Topic: Kongregate / Are bad translations some kind of new trend?

aren’t that easy, especially since programs can’t capture the nuances of the language that a native speaker understands.[/quote]

Programs are not suitable to translate things into german or even french. Both languages are too complex for automatic translators. Programs can better translate these languages into english, than english into these languages. Especially french is still way too complex for such translators.

of making forum posts that offer no alternative other than to ‘remove the feature entirely’, there are plenty of options to improve that feature that should hopefully make the site more accessible for all.[/quote]

The setting of this translation as default must at least be removed. It is still way too bad.

And as i said, every german, who plays games, knows the english words of the already translated parts. If you read the correct translations, you will understand why.

Action = Action
Multiplayer = Mehrspieler
Shooter = Shooter
Adventure & RPG = Abenteuer- und Rollenspiele
Sports & Racing = Sport- und Rennspiele
Strategy & Defense = Strategie und Verteidigung
Puzzle = Puzzle (or “Denkspiele”)
Music & More = Musik und Sonstige
Tutorials = Tutorials

So there is no reason to put this embarassing incomplete translation directly as default option online. Just remove the default option and let the german users help to correct the translation in the forum and wait until it is more complete and german users tell that this is actually helpful.

Topic: Kongregate / Are bad translations some kind of new trend?

understand that change is always something one have to get used to and it’s ok if you criticize… but imho not with the tone some of you are using here.[/quote]

This “change” is almost a insult for the german users. It is incomplete, it is wrong and the most worse about it, it is the default option! So the tone is a apropriate way to talk about. Maybe you know about apple maps. The translation here is even worse. While making maps is maybe really hard, the translation of basic menues uf a game website is very simple. Especially because enough german users are already here. And even if not any german is willing to help, there are plenty of german game websites, where one can compare the translation results. But what is done here? We get a bad and incomplete translation as a default option.

to all those whining Germans here:[/quote] Do you prefer, that we say nothing and go to other websites? Your problem. Many others like me prefer to tell and discuss the opinion about annoying things, if a possibility is given.

Topic: Kongregate / Are bad translations some kind of new trend?

I think this forum is there to contact Kong and discuss such things?

And yes, the language is not just incomplete. There are way too many incorrect and …uhm…lers say… very uncommon and unexpected terms used. And there are still only the easy parts, which has been translated.

I understand, that work may take a while to be completed. But it should be handled in the same way as incomplete games. It should be completed first and then published after completing. Especially if it is published as default options. You can be shure, that there are many german gamers, who wonder or laugh about these translations.

But the most fun part is, as i already told, that the most german gamers already know enough english to find the desired games. The most problematic part is the actual game and game description. If germans have problems with english, then these will occur here. If germans are even not able to find the way to the game in the english kong, they are definitly also not able to understand anything of the game nor the game description.

Topic: Kongregate / Are bad translations some kind of new trend?

I live in germany and have now the pleasure to enjoy the more or less made german translation. The result is a mix of poor german translation and english. It looks now like a bad joke!

Why do you do such bullshit? Most german gamers, who are here, speak enough english to understand the words, which are now translated! Its, because many good games are only available in english. They know, what “point and click” and “shooter” and “strategy” means. And every german, who is able to visit the internet, knows what a “bug” is, because “bug” is also german word.

The parts, where germans could have problems, are the game descriptions. And they become only helpful, if translated properly. Otherwise its way better to use only english.

Thats my opinion to this new change. I prefer a completely english kong. So, where is the option to deactivate this translation bullshit?

The deactivation of the HUD reduces the lag a lot! Its not easy to play without HUD, but much easier than to play with lag.

Topic: Astroflux / 1000 Flux to reset upgrades??

This game is not pay to win. One can not influence the gameplay with money enough to win it. And flux can be earned here in masses even, when one has not much time to spend.

Upgrading has consequences. In many games resetting is just impossible. So be lucky, that you can buy or earn Flux to reset the upgrades. Learn to think about first, before you buy something and dont complain because you have forgotten to think about.

Got the same problem. Its the blur effect.

@ Game developers: get rid of the very computing intensive Blur effect…. who cares about a blur effect on text? But if you need it, rework the code.

The blur effect of your texts requires more computing than many whole flash games with more complex graphics than your game.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heavens] Update the game please

Youre right. this is, what i also define as money grubbing. Only money would save my account from doom. But i will not pay a cent.

I would go to the the next game, if kong would give “me” new games, which i like. I playd already every game here, which i liked, completely through (I sayd, i play a lot). And last weeks are really poor. So im still here.

But i think soon is the next good or at least acceptable time consuming game here, and im gone forever. Till this time i waste some hours here.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heavens] Update the game please

The winners ring is not rare. I had already several of them and i always wear and use one without repairing. Every “Magic” loot occurs in enough masses during monster hunt, that no one needs to repair them. Sometimes one has to look through shops to replace one of the items, but this is rare.

Marfagames has just one advantage: He has many time to waste. Very many. Im a person who plays lot… really a lot. But im still far, far behind marfagames. This wasted time leads to medals. These medals leads to success in this game. The arguments of marfagames diamonds are bullshit. I had only 90 till now. And im one of the leading players! Only few player have as much time as me or even marfagames. Most have not the time to waste to get eben 30 diamonds in this time. They will never see invincible or gladiator medals beyond lvl 2. The on the tip of the blade or best of the best medals are adream for such players.

The balancing of this game depends much on luck and “wasted time”. Without much wasted time one gets NO medal or avatar which increases damage! And these are neccessary for doing something good at level 5 and beyond. Without damage bonus no win in arena. With no win in arena no more damage bonus. This is the problem, which i had since level 4. Level 5 even multiplicates the problem. My account is now dead, because i can use it only for monster hunt and even this is wasteful. I had not enough time to waste and payd nothing so i will not win.

Yes, the walls are better during common gameplay. Only for Duels i would suggest to put shields in front.

Vira moves to ONE target and focuses heal there. Sanctum spreads heal around its position to ALL targets, even if not damaged. Both can be advantage or disadvantage.

I would use some sanctums for walls+forts and removing small damages and some other healers for the harder work, if required.

I would not call this cheating. I would call this just time waste. Its not an advantage to have all stuff on one place. With korazons (or other penetrating weapons) can this thing be killed very effectively. Even common fighting is just a hell because all enemy fire hits these poor few structures. The 5 Seconds delay of the 5 beacons will be very long even during easy fights. Groups of enemys which can shoot above walls will bring the right fun, because you dont have the chance to see, what they hit. The 6 Viras will be a good canon fodder or a good way of passing the time (dragging them around the base), if a few more enemys surround the base or a boss shoots good.

I have the walls, becuse they are lvl 7. I have them in field, because i have them. Fadlings said it correctly. The wide base has its advantages in regenerating, which is the skill which i use mostly during gameplays. The enemys tend to spread the fire on the whole surface. If i put just one beacon in every corner, i dont have to fear to loose any unit in any boss fire, bevore rage is reached. I even dont need to look at them.

I need the Gold for the upgrades. The Ultrarares are not really cheap. With this pictured configuration can i make 1,000,000 Gold in one hard round in tesira (with steady clicking on taunt enemys, 600,000 in field and 300,000 bonus at end).

If i need Firepower, i put non-weapons in my unit-bank and weapons from the bank in the field. I said, its done in 3 minutes and can be even done during battle. But this is now the gold collection configuration.

Why make small? Its waste of time and reduction of flexibility. Make the base bigger than you need. So you can reconfigurate it fast (Goldgenerators in for Goldmissions (grinding to get upgrades), weapons in for fight missions, more healers in, if required) and even in field during fights.

Here how it looks now, while im collecting gold:
[url=http://postimage.org/image/8veavay8f/][img=http://s11.postimage.org/8veavay8f/base.jpg][/url] (Instead of the 3 dark barriers one can use another Inf. Fortress and adjust the walls a bit to close the gaps.)

3 Minutes and not much work later it is reconfigurated for fighting bosses. There is no need of wasting time with placing units.

If you got the Pseudo-Epic Ship you can get easyly 2-3 Million Gold per Level. Just replay the Level 24 or 25 with good healing technology and upgraded weapons. Buy first the Bonuslockskill and at every beginning of the level just lock the primary weapon of your ship.

Ok, its not the best, but even without missles you can destroy easyly more than 95 % or even 100 % of all enemys. The weapon is fast, strong enough, allways there and you get fast a realy good practice in using. And you must not be aware for bonuskillers. You need only to shoot and remove negative effects if ist happens. So every ship will explode, including red big ones and the guardians. You will even have time to kill the other ships which fly along when you are still working on killing big one or a guardian.

You will get the gold from bonusses and the bonus for destroying more than 95 % Enemys and sometimes the Bonus for collecting bonusses.
