Topic: General Gaming / [Desktop TD Pro] cant load game

I have the same problem. I’m running Ubuntu and occasionally have trouble with flash, which may have something to do with it.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

This could be more work than it’s worth, but to help fight the occasional troll that just keeps making more accounts, a mod function to “universally mute” would be nice. It would make it so that the spammer is the only one who can see what they are posting, so they could spend quite a while thinking that they were simply being ignored and get tired rather than make a new account, and it would be better than everyone muting individually because it would keep the guests from having to stare at line after line of racial slurs or “OMG (whoever banned the troll the first time) is such a **** **** *!”

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

I think that Kongregate should delete the accounts of people who have been permabanned after one or two months. I was searching through user profiles, and I’ve found many accounts that were made simply for the purpose of spamming. (such as “greg_you_SUCK”) It seems like deleting these accounts could save filespace (though that probably isn’t a pressing concern) and make searches easier, and possibly streamline the buddy list displays and some of the scoreboards. It seems that the accounts have no purpose, unless the person was banned unfairly, and even then I’d think that two (or three or six) months would be plenty of time to get things sorted out.

In a barely related note, the search function seems to be broken. I typed in several usernames, and the only results that came up were users that had the name in their description, even when I copied and pasted the whole name from their profile. (ex. ThemePark will not return ThemePark, greg returns greg_3 and someone whose website is greg-hay.com, but not greg)

I’d like one please, and all of the ones in the post above me (erm, on the previous page) have been used.

I’ve checked in several times, but I haven’t seen fragment. I wasn’t here early this week, but I’ve been on regularly since wenesday. What time zone are you in? I’m on Pacific, maybe I’m coming on later than you.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

So would it be considered rude to contact the creators of some of these games and ask that they implement the API’s? Because I would really like a Caravaneer badge that you could get for beating the story.

Topic: General Gaming / Request a Guide!

Thanks Dragily, there was 3 coins that I couldn’t find, and I’d been through the game 4 or 5 times.

And Hitaro, while I don’t like it when people demand guides without trying, I have no problem helping people who have already put plenty of time in on their own, especially when I’ve known them to help others, and not just try to get stuff for themselves.

Topic: General Gaming / Request a Guide!

I’d like to request a guide for terrascape, or more specifically, ask about what you need to do to collect the coins (do you need to use different players? do you need to do it without dying? what do the symbols on them mean, etc.)

Topic: Kongregate / Player created competitions

I heard something a while ago about users creating competitions in chat, seeing who could get the highest score on a certain game, etc., and I was wondering if this was something that’s just happening spontaneously, or if something enabling this is going to be eventually hard-coded into Kong. If it is, will it be something that just displays the winners, or will users be able to bet their points or something like that. (think like tournaments in puzzle pirates, if that helps, I really liked their tournament system)

As far as badges go, I’d like to be able to choose which to display on my profile, rather than just the most recent ones I’ve earned.

OK, thanks. My demo’s run out so I think I’m going to buy it in the next few days.

Topic: Game Programming / Swish

I recently downloaded SwishMax (http://www.swishzone.com/index.php?area=products&product=max) and I think I’m going to buy it ($100 vs $1000 for Flash) and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it, and could share anything useful.
(besides “Noooo! It’s not as good as flash!”)

Topic: Kongregate / Wondering

greg is truly the Dread Pirate Roberts! Piracy was getting to risky, so he decided to go into web design.

Will multi-authoring enable splitting ad revenue and sponsorship money? If so, will the game have to produce double the money for the authors to cash out?

Topic: General Gaming / Achievement negative rating

I was thinking about this, and it might be good to give a “bonus score” to a game’s rating when it’s selected for a challenge or achievement, because of people’s responses. I’ve seen plenty of great games who’s comments were suddenly filled with angry remarks by people who thought that it was too hard, and it’s not fair that good games should be punished for being worth a challenge or achievement.

yeah, when are you on? I added you as a friend but I haven’t seen you on once. I’m always in the van when I’m on, so you should check there for me.

I don’t know if Caravaneer supports the challenge API, but if it does, I really want a caravaneer acheivement.

Topic: Kongregate / Are you a master of Warbears?

1300 to 1400? Warbears is a pretty long game, it would kind of suck to have to start over for making a single mistake, but it would still be hard if you need to complete the game with a few secrets. (I’ve never beaten the first level in all my tries)

Topic: Off-topic / Words of just one beat

It would be more fun if we had to say a thing that you choose to make things less broad. This is like when me and my friend spoke and used not the sound “e”.

Topic: Off-topic / Math riddle thingy!

Here’s one that’s less math, and that I’m not completely sure of the answer on, but that I think I know close enough.

An air-filled baloon is tied to a brick so that it is floating (not moving up or down) halfway to the bottom of a 10 foot pool. What does the baloon do if you move it 1 foot farther down? 1 foot farther up?

Topic: Off-topic / Math riddle thingy!

Here’s one that’s alot easier than most of the one’s I’ve seen here.
a+b=c
4a-3a+4b-3b=4c-3c //move the fours to one side and the threes to one side:
4a+4b-4c=3a+3b-3c //factor and cancel:
4(a+b-c)=3(a+b=c)
4=3

I’ll think of a harder one later.
