How to Take a Screenshot (Mac + PC)

This tutorial will tell you how to take a screenshot on your computer (for reporting a missing badge or for submitting pictures for Kongregate tournaments).

MAC:
To take a screenshot on a mac, you can do one of the following:

To take a picture of your whole screen, press Command() + Shift + 3. This will save a picture of your screen as a file on your desktop.

To take a picture of part of your screen, press Command() + Shift + 4. Drag the cursor around the part of your screen you want to capture. This will appear as a box or rectangle.

WINDOWS:

1) Press the Print Screen button on the keyboard. This will capture the screen and place it on the clipboard. Hold down the ALT key before pressing the Print Screen button to confine the screen shot to the foremost window.

2) Create a new image file in Photoshop or Elements to paste in the screen shot you have collected on the clipboard. Elements Users: Choose File>New>Image From Clipboard. Photoshop Users: Choose File>New. A New Image dialog will appear with the dimensions of the screen shot in the clipboard. Click OK on this dialog and then press Ctrl+V to paste.

3) Save the image.


UPLOADING THE IMAGES

To upload the images onto the internet, you can use many sites. The most popular are photobucket and imageshack. Personally, I use ImageShack, so I will demonstrate using that website.

1) Go to www.imageshack.us/

2) A form will appear:



3) Click on Choose File. Find the file and click open to have the image placed there. It will look like this:


*YOU DO NOT NEED TO INSERT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!!

4) At the bottom of the form, click Host It!

5) An ad for Yahoo! Hotjobs might pop up. Close this window.

6) You will get your image URLs listed:



7) Ignore those. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click show on the last option:



8) On your next page, you will see your image to the right. Click on it.

9) Your image should be full screen now. Copy the URL in the address bar.

10) Go to whatever thread you are making and post the URL with exclamation marks around it:



11) Submit your post. The line of code with the exclamation marks will turn your URL into a picture.

Chatroom Interface

Chat Actions and General Information


  1. The chat does not have a mute all feature. If you wish to ignore the chat, turn to another tab. After a few patches, the chat will be lag free, meaning that a mute all will not be necessary as long as you change tabs.
  2. In the list of names, you will see the names appear in the order of You > Admin/Friends > Mods/Friends > Admin > Mod > Friends > Players > Silenced > Guests.
  3. Friends have a little person icon next to their names.
  4. Alt codes do not work in this chat.

    Connection



    If you are connected to the chat, you should see a green plug. If not, you will see a red one:


    If your chat light is red, the game either does not have API or you need to refresh your page due to a connection failure.

    For your convenience, the chat actions tab has been moved to the upper right corner of the chat screen.



    Chat Action Options



    There are currently 4 chat options.



    The Chat Action options change when you can enter a game chat. Switch to game chat and Switch to room chat are put into the list. Use these to switch between chats. Please be aware that you can not favorite a game chat:
    Normal room:

    Game chat:


    Changing Chatrooms



    Select this option to change your chatroom. This window will pop up in place of chat:



    Here you can see the room, how many people are in it, and which rooms you have recently been to and which ones you have favorited. Click on a room to go to that room. You can also sort the rooms by language on the bottom:



    See Friends Online



    Select this option to see your online friends:

    Click on the room next to that person’s name to go into the same chatroom as they are in. You can scroll to the next page of friends by clicking the numbers on the bottom.

    View Room Details



    Select this option to view information about the room. It is highly recommended you read this as certain room owners might post the room forum link (if the room has one), some kind of puzzle or game, and other important information and links in there.



    Here you can find information about the room owner. Currently, this room does not have any information filled in. The room is The Inconspicuous Cardboard Box. The room owner is Mostly_Harmless.

    Favorite This Room



    The final option is to favorite a room. Click on the one that says “favorite this room”:



    It will be added to your top room list. To remove a room from your list, select “Remove from favorites”:



    Chat Tabs



    With the new chat comes new tab functionality. The new chat has five basic tabs.

The first tab is the “chat” tab. Pretty self explanatory:



The second tab is the “game” tab. Here, you will find information about the developer and the game, the tip jar, and the instructions:



The third tab is the “achievement” tab. You will find the game’s badges and cards here. You can also report a missing achievement from this page:


Scores can also be found on this page. If there is a badge, you can click the “scores” option on the Quick Links bar above the chat.

Sometimes a fourth tab will appear. This is an alert tab. This appears when you get disconnected from chat. Your plug will turn red. Scores will not be submitted and badges will not be rewarded until you are reconnected.



The fifth tab possibility occurs when you win a badge or card. When you earn an achievement, sometimes the game will give you milestones to achieve. They will not provide you with badges, but they help with the motivational aspect of the game:



Quick Links



Quick links appear at the top of the game page.



Clicking on each link will automatically take you to the appropriate tab.

Instructions


Rate

In this tab, you can also see who created the game, you can add the game to your favorites, you can report a game bug, or you can flag the game as inappropriate.
Please to not flag a game if it conflicts with your personal beliefs. This feature should only be used if the game includes content that is against the code of conduct including pornographic images, stolen games, or contains racial content.

Favorite Game (Clicking on this link will automatically favorite the game for you)


Tip Jar (kreds required)


Scores (If there are any. If there aren’t, it will display as a solid screen as shown below)


Share

On this tab, it gives you the option to post a link on any of the above mentioned websites. Your referral code is attached to the game link. From this tab, you can also send an email to a friend using the form provided. No email password is required, but you must insert a valid email address.

Game Description and OnPlayer Interface



As most of you noticed, the comments got a little flipped on the page. The comment system works the same way as it always did. Hit “add a comment” to..well..add a comment. Just make sure it is appropriate.



The game description got a makeover as well. You can now expand and retract the description to save page space.




You can still flag a game as inappropriate from this area. If a game is inappropriate, please flag it. Posting “Tis game iz stoln!! Remove it NAO!! U r a noob! Get a life!” will only make things worse and it might get YOU in trouble instead of the uploader.


OnPlayer Interface



The hover-over options have changed a little bit with this chat.


(With add friend option)

View Profile



When you click on View Profile, you can see the mini-profile of the person, their most recent badges, and their top 5 favorite games.




Add Friend



Self explanatory.

Private Message



Click this option to put the user’s name in the chat box. For example, if I hovered over Phoenix00017 ’s name and hit “private message”, this would appear in the text box:



Mute



Click this option to mute the player.

Ticket Challenges


Ticket Challenges
In case you are wondering what those tickets are wonder no more because I will be explaining them to you in
this tutorial. In this tutorial you will learn how to get tickets and what they do for you! The game that the ticket
challenge is for will always have a different background page than a regular game with no ticket challenge. The
background will be an image or a banner of the prize.
All you need to know about tickets
Tickets enter you in a raffle to win certain prizes, how exciting! Like card challenges ticket challenges appear on the
homepage in the "Featured Games" box.

1)To get a ticket you must complete the specific challenge. The ticket challenges are just like card challenges
except for the fact that there can be multiple games involved in the challenge.

2)There are messages that pop up in chat specifically for the ticket challenge, just like cards! There are four
messages that you can recieve. The first is a notification that there is a ticket challenge up and ready to go. This
message also states the date at which the ticket challenge will be . This message also includes when the challenge
will be discontinued . The second one tells you that you have just came closer to compleating a a requirement
for the ticket. The third message states that you have compleated one of the requirements for the ticket. The
fourth message tells you that you have beat the challenge and recieved the ticket.(This one is in the Ticket! tab)



3) The tickets you have achieved can be shown in your profile unless you choose not to have them displayed
on your public profile.

List of Tickets!

Left 4 Dead
Monster Lab
Pineapple Express
Warhammer
Halo Wars
Henry Hatsworth
Bigs 2

Huge thanks to EndlessSporadic on this – you (and whoever else helped with this – I imagine Razzi too?) deserve a lot of credit for making an excellent guide and compiling all into one useful thread. Well done!

Ok, I’m sorry – I don’t want to grammar Nazi on you, but that’s four times in two posts that you’ve done that, and this is hardly a minor nitpick or typo, so I don’t think it falls under the grammar Nazi flag. Let’s just call it quick grammar lesson (that lots of people need, it’s by no means just you):

“Of” is not a verb, it is a preposition.

If you’re not sure what a preposition is, you can learn that later, but here’s the important part: “Should of” and “would of” make no sense – you’re trying to say “Should have” or “would have”. When we speak it, it often comes out sounds like “of” because we get lazy with our enunciation, but when written it really doesn’t work. I’m not trying to chastise, just educate (and perhaps save you from losing some points on a school essay).

Yes yes. I’ve learnt in school about this multiple times. But when I live in a society where everybody says “could/would/should of”…instead of ‘have’. It has practically been implanted in my brain after 14 years on this earth. I will definitely try to remember this next time. But this is the same situation as “there their and they’re”. It’s not like you go through every post correcting them :P

You just have to understand that in average English intellect, most people will say it. Obviously that’s a fatal flaw in our way of speaking, but you need to understand that when I’m typing something I usually read it in my head. And as I usually think ‘could of’ is an acceptable phrase, then I would leave it like that.

I’m also sorry for that awfully structured sentence I wrote. Guess I was having an off day or something within that region. Just hope you understand.

 
Flag Post

Hey, no apologies needed – I was just trying to offer some information that it appeared you needed. In any case, I don’t want to get this thread any more off topic, so I’ll let it drop. Actually, I think I’ll create a new thread in the Serious Discussion forum about it – I’ll be curious to see if people think we should hold on to “have” or if the language should be permitted to shift and accept “of”. It’s an interesting question, really.

My only concern for you is that, for many people at least, using “of” makes it look like you don’t know what you’re doing. If you don’t care, that’s fine. :)

Introduction


Many of you are disappointed when your wonderfully created post is mashed into one, never-ending word wall all because your post has too many characters. Well you have to worry NO MORE- because this guide will show you everything you need to know about making your long post the way you want it!


The Basics


Most of you are aware of how to use the [bq.], [* & _], or [!] tags on your post for coding, but these methods of coding get disabled after your post reaches a certain character count. So, I’ll be first teaching you about popular Kongregate code, HTML style.


Quotes

Example:

Quotes look like this.

Here is how you normally quote somebody:

bq. Users post you're quoting

In HTML:

<blockquote> Users post you're quoting

</blockquote>

These methods aren’t completely necessary, since you can quote somebody by clicking “Quote Post” on the post you want to quote.




Bold and Italics


Example: Bold text looks like this.


Example: Italicized test looks like this.


Bold in Kongregate


*Important Text*


Bold in HTML


<b>Important Text</b>


Bold in HTML


<strong>Important Text</strong>


Italics on Kongregate


_Sarcasm Here_


Italics in HTML


<i>Sarcasm Here</i>


<em>Sarcasm Here</em>


<cite>Sarcasm Here</cite>




Underlined and Slashed Text


Example: Underlined text looks like this.


Example: Slashed text looks like this.


Underlined


+Text+


OR


<ins>Text</ins>


Slashed Text


-Text-


OR


<del>Text</del>




Images


Example: Image →


On Kongregate


!Image URL!


In HTML


<img src='Image URL'>


In HTML (To specify dimensions)


<img src='Image URL' width='Width in Pixels' height='Height in Pixels'/>




Images (That Link to a Website)


Example: Click on the image →


Links an image to any url.


<A HREF="URL"> <IMG SRC="URL of Image"></a>




Links


Example: Linked Text


To link to an on-the-web location.


On Kongregate


"Link text":url

In HTML


<a href="url">Link text</a>




Advanced & Extra




These are some extra and more advanced HTML codes that, when used wisely, can really come in handy. Includes important codes for long post.




Text Size


Very Small Text


<h6>Text</h6>


Small Text


<h5>Text</h5>


Normal Text


<h4>Text</h4>


Medium Text


<h3>Text</h3>


Large Text


<h1>Text</h1>


Extra Large Text


<h2>Text</h2>


Big/Small


Big Text


<big>Text</big>


Small Text


<small>Text</small>




Text Position


Example: Upper Text Regular Text Lower Text

Upper Half


^Text^


OR


<sup>Text</sup>


Bottom Half

Paragraphs/Divider


These are used to skip lines and create bodies of text.


Sample:


<p>This is your paragraph</p>


Divider Sample:


<p>This is some text.</p>
<hr />
<p>This is some text.</p>


Code Tags


Code tags are used to disable code in order to display coding.


@Phooltk@


<code>code here</.code>


(Remove the period)



Similarly, =,=‘s before and after text deactivate coding.


==*Bold*== will become *Bold*




“Gray Boxes”


Example:

 I’m in a box!


Puts a gray box around text, and changes text type.


<pre>In Gray Box</pre>

The comments section, located at the bottom right section of every game page, is the best way to express your opinion about the game you are playing. In this area you will find tons of comments;some nice and descriptive, and others short and blunt.

Today, I’ll be teaching you all about the art of game commenting. It may seem like a joke, but game comments mean a lot to the developer and the community members who read them. Here are some guidelines to posting comments:

_______________________________________________________________

Guidelines to Commenting:

1) Don’t post or join chain comments. This one is self-explanatory. If you see people posting chain comments, flag each and every one to eliminate the chain for good. Never post a chain comment. Please know that spamming, posting referrel comments, or chain messages will result in a silence in your account. You have been warned.

2) Nobody cares that you’re first. If you’re the first to play, help out by posting something meaningful, not some lame “FIRST!” comment.

3) Don’t post your score, or badge achievements. This is something that a lot of people fail to do. Don’t beat the game and post “203,253 on the first try! 8D” or get a badge and post “Dude! You just got the (Badge name) in (Game) and 30 points!”. This is totally unnecessary, and it’s spam to some degree.

4) Avoid conversations and arguments. If there’s one thing that annoys me the most it’s when people have full thrown fights and/or debates in the comments of somebodies wonderful game. If you disagree with somebody, flag the comment and move on; Don’t spend 20 comments telling them that they need to stop commenting, because you’re just as bad.

5) Never post short. What this means is, don’t leave one of those “i liek it 99999999/5” or “it suzx 0/10000” comments. Make sure your comments are filling to the readers, approx. 3-7 sentences. At least if you’re going to post a short comment, make it something relevant to the game or it’s developer.

6) Think about your rating choice before actually rating it. Go through the reasons in your head of why you’re rating it that rating. If the only reason you want to rate Sonny 1/5 is because there’s a minor glitch, then don’t do it. Or if the only reason you want to rate Kongai 5/5 is because the card art is good, also don’t do it. Make a brief list is your head about the pros and cons of the game; Include things like originality, gameplay, graphics, audio, replay value, and many others. When you’ve finally come to a decision (Will usually be between a 2-4, being all games have something good, and at least one flaw) post your comment with pride.

7) Explain your purpose for rating it what you did. Always elaborate on why you gave the game the rating you did. If you rated it a 1 or 2, then name a good thing following by all of the bad things that made you rate it what you did. If you gave it a good rating, then name all the good things you like, followed by a suggestion or “needs improvement” thing.

Time to get into good and bad comment formats!

_______________________________________________________________

Bad commenting:

You’ll tell it’s a bad comment IF:

It has one word.

It’s useless and spammy when you simply post “Awesome.” or “Lame!!!”. If you’re going to post your opinion of the game, at least give a reason or two supporting your opinion.

It doesn’t elaborate.

This goes along with only having one word; elaborate. Simply posting “Rox my sox, luv it 4ever, awesome!” doesn’t do anything for the developer or the members reading your comment. As far as we know, you just like the game. Adding reasons and some organization to the comment can easily fix this problem.

It asks a question.

The commenting area isn’t a chat room. If you need help in a game, the post first step is to ask help in the chat room. If nobody is able to help you, then either use the Kongregate search box or google to look for a guide on that game. If all fails, then post in the forums asking how they accomplished that task in the game. Be sure a thread isn’t already made showing you how to do what you’re having trouble with.

It’s totally off-topic.

Just like spamming in the forums, telling some story about your grandma’s cookies in the comments area of Sonny is considered spam. I’m sure you won’t receive a silence for telling an off-topic story, but your comment may get flagged and deleted. Simply keeping your post relevant to your point should solve this.

It corrects somebody else.

Correcting somebody in a game comment, whether is be spelling, grammar, or accuracy on information is considered spam. You’re posting in the comments to post your opinion on the game, not act like the grammar nazis.

It’s all caps.

NOBODY WANTS TO READ A COMMENT THAT IS ALL CAPITALIZED! It’s really annoying and inappropriate when commenting on games. Even if you follow all of the guidelines, making it all caps pretty much ruins the contents of your post. Ofcourse, there’s acceptations to this, such as if you capitalized a word or phrase for emphasis, but still use cation.

It’s cruel and blunt.

It’s pretty obnoxious to go around flaming games and their developers, just because you couldn’t get past the first level. Most comments like this are usually flagged and deleted.

It’s very similar to a cereal slogan.

As humorous as I found this reference, it’s totally off-topic and says nothing of the commenter’s opinion of viewpoint on the game.

It’s bragging.

Nobody cares much about you beating the game on your first shot. This is impressive if you’re telling your friends or chat room buddies, but posting it in the comments of a game is just wrong, unless you’re using it as evidence to why you think the game is too easy/short.

It’s advertising.

Spamming advertisements for any reason will result in the deletion of the comment with a possible silence alongside it. Solution to this is, don’t advertise.

Of course, these are just a few I noticed, you’ll find much more interesting ones on other game. ;)

Now, how to post good comments.

_______________________________________________________________

Good Commenting & YOU

- Good comments are between 2-7 Sentences.

- They elaborate on the pros and cons of the game.

- They have constructive criticism.

- They may or may not have a rating included.

- They follow the guidelines I posted.

The first three are the main ones, now lets look at some samples.

Comment on “Don’t Look Back” (Average; 3 sentences)

You’ll notice that I clearly stated some things I liked about the game as well as something that I disliked followed by my rating. Using descriptive words to be specific about what you liked is always a nice little bonus. Simple enough?

Comment on “Bunny Invasion 2” (Long; 5 sentences)

As you can see, I explained the things I liked in the beginning, providing a nice foundation for a comment. I then went into detail on suggestions for a possible sequel. Then, I ended by summarizing and giving my rating. It’s length could have been shortened a bit, but this is probably the approximate length of a descriptive/spread out comment.

Comment on “b.” (Extra Long; 7 sentences)

This was more of a constructive criticism and suggestion post, but I threw in the things that I enjoyed about it in the beginning, which reassures the developer that it’s not a bad game. You never want to simply post on how it’s horrible. Throwing in criticism is important to the developer (To fix any problems) and shows that you’ve played the game enough to come to that conclusion.

_______________________________________________________________

Well I hope this guide helped, and thanks for reading!

UNDER CONSTRUCTION, DISREGARD UNTIL COMPLETE

30 Levels in 4 Weeks: A Newcomer's Guide to Expertise

Introduction: Whether it be for placing yourself higher on the level tree, or simply for personal achievement- We all should want to level up. Now, many of you newcomers are probably asking yourself, "Well how exactly DO I level up?", or "Where should I start?". Well, the answer to both of those questions can be found in this guide, along with everything you need to become an epic level 30 in just 28 days!

I highly recommend you get acquainted with the following concepts before you proceed:

Badges, and Earning Points.


The Schedule:

Before you even proceed to follow your daily tasks in the schedule, let me explain some things first. To reach level 30, you need 5,510 points- Which is a LOT in the eyes of a person who has recently joined the site. Luckily, we have Kongregate's 50 pts per day for rating games. Yup, I'm serious- You get 1 pt each time you rate a game, and are allowed to rate a maximum of 50 games per day. Over the course of 28 days, that's 1,400 points- JUST from rating games! :o

Another great way to score some points is to rate art/music pieces in the collabs, as well as rating 10 user created 'contents' each week. You're allowed 10 ratings per week (For each), at 1 pt per rating. Over the course of 28 days, that's an additional 80 points for you. :D

Deducting the amount of points earned rating games, collab works, and user content from the amount we need in total to get to level 30- We now only have 4,030 pts to get from badges rather than 5,510. That seems like a pretty good deal to me, seeing that all what you're doing is spending a few extra minutes rating some stuff each day. If you go a step further, and divide 4,030 pts by the 4 weeks you'll be earning badges, that's an estimated 1,008 points each week- or about 144 points each day.

Please Note: The rating of 50 games, 10 collab pieces, and 10 user creations must be done on a regular basis for the total to come out as stated above.

Below is your weekly schedule for badges to get. I try to focus mainly on easy and medium badges, but you're free to go for the hard badges of course. I also list some alternative badges to get in case there's some that you just are unable to get. If you find yourself having trouble with the game, links to guides are also provided. (Some games may not have guides)

Tip: If you're finding yourself a few points short each week, play through a whole bunch of easy badges. They take maybe a minute to get, and award 5 pts at a time. Maybe even get some additions mediums.

If you're having trouble getting the correct amount of points for each week, spread out your goal more. Try getting the weekly amount of points over a 2 week time span instead. You'll still be level 30 in an impressive 2 months, and you'll be straining yourself much less to keep up.

RE: Bad formatting for comments – it asks a question. So am I not allowed to ask “there is no mute button why?” “why are the instructions only viewable once?” etc. They’re not bad, just criticizing the game in a different format. Might wanna outline that in there.
This 0-30 in 4 weeks guide looks good, looking forward to seeing it completed!

My tutorial was not filled with rules- just guidelines that I beleive should be followed for posting good game comments. Many people agree with me on them, but a few don’t such as yourself -Which is fine, since a “good comment” is totally based on opinion.

I find the general asking of a questions in a game comment to be unnecessary in most ways. If people are asking in a sarcastic way, it shouldn’t be posted. If people are posting it in a critism, which almost never happens, then it could be okay- it still depends on how you say the question (Ex. There’s a huge difference between “Like, why did you decided to make the ogres on level 50 so powerful?”, and “Why the fuck are these ogres so hard?”). A lot of times people ask a question expecting an actual answer, especially with the examples you provided. In that case, you still shouldn’t post the comment- You should contact the dev.

Thanks- I’m hoping on finishing it today, though it may take longer-
being that I’m trying to make the guide as accurate and easy-to-read as possible.

Another great way to score some points is to rate art/music pieces in the collabs each day. You’re allowed 10 ratings per day, at 1 pt per rating. Over the coarse of 28 days, that’s an additional 280 points for you. :D

You may only get 10 points per week from rating sound/music files, so you may want to change your leveling guide a bit. Also, I didn’t look too awful close, but if you didn’t mention it, you might want to add that you can also rate user-created levels in games with the sharing API for a maximum of 10 points per week, also. So all in all, you can earn up to 20 points per week from rating in the collabs and rating user-created levels. :)
