Topic: Off-topic / What's that film?

This can be a thred for others who want to know what that film was but can’t remember the title or any acting roles.

OK, here’s mine. I can’t remember the name of this film, in it there is scene where a girl is stood near a stringed instrument and a ghost or something tightens a string and it snaps and lashes across the left side of her face and left eye, and I think another character got a cup to put over the bleeding eye to stop blood getting in or something. Another scene, less description sorry, was when a boy (could be a girl actually) gets decapitated by a falling stone figure, looks like the head of a lion on the end of a barge beam, sorta cement or stone or something and it is hurtling from the top of the room and just gldies across down and the mouth catches this guy’s head in the jaws and keeps going into the wall. These scenes are set in an old, large house, haunted or something and I believe the characters were trying to escape the house, they were quite young (late teens to early twenties) and I think it could be a 90’s film, not sure though.

Thanks if you can help! :D

Topic: Kongregate / Philosophical Gaming

Wow, didn’t think I’d get this many responses. Thanks to all who understood what I meant. I think others kinda missed the point or it just devolved into a “I’ll plug my game and claim it’s good”.

I’ve updated my collection with the games that I was looking for. Any more would be terrific!

Thank you and have a nice day.

Yes, that’s a pretty good game there. Although no long term objective. And thanks guys for the games you suggested, I have had a very interesting night. Keep them coming please.

Topic: Kongregate / Philosophical Gaming

I’m looking for more games like these three:

Don’t Look Back
Loved
The Company of Myself

Unfortunately, games like these do not have their own category so I thought it would be easier to ask on the forums. If you are reading this and you haven’t played these games then I strongly suggest you try them out. I do not have any affiliation with any of the developers linked to these games, I just have a great passion for these games.

Anyway, to reiterate my main intention of this post, please could you either reply here or send me a message, or leave me a shout with any info on similar games like this or even any info on developers working on games like these.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat not loading

Setting that filter worked. Thank you very much for your help. I think this is the only “chat not loading” thread with a working solution. Hehe.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat not loading

Just tried that and the game and chat work fine on all of them until I re-enable Flashblock. The game and chat load fine with AdBlock Plus enabled too.

Why would Flashblock prevent chat from loading? And how can I fix it?

Topic: Technical Support / Chat not loading

I loaded Firefox in Safe Mode, ticking all of the boxes and it seems to be fixed. I tried a simple reboot and that didn’t fix anything. And yes, when I uninstalled Flash, I used their uninstaller and rebooted after-wards. Just downloaded and installed Chrome and Opera… The game and chat worked fine in both.

Do you know what it could be that is causing the problem. I would prefer a fix for this, rather than just a workaround; safe mode.

This definitely is not a Kong issue now. How foolish of me to think such a thing =]

Topic: Technical Support / Chat not loading

Hello. First of all, I’d like to say if you are reading this then I wish you have had a good day thus far and that you enjoy the remainder of this day.

My problem warrants the making of a new topic since my problem is different to that of others. My chat doesn’t load. Red icon, badges do not load or update. Here is a list of reasons why my problem is unique:

1. No software updates have occurred today, when my problem started.
2. Just to be sure, I have uninstalled and reinstalled latest Flash, Shockwave and Java software. No resolution.
3. I checked the ports (5222 and 5229) were forwarded on both my router firewall and computer firewall. No resolution.
4. Using Firefox’s very own cleaner and using CCleaner, I cleared all cookies, caches, history, forms etc. No resolution.
5. Games and chat work on IE so this isn’t a software issue, possibly a Firefox issue however.
6. This most likely a Kongregate issue, but not an issue for all. Probably an issue for certain accounts.

I would like to also describe another issue, although seemingly trivial, that is relevant. Playing Async Racing this morning was fun, no issues whatsoever. After about 4PM, the game and chat stopped loading (I right clicked the flash game and the option was “Movie not loaded…”. I fixed this with a simple Flash reinstall, the chat still did not load though. I then read and re-read all the threads on the Kong Community in an attempt to find any fixes for this issue and it seems no-one else has encountered this same issue.

So:
7. Computer was not turned off before this issue came about i.e. switching off my computer and any commands prompted by this could not have caused anything.

Other trivial thing are:
8. I have no scripts installed for Kongregate.
9. I have tried uninstalling all of my content blocking add-ons but this didn’t solve anything.

It would probably be useful to state I am using Firefox 3.6.3 with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and the latest Flash, Shockwave and Java versions, as of 25/05/2010 and I reside in England, UK. Any help would be greatly appreciated since I did not waste an entire day just to help myself and anyone else with this issue by digging up all this info and trying all sorts of possible solutions just to be ‘flamed’ (unless I have missed a simple fix ¬_¬).

Nope, wasn’t Juggerdome. It wasn’t any Mechanical Commado game either. It was like an arena and you fought other robots, and there was no side-scrolling of any kind.

Topic: Off-topic / Looking for some 8bit artists

Yeah I had a look on there and it didn’t seem like a very extensive list, plus I’m pretty much just looking for bands or artists who don’t have a label (i.e. independent) and also looking for people who like this kinda thing =D

Topic: General Gaming / How does the scoring system work on Gemcraft?

When I try getting a glowing frame on some levels, I can finish in less than 30 seconds (don’t know if that’s good or bad) and still be over 1million points short of getting a glowing frame. I build my gems with the low, medium and high starter gems and then just click next wave until the last one and they’re all gone. I sit all my gems as close as I can to the enemy base and they seldom get past my first tower.

So however the points system works, it’s probably not based on time.

Topic: Off-topic / Looking for some 8bit artists

Hey everyone,

Anyone out there now of some good chiptune or 8bit artists? Things I’m looking for are similar to Kola Kid, Sabrepulse, Henry Homesweet, Magnus Palsson and Crystal Castles (CC aren’t exactly 8 bit but I still like them). You could even post some of your own music that you have composed =D

I will be grateful for any replies
=D =D =D

Topic: Technical Support / Chat won't load :(

Disable Flashblock and AdBlock Plus.

I had this exact same problem and I forwarded my ports in both router and Windows firewall and added IP to hosts file and nothing. So I thought, hmmm I’ll play around with my add-ons, maybe some of them are messing with the connection and sure enough, disabling Flashblock and AdBlock Plus made the chat box reappear and now I can get badges and achievements.

I apologize if this cannot be a solution or if this solution does not work, but it worked for me.
