By the way, thanks to this, I now have the Kongregate forum app on my phone, which is excellent. Great job!

Glad you like it!

Topic: Kongregate / Profile page redesign: now with a feed!

Zomg, why are you guys becoming more like Friendster?! I’m leaving Kong to go back to my Atari.

Also, looks like Tricky has decided to block me. :’(

Topic: Kongregate / Arcade Pro for Android: running in the background without user permission

Task managers on Android are bad, stupid, and pointless. The Android OS loads apps into memory as a form of caching. These cached apps are then unloaded whenever the OS needs more memory.

Topic: Kongregate / Deleting Kong announcements

I can understand why they want to persist some whispers, such as warnings and certain messages that provide some sort of historical reference. The other stuff, however, I’d love to be able to delete.

Topic: Kongregate / Unofficial Kongregate Forum app for Android! (Updated 5/1/2012)

1) Blockquote boxes backround is too transparent. It literally blends too well in gray black backround

I’ll keep that in mind for the theming update. I plan on allowing for user-definable themes, and will make sure one can configure all the colors in the thread view.

2) Pictures. A full view of a picture would be greatly appreciated

I’ll see what I can do.

3) It doesn’t always happen but image filled threads sometimes tends to do so. Well, they are heavy to load so what you’re going to do for it

I have a feeling it might have to do with memory usage (your device may be dumping ones that are scrolled out of view. What device do you use? I might be able to figure out a low-res workaround, but that’ll take time.

Thanks for your feedback!

Sorry to hear that you had so much trouble with it. If this crashes for you, please use the report button on the crash message. That’ll help me track down the bug you’re encountering.

Looks like today’s update broke my authentication mechanism. I fixed it and and uploaded the new release to the Play Store. It’ll take about 30 minutes or so before Google publishes the update, but rest assured it’s out there :-) Thanks go out to Maik50 for bringing it to me attention.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate, Facebook Timeline and you!

As much as I dislike Facebook, I don’t see how this is a sign of Kong selling out. Additionally, this is totally optional – don’t link your Facebook account if you don’t want people to see it.

The flagging feature is already planned for a future iteration. A few questions:

  • What do you mean by “better visibility”?
  • What do you want to zoom in on?
  • Can you provide a thread where the images aren’t loading? If they aren’t, does refreshing fix it?
  • The headline lettering overlaps aren’t a bug, per se – I consciously made that design decision.

Hey all, sorry for the long delay. Life and video games distracted me. There are a lot of changes in this release that should improve things for everyone.

New Features

  • Ice Cream Sandwich compatibility with full GPU acceleration
  • More native widgets and controls
  • Changed the layout of the post editor to reduce the number of accidental ‘Post’ and ‘Cancel’ taps
  • Eliminated the slight lag between transitions when selecting a subforum or topic
  • Images are now resized whenever the device is rotated
  • Under the hood changes in preparation for tablet support and theming
  • Theme improvements
  • Performance improvements

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the bug that required the Quote/Edit/Delete action workaround
  • Fixed a bug where the app would throw an error when returning from the background

Download the app from the Play Store.

Upcoming features

Yes, I’ve heard your requests regarding search and reporting, and plan on implementing those.

Feedback?

If you like the app, rate (or +1) it! If you think it’s the worst thing since Indiana Jones 4, let me know what I can do to change your mind. If it crashes, please send the crash report! Those things are invaluable to a developer as they contain a stack trace, which makes figuring out what’s going on a lot easier.

Topic: Kongregate / The Official Unofficial MODCALL Script (now with Chrome and Opera support!)

I’m currently on vacation and can’t put out a fix. However, it’s awfully tempting to kill the script given that Kong has shown that they don’t give a crap about chatscript devs.

I’ll look at it in the new year.

Topic: Kongregate / What the hell!

According to the shout on silkysox’s profile:

In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (http://www.coppa.org) your account has been permanently banned for being underage. This is not a choice Kongregate makes but a United States federal law we are required to follow. We hope to see you again once you turn 13!

If you want to dispute this, PM one of the admins or contact support@kongregate.com. Posting in the forums does nothing.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Arcade Pro on Amazon AppStore for $4.99: legit / current?

So, looks like they re-added caching for this version (after Google forced them to remove it from the free Market version) and they automatically go into full screen mode. The Xperia play modifications, though, are something I’m not entirely sure about.

Topic: Kongregate / Unofficial Kongregate Forum app for Android! (Updated 5/1/2012)

Version 1.0 is out! I took some time off from working on the app, so sorry that this took longer than I promised.

New Features

  • Post titles can now be edited!
  • Users can now jump to the last page of a post OR the last post
  • Performance improvements
  • Behind-the-scenes changes in preparation for Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Smaller app size!

Bug Fixes

  • Improved the consistency of jumping to the newest post
  • Fixed bug where users couldn’t select text on Android 2.3+

The next update will bring Android 4.0 support and will be a pretty major redesign of the app.

Conversely, shouldn’t Chrome users post their CSS for Firefox users to apply as well?

Is it supposed to?

I unlinked my accounts and I no longer get logged out of Facebook when I log out of Kong. I re-linked them and it happens once more. This would only make sense if I used the Facebook sign-in option. I don’t. This is a bug.
