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:
Why can’t .exe files be uploaded? I made several awesome games that I wanted to post on Kongregate, but I can not find a way to convert the files. I read in the FAQs that .exe files, like in Game Maker. I use GameMaker:Studio, and it uses .exe files. I want .exe files to be accepted here on Kongregate. I want a reason why they don’t work, if Kongregate doesn’t accept them. If you want .exe files to be accepted on Kongregate, please comment.
This question has been asked a few times already. Kongregate provides support for web-playable formats, which doesn’t include exe yet (maybe [native client](http://www.chromium.org/nativeclient/design-documents/native-client-in-chrome-on-64-bit-windows)?). In order to upload a game on Kongregate you need to use one of these formats. Supported files/software that I am aware of are: Flash, Unity, Java, HTML5, and Silverlight.
I do not believe there will be any plans to change this in the near future. The biggest hope for games written in C/C++ is the [Native API](http://developers.kongregate.com/docs/api-overview/native-api) (which is not the same as Native Client as mentioned earlier in this post), which is reserved for high quality desktop games.
