Topic: Kongregate / SAS Zombie Assault 4: the worst timed challenge of all time?

I haven’t seen any lag problems on my side, but I did notice that some players have very long loading times. But that is still not “lag” since it’s only the loading. IMO The game itself isn’t terrible, in fact I gave it 4 stars (most promoted multiplayer games only get 2 or 3 from me…)

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

I am currently on 20,0,0,267, latest is 20,0,0,286, so it seems that it’s the Flash update. I didn’t update yet because on another website we got users reporting crashs/errors on one game after updating. Maybe it’s the same with CellCraft.

Maybe it depends on the version of Flash?

Errr… does it do that immediately after clicking on “Play game”? Because on my side it still works, I just finished levels 1-2 and am on level 3.

And according to highscores, there are at least some people able to play it.

Topic: Kongregate / [Event] Celebrating 2015!

You should change the order of the quests so that Best Of 2015 is with its friends :)

BTW, how do we get the award for all Kongpanions after completing the quest? Do we just have to wait?

Topic: Kongregate / Have you completed any impossible badges?

Got 30. In order:

2009: DTD, Streamline, Sonny 2, Pandemic 2, Necronomicon, Tower of Greed
2010: EBF2, Cell Warfare, Monsters’ Den
2011: Max Mesiria, Run 2, Frantic, Warlords: Heroes, Mardek 3, Meat Boy, Hexiom, Focus
2012: Mission in space, MAD, Vector Runner, Death vs Monstars 2
2013: Vertigo Gravity Llama, Frantic 3
2014: Epic Boss Fighter, Hippolyta, Cardinal Quest 2, oO, Rogue Soul 2, Amorphous+
2015: Bullet Heaven 2

In particular, I don’t understand why Cardinal Quest 2 and Mission in space seem so difficult to get given that it’s turn-based (no real-time/action skill needed), there are several possible strategies and then you still have quite a leeway when implementing it.

MoneySeize seems crazy, but so is Ultimate Assassin 3!

Do you have trouble installing the Flash Player, or running it? Because after the installation, you should be able to launch the arcade without interacting with the flash player app.

If I want that doghouse and not another one, and I don’t like other hammer manufacturers, I would simply keep using my old hammer from my favourite manufacturer. I surely didn’t throw away my good old hammer just because I bought the “upgraded version”.


About refusing Unity games:
But having a game unavailable to some people surely cannot be worse that having the same game unavailable to everybody? If there are issues for some people, even the majority, why should we screw up those without issues? If people are really really annoyed and don’t want to use a workaround (e.g. another browser), that will simply go into the ratings (and ratings influence the presence of badges). There are many games that the majority don’t like for whatever reason. But that doesn’t mean we should remove them. Some people may like it. Let us not try to decide what’s best fot the user. Let the user decide what’s the best for him. Having more choices is always better, isn’t it?

 

BTW that’s what annoys me the most with all newer versions of browsers: they tend to hide more and more all the options from the user. I don’t want “them” to choose for me. I want to be in control and have exactly what I want. They can suggest, they can advise, tell me the consequences, but I’m the user, I should be the one to decide. And if I screw up due do a bad decision, that’s my fault, not theirs. If there are not 100.00% confident that decision X is what all users really want, it has to be overrideable (and they can declare it unsupported).
Practical examples: Chrome, stop blocking my downloads for “security reasons” when I perfectly know it is safe because I created the files I’m downloading, dumbass. Where are the whitelist settings? Or Firefox, stop changing my UI without my consent when it is possible to get back to what I had (so that was not due to incompatibility issues). No, I won’t do the whole list of browsers. ;-)

I feel it is luck-based only because of the saw timing thing. So this is only for some specific levels, mainly 29-30 (and I did die a lot on these because of that v_v).
I am currently at lv 39 and from 31+ luck is not really relevant, I know what I want to do, I know it will work, I just have to wait for the good window (and try not to screw up).

The only thing preventing me from supporting badging it is that the timing for sawblades and axes do not reset when you die. This introduces pseudo-randomness that shouldn’t be present at all for this kind of games.

(Anyway, no pun with Tass/TAS?)

It absolutely doesn’t work “perfectly”. It works for come people/configs, and not for some others. That’s not the definition of “fixed” or “perfectly”.

Today (after more than 20 trials total), I finally managed to play to the end without freezing/crashing the browser. I was using Chrome, no extension, anonymous mode. During the play, I saw that memory consumption exceeded 1G of RAM (and I had nothing else open in Chrome!). Good luck trying to get the badges, don’t forget to pray/cast a spell/invoke a genie so that it doesn’t crash before the end.

Is the dev working on the bugfixes? Firefox still doesn’t work at all, and with Chrome I always have a crash (the “aw, snap!”) during the game, before the 4th or 5th choice. I haven’t been able to finish it even once!

It is randomized.

You will need to use external websites but they are either “obvious” (= the website is at least implicitly mentioned somewhere in the game, you don’t have to guess where to go), or “not specific” (= you don’t need one particular website, you just need to get some info you may not know and there are many different ways to get it)

To be fair I didn’t get a single black screen /freeze in Decision 3 (I did in Decision 2). Neither did I rate it 5/5 but that’s because IMO a game should be about content and not grinding.

And we should all know that Strikeforce Shitty 2 is a really well-designed game. After all, it has a huuuge number of plays which is hard evidence. Moreover, as said in the description, we can enjoy “Over 6 hours of gameplay”. Though I’m still wondering whether he’s missing a digit in this sentence.

So, next badge?

Prince of Persia doesn’t “really” count given that the badges were converted to points (and the badges do not appear on the profile), so 827 easy badges.

Topic: Technical Support / Kongpanion didn't earned(solved)

Do we really need to send a report (that would be a lot of reports) or are you already working on an automated mass fix?
