Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Why are people anoyed over premium?

I don’t mind paying five dollars for a game that I like. That is, I don’t mind going to a shop and pulling out Mr. Lincoln. However, this does not have the anonymity of cash. And I do think that the game should only be advertizing the premium features under a button called, say, “What does premium get me?” rather than “try for this amulet, oops, no it requires premium.”

Another consideration is this. I don’t think that Kongregate badges should be easier for those who have spent priviledge money. In other words, a badge should only work if premium content that affects gameplay is disabled.

Topic: Kongregate / Chat/Game Page Redesign -Now Launched!

You really shouldn’t lock people into a “chat” that breaks the whole system. The old method at least worked. No matter how much you say it will be fixed “soon,” when you decree that you will not support the functional system (at least until the bugs are worked out in the new system) you may as well say “if it takes us 20 years to fix this, you will wait 20 years until you can play our games again.” Please, let us have something that works.

Arcane coder:

I would suggest that leaving performance issues aside is not really appropriate to this. You may be able to see what it will (hopefully, eventually) look like. But people’s tastes differ anyway. I’m sure that there are people that prefer the old style. As the saying goes, there is no accounting for taste. But how would you react if someone tried to sell you a car with no engine, telling you that, performance issues aside, it was the best car on the market. If were part of the people repairing the interface, I could look past the errors to see the “goal product.” But the chat never meant much to me. The “goal product” holds no interest (for me.) So the only issues I see are the performance ones.

Will there be a way to turn off the “new chat feature”? You know, so the games will actually load instead of turning the browser into a “This program is not responding” state? I mean, I have nothing against the eye candy. But I used to be able to play the games. Now, if I try to load a game, it starts loading, turns into an hourglass, and I have one dead window.
