Badges was boring. Yawn. Just repeat the same strategy over and over again.

I’m farming challenge 15 because it’s got a pair of already upgraded heavy guns from the onset, and it pretty much plays itself until the very end, so it’s not too much of a headache to farm. However, not being able to check whether I’m even getting any of the heavy gun kills counted toward the achievement is really pissing me off.

From a technical standpoint, this is the worst medium badge I’ve seen in a long time.

The Blast Wave is specifically the heavy gun upgrade path #2. I don’t think challenge 15 gives you that type of gun. I did Challenge 14, using heavy gun to kill the troops and lightning for the air units. Upgrade heavy gun specifically. Once you get the branch, the lower upgrade path should have the text “Blast Wave”. Pick that. Use that gun on everything and try to survive. Once you get the achievement, you’re free to close the tab.

Battlecry was ok. The badges was easy to get, didn’t think too much about it.

Zombotron 2, though, was hell. I’m surprised the badge wasn’t a hard badge, although I suppose the fact that you could have unlimited revives may have made it too easy. It was definitely way harder than your average medium badge though, especially with how the game works. The fact that the game marks it as a ‘loss’ if you walked to the end of the capsule level without the capsule being destroyed was really annoying.

Finally decided to go and get the new badge from Socrates Jones. Felt that the medium should have been a hard, especially since it was essentially “complete the game”. Found it really hard at the first guy (after the tutorial deer repellent) and pretty much ended up bruteforcing all of the options then the challenges for him. It got easier after I got used to it, though, and got better at from the 2nd guy onwards. Note that I’ve never played Ace Attorney.

The story was decent and I enjoyed the dialogue from the 3rd guy onwards though, so it was pretty fun for me. Still think it should have been a hard.

So, new badge.

Game was OK, the book was very helpful in hinting on what to do when you got stuck as well. I got stuck after talking to the woman though, since I didn’t know what to do to move (tried clicking on the sides, everyone on the screen, no dice). 30 minutes later I realised you had to click on the map and then click on the location to move.

Got stuck again in the forest where I couldn’t find the squirrel, finally searched up the walkthrough on jayisgames for that. Other than that it was fine. Badge seems appropriate with 15 points, considering the book that pretty much tells you what to do.

You need to have greasemonkey installed for the script to work. Then you will see a pop-up asking you if you want to install the script.

Greasemonkey for Firefox
Greasemonkey for Chrome (Note: I don’t use chrome, so I’m not sure if this is correct or not. I just googled “Greasemonkey chrome” and chose the first link. This is called Tampermonkey.)

Topic: Kongregate / Petition: Bring back 50 comments per page

Yes please.
In my opinion the comment page just looks odd like this. I don’t really see any reason to have 10 instead of 50.
Perhaps have an option for users to choose? I know many other sites that allow you to choose to have 10, 20, 50 or 100 or whatever you want per page. (Not exactly comments per page, but more of searches and other stuff, but we could use that here)

Ooops… haha, yes I did.

What about the highscore stat though?

 Kongregate API: IHighScoreServices.submit(4330) 

This isn’t appearing in the highscores. Am I supposed to declare this as well?

Topic: Game Programming / API doesn't work online

Hey guys, I’m creating a flash game. I’ve implemented the API (correctly, I hope). When I run the game, here’s an example output shown in the box:

Alert: Kongregate API shadow services loaded due to local testing. API will load when the game is uploaded.
Kongregate API: IKongregateServices.connect()
Kongregate API: IHighScoreServices.submit(2520)
Kongregate API: IStatServices.submitStat(Highest Level,4)
Kongregate API: IHighScoreServices.submit(0)
Kongregate API: IStatServices.submitStat(Highest Level,1)
Kongregate API: IHighScoreServices.submit(0)
Kongregate API: IStatServices.submitStat(Highest Level,1)
Kongregate API: IStatServices.submitStat(Attempted to cheat,1)
Kongregate API: IStatServices.submitStat(Attempted to cheat,1)
Kongregate API: IHighScoreServices.submit(4330)
Kongregate API: IStatServices.submitStat(Highest Level,6)

However, when I upload the game on kongregate to test it, only one stat gets submitted – the “Attempted to cheat” stat. Everything else does not appear in the highscores. Furthermore, the “Attempted to cheat” stat only gets updated when I refresh the page.

Also, ?debug_level=3. Does this work? When I use it, I don’t see “info” spamming the chat. However, after refreshing, the “Attempted to cheat” stat does increase.

I’ve declared “Attempted to cheat” as an add stat, and “Highest Level” as a max stat, in the game’s API.

Can someone help?

Wow. Two hard badges in a row…and of which I don’t own either of those badges.

Tip for those who suck: You don’t need to complete the level, you only need the ace. Dying after getting ace still awards it. So, for the ace levels, you can just get the ace then die.
