Topic: General Gaming / Saving Via Kongregate vs Computer

How many games actually save to your kongregate profile as opposed to your IP Adress? Many of the fun games i like (mostly strategy, tactics, tower D, that sort) save to the computer, and not my account. Which makes me mad cuz i do a lot of Kong at the library, but if i wanna do it at home on my laptop i have to redo my stuffs.

DO YOU REALIZE HOW PAINFUL THAT IS FOR GAMES LIKE GEMCRAFT OR MUD AND BLOOD TWO!

Solutions? Recommendations? Life lessons? Money?
All welcome.

Topic: Game Design / I am a game designer. Ask me anything!

Just curious, how old are you?
You say you started creating games at 19, working for Kong, then GameLoft, now Indie, but how much time did it take you to get where you are now. What is your life-style like right now making 15k+ a year?

Currently in High School, fiddling with Java/HTML/CSS for websites and games coding. (I would like to be on it more but its as if my parents actually want me to have a life now. Ugg. Much better sitting in front of computer 17+ hours a day. jk.)
I know for a fact i am going to college and have some form of degree in game design (with cyber security or GIS as back up).
The estimate for doing all the things i want to do is about 4-6 years in college. Hopefully I’ll have enough scholarships/ grants to offset any potential loans.

How do you feel getting an official education would / would have affected your life and or income?
Do you think going for a major company after college would prove beneficial to someone like me (your reports of having to appeal to those higher up in the chain is unappealing), or would going solo or small team be better. Going solo/small SOUNDS better, however, i wouldnt want to waste a college education if i could make oodlez more cash… hmm…. how to phrase this…

Is there a way to balance the worth of a college education with the desire to more or less create what i want to create and get paid WELL for it?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] Map Specific Strategies

Im creating a thread for players to discuss and bash strategies for specific maps. And only the balanced ones. Maps like Naval Academy and Unfinished which have balancing issues arent to be discussed.

Only the ‘best’ maps are to be discussed. Meaning:
the balanced ranked maps,
Hottest w/ Air (personal fav)
Other maps i cant think of right now
etc.

Please, Do not post strategies for maps that are not generally accepted to be ‘good’.

Try to be very detailed in your strategies as just saying something like
*buy mammoth
*buy condor
*win
or something like that isnt very proffesional or help. Good luck. Happy Hunting _

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] Expert Combat Strategies

the most important support for any land based army are vultures. Just 1 vulture ultimately changes the shape of your army from damaging, to killing. the only unit that stands a chance against them are raptors (flax can not keep up with vultures). So then you need to be sure to eliminate air to air, or protect your vulture with ground to air, or heavy armor, or logistics (space)

Topic: Mud and Blood 2 / M&B 2 patch idea

Construction:

Foxhole.
Acts as a small trench. Holds 1-2 people.
Better protection against grenades. Soldiers get slower fire rate though.
Cost 1 tp.

Just looks like a small brown crater.

Any thoughts?

Topic: Mud and Blood 2 / does water in pits make a difference?

water pits, not mortar pits. the little holes that spawn on the field that sometimes have water in em.

Topic: Mud and Blood 2 / does water in pits make a difference?

when i put men in those water pits , they dont fire as often. do those water pits give greater protection or are they just bad?

Topic: Mud and Blood 2 / Smurph's Guide to the Standard Deployment

thx, smurph this guide really helped alot. i was able to get to wave 75 (average is 50+).

The only thing that did me over was 2 count’em 2 bradenburg blitzes. The second one took out my 100 xp spec ops w/ 117 rifle. and my BAR soldier w/ 70 xp and 50+ rifle. I think what screwed me over was the fact that i still had my spec ops in the bunker. i couldn’t fit anymore units into my camo net.

Total Units:
4 soldiers.
( 2 were in top trench w/ shottys. died in the 30s in the first blitz )
( the other 2 were in the camo. one had huge rifle and a bar. the other…. i forgot about him)
2 snipers
(both were in the camo. score serveral good shots, though didn’t rank up as much as the spec ops. especially usefull when dealing w/ mortars. Both lasted till the end game)
2 engineers ( why two? because 1 came in a crate for some reason. =__=…)(they deployed 2 barbwire by the top trench, a trench under the camo, 3 sandbags in front of the camo trench. [during the first blitz] and a bunker in the far right middle . half a screen under the top trench)
2 bazookas. ( 1 score several hits against bikes, trucks, the halfback w/ a turret, and bunches o dudes. The other died 4 seconds after he was called)
1 medic
1 officer. ( Gave the strong spec ops heroism 3 times. lol. he lasted till # 70 )

Topic: Mud and Blood 2 / Most messed up moment

for me, my most messed up moment was when a german artillery piece came out on wave 4 and just owned my men before i could advance 1/5 of the stage up

Topic: Mud and Blood 2 / Mud and blood 2 tactics

i always add a gunner in the beggining.. at about wave 30, if he hasnt died, hell start shooting multiple target.
around wave 50, he should have 100xp, and become overpowering….. have him in a bunker though bcus the rare german sniper will have a field day with this one
