is what I saw and what I sent in the error report:

edit: There are also no weekly scores at all this week, as opposed to the other really old badged games I’ve played recently that still have people getting scores everyday.

This script, made by resterman should fix the problem

It doesn’t even submit stats… nice fix!

Thanks.

Just a note; I’m only collecting broken games having so severe flaws it might make earning badges in broken games very difficult or utterly impossible, not the games where you could use their inner gliches to speed up your process (take stormwinds and Crunchball 3000 for example). I excluded sonny and rotazion out of this rule because both of the gliched badges are hard and you’ll get them in few minutes by exploiting and abusing these gliches

I knew I should have inserted a note about the issue that game does not track your stats

Oh well, that problem is fix’d now
