What does this mean for me? You will always be able to play your favorite games on Kongregate. However, certain site features may suddenly stop working and leave you with a severely degraded experience.
What should I do? We strongly urge all our users to upgrade to modern browsers for a better experience and improved security.
We suggest you install the latest version of one of these browsers:
The AS Date class is nice and all… but I need some way to determine a standardized date for all users. The Date class derives the time from the computer the swf file is running on, so if I manually set my computer’s clock to 1:00p.m and you set yours to 3:00p.m. we will both get unique times, even if we are playing at the same time.
The only solution I can think of is to request a Date object from the Kong server, which will give the same date to every user.
Yeah, but generally thats fine, unless you are concerned about some sort of cheating regarding date accuracy. You can probably use UTC time in the Date object if you are just looking for something consistent.
If you have a web host, you can easily upload a php script that will return the date and tie into that with your game. Otherwise, I don’t believe Kongregate has any API calls that send back the date (could be wrong). If I see anything like that, I’ll post it.
