Topic: Midas' Gold / Offline gains not working?

two days in a row now I open the game only to see the game made 0 progress and I didn’t receive any offline gains. I have maxed clock of morpheus, yet no progression and no message when entering the game after a day.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

i rated it 5 because it’s so rare to see a good game published on kong. the era of great games getting published weekly is clearly over, most devs have moved to steam and kong is left with nothing but garbage clickers or facebook style cashgrab mmos. thus expectations have lowered a lot so the high rating is no surprise.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

how do so many people get so many combos? The top scores are all in the thousands. while i played 10+ hours and have 150-300 combos mostly (except for critical which is super easy to get 500+).

Topic: Kongregate / Mu Complex badges have been retired [UPDATED]

that sucks. I understand wanting to sell the game on steam, but why not just release a steam version (maybe extra content, polished etc) and leave the kong game up? People do this all the time, see Game Corp, The Enchanted Cave 2, etc. I bet they remove their games because they are releasing the exact same games but for money. Douche move.

What will happen to the Best of 2014 Quest? Will it become unobtainable for people who missed out on the mu complex badge or will you remove the Mu complex badge requirement?

I have 100% and didn’t find it grindy at all. It takes a lot of skill in the later stages for the medals and it isn’t really a factor of grinding. As for getting there you can just mix it up between different training modes or do arena in between. I also like that you get more stats the better you do, so maybe you think it’s so grindy because you are terrible at the training sessions? I think an impossible is reasonable, at the very least a hard.

Topic: Tap Adventure / How to improve performance

yea the game runs pretty badly. try rightclick → quality and set it to low. otherwise rightclick → Settings uncheck hardware acceleration.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Optimal Formations.

^ trolling? that is far worse for that state. the 35% from khouri to 3 low dps back guys while giving up an absolute prime dps spot is absolutely not worth it.
I have sinced moved up but your suggestion would ~half the dps.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Report a Bug

Found a bug that makes me have negative click damage. http://i.imgur.com/VJFf8Xq.png
Basically I always had 0 click damage with this formation. I swapped Detective for Bushwakker to take down a boss with click buffs and once I swapped back to Detective over Bushwakker again I was at negative Click damage.

Topic: The Money Makers / What do you think is the best university path?

I tried 2 different paths. Lawyer gives 48 per click, Judge 32. In economy I got 11-88 for junior economist, so thats slightly more than a lawyer on average. (only 1 or 2 though).

edit: in research professor is 61, inventor 39.

So far, out of the 3 I tested (Law, Economy and Research) Research was the best $ per click.

Topic: Pool Live Pro / How To Play Pool 8

where do you have to put the 8 after pocketing all your balls? I put it in a corner and got an immediate loss. Do I have to score it in the opposite pocket? The game gives 0 indication on where to pocket the 8 after you are done with your balls.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / Ranks got changed? Lost over 20

Oh my bad then. Yea I remember I was once logged into a friends account and that’s probably why my highscore said 47, i was confused. Never mind then. Was just asking whether they reset levels or decayed them or something.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / Ranks got changed? Lost over 20

Hello there, I didn’t play for a very long time but today I came back to recheck the state of the game :) To my suprise my rank was only 27 but when I played it used to be rank 47! I even rechecked in my highscores and indeed I am somehow 20 levels lower than I used to be. I even did all the folding back then so I have all the hats, cowboy etc. What happened?

I hear you on the language thing. Although I speak english I’m american and the metric system in every question throws me off. I have to try to convert feet to meters or pounds to kilograms in my head before the timer goes off. They need to regionalize the questions or something.

Opposite here. There are quite a lot of questions about american football, american actors, american films, american politicians, american awards, american celebrities, american musicians, american everything. and even a lot of foot/inches/ounces question. I also noticed SOME metric questions but american topics are VASTLY preferred in this game, giving any native or local a HUGE advantage.

For example as a german I think so far I encountered 3 questions where being german would be an advantage (Steffie Graf, German Cars and Albert Einstein) while I encountered easily 40+ questions were being american would be a huge advantage. Mostly I am guessing then because it is simply too specific on being a local to that topic.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Triviador] Google cheaters

Early on this doesn’t happen so much but once I reached around level 20 and played against level 45s etc I noticed people get the years right spot on. Like when Company X was founded they say 1823 and hit it on the nail, or when Ghengis Khan died people write 1227 and win the round. They almost always take 10-12 seconds to answer (normally people answer around 5 seconds), and obviously google the answer. I’d say so far that it is possible to quickly google about one third of the questions. A lot of questions are not easily google-able in 10 seconds but that’s still a HUGE advantage.

If someone loses focus on the game, aka switches to another tab it should give enormous penalties. I know this is possible because other games notice if you switch a tab and pause the game, so do the same here but except of a pause an extremely point penalty will happen to limit google cheaters.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / Wait, did they delete all characters and items?

I had a level 32 rogue and spent a good amount of money on items, now I realize everything is gone. I mean, at least put the items I bought in my inventory or something. You surely can not remove paid items in an update??

Topic: Kongregate / How do you get sponsored by Kongregate

^ feel free to name some. I will look at their scores, gameplays and how good they are.
Even before knowing which games you talk about I can GUARANTEE on of the following: the game is mediocre at best, case closed OR the game is indeed good and was NOT overlooked. Again, feel free to name the games.

I would normally be happy to simply post it but I am worried that it would just sucked in the abyss of the ‘new games’ page and maybe get played by 300 people if I’m lucky. I think game really deserves and could get a lot more plays with some proper recognition.

Don’t worry, I have been on gamesites like Kong, NG, armorgames etc for a good 9 years now. IF your game is good that won’t happen. You don’t need to “promote” a good game. A good game will always stand out and will get plenty of plays. There are so many people who play games, like me I browse through the new games and 95+% is just trash, so that’s 2 mins wasted and low score of course. But every now and then I find a gem a game that is really good. but not once have i seen a really good game that was “overlooked”. It always ends up having great score and many comments, plays, etc.

If you fear your game will land in the abyss it means you are not confident of your game. It doesn’t happen to good games, period. If your games is only mediocre or let alone bad sure… it will go away but that’s the whole point of it. we want good games, and those WILL get recognition.

So, post it and let us play. if it sux or is mediocre well…. try harder next time. if its good it will get a lot of recognition by the very nature.

Topic: Kongregate / This is starting to piss me off

I just loaded up both games to see, both games are big but only about 70% of my screenheight. What’s your resolution? they seem to be roughly ~850px in height. Also, you can zoom out if you find them too big (ctrl-) or make your browser fullscreen (f11).
