Topic: Kongregate / [How To] Get Kongregate Arcade to work on PC

There’s meant to be a way to get tilting controls to function on Bluestacks, but I’ve not managed to get it working so the Vector badges are still unattainable.

Topic: Kongregate / Ask a mod

It’s been known for joke-nominations of known trolls to happen. Very rarelythough, since there’s not really anything to see with the nominations page, so there’s not much in the way of lulz to be had. Most cases were misclicks or mistakes, I believe. No idea how the admins feel about it, since I’ve not made such a nomination myself. I expect it depends very much on how amusing the nomination text is, before they reject it.

Topic: Kongregate / Level capacity

Hi, I’m Bilious and I’m level 65.

I fully support expanding the level system to level 999, since the framework is already in place for it. Some users have come up with great new ideas for levels, but they would take effort to implement, this really wouldn’t. And then threads asking for the cap to be raised would stop.

That’s really impressive, just for how fast you did it considering the glitchiness of the last 10 levels.

Topic: Kongregate / Let's say...

I’ve been within 20 of having every badge, and I felt that most of the ones I was missing were attainable. However there are maybe half a dozen that, while I never intend to give up on them, it seems unrealistic of me to actually expect to get. I’m a better than average gamer, but far, far short of the top gamers on this site.

Overall I’d say you have to be pretty damn good to get every badge, but you could show off just as much gaming prowess by cherry picking about 50, since after that every other game is going to use the same skills but be easier in some manner.

Hello, adv0catus, i came here to ask a question, do you always have a spot for another Mod, or you kick a Mod, and they player replaces him?

The number of mods is not capped, or in a steady state.

Well, you can choose to hide it forever by clicking the X in the top right, and selecting the appropriate option. Or at least, you should be able to do that.

Not at the moment.

Topic: Kongregate / How many developers make games exclusively for Kongregate?

The games made by richpixel are Kong exclusive, since they hired him to make a few to get themselves started.

Topic: Kongregate / Ask a mod

People have been modded who had loads of bans and silences on their profiles, sometimes even fairly recently to their modding date. It’s unusual though, and is certainly taken into account when the admins decide.

Topic: Kongregate / Ask a mod

Mods used to be able to silence mods (and admins, I think), but the functionality was removed in early 2009.

Topic: Kongregate / Is there a reward for reaching certain levels?

Originally posted by CuriousGaming:

Developers can get the users level from the API. So someone could make a game that would reward higher level users in some way. Not sure why a developer would want to make a game like that though.

To make a game designed to appeal directly to Kongregate’s audience, and become relatively popular on the site if done well? Think Badge Master with gameplay elements.

Just play games that don’t have achievements, or games that have already have them earned. ShellShock Live 2 is a good one, but it is all up to you, buddy.

Make sure you don’t rate anything either! That gives you one point per first rating (up to 100 points in one day, >100 ratings in one day = 100 points) -—— good luck =D

You’re not actually able to rate games without getting points for it, once you rate 50 that’s it for the day.

Topic: Kongregate / Synecdoche, Kongregate [Tournament] Fin. Winner is BestMte

I don’t currently take part in tournaments because I think Kongregate takes more of my time than I ought to allow it as is. While I’m under no illusions that I might win a tournament I believe I’m a strong enough player to deliver the occasional upset and provide decent competition to most tournament players.

When I did take part in tournaments it was often to see how I did compared to other tournaments I’d been in, and to improve proportionally. Getting to top 25% where previously I only reached top 50%, etc. I was delighted when I managed to reach the finals of JimmyCarlos’ tournament (albeit with a large group for the finals) and made a point of posting a score in each game even though I wasn’t able to beat many of the other scores in the time alotted. Tournaments provide a framework for personal challenge as well as competition against others.

123aaa789 said it well… less than 1000 kongers are level 65. those who are level 65 usually don’t complain aboot level cap.

so you made it to level 65? awesome! congrats! way to go! something in life accomplished! if the cap was raised… you’d never make it… you’d never have that sense of accomplishment. some things are better with an ending. for me, i hit 65 a while ago. i still get points, i still get badges. i could really care less if my thing said 67 now.

it’s also difficult to raise the cap because you will affect cusp-riders… those that are near reaching 65.

also, the time it would take for people to reach something that mattered… is a lot. sure, some people can cheaply gain points (eg: rate 50 games a day), but for most people level 65 itself isn’t even feasible. i’m more than casual, and it took me a few years.

tons of people are 65, but 99.99% are not (and you will never be)

I’m level 65. Please don’t claim to speak for me. I disagree with pretty much all of this post.

really? feel free to elaborate on “pretty much all of this post” that you disagree with :)

65 isn’t broken at all, except in the minds of people that think it is.

I disagree, if it wasn’t broken at all this thread wouldn’t come up so frequently.

123aaa789 said it well… less than 1000 kongers are level 65.

I disagree, fewer than 1000 kongers are level 65.

those who are level 65 usually don’t complain aboot level cap.

I disagree.

I disagree with the tone, though naturally your opinions are your own.

I disagree, they’re irrelevant.

I disagree, it gets easier by the day, and 65 is purely arbitrary anyway.

tons of people are 65, but 99.99% are not (and you will never be)

I disagree, I am 65. Also, contradicts your second paragraph, for whatever that’s worth.
