Wikipedia thinks you should give them money.

I think you should give me some money.

Ergo, you should tip my games. Kreds are awesome. :|

Topic: Game Programming / Recalling stats from the High Score

After submitting some arbitrary stat, whatever it may be, to Kong’s high score system… Is there some way to recall this number back into the game?

For example:
kongregate.stats.submit(“Coins”,1);

Is there now a way to recall this stat ONLY from the Kong server into the game, thus telling me exactly what number of “Coins” are now in the high score?

Topic: Game Programming / Negative "add" statistic?

Okay it definitely works exactly as subtracting a negative. Its just hard to tell because of the delay on score updates.

Topic: Game Programming / Negative "add" statistic?

Whoa whoa whoa… Now Im confused. Someone has a negative score now. How on earth did THAT happen? It only gives a max score for absolute value..? Because I can’t seem to get my score negative now that its positive…

Scratch ALL of that info. Sometimes it displays a maximum score, sometimes it subtracts. I…. errr….. I dont understand this but okay. Someone else make sense of it..?

Topic: Game Programming / Negative "add" statistic?

Well it still works for what I want to use it for. I mean I’d prefer that it DISPLAYED how much is subtracted, but at least it will prevent the scores from getting any higher.

Topic: Game Programming / Negative "add" statistic?

Huh. Interesting results actually… I THINK (not 100% sure on this) but it looks like if my score is at 1000, and then I subtract 100, it won’t DISPLAY 900. But it won’t show a higher score until it is back up to over 1000!

So that answers that question. :)

Topic: Game Programming / Negative "add" statistic?

Itll be a piece of crap, but Im gonna throw out a cheap little game in the next 10 minutes just to check it…
Edit: http://www.kongregate.com/games/AngryCyc/subtractable-score

Looks like it doesn’t subtract when the score is negative.

Topic: Game Programming / Negative "add" statistic?

If I report an “add” stat as a negative number, will the total number decrease? For example, Let’s say I had a highscore stat on a game that some user had 300 for. If I then report a stat as

“kongregate.stats.submit(”highscore",-100);"

will it then drop down to 200?

Dang I still cant get on. How did the castle battles work with multiple allies there? Were they all on the field at once?

When you send a hero to defend a guild members castle, the message displays NULL. Same for when you send a hero away from your castle.

Try making a submit stats to kongregate button. The game will remained disconnected until you press that button, then it will submit the badge/highscore stats to the server.

Orginally said by greg:

Please connect in the first frame. As seen in the Johnny Rocketfingers games, it IS possible to connect at the same time that a statistic is reported, late in the game. However, this can be confusing to the user (since the light in chat will be red, even when it’s working properly), and it’s also a pain for me to test, since I have to personally beat the entire game just to see if the game is able to connect to us at all.

First 5 seconds of game Test Stat “Yes, game connects” Disconnect, reconnect later when needed.

Greg basically gets a list of every stat the game provides. All he needs is the first one to be relatively soon so that he can test if it actually connects. No problems there with my idea.

And the point was to be able to DISCONNECT it after the stat is sent so that it can not be manipulated by hackers.

Topic: Kongregate / Question/Idea

Will it? seems like it would conserve server-ness… seeing as there would be a lot less time of actual linked-ness.

Its like those hybrid cars that switch over to electric when you reach cruising speed to conserve gas. At the moment it seems like it will waste server, but over all it will save it and actually make things faster and smoother!

Topic: Kongregate / Question/Idea

Ah. So you see? Its all about how and where the Developers put in the particular code. In FACT! (thinks harder…) if we did it the way i just described, than it wouldnt matter if you got disconnected from the internet! So long as you reconnected before you finished the level/sat/time/whatever..! If it connected, highscored, disconnected rapidly each time, you have less chance of not getting a badge due to the API not reconnecting after losing the connection!

It takes you a minute to synch? Even with massive chat lag, longest Ive ever seen in on one of my games that linked mid-game was a few milliseconds. Not even long enough to count. The only reason it usually takes a long time to synch is because most developers put it at the very beginning of the game while all its preloader and engine crap are loading… which makes it SEEM like it takes a long time to load.

Topic: Kongregate / EPIC WEEK!!

No no… the only chance of badgers my games will have I think is going to be in Time-Travel month… When I release a one new game every single day, all about time travel, for the entire month. I’ll just stockpile all my games til then to actually pull it off…..

(Notw: Time-Travel month hasnt been specifically established yet.. so Um. Cut me some slack if I dont have that many games done until next year or so…)

I really feel like “Epic Week” is just being phoned in. No special banners. No extra challenges. Just a bunch of overly easy badges added to games with the gimmick of being very, very odd. And, of course, there’s the fact that the badges are added at seemingly random times. I miss the polish and air of organization and planning that came with Buried Treasure Week.

I’m pretty sure I’m gonna take a lot of flak for this, so this is preemptive: Screw you guys, I’m going home…

Yet, another who either failed to actually read and comprehend the first post or just failed to read it.

Yet another post from Eyedol bagging someone else’s post, rather than commenting on what the thread is supposed to be about.
lols at the irony of my own post

I completely agree with this… and yet.. I myself have no idea what epic week is. Maybe I should go read the beginning of this or something, since Ive been Off-Kong for a month or so and am apparently out of the loop.

But I had to support my lover HA here…. Your game is almost done and is looking quite epic-tastic btw. Best MuteButton game so far…

Topic: Kongregate / Question/Idea

Thought about putting this in programming, but seems like it might be more of an Entire Kongregate kind of thing…

Is there currently, or can it be made so that there is, a way to break off the API linked-thingy and then later re-link it?

I ask because this might be an easy fix for some of the hacking that results in astoundingly high scores. Maybe Im wrong on all the various means of hacking since Ive never actually tried any of them, but would they have time to hack fake scores and stats if they literally only had milliseconds?

My thought is for certain games, have a set area/time/condition for a stat to be sent through the highscores of Kong, and to only link the API at that moment. And as soon as the stat is set, un-link it.

Does this exist, should it exist, or is it a bad idea effected by my lack of haxx0ring knowledge..?

Topic: Kongregate / What program do you use to create a game and how do you get it?

So… The Flash program I use cost me $150, and has a HIGHLY simplified set up allowing a few things to be MUCH easier for first-time flashers. Granted, I can’t make a game like Sonny on it. But for someone looking to just get their hands wet for the first time and see what they can actually make, I’d recommend Alligator

Again, I feel the need to repeat it is definitely NOT on the same level as Adobe. But if youre just looking to make a game for the first time, I’d suggest using that and trying off with a nice little Point-and-click. Check out the tutorials there and they’ll show you some very easy to follow instructions on the actual coding to use. As you work more with it, you can start to incorporate more and more complicated coding into it.

But really, if you want something cheap and easy, this is the way to go. If youre creative and insightful enough to be actually making games, you should be able to take the simplicity of it and turn it into something good after a few months to a year.

You have copied his profile, avatar, and are using a name that is distinctly similar to his.

Let us also note your age and gender are the same as his and you have only ever shown attention to a thread created by him.

You left the “what rule I have broken” part out of your post.

I didn’t even know that he started this thread. I just came here after someone gave me a link in chat after learning KoR was demodded. Then I read everyone’s posts talking about how great of a mod he was, when my personal experience was quite the opposite.


You obviously made your account to harass AngryCyc….


And have I been harassing him? I haven’t as far as I know.

Yes. :|
