MOD EDIT: Please stop reporting this thread as a violation. An admin already blessed this fix as “unofficial”. As long as users back up their HOSTS file, there shouldn’t be an issue. There is no deleting being put forth in the fix either.

Was asked to include the info on how to flush your dns too here: go to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt then in the black screen type ipconfig /flushdns

edit: some of the ips have changed since then, not sure if s10 and s7 are correct but here’s the most current list I have as of Nov 21 2014:

FWIW, we (Kongregate) are not officially condoning this fix, nor have we verified the data as accurate. The DNS issues should be solved now, but may take some time to fully propagate. Change your hosts file at your own risk.

just to share what i did… i started with Yras’ hosts solution, it mostly worked, i managed to get in game… but i got annoyed by how the top bar didn’t load (along with the brown border) so i tried Green’s flushdns on top of it and… clicked refresh.

boom, stuck on a black screen now lol!

i think it’s not wise to merge the two solutions… somewhere it messes up i think? hope a techie could comment.

p.s.: someone mentioned clearing cache, so i did THAT as well now :P triple solution.

@Yras, i think we also need the IP for cdn.r2games.com… it showed up in my Chrome Javascript Console.

and for those deathly afraid of messing up, just avoid the techie solution! this is mostly TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

‘hosts’ file (no extension) should be in ‘C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\’ for most people (it was for me).

How do you do this on Windows 8?

glad i didnt log out last night im able to play just fine. However, I’m just curious is this being done by someone deliberately? mayb to gain more event seeds? just seems to happen when ppl are rdy to harvest the event seed after overnight planting.
Altho I’m not complaining as i got like 100 seeds free past 2 days =)

Well if this is as fixed as this game gets im calling Kong Monday and demanding a refund of kreds I cant use in a broken game ….

 
Flag Post

Good luck with that, Corizon. Kong, like most online game providers, will most probably just give you the finger.

 
Flag Post

They dont usually give me that reaction and it never hurts to complain :)

Let me know how it goes. I would like my kreds back so that I can spend it on a more worthy game instead of this laggy PoS.

One reminder, when everything gets fixed, remove those values. You wont know when they change their IPs.

THis Fix Does work If you Do not know how to replace your Hosts File Use this guide from Microsoft. It tells you How to Reset your Hosts File. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034 My suggestion is to Refresh the hosts file First.
THen Edit it with the info in the first post

Hard saved this page. Could be vital if kong or wartune go down again.
