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: 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: Dueling Blades / 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).

Four days left! Time to start taking the screenshots; only the screenshots in thread will be counted. I doubt all of you want dubesor taking the victory for being the only one to post a screenshot.

Mhhh… so wasn’t the contest supposed to have ended 1.5 weeks ago? You guys have removed the first post and the deadlines etc.
Would be kind of unfair if you cancelled since I have put extremely high number of work into this contest… not my fault no one really contributed >.<

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestion - Adult Games

Personally no, but I wouldn’t mind if they did. I see nothing wrong with it.
Look at Newgrounds they are the best example imho how to handle 18+ content. You never accidentally stumble upon it, and it is very nicely filtered yet still accessible for anyone who actively wants it.

I’ve played some adult games and, obviously most are crappy anime porn but I was also suprised to find some really good ones that I ACTUALLY enjoyed for the gameplay. Games like franks adventure series or some of those relationship sims, oh an recently Sakyubasu.

So, I would be fine either way. Doesn’t fit the image of Kong though imo, it’s not really known to be a mature site.

Topic: Kongregate / Vertigo: Gravity Llama (Impossible Badge Discussion)

the game is really buggy the ingame statistics list total deaths: 0 when I died way over 100 times. the deathcount stats in the highscore tab are totally different. despite finishing the game I never really knew how to get medals or what the D S B etc meant. Also number of flips shows a 4 in world 1 for me,which can’t be possible because I usually need like 8. And I have no idea how to get the trophy in the center but it wasn’t necessary for the impossible.

Topic: Kongregate / Help on trying to spend Kreds...

I also had that issue several times on Firefox (always latest version) while being connected/green plug.
The next day it worked fine. Seems to be a general problem with the kong-server having hiccups every now and then.

Topic: Kongregate / [Contest] Mother Of All Puzzles

Oh, totally forgot about this.
Anyhow I have quit playing a while ago, every further level gets more and more frustrating.
Even when I solve a level, I don’t have the feeling “Ahh, so that makes sense”, but rather “Umm, ok? Lucky guess from me”.

Overall the puzzles are far too crypted and flat out illogical to enjoy solving.

here is my latest progress from some time ago to put me on the leaderboards:

and yep I know who that guy is and the company etc ;) so don’t bother helping I don’t care anymore.

Uff I cant even remember all the games I played in 2012 on Kong. There were some truly awsome ones. Any way I can filter by date which games I have rated highly?

Topic: Kongregate / Criticizing.....

constructive critisism is good. any decent developer wants it. that way he can see where his major flaws were and easily fix them or implement/avoid them in his next game. it helps out tremendously. much more than asskissers who rate “5/5 PERFECT”.

Topic: Kongregate / why does Kong HATE NINTENDO??

Normally they should have it. Since they are owned by Gamestop which supports and sells Wii products. I guess their webcoder was just being a lazy ass and didn’t implement it yet.
