Topic: Technical Support / Do they change badges needed for quests?

Sometimes the badges in quests are switched out if one of the games breaks or the API stops functioning correctly. In this case, greg started a thread asking for input on what games to choose to replace the broken Fancy Pants Adventures game, and in this post he said that it was being replaced by Fancy Pants Adventure: World 3 in the “Your First Quest” quest, and by Anika’s Odyssey in the Best of 2007 quest. If you earned the quest with the original set of badges, it remains earned, even though you might not have had the badge it was switched out for.

Topic: Kongregate / Extended Leaderboards: Top 834,293 [Updated: March 28th, 2015]

It definitely is better than nothing, thanks for getting a more updated list than my last one. I’d definitely encourage someone else to take over this project, if it’s something that people are still interested in, as I most likely won’t be getting many, if any, more updates out.

Does it matter when the game only has one easy badge? If it was the medium on oO getting botd… then I could understand. But 5-10 minutes in another browser… no. That seems ok. Also this is upcoming badges and not the botd thread.

oO isn’t the best of example games to bring up, considering the impossible badge on it only takes 10 minutes to earn from a fresh save file (I replayed it a couple weeks after getting the badges and it only took that long from a new save), so the time argument doesn’t quite work there. That being said, they’ve been allowed in the past even after the whole OS debate with them (not being able to earn on Linux), and this is just a more mild version of that argument, since it’s (arguably) easier to just get a second browser for some games than a second OS.

Topic: Kongregate / Will Kongregate celebrate its 100,000th game?

To have 100,000 games on the site at once might be a big event, but there have been more than that many total games uploaded already (just that many of them have been removed). I remember that there were lots of specially made and named games around the 10,000 mark, so it’s possible that that could happen again with this number.

Chances are fairly low. I’ve been extremely inactive on the site for the past month and a bit (essentially no forum or chat activity) due to school and real life circumstances, and haven’t been feeling up to the task of dealing with my internet not wanting to cooperate all of the time (the past few times I’ve tried to get an updated list it failed).

Like Lou said, you can somewhat throw Friz into that category (though he’s since left), as well as, Maks, Spes, and Colder. There are a few others with a decent number of badges too.

One things that shouldn’t be too difficult to code regarding the friends page ( http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/usernamehere/friends ): Search feature. I have over 400 friends and I want to know if one specific person has added me back as a friend (the star on the friends page notes that). That means I have to go through 24 pages of people to find the one specific guy. If there was a search feature, it would take me maybe 10 seconds or less.

A slightly obnoxious workaround, but you can use a json query to find out what you want. For example, if I wanted to see if you’ve added me, I’ll go to http://www.kongregate.com/api/user_info.json?username=bluji&friends=true and use control+f to search for my name, since it shows up it means you’ve added me. Just query the user you want to know about, and search for your name in their friends list. Unfortunately, I don’t believe that it works for private profiles.

Topic: Kongregate / Why are kongpanions so useless?

Originally posted by Joseph_Victorian:

I can’t explain my affinity towards Kongpanions but my hope is that they’re recycled at some point. They can’t go on forever, can they?

They may have additional runs thorough like Kongai cards did, or they may just end, as far as I know it hasn’t been fully disclosed what the final plan for them is.

Links to threads.

You said that “Everyone thinks the forum is for in-game support,” and then show that something like 12% of threads (10 of the last 86 threads, it drops to a different percent if you continue to look for the next one as well) are related to specific games and not just the site. To me that seems like it’s quite far from being everyone (it may also be far from being no one, but still it cannot be claimed that it’s an overwhelming majority or anything like that).

This thread has sort of morphed into the place to discuss the newest set of badges as well, the one you linked has been dead for quite some time now.

Topic: Technical Support / HOW TO RE-ENABLE UNITY ON CHROME

The issue with this is that it is not a solution, since the problem still exists and will need to be fully addressed eventually. It’s probably in your best interest to just switch over sooner so that you can get used to a new browser. There are themes you can download for Firefox to make it look like Chrome if you’d like anyways.

The sheet definitely needs an update, it’s just that the past few weeks have all been busy in one way or another (Easter, internet didn’t want to fully cooperate, out of town a few times, moving from one city to another, etc). I’ll try soon though.

If you go to report it as a missing achievement it should be awarded to you. I haven’t been able to connect this morning either, but I reported it as missing and it was given to me instantly.

Kreds are worth real currency, so they will not be given away in that sort of way. Feel free to try some of the TrialPay offers to earn some, if you want to get some without paying.

Topic: Kongregate / Konpanion Question

I think that they were implemented with the hope that external developers (ones not employed by Kongregate) would find some use for them in their games, but that hasn’t happened a whole lot, for various reasons. Kongregate’s own developers have been making some games that use them, and could very well continue doing so, but that’s still to be seen. Right now they’re basically being treated as Kongai cards were, something that can be used in a game, but really just something that most people collect for the sake of collecting.

Topic: Technical Support / Useless question

This is some text in a paragraph. Probably something to do with the system not being updated perfectly in real time, so if multiple people were added quickly in succession (like from the miniprofile in chat) they’d sneak through before it realized that the limit has been surpassed. It’s not a physical maximum anyways, more an imposed limit, the system initially had no limit, but one was added when Add_me started breaking things (as you can see, he has 5,067 friends, and his profile mentions the message he received when the limit was added).

Originally posted by TheLinkToThePast:

Just out of curiosity(I don’t mean this in a berating way or anything), but how much work would it be to have each avatar have a hyperlink to that person’s profile? If it isn’t that much, could you do it?

I don’t really think that’s possible, since it’s currently all one image, and Kongregate broke the ability to put images beside each other in the forums, so it wouldn’t be possible to make a nice looking wall out of individual images in order to add links to each avatar.

Topic: Kongregate / Connecting to Facebook.

I don’t think that people can find your FaceBook account from the linked Kongregate account, but people can find your Kongregate account from your linked FaceBook account. By that I mean that if you have any friends on FaceBook who also have Kongregate accounts linked to their FaceBook, they can find your account here.
