Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / New guns like flamethrower

you do not want to use flames on zombies.
all it does is set them aflame and now you have to deal with BURNING ZOMBIES.
Flamethrowers are a psychological weapon because of pain.
Even Alien drones (you know, the black ones with the antlers on their back) fear fire. most of the time.
zombies don’t, they don’t feel pain.

Topic: Kongregate / Complaint: pseudo news ad-show

They won’t see anything, that shit (now from http://www.ilovesports. tv/ ) is behind the flash plugin and invisible on a screenshot.

Topic: Kongregate / Complaint: pseudo news ad-show

There’s no link. It’s not a link. The thing that got displayed is a “news” show about people that appear to be important, that do sometimes stupid shit, and have more money in their purse than I will have ever in my Bank account. There was no link. It played UNDER the game, or the ad-layer closed and the audio kept playing and nearly made me spill my last meal with about 2.3 bar.

Topic: Kongregate / Complaint: pseudo news ad-show

Loaded Last stand: Dead zone.
Ad probably got triggered. I’m ok with /that/.
Game loaded, ad terminated. NOT.
Instead, it did play behind the game’s window (tab was inactive on loading).

I really really hate those stupid pseudo news.
I don’t give a flying duck about kirsten someone and her current suitor, or who he slept with last. or she? Whatever.

This is not a matter of K+ or not when the ad is played under the game and keeps force feeding my brain pop tart sized bullocks.

AND. THEY. WONT. STOP. TALKING.

Topic: Kongregate / backyard monsters shutting down and i get some free stuff for a game i dontplay lol

when that cesary thing got pulled for copyright claims I was told kongregate had a sit-in with devs of other games and those devs had to agree to hand out some freebies for their users first before the Kong people could do anything.

Really? What is with the mindset of people thinking that they are entitled to everything? You say Gamestop is happy to take your money and don’t give back?

Uh… You’re buying a game. It’s not like you’re throwing your money away (assuming that buying video games isn’t a waste of money). You give them something they give you something.

Also by indicating “US based companies” you make it seem as if only American companies do this. Another one of those “Only in America blahblah” things.

You give Gamestop money, they give you video games. There you go.

Several games I follow have had sweeptakes in one form or another, and their US based publishers had to exclude almost everyone not in the USA or UK.
Last rage inducing example? Perfect World Entertainment’s Blacklight: Retribution “1000$ a day” raffle.
Especially the EU server was up in revolt, non the least because they did advertise for it even on there and handed out for-the-majority-useless tickets for that lottery.

All I really ask for is,
“Guys, please consider the people that endure this shit every year and work out some sort of filter so the game doesn’t keep telling them they suck for not being north americans”.

We were promised events, give aways and sweep stakes through powerUP.
I’m still waiti—- oh, no. It’s not available to germans and large parts of europe. again.

Like any other US based company Gamestop is happy to take money from europeans, but doesn’t give back in the form of letting people partake in their bonus programs.

Wonder if that is related to our “oh-so-restrictive” privacy regulations, preventing them to make another buck on our information?
Wondering how PayBack flourishes like that, then.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Sort junk!

The game should sort your junk depending on the resource and components you can get off them.
So a broken table is grouped with a knife block, a chair and a cable spool, while forks, whisks and spatulas are in the metal group, same for pillows and the other cloth stuff.
junk that doesnt drop resources (cellphones and doorbells for example) are grouped by the component they contain most.

Thanks L203.

it’s basicly on every game with every ad provided by your farm-keepers.
clicking around and spamming the tabulator key revealed that some of the close-links appear at, for example, Y position 200 pixels from top border of game window, while the window itself is only 180 or so pixels large.

Those are house numbers, mind you. I didn’t check the actual size parameters, the point I’m trying to get accross is the links are “out of bounds” and essentially invisible to the average user.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongratulations, Kongregate.

You are currently managing to “shoo!” away a lot of people simply by removing the ‘close’ link on pre-game advertising.
I should probably mention that this overlay doesnt even close anymore.

Oh, you want me to pay for K+? Lemme thi-NO.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] Yard redesign too complicated!

I’d wish you could store your buildings temporarily in a void of sorts. Especially wallblocks.
Of course, every building that’s “voided” can not produce, research or store anything for the time it is not placed.
Best course of action would be to add it to a sufficiently high leveled townhall (under “more…” – you can’t recycle it anyway, right?), so it doesn’t need a new building and you have totaly free reign to move and place the TH.

If a building is still stored up by the time the idle or session timer runs out, and its original space is occupied, it is randomly placed by force to prevent cheating by hiding important structures in the TH ‘void’.

Also, just to make sure, making us pay shiney for this important feature would definitely defeat it’s purpose. Especially if it costs more than three.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battlestar Galactica Online] Cylon pilots?

thats called intelectual freedom i think. it is highly possible that all cylon consciousnesses (spelling?) can be transfered like an mp3. that’s why they can/could resurrect, too.

also, the wiki notes that the game and the series start to differ at a certain point.

the server selector randomly generates your log in password, only the id stays the same.
I assume its a challenge response thing.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battlestar Galactica Online] Suggestions for the game

Kongregate launcher:
- reduce the size (it’s an auto log in mirror of the actual page and superflous)
- remember the last played server (I play Picon, yet it keeps selecting Libran)

General Game:
- do something about industrial mining. I understand it’s a wing activity, yet it’s near impossible to find a ’toid worth investing time and cubits as sufficiently high level players able to defend just wait until you lose it so they can open their own pockets.
- The camera.
Why does it flip over when you do a looping?
Why does the ship stay on its head until you let go of the controls?
Fix that please, at least the cameraflip is terribly disorienting.

Topic: Technical Support / Advertising

I liked how you where able to press the link “close” to abort flash ads in the games.

Has this been disabled? It’s annoying to watch the promoting trailers over and over again (I won’t buy cataclysm, even if you stuff it down my throat – don’t even want to TRY wow).

I played it on firefox with no trouble whatsoever. Maybe you didnt update your flash player lately?
Also, some of the villagers are meant to go invisible, but they can be killed by throwing an anvil on them.
