Asking Kongregate to provide storage for all games for everyone is unrealistic, and likewise it’s unrealistic to ask developers to provide storage for users forever, unless we want more Starfighter: Disputed Galaxy incidents (game gets removed because the developer stopped hosting the save data). It’s be terabytes upon terabytes of storage that Kongregate would have to provide for everyone to have ample space, and as more games are added and more users sign up, this would just increase exponentially. So local saving is sort of the way it has to be, except for multiplayer games where they provide their own server space.

Save data is stored on your computer in the kongregate.com and chat.kongregate.com folders (I think Chrome has some different spot though), so you can back it up before wiping your cookies if you would like to make sure that it’s not lost. Depending on your OS the folder locations are slightly different, but it’s something like the Macromedia\FlashPlayer\#SharedObjects\\ region, so if you can navigate to there you can find it. Alternatively, whatever program you’re using to clear your cookies you can just configure to leave Kongregate alone.

My idea was mainly for the smaller games (many of the puzzle games for example), where the only variables that would have to be saved would be the player and the level, maybe the amount of lives left if this is a factor. I realize that this might be costly for the larger games where the amount of information to be saved for each player might be quite large, though I have also heard that storage costs these days are relatively low, and getting much lower every passing year… Maybe Kongregate could exchange ad space for storage space with reputable companies.

Regarding myself, I am using a Mac, and can’t seem to locate the relevant folders, let alone figure out which lines are the save files within the folders…

Edit: I found library/internet Plug-ins/Flash Player.plugin and library/internet Plug-ins/flashplayer.xpt, but don’t know if those are the correct files, or what to do with them if they are…

My idea is making real prizes for people which have 300+ badges!

In the grand scheme of things, 300 badges isn’t that much anymore (there are over 2,000 more if you count mobile ones as well). Also, if by “real” prizes you mean real life prizes, that won’t be happening regardless, and especially for hard-coded goals, since getting 300 might have been hard a few years ago, but now it’s trivial.

Can you please have more than just “TrialPay”? They don’t have a lot of offers that I can complete. The surveys never works and the download offers requires Ipad or something other that I don’t have.

There are lots of games on kong that i can’t play because i don’t have unity 3D thing. There should be non-unity versions of unity games.

You can just go install Unity like any other plug-in that you need to play games. Also, it’s up to the developers whether they want to make a game on multiple platforms, which they generally won’t

Ok, is that a joke. . . .???? It is a joke… right?

You definitely shouldn’t call people out publicly, so saying their name isn’t a great idea. They might be getting warnings in private, so you never know if they’re just continuing because they don’t care and then eventually there will be consequences, or what’s going to happen, but I’d say to just continue to flag the posts and report them, since that’s the best way to handle the situation.

If you have a problem with a user, report them. Never mention them publicly.

Just report him and say when and where he said it. Screenshots are not accepted as proof, and the administration has chat logs, so they can see for themselves.

My apoligies if this has been said, but there should be a list of how many achievements a certain game has in the quick-search bar and/or the search results page.

Not sure if this has been said or not, but that sounds awesome. I’ve been hunting for achievements a lot lately. +1 Support.

Suggestion
1. Their could be different colours when you are PMing a friend like lets say viper300 is red and john24 is green, if you want you can change your friends colours from red to violet and make strips like blue and red.

2.Keeping tokens, you can have 1-3 or 1-4 and you can decide which one you want.

thank you for reading.

Sounds good, although changing the colour of your friends isn’t really necessary.

Just get rid of the minimum age of 13. It is making you lose many young players, and it is also useless since smart kids give wrong birth dates. To be honest, I was 12.5 years old when I became a member of Kongregate. (14 now)

A “lite” site version for slow internet connections would be fantastic.

1. I thought about the above Idea about changing the colors in chat… I think that it is nice that your own name shows up red in chat and everyone shows up as blue… I think it would be nice if all of your friends would show up as green or something… just one other separate color for friends in the chat… I think it isn’t really necessary though.

2. I think it would be cool if Kongregate would have a site clock of some sort… It really doesn’t matter to me what time zone it would be based off of… But I think it would make it easier than saying your time zone when you report someone ect… I also hate when someone says “I’ll be back at 2” or something cause they don’t realize not everybody is in their time zone…

Something like a /kongtime command to get the server’s time? That could be useful.

Just a suggestion I know I would enjoy more TD!

Developers upload games to Kongregate themselves, Kongregate doesn’t go out and get games themselves (though I believe they have asked developers to upload specific games before). If you’re a fan of some of those games, you could try emailing the developers to ask them about uploading them here.
