Topic: Technical Support / 502 Bad Gateway

Did youdownload VLC player by any chance?

Check your browser add-ons (or “extensions”) and disable them one by one to see if any of them are causing this.

Good! I’m happy I mentioned one thing that worked. Have fun!

Topic: Technical Support / can not connect to chat?

had an answer. That part worked the way he says it will. However, it didn’t fix my problem. So allowing those two ports to be open and sending information didn’t fix my problem. I do have windows 7 firewall. Which works differently than vista (which is the information and instructions that you have).

Hmm. At least you’re done with the hard solution! Let’s try a few simple things.
• Zshadow suggests to make sure your date & time is correct on your PC. (The bottom right clock and date)
• Check to see if chat loads on different browsers like IE. If the chat does load, this means the problem is within your browser. Try reinstalling it and disabling add-ons.
• Clear your browser’s cookies and restart your computer.

i don’t feel like messing with my firewall, mostly because the chat does load (rarely) and always had loaded before.
i THINK this problem started during Kongs last maintenance.

So, “repetition” is the game I’m going to have to play here.
Can you load chat on different browser such as IE?

If yes, try disabling any add-ons you have on the problematic browser and reinstalling your browser.
If no, then you can refer to my previous posts or refer to this post directly. If you need any help on how to do one of the steps I’ll gladly help.

If you’ve truly done everything, you need to email support@kongregate.com with your claim. They should get to you within the week.

EDIT: Finally! I figured out what was causing that formatting explosion. Sorry for not quoting! I tried my best to replicate it.
… And Waffles said “LET THERE BE FORMATTING!”


siaho: “My problems continue, updating did nothing. When I logged on to one game the chat loaded. when i went to another game the first game’s chat disconnected per normal, but no other games chat load, though the games themselves do load.”

Hmm. It doesn’t work on Chrome, but does chat load on other browsers?

ta_ha: “Came back to kong, after quite a few months to discover chat doesnt work. How can I fix this? The method mentioned above didnt work.”

You can always try logging out and restarting your computer. Sounds simple, but it sometimes works for some people.

Bashy_Goodwife: “I went to control panel/security/windows firewall… there is nothing there that says add anything. Just programs. I wonder if getting rid of that firewall might help. If it does then I know that I need my Husband who is in IT to figure it out, if not, then I’m at the beginning again. I do know that while there is a problem, I haven’t been on kong at all to play games. Just long enough to see if it is still not allowing me to connect to kong chat. Then I get back off.”

You’re in the right spot! The pesky button is just disguised. You should see “Allow a program through Windows Firewall,” after clicking that then you’ll see the port addition button.

Topic: Technical Support / can not connect to chat?

It just started a few days ago, and I haven’t changed anything on my computer. I’ve been in kong for a long time (well to me) now. I already checked that though. Updating the flash drive did nothing. I still can’t get into chat.

I’m confused on what you mean by “I’ve already checked that.” You’ve already checked the firewall ports to see if they’re allowing traffic?
I know you already reinstalled your flash player; that’s why I didn’t say mention it in my reply to you. I know it’s annoying and a hassle, but you need to check all possible solutions. Reinstalling your flash player obviously isn’t working, so stop convincing yourself that that’s the only solution! =)

Read my previous post again to find how to allow certain ports through your firewall. If you’re sure you don’t have a firewall of any kind, say so, because then I’ll walk through more solution possibilities with you if you still want help. You can’t allow yourself to get frustrated. Be patient!

If you need further help, reply accordingly and I’ll be glad to help you!

Topic: Technical Support / Advertisement popups?

I use Chrome and have Norton as well, and occasionally I come across an audio ad. To me it seems like Kongregate is doing better (if it is Kongregate?) at keeping those auto play side-ads off the site, but they happen occasionally. If you’re scared it’s a virus, just use Norton to scan your system!

If it’s a pop-up, just click the little ‘X’ in the corner. If it’s one of those annoying no pop-up audio ads, then the source is going to be on the side and you can mute/exit the ad there.

Are you still having issues?

Originally posted by demonote:

My chrome is doing this also. If you figure out please share.

Can you connect to chat when you right click Chrome and choose “open as administrator?” This is to make sure you’re not running in safe mode.

Originally posted by Basherte:

I am using firefox. The last few days I can’t get into chat. All I see is a black screen with “connecting to chat” with a red plug in the upper right corner of that screen. It never changes.

It sounds redundant, but make sure the URL starts with: http://www.kongregate.com/
If it is correct, do you have Norton or any other program that would have a firewall?
Edit: If you do have Windows firewall, you need to make sure your firewall is allowing traffic on ports 5222 and 5229. You can go to this link to see how to do this. If you have some other firewall, just post what it is and I can find out how to allow ports on it for you.

Are you right-clicking in the game itself? When the selection box comes up, you have to click ‘settings’ to see the above window.

My flash is set to unlimited but am having same issue. Checking into it I found the scripts are stopping at transferring data from google-analytics or transfering/reading data from cdn(1-4).kongregate.com – it sticks on various ones so I included the ones I have seen it stop at. Any Ideas?

What browser do you use?

I’m going to quote my own post since I’m way too lazy.

Originally posted by Waffles911:

Games stopping at a certain percent can be a symptom of your local storage being maxed out.
Right click anywhere on the game screen and bring up the settings. You’ll see some sort icon on a tab that has a folder on it.

Be sure and move it higher or to ‘unlimited.’
Hope this helps!

If it still doesn’t load, post so.

Topic: Kongregate / All the Forum posters are from the same rooms

Babylon wasn’t mentioned? D: Then again I’m the only forum-active person from there that I know of. Darn. I might have to swing by one of those listed chat rooms and see what it’s like seeing people I only know from the forums chatting in a room. I’ve always imagined it would be strange at first.

Topic: Kongregate / Oh God...Papa's Cupcakeria

I still think Papa Louie is actually Jigsaw from the SAW series

(Cue opening like Saw VI)
“Hello. I want to play a game…”, says Papa Louie to his new chefs for Papa’s Cupcakeria.
“The one who will win this game will have my new Cupcakeria. But the one who will lose will die. The choice is yours.”

I just have to post and say this made me chuckle for about two minutes. So great! I love the comparison!

Topic: Kongregate / Birthdays!!

They gave you this little [image] cosmetic change if you hung around with K+ since the beginning.

I’m pretty sure the Charter only means you bought (or received) K+ during that first month or so when it came out.

One thing I’ve always wondered about would be if they could add a little cake image next to your name in chat when it’s your birthday

I’ve always thought about that myself… Kongregate has special icons for events like Survivors VS Zombies, so why not birthdays? Of course if you don’t want your birthday to known, you can opt out. There wouldn’t be a problem with people abusing it because you can’t change your profile birthday. Hopefully soon! I’d love to see little cosmetic additions like this to come to Kongregate.

Topic: General Gaming / the pros/cons list for the next gen console

All look like great consoles, but Microsoft is taking the Xbox One onto a different path. If anyone remembers seeing it on their 360, Microsoft even researched what their customers do on their Xbox.
The results came out by Yusuf Mehdi, the head marketing and strategy director, by a statement he made:

… households now spend an average of 84 hours a month on the Xbox Live online service playing games, watching videos and listening to music. That’s up 30% from a year ago. Just over half that time is spent on videos and music.

What we’re seeing is that people are turning on the Xbox to play games and then keeping it on afterwards to get other types of entertainment.

With that being said I think the lists you made, especially for the Wii U, are biased in some sort of fashion, e.g., “all ways on kinect and 24 online check in” can be seen as a pro rather than a con to some people.
Maybe add some specific details about each item listed to justify your claims?

It wasn’t my intention to be bashful— Sorry if it seemed that way. I mean to simply say one shouldn’t expect much from an off-topic forum in a flash gaming website. If can find a whole batch of entertainment solely from the OT, that’s great and kudos to you! (:

Topic: Kongregate / MY KONG!?

People are resistant to change and they will shine any negative light possible on the situation in order to see it their way. I completely agree with Stots. Kongregate isn’t “killing itself,” it’s just adapting to the changing times. Not every update is the greatest ever, but the general aim is in the right direction.

No, but Kong is slowly killing itself as it is trying to copy other websites.

Yep, everything that made Kong unique is gone. The only thing keeping me here now is OT and let’s face it, OT sucks.

If you’re here only for OT, you’re here for the wrong reasons.

I get kicked to much from Ant Hill…. so I stay away for there. The room owner is a bully as well as some of the mods. Not my kind of room.

Bad mods nominate more bad mods. They’ve been weeded out (it seems) throughout the years, but sadly they still congregate in certain rooms. I guess it’s the constant pressure of such a wild chatroom 24/7.

Any of those point and click games are easy badges, especially if you use the walkthrough. I.e., any of the Reincarnation games, Don’t Escape, or any games with badges on http://www.kongregate.com/point-and-click-games would work. Good luck on your badge hunt!
