If you’ve got an idea it’s more likely to get noticed over at TLS’s GetSatisfaction page.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Which are the ways to get free fuel?

Peak Oil books increase the chances of fuel pickups, and I’ve seen permanent Peak Oils go as high as 18%. Also, the cap for finding fuel per day is 10, I believe.

I need some advice. I’m level 12, and I have 6 survivors, the 6th one being an engineer. I just read this, and now I regret getting an engineer. I knew engineers are underpowered, but I did not realize that other classes can also disarm traps. I’ve already spent some fuel on weapons for my engineer. Should I construct the training center and retrain my engineer to something else, or continue going with the engineer class?

I’d suggest retraining him to another class, and make the type a type that specs in the weapons you crafted.

There’s nothing wrong and why did you make a completely new forum about a single typo if there is one? What a waste.

Well, the thread exists, why not make it a thread for all found grammar issues?

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Suggesgons On the Game (actually turned into an idea box so post away)

I think the reason that bugfix isn’t used is that then you could simply refresh after clearing a building but before leaving if you don’t get what you want, then do the building again till you get what you’re looking for so buildings lock to prevent this. Of course there’s no good reason for this game to crash as much as it does…

I think a way to fix this would be to lock when the mission report comes up, but if it doesn’t come up when it should the building locks anyway and shuts the player out.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Zombie Survival 101

Great tips, will help a lot. Can’t wait to see more!

according to the wiki leaders are effectively specialized with all weapons

Last I checked, it said leaders had no specs, but were useful in fighting due to the fact that they are guaranteed to be highest level and will be able to use the cool new shiny gear first.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / This game idea stolen from Rebuild 2?

I like how people see similar things in games and go ‘UGH STOLEN’. Inspiration does not equal theft.

Ivan the trader: Once every week (on weekends?) Ivan comes by and hangs around your compound; you can trade resources with him at 2:1 (or higher) ratio, so for example you can get rid of all that excess metal you collected for cloth or wood or other stuff.

+1 to both of these. Would be so extraordinarily useful for getting rid of resources you don’t want for ones you need. I always have far too much ammunition and too little cloth – it’d be nice to even that out.

An idea for travel times; reduce the time with movement points. Take the lowest point of the group, then add that to 30% (or so) of the total movement points of the rest of the group and then take off 2-5 seconds for every point.

Topic: Kongregate / Hot New Games....

I completely agree with this. As one person said in the comments (which is now in top comments) ‘If I want to play a facebook game, I’ll go play it on facebook.‘. I hate facebook-type games. I don’t want to wait an hour or so for something to happen, and I don’t want to have to invite a damn friend in order to get something. Most of all I don’t want to pay for anything to happen in under a day or for it to happen at all. That’s not fun, that’s the developer throwing a shit game together and screaming ‘GIMME MONIES’. I know some types find that fun, for some reason, however if they want to play that kind of game they can go to freaking facebook – I don’t want to go to Kongregate and find exactly the kind of game I hate getting top everything despite the fact that nobody actually likes it. I go to Kongregate for entertaining games, not the same cliche
multiplayer game that asks for money at every turn.

You should have posted this in the Kongregate Forum if you wanted a real response.

I saw another topic related to this that was posted in ’09 so I figured I should post here.

Kinda hard to be sure any of those replies are true, As they seem (and probably are) like jokes.

EDIT: Joke replies, Before I couldn’t be sure, Now I’m sure >.<

Sorry if this is a stupid question, But being as I just play games here and don’t really read news I’m confused as to what happened to Greg’s Picks.

Topic: Game Programming / FlashDevelop

sounds too complicated for me :S
I’m going to attempt to finish the shootorials with Macromedia Flash MX, is there anything for that? cuase i’m stuck on shootorial #1 where you make the ship and i go to make my code file – whatever and i dont know what to add, it doesn’t let me just “Add” code, it wants me to enter a function or something, when i go through the list, theres like 100+ options, what do i pick? i suspect Actions>Movieclip Control but i dont know,
Hey, could i use flashdevelop to solve this by using it to make a separate codefile?

Topic: Game Programming / FlashDevelop

But the FAQ listed this as simply just another gaming program that can be used to make games but is free – And my CS4 trial expired days ago, I do have a macromedia trial on though.

Topic: Game Programming / FlashDevelop

Hi everyone, i decided to try out flash develop, but i dont know if theres a special flash-game tutorial to make flash games uploadable to kongregate using FlashDevelop, i’ve downloaded all components i thought necessary for flash games,
Also i liked to note i’m using AS 2.0,

Could someone link me to a tut or something?

Topic: Game Programming / Tower defence approach

Well, My response here involves game maker: Which means .exe, Which means no Kong uploading, but you could still upload to www.yoyogames.com if you wanted,

But if you’ll take Game Maker, Download it, then maybe figure out to make a basic game (Easy peasy)
then search for a tower defense tutorial on youtube, you’ll find one, trust me – also you dont need the full game maker to do this :P

Flash help – dont look to me
I just wanted to tell you about GM so that if you cant manage with flash, which you’ll probably manage, you could use this method,

Good luck.

Topic: Game Programming / Shootorial 1 Problem

Ok, I am using Macromedia Flash MX Trial to do my “Shoot” game, i plan on afterwards attempting to make what i’ll call a “Shoot Xtreme” game and upload it, but the reason i use MFMX is becuase my Adobe Flash CS4 Trial expired, i just started my Macromedia trial so i got about 30 days to make a few, but i’m stuck on Shootorial 1, at the line where i enter the code for the ship class i save my first stage (the one with the ship movieclip) and make a new, but then, i open a actionscript label, but dont know what function to enter, weather its action> Movieclip Control or what, i dont know what to enter,

Any help please?
