Topic: Kongregate / $0 Revenue in 5 days

I haven’t had my revenue updated in exactly 5 days either, I’m assuming it’s just a site-wide delay. Normally it updates every weekday, regardless of how many plays your game has.
I wouldn’t worry, and I’m glad to see I’m not the only one with the issue.

Cheers!

I hope you’ll give us back the link to newest games from the homepage on the next update. As mentioned above, removing the UJ games from tags and categories will just make it longer before they get their real rating. A lot of games already stay Under Judgement for too long, which wasn’t a problem when you used to link to those games through the homepage.

Agreed. Only a very small percentage of people browse the New Games, and with under judgement games not appearing in categories, New Games is now the only place to find them at first.

Having them in the spotlight even just for a while ensures it’ll get more plays, and then a much fairer rating.

Exactly. A bad game will get a bad rating, no matter where it pops up. The people will have their say and balance will return.
The new change just suffocates all new games, and people are going to have to resort to a lot of off-site promotion if they’re hoping to see much attention (maybe kong was hoping for that?)

Topic: Kongregate / Why my game is under judgement again?

You’re right, the changelist does mention under-judgement games being removed from categories, but it still doesn’t explain why some games have returned to under-judgement status.

Removing the under judgement games from tagged categories is a bad idea. Sure, the games can appear unfairly high on the list momentarily, but as soon as they get a single 1-star rating, down they go. As a developer I can confirm that having a game appear in the 5-star spot for a few minutes didn’t give me any unfair advantage, as I have games that have appeared at the top and then dropped like a rock down to 2-3 stars. Now games are just going to go unnoticed and stay in “under judgement” purgatory for a lot longer, and not enter the categories until they’re old news.

Topic: Kongregate / Why my game is under judgement again?

The same thing’s happened to me with this game http://www.kongregate.com/games/xyroclast/memorize-the-periodic-table
It had a star rating, and now it’s back under judgement. So the issue isn’t with Unity, as my game doesn’t use it.
Can someone confirm whether the criteria has changed, or if this is a glitch?
I’ve also noticed that the game no longer appears in any of the tagged categories (scoured through all of some of the shorter ones)

Topic: Technical Support / Cant get Minions to run

Sounds like it’s a problem with the game’s server, which would be owned by the developers, not kongregate, so your best bet would be to ask them

Topic: Technical Support / no revenue report for a game uploaded five days ago

None of my revenue has updated in 6 days, so it could just be that the whole site is experiencing a revenue update delay.

Topic: Technical Support / My Revenue Summary hasn't been updated since October 1st

Ah, that’s a relief; Thank you for checking in.
I wouldn’t normally mind, but I think that was the longest it’s ever been without an update, so I just wanted to make sure it was all working ok.
I appreciate how quickly you get back to people :)

Anyone else experiencing this?

Anyone know why it’s happening?

Topic: Game Programming / Unity Kong API Revenue

I’m really quite surprised that they’re not more forthcoming with that crucial info… Liolei, IS it on the help page somewhere and we just missed it?
Also, if anyone wants to visit my game in the interest of getting the testing up to 50, I’d appreciate it! It submits automatically. http://www.kongregate.com/games/xyroclast/voytek-prologue-to-madness

Topic: Technical Support / API integrated revenue still 40%

I’m having the same issue with my game, and I’ve had something like 18 people submit a score.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
I’d be very happy to see 40% turn into 50% one day.
