Kongregate Name: Maks
Age: 28
Location: Milton Keynes, Middle Earth (England)
Online Gaming History: Whenever Half Life was released, more specifically, Team Fortress Classic – so 1999 to 2000 ish. I was on the highscores there too ;)
Gaming preference: I’ve always loved point and click adventure games, so anything like Broken Sword, Sam & Max and of course on Kong, the Re-incarnation series :) I do like C&C style strategy games as well.
How did you find out about Kongregate: I read a news article on a site (I can’t remember which) in 2007 which talked about the “Youtube of Gaming” which is what I always refer to Kongregate as. I started playing Fancy Pants and never looked back…

Well, that’s a little about me…I have also been to over 23 countries and speak 3 languages…but a Trekkie am I…

Topic: Kongregate / Win K+! [Awarded]

I think I deserve it due to the fact that I’m always on this page: http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/leaders . No, seriously, I’m one of those that has made this site happen. I support games, come here all the time and actually love you! Really, I do…

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Black Screen

Check that Flash Player is configured to allow unlimited storage on your machine (right click on the game window and click settings, then click the third icon at the bottom of the box that appears (the folder icon) and untick the box as well as changing the amount with the slider to unlimited (to the far right)). Then refresh the page and the game should load ok.

It wasn’t fully thought through, they rushed it out, and Kong didn’t bother to check that this product with a high monetary value is compatible with their site’s currency. I have messaged Kong regarding this, as I don’t seem to be getting any real answers here.

Let’s say you walk into a shop and there’s an advert that says $199 for this product and when you go to pay, the only way of paying is with 199 of the local currency as they don’t have the option of paying in $, you would expect them to put up the exchange rate to the local currency on the advert or advise you at the till. It’s common decency and the customer code which is applicable everywhere.

And again:

This shows that the value is $199 where $ is representing cash

When I add cash to the system, I receive this screen:

Either the LoA team or the Kong team haven’t updated the game/their system to be in line with the game system.

You CANNOT advertise a monetary product with a numerical value when that value is available as another currency. It would have been a lot less deceiving if one of their programmers or one of Kong’s staff members would have actually come to some agreement about the special offers, i.e. put the bloody USD amount in brackets when playing from the Kong servers. Is it really that hard to communicate? If it were non-monetary, I’d understand, but both LoA and Kong are making money from this, so the customer protection act comes into force.

It doesn’t make any difference to the fact that there has been misleading advertising on the Kongregate site (via this game). The game could be accused of racism due to excluding people from non $ using countries such as mine. When you advertise a product with a value of 199 and people purchase the only available value of 199 (like I did), they should be given the product advertised for 199.

I have added 199 cash to my account – you have advertised the product as 199 for a hero – look:

This shows that the value is $199 where $ is representing cash

When I add cash to the system, I receive this screen:

This screen shows only one value of 199 – as this is the ONLY value of 199 that there is, I have purchased the item, under the false pretences that I would receive said item. You are breaking trading standards laws and I would like some recompense.

n.b. I added the said amount on or around the 31st October as it was tied in with Halloween, so it had not expired when I purchased it.

Topic: Battle Dawn / New Space World Beta

On a server note, I have the same login name as I do on Kong BD. However, I can only load the space era if the Kong one is not open, if not, I get a server under maintenance error message. I can access it, if I load up the space beta and the era first and when that’s open, then open the Kong BD page.

Topic: Battle Dawn / New Space World Beta

I tend to get lag when there are too many ops built in one place – e.g. Earth 2 in North America – there are a load of ops all built together and my FPS drops down to 1-2fps.

I’m running an hp pavillion laptop with 2GB RAM, Turion X2 TL-58 (1.9GHz), Geforce 7150m (integrated GPU). On my parent’s old Athlon 2200XP with a Geforce 4Ti4400 it is almost unplayable.

Knowing that flash relies heavily on the CPU more than anything else, is there anything that can be done to make BD less CPU intensive? I would like to see a quality selector. Most other games have got them and they can help those of us without high-end machines.

Topic: Technical Support / Collabs not working

For some reason, I’m getting a Kongregate Error page when I try to visit the Collabs.

I’ve tried with another browser (cleared cookies/temp files, etc), but it’s still not working.

I’m getting the following error:

“We’re sorry, an error has occurred.We’ve been automatically notified of the problem, but if it keeps occurring, please email feedback@kongregate.com.

Topic: Kongregate / Modship

I have always like Adventure Games (graphic adventure/point and click)…The channel was set up for people who liked Adventure games, and had an older population (KoR’s room description even said so) and was well, nice for those of us who are in our 20s and remember the old games.

In response to the original topic, I have no quarms about people from the age of 13+ being mods.

KoR getting de-modded and the AC incident happened, what? 2 months ago? it’s fully understandable having the room go like that wasn’t a pleasant thing to experience, but that’s no excuse for insulting Mythica – and by extension Mythica’s regulars. it wasn’t the name that made AC great – it was the people there. having a “cheap funfair sounding fortune telling room” doesn’t change anything. KoR is missed, but you can’t change what’s already happened. time to move on Maks, and put the past behind you.

I wasn’t talking about the regulars, I was talking about the bloody name which sounds like, and I quote “a cheap funfair sounding fortune telling room”

If you’re looking for the word “what” it’s “por que” with a space. If you put “Proque” it means “what”..
