Full screen flash?
Let me end this problem. Of course some games have issues in fullscreen. That is the issue for developing any game for the PC/Mac/Web platform.
There is a thing that developers need to do to support such a feature, and that is called “OPTIMIZATION”. A REAL developer will put the game through testing. If it doesn’t run well, then fix it.
I personally think it would be great to incorporate a fullscreen option on Kongregate. But only the staff allows the game to be played that way.
Lets picture a time when Kongregate adds the feature. You upload a game with the correct fullscreen code. You upload and check off the box that states “Can be played in fullscreen”. When the game passes through a moderator, they must test to see if the game is appropriate enough to be played in such a state. If it is, then the option is available, otherwise it will only be played in a window.
Another solution to the “Missing Chat window/Sidebar” is to incorporate an in-game system that displays all the information when you move your mouse to the right side of the screen. Just like youtube where the bottom bar hides until you move the mouse.
There are plenty of options. People just need to stop bitching about problems and start finding solutions.
The reason why I’m posting here on such a subject relies on the fact that I would love to add a full screen option to my future games. I want to offer some premium quality games to kongregate. So far only a couple of game ideas will suit the limited space.
Another option is to link the game to a fullscreen version (offsite) of the game, which connects to the Kongregate API. I might just do that for now.
