Topic: Game Programming / Is there a way to test stats are being reported?

Before publishing a game I used to add:
?debug_level=3
to the end of the URL so I can check all the stats are reporting correctly.

It doesn’t seem to be working any more though, has it been replaced with something else?

I approve of these suggestions and would love to see badges added to Red Remover Player Pack :)

Sounds good to me. For a more difficult badge (hard or impossible) I could also make the API track how many levels the player beats under par too.

Red Remover Player Pack
Tiger Woods (Hard – 30 points)
Beat 8 levels under par

I’ve got to be honest I think the impossible badge was a bad idea. It’s just making people want to cheat which is ruining the leaderboards. My guess is that 95% of people who get it will have cheated which voids the whole point of having a badge in the first place :(

Topic: General Gaming / Super Stacker 2 Walkthrough (now with Speedrun Vids!)

Hey, I’m the creator of Super Stacker 2!

My last 2 games to get badges were Super Stacker & Scriball. Super Stacker had relatively easy to achieve badges + after they were added the rating went up. Scriball on the other hand had harder badges + after they were added the rating went down.

In an ideal world they wouldn’t but in reality I think difficult/frustrating badges can hurt a games rating. That along with people complaining is probably why you’ve noticed badges getting easier!

Btw thanks the great video walkthroughs Tass :)
