Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: New Search Results Page

In chat we were talking about max room numbers, and I remembered a thread that had some screenshots and searched for it. I’d forgotten about the update.
I looked for this thread and couldn’t find it either, because it was back so many pages.
The only way I finally found it, was remembering that Rolby posted in the thread and reading 3 pages of his shitposts until I found it.
I’ll be glad when there is, once again, a better way to search.

Possible BotD bug.
Upon loading up Portal Defenders for BotD, the standard Congratulations! you’ve earned blah blah blah message came up, as if it were a freshly awarded badge, instead of the usual BotD/Gamestop Power Up points popup that would happen before.
I received the points, just missing the notification.

Day 2 confirmed, same bug, or, perhaps you guys got rid of the Gamestop Power Up Rewards bonus points notification.

Topic: Technical Support / Kong Plus/ Power Up Rewards Pro problems

At the very very least, kong needs to lower the price of K+ significantly, since the Gamestop PUR deal vastly undermines and overrides the value of K+. It hurts a bit more since the PUR deal came out within a month of the first renewals for k+ charter members.

How could someone in the staff NOT see this as being an issue, unfair, and unethical? Did the company just put their blinders on? Oh wait, maybe they should have split-tested it… (/joke aboot how decisions are made).

If their shit was really together, they would have presented the PUR K+ information together before renewals or been upfront with the users.

100% agree. This is what my issue was. I felt like Kong intentionally fucked me, along with all the other original K+ members, over since they knew the changes were coming and that most would be renewing only two weeks before. They HAD to have known about the change and should have let us know. That being said, ZShawdow promptly pm’d me about the situation and assured me he would refund my money, so no further complaints there. I appreciate them listening and doing the right thing when they really didn’t have to.

As far as K+ goes, it’s “worth” so much less now. They depreciated the value of their own product.
I’ve already seen several 1 month old accounts, spammers, and small children rockin’ K+.

If K+ were a woman, she’d be an old whore. She used to be special, charge a high price, and cater to only the elite (admins, mods, and srs Kong users). Now, she puts out for free when anyone buys her a cheap dinner.
But in the end, I like the way that she looks, so I’ll continue to fuck with her.

Topic: Technical Support / Kong Plus/ Power Up Rewards Pro problems

The longer I sit here and think about this, the more it pisses me off.
Surely Kongregate knew about this bit of information when I bought not only one K+ subscription, a renewal for myself, but also a gift K+ sub. So that’s $59.98 that I paid in total. If I would have known that K+ was going to be given away for free with a Pro membership, I could have just paid $14.99 for a Pro membership as a gift instead, and used my free K+ from the Pro membership I already had.
I overpaid $44.99 and my anus hurts.

Topic: Technical Support / Kong Plus/ Power Up Rewards Pro problems

This actually pisses me off.
“A Pro membership is a paid membership for only $14.99”, which I already knew, because I’m a member. I never save jack shit with the card, but I do like the Game Informer magazine and having my account linked so I can earn the Power Up Rewards Points for BOTD. The thing is, I just paid $29.99 to renew my Kong+, so I feel like I’ve gotten fucked, paying for something that I would have gotten for free.

Topic: Kongregate / when will kong raise level limit

Really informative post, adv0. Such a miniscule amount of players would be affected, I can’t see Kong spending the time or resources to change the level cap.
I kind of have the same attitude towards playing games for the sole purpose of leveling up as wattro. If the game isn’t fun, I’m not going to play it. (fuck off, Swords & Potions)

Also, Galdos, your loser mentality sickens me.

Hello everyone. Basically there was a start and endpoint but there were obstacles and such in the way. What you had to do is get to the endpoint by making a path before the computer did. So you would make the path and press “go” or something and it would simulate. Eventually you had to beat 2 computers if I remember correctly. Thanks.

You’re welcome.

Topic: Kongregate / when will kong raise level limit

To reach level 65, you need 36,560 points.
There are currently 35,860 points from badges available.
So it isn’t quite evened out yet.
It would be cool if they raised it, but I doubt they will.

Topic: Kongregate / Information about the contest halloween

Awyeah, that’s a shame Kong isn’t doing the Halloween Design Contest this year.
I always had fun participating in them.

Edit
I asked trickyrodent about it, and this was his response, “Well, since we just did a contest for the 5th birthday, we thought we’d change it up a little. We’re definitely still going to be celebrating, just in a slightly different way. I’ll bear that in mind, though— we need to make sure the contest returns next year.”

Topic: Kongregate / One of the Top 25 Kongregators Permabanned

Hey adv0, You seem to know a lot about the topic, so how does that work with permabanned accounts? I’ve noticed that recently permabanned accounts still have their reg profiles up, while older ones are blank, with the “This user has been permanently banned” message across the top. Do all of their shouts and data get deleted, or just hidden?

K, never mind. I checked his forum posts, apparently, he asked for a permaban. :/
I don’t understand, why not just stop playing?

Topic: Kongregate / One of the Top 25 Kongregators Permabanned

Being the point whore that I am, I check the Top 25 list pretty often. I’m usually looking at their recently played, to piggyback rate off of them. I noticed today, that they guy who held #25 for a long time, JM74, has been permabanned. I just spoke to him two weeks ago, about rating games. He consistently rated 50 games a day, every day, so he was my go-to guy for ratings.

My Questions:
Does anyone know why such a high level K+ user was banned?
Will he be removed from the Top 25 list?

I tried to ask him myself, but you can’t pm permabanned users.

Topic: General Gaming / Papa's games

I’ve joked that the next game should be Papa’s Diarrhea, because all the games are shit. And Crown, it’s not as easy as “if you don’t like it don’t play it”, they get badged almost immediately, so srs Kong gamers are forced to play them. The games are repetitive, recycled bullshit and I’d be happy if I never had to play another one.

Topic: Kongregate / Does ad revenue HAVE to reach $25?

My fave dev, Sten123, told me that yes, indeed, you must reach the $25 mark to get a paycheck from Kong. Better beg for dem Kreds if you want to reach payout limit.

Oh, and level 30 is totally not halfway to the max. Level 65 takes ~38.5k points to get, give or take, if I’m not mistaken. Level 30 only takes about 5.5k. See the difference?

It takes 36,560 points to reach level 65. I know this, because I took a screenshot the moment I leveled up; but also, here is the post where some genius calculated the points needed to reach each level.

There was a random game suggestion right above the featured games back in the day. I liked it and I used it all the time.

Topic: Kongregate / Save game deleted on page refresh.

The Ice Temple is located in 0014\1555\, SH2 is in 0014\1094. I beat them this week, and now my save files are gone, as well.
My best explanation as to why sol files disappear: shit happens! Game updates, CC Cleaner, disc cleaner, a hungry zombie ghost has inhabited your computer, etc.
