Try adjusting the zoom on your browser (usually a slide bar in the lower right, or from the menu bar: view→zoom).

Topic: Technical Support / Malware?

Normally I would say that it is one of the advertisements on the site that did it, but in this case the warning seems to be about the game developer itself.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. open chrome
  2. go to http://www.kongregate.com/games/TogeProductions/infectonator-2
  3. when the disclaimer comes up within the game, click OK

I tried a few of the developer’s games (not all, just one or two of the other most recent) but did not see this warning after starting the game.

this some print screen:

Image fixed. That is not a Kong ad. They certainly do not do such things, especially on the private message pages. You have some ad ware on your computer that is putting ads into webpages. I am guessing this is happening to other webpages you visit too. You need to remove them. I am sure there are some a quick google search can help you do so.

Do you have a screen print? That would help more than anything.

I’ve been trying to get that badge for ages now, and only just finished it yesterday. Finally completed my Best of 2008 Quest too!

Congratulations! You just won the “Two Birds With One Stone” achievement and 80 points!

;)

-Pip

Actually, it is more like 4 birds, only they weren’t birds… and it wasn’t a stone but a gameplay…. so really not anything like it at all… but you get the idea.

Topic: Kongregate / Money From Kongregate

Copyright law is actually a complex thing. Parody, education, satires, criticism, etc. Now granted, if someone is making money off of them many of these reasons don’t hold their weight anymore, but there are still cases where it can be used. South Park is a great example. Because they are primarily using the copyrighted material in parody and satire they can do so legally even though they are making money off of it.

It is a thing for lawyers. I assume that Kongregate/GameStop have reviewed and re-reviewed the process to make sure that they do not open themselves to litigation from either the copyright holder or developers leveraging “fair use” of copyrighted works.

Topic: Technical Support / how do i start playing

Mac’s can use flash. You can thank Mac for that. I understand that there might be emulators that allow you to use a flash-like thing (or maybe flash itself) on a Mac. There are also some unity games and HTML 5 games on the site (but most are indeed flash).

Topic: Technical Support / Can't earn first quest badge

I just tried to play and it works fine for me. What is wrong that you can’t control it? Are you not able to jump or something (if that is it, remember that “s” is jump and not “up arrow”)? If that is not it, maybe you can describe what it is that is wrong with the controls?

You also have some ad-ware installed that is likely causing you to not be able to connect (see the “Ads by OnlineBrowserAdvertising”). Might want to get rid of those.

Topic: Dragon Storm Gold Mobile / What is the best way to grow Power?

I am looking for the most efficent way to grow power. I assumed this would be done by upgrading and building locations at my city. Also completing campains and quests. However the last few of these I have done haven’t gotten me any power (and I was not paying attention earlier to what I did to increase power).

Any advice?

Thanks,
Pip

Topic: Kongregate / Why only teens on kong?

If you are asking why you have to be a minimum of 13 to join Kong, the answer is COPPA (which stands for the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Since the Kongregate servers are located in the US, they are bound by US law (even if you are outside of the US. There might also be similar laws in other countries as well.

The US act, which went into law in the year 2000, speaks to online collection of personal information by persons or entities (Kong would be an “entity” here) under U.S. jurisdiction from children under 13 years of age. If you want more data, you can follow the two links I posted above.

Topic: Kongregate / Kong Kred Ad Exploitation

There are two separate videos. There is a regular version and a “director’s cut” version. You can watch both in the “free kreds” section of the page where you buy kreds. Likely you watched one of each and won’t get anymore.

-Pip

PS edit – so I just went to TrailPay and tried to watch them again… I was able to watch the commercial another 2 times then it disappeared from TrialPay. So it seems you can watch the director’s cut once and the regular version 3 times.

Topic: Technical Support / Kreds explore..

Oh sorry. Re-reading it, it seems a bit obvious that is what you were talking about. My apologies.

I never saw that (I was around before it started and just got it automatically a few weeks after it was released). If you click on that progress bar, does it take you to a list of the requirements that you have to complete? If it does, does it show you as “getting to level 5”? If so, it is likely just a display/cache issue as adv0catus says.

Topic: Technical Support / unity games wont work

I had a ton of problems running Unity games on my old computer. It doesn’t seem to like old computers. If your computer is older this might be the cause of your problem. My new computer runs Unity games fine (even with the same OS).

I know that you might not like this answer. Have you tried playing the game on a different computer to see if that helps?

Topic: Kongregate / Game Message Spam aggravation

@ Runeangel,

Here is a simplified example which I hope allows you to see Alsee’s frustration:

Joe Smith is a popular guy. Lots of people like him. Now there is this company that sells penis enlargement pills. The way that they market is that they give an incentive to everyone who gives them the email addresses of their friends. They then send each of those friends an email asking them if they want their penis enlarged. They do this even if they have sent one before (via another client’s list of friends). Joe feels like he is getting spammed with penis enlargement emails. So he writes a complaint to the Better Business Bureau on the company due to them sending him penis emails. He also makes this complaint very visible by shearing on Facebook and other social media as he feels like it is his way to punish what he sees as bad behavior.

Would you say that Joe is the victim in this example? Would you agree that Joe feels justified in calling the penis enlargement emails spam? Would you consider Joe’s behavior harassing to the company that is trying to sell him these pills?

Kong has stated quite plainly that you can use whatever justification you want for a low rating (bad graphics, poor plot, misspellings in the game text, bugs, and even messages sent to players who have never played their game).

I myself give a 1 star to any game that I have not played that sends me a game message. I also post a comment on their game saying why I gave this 1 star. I don’t believe what I do is inappropriate.

-Pip

PS – by the way, I believe Alsee has directed feedback to Kong on this issue:

Originally posted by Alsee:

Kongregate, are you ever going to fix this damn problem and give us a block-all button? Are you ever even going answer?


I believe that this thread is Alsee’s public way of providing negative feedback on Kong for their lack of a “do not call list” similar to what the US Government has for its citizens.

The advertisements come from google ads. So the websites you visit help to determine what ads you see.

Topic: Technical Support / Banned for no reason

@ availbility/thomasegghead – you won’t get banned for having an incorrect birth date on your account. You can get banned for saying you are under 13 in chat (and this is where most underage bans come from). Like I said, if you have passed your 13th birthday since your ban last year you can contact support@kongregate.com to get unbanned.

@ adv0catus – I wasn’t arguing. I didn’t mean to come off that way. I was just noticing that there were different dates across accounts and posts… and if there was a different date mentioned in chat (which was under 13), that was likely the reason for the ban.

Interesting that your availbility account says you are 44 and your thomasegghead account says you are 21, but your post says you are 14. Did you say you were some other age in chat?

It is interesting to note that you were banned almost a year ago. So if you have passed your 13th birthday since your ban, you can request to get unbanned.

Hover over it…. check the upper right corner for a small “X”. It is usually there on google ads.
