Anyway, I noticed today that oO is receiving main page promotion, which is pretty cool and I assume bodes well for the possibility of badges in its future. Incidentally, the rating is on the correct side of the 3.75 divide again. It still doesn’t have visible API; is that coming by any chance?


I just don’t see Oo getting badges for some reason, probably due to a delay in the dev adding api.

Seems that API is now in place.

Topic: Kongregate / [How To] Get Kongregate Arcade to work on PC

Is this still working? I can install Flash and Kong App but when I start a game I only have a black screen, with no message/crash.

Edit: Yes, I have the same thing as Lloyd_Majere. He hadn’t bumped yet when I began writing this message. Talk about a coincidence…

Maybe Bluestacks upgraded their Android version and we need an older version of Bluestacks?

Topic: Kongregate / missing achivement reports - feedback

Of course a copy of the ticket would be really nice, especially if you screw up something in the report :)
At least so you don’t have to keep a copy of the screenshots “just to be sure” until the badge is awarded.

But… I am already receiving an automatic email each time they fix the problem (along with the “Sorry with the mixup!…” automatic announcement), so I’m not sure what you’re talking about for the second email “when the problem is resolved” :? Maybe check your account settings for email notifications?

Kongregate Announcement

Jul 7, 2014 11:08am

Hi Arcanmster!
Sorry for the mixup! Your missing Rise to Power for BloodRealm Mobile has just been awarded to your account. Cheers!

Report submitted on Jul 6, so it should still work as usual. Maybe they are simply busy.

The cache is kinda funny, I haven’t played Creeper World 3 (yet), so two unearned badges, and only one of them has the Unity logo here. xD

Topic: Technical Support / Recently broken: Opening badge of the day in new tab

I’ve just tested several of those problematic links on Google Chrome and IE. Right-click does open the contextual menu each time, but middle-click still opens the link (each time) in the same tab instead of a new tab. So half of it is working! (or half of it is broken, depending on your mood…)

Topic: Technical Support / Recently broken: Opening badge of the day in new tab

Achievement menu, /badges, /recommended: Problem confirmed.

Home page, in the “featured games” box:
- Links related to BOTD on the kongpanion subpage are working correctly

Home page, in the “trending” panel:
- Today’s 2x points: the link on the image works correctly (I’ve already earned the BOTD if it matters)
- Popular: the link on the image and the link on the game’s name both have the issue (opens in the same tab)
- Comment: same issue as “Popular”

Home page, in the “recommended badges” panel:
- BOTD links work correctly, both on badge name and game name.

In the profile page, kongpanion panel, the links in the calendar (“play now to get a head start”) do work correctly.

Topic: Technical Support / Newly added badges don't appear

Hi,

Just to say that things have changed a little bit here (Belgium, 0:25 local time UTC+2) – the chat tab is still showing high score tables, but its title is now “Achievements” and not “High Scores”. The usual link to switch between both is not there. The two badges of Pixelo are now shown in the right panel under the game, but they are not (yet) earnable.

It’s quite funny to see a mix between high scores and achievements :) I’ll check again later. I’m not in a hurry.

(Using Kong English, Firefox/Chrome/IE are all showing the same thing)

Topic: Technical Support / Recently broken: Opening badge of the day in new tab

I assume Alsee is talking about the BOTD in the “Achievement menu”.

In that case, I confirm I have the same issue : any-clicking (left/middle/right) on the badge of the day opens the game in the same tab. Links under “recently badged games” are fine (middle-click opens in a new tab and right-click opens the contextual menu, which are indeed my browser settings).

This happens EVEN if I freeze my tab even though, by definition (per my browser settings), links in a frozen tab are supposed to be always opened in a new tab, even with the simple left-clicking.

So there’s really something special with this pseudo-link in particular.

(Firefox 29.0.1)

Is there anything special with Pixelo badges? I can see them on the badge list page but not on Pixelo’s page, even with cache disabled. No badge list, no achievements tab. No badge earned even after playing some more levels. :(

There is a major problem with the time-attack quests: when there are too many mobs on screen, the game lags and slows down but the timer continues to count down at the same speed => some quests become nearly impossible to complete as you may effectively have less than 50% of the official time.

game completion definitely gets a hard badge. One time i was fighting the boss and suddenly became immortal….alive with 0 hp, took a lot of hits…i eventually died but im not sure if i accidentally picked up a healing potion that made it possible for me to die or not. I also do not know what made me immortal, but it was extremely slow killing him as i wasnt quite maxed out yet and the only one alive on the team. really think the boss needs toned down a little.

Dunno if it’s related but I got an immortal monster in a campaign level… no health bar, doesn’t attack, but you can’t kill it nor finish the level.

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

To be fair, I used the sounds to have an idea of what’s coming “arrows/arrows from behind/some guy/…” but I relied on visuals to decide when and which key to press. And normally there’s enough time to press the correct key after you see the hoplite/farmer/duelist/first arrow, at max speed. But it’s still better to slow down with several combos involving arrows.

I wouldn’t be able to finish the game using only audio cues, and fortunately you don’t need to be able to recognize all voices.

Yeah, I was implicitly meaning “it greg wants to add badges, if the developer updates the API to add more stats, etc.” :)

The api only reports something when you’ve completed all the levels. That in itself would be an impossible badge, but I don’t think that would be good, because it’s very easily obtained with a walkthrough (way easier than Pandemic 2).
So for it to receive badges, it would need more api stats, like you mentioned.

I don’t think completion is hard enough for an impossible. Contrary to many puzzle games, there are many possible solutions to each level, including solutions with totally different strategies. However, I do agree with the fact that the game is walkthrough-able → definitely don’t put an impossible badge, maybe more easier badges for “discovering” the game. That is, if it gets badged…

And for comparison, there’s already an impossible that can be aquired in around five minutes, but finishing this game isn’t as hard as the perfect run in stremline.

That depends, for me Streamline was much easier than Hippolyta ^^"

Stop sprinting for a split second and tap the next button a few times so you’re sure she does that command

Phew, just finished level 5. Indeed, slowing down is kinda useful, you don’t really need to sprint during the whole level.

I don’t remember my total number of trials, but I have outran between 10 and 20 riders. The game was challenging (“damned, got the 100 fails achievement”), and I’d go for “impossible”. This would clearly not be among the hardest impossibles, but there are quite a few impossibles that are easier (including the EBF one).

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

I’m currently at level 5. Is there a trick for chained obstacles? I mean, I can enter the commands fast enough but Hippolyta doesn’t follow, for example when I’m tapping ↓ to dodge a tree, she hasn’t finished putting back her shield from the previous arrow obstacle (or “reloading” the javelin from the farmer obstacle) and so she doesn’t crouch before it’s too late.

For this impossible, it is normal for the first bullet that hits me to do 5 bars of damage in endless insane mode? Or is this a bug?

Edit: Actually, it seems most shots do 5 bars with a few that do 3 or 1. And it is not present in endless mode. (They all seem to do 3.)

I think it also increases with the number of bosses killed in the run, so it depends when you got hit for the first time.

Dunno how that works exactly, I’ve just played the “game” until lv10+ but saw nothing. I think the challenge is not available (at least for me).
