Topic: Contract Wars / What is the FOV? 50?

Seriously, how can one change the FOV (field of view), the default is too narrow… How can this game have such polished graphics and demand kreds left and right and doesn’t have the simple option to set the FOV

Topic: CS Portable / Tired of being too good - add leagues

I know there are guys that claim they are good in forums but even if they are, I’m not going to schedule 1v1 matches. All I want is that there is a division of top players and I can join their games whenever I feel like playing CS Portable.

Topic: CS Portable / Tired of being too good - add leagues

Seriously, I join a TDM game 5 on 5 players, top player has already 35 kills and I still manage to get gold in that round. What’s the point of playing the next?

There should be leagues based on rank, or competitions when you know the best people will be seeded!

Topic: CS Portable / How do you jump on high boxes?

Nah, it just works whenever it wants to :( Can Igor look into it?

Topic: CS Portable / How do you jump on high boxes?

Solved it!
1.) Face the box at 45% to the side (so for example it’s diagonally to your left and you touch it).
2.) Have your knife as weapon.
3.) Look almost completely down vertically (let’s say 60%)
3.) Press jump and hold both forward and left strafe buttons.

Only with that strategy can I jump on the boxes with almost 100% success rate.
Probably that way your hit box is somehow smaller,higher!

Such a strange bug/feature.

There has to be a trick, I simply cannot jump on the boxes! It’s too high!

Topic: CS Portable / How do you jump on high boxes?

There are some boxes stacked on a low roof on SibZavod map that many people are able to jump on, and they jump to a chimney and then on the higher roof and then they can snipe the whole map as it’s as buggy as hell and they see through many walls (bad badface culling design of map).

The question is though, how do they manage to jump on the boxes first? They are rather high, and I succeed on jumping on one 1 out of 100 attempts and many players succeed from first time. Is there are trick?

Topic: CS Portable / Why youre always half noob half pro

If I’m way in the lead, and know other players can’t catch up (TDM) I usually goof around trying to kill people with grenades or knife them. Is this a half-noob half-pro behaviour?

Topic: CS Portable / Tips for pros

I just ended my professional CS Portable TDM career due to a wrist injury, but would like to share with you my skills (not srs).

Some of it is bugs, but since you’re playing to win if you don’t exploit them your enemy will and you’ll be at a disadvantage.

1.) If you’ve played Counter Strike the PC game – forget about the huge recoil when moving and jumping – the recoil is minimal if any and only when holding down shoot button.

2.) You can buy ammo anywhere, anytime – quickly tap B then E (make it habit with thumb on B and middle finger on E).

3.) (TDM) When enemy respawns, he quickly gets the green arrow icons for several frames – you know where he is if you are looking in that direction.

4.) (CTF) Flag is shown – shoot at it if shots through walls is enabled.

5.) If shooting through walls is enabled – do that repeatedly for safety aiming at known distant locations, you can always buy more ammo if it runs out.

6.) Go in a corner and rotate – now you see behind the wall.

7.) Know spawning locations – enemy will likely respawn in one distant from your current location.

8.) The art of shooting with AK/M16 at middle/long ranges – aim at head and tap the mouse as quickly as lightly as possible, don’t hold your finger at all – you should aim at 2.5 taps per second.

9.) AK/M16 Always duck upon seeing an oponnent in close, middle ranges in closed areas. If areas are open, try strafing, there is minimal recoil.

Good luck and keep trying, I hope you get the pro contract with Evil Geniuses or at least Complexity Gaming (not srs).

I’m sorry, but I just retired. This game is too easy for me, I’m looking for a challenge elsewhere…

You’re the 100th noob to claim that only to get owned hard and lay low for a while.

Topic: Technical Support / Can't press rectangular area under game

I’m using 11.0.1.152, and still get it, if it’s any help – I didn’t get any flash preloader ad, and top and bottom ads are Google Adsense (Crossfire Europe – top, eDreams – bottom)

Topic: Technical Support / Can't press rectangular area under game

I’m telling you that there is an invisible area that I can’t click and that you can highlight it to show you its boundary! Highlighted or not, you can’t click on it!!!

I’m not such a technical noob to not know how to highlight and dehilight …

Topic: Technical Support / Can't press rectangular area under game

Hi guys, when playing a game in both chrome and firefox, sometimes there is an overlay problem. I can’t click a rectangular area under game (voting works though somehow) that includes description and/or badges and bottom right ad. If I use select all, the rectangular overlay where i can’t click is highlighted.
Here is a pic, the area affected is the bottom darker blue rectangular area under flash game → http://i.imgur.com/4uKKb.png

This doesn’t break playing the game in any way, just you might be losing money as the ad isn’t clickable and also if there are no badges you can’t click on add to favourites, etc.

Topic: General Gaming / Great new game with Kong user level creation

Hello community,
I decided that there weren’t enough games that use the Kongregate custom level option so I created one! The game is similar to Red Remover, BUT it has custom levels in Kong, high scores, links, motor joints and creative level design. Please check it out at http://www.kongregate.com/games/ozdy/purple-invaders .

Yours,
Ozdy

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate vs. Newgrounds Round 1

Let me say as a developer that Kongregate is much better than Newgrounds on monetizing your game from traffic.
The downside is that unlike Newgrounds frontpage that can feature 10 games, Kongregate features only 3 hot new game. Still I’ve been frontpaged once on Kongregate and never on Newgrounds.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Hello guys, it’s ozdy

Hungry Shapes did very well on Kong and I am very grateful for the frontpage it got. The game indeed has an API, but I understand the score might not be good enough for it to get a badge. However, to all who enjoyed that game and would like to have it with badges, I recently did an API for another, smaller site with badges (I am not affiliated in any way with it) – http://www.gameshed.com/Hungry-Shapes/ . Enjoy :)

Heh, then I agree with you,
I also agree on Tower of Greed, great game by ESE.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

I understand what you mean. It’s a catch 22 – more views on Kongregate means more people view your game. So you would say more people would visit your site to play it there. However, it would also mean more people actually having played it at Kongregate, so more people wouldn’t bother to play it again at your site :).

The only reason I would say is (supposing the author didn’t know he could implement the API without showing stats or that doing so won’t give you the additional 10% revenue share) that if a user wants to submit his score and compete against others, he could only do it at CC.

The only thing you’re doing when not including API in your games is denying yourself money.

… and gaining more traffic to his own site (which would pay better than Kongregate’s 10% additional share).

If all the gaming sites could simply gain money without sacrificing their traffic, Kongregate would be full of Miniclip games, for example. But Miniclip would much rather monetize 100% of the traffic a game can do in their site than get the 25%-35% of revenue share Kongregate would give here.

I’m sure you’re being sarcastic, right? That level is very easy.

And no. Splitter 2 doesn’t have the API implemented.

:(. THEN GET IT AN API! And that impossible sounds like a horribly stupid idea…

Eugene Karataev (Splitter 1+2) is a very capable programmer that has previously implemented the API in his games. I am very sure he has a reason not to include it. He changed sponsor for Splitter from King.com to CasualCollective. AFAIK, CC is more of an employer than simply a sponsor. I am sure he was told not to include the API probably not to make the game so much worth playing at Kongregate. Splitter 1’s name was enough to draw attention to Splitter 2.CC is more interested in getting traffic into CC. Notice the required registration + visit to CC to make custom levels? Another interesting thing is that CC wants to make money from their users directly, and not through ads, there are none on their site.

So, having noticed that, I created Hungry Shapes with the idea for a physics puzzle with the API to satisfy you Kongers after being disappointed with Splitter 2 ;) ;) ;)
