Is it true that mods can adjust our points into negative integers?

(If so, give me -80085 points please lol.)

You can contact a community admin (IAmTheCandyman, trickyrodent, or JohannasGarden) and they can do that for you, mods can’t.

Topic: Kongregate / Recommended Games Outdated

If you want to see the recommended games change, you can force them to change by rating the ones already there (the system should only recommend games that you have not rated, though it has been known to occasionally recommend rated games), or manually remove them by hovering over them and clicking the ‘x’ in the corner.

Topic: Kongregate / February '15 Suggestion Thread

Originally posted by Roolet:

I’d like to see the Playlist function as an actual playlist, a-la iTunes. Let me set the playlist game order, and play through them in sequence every time I visit. I want to make sure that every game on my “daily” patrol gets a visit. Currently I have to go back to my playlist for each game. I’d rather just be able to hit “Next game” from the actual gameplay screen and move on to the next one on my playlist cycle. Otherwise there’s no real difference between Playlist and Favorites.

Playlists are different in the sense that they’re private while favourites can be made public, and the playlist is meant more to just hold games temporarily as you see them in passing to remind yourself to try them out later. It would be interesting to see your suggestion implemented, though.

Well, doesn’t really mean much in terms of placements, but it’s a score improvement:

House of Dead Ninjas: 333

Didn’t get an update out last weekend because of the holiday long weekend that I spent mostly away from my computer, but it’s updated now.

Another improvement, now that I’ve actually learned some strategy and realized that there was a mechanic that I didn’t know about beforehand:

House of Dead Ninjas: 291

Bumps me up a couple spots, probably happy enough with the scores I have for the time being:

It seems that whoever is updating the spreadsheet missed my scores yesterday, so I would appreciate if they were added.

As well, I did get a slightly better score in one game, so might as well add it now:

House of Dead Ninjas: 188

Now I remember why I don’t enter these things, I don’t really find repeatedly playing games that I don’t find too enjoyable to be a great use of time (at least with badged games I can get something out of it).

Diamond Hollow: 786
Warning Foregone: 602,696
House of Dead Ninjas: 56

I’ll probably improve these a bit later on, but at least I have something submitted now.

Topic: Kongregate / tranfering kreds after purchase

Within the game there should be a button that says “Get GP, CR, SP” near the left side of the screen that comes up when you load the game, when you click it you get the options to spend your Kreds on in-game currencies.

Topic: Kongregate / Little Alchemist "Reduce prices" petition!

As Tukkun said, if you think they’re overpriced you don’t have to buy them. They’ve priced them like that because they see that there are people willing to spend that much, so unless they have reason to believe that they’ll get enough new buyers by lowering the price (if they half the price they need to double the sales, which is not guaranteed to happen), they’re probably happy with what they’ve currently set things at.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: New navigation changes

Not a fan of how updates to the profile nav bar have continuously pushed points out of the view (initially everyone saw their points, then people would either see how many they need to level up or their total if they reached the cap, now they aren’t there at all), but I guess since it’s already shuffled off to the “My Kong” tab it’s not like it’s only visible from one specific location on the site anymore (which happened with a few things after this and previous updates).

I know it’s been said before, but it’d be nice if we could choose some things for ourselves, like maybe someone doesn’t use the playlist (example, I don’t), so they could remove that from the nav bar and insert something else they’d like there (maybe a link to their Kreds page, or their points page, or whatever). Same goes with the quick links to forums, allow us to choose which ones are pinned to the top (like how we can pin certain chatrooms to the top of the rooms list), and as well with games (maybe I want to have newest and puzzle games pinned there, while neither are there right now).

Topic: Technical Support / Forum post html formatting problem (SOLVED)

You have too many hyphens, you can remove everything from the link but the relevant numbers to save some characters (for example, this thread could be expressed as http://www.kongregate.com/forums/7/topics/470839), and the rest can be replaced with some other character if you still have too many.

• Changing the page layout and design to better fit the “new look” (I say new because the friend/fan page layout hasn’t changed in many years, if not, ever.) for Kongregate.

I agree with these points, especially since sorting options have been available for friends and fans when using the Arcade app since it was released a few years ago, so there’s no reason not to have those features on the main site as well.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Originally posted by greg:

Earning stars is weird, and I’m not even 100% sure how it works. You get more stars for more kills, right? But what if your teammates do a lot of killing? Does that prevent you from getting stars?

I figured 20 was fine because you’re guaranteed 1 per mission and you’ll probably get more than that here and there just by accident, but I didn’t think that an actually hard badge for collecting stars would be much fun. I did consider it, though.

You would get more credits for more kills, as well as more for doing other special things (double/triple/etc kills, I think maybe headshots, capturing points, capturing flags, etc), and then the number of credits you go would determine the number of stars you earn. It would be a bit luck based if you had teammates that stole your kills, but that would be part of the challenge (be able to efficiently get kills, not just sit back and camp), and I wouldn’t have really been opposed to it. It would mean more effort, since, like I said, you can camp on most levels by sitting in the corner and not really doing anything (wait for the AI to wander under a platform or ledge and then use a burrow weapon or jump around the corner every so often to take cheap shots, they rarely will actually go after you when you do this).

I’ve been vindicated! …sort of. It’s probably still too long to be a medium badge, but yeah, it’s really not difficult.

Yeah, too long for a medium, but I feel like some sort of star requirement would have also been nice for the hard badge, not necessarily getting all 90, but considering I finished with 67 I could see some added difficulty in requiring more. I suppose it’s too late for that now (and I don’t know if the API even supports that).

If you have an issue with The Last Stand: Dead Zone, it’s best to use their forum rather than the general site technical support one.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

So either I’ve really gotten good at Raze games since the previous one, or the hard badge on the new one was just an absolute joke. No going back to do previous levels was required, no putting any significant effort towards getting any number of stars on any level, just normal playing through. It helps that the AI on your team isn’t as bad anymore, and that the enemy AI half of the time will stand still and not see you when you’re on a ledge above them, so you can hop around the edge to get easy kills or use the burrowing weapons with no worry.


As for your proposed upcoming badges for The Enchanted Cave 2, I’d be alright with those I guess. If you’re going to have a badge focused on enchanting, you have to find some way to slip in a reference to Tim the Enchanter (or use it for any badge really, since the game’s name has enchanted in it).
