Topic: Kongregate / All games that kreds can be used in should have save files backed up by Kongregate

This would be an awesome feature for Kong Plus.

I think a lot of people would actually consider Kong Plus if they advertised this feature.

It could also be a feature for certain games that have premium content.

So, after Joemeleon and Nikhil, Dharma will be the third reference to a Kong admin, right? hides

I like it, it’s got a different flavor to other Panions.

Easy, beat stage 1.

Topic: Kongregate / KongChat Should be/Not be add with Kong+

Sorry, but, either you are not explaining yourself very well. As in you mixing up the words KongBot and KongChat… but you are saying only Kong Plus people can use the Chat, right?

If that is what you are saying, then

NO.

If that is not what you are saying, what are you saying?

Explain your idea again, so it is clear.

Obviously.


It’s pretty ridiculous to name a Kongpanion after an administrator, in my opinion.

Nonsense, if they continue this route I would want the Honey Badger to be named Tim Greg for a list of reasons.

1. Greg hangs out in Honey Badger
2. Greg makes badges and a Honey *Badge*r really.
3. Honey Badgers are bad ass animals, Greg is a bad ass administrator.

Honey Badger

Dat logic.

You want Kongbot? or Kong Chat?

Your title says KongChat.

If you want the Kongpanion “Kongbot” for people that buy Kong+… meh. I guess I don’t really care if people can buy Kongpanions.

Sure why not.

For every year of Kong+ you buy you can buy a Kongpanion that stays unlocked as long as you are Kong+. (if you don’t resubscribe they get locked again)

Sounds fine to me.

The church needs to seperate from the colony. So there can’t be any connecting squares to the church. To get the ending quickly start sending your people off on suicide missions, to the edge of the map with no back up to kill zombies. The hordes will come and kill people and take your buildings.

I got the embrace zombism ending with 9 people left in my colony and 30 buildings. I did get the large crypt but I didn’t read the helicopter book. The developer asked me if I did three things to get the ending, I believe the fourth would be separating church from state.

Don’t ban the book
Allow somebody to preach in the church
kill the dissenters
seperate the church from the rest of your buildings (very important)

I’ve gotten this ending a bunch of times now, and this was never a requirement. My church was always connected to my main fort.

Maybe the church just has to be on the edge of the fort?

Right now in my save file I trying to survive with the constant people killing themselves.

I’ve gone over 100 days with this constant suiciding, constant celebrations (no one doing any work!), and hordes over and over.

The entire town is in overrun red status.

The end is near.

Topic: General Gaming / Dungeon Defender - Hard Mode

I liked the game, I should try some hard mode.

Usually I just go…

Map 1 = Goblins + Centaurs
Map 2 = Goblins + Centaurs
Map 3 = Centaurs + Mino
Map 4 = Mino + Manticore
Map 5 = Manti + Vamp
Map 6 = Vampire + Lich
Map 7 = Lich + Elemental
Map 8 = Elemental + Special Unit

And reset your upgrades for each map to concentrate on buffing those units for the next map. Concentrate more on the ranged shooters.

Also have two bugs.

1) If you buy the first 2 spike trap upgrades, you can skip to upgrading the 4th row upgrade. (I haven’t checked this for all characters, just the archer)

2) If you have two tiles of dirt on a diagonal, your hero avatar can squeeze through it. In this way you can build short cuts through your own death maze that enemies can’t reach. Only helps on Ranger and Mage only, of course. Kind of a ghost knight effect for them.

Looks like there are some others sending more requests than just F5’s

If this site freezing is becoming a problem, I think Kong needs to set a random start time for the monday BOTD.

Just make the BOTD appear at random the day before, but don’t let people know what the BOTD might be either.

That should stop the site freezing.

Topic: Off-topic / So...what anti-virus do you use?

Also, for myself, a firewall is extremely important. Anti virus is good if you do risky things on the net, but if a firewall is necessary just to be connected to the internet.

I’d suggest people use Outpost firewall, or even better (but more complex) use Comodo.

If you think of your PC as creature that has to defend itself from its environment, a firewall is like your skin. Anti-virus is like anti-bodies / white blood cells.

You need both.

Topic: Kongregate / High Scores are useless because there are so many cheaters.

Easy way to beat cheaters Kongregate could do.

Introduce upper limits to high scores. (impossible limits, say, there are only 35 gold trophies in a game, but someone gets 99)

By introducing upper limits to the high score you can catch cheaters.

If a player ever gets caught 3 times with an impossible high score, have all scores of that person never be shown to anyone else.

He can see his scores, and it should look like the score goes through, but no one else can see his scores.

This would be quite easy to implement at least at the basic level of catching them since it would be quite easy to have the high scores have a limit.

A lot of cheaters don’t even know the game they are cheating well enough to know such limits.

This would eradicate the majority of cheats.

For many I think it is, but for me it seems normal. I may end the relationship on too much of a non-closing note that tends to invite them back. Especially around Valentines the ex’s tend to come sniffing around.

Topic: Kongregate / Should Kongai be taken down

I would’ve liked to see some daring updates to the game’s mechanics instead of kind of forgetting about it.

The update I would have like a bunch would have been an update to reduce the amount of luck and massive randomness through the game.

(yes I am aware of the traditional argument that the game is so simple it needs randomness so it’s not ‘solvable’. I disagree with that conclusion.)

Topic: Off-topic / Stopping Spammers from advertising in 'comments'

Any requirement you make to make it hard for spammers has to also not make it hard for legitimate people who are level 1 or 2.

You have to weigh the negative effects, against the positive effects.

So, across all of Kongregate, how many legitimate level 1 players who ask for helps or make honest comments, versus how many spammers are there?

Keep in mind that any limit you set to spammers, they can easily figure out a way to get past it, while an honest player commenter will not take the time to figure out the right level (or whatever limit you want to set).

Does anyone know how to synchronize our clocks to Kongregate’s clocks so we can get the medals at the exact right time?

Topic: Kongregate / [New Feature] Introducing Kongpanions!

I have a question: how can we sync our clock with Kong time?

And an idea, there should be a Kong game that takes into account all the following Kong stuff.

1) Kongpanions
2) Kong level. Make the only way to level up in the game, by leveling up on Kong
3) Badges, maybe these give you special powers in the game. (quests too)
4) Idle like
5) Also uses Kongai Cards and other awards through the years, kind of like badges. Or maybe they can act like “Assists” cards.
6) Maybe the number of friends/fans also has some sort of effect.

Put this all together into 1 game.

Maybe like a Pokemon type game.

You earned the easy badge at 11:45:26 pm last night, but the medium (which was the BotD) at 12:44:41 am this morning, this is something that was discussed in another thread. Basically, you opened the game when it was still the BotD, so when you did get the medium badge your client still assumed it was the BotD, so the message appeared, but when it sent the data to the server, th server knew it was no longer the BotD, so you weren’t given the Kongpanion. It’s the correct thing for the site to do. If you’re going for a BotD, make sure to earn it before midnight PST.

That’s kind of what I expected, but oh well.

It would be nice if they could program it to not do that, OR, to at least still grant the award for 1 or 2 hours past the time limit.

A 2 hour extension would be perfect in my opinion. That would cover most any badge that gets BOTD.

One more little bug with Kongpanions.

I was just playing
http://www.kongregate.com/games/MostroGames/kamikaze-pigs
for the badge of the day (24th)

And I did get the badge
http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/FateIsEscaped/points
and it did pop up with the You Got Kongpanion dealio… but I didn’t get the Kongpanion?

You’ll see that I didn’t here:

Any ideas?
